Zila Gaziabad any good? It has crappy ratings on imdb, so didn't bother to watch.

Special 26 was refreshing

I started seeing it since I generally like tales on real life mafia, and those which have bad reviews.
But lost interest in this one after first 20 minutes. It was more like a Vivek Oberoi love story then.

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

After a lot of hesitation, saw "Ek Tha Tiger" this weekend. I thought it will be bad, had rock-bottom expectations... and I was pleasantly surprised. This is a simple fantastic movie. It does not bore you at any point... and the street-chase towards the end and the car-chase at the end are way above any such action scenes I have seen in hindi movies before. All in all, paisa vasool movie... whatever monthly fees that I spend on Netflix, that is.

And of course, the director chose his supporting cast well. Good to see Girish Karnad after a long time... and Ranvir Shorey is very good in his role. And above all, there is Roshan Seth. Wish they had more of him, he is there in a very itsy-bitsy role... and then disappears even though at one point it seemed the movie was all about him. That was disappointing.

Over all, the movie is definitely worth a watch. And I will probably be watching the ending scenes a few more times.

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

Had watched "Holiday" about a week back... forgot to write a review on that. The movie has its action scenes and all but is a typical over-the-top Ravi-Teja-movie-remake that fails miserably feel to it at all times. Akshay Kumar is no Ravi Teja... and it is so obvious in each and every scene that he acts in.

Yes, you can skip this one... unless you want to mindlessly waste couple of hours and be thrilled at the same time.

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

I just finished watching The Reader and I just had to write about it here. Its a good movie, a dark one if you will.
Again, this is one of those stories based on Nazi Germany. Actually its about one guard, Kate Winslet.

In the first half of the movie, Kate Winslet puts Savitha Babhi to shame. In the second, she will put you to shame for thinking of her that way.

have i mentioned its a dark movie? Liked it anyway.

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

I finally got around to watching Dhoom 3. It was OK to an extent but I wasn’t too happy with the story line.
Spoiler alert below.

What I loved: I absolutely loved all the songs on stage where Katrina and Aamir were dancing. They did a phenomenal job and it probably took months of training to be able to do that. It reminded me of Cirque Du Soleil’s KA which is my all-time favorite. I simply cannot get my head around how beautifully they performed on stage. I also really liked the scene where they both have a short conversation in the train station. I will not mention it for the fear of being called sappy

What I didn’t like: It was so selfish on the part of Jackie S to hide one of his son’s for the sake of his so called tricks. It was so very wrong to manipulate the young boy to stay hidden to keep that a secret. And what was he trying to prove by committing suicide? He simply took a loan he couldn’t afford to repay and left the world leaving 2 young children (one of the autistic or/and ADHD) to fend for themselves. No wonder they turned out to be thugs.
Not to mention he was perfectly OK to sign the bank documents to get money but when the time comes to repayment, instead of filing bankruptcy he had to commit suicide.

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

Highway:

Another movie which I enjoyed watching (3 weeks ago). If only they had also shown in the end that the leading lady was suffering from Stockholm syndrome. Considering that she was abused as a child, it is understandable that she got attracted to her abductor. She was displaying typical symptoms of being un-well (kind of depression). But what was not ok was the fact that the director didnít really bother telling that it is still not OK to fall in love with your abuser. She needed clinical help. I wished that fact was made clear. Who knows what stupid teenager would get wrong notion that perhaps it is fine to fall in love with abusers. Itís not fine. Itís unhealthy.

Otherwise, Itís a good movie.

I don't get it why people liked this movie.. I couldn't watch after 15-20 minutes. It was like she's got herself abducted and its a nice adventurous picnic. Too much overacting and BS for me to handle.

The movie that was an 'okay' watch was Mardaani..
Also, Mary Kom movie was good.. No BS, decent acting and fast paced.

ya, Ali bhatt seems to have been Kareena-Kapoor influenced. She seemed to almost resemble what Kareena did in Jab we met.

Any in reality, the girl would have been raped and dumped in some corner. But what I liked in the movie is the free spirit of the girl. carefree and all. reminded me of my olden days

I started watching Mardaani. By next weekend I think i will finish watching it.
