Started that. The anecdotes are interesting, but too less of song or screen time unlike what used to come on NDTV. BTW, Javed A claims he had low pay of 50 rs (it wasn't too low in late 60s) and used to sleep in the studio. But then goes on to cite the works of his dad who was also a film wala. How come an active film guy's son is that poor.

His father was separated from his mom so he lived with his father for only a few years.. and grew up at his maternal grandfathers place.

I read his mini autobiography in a poem book tarkash.. been a fan of his writing.. not so much his views on India, etc

You might think I made a copy paste mistake, but no! The three movies have the same theme. The director has taken the concept from Sidney Sheldon novels where a female character is the protagonist and has added Bollywood masala, sex and some songs. That's it.

The lead characters are all newcomers, at least to me as I have never seen them before. Maybe in a tv ad or a tv show, but definitely none of them were known to me. Their acting is just okay.

I think these films, if they did well at the box office, have connected with a certain kind of audience who wants full on masala and lots of sex in a movie. It has dollops of both.

Are these great movies? No.

Are they timepass? Yes if you use the remote to fast forward certain scenes which are boredom inducing.

Should you watch them? If you have nothing at all to do, then yes, for timepass!

Hate story 3 was actually guy on vengeance.

They are time passes though- agree with you on that.

He may still be more agreeable than his better half (I do like her acting though). When Gadar ek Prem Katha was released and Shabana azmi criticized it, Anil Sharma claimed that her husband liked it.

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

I am sorry - I keep posting about shows on Amazon on a NetFlix Thread.. To me Amazon/Netflix etc is what i consume these days and they fall in the category of Online Shows..

'Fortitude' - Amazon - Just Amazing..

About a small place called 'Fortitude' in the Arctic Circle - Population 700 - Murder mystery/Northern Lights / Stark living conditions in one of the most beautiful/ hostile places on earth

Very Very Interesting so far.

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

If you are into Amazon shows, then my favorite there so far has been Bosch

Now that a proper police detective show with one entire season busy solving the same main crime.

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

There are a couple of documentaries which appreciate Rossevelt in WW2.
'Wheelchair President' and 'Untold History of the United States'

In both these, Roosevelt is pressuring Churchill to free colonies including India. Churchill was trying his best to avoid it.

So this leads to a question 'Did Churchill pop up Jinnah just to counter Indian Freedom movement'. Googling Churchill and Jinnah supports this.

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

There is a documentary on sunny leone. You get to see her husband and brother (who is called Sunny and she used his name as her screen name).

I was actually cringing at the idea of being her brother. In all honesty, I were in his place, I would have been disgraced by her first career as a porn star and would have been happy to see her leave that and get into mainstream movies. She talks a lot about her mom, but you don't see her in the first 20 minutes. Am going to finish this one. I actually felt sorry for the mom too. It may be tough for a desi parent to have a daughter who is a porn star. For their sake hope she stays with mainstream movie.
