Looks Smashing!! Wow
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…)

Thoughts on AR Rahman’s gloriously fun and wholly individual soundtrack for the new Shankar film. You know that familiar Tamil-cinema contrivance where a prisoner in handcuffs is being led away in a police van, and the van stops at a crossing, and the prisoner looks around furtively and sees a chance, and as the cops are looking the other way (or maybe after a scuffle) he slips out and runs into the forest, and he runs and he runs, and then, in a clearing, there’s a conveniently located shack where a sweaty smithy is pounding away on an anvil, and he looks up and sees those handcuffs in front of his nose, and he brings his hammer down and frees the prisoner? That’s the pictureRead more...
