'Phir Milenge' the movie

Hi friends,

My Amarnath tour diary is getting ready. I am planning to include some photographs also with the article. It will be here in this website shortly, I hope!

We saw a movie yesterday. 'Phir milenge', a movie directed by Revathy. I had seen her one more movie, 'Mitr, my friend' which was quite good. This movie is entirely different. The first half of the movie looks just ordinary. The heroine is a creative director who is appreciated well for her job, but then the heroine comes to know that she is infected with the HIV virus. She is thrown out of her job, when her boss comes to know about this. Everyone hesitates to even shake her hand afterwards. The role is played by Shilpa Shetty and I have never expected her to act so well. She is the best actor in this movie. When the heroine loses her job because of the HIV, she goes to court. She is given the cold shoulder by all the lawyers she meets. Then she comes across Abhishek Bachchan, a young lawyer, who hesitates initially, but then takes the case. Nasser, who is a natural actor, plays his role as his professor very well. I have seen the English movie 'Philadelphia'. As soon as the heroine loses her job and goes to court, we start comparing the two movies. But Hollywood movies are different and they are appreciated by the whole world and the producers get back all the money they have invested. Once we remember this aspect, we start appreciating Revathy for having the guts to take this subject for an Indian movie.

Salman was the only wrong choice for acting as an HIV infected patient! He has a sad face naturally (!), but he is too healthy for this type of role. So the end part is a bit boring. We want the movie to be over fast. Abhishek Bachchan seems to be a good actor too! He is gifted with his father's voice and it suits very well for the lawyer's role! Our mood is lifted whenever he comes in the scene. We can notice that Revathy wants the movie to be viewed by an ordinary person also. We are educated softly about the disease and taught that it is important for all of us to treat the patients with some conscience. Even my husband, who is a comedy buff, appreciated this movie!

The 4 p.m. show was full house for this movie! Congratulations and thanks to Revathy, for giving us a good meaningful movie!
