A FLYING JATT - Begins as a fine one time watch spoof but ends with a painfully long second half using a deliberate 'Religious Card' backed by an incomplete awareness. (Review By Bobby Sing).

HAPPY BHAG JAYEGI - A below average, feel good romantic comedy made on a repetitive predictable plot, once again trying to encash PAKISTAN as a comic element. (Review By Bobby Sing).

The inspirations behind SWADES (2004), including a '90s TV series where the director himself played the role of SRK. - By Bobby Sing (BTC Exclusive) (Did You Know - 87).

RUSTOM - Where the first half presents the real life case sensibly, the second half purposefully uses it as a spoof, resulting in a one-time watch crime drama that should have been just between Akshay and Pavan alone. (Review By Bobby Sing).

MOHENJO DARO - Its criminal to choose & agree to this kind of poor script for such a scale, investment and collective efforts by all. (Review By Bobby Sing).

GELO (Punjabi) - Despite its visible shortcomings, this is an appreciable attempt reviving the rich Punjabi literature & its inspiringly bold vision, especially for the young viewers. (Review by Bobby Sing).

BUDHIA SINGH BORN TO WIN - A well-made film on an amazing real life story that leaves you with a severe shock & many unanswered questions in mind raising an important debate. (Review By Bobby Sing).

FEVER - An overstretched thriller that stresses more on long conversations and steamy scenes than its mystery element. (Review By Bobby Sing).

THE LEGEND OF MICHAEL MISHRA - Once again a weird film forcing you to think that how such projects get approved and then made too without any alarm raised in time. (Review by Bobby Sing).

CHAUTHI KOOT (Punjabi) - A perfect example of cinematic art of storytelling with a thoughtful depiction of the dark times in Punjab, without any typical provocative inclusions or the usual biased stuff. (An overview by Bobby Sing).

Hu Tu Tu - Bobby Talks Cinema.com

"Hu Tu Tu" is Gulzar's second movie on women in politics, the first being "Aandhi". The latest has Suhasini Mulay as the women leader, Tabu as her daughter and Sunil Shetty as Tabu’s love interest. The main male lead is Nana Patekar playing the right hand of Suhasini. Nana is from a lower caste and takes care of the voter bank of his community.
 
The film revolves around the inner games of politicians and their relations with the terrorists. It shows how politicians use their people and how they don’t even care about their family responsibilities while looking at the opportunities of moving higher in their careers. The turn in the script comes when Suhasini’s own followers and her family both go against her. The climax is well shot and scripted. A few songs are well written and brilliantly composed by Vishal Bhardwaj.
 
But the film is less impactful than "Aandhi". May be because this is on a more bolder subject. And news was also there indicating that the final edit of the movie was not done according to Gulzar's vision for some unknown reasons. Still with Nana in top form and Tabu giving him ample support, it is a Gulzar masterpiece and a treat to watch.

Directed By Gulzar
Starring : Nana Patekar, Tabu, Sunil Shetty & Suhasni Muley
Music By Vishal Bhardwaj

“Goal” moves around a usual sports theme where a grand win towards the climax is completely predictable. But the movie also has very close similarities with an English flick  based on a similar theme called “Dodgeball” (2004).

Listing the common points in both the movies, we have, a team of wanna be champions, a club/stadium to be saved from being sold, a certain sum to be paid in order to save it, that amount is planned to be collected by winning a championship and then the tough target is achieved with the help of a not in form coach. Everything is there in “Dodgeball” as well as in “Goal”.
 
Further it also has some acute similarities with "We Are Marshal" (2006) which also revolves around a very similar plot.

Lakhon Ki Baat - Bobby Talks Cinema.com

Here is Basu Chatterjee at his best. The director is in his full form in this comedy featuring the talented Sanjeev Kumar, the inimitable Farookh Sheikh and the one & only Utpal Dutt. People filing suits against some big companies is a common thing in the west, but its very rare in our part of the world. The film is based on this plot only when Farrukh tries to earn money by filing a suit against a company with the help of his lawyer played by Sanjeev Kumar. Uptpal Dutt is the opposition lawyer hired by the rival company. The scenes of confrontation between Sanjeev & Utpal Dutt are pure fun and hilarious. Anita Raaj is also fine as the love angle in the plot. One of the best comedy films of the 80s. A must watch for the comedy lovers and for people who love Hrishikesh Mukherjee kind of Cinema. 
 
Though the movie also features in my Inspired Cinema list (since takes it all from a Western Classic), but still it gets into my Must Watch List too, as it is a entertaining quality comedy.

Directed By Basu Chatterjee
Starring : Sanjeev Kumar, Farukh Sheikh & Utpal Dutt
