Khosla ka Ghosla – 4 stars?? WHY?

Posted: October 8, 2006 in Uncategorized

I am going to trust movie reviews lesser and lesser.

They gave 4 stars and a very flattering review to Khosla Ka Ghosla.
And I went and saw it. And came out wondering if, with the stakes that there are in the film industry now, are all reviews “purchased”??

How can anyone give 4 stars to this dumb ass movie?

Its an extremely ordinary effort, perhaps deserving a slot on DD’s movie channel, for budding film makers, more out of encouraging them, and not for any serious commercial opportunity.

But with numbers panning out the way they are, a good run for a week, and money is recovered, any kind on nonsense comes out, and is getting purchased and released as well. And to get that first week push, they are able to get the reviews manipulated.

Damn!

    I was surprised with all the hoopla surrounding this movie. I really thought it was coming from the previews and ‘behind the scenes’ stuff they bombard you with nowadays.

    I am the last one to read and follow reviews. I totally go by the previews in other movies and on TV. I have been on target 90+% of the time.

    Khosla was certainly not a movie I would have watched myself. I would have ended up watching because of the people around me wanting to watch it. Its good that you confirmed my hunch. Another 2.5 hours of my life saved 😉

    Even I don’t really go by the stars per se. I do read the story idea and come to a conclusion if it interests me or not. And I am usually right on my selections!

    This time, I got carried away with the hoopla, and with Boman and Anupam Kher’s names. Also had not seen a film in a while and was itching to see a good one. Did not turn out that way!
