Aaja Dhoom machale Dhoom

If there is one movie I have no views to share on, it's Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna. Contrary to what the title begs, I prefer to do just the opposite. And for good. Why? All I'll say is you expect to see a Hailey's comet and end up watching an inflated balloon in the sky.Yeah so what if it has all these fantastic actors, gorgeous locations, dressy sets, peppy songs and a dying-to-be-different storyline? It’s still an inflated balloon. So we’ll let it stay in air and proceed to fresher pastures – the B-I-G-G-I-E-S!

Have you seen the promos of Dhoom 2? They look absolutely swashbuckling. It looks like the kind of movie that gives popcorn a good name. I hope that’s the case.

And then there is Don. Man, Farhan Akhtar is sure in sticky spot. It’s a no-win situation for the man who made Dil Chahta Hai and Lakshya. See, it’s very simple. If he remains faithful to the Big B classic, he’ll be under attack. If he strays too much, he’ll be under attack. But thanks to Shah Rukh Khan and good luck Chopra, Priyanka not Prem, a promising opening is already in the bag. The trailer looks all right, I thought. It sure looks glossy if nothing else. Will it work? What do you think?As for what I think?

Lage Raho Munnabhai is where my bets lie. I love how the word ‘hope’ springs up at the mention of every forthcoming flick. But I truly hope the jolly good duo of Munna and Circuit regales us yet again with their tapori brand of masti and banter. And it won't echo of the Phir Hera Pheri disappointment.So which one is it going to be for you? Dhoom 2, Don or Lage Raho Munnabhai?
