the heat is consistent. 42 - 43 degrees and counting.
'life in a metro' shd be good...i hope its the very next flick I watch since the last Casino Royale binge.
so shd 'cheeni kum'...seems interesting...might not survive at the BO tho like 'nishabd'...auntyjis and unclejis can't digest bachchan sr. as anything but a noble, sherwani clad patriarch of a wannabe joint family a la yashraj or johar or at the least, a noble, khaki clad policewala. pity.
i kinda enjoyed his OTT, audacious and totally out-of-the-blue character in Boom, that doomed pic.
Acting is about pushing the envelope, pretending to be somebody you are not, soaring to new heights...but in apna Hindi cinema, for the most part, its all about sticking to the tried n tested and wearing designer stuff and making the family segment happy...hence, mediocrity is celebrated and incredibly hyped.
I really like Kay Kay Menon...hes a true actor...sadly, anyone who brings an amount of intensity to their role is branded 'arty' or 'offbeat' since they lack the gloss and fluff...
the influx of small-budget/indie/creative film makers and houses like Anurag Kashyap, Anurag Basu, Onir, UTV and others is a huge dose of much-needed oxygen into the hindi film scene.
