வம்சம்Hai Guys, It had been a long time I had blogged. The London trip turns lonely and hectic than anticipated. In the weekends I go on sight seeing like a maniac and on the workdays returning to the hotel room by late. Still only way I keep entertained is by watching the stack of movies from my HDD. It was more like a linked process that one movie kindled the intrest on another for some remotely connected reasons. That's what made this movie watching a nice experience. After the count crossed five, I decided to make it as 'ten' a round figure. These are the short (4-5 lines) review of mine for these movies. For few movies, it can go still more longer.. but they deserve it. Leave your reviews in the comments.

Why IKMS? As somebody who grew on a staple diet of Rani Comics at my young age, I was looking forward for IKMS. Also the novelty factor - Cow Boy movie in Tamil Cinema after a gap of 38 years, played a role in luring me towards IKMS. (Tidbit: A few years back Telugu cinema stepped into that terrain unsuccesfully with Jayanth C Paranjpaye's "Takkiri Donga" starring Mahesh Babu, Lisa Ray and Bipasha Basu). So watching two cowboy movies at short intervals was a fun. Many people won't agree with me considering the not so good performance at the box office by these movies, but I just want to say - the movie might have failed but cow boy genre doesn't. Even though IKMS & QGM fall in same genre, they are poles apart by their approach. However the best aspect is that both are not the "Leave your brains behind" type.

Vidya BalanThis weekend I watched all these movies back to back on a Saturday night, which had been overdue for a long time - Dostana, Love Aaj Kal and Achamundu Achamundu. Why I wanted to watch these movies now, that too after an year? Each had its own reasons - while 'Dostana' had the very strong Johan Abraham factor, 'Love Aaj Kal' was mainly for Imtiaz Ali's sensitive and refreshing script, "Achamundu Achamundu" was for its offbeat theme - paedeophiles. These movies reinforced the faith that still there are people who are there to attempt different kind of movies within the commercial format. Among the last batch of movies seen, Ishqiya appealed better to me. So rather than wasting four individual posts, I just thought I can pile up everything in one post.
