Dhobi Ghat: Cerebral Entertainment At Its Best

Jan 21, 2011 09:22 AM Read

Arun caresses his canvass in an extremely self assured manner knowing well that he's creating a masterpiece. And that's exactly the sentiment you get about debutante director Kiran Rao who paints 'Dhobi Ghat' with colors of uncompromised brilliance. It is delicate storytelling at its best aided ...Read More

JUST A SERIES OF PLACID FRAMES

A few days back I watched the movie Dhobi Ghat on my laptop. And thank God for that because Dhobi Ghat is not a movie on which one can incur expenditure on expensive PVR tickets. It is also not a movie to be watched on TV with loads of advertisements in between brea...Read More

The perfectionist Aamir Khan has been very selective about his films & since almost a decade is yet to give us film that can be called bad, because his films has a common factor called – Quality, with capital Q. His latest offering ‘Dhobi Ghat’ written & directed by his wife Kiran Rao is...Read More

Out of the box, artistic, thoughtful

Aug 20, 2011 10:26 PM Read

Dhobi Ghat is an eccentric movie, not your commercial desperate to entertain drama. Its more about looking at people how they are, along with their flaws, insecurities and unexpected displays of kindness and wisdom, without overhyping any of them. Its start is bound to make you feel its a weird ...Read More

Dhobi Ghat (Mumbai Diaries) is a beautiful,mature debut by director Kiran Rao. It charts the story of four people whose diverse lives and background reflect the cultural eclecticism of Mumbai. Throughout the story, we are taken along by the persuasive,untrammelled story-telling by Rao, but only ...Read More

Mumbai beckons, but alas!

Feb 27, 2011 06:45 PM Read

Review on Dhobi Ghat. The movie is an excellent tribute to the merciless, cruel soul of the city of Mumbai. People come and go here, fall in and out of love, and die in its very lap, but Mumbai shows no remorse. One after another people fall for it and get attracted, only to be killed in cold...Read More

Dhobi ghat--life from different eyes

Feb 09, 2011 01:05 AM Read

One thing that really stands out in the movie is the simplicity and the charisma it has. It makes for a very engaging cinema and keeps you guessing as to what happens next. All the characters are well defined and play an important role. This one is truly for ---Brevity is the soul of wisdom. ...Read More

Dhobi Ghat

Feb 03, 2011 03:47 AM Read

Movies have always gratified the basic human curiosity to peek into the lives of other people; they are vehicles of visual pleasure, albeit in a voyeuristic way. The characters in Dhobi Ghat cater to the same standards of voyeurism to which we ourselves as viewers subscribe. The NRI girl want...Read More

Dhobi ghat.....well this was a different story, it was a film that did not really have much of a story to it. it runs for just over 1 hr 30 mins. there wasnt really any emotions in this film, you go in not knowing much about the plot and come out thinking where was the plot? this film is a quiet...Read More

WORTH WATCHING

Jan 31, 2011 02:59 AM Read

Very good 3--4 star. Only problem is that the word Bombay was mentioned. It would have been better if it was ref as Mumbai. Sure it wont hurt /affect Kiron Rao's sensibility /sensitivity. Why take panga wt shiv sens, mns. Any way surprisingly  nobody made any hue and cry , like in case  of 'w...Read More

Dhobi Ghaat: Worth a Watch???

Jan 31, 2011 01:36 AM Read

Kiran Rao’s debut as a director in Dhobi Ghaat is a good attempt at art cinema. The ouvre was well established in the 1980s by film makers like Benegal, Karnad, Nihalani and Sai Paranjape. Dhobi Ghaat is made in a diary format. It shows the lives of four individuals Arun(Aamir), a divorced pa...Read More

A Melancholic delight

Jan 27, 2011 10:38 AM Read

Having read the mixed bag of reviews of this film, I had decided to give it a miss. But Aamir had ensured that no other big releases affected chances of his better half's magnum opus and hence I had to grudgingly make it to watch this one. Right from the outset as the credits rolled in, the m...Read More

A survivor does not let a particular crisis define his life. Instead, he finds strong ‘anchor points' in life. “These anchor points could be a person, hobby or even some kind of aim in life, ” says Sharma. His eyes sparkling in his auburn face, his red turban a reminder of his rebellious spirit....Read More

A little more introspection, Kiran Rao!

Jan 26, 2011 07:29 PM Read

Ostensibly, "Dhobhi Ghat" is about 4 ordinary people, from different walks of life, experiencing Mumbai in their own unique way, frequently coming into contact, influencing each others experiences...changing each others lives. To this end, we have Arun (Aamir), a reclusive painter finding sol...Read More

A considerable amount of our population is seeing more hollywood movies and has very high expectation from a movie like Dhobi ghat. Guess why? Yes because its a ...Read More

This weekend I wasted my time on watching this piece of crap which is a direction by the great Kiran Rao....Now I understand that why is her hair like this. I pity Aamir for actually putting his efforts in such a cr@p made by his maniac wife. Now this is what I call domination by a wife... "B...Read More
