@aniket Thank you so much Aniket, you're very kind. Taste in movies comes with time, I'm still a beginner really. :)
@alok You know the most amazing part of that song? It feels as if I've heard if before. :)
Raman, you can buy/rent the DVD. This link should help. http://www.enlighten.co.in/?main=enlighten_dvd
While I appreciate Gowariker's honesty towards the subject - he, Rajkumar Santoshi, Shyam Benegal are the select few who do justice to periodicals - KHJJS is his most thanda film, so far. The promos don't look interesting, they're devoid of great lines, and full of shouts of Vande Mataram, the cliche of every periodical made in India. But can't help, since he's being honest with history. Had this film been made in 1960, it would have been a blockbuster, but doubt if it works today. We need a revolutionary way of storytelling, something which Rakesh Mehra did in Rang De Basanti.
I've been following Varma's films closely since quite a while. Although I'm no more a fan, I'm always curious to know how his film's shaped up. Was really surprised when UTV decided to produce this film - they had some great films last year - Oye Lucky Lucky Oye, Aamir, DevD, Welcome to Sajjanpur, Jodha Akbar - I'm guessing this film will disrupt that run of success.
But frankly, I'm kinda bored of the fish-eye lens camera angles that Agyaat's promos are full of. They seem to have become Bollywood's easiest way out to depict horror, thrill or suspense.
I wish the music of the film was promoted better. Considering its a musical, you need memorable tracks. Kudos to Jaideep Sahni once again. He knows the pulse of the audience so well by now, for mass market films.
