A wednesday – I watched on Monday!



Watched this film on a Monday, wrote about it on a Tuesday and publishing it on ‘A Wednesday’ . Watched it in FUN Cinemas, Bangalore. 🙂

A sleek, cutting edge, fast, interesting story with two veteran actors namely Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher in the lead. A movie which conveys the thought of a common man on terrors he faces and taking an extra step further of what happens when the common man turns back to face realities he’s been adjusting to as a part of his daily life. A very well narrated film which keeps you at the edge of the seat till the very end of the film with the suspense. Keeps you glued with interesting dialogues used at the right intervals. The editing is surely an asset to this film which supported the narration and gave it the required pace. Jimmy Shergill’s performance was a ‘JOB WELL DONE’ I must say.


A Brave and Intelligent take on Terrorism from the point of view of the COMMON MAN.

Rating: 4/5




I watched this movie ” JUNO ” last night. This movie is an academy award winner 2007 for best story/screenplay. I liked it.

A sensitive issue narrated in a very intelligent, humorous, sleek and humanely manner with atitude. The protagonist was stupendous throughout the film. The characters were close to real life, with them acting just their age. Emotions expressed right till the end of the film.

This film is surely a lesson for aspiring filmmakers on how a narration can be effective keeping it simple. Getting the right shots, right expressions and right cuts right on time. This surely did teach me a few.

On a contrast, I am still wondering whether did it really deserve an Oscar ( if we consider it to be the best of awards). I care a damn, though.

A must watch film. 🙂

P.S. Film on the similar lines were made in our Bollywood too called KYA KEHNA but I feel there is a discrepancy in the narration and the exchange of emotions with the film from JUNO to this. I am guessing it is because of the over cast of drama, over-acting, unnecessary songs, dialogues, metaphors. The dish is well cooked only when there is a right amount of ingredients added at the right time.


RACE can be defined as an absolute waste of 2.5 hours of one’s precious time, which can be spent more worthwhile by even gazing at the stars. I really can’t tell you how bull shitted I was…… Same ol’ plot of betrayal….Bad script…. Acting not worth commenting on…..Adding to this was the theater, screwed up on the sound….. which made it even worse for me to sit through the film….they thought multiple twists would interest the audeince but  left the movie all twisted making it so difficult to untie at the end. Anil Kapoor – the joker in the film and extra bonus of Sameera Reddy…..dumb blonde secretary! music: Pritam’s style, nothing special! Well I should say that they had some good cars….. thats it! If you are at the end of joblessness, then you could maybe choose to watch this……

I plan to compensate for this bad film by watchin JUNO / VANTAGE POINT. I strongly recommend you to watch this, but not RACE- the DISGRACE

p.s: RACE: it an action thriller in Hindi from the BOLLYWOD starring Saif Ali Khan, Akshaye Khanna, Anil Kapoor, Sameera Reddy, Bipasha Basu & Katrina Kaif. (this is piece of info I remember about the film)
