Jai Ho : Power puff common man

jai-ho-Buddhu box5

Once upon time some one told me don’t go to watch a typical Bollywood movie with your analytical brains. SO with courage I tried to take my child like brain  in to hall and clap on every roar of Salman Khan and even when he crunches bones  and flinging bodies .But finally ended up in laughter on the weak linkages of story
Pay it forwardThe moment he said he wants to start a goodwill chain . But he is no ordinary do-gooder. He doesn’t take a mere ‘thank you for a response. He exhorts the grateful beneficiaries of his acts of bravery to keep the spirit going by helping three other people each. Does that rings bell . Yes this concept is exact copy of an classic English movie “Pay it forward”. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0223897/ I thought might be the copyright of the movie would have expired so they were free to pick up the concept. Well if he would have thought of two arms Do you still remember how the chain marketing people proceed on the way .I don’t know people will start the chain of good deed after this movie or not but definitely children will learn biting as best defensive mechanism after all salman uncle does it quite often in the movie.

jai-ho-Buddhu box 2Don’t underestimate the power of a common man ..after sharukh from Chennai express its salman in jay ho endorsing aam admi party 😛 .  You will come to know why Salman Says “sujuki hayate yu hi nahi chalate “ for his bike stunts …. Copy copy amir khan ki copy.re many super hero common man moments but the cherry on top is Sunil Shetty coming with his army tankor on road to save salman almost when fight is over and still salman goes in autorikshaw of Mahesh manjrekar. All police cases in any area go through Aditya pancholi only. In short there are many moments in the movie where you will shout aloud and say SERIOUSLY DUDE 😉 .

On a tangential node I feel this movie is made to glorify salman’s image and tell him what a great human being he is .

jai-ho-Buddhu box 1

Jai Ho is a virtual parade of actors whose movie careers are in desperate need of assistance – Ashmit Patel, Yash Tonk, Mohnish Behl, Nauheed Cyrusi, Tulip Joshi, Bruna Abdullah, Sana Khan, Aditya Pancholi, Sharad Kapoor, Varun Badola, Santosh Shukla and the like.Each of them gets his or her few flashes of fame in the film. But eventually none of them rises above the din to be seen and heard.

Dhoom 3 Fans Please don’t read it

d3 5Movie is a box office hit and by far the most emotional one of the Dhoom series. Amir khan proves to be a gravitational puller for the audiences in the movie theater. No doubts he has worked harder on the looks and most importantly dances. I have never seen him dancing this much in the movies but was dance so crucial element for the movie? They should have rather worked on script.

Madam katreena, I first time came to know that someone is really passionate about the carrier options of working in circus. Fine I give you credit for all the acrobatics you have done.

d3 3

Though there are few moments which leave you stumped in movie of the negligence they took while making movie. How in one scene the super cop is hurt badly under his ruptured super bike and next he is on roads doing broom wroom . Will someone tell how Amir Khan has actually stolen money? All what we can see that he knows driving bike vertically on walls and capable of $ rains. Any ideas on how the two boys grew up without any support? Why they got any need to join two bikes?

d3 4Not only has the character of Jai Dixit made entry in movie doing stunts with auto rickshaw along with his management quota candidate Mr. Udai Chopra. He tries to act funny when not at all looks so.The so called action super cop Jai Dixit  is neither able to catch any of the thief nor return the money/valuables  back  to the government and still he is super cop. Almost in every sequel he is on verge of being fired by the department. Wait! But my first question should be why in the first place Chicago police called you, dearth of translators or what.

Though the movie tries to create a feel of Fast and the furious but fails to reach nowhere near it. All the films borrow (to be generous) liberally from other movies, and “Dhoom: 3” picks some nifty sources, with everything from “The Blues Brothers” cop-car pile-ups to Christopher Nolan’s “The Prestige” showing up for a salute, though the three main motorcycle set pieces are mounted with sufficient skill as to render them beyond complaints of stealing.

So I believe my message is clear Iam not at all impressed with movie.

Besharm : should be re titled as CAR CHOR

I will defiantly talk about some indigestible stuff of so called sumptuous movie of Kapoor family. Who may be wanted some on screen family time.What a waste of talented actors; Yes, I’m talking about all except the heroine who seemed to be freshly arriving from the operation theater of plastic surgeon . To make her a combipack of Priyanka chopra and  Amisha patel. With acting sense of fardeen khan 😉 ,brain of rat ;sorry rat I didn’t meant to insult you.

Besharam_ On Buddhubox 3

She is manager but lives in small chawl like house. Single ready to mingle to a classy rich boy and falls for a orphan professional thief who is merely 5th pass.And is afraid of dogs not Don’s. The girl’s mother is from some confused era who at one point faints on vegetable rates on other allows her girl to roam with loafer. Well I just want to communicate to two ladies madam ji “dil to sweeper, driver , gangster sabka achha ho sakta hai so ??” BTW why on first place the fell in love or did they fell in love. this movie has surpassed even ‘shuddh desi romance’

Story of Movie can easily sum up in a line; its simple Car thief steals the car of the girl he likes and must steal it back from a dangerous hawala king to win her over. There is a song for every dam occasion to show Ranbeers dancing skills . O did I not mentioned actresses south Indian steps and otherwise grumpy looks.

Besharam_ On Buddhubox 2Now the Kapoor aka chaotala couple they have good screen presence spoiled by poor script and character definition .But they were the ones who spiced up the so called climax of the movie. With some sunny paa ji  pranks

The Hawala king Jawed jafferi and his team carry a roket launcher , seriously that’s the Idea to carry a rocket launcher in street  openly and people are cool with it. What an sedulous don who does all his menial works on his own.

Somebody please tell the director and producer of the movie that you don’t put the title of the movie on basis of multiple occurrences of the word in the movie. If that would have been the case then every  other movie of Dharam and sunny would be titled “kutte me tera khoon pe jaounga” 😛

In brief this movie is perfect example of how right ingredients can make tasteless dish because of naive cook .

Maslow’s Motivation Mantra of Milkha Sing the flying sikh of India (Bhaag Milkha Bhag)

Winners Don’t Do Different Things They Do Things Differently:

Bhaagmilkhabhaag_Maslows Hirarchy 4

The question is always the same after all what motivated the winner to sustain the extreme pressure for and do things differently. What motivated the person to keep going towards acme of success? What motivates his behaviour?

Bhaagmilkhabhaag_Maslows Hirarchy 10According to humanist psychologist Abraham Maslow, our actions are motivated in order achieve certain needs. Abraham Maslow studied what he called exemplary people such as Albert Einstein, Jane Addams, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Frederick Douglass who till date known as the real achievers of their times in addition to Maslow studied the healthiest 1% of the college student population and came up with a paper in year 1943 and Gave his theory of Motivation as Maslows’s hierarchy of needs . After him there came lot many motivational theories on and clinical psychology and psychiatry  but till date your knowledge of Human Motivational theory is incomplete without Maslows .

Maslows finding wouldn’t have been deviated a bit for the exemplary sports man Milkha Singh . The recent biopic on him portrays him as a true winner who kept winning, kept himself motivated may be for different reasons at different stages of his life and gradually moved towards the top of pyramid Self actualization.

Bhaagmilkhabhaag_Maslows Hirarchy 11

Like any other biopic “Bhaag Milkha Bhag” also comprises of stories of guts, disappointment and glory but much more than it for a layman to learn about . The picture though portrays the story of success and glory with emotional turmoil of the  nation’s pre-eminent athlete from 1947 to 1960 and his growth cycle .Lets observe closely how Bhaag Milkha Bhag is registering it self for the motivation epic for management gurus. According to Maslow’s there are five levels of Hierarchy of Needs

  1. 1.    Physiological Needs

Bhaagmilkhabhaag_Maslows Hirarchy 8

Milkha singh won his first race in the camp in his craving for Milk his basic need for special diet . His first motivation was reflected by the twinkle in his eyes on announcement of the rewards of winning the race. which suffices the very base of the pyramid physiological needs

These include the most basic and instinctive needs that are vital to survival, such as the need for water, air, food, and sleep. It puts all the needs become secondary until these physiological needs are met.

  1. 2.    Security Needs

Bhaagmilkhabhaag_Maslows Hirarchy 5The real dash of the doyen Milkha begun when he had to run to save his life as per the instructions of his father to save himself in the riots of 1947 and though scary like hell but still it was a motivation where he had no other option except to win to stay alive for the sense of Security which according to Maslow’s is another step of motivation. Though for Milkha this sense of security soon moved to other aspects like steady employment when his love interest questions his carefree life style.

  1. 3.    Social Needs

Bhaagmilkhabhaag_Maslows Hirarchy 7As a contender for race Milkha instantly feels longing for respect and acceptance among the fellow members when he says,”I want to wear the coat , as the coat begets the respect from all”. The desire to be called Champion Milkha singh and wear the Coat of India and further to prove himself as an eligible contender and earn the badge pumps him to run in race even after the severe injuries which were result of the dirty internal rivalry of other sports man. He thus proves that a strong motivation and desire to win needs no boundaries

According to Maslow’s once the previous two needs get fulfilled a person is motivated by his Social Needs which includes include needs for belonging, love, and affection. Relationships such as friendships, romantic attachments, and families help fulfil this need for companionship and acceptance, as does involvement in social, community, or religious groups.

  1. 4 Esteem Needs

After the first three needs have been satisfied, esteem needs becomes increasingly important. These include the need for things that reflect on self-esteem, personal worth, social recognition, and accomplishment.

Bhaagmilkhabhaag_Maslows Hirarchy 1

Once Milkha  looses the race at Melbourne summer Olympics  which gives him a personal dent .rather than moving into the spiral of depression he sets himself a target to break the record and retrieve the self esteem and accomplishment in his coming race which he successfully did in 1960 summer Olympics at Rome where Singh’s fourth-place time of 45.73 became the Indian national record and held for almost 40 years. This was followed by many more wins including multiple Gold Medals in Asian games and Common wreath games. This almost justifies Maslow’s last but Motivational cause the Esteem Needs which reflect on self-esteem, personal worth, social recognition, and accomplishment.

  1. 5.    Self-actualizing Needs

This is the highest level of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. Self-actualizing people are self-aware, concerned with personal growth, less concerned with the opinions of others, and interested fulfilling their potential.

Bhaagmilkhabhaag_Maslows Hirarchy 18Though Milkha had loads of political pressure but he initially denied to participate in the Peace games organised in Pakistan but later went there. He went back to his mother land and overcame his internal pain and fear . Shreds the burden and enlightens himself for the moment and he fights that race for no one else then himself. Thats why its said he didn’t ran he flew that day and earned  a title of Flying Sikh for himself. And that states the ultimate motivation of a person can have Self Actualization.This is the highest level of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. This motivated state of a person makes himself aware, indifferent with others opinion and focused on fulfilling their potential. According to Maslow once a person reaches this peak of Pyramid he can be in auto motivated mode.

Though to an extent i agree that a man cannot be bound to the theories but still the iconic Milkha singh has proved if you just keep yourself enough motivated then success

Bhaagmilkhabhaag_Maslows Hirarchy 13

Though the motivation behind every race he won was different followed by his dedication and devotion but still the similarities couldn’t be neglected.

The story of Milkha Singh is un doubtly inspirational. In this three hour saga, which takes us from Milkha’s childhood in then Punjab-now Pakistan, the trauma of Partition and being torn from his (Milkha’s) family, his lawless youth, his joining the Indian Army and gaining respectability. Followed by discovering the joys of running. For himself, and for the honor of his nation.

Bhaagmilkhabhaag_Maslows Hirarchy 9Working in a biopic definitely Farahan has made his name hard coded not only in hearts of Indians but also the international crowd to bring the story of Glory on the big screen with the respect it deserves .So the crowning glory of this one goes to Farhan and the director Omprakash .

Aashiqui 2 Needed a Alcoholic Rehabilitation Center to be Ashiqui

All I could say in one line is that this movie would have done a little justice to its name had they used a rehabilitation center in the movie.What are the story writers of Bollywood doing . Even if they want to be inspired by devdas please learn read and follow literature and character.

Yes you got it right I have some serious issues with the movie’s story and its relevance from the beginning the hero is shown to have drinking problem and which goes on severe with coming days. Where he is ready to leave his GF love of life and finally commits suicide rather than leaving or properly trying to leave drinking habits. Nobody even suggested them for going to proper de addiction centre
aashiqui_cover Buddhubox

Actually at end of it I doubt whether any part of it was even love as they way movie proceeds it makes us feel that the characters are so thankful to each other that they cannot leave the other one.

And what kind of parents he had who were never bothered by what is going on with son’s life he is ok or not. His carrier is at downfall his cash flow etc. . Even the Uncle JI never bothered to inform his parents that their child needs attention.

Meanwhile let me tell you iam ignoring the “so called STARDOME of HERO” are we Indians that big fan of singers ;).

The poor hero lost his life because his depression and addiction was not treated well.

Rehab Center of Ashiqui2Yaa a suggestion to all so called true lovers /Girlfriends please don’t think drinking problem can be cured by singing songs and shaving the hero in some iland .This is an addiction and needs a proper cure  assisted by doctors and proper methods . Muktangana Rehabilitation centre is one of such dedicated NGO’s  http://muktangan.org/


 

Similarities with other flicks

  • AASHIQUI 2 brings back memories of A STAR IS BORN, which was made thrice in Hollywood — in 1937, 1954 and 1976.
  • AASHIQUI 2 bears no resemblance to its namesake.
  • You don’t miss strains of Hrishikesh Mukherje’s 1973 hit Abhimaan (starring Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bhaduri) in the drama that follows. Aarohi’s stardom escalates and so does Rahul’s envy. Ego somewhere comes in the way of their love.

Aashiqui set quite a few trends. It ushered the new-age musical on release in 1990. The soundtrack emerged as a hero, setting a template that let producers make profits casting unknown names as leads. Finally the music, the film’s real winner. A battery of three composers (Mithoon, Jeet Ganguly, Ankit Tiwari) give the film its big reason to cheer for. Also, lend a ear to newbie singer Arijit Singh. Here’s hoping Aashiqui 2 does for Arijit what the first film did for Kumar Sanu all those years ago.But then after watching the movie the songs have lost its charm. But the movie has done its business on bunch of people who want to justify alcoholism or true song lovers .

 

ABCD Any Body Can Dance is the best gift to Dancers in India

For me ABCD is a movie which is full paisa vasool movie. To let the fate of a film hang on the talent of just dance alone takes humungous belief in self. Truly, impossible is nothing… if you dare to dream. Remo Sir… THIS IS IT!

Yes I can go and watch it again for the quality for the dance for the respect I have for their work in the movie .
ABCD buddhu box 5Every time I used to see the step-up series and others like I used to envy them and think why the hell we don’t have a movie on dance where we have so many unique dance forms of our own.

At last director Remo D’Souza’s heard my voice and made one though it still doesn’t captures the Indian dance versions but never mind it is a pure treat to eyes and heart. You may start tapping your feet with the rhythms.

Though a  little predictable and not very unique concept but still it has all in it emotion action drama, dhamal and good turning bad, bad evolving as good, love, nationality and more important than any of the above this movie has DANCE in it . Dance in its purest form.

 

This movie was dedicated to dance and had dance in it. This movie don’t has dance as part of it it has story as a part of dance. In about 143 minutes, ABCD tries to catch the emotions, aspirations, rebellions and values the contemporary Indian youth so cherishes

One of my highest disappointment was the movie NAACH by ram gopal verma

ABCD buddhu box 2

I really felt prabhudeva with his endearing accent (Mohanlal-like Hindi) enhances the authenticity of the character – he is a man who left Chennai 15 years ago to pursue his dreams in Mumbai. I have to confess I fell in love with his character and DANCE .

Ya another treat to eyes were the acting of the choreographers. The young cast, all dancers, display such seasoned emotion in the execution of their roles that one can easily say Any Body Can Act. And that is a huge compliment for this hitherto unknown bunch of dancer/actors who set the stage on fire… literally! They all did a fabulous job . It’s a tough job to put so many talented people at one place and give everyone their space role dance to act on and justify it. SO I give 9 on 10 to this movie in all these aspects.


The choreography of every dance sequence is breathtaking and Remo has had the unenviable task of looping in a story within dances. Not a flaw in the script, as the story moves on from frame ‘one’, to the spectacular finale.



ABCD buddhu box 1
Hang on; there is a flaw, and a huge one at that. A team has to change props and their performance at the last minute. However, within 10 minutes they are ready with a track. They could have managed it with either incrising the time limit or adding another scene in it But you are willing to let go of this cinematic liberty as the film climaxes. 

So Don’t miss to watch this one and admire the new bandwagon of actors who are the best dancers .

(There are so many in our bolly wood who don’t know either and still exist as parasites )

Iam already waiting for the sequel.3D or no 3D make a sequel soon 🙂
