On movies

A few days back I, Srirang and Bhargava were having this discussion on bollywood movies when I realized that I had missed out on a lot of good movies. For example, till yesterday I didn't watch Rang De Basanti. Not that I never got the time to watch it. But then better late than never!!

The film was awesome and would very easily be one the best movies I've ever seen. But the most impressive were the dialogues in the movie. I felt they were kinda inspirational. It was the first movie of Soha Ali Khan that I had seen and so I don't know whether she is really a good actor or she acted very awesome only in this movie... I guess it was the talent of Aamir Khan which inspired everyone to act really well.

So what's next??

I plan on covering a few more movies which are tagged as a "must see" like

1. Munnabhai MBBS
I really wanna watch this movie. They say it has a mix of everything and it's a bit senti towards the end too! It might seem a bit amusing but I have seen Lago Raho Munnabhai. Lago Raho... was nice. I actually saw it bacause I sorta like Vidya Balan :D

2. Dil Chahta Hai
Another cult movie. People sometimes laugh that I never saw this movie. The problem is I can't get hold of the movie!!

3. The last 45 min of Lagaan
Actually I was watching this one at home when power went off and I could never see the last 45 min... as above can't seem to find this anywhere either!!

4. Taare Zameen Par
My cousins actually stopped talking to me for a week or two when I told them I didn't watch this movie!! This will be the movie I'll cover first. By the time you are reading this post, hopefully, I would have covered the movie!!

5. Chak De India
One more of those inspirational movies, Srirang calls it a must watch movie and has also told me that I should cover it immediately after Taare Zameen Par.

I'm planning on covering these movies and then maybe i'll check on a few hollywood movies too. Did I ever tell you that Forrest Gump is the only movie of Tom Hanks I've ever seen?? :D

Crappy Point#1 : This post has been as a draft for quite sometime now... Thought let's post it!

Crappy Point#2 : Went to attend a Blogger's meet in MS campus yesterday. Nice Campus, nice food, nice people, boring session... :(

There's no point watching these movies if you haven't yet seen Gunda and Loha.

Only the true devotees of Lord Mithunda will go to heaven, all others will rot in hell.

The choice is yours.
