Wednesday on a Wednesday !!!

Well....... I was confused which movie do i watch last night...Tahaan or Wednesday... Faced errors with former so sat down for the latter...Knowing that it was all full of blasts having seen the same in the promos...The another trade fact of this movie was that chief minister Narendra Modi was full of praises...The guy who neva saw any movie after 1942-- A Love Story, cannot he evolved as a cine goer. Doesnt understand wat movies of today are all about... So nevertheless I sat down for this...
Now what do you get when you cross 2 Veteran Theatre Actors yet extremely charismatic who play as its leading protagonists, 2 Actors whom nobody takes notice of other than their chocolate boy sweetie-pie looks and a bimbette known for her remix videos and hip-shakes in the videos??? A disaster of the millenium??? NO.... infact a wondefully made movie that appealed sooooooooo much that I would rank it in the cateogory of Rang De Basanti...Cut out music and extra senti dialouges..who needs them with a wonderful script and power-packed acting of Naseeruddin Shah ably supported to the Hilt by Anupam Uncle !!! Wednesday has none of the Bollywood OOmph or Masala.

WHY i rank it in the genre of Rang De Basanti types is that they both appeal as a outcry of the common man against the ongoings of our country...The helplessness of the govt. at a phone call to relieve the terrorists is sooo well-explained. Brings back the memory of the days wen militants were released in lieu of hijacked passenger in Afghanistan.Although i sometimes find RDB a little far-fetched..comeon,popping off the defense minister and everything...But here subtly and slowly everything is relieved as to how Nasirudding procures information abt everyone and everything via internet...it makes us believe that yes, wat he did is possible...
The O'Henry twist that this movie lent was Amazing...I had expected the usual cliched end with the death of Jimmy Shergill,who plays a tough ATS Commando...thought he wud give jaan for the nation and thus instill some desh-bhakti in the minds of viewers...Infact, it was assumed because the way Anupam Kher,the police commissioner asks Amir Bashir another cop to..."Ye Sab ho jaane ke baad tum, usko ............" its all upto ur imagination...
Amir Bashir,poor man's Jimmy Shergill, has come a long way since i saw him in some daily soaps...The way he acts as if acting infront of the TV camera is one time that i really liked him...Jimmy Shergill has come out of that cast of Mohabbatein..Even though he was catapulted to be the next heart-throb of the nation, he cud no way ever match the Hrithik mania...will come back to hrithik later...my friend,lets call her S,still goes weak in the knees wen she dreams of Hrithik inspite of knowing of his marital status...Jimmy mania though can never match that madness but has really really improved and I really hope he gets many projects to show case his brilliant performance. and Deepal Shaw better continue Your KABHI AAR KABHI PAAR jingles...thats the best profession for u...She tried to act and give a-la BARKHA DUTT type performance but i would give higher marks to Barkha's acting skills than her.She's failed at the role of an aspiring journo. She tries her best to be scintillating in an absolutely non-glamourous role but I would still suggest that she was better wen she acted as a porn star in Kalyug...Sometimes you can add a personal touch to some roles and some roles actually go along with ur persona...
Neeraj Pandey and his technical team deserve applauses for putting together a neat, cohesive and engrossing film about a subject that’s beginning to feature more than often in Bollywood movies.But the one who takes all the laurels is Naseeruddin Shah for yet another memorable performance... He looks soooooooooooooooooo natural when he talks as an antagonist who has taken up cudgels against the current system and terrorism.He doesn’t come with a stereotyped religious label. In fact, he has no label at all. He is a ‘common man’ who vents out his angst by taking on the system and trying to bring it down to its knees. Anupam Kher manages to bring about a calculated balance of calm, control and panic in his performance.
You actually feel like killing the villians of the movie when they call off their signatures as "93 BOMB-BLASTS---FAKR HAI!!!"........On the whole a paisa vasool movie... M so late in giving the reviews but wat to do couldnt resist...this movie deserved it..





Now you guys wait till i watch ROCK ON...Have Heard its good...

Hey,,First timer here...
A wednseday is really a must watch for all of us indians..
It just goes to show that we people are so pissed off about all such incidents..Insecurity is creeping inside everybody's mind and the govt better do something quick.. Else its not far when we find some people ganging up to take matters in their own hands... And it would be equally sad I must say... :-(
