No, really. It may not be over-the-top oscar-winning acting... but very subtly and underplayed. That is what got my attention... couldn't believe that our wooden-hero of yesteryears can act also

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

Escape from New York -

It is interesting watching Futuristic movies from the Past.

This one was made in 1981.

It predicts that by 1988, the Law and order situation in US is very bad and that whole of Manhattan Island is converted to a big Jail (penetiary). the prisoners are landed there and are on their own. they cant escape to mainland or for that matter Brooklyn.

The latest entrant there is 'Snake Pliscan' played by Kurt Russel. He is a war hero turned bank robber. He is about to be sent to 'the prison', when the President's plane also crashes (into twin towers!). The top cop of New York, played by Lee Van Clef, using his own way coaxes Snake Piscan into rescuing the president. To do that, Snake Pliscan has to jump through the hoops, network with an old friend and what not. Is he able to rescue the president?
Bollywood or Hollywood - hero never fails. Of course he ends up resuing the president
Watch the movie on Netflix or read the plot in wiki for the story.

Probably the last big movie of Lee van Clef. Fast with a decent amount of Dishum.

The technology aspect watching from 2017 is interesting or amusing. The cops are using some graphic to show Manhattan in 3D which way probably very advanced those days, but looks primitive now. No one predicted the use of CDs. The audio is still on tape.

On political/social / economic side, the Movie underrated US and NYC. Probably, NYC may have been like that if Rudy Giulliani had not fixed it. And they did not know that Communism (which is suspect the maker of supporting) would die down in 10 years to come.

Short, crisp and Bitterly delightful.

Dharam Paaji is a good actor. Chupke Chupke and Satyakam are some examples discussed elsewhere in Netflix. Unfortunately he is remembered as this bufoon in Sholay, which he sportingly played.
Sunny Paaji is also a good actor. Check his Sohni Mahiwaal, Ghayal, etc.

Khan and Kapoor dominated Bollywood didnt give them their due.

But I do not consider them as natural actors... they work real hard in a role, over-stressing themselves. Chupke Chupke is good because of the script and AB and UD. Satyakam for its script. And both for their director... not the hero.

Here's how I group actors,

Actors who are bad and work real hard (struggle): Dharmendra, Nicholas Cage, Shah Rukh Khan, etc.

Actors who are bad but have fun acting: Randhir Kapoor, Rakesh Roshan, etc.

Actors who are good and work real hard: Amir Khan, Amitabh, Om Puri, Robert De Niro, etc.

Actors who are good and enjoy acting: Govinda, Sanjeev Kumar, Naseerruddin Shah, etc.

For the umpteenth time I tried to watch Kaho Na Pyar Hai, but gave up. Not my cup of tea.

Wife made me watch sort of a sequel to Baghban, a movie called Baabul .. not much better than KNPH.

It seems to have a better rating now. If you could try Kapil Sharma, you could try this too.
1 pic from the movie.

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

There is a 70s movie silver streak.
Nice action and a bit of comedy with a lot of Bollywood style twists.
Some desi movies have copied parts of it, but yet to see a substantial copy of it.

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

Surprisingly, I liked a Mira Nair movie.. may be because it's not based in India.

Queen of Katwe is a Disney movie directed by Mira Nair. My rating 3.14/5

Fences, deathrace 2050, Snowden, The girl on the train, The accountant, Arrival, Hacksaw Ridge, La La Land, Lion, Passengers, Silence, Manchester by the Sea,
Assassin’s creed, Long half time walk, Hel or high water, don’t breathe, inferno, Jason Bourne, Magnificient Seven, Warcraft, X-Men Apocalypse, Rough One : Starwars

Any suggestion, which to start first?
