An amnesiac after a train accident, Alok Mukherjee (Uttam Kumar) is rescued on escaping from the asylum where he is admitted by doctor Roma Banerjee (Suchitra Sen) who takes him to her father's (Pahadi Sanyal) country house in a village called Palaspur. There, while treating him she falls for him and he for her. They marry but a second accident makes him recall his life as a rich businessman in Calcutta and forget the memories spent with Roma. Roma follows him to Calcutta and meets him there but he doesn't recognise her. He hires her as governess to his niece instead. Roma keeps trying to simulate Alok's memory but is looked at suspiciously by Lata, Alok's fiancee in Calcutta who thinks Roma is snatching Alok away from her and who complains to Alok's mother. The latter has Roma kicked out. Alok realizing she is from Palaspur and that is where he got back his memory goes there and regains his memory of times spent with Roma there. All's well that end well.

If so, then we're on the same page, and I'll go one stepfurther to say that this is another point on your Molly ShannonAntemasque bingo card.Granted, I didn't expect to tune into The House of Sand and Fog, or aKenneth Brannagh Bard adaptation, but I did expect to at least laughand smile a bit over a lighthearted romp. It was too lame forintellectually passive leisure, and still took itself too seriously tobe funny for its failures (i.e. the Room, Ed Wood flicks). All in all,it's only watchable because of its good production value, cute facesand the lesbian twist that leads you tepidly to wonder what's afoot.Now, if you watch the first 15 minutes and think that the acting isexaggerated (not laugh-out-loud comedic, but simply over the top like abad high school play), the dialogue is poorly written, and thecharacter interactions/personalities are a little contrived (wonderingaloud, "Who actually says stuff like that? Who responds that way?"),then rest assured: it won't get better. And that vague nigglingcuriosity about what's going to come of all this build-up is simply"almost nothing".This is where I, like Jack on the wreckage of the Titanic, try to saveyou as I slip into the frigid primordial depths of despair. You don'thave to live like I did. You can stop this movie before it even starts,and you don't REALLY need to know the ending, because I promise you,your life is worth more than that.But as for me, that was not to be my fate. Unfortunately, I saw somepositive reviews online that persuaded me to watch this heap ofcinematic refuse all the way through, made desperate by FOMO. Now Isuspect that everyone was as pissed off as I was about the lost hour oftheir lives and joined in on a conspiracy to pay forward the pain as apractical joke, the film equivalent of Rickrolling someone.Consequentially, I witnessed the happy-go-lucky 90's grocery storesoundtrack and analogous plot ambling along, painfully forced likehigh-fat discount ground beef squeezed out of the plastic wrapper.Limited nutritional content, and so full of hot air that it contributesto greenhouse gas emissions in a significant way. I began to think thewriter had no idea where she was going with the story line but damnedif she wasn't going to make a movie! How did she persuade someone toproduce it? How did this get a box-office release? Maybe because ofeye-candy Heather Graham, SNL subnova Molly Shannon and "originalCarrie" Sissy Spacek signed on?Heather Graham never really acts 'sad' or 'upset' in a human manner -instead, she jumps up and down, sputters dramatically, pacesfrantically, and says, "I'm upset! I'm really upset!" or "I'm so sad!I'm really sad!" - this is not the way normal humans act, except forthe members of the anime club who perceive all life through a cartoonfilter.But you white-knuckle your arm rests, not because of the story arc, butbecause of the fear of that to which you've committed your time. Youlinger in grim anticipation that something might finally happen of someinterest or revelation... **********(SPOILER ALERT? but you knew it wasabout lesbians BECAUSE IT'S IN THE SUMMARY FORCHRISSAKES!!!!!)********** ...and then learn that that character is alesbian. Then this boring 2D character wrestles with being a lesbianfor the remaining minutes of the film before finally, nominally,accepting herself and entering the lesbian community---andthennnnnnn....... WHAT?! wtf, you mean it's over?! We spent all thistime waiting for one poorly-constructed fictional character to makepoorly-constructed fictional peace with the fairly banal subject ofsexual preference, but never to actually act upon it before the movieis over?! Yes, that's exactly what happens.Maybe this movie was well-received because there are tons of lonelyPacific Heights trophy wives sitting at home in their yoga clothesrelating to these vapid, mindless characters and personally invested intheir triumphs? Maybe they're misty-eyed remembering their bi-curiousOK Cupid fling between troubled marriages and yearn to remember theirgym teacher flame as Heather Graham. Or maybe this film received decentreviews because it's one of few "coming out" films for women in theU.S., and moreover one of few comedies. But if you're a smart dykelooking for quality entertainment that you can strike sexy rapportwith, my advice is to look elsewhere.

While the direction and acting are of the highest quality possible, the scenario are some how vague and the stories are so short to reveal the film's message strongly.

Sean L (au) wrote: When a simple, jovial New York firefighter is badly injured rushing into a fire while off-duty, his kid brother takes up his cause with the mayor after he's refused workers' compensation. Somehow that leads to a series of graffiti-based public black eyes for the administration that quickly escalate in size and media coverage. Naturally Jimmy, the barely-legal brother, is behind it all. A close follow-up to director Bob Clark's A Christmas Story, the two are, oddly, very similar in tone and candor. The whimsical, light touch works for a family holiday tale, but in a streetwise take on corrupt politicians it doesn't really fit. A stiflingly straightforward plot, one-dimensional characters and senseless love story don't help matters. This wants to seem charming, funny and intelligent, but in practice it's bland, soft and out of touch. The one real hook could've been a focus on how, exactly, Jimmy manages to constantly thwart the mayor's security measures and lay his tags, but most of that activity is left to our imagination. Weak, flavorless and bereft of passion, it's a real dud.

While it is not a standout example in any way, it will no doubt entertain true fans. A local women's college begins to experience a series of murders by a masked biker who targets women that attend certain night school classes. He's into decapitation. What more needs to be said?

Steven P (nl) wrote: Wayne's World, directed by Penelope Spheeris is a romantic comedy produced in 1992 and set in Aroura, Illinois. The main characters are Mike Myers playing Wayne, Dana Carvey as Garth, Tia Carrera as Cassandra, and Rob Lowe as Benjamin. The movie won 3 awards including the MTV Movie Award, Brit Awards, and the ASCAP Film and Television Music Awards. I love this movie because it's a great family comedy. Wayne's World is a tale of two men trying to make it big, and in some terms, I guess that it worked out. Wayne and Garth have a small T.V. show in Wayne's basement called "Wayne's World". It's just like the local news, but with a hilarious attitude. The duo get what they wanted but there was a couple speedbumps in the process. One of the funniest parts of Wayne's World is when Wayne and Garth start to argue while laying under that plane flies over them. The reason that I find this scene funny is because I can relate to it. Sometimes you get into a really bad fight with your friends. What also made this funny is because they timed it perfectly because they started swearing. It also is a great movie because it brings joy to the whole family. There are multiple scenes that a family with any age children can enjoy together. Films like this can bring people closer to each other like teens who sit on their phones all day. If it's good enough to get a 14 year old girl off her phone for the whole film, it deserves gratitude and some awards. Overall Wayne's World is an amazing movie. How else would it bring in an income of $183,097,323? I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who likes semi cheesy movies. Honestly this is my all time favorite movie, and I hope it can be yours too!
