I have watched a ton of movies in the last few weeks and just cant make up my mind about which one to write up, next. So, how about chipping in with your views and telling me which one you’d like to see next on Old is Gold. Here are the movies:
1.Faraar (1955): The story of an extremist freedom fighter in 1940s India. Its written by the famous Hindi writer Krishan Chander and has Dev Anand and Geeta Bali in the lead.
2.Darling Lili (1970): A spy thriller set in WWI starring Rock Hudson and Julie Andrews.
3.The Last Lear (2007): A movie within a movie, the people involved in making the movie and their lives. Arjun Ramphal, Preity Zinta, Shefali Shetty and Amitabh Bachchan star in Rituparno Ghosh’s beautiful film.
4.Ekti Raat (1956): Uttam Kumar and Suchitra Sen’s night of confusion and mayhem.
5.Ek Aur Ekk Gyarah (1981): Shashi Kapoor+Vinod Khanna+Zarina Wahab+Neetu Singh=masala romp.
6. Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998): Shahrukh Khan, Kajol and Rani Mukherjee in Karan Johar’s romantic blockbuster.
Update 6 Jan 2009:
Hmm… Equal number of takers for both The Last Lear and Ek Aur Ekk Gyarah.
1. The Last Lear (29%)
2. Ek Aur Ekk Gyarah (29%)
3. Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (20%)
4. Darling Lili (12%)
5. Ekti Raat (8%)
6. Faraar (4%)
Looks like I will have to make up my own mind after all! OK, The Last Lear coming up next and look out for the other films over the next few weeks. Fellow Shashi fans and masala lovers, do not despair. There is plenty of Shashilicious masala coming your way sooooon. In the meantime, enjoy Shashilicious eye candy in Beth’s Shashi-week celebrations!
