Any takers for this now on Netflix now

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

Oh boy! This guy looks so raw and rugged in that poster ... Wouldn't miss this one for anything in the world. This guy is suchha delight to watch, so much so that he forgets he is an actor, portraying a character but actually shares the beliefs of the persona he's essaying. It's just outrageous! I'm game! Ittefaq can wait - Karzzzzz takes over!

This has Zeenat Aman liberally displaying her cleavage, wearing a shirt without a trouser and so on. Not a big deal nowadays but looks like Jagguji has a bit of exercise after watching this.

This is directed by Shammi Kapoor and he copies his bro in 2 respects - skin show by actresses and critique on society. As to how pros are also human beings and unlike other professions, commercial sex provides pleasure. Must have been shocking for 1974.

There are a lot of RGV banner movies now. A lot may like this one even though I liked it

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

There are a host of PBC documentaries on Netflix l. But one interesting one is on “How gay is Pakistan” respect to those gays and transgenders who appeared on this show putting their life at risk. Though on another thought, it would be at risk in P anyway,

There is a tragicomic part in this.

Mawaan Rizwan tests out an alleged 'miracle cure' for his homosexuality after a religious Imam claimed it can stop people from having gay sexual thoughts.

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

Came across a disaster movie called "The Wave" on netflix. Turned to be a Norwegian movie about a tsunami in a Norwegian fjord. I never knew there could be tsunamis in Norway -- or that there is Norwegian film industry. But this was a good one -- if you like disaster movies.

"Alias Grace" set in 19th century Canada was a good series (6 episodes) as well.

"Fauda" an Israeli/Arabic series (12 ep) set among the Israeli/Palestinian conflict is a pretty decent series. Season 1 is on Netflix, and I read that NF has picked up the second season as well -- can't wait.

Some really bad stuff on NF -- "James" by Ram Gopal Varma, "Baadshaho" what was Devgan thinking doing this one?

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

Hmmm... different minds. I had seen James a long time back and had liked it. Was toying with seeing it again. Watched Badshaahon recently and liked it. Yeah sure, it is not the best in class... but the twists and turns in the movie kept it engrossing.

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

I saw James in theater long back when I was in KKKK’s territory.

I found it good and simple. Hero just keeps bashing up villains. I shared the same in mouthshut, but most didn’t like it. So Zorro, do you like DDLJ, DTPH, much Lucy sorry ‘Kuch kuch’, etc.?

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

Oh, I also watch The Dinner.

This one was good. Its about a tragic death of a homeless person and the circumstances leading to it. Brilliant acting and I liked it how the emotions play and how rich (like really really wealthy) have their own moral conflicts.

Don't get me wrong, I love action movies where there is good acting and fight scenes. Those in James and Baadshaho were entirely absent. Just one guy beating up hundreds without an expression on his face and the typical RGV camera angles and bad music has become stale. It worked in his earlier movies -- but cant keep going to the same well again and again.

I have not yet seen DDLJ, etc. Stopped watching those kind of films after Maine Pyaar Kiya. Not my type of entertainment.

Also started watching something called Machli Jal Ki Rani -- oh man...!!

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

Thought James had good action scenes. Now you are forcing me to watch it again... just to see if it has good action scenes or not. But RGV, has to be good.

Baadshahon was just a thriller, a story of a heist. And I thought it did well for that. As for one guy beating up on hundred... I have given up on that a long time ago. Especially if it happens in real life... then filmy world mein kyon nahin If Tarantino and Chinese can do it then why not bollywood and gultis

Re: Netflix movies worth watching



WAARRIOR SAVITRI is the modern version of the story of satyavan savitri. So what is they story of satyavan savitri ?
It is a story from hindu mythology . Savitri was the daughter of a king . She fell in love with Satyavan . But the astrologer told her that Satyavan would die after marriage leaving her a widow . However Savitri was too deeply in love and married Satyavan nevertheless . And Satyavan did become lifeless soon . But Savitri took the lifeless body in her arms and prayed to the god of death ( Yama ) , who comes to take a person when his time on earth is over---according to hindu mythology . And she prayed for a long time . Yama was impressed by her devotion and appeared before her . She asked for him to spare her love Satyavan . But Yama said that when a man's time was up it was up . He had to take him away to heaven or hell , according to that man's deeds on earth . But he said that Savitri could ask him any other boon and he would grant her . So Savitri asked him to let her become the mother of Satyavan's child . And Yama granted that boon without thinking . But how could Savitri become mother of Satyavan's child if he was dead ? Yama had been tricked , and he had to bring Satyavan to life and reunite Savitri with her love . For this act , Savitri has long been considered the ideal wife by hindus for thousands of years .

So on to the movie....

Niharica raizada plays the modern savitri, who has martial arts skills and hence is a warrior. She marries against the advice of her astrologer , who says her husband will die after marriage as per his horoscope .

The couple shifts to Vegas, which gives Niharica the chance for some skin show in bikinis and some kissing smooching shots with her hero in bathtub .

But he has enemies there , who want to kill him . But they hadn't reckoned with SAVITRI---the warrior. She fights them all to protect her Satya...i mean Satyavan. Karate and kung fu chops are followed by entreaties by her to Yama ( Om Puri ) to spare Satya/Satyavan. And do I even have to spell it out that she triumphs over them all....

Photography of Vegas is good and songs are decent but editing of the film is rank sloppy. So sequence of scenes looks disjointed. Acting is not great .

One star out of five .
