Holi

Holi

In a typical college in a typical Indian city, the hostel boys Madan Sharma (Aamir Khan) and his friend are a rowdy lot. The teaching staff suffer from the common apathy of most teachers in similar colleges. The administration has the usual problems, with ill-paid employees periodically going on strike. On the whole, the college is a very normal place. But on this particular day, when Madan and his friends rise from their slumber, some with the customary hangover, they are not so perturbed to find no water in the taps again, as when they hear that it is not going to be a holiday after all. Instead there will be a lecture in the auditorium by the Chairman of the Board (Dr. Shriram Lagoo), on the day of the festival of fire, Holi, and the boys decide not to attend the classes. The hostel superintendent Professor Singh (Naseeruddin Shah), the only lecturer with some human links with the students...

Tom C (nl) wrote: Its always great to find a well written, well acted, and well produced romantic comedy. Found myself laughing and also wanting to shed a tear. The characters are outragous yet not so unlike ourselves. It was definitely a fun movie, and different from the typical Hollywood offerings. I highly recommend it.

ubaid d (us) wrote: Relentlessly bloody with a convoluted plot, intense chase sequences and ridiculously violent fights - this is one heck of a movie. Highly recommended.

Steve S (ca) wrote: I've heard accounts that this film largely glosses over Joe's image and casts him in a light unfairly lionizing him post humously. Some of the interviews do come off as hero worship and of course anything that Bono attaches his name to is bound to draw the ire of the anti-arena indie crowd. But none-the-less an interesting glimpse of a man and his band that changed rock history.

Thomas N (fr) wrote: The acting is amazing! Just kidding the acting is just as terrible as this movie is. Even Corey Feldman who plays Robert Toulon does a terrible job. This film is more of a comedy than a horror. The Puppets look bad, the effects are bad, nothing is good about this film. Ive never seen the Demonic Toys films but I'm sure they are way better than this. I am glad that this movie is not considered to be a part of the actual Puppet Master series as well as the Demonic Toys series.

Wayne K (gb) wrote: Robin Williams truly throws himself into one of his first major movie roles, blending his skill for both on-the-fly comedic routines and teary-eyed gravitas. The first half of the movie is excellent, with Williams' improvised DJ routines entertaining the troops and riling up the top brass at the same time. Plenty of great gags are delivered in these scenes and you may have to watch the film several times to pick up on them all, and the supporting cast all contribute their own unique elements. But rather than blending the importance of humour in difficult situations with the shocking realities of war, at the half way point the film hits the sentiment button, and hits it hard. The laughs almost completely dry up and we are forced to endure a stiff march through the motions. It doesn't sink completely, largely thanks to Williams' sympathetic portrayal, and overall the film is very enjoyable, if fairly unbalanced. Were it not for the dynamism of the central performance it could have been a colossal misfire, but as is, it's often funny, occasionally poignant, and definitely worth the watch.

Pavan R (ca) wrote: Quite an exciting story which builds up beautifully and the actors perform superbly to bring it to a good climax...good watch

Garrett O (kr) wrote: One of the best Cops and Robbers movie ever made. Don Siegel showed Clint Eastwood how to direct and Siegel is an unappreciated genius. The closest modern director is Michael Mann and Siegel is better. The story of Charley Varrick out-thinking the mob, the cops, and his fellow thieves is a great story. I have never seen Matthau better and his cat and mouse with Joe Don Baker is high stakes suspense. Great flick.

V M (kr) wrote: Rajesh khanna is the real superstar of india, no actor can be compared with his acting till today. He is greatest of all

Michael M (ca) wrote: Very solid, albeit old school style film about a family that witnesses (and participates) in the breakdown of society after a series of nuclear attacks create chaos. If you're into this sort of thing, you'll probably enjoy this flick.

Rachel R (es) wrote: If I had to rank things I find boring, golf would typically top the list. However, Seve: The Movie made me fall in love with both the golf legend and the sport at the center of its story, John-Paul Davidson does a masterful job interweaving archival footage and dramatizations to create a biopic that follows Seve Ballesteros' rise to fame -- a tale of perseverance and passion. At times, I forgot that young actor Jose Luis Gutierrez was not Ballesteros himself. By the end, you'll be cheering Ballesteros on -- sports fan or not. Would recommend to all looking for an inspirational story to lighten their day.

John C (ca) wrote: Anyone remember this cheesy movie?? I think the only reason I wanted to see it was because of W.A.S.P. Is this even out on DVD?

James S (fr) wrote: A superior thriller here to many that I've seen. Brosnan and Butler are on top form as the kidnapper and husband respectively, with good supporting performances.
