I saw two Hindi movies recently. One was very good and one was very bad.
Love Story 2050
In spite of all the bad reviews this movie got, I still WANTED to see this movie. It's a sci-fi with time travel, you don't get those often in Hindi cinema. So I watched it.
It's raining outside. Hero is in the mall with hero's girlfriend. It's not that crowded and hero is holding her hand. Suddenly, looking deep into her eyes, and hero utters this romantic dialogue:
"You are like a hot dog without the sausage."
At this point you have to think, seriously, how much worse can the script get? By the end of the seriously bad movie which feels so long that you THINK it's 2050 by the time it ended - you'd know just HOW bad this movie can be.In terms of acting, only Priyanka had a great challege - she had to play two roles. Girl in love, and girl in love with red hair. The special effects are never seen before, in Bollywood that is, but standard Hollywood fare.
As for product placements, it's very amusing to know that Xbox will still be around in 2050, and their latest model would STILL be Xbox 360!
In short, please save 3 hours of your life and do NOT see this movie.
Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na
Cute. Good. Adolescence love. Nice movie. Very much watchable.
The heroine looks so much like 'Liya it's uncanny.
I liked the movie - especially the funny climax.
Songs are great.
Please go see it.
