The Dirty Picture - movie review
The story of The Dirty Picture is set against the colorful and entertaining backdrop of the fierce male-dominated South-Indian film industry of the 80s. This film chronicles the meteoric rise and steep fall of the erstwhile screen sensation. A story loosely based on the life of the South’s sex-siren of the eighties – Silk Smitha. The Dirty Picture - movie review... Reshma (Vidya Balan) runs away from her house to get role in the films, wearing revealing clothes. She lands up as an ‘extra’ with dancing in the background. Her bold dancing titillates the male audience in the cinema hall. This brave, daring and provocative girl had a meteoric rise in the South film industry. Reshma is now a junior artist who became the most sought after female protagonist of the early 80s. A friendly director suggests her to take up a stage name “Silk”. She is lucky again and gets a break a ....

Bhool Bhulaiya movie review
Bhool Bhulaiyaa is a hindi remake of a Malayalam super hit film - Manichitrathazhu, which has a better ending than the other Priyadarshan movies like Dhol, etc... Its a slapstick murder mystery which thankfully has buffoonery restricted only to the first half of the movie and that's tolerable. The second half really scares the audience, which apart from frightening, is also amusing and exciting. The movie begins with its usual slapstick comedy rendered by Paresh Rawal, Rajpal Yadav, Asrani and the gang - without Akshay Kumar. It is acceptable since the story moves on alongwith the regular giggling moments. Bhool Bhulaiya has songs, comedy, suspense and spirits, and some portions are not for the faint hearted. The hit songs are Hare Krishna Hare Rama - which could have been included somewhere around Akshay Kumar's entry which would be more excitable. The other number on Shiny Ahuja and ....

They flirt, dine and have one night affairs with a number of women without thinking of how much hurt they might cause to them. Heyy Babyy review continues..
