Another One Bites The Dust....!
7 December 2007 | by michael_metalSee all my reviews

I and my friend Pratibha went to watch the first day first show of the much advertised movie wondering what surprise the 10-in-1 package would have in store for us. Yes...contrary to what you may expect, its 10 short films-the title's a dead giveaway! The six vidz worth watching are Matrimony, Lovedale, Gubbare (Balloons), Puranmashi (Full Moon), Zahir and Rice Plate...its a veritable mix with humor thrown in...the directors have endeavored to impress the audience with a "snap effect" - the last minute startling or unexpected twist to each of the movies. They have succeeded to some extent but failed in the entirety.

Three movies, viz. Zahir, Rice Plate and Strangers in the Night try to convey a social message. Lovedale is pleasant whereas Sex on the Beach leans towards spookiness. Sanjay Dutt starrer Rise and Fall is rather ill conceived...they could have done with lesser rainfall to hide the gory scenes! Gubbare, Pooranmashi and Matrimony portray love and debauchery marvelously. Zahir amuses.

The much advertised title song plays out during the closing credits.

Verdict - A One Time Watch!
