On this blog I frequently comment on "zara hat ke" movies (off beat/art movies) as I believe they truly portray Zindagi Ki Diary!
I went to see new Hollywood flick "127 hours". It is a true story (book = Between a Rock and a Hard Place) of an avid but little careless (la-ubali) hiker. Incident happened in April 2003 in mountains of Utah when his right arm get stuck/crush between 2 rocks. In next 127 hours while fighting to save his life with one packet of snack and only 400 ml of water he re-examines his life. Near death his biggest regret is ignoring his loved ones on small matters like not returning his mom phone calls, not telling anyone where he is going, fighting with his girlfriend, escaping his sister's wedding. Also he cherish small moments he spent with his family and friends. It gives us message that - at the end nothing matters except moments spend with loved ones! On side note this movie is produced by famous British director Donny Boyle of Slumdog Millionaire fame. And so music is by AR Rehman. (Trailer here)
1. If you are still young (in heart) and like light romantic comedy - don't miss "love and other drugs". Full paisa wasool film. (Caution - huge sexual content/nudity). (Trailere here)
2. Another comedy "Due Date" is also great! Just fun! Robert Downey Jr. is probably the most sexiest actor in Hollywood right now! (Trailer here)
3. Bollywood's "Guzarish" is a little off beat movie - but famous director Sanjay Leela Bhansali failed to create climax and emotional drama associated with issue of euthanasia. Hirthik Roshan is a bad pick for this movie. He failed miserably. Shah Rukh would have done much better. But Ashwariya Rai is prettier than before and did awesome acting. She looks so graceful and its worth to spend money because of her. (Trailer here)
