Movies

It had been a long time I had watched a movie on big screen...last weekend I guess I more than made up for it!

Sarkar (with Venki, Fri)...Ram Gopal Varma's tribute to The Godfather...2 hour movie with no songs, amazing background music with matching performances from all - especially Abhiskek Bachan who manages to go beyond his famous father Big B - both in the story as well as the performance! Good 2 hours with Venki :-)

War of the Worlds (with Shashi, Sat) - Steven Spielberg's adaptation of W.G.Wells novel. This has nothing new to add to all the movies about aliens invading the earth and how we manage to fight back - except - story telling from the perspective of a father Tom Cruise who fights against odds to hold on to his kids. The best part was the tickets were sold out - until somebody cancelled their bookings and we managed to get them in the nick of time!

Annniyan (watched at home on Sunday) - by Shankar and Vikram, another movie where the hero has multiple personality disorder and his take on the people in the system who don't do what they are supposed to do. Time pass movie on a raining Sunday evening!
