Small towns are not just beating metropolitan cities in online shopping. Live-in relationships and premarital sex are also getting common in small cities. Shuddh Desi Romance deals with the story of a commitment phobic live-in couple in Jaipur in a reasonably comic style.
B. A. Pass – A clean attempt to make a realistic film based on a male prostitute’s life.
Dhanush’s Hindi debut Ranjhanaa is not the love story of a “HERO” but of a common man – an average Joe – a guy next door… who never got his love reciprocated. A must watch for its unusual script, excellent direction and sterling performance by this South Indian actor
As my friend and co-blogger for delhi-fun-dos.com keeps saying “Man at his best is god”. This is probably what this film is trying to say. A film with a message. Watch it for awesome script and great performances.
Three desperate friends (Vir Das / Kunal Khemu / Anand Tiwari) attend the rave party and became targets of hundreds of zombies. It’s no a “scare the shit out of you” horror film. Infact the marriage of comedy with horror is praiseworthy.
This film has been brought together to celebrate hundred years of Indian cinema. An amazing anthology of four short films – Karan Johar (Ajeeb Dastaan Hain Yeh); Dibakar Banerjee (Star); Zoya Akhtar (Sheila Ki Jawaani) and Anurag Kashyap (Murabba).
Rohan Sippy’s latest “Nautanki Saala” is a new age entertainer. It’s an impressive film and left us with a smile on our faces. The storyline is far from a typical bollywood potboiler and minus any formula RomComs keep using again and again. It’s a feel good film made for audience with some gray matter and patience.
Jolly LLB is the story of Jolly-The lawyer from Meerut who wants to find his place under the sun. The film does not try to be anything at all apart from being an entertaining all age weekend evening watch.
A story of three friends (whats this bollywood fixation of 3 guy friends…) and Cricket and Gujarat and a lot of other things. The film had its own charm and we liked it but what was perhaps missing was the soul. It failed to become what it set out to be – a great film rather than an honest film.
All good things come to an end and so is Filmbooth – First Cut series. (I heard they are just taking a break. I hope they really mean it. I loved Filmbooth First Cut screenings of short films. Hope to see them back with a collection of some great short films real soon)
The selection of movies for their last edition of First Cut was a mixed bag. As one of the organizers said – It had something for everybody.
