We watched a horror movie called Uninvited earlier today.
The not-so-terrifying movie is alright but not remarkable.
What is remarkable though is the solid performance of the 20-year-old Australian actress Emily Browning, who plays the role of a young girl released from a mental hospital, some 10 months after the death of her mother’s death.
With a very expressive face, the girl is an absolute delight to behold on the screen.
Apparently, Uninvited is only the second movie in which Emily has the main role.
A short girl (5′ 2″) with just above average looks, the talented actress proves that absence of an extraordinarily beautiful face or height is no bar to being noticed in a movie.
The young lassie has already picked up a host of awards and, if her luck holds, we’ll probably see more of her in the coming years.
Indian actresses like Aishwarya Rai are veterans of several dozen Bollywood movies and yet they deliver mediocre, shoddy performances in movie after movie. Ad nauseum, ad infinitum.
A disgrace of an actress, Aishwarya Rai and most of her Indian peers bring shame to the acting community. Russell Peters was right on the mark about Aishwarya Rai.
Of course, it’s not hard to notice that none of our Bollywood actresses or actors make it outside the borders of India except rarely in itsy bitsy roles.
But that’s no surprise because given their meagre talent these clowns would be laughed off the stage any place else except India.
Only in India, folks. Only in India does such mediocrity flourish in the movie business.
No wonder despite the prodigious quantity of films churned out every year, Bollywood is a joke outside India (except of course with desis). Au contraire, look at the number of Australian actors who have made it big on the international stage – Mel Gibson, Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman, Hugh Jackman, the late Heath Ledger, Naomi Watts, Eric Bana et al.
