Movies: Fanaa (Yash Raj) (2006)
It's been a while since I've seen a great Bollywood film - I only saw 2 last year at the cinema (The Rising & Salaam Namaste) and both were disappointing. Thankfully Fanaa is enough to restore my faith. It is a great film. The first half is Aamir & Kajol doing the usual light rom-com Bollywood thing but then the second half becomes a decidedly tense thriller. The film is beautifully shot (the Kashmir scenes were actually shot in Poland), the songs are great, the story is interesting, the humour is good, the drama even better and of course it goes without saying the acting is brilliant as expected from two such talented and charismatic leads. Hopefully this isn't the last Aamir / Kajol pair up! Kunal Kohli has totally surpassed Hum Tum and Yash Raj should be very happy with this.
Next stop Krrish, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, Don and Dhoom 2! If they are as good as Fanaa then this is gonna be a good year for Bollywood! 4/5
