anjaamI left two extremely busy days behind struggling to catch up with the workload at office. Days were quite killing yet i am alive! 😀 On these miserable days of mine, my unique supporter was (bilkul) Shahrukh Khan 😛 I wouldn’t have been able to overcome the nights of those hectic days without his golden movies refreshing my mind taking me far away from where i am keeping every stressing thing out of my mind and surrounding my soul with sarees, bindiyas, bending eye-brows, ‘bada bada’ tear drops, romance-full dancing scenes, scenes from real India and its rural people, and lovely songs finding life in velvet voices. Ahh!! Such a long sentence for such a sharp feeling…Let me summarize…Anjaam & Karan Arjun under the scope of Shah Rukh Khan 😀

When i found these movies, i had no idea what they were about. Yet soon i discovered that Anjaam depicts SRK as a maniac whereas K&A describes him as a lover, a dedicated son and a brother. Isn’t it weird that an Indian man named SRK fits each and every role perfectly as if he is a dedicatedly maniac born lover 😛

In Anjaam, Madhuri Dixit accompanies him. She acts as the woman (Shivani) with whom SRK (Vijay) is deadly in love, which is to be turned into an obsession soon. Although Madhuri gets married and has kids and leads a happy life with her family, that does not prevent him from getting what he wants, aka Shivani. And this endless obssesion causes the death or the injury of the half of the cast!!!

The catchy thing in the movie (apart from SRK of course) is the amazing dancing skills of Madhuri!

I always love SRK when he is a romantic hero saying “Raj naam to suna hoga” or “main hoon na”; however i should confess that even the obsessiveness fits him when it is about love 😀

At the end of this high-action movie, i could not decide whether the end is happy or sad as it varies from different angles. Let me know if you watch the movie and arrive at a decision. Theek?!

Karan%20ArjunHowever, in Karan Arjun, we are again face to face with a SRK who is brave, strong, intelligent, good at fighting, good at loving, romantic with a fierce or emotional looks according to the situation. Salman Khan and Kajol share the scene with him. I guess i repeated now and then that i don’t like Salman Khan at all but after this move (seeing his face carrying a teenage innocence) my hard feelings started to melt a bit! As for Kajol, she is like a perfect match for SRK with her simplicity and purity. Here the topic line is quite random for the ones who believes in reincarnation and quite odd for the non-believers and very interesting for both sides because here we witness the re-birth of the very same persons, Karan and Arjun to take the revenge both for their restless souls and for their unfortunate mother. The movie is a really good example of family bonds, and encourages one to have strong belief in whatever they believe!

I loved the soundtrack of Karan Arjun and the dance scene where SRK and Kajol jumps and hops like little kids at a stray house. You wana see proof? See below 😀

P.S.: Curious about my rating? 4/5 for Anjaam and 5/5 for Karan Arjun, and 10/5 for SRK 😛

gangaajal-2003My Sunday movie was one from Bollywood named Gangaajal with the leading actor Ajay Devgan. Although i am not a big fan of Ajay, considering his acting skills, i thought to go for this movie and clearly i didn’t regret it.

The movie is basically about a Superintendent Police (SP) who has been recently sent to Tejpur in Bihar on duty. After a short discovery around, he soon finds out that Tejpur is a place where folk is supressed by the cooperation between the police forces (misusing their duties) and the bandits of the place itself who have all the money so the power.

The new SP (Amit Kumar) stands up and fights against those evil people who have been ruling Tejpur people by threatening, torturing, stealing, deceiving. Now Amit Kumar is the only man standing on their way!

The movie takes its name from a way of punishment developed with some furious people whose only target is to revenge, to punish, to reveal their anger; and this way is nothing else apart from smashing people’s eyes and burning them with gangaajal (acid).

This is just one of the incidents to be inspected and prevented by Amit Kumar. And he is supposed to deal with more than this! Whether Amit wins the battle or he is removed from the way just like others is a mystery to be solved by you after watching the movie:)

I rate this movie as 4/5 as it is a bit long and too many repetitions there are on the same stuff. However, Ajay’s acting and the topic-basis surely worth watching.

aloo_chaat_photo1Returning from America after completing his education, Nikhil is forced to get married to a girl chosen by his parents in line with their religion and tradition. However, Nikhil’s parants are totally unaware of the fact that he is already in love with a muslim girl, Aamna,  whom he met in America. Being sure that his orthodox father will never allow his marriage with a muslim girl, Nikhil consults his uncle for his help. They make a plan together to persuade Nikhil’s father and the rest of the family. According to this plan Nikhil tells his father he wants to marry an American girl Nikki, who is hired for the play and soon afterwards he brings both Nikki and Aamna (as Nikki’s friend) to their home for introduction and marriage preparations. Meanwhile, showing Nikki’s faults and Aamna’s good behaviour, he dreams of proving that religion is not an issue in love! However, Nikhil seems not to consider a series of mischances to occur in the plan itself…

This is the basic storyline of the movie without any detail. Time to time i remind myself of not watching any Bollywood movie whose cast i have never heard of, however sometimes i ignore my inner voice and i want to give a try to such movies. Reading the topic line, no need to mention that it was a chick-flick one without any special peculiarity, without bringing anything new into scene, or without providing any good music for the audience.

A pure timepass, or in more true words, a total timewaste deserving just 2/5…

 On one hand, an old film producer who already lost his popularity within the industry and experiencing the bitter face of bankruptcy. 

On the other hand, an accountant whose main work principle is honesty, which keeps him poor all his life and prevents him from marrying her future wife.

When the minds of these two merge in one project, the result is quite tragicomical…Being partners they plan to make a film through an illegal way which is aimed to be shown as legal. And at the core of their plan lies a flop movie that backfires and turns into a big hit causing a turmoil in their lives!

 In the movie we saw some funny references and teasers to some old movies such as Sholay, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Lagaan…

The cast (Kunal Khemu, Sonu Sood, Soha Ali Khan, Paresh Rawal) is quite in conformity with the storyline…

All in all it was a good laughter providing some relaxation keeping the audience from any reality, which is a fact which i like most about the comedy genre…

My rate 4/5!

Attention: This is the story of Sanju and Anju. Not a third one is allowed in between 😆

Mere Yaar Ki Shadi Hai is a classical bollywood movie with many lively or romantic dance scenes and colorful, eye-catching filmi costumes, however far from catching the audience itself being lack of creativity and despite having references/inpirations from other famous bollywood movies, not being able to get rif of getting labelled as a “copy” of this and that…

The cast is not a strong one; for sure i had seen Uday Chopra in movies like Mohabbatein or Dhoom, and also Bipasha Basu in Bachna Ae Haseeno and others, Jimmy Shergill in again Mohabbatein and others, Tulip Joshi in Dokha or Superstar; still none of them sound/seem strong to me to cover a whole movie. What i mean to say is that when they act and sing under Shah Rukh Khan or under Hrithik Roshan or Abhishek Bachan, they look quite talented but when they try to manage a scenario by themselves, i find it insufficient as in missing a gist or as in being far away from keeping the soul of the movie alive. (May be that is a personal problem of mine as i am quite used to watching bollywood movies with superstars 🙂 )

The storyline is quite familiar one…There is a woman loved by two men at the same time. One is childhood friend, a bit badmash, a bit crazy, funny yet loving and caring. The other is newly met, handsome, cool, shortly carrying all the perfect criteria required for a marriage. First our heroine is unaware of her feelings, then gets confused and indecisive and finally comes to know what her heart wishes for.

The movie smells a bit Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, a bit Mohabbatein, a bit Main Hoon Na among the bollywood movies and kind of inspired from My Best Friend’s Wedding (1997-Julia Roberts). I am not saying it is an exact copy or a ruined dublicate of these movies but it captures some bits and pieces, which i believe do not disturb the audience.

The best thing in the movie is its songs…Ek Ladki, Sharara, Mere Yaar Ki Shadi Hai, Jaage Jaage, Humne Suna Hai, Hum Dono Jaisa…I can say I loved each one of them but especially Sharara.

Sharara

Ek Ladki

Mere Yaar Ki Shadi Hai

Humne Suna Hai

Jaage Jaage

Hum Dono Jaisa

Overall, it cannot be categorized as a bad movie as it still provides the audience with some nice timepass showing all the fancy items of bollywood. Still my eyes were searching for Shah Rukh Khan when the heros and heroines were dancing among the mountains being dressed in their best suits and trying to look as if intoxicated by love!

My rate: 3/5!

Since i watched the movie aashiqui, i have been a big fan of Rahul Roy, and again since then i have been searching on net about his life, his career, his films, his photos, his videos, etc. Being out of India, it seems it is almost impossible for me to reach his movies, especially the old ones…And net search results are not so brilliant as well…

However what i got from Wikipedia is that,

Rahul Roy (born February 9, 1968) is an Indian film actor, who works in Bollywood films. He debuted in the hit Mahesh Bhatt production Aashiqui (1990) for which he is famous for. His popularity increased with the 1992 film Sapne Saajan Ke, in which he was helped by having the music of Nadeem Shravan, with Kumar Sanu’s vocals, that he picturised. His most famous hits include “Tu Meri Zindagi Hai” and “Ab Tere Bin Jee Lenge Hum” and “Jaane Jigar Jaan-e-Man”. He was also one of the first Hindi film actors who fashioned the long hair mane. Subsequent to his first movie’s resounding success, star wannabes rushed to the salons asking for a “Rahul Roy” haircut. He won the game show Bigg Boss by public vote. Bigg Boss was the Indian version of Celebrity Big Brother, currently being produced by Endemol India for Sony Entertainment Television.

Rahul began his acting career in the 1990 film Aashiqui, a Mahesh Bhatt production as the lead actor with newcomer Anu Agarwal. The film was a hit and made him a popular actor and was the reason, he is known for. He was one of the first ever Hindi film actors who fashioned the long hair. After his resounding success in Aashiqui, he worked in another romantic hit, Sapne Saajan Ke (1992) with Karisma Kapoor. He worked in several romantic films throughout early 1990s, but the movies did not do well. In late 1990s, he appeared in movies as a supporting actor in hit movies because his films as a lead actor flopped.

After his film Aashiq (2001), Roy didn’t act in films for several years. He returned to acting after four years in Meri Aashiqui (2005), in which he was the lead actor. His most recent film was the comedy film, Naughty Boy (2006). He also appeared on television program Bigg Boss, Indian version of Celebrity Big Brother in 2006. He won the game show by public votes on January 26, 2007.

Well, although the luck, fate, life or whatever it is, did not smile at him pretty much, at least he still have strong fans like me :p I wish he could produce much more movies during 90s…Below is the video of one of the famous song “tu meri zindagi hai” (You are my life) from the movie Aashiqui…Before finishing my post, let me put a note here: If you know any site or any way to see his movies, please do contact me 🙂

aashiqui I found this movie on net just by chance. I had never heard about it before but looking at its poster it seemed to me it was full of extreme romance and i was not wrong at all…

It is about two lovers, the strength of whose love is exposed to a series of tests consisting of the obtacles life brings forward. It was one of those classical yet fascinating bollywod movies of 90s with all those weird hairstyles and clothes (which we were admiring so much at those times 😆 )

The movie is full of slow-flow romantic songs from the start to the end quite frequently…My favourites are mein duniya bhulangi and jaana jiger janemann.

The real thing i want to point out is about the leading actor Rahul Roy. I had never seen him before neither heard about him. So when the movie started and when i met him first time, i was asking myself  “who is this skiny kido?”…In the coming minutes my eyes started to get used to him and surprisingly i found him quite cute and talented in the next 30 minutes. I was so impatient to “google” him even not to wait for the movie end. And the shock was lying within the google image pages for me 😡  See how that little kid turned into an adult and note how much he changed…

In my view, the way he looks might still be the same yet the emotions it conveys, the energy it renders have totally changed.

Now i got to know why i am scared of the TIME and the things it can do to us…And now i know it is important what you leave behind when you leave this world, it is important how the people will remember you…As i said i don’t know much about Rahul Roy, i have no idea what he could succeed or could not but i can say he gained another fan (me) in his fan circle not because of this movie itself but because of his really natural acting, his innocent looks, and cute smile within this movie…

My rate: 3/5!
