Last Friday 2 movies got released. One typical masala filled Bollywood movie EMI and the other much awaited bond movie Quantum of Solace.
EMI (Easy Monthly Instalments) deals with the ‘loan culture’. Producer Suniel Shetty has taken up a catchy subject at the time when we are facing such downfall in markets. Debutant director Saurabh Kabra picks up incidents from real life and depicts the pros and cons of availing loans. In this film, four different stories run parallel, plus there’s a Bhai, who not only recovers outstanding dues from defaulters, but also sorts out their personal lives.
Sattarbhai (Sanjay Dutt), owner of the leading recovery agency Good Luck Recovery Agency, is supposed to recover the money from people who would have taken loans and not paid their EMI’s but he ends up being the saviour and the solution for all those caught in the debt trap.
4 couples invloved in this trap are Anil-Shilpa (Aashish Chowdhary-Neha Uberoi), Chandrakant-Arjun (Kulbhushan Kharbanda), Ryan-Prerna (Arjun Rampal-Malaika Arora Khan) and Prerna – ? (Urmila Matondkar – ?) searching for the couple name for urmila? Its of course our Sanju BABA!!
On the other hand, QoS, Daniel Craig’s second BOND film has the concept of rage. When we left the agent at the end of Casino Royale, the great man was hurting. His love, Vesper Lynd, had betrayed him, apparently, and his heart was broken. Now he’s out for revenge and Bond has gone over the edge -and over the top.
His mission is to crack a secret society of a political baddies, called Quantum; their key player, Dominic Greene, is played by French character actor Mathieu Amalric. Greene is a super-rich businessman out to buy vast swathes of real estate, so he can control the water supply of an entire continent. Bond must take him down. But what Bond really wants is revenge on this man who stole his love.
Speaking about Bond girls, they get better each time. Olga Kurylenko’s stunning, hard-as-nails beauty, Camille, has her own private vendetta that she wants to bring to a bloody conclusion, with or without Bond’s help. And Gemma Arterton’s effortlessly foxy Agent Field appeals to the better side of the wounded anti-romantic.
Time will decide the fate of both the movies. Critics do not have much acclaim for either of the movie. But the real critic always remain the public. So guys, what will be your pick?
