The movie awards this year, be it the 81st Academy Awards or the 15th Star Screen Awards or the 54th Filmfare Awards, have been disappointing. Though Slumdog Millionaire may be a good movie yet I think it didn’t deserve the Oscar for best picture. Similarly a wonderful movie like A Wednesday did not get a single award at Filmfare Awards. Jodha Akbar wasn’t that bad maybe but I don’t think it deserved the Best Film award at both Star Screen and Filmfare. Hrithik won for Best Actor when Nasseruddin Shah gave an awesome performance in A Wednesday? Then we have winners like Tusshar Kapoor for Best Actor in Comic Role for his “wonderful” comedy in Golmaal Returns!! I found the movie “One Two Three” funnier than Golmaal Returns and Arshad Warsi’s comedy a lot better in “Sunday”.
The Pink Panther i.e. the first one starring Steve Martin was a hilarious movie which I enjoyed watching. Here is a scene from the movie where Steve Martin as the French Inspector Clouseau is trying to learn an American accent but fails miserably.
I love watching Oscar awards more than any Filmfare or Star Screen or xyz awards and luckily I have been able to watch it every year except when I was in hostel during my B.E. This year, I got up as early as 6.15 am today to watch 81st Academy Awards live on Star Movies from 6.30 am. This was possible only because today is holiday due to Mahashivaratri. I can catch up on my sleep later. 🙂
The host Hugh Jackman’s performance was awesome!! And the new style of presentation like calling previous winners of the actor categories to announce the new winner was good. The performance before Best Song was wonderful too. But the Academy Awards of 1999 hosted by Whoopi Goldberg was the most enjoyable of all the ones I have seen. Hugh didn’t try comedy one liners and digs at people. Instead he gave a wonderful musical performance with Beyonce.
I know the word Barber has been dropped from the movie name but I couldn’t find a poster without it in Google Images. Moreover I did not see any insult of barbers in the name or movie. One more point before I review the movie point wise.

His sister played by Courtney Cox goes to look for a new job, leaving her son and daughter with Adam.

The Hindi film industry is estimated to be worth 2 billion USD. Its a huge industry starting from the spot boys, the crew to the stars. Its the dreamland of many strugglers who come to Mumbai with hope in their hearts to become to be the next Amitabh Bachchan. But the industry just the like the movies it produces has every element in it… happiness, love, deception , superstition, religion, friendship, emotion , drama, jealousy and sadness. The movie LUCK BY CHANCE is the portrayal of the inside story of the Hindi film industry.
