Saw the late night show of The Legend of Zorro yesterday. It's so hilariously pathetic that it's not even funny. Looked like a rehash of a lot of Hindi movies, especially Amitabh classics. There's a scene in which Zorro comes to the church and asks God soem questions- straight out of Deewar- Khush to bahut hoge tum aaj!!! Then there's a daaru pee(Hindi) ke galli mein padhe hue khud se baatein karne ka scene- Anthony Gonsalves anyone? There's even a scene in which Zorro's son, who is not aware of his mild-mannered father's true identity, asks him- "Have you ever fought with anyone in ur life?" Pls tell me how this was not a direct lift from 'Hum' where Govinda and Rajnikanth ask ex-Tiger the same question!!!
Anyways, no formula was left untouched, resulting in a mish-mash of a movie. Was hugely disappointed. Looks like ages since I saw a good English movie, the last few weeks have given us stuff like Red Eye, Flight Plan, and now Zorro. Am eagerly awaiting 'Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire', as well as 'The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe'. Hope to Gawd these two movies can save the 2nd half of 2005. Cheers to that!
