A fresh, young and hip bollywood offering of college romance, real friendship and fake identities in the world of Facebook. Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge is a romatic comedy with Facebook playing a pivotal role just as the AOL emails played in “You got mail”. This movie has a lot going for it. There is enough story to keep the movie at a nice pace and the songs support the storyline very well. The songs are very peppy, foot tapping and hummable, Raghu Dixit has done a good job with the music. The star cast is mostly all new comers and they have delivered a very good performance. The dialogs of the film are well penned and makes the college setting very believable. A must watch movie from Y-films.
Now for the most fun part on how to watch the movie. The movie was released a few weeks ago on Oct 14 and is already available on the internet. Watch it in HD, watch it in crisp, good quality and watch it legal, only on Youtube. http://www.youtube.com/movie?v=YKBXFM1SKsc Youtube offers quite a few Indian movies that you can buy and will have access for a certain amount of time; and MFK is currently price at just under $5.00 for a 72 hour access.
Aditya Chopra seems to have a good model going here. Get a good story, debut new star cast, debut a good Indie music director and release it on Youtube. There may be a lot more revenue in this long tail than ever imagined before.
Netflix, move over, I liked watching the movie over Youtube. Here’s another nail in Netflix’s coffin.
