Movie Review: Lootera

So, to start off the New Year of 2014, we finished the movie, “Lootera”. The title means or is related to a guy who robs stuff or something like that. We started the movie last night around 10:30pm [I think] and ended at 12:15am [maybe]. None the less, it was the first thing we did in 2014…finish the movie called Lootera, starring Ranvir Singh as Varun, and Sonakshi Sinha as Panki Roy Chaudhary, and a bunch of other people I don’t know the names of. My mom was dreading the movie; she thought it was going by so slowly, dragging its way into the New Year [too many New Year puns, I know. Its annoying.]. Anyway, I liked the movie, surprisingly. I will tell you why I liked it.

What I like in movies:
-Watchable aka no-or-less-than-usual-‘chicorapun’.
-There was a story.
-Sure it was slow, but it played well with the time era.
-It kinda reminded me of me. yea, idk.
-The actors acted well.

I suggest you do not read beyond this point if you don’t wana know everything about ‘Lootera’, because its *spoilers* time [haha, why does that sound so perky in writing]. So, if you haven’t seen the movie, go watch it and come back and read this post. The movie starts out in the old times; I’m not sure if they gave the exact time era, but it has something to so with the Bengali Independence time. One of the things I hated about the movie, yea there are a lot of things I hate about every movie, was that the heroine’s [thats what the main actress is called in bollywood or lollywood, if it still exists] father gives away the whole plot of the movie by telling her this fable [remember those?…animal stories that have a moral at the end].

I have problems understanding these clues at times, especially if they aren’t in english [yes, this is a Hindi movie, if you hadn’t guessed it already]. Both the actor and actress, and side hero [Varun’s friend] did a good job in their performance. The old man was ight. Both Varun and his friend had a plan and it worked! They left the father and Panki both looking like fools the night before her engagement. Sad for her, but also for Varun since he wanted to just leave his days of robbing-all-the-wealth-he-can-get-his-hands-on-from-those-filthy-rich- hooligans families, but he couldn’t do that to his ‘chacha’, who raised him up with so much care on the wrong path. Tsk tsk. Varun and Panki also experienced these shy, slow, and old-timish romantic feelings that were hard to let go of till the end of the movie.

Anyway, I liked the movie. Its not a new movie; I think it came out in the beginning of 2013, but, watevs. Why did I decide to write a review…because I had to get my mind off of other stuff. I can’t get myself to do the dumb stuff for school and I have less than a week left. Ah. Help. Ok, hope you all liked reading this Movie review. I can do more if you want, in the future. Comment below, like, and hope you all have a great year ahead. To 2014, cheers, alcohol is bad for you.

Movie reviews, of good movies that didn’t make sense.

Here are a list of the movies and explanation to why they were good to watch, but not to think about. Its ultimately because they don’t really make sense and do not require intellectual thinking…unless you are so confused why people would make such a movie, because thats how much the plot doesn’t make sense enough to be a movie. The answer is: money or entertainment, I guess [idk]. So…now I have made it clear the answer to the only ponderation you can have. You’re welcome. Feel free to watch these sense less films.

-Inkaar: This is a Bollywood movie. The title literally means “Deny”. The only reason I watched this movie was because of, yes, the actors. [Face palm…the appropriate act of motion at the moment]. The leading characters, I forget their film names, are good actors in my opinion. Thats why I watched it. But, the story was stupid to be honest. *Spoiler*: I mean, what, why, how, just because you both where confused if you were in “love” or was it misunderstanding? And you still harass/claim a case on one another out of frustration…omg shut up, Eva. ok, I am done. Urg. Dumb story, great acting.

– Jab Tak Hai Jaan: Again, a Bollywood movie. The title means “Till I have life” ? LOOOL. I don’t know if thats right or not. Anyway, I watched this movie because of, yes, Shahrukh Khan. As much as I dislike Katrina Kaif, SRK’s presence always undermines who ever else is in the movie. This film was dumb, but not as predictable as the one mentioned above. It wasn’t predictable in that *Spoiler* no one would expect someone to be as dumb as Katrina Kaif’s character. Even I couldn’t get over the fact that she spent decade(s) holding on to a “promise”-slash-trade off. And how in the world was a twenty something year old, girl allowed to stay with the bomb squad by herself. She somehow develops a one sided love story and wished she was a generation older towards the end, when Kaif, out of no where comes to her senses. WHAT!?. Urg. Dumb story, great acting SRK.

Desi problems.

Desi problems.

-Don 2: Another Bollywood movie with SRK as the leading role. The main reason I watched this is because SRK was in it and even though I hate Prianka Chopra aka Piggy chops…SRK was in it. Also, I saw Don 1, which was pretty good, story and all. Don 2 had good acting, in that everything they said in english was HILARIOUS! I mean, *SPOILER* how can you not laugh when you hear the desi accent of “Vat do U Vant!?” over and over. Also, you can’t not watch it multiple times after hearing the oh-so-confused-old-cop-man answering the phone and saying “DON?..*turns to his force*, Its DON!” LOOOL. Oh, you cant forget the part where SRK takes off the mask-of-another-actor’s-face and smiles with his hair all messed up. It was more comedy than suspense/action; I loved the fact that they didn’t bother to fix his hair or make the scene over again. Watch the movie and then re-read this paragraph and you won’t think I am a nut case. Oh man…I am definitely watching this movie again for Summer 2013. The plot was not good because they just took parts of all different movies from Hollywood, Bollywood, Lollywood [LOLlywood haha] and mushed it in one. All in all, dumb story, ultra funny movie.
.
Yea, I am done. I would include some Hollywood movies, but for Hollywood movies, I either like them or hate them. They are either dumb with poor acting, or good with good acting [the ones I’ve seen at least]. Bollywood movies are more thinking because they are that ridiculous sometimes, in terms of story. I don’t watch Bollywood movies that have bad acting [I know, who cares]. But, Hollywood movies are sometimes not watchable as Bollywood. This debate can go on forever…so, YAY for superhero series! The latest Young Justice episode was worth it !

Spicy topic on Matrimonial

Spicy, because desi food is spicy. I know, ‘Har Har Har’. Ok, never mind that. Its not a spicy topic the way I am posting it, but it is interesting. Right? Anyway, I have already talked about how hard it is to find someone to get married to, especially if you are brown and live in the US. I failed at being people’s matchmaker btw [read this post]. I tried my best, but in my defense, you shouldn’t say you want to get married if you really don’t! This puts all sorts of pressure, confusion, embarrassment, and stress on the matchmaker aka Eva626. Not fair. At all.

So moving on. I had made my mind a while back that I wasn’t going to post on this topic, but then I did put it on my Organized List of Future Posts earlier. Also, because I stumbled upon someone’s tumblr. A ‘tumblr’ is a fascinating type of site actually…there is always something interesting. So the person, who calls himself ‘American Brother‘ recently had some ‘tumblr posts’ (I don’t know what the ‘tumblr people’ call it) about marriage. It was interesting and I liked it so I thought back about my decision about posting this post and I really had to.

It was this:

A MUSLIM MAN PROPOSED TO A MUSLIM WOMAN

  • MUSLIMAH: me? If I do not know how to sew, or cook, or iron..  How am I going to marry you?
  • MAN: Do you know how to pray? Do you worship Allah Subhana wa ta’ala without associating with anyone? Do you wear hijab? Are you afraid of Allah?.
  • MUSLIMAH: Yes, I pray every day, I wear hijab, I love allah and no one else, I give charity whenever I can and the one I fear is Allah Subhana wa taa’ala.
  • MAN: *smiling* That’s enough for me, I want you to be the half of my Deen, not my maid 🙂 ♥

I thought it was just brilliant. Thank you tumblr-er the American Brother. Oh yea, being the curious blogger that I am, I asked him if he was married…to find out check out his site http://americanbrother.tumblr.com/.

I am not done yet…I was going to rant on and on and on about how it isn’t fair how some people set out to pick a person to marry based on the other’s ‘bio data’. URG, nvm. By the way, in search for matrimony is not a spicy topic after all.
