Hindi Movie Reviews…without scene spoilers


I have been spending some time at home this week… so I got to watch some hindi movies. Here are three that I highly recommend :

1. Namesake – Drama : Directed by Mira Nair…its a great take on cultural differences between Indian parents and their American-born and raised children. Its a must-see…btw, it has also been acclaimed by BBC in its list of movies-to-watch in 2007

2. Chuk De India – Sports/Drama : Directed by Shimit Amin…a Shah-ruk Khan (SRK) starrer that wasn’t! The movie is totally different from any other previous SRK movies you might have seen. Its about SRK as a passionate Indian hockey player who then becomes a hockey coach. I can watch this movie again and again….more so for me as I was a state player in Table Tennis and could relate with EVERYTHING that is potrayed there… the lack of spirit of nationality, lack of self-belief, lack of professionalism by coaches….it was homecoming for me!

3. Khosle ka Ghosla – Comedy/Drama : Directed by Dibakar Banerjee…If you ever lived in North India, this movie will is a must watch! It is a take on every middle-class Indian’s dream of owning a house and how the middle-men in North India have created an entire industry to take advantage of this dream…. enough said already, go watch this one!

And there are some more that I was planning to watch….Guru, Eklavya, Jab we met…. if you’ve seen them, write in a line to share your views about them….
