Total trash

There is a movie called American Desi in which the guy and the girl watch a hindi movie together. The guy is an ABCD and gets frustrated after watching the movie and tells the girl "I've seen porn movies with a better storyline". Since then I've been keeping track of such worse-than-porn movies. And looks like Kabhi Alvida na kehna qualifies as one. I got the following as a FWD and its funny.

CHARACTERS: BOY1, BOY2, GIRL1, GIRL2, PARENTS

BOY 1 loves GIRL 1.
BOY 2 loves GIRL 2.
PARENTS MAKE THE DECISION.
BOY 1 MARRIES GIRL 2.
BOY 2 MARRIES GIRL 1.
BOY 1 ? GIRL 2 ? UNHAPPY
BOY 2 ? GIRL 1 ? UNHAPPY
BOY 1 still loves GIRL 1
BOY 2 still loves GIRL 2
PARENTS COME TO KNOW AGAIN. DECISION MADE.
BOY 1 MARRIES GIRL 1.
BOY 2 MARRIES GIRL 2.
HAPPY ENDING!!!

Not to be too harsh on the storyline, things like this do happen!

That being said, I am not a fan of Hindi cinema as such :)

What more can you expect from Karan Johar or a non-Aamir hindi movie? Karan Johar fails to realise that he could do better making movies like Brokeback Mountain with Shah Rukh and him as the cast :)

Anyways, you saved me time and money, Deepa!

I like this story. How many songs in the movie? Anyday better than one boy, one girl love stories with girl's father as the villain. Sounds like there is a lot of scope for Sharukh's emotion. Kkkkkkk Kiran.

It is indeed a infy originated forward. you should check the ones on Sivaji....its hilarious....

But thiking back DDLJ was also typically one of these kinds. one girl one boy, father villain, finally accepts... but it ran for a year. so don't be too suprised if this one becomes a super-hit.

It would def be a hit, no doubt it. There r still fools in our country and abroad who wont mind watching Shah Rukh and Rani in even crap movies...

I might watch it for Preity.

Anusha, Ubayam : IFFA awards show?

Deepz, how can you.. i mean how... how .. can you forget Amitabh Bachchan's role in the film?
He's probably a well-wisher of both families.. who has had a similar past.. loved someone* and married someone else#, who died of cancer.. Amitabh bachchan advises both couples with his "is mutti ki aag se ladi hui hoton mein bas yun hi chalta raha.. chalta raha..yeh khwaishein kabhi poori nahin hotee" [yarukkavadu purinjadha? enakku purila]

*Jaya bacchan- guest role and is probably cast as rani or shahrukh's mother in the film.
# rekha ?? [aasa dosa]
# waheeda-ji? with her crisp cotton saree and matching pearl necklace.
# Sharmila tagore
# hemamalini

1 hero + 1 heroine = boring film
2 heros + 2 heroines = stupid film
0 hero + 0 heroine = camera film...

No bubby. I always used to think of Karan Johar like that especially after his Koffee with Karan shows which had Shah Rukh appearing many many times...

I read in papers that Mr India commented the same abt him...:)

Hey Deepa,

Why dont u watch a movie called "mixed doubles".That would top ur list I guess :D ..
KANK ...I m not watching it for a single reason ..Karan Johar!!

Anusha: There are some good non- aaamir hindi movies that are coming these days.Iqbal,Bluffmaster,Taxi no. ??Lets not generalize that all hindi movies are crap.Given the std of tamil, mal movies coming these days !!!

Anusha: Mr India said this in one of the post-show charity talk show stuff organized by the IFFA awards organisers.

Deepz: solla marandutten.. inda dialogue-a solli solliye Amitabh mandaya podum.. aduvum mookkula pipe-ellam vecchundu (inda scene a trailor la pottuttan.. ada paatudan sollaren). Shahrukh Khan looks like a kezha-bolt in the trailors with all his narambu podanjufying out of his neck. Did you notice that? Preity zinta ade bonda-bajji vaai-la uttering dialogues.

Btw, inga mumbai mazhaila Aaj Tak channel la enna breaking news teryuma? "Baarish ki vajeh se Kabhi alvida naa kehna shooting cancelled.. Babul film shooting cancelled" .. enakku ida paatutu aart-aataack-e vanduduchu.. aayo Deepa-voda feevarat filim sooting caanceel aagipocheenu..kavala padada kannu.. seekrama padatha release panniduvaan Kkkkaran jogar.. meyyalumadaan!

You are welcome Syam and Taruna and I thank the guy that FWD-ed it to me.:-)
Oracle, I am not associated with Infy, didn't get it from any Infy friend and I am definitely not on bench.
Casement, from who?
Prabhu, are you sure things like this happen?
Good Luck Ginks.
Anusha, Brokeback is beyond Karan johar.
Srini,I heard that too. Is the shooting over yet?
D The D, thanks.
Rajesh, tell me about it. ShahRukh - too stale.
Ajay, I liked K3G a little coz of the feel-good factor.
Lauvoo, you are right. I cant wait for rediff review that would go gaga about this movie.;-)
Bubby, manchikko. Camera illama padam edukka mudiyum but Amitabh illaama mudiyadhu.
rads, its because of people like you and me that movies like this make some money (thru DVD sales);-)
Sabass Me.
Vinod, gonna watch mixed doubles.

To extend me's concept further:
1 hero + 1 heroine = boring film
2 heros + 2 heroines = stupid film
0 hero + 0 heroine = camera film...

1 hero + 3 heroines = telugu film :)

haha....Truly so. You think...so right, Karan J. should change the way he potrays his individuals and the sad+romantic+sad-sense stories.

And you won't believe it! I haven't seen the movie hehe...I thought Omkaara was fabulous!
