Director: Nikhil Advani
Story: Nikhil Advani
Dialogues: Ancita Dutt Guptan
Star Cast: Akshay Kumar, Anushka Sharma, Rishi Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia, Hard Kaur, Tinnu Anand, Prem Chopra and othersIf any movie could fit in the genre of Drama, it’s got to be “Patiala House”. Akshay Kumar played Gattu in this movie. He is a man who has watched his dreams die and restrained himself from going for his dreams. The movie revolves around the conflict Gattu and his father played by Rishi Kapoor, who lives in London’s Southall area but could never absorb into his adopted country. And prime reason for this was various racial attacks on him and his family. He stood against these racial attacks which results him being jailed for violence against ‘goras’. So he now hates them with such a passion that it is now only motto in his life. So when his son got an opportunity to play for England cricket team, he does not allow him. And his son Gattu gave up his dreams for his father’s sake and live dejected life for years. But his silence affects the other members in his big joint family. They have to kill their dreams as well. Till the character played by Anushka Sharma came into Gattu’s life. She makes Gattu go for his dreams once more. But how will his father react to that?
Frankly apart from Anushka Sharma I could say anything good about this movie. Logic evades me throughout the movie. I can understand a comedy movie being illogical but movie in the genre of Drama needs some logic. Anyway this movie was lot better than Nikhil Advani’s recent movies.
If I have to rate this movie I will give it 5 out of 10.

Movie Review “No Strings Attached” (2011)
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Director: Ivan Reitman
Story: Michael Samonek, Elizabeth Meriwether
Screenplay: Elizabeth Meriwether
Star Cast: Natalie Portman, Ashton Kutcher, Kevin Kline, Cary Elwes and others
I had to admit, I watched this movie because Ashton Kutcher is in it. He is like a veteran now in Romantic Comedy movies but I like his “Butterfly Effect” the most. I like this actor.
To tell you what this movie is about, as the title says “No Strings Attached”, it is a story of 2 people who don’t want to get into any relationship. They just want physical relationship and no emotional attachment. But can they sustain it?
Adam played by Ashton Kutcher and Emma played by Natalie Portman first meet at camp, then several years later, at a party. Several years after that Adam has been dumped by a hot girlfriend and not just dumped she dumped him for his father. Adam drinks himself silly and next morning he finds himself naked in Emma's apartment, where she stays with her roommates. They have sex, next day Adam approach Emma to take one step forward but Emma is not interested in relationship. Instead she proposes that they should be using each other for sex without any emotional attachment. Adam obviously agrees and they have raunchy sex for days. You will think Adam will be happiest person in the world. But no he wants more; he wants to be in relationship with Emma. Will Emma agree? We will find that out end of the movie.
There are no dull moments in the movie as such. Like any other romantic comedy, this is light hearted entertaining movie. Both actors are pleasing to eyes and carried the role easily.
If I have to rate this movie I will give it 6 out of 10.
