'Taken' is a French thriller film in English language directed by Pierre Morel.It was later released in US with some scenes edited out to get a PG-13 rating.

Liam Neeson plays the role of CIA agent Bryan Mills our protagonist.It is one of the best characters he ever played in his entire career.This movie made his stardom shine more in the celebrity world.This is one movie which i can watch it more than a million times.It has some awesome dialogues,and in Liam's rough voice they sound more awesome.Here is a sample...
"I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you."
So if you are a fan of action thrillers you must watch this movie.And if you are not,then also you must watch this movie.

Genre : Romance, Comedy
Cast : Katherine Heigl, James Marsden and Malin Akerman
'27 Dresses' is a 2008 romantic comedy directed by Anne Fletcher.I don't know why(may be because i like Katherine Heigl),i really love this movie.
It says the story of Jane Nichols (Katherine Heigl) who served as bridesmaid 27 times and next is her younger sister's wedding.But her sister is getting married to a man Jane is secretly in love with.You might think i have told you the whole story of it,well it is not exactly like that.Once you watch the movie,you will understand it.
Katherine Heigl as a 'young-women-in-a-confused-and-worried-state' acted her role beautifully.Its a simple movie and if you like to watch romantic comedies,it's a must watch.I always like to watch this.

Jeremy Renner,Scarlett Johansson and Tom Hiddleston
I really have no idea where to start..!!.This movie is the ultimate celebration of CGI.This movie is worth of every single penny you spend on it and you should watch it in 3D.
Before you watch 'The Avengers'(2012), if you have watched the first two movies of Iron man series(2008&2010),Captain America(2011) and Thor(2011) , it will really help you to understand the main characters of the story.In 'The Avengers', Nick Fury, director of the peacekeeping organization S.H.I.E.L.D., recruits Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk, Black Widow and Thor to form a team that must stop Thor's brother Loki from enslaving the human race.Then the protectors starts their job.
There is not much to explain about the movie apart from the word 'A-W-E-S-O-M-E'. The best part i liked about the movie is the subtle humor which is added in almost all the scenes.That is what makes this movie different from 'Transformers series' or similar full fledged CGI action movies.And just like all previous MARVEL character's movies, this one too have an important 'after the end credit scene' which will give you a hint about the 'Avengers-2' plot.
It's a must watch movie and best summer movie to watch.Show it to your kids,watch it yourself.It's an ultimate entertainer.

Cast : James McAvoy, Jim Broadbent and Bill Nighy
From the moment i saw the teaser of 'Arthur Christmas',i wanted to watch the movie because of the interesting concept.So i was waiting to watch it.And i watched it yesterday.Take this review as a warning.
'Arthur Christmas' tells the story of Arthur,the son of the Santa Claus.And showed it how Santa actually delivers millions of gifts all over the world in every single christmas night without a failure.Santa lives with his family in North pole and things his younger son Arthur is good for nothing,but when he fails Arthur and grandpa santa goes out to solve that issue.
Now this story and concept looks awesome and interesting when you read it in an article or as a synopsis.But in real it's one of the most boring animation movie i have ever seen in my life.I couldn't believe Sony pictures who came up with 'Cloudy with the chance of meatballs' came up with something like this.It's not entertaining,not even for a second.It won't make you think what will happen next.It will only make you think,when is this going to be over?.An amazing concept with a ruined screenplay.
So my verdict is 'watch it at your own risk'.I don't really think children will like it either.

Director : Paresh Mokashi
Genre : Drama
Cast : Nandu Madhav, Vibhawari Deshpande and Atharva Karve.
Many foreigners thinks Indian film industry is called as Bollywood.But it is entirely wrong.Hindi film industry is called as Bollywood(that too only by media,i don't think any of the actors like the name Bollywood).There is a huge difference between Bollywood and the real Indian film industry.Bollywood doesn't make 800-1000 to movies a year alone.India is a big country and fortunately or unfortunately, we have 22+ languages in this country and most of the states have their own film industry which speaks their language.Which all together produce more movies in a lesser budget with better content than Bollywood.
Harishchandrachi Factory is a Marathi movie released in 2009 directed by Paresh Mokashi.The movie is the story of Dadasaheb Phalke who is the father of Indian cinema.Story is set in 1913.He travels to England and learns the movie making technique.The society thinks he has gone crazy.His family supports him even when they struggle financially.
Some of the regional film industries in India are blessed with awesome actors who has natural talent and stage drama acting experience.Just like Bengali,Malayalam and Assamese, Marathi film industry is one of them.Nandu Madhav who plays the role of Dadasaheb Phalke does justice to the role with his awesome acting.Vibhawari deshpande who portrays Mrs.Phalke also did good job. Altogether it's a must watch movie.
