I know MdSalih is one.

If you are, go check out Kal Ho Na Ho. Shah Rukh Khan proves once again he is the best actor in Bollywood.

Blah. I think he's an awesome actor. To each his own I suppose. But you should check this movie out dude. :)

edit: What I really liked about this movie is the fact that it didn't follow the run-of-the-mill bollywood plot. All the actors played their parts quite well as well.

I haven't seen a GOOD bolly flick since the days of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Border... a coupla good slapstick flicks but nothing that really made me sit up and take attention...

that and the fact I have been watching more indie flicks :)

My thoughts exactly.

You didn't like Lagaan? :eek: Or did you not watch it?
I agree though, there haven't been many truly good ones during the last few years.

well with the way movies come to america :) I may have put things a little out of perspective...

I get dvd's from time to time... I watched lagaan before I watched either Border or Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam...

Lagaan was good flick... loved the songs too...

still I would love for more of the southern directors to make an impression in the north... films like Roja/Dalpati and the like... those I like... they have good thematic music and performances... the rest of the crap really is an insult to ones intelligence... but I might check out o_87's suggestion... it should probably be in stores here...

Lagaan, Dil Chahta Hai, Bombay, Dil Se, Roja...some of the others you mentioned. Ahh, those took the crown.
As for this new one Omar is talking about...I'm not sure. I've heard mixed reviews of it from numerous friends. Some loved it, others hated it beyond words. Guess the only way to find out is to watch it, huh?
;)

dil chahta hai was a different kinda flick.. run of the mill with a twist so to speak and I liked the difference :)

there are some flicks that come by once in a while... but few really blow me away...

Naseer and Paresh Rawail in SIR were brilliant... the best performance I have seen from them and wasted in a crap flick... such a shame... same with nana patekar in Commando...

Amitabh in Agneepath as well though... THAT was superb... take away the masala dances and crap with Mithun and that movie ranks as my fav...

back in the day they had better story lines and acting... when amitabh ruled the roost it was on the back of pretty good scripts... excellent performances...

now... shah rukh and co... not much to write home about... shah rukh's best performances to date were in his first few movies... when he was fresh... now its all just hype...

true but the bloody cricket match could have been a little shorter and the actors given a little better training wrt their actions I think...

I mean ffs I am a cricketer and there is no way in hell that I could conceivably pull or hook or slice any shots to the fence or over it for that matter with the crappy motions they were pulling...

:cool:

I am just hard to please as you may have noticed lol...

yah but they can at least somewhat learn to play the game..

some of the brits and some of the villagers were ok but the majority sucked... even in primary school our cricketers were not that bad and somehow these fella's scored half-centuries and centuries :rolleyes:

lol... its fun to watch but it bugged me while I was watching it
