  • Khiladi 786 bends low before Talaash at overseas Box Office

  • Sonakshi Sinha Picked Over South Heroine Opposite Akshay Kumar In ‘Thupakki’ Remake

    Southern star Kajal Aggarwal has not made much headway in Bollywood in spite of a blockbuster ‘Singham’ to her credit. After much delay and deliberation she managed to sign a second Hindi film ‘Special Chabbis’ with Akshay Kumar. Kajal doesn’t have much to do in the heist caper. But a female lead with Akshay Kumar is at the end of the Friday, an acquisition. Hence when news of the ‘Thuppakki’ remake filtered out Kajal Aggarwal’s publicity machinery jumped in with proprietorial authority. Says a source, “Kajal played the lead in the Tamil original ‘Thuppakki’, so she was convinced she’d be signed for the Hindi remake, specially since Asin who had done the Tamil ‘Ghajini ‘had been repeated in Hindi by Murugadoss.” Murugadoss confirms he did

  • My views on Akshay kumar in 2012 and his lineup of 2013

    Havent seen Khiladi 786 yet, but have heard its a good entertainer and there is no doubt it has under performed…now when u do 5 films per year and release them on random release dates…these things do happen that even a good film sometimes doesnt fulfil its potential so nothing to worry but my only regret is that why akshay kumar used the Khiladi title for a which was going to get a sandwiched release….genre is another thing as i have heard it has just 2 action scenes and thats too less for a khiladi film but akshay should used have used this title for an event film atleast not a hurried up 5th release of the year….cos i never wanted the khiladi comeback film

  • Kudos to Sajid-Wajid for ‘Dabangg 2′: Prabhudheva

    So when everyone is keenly awaiting Salman Khan’s Dabangg2, it is heartening to see contemporary directors praise the film’s music and its stars. While Prabhudheva has worked with Salman Khan earlier in Wanted and as reported might also team up for another South remake, Prabhu has made it quite clear that he is there to support Salman all throughout. And to make this public, the filmmaker has tweeted on a social networking site on Monday. He tweeted: ‘My very talented frnds Sajid-Wajid have once again done a fantastic job with Dabangg 2 music. All Dabangg 2 songs are superb’ (sic). Of course, Sajid-Wajid have worked with Prabhu Deva in Rowdy Rathore and Wanted, maybe we might have another zabardast pairing with Prabhudheva yet again.

  • ‘Khiladi 786′ Opens Well

    With an eventful 2012 so far, Akshay Kumar has truly been on a roll. While films like Housefull 2 and Rowdy Rathore brought him into the 100 crore club, they also set records for being his biggest openers till date. This is the reason why quite a few went ballistic while assuming that Khiladi 786 would go on to break that record as well and set up something even bigger. While that was an unrealistic expectation considering the fact that this Ashish Mohan directed film was primarily meant to open and fare better at single screens, it was felt that the weekend total of around 40 crore would be a good possibility. Eventually the film did collect around 35 crores which had a better chunk

  • Saw Talaash last night

    Saw Talaash last night. ( Spoilers galore ahead. Don’t read on if you haven’t seen the film) And I am afraid this ghost business spoilt it for me totally. The God business spoilt Jab Tak Hai Jaan , but then there was nothing much right in the film to spoil and I had mentally switched myself off from the film after first ten minutes or so. The God business spoilt Life of Pi for me too, but then the God line comes only in the beginning and end of the film and thankfully, the main narrative tract of the film is not contaminated by the corny and glib validation in the belief of God. So the tale of the boy , the tiger and the
