I love my sister.
Since I went to visit my
This film, a children's "fantasy tale" starring a metallically-coiffed Urmila Matondkar, is interesting because the footage with the children was shot about a decade before the footage with Urmila. I guess they shelved it halfway through production because they didn't have the special effects they wanted.
Starring Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, Paresh Rawal, and Tabu, I've heard that this movie is hilarious. I guess it doesn't matter how confused I am after reading the synopsis, as long as it makes me laugh.
Elaan/Dil Maange More
This double-disc features a movie that I've seen and what that I have not. One is an ensemble action film, while the other showcases Shahid Kapoor getting lots of kisses. Explosions and gunplay are always fun the second time around; I may pass on the kisses.
Kucch To Hai
I could kick myself because I meant to leave this and take Caravan. Supposedly it's a remake of I Know What You Did Last Summer starring Esha Deol (eww), Tusshar Kapoor (eww) and Natasha (I don't even know who that is).
A classic of modern Hindi cinema which I have not yet seen. From my understanding, it is particularly memorable for showcasing Jackie Shroff in a Speedo. Also starring Aamir Khan and Urmila Matondkar in this class-struggling love triangle.
Badhaai ho Badhaai
On the cover there is a photo of a very happy yet somewhat obese man, photoshopped next to a scantily clad Shilpa Shetty. Also starring Anil Kapoor and Kirti Reddy.
Chor Machaaye Shor
This one cured Fireball of her Bobby Deol crush. Since I don't have that affliction, I'm wondering if it's worth three hours of my time. Also stars Shilpa Shetty and Bipasha Basu, and is directed by David Dhawan (who served up some forgettable fun previously in movies like Dulhan Hum Le Jayenge and Mujhse Shaadi Karoge).
Awara Paagal Deewana
The DVD case calls this an "action-packed comedy." I really don't care what you call it, as long as cuties Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, and Aftab Shivdasani get plenty of screentime.
What can be greater than watching a Sridevi film? Watching a Sridevi film sans subtitles!
This is an old one starring Sanjeev Kumar and Jaya Bhaduri (now Bachchan). The synopsis on the back isn't helpful, but there is a picture of Helen in an outrageously mod outfit, so I think I'll like this one.
Starring Ajay Devgan, Akshaye Khanna, and Urmila Matondkar, this initially seemed to be another classic love-triangle film. After reading the back, though, it appears that this movie is actually a murder mystery concerning the music industry and spelling errors.
I've been waiting to see this tricky action movie for a while. Even though the ending's been spoiled, I'm looking forward to watching the ensemble cast (including Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgan, Aishwarya Rai, Akshay Kumar) seduce/betray/shoot at each other.
Jaanam Samjha Karo
Fireball said that, while this isn't such a good movie, she liked it anyway. Stars Urmila Matondkar and Salman Khan.
Asha Parekh's got back, Shammi Kapoor's got hair, Helen's got a dance number. That's all you need to know about this fun and hilarious murder mystery from the sixties.
The only two of these movies that I've seen (besides the aforementioned Lajja) are Teesri Manzil and Elaan. That leaves me with a staggering thirteen films to watch, and I don't know where to start. I don't want to go from my anticipated greatest to least, because then I'll never watch them all. I also don't want to go through them chronologically. I don't know! I just don't know!
