NOOR - What a confused and lazy way to make a crime investigative thriller with neither thrills nor any investigations ending on a weird note. (Review By Bobby Sing).

This Friday's One Line Reviews by Bobby Sing for making your movie plans..

When my Career Consultancy didn't work for a few strangely concerned parents. - by Bobby Sing (Few Life Inspiring Words - 23).

FAST & FURIOUS 8 (English/Hindi) - Partially enjoyable, but strictly for the fans loving the action genre. [TTP (To The Point) Review By Bobby Sing].

MANJE BISTRE (Punjabi) - It seems Punjabi Cinema is now stuck with period dramas focusing on a 'Vyah Wala Ghar' as their latest repetitive obsession. (Review By Bobby Sing).

BEGUM JAAN (Hindi) / RAJKAHINI (Bengali) - Benegal's MANDI meets Manto's TOBA TEK SINGH and Mehta's MIRCH MASALA in this bold but over dramatic effort, sadly remaining too bland to be called an epic despite its noble intentions. (An overview by Bobby Sing).

The last 2 shows at REGAL and the one man behind the event, nobody knows about. (A detailed emotional and technical description by Bobby Sing).

MUKTI BHAWAN (Hotel Salvation) - Could have been a classic, but surely deserves to be seen for its subject, performances and Varanasi in particular. (Review by Bobby Sing).

LAALI KI SHAADI MEIN LAADDOO DEEWANA - Stay away from this marriage and its tiring absurdity. [TTP (To The Point) Review By Bobby Sing].

MIRZA JUULIET - One of those strictly avoidable films that make you wonder why they got made and for whom? (Review By Bobby Sing).

New Delhi - Bobby Talks Cinema.com

You may not have heard of “New Delhi” as it is one of those unknown movies, which simply go  unnoticed at the time of their release. But in reality, it should be included in the list of classy and path-breaking bold movies. One of the best performances from Jeetendra, in a difficult but well written role. He is impressive in an intense and serious character of an editor and performs his act convincingly.

The movie has a novel concept in which an editor of a leading newspaper, gets a crime committed in night by his associated and becomes the first to publish the news of the same next morning. The entire star-cast has done full justice to their characters. The second half is racy and highly entertaining with a brilliant background score giving great support to the thrilling plot. Don’t take it as a slow intense movie, considering its name or its posters. On the contrary, “New Delhi” has some great surprise element for all lovers of thriller movies out there.
 
Directed By Joshi
Starring : Jeetendera & Sumanlatha

Haasil - Bobby Talks Cinema.com

One of the few intense and entertaining movies which stay in your mind for a long time after your first view. No was expecting something great when it was released initially, but then it went on to win hearts all over the country with its impressive content.

A Irfan Khan movie all the way and he compels you to see it again only for him, his mannerisms and his acting skills. Irfan does the toughest scenes with such an ease that you feel like giving him a standing ovation for his act. In fact it was this movie which made bollywood take notice of a simple man with average looks but with talent in abundance.
 
The movie is based on College Politics and Campus Elections are shown in a very realistic way. Some sequences of the movie are simply remarkable. For instance the scene when an election contestant tries to convince a girl to vote for him in his broken english. Jimmy Shergill also impresses along with sensuous Hrishita Bhatt. Well directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia who has also directed some entertaining TV serials in the past. Highly recommended for young students, actors and film-makers.
 
Directed By Tigmanshu Dhulia
Starring : Irfan Khan, Jimmy Shergil & Hrishita Bhatt

Mixed Doubles - Bobby Talks Cinema.com

An experimental and frank movie on a bold topic of wife swapping. Though it is based on a unconventional subject not appreciated by the society in the east, but still the movie is quite interesting due to the realistic performances by Ranvir Shorey & Konkona Sen Sharma.

After all the irrational thinking, they still find it tough to part away with their own traditional upbringing. It is in fact very soothing and loving to see that at the end, they retain their moral values after facing a steep downslide in their characters. The initial minutes of the movie are also quite funny and well directed. A good experimental movie by Rajat Kapoor and well shot in the limited budget frame.
 
Though I was told that it is highly inspired from "My Best Friend's Wife" released in 2001. So its not an original but still you will love watching it coming from an Indian Film-maker in Bollywood style.

This may be news to many and surely an interesting one. It is said that it was the master film-maker SATYAJIT RAY who was originally responsible for the 'Friendly Alien Concept' to be filmed later. He also had a complete outline of a script ready which was based on one of his own short story titled ‘Banku Babu Bondhu’ (Translated as Mr. Bonku’s Friend).

The famous Spielberg movie, “E.T.” is actually said to be based on the plot penned by the great RAY. The outline and the rough script of the idea kept roaming into several production houses in Hollywood before it was made as “E.T.” and there are many detailed stories associated with this. However the fact is not officially accepted. 
Here the interesting thing is that after many years our own film makers found their inspiration from Spielberg's “E.T.” for making their “Koi Mil Gaya” (2003) talking about a friendly alien.
A detailed reference to this is there in the book, “Satyajit Ray: The Inner Eye”  By Andrew Robinson.
You can also check the link : http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0006249/bio
Or just search “Satyajit Ray & Spielberg” and there are numerous references on the web.
Great Indeed !
