Starting from April end this year till recently, have watched just five movies in multiplexes – perhaps the lowest ration in years. Would blame on the quality movies and after-effects of recession on industry :-)!
Starting from Dum Maaro Dum at Big cinemas, Ansal Plaza with friends of past. Was good experience and movie was entertaining as well though with very weak storyline and wasted item song. It was only the places and the subject which actually kept everyone interested in watching the movie till end. Based on drugs and mafia in Goa, their spread to the youth and the effects, movie progresses with at least three storylines running in parallel – of Abhishek Bachchan, Prateik Babbar and Rana Daggubati while chasing the bad guy, Aditya Pancholi.
Fast Five was one with friends of future. It runs too fast to take your eyes off for a moment. The background music is wonderful. The action scenes combined with sound effects make you jump at times (at least we felt like that). All of us had watched the past 4 parts in this sequel and this one was no disappointment.
Chalo Dilli was the first with friend at DTC. Movie is about a Delhi shopkeeper who happens to go on an interesting road journey with a corporate honcho because of flight mess up. It is on the road where they like and hate each other. They fight and thank each other and enjoy the typical village life leaving them learning most important lesson about life – nothing in life should be taken very serious unless it is matter of life or death.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was one at Sahara. On similar storyline as its previous parts, in 3D, it becomes boring after the interval. By the end, you actually want it to finish so that you can see the suspense. Wasn’t at par as per repo of the sequel.
Kung Fu Panda 2 – my first movie in 3D with Sam as company after long gap. Was wonderful experience at Ambience. It was as good as its first part with full of laughter.
Ready – It was one movie which I didn’t want to go for but had to. Salman is trying to be next Sunny Deol but since he can’t do it in serious way, he choose comedy to make viewers perceive him as super action hero. Didn’t work well except the laughter here and there. The versatile star-cast makes this movie watchable.
