Re: Netflix movies worth watching

Those Marathi movies on Netflix,

Hridaynath: Jackie Shroff stars in this one as an old school teacher (master), who dislikes conflict... to the level that he will just give in and take a beating but not stand up. Then his heart changes... physically... and he changes into a small time ganglord. But due to budget restrictions (movie-making, low production values), he never rises up to his zenith... and the movie just fritters away. Watch if you have nothing else to do.

Ideachi Kalpana: A remake of the old Sanjeev Kumar/Farouqhue Shaikh movie, "Dus Lakh". But of course, the marathi movie takes it a scale up and adds more twists and turns. A funny one-time watch. The twists towards the end really seem unending till you keep asking for more... and more.

Shame-to-Shame: A mixup of twins... but old and badly made... the mixup seems very forced. Can be skipped.

Pheka Pheka: This is a remake of the old "Aaj ka Taja Khabar"... and not funny at all. It has the constipated-looking Ashok Saraf making his forced-faces all through out. And there are no add-ons or twists, follows the old movie faithfully. The original hindi movie is way better.

Kay Dyache Bola: This is a gem of a movie... a loose remake of "My Cousin Vinny". Couple of college guys get falsely accused of murder... and their lawyer-uncle comes from the village to rescue them. Dialogue-delivery of this uncle is first-class and takes the movie from its simple nature to the high-level of movie-making. Definitely worth a watch, if only one-time.

Started watching "Aajcha Divas Majha"... will update after watching... give me a few days/weeks.

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

This is one movie which i found not worth watching. So, there might be a few out there who like it.

O21 -

The synopsis said it was about corporates mining Afghanistan and some extremist leaders thrown in sounded interesting.

Found that is a Pakistani movie, relatively high budget with some Firang actors.

But the presentation is horrible. It is slow but with horrible editing, there is a frequent flipping of scenes. The background music is also monotonous and does not even reflect what is going on in the scene. The result is a headache and you dont know where the movie is heading.

In imdb, all Pakistani posters are going gaga over it. I would be more like the audience in a couple of Karachi halls who booed this movie and forced the halls to change it.

The guy is a domestic terrorist who mailed/delivered explosives between 1978-1995 throughout US causing death, injuries, destruction and panic in the process. Law enforcement is unable to track him down as he's very careful and creative to remain elusive. This show is about FBI's struggle to catch him.
Awesome series! Finally watched it! Thanks for the recommendation!!

apparently speaking Hindi is Sonia Gandhi's accent is the "In" thing. I have been practising and might i add, I am getting very good at it.

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

Tukaram .. Marathi movie based on life of the 16th century saint Tukaram. Good watch even if you know his story.

Need more of such movies.. I’m always impressed with Marathi movies.. they pick up good topics. Always good writing, acting and great music.

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

Completed 'Aaj Cha Divas Mazha'. Fantastic movie with its simplistic story. As Sarvistakamana pai says above, good writing, acting and music

Saw 'Deool' or something too. Another simple movie but great story and acting. A simpleton dreams of seeing a god under a tree... and the only logical person in the village is out of town at that time. So as the story spreads, the unscrupulous of the villagers (including unwilling Nana Patekar) build a temple and make hay while the sun shines. The simpleton is confused and amazed by his own actions.

'Fakt Ladh Manha' - a Kottey-Sikkay/Sholay remake. Nothing fancy. Just good acting and a bit of a masala movie.

P.s. Btw- itne din kahaan gayab tha kinda missed you

When Bollywood produces only trash, one has to widen the gaze and find good cinema elsewhere.

I'm game for content driven films. Language chahe koi ho. From Malayalam to Bengali to Marathi to Bollywood
Also, I've been looking forward to watching Sonalee and Khedekar's Shutter. Not out on dvd yet. Faster fene seemed interesting too.

P.s. Saw the original of shutter loved it!
