Snapshot of the Story
Bobby is classical innocent love story where two teenage Raj (Rishi Kapoor) and Bobby (Dimple Kapadia) fall in love, but the differences in the family status come in their way as they face many challenges in the acceptance of their relationship. Raj was a son of successful business and Bobby was a daughter of a fisherman. They get opposition from their parents, but their innocent and true love turn out to be the winner tested over time.
“Bobby” is another romantic and trendsetter movie made by legendary Raj Kapoor. Bobby is a story of two teenagers who are unware of the world and some of its evils, but they only believe in true love.
Rishi Kapoor was the perfect teenager and so does Dimple Kapadia and both look the perfect teenage couple. Dressing style of Dimple Kapadia made a lot of controversies. Controversies would be too harsh for the correct word but more like a big buzz in Bollywood. They looked sensational on screen, with every romantic scene touching and reaching new heights.
Bobby is the daughter of a poor fisherman, she is bold and a straightforward girl. Bobby meets Raj and starts dating. With every date they feel that they are for each other and found that they are perfect for each other, but they realize that they are very young for any kind of relationship. Their parents come into their affair and tries to split them. This is the same old plot of Bollywood showing rift between the rich and poor, but it was the screenplay of legendary Raj Kapoor which made it refreshing for the audience.
Bobby was the first movie of Rishi Kapoor as a lead actor and was the debut movie for Dimple Kapadia, but they both showed a lot of maturity in their respective roles. They looked like the perfect couple for Bobby and it turns out to be the perfect launch for Diple Kapadia and Rishi Kapoor.
Legendary Raj Kapoor was the showman of Indian cinema and made some of the finest classical romantic movies. Movies like “Shree 420”, “Chaliya” and many other romantic movies. Dimple Kapadia was the find of the movie and with instant hit she becomes the overnight star, but for Rishi Kapoor he was carrying the thirty year old legacy of his grandfather Prithviraj Kapoor. Laxmikant-Pyarelal was by far the best music director for two decades and worked with R.K. Studio. Bobby has the most romantic music of the 70’s, especially songs like “Hum Tum Ek Kamre Mein Band Ho” and “Main Shayar To Nahin” became instant classical romantic songs of Indian cinema.

Even if Amit and Chandni have accepted what is written in their destiny, but they still love each other.
Their love turns to be an extra marital affair and Amit happens to meet Chandni and their romance is rekindled once again.

Excellent performance made it a classical romantic movie to watch, Amitabh Bachchan is exceptional and director Yash Chopra proved again why he is the king of Romance in Bollywood. The pace of the movie was perfect and engages the audience during the movie. Jaya Bachchan touched the audience with her sensitive performance that touches everyone’s heart and Rekha looked very gorgeous. She has very short role and one should give full credit to her mature performance. Sanjeev Kumar was in a simple character and justified his role with some grace. Yash Chopra was excellent with his screenplay and cinematography.
Silsila bags 8.5 out of 10. This classical romantic story deserve this and credit to everyone who is part the bigger crew and worked like a team effort rather than an individual’s effort.

Namastey London is an unusual and a fresh love story, director Vipul Shat has taken this movie to new heights after his last crime thriller Aankhen.
Namastey London is a story of Brit girl Jazz born and brought up in London and daughter of Indian parents. Jazz’s father Manmohan Malhotra (Rishi Kapoor) decide that he will make Jazz marry one of his friend’s son Arjun (Akashay Kumar) so that she can learn the Indian culture. Jazz refuses to do so but finally agrees to get married under a condition that she will not stay in India and Arjun has to come to London. Jazz never accepts Arjun’s love and continues to love her London based boyfriend Charlie (Clive Standen). Story becomes interesting as how Akshay Kumar manages to win Jazz’ heart and take her back to India.
Namastey London is the story of Arjun (Akshay Kumar) who loves his motherland and their customs and his struggle to find his true love. Jazz (Katrina Kaif) is in love with Charlie (Clive Standen ), however Jazz’s father Manmohan (Rishi kapoor) wants Jazz to marry Arjun so that she can learn Indian tradition and customs which he was not able to cultivate during her upbringing.
On their visit to India Jazz gets married to Arjun but as per the pact Arjun comes to London and starts living in London. After coming to London he realizes that Jazz does not love him and want’s to divorce him and tie the knot with Charlie. Arjun (Akshay Kumar) uses all sorts of ploy to create the love inside Jazz for him. Akshay Kumar fans would love his performance in this movie were he is in a more romantic role leaving behind his action hero image. Arjun (Akshay Kumar) finally manages to impress Jazz (Katrina Kaif) and take her back to India. There are few moments in the movie that ignite patriotism in every Indian who watches the movie. Movie does not loose the grip and flow very smoothly keeping the audience engagd and interested. This has been one of the highlights of Vipul Shah’s direction. Comic timing of Akshay Kumar is good and Upen Patel also did a cameo and was looking very good.
Himesh Reshammiya looked versatile in this movie and successfully experimented different styles of music which was appreciated by the audience. Himesh Reshammiya has matured as a music director since 1998 making his debut with “Pyaar Kiya to Darna Kya”. Sunidhi Chauhan, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Alisha Chinai, well known US based DJ RBD and Himesh himself did a fantastic job in rendering the songs. Movie did average of $15 million in the box office worldwide which is something.
Namastey London has all the ingredients to be a highly entertaining movie with a touch of patriotism. Katrina Kaif looked beautiful and she ha done justice to her role. This is very close to her real life as she joined Bollywood after coming from London. In his second movie Vipul shah has shown signs of a good director. Rishi kapoor played a mature role as Jazz’s father and looked good.
Namastey London scores 7 out of 10 because of solid performance by all the cast especially Akshay Kumar. Namstey London failed to attract large audiences which could be because of a weak storyline but a good one time watch movie.
