Dhoom 2 (2006) – Hindi Movie

Brazil is pretty much in the news these days!

We now give you Dhoom 2, the first Bollywood movie to be filmed in Brazil. 

Cast:
Hrithik Roshan ….  Aryan Singh/Mr A.
Aishwarya Rai ….  Sunehiri
Abhishek Bachchan ….  Jai Dixit
Uday Chopra ….  Ali Akbar Fateh Khan
Bipasha Basu ….  ACP Shonali Bose
Rimi Sen ….  Sweety Dixit

ACP Jai Dixit and his best friend Ali takes on an international thief known only as Mr. A. Will they be able to catch him? Ali’s (Uday Chopra) dream of becoming a police officer has come true. He is now ACP Jai Dixit’s (Abhishek Bachchan) ‘right hand man’. Together, they are trying to keep a tight leash on the crime in India. Little do they know what they are going to be up against. Enter Aryan – Mr. A (Hrithik Roshan) – A hi-tech international thief. After pulling off a series of impossible heists all over the world, his next target is Mumbai, India. The case is given to ACP Jai and Ali. Helping them put the pieces of the puzzle together is ACP Shonali Bose (Bipasha Basu), Jai’s college mate, now a police officer in her own right. For the last two years Shonali has been tracking these amazing thefts and is now an expert on this thief, who no one has seen. Once in Mumbai, Mr. A finds his match in Sunehri (Aishwarya Rai), a petty yet clever thief. She makes him an offer he finds very hard to refuse. A partnership! Aryan accepts. And so the game begins – a game of cat and mouse – a game of good v/s bad. The “COPS” – Jai, Shonali and Ali; and they are after Aryan and Sunehri – “The ROBBERS”. From the desert of Namibia to the backwaters of Goa, the mean streets of Mumbai and the ancient forts of Rajasthan, and finally to “Wild n Exotic” Rio, Brazil. Does ACP Jai Dixit manage to nab Mr. A? Or does Mr. A prove to be too much for him?

Goofs:

Continuity: While watching the movie “Cars” in a theatre Aryan, Jai and Sunehri are shown to be talking for barely 5 minutes. But the scenes of the movie which are shown in the middle of their conversations are very far apart. This is not possible because they have been talking for barely 5 minutes.

Errors in geography: In the chase sequence towards the movie’s end, while in Brazil, Aryan and Sunehri are shown driving their bike on the left side of the road along with the other traffic, when vehicles drive on the right side of the road in Brazil. This is because the chase scene was in fact filmed in Durban, South Africa.

Watch the movie now!

Baraka (1992)

A movie with no conventional plot: merely a collection of expertly photographed scenes. Subject matter has a highly environmental theme. Without words, cameras show us the world, with an emphasis not on “where,” but on “what’s there.” It begins with morning, natural landscapes and people at prayer: volcanoes, water falls, veldts, and forests; several hundred monks do a monkey chant. Indigenous peoples apply body paint; whole villages dance. The film moves to destruction of nature via logging, blasting, and strip mining. Images of poverty, rapid urban life, and factories give way to war, concentration camps, and mass graves. Ancient ruins come into view, and then a sacred river where pilgrims bathe and funeral pyres burn. Prayer and nature return. A monk rings a huge bell; stars wheel across the sky.

Running Time: 1 hr 36 min 30 sec

Fahrenheit 9/11

One of the most controversial and provocative films of the year (2006), Fahrenheit 9/11 is Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore’s searing examination of the Bush administration’s actions in the wake of the tragic events of 9/11. With his characteristic humor and dogged commitment to uncovering the facts, Moore considers the presidency of George W. Bush and where it has led us. He looks at how – and why – Bush and his inner circle avoided pursuing the Saudi connection to 9/11, despite the fact that 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudis and Saudi money had funded Al Qaeda. Fahrenheit 9/11 shows us a nation kept in constant fear by FBI alerts and lulled into accepting a piece of legislation, the USA Patriot Act, that infringes on basic civil rights. It is in this atmosphere of confusion, suspicion and dread that the Bush Administration makes its headlong rush towards war in Iraq – and Fahrenheit 9/11 takes us inside that war to tell the stories we haven’t heard, illustrating the awful human cost to U.S. soldiers and their families.

Naruto Movie Plot

Set in the Snow country, this movie looks to be a stand-alone adventure that will feature no or little relevance to the main Naruto plotline in the manga or anime. The story will follow the plight of the leader of the Snow Country, his young daughter and his younger brother. Originally, the ruler of this small, ice covered country was a bespectacled man named Kazehana Sousetsu, who had helped keep the country peaceful and had ambitions to let his daughter rule the country when he had retired.
