[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…)

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...
Lyon (France): Internationally-renowned Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has been roped in as an ambassador for Interpol’s “Turn Back Crime” campaign to promote awareness on how everyone can play a role in preventing crime. Shah Rukh, said to be the first Indian to be made an ambassador for the global campaign, is lending his voice to help spread the message that all of society benefits when citizens respect law and fight crime. “It’s a very special honour to be a part of Interpol’s ‘Turn Back Crime’ campaign as an ambassador,” said Shah Rukh.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...
