Film shows cancelled in Mumbai ‘in honour’ of Bal Thackeray

Film shows cancelled in Mumbai in honour of Bal Thackeray

Mumbai: With emotions running high following Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray’s death, cinema house owners in the city have decided to keep the theatres closed Saturday night and Sunday for security reasons. Film screenings in city theatres were cancelled on Saturday as soon as the news of Sena chief’s demise spread. “For the time being, we have cancelled all the shows in Mumbai. We will decide about running the shows tomorrow after assessing the situation,” an official of PVR cinemas said.

Manoj Desai, owner of Gaiety, Galaxy and Maratha Mandir said, “Yes, we have cancelled all the shows from 6 pm today till tomorrow, as we fear that anything might happen tomorrow. We don’t want to cause any trouble. From Monday, we might run it normally.” Girish Wankhede, deputy GM-Corporate Communications and Public Relations of Cinemax said, “The moment we heard the news, we cancelled all the shows for today and tomorrow across Maharashtra. We have around 56 screens in the state. We have given refund of the tickets.”

Ashish Saxena, Chief Operating Officer- Big Cinema “For today we have suspended all the shows and also advance bookings. We will decide upon tomorrow depending upon the inputs provided by the local police.” Continue reading

Son of Sardaar: How the film has become a hit despite criticism

‘Son of Sardaar’ is minting money at the box office despite receiving poor reviews from the critics. As per trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the film collected Rs 26.93 crore in first two days. The film is expected to continue its good run at the ticket window for some more days and that is likely to turn it into a hit film, but this situation gives birth to a question that what exactly is making ‘Son of Sardaar’ a cash magnet?

‘Son of Sardaar’ did not lose the first battle of publicity against ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ and that paid back the film in a good way. Firstly, it gained the faith of the public that the film could be good because they are not bowing down against a bigger film.

Secondly, the legal between Ajay Devgn Films and Yash Raj Films got ‘Son of Sardaar’ the much needed attention.

“Jab Tak Hai Jaan”… The Endlessness of the Affair : Baradwaj Rangan

At first, we think it’s empty hero-giri. Samar (Shah Rukh Khan), a classic loner, is not with the others of his bomb-defusing team, one of whom struggles to make sense of the tangle of wires in an explosive device at a Leh marketplace. Samar rides in on his motorbike alone, a little later, and when he gets to work, an onlooker remarks that he will not wear a bomb suit. After all, he hasn’t worn one while defusing close to 100 bombs thus far – a record, which fetches him the title The Man who Cannot Die. More remarks follow that build Samar up, in our eyes, as some sort of outrageous superhero. The onlooker says, “Iski aankhon mein aaj tak maut ka dar nahin dekha,” that he’s never seen in Samar’s eyes the fear of death, and he adds that Samar walks up to explosive devices as if walking into a girlfriend’s arms. It all seems to be little but empty hero-giri, the kind of image-stoking, ego-massaging scenario that every big star writes into his contract.

 

But slowly we see that Samar is no reckless hero, that he has a death wish, that he’s really The Man who Wants to Die. For love, naturally. Yash Chopra’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan (co-written by Aditya Chopra) is something of a companion piece to Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (which the younger Chopra directed). Here too, we’re treated to two flavours of Shah Rukh Khan – one silent and withdrawn, one the exuberant embodiment of life itself. Here too, we have Anushka Sharma, playing a Discovery Channel filmmaker named Akira, torn between these two personas – except that, this time, she falls for the introvert. And here too, the big guy up in the sky plays a pivotal part. This time, though, it’s a different god, one who hangs on a crucifix and whom Samar refers to as Sir Jesus. In other words, we’re watching Christ Ne Bana Di Jodi, which could be the title of the translation of Graham Greene’s novel The End of the Affair.

That’s where this film’s plot comes from – at least, a portion of it. But the changes weaken this adaptation. Instead of saving the crucial revelation for the end, which is how we realise how much love there was, we’re clued in to the fact as it happens. And while the heroine of the novel was a married woman, and therefore had more to lose, Meera (Katrina Kaif) is merely engaged to an Englishman named Roger, whom she calls “a really nice guy.” (Translation: he doesn’t stand a chance.) But most puzzlingly, we’re never clued in to why this Punjabi girl worships at the altar of Jesus. We are all free to choose our own deliverers, of course, but wouldn’t it have helped to show how this bond was forged in the first place? (The novel’s Catholic guilt, on the other hand, is instantly understandable.) All we see is Meera transacting with Sir Jesus: “Give me this, and I’ll give up that.” It sounds like child’s play, not a deep-rooted belief system. And how does Samar – someone who does odd jobs in London before becoming a waiter at a restaurant – join the army and turn into a bomb expert? Continue reading

Jab Tak Hai Jaan: Spot the plothole

While die-hard Shah Rukh Khan fans have been queuing up at the theatres to watch his latest release Jab Tak Hai Jaan, several of our cinephiles wrote to us pointing to some of the obvious loopholes in the storyline. Here’s food for thought then…

At the beginning of the film, Anushka Sharma’s perfect ‘dry’ body has been captured jumping off a small island in the middle of a lake. How did she reach the island without getting wet? Also, how did she almost drown when she claims to be a national level swimming champion and even a deep-sea diver later in the film?

A young Katrina in the film looked like a foreigner. Did her skin and hair colour change over the years?

How was SRK hired by the Indian Army after the age of 25. That too directly in the elite bomb defusion unit without prior training? What luck! Continue reading

Rangan on JTHJ

Baradwaj Rangan, on JTHJ.

At first, we think it’s empty hero-giri.

Son of Sardar happened to be the ideal Diwali entertainer!

Son of Sardar happened to be the ideal Diwali entertainer!Who said that only Prabhu Deva can be the master maker of movies and only original movies can do well at box offices? Remakes, inspirations or pickups without Prabhu’s charm can also do wonders as it has happened in the case of Son of Sardar which is helmed by Ashwni Dhir.

But the universal truth of Indian film industry dialogued in The Dirty Picture about entertainment aspect of movie has once again been proved. The rib-tickling romcom is referred as a complete entertainment package and has already rung cash registers with hefty amount of 27 crores in just two days.

Ajay Devgn (Jassi) is a resident of London but flees to India to solve a family tussle between Sandhus and Randhawas and falls for Sonakshi Sinha (Sukh) who belongs from opponent family. The movie is a rollercoaster ride of whether Ajay passes the love test. Besides Ajay and Sonkashi, role of Sanjay Dutt, Juhi Chawla, Vindu Dara Singh and many more written quite well with equal credit in taking the story ahead.

If a ride taken in history of Bollywood romcoms, this movie somehow resembles with Priyadasrshan’s Hulchul starring Kareena Kapoor and Akshay Khanna. Pinch of romance, rib tickling gags and tinge of drama and action, what else is needed to make the viewer capture in the fairytale charm and detaching them from the hustle and bustle of outside world. A rivalry of families and love struggling to bloom amidst the animosity is what SOS depicts. Continue reading

Sanket’s review: “Son of Sardaar” suffers from second half syndrome.

Cast: Ajay devgn, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha, Juhi Chawla.

Director: Ashwini Dhir

Length: 2.15 hours approximately

It’s not a bad thought to make a film which has everything going over-the-top be it action or comedy or dialogue delivery. But that will be accepted only if it’s done with conviction and coherency. SON OF SARDAAR, the much awaited Diwali outing is disappointing a film which promises so much fun in first half but gets totally on different route when the lights are off after the interval.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan': Inspired by Graham Greene’s novel ‘The End of the Affair?

Bollywood, Updated Nov 17, 2012 at 05:25pm IST

A rising writer in London during the World War II falls in love with the wife of a civil servant. She refuses to leave her husband, much to the frustration of her lover. But when their apartment is bombed and her lover is nearly killed, she disappears mysteriously. The writer finds out years later that she had made a bargain with God that she would never see him again if he spared his life.

Sounds familiar?

The plot of ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ is somewhat similar to that of the 1951 novel ‘The End of the Affair’ by British author Graham Greene. Though it can’t be said that Yash Chopra’s swansong is entirely adapted from the novel, but the plot seems to be inspired by it, if only in part. Continue reading
