Hmmmmmm...someone else who loves the works of Naseeruddin and Om. I'm having fun discovering the great, the good, the bad and the ugly. You should maybe check out Jaane Bhi Do!

And, yes, subtitles are MUCH better than dubbing!

Glad to have stumbled across this blog. (And how.) What exactly is Mili's (yes, the 1975, Hrishikesh Mukherjee film) explanation for her name in the film. The dialogue, as I faintly remember, goes something like, 'mil kar bhi nahi mili' or some such.

Actually, I'm so very very glad I came across this blog. There are people who have seen and loved District 9 (While we're on the subject, I'd like to see you guys talk about - Moon -

And there's someone else obsessed with Shashi Kapoor. Man, my heart wept for the guy in so many of his films. (In a good way, I mean, I think...)

Since you have started reviewing Telugu Films..(i see four here..Mahatma, Arundati,Magadheera,Ek Niranjan)..I would suggest/Recommend you to review some other notable (not nonsensically boasted hit) movies in this last two years..


1) Maryada Ramana (2010)
2) Vedam (2010)
3) Prasthanam (2010)
4) Ye Maya Chesave* (2010)
5) Leader (2010)
6) Baanam (2009)
7) Prayanam (2009)


I strongly suggest you to review this films as these are some good movies which needs to be reached to different regional audience irrespective of their language.

Thank you in advance

Hey, I came across this movie "Zalzala" (1988) starring Dharmendra, Shatru, Kimi Katkar and Danny Denzongpa (way underrated in B'wood!) I think you should review it!

Nice site. You haven't reviewed / seen Bawarchi yet? According to me its easily the best hindi movie ever made, feel good, comedy, middleclass story. Its by Hrishikehs Mukherjee *ing Rajesh Khanna and Jaya Badhuri.

Some others in similar theme:
1. Choti si Baat
2. Angoor

For adventure:
1. The burning Train - Dharmendra and Vinod Khanna. BR Chopra's best
2. Kala Pathar - Big B and Shashi, Yash chopra was talented then.

I can't believe Tampopo is not on your list--one of the greatest films of all time and clearly right up your alley!

Came across this blog randomly and am enjoying it immensely.

I hope you can finish reviewing Yash Chopra's films (Kabhi Kabhie, Daag, Chandni) and look at the films of Mani Ratnam and Kamal Amrohi.
