Chennai Express (2013)
5 Things I learned after watching Chennai Express:
1) You can board an Indian Railways train with a large cache of Knives, Sickles and firearms, undetected.
2) Your brand new Nokia Lumia phone is tougher than Kevlar Reinforced steel, and can survive a fall from a fast moving train onto granite stones on the track, without so much of a scratch.
3) A slash from a sickle is enough to take down a 1-ton plus SUV.
4) A tamilian girl speaks Hindi with a distinct Bangalore Shivajinagar accent.
5) In the south, every rowdy has 59-inch biceps, and carries a 2-meter long sickle.

The Attacks of 26/11 (2013)
Raw, unapologetic and sends a very strong message
If you are an Indian, then watching this movie is guaranteed to evoke very strong reactions in you. As I have felt.
Watching our people get massacred like flies by a handful of gunmen, is sure to make you sit up and react.
This movie had a more profound impact on me, than the actual news footage of 26/11 as the events unfolded on 2008.
I think RGV has done an exemplary job in recreating the entire carnage on screen, and make us sit up and notice of how vulnerable our cities really are.
I wish it evokes similar reactions on politicians, so that they take better steps to secure our cities.
Hats off to you RGV.
Gangs of Wasseypur (2012)
No less than Hollywood's best.
The opening scene drives the nail in, and pushes it out through the other side. Unflinchingly real and gutsy, gives us a rare glimpse into the gang wars of the rural heartland. Anurag Kashyap has shown us exactly what he intended to, without worrying much about critics, censors, reviews etc. Independent filmmaking at its best. Characters look like they've been recruited, right out of the gangs themselves. However, it's not a movie for those accustomed to KJo, Sugar coated and eye candy movies. Dialogues are coarse, but apt. Not a movie that you would want to watch with your mom. Watch is alone or with a film buff.
This movie is no less that any Tarantino or Coen Bro's movies. If you know what I mean.
Dev D truly shines.
I had watched Anurag Kashyap's earlier works like 'No Smoking', 'Black Friday', 'Gangs of Wasseypur 1', etc.
However, nothing prepared me for the ride that was Dev D.
I must admit that I am rather late on watching this movie, that was released in 2009. However I am glad that I did.
This movie is no less, than any movie made by any of Hollywood's top Directors.
It has rebooted the entire Devdas Genre, and given it an entirely new perspective. Shahrukh Khan's Devdas, just simply pales in comparison.
The visuals in this movie are completely breathtaking. Raw as well as stylish. Completely blows your mind. Esp the shoots around Paharganj in Delhi. Plus the dizzy camera-work, that very often show a head-on perspective of Dev. The background score is also commendable. A decade ago, movies such as these were unthinkable.
Dev D surely deserves to be listed on IMDb top 250.
