I saw Halla Bol this weekend and of course I don’t want to write a review, but do want to point out what I liked:

  • The brooding, angry, simmering, seething Ajay Devgan. I couldn’t get enough!
  • Pankaj Kapoor‘s character Siddhu. (Dosto, I didn’t know he was Shahid Kapoor‘s dad!)
  • Darshan Jariwala’s character Gaekwad
  • Ajay’s giant watch
  • Giving a kidney to pay for a good lawyer
  • Many angry mobs, so much to protest, and so often!
  • Pool party den of sin scene, ala playboy mansion. Many goris around the pool representing decadence. Yaaro, it gives me hope that I could be an extra.
  • Sikhs come out looking very cool throughout & ultra Sikh sword fight was great!
  • Ajay’s (Sameer) room of awards and its destruction
  • The The Big Lebowski moment
  • Jackie Shroff’s special appearance, so commanding!
  • Sridevi’s special appearance. She was so tentative. Come on Sridevi! Own it!
  • Glimpses of Rishi Kapoor, Shilpa and Abhishek. Was Abhishek there in the awards show section, or did I imagine it?

starring: Ajay Devgan, Vidya Balan, Pankaj Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Ishteyak, Sridevi, Boney Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Ruby Bhatia, Pahlaj Nihalani, Neeraj Vora, Tusshar Kapoor, Ranjit Kapoor, Mukesh Tiwari, Lekh Tandon, and Sayali Bhagat.

The movie goers say some of the following: “Very good movie.” “Pankaj Kapoor, was too good.” “Good.” “It was a good movie.” “Five star movie.” “Trust me it’s awesome!” But I don’t hear my favorite thing I so often hear them say in India: “Superb!”
