Guzaarish Movie Review

Written by

Guzaarish is an art museum. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is the perfectly chiseled curator and Hrithik Roshan an almost statue. And this once, it’s not his acting I’m complaining about, the script demands him to stay put. You are watching them etched in many exotic, exquisite paintings frame after frame. So, what if the very basis of the story is pointless and there are gaping holes which are difficult to digest.

This episode of Wogma review four movies - Aakrosh, Do Dooni Char, Knock Out and Crook. Aakrosh is about a flaw in our society, but completely hidden in the midst of the action. All negatives are completely overshadowed by the brilliant portrayal of the futile and toothless system that prevails in some parts of the country.Do Dooni char represents a pleasing movie about stories from the lives of the middle class, a generation gap where the children want to move up to the next level in socio-economic ladder.

BJP is not happy with Congress. Nothing new! However, this time it is accusing congress of stealing its identity online.

Other topics include launching of Playbook, and IE9.
