Zindaggi Rocks (2006)
First half is awesome
I've just finished watching the first half of the movie and couldn't resist commenting on it. I laughed and smiled and clapped with his movie more than I have in the past 20 movies. I don't know why its 3.7 and don't know what the second half holds. But so far, Sushmita and Maushmai Chatterjee's work is mind-blowing. Their laughter and happiness comes across as so sincere and natural that you can't stop yourself on laughing with them, even if the dialogues are cheesy and stupid at times. Shiny Ahuja stands nowhere as compared to Sush. His eyes are expressive and voice full of sadness, but he fails to emanate the spark and doesn't bring the charisma that is required of this role. I'm sure this is one of those movies that I like and the world hates. I hope I continue to enjoy the movie and the second half is equally good.
The Prestige (2006)
The Prestige? The Pathetico sounds better.
A trick is only as good as its execution. That is certainly something the director, screenplay writer and the editor should have taken away from this movie. Seems like Chri Nolan decided to direct the movie simply because the novel was written by his namesake. After a wonderfully scripted and executed "Batman Begins", Nolan's latest offering comes as a huge disappointment. The premise of the movie, from the very onset, seems to be to dupe the audience into thinking something different when the truth is right in front of their eyes. The story tries hard to avert you from the truth by throwing twists and turns but once you know the secret it really is hard to appreciate all the Coloradon beauty and the precise sets.
Acting wise, Hugh Jackman is in top form and I can't wait to see him in The Fountain. Michael Caine comes across as the Jack Nicholson of his kind of roles - he will never go out of fashion. Bale and Johansson play their roles aptly. A tighter editing with a more hidden suspense would have made the movie better. Earnings of 14M for the opening day seem to say it all.
