Wow so many positive reviews for Aashique 2 and I'm starting to get curious about this flick

@Choco
ABCD has another major minus point; Prabu Deva's dialogue delivery. He was clearly confusing and boring

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 

I didn't really expect much from it but I loved it so much! The message it wants to give is subtlety presented with all the different people and their own stories. We live in a very ageist society today and old people do get lonely and feel like they're worthless. But this movie shows how they have so much more to offer. 

I loved Maggie Smith's character so much! The way she looked at everything like she was going to get some disease and was wary of India was shown so well. Her relationship with the low caste servant who ends up calling her to her house and giving her this simple thaali with food for her was the sweetest thing.

Tom Wilkinson's story was really touching as well. And the actress who plays Gaurika did such a great job. She barely had a line to say in the movie but her expressions said so much when her husband hugged Graham. 

I really liked how they showed call centers too. People always have such negative things to say about them but the reality is that a lot of the people who work there are university graduates. India has such a high population that you have to do something to give these young people some work.

Dev Patel was hilarious in certain scenes but others I found his Indian accent too exaggerated. Tena Desai did a great job as Sunaina and she's so pretty, I dunno how she doesn't have more Bollywood offers! 

Overall, 3.5/5 

Great movie!

Jolly LLB(spoilers)

Nice movie. Among one of the best so far this year. The concept was pretty good even though the execution wasn't very well done. The pace was slow but the waiting for the result keeps you hooked till the end. It was somewhat inspired by Salman Khan's hit and run case, and how rich people get away with it. But in the end justice prevails. Performance wise Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani were amazing. Very convincing throughout but Saurabh Shukla was my favorite. He's a phenomenal actor. And it was nice seeing Amrita Rao after a long time.

Overall it was a good watch.

4.5/5

Go Goa Gone:
Nice timepass movie. A good one time watch. The best bits of the movie was in the trailer though. The performances were decent. Kunal Khemu stood out. The music was appropiate for the mood of the film. The locations were beautiful.

Kai Po Che

Need some time to gather all my thoughts on this one...the acting was very good, the cinematography was awesome, the direction, everything. The only Chetan Bhagat book I ever read was Five Point Someone ..so I don't really have anything to compare too, but I thought this was a finely crafted film. It's more about the moments and I love such movies.

The scene were Omi-Ishaan hug after India-Aus epic match, the Pari Hoon Main sequence, the scene where Ishaan finds out about Govi and Vidya..so many more...

We've had a lot of bromance films over the years but this one holds its own space..is different and has its own endearing camaraderie between the 3,..and  different story. I wasn't really reminded of RDB, DCH, ZNMD as such which is GOOD.

The last climax was so UNDERPLAYED. This film is full of those scenes. The riots scene was so naturally shot that it was disturbing. I hate hate watching things like this...but the tension Abhishek Kapoor created. Hats off.

Personally all bias aside, this was the best movie I've seen all year so far.

Ahhh...I need to find the review thread to ramble there because I don't wanna spoil the movie forthose who haven't seen it yet.

4.5/5

It was pretty good. Well written story with some chartbuster songs in between. I thought this movie wouldn't offer much content wise but it was pretty good. Liked the whole concept of rise and fall of a superstar. Performance wise the main leads were disappointing. ARK was somewhat good but he overdid it in some scenes. Shraddha was plain bad. Poor girl can't act to save her life. The movie wouldn't been so much better with some other main leads, those who can act.
 
Nevertheless, it was a good watch. One of the best this year. Recommended!
 
4/5

haven't seen the film but I agree better actors always make a film never break it. Shraddha is pretty to look at but she needs to take acting classes..haven't seen any if her films but you can tell if someone can act or not just by the promos. ARK has huge potential..he's new needs time/experience. Haven't seen any of his films either..judging from most of his film promos I have seen lol

apparently one of the reviews said that the director of A2 wanted the actors to look boring and underplay their characters.. which was a bad idea I think from the reviews I read it seemed like that turned the actors into boring robots on screen.
