After Humshakals was criticised by viewers and critics, actor Saif Ali Khan too trashed the film, saying it was regressive and he regretted being a part of it and underestimating his audience’s intelligence.Read more...

GET READY FOR ‘THE DIRTY DOZEN’!
Since the last four years, our Bollywood filmmakers have tried their best to avoid releasing their big films during the IPL Season. But this year is different! One of the biggest multi-starrers in the history of Indian cinema, Housefull 2 is releasing 2 days after IPL 5 kick started! What’s more, there’s immense excitement for the film and is expected to have a rocking start at the box office!
The tagline of Housefull 2 reads ‘The Dirty Dozen’ since the film has as many as 12 actors in leading role – Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, John Abraham, Shreyas Talpade, Asin, Zarine Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Shazahn Padamsee, Rishi Kapoor, Mithun Chakraborty, Randhir Kapoor and Boman Irani! WHEW! And that’s not all! The film also boasts of comic actors like Johny Lever, Chunky Pandey and a special appearance by veteran actor Ranjeet! And not to forget, there’s an item number as well, done by none other than Malaika Arora Khan! Moreover, the film is directed by Sajid Khan and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. These big names itself have been a significant factor why the film has grabbed eyeballs.
The film is expected to have immense confusions and lot of laughs as the names of the four guys is the same – Jolly! Sajid has admitted that it’s going one of the most complicated and complex storyline ever attempted in Bollywood. The film has been filmed in stunning locales of London and Thailand and has energetic music. Papa Toh Band Bajaye and Anarkali Disco Chali is already a rage while Do You Know has caught on too!
However, the film has few odds in its path. The costs are too high. Sajid’s previous two films were big hits but there was a chunk of moviegoers who hated them! Hence, many are skeptical about Housefull 2 and will be adopting ‘wait-and-watch’ policy. Moreover, many viewers decide to watch a film after going through reviews. However, in case of Housefull 2, there won’t be any press show and hence reviews will start pouring on only after Friday 11 am! This might affect Day 1 performance of the film although trade pundits have predicted huge opening from the first show itself.
I admit without hesitation that I love Sajid Khan’s films and hence I hope Housefull 2 works and that all its shows for the first 3 days are Housefull!

NOW WATCH TITANIC IN 3D!
For many, just like me, Titanic was the first Hollywood film they saw it in theatres. The film created tremendous buzz at the times of its release and is one of the biggest Hollywood hits in India. But those who missed it on big screen or want to relive the experience now has a chance to see the film on the big screen, that too in 3D! Starting from today, the film will be releasing in 3D as well in 2D in English, Hindi, Tamil and few more languages across the country! Often films shot in 2D and later changed to 3D have been disappointing. But producer Jon Landau, who was recently in Mumbai, said that they have worked for 60 weeks on converting the film to 3D and director James Cameron has supervised it. He promises the film to be an all-new experience in 3D, even if you have seen the film a hundred times! Let’s see whether Landau’s claims prove right!
