The movie that earned Kashyap fame!
Dev D is a modern-day interpretation of the classic novel "Devdas" by Sarat Chandra. Dev (Abhay Deol), Paro (Mahi Gill) and Chanda (Kalki Koechlin) of Dev D reflect the sensibilities, conflicts aggression, and independence. Free thought, exuberance and recklessness of the youth of today. A generation that is jammed between eastern roots and western sensibilities. Dev D is set in the rustic and colorful Punjab and also explores the dingy, morbid, dark underbelly of Delhi. From sprawling mustard fields to a riot of neon. Now we have come through various versions of the novel "Devdas", but "Dev. D" is way different than all the others. It's not actually the remake of Devdas, yet it can be said as it has been just inspired by it. There are minor similarities yet the characters are similar in a way. The new Devdas likes to have his vodka with Coke, asks Paro for some nude pictures of herself, chats with Paro through IM, likes to have sex, smokes even during pissing after waking up in the morning & does other various stuffs according to the current trend of Indian Youth. There are so many reasons why "Dev. D" strikes hard on it's viewers. It's a coming of an age cinema of Bollywood. Bollywood never did witnessed any stuff like Dev. D ever before. The soul of the movie lies within it's characters, specially "Dev.D" along with Paro, Chanda & Chunni. The movie also depicts Delhi in a superior way. Anurag Kashyap always trying to do something new & creative with each of his movies. First it was Black Friday, which portrayed some stunning reality behind the blasts in Mumbai in the year 1993, which also made it highly controversial & then it was "No Smoking", which was an attempt of a cult movie, though it failed to express the real message behind the movie. Anurag Kashyap this time does it in a Tarantino style. A love story in a Tarantino way. Now that's something really innovative! He gives an extra-ordinary direction, with keeping in mind to entertain the viewers. The humor of the movie with it's witty one liners keeps the viewers hooked during the first half. Though the second half looses it's momentum a bit, the movie still strikes in a powerful way. Now if we talk about the performances, Abhay Deol is one of the most talented actors in Bollywood. Not only he performs well, but what he did in this movie is called "Class Act". Top class act by Abhay. Also the performances by the two of the new-comers is refreshing & amazing. Adding to all the factors above is the music or the score of the movie. That's something different yet again for Bollywood. The track "Emotional Atyachar" is already famous. But the best tracks of the movie are "Ek Hulchul Si" & "Emotional Atyachar (Rock Version)". It would simply blow the mind of the lovers of rock music. Excellent songs & score by Amit Trivedi. The unusual cinematography of the movie gives the movie a different look, yet a dark look. Dev.D is a fantastic movie to be made in Bollywood history. A never before experienced love story with sex, drugs, drinks & lot many stuffs. A classic love story with fantastic performance by Abhay Deol.
Big Stan (2007)
A very good comedy!
Rob Schneider, the one who makes you laugh always, is here & also, this one is his directorial debut. So how well did Schneider made the movie. The movie actually will amaze the audience, Schneider made a great directorial debut with this well entertaining movie. So, once upon a time, there lived a tiny, insecure man named Stan (Schneider) , along with her wife (Jennifer Morison), who learned the only way he could make his enormous ego feel comfortable in his teeny, tiny body was to embarrass, humiliate, and torture others. He thought he was a master of disguise, fooling others into believing he was a big man. So, Stan is being sent to prison for fraud and the prospect terrifies him. As he fears he would be raped by the gay prison-mates. Seeking help from a mysterious martial arts guru known only as The Master (Carradine), Stan transforms himself into a Kung Fu expert, ultimately bringing the warring prison gangs together and establishing peace within its walls. The movie changes its path in the second half & you will feel as if you are into a different movie. But that is not a backdrop of the movie, it actually was the most interesting part. The second half deals with a comic prison story. Rob Schneider made the film very entertaining, as the story is very interesting. He also makes you laugh always. He is superb. Morison was so sweet in the movie & you wish that you had a same kind of a wife. There are loads of funny moments, the practice sessions, the fights & changes in the prison (it is so funny) & lots more. A well made feel good comedy, which would surely entertain you & make you laugh. Hilarious comedy by Schneider. Do watch it.
