Break Ke Baad (2010) **
by Sonal Sher | Nov 26, 2010 |
Here is a movie which says it as it is. Sure the parents are unrealistic (read uber cool) and extremely rich as has to be the case of happy love stories but other than that, the emotions are real. Frankly, ‘Break Ke Baad’ is a real love story where a couple actually deals with the one thing that people forget about. EMOTIONS.
Personally, noone is an angel or all sorted out always. People are stupid and you are lucky if you have someone sorted out with you during that time. In the movie Deepika plays Aliya, an impulsive, wild and somewhat commitment phobic girl who has been in a relationship for 10 and a half years with Abhay (Imran K). And even though these two fools are meant for each other, Aliya because of her own stupidity and immaturity lets it go thinking that Boyfriend Abhay chala gaya to kya hua, Friend Abhay to rahega. She forgets the simple fact that others have feelings too.
The movie deals with emotions quite maturely. These scene where Both of them meet after a break of one year, I was almost dying of suffocation hoping they would just kiss and make up instead of just staring into each other.
Imran Khan is endearing and believable. Deepika has somewhat improved her acting skills and was not irritating, which is a big step on her end. Lillete Dubey is like a breath of fresh air her punjabi aunty act, which she does to perfection. The songs are nice and not intruding. The dialogues are original and touching. I say,,,,forget about the beach house, parents and the over-purrrfect parent part, and ‘Break Ke Baad’ is a great rom-com.
Badmash Company (2010) **
I wonder if the word bad was derived out of badmash but well just something on top of my mind. Parmeet Sethi, who is mostly known as the Kuljeet of DDLJ, comes out with something decent with Badmash Company. The movie is about four young friends get together in 90's middle class Mumbai to start a company, Friends and co. What is their business? They steal. Steal what? Customs duty. Karan (Sahid Kapoor) has a bright brain which gets even brighter ideas which gets him fast cash with the help of his friends Zing (Meiyang Chang) and Chandu (Vir Das)…
Chance Pe Dance (2010) **
The movie opens with a song. No credits. Just a music video with Shahid Kapoor and Genelia D’Souza. It kinda tells you the entire movie is going to be about Shahid Kapoor, especially because of Genelia's akward dancing skills. The movie starts off with an introduction to Sameer Behl (Shahid Kapoor), a struggling actor in Mumbai who may not have the butter for his bread (quite literally) but he does have the latest wardrobe and the attitude to carry it off. A great dancer and quite talented as an actor all he is waiting for is a chance. Soon he meets a choreographer called Tina (Genelia D’Souza) and a chance meeting…
Ishqiya (2010) **
During the first few frames of the movie, you see Krishna (Vidya Balan) with her husband trying to keep him home with her. those are the moments that you see her as a wife in love with her husband and those are the moments that really shape the movie. The plot revolves around two small time thieves, Khalujan (Naseeruddin Shah) and Babban (Arshad Warsi) on the run from their boss, Mushtaq (Salman Shahid). They end up at Krishna's house, in Gorakhpur, looking for her husband only to find that he died in an accident some months back. Mushtaq, ends up…
