Two different flicks

Saw Dhobhi Ghat and Band Baja Barat. Enjoyed both.

They were extremenly different movies.

I was really moved by the former and just enjoyed the freshness and the celebration of "over the topness" of the latter.

Most people I know did not seem to like either movie. Hmmmmm.

Most people I know hated Dhobi Ghat and most of them liked BBB

That's a coincidence. I watched the same two movies over the weekend and liked both of them :)

I watched Dhobi Ghat last night after I read your post. I quite liked it. I don't know why everyone's bashing it. It's not a great film, but it's certainly a good one.
