Does Dabangg 2 deserve to break 3 Idiots’ record?

Dabangg 2

WILL DABANGG 2 CROSS BUSINESS OF 3 IDIOTS?

As biggies after biggies keep releasing, one question always arises – will this film be the one that will beat the box office record of 3 Idiots? 3 Idiots, released in 2009, collected 202 crores from India alone and is the only film to do so. More than dozens of biggies, starring A-listers, have released since then. But not a single film has managed to get beat this record, although the number of screens and audiences has increased considerably and so has the ticket price. But then, 3 Idiots was special. It didn’t even have a 2000 screen release, which is the norm today for any biggie today, and yet collected so well. This is because the film was an outstanding product in all respects. Viewers loved to see the film twice and even thrice, in theatres that too – a significant reason why it netted so much.

3 years on, not a single film of the stature of 3 Idiots has released and hence it’s not a surprise why the record of 3 Idiots remains unbeatable. Continue reading

The Last Superstar

hese final years of Rajinikanth’s career are historic in their import, for never again will we see the likes of him.
Rajesh Khanna is usually called the first superstar. Never before, we hear, was an actor known to cause such frenzies among fans. Rajinikanth, then, is the last superstar. Never again will an actor rise to such heights of popularity, inspire such depths of devotion. These are the days of stars, certainly, but the sustained aura around movie-going that gave rise to the cult of stars is not there anymore. Our time is too divided. There is too much to do apart from watching movies once, twice, several times, and brag to friends that we were there first day, first show, etching ourselves into the only kind of history available to mere mortals. And superstars of the magnitude of Rajinikanth need that aura. They can be fostered only in eras where movies conflate into myths. What we have, these days, is mere excitement surrounding a new release. When a film is released in hundreds of screens, and when, if you don’t get tickets in one theatre it’s always possible to dream of seats in another, a small stake is driven into the bloodlust of the fan. Today’s stars are commodities stocked in a chain of supermarkets. They can never be superstars.

Rajinikanth himself may be never know how and why he became a superstar. Others were better looking, better enunciators of dialogue, better performers, better dancers, better clotheshorses. His transition from villain (or at least, a grey-shaded character) to hero is possibly one of the great mysteries of the cinema. He seemed so right as the bad guy. He carried such a charge, he left the hero in the dust. Of Rajinikanth it could be said that he would have become a superstar even if he hadn’t made the transition to hero. There was such excitement when he walked across screen. It felt alive. We often say that an actor has charisma, and we often struggle to describe what it is, what singular aspect constitutes this charisma, but with Rajinikanth you could point to Moondru Mudichu or Avargal and say, “That is charisma.” Science has taught us that two negatives make a positive, and it appears, in Rajinikanth’s case, that all those negatives combined into an electrifying positive. You cannot plan this. It just happens.

Bollywood in 2012: one last look

When we look back at 2012, it is with much affection but also profound regret. The year is one of the most decisive ones in the history of Bollywood. On one hand, 12 films became blockbusters. These are Agneepath, Rowdy Rathore, Ek Tha Tiger, Barfi!, Housefull 2, Bol Bachchan, Oh My God, Kahaani, Raaz 3, Cocktail, Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Son Of Sardaar. On the other hand, it was also the year when one by one, showbiz lost many of its luminaries, including Rajesh Khanna, Yash Chopra, Dara Singh, B R Ishara, Dinesh Thakur, Ashok Mehta, Joy Mukherjee, A K Hangal, Jaspal Bhatti.

A look at the top newsmakers:

Yash Chopra: His passing away on October 21, 2012 signalled the end of not just an era but the death of romance. Yashji defined the most tender moments on celluloid, weaving stories that glorified the pristine places of the heart as it drove wildly into the one-way street called love. Yashji continued to make news even when he was gone, though not particularly of the kind he would have liked. Ajay Devgn’s company sent a legal notice to Yash Raj Films, alleging unfair monopolistic practices while acquiring theatres for the screening of Jab Tak Hai Jaan. Caught in the middle, Kajol, the heroine of Yash Raj Films’ most successful product, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, did not attend the premiere of Jab Tak Hai Jaan. Some say she was not invited. Others say she had no choice but to be loyal to her husband Ajay. As the chaos continues, Yash Chopra must be smiling down from Heaven wondering if there’s a movie to be scripted based on his colleagues’ reactions to his final adieu. Continue reading

Dabangg 2 Has 7.75 Crore Wednesday

Dabangg 2 grossed around 7.75 crore nett on Wednesday which is an excellent number for Wednesday. If we compare the normal seven day releases the figure is the best ever for a Wednesday. Three Idiots had grossed around 7.50 crore nett and Dabangg around 7 crore nett. The fisrt week will gross around 100 crore nett.

The film has collected 93 crore nett in six days but it shows how important it is for holidays to fall on the right days. If a film is releasing on a national holiday week its a must that holiday is in the first three days preferably first which was not the case with Dabangg 2.

Bodyguard was just over 94 crore nett after six days. Dabangg 2 will sustain very well in week two as the weekday numbers are solid but with film not benefitting a lot from the holiday period, the lifetime collections stay well below Three idiots and Ek tha Tiger.

Vidya Balan, Sridevi: Actresses who made a difference in 2012

It’s a known fact that Sridevi used to have a magical presence on the big screen and her charm remained intact even when she returned after 15 years with English Vinglish.

Bollywood may be considered a male dominated industry by many, but 2012 saw Vidya Balan, Kareena Kapoor and Sridevi becoming the champions of change by carrying films on their more than able shoulders and establishing that actresses are more than just a glamour quotient with the success of their ventures.

Kahaani, featuring Vidya Balan, who had already challenged the male bastion with her 2011 big hit The Dirty Picture, was the first female-centric film of the year that hit the bull’s eye. Continue reading

‘Missing’ Salman Khan finally served summons by cops

Mumbai police claimed they were unable to quickly serve the court notice because they had a hard time tracking Salman down.
It’s taken Mumbai police three weeks to find Bollywood superstar Salman Khan to serve him with a court summons relating to the 2002 hit-and-run case. The show cause notice, issued by a Bandra magistrate’s court on November 30, has only just reached Salman, his lawyer confirmed to NDTV. The notice directs Salman and Inspector Abhay Shastri of the Bandra police station to appear in court on December 27, which is also the actor’s birthday.

The summons were issued after RTI activist Saurabh Daundkar and his lawyer Abha Singh filed a complaint alleging that the Mumbai police faked documents and evidence to help Salman in the 2002 hit-an-run case.

Mumbai police claimed they were unable to quickly serve the court notice because they had a hard time tracking Salman down.

A report in Mid-Day.com says that petitioner Santosh Daundkar met Inspector Shastri on December 24 to find out if the summons had been served and was told by the cop that Salman was not in Mumbai. Continue reading

Salman Khan turns 47: How the loveable ‘Prem’ became ‘Dabangg’ Chulbul Pandey

Some call him ‘enfant terrible’, ‘box-office juggernaut’ and ‘Rajinikanth of Bollywood’, while others deploy epithets like ‘munificent’, ‘unpretentious’ and ‘destiny’s child’ to describe him. Salman Khan is one of the most successful actors, and compelling characters, Bollywood has ever seen. The fact that he is ruling the roost from the last 24 years is a trenchant testament of his longevity, colossal stardom and unswerving popularity.
