Film: Shaadi No 1 Click for more info

There are three types of Bollywood movies for me. First, the unmissable classic that contains all the magic that Bolly has to offer - a pretty cast, a decent script, good songs and emotion-wrenching plot. Second, you have the Salman Khan films which should all be sent to hell. Finally you have everything else.

Shaadi No 1 doesn't star Salman, but neither is it a classic. A good example of what is wrong with Bollywood, Shaadi is little style and even less substance. Bad songs, a ludicrous story, and... well just nothing interesting to note makes this yet another empty Bolly release. The one saving grace is the eye candy on offer (Esha Deol, Soha Ali Khan, Ayesha Takia, Riya Sen, Aarti Chhabria, with Ali Khan looking especially better than she usually does) but even that got boring after a while.

It's a shame, since it demonstrates that there really is a gulf between the good and bad in the world of Bollywood. In my opinion the market would be a lot more accessible if there was more in the middle. But hey; at least I didn't have to pay to watch today.

  4. ..anything that ends with ''No.1'' is going to be crap, be it with Govinda or no Govinda. Surely the title was a big give away!

    And amazingly the same's true for Hollywood, the English film industry and, I think it's safe to say, probably just about every other film industry.

  9. Don't you people get it??

    The X No. 1's are always crap. They have their own league.

    So Shak there are four types of Bollywood Film - the classic, second the Salman Khan films, then you have the 'X' No. 1 films (i.e. Coolie No. 1, Jodi No. 1, etc) and then everything else.
