Peepli Live: Music Review

Aamir Khan is a pucca perfectionist. This time round he makes a movie touching the very Indian ground of Indian villages and who he chooses to compose and sing – Indian Ocean, along with Nageen Tanvir, Ram Sampath and Raghuvir Yadav. Here is a review of his album Peepli [Live].

The album starts with Indian Ocean’s Des Mera Rangrez ye baabu. The song is a typical Indian Ocean piece with their familiar voices and instruments. The song is a satirical one on India and the country’s system from top to bottom. Swanand Kirkire and Sanjeev Sharma write some good lyrics and words like ‘raai pahaad hai kankar shankar’ say a lot among them. Must listen. For all the music and words.

Aamir and Sharman to replace Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi?

Oops! It’s a well spread rumor, coming from comparatively reliable resources. So it’s almost a news. Rajkumar Hirani is planning to replace Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi with Aamir Khan and Sharman Joshi for the new Munna Bhai movie, Munna Bhai Chale America. The interesting thing is that the promos of the movie, showing Sanjay and Arshad of course, have been doing rounds on the Internet for years now.

If that happens, it will be worth seeing if Sharman Joshi makes as good a Circuit as Arshad. My guess is Sharman will have a new name instead of Circuit, but since it’s a Munna Bhai series, I don’t think Aamir will be called anything else. And while my opinion is that Sanjay Dutt any day makes the best ‘bhai’ in Bollywood, how Aamir does that role will have to be watched.

Whatever it is, I think the news is bad. For one, I do not want a new Munna Bhai, and secondly, I think Aamir should get ahead of Hirani’s comedy now and go on to do better films.

3 Idiots: Review

The review doesn’t have the story, but some little points about it.┬áIf you want to avoid spoilers completely, leave the parts appearing between <spoiler> and </spoiler> tags.

Do you know what is Aamir Khan paradox? Simple. It’s unfortunate that we make a movie on college students with a 44 year old Aamir Khan, not believing any young actor to be able to perform the role and wondering how a 44 year old will look 22 (actually even less, 17-18 if you talk of first year of engineering) but end of the day he performs there and fortunately, looking 22 or not, he manages to make himself fit in the role, not even making people think if the role demanded a younger actor, of the age of Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan.

Yes. 3 Idiots is a good film, though solely for entertainment. And this, too, belongs to Aamir Khan aka Rancho.

Perfect Spamming?

It’s almost sure it was spamming. And if it was, it was perfect.

Some time back I saw on Twitter than #AamirKhanLive was trending. I decided to take a look and found that Aamir Khan was actually live on a site called ustream and the link was there in all tweets. It surprised me a bit but I was more interested in watching the live chat and was able to catch the last few minutes on the site.
