There is a punjabi movie named Angrej which gives a good glimpse into punjabi culture.
Similarly, which movies provide good knowledge about Malayalam, marathi, bengali etc cultures?
I honestly thought this movie was going to turn out to be some cringe fest rivalry going by the trailer but the movie is insanely good.
First of, Anil Kapoor's acting, oh my freaking good, I never knew he could but here the range and intensity on the face while managing to time it with camera movements, so freaking good. Anurag has also done well but for me Anil Kapoor takes the show.
Second, Story, Finally a new concept and is not some cheesy remake or ghisi peeti love story. The story is so fresh, unique and Meta that honestly it blew my mind.
Finally, Meta-ness & Direction. Motwane has created his masterpiece with this movie. The perfectly timed gags with simple camera movements that pull you into the scene matched perfectly with just the right music. Truly a thriller like no other!
I kid you not, one scene you can feel the camerman become exhausted, Motvane has captured the feeling of running out of breath via camera so perfectly, it blew my mind!
To me it is easily a movie that needs to become popular so we can have more directors push the envelope when it comes story and direction within our Industry.
Motvane has created the first actually good Indian mockumentary.
Hatsoff to Anil for doing this movie, destroying his actual main hall room couldn't have been easy, Anurag for the craziness in his eyes and Motvane for the brilliant work he has done.
It's been a while since I have seen an Indian movie and thought to myself, "This is Genius", but while watching this movie, I said it multiple times.
Please dekho jaake (Please go and watch), we need more stuff like this coming from our Industry, which won't happen if we don't have more people watching.
Note: The trailer doesn't do it justice at all, don't rely on it to decide.
Since everyone's pretty gung ho about changing Bollywood for better, I feel it's important to remember upgrading our own taste is a vital step in that direction. To that end, I think we must start revisiting some gems from our past that are truly astounding works of cinema, movies no one would have thought Indian cinema would be capable of producing.
Would you guys be interested in doing a weekly post series of this sorts where we discuss and recommend such movies to each other and expand the scope of what we watch plus also give artists their due?
Guys I am so sad right now. I want to see Akira in 4k in the big cinema halls but I don't think it's ever gonna happen. But I am happy for you guys as well, those who got to see it. You would have enjoyed a lot, watching a masterpiece like Akira in IMAX.
In India, we don't actually appreciate great films like Akira, because a lot of us won't be able to understand it lol. Well, not only that, we actually don't support good path breaking films. We're all crazy for the shitty movies with shitty acting and the same shitty plot. Bollywood is a farce. But I am not here to degrade Bollywood.
I can never even dream that any cinema hall here will EVER show a movie like Akira. 😭😭😭😭😭😭
I have very limited knowledge about south Indian film industry. And TIL about Pawan Kalyan. (To his fans, please don’t kill me)
Well! I always stood up to the West that Indians do make World class films, because we do make incredible movies with barely any budget in fact. But when it comes to the part they play in Social causes it's just a lot of fodder I believe. Today Brad Pitt was the first winner of the night, and immediately used his speech to attack the way the impeachment proceedings against US President Donald Trump were handled. He said and I quote, "They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week." as Pitt probably doubts that president of the United States might have got away with Quid pro quo. I really don't care if Trump did or didn't do it just like if "BJP is trying to represent the Hindu Communalism." But I do care when an actor/actress in reasonable amount of safe and powerful environment rolling around in top down cars earning money out of the public but shying away from making their views public to create a positive effect especially at a time when the country is divided over CAA-NRC. Tanhaji gets a tax exemption which is ridiculous as a movie relating acid attacks, which I believe is a serious problem in the so called biggest democracy in the world doesn't deserve such an exception clearly because Deepika stood at some protest without saying a word.
I don't care if BJP is right or wrong but I expect the big guys to make a difference for the kind of money they make out of the movie goers.
PS: I ain't a Pappu's fan, so please be reasonable bhakts.
