The Lunchbox -
Simply an Outstanding Classic
Once you start eating a delicious LunchBox, You would definitely not leave till it get finished.. So is the Movie 'The LunchBox' It makes you more curious to know what next.
I would Say probably its one of the finest movies made in Bollywood..
After watching this type of movie it is not difficult to write but i dont want to write much neither want to tell the story, like the Movie doesn't speak much ..Its just want to make you feel the scene, the expressions.. Every Scence of the movie conveys a lot of meaningful without putting it in as many words even without any background score.
Every Dialogue is very well written and broken down into pauses, thoughts and silences and each one liner says like a complete paragraph.
It's great to see good old letters being exchanged in an era of chat,email, Facebook, Twitter, mobile phones and Whatsapp. Somewhere it depicts the excitement of that golden old era in which we had been born but we haven't experienced as it all changed till we have grown up.
The performances are the backbone of this classic. Irfan Khan, Nimrat and Nawazuddin Sidiqui were so real and like the people around us. Nawazuddin's timing and way to deliver the dialogues is too good. Its an story on the one in a thousand mistake, on the same note Movie is also One in a thousands Movies. Ritesh Batra (Writer- Director) must be a genius, I would love to watch more from him.
And Yes...The Gujrati film "The Good Road" (though i havn't seen yet) must have been really a masterpiece to beat this (assuming the fair competition) and being India's entry to the Oscars Else it was a strong contender.

Dedication : Synonyms for
Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
The People Who are Planning to go for Chennai Express and Havn't Watched BMB, Go for 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' instead of 'Chennai Express' If its still up in your city's theaters.
Main Chennai Express Dekhi..... Ghar Aati.... Review Likhti.. :P
I think its a wastage of a post on my Blog by giving headline for this movie review So just added in the same post of 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag' under it(as its par below BMB) just to express my views on it.I don't like to give headlines to unnecessary , unworthy things. :P

The Revolution has begun...
If I would If would describe it in 1 line then its a Shaandaar Movie with a Jaandar Concept - depicting the real scenario of our corrupt system. Must watch by all Mango people.
Don't look at some dumb reviewer who rated Chennai Express more than this one and i am sure those paid reviewers are also a threat to country and economy because of them public is spending 200 crore on Chennai Express and not watching this one. I would personally appeal people to go for this one and promote such movies which are giving good message to society as well as entertaining. Specially people in rural areas must get message to watch it as they still don't understand how politicians are using them.
Even though, the political scenario of India has changed very much since then, But the Evils of the society like corruption, crime and misuse of political power to suppress common man's Voice still exists which was the reason of Great Anti Corruption Movement in last 2 years by Anna ji and his team.
Movie gives a somewhat realistic view of Anna's Satyagraha and TELLING US, how a Non -Violence Revolution can turn into local War or Terrorism and what could be done to stop it from turning into such chaos . It is a Tribute to Gandhi Ji and Anna Ji and their Struggles for the Common Man's problems.
It also helps us understand mistakes that Team Anna Must have done, like how government made Anna to break his fast and have food, thus stopped the biggest revolution ever seen in my life time by false promises. It also teaches how a revolution with non-violence should work and what kinds of mistakes should be avoided.
If you see the Performances of cast then Bachchan Saab is amazing by making judgment with the intense role of Gandhi or Anna ji . Ajay Devgan has done a Great job with the role of educated and awakened youth. Manoj Bajpeyi is outstanding in the negative role by his unique dialogue delivery style .
Arjun Rampal is very good as an aggressive local leader. Kareena Kapoor is good as an intelligent and honest journalist . Amrita Rao is doing justice as a modern, educated, school teacher who stands up against the wrong and contribute in the fights against it.
Overall, It succeeds to touch but fails to penetrate .Intention was good but not the execution up to that extent. It is like every other Prakash Jha film based on the politics and social realistic common man's problems faced in India (i.e. Gangajal, Rajneeti, Aarakshan, Apaharan). Overall a good and decent movie , a one time watch but worth watching.

Success will shamelessly follow!
"Bachcha, Kaabil Bano..Phir Safalta toh Jhak Maar-kar Peechee Bhaagegi" , Well, These are not my words , If you had watched 3 Idiots carefully than definitely You have given a thought to the last line of its script.Yeah,It was the last line.But, does it really deserves the last place. Thats why i thought to start this review with this line only.
Really,The whole zyst of the movie lies in this one line.:)
I remember earlier that SRK made a statement: "Films are for entertainment and Messages are for post offices." Well Aamir has proved again (after TZP) that cinema is probably the best medium for giving a message and after looking at the face of every person coming out of the cinema hall, I can say that a message can be entertaining also.Somebody has very nicely pointed out on Aamir's Blog that "IShan Awasthi" of TZP has grown up and in engineering college became like "Rancho..." because, the innocence and mischievousness of darsheel can be seen very well in Rancho. Simply we can say that 3 Idiots is Taare Zameen Par Part-2 :)
Life is all about listening to your heart and chasing your dreams. That's the essence of 3 IDIOTS, directed by the extremely talented Mr. Raju Hirani. Let me come to the point right away.
If, There are two kinds of movie,
Movie that tingle your Heart,
Movie that storm your Brain,
Then I saw the third kind..
In the history of last 10 years of Bollywood , Twice I came across a movie that doesn't only entertains but at the same time make you feel the agony and anxiety of the characters and above all,makes you think and makes you QUESTION yourself. Can you recall , Yeah, You are rite, before 3 Idiots , It was RDB.
3 IDIOTS was over-hyped and that could be dangerous for any film since it's the expectations which kill a film if the content doesn't match up to its hype.This Time again, as usual Everyone was wanted to find out what new trick Aamir Khan had up his sleeve.But this time He was having Mr. Raj Kumar Hirani who After ‘Jaadu ki Jhappi’ and ‘Gandhigiri’, teaches you the new philosophy of ‘AAL IZ WELL’ and "Make your passion as your profession". Take a bow!
Movie starts with the dialouge "Life is a race, Tej Nahi Bhaagoge toh Log tumhe Kuchal Kar Aage Nikal Jaayenge" and whole movie is a very good attempt to prove this line as False.
Let me tell you my philosophy in this case(plz bear with that, you are on my Blog :P).
ANyway, I am completly agree with that "Life is a Race" But who has forced you to run on the same path where the Crowd is running . Who has told you that those are the ONLY paths which will lead you to your destination.Dude/Dudettee, Have some courage and Tell Yourself that you are a great indivisual, Blieve in yourself , If you will not blieve in yourself, who else will blieve in you. And I am sure if you will try to follow the path made by yourself than you will not find any crowd and without crowd, Logo k Kuchalkar Aage nikalne ki baat toh bahut door hai." [:D]
So watching 3 Idiots was like watching the ‘Munnabhai Series’ without Munnabhai. No jadu ki jhappi, no mamoo, no J dot Asthana, but if they had been in this film too, how would Chetan Bhagat will try to be in the glory of this un-deserving limelight?
According to me Chatur Ramlingam Urfff Silencer (real name- Omi Vaidya - he did so well to his character tht no1 wants to call him by his real name, he will be known as Chatur in the history of cinema) should be given the best actor award in this FilmFare but this cant happen b'cause SRK n BIG-B ne bhi to movies ki hain,It will be insult of those Legends. this is the problem why Aamir dont like these award functions .
Chetan Bhagat's Controversy
I want to ask one thing to Mr. Chetan that- Where were you when another movie "Hello"which was also based on your another book One Night @ Call Center, got released. Does anyone even remember there was a movie called "Hello" and the very bad response it got. It was a total flop and Chetan was probably happy that he got his credits.He probably expected something similar here but it was not happened being an Aamir and Raju movie.
Who signed a legal contract with vidhu vinod chopra gave the book to Raju Hirani to make a movie ? Isn't that Chetan bhagat?? If he was so concerned about the makers of the film and he would have been tensed for the last two years when the movie started. But he cant answer, he can only say sorry to Aamir after making this hype becoz , becoz Media is showering attention on him now .It would have done long time back........... But perhaps then he could not have predicted the success of the movie. I have read many comments on aamir's Blog which were coming against 3 Idiots management and Aamir for Chetan Bhagat's controversy. But reading those ,It was looking obvious, that he has appointed few persons to write those comments for only promotion of his book. I dont know why he is making so hue and cry because when the movie was not released it was already in air that movie is somehow based on FPS. now its released ..n people liked it because 3 idiots team has presented it wonderfully .
It’s a different story that still has the peon, a Doctor, a Dean (or some such), jhol in exams, suicides, mis-understanding parents, faulty ‘system‘ and one DUDE who rises against all odds and sets everything right & lives happily ever after with his stupidity.the whole theme of the movie is completly different from the Novel's theme.I loved the movie even better bcoz-there are so many scenes in the movie which you will not find anywhere in the book. He should understand this. Movie and book, both are good at their places. But there is no point of making this as a controversy. There are so many messages conveyed through the course of the movie mixed with fun and laugther and presented very intelligently to the audience. Mr . Chetan Bhagat plz try to understand this n dont use it for the pramotion of your book in the negative sense.
Nyway Coming back to movie,
It's emotional, it's entertaining, it's enlightening. The film has tremendous youth appeal and feel-good factor to work in a big way.
if you are in forty-plus age group… you are going to become jealous of Aamir Khan's looks in the movie. This man justifies role of 22 years old Rancho amazingly.You cannot imagine a 45 year old playing a 22 year old college kid, but when it’s Aamir Khan, anything can happen!
So to Sum Up i can say ,3 IDIOTS is not about idiots or nincompoops. It's about three engineering students who believe in 'I'll Do It On my Terms'(IDIOT) and that's what the three characters achieve in life and that's what Hirani, VV Chopra, Aamir eventually achieve at the end of the movie. Making a movie on their terms! So Hoth Ghumaa..Sittii Baja n Sitti bajaa k Bol..Bhaiyaa.."Aal Izz Well." :)

Fake Aamir In Ghajini where is the real One?-
Hi all,Well,few days back I have seen Ghajini - the most awaited movie of this year..Srry 4 being late, because of my corporate responsibilities :), let me clear you one thing, In this review(same as my previous reviews which have different styles than professional reviews),I am neither going to tell you about the story of movie nor the other things related to movie which are well hyped .
As u all know, that I am hardcore Aamir fan :).. but tell you frankly, i didn't like the movie that much, reaon is that i never expect this from Aamir.Im not saying tht Ghajini was bad, It runs in pace and you never feel out of time or bored even its a 3+ hrs movie.you don't know how the time has passed.
But I want a fresh movie from him,not a remake of something.we all know Aamir as an innovative person however in Ghajini thr was nothing new except his 8 pack abs and the collection of the movie has made history because of so hype.
Picture Says it all..
(Juss read the tattos on his body. which tatto cost how much?)
Kalpna was killed = All India gross 140 crore :P like wise-
It Seems that Aamir has forgotten himself,Hoping that he will read this review :D ,i want to remind him the real Aamir ,which is still inside him and fighting with this new Aamir.Also for you all who have forgotten old Aamir..I am trying to recall you real or old Aamir ..lets c how much im capable..
1)- In the times when every filmmaker wants established actor and actress in coloured clothings,dizzling locations ,In that time Real Aamir dare to shoot a film about childrens in his production itself.Even he already knows that children-focusing movies have not done good in times like - Nanhe Jaisalmer,Chain khuli ki main Khuli, even Raju chacha with well known stars.Such bold step taking persons are on counts in bollywood.
2)-Real Aamir rarely used to come on TV's for interviews, yet he spends more than a hour chatting with his fans on his Blog for answering their senseless questions( like- Aamir ji aap kab sote ho,kya khaate ho,etc).Also he refused invites from Koffee with Karan.yet he came on a some small talk-show at NDTV.While other actors are all over the media praising their films and do their best to keep media happy,Also tries to collect dozen of hero n heroins for their film to make a hit, he didn't make a single media appearance before RDB just because he was angry with the media, and made RDB a blockbuster of the days without making a single public appearance for its publicity. Wow!
3)- He won't go go for the stupid dozen of bollywood award shows (Like two years back SRK was not getting best actor award thn Zee introduced a new award "Fun entertainer of the year" for SRK, because he was present in that function.WTF) , besides real Aamir went to raise voice for the misery of the troubled farmers in the Narmada Valley.also went to the border to entertain our soldiers.
4)-While other actors do 3-4 movies in year, where he gives his 3 years for making himself for a role at the height of his career (The Rising).
5)-He is the person who can dare to work with with Ashutosh Gowarikar when he(Gowarikar) has given 2 flops already, and can work on the script which was already refused by most of established actors.Even he can work with Rakesh Mehra when he had only a flop in his resume Named as -AKS!!In both cases he made one of the best films of Indian cinema.
6)- In the times While other actors are advertising everything from undergarments to hair-oil to chyawanprash, bt Aamir was having self-dignity ..his ads can be counted on fingers with some innovation.
7)- Also Real Aamir is the trend setter..which other followed but never came close.
- He only started the trend of diffrent looks in different movies. now every actor tries to look different in every movie.
- And well, He started only the trend of blogging in bollywood (after inspiring from me :P lolz). than I heard that BiG-B, Anil Kapoor,shilpa,Salman...hav also started blogging.
- He sang ‘Aati Kya Khandala’ which became the anthem of the loafers of whole country.Than SRK ('Apun Bola') ,Sanjay Dutt ("Aye shivani") followed but no body have given a second listening.
- And last but not least If A barber want to remain in his business than he need to learn how to make his hairstyles. :P ..
So Mr. Aamir Hussain Khan if you are reading :D, take a bow! .You may not having the label of the 'King'or the temples with your statue ..still You are the greatest masterpiece in the museum of the Hindi Film Industry ans inspiration to many new comers.But we love that old Aamir not this new fake Aamir -
- Who is seen on TV frequently .goes in Dus KA Dum.even cuts his birthday cake in front of media.
- Now he openly joking about his pet dog named Shahrukh.Also seen in advertisement of Monaco biscuits.
- Came on the premier of race-which is hardcore masala film-saying that he likes the work of Abbas -Mustan.
- And Now he is doing the film Ghajini which is frame to frame copy of Tamil version only the climax was changed.
Don’t be fooled by this fake Aamir. Please find the real Aamir for me.
Neways its a Ghajini review and most of the things you already know ,nothing much to write in review about movie,still few things i liked in it..may be you have also liked or not noticed ,so now something from Ghajini....
Few of Touching Scenes,I liked
1)-When Kalpna gives 1 Peti (u all tapories can understand very well, :)) to Sachin(actually Sanjay) for his mother's treatment, aftr selling her car which she has brought by her life long income.
2)-Jiah comes and gifts him the cement slab on which Sanjay and kalpana had stepped-on before entering the new house gifted to kalpana by the Airvoice company.and In the last scene Sanjay is shown sitting on a bench with the memories of his beloved fiancee Kalpana.
3)-And last but not least the most touching thing of movie is that Kalpana(Asin) never come to know that her fiance is so famous personalty and dies even without knowing his actual name.
If you talk about acting, than Asin has really impressed ..she was looking nice and fresh in the movie :)....and i think will definitely get her place in Bollywood.ya already doing another movie with Salman and Ajay Devgan.Aamir's acting or can say action, was gud..but in the flashback story of his past life..he was looking lil nervous,can do much more better.Anyways he has also done his job wonderfully,looking great in the movie with 8 packs abs (which Actually inspired me :P lolz).
Overall It was a nice attempt.it leaves you reeling even after the film is over and the effect doesn't go away for some time.There's so much happening in every scene and the screenplay is so gripping that you don't feel the need to look at the theater ceiling or at your watch at brief intervals.
Music By all time Fav. A.R. Rehman
The opener " Guzarish "
is very good modern Bollywood music, AR Rahman type. Javed Ali has sung this very well!
But My Fav song Of Movie is- " Kaise Mujhe" is an excellent track!Benny Dayal sings well, and Shreya Ghoshal is even better. Rahman displays tremendous control here.. ..More appealing is the lyrics of this song by Prasoon Joshi, who is countinously winning Filmfare Award for Best Lyrics since last two years(in 2007 for Fanaa and in 2008 For 'MAA' in Taare Zameen Par ).Now he is ready to complete his Hattric.
Karthik gives the 'south Indian film music' feel to Behka with his vocals,the effect in which Aamir comes in six diff hair-styles..tht was amazing. others songs are average.
Thats all about Ghajini and the New Aamir of Ghajini.
Still I like Aamir.I really admire his hard work and dedication. Hoping next time he will come with something extraordinary like 'Taare ZaMeen Par','Rang de Basanti' or 'Lagaan' etc and will never choose this type of script like villen killed his lover and he was engross for revenge.Eagerly Waiting for release of "Three Idiots"-Upcoming Aamir's movie.which is based on our one of the fav. novels- Five Point Some One :)
its 2 AM here ,feeling sleepy...morning mei office hai..so its time to go to bed else i hav to sleep in office :Pthanku..cya tata bbye.!!

Worst Bollywood Awards-2008
.well,few days back i hav watched star screen award( n yesterday filmfare also) ...i got an idea.. a real business idea..A 24 hour channel on bollywood film awards...lolzz....seriously, ... see the number of award functions these days, I’m sure i can run a 24×7 channel and have enough footage for the whole year.lol
It took Dilip Kumar 8 years to get 8 awards for the best actor. Today, it takes only one year to get that many. Ridiculous, simply ridiculous - it seems like a fashion - “jeb mein bahut paisa hai.. chalo awards function shuru karte hain”.yup guys have some brains(I’m talking to the organizers of shitty, no-one-cares award shows).Because of some people like these, the whole award things is a now a freakin’ joke.’..Have you ever thought that why Amir dont attend any of these award function.The reason will be clear to you after reading this whole post.
I can’t recall...actually I feel the pains to compile the list of all the awards and give my comments on them. For some of you who don’t know how bad the situation is, here’s some painful things im presenting before you:
Filmfares are technologically the most advanced awards in the world. Seriously. You would not believe that they were using a high fundoo computer program few years back for determining their awards. Here is snippet of their computer program I found when I hacked their system (confidential) :P:
if (film.productionhouse = “big banner”)
then (best picture = film.name
best actor = film.hero
best actress = film.heroine
best director = film.director);
High tech, isn’t it? if u see few years back scenerio..same code they were using(Ek lo, teen muft). bt thank god this year they have made sum changes in code..The Indian viewing public is so stupid (Don was a hit and Omkara below average.. need I say more?)
still they had made a shit this year too ...In the best film category, Black Friday,Parzania,Dharm,johny Gaddar have been left out in favor of Om Shanti Om.(what the heck was tht). My problem is that OSO is an average movie, but not worthy of a best film nomination though entertaining, OSO is ordinary cinema. In fact, it doesnt sounds gud for the industry that is promoting RDB and Lage Raho,ignoring good films.Black Friday is a path-breaking film and deserves the honors. Too bad it is pitied against TZP.
Another thing..i think u all must have noticed..that there was no nomination clip of TZP.
2. Star Screen Awards
well in this show the most shitty thing was ......Darsheel Safary, better known as Ishaan Awasthi, has NOT BEEN NOMINATED in the best actor category. Instead, he has been nominated as the Best Child Actor. What nonsense on Earth is that? When a 64 year old Amitabh Bachchan can be nominated against a 20 something Shahid Kapur, why can’t an 11 year old be nominated alongside? Does the best Actor award come with the sign ADULT ONLY? The boy has also been left out from the Best Newcomer category..!!
3. IIFA Awards
4. Zee Cine Awards
5. Sansui Awards
6. GIFA Awards
7. Apsara Awards
8. Bollywood Movie Awards
there are so many award fuction i have listed few...bt now im not going to comment any of them..b'cause its wasting of my precious time on such shitty things..which i can use in making this post more intresting.
well,I know sponsorships are nice, but please don’t over do it..like adding their name in the name of function. It doesn’t sound nice when the most prestigious film award in the country is called something like ‘Fair and Lovely Filmfare Award or just imagine what will happen if any undergarments company will sponser these award shows..he he...Jocky Filmfare Award.
So frnds for my award function i hav got sponsorship from a Juta- Chappal vendor of Teliyarganj Allahabad.
NoW I am going to introduce ...A new award Function called...
Lakhani Shoes Bollywood Awards-2008
Sponsored By- Maharaja Lakhani Shoe Store, Teliyarganj, Allahabad
Media Partners- Orkut.com
Special event Sponsorship by- Kajal Photostate,MNNIT
Directed By- who ?? Ofcourse u shld know..lolz
Rules And Regulations
now i am going to announce few rules of this prestigious award function.
1-If you are shocked at my choice of the best actress and the best supporting actress, I shall give you a hint about the selection criteria - it is not good acting. Go for figure!:P
2-Best Actor in a comic role and Best Actor in a negative role are stupid awards. so these have been cancled.An actor is an actor. Tragic, comic, positive, negative should not matter. They were created in the days when Prem Chopra was always a bad guy and Mehmood was always the funny sidey. They were to honor these artists. Today, the film’s ‘hero’ can be a gunda (Omkara) or a terrorist (Fanaa). He can even have an affair (Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna). So the award for the comedian and the villian makes no sense today. If you still wanna keep them,.then in 2008 we should also have awards like Best Actor in the role of a Hockey Coach, Best Actor in the role of an arts teacher,best mom, best dad...lolz
3- Well this year i am announcing awards only listing below..
# Worst Picture
# Worst Actor (Male)
# Worst Actor (Female)
# Worst Song that everyone else liked
# Most Nonsensical Lyrics

1. Xerox Best Film
2. Xerox Best Music
5-As for the other awards like screenplay, editing, I simply don’t know how to judge them. So I won’t.

neway for the SRK fans.i want to say that i am also a grt SRK fan..No doubt he is a gud actor..dont take me wrong. as in last post comment few have written.bt few things i dont like..that i have mentioned in my earlier posts.
Neways next year we can think for the Best awards also.b'cuase many awards function already have given those this year and i am quite late.I was working on this post since 1 month.bt many things came in between like CT's and CULRAV (our college cultural fest)..so i was not able to post on time.Neways
Congratulations to all the winners…!!

Aamir and SRK Together...
The above picture shows the two Khans- Aamir and Shah Rukh- in a very cheerful mood.So here, mystery is the 'conversation between them'. isn't it?? lemme think..wat it can be...
probably congratulating each other for the success of their respective films released last year. Apparently, Aamir Khan had messaged SRK to fix a date to watch Taare Zameen Par. thn , Shah Rukh has promised to watch the film with his kids, now is he a true star or what! Appreciating other’s work was a quality he always possessed.
Recently i have seen 14th Annual Star Screen Award. and I am very glad to c tht Taare Zameen Par has completely rocked the whole show as per my expectations in last post of Review-TZP.
Lets Count 4 TZP.
1. Best debut director - Aamir Khan(TZP)
2. Best Dialogues - TZP
3. Best Story- TZP
4. Best child actor - Darsheel(TZP)
5. Best supporting actor - Aamir Khan(TZP)
6. The best lyrics-TZP
7. Best actor special jury award - Darsheel(TZP)
8. Best director - Aamir Khan(TZP) and Shimit amin (Chak De)
Total Awards won
Chak de -4
8 > 4+3
so ... 1 Aamir movie > 2 SRK movies
Neways srry SRK fans ...No doubt SRK is one of the grt actors of Indian Cinema..bt im lil bit anti to him...only b'cuse ...most of d time he goes 4 money n fame...not for work...n tht is harmful to public..rest is ok....n ya i know ..every1 wants money n fame..why not SRK...bt 1st preference should be commitment to work thn money n fame..thts wat Aamir have ...he is also in one of the highest payer of bollywood bt always try to give his 100 % in his work n aftr all He is rocking ..n proving himself.
Really Its a fact tht TZP is the best movie of 2007.
we all should pray ,so tht it will b sent 4 Oscar to represent Indian Cinema !!
1 more thing .. .i want to change the layout n style of this blog ..wanna add some new features n also easily loadable template...so ur suggestions n comments are always welcomed. i hv got very gud response 4 last post...few hav commented on blog...n many told me orally ..thnx to all frm bottom of my heart ...thr are few things which i personally dont like in Star screen Award ..n also wanted to find out reason tht why Aamir never attend any Indian Award function ..will try to write in my next post.
thnk u ..tata.. bie bie!!

Wow what a nice flick.Only 1 line i can say aftr seeing the movie tht "Aamir bhai has done again"...n also forced me to comeback on my blog...as i was also waiting 4 a gud movie 4 my comeback aftr little bit busy life in placements n all....bt no one was able to do tht...except Chak De India bt that was released whn i was busy..not able to see tht ontime because of placements interviews.I would not make the mistake of comparing this movie with RDB or Chak De India, since all three movies belong to an entire different genre. Bt I must say tht Best Movie of this year is none other thn Taare Zameen Par.Music is also good soothing to ear . I like all the songs. bt "Meri Maa" n "Mera Jahan" n "Kholo kholo" are one of my fav.
If you want to know how good Taare is, just go to your nearest theater and watch the people coming out after the show.U will see tht the thing which surrounds a crowd exiting a theater will be missing.Some of them would be walking in slow motion.Some of them looks astonished. At least that’s what happened in the theater I went to. Not a single soul was talking after the movie, probably because what everyone saw on screen was not fiction, but a semi-biography of his/her own life. In fact,I left the theater in pin drop silence. The first thing i said to 1 who is near to me is - ‘Aamir Bhai has done it again.’
Indeed, Aamir Khan had done it again. I have a feeling that Taare would change people like no other movie has previously done.This Movie has openend the door to others directors to think beyond the track.
I always try to write my review in a different manner n try to give my best...like Aamir (lolz juss kiddin)..bt really...i never get worried about who is reading or not ....or any1 is reading or not.....and also dont care tht i m writing in diff manner thn professionals used to write ,,i always write in my style n write wat i like.....i juss do it 4 my satisfaction n feel happy whn i saw sum1 is commenting on my blog..many comment i hav got from NRI persons ....whom i dont know tht gives me strenth n becomes the factor to motivate myself...credit goes to few of my frnds n these ppl who encourages me by commenting directly or indirectly.. , n i know tht every time i am learning something new with every review . . that gives me the sense of achievement like a kid whn 1st time touches the wall n u can see how much he became happy by touching it again n again. He has not done a big job , he also knows tht his family members are touching tht wall many times in a day ...bt the thing is sense of achievement.He becomes happy because he has achieved something which he had not done before n dont care about others ...this is called sense of achievement 4 tht i do write my reviews with pleasure and Aamir makes his movies.
I know only Aamir can make a film like Taare. But let us assume he did not make it (dream on!). What would the film have been like?
~*If Karan Johar made Taare*~
- Obvious starcast:
- Shah Rukh Khan as the arts teacher (duh duh duh!!).
- Aryan Khan as the dyslexic child (even if he could not act for nuts).
- Rani Mukerjee as the kid’s mom (assuming Kajol is unavailable).
- Abhishek Bachchan as the kid’s dad.
- Amitabh Bachchan as the school principal (who cares if the role is 4 few minutes, he can afford it).
- It would be shot in New York to appeal to the NRI audience.
- The story line would obviously be different. SRK would fall for the dyslexic kid’s mom. The last scene would have the mom running to the teacher rather than the kid. And again, like in so many other movies, SRK would get someone else’s girl.
- It would have one dance number.
- The film would be titled ‘Kuch Taare Zameen Par.’
*If Sanjay Leela Bhansali made Taare*
- Obvious starcast:
- Salman as the teacher.
- Rani as the mother.
- Of course the whole film would be shot on elaborate sets. The school would be nothing short of US university.
- An orchestra would play every time anyone cried.
- Slow motion, different camera angles for every scene.
- The school uniforms would match the classroom walls even though that does not make a f***ing difference.
- The film would cost 60 crores.
~*If Farah Khan made Taare*~
- Obvious starcast:
- SRK as the teacher (yawn).
- In the original Taare, Aamir makes an entry at the interval point. In Farah’s version, SRK would be on screen on for 2.30 hrs out of the 2.45 hrs and would be introduced in the first scene itself.
- The story would be changed to make sure the above happened. The focus of the film would be a teacher who helps a kid fight dyslexia.
- To make it a complete entertainer, there would be a romantic angle, comedy, and action thrown in. Oh idea!! Nikumbh’s character likes another teacher and the kiddo helps him.. throw in some comedy moments there and you have romance and comedy settled. For action.. hmm.. lemme see.. oh yah, the kid gets kidnapped and the teacher fights the baddies to save him. Wow!! I’m quite an imaginative writer. I can see how Farah can write a film from scratch in two weeks straight.
- The film posters would have a big SRK with the tiny image of the kid in the background.
~*If Rakesh Roshan made Taare*~
- Obvious starcast:
- Hrithik Roshan as the teacher.
- Since Rakesh Roshan cannot think beyond science fiction these days, this film would have that too. Instead of dyslexia, the kid would have alienositis or something, a condition induced due to him witnessing an alien abduction.
- Instead of Nikumbh being an arts teacher, he would be a physics teacher, and instead of asking kids to be creative, he would ask them to challenge the science we know.
- In the scene where Nikumbh asks the kids to open their minds and make whatever they want outdoors, the kid Ishaan, instead of making a boat, would end up making a working spaceship prototype.
- Nikumbh would cure the kids problem by making a full fledged version of the kid’s prototype, traveling to the alien planet, and asking them to give the kid his powers back.
- The film would have music by Rajesh Roshan ripped off from some world music.
- The film’s name would again start with a K.. probably ‘Kuch Aliens Taaron se Zameen Par’.
- The director would make sure Hrithik gets to show all his abilities. This would mean a scene with Roshan jr flexing his muscles, and a dance competition in the end, instead of an arts competition.
~*If Priyadarshan made Taare:*~
- Obvious starcast:
- Akshay Kumar as the teacher.
- Paresh Rawal as the kid’s dad.
- It would be a brainless comedy. The kid’s dyslexia would be made fun of. Half the times the parents will be running after the kid from one room to the other and that, in the director’s opinion, would be funny.
- The film will be full of sex jokes. So for example, when Akshay would come to the parents telling them that their son has dyslexia, the ignorant father would say something inappropriate like ‘iss umar mein? par kaise, woh to hamesha boys school mein padha hai!’. And yes, the director would think it is funny.
- In the climax of the film all the characters in the film would run around in the amphitheater for no reason, spilling colors on each other. That’s where the film will end, without any logical conclusion.
- And of course, Paresh Rawal would emote like an epileptic himself making us question the boy’s mental abilities anyway.
I know there are a lot of other directors, but I choose these guys because I feel they are the most gutless or overrated directors we have today. They keep doing the same shit again and again and more often than not depend on the stars to carry a shitty film forward. They have no courage to try something non-nonsense, something that can use the medium of cinema for a little more than just entertainment, in spite of being the most sought after directors in the country.
The reason I am making this comparison at all is to show how Aamir (and Amol Gupte) has made a pure film, without giving into the temptation of masala or ‘what would the audience like to see’ philosophy; for giving chance to fantastic yet unknown actors like Vipin Sharma and Tisca Chopra(Parents Of Ishaan) for riding against the tide; for not trying to hog the limelight in the film by happily playing second fiddle to the boy (even Aamir Khan’s name comes after Darsheel Sarfi, the boy, in the credits); for giving the audience something different once again as an entertainer; and for truly caring about the society and using the medium to bring a change.So "Taare Zammen Per" has made other director's "Sitaare Gutter Mei" !!
I remember earlier this year SRK made a statement: ‘films are for entertainment; messages are for post offices.’ Well Aamir Khan has proved that cinema is probably the best medium for giving a message and I can say that looking at the face of every person in the cinema hall. Not only that, he has proved (yet again!) that a message can be entertaining.
Few Reasons that enhanced my liking of this movie
I remember my mama ji used to discuss with me about their kids studies. n i used to tell him always tht never force anyone to go in this or tht stream.Important thing is excellence. only teach them to maintain excellence in watever field they are . Every stream has gates for reaching success. N the same thing Aamir wants to tell by this movie.
Another thing is I am great fan of Aamir since long time because he try to give his 100% to watever he does. He can also sign 4-5 movies in a year and can earn money bt he wont use innocence of public like shahruk do. Yaar simple si baat hai...Public Likes u , public listen u , U are grt star of indian cinema thn its your moral duty tht try to give message 4 the betterment of society with ur movie. No i am not telling that every movie shld be like tht....it is not possible , bt phir bhi in other movies try to work on script n shooting ....Like Om Shanti Om is a real shit , bt shahruk ne public k trust ka galat faayda uthaya , also diwali time ka. dard-e-disco , six packs n many useless things are the cause of making hit of a shit movie . Now a days directors are working on adds more thn movie script or theme. They are using their mind tht How to make ppl fool.in present scenerio the situation is ...tht if shahruk will make a movie in which he is juss sleping thn also public will go 2 c tht n hope tht he will wake up.
Leave shahruk i hav personal problem with him...bt wat about other directors like Ram Gopal Verma , He is a real F***er. He has made Sholey Remake which is not even a 1000th part of real sholey. another thing is his three movies( Aag, Darling, one more i forgot name) are releasing at same time of same heroin n all are big shit , what is this yaar...really he is makin fool to public.
it shld not be like tht we have to change our mind setups .we shld not go in theater by name of actor or director bt we shld go 4 content, acting n theme .public has to wake up n shld promote the movies like IQBAL , DOR , Chak De , Taare Zameen per n many...
Its my personal request tht if some1 ha not watched the movie "Taare"thn plzzz go to cinema hall ,dont watch pirated version ,,warna Aamir ka nuksaan hoga...its our duty tht we shld encourage such directors so tht they can think of giving more better next time.
Anyways Aamir the director has arrived. With just one film, he has set the bar higher than most of you can only dream of reaching.So the indirect moral of TZP is "Dream Big N Dream Different". n Be committed to ur Work...you can also make a big hit..not only in case of movie,,but also in ur life.
|Best to watch with:||Family|
|Best part in the movie:||Script|
