12 Jun

Fun Movies

1. Angoor – Smart and the subtle. Crafted to perfection

2. Padosan – Innocence and jest for life of the characters makes the movie an unforgettable experience

3. Andaaz Apna Apna – India’s Dumb & Dumber. And this movie is the original.

4. Peecha Karo – Meaningless, pointless. Great joy ride.

Thinking Movies

1. Being Schmidt -To know why Jack Nickolson is an actor’s actor

2. 21 Grams – Art of direction

3. Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro – Dark. Humour that will depress because of its reality.


1. Usual suspects – I bet no one can guess the end. And while you are at it also watch Hindi adaptation “Chocolate” to see how a good movie can be slaughtered

2. Departed – Matter of fact action, no melodrama, edge of the seat thrills, spellbinding performances

3. 13 Tzemati – Disturbing. The movie makes you a character in the plot and the horror of it hits like a hammer when you least expect it.

Movies that do justice to the Book

1. Godfather – Details unnecessary

2. Black Friday – Actually better than the book

3. Sin City – It is a comic book that reads on its own. Amazingly true to the art form.

4. L.A. Confidential & Black Dahlia – Movies based on the books by the same author

5. 300 – Almost there. Mandatory to read the book before you watch the movie, its not history being shown but a book being filmed.
