Shortly after 1800 hours, 11 July 2006, Mumbai was shattered by seven bomb blasts on Western Railway stations: Matunga, Mahim, Khar, Bandra, Jogeshwari, Borivali, and Bhayandar. It took the Police and ambulance over an hour to attend at various sites. This incident changes lives of Thomas, originally from Chennai, who sells tea from his bike; Rupali Joshi, a TV News reporter, who has to deal with the death of her to-be spouse, Ajay Kumar Pradhan; Suresh, in debt, starts to suspect all Muslims, especially Yusuf; Inspector Tukaram Patil, about to retire, goes about collecting bribes as usual, much to the chagrin of his embittered, honest and soon to-be suspended subordinate, Sunil Kadam; while Nikhil Agarwal, a Nationalist and environmentalist, debates whether he should re-locate to the United States, along with his pregnant wife, Sejal.

Plays Adam Waltz a Fan that wins a contest to play a role in a b-grade like movie. I think the blonde girl in this played the ditzy Vampire in Angel/Buffy, ah I?m good It is here. Mercedes McNab who was also in Supernatural, playing what else a vampire. As well as Lance Henriksen playing Connor Pritchett the financer (?) in the 50s an actress is slaughtered in the dailies one of the actors or 2 starts to see the dead actresses spirit. People in the production are being killed off, by some masked ?avenger? Definitely NOT original. However I did like the ?Shakespearean ?dude? for some reason he just amused me, but what was up w/ his onion feasts? Eddie Furlong stunk but just imagining that, is really how things go on set.. Ugh! Esp. that director guy OMG! I?d F?n punch him (either that or make sure I?ve had A LOT of carmelized garlic the night before & REALLY show what I think of the movie.. SKUNKY D

Ahlalalalala, pourquoi faut-il qu'en France on pensent que du bon cinma pretant a reflexion doit forcement etre du cinema chiant ? A croire qu'on a mal compris Brecht qui n'a jamais renie le spectacle dans ces theories sur la distanciation ! Le film en lui meme n'est pas moche, c'est tres propre. Mais il faut le voir avec les yeux de l'epoque, que le citoyen lambda ne se voayit pas au cinema. Maintenant c'est fait, on passe a autre chose.
Kenneth L (jp) wrote: For a movie you may or may not have heard of, this one has actually been enormously influential. It's also an immensely funny and, I think, quite poignant movie that works beautifully on its own terms. If you don't count the much earlier This Is Spinal Tap, then Waiting for Guffman would be writer/director/star Christopher Guest's first "mockumentary." This format has since been taken up by shows like The Office and Parks and Recreation, and is by now quite familiar to most of us. But at the time, Guest was one of the first to do it.This particular movie follows a group of eccentric, quirky characters as they strive to put on a play to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the founding of their hometown, Blaine, Missouri. Leading them is Corky St. Claire (Guest himself), an exceedingly flamboyant man with the world's worst haircut, who moved back to Blaine after years of failing to become famous on Broadway. There's also the Jewish dentist Dr. Pearl (brilliant co-writer Eugene Levy), who dreams of being an old-fashioned vaudeville entertainer; Ron and Sheila (Fred Willard and Catherine O'Hara), travel agents who have never been outside of the town they live in; and Libby (Parker Posey), the sweetheart Dairy Queen employee who wants to be a star.The movie relies entirely on its characters, who are all bursting with enthusiasm and sincerity despite their total lack of talent. It's easy to imagine this material coming across as mean, and in the hands of someone less delicate than Guest it might have been. But the movie, much like Parks and Recreation, allows us to laugh at the characters' goofiness without actually looking down on them as people. Guest has used this same group of actors in the projects he's made since this movie - Best in Show, A Mighty Wind, etc. - and it's easy to see why. They're probably the funniest group of people in contemporary movies. Watching them is kind of like watching a bunch of funny uncles and aunts. Eugene Levy elevates every movie he's ever in, and Fred Willard is just such an irreplaceable, funny, old-fogey presence. Catherine O'Hara is also quite funny in a less showy way, and Parker Posey actually has a lot of real charm that she lends her character. Guest himself is hilariously over-the-top as Corky, but he plays it sincerely, never winking at the audience. Apparently the movie is almost entirely improvised by the actors - Guest gave them the basic storyline and their characters, but let them come up with everything from there and then just edited the resulting material into a movie. This seems like a tricky way to make a movie, but I guess you can't argue with results like this.The movie's humor is off-kilter, and unlike many bigger-budget comedies it doesn't have obvious cues for the audience to laugh. If you can get into the spirit of it, though, it's one of the funniest movies around. The way the facts we learned about the history of the town in the first half of the movie become the subjects of the play's songs in the second half is priceless. If you at all enjoy the mockumentary comedy of much recent television, you should definitely go back to this minor classic where the format really got started.

Bde Gregory Peck och Lauren Bacall funkar frvnansvrt bra som komediskdisar (deras trighet anvnds p ett kreativt stt), och manuset r riktigt bra, och t o m spnnade p slutet.
