Movie Talk : Brothers

Since I need to go to the bank to submit my study loan application,I decided to watch Brothers because this movie still running in the cinema. Been reading Brother's review for the past 2 weeks and most of people on my twitter timeline give a double thumbs up for this movie. Watch it alone because I always love watching movie at cinema alone so that I can focus more.

First half of this movie,I cried like a baby. I swear it's so emotional and there's so many heartbreaking scenes so yeah my tears flow like a waterfalls in Baahubali. The second half is more on power packed action scenes,but I'm still crying. Brothers already collected 78 crore in domestic market and 106 crore worldwide collection.

Directed by: Karan Malhotra
Music by: Ajay-Atul
Starring by: Akshay Kumar,Sidharth Malhotra,Jackie Shroff,Jacqueline Fernandez,Shefali Shah
Release date: 14 August 2015

Brothers is the official remake of Hollywood movie "Warrior". David (Akshay Kumar) and Monty Fernandes (Sidharth Malhotra) are brothers from another mother. David is a son of alcoholic Gary (Jackie Shroff) and Maria (Shefali Shah) while Monty is Gary's son with Sara,woman he has affair with. After Sara's death, Gary took Monty to stay with him and kind hearted Maria and David accept Monty like their own family. Gary can't control his drinking habit accidentally killed Maria during Monty's birthday after they're having an argument regarding Gary's affair. David who witnessed that incident can't forgive his father and accused Monty is the reason his mother died.

A few years later Gary being release from prison after serving his sentence. Only Monty who fetch him at the prison. David who become a physics teacher married with Jenny (Jacqueline Fernandes). They have a daughter named Maria who suffered with weak kidney and heart disease. They're been facing financial problem since Maria needs regular treatment at the hospital.

Like his father, Monty is a street fighter too. David being expelled from school because the principal found out that he joined street fight to earn extra money for his daughter. When Mr Briganza announced that he organizes Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) competition "Right To Fight" at India, both Monty and David worked so hard to put themselves in that competition. Monty being trained by his father while David being trained by Pasha Ali,son of former MMA fighter.

 Monty and David's training to enter R2F

Both of them managed to become the contestants,together with other MMA fighters across the globe. The final round between Fernandes brothers become a huge talk across India. At the end of the fight,David win the competition and forgive his brother and father.

blood vs blood

My opinion about Brothers:
1) Best performance ever by Sid. He's working so hard for this movie and it really shows in every scene. He portray his anger,frustration,sadness,love brilliantly in this movie. He and Akki equally shine in Brothers

2) Akki proves that he can do action and romance at the same time. It's amazing to watch a guy at his age still able to do all action scenes by himself.

3) Jackie and Shefali deserve a credit for their acting. Jackie is so natural and he's the reason why I cried like a baby. Shefali never disappoints me with her acting. She only appear in flashback scene but left with such a huge impact. I wish she has more scenes in this movie.

4) Jac Fernandez plays a mother for the first time and I think she's good,but like Shefali, she doesn't appear much.

5) The soundtracks are good. Brothers Anthem and Sapna Jahan are the winner. You can feel the fighting spirit when Brothers Anthem is playing.

6) The item song Mera Naam Mary is unnecessary,waste of time and eye torture for 5 minutes. For movie like Brothers, item song is not needed. 

7) The duration of 2 hours and 30 minutes are little long and draggy for me. 2 hours should be fine.

8) I wish they extend the ending and show what happen to David's daughter.

Overall,7/10 for Brothers. I haven't seen the original Warriors so I can't compare which one is better. If you love both Sid and Akki,do watch this movie.

Movie Talk : Bajrangi Bhaijaan

To be honest, Bajrangi Bhaijaan is not on my must watch movie list for 2015. I'm not a big fan of Salman Khan or Kareena Kapoor, so yeah that's the reason. But after I watched the trailer, I changed my mind. The trailer looked promising and the child actor Hashaali Malhotra grabbed my attention. Then I promised to myself that I'm going to watch this movie,but with decent expectation,because Kabir Khan's previous movie Ek Tha Tiger,failed to impress me.

Bajrangi Bhaijaan managed to enter 100 crore club in 3 days only. I'm not suprise because when it comes to The Khans movie, 100 crore in less than a week is a normal scenario. Until this date, Bajrangi Bhaijaan already entered 200 crore club with 256++ crore box office collection in India.

I managed to watch this movie last Sunday with Didiey. And here's the saddest part. In Malaysia, people rarely watch hindi movie in cinema. So we pretty confident that the tickets will be available until the showtime. Surprise surprise we failed to get a ticket because it's sold out and selling fast for the whole day. Weird scenario in Malaysia,second week of screening and tickets are sold out. Almost cried at the cinema because we've been planning to watch BB since monday. But finally, we checked at other cinema and got ourselves the tickets. THANK GOD!

Directed by: Khabir Khan
Music by: Pritam
Starring by: Salman Khan,Harshaali Malhotra,Nawazzudin Siddiqui,Kareena Kapoor Khan
Release date: 17 July 2015

Shahida (Harshaali Malhotra) a mute girl from Pakistan come to India with her mother to pray for her speech to be returned at Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya's Dargah in Delhi. On their way back to Pakistan, Shahida gets lost and separated from her mother and can't pass the border. Alone in foreign country, Shahida boards a freight train, reaching KurukshetraIndia. At Kurukshetra she meet Pawan Kumar Chaturvedi or also known as Bajrangi (Salman Khan) and follows him.

Bajrangi assumes that Shahida is hindu and separated from her parents. And since Shahida is not able to speak, she can't tell Bajrangi where she comes from. Bajrangi takes initiative to guess which city she comes from,by mentioning all cities in India during their jorney back to Bajrangi's house at Delhi. He asks his girlfriend Rasika's (Kareena Kapoor) permission to let Munni (name that Bajrangi gives to Shahida) stays with them until they find her parents.

One day Bajrangi found out that Munni is a muslim from Pakistan,due to incident when he found Munni is eating chicken at their neighbour's house,Munni enters the mosque to pray and Munni is clapping her hand and kiss the tv when Pakistan won the cricket tournament. 

He determine to send Munni back to her country,but because of she doesn't has a passport,she can't apply the visa. The travel agent said that he can help with other way but he lied to Bajrangi. Instead of sending Munni back to Pakistan, he sells Munni to brothel's owner. Luckily Bajrangi come to rescue and he decided to send Munni back to her home on his own.

one of the best scene in BB

They illegally entered Pakistan via secret tunnel,almost caught by a local police and become most wanted person in Pakistan because the local authority think he's a Indian spy. The local journalist Chand Nawab (Nawazzudin Siddiqui) helps Bajrangi to locate Munni's village. During their journey, Chand Nawab records a video. Finally they manage to send Munni back to her home but Bajrangi has been caught by the police. To help him, Chand Nawab upload the video of their journey on Youtube and grabs people's attention towards the situation.

At the end of the story, the police release Bajrangi and let him go back to India,and Shahida/Munni is able to speak.

What I like about Bajrangi Bhaijaan:
1. Kabir Khan's dialogue is brilliant. When it comes to the funny part, we laughed so hard. When it comes to the emotional part, we cried. I'm emotionally attached to the story. One of the best hindi movie that I ever since in my life. 

2. Bajrangi and Munni's character are beautifully written. For me,this is Salman Khan's best performance ever. Instead of doing action movies, I prefer Sallu in romantic/comedy films. Couldn't find a word to describe how amazing he's in BB. He deserves to be nominate in Best Actor category next year. Let's talk about Harshaali Malhotra. I want to thank Kabir Khan for introducing Harshaali to us. This little girl is only 7 years old,but her talent is sooooo big even the senior actress can't act like her. It's not easy to act as mute person. Her facial expression and body language are mindblowing. I will be upset if she doesn't win best debut actress next year.

3. Nawazuddin Sidduqui never failed to impress me. He always nail every character that been given to him. He's funny and at the same time,give a huge impact in this movie.

4. The soundtracks. Pritam is one of my favourite music director,and he never failed to deliver a beautiful soundtracks in every film that he's working in. Tu Jo Mila is the winner. Enough said. I cried many times.

5. The cinematography is so beautiful and I think I wanna pack my bag and go to Kashmir now.

What I don't like about Bajrangi Bhaijaan:
1. The female lead for this movie should be Harshaali instead of Kareena because she has the least screen time and doesn't give any impact. Sorry not sorry. For me,it would be better if she's not in this movie.

Afterall,10/10 for Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Still running at the cinema so go and watch this movie.

Movie Talk : Minions

I love minions! These creatures are adorable. Kalau boleh bela,nak 3 ekor untuk kemas bilik,masak and tolong mama pack barang yang customer order. I watched Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2 several times sebab lawak gila,and they decided to come out with the prequel,memang seronok la sebab nak tahu minions ni datang dari mana and how they exist.

Disebabkan bulan puasa tak elok bazirkan masa pergi cinema,maka sis tengok Minions via online je. Gigih la hadap quality tak berapa elok tu. Sebab ramai cakap best la kelakar nak mampos la memang tak boleh tunggu hdrip ke dvdrip ke brrip dah. Malangnya,indah khabar dari rupa. Biasa je Minions ni. Tak tahu la sama ada aku tengah takde mood or cerita ni memang tak kelakar sangat. Aku yang jenis mudah terhibur ni tak gelak sangat pun,just sengih je.

Directed by: Pierre Coffin and Kyle Banda
Starring by: Pierre Coffin,Sandra Bullock,Jon Hamm,Michael Keaton
Release date: 18 June 2015 (Malaysia), 10 July 2015 (USA)

Minions are small creature that evolve from single cell organism sampai la besar yang macam korang tengok dalam movie tu. Memula dorang hidup dalam laut,then bila dah besar dorang naik ke darat. Their life goal satu je,to become the servant for the most bad ass villain in the world. From becoming a servant to dinasour,caveman,Egyptian pharaoh,dracula to Napoleon finally minions pindah ke Artic. Malangnya dekat Artic takde orang jahat maka depress la rakyot minions sebab takde life and tak tahu nak buat apa.

Kevin,antara minion yang cerdik finally decide untuk move from the Artic sebab nak cari boss baru. He is joined by Stuart and Bob,walaupun 2 ekor ni tak berguna mana. Berhari mendayung dorang sampai ke New York,dimana dorang dapat tahu there's an event called Villain Con held in Florida. Dengan tak malu tumpang one family yang kebetulan nak pergi Villain Con jugak,the minions manage to work with Scarlett Overkill,the most bad ass villain ever.

Scarlett brings them to her house at London,and assign them to steal the crown that belongs to Queen Elizabeth. Dengan bantuan senjata husband Scarlett,dorang hampir berjaya nak curi crown tu. Malangnya crown yang memula dipamer dekat London Tower dipindahkan ke istana. Minions dengan tak berape bijak pi curi crown dalam kereta queen,tapi gagal. Polis kejar dorang. In the process, Bob crash lands on the mythical Sword in the Stone, where he pulls the sword Excalibur out easily to defend himself. Elizabeth is then removed from the throne, and Bob is crowned as the new King of the United Kingdom.

Scarlett rasa dikhianati,maka dia pi serang minions dekat istana. Minions berpegang pada janji and bagi crown tu dekat Scarlett,Scarlett sumbat dorang dalam jail. However they managed to escape and nak mintak maaf dekat Scarlett. They went to Scarlett's coronation,tapi terjatuhkan chandelier atas Scarlett before dia ditabalkan jadi queen. Angry Scarlett arahkan orang2 dia bunuh the minions. Bob and Stuart kena tangkap,Kevin menyorok and pergi Scarlett's husband's lab and accidentally trigger the machine yang buat dia jadi gergasi. Kevin pijak the rest of the villain and Scarlett's house.

At the same time, the rest of the minions at the Artic terbunuh boss baru dorang,and decide to move from there,and terlanding dekat Britain. Kevin dapat selamatkan Bob and Stuart,and bunuh Scarlett and her husband.

Elizabeth jadi queen lagi sekali,and bagi hadiah dekat the minions sebab nak balas jasa. Tetiba Scarlett yang rupanya tak mati lagi datang rampas the crown,tapi kena tembak ais dengan Gru versi budak. Gru curi the crown. The minions nampak Gru as their new boss and work for him. Hasil kerja tu uols boleh tengok in Despicable Me.

What I like about Minions:

1. First 15 minutes of the story and the ending. That's the best part in this movie.

2. What I learned from Minions, in order to achieve something, you need a great leader (like Kevin) and kerjasama (like 3 minions did when they steal the crown). Walaupun dalam movie ni dorang mencuri, amek sudut positive sudah.

What I dislike about Minions:

1. Story dia tak power macam Despicable Me 1 and 2. Biasa biasa je. Tak menarik mana

2. Tak lawak mana k.Tak tahu nak gelak part mana. Ada la part lawak tapi tak banyak. Ke aku yang ada high expectations melampau?

Overall, 6/10 for Minions. Patutnya bagi 5 but they're so adorable plus Kevin tu bijak,so tambah lagi 1 point. Tak faham kenape ada yang cakap lawak gila T_T

kelucahan dalam movie untuk budak budak

Movie Talk : Hamari Adhuri Kahani

It's been awhile since the last time I watched hindi movie and cry from the beginning to the end of the story. Lagi lagi love story. Tipu la tak nangis tengok Kuch Kuch Hota Hai or Mann kan. Laju je air mata keluar macam air terjun. But that was 15 years ago. So technically after 15 years I found the movie yang buat hati banjir.

Hamari Adhuri Kahani is not your typical love story. It's something else. Based on true story,memang kau tak boleh ada high expectations la. I watched this movie last week,alone at KLCC. 2 jam air mata tak berhenti mengalir lepastu siap tak cukup tissue T_T Dah la tengok sesorang,tak boleh nak pinjam bahu sesape,tissue pulak tak cukup. Despite of poor review by the critics, I love this movie. 

Directed by: Mohit Suri
Music by: Raju Singh,Mithoon,Jeet Ganguly,Ami Mishra
Starring by: Emraan Hashmi,Vidya Balan,Rajkumar Rao
Release date: 12 June 2015

Full synopsis for this film,you can read HERE (because I'm toooo lazy to write it).

What I like about Hamari Adhuri Kahani:

1. Emraan Hashmi's best performance ever. I started to love him after watching this film. He can act,tapi movie movie dia before ni semua tak best dan tak menarik perhatian sis (except for Ungli). Siapa yang tengok this film and tak cair dengan Emraan,sah gila. Watak Aarav maybe nampak biasa,tapi bukan senang nak kasi penonton nangis bila tengok the actor nangis. Emraan totally nailed it.

2. Vidya Balan as Vasudha, never failed to impress me with her acting. Watak apa je yang Vidya tak boleh buat,semua boleh. Love her character that stood up for herself at the end of the story.

3. If Mithoon is composing the music, you know the soundtracks will be damn good. The title track, Humnava and Hasi are my favourite songs in this film.

4. I love love love love the story. Dah la hindustan sekarang tak banyak love story yang ching ching air mata bercucuran,so bila dah ada ni kena hargai lebih sikit.

What I dislike about Hamari Adhuri Kahani:

1. I wish for happy ending sebenarnya. Sayangnya Emraan and Vidya mati dalam movie ni.

2. Scene percintaan Aarav and Vasudha tu 21 tahun lepas (sebab anak Vasudha baca diari ayah dia (Hari) and throwback ke 21 tahun lalu) tapi ada samsung s5,skype,range rover. Tak logik kat situ. Sama ada the director memang saja buat macam tu or dia silap besar.

Overall, 7.5/10 for Hamari Adhuri Kahani. Kalau lebih sikit scene romantik,sis dah bagi 8/10.

time scene ni teringat twilight!

IIFA 2015 Part 2 : IIFA Main Awards

To read IIFA's story part 1,you can click HERE

Since we can't meet our favourite stars during the gala screening, we decided to go to Putra Indoor Stadium early. The event was scheduled to start at 7.30pm, but you know crazy fans (including us!) arrived at the stadium at 3pm! For the first time in my life I have waited for more than 4 hours under the scorching sun to meet RANVEER SINGH!

the green carpet was not ready yet when we arrived!

being interviewed by Astro BollyOne!

While we were waiting for the celebrities, the journalist from Astro BollyOne interviewed us and asking few questions about IIFA. "Which celebrity that you want to meet tonight?" Of course I said Ranveer and Arjun! "Who's going to win tonight?" and I said Shahid Kapoor for Haider!

We were upset because the crew won't allow us to enter the green carpet area. All of us need to wait at the outside to watch the arrival of the celebrities. The first to arrive was ANIL KAPOOR. Can't believe he's already 59 because he doesn't look like one.

Anil just walked in front of us! (picture credit to didiey)

Then other celebrities arrived at the green carpet. We saw Sonakshi Sinha, Gulshan Grover, Jacky and Tiger Shroff, Shahid Kapoor, Anurag Kasyap, Zoya Akhtar, Shefali Shah, Rahul Bose, Anushka Sharma, Shraddha Kapoor,Hrithik Roshan and many more. The highlight of the day of course the arrival of Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and Deepika Padukone. Almost cried because I can't believe I met my favourite jodi Ranveer and Deepika.

managed to click a selfie with Shraddha but I can't tracked the owner of the phone (picture credit to didiey)

Who cares about SRK or Salman when people keep chanting RANVEER! RANVEER! RANVEER! when Ranveer Singh came out from the car. Who cares about bebo when people are screaming out loud when Deepika's car arrived at the green carpet and keep asking where's Priyanka Chopra.

the arrival of king of heart, Ranveer Singh. He's so good looking! (video credit to didiey)

Flying kiss from Arjun Kapoor and Deepika Padukone! (video credit to didiey)

Decided to enter the stadium after Deepika arrived because there're so many fans keep pushing us and of course it's annoying. On our way to the stadium's entrance we saw Sonu Sood's car and he gave a personal flying kiss to us!

the stage! (view from our seats)

The show started at 9 pm (1.5 hour late behinde the schedule). The "Zindagi Na Milege Dobara" opening act by Ranveer and Arjun were the best! Better than last year's opening act by Shahid and Farhan. Their parody of dola re dola from devdas were hilarious! They ended their opening act with tune maari entriyaan and both of us can't control ourselves and sing along with them!

Ranveer and Arjun's opening act! (video credit to didiey)

Despite of everything that has been said about the hosts on that night (they failed to impress,their jokes were irrelevant bla bla bla), they already did their best to entertainment all of us for 6 hours! I bet no one can be a host and cracked a joke for 6 hours like them. Some of their jokes are :

Ranveer : In Bollywood,everything stems from the pelvis
Arjun : Even in Ranveer's life,everything stems from the pelvis, uska naam hona chahiye tha pelvis presley

Arjun : What will Priyanka Chopra's website be called? Ranveer : Mary dot Kom!

Ranveer : Last year Anushka Sharma was seen in PK. This year, she's being seen with VK (Virat Kohli).

Ranveer : Where is Emraan Hashmi. He must not be visible because he played invisible man in Mr X. And our Shahid Kapoor is 'Mr Sab ka Ex'.

Arjun : Bipasha, why have you come Alone? Why don't you bring any Creature along with you?

They also made a joke on Ranbir Kapoor's Roy by saying "The film should be called 'Destroy' and not Roy." kakakaka

Let's not forget the epic performance by Parineeti Chopra, Sonakshi Sinha, Shahid Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Hrithik Roshan. Didie and i were singing,dancing,screaming from our seats. Didn't bother other people looked at us hohoho. My favourite performance was Sonakshi's! Don't want to talk much about the performances. You guys should watch it by yourself on Astro First or at Colors TV on 5th July.

The winners on that night already meet my expectations (because I vote for them!). That hilarious moment when Ankit Tiwari came to the stage to receive best playback singer (male) award and Ranveer asked Ankit to do the voice battle with him. Obviously Ankit is the winner! Both Ranveer and Arjun made a booty dance when Kanika Kapoor sang Baby Doll after she received the best playback singer (female) award.

witnessed the most romantic thing that happen in IIFA's stage

The most unforgettable moment that happen on that night was when Deepika came to receive the 'Woman of the Year' honour and Ranveer got down on his knees to flatter her with his romantic poetry. We were hoping he's going to propose her (well we know that's not going to happen)

#DeepVeer moment (video credit to didiey)

what actually happen during #DeepVeer moment (click on image to enlarge)

The full list of winners on that night, you guys can click HERE

Too bad we need to leave early and missed Hrithik's performance. Overall,one of the best night that i ever have. Need to thank TGV Cinemas for giving us the tickets. Met Deepika and Ranveer, I couldn't ask for more. Until today I still can't believe I already meet them. Another wish crossed off from my wishlists!

IIFA 2015 Part 1 : IIFA Gala Screening

I've been watching IIFA awards since they started this awards 16 years ago. After the success of IIFA 2014 at Florida,United States I'm sure that IIFA is coming to Asian country again and I have strong feeling that they will come to Kuala Lumpur. One day they announced this year's host for IIFA and i was right! They're coming to KL. Tak cukup dengan dengan tu, aku teka pulak tahun ni mesti Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor jadi hosts. And guess what? I was right for second time! I think I'm good at making a predictions hohoho.

For those who don't know what IIFA is all about, it is a indian film award,mainly for bollywood films. IIFA stands for International Indian Film Academy. Unlike other film awards at India, they're hosting IIFA at foreign country. Malaysia used to host IIFA at Genting Highlands 13 years ago. More about IIFA, you can click HERE.

I was so excited for IIFA 2015 until I saw the ticket's price. Too pricey for me because the cheapest is RM450. Even Taylor Swift's ticket was cheaper than that. Then I started to forget about attending IIFA and decided to watch it at home.

Suprisingly,2015 has been nice to me. During the first day of IIFA (5th June), Didiey said to me that she just won 2 tickets to IIFA Main Event on Sunday (7th June). I was so excited and been dancing in my office. Then I opened TGV Cinemas' facebook account and there's a contest to win the invition to IIFA Gala Screening of Dil Dhadakne Do. Well I guess there's no harm trying my luck in the contest. Then boom I won 2 tickets for the gala screening. Told didiey the good news and we can't believe that we're going to IIFA and meet our favourite stars.

The IIFA Gala Screening was held at TGV KLCC on Saturday (6th June). I've been dying to watch DDD since they started filming this movie. You can read my review/opinion about Dil Dhadakne Do at my previous post or click HERE.

Met Didiey for the first time after being friends since last year on Twitter

The screening started at 8.15pm but the fans already waiting for their favourite stars since 2 pm. I arrived at 6.30pm and the amount of crowd was unbelievable. There's fans everywhere at level 3 KLCC and of course I can't saw the stage (so many tall people in front of me) and I missed the chance to meet the casts of DDD. The main casts of DDD were there except our jaan Ranveer Singh. He flew back to India to celebrate Deepika Padukone's father's birthday. But I did saw Ayushman Khurrana and his wife, Ritesh Deshmukh, Genelia Dsouza and Jacqueline Fernandez. Jac even smiled at me and Didiey!

Ritesh Deshmukh in front of the toilet. He's really good looking in real life (Picture credit to didiey)

Jac Fernandez smiled at us! (picture credit to didiey)

TGV Cinema was closed for public on that day because they were using all the cinema halls for gala screening, and it was a private event. Only those who got the invitation can enter the hall. We received our tickets for both gala screening and main event at the counter. And yes another surprise for us. We won the main event's ticket that worth RM 1440. I've never been this lucky before. Graduation gift just came early hohoho.

Got our tickets!

Selfie with our jaan Ranveer Singh!

The movie started at 8.15 pm and ended at 11.00 pm. Even though I already watched DDD a day before,I still enjoying this movie. The audiences were crazy. We were laughing and screaming so hard (never happened in cinema hall before this) because DDD was funny. We also got a free popcorn and drinks. Only realized they were giving us free popcorn and drinks after we bought one =.=

After the movie ended, we ran to the ground floor to catch our train (because the last train was at 11.30 pm). Of course we had so much fun during the screening. Felt so lucky as a bollywood fans.

Entry about IIFA Main Event will be continue on the next post!
Till then,bye!

Movie Talk : Dil Dhadakne Do

I've been waiting to watch this film since last year. I mean since they started filming this movie. In addition, the main casts are my favourite (especially Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra). Dil Dhadakne Do is not you typical family-theme hindi movie. DDD is something else. I watched this film 3 times,yes THREE TIMES because best gila I can watch this for thousand times. First time I watched it with my bolly twitter friends kekna and mieza on the first day it released,2nd time I watched it with didiey and the casts of Dil Dhadakne Do during the IIFA Gala Screening (entry about IIFA coming up after this entry!) and for the 3rd time I watched it alone because emm emm i just love this movie.

Directed by: Zoya Akhtar
Music by: Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy
Starring by: Anil Kapoor,Shefali Shah,Ranveer Singh,Priyanka Chopra,Anushka Sharma,Farhan Akhtar
Release date: 5 June 2015

The Mehras - Kamal (Anil Kapoor) and his wife Neelam (Shefali Shah),together with their children Ayesha (Priyanka Chopra) and Kabir (Ranveer Singh) are dysfunctional punjabi family. Kamal always proud with himself as a self made man,that managed to build his own business empire AYKA that facing the bankruptcy. He however has troubled relationship with his wife Neelam. Ayesha married with Manav (Rahul Bose) and set up her own online travel portal. Kabir unwillingly participates in the family business and yearns to pursue a career as a pilot. Kabir has a dog named Pluto (voice by Aamir Khan).

The Mehras

To celebrate the 30th wedding anniversary of Kamal and Neelam, they invite their family and friends for 10 days cruise trip across Mediterranean. Kamal and Neelam also have another agenda during the trip which is to get Kabir married to Noorie Sood, his friend's daughter in exchange for his investing in AYKA.

In the ship, Kabir meet Farah Ali (Anushka Sharma),the dancer on the cruise and fall in love. While Noorie falls in love with Rana Khanna,a son of his father's rival. Kabir and Noorie decide to manipulate their parents to believe they're having a relationship, but continuing their respective relationships. Meanwhile Ayesha wants to get a divorce from her husband,but her parents against it. Sunny Gill (Farhan Akhtar), Ayesha's love interest before she get married with Manav join them on the cruise and she still has a feeling towards Sunny.

Farah calls off her relationship with Kabir,when Kabir's aunt tell everyone about Kabir-Noorie's engagement. Elsewhere, Kamal saw Noorie making out with Rana, and is soon rushed to the hospital due to excess stomach gas. In the hospital room, Kamal tells Kabir that he saw Noorie with Rana, and asks him to call of the engagement. Kabir, in a bout of anger, admits to his family that he knew about the couple all along, and that he is in love with Farah. He also tells them of his intention to not work in the family business anymore. Later, while trying to settle down the problem between Manav and Ayesha, Kamal see Manav misbehaving with her. He agrees to the divorce and begs Ayesha for forgiveness. Ayesha finally reunites with Sunny.

Kabir tries to persuade Farah to forgive him, but she got fired from her job and leaves the ship. Kabir realises of her fate much after the ship has set sail. Kabir jumps off the ship in hope of his family rescuing him and helping him get to the shore. Kamal, Neelam, Ayesha, and their dog Pluto find a lifeboat to rescue him. The Mehra family is seen happy in each other's presence for the first time.

What I like about Dil Dhadakne Do:

1. I must say that Farhan Akhtar did a brilliant job writing the dialogue,especially Kabir's dialogue. There's a lot of LOL moment for example "that was epic,no that was epuke!" "practical?is that what they teach you in London?to be practical? *in british accent" "auntie that is butter knife" and many more!

ranveer is already hot then he decide to wear captain's uniform.super hot!

2. All of the main casts are damn good,especially Anil Kapoor and Ranveer Singh. DDD is Ranveer's best performance till this date after Lootera in 2013. The siblings jodi (Ranveer and Priyanka) are perfect. They look like the real life sibling. Shefali did really well as Neelam Mehra. But I wish Farhan and Anushka have more scenes in this film

3. The supporting casts really bringing up this film to the next level! It's been awhile since the last time Bollywood has a great supporting casts (I do love Hum Saath Saath Hain's supporting casts before this). I love Noorie and Rana's character, as well as Kabir and Ayesha's cousin Putlu.

4. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy did a great job for the soundtracks. I love all the songs,especially Gallan Goodiyan and Pehli Baar. One of the best soundtrack album for 2015.

5. I couldn't ask for more. Zoya Akhtar is one of the best director. First Zindagi Na Milege Dobara,now Dil Dhadakne Do. She really know how make her film different from others. I love love love the cinematography.

best line ever!

What I dislike about Dil Dhadakne Do:

1. There are few scenes that a lil bit draggy.

2. I wish Anushka Sharma and Farhan Akhtar have more scenes so we can see the romance between Kabir-Farah and Ayesha-Sunny.

Great Eastern Color My Heart Run

Sebenarnya nak buat review movie tapi macam bosan je asyik asyik movie review. So iols hold dulu review tu. Meh la cerita benda yang jadi last 2 weeks (kot).

Dari last year nak join color run. Tapi tak sempat nak register. Tahun ni aku google je color run, terus keluar Great Eastern Color My Heart Run ni, aku terus register tanpa was was.

Takkan nak lari sorang kan?Kalau lari sorang aku nak campak color powder tu dekat sape. Haruslah ajak amanda,ateng and mira. Tapi last minute amanda and mira tak boleh join,maka berlari berdua la aku dengan ateng.

Macam biasa la running event ni gather time dia time subuh.Sebagai orang yang berlagak cool,pukul 7 baru sampai dataran merdeka kakaka. Orang haruslah ramai,ada yang dah siap comot comot dengan color.

Before start lari (lari ke?) ada volunteers akan pass color powder.sorang dapat satu color sajo tapi ateng buat perangai dia amek sampai 2.actually semua buat perangai keji amek lebih dari 1 color. ye la kalau satu color je mana nak cantik baling kat baju ye dok?

Lepas launching ceremony,semua pakat berlari. first time aku tengok running event tak ramai yang lari. majoriti jalan berlenggang sambil baling color powder ke member. sepanjang 5km run tu ada 3 checkpoint (dah lupa rasanya 3) untuk top up color powder masing masing. ada jugak water station tapi by the time both of us arrived,tinggal tong je air semua habis.

Sepanjang lari tu tak mampu la nak amek gambar sebab takut phone kotor. ye la tangan dah penuh dengan macam macam color.

after the run. terduduk terus sebab penat kot

actually nak acah acah baling powder tapi tak nampak powder itu T_T
yes aku buang terus baju tu sebab tak rajin nak basuh

selfie sambil baring itu wajib. sebab aku tengok color run kat oversea semua buat macam ni kakaka

dah basuh pun tak hilang T_T

Overall, color run memang best.boleh la nak feeling feeling hindustan kejap. Ateng semangat sampai nak join lagi

Movie Talk : Piku

Rasa macam takde life betul 3 post berturut turut movie review. But I have nothing to do besides watching movies actually. Lepas internship habis, I'm working at home,bagi update pasal kerja dekat boss every friday lepastu tengok movie.

Like I mentioned in previous post, besides Bombay Velvet, I also watched Piku. Melampau kan tengok 2 movie berturut turut in one day. Masuk GSC pukul 11.30,keluar pukul 4. Lepas kecewa tengok Bombay Velvet,berlari keluar dari hall,masuk hall lain tengok Piku. Dah la lambat masuk 10 minit,nasib baik boleh catch up.

I had fun watching Piku. Dah la kelakar dari mula cerita sampai ending. Satu hall gelak tak ingat dunia.

Directed by : Shoojit Sircar
Music by : Anupam Roy
Starring by : Deepika Padukone, Amitabh Bachchan, Irrfan Khan
Release date : 8 May 2015

Piku is a story of Piku Banerjee (Deepika Padukone), a bengali architect who lives in Delhi with her 70 years old father Bhashkor Banerjee (Amitabh Bachchan). Bhashkor ada masalah sembelit dan suka menyalahkan semua benda yang terjadi dalam hidup dia tu berpunca dari sembelit. Piku loves her father,tapi kekadang annoyed dengan ayah dia sendiri sebab his behaviour. Her bestfriend Syed Afroz is also her colleague and Piku is the regular client of Rana's (Irrfan Khan) taxi business.

Satu hari Piku decide nak jual rumah lama family dia dekat Kolkata,tapi dibantah oleh ayah dia. Bhashkor bantah sebab dia sayang rumah tu,and decide nak pergi Kolkata sendiri untuk cancel the deal. Piku tahu dia tak boleh biarkan ayah dia travel sorang, so dia kena temankan jugak. Bhashkor gunakan isu sembelit dia dan buat keputusan untuk travel to Kolkata by road,kononnya kalau travel by flight or train,susah nak masuk toilet.

Disebabkan Piku sangat garang dengan taxi driver sebelum ni, bila Piku booked taxi untuk pergi Kolkata,semua lari and make Rana as the owner to take his responsibility, to volunteer himself to bring Piku and her father to Kolkata.

Delhi-Kolkata bukan dekat k,1500km and it tooks 45 hours to drive. So dalam perjalanan tu macam macam insiden kelakar yang jadi (taknak cerita uols kena tengok sendiri) sampai Rana naik angin. Finally dorang sampai Kolkata, and Piku's uncle and aunt still live in their family house. Masa dekat Kolkata, Rana and Piku pergi jenjalan and become closer.

Esoknya Rana nak beli Delhi, before that dia sempat nasihat Bhashkor regarding his constipation problem and Piku about not selling the house. Piku changed her mind,tak jadi jual rumah lama tu. Bhashkor tetiba buat perangai pelik naik basikal keliling town and beli fried snack. Piku bengang dengan tindakan ayah dia, ayah dia buat buat tak dengar and masuk toilet. Then he said masalah sembelit dia dah hilang and dia perlu naik basikal hehari.

The next day, Bhashkor mati,tapi mati dalam tenang sebab dia pernah mention dia taknak mati dengan wayar dekat tangan apa semua. Piku observes that parents, however irritating they become in their old age, should not be judged. Cerita habis dengan Piku and Rana tengah main badminton.

What I love about Piku:

1. I must say this is one of the best hindi film that I have ever seen. The way the director portray the relationship between father and daughter, is brilliant. From the beginning of the story sampai ke ending (except when Bhashkor mati),aku gelak tak habis habis sebab the script kelakar gila. Bukan lawak hambar tapi lawak genius and I thanked the scriptwriter for the amazing script.

2. The cast, i must say the perfect casts. Piku is one of Deepika's best performance  (after Chennai Express and Cocktail). No doubt she is one of the most versatile actress in Bollywood. No one can pull the Piku character like her. Plus aku bias sikit bab bab Deepika ni. I'm her biggest fan and always proud of her. And of course her chemistry with Amitabh Bachchan menjadi gila. Tak payah komen pasal Big B's acting sebab dia memang legend. Irrfan Khan as Rana, is amazing. I love Irrfan sebab semua film yang dia berlakon,selamba gila dia bawak character tu.

3. Piku takde nyanyi sambil joget merentas jalan apa semua. But I love the soundtracks, especially Journey song. Anupam Roy made a great job for the music.

What I dislike about Piku :

1. Bhashkor mati. Kalau dia hidup lagi bagus. Selain dari tu, everything is perfect about this movie.

Overall, I gave 9.8/10. Kakaka jadi 9.8 sebab aku bias hal hal deepika. Gais korang kena tengok Piku gais. Must watch! Lepas tengok movie ni confirm balik rumah nak peluk ayah masing masing.
