This should not be a good movie, let alone a Great movie. And yet, it is. Largely because of Amitabh. His performance is so good, I think it inspired everyone else to raise up to his level, from director to writer to co-stars.Continue reading
We don’t have to forget Katrina either! One of her best early performances was, coincidentally, in an Amitabh movie. No, not Boom.Continue reading
I already put up the no spoilers review, in case you want to watch the film fresh. This is your SPOILER option, in case you don’t care about going in fresh and want the spoilers. Oh, and this is also one of those reviews where I get really angry and mean. If you enjoy it when I do that.
I did it! A two movie week! So I was able to see both the northern and southern big Diwali release. And although I really didn’t like the Hindi film, I didn’t like the Tamil film EVEN MORE.
Such a good movie! I always forget, and then I watch it again and it is even better than I remembered. Abhishek is perfect, Amitabh is perfect, Katrina is dubbed, it’s just what you want!
Well, this is awkward. I have almost no qualifications to write this post. But on the other hand, I started writing about Sarkar and realized half that post was just a discussion of the film that RGV used as a jumping off point. And I already dumped paragraphs and paragraphs on it before I could start talking about Raajneeti. And I can feel the same thing coming with Chekka Chivantha Vaanam. So, I guess I have to do this. Write a post just so I have something I can refer back to in all those other posts rather than starting from scratch each time. Even though I am far from the best person to write about this film.
Nothing terribly surprising in box office, so I am mashing it in with a couple of other stories as well.
