Movie Reviews - Omkara and Shaadi Karke Phas Gaya Yaar

Movie Review of Omkara and Shaadi Karke Phas Gaya Yaar.

This weekend I watched two movies - Omkara and Shaadi Karke Phas Gaya Yaar and this is what I thought of them -

Omkara movie review saif ali khan ajay devgan viveik oberoi kareena kapoor konkana sen bipasha basuOmkara - 4/10 - a dark movie based on the classic play Othello written by William Shakespeare. The casting was good - Saif (Langda) and Devgan (Omkara) should always be cast in negative roles. The only problem being they are below average actors with a limited range of facial expressions and should'nt be given too much to handle. The dialogue was in a local dialect of Uttar Pradesh abundantly sprinkled with abuses and swear words. Most actors especially Konkona just could'nt get the accent right which made the film seem fake. A shocking scene - Viveik Oberoi singing 'I Just Called to say I love you' with a guitar in an american accent.

Shaadi Karke Phas Gaya Yaar Salman Khan Shilpa ShettyShaadi Karke Phas Gaya Yaar - 5/10 - (Marriage has trapped me, my friend ) Salman Khan plays the character of Ayaan - a shy guy who cannot express his feelings to girls while Shilpa Shetty is a bold talkative girl. The movie was quite interesting but I managed to see only half of it due to a power cut......too bad.

Did you catch these flicks ?

  2. short and good reviews. at least the way you have undermined such movies is commendable, as per the directors who make such patriarchal cinema with sexist stereotypes, thats quite deplorable.

    keep on!
