Na Munni Na Sheila..2010 Ki Item Girl Hai..

A jhatka matka hello, frEek fellows!!

While 2010 wasn't a happy year for Bollywood, what with biggies such as Kites and Guzaarish flopping, it certainly marked the return of that staple known as the ITEM NUMBER!

With the release of Salman Khan's curry masala "Dabangg" came the rustic chart topper "Munni Badnaam" giving us a the gyrating dewar-saali duo of Malaika Arora and Salman Khan, added for extra measure were lookalikes of Saif Ali Khan and Amitabh Bacchhan.

Soon after, were we treated to the Beyoncesque gyrations of a barely clad Katrina Kaif, who flaunted the results of her low carbohydrate diet for all and sundry to see; in Tees Maar Khan's " Sheila Ki Jawani" .

While the promos itself praised Sheila as the sexiest item song ever, it seemed to have been inspired from sources as wide as Beyonce to Kimi Katkar from "Jhumma Chumma".

It is however the frEek's opinion that the item girl of 2010, was not a munni or a sheila, but that dark damsel from videshi shores who wowed us with her spontaneous dance skills, all when her husband wowed India with his charm, that's right folks, I am talking about none other than Michelle Obama!!

So there you have it folks...2010 main Munni badnaam hui, aur Sheila jawaan, but it was Michelle that took our votes!!

Stay frEEked!!

TRON: LEGACY unfulfilled

A Sci-fi hello, frEek fellows,

This week saw the release of Disney's much anticipated sequel to its 1984 TRON. Coming nearly thirty years after its path-breaking predecessor; TRON: LEGACY promises the next step in Graphic Imaging.. the future of cinema after Avatar's path breaking effects, does it deliver, well freeking read on...

What it is? : Tron Legacy tells the tale of Kevin Flynn (Garett Hedlund) who is the son of TRON's protagonist Sam Flynn ( Jeff Bridges), Kevin a maverick hacker decides to investigate his father Sam's disappearance and ends up following him into the digitized universe known as TRON. Neon suits, lightcycles and techno music follow!!

Glow Baby Glow!!!

What Works
: TRON: LEGACY, promised the next level in cinematic effects, and it manages to live upto that promise in part. The Lightcycle battles are truly amazing experience to watch on screen. Tron: Legacy also features Jeff Bridges in two roles, and he tries valiantly, to succeed in both while succeeding. Tron: Legacy also enjoys the collective presence of beauties such as Olivia Wilde, Beau Garett and YaYa Dacosta and Serinda Swan..or better explained in the below picture!!!

go buy your!!!

What doesn't: TRON, released in 1984 had all the hallmarks of a typical Walt Disney movie; namely a good looking hero who is capable of extreme physical action and at the same time can hack into the most complex of computer systems in a matter of seconds. An over the top bad guy, a sympathetic, ultra-hot yet tough female lead and of course the uber-cool lightcycle. Where TRON-LEGACY majorly falters is that in upgrading the cinematic effects, it neglects to upgrade the story line and ends up in a laughable plot with some laugahble lines. Jeff Bridges in his two roles as the genius scientist Sam flynn, is left mouthing 70s lingo such as "cool" "radical" and wait for this.."knock on the!" to distinguish himself from his evil clone CLU (a CGI generated younger Jeff Bridges).

The Verdict: TRON: Legacy, was hailed as the next Avatar, and instead it ends up resulting in being a half-hearted mish mash of its predecessor. A lesson that fancy-packaging cannot disguise an empty doesn't that sound like something Sam Flynn would say!!

A disappointing two FreEkies!!

A Superheroic hello freEk fellows.

The trailer for the latest in Marvel Comic's onslaught of superhero films : THOR, just hit the net, following worthy predecessors such as IRON MAN, HULK; THOR is the tale of THOR (Chris Middlesworth), who is banished to Earth as punishment by his father ODIN (Anthony Hopkins). Will this prove to be a worthy contender in the previous superhero Marvel releases, only time will tell

Stay frEeked!!!


A weekend hello, frEeK fellows,

Apologies for having logged out for so long, this episode of Film freEk brings to you the trailer for the final part in Michael Bay's TRANSFORMER's trilogy, called : TRANSFORMERS - THE DARK OF THE MOON.

with the second part coming in for a lot of criticism regarding its CGI overkill and the lack of a coherent plotline, BAY appears to have taken a Spielbergish approach and attempted a suspenseful feel to the movie, although that will vanish within the first 15 minutes of the movie, to be filled in with the usual images of giant robots, and Shia Laboeuf running aroung screaming "nonononononono!!!"

Oh well, what's the use, I know you'll be there!!

stay frEeked!!
