Maharathi

It's the name of the movie I saw most recently. It's also the name of the blunder I last made. Got induced by a good star-cast that includes Naseerudin Shah, Paresh Rawal, Om Puri and Boman Irani, the movie missed out on something that is unfortunately very crucial - the script. A very shabby movie that gives no scope for even the furnitures to do their part of the role well. 2 hours wasted. Incidentally, I saw this movie with a Maharathi himself.. what say Romi. :)

I am not writing this post for reviewing the movie. I seldom give bad reviews for movies. One of the reasons why my movie reviews in this blog have been few and scattered. To be fair, I have seen horrible movies in the past. Can't remember all, but one of the worst I can is Good Boy, Bad Boy. If GBBY is a good movie, Maharathi could deserve at least a Filmfare if not the Oscar.

I am writing this to record something in my blog for years to come. The record of least number of people while watching a movie broke with this. It was 11 when I watched Shaurya (a good movie). I saw this amazing movie with 8 people.

Can we not claim compensation from the makers of a bad movie like we can from the manufacturers of an inferior product?
