Movie Reviews - Tango Charlie and Mumbai Express

Saw Tango Charlie and Mumbai Express. Tango Charlie (stars Bobby Deol, Ajay Devgan among others) is an alright movie - it's a story of a BSF soldier and his experiences with the contemporary disturbances in India (viz. the Kargil fight, Gujarat chaos, Bodo Fight, etc.) A pretty decent movie. Music is also pretty decent, one of the song "Akkad Te Bakkad Te", very much resembles the "Chappa Chappa" song from Maachis.

Mumbai Express is a total waste of time. Didnt think Kamal would make such an idiotic movie. No story at all. The movie started off with a bit of comedy that was enjoyable, but slowly the story started to drift apart(so did the comedy), and I completely lost interest in watching it half way through. Just a complete waste of time.

I had an ER (Emergency Room) experience a couple of days back for a very bad neck sprain. More on that(and more posts) once I get well.

I thought 'Tango Charlie" is not watchable and the reverse in the case of "ME". Anyhow, a different review.

Take care.

Feel sad to see your comment about M.Express. I liked it a lot better than C.Mukhi. I thought M.Express was a refreshing comedy.

Sorry to hear about the neck sprain. Wondering if it was due to watching M.Express? :)

The war scenes in the movie were well taken. The love story in it was a bit childish. And I liked acting by both Bobby and Ajay.

About Mumbai Express, the first half hour was alright comedywise, then the story had too many diversions and completely lost it's theme. And I didnt have any expectations at all when watching this film.

I am very sorry to hear that. Take very good care of it. I am using that as a test blog to make template changes.

Mr. Narayanan,
Just saw Chandramukhi, the ending was a little bit too much to take. Btw, have you seen the movie "Winner". Thats a very nice comedy, starring Prashanth and Vadivelu.
No, it was a muscle spasm and it was quite bad that I couldnt get up fro bed or eat anything. It's getting better now.

Hi Anand....too much of hoopla, hype and angst by fans of both movies, Chandramukhi and Mumbai express. Once tempers cool down, I hope to see the movies calmly! Meanwhile, I've been seeing worthwhile movies - Monsters Ball, Village and Lakshya! What say I write about them? :)

Thats a valid point! Although I got to tell you that, I am of fan of neither these fellows. If I like good acting or a good story I try to recongise that.

I havent seen Monster's Ball yet, heard a lot about it, should see it soon. Village was a bit hyped up - I thought Shyamalan let out the suspense a little too early. About Lakshya, an amazing movie. I liked it a lot.
