Starred Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif. Both were just beefcake. This film was a Bollywood remake of the terrible Tom Cruise film, Knight and Day, proving Bollywood can take any horrid movie and make it even worse. (links removed to avoid 404 error)
The premise defeats itself almost as soon as it is offered. The #1 terrorist wanted by India is captured by the Brits. He seeks to avoid being sent back to India by disrupting an extradition treaty by having the Kohinoor diamond
stolen. However, literally 10 seconds after he suggests this, he is broken out of jail, thus negating the need to avoid extradition.
Interesting bits about it:
- I discovered the deep and abiding anger Indians have over the Kohinoor diamond. When it is stolen from London Tower, it shows all of India rejoicing and celebrating the thief. Attention India: it’s just a rock, not your national soul. Get over it.
- I discovered Roshan has three thumbs, two on one hand.
At first I thought it was effects make-up, but when I saw it had no bearing on the story or the plot, I realized it was really him. Kinda gross.
- Katrina Kaif is kinda hot – she’s got some junk in that trunk - but I’d call her a butter face. Plus, I think she is going to have weight issues, sooner than later. Ernest & Celestine
An adorable animated film about a mouse and bear who become friends. For small kids and adults, but I don’t think anyone in between would appreciate it. Prince Avalanche
Two guys painting lines on roads and putting in reflector posts in rural Texas after massive fire. Stars Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch. Both gave very good performances. Rather slow, but I thought the photography and music were excellent.
