The Departed: Eats, shoots and leaves

Oh Bloody Baby OH! Whattafuckin movie! Read on....
1. Never miss a chance to see a Scorsese's film on the big screen.
2. Dont miss The Departed on the big screen.
3. You can always buy a pirated CD -- but since I like Scorsese and particularly recommend this one --- lets wait for the original DVD, yeah? Once that is out -- buy the movie.
4. WHAT FUCKING AMAZING CASTING!
5. As with Scorsese, you get to see another sizeable chunk of Irish living -- those who want to break out of their bloody inheritance and those who learnt to live with the scars and show them off too...
6. Do not talk at all during the movie -- you are likely to miss out on some excellent fuckin lines.
7. Mark Wahlberg and Jack Nicholson have the best lines.
8. What Bollywood must learn -- When you gotta blow someone's brains out, Just DO IT, dont waste time saying Don ko pakadna...
9. Be prepared for the twist in the movie. And the twist in the movie!
10. Watch out for some cool lines to try on your boss or the Colleague You Absolulely Cannot Stand. Wahlberg tells you exactly how to say those too.
11. Bollywood villains: Please take tips on how to be perfectly sleazy from Nicholson
12. Storyline and narrative: taut, gripping, involving the audience and yet keeping a step ahead and keeping them engrossed. The characters and their motivations and attention to detail to every single person is fucking brilliant. And look at the casting! Three of the hottest young stars -- would not have been easy handling different egos. Scene transitions dont smack of any special technical briliance and that's the brilliance. Transitions are very smooth.
13. What happened to the letter Will Costigan writes for the Good Doctor?
14. Matt Damon is no nonchalantly, charmingly fucking evil, you want him REAL bad. :)
15. the use of close ups, spotlights, shadow play and then sudden pan shots...all in the same scene makes you sit up...then the twist makes you fall off your chair.

Since Bollywood will copy the movie, here are some friendly suggestions:
Mahesh Bhatt director
Action sequences by Ram Gopal Verma
Script and screenplay by Farhan Akhtar and Anurag Kashyap
Background score by Sandeep Chowta and Paki band Strings, Menwhopause's Father Monologue for chase sequences
Mark Walhberg = Akshay Kumar;
Matt Damon = Saif Ali;
Leo DiCaprio: Shiny Ahuja/Aby Jr.
Jack Nicholson = though the obvious choice for a sexy old man is Amitabh Bachchan, how about an unobviously sexy man? Boman Irani!!! I can almost see him as this crude, trying to be suave, absolulte psycho, mob-boss bastard... "Do you have your period yet?" haha/
Alex Baldwin = Anupam Kher and
Martin Sheen = Amitabh Bachchan.
Enough! Lookin forward to a second watching....

Saw it day before- for me the movie ended when Jack N died. The madness in his eyes... yes there are ambiguities and the ending could have been less melodramatic (sort of masala). And the good female shrink had nothing to add to the narrative other than some hot scenes.
And Bachchan won’t do- a bit toned down Nana would perfectly fit the bill.

“The Departed" itself is remake of "Infernal Affairs", Hong Kong movie. I won't be surprised to see Bollywood version of it.
