Dung De Basanti

Yeah! I am so happy about this movie!!! Especially because I never saw it.

The latest victim of this movie was my friend Y. He was outraged by the way the movie makes a mockery of the audience with a plot that is inconsistent and superficial. Unless, it's anything chalega. I heard this first from many friends and then I read it too!

Yes, I know it was stylish, it was cool, bindas and all that sort of thing and of course, and many people are loving it!

This movie would have easily mingled with the other bollywood flicks being churned out except for the tall claims made by the publicity. It would really help if they would not raise our expectations so much with all the hype. The maker should have atleast taken care to see how convincingly he kills the main characters in the end...

My friend Y wished he went to Aksar instead. Atleast he would have seen to it that he left his brain at home before watching it...

I asked another friend D, how he actually found it OK. He said, "Neenu story tho involve avvanu kada!" (I never get involved with the story in the first place!). Yes, the visuals and the fun-stuff in the earlier part of the movie are kinda fun but please leave your brain outside after the first half! This is nothing like Yuva...

i do agree.. but i think the disappointment and criticism is very high cos the movie was over-hyped even from the day1 of its shooting.. mebbe cos of the all-time-successful "aamir-rahman" duo..

well..this is my take..the movie has its heart in the right place..the intention was spot on..but the ending was too much for even me to digest..and I can digest a lot! could've ended on a more realistic note..found alice very cute i must say..and "soo...kar mere man ko.." was hilarious!

i guess i agree with u on that..although i watched the movie twice (I had to!! had promised my cousin I would take her for it...and saw it with my friends before that!!!)

In a sense, its also a repitition of what happened 50 odd years back..the faces have changed...

when it comes to such movies, always makes me wonder,"why were Indians a part of the British army? How could they kill other Indians?" so many questions crop up...all unanswered..

Truly.... the movie was indeed SAD. While the characters do well, the story line fails to show any element of reality. The hype? well.... now we all know how we should avoid watching a well hyped movie!!!
