Sangdil Sanam - Oh Boy!

There is trash and then there is trash. There are films that are unwatchable like Meri Aan and movies like Suryavanshi which play in a league of their own. Now Sangdil Sanam is stumbling along the thin borderline that separates those two.









But judge for yourself:
Upright bank manager is framed terribly by his friend. Instead of a happy life with his wife, 14 jear old son and 14 year old daughter-in-law (!!!) the girls father robbs the bank, manipulates the brakes on daddies car and so daddy is believed dead by his wife and son, which are advised to flee the angry mob to the most remote village they can find by "friend" who in turn takes his daughter and vanishes to London. Daddy on the other hand miraculously survives, is charged with robbery and is sentenced for life in prison (he is released after 10 years).
And so far the credits don´t even have finished. Ten years later the treacherous friend and beti return to India and the boy (Salman) is sent out by his mom (Reema Lagoo) to fetch the daughter in law. Lekin ek problem hai. She (Manisha Koirala) is now a spoilt fury despising poor people and whipping away every guy who does not have lakhs on the bank.









A lot of songs and masti scenes (and I mean a LOT) boy has had it, kidnappes the shrew and brings her home where at first she humiliates everybody but then sees the err in her ways and becomes the perfect bahu and wife. Only to be kidnapped right back again by the groom that her dad (the evil friend as we remember) choose for her (not knowing that he is in fact a fraud with the intention to ruin the evil friend and sell his daughter into prostitution)









Oh there are a lot more twists and turns and sidestories but they have to be seen to be believed, so lets just say there is a huge fight in the end and all´s well that ends well.
If you want to watch a movie you can shout at, laugh at and cringe at really gory fight scenes then you should consider this one. I had a ball watching it.

This sounds like the kind of movie I would enjoy with somebody, so that we could hoot and holler together. So next time I am in Vienna....

Yup, I think it would have been even more hilarious watching it in a group.

So can´t you tell your parents you really miss going on holidays with them and wouldn´t it be a great idea if they took you on their visit to vienna...

Yay, babasko is back with a vengeance! 3 new posts!

What is that weird jacket thing Manisha is wearing in the second picture? Is it really leather with a whole lot of studs or does it just look like that? o_O

babasko said...

i really might be leather and it goes perfectly with the wip she is carrying around with her all the time...

LOL omg, I didn't even notice the whip before! I can't believe I missed the whip in her hand, I guess I was too busy trying to figure out the jacket.
