Watch a bad movie

There are advantages of watching a bad movie. Bad movies makes u think, of why the movie is bad. It will also help you advice others not to watch a movie. Sometimes the reviews by big newspapers are misleading.

Take the recent movie ACCIDENT directed by Ramesh Arvind, that talented actor. The movie is a waste from the scene one. My good friend who came to watch with me had the suspense solved within half an hour of the movie.

So what went wrong. Direction all the way. The plot was there. Had it been handled sensibly, it could have been a well told story. Whats Pooja Gandhi doing in the movie. Wouldnt it have been better if the role was played by Tapori Rachna herself. And how does Rekha fit into the role of Ramesh's wife. God Knows. The first half was very bad with so many loose ends. Second half was little better directed. The only saving grace was the song " Baa Malleya Baa". Though SudhaRani was only for some minutes on screen, i thought she looked more beautiful and acted with more superbly than Rekha and Pooja. Now that is what is meant by Putting life into the character.

Better go and rewatch the old ACCIDENT

Why Am I Blogging

Bcoz the whole world is doing. I have seen blogs which has only recipes, blogs which stage a growth of a child through different ages (I think that blog and the kid is 5 years old now) . Another Truman Show in Progress.

I always fancy movies with good plots, that one concept that keeps it apart.

Recently watched a malayalam movie called Chocolate where due to some reservations, a handsome guy is given a admission for a PG Course in an all girls college. It had its good share of laughter and drama. But the ragging part of the movie was hilarious where the girls make the boy wear a petticoat.

So College Campus is used as a setting around which good concepts are woven and then masala and characters are added. One such good example is Mein Hoon Naan where they took the College as the centre stage, then made Shahrukh Khan, a man in 30s get a admission, masala was added in the form of an old broken relationship and charactors were added like that of sunil shetty. Phew! Movie is ready. Sorry, Blockbuster is ready.

This is true not only in Malayalam and Hindi but also in Bollywood.

Take for example, Never been kissed staring Drew Barrymore. Concept - a reporter getting admission to a college who is not beauty conscious or something like that; Masala; Some report for the local newspaper; Characters : Some bitches and a handsome professor and some funny colleagues. Phew! Movie is ready.

So easy to make a movie na
