Kai Po Che is another pleasant surprise from the industry which gave us Race-2 and Murder-3 in the first 2 months of the year. Our main reaction was: how did such a boring book become such a great movie? But, between admiring it and wishing all movies were this good, we did find time to award Kai Po Che our weekly LOL-scars, before that inferior ceremony which calls itself the Oscars. Here's our list: if you can think of any more awards we can put in, we might reward you with a special 'Kai Po Che Guevara' T-shirt.
Kai Po Che has cricket running all through it, from the basic premise to scenes like the one where Ishaan takes a surprise catch sitting on a bench. We thought the most impressive part was how level-headed and sensible Ishaan was as a coach. And that made us think of the sad state of Indian cricket today, where Duncan Fletcher seems to have resolved to take us below his native country (Zimbabwe) in the ICC rankings. Here's how Ishaan's coaching policy might help Team India today:
With how much audiences are loving Kai Po Che, it seems like movie-makers in Bollywood have hit upon a formula for making good movies. Create likeable characters, pit them against the cruel world, throw in generous dollops of sentiment, tragedy, humour and fun, and you've got yourself a hit. We've gone one step further, and analyzed the posters of 4 other movies like KPC; can you see the similarities too?
If you found anything else funny about the movie, or if you just want to tell us how amazing it was, *shout out in the Comments Section.*
Our more serious review of Kai Po Che
The Congress needs action. Faced with a formidable opponent led by a decisive, steely-eyed foe, they are in tatters. Sonia Gandhi has announced that she will soon announce the PM candidate for the Congress in 2014, and many names are already doing the rounds.
This weekend, a huge global blockbuster is releasing. No, not the Hobbit Part 2, why would you think that? We refer, of course, to a film which is sure to be a masterpiece, Sunny Leone’s second big Bollywood outing, the one and only 'Jackpot'
The Congress Party cannot be happy right now. After contesting in 5 states over the past few weeks, they are winning just one, the smallest of the bunch. In the others, their seat share stands at a pitiful, exam-failing 21%. Heads will roll, strategies will be debated, RaGa will emerge unscathed.
R...Rajkumar is bad. We don’t wish to spend too much time on using words to explain how bad it is because it is movies like this which prove that every second of your life is precious. Spending it on R...Rajkumar is a huge mistake. Right from the inexplicable use of fullstops in the title to the insanity that went into writing the dialogues, R...Rajkumar had us thinking about all the bad things that happened in our lives, and how they actually become good when compared to whatever it was that Prabhu Dheva was attempting.
As the economy keeps inflating, so do Bollywood collections. In no time, they’ll each be making the equivalent of the cost of one onion! We predict that the upcoming Dhoom 3 will make 300 crore. Here’s why:
Following elections in Delhi yesterday, exit polls point to the fact that the Congress is going to lose, and pretty badly. What a surprise. Not. Considering the Congress’ performance over the past few months, we’re sure pretty much ANYONE could have beaten them. Here are a few examples:
It's December, and that means we are in the holy month when Rajinikanth was born. On December 12, the man will turn 63, and his trillions of fans are
