It's been quite some time since i complained about Indian cinema. I guess, it's time for me to do it again. I've hardly seen any new movies, recently. But, yes. I did watch some not-so-old ones.
Today, i saw Mussanje Maathu.
Perhaps, the various reviews that i received made me go to the theatre to catch this up. And my folks wanted us to go. So i had to.
It's boring, to say the least. I was squirming in my seat throughout the length of the movie. The story, i bet is repeated a hundred times over. Except that we have some bright colours here and there.
Sudeep overacts. Big time. He reminds me of Shah Rukh Khan. The latter's style, his expressions, body language, everything is overdone. Mr. Sudeep, can you please cut down on these aspects, please.
The songs are forgettable. In fact each scene is. I could never find one memorable instance worth the ticket.
At times, i see this show on CNN-IBN, that features, opinions on the week's movies. The host, there, slams a 'bad' movie. Reasonable enough. We'd obviously praise a good film, wouldn't we? Why can't we have a similar show on one of the Kannada channels, which analyses films in a pretty accurate manner. Somebody should declare a movie 'stupid', if it is. But, every movie is praised by some channel.
Nothing is exciting about Mussanje Maatu. You can as well watch repeated telecasts of Full House. Or, simply, look out of the window. The night sky is wonderful, decked up with the moon and stars.
