The last weekend was so much fun! With friends having come down from Pune, we roamed around and watched two movies on consecutive days. 🙂
On Saturday, we went to Bol Bachchan. OMG! I found it a b-o-r-e. It was a big screen Comedy Circus. The movie was filled with people from the show. The comedians, Krishna, VIP (thankfully Saloni ko nahi liya), the judge Archana Puran Singh, yahan tak ki jokes bhi!! Abominable! I felt that Rohit Shetty got out of the judge’s seat, took everyone around and made a movie. Probably the only person who was paid for the movie was Abhishek Bachchan. Ajay Devgan produced it himself and the heroines had miniature roles. 🙂 At the beginning of the movie Amitabh Bachchan says “movie mein hum hai nahi, sirf humara naam hi hai”. By the end of the movie I felt, “thank god! aap nahi the”. Ajay Devgan, I guess is having difficulty getting out of the Singham mode. 😀 Probably the only other movie which I had found worse than this was Houseful. I had slept off in the theatre, when watching that. 😀 Overall, if you are a person who enjoys the jokes on comedy circus, you might enjoy the movie. Some of the dialogues with Ajay Devgan’s English translation was funny. Prachi Desai looked pretty as ever! I am not too fond of Asin, so no comments on her. 😛
Sunday, we watched Cocktail. It was a fun movie. One time watch. In my opinion, the new girl Diana is pretty and good at acting too.. Saif was his usual self. In fact I laughed much more on the jokes in this movie than the former. But his age has started to show. Gone are the days of DCH. 😦 Deepika looks amazing! Wish she could act equally good. 😛 A typical, modern day love triangle, fun to watch if you go with friends. The name of Saif’s character in the movie is Gautam. There was this huge group who had come to watch the movie and were sitting in a row in front of us. There was a guy by the same name in their group. The entire time, the others in the group kept pulling his leg and bursting out into loud laughter at the jokes. 😀 Great fun!
But, come to think of it, none of the movies nowadays are heart touching. They don’t leave an impression on you. It’s just become entertainment for a couple of hours. There used to be movies which moved us.Anand was one such movie for me. I have always liked Rajesh Khanna and loved many of his movies. Like they say, all good things have to come to an end. 😦 May his soul Rest In Peace.
Talking of movies, I saw Letters to Juliet, once again. 🙂 I love this movie! It’s amazingly romantic. Leaving you with a hope and dream. If you haven’t watched it yet, then please do!
