This is a bit late in the day, but I have to say this. 99 is the funniest, cheekiest Hindi movie I have seen in a long while. I have watched it three times already and I think I could watch it again. It's that kind of a movie.
I thought the cast did a fantastic job. Kunal Khemu is massively underrated and I do wish he gets roles that would give his talent a chance.
And yes, thanks for Mr. Vinod Khanna. It was pure pleasure watching him on screen.
As for the dialogues, they were very, very good, snappy and excellently delivered. Out of curiosity, how many takes did it take to do the scene when Sachin slaps Kuber silly? :)
I know I am going on and on but I loved the way the quirks of both Mumbai and Delhi were portrayed. Having lived in both cities and loving both in different ways, warts and all, I didn't feel as though I had to take sides.
All in all, I would grant you the winning run. I am sure I am not the only one.
First i was irritated witht his guy, but now...now i am in splits for the sheer amount of stupidity he has... it's ridiculously funny... i regret my previous remarks... as i think we wont find such clowns... i am still laughing....guys we found one of a kind clown :) to know the reason check what this lunatic wrote about himself in his blog...
It is a dark and windy place, with reviews and rants,
raves and recommendations, work and madness.. words float along, conjured up and tossed away, like smoke and stray eyelashes. night stretches like ebony-hued spandex, lurid and taut over superhero muscles.. voices — all-knowing women’s voices — chime up, omniscient noir-narrators tell the story of this land, grimy and beat up and brilliant and, oh, so pretty. it is a land of ego and eccentricity and desire and despotism; they call it Sen City
"And so it begins. You can gloss over here for a quick look at my backstory -- if for any unfathomable reason you would be interested. And yeah, I'm genuinely nervous."
What kind of guy says such a cheesy, narcissistic and self-promoting stuff... I thought i would watch this movie but now I wont.. Get a life man! Save others the torture in the name of pseudo-intellect you seem to think you possess....
