Countdown to War: 8

Peace and Love Everyone!

Hope you’re having a great week! I’ve begun this post days before you’ll even see it because I didn’t want to wait til the last minute to watch these two movies.

I’m sitting here about to watch my all-time favorite Bollywood film ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham’ (KKKG). While Devdas is my favorite because of the classic Hindi style dancing and clothing, KKKG is my all-time favorite for so much more. I love the storyline, how much fun it is and of course, it stars my four favorite Bollywood Actors, King Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Amitabh, and Kajol. What a fabulous cast? I have to change it to favorite five because Rani Mukerjee is also in the first part of this movie. Except for Amitabh, the actors hadn’t been established back then. Even Shah Rukh Khan wasn’t as big a star then as he is today. Together these actors created a timeless piece.

I’ve watched this movie several times, and I love it every time. The actors have created a believable world of love and family on screen. Hrithik, of course, is a wonderful actor in this. It isn’t an action film, but this drama is the most touching.

It starts with who you eventually learn is the younger brother, Rohan, played by Hrithik. His last cricket game of the season before going home. As he is about to hit the ball, he thinks of the advice his brother gave him about succeeding — touching moment. His first stop is to see his grandmothers who he hears speaking about his older brother, Rahul, played by Shah Rukh Khan. The topic of discussion is why he hasn’t been home. The grandmothers tell the tale of what happened to Rahul. Once Rohan finds out why his brother left, he takes it upon himself to find his brother and bring him and his family back home. Rohan’s journey begins. Not an easy feat.

This dramatic tale is so beautiful, and moving it might influence you to make up with your family. I said, maybe.

There are several movies between his first movie and this one, and you could see the changes and improvements

You can see it on Amazon Prime. I would recommend it. I loved it so much I would give it 🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩 out of 5 starry-eyed emojis. I cried like a baby through some of the beginning and the last thirty minutes of the movie.

Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai (KNPH) was Hrithik’s first major movie. He had small parts in several other movies before this one. Who would have known after this cute film that he would go on to be a big star?

In KNPH Hrithik plays Rohit, a car salesman who dreams of becoming a great performer. During his journey, he falls in love; unfortunately, this love could cost his life.

No Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai does have a happy ending, you’ll have to watch the whole movie.

I don’t want to ruin it for you, but there are several unanswered questions that this movie raises. They play with the double ganger theory, and I guess it works. Either way, whether he plays Rohit or Raj, he’s pretty good. And did I forget to mention there is a fight scene? Pretty good for his first major movie.

So which direction are you leaning? I, myself and leaning towards Hrithik. I’ll make a decision or hope to after watching Tiger’s movies. Of course, as I said, Tiger doesn’t have the years of experience or the films to match Hrithik, but maybe he has something else.

Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai was cute. I would give it 🤩🤩🤩 , and 1/2 starry-eyed emojis.

It’s not available on the regular streaming apps I had to resort to YouTube. The quality was pretty good regardless, and there is even a subtitle version.

Well, that was my last Hrithik Roshan movie. Next week I’ll review Student of the Year 2, Baaghi 2, and Munna Michael.

Only a few weeks to go before the movie releases.

Until next week…..

Peace and Love
