  • Dabangg 2 trailer to release with Son Of Sardaar

    After making a special appearance (which is touted to be more an item song) in Son Of Sardaar (SOS), Salman Khan has now also decided to launch the trailer of Dabangg 2 with the Ajay Devgn-Sanjay Dutt starrer. Apparently the actor, who starred in Yash Raj Films’ Ek Tha Tiger last, was expected to release the trailer of this much-awaited sequel with YRF’s upcoming film, Jab Tak Hai Jaan (JTHJ). News of his growing closeness to the production house had fuelled this rumour. But his decision to launch it with SOS — even though both the films (SOS and JTHJ) are expected to release on the Diwali weekend, November 13 — has proved those speculations wrong. “Salman’s relationship with YRF is great, but he felt releasing

  • Movie Review: LUV SHUV TEY CHICKEN KHURANA by FENIL SETA

    Every second person I know well is a foodie. Food is an intrinsic part of our lives in our country. Guests are not expected to leave the host’s residence without having the customary meal. Food assumes maximum importance in weddings. One will forgive the ladkewaale and ladkiwaale for apology in the name of marriage venue, lights, flowers, seating arrangements etc but would not forgive them for apology in the name of food. Then there are restaurants that turn legendary for serving the most delicious and ‘exclusive’ food dishes. Many of them have their own recipes which are kept secret and any rival restaurateur might be ready to go to any length to get hold of that secret. Funnily and strangely enough, in a country so

  • 1920 – Evil Returns Beats Heavy Promotion Spend Films-BOI

    Saturday 3rd November 2012 14.30 IST Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network 1920 – Evil Returns has recorded better opening day collections than many medium budget films which had a big publicity spend like Kahaani, Gangs Of Wasseypur, Ferrari Ki Sawaari, and English Vinglish. The publicity expenditure on these films was as much or more than the total cost of 1920 Evil Returns but all these films recorded lower opening days than 1920 – Evil Returns which had very little publicity. The heavy publicity must be for the initial as there is no other reason for such cost outlays but when sub 3 crore collections are recorded with heavy spends there must be a disconnect somewhere. It can be argued that these films are only putting up these

  • PK has no resemblance to OMG-Oh My God: Raj Kumar Hirani

    The soft-spoken RajkumarHirani, who is not known to lose his equanimity easily, is an angry man. He is upset with the volley of reports that have been appearing of late, aimed at ‘sabotaging’ his under-production film PK. Especially damaging, say his friends, are the comparisons with the recent AkshayKunar-PareshRawalstarrer OMG-Oh My God, and the rumours that the similarities may have forced him to rewrite the script entirely, pushing back the schedule indefinitely. A crewmember (on request of anonymity) told TOI, “Somebody is clearly out to sabotage PK. And that is simply because Hirani is a man of few words. PK has no resemblance to OMG-Oh My God, it is an entirely original film. Hirani took his time to write it and he is not a

  • Akshay Kumar enjoying the best phase of his career?

    Posted in : Bollywood,Joginder Tuteja  November 3rd, 2012 When an offbeat film of yours ends up finding all-around appreciation, starts breaking records, gives a character artist a hero status, battles challenges that could have been reputation threatening and ends up gaining a cult status for itself, it can be pretty much said that things are indeed falling in place for you as a filmmaker. Akshay Kumar may well be saying this to himself, what with ‘OMG – Oh My God’ cruising towards the 80 crore mark just in India and carrying a decent chance of registering 100 crore in worldwide collections. This, when two of his films (Housefull 2, Rowdy Rathore) have already joined the 100 crore club this year and one more (Khiladi 786)

    The Delhi High Court Friday asked the Competition Commission of India (CCI) to “urgently” pass the order on a plea filed by actor Ajay Devgn against the alleged monopolistic practices adopted by Yash Raj Films in ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’.

  • Why SRK should be afraid of Ajay?

    The whole industry seems to be astounded by Ajay Devgn’s decision to release his film ‘Son Of Sardar’ on the same day as Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ directed by Yash Chopra. The legendary director and the king of romance returns with a film after Veer Zara (Nov 2004). This film also marks the return of SRK into romance.

  • JTHJ VERSUS SOS: CONTROVERSY AJAY DEVGAN DRAGS YRF TO COMPETITION COMMISSION OF INDIA

    Ajay Devgn Films (ADF) has served Yash Raj Films (YRF) a notice and filed a case against it in the Competition Commission of India for “abusing its clout to deny ADF its rightful due in the Diwali release of its Son Of Sardar”. ADF has accused YRF of monopolistic practices by using its dominant position in the market to enter into an arrangement with the exhibitors that it would give them Ek Tha Tiger only if the exhibitors agreed to give its (YRF) Diwali release, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, prominence over others.
