Reflections of My life and My thoughts ..

The movies of 2006 ..

Posted in Musings, Reviews by Apoorv on December 29, 2006

This year was sure the best one among the past few years.Got to see some of the finest in Hindi and Telugu.
Hindi Movies we had Rang De Basanti , Lage Raho Munnabhai , Omkara , Dor , JaaneMan , Pyar ke side Effects ,Fanaa and the musical Gangster.And there were D2,Krisshh ,Don .
I loved LRM,RDB,omkara and Dor a lot.The entire gang in RDB , combination of cicuit and Munnabhai in LRM, Langda Tyagi in Omkara and Gul / shreyas / Ayesha Takia in Dor were awesome.The finest performances of the year.
After long time , we had problem of plenty.all the above mentioned four movies were good enough to make mark at oscars.
Among actors ,the year belonged to Saif for Langda Tyagi.I reckon he is one of the finest actors around ,right now.And he should get truckloads of awards for the character.
RDB had nice blend of so many actors ,all came up with good performances.Maddy excelled in cameo role he was offered.
and Shreyas Talpade was too good.Hats off to Nagesh Kukunoor ,one of my favorite directors.This guy never ceases to amaze me with beautiful subjects in each of his movie.Dor came right after Iqbal which again was a class movie.
Among actresses , the most notable was Gul Panag in Dor.That was one of the finest characters portrayed in recent times.I cant imagine anybody else doing it to perfection like her.
Kangana Ranawat excelled in both Gangster and Woh Lamhe.she is an actress to watch out .
And well , ” Shehar ki is daud mein daud ke karna kya hai……..
Agar yehi jeena hai dosto…… to phir marna kya hai… ” these lines made me watch movie umpteen number of times.Vidya Balan once again rocked ,after Parineeta.
Mallika sherawat was revealation in pyar ke side effects.for change , she acted very well 🙂 .
on the flip side,one of my favorite actresses , priyanka chopra was there doing all senseless things in Don and Krisshh…
And songs, well Rubaroo from RDB and LRM title song perk up my mood whenever I listen to them.All the Gangster songs were beautiful.Kya mujhe pyar hai from Woh Lamhe sets my feet in motion.Beedi Jalayile ,according to me took the honour of best item song.
O humdum bin tere kya jeena from Guru had some sort of soothing effect on me.
Its difficult to tell which among LRM,RDB,DOr ,Omkara is the best one.I would leave that job on filmfare juries 🙂 .

Telugu ,there were three movies which stood out.
Godavari , the third movie by Sekhar Kammula was just as brilliant as the earlier two.I loved his earlier creations Dollar Dreams and Anand a lot.
The songs,the picturisation,the calm Godavari river on which most of the movie was shot had some kind of mystic effect on me.
The next would be Bommarillu ,the feel good movie which was very well made by debutant director Bhaskar.This movie went on to become the finest movie of the year.
And there was pokiri ,which went on to become biggest telugu hit .Grapevine had it that RGV was contemplating to make it in Hindi with Abhishek.
Lets hope we get to see many such wonderful movies in 2007 .

    RDB and LRMB were quite the revaltions as far as mainstream Movies go…and Dor and Omkara succeeded even tho they were ‘offbeat’ in a way!

    And yeah, Pokiri’s being remade in Tamil and Kannada…but dunno in Hindi!
