Last few day saw me watching loads of movies and before you get your ideas running all of the them were family movies. (Albit my sense of family is just husband and wife). Some them including Slumdog Millionaire (Yeah Its Pirated), Cindrella Men, Ghajini, OLLO, Rab Ne and etc… (These are censored ones).
I liked most of the them. Some for few minutes and some during the casting shown at the end. I liked Ghajini for “few minute” and before you people start to shoot flame mails i wish to say that the hype actually killed the interest in the film. Had it been a little less of publicity film than it would have been liked. Its the same as the kuchelan of Rajnikanth. Its was a hit but not because of the story but the hype called Rajnikanth.
I liked the Slumdog. And it not only because its a Rags to Riches story but the way the story unfolds. It has three story of same person running simultaneously and you are never confused between the three. i love this movie becuase its so down to earth. At the time when anil kapoor (anchor of KBC) ask the Dev Patel (The hero and a Office Boy at a Telecom Company) that if he gets lots of 100$ Bills for his services. and pat the boy replies “Its the minimum in my line of Business.” The music is another Rehman’s greatism. Though i liked the music of Lagaan and Taal more than that of the Slumdog. I Recommend that you guys listen to the western version of Ishq Bina(Taal) and and English and hindi Mix of O re Chori (Lagaan).
Coming to music. I have listen loads of songs on my PMP bought few months back. Some of my roomies said its not good as an iPod. My answer to them “Get an iPod and than talk.” but what i wish to say is that i have been playing some really cool songs. Some of the songs which i have liked are . Emosonal Atyachaar (Dev. D), Title Song of Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!. No Its not because of abahy doel and his cutes.(i still don’t find him cute)
If hate remixes than i would suggest that you listen to these remixes. and before you say “WTF Remix, again”?? Its not exactly remix but they are type of experimental projects where origianl artist sing the song but with hell more than instruments playing in the background than the original. Listen to them once and you will forget the original songs. They can be found at www.cokestudio.com.pk or coke studio. The best part is that you can actually download the videos and MP3’s from the site. My recommendation is Sar Kiye Ye Pahar By Strings. Thanks to alok from Alok’s Crib Sheet for passing me the link.
