Re: Netflix movies worth watching

This movie cameup on my recommended list. Some portion of the poster got my attention and decided to go for it.


Now, this Uttam Kumar was a famous Bengali hero. But in this one, his dialog delivery is horrible. The editing is very patchy and the camerawork seems amateurish.

But then, it makes it 'So bad, it is good'.

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

ANother one from Mehra productions - Yaar Gaddar.

A crazy movie -It went along great with vodka for me. Bank robbery, dance contest, double meaning songs plus one of the villains who looks like a drag queen make this interesting.

The whole movie may be crazy, but here is the double meaning song.

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 .

.
Haha. Enjoying this.
Amateurish acting. The only known actors are Gulshan Grover and Om Puri.
The heroine looks a darker, shorter and bustier version of Tamanna.

This one is the one on right in Doc ji's poster. While she looks like a typical Hooters girl, once the Vamp who is the girl on the left enters after 1 hour 20 minutes, the heroine relatively looks like a carrom board

And dont miss the highlight of the Amru villain speaking in broken Hindi and Om Puri playing Yamraj.

Could have been a good mainstream movie if the sound effects were better.

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

Watched Hateful 8 on Netflix.

Typical Tarantino movie ... excellent storytelling. Slow build up, then hack and slash, blood and guts, ruthless murders.

Better not to watch Bollywood. Total trash .. especially last 2 decades.. hardly 2-3 good movies a year. And unlike South Cinema there's almost no good music either. I don't recall hearing any songs that can be played 15-20 times.

I'm happy with Hollywood and Punjabi movies..

Punjabi cinema has started making some good stories into movies, with decent music.

Re: Netflix movies worth watching

Or like me, develop a liking for bad movies . However, the name Harry blah blah smells of a rom com and I hate those from Bollywood.
