Oru Indian Pranayakadha–Malayalam

 

Oru Indian

We one again meet up with Fahadh Fassil. This time as an aspiring politician and a failure, Aymanam Sidharthan ends up as an assistant to documentary maker Canadian Malyali, Irene Gardner (Amala Paul). The movie transcends easily between the sophisticated chic of Canada and rustic bare bone simplify of Kerala in the form of Amala and Fassil. Another good entertainer and fun for the whole family. Amala looks good and can act. Fassil, like many of his male predecessors becomes the character effortlessly. Clad in white shirt and white dhoti half mast, he is your quintessential Malayali Chetan. I Like his work a lot. He is here for a long innings and many good ones too.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan Poster.jpg

Jab Tak Hai Jaan (English: As Long as There is Life, Hindi, 2012 directed by Yash Chopra featuring Shahrukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in lead roles.

Boy (Sharukh) meets (where else : London) girl (Katrina). Boy likes girl, Girl likes boy. Then girl decides not to like boy. Boy goes back to India. New girl (Anushka) likes boy. Boy returns to London. Old girl now likes boy. All iz well. Stereotypical Hindi movie. Escapism at the heart. Lively cinematography. Good performance by Anushka. For a change you can watch Sharukh. Friday evening sit and go through movie.

Well done abba–Hindi

Shyam Benegal has directed this interesting movie. Another take on corruption in India. But what a twist. Armann Ali (Boman Irani), a driver working in Mumbai comes back to his village in AP to get his daughter (Minisha Lamba) married. Gets into the ‘chakkar’ of making a well with Government aid or what is left of it after all the bribes. Then the well gets stolen ! You ask ‘What’!?. See the movie. Boman (double role) and Minisha have given crisp performances and keeps you laughing. Refreshing to see Hindi movie makes venturing new grounds.  The inevitable romance is there but as a gentle and soft background. Hats off! to Boman. Minissha has done a good job too. Entertaining family movie.   Perhaps the title ‘Bawvdi ki Koj’ is more apt .  G ratedthreepointfive

Dil Dhadakne Do–Hindi

First Look Poster of Dil Dhadakne Do.jpg

 The Akhtar’s are a talented lot. With Zoya directing, Farhan Producing ( acting) with  dad Javed giving a hand, this movie is pure entertainment. Set in a background of  posh Cruise Ship and Turkey, the movie is about Delhi millionaire’s life. We sat there for nearly three hours enjoying the big screen and the drama. With a star studded cast there is no dearth of high end actors and actresses. But the true hero is Pluto (bullmastiff dog) voiced by Aamir Khan. Lives up to it’s name. What  a blast!

Definitely a theatre movie and a good way to spend three lazy hours. Leave sentiments and judgements, go on a cruise and enjoy.
