I just don't know why our film makers keep cheating on us? Can't they see defects in their own product? Being a QA personnel from manufacturing industry, I assure that each product passing from us, shall be perfect. And I have enough knowledge about my product. So, all experienced Sanjay Dutt, Akshay Kumar & the producers couldn't find that their movie is not engaging at all??? Even though it is only nearly two hours long, it not at any point -was as engaging as a Thriller should be. And the publicity guys were shouting 'Unleash the Mystery' Blah Blah Blah......my foot. There is NO THING AS A MYSTERY. I repeat, NOTHING. It just comes and goes. No Adrenalin rush, no excitement. Nothing. Even LUCK was better for some 'meaningful' action. Here its just an ensemble of perfectly choreographed but misplaced action sequences. With all twists we know before they happen.
I am not telling that Everything is bad in it. NO. It is revolutionary in terms of Technical Expertise. Ocean has never been so vivacious blue. Sky was never so sharp. Nights were never so real. Dolphins' were never heard in Hindi movie. Never have we seen underwater action besides heroines in swimming pool. Bikinis were never so so sexy. Yes, BLUE owes its Technical Crew completely. and [the reason I went in for] Rahman's score. Thumping Background score which you can feel around your seats. Fantastic songs - with one downer. Bad Picturization of my most fav-Fiqrana. Rahman has used 'Bhoola Tujhe' theme in various portions of the movie. In different versions, which is excellent.
Acting. ha ha. I think Sanju baba has forgotten this word. He was sleepwalking. Or maybe he was trying hard to 'be in character'. of a humble guy with guilt in heart. Don't know. But why is he showing his 'getting bigger' tummy?? Zayed is average. Lara is a show piece. Nothing much for her. [after all, its all 'male' movie]. But she definitely sizzles in bikinis. She's extremely comfortable with her sexuality and she's perfect visual delight. Akshay Kumar is busy showing off his tatoo, name of his son-painted on his back. Akki repeats himself once again. Read-boring. Its just 'chiggy wiggy' which suited him perfectly. [and oh, Kylie...Muahh] Only relief as an 'actor' is Rahul Dev. After Aa Dekhen Zara, he once again rocks the screen with power performance.
Sigh....First Akki ruined new year with CC2C, then KI, now he has ruined Diwali....No more Akki movies please. No. No. He was better in 8x10. No more Akki movies for me now...unless if its extremely good, then only I will watch it. Dear Akki, don't take your initials too seriously. 'You Are Not AK' Read scripts instead of Cheques.
If you are interested, enthu about Technical expertise of movies, Go and watch Blue. If you want to watch a good entertaining 'movie'; forget it!!
My Rating : 2 / 5 [Just for Technical crew+music]
My Fav Moments : The Underwater sequences [but not the revelation of Treasure chest]
Rewatch : What??!!
