  • Kung Fu Panda 2 is pure awesomeness! – Rediff Review – 4 Stars.

    Kung Fu Panda never bore the burden of heightened expectations. But its sequel, like all follow-ups to a giant success, is entitled to the probability of bigger and better. While its 3D stature, super smooth computer graphics and endless supply of flat out Wuxia takes care of the scale, is Kung Fu Panda 2 better than its predecessor? Frankly, it doesn’t matter because irrespective of what age, you’re going to revel in the unstoppable madness, mayhem and melodrama of the coolest, cuddliest and chubbiest panda in the history of animation. Or at least DreamWorks. Let’s admit it, a sequel was always on the cards, it’s an eventuality we all kind of hoped for. And so there’s no reason to protest especially when the upshot is

  • Underrated/Forgotten: KINARA (1977)

    Anubhav Sinha’s ‘Tum Bin’ is one my favorite romantic movies of recent times. Its premise of the hero trying to make amends for an accidental death caused by him was heartwarming and gave ample scope for dramatic situations. While watching ‘Kinara’, written and directed by Gulzar, I was reminded of ‘Tum Bin’ as this movie had essentially the same premise as the modern day musical. Starring Jeetendra, Hema Malini, and Dharmendra (in an extended cameo)- Kinara is a touching tragic tale of love and fate. Jeentendra plays the rich nephew of a famous architect. While driving to catch a performance by a noted classical dancer (played by Hema Malini), he meets with a disastrous road accident. Six months hence, when fully recovered, he travels to

  • Imran to sing funny qawaali in DB

    Last week, Aamir’s wife Kiran Rao shot a music video for Delhi Belly in which Imran Khan in what ranks as a ferociously funny first for the actor, is dressed to the gills as a Ghazal singer, oiled hair, paan in the mouth and loads of gold rings in the finger. The character is said to be modelled on Naseeruddin Shah’s ghazal singer character in Sarfarosh and on, of all people, Pankaj Udhas. Says a source, “The number that Kiran shot takes a potshot at the whole Ghazal culture. Imran was playing what looked like a mixture of Naseer’s character in Sarfarosh and Pankaj Udhas. While we shot the number, everyone present was rolling with laughter. Imran himself would break into a giggle in the

  • salman vs sanjay dutt – what a joke!

    some ppl are comparing sanjay dutt and salman now. the purpose of this post is two fold. one, to show what kind of posts i believe in and 2, to set the record straight on another myth. i do that on the basis of numbers. sanjay dutt was so badly rejected by the ticket buying public that in 5 (81-86) years he didnt have one hit except vidhaata. in fact he had so many distrous flops that it must be a world record. then he had half a hit in naam, in 86 and then for another 5 years not a single hit till 91. his 1st clear hit saajan, came in 91 with salman khan. i never get into giving my opinions on who

  • Day 1: Undertow – Kashish Queer Film Festival

    The second Kashish Mumbai International Queer Film Festival, inaugurated by filmmaker Sai Paranjpye, and Pooja Bhatt, last night (May 25) at the Cinemax multiplex in Andheri was a well-attended event, that surprisingly was spot-on with time, as the opening film, Undertow, was screened at the exact (9pm) hour it was scheduled for, with every seat taken, and a full house not delayed by unnecessary star brigade fanfare. In a way, at the cocktail warm-up at 7pm, the affair was what it seemed it would be as celebrity guests ambled in, and could be counted into a handful. Theatre personalities Mahesh Dattani, Dolly Thakore, Alyque Padamsee, film-maker Onir, actor Sameer Soni, film critic Khalid Mohammed, were the few who turned up for the festival. There was

  • pyaar ka punchnama holds well on weekdays

    Though PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA got sidelined at the box-office due to the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN wave, the film is gradually stabilizing itself on weekdays. The general trend is that the business of films shows a big slump on weekdays, if the weekend business hasn’t been strong, but PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA was rock-steady on Monday and Tuesday.In fact, at some centres, the film grossed better numbers than Friday. The India theatrical breakup is as follows:- Fri: 92 lacs Sat 1.10 cr Sun 1.23 cr Mon 61 lacs Tues 60 lacs [early estimates] Total so far: Rs 4.46 cr nett read rest from here http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/trade/special_features/index.html

  • Shaitan Music is Wicked!

    This summer’s scorching soundtrack is here and is likely to be lurking through your darkest seasons in the sun. Confession time. The first promo of Shaitan, featuring a snippet of the soundtrack that was to arrive later, had me reaching out for poppers…erm…I mean popcorn, or popsicle, anything that would put me into a frenzy. The little that I saw and heard was Bali- The Sound of Shaitan. Listen to it, and if it does not put your head into a spin, what are you smoking? Savaal sava lakh ka, who has not been waiting for the ecstasy-laced soundtrack of Shaitan? With its now cult-following arrival, is also the inevitable delay in trying to analyze it. The music, like the film’s psychedelic poster art, is

  • What do you make of this quote?

    Rishi and Neetu Kapoor are currently on holiday in the US. At the moment, Rishi is focusing on what he describes as re-charging his batteries. “We were in Las Vegas. Now we’re in New York. I return this week and get back to work.” Rishi and Neetu are travelling without an entourage. And as mentioned, with Ranbir firmly ensconced at Krishna Raj. Says Rishi, “I am not insecure about travelling alone. My wife and I are as human as anyone else and we can deal with situations. Actors make so much money. Where do they enjoy the fruits of their toil? I’ve been travelling with wife and children and now with just wife and no extra baggage for 31 years. I love it.” Rishi then

  • Yakkety Zinta caught unawares !

While returning from Dharamshala the other day, your diarist happened to be sharing the plane ride with Preity Zinta and her Punjab boys. And if we didn’t have the arduous task of reporting faithfully to you, we would have, like Amitabh Bachchan in “Sholay”, put cotton wool in our ears and slept through the hour-and-ten-minute-long journey while this Basanti jabbered away. So, here it is, Preity unexpurgated, talking to Punjab XI captain Adam Gilchrist: Preity starts, “I guess I’ll be seeing a lot of Shane Warne now. Elizabeth Hurley and me have a

  • Underrated/Forgotten: YATEEM (1988)

    This is my first post in the series on rare, relatively unknown classics from the Indian Hindi Film industry ONLY- and kabhi kabhi for revisiting popular classics too- coz it is hard to stay away from fast food for long!! Enjoy ‘Western’ is a really popular genre in Hollywood. But if we have to look for a Hindi movie that can be put in a similar bracket, we won’t go further than Sholay. However there are many other lesser known Bollywood movies that embody the western spirit- shot in virgin countryside, with horseback chases, gunshots, dacoits, loot, and romance. Yateem, written and directed by JP Dutta (the man who made ‘Border’), is one such movie. I had not heard about this one at all until
