Actors don’t do movies to break records: Salman Khan

Meena Iyer, TNN | Jul 29, 2012, 12.00AM IST

At a suburban studio; between takes, Salman Khan sits outside his vanity van, surrounded by his in-house doctor, some members of the cine artistes association and his own team.

Bhai, as he is fondly referred to by most people, is organising an eye-camp for the less privileged in Bollywood. Once he has wrapped that, he takes a short break to talk to TOI. Excerpts:

The box office expectation from your latest film is so humungous that no other filmmaker wishes torelease his film around that time!
Well, it should be. It’s the coming together of two big brands — Salman Khan and Yash Chopra. So naturally the expectations are bound to be high. But that is not something I orchestrated. It is something that the trade is expecting. I only set out to make a good film. On second thoughts, our industry needs more money yaar. Now the government has decided to burden us with a 12.5 per cent service tax! It’s crazy the way this business functions.

Will the Bodyguard figures be toppled this August?
Actors don’t do movies to break records. The idea is always to make a film with utmost sincerity. Records get made and broken because of statistics. The numbers of theatres that play Bollywood movies globally have increased; the release of films is now very wide. Naturally the returns have increased. Frankly from now on, I want all films to start crossing the ` 200 cr mark. I was sitting with some members of the junior artistes association today and I was sad to hear that many junior artistes and technicians in the industry still don’t have money to pay for their medical needs and basic amenities. I hope all our movies make enough to at least provide these guys with a
decent livelihood. Continue reading

My Take on Cocktail (Naveed)

Many were of the opinion that Imtiaz Ali’s new offering seemed similar to his Love Aaj Kal but here Imtiaz Ali has only lent his services as a writer. The writing and the performances of all three protagonists are the ONLY highlight of this rather ‘aimless’ film which really does towards its conclusion tests one’s resolve in remaining in their seat.

I watched the film last night with three friends and to be honest none of us were expecting much infact I had zero expectations as I have not followed the film (as I do with other films namely Salman films) except the first trailer and the popular Tum Hi Bandhu song. The film can easily pass of as a love triangle, or be termed as a rom com but I think the makers of the film want to ask us the audience a question, ‘can a boy and a girl ever be friends??

The film starts off with Gautam Kapoor (Saif Ali Khan) on a flight to London. Here we have Gautam flirting with the air hostess using the cheesiest of lines that it would put all the rude boys in Hackney to shame. The air hostess then lets us all know that this is the first time she has ever behaved ‘unprofessionally’ yeah we believe you love. This chain of events repeats itself another hundred times proving to us that Gautam can bag any girl within seconds and forget getting a date their ready to jump in the sack with him. Forget Love Guru from Partner this Dude from Cocktail IS THE MAN. We all have to start somewhere to be good in anything in life and the same rules also apply to Gautam so welcome Mr Boman Irani. He plays the uncle of Saif in the film and can I just say that whenever both were on screen they provided great laughs especially in the first half. Boman is the OAP version of the senior Saif who jokingly reminds Saif on the way to the airport that he must never reveal his secrets of straying and playing away.

To cut the story short Saif’s eyes fall on Meera (Diana Penty) and our hero Saif tries to woo her with the a line which I have memorised to use next time am on the pull. It’s so bad it’s actually hilarious and these were the moments which the audience laughed to. Meera is searching for her husband (Randeep Hooda) who wants absolutely nothing to do with her so here we have a desi girl in a world unknown to her. Veronica (Deepika Padukone) then arrives with a bang and she is poles apart from Diana Penty as clearly shown in the trailers. She is a carefree girl who loves to drink and party and lives life to the max not caring about tomorrow. The film is a love triangle with elements of Love Aaj Kal, KKHH, HDJPK and dozens of other films with a slight ‘modern’ touch. Continue reading
