Random: Ghajini and Outliers

Ghajini: Saw it over the weekend. Very well-made movie. Despite the nice songs and the romance, the only thing that stays with you after the movie is the raw violence. Aamir Khan is exceptional. Overall, a must-watch (once).

Outliers: This is a new book by Malcolm Gladwell (author of “The Tipping Point” and “Blink”). The book is about “the story of success.” And as is Gladwell’s style, there are plenty of fascinating stories in it. A good quick read, it leaves you with enough to think about.

On a separate note, a movie I watched on TV on one of those lonely nights (since Bhavana and Abhishek were away in Surat) was James Bond’s “Casino Royale.” The poker contest in the movie was especially engrossing. Have recommended that the next cards party I participate in Pune with my cousins be around the variation of poker showcased in the movie, Texas Hold ’em.

  4. You saw the movie is it? like wht u said the movie was nice and awesome!!!!!!!but i do not think tht the movie contains much violence.(according to me).BUT the songs will definetly become a hit like in the kollywood.

  5. gladwell is good… real good.. read the previous two,will most definitely read this one too.. by the way,the book by greogory berns that you recommended is superb… reading it now..

  6. unsubscribing from this blog for it reviewing bollywood movies. Thanks for all the fish.

  7. I think I saw Ghajini around the same time as you. However, I walked out with the biggest headache possible. Just the volume of the music is enough to turn one off, and along with that is the length of the movie.

    Although the concept is great its been dragged out too much and perhaps included too many tamil movie like stunts, such as the cop running after the bus and managing to climb on to find him gone.

    Not exactly something to plug!

  8. Hi Rajesh,

    Compared to the actual South movie the violence in hindi gajini is negligible. In general all the remakes are just a true copy of the original south movies but Gajini is different as there are lot of changes in the last 30 mins of the movie. hats off to aamir & his brain
