Quote:Seriously If you are really planning to make an absolute "no brain needed to watch" kind of an action movie, then make something like The Guradians Of The Galaxy. You will not need much to understand it but at the same time if you are an action fan just keep watching Dev Batista Power slamming all. Besides the graphics, audio and camera visuals definitely makes some wonder.
But even the action in Jackson was difficult and impossible to digest.
Otherwise make great movies of various genres like A Wednesday, Dil Chahta Hain, Kahaani. These will remain to be my favorite movies for life.
Life is all about perspective. The sinking of the Titanic was a miracle to the lobsters in the ship's kitchen.

I actually like Abhishek Bachhan in general. Guru and Bluffmaster were superb. He is quite different from his daddy. Have you seen them face to face in KBC - his mannerisms are unique. If he's happy with his low output (one per year or so), then so be it.

Why, you didn't understand the movie the first time? ... ...

Quote:I had done the same with Dil Chahta Hain , Scent Of A Woman , The Devil's Advocate , A Wednesday , Taxi Driver , God Father Series, The Shawshank Redemption , Forrest Gump , The Matrix series, Saving Private Ryan ,Raging Bull ,Gladiator ,All the President's Men ,The Lord of the Rings series, Braveheart , The Deer Hunter, Jab We Met , Masoom ,Swades , Chak De India , Kaahani, Taare Zameen Par, 3 idiots , Bhueter Bhobishyot , 22 she Shrabon to name a few. Some movies you can watch over and over again and still continue to love them...
Quote:Yes Brother .. I have an odd collection of 4000 movies or may be more(I have lost count of them now, and I keep buying them still). I am a movie buff and a book worm at the same. The list is just nothing compared to what I have or seen.
Usually I have never liked a movie after I have read the book which inspired it.
Exactly. The book is always so much detailed. Very few filmmamkers can do justice to the depth of the characters as they also have their own limitations ( time, commercial formula, etc)
3 idiots was better in that way, but can't say the same for One night at call center ( Chetan Bhagat)
Game of Thrones (HBO series) is coming off well and is grand compared to the novels which are in depth.
I loved the book 'Papillon" but the movie based on it does not do it any justice.
Talking about Chetan Bhagat, his recent books, especially the last two (Revolution 2020 , Half Girlfriend) seems to be direct screen write up for a movie. They would not need to change much on the script if they plan on making a movie out of it. Too filmy, like running through the streets to New York on a cold Night against time to find your beloved. I could not even go to the Comcast office without a proper GPS and an address in Nashville,TN and this guy went all they way to New York to find a girl with no knowledge other than her name . One Night At Call Center was far more realistic in terms of the emotions of the two and the way they did act upon.
Anyways would love to see someone make a movie out of the Shiva Trilogy by Amish. Hope they do justice to the book though.

Chetan Bhagat is progressively declining:
5 point someone,
3 mistakes of my life,
1night at Call center
1/2 Girlfriend !
What next -
a 'Quarter' of Whisky ?
Agreed, it was totally un-realistic. He has become an official screen writer for bollywood.
Amishs' trilogy is entertaining because it caters to mytholgy - fiction, but again it is also filmy if you observe it closely.
All these IIM pass-outs are smart enough to keep their options open. If the book does'nt click, sell the copyright to the producer
Quote:Filmy definitely, but at least for mythology you will know that there would be some unrealistic stuff coming as a package. And it was good way to relate almost all those mythology stuff that we hear about Shiva to a more human side. I will give that to Amish. Again that would make it a more difficult for his next book to be a success. He has to overdo what he has already done. One reason sequels of most movies often fail.
Quote:Right right.. But that's what they are taught at in IIM, and they are good at it. No wonder getting is not everyday's and everybody's job.
