ATIF ASLAM in Indore!!!

Artist in spotlight : Atif Aslam

Atif Aslam's first live concert in Indore and I missed it :(
Althought I have attended his concert in pune but that was a long time back ..............
Anyways a friend of mine Omar attended this concert and here you are with the review of the concert in his words :-
"Atif Aslam performed at Winway Garden,Indore, on the night of 23rd November. Apparently this was the first time he was performing in Indore. He said that he had to catch 4 flights to get there. As I have been to his concert before, I knew what to expect. His live performances are electric and listening to the songs you love live is a different experience altogether.
There was a slight delay due to technical reasons, but once Atif Came on to the stage, everyone was is high spirits. He started out with his massive hit Woh Lamhe and from that moment itself crowd was in love with him. He then dedicated his personal favourite classic Gulabi Aankhein to everyone gathered there.
Then by the time he moved on to his other hits like Tu Jaane na, Pehli nazar mein and doorie everyone was singing along. Everyone gave Atif and his band a rousing reception when he performed his last song. The event was organized very well and the stage prepared for the concert was complimented the whole environment .It was a night to remember, hope he comes back to Indore soon!!!!!!"

Even I want Atif Aslam back in Indore for me .............but I guess that is a bit too much to ask from a star like Atif Aslam .So here I m waiting for Atif aslam to come back for me and for all those who have missed this concert .

Son Of Sardaar review

Son Of Sardaar ,SOS, directed by Ashwani Dhir(Atithi Tuj Kab Jaoge) produced by Ajay Devgun and music by Himesh Reshammiya starring Ajay Devgan , Sonakhsi Sinha , Sanjay Dutt , Juhi Chawla in lead role.
SOS is a remake of telugu movie Maryada Ramanna by Rajmouli which was also remade in kannada and bengali .


All the character were well played by various actors. Ajay Devgan's performance is good but not very good. He is playfull, strong, romantic all in extremes . Sonakshi Sinha is playing her stereotype role from Dabangg  and Rowdy Rathore. Few characters that stand out were Juhi Chawla , Tanuja and Mukul Dev. Juhi Chawla adds warmth to her character , whereas Tanuja is spot on with her performance.

Story starts with Ajay Devgun(Jassi) is working with Salman Khan and his uncle in UK and he has to come back to India to claim his ancestral land .He meets Sonakshi Sinha (Sukh) on his way which leads him to her home as guest . Where he finds that Sukh belongs to the same family who wants him dead because family feud and all he can do to remain alive is to be in same house with sukh and family. This is all about the story.

The first half of the movie is full on with comedy , south Indian style fighting scenes in short full masala .
whereas the second half is completely opposite flat jokes , lost story makes it hard to survive this second half.
If you want to go out and watch a movie this Diwali season , definitely go for SOS.
Condition apply : Do not expect any interesting story  so do not use your brains .
So let yourself loose and relax , enjoy the light comedy of SOS (atleast the first part of it).

I would rate this movies as 3/5

Hope it helps.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan Review

Jab Tak Hai Jaan, A typical Indian romance film directed by Yash Chopra and written and produced by Aditya Chopra under their production banner Yash Raj Films, featuring ShahRukh Khan,Katrina Kaif,Anushka Sherma in leading roles.
With Shah Rukh Khan as Samar and Katrina Kaif as Meera and Anushka Sherma as Akira Rai ,movie starts with Akira dives in the ice cold water just for a bet and major Samar Anand protects her from drowning and gives her his coat . The whole Samar Meera love story is in flash back when akira finds his dairy from his jacket. Now the character Meera is the most stupid character ever..... the whole superstitious act is so 80's ........ but Katrina adds a particular softness to the character, whereas the character Samar is stereotyped Shah Rukh Khan and the character Akira is a bold beautiful bindass badass girl from Delhi.

Katrina is looking fabulous as ever, SRK has done amazing work, amazing locations, few beautiful songs thanx to A.R Rahman, the concept of "The man who cannot die" reminds you of the hurt locker. And that's about all that there is in the movie.
There is nothing to like in this movie , when you watch it all you can think of is Yash Chopra . It is like shradhanjali to Yash Chopra , his whole life's work put together.
But if you watch it as just a movie there is nothing new to it, it is more like an 80's movie played by new characters.
A word of caution if you are a big fan of chick flick stay away ....... even if you are a fan don't expect much from the movie.
I would rather rate this film as 2.5/5 .
Hope it helps .

I miss going home for diwali ........A small pray for Diwali

This is my first personal post on my blog , so let me tell you guys something about myself first ......
I m basically from Indore ,did my schooling here and then went to Pune for engineering I was in Pune for almost 4 and a 1/2 years, now I am doing M.B.A from Indore . Today was my last exam and from tomorrow officially our college is off for Diwali .......

All my friends are going back to there hometown to there parents for Diwali whereas "I am going nowhere"  . Sounds silly isn't it, but seriously when I was in hostel after two-tree months of hostel ,I use to cherish my home as if it was royal .I m not saying my home is not royal to me now, but things are different now.I am home already, I don't miss home made food anymore.

Just two months of new college new friends and I m sad of thinking of days without them, or maybe I m sad that I do not get to see a change in environment this holiday season.
I m really praying hard for something exciting to happen on this Diwali, please god Do something to make this Diwali special , everyone deserves to be happy on Diwali , hoping for some miracle to happen on this festival season ..... signing out

Hope your Diwali is safe and exciting <3

Skyfall review


The film was directed by Sam Mendes and written by John LoganNeal Purvis and Robert WadeSkyfall is the twenty-third spy film in the James Bond series

Cast from left to right  :

Ben Whishaw as Q
Rory Kinnear as Bill Tanner
Bérénice Marlohe as Sévérine
Daniel Craig as James Bond
Naomie Harris as Eve moneypenny
Albert Finney as Kincade
Judi Dench as M
Javier Bardem as Raoul Silva

The bond franchise is back with a bang. Casino royale was a land mark bond film and the next installment quantum of solace was a bit of a let down. With Skyfall, bond is back with a bang. Bringing in Oscar winning director Sam Mendes was a stroke of genius, being a British director he understands that the script and story are the heart and soul of the film.
There is a stunning opening sequence which tops the one in Casino Royale. Shot in Istanbul, turkey it involves a bike chase and hand to hand combat on a moving train.Also there is a reference to you only live twice with the absence of bond for a while in the movie and then he comes back. Javier Bardem brilliantly plays the bond Villain. He plays a futuristic Bond villain a computer hacker specializing in cyber terrorism. He gives a very unhinged performance and is easily the most memorable Bond villain of recent times. His opening sequence, where he takes a long walk towards bond giving a speech is chilling.
A new Q is introduced in this film played by Ben wishaw, who is considerably much younger than his previous counterparts. All he gives Bond is a gun and a radio, in a world where technology is everywhere this makes a lot of sense.
What is at the heart of the story is the relationship between Bond and M. Ralph fieness character at a point in the film asks Bond that why did he come back. The answer to this question is what drives the film. Both Bond and Silva (Javier Bardem) share a very personal relationship with M, this is a very interesting aspect of the film. Even while you get all the spectacular set pieces and great action what sets this bond film apart from the others is that it has a very coherent central idea.
This is a very British Bond film, with almost the entire second act shot in England. The film steps back into Bonds past in the second act. Without giving too much away, Bond trying to protect M and Defending all that he has left from his ancestry is unlike any climax of a Bond film.
On the technical aspects of the film it is beautifully shot and very well edited. M played by Judi Dench completely overshadows the bond girls and gives a remarkable performance. Overall this is arguably the best Bond film yet .
After reading the review do you think there is any need to give stars  ?? :)
