Most violent gangster flick ever. So real action and weird sex seq'. Revenge. Unlike new-school, slow and surprising. Raw. A bit surreal.

Spanish. Who wud have thought Alfonso Cuarón's made a rom-com! Tat too a sensuous one. Comedy/Subtle satire/Crazy movie where nothing is what you expect or wish. True gem. A must-watch recommendation from me follows. "For those sick of life, love is the cure."

Kaminey media! Sarcasm, satire, everything u can think of a.k.a cliched. Wonderful performances. Universal theme. Oscar worthy? Doubt it. Reminded of (Uberto Pasolini's) 'Machan' and Mad City in parts. Way off-beat. All kudos to the debutantes.

From the Before Sunrise/Sunset guy! High school, pot, rock music, nerds, flirts and Ben Affleck as a teen. Very very real. In the genre of all those cult American high school college flicks of the 80s-90s like Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Breakfast Club, Pump Up The Volume etc.

Call me cheesy. Call me crap. Guzaarish is good. A precious piece of emotion, well executed on the celluloid, like never before in desi cinema. Inspired by The Sea Inside, (and bits of Prestige maybe, but not all movies on magicians have to be inspired by it right!) yes. Still to watch the movie unveil in the Bhansali-verse, its one mind blowing experience. Pure cinematic grandeur. The touch-of-class cinematography, saturated tones, aristocratic Brit costumes, the characters from another world, the obvious cleavage, the debuting music director (SLB himself), its all good. I might not watch it again or even care to sit through it again, like Saawariya. But I will remember it for the rest of my life and recommend it to the best of people. Hrithik***** at the best of his roles? I think so. Don't correct me. Ethan will teach you how it is to be locked-in, I twisted in my seat for some seconds. Now I understand why the folks from I Hate Luv Storys made fun of SLB as the over-rated, over-dramatic director; but also as someone who makes the best love stories. Sau gram zindagi...

I expected a sci-fi romance. Nothing science. All romance. Real life. Sensuous. Have to read the book. There has to be more of this feeling, where you wish to have a different matured version of the same person every time you fight with the same. Quote: "I never wanted to have anything in my life that I couldn't stand losing. But it's too late for that. It's not because you're beautiful and smart. I don't feel alone anymore. Will you marry me?"

Lovely cop, south-style action, funny/rude-one liners, satirical in parts. Fun ride. Nice plot, settings. Salman**** Sonakshi***** A bit slow here and there and has the warning written all over: NOT FOR THE SERIOUS FILM FOLK! Robin-hood Pandey is Dabangg!
Looohoong and boring in parts. Slick fights, cud hav been trimmed. Evry dialogue is a punch dialogue! Some of them, actually quotable. PrakashRaj***** Traitor-ish. Not destroying the movie's reputation, I used to be a fan of Amal Neerad stylishness. This is like an overdose. RGV wud be proud of his protege! Super stylish cam work. Looks like an sfx show reel in parts. Painfully slow.
