Deewane Huwe Pagal:
First thing that comes to mind- There’s something about Mary. Tanya, in this case.
The basic plot or theme is copied, so is the music.
Border and Refugee doesn’t happen everyday. Therefore, Anu Malik has resorted to what he does best: copy.
Vivek Obey-Rai (courtesy manuscrypts) is the Sutradhar. He is definitely not getting enough movies. I won’t give him even a 502 Pattaka Biddi ad to do.
Kareena Kapoor’s 'son-looking' boyfriend, Shahid Kapoor is in the movie. I can’t stand her and I can’t stand him for no fault of his.
Too many characters careen in and out of each other's lives.
I would have preferred Sushmita Sen in the lead and not Rimi Sen. She can be the cynosure of the entire cast. Rimi sen wore long skirts. I wouldn’t mind short ones from her.
Most of them act as if they are physically challenged.
Fight scenes did not look like fight scenes but rather a bike show.
Akshay's name is rocky, Paresh Rawal's name is Tommy and the dog's name is Jayanty Lal. So funny, nooooo?
Watch this movie for Akshay Kumar alone. Rocky rocks. There is one more scene near the swimming pool from Paresh Rawal that was real good.
The dance sequences are good.
My favourite scene: Akshay knows that the girl would like her man to be an architect. So, the next day, he comes with a bag with ARCHITECT written big and bold. He makes her hold it as he bashes some hired goons. Later the girl asks him,”You are an architect?” He replies, ”How did you know?” The girl showed the bag and he comments, ”Sharp eyes!!”
One time watchable preferably at home. (Roomie slept in the theatre but she ate the pop-corns)
A good woman: A young couple's marriage is put in jeopardy by high-society gossip of an affair blossoming. The combo of Helen Hunt and Scarlett Johannson cannot fail us. Based on a play by Oscar Wilde, it is an amalgamation of comedy, witty dialogues, good script and acting. A must-watch.
Some lines: Every saint has a past. Every sinner has a future.
The best way to keep your word is by not giving it away (food for thought)
Sometimes marriage is a burden and it needs to share the load between three people.
Deleted yesterday's post. It was therapeutic but I didn't like it.
