15 Park Avenue:
Language : English
One of the nice movies I saw recently. Basically, this is a very intellectual movie directed by one of the prolific indian directors, Aparna Sen. She is a famous bengali director who basically directs art/parallel cinema. No doubt this movie is a master piece for those who can actually like art movies. The film deals with a girl who is a schizophrenic and her relations with her elder stepsister.
The movie revolves around few characters like Konkana Sen Sharma( girl with the disease ) and Shabana Azmi ( Konkana's step sister ). It basically deals with the illusions of the people with that disease and influence of the same with the family members/relatives. The movie starts with a point where the ill girl searching for her home 15 park avenue in Kolkata which doesn't exist. From there starts entering each character into the story which makes it deep and strong.
What makes this movie amazing is the climax. I was shocked to see the end where there wont be any answer for the question. Its basically left to our imagination/illusion to conclude the story. People with different mentalities conclude the story in their own way which is superb.

Another masterpiece from Mohanlal(popular malayalam artist). This is more similar to the above movie, but deals with another type of disease called Alzheimer. The difference is that Thanmathra is more of natural and realistic. Meaning, it deals with very common person undergoing it and his family suffering due to that. Once again an extra ordinary acting my mohanlal after Vanaprastham. The screenplay is amazing.
I am watching all the national award winning movies these days irrespective of language..:). Actually I am also interested to develop nice stories like these. But need a producer to make these stories into movies...ha ha ha..
Anyways, I strongly recommend you guys to watch these movies If you have patience and interest in artistic movies.

On the other side of the coin, a must watch action packed entertainer. The star cast is cool and interesting to see on the screen. Keeping apart the flaws in the movie(after all a commercial movie is to enjoy), this is a suspense thriller. I dont want to reveal any secret here as I want you to see on the screen. Foot tapping disco/rock type music is a plus point. Saif ali khan looked more mature in his acting. And the main reason for me to watch this movie is director duo Abbas-Mustan who are specialists in making such action movies. BTW, this is a nice weekend movie.
