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 🙂

i am so happy that i got the chance to see Billu Barber so early as it is almost an impossible dream to obtain hindi movies so easily and early for me (reason is we do not have a bollywood cinema in Turkey plus there is such a low possibility to find a Bollywood movie in a DVD store…yea i can hear you saying unlukcy you:x).

Well i won’t go into the subject matter of the movie considering that you  must already have read countless reviews on some other blogs or sites. So to save you from another “repeat-read”, i just want to share my opinions about the movie.

The cast (Shah Rukh Khan, Irfan Khan, Lara Dutta) together with some special apperances such as Deepika, Kareena and Priyanka makes the movie quite strong and already lessens the percentage of being a flop. If you are a regular viewer of my blog, you already know what i think about SRK’s himself and acting, so naturally i loved the movie but not only due to SRK. Irfan Khan is also very talented as per acting. He just lose and melt in his role forgetting real himself. I haven’t seen a Lara Dutta movie before (except a few videos on youtube) but i liked her as well. She looks pure, her facial expressions carry some kind of peace.  And of course the guests of the movie were breath-taking being both charming and sexy.

What else…

  • Topic of the movie was not so creative or interesting but motivating the humanly feelings to come to surface.
  • Costumes were really cool, especially the dresses Kareena wears during the Marjani part.
  • Songs are catchy. Accelarating the steps and the heartbeats. My favourite from this soundtrack is Mera Love Hit Hit -Highly Recommended.
  • During the scenes when SRK appears, i stopped both blinking and breathing 😆
  • And lastly, during the whole movie i wondered quite a lot what SRK feels when his fans fall off a tree branch and get hurt.

Overall, it is a nice movie, not a flop like Yuvraaj (Sorry Katty and Salman-ji :P). And my rate is 5/5.
