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 🙂

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!

Although it has been more than a week since i watched this movie, I could not have time at all to review it as these days time has gained more value 🙂
In this movie i came across many familiar faces such as Irfan Khan (lately took place in Billu Barber), Rahul Bose, Rahul Khanna (whom i first seen in the movie Bollywood/Hollywood, Konkona Sen Sharma (whom i really like especially after her appearance in Aaj Nachle) and Soha Ali Khan (at whom I was amazed in Rang De Basanti).
It is basically about the relations of husbands and wives in married lives and their approach at ‘outsiders’. It starts with the divorce decision of a married couple who already lost the soul of their marriage. Their best friends (who are also a married couple) quite criticise the decision but at the same time they start to question their own marriage life as well. We see some minor details regarding a cheating husband, a wife trying to save a marriage, a woman trying to gain a relation, another husband pretending to be loyal to his wife but indeed already giving up on her in his mind, another wife looking so happy being married but in fact quite confused in deep and some other people passing by their lives in between.
What happens in the end…Lust is proved to be a strong feeling but still to be a temporary one and decreasing in time on the contrary to love and showing only true and sincere love (not the artificial infatuation) can resist any kind of obstacle.
What I liked most in this movie is the fun side of it. It is decorated with some “laughter items” making the audience smile even at the bitter truths accepting the life as it is.
Soundtrack is a good one as well. My favourite song from this movie is “Zindagi Yeh” among the following ones:
2. Uthale Ya Phenk De
3. Zindagi Ye
4. Ok Tata Done
5. Nasha Nashila
6. Ehsaan [Remix]
7. Zindagi Ye [Rock Version]
Overall it is a time-pass movie still with lots of messages to deliver deserving a 3/5 from me 🙂
