  • SRK fans Please enlighten us how is this possible??

    Usually I don’t bother writing this kinda articles. But today after reading BOI’s verdict for JTHJ  I could not restrain myself. So here goes- (From BOI- Jab Tak Hai Jaan has grossed 91 crore after ten days and has done well at multiplexes. As with films like Ra.One and Don 2 the final business will not be as much as SRK starrers should be doing in the domestic market especially as holiday releases but the difference here is that its not a big budget venture. Although it was one of the event films of 2012 the costs involved are more on the lines of a Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Student Of The Year rather than a Don 2 or Ek Tha Tiger. SUPER HIT) Can BOI

  • ETT Pegged As Biggest First-Day Grosser At 30 Cr

    Yash Raj-Salman Khan Ek Tha Tiger (ETT) is all that it was billed to be – on opening day, at least. The film, which took a phenomenal 100-per cent opening across India, is expected to break records and become the highest first-day grosser at Rs 30 crore. Salman Khan has always had tremendous success at the ticket counter during Eid, and today being a national holiday helped considerably. Tradewallahs believe the film will clock the fastest Rs 100 crore in the history of Indian cinema. In Mumbai, Vinay Choksey of VIP Enterprises says, “In Mumbai, the response to the film has been astonishing. The first-day collections will be around Rs 30 crore all-India and Rs 11 crore in Mumbai. The film benefited from the national holiday today

  • Ek Tha Tiger Review- Tiger Tiger Tiger… Kahani BLOCKBUSTER Hai… !!!!

    (Ticket Booking- All morning shows are full 2 days in advance in my city. Got last 2 very front row tickets.) Story- Story of the film is not a path breaking instead its very simple and straight forward. The best agent of a secret service falls in love with a girl and wants to run away from his spy life. Execution- All praise should go to Kabir Khan for this. Story like ETT, though looks simple on a paper, is harder to execute in front of camera. The key part in a screenplay is always going to be the love story part and success of the screenplay going to be hinged upon the way Kabir blends love story in an action film. (And to be

  • THEW14.COM MOVIE REVIEW BY MAYANK SHEKHAR: EK THA TIGER

    RAW, smokin’ Salman with cheese! Ek Tha Tiger Director: Kabir Khan Actors: Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif Reviewing a Salman Khan film is like ironing a pair of jeans: what’s the point. People will go, watch it anyway. Filmmakers know this. Having signed up the super-star lately, they’ve been left with precious little to do besides cash in on a supposed ‘Sal-mania’. The character isn’t important. The audience believes Salman is a character himself. They react to him. They know, as in this case, Katrina Kaif is his ex. She talks about him not being married yet. Audience laughs. Any rubbish remake (Bodyguard, Ready) could have sufficed. Ek Tha Tiger, directed by Kabir Khan (Kabul Express, New York), in that sense, is an immensely worthy exception.

  • Ek Tha Tiger… First Hand Review..

    Watching ETT now in my city… First half is over…. So few points about First Half… Full Review Coming soon… Adrenaline filled atmosphere starts from inisial credit rolling with Tiger theme playing in background. Opening scene shows some kickass chess scene which is on par with some hollywood scenes.. Love story part is handled very well in brief without compromising the theme of the movie (Action Thriller). Kudos to Kabir for that.

  • Shahid in Wanted 2?

    WHAT THE HELL IS THIS??   Buzz is that Prabhu Deva plans to make the sequel to the Salman Khan starrer Wanted with Shahid Kapoor.  Sources reveal that Khan has given his blessings to Prabhu and asked him to go ahead with the project. The film will showcase Shahid in a totally different look and have him do high-octane action films. “Prabhu and Shahid have met and they are quite excited about the chance of working together. Shaks is a huge fan of the choreographer turned director and has asked him to get the script in place as soon as possible.”

  • My Thoughts on THE AVENGERS – (can a superhero movie get better than this?)

        It is difficult to handle 2 lead characters in a movie,( just have a look at bollywood multi-starrers for example) so how can someone manage to assemble not two, not three, total six lead characters and that too Superheroes in a single movie and hope for success??? Director Joss Whedon not only manages but does it so brilliantly. ‘The Avengers’ starts with very unconventional way- at least for a superhero movie- with slow pace, building a plot brick by brick,  introducing all characters simplistic way. There is not much over-the-top action in first half(that’s being more than compensated in last half). What keeps audiences interested in first half is strong performance of leads (especially Robert D Junior), lots of humor, and anticipation of

  • The Legend Of THE WALL

      This day I would never forget. Rahul Dravid is going to retire is what I was hearing, reading, seeing since yesterday. But I did not want to believe it. My mind was saying ‘yes! This is probably right’ but my heart just could not bear the possibility of not having Dravid around playing, fighting, winning and saving test matches for India. So I was eagerly waiting for today’s press conference, hoping against hope that this conference might be for some different reasons (though my brain couldn’t think of any). But that was not to be the case and Dravid indeed announced his retirement today.

  • My Journey from passive reader to active member on NG !!!

    From the day I got posting rights I was thinking of writing this post,but somehow it was getting postponed.  So, finally decided to sit tight and finish writing this post. I came across this forum naachgaana.com about two years back. And to be frank I did not visit it again for almost 3 months. Then came Dabangg and that hurricane took not only whole film industry but also me with it. Those were the days I was surfing the net madly to absorb each and any news related to the film. And what could be the site other than NG would have offered me such information in one place? So that’s when I became a regular reader of the NG. Though I was regular visitor,

  • My thoughts on AGNEEPATH…

    ****Spoilers**** (Read only if you are the one who have watched the movie or you are the one who don’t mind if someone spoils your party. :))   If say, somehow I did not happen to know that this AGNEEPATH movie is actually a remake of old movie of 1980s, I would have guessed it perfectly right after the end of climax fight sequence. Such are the scenes in this movie that follow exact same path of old 1980s movies. Movie starts in a village ‘Mandawa’ showing Vijay’s (Hrithik Roshan) childhood life and his relation with his father and how main villain Kaancha (Sanjay Dutt) murders his father. This part is actually well executed and builds the platform for revenge perfectly.

  • Shala Movie Review: Reliving School Days

    Shala(School), the film, is about the experience of falling in love for the very first time at a tender age. It is set in the 70s when every other school wasn’t ‘international’ and they worked perfectly fine without the students having i-pads or any such fancy gadgets. It is also a coming of age story of four adolescents who are best of friends but are unaware of what turn their life will take at the end of the academic year of their school. Mind you, it is not a ‘children’s film’ but a ‘film on children’ which explores their psychology and behavior.   The adolescent love angle has been dealt with a very delicate hand. The performances by the leads go a long way in
