I went to the movies yesterday to watch Mongol but my plan backfired. After some emotional blackmail’ing’ by S, I sat through Sarkar Raj. I was not mad about watching this movie after reading Raja Sen’s rediff review…and I also had an inkling that it would not live up to the prequel Sarkar.
I cannot get myself to write reviews about movies that I don’t like so please read Raja Sen’s review here. Instead, I will let my dear readers know what I didn’t like about the movie.
Welcome to the world of Sarkar Raj where people never smile…No..Never. It is depressing.
Meet Anita Rajan (aka Ash Rai Bach) who is supposed to be the CEO of a multi billion dollar Energy Company but is not half as dynamic as she is supposed to be. Instead, she takes people management,leadership and communication skills tuitions from Shankar Nagre (Abhishek Bachchan).
One wonders why this ‘CEO’, who is supposed to be sitting in her air-coditioned office signing off deals and contracts lingers around Shankar Nagre. Doesn’t she have better things to do?
Why Shankar Nagre confides in the CEO about his dark secrets and fears is above my understanding 😛 I mean…the man just lost his wife (Avantika aka tanisha) and it’s not even been a week and is already smitten by the London returned chick who walks like a model and talks like a plastic doll 😈
There are too many twists and turns that by the end…you loose the plot and find it difficult to piece things together…who is who…who did what…what’s he doing here…isn’t he supposed to be dead etc etc are some of the common questions that pop up in your head…
Amitabh is definately toast of the movie. Rest do an OK job. Ash’s job is to cry and talk about the power plant…that’s it.
Overall, the movie is dark and depressing. Don’t waste your money….rent the dvd once its out or even better…watch it online 😀
My Rating: 2/5
PS: New Photographs in my Photoblog. Do take a look 🙂
Well today…as always…I woke up late…had breakfast and watched 53rd Annual Filmfare Awards because my parents told me it was very funny! Esp Srk’s and Saif’s gig. It was not bad…I admire the way these two manage to poke fun on others and also on themselves. I was happy that Darsheel Safary of TZP won the Best Actor Critics award. He deserved it. I think filmfare awards are almost always rigged….since most of the awards go to the big banners and the big actors even though they haven’t done any worthwhile acting.
Well, this year was probably a little different…SRK for Chak de deserved it. Darsheel could also have won it..he was fabulous in TZP. Best Film and Best Director went to TZP and Aamir Khan…which was again well deserved. Kareena for Best Actress was not a bad choice either…she was good in the Jab We Met.
I was laughing like a crazy woman whenever SRK and Saif came up on stage! How they manage to annoy so many people and still survive in the industry is a wonder to me 😀
I am watching Amar, Akbar, Anthony….one of my all time fav classic hindi movies. I love the songs…esp Parda hai Parda and My name is Anthony Gonsalves….and Vinod Khanna…how good looking he was in the movie 😀
I am also in the process of updating the pictures to my page. So have a look and let me know if you guys like ’em.
Till then…cheerio, keep smiling and enjoy the music 🙂
