One and a half month of MOVIES.

So its been a month since I landed in Singapore… actually a month and a half almost…

And what have I been doing these last 45 days apart from neglecting my blog, applying for jobs and roaming around Singapore??

I have been watching movies…

So how many have I watched after coming here ?


That’s right SEVEN.

This is not counting the ones I watch at home… :D


So here’s my short and some certainly not sweet verdict of the movies are…

#^# Angels and Demons

Pretty good.. I mean it! I am not a huge fan of those movies that are based on books but this one I liked… of course the director has made major changes to the storyline in the book but that has worked for the movie in the bigger sense. I liked the acting of the villain and for most part it’s been portrayed authentically. I have read that book atleast 3-4 times and still I was hooked to the movie! So this one is a must-watch.

#^# The taking of Pelham 123

It was ok. Decent effort. And the dialogue exchange between Denzel Washington and John Travolta is very good. And John Travolta kicks ass with his role. I personally liked the movie. One-time watch.

#^# The ghost of the girlfriend’s past

Funny. Witty. Hilarious. Timepass. Good fun to watch when you have nothing to do and you want to while away your time.

#^# New York

Yes! The Hindi movie New York! Hmm.. the first one and half hours is nice to watch. Suspense and romance and songs and all that. But the ending was miserable. Clichéd. Dumb. And stupid. Really! I liked it purely because of Neil Nitin Mukesh and John Abraham. And also liked the way Irfan Khan acted. He was good. Not upto his usual standards but quite good.

#^# Ice Age 3

Good. Worth your money. Excellent animation and thoroughly enjoyable whatever age group you belong to.

#^# Duplicity

Waste of time. Though the ending kicked ass. But that’s just couple of scenes and that’s not worth your while to sit through the entire movie to watch that ending. You have better movies.

#^# Transformers – Revenge of the Fallen

Yes I am saving the best for the last. This one takes the cake. Of all time comedies. I swear! It was so funny that I got a stitch in my side watching it. After one point in the midst of all the dust and screws and nuts and bolts flying about you lose track of which machine is good and which one’s bad. The only thing you hear is clanging! Clang! Bam! Whoosh! And the sentiments… don’t even get me started. Put together the worst hindi movie you have seen with really senti Malayalam dialogues and some scences from classic tragic Tamil movies with all the gasping for life, and eyes fluttering open… you have transformers … I rest my case!

I also watched a couple of them on laptop but those were old and not quite new. But do watch Arundhati (telugu), Pokkiri (tamil or telugu), P.S. I love you, and My Sassy girl. The latter 2 are good watches.


  1. I love PS I lovE you!!! Never cried so much for any of the movies in the recent times!!

  2. Your verdict on transformers goes nicely with mine too.. :) Great that you are having a 'Movie' time in singapore now.. happy 'movie-ing'.. ;)

  3. wat a life....gemme a bloody job in s pore..even a janitor's would do...i'd work my free time as a gigolo

  4. Icae age 3 was good but somehow I feel part one takes the cake.

  5. Watched only IceAge3 in this list. Goes well with my age-group.. Slept mid-way (Cant blame the movie... blame the long rainy day @work) And it aint painful to sleep in a cinema, when you know it is a movie treat ;-)


Grahanam - A review!

It has been quite some time since I penned something on this blog, and even longer, since I wrote a movie review. But there is no good time ...
