Saala Khadoos review: Too peppy for a boxing movie

Saala Khadoos review: Too peppy for a boxing movie


Source


The banner of being a 'Raj Kumar Hirani film' does little to save 'Saala Khadoos'.  It is one of those films that try to do too many things and end up doing none right. The fact that it is a boxing movie and is so pepped up with an all too bubbly protagonist and quirky subplots doesn't help either.

Or are you beautiful because I love you?

She is the type you dream about but never really get to meet. You look around but you don't find her and give up, thinking she can only exist within stories. That particular girl may just be the one but wait, she is too haughty to fit your dream. Then there is that girl, cool, composed and nice. But she doesn’t have that magical charm about her. When you really look out for that girl, it does not matter if you are the right guy for her. That comes later. What matters is how closely she fits that idea you have for the perfect girl. And that idea too may vary from me to you and from you to the next guy who reads this blog. But what remains same is the essence of that idea, how we idealize a girl, hold her as the deity and try to find the best match possible. It isn’t objectification really and you just want to search your best. If it were to really come down to the topic of ‘what really makes you fall for a girl’, the answer would fit a bizarre combination of time spent and social niceties. But this post is above all that. We do not talk about those grey shades here and rather, we see them as they seem to us. Here is a list of the 5 girls you do not meet in your classroom, those five dream girls you can never reach but can die trying for-

Airlift: Argo without the impact

"Airlift: Schindler without the evolution, Argo without the impact."

The line- "largest evacuation in the history of the world" has a certain aura to it which grips the audiences. But you don't feel the thrill. Things move before you can care for them and the frames are rushed. Airlift is one of those films for which you care more about what they could have been instead of what they actually are.

 So here, I am going to list down the 5 fantastico places in my list that I eagerly look forward to visiting. Since I have not yet undergone the navigation through them or traveled them thoroughly, I can’t tell much about the highs and lows of it. So I am going to go by what I have heard about these places, read in reviews and why I find these places perfect for a dream outing/vacation. All are welcome to suggest their favourite travel destinations and high fives if mine match yours. Here goes the list-

A Journey Through Music and Times of Bollywood.




I originally intended to make a list of the top 10 or 15 Soundtracks of Bollywood. But not only did it pose serious conflicts of ranking, it also made me leave out some of the greatest soundtracks behind. So, in good faith of bringing out the most enjoyable and evocative list for anyone who visits this page, here is a journey of Bollywood through different times and artists marked by soundtracks that the country instantly took to and those that still linger in our fondest memories.
