(us) wrote: This movie was less than the sum of its parts. It's only the fact that the two leads are so likeable themselves that made me watch this film to the end. It was hard to suspend disbelief about some plot points (particularly action sequences) and the emotional heart of the film also seemed unevenly distributed (Diana's pathos). Melissa McCarthy is better than this.

(us) wrote: A very touching movie. I must say first half is the best..Salman and Preity's performances are excellent. Salman looks very good as a Sardar. It shows he can pull off anything. The background music in the first half makes you cry in a lot of the scenes. I would have gaven it full 5 stars but the second half some scenes drag on and the fight scene with sunny was over exaggerated. Overall a good movie with good performances.
(au) wrote: So many things in this film make me feel like complete and udder crap. When I'm with a girl and she wants to put things off, does that mean she's just toying with me? Bunuel takes the story The Woman and the Puppet and makes an emotionally difficult film out of it. I was worried about the scene where Conchita was going to dance naked in front of the men, and when it happened I felt jealousy just like when I read the book. And what sucks is that they are warning against these emotions. Well, to be honest they warn against stupidity as well. All Mathieu wanted from Conchita was sex, so is it not right for her to use his shallowness for her own well being? These two are a match made in Hell. They are right for each other because they both enjoy the game. We hear the story from his perspective so it's hard to step back and realize how terrible of a man he is. If a woman tells you she doesn't want to have sex, but that's clearly something you want, then you shouldn't spend your time and money on her. When you catch her with another guy in her room in YOUR house, then you should probably never see her again. Don't believe the lies. I liked the way Bunuel modernized the story. It was good to get rid of the young man infatuated with Conchita. It always felt out of place. Instead it works better to start out in the room with a bloody pillow and broken vases, then hear Mathieu lie about what happened. We need to spend more time with his character, so getting rid of the young man made sense. And when we reach the point in the story where they are in Seville and they enter the room from the beginning we know he's just going to beat the crap out of her. There's the possibility he raped her too. We don't know because we don't see inside the room. Does she deserve it even though she had sex right in front of him? Not at all. Mathieu should have been long gone by that point. And violence is never a smart idea. I really liked the terrorist attacks going on around them. It set an interesting backdrop to have these people destroying each other while Conchita and Mathieu do the same things on an emotional level. This might not have been the point. Bunuel could have done it just because he liked the idea, but it works for me that way. And you know when you see the first explosion that this film's going to end by the couple getting blown up, which made the ending in the mall that much better. You're just waiting for the moment when it will happen. This is clearly Bunuel at the top of his game. He can play with comedy and deep drama better than most directors. That Obscure Object of Desire was the last time I will watch a Bunuel film for Julian's class, and it was a great way to end it. There's the reality that he knew how to tell stories better than the majority of filmmakers.
