Film: Ta Ra Rum Pum Click for more info

Typical Bollywood rags-to-riches-to-rags-back-to-riches fare. There isn't much more to Ta Ra Rum Pum than that, and although I didn't leave the cinema full of regret, I don't think I'll be remembering much of the film after today.

Acting was alright, not that anyone stood out in particular. The plot was nothing special either; the racing itself played a small part of the film - it was a context and nothing more - and we never really felt the need to get involved with any of the characters. Music was below par (I won't be adding any of the OST to my tracklist anyway).

Highlights included a spectacularly stunning Rani Mukherji, especially during the first half of the film, although I did wonder at one point exactly how short her skirt was heading. Oh and that music video wasn't that bad either.

But still, this film trod a fine like between being passable and truly sucking and although I list some of the flaws above I think that, overall, it makes the former. Still, what that does mean is that it's not something I could urge you all to rush out to see, whether on the big screen or DVD.
