Been a long time, yea? I used to watch a movie every night, but since I moved into my parents house, I now have a television, so I watch TV shows instead of downloading them and don't watch as many movies. I need to though! I miss them!
Anyway, went to the theatre today to go see Billu Barber, I won't say too much about it, because it is still fairly new and I don't want to ruin it for anyone.
Well, to say it quickly, fantastic movie! I really loved it!
I hadn't read a single thing about the movie, so I didn't know what to expect. SRK was in it far less than I had thought he would be, but why wouldn't you capitalize on his name if you could? At least it was more than just an item number. Also, the 3 actresses, Deepika, Priyanka and Kareena were only item numbers in some of the songs, which I would have known had I wiki'd it, lol. I wasn't disappointed though, my mom was disappointed in the first half because Shahrukh wasn't in it much, but I thought the movie itself was still fantastic, even with him only making a few appearances. He plays a movie star, which I can't imagine was a hard acting job for him, even his character seemed fairly true to life, but it was good seeing it, I won't complain. I thought he did a good job. And the end was so totally worth it.
Okay, about the rest of the movie. I thought the story was fantastic. I grew attached to Billu and really felt for him while everything was going on, he was great, I haven't seen Irrfan Khan in anything, but he did great. And I don't think I've seen Lara Dutta in an actual role either, but she was gorgeous (played Billu's wife). The story was great, the scenery was great, the ending was really sweet and all in all, a great movie. The songs were good, but forgettable since they didn't have anything to do with the movie, but they were fun to watch on their own.
I recommend it. Much more the Rab ne Bana Di Jodi, imo. Ha, and it was so funny, they even called him 'King Khan' in the movie. Must have been such an easy role!
