Vishal Bharadwaj is actually one of my heros (not just because we share the same first name). I have to say, Ishqiya was legendary! Nasseruddin Shah is one of the best actors I've ever had the honour of seeing on stage (and on cinema of course). I've not seen Maqbool yet?I do like Halla Bol. Black was a great film. It's just too heartrending to watch again, but I adore it. I love Omkara and Ishqiya too. I am in the Vishal Bhardwaj fan club! Maqbool just blew me away! Tabu is a Goddess. Irfan is just out of the world. Such a talented sexy man! GaWD.
omfg Vishal, you have to watch Maqbool and report to me within 2 weeks :laughing:
Seriously, PLEASE, Maqbool dekho! You will not be disappointed. It's among THE best Indian movies ever. It's dark, slimy, sinful, lusty, sad and so very human. I've done theatre, and I'd have loved to play Tabu's role in that movie. I couldn't stop thinking about how I would've interpreted it. I have played Lady Macbeth in an English play, but an Indian enactment would be a dream come true.
Naseer sahab is Art. I've been in awe of him for as long as I can remember. I also quite like Om Puri.
p.s. Vidya is a cutie. I adore her.
p.p.s. Maybe I should audition for a movie or two while I am here. Btw, no jokes, I met a drunk Subash Ghai at a party in Delhi a few years back. He is a school friend's relative. He walked up to me and said "Would you like to work in my movie?...translated the statement for me as though I didn't speak any angrezi..'meri picture main kam karogi'". I was surprised. I was like "Ji nahi. Abhi aesa koi iraada nahi hae, lekin aapka bahot bahot shukriya". Then, he made some comments about my "zubaan" being very graceful and handed me his card. I still have it
OMG FARHAN AKHTAR!!!! How could I forget him as well?!? Yeah I love him! I completely agree, those were all great movies, plus Rock On!! had some of the best songs ever without the over-the-top Bollywood dance numbers (generally those dance songs aren't my favourite, but there are exceptions). Now I'm going to go listen to some Rock On!! songsI'm a big fan of Farhan Akhtar though; Luck By Chance, Karthik Calling Karthik and Rock On!! were all fantastic IMO.
