2 movies.


I watched two movies this week on cable: Internship, and Highway.


#Internship is an-Okay-watch-it-on-dvd-or-at-HBO type movie. A comedy drama of two 70s born middle aged guys:  Vince Vaughn as Billy McMahon  and  Owen Wilson as Nick Campbell, who   are interns at Google after losing their jobs as watch salesmen. These fast talking, old school sales guys  did their best  to  find their way in today's digital world.

 Google was everywhere. There was  office politics, leg pulling. tech-savvy college kids.

It was typical Vaugh and Owen movie. They know together they are always good,  however just don't accept anything like Wedding Crasher. It is not Wedding Crasher from any angle. Like I said it is a time pass flick. I personally like these easy watch comedy flicks on Sundays  at HBO, so I enjoyed it.

 Randeep Hooda and Alia Bhatt starter #Highway .....“In bondage, she found freedom.” is not just a  different than other Bollywood's  masala flick. It is a journey.
"I don't want to go back to where you brought me from; I don't want to reach where you are taking me, all I know is this journey." 
 
There comes a time in life when we all want to run so far away from our lives. Maybe not all of us, but  some of us def want to. Some are happy where thet are, some are not. Some has scape streak. Some live their lives as they are living.

Yes, it is so good to be free. But no ones wants to be kidnapped to be free.

This happened to Veera(Alia Bhaat) when she  says to her fiance' lets run away." just at the time when everything was ready to the big day____their wedding.  She just  had no idea she is gonna be kidnapped later.  Falling in love  with your  kidnapper is not much digestable, but he was the one who freed her.

 Imtiaz always make such entertaining flicks, however it was definitely Alia Bhaat's flick. She was in her element. She was scared, she was free. She was helpless, she was happy.

This was the first time I watched Randeep in  any flick. He was perfect for the role.

A.R Rehman gave the music. Do I need to say anything more ?

Listening Patakha Guddi all day .

  1. Regarding "Internship": I don't like Vince Vaughn much, I think he's kind of a pig (long story), but in relation to the digital age, I always like to relate this story: When I left the Marines, I had just come back from Japan. During our transition classes, they told us about this brand new thing called the "world wide web" and "electronic mail". Considering we'd just been paying ridiculous amounts for phone calls, and waiting two weeks to have a letter delivered, we were very skeptical. Yesterday, I had a VoIP conference call with a company in Pennsylvania, tomorrow, I'll meet with one of my professors and 9 other students on Adobe's connect platform. As we speak, I'm commenting on a blog from Pakistan...crazy, fast world we live in!

  2. Internship looks like a nice movie I have to see. Especially when I am also an intern at the moment.

  5. Oh! I watched Highway in the cinema. It is definitely a good movie. What I loved the most it's not a typical Bollywood movie.

  7. Not a movie person--me. But I can say you are def a critic who can reach out to a future audience, allowing them to make up their minds. You not swayed by the politics, just say enough that Peeps will know if they gonna like it or not...GOOD writing--you!
