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. Continue reading Mangal Pandey

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. Continue reading Paheli

Finding Neverland

Yesterday, I watched a movie “Finding Neverland”. Johnny Depp stars as Sir James Barrie, creator of all time classic Peter Pan. A film is about what inspired James Barrie to write peter pan. It’s an amazing movie. Director has done a fabulous job. Mainly Mr Barrie’s character is great. He is a mature person but still there’s a kid inside him who always dreams of a place called Neverland. And then Barrie meets Sylvia Llewelyn Davies (Kate Winslet) and her family and he writes the play Peter Pan based on this relationship. Continue reading Finding Neverland
