They just suck. They’re way too expensive for me. Why should I pay Rs.130 to watch a Hindi movie, or an English movie (they sometimes have the gall to charge more for these)? Rs. 130 could buy me a buffet lunch at a fancy Oriental restaurant in the heart of the city, 2 games of bowling, 8 pirated movies at National Market… Essentially, Rs. 130 is a lot.

Starsky and Hutch / Directed by Todd Philips, Starring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson
Great fun, this flick. Wilson and Stiller have great timing and an unmatched on-screen comic chemistry. Brilliant dialogues, cool action sequences, and marvellous performances from everybody, including Snoop Dogg as Huggy make this a top-notch (or should I say notch one – see movie for details) film.
Rating: 4/5

The Interpreter / Directed by Sydney Pollack, Starring Nicole Kidman, Sean Penn
Nicole Kidman, a Ku-speaking translator for the UN stumbles upon a clue that leads to a well-thought-out conspiracy to wipe out the universally-opposed President of Matobo. Sean Penn, a US Secret Service agent deployed to protect her, begins to uncover the entire masterminded plot that twists and turns, eventually weaving a tale worth telling. Good stuff!
