Kurbaan, Twilight and A Christmas Carol…all in the same week! Which movie is worth a watch?

MUMBAI: Ace movie critic Omar Qureshi gives his take on the movie line up this week. This week movie releases have been reasonably hyped, with Saif – Kareena coming together in the steaming scenes of Kurbaan, to the much awaited and delayed release of Twilight in India to the exciting 7 roles played by everyone’s favourite Jim Carrey in A Christmas Carol. Amidst the confusion of which movie is worth a watch on the weekend Omar helps you decide.

Starting with the sensational and slick Kurbaan, distributed by UTV Motion Pictures, the thriller is the directorial debut of Rensil D'Silva and stars Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Viviek Oberoi in lead roles. Om Puri, Kirron Kher and Dia Mirza also feature in it. ''Kurbaan' has a deep-rooted love story to it, but it is not a frothy romantic film that we are time and again exposed to. The love story is much deeper here. There is a definite meaning, purpose and reason to it. Shot in Philadelphia and Brooklyn, it is about Avantika Ahuja (Kareena) who lives in the US and returns to Delhi after her father has a cardiac arrest. While in Delhi, she meets Ehsaan Khan (Saif), a professor whom she marries and returns to the US with. But soon Avantika realises that she is a pawn in Ehsaan's game as he turns out to be a terrorist who marries her in order to cover his identity. Avantika is kept under house arrest where she also finds out that Ehsaan plans to hijack a flight. One of the passengers on that flight is Riyaaz (Vivek), a journalist.

The most read and most awaited movie of the year Twilight, though delayed, is finally releasing in India. The craze for the book had taken over the teenage and the twenty - something crowd like a storm. The widely fantasized and imagined characters are played by Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson & Taylor Lautner. The story revolves around Bella Swan who was not expecting anything out of the ordinary to happen till she meets Edward Cullen, a mysterious and captivating student at her new high school. Bella soon discovers that Edward is hiding a secret, after he impossibly saves her life from a van with his super-human strength and speed. She is determined to unravel his secret, but the truth is more terrifying than she realized. Edward is a vampire and soon Edward and Bella fall passionately and unconditionally in love with each other. And so begins the forbidden relationship between a human and a vampire. However, the young lovers soon discover that their troubles are only just about to begin.

A Christmas Carol by Disney, a multi-sensory thrill ride re-envisioned by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Robert Zemeckis, captures the fantastical essence of the classic Dickens tale in a groundbreaking 3-D motion picture event. Jim Carrey plays an impressive line of 7 roles in the movie for the 1st time ever. Ebenezer Scrooge (JIM CARREY) begins the Christmas holiday with his usual miserly contempt, barking at his faithful clerk (GARY OLDMAN) and his cheery nephew (COLIN FIRTH). But when the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come take him on an eye-opening journey revealing truths Old Scrooge is reluctant to face, he must open his heart to undo years of ill will before it’s too late.
