KGF ( Kolar gold fields )



I went to see this kannada movie dubbed in hindi because of recommendations by my marathi relatives . This movie is doing better than Shah Rukh's 'Zero' inspite of having been released in fewer theatres .

But on seeing it I found it to be a typical south Indian masala movie with over dramatic acting , loud dialogues , unbelievable action scenes . Walked out of the theatre about an hour after the movie began . Did not bother to watch full movie .

Verdict---Bad .

Looks worth watching

BTW, i watched 'Zero' on the weekend .
Although it was rated badly, it had Hakla. Some other Desis dragged me to this one. To put in Perspective, the last Hakla movie i watched on screen was 'Swades' in 2004. And the last Hakla movie i watched on my own was DDLJ in 95.

Coming back to this one, looks like the producer (Mrs Hakla) and director (dont know dont care), decided to implement 'Extreme Agile' in movie making. Here they wake up every fine day and decide what course the movie should follow that day.
Hakla is supposed to be a 4'6" good for nothing guy (the height also seems extremely agile between the scenes). Pretty much playing his real self without heels.
The story follows 'extreme agile' from there on.
The zero goes from Meerut to Bollywood and then to NASA and ultimately to Mars and then back to earth.
In between, besides the random story turns, there are usual Hakka antics and Anushka playing female Stephen Hawking.

Moral of the story- you can be an illiterate loser and still make it big. Pretty much happens at many places in real life like Cyber Coolie cos.

Anyways- The movie is a big zero and you may not like it despite me not liking it.

over dramatic acting , loud dialogues , unbelievable action scenes... those the very exact things that I love watching madrasi movies. Every scene is overloaded with extremities

Now the reasoning is this. For years, literally decades, I have been watching on/off dramatic, dialogueiey, flimsy scenes in India movies, both bhaiya and madrasi movies. It is only lately that I have noticed that they are over-doing it... and with oomph. I will take oomph any day than a partial effort at creating unbelievable scenes... be it deliberate rona-dona family drama or dishum-bishum fight scenes. Either be realistic... or be supernaturally unnatural, that is my request

And KGF is one movie I am looking forward to. Saw some reviews... and a trailer. I am sold. Looks like Deewar all souped up to the highest level . Just waiting for a good print to show up... maybe a local theater is showing it.
