Billu Barber

February 20, 2009

billu-barber-title1Last night, just randomly I watched this movie titled Billu Barber. I don’t wait for movies now. I don’t plan to buy them or try to be hooked to the cable in order to catch my favorite movie. I watch movies when and if I get time and desire.

I had seen the songs from that movie, all of them starring Shahrukh Khan with different heroines. The promos didn’t excite me much. So I watched this movie without any expectation. It turned out to be really nice and entertaining. The village where the movie has been shot is scenic. The acting was fine and so was the story. I could very well understand Billu’s hesitation to meet the super star Sahir Khan when the film unit comes to shoot in his village. The dialogues in the end where Billu says to Sahir that you paced in life and touched the heights of success while I remained the same old village man were wonderful and totally natural.

Sometimes simple stories appeal so much as compare to the glitter and glam that’s mandatory part of the commercial cinema.

Khudaya Khair: That’s my most favorite song. It has amazing lyrics:

Woh surmay ki tarah meri

Aankhon main hi rehti hai

Subah ke khawab se udai hai

Palkon ke neechay chupai hai

Mano na mano tum

Soote soote khawabon main bhi khawab dekhati hai

    I saw the film and was highly dissapointed. Glad you enjoyed it though =] i only liked 2 scenes:
    when the guest house owner recites his lines for the film [as a cop] and when sahir does his speech in the end of the film
    i reccomend you watch [when u feel desire it lol] slumdog millionaire, its an amazing film.

    I did – and its very different! Irfan Khan played a good role. πŸ™‚

    I wrote a post on the dukh of Priyanka chopra hanging on to Shahrukh khan – πŸ˜›

    For once I was very critical of something in my life. πŸ™‚

    its so so as per SRK standard… the speech scene is very good though… perhaps sab kuch ussi k liye ho raha tha…

    Irfan Khan is best, Lara dutta good… she sounded cool telling gaon vaaliyan about devar ji… : )
