All said and done, we need more movies like "Lakshya". I haven't watched a lot of Indian "war movies" (yet to watch Uri), but I doubt if any other Indian movie used war so well as a backdrop to show a character's evolution.

This is a feature of most of's movies but all his characters are upper or upper middle class - privileged folks - poor rich kids. Can't relate to the characters, though one can relate to some of the emotions they go through.

Anyone other than Amitabh Bachchan would have done a better job. He was the weakest actor in the movie. That's saying a lot, considering it had Preity Zinta.

Some complaints about the movie though. The writing could have been better. I cringe at some of the dialogues because they seem so out of place. For instance, all the bits where they wanted to show camaraderie amongst the troops, some of it was idiotic.

The rock climbing scene. Visually, what a treat! Amazeballs. But the background music was the best part of the scene. I remember headbanging through the scene when I first watched it. Was so happy when S.E.L used the same tune/riff for the iconic Rock On!

Every scene with Boman Irani. As the frustrated father of a loser kid at the beginning and then as a proud father of an army man, the man shines at every level. The scene when he and Hrithik have that phone call before the final battle, I well up every time I watch it.

My favourite bits from the movie. Pre-Army Hrithik. Except his hair, his portrayal of a lost kid was perfect.

This morning, on a whim, I decided to watch the 2004 cult classic, "Lakshya" for the umpteenth time. The first time I watched it was only because it had At that time, I was an unabashed fan. I mean, who hasn't danced to "Ek pal ka jeena" alone in their bedrooms?

When relatives use the term "out of concern for you" to criticize a decision, I'd rather cut off from them.

What if we just ignored all the hatred on Twitter? Just don't engage. Don't give them the oxygen they desparately need. What if?
