A Wednesday

Amazing movie . Stunning , pacy thriller . Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher have done a superb job in portraying their respective characters and probably very few actors in the film industry would have done justice to the role. Its a movie about the aaj ka burning issue terrorism in the name of jihad and beautifully essays the frustration and tension among the common man in the city of Mumbai. Really nice watch…. Dont miss this one.

Jai Gurudev.

Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na

I watch hindi movies rarely (rarely means around 2 or 3 a year). So what propelled me to watch this movie??Well nothing really…. Sriram , Chaitu had decided to go for a movie and i just tagged along. Sriram , Chaitu and Nek had already been to Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic and had regretted their decision (I expected it ….. πŸ™‚ ).

The Movie:(Contains no spoilers … πŸ™‚ )

The movie is a story of love.Not a love story … since these two words bring a specific template in hindi movie viewers minds….. Its a story of love between a group of friends , focussing on the lives of two very close friends Jai Singh ‘Rats’ Rathore(Imran Khan) and Aditi ‘Meow'(Genelia D’Souza) (Both look very cute throughout the movie….. πŸ™‚ ).

Its a very refreshing movie that leaves one with a sense of lightening (couldnt think of anything else….meant to be something which lightens u up and kindof uplifts ur mood….. πŸ™‚ ). A.R.Rahman has done a superb job with the music.Really nice watch….

Congrats to Aamir ,Imran,Genelia,Karan,Nirav,Alishka,Sugandha,Renuka for a job veryΒ  well done….. nice work and do bring such refreshing films periodically ….. πŸ™‚
