The best shit this year! Part 2

3 Jan


Now moving on to the movies (Read Part 1 about the best  music of 2011 here), something everyone likes and enjoys. If you are like me, you distinguish between the years of your life, as to when a certain movie came out. Everything about that year, what you talk, what you think, how you dress is connected by that movie. So this list is special as 2011 was special. These may not be the highest grossing movies of 2011 but are definitely the best ones made. Catch them before the Oscars.

Cast: Greg Kinnear, Toni Collette, Abigail Breslin, Steve Carell, Paul Dano and Alan Arkin.

If you could accompany the Hoover family on any one road trip, it should be the one where they all pile into their weather-beaten Volkswagen T2 Microbus and head to California. For on this trip, you will not only have interesting co-passengers but also an unlimited supply of drama, topped with copious doses of dark hilarity.

Wishlist: Movies we should be watching

This is not one of those end of the year, best of 2011 lists. No we are not too highbrow about doing that. But that will be covered in a separate article by the prodigal daughter – Anushree Phanse. She did send us some kind of mixed signals that she will be writing this week, so we’ll look forward to that.

In the meantime – This article is about the movies that have created a buzz and have garnered some positive reviews, in the countries where they have released. This is by no means the most comprehensive list you will find out there, so if you think I missed out something, let me know and I will write about it too

Rockstar OST – Album review

3 Nov


Rockstar is actually quite an amazing album with a few standout songs. Just don’t go expecting a rock album and you won’t be disappointed.

It is unanimously accepted that ‘Bombay’ was Rahman’s best work. That film had music that was not heard of before in Bollywood and went on sell over 12 million records. Over the years he has established him as the best musician out of India in recent times and he has strengthened that by winning the Oscars(though the soundtrack was not that great) and composing great music for films like Saathiya, Rang De Basanti, Guru, Jaane Tu ya Jaane Na and Jodhaa Akbar. So where does the Rockstar soundtrack stand in comparison to these?

The New Wave of Marathi Cinema

16 Oct


The Guest Writer for this week is Rasik Tirodkar.

In the last few years cinema has really caught my attention. During the same period the “Marathi manoos” politics has repeatedly embarrassed me as a Maharashtrian. So I take solace in the lovely cinema that the Marathi film industry is churning out consistently. I try to promote it in every way I can.
