Bloody thriller! Creepy all the way. Beautiful twists, violent, but realistic like hell. Mixed emotions. Reminded of Funny Games.

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?"
