Watched 4 movies in 1 week

Lootera, Bhaag Milkha bhaag, Raanjhaana, Ghanchakkar

I am not a movie freak but once in a while, college life, child inside me that i have seem to hidden somewhere in my mind all came tumbling out and at least for some of the days, corporate rachit again becomes a college going rachit; rachit who once questions everything and anything.

This week has been again quite hectic but this time not due to deadlines and work pressure but because of pursuing some of the interesting stuff : movies and books. I have received one of the books to review and that is why, i have to review it in 10 days of receiving it. Also, the weather was also very cold this week due to continuous showers in Hyderabad and thus I decided to work from home 2 days out of 5, this week.

In last 8 days, I ended up in watching 4 movies with my wife.

  • Lootera

 This is the best movie of the season. This movie was inspired from the short story called The last leaf written by O. Henry. I have already read this story during my school days and also have written a blog on it. So, I was already convinced before watching the movie that it will be a good watch. So, may be many of you find this review biased, I cant do anything because perhaps it is. The greatest curiosity was that this story is very short and thus, the movie crew must have got lot of opportunities for doing the experiments. And yes, as expected, the story was moulded  to suit the requirements of the present day young audience and thus showcasing a very good cinema.Music was no doubt very good and this movie was also an easy watch.

Also, this movie actually has little to do with the story the last leaf and it is only after intermission that the movie seems to influenced from the story.  It has something for everyone from good music,romance to thriller and suspense. This movie has been showcased in such a way not many movies are showcased these days.

  • Bhaag Milkha bhaag

 This story is based on the Real life story the  "The Flying Sikh" Milkha Singh. It covers his life from the very childhood and till the time when he has proved himself and become the Flying sikh. 
It revolves around the highs and lows of the Milkha. There are some moments prior to interval/in the beginning which are not required and boring and can be edited to reduce the long 3 hours length of the movie. Overall, it is a very good and motivating watch. It was not an easy task selling Milkha singh lifestory as he is not a Sachin tendulkar but the movie crew did wonderful task in showcasing the complete story. 

Farhan Akhtar did complete justice to his role and he is resembling very much to actual Milkha in this movie, thanks to his make up team. His dedication was amazingly great and by watching the movie, one will really feel that the Farhan' efforts are beyond appreciation. He completely toned his body, hit the gym to look like athlete and his close-ones are telling that he will put a massive weight if he  suddenly stop/reduce his workout he used to did during the movie making days. 

Also, the music is good and specially the dance moves are very unique and entertaining and are done with great passion which is reflected in Farhan' eyes throughout the movie. 

  • Raanjhanaa

 I am confused between Raanjhanaa and Bhaag Milkha bhaag: which movie to put first. For  me, they are both good  movies.

  • Ghanchakkar

This was the worst movie and I would not recommend this movie to anyone, even the idiots of very high level. I failed to understand the target audience of this movie and don't think if it suits to anybody' taste. After watching this movie which was incredible task in itself , I began to recapitulate all the similar worst movies and the first name that came to my mind is Mumbai express in which we ran out of the theater after bearing it for 60 minutes.
