Extreme Movie Review-Yeh Saali Zindagi (2011)

Yeh Saali Zindagi…

Hmm… So how do you feel if I start my review from the time when the director decided to make ‘Yeh Saali Zindagi’!! That’s what happened with me; it takes too long to start the “actual”: Yeh Saali Zindagi & till that time I had lost my interest.

The movie is a story of Arun (Irfan Khan) and his one sided love for Priti (Chitrangda Singh). Arun is a partner in financial firm who first saw Priti, a club singer, during his “work” and instantly fell for her.
He helped her in escaping some financial problems initially…and as usual tried to “get closer”. In the mean time he found her “busy” with the future son-in-law of some minister; but still you know: Love Is Blind, Deaf and Dumb… and more…

The story further includes a linked-story of Kuldeep (Arunoday Singh), a local gangster and his annoyed wife Shanti (Aditi Rao Hydari). Shanti wanted Kuldeep to stay away from his such gangsta-work or from her. With help of a police-man, Kuldeep decided to “do-it” one last time and leave the violence forever.

Kuldeep & gang had plans to kidnap minister’s daughter & son-in-law but endedup kidnapping Shanti & minister’s son-in-law.
The screen displays “The Night… It all went wrong”; when they kidnap them the movie actually starts (walking). Then the story goes on and on all about how Arun kept on helping Priti until the end and how Kuldeep gets through the business.
As per the natural “predictability” of Hindi movies, you can guess, it almost all went correct.
Except Arun takes a gun-shot by “diverted” bullet but survives in the end…

I’m not sure why people liked it but I cannot tolerate complete one hour of timepass before the actual movie starts. There is nothing in the movie which is worth. The movie is full of abusive language as the script demands and unpredictably favourable ends of problems.

A few quotes (unimpressive) from ‘Yeh Saali Zindagi’:
“Zindagi pe mera koi zor nahi ye to mereko samaz me aa gaya tha par kuldeep ko nahi”
“Ishq ka ek problem hai, agar ek ki lagi to dusre ki to lagni hi hai”

You’re good if you haven’t seen this; and you will get nothing by watching ‘Yeh Saali Zindagi’

Extreme Movie Review n Poll – Salman's Dabangg 2010

Friends, I saw movie dabangg and this is what I think about it.

Dabangg…It’s a bad movie… I don’t understand how come it became so “popular”…It’s typical South Indian styled mindless, over-’hero centric’, senseless and pitiful storied movie… I’ll prefer to watch a South Indian movie than this. I didn’t even like action!! Damn…

And it just cannot come into comparison with 3Idiot… If 3Idiots=10 then…Dabangg=1.

My suggestion do not waste your resources watching Dabangg.  For many of you this might be a late review but I thought it’s not worth to waste my time writing about this. Its an insult to review such a bundle of crap movie. Its just publicity that gave it so much earnings.

But now, I want to know how do you like it as a movie!! As I have found differences of opinion for this with my friends. They says they really felt it from their heart and they liked it. I couldn’t digest and wanted to know what you guys think.

Please use below poll and let me know how do you like the movie Dabangg !!

Extreme Movie Review: I hate Luv Stories-2010

I hate Luv Stories. No! it’s not a spell mistake, they have intentionally made it “LUV” as they love LOVE stories.
Since I heard the name, I started hating the movie and thinking about how ‘d one say:
I hate I hate love stories OR
I love I hate love stories… :)

I felt ‘I hate Luv Stories’ is filled with nuisance, I hate it. It bored me.
After a big though-process I got two things to learn from this movie. Read on the review.

I don’t understand why in every bollywood movie girls are so mindless and why the “first Boy-Friend” is so freaking nonsense.
Sonam Kapoor’s B.F. named Raj (chewed-off name) is a investment banker. I think he’s not successful in investment as he spends on white rose everyday; which is not a fruitful investment :) !
Okay, so they know each other since childhood or atleast quite long to understand each other and get married.
There are two annoyances that Sonam doesn’t like about him:
1. He gave her WHITE flower everyday. [Sonam like Red Colour]
2. He don’t drink on weekdays. [Sonam'd like to drink on weekdays]

[ad#ad-2-300x250]

These are the only reasons based on which this movie attempted to show “love”. what a crap!!

Now, Sonam is some professional stage/set-designer while Imran Khan was some kinda assistant. She got attracted and started liking him over her B.F.! Quite predictable nonsense from a girl.
Imran do not believe in love and just like to flirt and enjoy company and blah blah.
Due to work, they started talking closely with each other and Imran started giving her lousy tips about life and living! She liked it! I don’t understand why she didn’t like when Raj give her rose everyday, why “color” matters so much over “intentions” for her!? And girls looks good away from drinks, but Sonam like to drink daily! What a character!

There is some very poor or bad comedy attempts in the movie.
Whenever Imran sees Raj ( Sonam’s BF ), he used to praise “Nice Shirt” and Raj dumbly likes that. I tease my friend who showed me this movie.
Twice or thrice, when Imran and Sonam talks about some problem or question, the Car radio plays the word “sex” as an answer. Not atall funny. I rather laugh at poor attempt from script writer!

Also there are stolen scenes. “Dil Chahta Hai” when Imran hugs a waiter and even from “Rahena hai tere dil me”.
I don’t know if directer wanted to make a parody of those great movies, but if so he failed. Those scenes have increased my hatred towards ‘I Hate Luv Stories’.

So, I learnt 2 things from the movie ‘I Hate Luv Stories’

1. Movie conveyed, girls are really insane and untrustworthy. Just because Raj has two bad habits, which can be corrected by discussing, Sonam betrays him and goes with Imran!
A Red Color and Drink! Shame on girls! If you’re a girl you must not like this love story because the “base” is cheap.
If you’re a guy, understand the characteristics of girls described here.

2. Importantly I learnt: I shouldn’t have gone for ‘I Hate Luv Stories’.

There is one more catch, a friend of Imran on movie sets. He shows-up in the Ad of Sprite-”Sidhhi baat no bakwas”.
In the sprite-ads He keep doing nonsense and stand corrected.

Let me correct him now: “I hate luv story” is a poor, boring, annoying, nonsense movie. “Clear hai?” “Sidhhi baat no bakwas”

I hate ‘I hate Luv Stories’.

A User review-Apple IPhone-4: I

Techie nerds, geeks or even company reviews are quite interesting and have their importance but a “User Review” is something which you won’t like to ignore; you should not. IPhone-4 was a buzz word since it’s release and I decided to provide a user review for IPhone-4.

So here you go:
iPhone4, Worlds Thinnest Smart Phone. One of the finest product. Best Smart Phone ever shipped. and a lot promising stuff about it, said by Apple.

As an “End User” I agree that its really cool product with loads of features. Monetory wise, I have paid nice 200$ on it and would be paying extra 600$ over the period of 2years for data plan, in order to make this Smart Phone work as “Smart Phone”.

Like with all the smart phones available today, if you want smart phone you need to be dumb and pay extra bucks to your carrier to access Internet. If you don’t want data plan, they won’t sell you with contract!! Quite annoying, as there are bunch of apps available which doesn’t need Internet. Can’t I just use them on my “Smart Phone”?

Enough, I have started review with good amount of criticism. But I have bought iPhone 4 and I am only criticizing it, its just not good. I bought it means I does like it. My criticism is for my expectations from IPhone-4.

Now, Let me list down some great features:
Multi touch: WOW!!!! For the first time users, yeah it was a major break through with first generation iPhone. Now, many of smart phones have them. But yeah still its most important thing.

iPod: Great!!!! Awesome sound quality.. I don’t doubt Apple but I still have a question; Isn’t that sound quality due to its Super Cool head phones? And ultimate Apple allowed users to create a play list right from iPod s/w. I dont know, weather I should be happy for this or surprised they allowed it this late.
:)

Apps: Hundreds of thousands of Apps available, ranging from Games, Productivity, Social Networking, Business and so on. And good news is there are lot of free apps. If you dont consider going through iTunes or to-be specific Apple App Store, Its wonderful!! They will really make your phone smart.

Retina display: Again, WOW!!!! Its really nice. You can really see the difference if you compare 3GS and 4. I have done this. My friends have iPhone3 so I got to compare them.

Front Facing Camera: Kinda cool. It would be much cooler once we have apps accessing front facing camera and we can use chat tools to make video calls/chat.

I hope I would get some app soon (hopefully Skype, I would be free from sitting in front of my laptop and sit at one place.)

Let me clarify, I am not an Apple fanboy. I own one, so actually I should be writing much of it, but unfortunately as I get to use it

more I have started finding much of “TOBE MADE” improvements in it. I want more in my IPhone-4. I wish Mr.Jobs read this blog and add some features in next release.

I have bunch of things to say about which will ofcourse make IPhone-4 more than a perfact 10. I would have one separate post for it quite soon. Also, a comparison with my sweet SonyEricssion W550i music phone. My love for it has

increased after I started using iPhone. I guess Sony Erricson missed the bus, other wise they had real good features in walkman series phone.

Some of the iPhone still don’t have.. Surprised?? I will list them. Stay tuned…

To end the present user-review I will rate my IPhone-4, 7.5 / 10. A good product but lil’ improvement required.

Extreme Movie Review-Raavan 2010-Bonus Poster

I always admire Maniratnam … Never doubt his movies…
A R Raheman is a Gem – whole world admits… I simply love his music.
No one can doubt Gulzar’s capabilities and his poetry, I’m a fan…
But seems like this time the “Grahas” of these 3 great Indian personalities was not good this time…
About Raavan (2010) movie stars and casts,
Aishwariya… No question about her at all…
Abhishek… ammm… ok lets review the Raavan movie now.

Very first thing I will admit that I have not seen the movie. I don’t dare to. I heard a lot of critics giving poor rankings to this movie. I’m not a movie freak to waste my money on a movie with such a poor ratings.
In addition to this I do consider a few friends’ reviews as well. Mr. Pratik Kothari (RIL) turned a major demotivator for me to watch this movie.

I decided not to review this movie by personally experiancing horrifying RAAVAN but just by other’s reviews.
I believe it’s also good to learn from other’s mistakes, You don’t need to commit it.

A picture is worth a thousand words. So I acquired original poster of Raavan movie… And of it’s worth [ 3 hours + 100 to 200 bucks + (-mental harassment -disappointments -guilts) ]

Raavan-2010-Movie-Poster

I hope I made a right decision by not watching movie Raavan. If not please let me know why.
