Highest Earning Stars in Bollywood
Forbes India recently released the ‘Celebrity 100? list. Along with it, they also released an estimation of how much a particular celebrity earned in the period between October 2011 and September 2012.
It was Shahrukh Khan, with 23 brand endorsements, who topped the Highest Earning stars list with Rs 202.83 crores in a year. SRK was followed by Akshay Kumar (179.95 crores), Salman Khan (144.2 crores), cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni (135.16 crores) and Amitabh Bachchan (116.3 crores).
In an exclusive interview to Indian Express, producer-director Rakesh Roshan has revealed that his ambitious superhero film Krrish 3 has a runtime of 2 and a half hours and the film will have only 3 songs.
During the release of their last production venture Kites, Hrithik Roshan had openly spoken against song and dance numbers. Not including lip-sync songs, we believe, would be a good move for a film like Krrish 3.
Excerpts from the interview with Priyanka Sinha Jha.
The good part is that in Krrish 3, I don’t have to establish the character. I already did that in the first two parts (Koi Mil Gaya and Krrish). Hrithik is playing both father and son, and looks like a different person for each character. The shot division becomes very difficult as a result of this – I have to do all the shots of the older character first and the young one’s later. A make-up artist has been flown in from London. The film’s duration is about two and a half hour and it has only three songs. I have knowingly put in elements, which a younger generation will understand.
Neeraj Pandey returns back to the directorial position with SPECIAL 26,after delivering the much acclaimed and a good Box Office success “A WEDNESDAY”. SPECIAL 26 stars Anupam Kher, Kajal Agarwal, Akshay Kumar, Jimmy Shergil and Manoj Bajpai. Slated to release …
There’s absolutely no iota of doubt that the new-age directors are coming up with some brilliant concepts and ideas. However, translating them into celluloid can prove to be a tad risky affair. After all, it’s cinema. A film can have one positives but handful of minuses can lead to a film’s downfall. David falls in this category. The film is aided with a very impressive idea of three men, all named David, based in three different eras and how their lives change and even interlink, coincidentally all on the same date of their respective eras – March 3! Director Bejoy Nambiar also throws in some well-sketched characters and different colour tones for each track. However, a film of this type and style ought to be taut and pacy and definitely not lethargic. David, that’s almost 155 minutes long, therefore fails to create much of an impact.
The story of the movie: 1975 London: David (Neil Nitin Mukesh) is a fiercely loyal to his master, Iqbal Ghani (Akash Khurana), a dreaded mafia, and in love with the rebellious Noor (Monica Dogra). Officials from the Indian government are sent to eliminate Ghani and they decide to use David and the secrets of his bloodline to set their plan in motion.
1999 Mumbai: David (Vinay Virmani) is a happy-go-lucky youth who loves to play guitar and even give lessons. He doesn’t share a cordial relation with his dad, Father Noel (Nasser) but decides to fight for him when he’s needlessly dragged into a political issue by Malati Tai (Rohini Hattangadi).
2010 Goa: David (Chiyaan Vikram) is a fisherman who is addicted to his drink. His mother wants him to tie the knot but he’s least interested, until he comes across Roma (Isha Sharvani), a deaf and mute girl. He soon realizes that he’s in love but there’s a hitch, a big one that too.
Here’s the thread for February, 2013. Please post all the movies you watched this month (as the month passes)
Until now, I have seen 3 movies and here they are:
1) Hulla (2008)- I saw Cr7 mentioning this movie and I remembered watching the first 20 minutes an year back or so and hence decided to check it out again. The plot of the film is very, very simple. A middle class Mumbai couple moves into an new apartment and the husband starts getting disturbed with the whistling by the watchman every night. Its fascinating how Jaideep Verma actually made a movie on such a simple topic. The plot of the movie is just an outline of the movie is about. The real picture is about how small things can affect us and how easy it is to ignore them or endorse them. Sushant Singh plays the irritated man who is just not able to sleep because of the noise and how he makes it such an important issue in his life. You will get the bigger picture once you checkout the film. The Parallel track of Rajat Kapoor as strict Secretary is equally interesting. In fact on careful observation one may understand that how the movie is about two people and an issue. The issue which is the most important problem in one’s life and the same issue is the only acheivment of someone else’s life. The issue which in essence is trivial but becomes a point that has to be made for both the parties. The music by Indian Ocean is simply outstanding. Check it out on a Sunday noon and you won’t regret it.
Hulla – 7 on 10
