Chandni Chowk to Migraine

Nothing original... absolutely nothing that has never been seen before... but I did go to watch this movie with a completely open mind despite it getting bad reviews... and probably my expectations from the film were so low that I ended up thinking this movie wasnt so bad after all...

I personally dont think Akshay Kumar deserves so much flak from the industry (media et all)... Just was another bad film to come out... 90% of our movies in the past 90 years have been bad so why pick on one actor?
I dont think much of him as an actor but then again I think most of our leading stars are really bad actors however I thought he got too much negative publicity for this. I dont know why some 'has never beens' like Shekhar Suman comment on him in the press... one can't even remember Suman's trashy movies...

Have you seen some of Akshay's forgotten classics? Believe me CC2C is Oscar worthy in front of Akshay's other movies like Aflatoon, Barood, International Khiladi, Sapoot, Suhaag, Sainik, Kyada Kanoon, Mr. Bond and dozens more whose names I can't remember...

The main problem with CC2C is that the audience has had an abundance of average taken for granted comedies... that is exactly where this movie fails... the screenplay is just filled with non-sense...

The action sequences were so lame... Apart from the originals, no one could pay tribute to Hong Kong cinema like Quentin Tarantino did in his Kill Bills. Nikhil Advani is just an average film-maker who is lucky to have producers and stars backing him... that is what I thought when I saw Salaam-E-Ishq (lets not talk about Kal Ho Na Ho). This just solidifies my thoughts. He had an amazing budget,a big star cast, something even veteran directors these days strive for yet the dude screwed it up big time... however, unlike last time he decided to keep this film's duration under three hours.

After the 18 reels, the only salvation I got was from my Barclay's credit card which offered me a 25% discount when I purchased my tickets. People say Hindi cinema is crap and being part of the industry I would like to think otherwise but I'm sorry to say that I choose to be ignorant!!

Spoiler: Hated the way Mithun died!! Was just so stupid... preferred him dying in Kranti Khetra!! Yaiiiiiiiiii!!
