By Taran Adarsh, 1 Feb 2013, 10:28 hrs ISTBejoy Nambiar picks unconventional options. In SHAITAN, his directorial debut, he chose relative newcomers [with the sole exception of Rajeev Khandelwal] to relate the story of well-heeled kids, belonging to the upper crust, who get implicated in a botched crime and how it pushes them to commit several lawbreaking acts.
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. (more…)
CBI has ordered the makers to hold a special screening of the film to check if it has been showed in poor light.Akshay Kumar’s Special Chabbis, helmed by Neeraj Pandey, is based on a real-life incident that involves depicting the Central Bureau of Investigation as part of the storyline. Now, the investigating agency has ordered the makers to hold a special screening of the film to check if it has been showed in poor light.
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.” (more…)

P.K. is the story of a chronic alcoholic whose memory is wiped clean in a freak accident. With absolutely no recollection of his past or the ways of the world, the protagonist’s only support remains his bottle of alcohol. (more…)

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. (more…)

Thoughts on AR Rahman’s gloriously fun and wholly individual soundtrack for the new Shankar film. You know that familiar Tamil-cinema contrivance where a prisoner in handcuffs is being led away in a police van, and the van stops at a crossing, and the prisoner looks around furtively and sees a chance, and as the cops are looking the other way (or maybe after a scuffle) he slips out and runs into the forest, and he runs and he runs, and then, in a clearing, there’s a conveniently located shack where a sweaty smithy is pounding away on an anvil, and he looks up and sees those handcuffs in front of his nose, and he brings his hammer down and frees the prisoner? That’s the pictureRead more...
