In DAVID, Bejoy’s second outing, he introduces us to three Davids. Dwelling in three different places. In three different eras. But the characters aren’t linked to each other, though these characters do connect towards the film’s resolution. Given the genre of the film, one would expect DAVID to hurl a lot of shockers at you. Sadly, it doesn’t. Sure, the tone of the sequences alters constantly, from passion to angst to apprehension to conflict to retribution to vindication, but the film fails to involve you completely. What comes across on screen is inconsistent.
The film is based on a jewellery heist in 1983 Mumbai, where con men posing as CBI officials robbed stores of crores of rupees. While Manoj Bajpayee plays a CBI official, Akshay Kumar essays the role of a fake officer.
A source said, “Given the circumstances these days, no one associated with film projects want to take even the minutest risk of being misrepresented. Everyone wants to make sure they are presented in good light and their sentiments are not hurt. No wonder that even the CBI wants to see the film before its scheduled release.”

The ‘face’ of 2002 post-Godhra riots, Qutubuddin Ansari is seeking financial damages from the makers of film Rajdhani Express for “illegally” using his photo and causing him and his family “mental trauma”.
“We have sent a legal notice to the producer and principal director of the film for using the photo of my client (Ansari), which was taken during the 2002 riots, in a demeaning way causing mental trauma to him and his family,” said advocate Amit Nair, who is representing Ansari in the matter. Ansari’s photograph pleading security forces with folded hands and teary eyes during the post-Godhra riots had not only gone viral in 2002, it also became the face and symbol of the ghastly incidence. Tired of being projected as the victim of riots, Ansari, who has settled down in his life doing tailoring work, has sought damages worth Rs 25 lakh from the makers of the film.
Film Rajdhani Express, with which tennis star Leander Paes made his debut, is a suspense thriller and was released on January 4 this year.

Easily the best film of 2013, VISHWAROOP is shocking, thrilling and insightful. Its far from perfect film, not even close to it, but it has lot more to serve. The plot of the film is interesting, although executed in very cinematic format, and the story is well penned. VISHWAROOP also taps heroism like many Hindi films based on terrorism, but with strong support of story.

Hyderabad: Several film star across India have voiced their support to Kamal Hassan and condemned the Tamil Nadu Government’s action of banning the controversial movie Vishwaroopam. Ace Telugu director SS Rajamouli is one such celebrities, who is very upset with government’s decision. He says that there is nothing that hurts the sentiments of Muslim. He says that instead of supporting artistes, the government has banned the movie screening, which is shocking.
After watching Vishwaroopam on January 25, SS Rajamouli took to his Twitter page and wrote, “Usually all commercial films have black and white characters and complex characters are for parallel films. Vishwaroopam is the first Pakka Commercial film that I know which has complex characters which was refreshin 2watch. Kamal’s performance as the dance master is extraordinary. Makeup and spl efx are top notch. i would have preffered a little less gore, but that is personal taste.”
Meanwhile, SS Rajamouli also expressed his disappointment over TN Government’s action. He tweeted, “And tamilnadu govt banning the film is quite shocking. Govt advocate stating that there will be wide spread violence is the home of the year. There’s nothing in the film that Hurts the sentiments of the Muslims. Hope the good sense prevails. And wish the producers somehow recover the money that has been lost.”
On January 26, SS Rajamouli once again took to his Twitter page and hurled his anger against government. He tweeted, “Initially i was outraged along with the film fraternity at the atrocity of banning #vishwaroobam stating “it hurts the sentiments of the Muslims.” Which part hurts the Muslims? Showing talibans in bad light?? Now is the govt implying that the Indian Muslims support talibans? Isn’t that insulting the Muslims of this country??”
