Ishqiya

Dee gives this movie a thumbs up

Judging by the trailers Ishqiya seems like another Vishal Bharadwaj special. His recent track record is impressive (Kaminey, Omkara etc) so expectations are bound to be sky high. Though not directed by him, he has donned the mantle of music director, writer and producer of the movie. The music is already making waves for sometime now especially 'Dil tho baccha hai'. The cast is impressive & unusual with the versatile Naseeruddin Shah playing a romantic-at-heart crook, Vidya Balan cast as a Femme Fatale and Arshad Warsi showing his talent as a hot blooded stud. The movie has piqued my interest though the dialogs don't seem 'family friendly'. Have a feeling one will have to sit with a Hindi-to-English dictionary to truly understand all the 'gali galoch' (remember Omkara?)

Overall its worth getting your hopes up. My psychic powers tell me this movie will deliver on our expectations.

Till then enjoy the music!

Prince Hindi Film


Psychic Dee advises to stay far far away from this movie ! If it were upto me, this movie would come with its own "injurious to mental health" warning. And that's just for starters.

For the adventurous masochists who dare watch the movie, here is what awaits you.

Terrible story line: 'Bourne Identity' meets 'Iron man' meets 'Heist'. How this ties in to saving humanity takes a certain leap of faith ...and lots of imagination.

Amateurish performances: First time director Kookie Gulati was probably enjoying cookies laced with marijuana before directing this. The music by Sachin Gupta (never heard of him before ...and probably wont in the future) is mediocre for lack of a better word. Atif Aslam with his nasal twang crooning "kaun hoon mei" makes you wonder "kahan hoon mei" or rather "yahan kyun hoon mei"

Cheesy dialogs: The corny dialogs deserve their own paragraph. "Na mumkin ko mumkin karna uski adat hai, jaan ki baazi lagana uski fitrat hai, vho khatre se bhi jyada khatarnak hai" really?.. give me a break. The one dialog that stood out for me was "coin dhundo aur mere paas aake apni memory le jao" ...so are we talking about a human here or a vending machine??

If only movies came with their own 1-800 toll free number, I would love to give the cast a piece of my mind but what they really deserve is a kick on the 'behind'. Until that opportunity presents itself, you will have to cope with the trauma on your own.

Watch this at your own peril. Consider yourself warned!

Well Done, Abba

Well Done AbbaDee gives this movie a thumbs up.

After a 2 week hiatus I was itching to get a premonition about some film, any film... all the movies which were releasing didn't need any premonition they only needed luck! So didn't want to waste my pyschic powers!!! Till this movie caught my eye...

A Shyam Benegal movie, didn't need any more persuaSion to go all out and watch the trailers.. The story is about Armaan Ali played by versatile actor Boman Irani, a driver who works for a executive in Mumbai. He takes leave to go look for a match for his teenage daughter (Minnisha Lamba). When he returns back his employer wants to fire him. The story he tells to try and save his job is something to look out for! But is the story he tells true???

This movie has made rounds of The 6th Dubai Film Festival, The 33rd World Montreal Film Festival 2009 in "World Greats" Section & The 53rd London Film Festival 2009 in "World Cinema Section"

From the looks of it this movies seems to be funny, well thought, well made and has a whole bunch of talented people. Simple plot line but should be worth a look.

Road, Movie

Road Movie Abhay DeolRoad, Movie - Dee gives this movie a thumbs up.

For starters, the movie name “Road, Movie” somehow reminded me of a hilarious movie title – “Daag- the fire”. I thought that this movie too, judging by the name, would fall under of the do-not-venture-near-this-movie category. If the film makers haven't bothered with naming the movie with something better, what can be expected from the movie itself??

Well I would have to admit I was wrong. The credentials of the movie definitely surprised and impressed me to a great extent. Directed by Dev Benegal (English, August, Spilt Wide Open), this movie stars Abhay Deol (Dev D, Oye Lucky…, Manorama six feet under...) whose name today is synonymous with ‘hatke’ type of movies. He dares to do something different and creative. This Deol dude rocks and has so far lived up to the public’s high expectations.

Here is the story in a nutshell -- Wanting to run away from becoming a sales man in his father's hair oil business he offers to drive a old Chevy across the desert to sea coast. On the way he picks 3 other travelers. This is a story of their journey/discovery of life together and how they find joy and laughter.

The amazing thing is that this movie has been making rounds of all movie festivals around the world before releasing today. It was official selection of Berlinale, Doha Tribeca, Tokyo, Toronto & Cannes Film Festival. Quiet impressive I must say.

I would say go watch this movie for one simple reason that you might get to see something different and good than usual.

Karthik Calling Karthik

Karthik Calling Karthik Bollywood cinemaKarthik Calling Karthik


Dee gives this movie a thumbs up..

The movie plot and star cast is pretty unconventional. Its about a introvert guy Karthik (Farhan Akhtar) who lacks self confidence, is miserable at his work and ignored by the girl whom he secretly loves. Till one day when his life changes due to a phone call. He gets a call from somebody claiming to be Karthik. From then on that voice guides him as a friend and also helps him get the love of his life Shonali (Deepika).

Atleast somebody is giving a try at making a original movie. From the looks of it, the movie looks well made and well told. Deepika is looking stunning as usual more so with her new chick haircut. Farhan is one talented dude who started with being a gifted director, script writer, oh almost forgot a singer and moved on to become this immensely talented but itense actor (Rock On!, Luck By Chance) He has natural flair for acting and is looking good in this movie.

Shankar-Eshan-Loy have given the audience, what has come to be expected from them - good music. I like all the songs, but 'Uff teri adaa' is a peppy number which makes me wanna shake a leg.

My Pyschic ability predicts we have a winner.
