THE SOCIAL NETWORK
There is no escaping Facebook and now there is a film about the founding of the social networking site. Directed by David Fincher (“Alien 3”, “Fight Club”, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”), “The Social Network” is adapted from the book, “The Accidental Billionaires” by Ben Mezrich. The film stars Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake Arnie Hammer, Max Minghella and Rooney Mara.
Of the Deepavali releases, Rohit Shetty's “Golmaal 3” has given much bang for buck while “Action Replayy” (strange spelling notwithstanding) has turned out to be a bit of a damp squib. The jokes fly around fast and furious and Mithun Chakraborty and Ratna Pathak Shah as long-lost lovers are a hoot. Shetty has cleverly evoked Mithunda's Disco Dancer and Gun Master G9 avatars. What joy!
Jimmy Shergill and Sanjay Suri star in the spooky film, “A Flat”. Produced by Anjum Rizvi and Raaj Varma and directed by Hemant Madhukar, the film is about a man (Shergill) who returns to India, and gets locked in a house. When all his attempts to unlock the doors prove futile, it becomes clear to him that there is a supernatural power at play. Hope the film does not turn out to be as silly as it sounds!
