MY Most Awaited Movies

Ask me about the three most awaited movies for the next 3 months and you won’t find a Khan in them. They will belong to Ranbir Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan and Naseeruddin Shah, with Arshad Warsi.

Either you’d be shocked by that, or you would have guessed the movies I am talking about.

Well, for now, my most awaited movies include Rocket Singh Salesman of the Year, Ishqiya, and Teen Patti. Followed by Rann and My Name is Khan, the latter more because of Kajol than SRK.

Critics Failing it, Radio looks like a hit

“I’ve started respecting Himesh Reshammiya. People said he had voice of an ass and he changed it. People said he can’t act and now he’s acted too.”

This was the first input I got on Radio.

No. Do not expect Radio to be a wonderful 4-5 star or even a 3-star rated movie, but Himesh Reshammiya HAS ACTED even according to the critics who give him a one and half star.

Reviewing a reviewer

I don’t know whether I should be doing this, but since I am a critic, or at least aspiring to be one, I think it’s good if I let my opinion go out. And this is what I am doing here.

In the past few days my blog has got some regular visitors who come to my blog every weekend. Some of these are people who know me personally or are in contact through social networking (read Twitter). And from some of these people I got praise for my reviews I never expected. Reason: Not just my reviews were good, but people hated some other reviewers reviews and so they came to my blog for a balanced opinion.

Well, seems like I’m getting into an oh-my-god-I’m-such-a-well-behaved-god-fearing-never-bitching-about-others-guy mode. So I come to the point now.

Movies to Watch For

Moviecalendarissomethingthat always keeps on changing. For example, Pritish Nandy Communications and Percept were in doubt whether they should put their award winning movie Raat Gayi Baat Gayi for releasing on 11th December or not as there were Ishqiya, Dulha Mil Gaya, and Rocket Singh – Salesman of the Year releasing on the same date. After much discussion, they shifted their movie by one week to 18th November, and now Ishqiya and Dulha Mil Gaya have been moved to January, leaving Rocket Singh alone for a free ride in the sky.
