Review: Here Comes The Boom/Argo (Also Bollywood)


As I mentioned, I did also go and see Jab Tak Hai Jaan, a Bollywood movie released as part of Cineworld’s annual Bollywood month of November. I really enjoyed this film, but I’m not going to review this or any of their other Bollywood movies for two reasons. The first is simply that these films are being released as well as the usual Cineworld movies, which would practically double the amount of films I would have to go and see and I simply don’t have time to do this. The second and the more pertinent reason though is that I found some aspects of these films odd, or badly done, when it is obviously just the style that they are made in, which I just don’t know enough about. While I would love to describe what I thought of these films, I don’t think I’d be able to do them justice in a review without first knowing the conventions of Bollywood cinema. As I don’t know these things, doing a review wouldn’t be a good idea as I’d probably get it all wrong and say things were bad when they were deliberate, etc. I just don’t know enough about Bollywood to comment on its films properly. I would however recommend Jab Tak Hai Jaan, because I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s long, but it has an intriguing plot, good music, interesting characters and the action moves along at a good pace. I would definitely recommend it.
