  • An Open Letter To Mr Uddhav Thackeray

    Dear Mr Uddhav Thackeray, Firstly and very honestly, it’s really very unfortunate to know about the demise of your father, Mr Balasaheb Thackeray. His contribution has been immense in shaping Maharashtra’s history and also in shaping the lives of Maharashtrians. His legacy will live on for sure. May his soul rest in peace. At the same time, I would like to bring to your notice the fear mania that gripped the city after news came out that your father has left for heavenly abode. People ran out of their offices and workplaces to reach home. Shops downed their shutters immediately. This is entirely a personal choice and I would not like to comment on it. But there are certain shopkeepers who preferred to keep their

  • Aamir’s Frenemy No 1 ( www.openthemagzine.com )

    Reema Kagti, the 40-year-old director of Aamir Khan’s upcoming Talaash, is a picture of calm when confronted with questions of her so-called ‘difficult’ working relationship with the actor. Tabloids have it that Khan, who has been accused in the past of ‘interference’ and ‘ghost direction’, squared off with her routinely through the 90 days of filming. Kagti, a strikingly skinny lady who sports a close-crop, says right off the bat that there were no ‘creative differences’. And certainly no fiery ‘showdowns’. “Not everything you hear about Aamir is true,” she says, obliquely referring to ‘rumours’ that much of the film had to be re-shot on his insistence, and that, according to one Mumbai Mirror report, he ‘sat for the edit of the trailer and saw

  • Film with Salman not going to happen, says Shah Rukh

    Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan says his longstanding “disagreements” with Salman Khan will not come to an end courtesy a film, a filmmaker or an actress. And neither would it be on a public platform. The two Bollywood icons, who did films like “Karan Arjun” and “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” together, had a major fight in 2008 at Salman’s then girlfriend, Katrina Kaif’s birthday bash. Even as Katrina hopes to produce a movie featuring Shah Rukh and Salman, SRK says it’s not going to happen – not at anyone’s behest. “My thing is that we had a little bit of personal issue. This is not the first time. It was four years ago and it had been before. We (Salman) have been very close for

  • Weekly Thread – International BO last weekend – Nov 09-11 2012

    North America: ——————————— As expected “Skyfall” opened with a bang and recorded the biggest opening for a Bond movie even if ticket price inflation is considered. The movie opened at Thursday midnight with an estimated $2.2 million, and pulled in $88.36 million over the weekend for a total opening of $90.56 million. Little is needed to talk abt the film as almost everyone is aware of it, except that critics are going ga-ga over it (as evident from 91% tomatometer score), western people are loving it (evident from box office record breakings), but reviews from desi people are quite opposite. A couple of feedbacks from NG and some from my real-life friends are not positive at all. My question to the ones who disliked it,

  • Aamir Khan will take a shower In Talaash , again

    Remember Aamir Khan’s shower scene in Ghajini, which turned out to be a turning point in the film? A similar shot will feature in the actor-filmmaker’s new film Talaash too. If sources are to be believed, a shower scene in Talaash will also play a pivotal part in the movie. It will see Aamir, who plays Inspector Shekhawat, get to the root of the problem that he fights against. “The scene in question was shot in a flat that belongs to hairstylist Avan Contractor’s mother. It was a one-take shot,” said a source. Considering the success of Ghajini, there could be a possibility that the actor feels the shower scene is his lucky charm.

  • First look at Lily Collins in “Mortal Instruments”

    Written by Nix, November 14, 2012 With “The Twilight Saga” wrapping up this year, all the movies based on young adult novels (and there are a LOT of them coming your way) are all lining up to replace it as the go-to franchise for your hard-earned dollars. Well, we are talking about teen girls here, so maybe “hard-earned” isn’t entirely correct. Let’s just say, highly disposable dollars, then. Anyways, here’s your first look at Lily Collins, she of the amazing furry eyebrows, in “The Mortal Instruments”, an adaptation of the Cassandra Clare series of novels about a young teenage girl who must battle the forces of evil while falling in love and all that good stuff. In the film, Collins plays Clary Fray, a “seemingly
