Ki & Ka – A Topsy Turvy thinking by Director

Ki & Ka – Hindi Feature film, yet another beautiful movie from Balki. Topsy-Turvy is the best word to describe one of the most talented directors of Indian Cinema. Different Concept, unique approach, perfect casting, soothing music, eye-catching visuals, suitable dialogs and an equalent sprinkling of humor and emotion all over the movie. If you can see all these in a single movie, then it is Dir. Balki’s creation.

Ki & Ka is a cleverly chosen sensitive subject. The plot is all about the topsy-turvy thinking of the relationship ( so-called traditional / conventional practice ). The way he handled the script was amazing. Kareena Kapor Khan & Arjun Kapoor did their best for this movie. Swaroop Sampat(Kareena’s mom) role was adorable. Though this movie has got mixed reviews both negative and neutral, I felt that Balki handled it very well by not making it as more emotional or more of an advice or preaching kind of movie. He touched most sensitive parts of the movie very lightly, as he wanted to get connected to the younger generation.He just wanted to break the perceptions  like Women has to do all the house chores and homemaking and Men have to earn and has the responsibility to protect the family. If handling and making a home is an art, then why its totally dependent on Women ?

Few other things I like in this movie are romance between Ki & Ka, Ka & Ki’s Mom relationship, Ki’s house railway and train interior ( though it looked dramatic or set kind of thing ), visuals & Ilayaraja’s background score.

Apart from the critics and reviews about this movie, I feel all men and women have to watch this movie once and this will surely bring a different perception of seeing their living style. I liked this movie very much and I will recommend it to my friends to watch it once 🙂


Hancock the (Super)Hero…!

HANCOCK –  A superhero who doesn’t care about his public image or worry about the consequences of his actions, though he saved several lives for years , he was hated for the damages he made to the city. At one point Hancock starts working with a public relations officer to make his image good.

The movie was released after lots of sensor cut. A full length entertaining comedy flick. As usual a will smith movie which implies human life is better than anything ( may be a superhero or robot or alien etc.,) . Not much impressive but a good entertainer. Will smith scores good in this movie. apart from smith “Jason Bateman” the public relations officer attracts everyone. We got to see another super women “Charlize Theron” PRO’s wife and told as a wife of Hancock several decades back. Still lots of confusions with her character in this movie….!

This is a normal movie and not as usual superhero movie. The movie opened with great promise, offering a solid action sequence blended with a nice character study but nothing was met in this movie. But Smith makes you love him, from the moment he wakes up on a bus bench, surly and hungover, and snaps crabbily at the little kid who roused him with the simple call to arms, during anger management in the prison, while testing the PRO’s wife in her kitchen about her power,while saving a police women, while getting angry with a playing kid, in all his super heroic scenes, his reactions when someone calls him Asshole etc., I just love Will Smith for whatever he is.

This was given a big image bcos of Will Smith. Seems that Peter berg, the Director of this movie got inspired by some comic super hero and started doing this movie. Lots of illogical things go with this movie. Anyways Smith took it in a better way. Wish this movie should not have a sequel.

A good movie only for Will Smith Lovers.  Just waiting for his next movie “Seven Pounds” and this will defenitly be a exellent movie. A movie deals about a  man who change the lives of seven strangers.

Light up the Darkness

I am Legend …!

Again a will smith movie. Again a movie with some virus related stories. Performance of will smith was really good. Almost he is the only actor in the movie.And for the last twenty minutes we can see a girl(Alice braga) and a boy.

” The last man in this earth is not alone “. This is the tag line of the movie. He lives as the last man in the city.

His way of expressing emotions was really excellent. Few scenes impressed me are,

when he is speaking to a lady doll in the video library , when he speaks with his dog , when he says about a singer in the movie , when he narrates the “Shrek” dialog , when he says there is no god and in the last scene when he accepts there is GOD , when he is playing golf standing on an air craft , when he was testing a virus infected lady, etc.,

a quote in the movie ..he says about the music and singer and why he still remains in the city , hope I remember it completely …

He had this idea. It was kind of a virologist idea. He believed that you could cure racism and hate… literally cure it, by injecting music and love into people’s lives. When he was scheduled to perform at a peace rally, a gunman came to his house and shot him down. Two days later he walked out on that stage and sang. When they asked him WHY – He said, “The people, who were trying to make this world worse… are not taking a day off… how can I ? Light up the darkness

Simply a good movie for Will smith fans.Waiting for his movie Time Share. Hope to be released in earlier 2008.
