On A Movie Spree…

Uh, finally writing a movie post. I watched the following movies:

Summer of 2007: An unheard movie directed by first-time director Suhail Tartari. But it was a meaningful movie, not your usual masala type genre. It deals with farmer suicides in India. A group of medical students come face to face with the stark reality of poverty amongst farmers. Movie tries to advocate micro-credit system as one of solutions to help the farmers.

I didn’t find the movie boring. I felt that the intention of the director was honest. With a better known cast and tight script, movie could have made a splash. Some known actors from the movie were Gul Panag, Ashutosh Rana and Sikander Kher. Liju, not so long ago, wrote in his snippet review, that Sikander Kher looked like an ape. I agree with him. Kher could do with some grooming tips before trying to play ubercool, hot-headed boy from a Mumbai medical college.

Rating: 2.5/5, solely for story and intention. I would recommend as it has important issue at core.

Dark Knight: I missed first 45 minutes of the movie because I was stuck in a bad Delhi jam on a rainy day, just 5 minutes away from the theatre. You have already heard by now how fabulous was this movie.

The Joker

The Joker

It portrays the quintessential battle of evil against good, of the sinister evil that resides amongst all of us. Movie has a legendary portrayal of Batman’s nemesis, Joker, by late Heath Ledger. There was no resemblance so much that my friend refused to believe that this was the handsome guy who played Casanova in the movie by same name.

Where a Bollywood movie usually ends, this Batman actually begins with renewed vigour and worthy twists. I was watching this sinister movie on a late evening with sinister weather outside (rains and also jams). I was distracted with worry how I will reach my home, 30 kms away. So I am sure I will watch this movie again.

This Batman sequel was also in news with superstitious reports of how DK cast was jinxed.

Rating: 4/5
