Reviewed Sorry Bhai Movie

Dec 10, 2008 01:04 AM 2508 Views

At the very outset, let me confess that I love to watch films based on complex relationships and those that deal with breaking social taboos. And mostly those films in which Chitrangdha Singh alluringly flaunts her magical Smita-Patil-smile. So I loved Onir's third directorial venture, 'Sorry Bh...Read more

Me: So Ramu ji! This whole film turns out to be a political reply to all those opposing the Bachchan family. To get further into this….. Amitabh: Aiihh!! Stop!! You are going too much in-depth. Why can’t you ask how much of a good response we are getting for the film… how it’s been appreciated by m...any people? Why can’t you ask such questions? Aiihh!!!! I hesitated to respond, but somehow mustered my courage…… Me: That’s because, I don’t ask stupid questions. Then I heard the man in the shadow speak: Tho, (as a journalist), tumhara jinda rakne ka faiyda kya hai? Having said that, he came forward (to visibility). Yes, Now I recognized him. It was Mr. Abhishek Bachchan. And then, he pulled out a gun and pointed at me. Amitabh gave a scary stare, Ramu bowed down his head to continue his slumber and Aish lifted the tea cup to take a sip. And the background score stammered everlastingly….. ‘Govinda! Govinda! Govinda!........’ And I was shot::::::: ‘jhhiskaaaaaaaaaammmmm’ ===== 0oo@oo0 ============ I suddenly woke up in my bed. Oops! ==== @=====@============= The above review is written to be in sync with the film: half-baked, mostly meaningless and disappointing. My sincere apologies to those who have felt bad at some points of this write-up! ==== @=====@============= Read More

The three of them looked at each other and looked at me with an obvious pride of having known the identity of the assassin; and moreover, me not knowing it! Ramu: That is exactly the third real scenario. Me: Pardon me! I don’t get you! Aish: What does Shahrukh wear in his film Don? Me: Gloves! ...Ramu: What does he carry with him? Me: A briefcase! Ramu: Or a bag! Me: Ok! I get the clues! Though I sounded to be convinced, I heard Amitabh. Amitabh: What is the prize money amount in Shahrukh’s latest flop show? Me: 5 crores. Amitabh gets a naughty smile on his face as Ramu takes over….. Ramu: Exactly the amount which the assassin asks for to kill Shankar Nagre. I raise my doubt. Me: But why Shahrukh? Ramu: In a nut-shell, the story is something like this. Amitabh maintained his stardom for such a long time and wanted to pass the mantle to Abhishek. But the opposing Congress party has hired Shahrukh to castle Abhishek and now, Abhishek is no where left in the game. So Amitabh has taken Aish into his family to maintain stardom, until his grandson grows up to conquer Bollywood. And that’s how Shahrukh’s character is part of Sarkar Raj. Aish with her finger pointing me, warned: Mind you, this entire Shahrukh thing must be off the records. Me: Yes, Ma’m! Read More

Me: Having watched the film last night, I sensed the story having parallelism to the real scenario surrounding the Bachchan family. Is it true or was I reading too much between the lines? Ramu smiles for the first time, that too, a proud smile. Ramu: You are right! Me: Can you please state the s...cenarios which were depicted in the film? Ramu: One is very obvious: Somji, simulating Raj Thakerey! Me: Yes sir! The actor who played the role was brilliant! He was a perfect antagonist in the first half. Almost similar to Mr. Kay Kay Menon’s role in Sarkar! Ramu: Yes! The actor is Rajesh Shringarpore! He is a very good stage-actor. Me: Then, the next real scenario? Ramu: Guess! Me: Congress? Ramu: Yup! Rao-saab’s character represented the Congress party, which has been against the Bachchan’s for very long. Me: Sarkar during his self-proclamation, utters ‘maine apni jindagi, apni sharthon pe jiya hai’, meaning that Subhash Nagre lived his life according to his own terms. Then in that case, isn’t it contrasting to show Subhash Nagre relying on Rao-saab’s blessings? Ramu: Hmm.. a good catch! We somehow missed this, but our intension was to show that the Bachchan family was close to the Gandhi family before they parted ways owning to political friction. Me: Ramu ji! A personal question related to the Congress party! Do you think Mr. Mohan Das Karamchand Gandhi, also known as Mahatma Gandhi, is the man behind the ongoing, and probably an everlasting, political chaos in our country? Ramu: No comments! Me: Ok! The next…. Before Ramu could answer that, I changed the question. Me: By the way, there is this assassin in the film who wears gloves, carries a bag and is hired to kill Shankar Nagre. Why wasn’t his face shown to the audience? Now Aish pops up in between with her thin-like-her voice. Aish: Because Shahrukh’s fans may not accept it! I was startled! Me: What?Read More

Me: Ok sir! I will move ahead……. In your blog, you have mentioned that you want your characters to be subtle and restrained in their expressions; and that you hate people who lose their restraint. So you hate charaters which cry often, like in our mushy Bollywood melodramas! Ramu: Yes! In my opin...ion, such crying and weeping films are made by gay people. Me: But in the last 15 minutes of the film, at the end of every dialogue which Amitabh utters, a tear is shown to flow from Aish’s eyes….. a dialogue, a tear…. a dialogue, a tear! Why the change in treatment? Anything to do with the association with Ekta Kapoor! Or is it anything to do with your own gay shades? He tried to be as restrained as possible, trying very hard to prove his manhood! Ramu: Nope. It’s just that Aish is a woman and women can cry. But men shouldn’t. He who cries is not a man. Me: Then in the last 5 mins of the film, Amitabh too lets down multiple flows of unstopping tears. Does it signify his loss of manhood? Now Amitabh got agitated and growled in his masculine heavy barritone. Amitabh: Aiihh!!!! This fellow writes something in his blog, and now you drag me into it? Aiihh!!! Me: That isn’t my concern, sir! I just wanted to know how different is the weeping shown in Karan Johar films, compared to that shown in Ramu ji’s films. Ok! Anyway, I will move to my next question… Read More

Hi Sweety, Thats a gud review from your end. But I didnt like the film because it wasnt bold enough. It was very defensive. RGV was probably scared of the public fury, had he been more bold. I feel, KANK was bolder than this one. So I would recommend KANK any day, than this film. Anyway, its my ...opinion again!!!! Please do read my review and rate it (fairly :D) ~PurneshRead More
