All clear for SRK Express

Ekta revises Once Upon A Time- 2 release date to Aug 15, avoids much-anticipated Eid clash.

On March 7, on the set of Chennai Express in Wai, Shah Rukh Khan had asked his team to “Get ready for Eid.” The formal announcement of the release date (August 8) had created quite a flutter in the industry, with filmmakers either making way for the Rohit Shetty juggernaut or, as in the case of Ekta Kapoor, deciding to take the challenge head on with Once Upon a Time in Mumbai, Dobara.

Nearly three months, many meetings and much deliberation later, Ekta has decided to shift the release date of her ambitious film. It will now release a week later, on Independence Day. OUATIM – Again, is likely to rub shoulders with Subhash Ghai’s Kaanchi.

Insiders say Ekta finally paid heed to her well wishers, who reasoned that the films could eat into each other’s profit, and decided to give the two films enough space to reach out to their respective audiences.

Sources close to Balaji say, a representation was made from the makers and stake holders of Chennai Express to Jeetendra, requesting him to reconsider the release date in the interest of both the films. Continue reading

A year after, Akshay’s fortunes soar; Khiladi 786 to open well at the Box Ofiice

A year after, Akshay’s fortunes soar; Khiladi 786 to open well at the Box Ofiice
6 December 2012 , By Joginder Tuteja
How fortunes turn around in a matter of one year! A little over a year ago when Akshay Kumar’s Desi Boyz had released, the film was being looked at with hawk’s eye. Thank You and Patiala House, his two earlier releases in the year, hadn’t quite set the box office on fire and subsequently even Desi Boyz suffered when the film took just about decent opening of around 28 crore. The baggage of earlier films did have an impact on the fortunes of Desi Boyz and the very fact that the film didn’t quite cover much distance resulted in Akshay Kumar ending 2011 on an average note.

The reverse is all set to happen for him as 2012 comes to a close.

His Khiladi 786 is arriving with an air of positivism around it. He has already delivered two 100 crore successes (Rowdy Rathore, Housefull 2), his production OMG Oh My God! has been a respectable critical as well as commercial super success and the only commercial downer has been Joker which he stayed away from. Trade, industry as well as audience are hot on his co-production with Himesh Reshammiya which also benefits from the fact that the composer has given numerous chartbusters already. The film’s ‘masala’ look and feel has further made sure that there is a success in the offering.

All of this means that the film is all set to embark on a very good start. Since the film’s release is very extensive, even a 60%-70% all-India start is good enough to ensure a weekend of minimum 40 crores for the film. While Rowdy Rathore, his last biggie, had scored higher, it was also a much expensive film. However for Khiladi 786, this would be a good total with a major chunk of moolah expected from the single screens. Expect the film to fetch better response here with an even higher occupancy.

Review: Talaash (2.5/5)

Cast: Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Rani Mukherji, Nawazudin Siqqiui, Shernaz Patel, Rajkumar Yadav

Director: Reema Kagti

Indian Express Rating: **1/2

The first half of ‘Talaash’ is good enough for you not to want to blink. The atmospheric thriller, top lining an angst-ridden cop, his hollow-eyed sad sack of a wife and a stunning street-walker, has you hooked right from its lovely opening credits. In short order,all the right ingredients arrive :an accidental death, promising sub-plots, and dodgy characters, and it all starts to swing. Post-interval, though, the tale-telling starts to stutter, the pace slackens, and the film becomes less than the zinger it set out to be.

As Surjan Shekhawat (Khan) delves deeper into a Bollywood star’s mysterious death-by-drowning, it is clear that he’s going down the path where appearances will be deceptive. His search leads him to a red- light area, sleazy pimps, haggard hookers and bags full of blackmail money. Continue reading

Single Screens And Mass Belts Low For Talaash

Talaash could not open well at single screens and multiplexes in mass dominated circuits and there was not much improvement in the shows after. The multiplexes are in urban cities are good but eventually there is a limit to how far these cinema’s can take a film. The single screen opening is around 40%.

The first day will come out with a decent total but not the sort of number expected from a wide release Aamir Khan film after three years. The average business in many circuits will tell on the first day business despite big contribution’s by metro multiplexes.

The business in the big circuits (Mumbai and Delhi/UP) is not optimum as if Mumbai city has good numbers, Gujarat has low figures. If Delhi city is good, UP is recording low numbers.

TALAASH Is Unoriginal Boring Film


Aamir Khan delivers fantastic performance as always, direction is tight and background score is super, Kareena Kapoor at her best and so is Rani, Nawazuddin and Rajkumar are good in supporting roles


3rd rate copied script from Hollywood classics, bad screenplay and even worse lighting, songs does not add anything to the film

Critic Rating:
3/5 Continue reading

Talaash: Searching for the perfect whodunit

The worst thing to happen while watching a murder mystery is someone telling you the twist in the tale even before the movie began. The second-worst thing is when you figure out the twist yourself, halfway through the film.

Call it a result of watching too many whodunits as a kid, but the twist in Reema Kagti’s “Talaash” was apparent an hour before it ended. After that it was just a matter of waiting to see how it plays out. No surprises there either. Kagti makes a stylised film, a murder mystery that also has an emotional undercurrent and borrows strongly from well-known Hollywood films of the genre (I won’t say which ones for fear of revealing the plot).

Aamir Khan plays troubled police inspector Surjan Singh Shekhawat, who moves to Mumbai after his son’s death in a freak boating accident. Wracked by guilt, he roams the streets of the city that never sleeps at night, leaving his wife Roshni (Rani Mukerji) to deal with the tragedy on her own.

Shekhawat is assigned the case of Armaan Kapoor, an actor who dies after driving his car into the Arabian Sea. Continue reading

Review: Talaash is a mild-goose chase (2.5/5)

Make no mistake, Talaash is a Vikram Bhatt film.

Which isn’t to say Bhatt actually made it (though he or Mohit Suri or Pooja Bhatt may well have at some point, who dare keep count) but that it has a story built on the exact same pulpy foundations. Just yank out the invariably catchy Pritam soundtrack, replace Emraan Hashmi or Randeep Hooda with Aamir Khan and throw in major heroines where Vishesh Films would have cast unfamiliar models. (The only key character in Talaash who isn’t a top actor is, actually, the one who plays a top actor.)

To give credit where due, director Reema Kagti and her crew show significant flair in terms of creating atmosphere. Cinematographer Mohanan has always dealt strikingly well with shadows and darkness, and the film emerges as a fine looking mood-piece. It’s a somber, well-assembled film in contrast to the quick and flashy schlock that would have been doled out by the aforementioned merchants of middlebrow masala, and while the film’s craft — and the acting chops shared by its considerable cast — can’t at all be denied, it must also be said that perhaps the trashier approach may have worked better for this material. Or, at the very least, made for more fun.

Allow me to make my case, then, without once discussing the film’s plot. No spoilers here, folks.

There are a few essentials for a police procedural film, all rather basic: either the crime should be a stupefying one, one which raises many a “how in the world” question and flummoxes audience and investigator; or the suspects should be interesting and complex, those whose motivations become clearer only when the film gets less murky; or the investigator himself should be a compelling protagonist, someone who makes you either care about himself or the case, ideally rooting for his success. And if all else fails, then it should be thrilling enough to hide the lack of the above. Continue reading

Salman Khan is like my big brother, says Katrina Kaif

Katrina Kaif created quite a stir in Kolkata on Saturday. Not only was she looking gorgeous in her desi avataar in a chiffon sari – a typical Yash Raj heroine, she also made everyone’s jaws drop when she claimed: “Salman is like my big brother”.

The leading cast of Yash Raj film ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ had descended in Kolkata on Saturday to inaugurate the Kolkata International Film Festival.

Shah Rukh Khan, who is the brand ambassador of West Bengal and also owns the state’s IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders, was also at the event to inaugurate the festival. Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan was also present during the ceremony.

But Katrina managed to steal the thunder despite the presence of stalwarts like Amitabh, Shah Rukh and even the chief minister of West Bengal Mamata Banerjee, who is known for sensational quotes. Continue reading

CCI rejects Devgn’s allegation of YRF abusing dominant position

The Competition Commission of India (CCI) has rejected the plea of actor-producer Ajay Devgn against Yash Raj Films (YRF) for their alleged abuse of dominant position ahead of release of Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Jab Tak Hai Jaan (JTHJ).

Devgn alleged that YRF was abusing its dominant position and was asking exhibitors to provide more screens to their release than for his film Son of Sardaar.

Both the films will be released this Diwali, November 13, 2012.

“We considered the plea application. We have not found any merit in the case as there is no case of abuse of dominant position. This is a case of first comer. That can not be held against them (YRF). Hence there is no violation of Section 3 of the Competition Act,” an official source told the Indian Express. The orders for the same will be issued soon, the official said. Continue reading
