What a story less, boring stuff with really tiring screenplay it could be was disclosed on 22rd January 2010 as much hyped Veer saw the lights of thousands of Silver screen globe over.

Barring two songs, Veer is a big money waste, confused proposition.

Zarine Khan, the Katrina Kaif look alike does not have single glimpse of Katrina. But she look beautiful.

Mithun is ok, so is Sohail Khan.

Over all Veer reminds of all Hollywood flicks viz. Troy, 300, Braveheart and war movies based on Spartan and Troy stories.

My ratings: 0.5/5

Guy Ritchie’s newest baby Sherlock Holmes, begins with a bang unlike many movies whose first 15 mins could well be missed. Sherlock Holmes and his trusty assistant Watson shut down Lord Blackwood’s evil plans of murdering a young girl just in the nick of time. Hanged Lord ‘B’ returns from beyond the grave to embark on a mystifying and dark journey to destroy the men that brought him down. In comes Sherlock Holmes, the world’s first consulting detective who’s down-and-dirty appearance would make purists of Arthur Conan Doyle’s beloved books squirm. It is now upon Holmes and Watson to unravel the puzzle that is deeply rooted within dark magic and sprinkled with a few entertaining obstacles.
A simple story, yes, but the movie is pure magnificence. The dark cinematography gives audiences a grungy feeling throughout the movie. The music is electrifying and inspiring making you want to jump out of your seats with adrenaline over the solution you feel you have just discovered along with Holmes. Although, Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes might not enthral beloved readers of the book, it is meant to thrill modern audiences.
Robert Downey Jr. has emerged victorious, putting behind him his stumble in the drugs and alcohol area. Think a brilliant combination of Hugh Laurie from House and Johnny Depp from Sleepy Hallow to picture an eccentric, narcissistic and hate-to-love character that fills the illustrious shoes of Sherlock Holmes. Jude Law as the beleaguered yet extremely loyal and efficient Dr. Watson is brilliant. His crisp and sweet character is very lovable. Guy Ritchie brings to life a bromance that Law and Downey have crafted very well for the screen. Rachael Mcadams as the supposed love interest to Downey is wasted, although he does get flustered every time he interacts with her, the audience can definitely see that he is Watson’s through and through, even though he may not know it. Maybe she will get more screen time in sequels to come which was suggested at the end when Sherlock is about to begin a cat-and-mouse game with his arch nemesis Professor Moriatry.
All in all, Sherlock Holmes thrills, entertains and tickles. A superbly wonderful time spent and a must-watch.

What to watch out for? Sherlock Holmes planning his moves on potential attackers. Also pay very close attention to all the dry dialogues throughout the movie.

MOVIE REVIEW: PYAAR IMPOSSIBLE

BET YOU, SIT FOR JUST MORE THAN 2 HOURS. IMPOSSIBLE!!!

“Pyaar Impossible” is the first release from the Yashraj Camp in 2010. And nothing more can one expect from Yashraj but a HIT.

And how impossible it is to hit the bull’s eye is what you……

BET YOU, SIT FOR JUST MORE THAN 2 HOURS. IMPOSSIBLE!!!

“Pyaar Impossible” is the first release from the Yashraj Camp in 2010. And nothing more can one expect from Yashraj but a HIT.

And how impossible it is to hit the bull’s eye is what you feel after watching “Pyaar Impossible.”

“Pyaar Impossible” is story of loser in love (Uday Chopra) and carefree, bubbly college beauty (Priyanka Chopra) and about all predictable situations and acquaintances following on.

The first time producer and re-launching himself in every next home production, UDAY CHOPRA fails to live unto the the YASHRAJ legacy.

It reminds of “Kuch Kuch Hota Hain”, “Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaaenge” and the Salman Khan starrer, “Jab Pyar Kisi Se Hota Hain.”

PRIYANKA CHOPRA looks cool and fresh but never been so weak on screen like in this film. Still I suggest, watch this film only if you are Priyanka Chopra fan.

Dino Morrea and Anupam Kher naturally type cast as always. Music below average and not a single song has notes to become a classic. Now this never been the case of Yashraj films.

Bottom line – STORY IMPOSSIBLE. MUSIC IMPOSSIBLE. ACTING IMPOSSIBLE. HIT IMPOSSIBLE. PERIOD.

My Ratings – 1.5/5 stars.
