Bindu C (it) wrote: The Plot:Dishkiyaoon is another crime / action film based upon the Mumbai Underworld. It is the story of a Mumbai-based gangster who wants to achieve the top-notch position. The film begins with the narration of Viki Kartoos (Harman Baweja) to Lakwa (Sunny Deol) in regard to the events that landed him in the jail. Viki always wanted to be a gangster from the very childhood itself. He continued his studies, simultaneously pursuing gangster-giri under the wings of Mota Tony (Prashant Narayanan), a local crook. Viki falls in love with Meera (Ayesha Khanna). Further, the plot unfolds to project how Viki pursues his journey to grab the top position. He rubs his shoulders with Inspector Khan (Aditya Pancholi) and other people as well.Direction:The debutant director Sanamjit Singh Talwar fails to impress through Dishkiyaoon. There are so many glaring loopholes.Cast and their Performance:Harman Baweja?s performance as Viki Kartoos is noticeable though it turns out to be weak due to poor storyline.Felt sad to see Sunny Deol as Lakwa. He has been given weird hairdo, accent. What a waste of a talent who has given Sohny Mahiwal, Gadar, Hero ? the Spy, Damini etc. to Bollywood.Ayesha Khanna as Meera is alright.Prashant Narayanan as Mota Tony is a relief in the movie, although, he has been given dialogues with double meaning at times. Certain frames where Prashant and Harman are there together is ok.Sumit Nijhawan as Iqbal Khaleefa and Anand Tiwari as Rocky have given good performance.Other Cast viz. Aditya Pancholi, Hasan Zaidi, Harsh Chaaya, Rajit Kapoor are not utilized optimally. Shilpa Shetty looks hot in the item number.Music:Music is average. But what needs to be appreciated is that 18 year old Palash Mucchal has composed four songs in this movie. The song Tu hi Hai Ashiqui sung by Palash Mucchal and Arijit Singh is good.Moments to watch out for:None.Thumbs up:Harmaan Baweja, Prashant NarayananThumbs down:Weak story-line.One Liner:Dishkiyaaon to Dishkiyaaon !!!

Jonny P (us) wrote: "Dracula 2000" was heavily panned but I actually kind of liked it! I would never watch it again, but I still kind of liked it! Some may argue that it destroys the Dracula story (and it does), others argue that it is over-the-top (and it is), but it is still a unique perspective on the background of Bram Stoker's famous character. Despite its sacreligious themes, I think that the writers did an incredibly clever job of explaining Dracula's aversion to silver and crosses. It also breathes new life into the character (well...) and raises the question of whether he is still around today. Christopher Plummer's acting is pretty great as Van Halsing but I mostly enjoyed Justine Waddell, Jennifer Esposito, and Colleen Fitzpatrick (singer Vitamin C, though she sadly doesn't sing the Graduation song in this movie...) I didn't notice their acting very much but they sure were nice to look at. "Dracula 2000" isn't going to appear on anybody's list of "Top 50 Horror Films" but I would definitely put it on my list of "Top 50 Dracula films." Well, maybe. It is a sexy look at the legend with awesome visual blood and an original story that you won't find anywhere else.

Tommy See the Treasure S (nl) wrote: It is not difficult to see why Charlie Chaplin's most beloved alter-ego, The Tramp, has had such an enduring legacy in the heart of cinema. The Tramp is surely one of the most likable and sympathetic characters to ever grace a cinema screen. With his baggy pants, tattered tight-coat and toothbrush moustache, he is absurd and comical in appearance. Yet watching one of Chaplin's most revered classics, The Gold Rush, I was struck by the overall depth and complexity of the character. The Tramp travels to take part in the Klondike gold rush, only to find himself stranded with another prospector, Big Jim(Mack Swain) and Black Larsen(Tom Murray), an escaped convict. In a snow-surrounded cabin the trio get into a series of surreal and slapstick adventures, with Big Jim and Black Larsen quarreling over a gold deposit the latter has come across. One particularly funny scene is The Tramp serving up his own boot, boiled, as a meal for himself and his starving comrade. It's a bit absurd, but what makes the scene so funny is the typically deadpan nature of Chaplin's acting. His behavior suggests that there is nothing unconventional about eating your shoelaces like spaghetti. The second part of the movie sees the Tramp in a gold rush town, where he falls in love with a charming lady named Georgia(Georgia Hale). Blinded by his affection for Georgia, the gullible Tramp is unable to see that she is only playing him for laughs. Okay so now that I've rather meaninglessly outlined the plot I'd like to get to the root of just what is so appealing about this movie. Some of the comedy has dated a little, but for the most part - and not to sound like a bitter old curmudgeon here! - I still found it funnier than a lot of comedies that are released nowadays. The slapstick, however ludicrous, is painstakingly orchestrated, and the comic timing of Chaplin is exquisite. This movie contains one of his most famous bits- the roll-and-fork dance; although I'd seen this bit imitated and referenced countless times in other media( 'the Simpsons' for example) it still made me laugh. The supporting performances are all excellent too. Georgia Hale is superb and natural as the object of The Tramp's affect, the boisterous and popular Georgia. Georgia is an interesting and challenging character. She's not instantly likeable, but her character has personality and substance. As the movie progresses you begin to see her as deeply flawed and insecure, but not entirely unsympathetic. Mack Swain is also very funny as Big Jim McKay and Malcolm Waite fits the bill as the arrogant villain. The Tramp is an extremely lovable character who is impossible not to root for. He is the perfect comic hero: flawed but kind, hopeless yet optimistic. We sympathize with him throughout all his indignities and woes. He often seems doomed to misfortune, yet just as often seems to be touched by providence. In one early scene our oblivious hero is followed by a bear along a snowy cliff. The bear eventually disappears into a cavern and the Tramp continues his journey, blissfully unaware that he was ever in any danger at all. It's perhaps the most remarkable and quietly hilarious scene of the movie, and it also says something vital about the innocent nature of the hero. In another funny scene, the Tramp inadvertently serves a comeuppance to a womanizing bully(Malcolm Waite). Yet for all his moments of fortune, he is just as likely to end up hanging on for dear life on the edge of a cliff. His existence it seems is one of many ups and downs. As well as this, the character proved an interesting study in strained genteelness. In the early scenes in the cabin, while his comrades are driven to madness and violence from greed and hunger, The Tramp stoically endures. In the face of ludicrous and brutal external events he does not forget his manners. He tips his hat, adjusts his coat, and does his best to hang on to the tattered threads of his dignity. And there is just something altogether lovable about a character who pedantically wipes a plate clean, only to serve upon it a boiled boot. The Gold Rush is a sweet and moving classic of the silent movie era and it's not difficult to see why it's the movie Chaplin most wanted to be remembered for.
David L (de) wrote: With boring and flat characters, uninspired and weak story, awfully boring and dreadfully dull tone and overall bad approach, Chariots of Fire is a joke of a Best Picture winner and one of the worst ever to win the 'coveted' award. It is solidly made and the score is absolutely terrific with an extraordinary theme, but everything else in this movie falls apart, it is tedious to watch and it is one of the most overrated films of the eighties that proves how incredibly weak dramas were in this decade.
