Movie Reviews of Namaste London and Shakalaka Boom Boom
I managed to catch two more flicks on the weekend - Namaste London and Shakalaka Boom Boom. Here are the movie reviews -
Namaste London - 1/10 - This is a typical kind of flick I dislike. A senseless wrongly made film about NRI's which is manufactured to cater exclusively to Indians abroad. All kinds of bakwaas about how great India is ...... firangs are bad. Really, there is nothing nice I can say about this film ! The dialogue and script were so unbearable I kept switching channels in between. The end was so predictable, Katrina Kaif leaves her English boyfriend at the altar and runs out of the church after Akshay Kumar. It actually tries to prove that forced arranged marriages are the right thing to do.
Shakalaka Boom Boom - 5/10. This is an ok timepass movie. The casting is good and so is the music. In this film Bobby Deol (AJ) and Upen Patel (Reggie) are competing to be the number one singer in New York (ha ha ha). Reggie is a talented, ambitious newcomer whereas AJ is an established singer who has worked hard to get where he is. AJ is afraid Reggie will become more popular than him and works hard to blacklist him. He befriends him and gets him addicted to alcohol while stealing his music compositions.
This film is supposed to be the biographical film of music director Himesh Reshamiyya .... I wonder which famous music director tried to prevent him from becoming famous ?? Upen Patel looks fab and shows great acting potential. Bobby Deol suits the role of the main villian perfectly. The only problem was the script - it was silly at times and confusing.
