The first ten mins of the movie pan out like a Sergio Leone classic ( no dialogues ) and warms us up to an epic tale of a mans quest for oil , his greed , his hatred and the tragic tale that follows . This is yet another movie set in Texas (no country and this movie were shot in the same locations) and it hits you hard with the powerhouse performance by Daniel Day Lewis, the haunting music and his gut wrenching journey. He is my bet for the Best actor Oscar this year.

You could call it just another movie. Or it could be a telling spoof of all Bollywoodisms.
Farah Khan strings together all the clichés of Bollywood. And then very happily pokes fun at all of them. And when you have Shah Rukh Khan doing the honors, it ends up like a roller coaster on steroids. Giving him company is Suresh Talpade (Iqbal), Arjun Rampal, Kirron Kher and Deepika Padukone.
Deepika Padukone? Ah, she is a mighty fine lassie. Watch out for her. My IMDb score: 7

18 short stories, about 6 minutes each. Each story is interesting, and pulls you in to the point where you want more, and then abruptly, the directors change, the actors change, the mood changes, and you're disoriented and pushed into another movie hall. Bizzare feeling, but still exciting. Loved the story of the american woman in paris, oscar wilde's grave and the blind man's love.
Verdict: Short stories
My IMDB Rating: 7

Love Bruce Willis. And proved it by watching the very inane die hard. Decent action, but punching a few codes onto a screen in absolute panic by a 17 year old with bad fashion sense doesn’t make a good internet caper.
Verdict: Watch only if you are a John McLane fan
My IMDB Rating: 3
Verdict: Partner is better
My IMDB Rating: 1
Verdict: Watch it if you have nothing else to do.

Its amazing to see how Vishal Bhardwaj switches between Shakespearean tragedies and movies with kids as central characters with such ease.Pankaj Kapoor (isn't he underrated?) is outstanding and the kid is not the typical precocious on screen kids we are used to. Watch it on DVD, pity that the movie didn't run in the theatres for more than a week after having a 2 year delayed release.

SRK - drool worthy dish. hotbod meets actor - minus ham plus stubble. let me say it again - hot! oh! so hot!
KABIR KHAN AND THE HOCKEY TEAM & THE FILM - a refreshing & 'tight' film. great in spirit specially when its highlighting and celebrating that game called hockey! the casting is excpetionally good (think bollywood standards) and so is mr khan's wardrobe (again oh! so hot!). let the foxes cry over sour grapes ("it's srk's version of lagaan, so what's new??") alone - the film's euphoric and made me whistle, hoot and smile :)

Nice. Sweet (Even though the film title denies it). Non pretentious.
And oh, very advertising. Lots of witty one liners. And product placements craftily put.
Amitabh is cool. And so is Tabu.
Just one question to all advertising people here. Considering it’s Balki’s film, do employees of O&M need special permission to watch this film?My IMdb rating: 6
Lots of guns. Lots of action. Lots of gore.
1.The script: It’s stillborn.
2. The songs: Did someone forget to tell the music director that song equals melody?
3. Lyrics: I couldn’t remember a single line 30 seconds after the songs.
4. Acting: Viviek Oberoi acts like Vivek Oberoi. Amitabh acts like Amitabh. Suniel Shetty acts like Suniel Shetty. Sanjay Dutt acts like Sanjay Dutt. In short, everybody tries to act like a star. The only exception is Tushar Kapoor who tries very hard to act like a hood. (Has he even reached the age when he can shave?)
5. Originality: I have never seen a movie in which the ‘inspired from’ factor is so high. American History X and Reservoir Dogs are this director’s favourites.
It’s a pity the director didn’t get shot at in the crossfire. Then again, maybe not. For, that would be mercy killing.

Bachchan rocks. I haven't liked him as much in any recent film of his as I have in Cheeni Kum. Tabu is beautiful, and effortless, and their chemistry is infectious. The first half is filled with fresh witty dialogues. In the second half, the director snoozes off, and lets monkeys stand in for him.
Verdict: I'm in love with a 64 year old man.
My IMDB Rating: 5
