Tuesday At The Movies: Youtube, Turning 30, Mockingjay 1, Badlapur

After the lull of two weeks I’m back to watching movies and trying to catch up with that 100 number. There’s all the various miscellaneous movies I have on my list to get done, some of which I listed out last week – 12 Old Hindi Movies I Must Watch This Year.

I’ve been trying to add all these movies to some kind of to-watch list to make it easy and more organised to meet my years movie targets. And with this in mind have been exploring Youtube and it’s various functionalities apart from rendering videos.

Youtube seems to have quite an impressive collection in their movies section. Not all are free but the pricing doesn’t seem too bad either. I wouldn’t mind spending Rs.100 for a movie on demand if it means less sourcing, finding, downloading et. all. And most of the old classics are free, so it’s a yippee here. 😀

I’m going to be digging into Youtube more to figure out the various way  I can use it beyond just watching videos.

Here’s what I watched this week…

Turning Thirty

|~~| Could Watch |~~|

 


I came across this movie while trolling through Youtube and decided to watch it on a whim. A story about three friends but entered around one played by Gul Panag this is a story about the dramas in the life of a woman as she approaches the 30 barrier. The premise of the movie has promise but the delivery is lacking. The movie seemed too much a rip-off of Sex and the City missing the fourth GF. It could have been more real, not in story, that’s quite the stark truth but in acting.

 

Mockingjay Part 1

|~~| Should Watch |~~|

 


Based on the Hunger Games series this is the first part of the last book. One more movie to go to complete the series. Hunger Games is a series I have enjoyed and I must say I have enjoyed the movies too. Like the Harry Potter movies , the Hunger games movies also do justice to the books. If you are someone who doesn’t have the patience for three books, watch the movies, it’s not too bad a compromise. Can’t wait for the last movie.

 

Badlapur

|~~| Should Watch |~~|

 


This is the story of a guy in Pune who’s wife and child get killed in a robbery chase. The robber goes to jail keeping mum about his accomplice while the man is out on a mission to take revenge. Directed by Sriram Raghavan who’s previous EkHasina Thi I had absolutely enjoyed, this one also comes close as he explores human emotions and situations. The story comes full circle at the end leaving behind questions to mull on. Nawazuddin Siddiqui as always delivers, this man is some actor!

 

What movies would you recommend this week for me?
