3 movie weekend

Gangster:
More or less a love story unlike what the movie’s title suggests. Starring Shiney Ahuja, Kangna and Emraan Hashmi. Never seen any Hashmi movies since Murder, but the reviews plus Shiney’s presence made me watch this one..and I was not too disappointed. The first half is plain boring as Emraan and Kangna fall in love, make love and all kind of stuff. The second half is where Shiney makes a proper entry and the movie becomes interesting from that point, with plenty of unexpected twists to keep us interested. Shiney does not get a major role, but looks very much the gangster part, and changes drastically towards the end into a character u really sympathise with. The music is awesome with 4 of the 5 making an impact. “Bheegi Bheegi” is what you would call a ‘rock ballad’ and totally rocks! “Lamha Lamha” reminds me of old Abhijeet songs from Josh and Yes Boss. “Tu hi meri shab hai” is awesome in the first few hearings but becomes boring after that. “Ya Ali” is my favourite! Debutant singer Zubeen is brilliant in this one. Overall, a movie u should watch once, might be a bit tiring for a second watch.
3.5/5

36 China Town:
Titles - 5 mins Upen and Isha intro – Upen-Isha song – 5 more mins – Shahid-Tanushree song – 10 more mins – Shahid-Kareena song – Other characters introduced – some comedy – murder - interval – Akshaye Khanna joins the party – more songs – climax – end titles – another song
None of the characters play a full fledged role, even Kareena Kapoor. Priyanka Chopra comes in a blink-and-miss appearance. Upen Patel makes a below average debut. A couple of songs are good, Himesh croons a couple yet again. A movie to avoid even if u r an Abbas-Mustan fan.
2/5

Ice Age 2: The Meltdown:
Had enjoyed Ice Age. IA2 is not as enjoyable but still makes the cut as a fun anime movie. Scrat, the star of the first part, gets a longer role here and is undoubtedly the star of this movie too as the audience roar, wenever Scrat came on screen, implied!
3.5/5
