Enough of men wearing micro skirts. Lets talk about the suit and boot category. National Treasure is a fast paced movie that makes you sit up and watch. If you have liked the Da Vinci code, you would love this. Nicolas Cage (Benjamin Franklin Gates ) speeding against time and adversaries, solve clues and break codes to hunt the greatest treasure of all times thus unfolding many secrets, action and adventure.


Page 3: The ironies of life and the pragmatic compromise that one has to make with it!
Lovely review is given here so, I cannot add more. I belong to one of those people who atleast try to take the daily dose of the supplementary pages even when I just peep at the headlines. I liked the movie for the protagonist played by Konkana Sen. I would love to watch her Amu too but, I guess that has not been released in Bangalore.

Armed with her journalistic licence, searching for spice in the party crazy crowd, seeking people worthy of page 3, making and breaking identities, she meanders through the crowd and unearths the black and white side of Page 3. What she gains and what she loses in the bargain is what it is all about.

Somehow, there is a string that links you to her because of the dressing style or her girl-next-door look. Loved her chirpy air-hostess friend too. Some glam dolls like Tara Sharma just fade in comparison to her.

Madhur Bhandarkar has matured and stand tall this time as a film maker perhaps from the cumulative experience that has happened in his real life (Preeti Jain Case).
It’s really true, there is a thin line between art and life.

Planning to watch Black as you people recommend. I am off to get tissue papers. I know what’s coming. I hope I get the tickets else I’ll end up watching Vaada and bug with another review :-)

Another one who says Page 3 is worth watching. It didn't come here in cinemas, and the DVD is out already! So, I guess I'll go get that and see what the uproar is all about!
Good reviews btw, I couldn't get myself to write this much even for Black!! ;)

I saw National Treasure and well, what really really surprised me is that Nicholas Cage did not ONCE, yeah not even a teensy weensy split second, remove his shirt in this movie. SHOCKER!

Cant wait to see Da Vinci Code in the context of National Treasure (despite the bad choice of actor in DVC).

Mr. Maverick said...

despiteme - Bad choice of actor in DVC???????? Are you talking about Tom Hanks??? He is the BEST actor currently in Hollywood!

Hey Arunima, Have been dying to see a good movie, just cant get inspired to see any of the one's playing now. I guess I want to see black... let's see. I saw national treasure...mmmm Average. too predictable and pat . Guess I m rather a scrooge abt movies. wasting a good 3 hours of my life , not to mention the money. I'll wait for your opinion about black..:D

hey aru,
page 3 was simply wonderful. simple plot woven well with fabulous dialogues and 'the girl next door' indeed deserves an applaud.

guys, I didnot get the ticket for Black for the show I wanted. For the next show, didn't have company. :-(
I stay too close to some of the theatres that I never practice advance booking. boo hoo

Shweta, it would be my pleasure. I know, it is outdated but I still do write to some people one being to my cousin in the Army and to some people really close to me.

Thanks a lot for the compliment!
