  • Prem Ratan Dhan Payo:

    Of course the movies stupid, that's the reason it will do good business and people will come out smiling. The khans should not be critiqued for they pull crowds and in the end give you a smile on your face. Not every movie has to be serious. I saw Jurassic World too and yeah I'm sorry the dinasaurs last impressed me in 1995 only. Same goes for this movie. But it still works. At the end of Jurassic world I was entertained and my pop corn was finished. Same goes for this movie.

  • Interstellar:

    A brilliant review and a expected rating Pradeep, but I feel the movie is bordering too close to a Nolan fan only category. The reasons are below:

    Memento, Inception, two of Nolans products are master pieces in themselves despite the former not being that popular due to certain reasons. Both movies work on an idea that can be thought of by both average movie goer as well as the ones who demand movies take you in an educated philosophical dreamable ideas.
    The Batman Trilogy is at the end of day comic fantasy meets dark cinema rendering and its best avatar yet but once again, fine for the average move goer as well as the demanding one.

    However, interstellar is a bit too far in my opinion, the idea is intriguing and it does excite me but I know for sure that for the average movie goer this movie is too much information and a topic that, well we think about but don't really think beyond the obvious there's life beyond Earth or a sustainable planet etc.
    thing.

    I mean it does make you think but at the end of the day, how much, are there hidden meanings in the movie ? No, I for once didn't suffer from the low dialogue volume creative exiting thing which most people complain about because ala subtitles were there, but I certainly do not want to spend (bordering waste) another 3 hours to find what I already know about the movie.

    I mean as ridiculous as I will sound as explaining the movie to a person, is almost as ridiculous the movie gets at times, and I feel it's a little too much that's all.

    I could have just that the movies a little too much but I did it the Nolan way. Complicated it a lot to make my post interesting creative and also a waste of time.

    this movie is slightly away (read nerd over load) from what movies are supposed to be: a thought, an idea that's not too nerdy
    And definitely entertaining ...

  • Krrish 3:

    Gosh people really get touchy and start defending soft porn movies out here I see (grand masti). Well to each his own, some people call them masala movies some people call them a waste of precious life. Perhaps folks who support such masala movies don't have anything substantial in their life hence they get touchy.
    Anyhu ... meetu, your preview for the movie, "looking forward to this movie since you thought the VFX are done nicely" have made me compelled to tell you that:
    1) no the vfx are bullshit
    2) many people here will defend the movie, and also argue how they feel deeply that the movie "makkhi" had good vfx, those people, please ignore my comment because we live on two different wavelengths so no point
    3) any decent PS3 games has similar VFX
    4) most PS3 like VFX in the trailer are copied from various Hollywood movies
    5) Dhoom 3 VFX would be a delight it seems but m not too hopeful
    6) music sucks
    7) movie will be a super hit but I request you not to be hopeful and review in your usual style because I am getting older and I seriously don't want to waste my time trying to make sense of shitty masala cinema
    8) I respect all Bollywood and my comments are just my comments and if they bother you then please do not bother me cause like I said, there's no point !

  • Boss:

    The fact Meetu still has the courage to walk into such films with expectations is the fact she is an awesome critic.
    I don't even waste my time any more. Maybe because I'm getting old and my time is precious to me :D
    Gravity, Prisoners and Captain Philips -> now these are movies on my list as of now.
    Don't know which next Bollywood movie to look forward to with genuine expectations.

  • The Attacks of 26/11:

    RGV did Sarkar alright but he also made Aag. So I am going to be honest but switch channels if on TV would be a better rating for this movie. Yes you can't write off a director just because he gave a flop but honestly, the 7 minute prelude was enough that this would be more about showing what actually happened (the bollywood treatment), than showing how it affected our country, lives, economy, relationship with pakistan, etc. (the usual in depth hollywood treatment).
    I don't wanna see men with gun shooting innocent people, I would watch Terminator or Die Hard for that.
    A 26/11 movie should not be ACTION/ENTERTAINMENT genre.
    It should be a DRAMA/DOCUMENTARY.

  • Skyfall:

    Agree with your review completely. If I had to rate all three movies since the reboot or Daniel Craig, I'd rate this probably after Casino Royale and Quantam of Solace because they were two films in continuation so more like 1. But I certainly hope the next one takes us deeper. While Skyfall shows light on the emotional ends of its characters more than any other bond movie it certainly lacks a bit in the absolute in your face thrill factor which is some what of an expectation. Casino Royale nailed that bit just well.
