[Thanks to GF for pointing me to this trailer. It's a good trailer â€” the opening shots impart a touch of Hephaestus to Kamal working in his subterranean lairâ€¦couldnâ€™t help but smile at that English accent, that is vintage Kamal ha ha ha. Lal as expected underplays the role relative to Kher â€” thereâ€™s a certain world-weariness to this character, and at times I felt Kher seemed a bit too fresh in â€œA Wednesday" -- Qalandar]
Kazuaki Kiriya is someone I had not even heard of until I saw his latest movie – Goemon’s – trailer. Kiriya previously famous for music videos had turned film maker with the sci-fi film ‘Casshern‘, a blend of Japanese manga and super-imposition chroma key technique (like Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow & 300). Itâ€™s been almost two years since that and now the first full length trailer (only Japanese) is out and this looks lot better and nastier then â€˜Casshernâ€™. This time around it looks like a mix of Chinese wi-fu (like Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon) and epic saga (like Lord of the Rings).
Goemon is a ninja bandit with super human abilities, who steals from the rich and feeds the poor (ala Robin Hood). Goemon finds a mysterious box which is a relic fom the past containing untold powers. He needs to protect this from the other characters in the movie who desire to possess the box for their own ulterior motives. (more…)

NG All Stars
Dear Members and Visitors, We are back. After a few months of inactivity and bad design (both which I take great responsibility for), I have redone NG from scratch so goes back to being the BEST Bollywood/Indian film experience ever. NG has been through a lot yet we keep on going while others seem to give up or vanish completely. Our resilience is our trademark and this says more about you, the member – the visitor – than about a blog or me. I have tried to do my part by fixing many of the mistakes of the past in this new kind of NG. I hope this iteration brings everyone a new jot – with old friends and new faces – as we allRead more...
Movie: Mardaani Direct: Pradeep Sarkar Cast: Rani Mukherjee and Tahir Bhasin Writing review after many months. Have watched quite a movies, mostly on small screen and very few on big. Never wrote in more than 4 lines comment about a movie. But this particular movie “Mardaani” made me to write a short review and share my views so that people could not know about it, at least whoever reads this. Movie is about crime branch inspector Shivani Roy (Rani Mukerji). She is in pursuit of an adopted girl. The early signs showed a simple kidnapping but further investigation reveals abduction by a drug and human trafficking syndicate, comprising of various politicians and gang leaders, the most fierce being Karan or Walt played by Tahir Bhasin.Read more...
After Humshakals was criticised by viewers and critics, actor Saif Ali Khan too trashed the film, saying it was regressive and he regretted being a part of it and underestimating his audience’s intelligence. But how difficult is it for a director to stand by his own project, when the lead actor slams it by saying the film didn’t have a script to begin with? Director Teja, who has worked in Tollywood and Bollywood and directed films like Nuvvu Nenu, Jai and Nijam, feels that it is unfair of any actor to wash his hands off a project when it has failed. “And in Saif’s case, he had a triple role in the film and he practically occupied 80 per cent of the screen space.
