Don't underestimate Shamitabh
Don't underestimate this movie as another Bhoothnath flick. The story is good, acting is better and Amitabh Bachchan is the best. This movie made me laugh and enjoy several moments that includes sarcasm and egoistic remarks shared between Dhanush and Amitabh. Some things did fall apart for me like the lessons given by Akshara in a primary school and the chemistry between Dhanush and Akshara. But I guess it's OK as per Bollywood standards. What I liked though, is that the movie also had an important appeal with it which makes us think about people who work behind the scenes and never get the recognition.The fact that you will see the names of the corresponding valets in the credits at end, establishes this further.
It also explains how ego can hurt us all if not controlled at the right time. Some of the sequences were simply excellent and succeeded in sparking the targeted emotions. The theme set for Dhanush as a die-hard movie fan, plays an important role in justifying some of his extreme actions. The child like playfulness, the fun loving personalities and the human bonding is portrayed very well.
I also felt that what Dhanush was trying throughout the movie while acting as dumb, Amit Ji pulled off right at the end with much more perfection.
Not just a chick flick
I watched this movie not just because my wife wanted to watch it, but also because it is a Disney Production. This fairytale has enough punches and turns to keep you interested and aligned with the story. It lives up to the expectations of audience by including a number of activities and events that are known to all of us. For instance, some of the hobbies and postures used by the protagonists are funny yet common.
I liked the set up and all the actors played their characters well. The USP of this movie for me is the fact that it connects with you in no time and then maintains it till the end.
2 States (2014)
Found it pleasant
If you have ever been in a situation where it get's difficult for you to understand your relatives, than you will be able to connect with the movie very easily.
The actors have performed a good role in bringing the characters to life. Even though I had read the book, I enjoyed the scenes as the visuals were able to keep me interested.

Blood Diamond (2006)
The inside story.
We often see the news on Television telling us about the situation in Africa. But how many of us can actually explain why this is happening? Why a certain group of people are being exploited again and again? Why so many people have to leave their homes and move to refugee camps.
This movie gives you a good look at the details and tells you a story that is often ignored.

Jack Reacher (2012)
A good investigation takes different perspectives
Starting with a professional shoot by a sniper, this movie revolves around an ex-army man Jack Reacher.
It lets you look at both the ends of the story and allows you to figure out the things slowly. There is reference made to the methods followed in the army and how they are quite different from that of the police. At the same time, it also refers to the hardships faced by soldiers and the effects of rigorous training on their lives.
It also makes you think about "freedom" and its meaning. Even if you are living in a democracy, can you be called "FREE"? How many of us are really free from debt, anxiety, stress, fear, failure, indignity and betrayal? Why do we have to keep trying to solve this conundrum?
Well, if you like movies that may exercise your brain a little, than go for this one. It also involves some good action sequences. Though they don't last long as it is often a soldier against a hooligan.
Body of Lies (2008)
Unravel the thread
Lies are what makes life complex.
In this case, the complexity is enough for your to think hard and think straight while you try to guess what's coming up next. The movie takes you through different stages of emotions. From the guilt of killing a man who came to you for rescue, to the courage of putting your life on risk for someone you hardly know.
It has got some scenes that will connect with you right away and help you understand the spy world further. For instance planting of a spy can be done anywhere ranging from a dining table to a terrorist station.
DiCaprio has given a magnificent performance and has been natural through out. The thwarting and frustration demonstrated by him, makes you feel the warmth of the situation.
Go watch this one, if you are in for lies.
Everything Must Go (2010)
What is primacy?
This movie made me think about the primacy of things that we deem so important, and relations that we often take for granted.
Are we merely living to generate assets and maintain relations? Do we have the liberty to point at someone and say, "He is not normal!"? Are we living with compassion or do we get frustrated over little things? Do we have enough patience to listen to our loved ones? When everything is lost and we are left with nothing, is it really the end of it?
Watch this movie and you may be able to answer these for yourself.
"Making friends is not always easy, but the ones that you have, make sure that you can trust them with your heart." "Maintaining relations requires revisions; so make the things straight as many times as it is required." "Understand the difference between giving up and letting go!"
If Only (2004)
Do you hide your love?
Scientists have proved that our brain creates new cells whenever we create a memory. This movie will tell you everything in the beginning but will keep you on your toes up till the end. If you already knew what is going to happen tomorrow, would you try changing some things; or would you not play with your fate and just let it be?
It not only makes you think about your deja vu experiences but also leads your mind in the direction of love. The love that we seldom express and try to keep hidden.
After watching this movie, you are certainly going to understand love more. You may or may have not fallen in romantic love, but the love for your parents, friends or even a class-mate can be felt and expressed better if you grasp this movie in the right manner.
Go tell your loved ones what they mean to you.
Do Dooni Chaar (2010)
Simple yet educational family drama
This movie has depicted the lifestyle of a lower middle class Indian family in the most appropriate and comical way.
Teachers do not get as much salary as engineers or doctors, but they shape the future because they decide what our coming generation is going to be like. Of course with the increasing popularity of massive open online courses, a teacher's relation with his students on a personal level is decreasing day by day. But that does not mean, that teachers are not going to be important. Something very similar to this is proved in this movie.
It showcases a lot of things that can go wrong in a family. From quarrels to sulks, from shouts to tears, from over-confidence to regret, you will get to experience almost all the emotions.
Go enjoy these little moments of joy!
