Abhishek, Sonam charm New York
One may have seen Bollywood stars dancing amidst the tulip fields in Holland or singing a song at New York’s Time Square. But do you remember seeing an auto rickshaw or Delhi shops at Times Square? Well, in writer-director Rakyesh Omprakash Mehra’s briskly-paced and often hilarious film Delhi-6, the make-believe world springs up suddenly amidst real-life like stories firmly set in Old Delhi.
In an utterly beguiling scene, the character of Waheeda Rehman suddenly takes ill, and has to be transported to the hospital in an auto rickshaw from her home in a narrow alley in Old Delhi. But a large reverential crowd gathered to see a cow deliver in the middle of a busy street stalls the auto. By the time Roshan (Abhishek Bachchan) disperses the crowd, he cannot find his grandmother. You guessed it — she has not only recovered but has also been inching towards the cow to have the darshan of the holy delivery.
The fertile imagination Mehra and writer-lyricist Prasoon Joshi fill the film with a number of unforgettable incidents. And with an admirable ensemble cast that offers fine performances from Vijay Raaz, the self-important and corrupt police officer, Divya Dutta as the sensuous outcaste and Rishi Kapoor as a lost lover who offers Roshan a few life lessons, Mehra still extracts engaging performances from Abhishek and Sonam Kapoor.
Add to the cast hundreds of pigeons, especially Masakali, that symbolizes the spirit of Bittu (Sonam), and the kala bandar (black monkey) that not only creates havoc and allows religious bigots to rile against the Muslims in the locality but also, ironically, unites the warring Hindus and Muslims in the end.

Mumbai: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is difficult to pin down for an interview; but is always in the news for one reason or another. Here she is, in an interview with entertainment editor of CNN-IBN, Rajeev Masand.
Rajeev Masand: How would you describe the last one year? Approximately this time, last year, Guru had just released and it gave good reviews to the box office and your engagement was announced soon after and there was this world wind of the marriage, lots of travelling, and getting to know the family.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan: It is a very special time. I will cherish 2007 for multiple reasons, more obviously so because Abhishek and I got married and I am very thankful to god. I feel blessed. It is beautiful and super special. (more…)

Raja Natwarlal had poor collections on day one as it collected around 5 crore nett on day one. Mumbai circuit was a bit better as Gujarat and Saurashtra fared better and by far the best collections across India. It was a holiday in Maharashtra and Gujarat and that helped Mumbai circuit compared to rest of India but even with holiday Mumbai can not be called good. The rest of the country was poor with North and Central recording dull collections and also not showing that major jump in the evening shows which was needed.Read more...

Before I go into my views about Ek Villain, I’d like to state that I am a huge fan of “I Saw the Devil (ISTD)” (on which Ek Villain is based) and I consider it a cinematic masterpiece. When I heard that Mohit Suri is making an Indian version of ISTD I was contrastively (9 out of 10 times I hate Indianized version of classics) quite glad and upbeat about it. Reason: From the very first time I watched ISTD, I have always felt that it has a very universal story and despite all the violence its core element: “The story of ultimate pain and suffering and confronting it” is applicable to almost every variety of people. What went unforgivably wrong in Ek Villain isRead more...
