Quick review: Johnny Gaddar and Proof.
The movie is a couple of years old, and I was sorry to miss it then. But it was almost better to see it now, when it brought back memories of the Chicago campus. The story, acting (especially Paltrow) and direction is, predictably, really, really good, but the shots of Lake Shore Drive, downtown Chicago and the I-90/94 highway made the movie for me. :)
Ooo...I really liked this one. The following holds true about mainstream Bollywood movies:
There aren't many good thrillers; there aren't many movies that are extremely well-directed; there aren't many movies that respect the intelligence of the audience; there aren't many movies that show locations Pune that I recognize,; there aren't many movies that pay homage to old Bollywood movies well.
This one does all of em. Its actually easily the best thriller I've seen this year period.
