Mere Brother Ki Dulhan!

Sep 11th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Review

This is a movie which has Katrina Kaif as the lead star. That, by itself says a lot about the movie. Going by her roles in the past films, it would not be too wrong to infer that Katrina Kaif’s main role in any movie is not to act, but to be cute on screen. She does that in this movie too, and does it better than ever before. Imran Khan and Ali Zafar, the male protagonists in the movie, seem to have caught Katrina Kaif’s affliction. Their focus in the movie is on being cute, rather than acting well.

The First Viral Campaign

Without the presence of any kind of media they made the Quit India movement go viral way back in 1942. Within days the whole nation was aware of the movement. There was a huge army of volunteers who would paint the messages on the walls in the dark of the night, even in the most distant villages of the country.

In one episode it was told that drinking cattle’s milk coming from commercial dairy farms is cruelty towards their new born. For someone like me, for whom gulping down a glassful of milk every morning was the hardest part of the day, this episode was like manna from heaven. I declared that I would give up milk forever, of course for serving a greater good. But my mom was too smart to fall for these shenanigans. She said if I gave up milk, I would have to give up all the byproducts like butter, cheese, curd and chocolates. I dropped my partially pasteurized… I mean half-baked ideology in a heartbeat.

That Girl in Yellow Boots – A Review!

Sep 4th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Review

The movie is a time-slice of Ruth’s life where she struggles hard, both as a foreigner in native land and as someone who is lonely and longs for unconditional love. How she manages her job, her eccentric boyfriend, the gangster who comes out of nowhere, the cop, the regular customer who cares for her, and the passport office officials makes up the rest of the movie. Kalki’s attempts to learn Hindi and her sustained efforts to look for her father seem genuine and you can’t help but sympathize with this girl in yellow boots.
