KING OF POP

MICHAEL JACKSON

1958-2009

Its been months since my last post and i haven’t had the opportunity even if i wanted to make a post, but i had to do this for a man who gave a new meaning to the word MUSIC as the world saw it. Here goes my tribute to the KING OF POP M.J. As the world mourns the death of a singer,a dancer,a performer,an entertainer, call him what you care he was the man, the THRILLER. He was loved by all. Rewinding back to the mid 1990’s i still remember dancing to REMEMBER THE TIME everytime it was played at home. Then i knew a man called M.J existed and his music was spellbinding. And then came the new revolution in dance…The MoonWalk, even today i secretly practise MoonWalking inside the bathroom(simply because thats the only place where i can slide backwards pretty easily) but Jacko could do it even on a mountain terrain. Such was his talent. Then as years went on the name faded to oblivion and was in the news for all the wrong reasons M.J was no more the man i used to know. He was in all kinds of problems, but he had one thing with him that nobody else possessed, the aura to entertain. And he was about to do the same come July 10, but god had other plans though. He cut short the life of a man who gave us so much with his music. You Live in your Music M.J!!!! The time has come for you to entertain the gods, show them your dance steps and let them be mesmerized!!!! RIP

FAST FORWARD 2008-BOLLYWOOD

As 2008 is nearing an end, here is a look at the Hits & Pits from the world of BOLLYWOOD. This rating is strictly based on the fact that these movies made an impact on me. They might have made me dance,sing,cry,have fun, or have done absolutely anything that amused me. So here goes…

thumbs-up

THE HITS

1. ROCK ON

***ing: Farhan Akthar, Arjun Rampal,Prachi Desai.

Directed by: Abhishek Kapoor.

A wonderful movie about the reunion of a rock band that had split due to differences and ego problems with some great music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy. A must watch if u hadn’t till now. Rock On takes top honours.

2. JODHAA AKBAR

***ing: Hrithik Roshan, Aishwaria Rai Bachchan.

Directed by: Ashutosh Gowariker.

A period movie set on the times of King Jalaluddin(AKBAR). A poignant love story with some great chemistry between the lead pair set the screens on fire.

3. JAANE TU YA… JAANE NAA

***ing: Imran Khan, Genelia D’Souza, Manjari Phadnis.

Directed by: Abbas Tyrewala.

A story of friendship,love and fun with entirely newcomers in the lead role and foot tapping tunes from A.R.Rahman that made it big at the box office. It also made Imran Khan(nephew of Aaamir Khan),the heart throb of bollywood land. This film takes the honours for being the first big hit of 2008.

4. A WEDNESDAY

***ing: Naseeruddin Shah, Anupam Kher, Jimmy Shergill.

Directed by: Neeraj Pandey.

A film with a stong social message with power packed performances by nasseruddin shah and anupam kher. The rise of the comman man made an impact at all centeres.

5. DASVIDANIYA

***ing: Vinay Pathak.

Directed by: Shashant Shah.

Loosely based on THE BUCKET LIST, this movie tells the tale of a man whose days are numbered. Watch out for Vinay Pathak in this joyful and soulful tale. The music by Kailash kher deserves special praise.

JUST MISSED IT!!!

These are a group of movies that may not have made it to my top 5 but are the once u shouldn’t have missed this year.

  • AAMIR
  • RACE
  • OYE LUCKY!! LUCKY OYE!!
  • WELCOME TO SAJJANPUR
  • FASHION
  • DOSTANA

thumbs-down-colTHE PITS

1. TASHAN

***ing: Akshay Kumar,Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Anil Kapoor.

Directed by: Vijay Krishna Acharaya.

Arguably the worst movie to have hit the screens this year with a shabby storyline and anil kapoor,s damaged HinGlash(English). Even Akki could not save this box office disaster.

2. LOVE STORY 2050

***ing: Harman Baweja, Priyanka Chopra.

Directed by: Harry Baweja.

A futuristic love story between a guy and his lost lover, even robots acted better than the lead pair. There was no love in this love story and the future was never so bleak.

3. MANN GAYE MUGHAL-E-AZAM.

***ing: Rahul Bose, Mallika Sherawat,Paresh Rawal.

Directed by: Sanjay Chell.

The purpose of why this movie was made is still not known. What more can in say about this audience killer. I recommend you to not even watch it on dvd or a tv premiere.

4. KARZ

***ing: Himesh Reshammiya, Urmila matondkar.

Directed by: Satish kaushik.

A remake of the old Karz with some unbelievable bad acting and an equally unbelievable storyline made sure the audiences stayed away from theaters. So long Himesh!!!!!!!

5. HELLO

***ing: Sohail Khan, Amirta Arora.

Directed by: Atul Agnihotri.

Based on the novel ONE NIGHT AT A CALL CENTER by chetan bhagat, this movie was the worst adaptation one could ever make of the book. No wonder hello is in the top 5 of the wrong side.

JUST MISSED IT!!!

Some equally bad movies which gave the audiences a nightmare at the movies.

  • KRAZZY 4
  • CONTRACT
  • WOODSTOCK VILLA
  • SAAS BAHU AUR SENSEX
  • BLACK AND WHITE
  • SUNDAY

and the list goes on…………
