If you watch any Indian movies, you already know Amitabh Bachchan is a wonderfully engaging ham bursting with star quality - CHEENI KUM shows just how great he can be playing a (mostly) human-sized character, a middle-aged but still single Indian man in London with a cranky mother still living with him. (Let's make allowances - he is the Executive Chef/Owner of a top Indian restaurant, after all, so he gets to roar a lot in the early going.) He meets disagreeably but is intrigued by a single Indian woman in her Thirties (Tabu) who won't be pushed around by his arrogance or bellicosity, and who shows him up on the proper cooking of a dish (one of his line cooks mistakenly added sugar instead of salt, which he would have known if he'd bothered to taste it when she first complained to him!). While never exactly admitting he was wrong, he tries to make it up to her - and thus begins a slow slide into the two of them falling for each other, punctuated with lots of increasingly affectionate insults and scoldings.Read more ›
This movie was not one of my favorites because there was no singing or dancing. It was hard to keep me focused, because the music only came on whenever she was leaving him and was walking away. This movie was too drawn out for me but others might like it because it sticks closely with reality. As the relationship grows you seem them fall more in love with each other, from taking walks in the park, having cute nicknames for each other and getting upset when they don't see each other for a day. It shows in the relationship evolving and becoming something beautiful and different than other love stories.
The blu ray disc is spectacular. The picture and the DTS HD sound is amazing. They also have DOLBY TRUHD on here.
I own a lot of Hindi movies that I've copied onto my DVD-R discs and I've been happy with the picture and sound quality. For the first time, I witnessed what a blu-ray disc can do to a movie. I was speechless. The picture quality is 10 times sharper than my compressed video and the sound quality is 10 times sharper than my compressed audio on my DVD-R
So I've donated my copy of this movie in DVD-R and I'm keeping this blu ray disc. It is of course region free and will play easily on any blu ray player in the world. Please be warned that this will not play in a DVD player. This blu-ray disc requires a blu-ray player.
