In the autumn years of our life, if we’ve learnt anything at all it’s to ignore all advice – well meaning or otherwise – from these vexing bipeds a.k.a humans.
But schmucks that we are, occasionally we stumble and make the egregious blunder of listening to our SI blog readers and what do we get – abominable recommendations like Happy Days and Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar.
* Happy Days (Telugu): This morning we watched this unwatchable junk.
Ah, the imprecations we hurled at SI blog readers Elnino Aurora and Ganesh Kumar as we sat through this mind-altering, unendurable agony.
Sekhar Kammula (story, screenplay, dialogs and direction) is the (mis)architect of this movie, which follows a bunch of engineering students right from their entry into college through graduation four years later.
Folks, we couldn’t find one interesting moment, one redeeming element in this shit as we sat through the students’ ragging, studies, college fights, romance et al.
Like the students’ antics, the movie itself was sophomoric. All of it.
Oh well, we kinda liked Sonia who played Shravanthi (our Tyson’s ‘senior’ dream-girl) and Nikhil Siddharth (the guy plays the MLA’s son Rajesh).
Far too many songs.
And to think that Sekhar Kammula is hailed as a ‘revolutionary director’ in Tollywood.
And to think that this mediocre shit turned out to be a big hit is a testament to the vibrant market for trash in India.
And to think that we sat through this crap.
By the way, our Netflix DVD came with English subtitles.
* Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar (Hindi) – Among the many crappy Aamir Khan movies we’ve sat through, surely this one has got to be the worst.
Whatever SI blog reader Guruprasad smokes, eats and drinks, we don’t know and we most certainly don’t want to know. But surely it can’t be what sane folk smoke, eat and drink.
A horrendously asinine movie, Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar centers around a stupid bike race and the love lives of a bunch of school students including Sanju (Aamir Khan).
Yes, kids. You read right. The love-lives of school students.
As if all that were not bad enough, our hero studies in the Model School. No less.
What a shame – Aamir Khan used to feature in idiotic movies then (1992)…he features in idiotic movies now (2009).
Folks, not in all the galaxies in the universe can you find an actress as bad as Pooja Bedi.
Ayesha Jhulka, the ‘Model School’ girl in love with Aamir, was alright.
This junk too is available at Netflix.
