Slumdog Millionaire – great beginning, happy ending, tedious middle parts. dialogue would have served better in hindi, didnt feel authentic enough in the second half thanks to dev patel’s sudden british accent. enjoyable, sure – worthy of the hype? – no. rehman’s music is especially disappointing, he’s done way better. check out music of delhi 6 for something better.
Luck By Chance – driving message of the film is that fortune favours the brave. a quite interesting take on the bollywood movie machine, done with a lot of love by the new generation of one of the industry’s more famous couples. plot is well written though worn in parts, but the performances of the ensemble cast make it work well despite the occasional patch of boredom. watch out for rishi kapoor, konkona sen and the brief cameo by hrithik roshan – oh and farhan akhtar does a good job himself. music is quite good too.
