Whoa! How did I miss this. Lovely. WOGMA birthday celebrations seem to have been magnificent. Long live WOGMA!
@Joydeep I haven't watched 'Khatta Meetha', but I sure was relieved that movie made me laugh. Which is lot more than I could ever say about Golmaal 2.
@praneshachar: Thanks so much for your comments here. Yeah, I waited to watch the shooting scenes in end, some of them were hilarious.
@Wardhaman Thanks for the kind words. Yea, I thought it was a stand comedy show one that could easily be improvised each time without altering/impacting its non-existent plot. :) What did you mean when you said - 'Golmal 3 is a sure laughter medicine despite some scenes' What scenes you found objectionable/irritating?
@Mallika That's quite some enthusiasm, I am curious to know what you thought of the movie AFTER you watched it. ;)
@Yakub The stammering fit well in situational comedy and game of rejoinders, that I didn't much notice the irritation it may have caused to some. To each his/her own.
@Dr. Sachin: I do not remember a single instance where disability per se was being made fun of in a derogatory manner. No character was put down solely because it was mute or stammering, rather laughs happened due to situations/reactions that mute rejoinders/stammered replies created/evoked. Which is not so much different than laughing at gullibility of Vasooli or amnesiac portrayal of Johnny Lever. In truth, we try to make light of even could-have-been-dangerous moments. Don't we jest when even able-people trip or fall or makes similar mistakes. Or, would we prefer a sanctimonious mourning? Not only that, I loved the scene where Tusshar Kapoor's mute character goes to break the secret of their birth to everyone and for once they all (including the step-brothers) understand perfectly without a shred of doubt. What would you prefer - differently-abled lead characters that can laugh at themselves and give equally back or morose disabled characters (often part of sub-plots) that only evoke pity? Personally, I would judge a movie/book/comedy based on its intention - and in this case, I didn't think it was insensitive. It's good to laugh on idiosyncrasies that life offers.
Happy Birthday, to WOGMA, Birthday to you.Many more successive years to you.
No one knows better than (LAZY) me that how much hard work goes in to keep a blog running in a disciplined, consistent and selfless manner. *BOWS*
Kudos to you and Navin.
Changes seem exciting, and wah, you'll now collate user reviews and rating. Then WOGMA becomes a 'bigger' one-stop-for-all-reviews (because it is already one, I guide my colleagues to compare reviews here.).
May WOGMA soar more heights!
This calls for celebration! :)
Now I am forced to think twice about the movie, I was looking forward to it. :(
Meetu, I have just one word for your web site. Fantastic!
I just watched Johnny Gaddar and just searched it on web in a dazed state. I landed on your web site. Some of your observations I agree with and some I disagree with. But best part is the observations you make about camera angles and cinematography that I can never make when I watch a movie for the first time. I can analyse only in second viewing. But you could do it and put ir comprehensively on your blog deserves a BIG thumbs up!
Keep on writing, will be a regular now on. :)
