Movie Reviews: THe Incredible Hulk & Dasavatharam

]

Brief reviews of the two movies I watched yesterday. Manged to watch one after the other 😀 O

HULK:

I LOVED THE MOVIE! Edward Norton (HULK) is one of my FAV actors. There’s this innocence about his face. There’s so much love in the movie. 

Incredible HULK is definately different to the previous HULK since this HULK doesn’t want to be the angry green man anymore.  Liv Tyler is fab too as HULK’s ‘girl friend’. Though sometimes, it did feel like I was watching Beauty and the Beast 😀

Special effects are fantastic….though I thought HULK could be a little more good looking 😉

There definately will be HULK 3 and it could have Iron Man in it 😀 That will be fabulous! To know why…you should go watch the movie.

Overall, the movie is thrilling, exciting, full of action, lots of love and fantastic locales (e.g. Brazil).

My rating: 3.5/5

DASAVATHARAM

The first tamil movie I watched was Sivaji because of all the hype and it did not have subtitles 😦 Considering I don’t speak or understand a single word of tamil, it was a nightmare. I had to be satisfied with the eccentricites of RajiniKanth….which were surprisingly entertaining. It was astonishing that there were just 10 pple in the screen watching the movie.

It was a different story for Dasavatharam. People were standing and watching the movie and it had subtitles too 😀 and what should I say about Kamal Hassan. He is simply FANTASTIC. He is truly blessed. He plays ten characters in the movie; Govind Ramasaamy (the real Kamal Hassan), Rangaraja Nambi (devotee of Lord Vishnu)George Bush, Avtar Singh (a famous pop singer), Christian Fletcher (ex-CIA member aka the villian), Shinghen Narahasi (Chinese martial arts master), Krishnaveni (grandma), Vincent Poovaraagan (social activist), Kalifullah Khan (a rather tall muslim man) and Balaram Naidu (my favourite character of all…RAW official…and a telugu).

The movie starts off sometime in the 12th century. Rangaraja Nambi is drowned in the sea with the idol of Lord Vishnu by the King who is a follower of Lord Shiva. He is reborn in the 21st century as Govind Ramasamy and works for a Biotech COmpany in the US. His company is on the verge of selling a very effective but a dangerous bio-chemical weapon to the US army and Govind is out to stop this from happening. THis takes him from US to India. Following his every movie is Christian Fletcher (Kamal again) who has been assigned by the weapons manufacturer to kill Govind and get the sample back. Govind is held captive by RAW officials (Balram Naidu also Kamal) on his return India and the rest of the story is revolves around how Govind retrives the sample and saves the world 🙂

Kamal Hassan touches on many issues in the movie….from Global Warming, to War….from Social Discrimination to Religion. Considering his age…he’s in good shape. I have been a great fan of his dancing skills since Sagara Sangamam.

My Rating 3/5

Why Oh Why?!

I login to wordpress, check out what my felow bloggers have been upto and then logout. I’ve become so lazy…so lazy that I am watching NDTV Imagine’s version of Ramayan instead of simly changing the channel.

I have decided to take my life under control…and I must have made this decision atleast 100 times before 😀 The weather here is soo crappy! It’s dull, cloudy and to top it all up…it’s also windy! Can it get any worse…oh yes..it can…it aint raining luckily! Weather does have an affect on how you get along with your day to day activities. Apparently, S suffers from SAD aka Seasonal Affective Disorder…but he very well wakes up at 6AM everyday. Probably it’s me who suffers from it and I aint accepting it. Oh how so convinient…blame something or someone for your shortcomings. Now a days there’s a syndrome for everything! You sleep 9 1/2 hours a day…it’s a syndrome…you like wearing black most of the time and that’s another right there 😀 How crazy world has become these days! God save us!

Anyways, since yesterday, I have been listening to two songs continuously. I am not a great fan of Telugu Music. My favourite list starts and ends at Ilayaraja and occasionally Devi Sri Prasad. This is THE maximum extenet I dare to venture…but the two songs I have been listening since yesterday come from Mani Sharma from the movie Chirutha and Pokiri and then I realised I liked quite a few of his songs…like Rovoyi Chandamama starring Nagarjuna and the forgettable Anjala Zaveri.

Here goes

 NjoY!
