Movie Talk:Guzaarish

Posted in Experience by justaroundme on November 27, 2010

I watched Guzaarish.I read online that the movie is not doing good at the box-office.It is expected,I think.This movie is for selected audience, who have a thirst for an entertaining movie with decent story, good acting, soothing music but no item- numbers, unrealistic stunts or any cheesy jokes.

I thought Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai pair had a good chemistry in the movie Jodha Akbar and in Guzaarish too they make a good on-screen pair but Hrithik simply dominates.He dances with a feminine grace and that is beautiful to watch.Aishwarya Rai’s acting is good because it is subtle.Personally, I can take her overdone makeup but not her exaggerated acting.

I don’t want to reveal or write a review about the movie but to be precise it is clean, heart-warming, funny and touching.The screenplay and the dialogues does not overwhelm the viewer with tight over-sentimental or over-dramatic scenes in spite of the very sensitive storyline.Instead it is more about the endurance, positive energy and lighter side of the character played by Hrithik.

Is the movie running in your nearby theaters ?.Don’t have any second thoughts, go watch and just allow Ethan Mascarenhas to show his magic and mesmerize you.

Movie Talk…

Posted in Experience by justaroundme on August 20, 2010

I have long-forgotten to see (Indian) movies also as an ART form.In recent years, movies targeting “the youth” have become stale,redundant and noisy.In the end, I would definitely have to swallow a headache pill.As I no more fall under the “youth” bracket,I have to do an extended search in different languages beyond my comfortable boundary to quench my thirst for a “GOOD” movie.

I like movies centered around the woman character and I like stories that projects the power and inner beauty of women in a subtle manner.I like movies with deep intense characters…

The particular Bengali movie that I watched called – “Shob Charitro Kalponik”, was a very refreshing treat.I simply chose to watch this without any expectations (that works great sometimes).And of course the poster of the movie showing the beautiful Bipasha Basu with a big bindi and an artistic motif on her eyebrows did lure me.

I have read and heard stories that explains the distance between a poet’s imaginary plane and the practical world.The director(Rituparno Gosh) has well pictured the (modern) life of a whimsical poet:his joy,his pride,his ecstasy,his success and his defeat.

Bipasa as Radhika, a contemporary wife of a poet : her insecurities,her love,her hate all perfectly penned and crafted.When she discovers about her husband’s contradicting other side,his love for her and his sensitivity through his poems, is a riveting and surreal journey to herself and to the viewers as well.
The best part of the story is that-it shows death as a beginning!.The cinematographer has done a great job by keeping every single frame in the movie very simple,sharp and clear.

The overall experience I had after watching this movie is ineffable.The soft,yet complex melancholic tune of the movie still lingers in my heart and would never want it to fade away.

I would simply put it straight – craving for a good Indian movie ?.Watch Shob Charitro Palkonik as (my) words would not do justice to this beautiful piece of ART.
