Bas Ek Pal

Very good plot, wonder why this movie doesn't get much hype, while a moronic K-Jo gets credited for dealing with 'mature' topics.

Very good performances by all the 5 leads, can be attributed to the director I guess. They all, except Urmila who seems to be repetitive as hell,( I think she has only two looks, sexy babe and scared kitten) actually look like normal manipulative people you would encounter every day. (Though you wouldnt want to..)

The whole movie is shot partly in darkness which adds to the whole depressing/ melancholy mood.

Liked the whole permutations idea and especially the last scene between a Juhi and Sanjay.

Of course, could have done without the pretentious hiphop and salsa dancing, but I guess that would be nit-picking.

Verdict : Loved it.

Thanks for the tip. Love Urmila although she has started repeating herself in 'scared kitten' roles.

Sure, Patrix. But be forewarned.. my eye is extremely non-cynical these days.there might be things you'll find jarring (Steve's Hindi for one, but maybe it's supposed to be that way) or many other points. Be sure to let me know what you thought of it!
