American Hustle

Ten Oscar nominations. And the mystery continues. At least for me.

This must be the umpteenth Oscar celebrated movie that fails to echo the critics applause from the audience. No, the movie cannot be categorized as being a "hell ride" or a respectable "Avoid it" Film, but it was thoroughly disappointing, which might have been because of the over expectations that I threw on the film from the moment I laid my eyes on the Cast!
Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence.

Inspite of the predictable storyline, the movie does have few of those brilliant moments, where I was left to wonder the artistry with which some of these reputed directors bring out emotions such as 'Friendship', 'love' and 'jealousy' even in the most unimaginable of places. There are these dialogues, and these actors, who somehow don't just act but live the roles given to them, transforming these mediocre story lines on screen into a window that peeps into the lives of the characters portrayed.

Everyday con story. Dragging. Boring. Moment of brilliance with Exceptional acting.

This is not a film that you want to catch on the weekend, but might still be a good watch one year down the line at home.
