Mumbai Diaries – DHOBI GHAT

I am back (U must be thinkin ,”Itna jaldi?????” , but sorry guys,cud nt wait till d weekend for this one 😉 ). This is yet another of my personal take on one of my latest movie picks”Dhobi Ghat” as the movie is popularly known as, but i like to refer to it  as MUMBAI DIARIES!!!!, i think this better reflects the mood and content of the movie.  Hmmmmm……. so you waiting for the verdict, before giving that, let me make a statutory warning message display. “This post is not meant for anyone who is not a sincere and dedicated lover of movies, and watch them just for fun sake ”  .

 So as far as my review for the movie goes, I DIDN’T LIKE THE MOVIE.!!!!!!
 but actually , LOVED IT!!!!!! After a long gap of, i suppose years, i have come across a brilliant and intelligent piece of work, full of creativity.

The movie revolves around 4 main characters  – Munna (Prateek Babbar), Arun (Aamir), Yasmeen (kriti Malhotra) and Shay (Monica Dogra).In contradiction to your expectations, its nt Aamir who catches your attention , but actually the other 3, their performance is way above that of Aamir’s.Prateik surely tells it loud that he inherits the acting genes from none other than the great Smita Patil (I adore her , never came across anyone as natural as her 🙂 ). But as it was written in the review given in TOI, apart from the 4 characters, the most astonishing work is done by the 5th artist, The Camera!!!, it has captured the real face of mumbai, feel of the lively and effervescent city in its exact sense. 

Kiran Rao as a debutant is impressive, has dealt with the nuances of the story very maturely and has shown that she is an artist to watch out for.The blend of the four stories, great dialogues and brilliant performances make the movie a treat for the art lovers.!!!!!



Someone who thinks too much, has opinions about almost everything on face of this earth, a bit disoriented from the usual & normal way of living , and overtly disconnected from the mainstream. A voracious reader, food lover, and a movie buff with creative streaks here and there.
