Blue - Notepad

wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

The typically banal formula of action and skin packed in with some mind boggling underwater sequence. It will leave you with a bad after taste of what could’ve been a treat! After a while, you might feel you re watching National Geographic packaged the ‘bollywood ishtyle.’

This page has additional observations, other than the ones noted in the main review.

Warning: this section has some details that could distort your experience while watching the movie. I strongly recommend reading this only after you have seen the movie or if you have decided not to see it.

Plot Summary

Grossly unfit and rather weary looking Sagar (Sanjay Dutt) is revisited by the ghosts of his past when his estranged younger brother Sam (Zayed Khan) gets into a mess with the Mafia in Bangkok. Hot on his trail, Mafia boss Gulshan (Rahul Dev) too reaches Bahamas and kidnaps Mona. Sagar is forced to face the demons of his past and visit the ship wreck (Lady in blue) in a diving expedition to recover the treasure with Aaraav and Sam

What Worked

• The brilliant underwater photography and action sequences. • The sun soaked Bahamas. • The sun kissed Lara Dutta in her bikinis.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

• The pot bellied Sanjay Dutt as a sea diver. • The over hyped Kylie Minogue Number • Sanjay Dutt romancing half his age Lara Dutta • Zayed Khan’s non existent acting skills • The treasure pot was just so lack luster and too easily accessible. Wonder why no one else ever found it!!

Nitty-Gritty

This section lists things that I think are not important to the overall impact of the movie. In most cases, it could be explained away by something like, "we noticed the glitch after the scene was shot and there were schedule/budget issues and thus we could not re-shoot it". I like giving the makers the benefit of doubt, but I am amused nevertheless. Hopefully, they will tickle you too.

• Kudos to fashion stylists of the movie. • I find it rather strange that even after being submerged in the ocean for almost 60 years, the jewels were sparkling.
