Find of the day

About the Do Not Call Registry websites for Indian banks. Hope it works, though.

Evil thought - what if it was a clever way to harvest phone numbers?!

Absolutelifabulous! I was totally blown away by the film, left the theater wanting to watch it again. And again, perhaps.

Almost everything about the movie is perfect - the direction, acting, music, cinematography, screenplay, dialogues and Bipasha Basu. The only let down, sorry to say, is Ajay Devgan. He puts in his usual restrained and understated performance, which makes you want to give him a kick and ask him to make a frigging statement at least once, for crying out loud! Although Kaliyattam and Omkara are both brilliant movies that stand alone in their own right, one can't help but feel Suresh Gopi's performance was way better than Devgan's. It won him a national award, too.

Enough has been said and written about Saif Ali Khan as Langda Iago Tyagi. Yes, it's true, boys and girls. He is fantastic in the movie, and not just because he (and Konkona) get the best lines.

Last, there is a very obvious John Ford / Sergio Leone influence right through the movie. The whole look and feel is that of a western, from the opening frame to the final cut, when the bodies keep piling up.

Yup, loved it.
