Anastasia! That was the name of the girl who opened the door. Of course, Mickey and Donald and Tom and Jerry have always been there, but Anastasia was the one who made me fall in love with Animation movies. She still remains my first love. :) Then I saw something drastically different. It completely bowled

Tags: , , , , , , , , |

My blog is fast turning into a Movie Blog! One of my new year resolutions will be to write less BC posts. Maybe 1 in two months. Anyways, here I present the list of noteworthy movies of 2008, taking forward the tradition I started last year by providing the readers with the Best of Bollywood

Rab ne bana di jodi – Movie Review

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

I hate to be the harbinger of bad news but someone has to do the job. The movie could have been the "coming of age" of love stories and it was steering that way in the initial 30 minutes but then somehow nosedived and went deep into the abyss of the cliched. Before going into

The Chosen One

Before you jump to the conclusion that its a personal(*yawn*) rant post or a post-Matrix burst out or a spiritual healing session, then relax. Its just about apun ka Bollywood. So sit back and enjoy the ride. :)  I have been quite surprised by this recurring phenomenon in Movies. Have you ever noticed that when

Rock On – Movie Review

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Some old photographs in a box - forgotten friends and dreams - a compromised life - success without happiness - a chance meeting with an old friend and nothing to talk - picking up the pieces of an unfinished story - that's Rock on. Many of us have gone through such feelings, when we have

Love Story 2050 – Movie Review

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

What could have been the first Indian sci-fi movie and a turning point in the Indian cinema turns out to be a damp squib. The movie reminded me of 10,000 B.C. and Jhoom Barabar Jhoom. 10,000 B.C. because the promo of the movie were very promising to say the least and Jhoom Barabar Jhoom because

Sarkar Raj – Movie Review

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

After shocking and terrifying the masses with "RGV ki Aag" and "Darling", Ram Gopal Verma is back with the sequel of his most successful movie in recent times - Sarkar. Frankly speaking, I could never understand how a director who made Satya, can make movies like Aag. Thankfully, Sarkar Raj pulls up Ramu and he

Bhoothnath – Movie Review

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Bhoothnath was never supposed to be something unusual or special. The promos were not very impressive and the moment you saw them, you knew the story. That somehow worked in the favour of the movie. Its not that its great, but its enjoyable. Its kiddie stuff with a terrible baghban-ish, Yawn-ish twist at the end.

Tashan – Movie Review

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

When you start believing that life can't get worst, it suddenly does. This is what how an experience like Tashan can be summed up after watching movies like Race and U Me Aur Hum. Race at least had a constant oomph factor oozing out of each frame and an over-doze of twists and turns to
