MY BLOG HAS BEEN SHIFTED TO http://blog.umennet.com.


ghajiniGhajini, Aamir’s new release, was the most awaited movie of the year. All the hype created was like, it will be an out of the way movie like Lagaan or Taare Zameen Par, but its a regular commercial movie. With a simple story of love and revange. Nothing new in the story line. But the show stealer is performance, direction and not to forget the action.

Majorly inspired from by Christopher Nolan’s Memento, Plot revolves around Sanjay Singhania (Aamir Khan), a Big Shot industrialist, sufferring from short-term memory loss, Searching for a person who is responsible for death of his girlfreind, Kalpana(Asin). Due to his Memory loss, he cant remember anything beyond 15 mnts, to remember he tattoos the imp details on his body. Film is divided in beutiful romance and gruesome action. A remake of the Tamil blockbuster, Ghajini seems to be exaggerated in drama and action.

Aamir is once again with his brilliant performance. Be it the rich man’s Business style, or the lovers charm, or the Action, or his growling like a tiger/Chasing dog in the action scenes or the mannerisms like using left hand, you cant take your eyes off him. And when the audience , even in a multiplex, claps and whistles, it shows what Aamir is all about.

asin-822385759_std1Asin is a fresh, charming leading lady for the film. She portrays a small time model, who is very helpful and is is the love interest of Aamir Khan. She seems to be here to fill the void of Sridevi. She has the innocent smile, and the active sweet talking mannerisms of Sridevi. Other Actors, pradeep Rawat, Tinu Ananad, etc are also good. Jiah Khan is Ok.

Music of the film is not superhit, but is being liked by some. 3 Songs make the impact, Guzarish, Kaise mujhe tum mil gaye & Behka Behka. Picturisation is great!!!

Now comes the action Part. Hindi audience will see the south style action, but interestingly, Aamir makes the impact in the action. and actions scenes not look artificial as in the Rajnikanth or Cheeranjivi’s flicks. Some scenes like hitting with an iron rod seems gruesome and would not be liked by female audiences to an extent.

Overall Ghajini is an ordinary movie with extraordinary performances and Direction. Its like the old ’80’s films with all the masala, and tadka of Aamir. And believe me you wont forget the taste for long.

I Would Rate it 3  out of  5

My Suggession? Go for IT!!!

Some specials:

1.  Asin tells everyone that Sanjay Singhania is in love with her. Even an article is published. Doesnt the article publish the pic of a business tycoon? And cant Asin google the name Sanjay Singhania, just to know how he looks like??  Logic ends here and Magic begins…. HINDI MOVIE MAGIC!!!!!

2.  Ghajini is the name of the Villain!! I suppose this is for the first time a Hindi film is named after a villain!!

3.  It seems the Khans are taking the Khan war a bit too seriously. In a scene Sunil Grover has been roped in, pretending to be Sanjay Singhania & Aamir laughs loudly at him. And a remark says: “Ja tu ads kar. Acting tujhse nahi hogi!!!”

4.  Aamir’s Statue with his tatoos is placed in the cinema Halls, and people are flocking to get picturised!!

5.  Fame cinemas, Mumbai is offerring a free Ghajini Haircut with every 2 or more tickets purchase!!

6.  Dont throw away your Ghajini Tickets. Yes, you can redeem the whole amount spent while shopping Van Heusan!!!

7. And hold your breath!! A Ghajini 3D Game is also to be released!!!

7. And last but not least, do visit Ghajini Official Website.  And interesting website, using the videos of the film, and yet keeping it fast. Loads of downloads. And a surprise element: If you dont do anything for 15 Minutes. the screen goes white!!! You need to start all over again. SMART!!!

Have you seen the movie?? Have some more comments to add??? Would love to read it.

Kidnap Review

Got a free pass for the special screening of Kidnap. The film seems to be promising. And a excitement of seeing Iraan Khan opposite Sanjay Dutt was enough for me to grab the opportunity.

The movie is about a Millionaire Vikrant Raina (who has not met his daughter since 8 years) whose daughter is kidnapped by Kabir. The kidnap is not for any ransom. That makes it interesting. Kabir gives Vikrant Raina clues to find his daughter and Vikrant Raina has no chance but to obey him. Hence the line, He will set the rules, You have to obey them. The Film’s plot resembles Zinda (incidentally again Sanjay Dutt & John Abraham).
















The Film’s main attraction is Imran Khan. He is the chip of the old block (Aamir Khan). He carries the rude, angry, stern look effortlessly. His confidence is seen in his scenes with Sanjay Dutt. Dilaogue delivery, and action scenes comes to him naturaly. He has got a certain style quotiant which keep you glued to screen. His chase sequence is a must watch.

Sanjay Dutt looks tired. Seems as if he was not willing to work. Suprisingly in some action scenes his duplicate doesnt match him and people start saying ki “arre yaar duplicate hai“.

Minishha Lamba looks good. But her costumes, not at all suits her while she is kidnapped. Come on, You cant be wearing different skin revealing clothes and bath in sea and river, when you are kidnapped!!

Vidya Malwade doesnt look either a wife nor a mom. Absolute expressionless. And bad bad costume work for her. Reema Lagoo and Rahul Dev seems to be added to increase characters.

When you have success like Dhoom & Dhoom 2, expectations are quite high. Sanjay Gadhvi is not up to the mark this time. some chase sequences seem to to be lifted staright from James Bond flick, Casino Royale. The script is very loosly bound and fail to capture after interval. Seems as if director was confused how to end the movie. Dialogues are good. Thankfully film has just 4 songs and all of them are average except the theme song: lut jaaye ye jahan. .

I loved its first half. It has pace and keeps u glued. but second half makes you wondr whats going on??  On the whole Kidnap is a ok ok movie. and would get audiance just because of teen sensation Imraan Khan.

My over all rating is 3 out of 5.
