Parinda starts off with Kishen(Jackie Shroff-mullet not too distracting) who is obviously a bad kid because he likes to punch people up wearing a Rambo-esque vest and making sure other goons fall down those stairs he bashes them up on. Kishan works for the big don Anna(Nana Patekar) who's lair isn't too great its a warehouse where he likes to hide bodies in coffins full cement. Inspector Prakash(Anupan Kher) is onto Anna and wants to catch him in the act. Then I'm not being objective because the best character arrives ANIL!!!
Karan disobeys Kishan and runs off to see Prakash, while the baddies follow after him, meanwhile Prakash and Karan sing their childhood song of dosti. Then the famous shootout scene happens, this is a great scene and the use of pigeons is quite blunt on the head, and maybe it didn't need to repeated over and over in Vidhu Chopra's Eklavya. I know its a great scene, but to self reference yourself is just silly! Obviously in this scene Anil has to showcase his wonderful "Omg someone got shot" Blowup scenes, and he is just stellar! Paro(Madhuri Dixit-very unused) now suspects that Karan led Prakash to a trap to get him killed and he ignores him. Also we learn that Anna is mega scared of fire and is generally wacko which Nana can play to the hilt! Karan and Kishan have a faceoff where Kishan blames poor Karan for saying "GO steal that man's bag" and propelling him into a life of crime so that he could pay Karan's way to Amrica

Yup, I'm back to continue to reign in the Masala Pradesh, and be a faithful law-abiding dual citizen of the Shashi Pradesh. I have stocked up on my movies and I'll review some as soon as my computer manages to capture some good screencaps! Here is just a sample of great stuff to come, now that i have the summer off for at least 5 months and what to do!?
- Complete a world record of watching every Anil Kapoor movie ever made (very do-able, since i own a ton already)
- Go to Boston!!
- Try and review my already extensive movie collection, that sat on my shelf during these journalism filled months, gathering lots of dust.
But I'm back and ready to vegetate in front of my movies and have fun in the summer!
