The Man of Steel

Today, “Look up in the sky”. Man of Steel “Superman” and my favorite super hero returns to the silver screen. Brandon Routh plays the Superman, Kevin Spacey plays superman’s arch enemy Lex Luthor and beautiful Kate Bosworth plays Lois Lane, who is still in love with man of steel. Bryan “X-Men” Singer has helmed the responsibility of bringing back man of steel to the silver screen. Looking back at Bryan’s history – Usual Suspects, X-Men and X-Men 2, Superman Returns can be another feather in his cap.

“Superman Returns” is supposedly this summer’s most awaited flick and predictions are that it will re-write the box-office history. Check out the official site: http://supermanreturns.warnerbros.com/

IQBAL

When I came out of a theater watching IQBAL, immediately I wanted to congratulate IQBAL on getting selected in Indian cricket team. And there lies the success of the film. IQBAL is a story of an 18 year old boy from village who is deaf and dumb and how he achieves his dream of being a bowler in Indian team.

Mangal Pandey

Hey God, please forgive Ketan Mehta, Aamir Khan and Farokh Dhondy for making a disgusting movie called “Mangal Pandey – The Rising”. 7 years in making, 1000 prints worldwide and so called India’s answer to Academy Award Winner “Braveheart”. I don’t understand on what basis the makers have made such hype. Rising is a complete let down. Also I haven’t understood why all the critics are praising Rising and have given 4 start rating. I sincerely doubt about the home work done by Ketan Mehta and Farokh Dhondy.

Ab Tak 56


“When we have information, we kill criminals. When we don’t have information, we kill time. Don’t be restless. Be patient.”

This is the dialogue from the RGV production and Shimit Amin directed “Ab Tak 56”. This is the only movie which takes a realistic look at the life of an encounter cop.

Paheli

When I came out of theater after watching Paheli, just one thought came to
my mind that what I have jut experienced can not be ahindi film. Its just brilliant. It was like I have just seen a ‘A Wizard of Oz’ (One of my favourite fantasy films) in Hindi. Kudos to Amol Palekar. Amol Palekar has done a brilliant job. Paheli is a classic example of how a love story can be presented in a different style than those typical Chopra-Johar styles. Amol Palekar creates his own world and he has 100% succeeded in it.
