5 Rajat Kapoor movies you must watch!

rajat-kapoor

Rajat Kapoor does theater, he does movies of different sorts and he for sure is a versatile actor. Often we complain about the shortage of realistic cinema in Bollywood these days. That’s mostly because movies of the aforementioned sort don’t usually get a place in the multiplexes and if they get they run short of audience. Still there are people who want to watch realistic cinema, they value it and they cherish it!

 

I have tried to muster a collection of Rajat Kapoor movies. Out of that collection, here I am listing five movies I think are less watched but deserve attention. I am pretty sure you’ll like these. This list is purely out of my personal experience, so no lies and no canards either!

 

Raat Gayi, Baat Gayi: A movie that is a brilliant satire on the so called high suave society. The protagonist Rajat Kapoor gets so drunk at a party that he doesn’t remember iota about what happened that night. Throughout the movie he is skeptical about things, confused and this confusion leads to interesting events.

 

I’m 24: A movie in essence about online dating. A movie that demonstrates how reality can be different than what we see online! The protagonist dates a girl online and tells us that he is really good looking but in reality it is a different story altogether. A simple yet impressive story and definitely leaves an impact on the audience.

 

Bheja Fry: The story of Bheja fry revolves around a simpleton guy. Rajat Kapoor in this particular movie plays the role of a suave man, apparently a character that really suits his persona. The movie is sure to tickle your funny bone. It is a simple story but with some really strong and impressive performances.

 

Hulla: Another Rajat Kapoor movie that is simple yet extremely relevant. The movie displays the life of a couple living in a gated society in Mumbai. The man gets disturbed by the whistling watchman and scolds him for the same. On the other hand, the secretary of the society insists that the whistling is for the safety of the society. The movie is an extremely interesting one and showcases day to day activities that happen around us.

 

Siddharth: The Prisoner: Well this one is a pure Rajat Kapoor show! He hardly speaks in the movie but his gestures and expressions speak aloud! It is a story of a writer who by fate gets a briefcase full of cash but in the process lost his manuscript. So the crave waves between greed and selflessness. Rajat Kapoor with this brooding looks does absolute justice to the role. In the end, he leaves it all. He leaves it all to start afresh!

 

Well these are just some of the Rajat Kapoor movies mentioned here. He has done umpteen number of movies and keeps experimenting to serve something new and different to the audiences.

Let’s not shun realistic cinema!

Movies

Movies or rather cinema is nothing but an extension of your society. That is about real cinema that is not in the trend these days when unrealistic movies are mushrooming like anything! At time you feel who is to be blamed for this! The audience is definitely to be blamed for promoting or more importantly enduring non-serious cinema with a broad smile on face. An acute problem is that it’s not just the audience’s fault; we have limited (rather no) access to quality cinema! Apparently we are facing oligarchy in Bollywood as a result only few selected big banner movies get promoted or screened at multiplexes. As a result the youth has limited access to realistic cinema.

 

The purpose of cinema is not mere entertainment but also a source of inspiration or information. A few non-serious movies or romantic movies are good but these shouldn’t hinder the other authentic movies to be screened. We have been observing this for long, a good movie comes in and goes out without anyone getting even an iota of idea about it! Serious cinema, centric cinema has the power to impact the society and can lead to positive changes. I am not sure movies like ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ and ‘Befikre’ have the potential to change or impact the society in a positive way! A cardinal reason I am writing this post is that I often come across promotions for movies like the aforementioned but seldom do I see serious movies getting promoted or pushed.

 

The Bollywood has some really talented folks and they continue their good work of making quality and sensible cinema without expecting fiscal returns! Probably this is because they love their job and they take it as their responsibility to not allow abatement of cinema quality. I didn’t see Masaan getting promoted in any of the TV shows; neither did I see Manjhi in the news often. Movies like Sir Kay Kay Menon starring Rahasya, Rajat Kapoor starring ‘Mithya’ didn’t get the deserved attention as well. These are just a few examples the list is a long one.

 

Now let’s try and break the shackles! Please try and support realistic cinema as often as you can. It is a treasure that we need to preserve. Actors like Ranvir Shorey, Rajkummar Rao, Vinay Pathak, Kay Kay Menon, Rajat Kapoor and others keep coming up with extremely interesting and well thought projects. Let us promote sensible cinema, after all it is for us to relish!

Radio has played a huge role in advertising music in India. In villages in particular people still use radios to listen to music and entertain themselves. The radio plays music for different types and in different languages. People heavily hinge upon radio in villages for the entertainment thing. The different type of radio stations play music in different languages and dialects, thus making it very interesting indeed!

Queen Movie | A Simple Story | A Simple Review

Poetic!

 

Bollywood keeps surprising you from time to time. Whenever you start feeling that they are short of ideas, someone comes up with a brilliant one that makes you marvel at the sheer creativity and artistic approach. It is always nice to go for a movie on the weekend, just to refresh and enjoy a little. The problem is that we don’t have many options these days as far as the Bollywood movies are concerned. As, apparently all of the Bollywood movies give you the same impression these days. That’s why, it is always good when you get a chance to watch a Bollywood flick that justifies the talent that our Bollywood has!

Even I saw ‘Queen‘ on a lighter note. It was all about endless laughter and ‘fun and frolic’! When I came back to my place late in the night after watching the movie, I couldn’t help thinking about the story and the transformation that the protagonist under went. Life really goes a complete circle isn’t it! I know it’s like a cliche thing but whatever you do comes back to you sooner or later! I had a lot of things in mind after watching the movie ‘Queen‘ but let me share with you a few of the things that I learnt from the movie.
