What's my Rashee??

             Yes I was asking this same question after being tormented by the latest movie “What’s your Raashee“. Me, my wife and a friend went for this movie today and found it an absolute waste of time. The movie had nothing to offer to its audience. Ashutosh Gowariker has again tried a total new concept which he always does. I still can’t remember a better movie then Lagaan and Swadesh but this one is a total turn-off.

What does movie offer – It’s about a guy who has to get married within a week. He is given a choice with 176 girls to choose from but he decides to meet just 12 of them, 1 from each sun sign. He does so because he reads a book “What’s your Rashee” which tells him that every sun sign has its own distinctive qualities. All 12 girls are played by Piggy Chops depicting metaphor for Harman Baweja’s dream girl. Indeed an original thought.

Movies biggest assets – Priyanka Chopra, She has looked stunning. She has done an amazing job while portraying these 12 poles apart characters. She has acted very well right through the movie. Also, the final song which shows all 12 Priyanka Chopras together is actually the best song and has a very lovely feel in it.

So why did Titanic Sink??
1. Whenever Harman Baweja goes to see a girl there is a song!! 12 songs in total and then 13th when all of them come together.
2. Harman Baweja can’t give expressions for nuts; I found his performance well under average.
3. Duration of the movie, over 3.5 hrs!!
4. All characters had very slackly written role. Excluding Priyanka Chopra everyone failed to make an impression.
5. Climax is stupid and it does not give explanation for why he got married to XYZ girl out of those 12. Almost 8-9 candidates which story makes sure that Harman will not tie the knot with but out of remaining 4-3 why he chooses XYZ!!! I am still searching for that answer.

             Please don’t go and watch it in the theatre because it’s a complete waste of time. If you disagree I would love to hear from you.
