Long break i gave i believe and yet i didn’t manage to see many movies or read many books in the meantime; still i watched four movies which are all from 2009 and both from Bollywood and Hollywood…
First one is “Blue” by Akshay Khanna, Sanjay Dutt, Lara Dutta, Katrina Kaif and Zayed Khan. It was about some kind of so-called complicated plans and projects about some money buried under water and some theories and tricks to get this money and put it on the right hands. Considering this simple tagline, although the movie should be a breath-taking adventure both under and on water, it was just a waste of time and nothing. There were surely some eye-candies such as Katrina, Lara and even Kylie Minogue as a guest appearence, even these were not enough to bring some life to it. So my rate is 1/5. And this 1 point goes to “Chiggy Wiggy” song sung by Kylie Minogue herself.
The second movie from Bollywood is “Tum Mile” by Emraan Hashmi and Soha Ali Khan. As it is suggested by the title, it is a love story…about a bond between two people, which is challenging yet indispensible. This movie was relatively better as both subject and cast. The soundtrack was also remarkable, my favourite being “Dil Ibaadat” and “Tu Hi Haqeeqat” hence getting a 4/5 from me.
Third one is 2012 from Hollywood for which i had waited to see impatiently for a long time. I can shortly say it was not a perfect and rational action movie yet it was quite strong both on topic-line and acting skills. It was a nice time-pass with some scenes to be watched without even blinking and without getting bored as a whole, so getting 5/5 from me.
And the last movie of this post is 500 Days of Summer, which is quite a different one as a format. It was in a direct story-telling format rather than a routine movie continuence, hence there were lots of flashbacks and flashforwards which was making the movie more interesting. It was both a love and a separation story including deep psychological analyses, getting 4/5 from me.
That is all for today. I may lost again for some time considering the new year celebrations. So let me use this opportunity to wish all of you a joyous christmas and a happy new year 🙂
