In short, a leader

I watched this movie a couple of days back. It was reviewed by a pretty cynical critic on rediff that it’s a must watch; so thought to myself why not take a look at it? And I must say, the movie is brilliant - from direction to acting, the background music, a tight script and [...]

Some like it hot

Can you spot the 2 gents in this pic?
If you haven’t got a chance to see this 1959 classic (in my hall of fame) then waste no time and rent a DVD. The classy sense of humour that is so much a part of the yesteryear movies keeps you smiling throughout the film. And the [...]

Surprisingly last morning I woke up before my alarm started screeching “That thing you do” (pun not intended)..reason being I wanted to make my bladder gladder. [...]

Pillow Talk

Saw this movie a few days back. A must see, with witty dialogues and hilarious situations. A great romantic comedy, Rock Hudson at his usual best - charming the ladies , and Doris Day. The other 2 films I’ve seen them in are Lover Come Back (quite similar to Pillow Talk) and Send me no [...]
