Dum Maro Dum

Genre: Crime, Mystery, Thriller
Director: Rohan Sippy
Language: Hindi
Story: Shridhar Raghavan
Star Cast: Abhishek Bachchan, Bipasha Basu, Prateik Babbar, Aaditya Pancholi, Rana Daggubati, Mariah Gomes, Govind Namdeo, Deepika Padukone, Anaitha Nair, Vidya Balan
Music: Pritam
Dum Maro Dum is a movie set in Goa. In the movie Goa became capital of drugs in India because of greedy politicians and businessmen. So CM of Goa appoints ACP Vishnu Kamath played by Abhishek Bachchan to hunt down all the drug mafia. Lorsa Biscuita aka Biscuit played by Aditya Pancholi is the main drug dealer in that area. Biscuita uses needy youngsters for drug trafficking. One of such innocent boys is Lorry played by Prateik Babbar who wants to follow his girlfriend to US for higher education. But Police trap him and charge him for drug trafficking. His well wisher Joki played by Rana Daggubati tries his best to get him out of it. ACP Kamath has to find Michael Barbusa, an invisible man who runs this racket through Biscuit. How Kamath does complete his job with the help of Joki and Lorry forms the rest of the story.
Dum Maro Dum is good thriller. Definitely it is not unwatchable. Very well narrated and directed story and well enacted too by most of the actors. Music by Pritam enhanced the movie experience. It has the oomph we associate with Goa. Abhishek Bachchan yet again managed to amaze me with his singing ability. Deepika Padukone in item number was hot.
Aditya Pancholi as a villain did good job. But it left me wanting for little more. I strongly feel Bollywood today missing yesteryears villains like Pran, Amjad Khan or Amrish Puri. Bipasha was almost wasted in the movie. Her role is almost forgettable. Climax of the movie was also little disappointing. Other than that Rohan Sippy did commendable job.
If I have to rate this movie I will give 7 out of 10.

Patiala House

Genre: Drama
Director: Nikhil Advani
Language: Hindi
Story: Nikhil Advani
Dialogues: Ancita Dutt Guptan
Star Cast: Akshay Kumar, Anushka Sharma, Rishi Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia, Hard Kaur, Tinnu Anand, Prem Chopra and others
If 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 “Jhootha Hi Sahi” (2010)

Genre: Romantic comedy
Director: Abbas Tyrewala
Language: Hindi
Star Cast: John Abrahm, R. Madhavan, Pakhi, Raghu Ram, Manasi Scott, Anaitha Nair, Nandana Sen, Alishka Varde and others.

After hugely successful JAANE TU YA JAANE NA, Abbas Tyrewala comes up with one more romantic comedy JHOOTHA HI SAHI. It is refreshing than our regular romantic movies.

It is a story of Siddharth played by John Abraham who runs an Indian bookshop in London. I like the name of this bookshop - 'Kagaz Ke Phool', innovative and apt name for bookshop. This shop is co-owned by his Pakistani friend Omar played by MTV Rodies fame Raghu Ram. Siddharth has a girlfriend name Krutika played by Manasi Scott, who is very dominating. One night, Siddharth starts getting calls from unknown people who are attempting to commit suicide. He later comes to know that his number was mistakenly printed on fliers of an Indian emergency suicide helpline. Now, it's upon him to answer and help callers who want to end their lives. Bizarre isn’t it, but that’s how we meet Mishka played by Pakhi, who wants to attempt suicide because her boyfriend left her. Obviously Siddharth comforts her and stops her from committing suicide. In the process they became very close phone friend. Siddharth knows her name, but Mishka doesn't know his. So when they meet Siddharth recognizes her but not Mishka. With the help of his friendship with Mishka on the phone, Siddharth manages to woo Mishka. But what will happens when Siddharth’s girlfriend will find out? What if Mishka’s boyfriend comes back? What will happen when mishka knows the truth? Will that endanger their friendship too?

You will find it through some drama and some comedy. But I would have like to see some more drama and specially comedy. Abbas Tyrewalla did good job but there was much more scope to explore the script and situations. As for the actors John Abrahm did his best but I think he could not do enough justice to the character. Same goes for Pakhi. Stand out actor in this movie was undoubtedly Raghu Ram. He did it with ease, it seemed like he was not acting but playing himself.

If I have to rate this movie I will give it 6 out of 10.

Lafangey Parindey

Movie Review “Lafangey Parindey” (2010)

Genre: Romance
Director: Pradip Sarkar
Language: Hindi
Star Cast: Neil Nitin Mukesh, Deepika Padukone and others
Banner: Yash Raj

“Lafangey Parindey” is one catchy name for any movie but sadly the movie could not live up to its title. This movie is set in the chawls of Mumbai. So we find all that happens in slums and already seen on screen many times in this movie also.

This movie is a story of One-shot Nandu (played by Neil Nitin Mukesh) who is a local fighter of Tilak Wadi. He always fights his opponents blindfolded so naturally takes lot of thrashing. But he is a Hero so in the end one deadly blow from him and the opponent is knocked down. These fights is his way of earn his food. Then there is Pinky Palkar (played by Deepika Padukone), who is ambitious and hates her surrounding at Tilak Wadi. She’s a talented dancer and has the dream of winning a talent show with her roller-skating skills. Then one accident entangles their life together. An accident caused by Nandu which made Pinky blind and crashed all her dream. So out of guilt Nandu decides to help Pinky to achieve her dream and start to train her. While this training they start to love each other. But what will happen when Pinky knows the truth? Will her dream ever come true?

There are some cool stunts on bikes, some funny and witty lines. I love the child actor with slang and witty lines. He was the best thing about this movie. Neil Nitin Mukesh is good, Deepika look beautiful; acting could have been bit better. Pradip Sarkar has lost a tack a little after ‘Parinita’. Actually this does not seem like his type of movie.

If I have to rate this movie I will give it 5 out of 10.
