Five good movies I watced recently.

1. Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa
This animated movie is the sequel to the movie Madagascar which was released in 2005. The movie even though being a sequel is better than its prequel. The animation has improved a better story, more penguin action and a very good soundtrack. DreamWorks Studios are fast conquering the animation market with their movies.

Rating: 4/5

This movie being inspired from the Hollywood flick, The Bucket List, made a good watch even though it lacked a star cast. Vinay Pathak is the lead actor and also produces a movie for the first time. The movie has a good script, excellent acting by Vinay Pathak. The movie is Vinay all the way. Music by Kailash Kher satisfies your ears(songs Alvida and Mumma are good ones). Low budget movies ruling Bollywood nowadays.

Rating: 4/5

3. Shoot On Sight
Starring Naseeruddin Shah, Om Puri, Gulshan Grover, as the main characters the movie is a good watch. Shoot On Sight is a story based on Operation Kratos, the police "shoot-to-kill" policy applied to suspected suicide-bombers after the 7 July 2005 London bombings. The story and acting are the winners here. Naseeruddin Shah and Gulshan Grover steal the show with their
excellent acting. A better script would have made it a better watch.

Rating: 3/5

4. The Last Lear
Directed by Rituparno Ghosh with Amitabh Bachchan, Preity Zinta, Arjun Rampal, Divya Dutta, Shefali Shah and Jisshu Sengupta as the star cast the movie is a must watch for film buffs who like this genre of movies. The script is based on Utpal Dutt's play Aajker Shahjahan. Amitabh Bachchan has done a wonderful job in the movie. Other actors also chip in with good acting. The chemistry between Arjun Rampal and Big B is good.

Rating: 3.75/5

5. Slumdog Millionaire
Dany Boyle has just potrayed the real India in most simple manner. The star cast has lot of names since 9 actors have acted for 3 roles in different parts of the movie. The movie has some exceptional acting by the child actors. Music by ARR is good(Have listened to better ones from the Maestro). The movie is a bit of overhyped according to me. Its basically a Bollywood masala packed in a Hollywood cover.
