Ahista Ahista and Yun Hota Toh Kya Hota - Movie Reviews
This weekend I caught two movies - Ahista Ahista and Yun Hota Toh Kya Hota. This is how I rated them -
Ahista Ahista (slowly slowly) - 6/10 - starring Abhay Deol (Dharmendra's brother's son), Soha Ali Khan and Shayan Munshi (of Jessica Lal murder case fame). This movie based in Delhi is a good, original love story of a paid witness in a marriage registration office. Abhay Deol shows some promise and I simply loved his collection of shirts. The director of Ahista Ahista has worked hard to make Soha Ali Khan look pretty, but his tricks have mostly gone in vain plus her acting sucks. I liked the acting of the guy who plays Abhay's friend who betrays him by telling Soha the truth about his lies.
Yun Hota Toh Kya Hota (What would be different if it had happened this way ?) - 7/10 - starring Jimmy Shergill, Konkona Sen, Ayesha Takia, Paresh Rawal and some new well cast faces. Good story and screenplay with real life characters. A very well made film on Indians running after an american visa and the 9/11 terrorist attack in New York/Washington DC. If the Indian film industry was serious about winning an Oscar - they should have sent Yun Hota Toh Kya Hota as the official entry for the' Best Foreign Film' and not Rang De Basanti which was pure trash !
