Agree with most of the review except the part where Shoojit's first movie is mentioned. It's not 'Vicky Donor', but 'Yahaan'.
While I agree mostly with your opinion about the music, the intensity and staying power of the movie. I'm a bit disappointed at the line you gave from the climax of the movie.
I watched the movie after reading the review, and at the climax, it slightly lessened the experience cause when she says the line - I thought, yeah, I read that in wogma.
This is the first Salman movie in long time that I watched in Theaters.
I enjoyed a few lines thoroughly, what was more interesting was there were no fat jokes this time.
@Fan and @Anuj: Just saying, I feel though passionate, sometimes your posts in bulk seem to hijack the discussion. I'd love to read what you have to say, but could you limit it to 2 comments at a time?
@TimELiebe: A Wogma Discussion Group? Not a bad idea. I'm in.
@Meetu: Hanuman was my favorite too. Perfect Role Model for children - Firstly because he had both the parents; was a Superhero AND Sidekick at the same time; Solved the dilemma of 'shorts over tights or under tights' by doing away with the tights altogether. But am not sure if he ever had conflicts I could identify with. (He being celibate alone dismisses half of them.)
@Meetu: Aww... Ok. Mythology discussion would be fun too. How would you like it to happen - wait for appropriate movie to release or maybe, you already have a movie in mind that would be fun to discuss?
@Meetu: Troll ko kya nahi react kiya hai, Wah! Keep it up with the cool head.
Also, are you up for a Superhero movies in India discussion? just asking.
The saddest part is Sonalee Kulkarni in some interview had said, Producers saw her in 'Natarang' and chose her. She said that quite a few times.
I desperately hope that she has role substantial enough to justify placing Natrang beside Grand Masti.
One word of Caution to everybody, watch it only on Big Screen not the Biggest Screen - Imax (if available). I'm speaking from experience of Ironman 3 and Man of Steel... perhaps because both weren't shot with Imax cameras, both the movies appeared grainy on it. Normal Screens are both a better and cheaper view.
The Doctor is all bad, the child is all innocent. We all know who's going to win, the only question is by what margin? which, going by all the cliches will Narrow (that too gained at last minute). In spite of trailer, I hope there are some really good monologues.... otherwise, trailers have left nothing to imagination.
They gave away first act of the movie, the characters had to practically spell their traits out louds AND the cliche Crying in the Rain...
Even if I'm in a charitable mood and assume that they something new to say... I'm pretty sure its going to padded with lots and lots of same old shit(Hey, that makes a good acronym).
A seemingly run-of-the-mill sequel manages to impress you, I'm surprised... But even more surprised to realize that you were a teenager when I was 2 year old... You may not have given the movie away, but you certainly have given away your age :-p
Why is review of Jurassic Park being represented by Jurassic Park III's still?
@Meetu: The objectification of women in older chashme baddoor missed me... can you elaborate a bit on it (of course, without giving the movie away :D)
@Anand: If for nothing else, at least appreciate meetu for her tolerance.
I am going to watch the film, in spite of knowing what I am gonna get, just because the person who's gonna accompany me is real fun to watch movies with and is nostalgic about old Himmatwala.
Thanks for the warning though, Meetu.
Of all english movies out there, why in the 36 crore gods' name did you have to choose this movie?
Irrelevant Comment: The typo of Kamal Haasan in Quick Review reminds me of a Pan Masala.
