“Holi kab hai. Kab hai HOLI!” by Bandish Soparkar ( Backward Holi Video )

Well, i have to admit, it’s some time a movie/video/scene motivated me to write/post something, but there are moments in life which move you from your work and normal life, and make you notice something extraordinary! and yet funny that you realise yes indeed you are living! ( ya i know i exaggerate at times but being a fan masala movies doesnt help the matter, everything is larger than life ;) ) But on this one seriously I am quite moved at simple innocent colourful fun the short offered me with it’s backward technique! If you thought those mind bending movies/short only can be serious like inception, etc wait till you have seen this :)

I had one such small moment as i was about to crash tonight, when my friend Bandish, send me a link for this short! and i was like what the hell, was that sent for me?? that’s a first! My second reaction was must be some movie trailer/some music video… and as i sleepily awaited buffering, the music caught my attention! which couldnt have been more appropriate… and than began fun magic riot! as the Dhuleti ( holi ) celebration unfolded with a beautiful rainbow coloured girl ( Reema Shah, it was delightful fun to see your expressions ) and the magic of Holi Colours!! The girl had some very pertinent expressions, which drew my attention and along with the crazy fact that i was not knowing what was happening! i was like what the hell, as i was quite sure something Mementosque about this short! My mind was trying to figure the trick! and yet but the sheer enjoyment of colours and fun she was having overcomes my natural human instinct to think/analyse and i enjoyed it! The fact that i was compelled to write, forgetting the fact that i was otherwise sleeping with tensed dreams of an fresh urgent matter, was washed away in the water and colours of this Holi video ( Lord save my client! ) , hopefully suggest others may also like it so sharing it!

Two Thumbs Up! Continue reading

Worth Disappointment. ( Talaash )

I watched Talaash after 3-4 weeks of it’s release yesterday, after knowing the entire suspense, it’s box office no.s and how its a failure according Alex or many other BO people ( for not cracking 100 cr figure ). I was told how it’s Emraan Hasmi Movie or Bhatt kinda flick, how it is disappointing as it deals with Ghost etc.

And then the title credit’s started, as i relaxed in to my cousy lounge seating, and suddenly i saw my part of mumbai where i stayed for 5 years of my life, Churchgate, Fort, Kalaghoda, Colaba, etc. It was interesting to see the lift which i have used since many years, and did so again on my recent visit, to reach my office/residence. Also it evoked quite nostalgia as i saw the late night mumbai which i was habituated with, and the Mayrose Bar, which i know a certain friend frequents ( i am non-alcoholic gujju ) thus i just felt at home, in this part of the world. Through out the movie , i have been to this places day in day out, like the Grant Rd Station, and the people i saw, where the closest i have ever come to see where reality merged with fiction. It was a unique experience as i just felt it was my daily life in mumbai ( late night accidents/incidents/raids etc ) are daily mumbai life. I have to remark here, this set of production values was A class.

The problem the movie possesses for me, that it fails to connect to this viewer, very unlike an Aamir Khan film, which is normally having a good connect, the main core of the movie falls flat, as one has come to expect (promotions for once misguided) a suspense drama film, instead we are looking at the problem of father failing to coming terms with his son’s loss. Remind’s me of Aamir Khan’s dialogue from RDB, of placing one leg in past and one in future …. and as such clearly director fails to remain faithful to either.

The Acting, is top class, and it salvages the movie, special Kudos to Aamir Khan, who gives a top drawer performance in this messy affair, which is prima facie a film, that i feel Ladies shall like more! Acting all over is good, but the script is a big let down, a rare thing for a Aamir Film. Continue reading

Talaash: This is serious business

Talaash: This is serious business
December 3, 2012

Talaash demands big efforts from the cast and they deliver. PHOTO: PUBLICITY
Talaash, as the name suggests, is a film in which people are looking for answers. It has some obvious searches like why did the car end up in water? Who is the killer?

And then there are the subtly and beautifully embedded intrinsic quests of a father in search of reconciliation with himself, not really by self-flagellation but by being silent. Or a wife in search of her husband whom she lost to a tragic accident in their lives.

I am disappointed in myself, because it took me over an hour to realise where I had seen Talaash before.

I hadn’t seen it before, I had read it. Continue reading

Top ALL TIME Openings: Talaash Tops For Aamir Khan

note:I guess star power in today’s day is all about weekend opening a star can give. And imo below if taken at face value shows Aamir is clearly no. 1.
1) All other seven movies are mass movies.
2) All other movies are holiday release maybe with exception of Rowdy Rathore.
3) Difference between Rowdy and Talaash = 2.5-3 cr.
4) All other movies were heavily promoted.

Enuf Said!

Talaash is the 8th highest opening of all time. The film is Aamir Khan’s biggest opening, it may not be his biggest opening day but a day depends on holiday while three days even things out so is a better judge of opening numbers The top fifteen opening weekends in the history of Hindi film industry in terms of nett collections are listed below.

1. Ek Tha Tiger – 56.11 crore Continue reading

21-year-old girl arrested for Facebook post slamming Bal Thackeray

Police on Sunday arrested a 21-year-old girl for questioning the total shutdown in the city for Bal Thackeray’s funeral on her Facebook account.

Another girl who ‘liked’ the comment was also arrested.

The duo were booked under Section 295 (a) of the IPC (for hurting religious sentiments ) and Section 64 (a) of the Information Technology Act, 2000. Though the girl withdrew her comment and apologized, a mob of some 2,000 Shiv Sena workers attacked and ransacked her uncle’s orthopaedic clinic at Palghar, north of Mumbai.

The 21-year-old arrested for her Facebook post was among many who aired opinions on social networking sites. Continue reading

Why I can’t pay tribute to Thackeray – Hon’ble Justice Katju (Retired Judge, Apex Court)

Rangan on JTHJ

Baradwaj Rangan, on JTHJ.

At first, we think it’s empty hero-giri. Samar (Shah Rukh Khan), a classic loner, is not with the others of his bomb-defusing team, one of whom struggles to make sense of the tangle of wires in an explosive device at a Leh marketplace. Samar rides in on his motorbike alone, a little later, and when he gets to work, an onlooker remarks that he will not wear a bomb suit. After all, he hasn’t worn one while defusing close to 100 bombs thus far – a record, which fetches him the title The Man who Cannot Die. More remarks follow that build Samar up, in our eyes, as some sort of outrageous superhero. The onlooker says, “Iski aankhon mein aaj tak maut ka dar nahin dekha,” that he’s never seen in Samar’s eyes the fear of death, and he adds that Samar walks up to explosive devices as if walking into a girlfriend’s arms. It all seems to be little but empty hero-giri, the kind of image-stoking, ego-massaging scenario that every big star writes into his contract.

But slowly we see that Samar is no reckless hero, that he has a death wish, that he’s really The Man who Wants to Die. For love, naturally. Yash Chopra’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan (co-written by Aditya Chopra) is something of a companion piece to Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (which the younger Chopra directed). Here too, we’re treated to two flavours of Shah Rukh Khan – one silent and withdrawn, one the exuberant embodiment of life itself. Here too, we have Anushka Sharma, playing a Discovery Channel filmmaker named Akira, torn between these two personas – except that, this time, she falls for the introvert. And here too, the big guy up in the sky plays a pivotal part. This time, though, it’s a different god, one who hangs on a crucifix and whom Samar refers to as Sir Jesus. In other words, we’re watching Christ Ne Bana Di Jodi, which could be the title of the translation of Graham Greene’s novel The End of the Affair.

A O Scott on CLOUD ATLAS

A O Scott

You see what I mean about quantity. Simply enumerating the rest of the cast members and saying what they do would turn this review into a Domesday Book of postmodern film acting. And identifying the flavors of ham they import to the proceedings would require an advanced degree in charcuterie. There is, in any case, a lot of acting here. It is delivered by the bushel, by the truckload, by the schooner, and the quality varies.
