I enjoyed the movie Fashion. And New York was nice too.
I like movies like that.
If you liked Fashion, I would recommend Page 3
- also directed by Madhur Bhandarkar.
and I hate that fake slamming sound when they give punches on someone's face; it's so jackie chen, so 1975
The DISHOOM! DISHOOM! is hilarious, lol
Truth to be told, I've been departing from Bollywood to Kollywood, Tamils have more down-to-earth themes, and songs are more Indian (not that modern techno sounds of most Bollywood sountracks of today)...See the movie called Kutty.
I have also heard that South Indian films have maintained a much more authentic cultural aesthetic in their films than Hindi films. And which Kutty are you referring to exactly? There have been two films by the same name, released in 2001 and 2010.
My favorite actresses are Asin, Kang'na R., Pryanka Chopra and Lara Dutta.
Deepika P., Bipasha and Katrina K. ain't too bad either.
As for actors, I like Vivek Oberoi and Adhyayan Suman.
Like all of them, except for Deepika and Katrina.
As for the language used in Hindu movie industry, I like the Northern accent (Delhi-Punjab-U Pradesh) and the accent Southern actors have (Asin, Deepika, Vivek Oberoi). But I cannot stand the Marathi accent, it's so muffled (not clear) and the intonation is irritating.
I wish there were diction classes (accent coaching) for actors, I like the accents Northern actresses have (Pryanka and Kang'na).
Priyanka also has a pretty authentic American accent when she speaks English; she picked it up while growing up in the US. You can hear it at the beginning of this song clip
Urdu diction in particular is very desirable in Bollywood and show business
in general, it seems. Even Lata Mangeshkar (who is Marathi) had to undergo training
in order to perfect her Urdu pronunciation.
I don't like Kareena, she is ugly.
No way she would be hired in Hollywood.
She made it in Bollywood because of her connections in the industry (pulled some strings big time) and not because of her talent or looks.
I must disagree. I don't think Kareena is ugly at all. Being a Kapoor may have helped her break into the industry, especially since her debut film (Refugee
) was by A-list director J.P. Dutta opposite Abhishek Bachchan. However, she had to struggle for years by working her way through a lot of really bad films. It wasn't until Jab We Met
that she became one of the industry's most sought after actresses.
Before Jab We Met
, she received a LOT of critical acclaim for her performances in Chameli
, and Omkara
Kareena should do a Tamil movie, the beauty of the hero would suit the beauty of the heroine.
Um, what exactly are you implying? That Tamil actors are ugly? I'm assuming this was a joke, a pretty tasteless and unfunny one at that.
