MIXED DOUBLES (2006)
Director: Rajat Kapoor. Cast: Konkona Sen Sharma, Ranvir Shorey, Koël Purie, Vinay Pathak, Rajat Kapoor.
grin love smile
I enjoyed it! Funny, believable, well made and different. Koko does her thing brilliantly, and she looks great too. Ranvir and his character (Sunil) are both very, very interesting and I enjoyed watching how my feelings for Sunil changed over the course of the story. He doesn’t look great in the movie though, and I really admire him all the more for that; it added a lot. I love small, interesting, indie kind of movies like this!

Great performance av Ajay and Bipasha looks absolutely stunning as always; good performance by her too. The story didn’t really draw me in, though… Loved the rope skipping in prison bit (Ajay + Nana), too funny!!

Haha, I love that she landed in India, you couldn’t possibly find a better place to learn about love :) Cute and fun, silly and enjoyable! Loved how they used/borrowed Bade deshon mein aisi choti choti baati hoti rehti hai :)
The ending was a bit dragged out and repetitive, but it wasn’t too bad. Most of all I loved Riteish, he really brought out the best in his character!

Telugu film. I enjoyed it a lot!! Well made. What I loved the most was the relationship between Mahesh and Trisha’s characters, and all the silly banter between them :) Loooved all the gorgeous half sarees..!

Absolutely outstanding performance by Hrithik; awesome beyond words… wow… I could really feel him… The story on the other hand, didn’t feel very fresh or unique. It’s a sexy film, too. I enjoyed it lots!

yum innocent
Vivek is really, really cute and adorable! Hehee :) The story isn’t very engaging and Fardeen isn’t very interesting, but as a whole it’s timepass. I found the action scenes disturbingly gross in contrast to the overall sweetness of the film.

Yay for Shahid! He’s awesome :) I enjoyed this film, but it didn’t really draw me in; I can’t really put my finger on why. Chaska is such a great, fun song :)

Aww, Vivek… <3 I love watching him on screen, and that’s quite enough for me to really enjoy this film! Great performance, fantastic energy and awesome music. The suspension bridge scene made my stomach twirl, hehee :)

HUM TUM AUR GHOST (2010)
Director: Kabeer Kaushik. Cast: Arshad Warsi, Diya Mirza, Boman Irani, Sandhya Mridul.
love bittersweet grin yum
Sweet – or bittersweet, if you will – fun, touching and has a lovely feel to it. I really enjoyed it! It’s very beautifully made and feels well thought-through, complete with believable characters, true-to-life relationships and a coherent, intriguing story. Arshad and Dia’s performances are brilliant, they both look amazing and there’s delicious, real chemistry between them as well :) Sandhya added a lot of great energy too, she did really well. As for Boman, I’d have to say this is one of the roles I’ve liked him the most in (he usually tend to get on my nerves…). I love how he is both hilarious and deeply serious, moving seamlessly from one to the other. There are some very good strongly emotional moments and sequences, so intense they actually gave me a good wee cry or two… I’m not a very easy person to please when it comes to comedy, but the humour of HTAG totally works. Outstanding cinematography as well.

DIL HAI KI MANTA NAHIN (1991)
Director: Mahesh Bhatt. Cast: Aamir Khan, Pooja Bhatt, Anupam Kher.
grin love thumbsup
Dancing flowers, really?? Yuk… Besides that, it’s a really sweet and enjoyable film with a wonderfully good feel. Aamir is dead cute and adorable, and Anupam very funny. The biggest tease of this film was that damn topi… I can’t even begin to tell you how desperately I was hoping for it to disappear, and yet every time it returned… And that melon licking scene, hehee… very memorable! ;)

Avdelare

HUMSE BADHKAR KAUN: THE ENTERTAINER (1998)
Director: Deepak Anand. Cast: Saif Ali Khan, Sunil Shetty.
smile smile grin
Saif is adorable!! Really liked his character in this one, but I can’t put my finger on exactly why that it is… It feels like one of those films that you could make a hundred interesting screencaps from. Plenty of dishoom, mullet, brotherly love and a very irritating parrot. I liked it! Line maar le le baba line maar le is totally stuck in my head, and it’s probably the funniest part of the film too :)

Avdelare

GHAJINI (2005)
Director: A.R. Murugadoss. Cast: Surya, Asin.
yum love bittersweet crying horrified
It was the first Tamil film I ever watched, and I absolutely loved it. I’ve rewatched it several times since. Surya is absolutely amazing! Great story, fantastic performances, excellent direction – what’s not to like about this film?! Well, maybe the excess violence… I really really enjoyed this one :)

Avdelare

AARZOO (1999)
Director: Lawrence D’Souza. Cast: Saif Ali Khan, Akshay Kumar, Madhuri Dixit.
grin silly crying music
Sakshay! ? Mein Aa Raha Hoon Wapas had me laughing so hard I could barely breathe… superbly mulletastic! I loved that Saif got to do some proper fighting in this film (see, I told you he’s NOT just Akki’s sidekick!!). The first half was hilarious and quite cheesy, while the second half surprised me with a completly different feel; it actually even had me crying at the end. As a whole, it’s not as predictable as you would tend to suspect. There’s some fabulous dancing, quite a lot of extremely silly dancing and it seemed like the mullet had generously been given a choreography of its own. Evil Akshay was a fun variation. I love the Sakshay jodi, bas.

Avdelare

REHNAA HAI TERE DIL MEIN (2001)
Director: Gautham Menon. Cast: Madhavan, Saif Ali Khan, Diya Mirza, Anupam Kher.
zzz love
The first half is quite boring, to be honest. I’m not really a fan of Madhavan, so I keep catching myself waiting for Saif to come on screen. Diya on the other hand is very, very likeable. Saif & Diya look awesome together; lovely chemistry between them! When Saif finally comes back, it’s in a muchly laughable way… That song they are playing when he’s on stage is just horrible, doesn’t fit the picturization by miles! And the random running in the streets, shirtless… *sigh* I loved that Diya’s character actually confronted Maddy about his stinking attitude (especially in the scene at the hotel), something that’s all to often simply accepted and forgiven in similar films; stalking is often taken too lightly, and I was very happy to see that it wasn’t just excused as a romantic display of infatuation… I found the wedding scene believable too, really liked how Saif dealt with it. However, the ending really really irked me. Bleh.

PITHAMAGAN (2003)
Director: Bala. Cast: Vikram, Surya, Laila, Simran.
smile whatever
Thin story, not very interesting. I liked a couple of the songs and their picturizations. And Surya was cute & funny as always :) I haven’t watched much of Vikram’s work yet; this film made me want to see more of him.

AARYA 2 (2009)
Director. Sukumar. Cast: Allu Arjun, Navdeep, Kajal Agarwal.
grin silly love yum
A Telugu film. Very entertaining, funny and more than a little bit mad, hee hee :) When the end credits started rolling, I wasn’t quite sure of what I’d just been watching. I’m still not sure what to think/feel/write, in a confusingly good way actually. Watching Allu Arjun dance is such a wonderful delight!

STRIKER (2010)
Director: Chandan Arora. Cast: Siddharth, Ankur Vikal, Anup Soni, Vidya Malvade.

Well made, has a real feel to it. Good music, superb locations and overall an interesting film. Siddu didn’t impress me in this one though, his friend made a more lasting impression.

Avdelare

OY! (2009)
Director: Anand Ranga. Cast: Siddharth, Shamili.
smile innocent
A Telugu film. It’s colourful and has a sense of immaturity to it. Siddharth does his thing as usual; it’s always fun to watch him dance. There’s a few weird sequences that didn’t really feel part of the film, such as the stoned granny on the train… Beautiful camerawork, I especially loved the shots in Bodh Gaya.

Sensual, intense, intimate, interesting and engaging. Very sexy music too; I absolutely adooore Ab Mujhe Koi! I liked the relationships between the characters the most, and how they carried the story forward. Loved it!

ATITHI KAB TUM JAOGE? (2010)
Director: Ashwani Dheer. Cast: Konkona Sen Sharma, Ajay Devgn, Satish Kaushik.
grin silly smile
I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised by this film. I liked the choice of music and the unusual song picturizations. Beedi Jalaile is an absolute favourite of mine; Jyoti Jalaile was a fun idea that worked out really well. Koko is brilliant as usual!

love bittersweet yum music smile
This one is well, well worth a watch! Wonderful energy, excellent cinematography, lovely story, fun music, intriguing characters and great chemistry between them. I really like its dreamlike feel, and I love that it’s completely believable too. The locations have to be mentioned as well, they are stunning! And Abhay, he’s such a brilliant actor and I believe this is one of his best performances.

SHOOTOUT AT LOKHANDWALA (2007)

horrified worried
Violence, violence… yuck. It upsets me and I actually find it very disturbing. Had to use the ffw-button a lot, so I’m not going to comment on the film as a whole. Loved Vivek’s performance though, as always. And I liked the energy between Diya and Sunil. The songs got me into a bellydance kind of mood..! :)

So much fun to watch a classic like this! I really enjoyed the different feel it has compared to most films nowadays. Amazing energy and awesome style :) Loved the costumes, the make-up and the look of Bombay! So strange to see Big B and Rishi Kapoor so young…

LAMHE (1991)
Director: Yash Chopra. Cast: Anil Kapoor, Sridevi, Anupam Kher.
smile smile love
I enjoyed this film a lot. First film with Sridevi for me, I totally see why she’s so loved. She felt like a genuine part of the film, loved her energy. The scene at the waterfall when they are almost knocked over by the water… and then is… soo sweet!! I’m happy it kept it like that. Plenty of filmi references that I didn’t get, since I haven’t yet watched much films from or before this era. Anupam was forced as usual, too much…

Avdelare

RAINCOAT (2004)
Director: Rituparno Ghosh. Cast: Aishwarya Rai, Ajay Devgan.

Aish’s film, absolutely! Wonderful performance. I liked the look and feel a lot, but most of all I enjoyed the characters and their relationship to each other and themselves… A good story beautifully told, felt both honest and very believable.

Avdelare

PYAAR IMPOSSIBLE (2009)
Director: Jugal Hansraj. Cast: Uday Chopra, Priyanka Chopra, Anupam Kher.
love innocent
It’s simple and predictable, and Priyanka does a fantastic job! Uday is a good actor and seems to be a very interesting person in real life. I can’t help wondering why he chooses to make such a relatively shallow film when he has such a wonderful depth to himself as a person… not that the story is bad or anything, it’s just that I believe Uday could have taken it to a completely different level without losing any of the target group of this film. I didn’t like the music much, but ’10 on 10′ has a tendency to stick… I’m sad to say that I can totally relate to his character here, having spent many years as a nerdy computer programmer… but I’m still hoping for my happy ending ;)

Avdelare

MY NAME IS KHAN (2010)
Director: Karan Johar. Cast: Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol.
smile love music crying
SRK and Kajol is such a fantastic jodi! The best thing about this film is SRK’s performance, which is absolutely brilliant and totally believable. The music is wonderful too. Some parts were over the top (Mama Jenny and the flood…), while others underplayed (the torture sequence and it’s consequences) which gave a sense of imbalance. All in all it felt as if they tried to fit too many short stories in. I watched this one at the INOX in Chennai :)

I was enjoying myself up until intermission, but I would rather forget what happened after that….What irritated me most was the blatant commersials and the US president gag. Vivek does sexy very very well… Too bad Sunil Shetty had such a small part. Abhishek as an item number was unexpected, but I liked it. As for the girls… WTF?!

A bit funny, not a bad film but it didn’t draw me in. Shahid dancing is – as usual – absolutely wonderful to watch, while Vivek adds a lot just being his sexy, funny and sweet self. They are both fantastic actors, but they aren’t really given space enough here to impress anyone. Some of the action scenes were cool, looked great.

KANDEN KADHALAI
(2009)
Director: R Kannan. Cast: Bharath, Tamanna Bhatia.
grin love smile
A Tamil remake of Imtiaz Ali’s Hindi film Jab We Met (which happens to be my favourite movie all categories). It’s quite similar to the original, but not the songs. Some costumes looked exactly like the Hindi versions, also the choice of colours etc. I watched this at Sathyam in Chennai, and was blown away by the audience’s reactions… They absolutely loooved the comedy track (I hated it), and there was a constant frenzy of wild cheers, enthusiastic whistles and enthusiastic applause every time he entered the screen. Biggest laughs from the crowd were when the taxiwallah starts doing the puja (when they are trying to catch up with the train) and when Bharath’s character is being fed to no end by Tamanna’s characters’ family… and some references to other films that I didn’t recognize. Tamanna was very good as Anjali (Geet), but nowhere near Kareena’s performance. Bharat was somewhere between mediocre and lame, which further highlights Shahid’s mindblowing performance in JWM. I personally loved doing plenty of half sari spotting :)

A Tamil film, but I happened to watch the Telugu version. It’s fun and interesting, very well made. The story is tight and the choreography both cool and entertaining. I was amazed by how much content there was, how fascinating the characters were and by all the small details like fantastic looking shots (the lighter in the tank, for example), inventive and imaginative sequences in the action scenes. Interesting locations, fun to see and recognize Chennai. I really enjoyed the music too. Thank you Surya for taking your shirt off ;) Great camera work too. The dubbing could have been much better, it really creates friction since the rest of the film held such a high quality. Unsynchronized and very lame sounds/voices. This is the film that first made me fall in love with Surya <3

Akshay! I like him more and more :) And he makes an absolutely wonderful jodi with Katrina – amazing chemistry. Can’t believe they put Akki in the closet, though… that really killed the film for me. Great songs. Way too many characters, and the story I didn’t really care for either. Watched this at Sterling in Bombay.

kiss worried crying music
It got my adrenaline pumping and tears rolling, for sure… Love love love the music! Vivek is superb, so expressive… outshining Saif even, which says a lot. I would have loved to see some more interaction between the two of them. The energy between Vivek and Diya was stunning and felt very real… Brilliant performances all over, but Kareena really stands out in a good way. However, I noticed that the length of Kareena’s nails kept changing from scene to scene, which made me realize that although I was enjoying the film I wasn’t really drawn in by it… something that would be fair to expect from a film like this. I watched Kurbaan at the Metro in Bombay, and I found it most interesting to observe how the audience reacted to the kissing and sex scenes. I have never experienced such an palpable and intense silence in India, neither before or after – I think even the aircon stopped for a moment ;) I believe those scenes were written a bit too explicitly, which from my perspective took away the sensual energy. I didn’t feel the chemistry between Saif & Kareena, which surprised me. I think that if Saif’s character would have been written and portrayed a bit differently, it would have improved the whole film. Also, I had the most delicious cup of cardamom chai at the Metro! And I loved that the whole auditorium smelled of jasmin, thanks to one (!) lady wearing a jasmine mala in her hair.

Aish is amazingly beautiful, and watching her dance is just wonderful. However, there are some strange dances in this film… And Anil as DJ/conductor? Sexy yoga :) It’s a very uneven film, I didn’t enjoy the second half at all. Anil’s character is the most irritating one I’ve seen in a very very long time… and I strongly disliked the orchestra music.

worried yum grin love
Aamir is absolutely f.a.n.t.a.s.t.i.c!! I can’t believe they dubbed Rani’s voice?! Great storyline, believable villain. I really like the songs too, especially Jaadu Hai Tera Hi Jaadu, and Aati Kya Khandala always makes me smile :) This is totally Aamir’s film, but a few strong side characters caught my attention too – the brother, the lawyer woman and the little mute kid. Rani’s character had potential, I wish they had given her some more space. I liked how the flashback scenes were done and the fight choreography was quite good too (aside from the very repetitive sound effects…) And there were no irritating comic relief characters, much appreciated! My favourite moment would probably be when Aamir gives Rani a lift home, and then circles around her with his motorbike :) I’m not a fan of boxing, but the match is undeniably memorable; it tells so much about Aamir’s character.

nervous blank glare
I’m not big on horror flicks, but I knew I had to watch this since both Saif and Vivek are in it. Saif’s part is quite amusing, and it reminded me a bit of his character in Being Cyrus. Boman was there with him as well, which was nice. Vivek didn’t disappoint either, sharing some good moments with Nana. I think I enjoyed Shilpa’s part the most, actually. A house-wife haunted by red apples, irresistable na? She looked absolutely gorgeous too.

HAMESHAA (1997)
Director: Sanjay Gupta. Cast: Saif Ali Khan, Kajol, Aditya Pancholi.
smile yum bittersweet love
Lovely, lovely! I really enjoyed it, and surprisingly enough I actually found it to be leaning more towards ‘truly good’ than ‘so bad it’s good’. But to be honest, it’s an interesting blend of both. Hameshaa is wonderfully bittersweet and has everything you’d expect from a melodramatic, romantic reincarnation story. It also has got plenty of big big hair, “interesting” fashion, less than brilliant acting performances and did I mention the mullet? Saif looks fantastic, despite the mullet (or is it just me, having watched a lot of his old films recently??), and he moves really well too. Now and then I got a sense of some twisted form of déjà vu, catching what seems to me like glimpses of the future actor/person Saif now has fully grown into many years later. I’m a total sucker for small, repeated details like their special “hand touching/releasing” moments; like the one time where he gets all emotional without fully realising why… awww that’s pure gold! There’s something about Hameshaa that really moved me, and I’m saying this without irony – in case you’re still wondering. I actually care about the two of them. Love, lovers and mullets do get reincarnated – what’s not to adore?

Aamir is absolutely wonderful, super cute and such a joy to watch! I’m still a bit puzzled about why I don’t feel Madhuri, I wish I’d like her more as an actress. Anupam must have done something very right, because I really hated his character…

KYUN! HO GAYA NA? (2004)
Director: Samir Karnik. Cast: Vivek Oberoi, Aishwarya Rai, Amitabh Bachchan, Om Puri.

smile smile love innocent
I smile now when I’m thinking back of this film :) There’s a wonderfully sweet and adorable chemistry between Vivek and Ash’s characters and I loved the overall feeling of this film. The bit about “operation uncle” and the orphans was really, really boring – they could have made it to a meaningful part of the film, but it felt dragged out and ill-fitting, like it was there just to give Amit-ji more screen time. The graphics in the beginning (the car racing) was awful, and the angrez music did nothing good either. The twist at the end felt forced and too obvious, not to mention predictable, which together with the other weak points gave the film a sense of disjointedness. However, I absolutely loved Vivek in this film! His innocent, honest, vulnerable and slightly naive expressions and energies are fantastic, they are bringing soo much to the depth and whole of the story. Take the scene outside the house after Vinay’s party for example… totally wonderful!
I haven’t consciously been seeking out films with Vivek, but somehow I’ve ended up rewatching several of them lately. There’s something about him that really moves me to the core, intrigues me… is it his passion, openness or what comes across as fearless honesty? I really don’t know…

Waaay too much sugar-coating…. Saif looks great and there’s plenty of wonderful wonderful outfits. To me, this film feels very very glossy and very very fake. The fake smiles and laughs, the fake loving glances etc creep me out. It’s pretty to look at, but I need more from a film. I didn’t like it at all.

YEH DILLAGI (1994)
Director: Naresh Malhotra. Cast: Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan, Kajol.
smile smile love
I think it’s sort of cute, cheesy and fun – I enjoyed it. Kajol looks stunning and does some mad dancing, much of this film is all hers. Saif looks cute but is very snobbish and a really shitty person most of the film (and I don’t mean that in a slightly-mean-and-hot kind of way; trying to drug a woman to make her loosen up is never okay!) There’s plenty of terrible fashion, but the storyline is quite good and there’s not much poor comedy or mindless violence. The songs aren’t too bad either, Ole Ole Ole is probably the most memorable one. The choreography of that rain song with Akshay & Kajol was quite… interesting. And I believe Kajol’s blue sparkly dress dance has to be mentioned as well! I was very amused by the fact that Sapna (Kajol), a top model, obviously was an incredibly strong woman as well. I mean, she singlehandedly pushes a car quite a distance, she carries Saif up flights of stairs etc. And she likes ice-cream, can eat 7 of them at the same time :)
Watching this film straight after Keemat and MKTA might not have been the best idea – I was totally missing the crazy Sakshay energy…

There’s so much to love about this film, I don’t even know where to begin. To me, it has everything. It’s sweet, soulful, captivating and emotional, well-paced, has an interesting and relevant story, a fantastic and beautifully written script with witty and believable dialogues, brilliant performances, great locations, excellent music and a wonderful overall feel. It’s beautifully shot with great sound and excellent editing, but what’s even more important is that it has has plenty of that special magic that only Imtiaz Ali can sprinkle a film with. There’s lots of very funny moments too, much thanks to the intelligent and engaging dialogues and Saif’s irresistable expressions. What really stands out is its genuine, believable feel and how relatable it is, the coherent and creative narration, and of course Saif’s wonderfully flawed character Jai. Don’t miss the DVD with all the amazing extras!

This is one of those films where no matter how much effort the cast put into it, it just isn’t going to be good. Shahid and Kareena’s performances are both fine, but can’t compensate for the really weak script. Neha somehow stood out in a good way.

Loved it! It’s very fun and colourful, has plenty of great dancing and best of all – it has Rani & Shahid. Both of them are absolutely brilliant in this film (too!), and I love how sparks-flying-awesome they are together. Their outstanding performances is what makes this film, no doubt about it. I always knew Shahid was really good, but I have to admit that he has surprised me hugely, first in Kaminey and now this – and I mean that in the best possible way. His intensity and versatility is stunning, I’m loving the actor he has grown into. And I couldn’t help noticing that his smile has (nearly) the same high wattage as Simon Baker’s :) Highly infectious! As for Rani, she is super fantastic as usual! She has great timing and really pushes the limits bordering on madness here, in a good way of course, with all her unbridled body language, funny faces and fearless dedication. She amazes me, truly inspires me on so many levels. What breaks my heart right now is that she seems to be getting more attention for her weight-loss than for her excellent acting and obvious talent… it’s neither cool nor fair, guys – wake up!

Good timepass, actually. Surprisingly. Imran is fantastic! It didn’t distract me too much during the film itself, but now afterwards I can’t help thinking how much more interesting the film could have been if they had focused more on the human side of the story, as in human behaviour and emotions, the mental aspect of being under this kind of stress etc. But it’s not that kind of film, I know… I’m looking forward to seeing Chitrashi Rawat in more films in the future. She’s a breath of fresh air, interesting and unique, and she is doing her thing really well.

Page 3 is serious and interesting, nicely centered around a relevant story. Bhandarkar & Konkona both did great – again. It has a very real and slightly unusual feel to it, and I was moved by how well they have managed to portray some of life’s harsh reality through its gutting contrasts and twisted values. Some parts of it felt forced though, which reminded me of how newspaper headlines work… the more chocking, the more you sell. However, instead of being drawn in, I sensed it lost some of its grip. Trying too hard never wins. It ended up leaving me with the song ‘filmi… very filmi… filmi… very filmi ‘ stuck on my mind, and a heavy feeling in my chest.

Shahid and Priyanka both totally amazed me with their stunning performances – far beyond anything any of them has done before. What a wonderful, wonderful surprise! Shahid is simply breathtaking… The cinematography is fantastic, and I’m loving how well crafted and portrayed all three characters are, and how easily each of them reached through to me. That kiss has to be mentioned as well. It could possibly be what looks like the most genuine and honest kiss I’ve seen so far in Hindi cinema, so beautiful and memorable in its simplicity. As for the soundtrack, I wasn’t too impressed on the first listen, but watching the film now it feels like a perfect fit all the way. It would have been a fiver for me, if it weren’t so terribly violent.

I loved this film very much and I’m very happy I had the opportunity to watch it on a big screen (in Southall, London). Captivating story, fantastic direction, great camera-work and awesome performances, especially from John and Irrfan. New York is rich in feeling, inner strength and complicated relationships, and I love how its point of gravity lies deeply in the beauty and intricacies of being human. This film touches, in a very sensitive and intimate manner, upon several relevant and ever-engaging subjects, such as compassion, unconditional love, human rights and needs. I found some scenes a bit difficult to watch, as the screen was swimming through my tears for a good part of the movie. What moved me the most was, not surprisingly,
Spoiler warning, select to show > the scene where John’s character Sam – utterly vulnerable, completely broken and trapped in a tight box after having been viciously tortured over a long time – lets go of his last sliver of hope and allows himself to be completely submerged in total despair.

It’s moving and interesting, but most of all it’s very sweet and refreshing. Absolutely loved it :) This is the film that made me realize that there’s something very special about Imtiaz’s films. It definitely has tons of that special magic of his, which is cleverly enhanced by Abhay’s and Ayesha’s totally believable performances and great chemistry.

HEAVEN ON EARTH/VIDESH (2008)

I love, love, love everything about it! Farhan & Konkona – my long-time favourites – are absolutely fantastic, and together they are totally sparkling. There’s a perfect balance between realism and colourfulness, and the story itself is really strong. Awesome, addictive music… wonderful. The Making Of on the extras DVD is great as well, very interesting and revealing.

GHAJINI (2008)
Director: AR Murugadoss. Cast: Aamir Khan, Asin, Jiah Khan.

Absolutely brillant! I loved everything about it, except for the excessive violence.

It totally drew me in, came across as very real and unusually compelling.

KARAM (2005)

I really like it – strong story, interesting script and believable dynamics. Quite a lot of violence, but somehow it doesn’t feel excessive. John is deliciously expressive and performs wonderfully, infusing all the different aspects of his character with vibrancy and depth. Priyanka is absolutely brilliant, I’d say this is one of her best performances. And there’s stunning chemistry between them…

MADHOSHI (2004)

One of them nice surprises, where you get so much more than you expected. It’s interesting, sexy, unpredictable and well performed.

They both really know how to project themselves, conjure up intense chemistry and connect with the camera.

THE LAST LEAR (2007)
Director: Rituparnu Ghosh. Cast: Amitabh Bachchan, Preity Zinta, Arjun Rampal.

I would have loved to say that I was taken by this film, but that wouldn’t be true. Three fabulous actors, flawless performances and some great scenes but as a whole this film just didn’t succeed in bringing out its soul for me to connect with. I’m still not sure what was missing…

SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE (2008)
Director: Danny Boyle. Cast: Dev Patel, Anil Kapoor, Irrfan Khan, Frieda Pinto.

Reading the book, Q & A by Vikas Swarup, just before watching the film was clearly a mistake. The book is absolutely fantastic, and I highly recommend it! However, I let my expectations get the best of me, and was disappointed to discover that the film was more inspired by than based on the book… Apart from that, I really enjoyed the film. A R Rahman’s music is wonderful, as always. Irrfan does his thing excellently, as does Anil. Funny thing is, although the film is great, I can’t think of any specific things that stood out.

(Not that I’m complaining!)

One of my very favourite films, ever! I absolutely love it, it’s bittersweetness and gorgeous colours… Watched it too many times to count. Oh, and Dheere Jalna the song is fantastic! This is a super romantic and beautiful film you mustn’t miss.

KABHI ALVIDA NAA KEHNA (2006)

DON: THE CHASE BEGINS AGAIN (2006)

Very, very entertaining film! Great music and Shah Rukh as Don is totally unforgettable… (Fun fact: This films is the main reason for my first visit to Malaysia. I even went to a couple of the filming locations: The Petronas Twin Towers, one of the hotels the stars and crew stayed at during filming, and also my favourite the suspension bridge on Langkawi.)

OM SHANTI OM (2007)
Director: Farah Khan. I rollerna: Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Shreyas Talpade, Arjun Rampal, Kirron Kher.

The second (first actually, see the comment on Morning Raga) hindi film I ever watched, and the one that really got me hooked. I was listening to the songs from this film during both my first trips to India (even long before watching it), and they are still among my absolute favourites.

MORNING RAGA (2004)
Director: Mahesh Dattani. Cast: Shabana Azmi, Prakash Rao, Lillete Dubey.

This was actually the very first Hindi film I ever watched. It was so bad I just had to watch more..! ;)
Watching it again some 200 Bollywood films later, I realise that it actually isn’t that bad and that technically it’s not even a Hindi film! I’m loving Shabana Azmi …and Annapoorna :) The Maha Ganapathi song is wonderful.

JODHAA AKBAR (2008)
Director: Ashutosh Gowariker. Cast: Hrithik Roshan, Aishwarya Rai.

Absolutely fantastic! Insanely beautiful, and the music is probably the best hindi soundtrack ever made. Sufi music rocks! I love watching Hrithik and Ash together on screen, it’s as if they’re make of exactly the same acting stuff. And let me tell you, Hrithik’s shirtless sword fighting scene is… ahem… *swoons*
This was the first film I ever watched at the cinema in India (Chennai).

JAANE TU YA JAANE NA (2008)
Director: Abbas Tyrewala. Cast: Imran Khan, Genelia D’Souza, Pratiek Babbar, Manjari, Ayaz Khan, Arbaaz Khan, Sohail Khan.

Nice and funny, but I found the acting quite weak in many parts. I really liked Babbar’s character Amit, as well as the jodi Bhalu & Bagheere (Arbaaz & Sohail Khan). Spoiler warning, select to show > I absolutely loved the ‘terrorist has been apprehended’ scene at the end, and the dialogue was priceless! ‘…and he’s meowing.’

love kiss yum music
Quite dark, but I absolutely adore it! Brilliant script and performances, fantastic camerawork and everything else you could possibly wish for. Bipashas beedi item number is fantastic, I love that song! Very interesting to see Saif in a role like this, also – doing an excellent job. I love seeing Saif and VO together as well, hope to see lots more of them! And Konkona, brilliant as usual. Wonderful.

KISNA: THE WARRIOR POET (2005)
Director: Subhash Ghai. Cast: Vivek Oberoi, Antonia Bernath, Isha Sharvani.
love crying bittersweet
A wonderful but very sad love-story, set against a tumultous background of conflict, violence and hatred. Vivek is fantastic, I really really enjoy him as Kisna… truly feel for him. Isha as Lakshmi is great too – I love her flawed character, her childish jealousy, and the sequences where she’s dancing are absolutely beautifully shot. Intellectually I can relate to the karma-dharma situation, but my heart is shattered. What I don’t like is the English songs… the bit where Catherine is floating around mid-air angel style is the worst part.

KRRISH (2006)
Director: Rakesh Roshan. Cast: Hrithik Roshan, Rekha, Priyanka Chopra, Naseeruddin Shah.

A bit of romance, a bit of action – fun, sweet and entertaining. I love Hrithik’s obvious body awareness (I’m talking about how he moves, not his biceps…) and his long hair, but I’m a little disappointed that we didn’t get to see more of his awesome dancing in this film.

CHEENI KUM (2007)
Director: R Balki. Cast: Amitabh Bachchan, Tabu, Swini Khera.

I really like Amit-ji in this wonderfully grumpy role. It’s a sweet and slightly quirky romance, and the story has an original feel to it. I believe Tabu brings out the very best in her character, and the chemistry they share is both lovely and believable. However, I really don’t like the sexy, sexy stuff – she’s just a little girl, it irks me.

RANG DE BASANTI (2006)
Director: Rakesh Omprakash Mehra. Cast: Aamir Khan, Kunal Kapoor, Soha Ali Khan, Siddharth, Sharman Joshi, Alice Patten, Madhavan, Atul Kulkarni, Kirron Kher.

It seems I’m crying my heart out yet a bit harder every time I watch it… leaves me shattered and exhausted. Very strong emotionally, story-wise, acting-wise and in all other ways that matter. Absolutely beautiful.
