Welcome To New York is releasing tomorrow, and this isn’t the first time a Hindi film title includes a famous city (or a country) in foreign shores. So if your wallet doesn’t allow you to tour the world, you can at least watch these films.
This Ali Zafar and Aditi Rao Hydari starrer has not one but three cities in its title. It’s a fun rom-com and there is one song that really stands the test of time – Voh Dekhnay Mein. It has a peppy feel to it, and its lyrics are very different from your typical love songs.
Starring Shammi Kapoor, An Evening In Paris, is a 1967 film with some evergreen songs. Two of my favorites include Akele Akele Kahaan Jaa Rahe Ho and Deewane Ka Naam Toh Poocho, sung in Mohd. Rafi’s golden voice.
Love In Nepal stars Sonu Nigam, and even though he is one of the best singers in Bollywood by a margin, his acting chops are cringeworthy. It has an IMDB rating of 4/10 which we think is pretty gracious considering the film is a torture to the senses.
This Shreyas Talpade didn’t do that well at the box office, but it was not a terrible film in our opinion. Directed by Nagesh Kukunoor of Hyderabad Blues and Rockford fame, this film will give you a taste of Bangkok even if you don’t find it entertaining story-wise.
Akshay Kumar has done a lot of bad films in his life, but this one definitely takes the cake. What’s strange is that the set design, the production values and the action scenes are top notch but the story, dialogues and the performances are third grade. Still, it’s a good endorsement for Chinese tourism.
