Entertaining Ghajini is an entertainer.

It has loads of action,comedy,drama and romance which makes it a family packed entertainer.

But the problem is that the movie is long,it could have been trimmed 15-20 minutes and the movie even gets violent at times,which could have been shortened.

Heyy Babyy (2007)

Bad Heyy Babyy is painful to watch.

Even the dialogs are disgusting and offensive at times.

It is like an ambitious project which has gone awfully awry.

Direction by Sajid Khan is bad.

The music is good.

Performance-Akshay Kumar is very good.Ritesh Deshmukh is funny.Fardeen Khan is good too.Vidya Balan is bad.Boman Irani overacts.The baby irritates.

Sholay (1975)

All Time Favorite Sholay,directed by Ramesh Sippy is an all time favorite of mine.

It has a story,it has great actors,good music,memorable scenes,superb dialogs.What else would you want? There is not even a single scene which puts you off.

Overall Sholay is a Classic.

Aa Dekhen Zara (2009)

Bad Thriller Aa Dekhen Zara,could be named as one of Bollywood's worst thrillers.

The screenplay is shoddy.The song "Mohabbat Aap Se"looks forced.Sophie's track was wasted.

There are only one or two scenes which seem captivating.

Bipasha Basu is the only plus point of this bland movie.She looks sizzling.

Direction by Jahangir Surti is bad.

The music is okay.

Performance wise-The writers give minimum scope to both the leads.Rahul Dev is bad,Sophie is wasted.

Overall Aa Dekhen Zara is bad.

All the Best: Fun Begins (2009)

Plan (2004)

Good story gone awry Plan,ends up being awry.

The story is very good.

Wish if the screenplay was watertight,but sadly the screenplay is loose.

A lot of talented actors are wasted.There are even some unwanted tracks which come as gap fillers.

Direction by Hriday Shetty is bad.

The music is third-grade Performance wise-Sanjay Dutt steals the show.But he is introduced so late.Dino Morea,Sanjay Suri,Rohit Roy and Bikram Saluja get limited scope.Priyanka Chopra and Mahesh Manjrekar are wasted.

Overall Plan is bad.

Udaan (2010)

Great Udaan,is a amazing in terms of film-making.Directed by Vikramaditya Motwane,this movie offers something new,something fresh,something entertaining.

The movie's story is based on real life incidents which has been shown very well.

The screenplay is excellently written by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane.

Vikramaditya Motwane deserves a standing ovation for his work.Its truly masterpiece.

The dialogs are excellent.

Performance wise-Rajat Barmecha is excellent.Ronit Roy is outstanding.Ram Kapoor too is very good.The kid,Ayan Boradia is cute and acts well.

Overall Udaan deserves a watch.

Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji (2011)

Bland Madhur Bhandarkar's Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji is dull.

The movie has an interesting story.What goes wrong is the characterization and its screenplay.

Its sad to know that this film was directed by Madhur Bhandarkar.The movie's first half is good,providing some laughs.The second hour is bad,which makes the movie worse.

Madhur Bhandarkar's direction is strictly okay.

The music is average.

Performance wise-Ajay Devgn is good.Omi Vaidya is a shock.Was he the one who played Chatur Ramalingam in 3 Idiots?He is bad.Emraan Hashmi is first rate. Shazahn is bad.Shruti Hassan is okay.Shraddha is bad.Tisca Chopra excels. Mukesh Tiwari is wasted.Manoj Joshi hams.

Overall Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji is a disappointment.

Lafangey Parindey (2010)

Predictable Lafangey Parindey,directed by Pradeep Sarkar is boring.

The storyline is predictable.

Even otherwise the movie has nothing new to offer.

The climax is good.

Pradeep Sarkar is a letdown.

The music is good.

Performance wise-Neil Nitin Mukesh is good.Deepika Padukone is very good.Piyush Mishra is first rate.Manish Chaudhary is good.Kay Kay Menon appears in a special appearance.

Overall Lafangey Parindey,is a letdown.

Alvin and the Chipmunks (2007)

Cute Alvin and the Chipmunks,is cute.

I do not know why the critics have trashed this movie.

Yeah,I agree that the story is poor and even the screenplay is erratic but its still endeavoring fair.

The screenplay acts as a major villain.

Tim Hill does a good job.

The music is very good.

Performance wise-Jason Lee is excellent.David Cross is also good.The 3 Chipmunks rock.

Overall Alvin and The Chipmunks could be watched on television.

No Entry (2005)

Funny No Entry,directed by Anees Bazmme was one of the biggest hits in 2005.

The film promises big laughs.The best thing is that it promises laughs scene by scene.

There are just some few scenes which make you feel ho-hum.But overall the film is a laugh riot.

Direction by Anees Bazmee is very good.

Music is okay.

Dialogs are very good.

Performance wise-Its Anil Kapoor who rocks the show.His comic timing is just so amazing.Salman Khan is good.Fardeen Khan is also funny. Among the 4 ladies.Lara Dutta is the best.Followed by Celina Jaitely who has screen presence.Bipasha Basu looks gorgeous.Esha Deol is weak. Boman Irani is wasted.

Overall No Entry,deserves a watch.

Yuvvraaj (2008)

Yuvvraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaj Yuvvraaj,directed by Subhash Ghai is a amazingly painful.

It has a message,but it takes so long to reach the final point.Subhash Ghai extends the movie so much with many unwanted scenes. Eg:-The family of Salman Khan.They are so ironically dreadful.Or even the scenes involving Salman and Boman(Katrina's father) were wasted.

Even the songs,though shot lavishly are so long.They bore you.

Subhash Ghai's direction is dreadful.

The music is a bore.

The cinematographer excels.The DoP too excels.

Performance wise-Salman Khan looks disinterested.Anil Kapoor blows your mind off.Katrina Kaif only smiles.Zayed Khan needs improvement.Boman Irani irritates.Anjaan Srivastav and the rest for the family are purely wasted.Mithun Chakraborty is fine in an special appearance.

Overall Yuvvraaj has style but lacks substance.

Up (2009)

Funny,Heartwarming,Lovely.Pixar's best film Up,directed by Pete Doctor is truly amazing.Its one of the best animated movies I have ever witnessed.It has a message which is truly convincing.

The movie wraps everything in those 96 minutes.The movie is funny yet heartwarming.But the overall outcome is Lovely.

No wonder this movie has won critical acclaim as well as accolades.

The 3D effects are excellent.

This is Pixar's best film.

Pete Doctor does an excellent job.

Overall Up is an excellent movie for both adults as well as children.

Avatar (2009)

Wonderful James Cameron's Avatar,is an amazing piece.

The technical effects were just mind blowing.

But wish if Cameron had concentrated on the story.

Anyways,Cameron should be appreciated for making a movie like this which audience would have never expected.

Special to the Cinematagropher who does a great job Performance wise-Sam Worthington is excellent.Zoe Saldana is excellent too.The rest are very good.

Overall Avatar is impressive on a technical level than a piece of storytelling.

2012 (2009)

Rocks 2012,is an mind blowing piece.

Roland Emmerich known for making movies related to disasters does an excellent job.

The breaking of buildings,the separation of the highway and the whole view of New York City in vain has been shot excellently.

The only thing which I did not like was is its script.Its shoddy.

Roland Emmerich does an excellent job.Kudos to him.

The cinematographer does a very good job.

Performance wise-John Cusack is excellent.Amanda Peet is good.

Overall 2012 deserves a watch.

Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag (2007)

A landmark in making flop movies. RGV Ki Aag,is purely bad.

The movie is like any B or C grade movie.

It is pity that this is a remake of classic Sholay.

RGV's style of film-making 1.)Uneven angles 2.)Dark theme 3.)Loud background score. Irritates here.

RGV stinks.

Music stinks.

Performance wise-Amitabh Bachchan looks like a joker of a circus and acts like one.It is pity to see this actor playing such type of roles.Mohanlal is topnotch,but his Malayalam accent should be improved.Ajay Devgan sucks.Nisha Kothari deserves the award Best Hamming Actress of The Year 2007.This was the first and unfortunately last debut of Prashant Raj.Sushmita Sen bores.Rajpal Yadav irritates. Sushant Singh is okay.

Overall RGV Ki Aag stinks.

De Dana Dan (2009)

A Dead Comedy followed by an overlong climax De Dana Dan is a dead comedy.

All the actors just shout,shout and shout in the movie which instead of a comedy makes it look like a tragedy.

Priyadarshan's direction is bad.The climax is weak The music is weak Dialogs are very good.

Performance-De Dana Dan has India's best comedians,but there are only few who stand out.They are in this order-Johnny Lever,Vikram Gokhale and Asrani .Akshay Kumar too is good.Suniel Shetty is okay.Katrina Kaif and Sameera Reddy are forgettable.Neha Dhupia is fine.Chunky Pandey is also good.Archana Puran Singh,Paresh Rawal,Rajpal Yadav,Shakti Kapoor,Sharat Saxena,Tinnu Anand & Manoj Joshi shout.

Overall De Dana Dan is boring.

Dhamaal (2007)

One of the best comedies Inder Kumar's Dhamaal,is on of the cleanest and funniest movies to come out in Bollywood.

Nowadays,we hardly get to see squeaky clean comedy movies.

Dhamaal is a little gem which deserves a watch.This movie was not promoted heavily but soon gain popularity among people and became a super hit at box-office.

Direction by Inder Kumar is very good.

Dialogs are very good.

Performance wise-Javed Jaffery tops with an enthralling performance.Ritesh Deshmukh is very good.Ditto for Arshad Warsi and Ashish Chaudhary.Sanjay Dutt too is excellent.Asrani and Sanjay Mishra are hilarious.Prem Chopra is good in a brief role.

Overall Dhamaal deserves more than once viewing because it is one of those comedies which we hardly get.

Blue (2009)

Fool Blue,one of the most anticipated movies of 2009 is a foolish movie.

Being told Bollywood's most expensive film the film turns out to be so cheap.

Anthony D Souza,the director wasted a terrific opportunity.His direction is average.

The music is by A.R Rahman,is surprisingly bad.

What makes me give this film 2 stars is mainly for its the stunts and photography.

Performance wise-Sanjay Dutt is overweight.Akshay Kumar is okay.Zayed Khan needs a crash course for acting.shows you how to wear the two-piece, and look like a goddess of the sea.Katrina Kaif comes in the very start,leaves off and comes in the climax.Thats it.Rhaul Dev is half baked.Kabir Bedi has no dialogs.

Overall Blue is a fool

Sagar Alias Jackie: Reloaded (2009)

All style no substance Sagar alias Jackie,known to be the stylish movie in Malayalam is awful.

It is rich in style.No doubts. But lacks substance.

The same year we had a Bollwood movie released named Blue which was high on style but lacked story.

Direction by Amal Neerad is bad.

The music is bad.Barring the title track.

Cinematography is excellent.

Performance wise-Superstar Mohanlal rocks!The baddies are bad,while Shobhana and Bhavana are okay.We get even to see Pranav Mohanlal,son of Mohanlal.

Overall Sagar alias Jackie is bad.

New York (2009)

One of the Best of 2009 New York is based on the life of Indians in New York City after 9/11. Directed by Kabir Khan,the movie was the second hit of 2009. I was shocked to know that a movie like New York and a director like Kabir Khan were not nominated in any of the Awards?

Anyways New York is must watch.

Direction by Kabir Khan is excellent.

Kabir Khan and Sandeep Srivastava rock!For writing a script like this.

The music is good.

Performance wise-John and Neil are excellent.They are dynamites.Irrfan Khan is absolute surprise.He is superb!Katrina Kaif for the first time acts very well!

Overall New York gets Two Thumbs Up

Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. (2003)

Munnabhai Rocks Munnabhai M.B.B.S is truly amazing. It is so very entertaining. The prime reasons why it works is for the Mumbai language used in the movie.Its so lovely. Rajkumar Hirani's direction is just great.As a first time director he deserves a pat on his back. The music is quite good Performsnce wise-Sanjay Dutt is truly a star.He is just so excellent.Arshad Warsi playing the role of Circuit is stupendous.His comic timing is superb.Boman Irani is very good playing the role of Dr Asthana.Jimmy Shergill is also good.Sunil Dutt though he has a very small appearance he touches your heart.Note the the scene of jaadu ki jhappi and that will surely make you cry.Gracy Singh is lovable as Dr Suman aka Chinki.

Overall Munnabhai M.B.B.S is fantastic

Chandni Chowk to China (2009)

Better have Chinese Noodles Chandni Chowk to China,fails big time and how? 1.)The film's script is shoddy.The 1st hour is okay but it is the 2nd hour that plays as the villain.

2.)Considering the fact that the movie is shot in China,the audience just gets to see the Great Wall Of China.

3.)The film's promos promises some big laughter.Sadly,the viewer laughs for just 1 or 2 jokes.

4.)The action sequences are bland.

These are the few things which makes CC2C a disaster.The promos looked terrific and the movie turns out to be terrible.

Performance wise-Aakshay is good.Deepika also acts well.Mithun Chakraborty,Ranvir Shorey,Gordon Liu are bland.

Overall CC2C is a washout.
