Funny thing is George Orwell never visited Soviet Union in his entire lifetime and whatever he wrote was based on western bourgeoisie propaganda and lies spread by Trotsky and his followers. For a country, that was in the wrapped in medieval aristocracy, illiteracy, poverty, disease, hunger and deat...h to a country that became so technologically advanced and made giant strides in social welfare in a matter of 3-4 decades, says a lot about gains of the Red Revolution. George Orwell's Animal Farm is no more a work of fiction and should be treated as such.Read More

Perhaps the most concise, to the point, review of a book. Atlas Shrugged is such a mediocre and monotonous read, that even Rand's die hard followers concede that 'It sucks BIG TIME'. I guess, there are two types of people in the world, those who havent read Atlas Shrugged and claim it is a masterpie...ce and those who have read it and consigned it back to the shelf or the bin long before the novel ends. Do not be discouraged by the low ratings of your review. All those who gave you lower ratings have not read the novel anyway. :)Read More

I just read your wonderful review on Mithun Chakraborty, who in my opinion is the most charismatic, versatile and talented actor in India. He carries no air about himself, keeps aloof in his own world and does a lot of social work, which I think is worthy of emulation by so-called top bollywood 'sta...rs'. My first touch with Mithun was with 1982 Disco Dancer, a cult classic of sorts. While the film critics panned Disco Dancer as a cheesy, low budget movie, no critic can explain as to why after almost a quarter of a century, the movie and its songs remain an engima. For those born in the seventies, Disco Dancer evokes a sense of nostalgia, which no other movie can. Maybe, i am making an overstatement, but thats what I feel and have known talking to people who have always professed a strange kind of love for the movie. Good review mate! PS: Dude, I was surprised, when you mentioned Wanted!! I thought I was the only living person n the planet who actually liked the movie :-) 'Rahi hoon main, kahan meri manzil?'Read More

Good review of the book. Though, I have not read the book myself, but I guess I have a fair knowldege of the German invasion of USSR (not Russia alone). Eversince, Hitler assumed power, Stalin knew, owing to Hitler's immense dislike for communists and leftists, that he would invade Soviet Union soon...er or later. In order to stop Hitler from crushing the world's first socialist nation and exploiting it for future, Stlain made a brilliant tactical move to block or say delayed the attack, by signing the Non-aggression pact of 1939. This gave Stalin enough time to arm the defense wings of USSR's Red Army to face the onslaught of German war machine 'Werhmacht'. The so-called 'Purges' and the allegation that best of the army commander were arrested and executed was because of suspicion has very credible standing. many officers in the Red Army were czar loyalists or sympathsizers. There was immense possiblilty that these commanders would have surrendered before the German troops and would have fought against the Soviet state, just like what Chechens and western Ukrainians did later, ie fighting for the Nazis. Yes, there were instances of innocents being tortured and executed, but later when this was discovered, the parliament itself took severe actions against offending officers. For example, Ezhov was a considered a brilliant officer, but when the reports of his excesses were found true, he was tried and executed. I would say, the biggest contribution of defeating Nazi Germany goes to USSR. Not only they fought with 90% of the total German war machine, they were able to drive them back to Berlin. Allied, no matter whatever they show in Hollywood propaganda movies, did not participate fully till the end of 1944, when the beach landings happened and by that time WWII was almost over, with Germans lying low on morale and resources. The supreme sacrifice of 25 million Soviet citizens and Red Army soldiers saw the end of Nazi/Fascist plans in Europe. To be contd....Read More

This is a nice hilarious review on one of the most over-rated, over hyped film buffoon of our times....Ladies and Gentlemen, Emraan 'The Monkey Face' Hashmi. Really, I do not know, why he is being hyped so much in the media. Take it from me, the guy is a monkey face and I am sure 90% of the people w...ould agree with me. Serial Kisser??? huh? Just because he got to kiss women in films made by Bhatt Camp and I am sure these scenes were deliberately put in to satiate this monkey's lip locking fetish with the so-called hot women of the industry.

As a serious movie-goer, you have given an impeccable review, that is worth reading atleast more than once and I enjoyed reading your review. The only thing I hated about this movie was its mythical characterization and the underlying political and racial subtext. Gerard Butler's hamming and dialogu...edelivery reminded me of Sunny Deol's Indian and Gadar. :-D Do film-makers of 300 want us to beleive that Persians brought Frankestien looking monsters and Battle Rhinos with them, when they invaded Greece? I gave it one star, because that is the lowest rating I can give the movie....sadly it doesnt even deserve a single star.Read More

Reading your review was a pleasure feast for mind. I think, on this movie blog, there are clearly two groups, one for and the other ones against it. Like it or not, those who appreciate this movie, are either ignorant of history and facts or just completely naïve, to believe a silly propaganda ...war movie. The movie tries to establish a few myths about Sparta, owing allegiance to its political masters. Here are a few facts, that people should read before they call this movie “great feast” or “the best movie ever made”. I laugh, when people talk about Spartan concept of “freedom” and “civility” portrayed in the film. 1. Sparta was a fascist state, where the all the citizens were required to be soldiers. 2. New born but sick infants were put to death. 3. Spartans practiced slavery and every Spartan kept retinue of slaves, which were called “Helots”. 4. Homosexuality was prevalent and it was encouraged among the boys, so that they do not turn effeminate from coming in contact with women. 5. Every year, they had a festival called “Crypteia”, where the young Spartans graduated into “adulthood” after the ritual killings of unarmed Helots. Surely, Spartans were very brave indeed. 6. Leonidas and his men, died for their “freedom” and not for individuals. Their freedom to rule, massacre and oppress the slaves. 7. Persians, were not really defeated in their battles against Greeks. Persians were successful in capturing Athens and Thebes. Many Greek allies also fought against Spartans along side the Persians. 8. Persians were the first know people, to abolish slavery and encode human rights. For those who do not know anything about it, try googling “Cyrus Cylinder”. These are just a few facts. Chew on that!

'Zindagi kuch nahin, dard hain pyass hain' - Krishna, Disco Dancer (1982) Mithun Chakraborty is undoubtely a mass phenomenon. His perfomances far exceed the best perfomances of the current stalwarts of the Hindi cinema. I would not compare Amitabh and Mithun with each other, as both represent ...two mighty peaks, each has its own independent identity and independent persona. While, Amitabh is likened by the urban masses for his old age and sophistication. Mithun on the other hand has been neglected as a 'pariah' in the mainstream Bollywood industry. Not that Bollywood produces standard class of cinema, it is just that they manage to put in more money to make their movies more glitzy and pompous, otherwise people know what Bollywood is really upto. Anyway, it is needless to count his achievements and awards that he has won. I wish he does less of that B-grade stuff and works with those people who really know how to trap the energies of power house he is in the most efficient way. His perfomance in Guru, no matter, how much his screen presence was cut off in the final editing, it remains a fact, was awesome. Had not Mani Ratnam snapped his scenes, he would have walked away with all the honors. I wish him all the best for the years ahead and I am more than optimistic, that we gonna see him soon in more challeneging and powerful roles in future. Read More

Is this serial based on the 'Vayam Rakshamah' (We Protect) written by Acharya Chatursen Shastri? Vayam Rakshamah is an exciting thriller based on Ramayana, that has been told with Ravan as the central figure. I recommend everyone to read that book. The only problem is, that narration is, though in H...indi, is heavily Sanskritized, that may go over the head of some readers (me included as well).Read More

Well, people have always two views about Pulp Fiction. They either HATE IT or LOVE IT!!! There is no 'in between' view. Though, I liked Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs, because that movie made sense, about 6 guys involved in a failed hiest and they try to figure out who the 'rat' is in between them. Thou...gh, I watched Pulp fiction a couple of time, but I couldnt change my opinion about it. I would not go on to say I hate it, but it was somewhere in between. Similarly, Robert Rodriguez's movies are also action oriented, actions without brains that is. The only thing I like about Rodriguez is, he inspires you to go out and make your own film. His debut movie 'El Mariachi' was really a good film with a good concept, but Desperado and Once Upon a Time in Mexico did not have the soul of the 'El Mariachi'. I am not against depiction of violence in the movies, but if that violence is accompanied by a message, then it violence becomes more acceptable. I would color the screen red, if I were to make a movie on Ashoka. That violence will bring home the fact that war and destruction carried out in the name of capturing territories, newer lands and satifying one's hegemonistic perversions, is all futile. If the violence is necessary to bring a revolutionary change in the society, it should be depicted. But with that PF stuff, I do not make any sense out of it. PF is an OK movie, nothing much to talk about.Read More

Thank you for your comment, Amit. Even before I saw the movie, there were voices for and against this film. I decided to watch it myself and I was disgusted. The funniest scene, which incidently people have praised as one of the best scenes, is when a young Leonidas encounters a wolf on a snowy nigh...t. He is shown wearing only a loincloth!!!! Anyway, it is said to be a celluloid representation of comic book. Someone said about 300, that if you liked the movie, you are either a 10-14 year old kiddo or just a plain immature adult.Read More
