R.I.P. Manohari Singh

Saxophonist Manohari Singh passed away on July 13th of cardiac arrest. He appeared on Indian Idol a couple weeks ago with Asha Bhosle, where she stated that Manohari was R.D. Burman's right hand. He was with Burman from his first song to his death. He seemed healthy and gave amazing performances on Indian Idol. Just a few weeks later, he passed away at the age of 79. R.I.P Manohari Singh.

Milenge Milenge Trailer

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iUBxbcwTlLs&feature=related
I cannot embed it, but check it out! The movie that we've been waiting for is about to come in theaters. This is the movie that Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor broke up during, and so the film was on hold for a few years. The trailers show Kareena before her size 0 image with the straight, long hair and Shahid before his muscular, more mature look with the long hair (and then short hair again). Now my question is: how much of the film was shot before the break up? Is there a gap in the movie of a few years so the new looks are of older people? Or do they give Shahid and Kareena makeovers to make them look younger and closer to how they did when the movie started to just continue the film from where it left off? I guess we'll have to wait and watch...

RIP Mac Mohan

Mac Mohan, best known as Sambha from Sholay, passed away earlier today. We will all surely miss him.


Article:

One of the evergreen dialogues that has made and shaped Bollywood as to what it is today happens to be 'Arre O Sambha...Kitne aadmi the'... from the evergreen cult film Sholay. The irony of life is that while this dialogue happens to be immortal, the mortal 'Sambha' in question, passed away yesterday, as he lost his battle to the dreaded cancer.

Mohan and he remained famous for his most stylish beard even then. Having started his 'Bollywood ka safar' with the film Haqeeqat in the year 1964, Mac Mohan acted in over 190 films over a period of a whopping 46 years.

Some of the most prominent films in which he acted include Don, Sholay, Karz, Satte Pe Satta, Zanjeer, Rafoo Chakkar, Shaan... to name a few. His last film was Bombay To Goa: Laughter Unlimited, and he also did a cameo after that in Luck By Chance. Very few people know the fact that, besides being one of the finest actors, Mac Mohan also happens to be the maternal uncle of Raveena Tandon.

Housefull Review


Powered by: Chakpak.com House Full


The makers of Heyy Babyy brought us Housefull. Ritesh Deshmukh, Akshay Kumar, and Boman Irani are together again! The story is of a man, Akshay Kumar, who is unlucky for everyone he is around, including himself. He was once told though that his kundali says that his bad luck will end once he marries the girl he loves. No girl he meets really loves him back enough to marry him though, until he meets Deepika Padukone. Ritesh Deshmukh plays Akshay Kumar's best friend, who always accepts Akshay Kumar's bad luck in a positive manner. Lara Dutta plays Ritesh's wife.

On the whole, this was a funny movie with lots of flaws. Many scenes were just unreasonable. The acting was decent for the most part. Akshay, Ritesh, Lara, Arjun, and Boman were good as usual, but the younger actresses were iffy. Deepika definitely acted better here than she did before. Her face actually showed expressions for once! She even looked better in most scenes. She did overact in many scenes, but it was better than the incredible underacting she had been ding up until this point.

Now the following contains spoilers.
When Akshay Kumar goes to London to stay with Ritesh and Lara, they introduce him to their boss, Randhir Kapoor, who decides that he will have his daughter (Jiah Khan) married to Akshay. Akshay and Jiah both agree t this, and get married. They go to Italy for their honeymoon, where Akshay finds out that Jiah has a boyfriend. First off, who gets his daughter married off just like that? And secondly, after Akshay finds out, he says it's okay?!?! I will say though that Jiah Khan looked a lot better here than she did in Ghajini (I didn't dare or care to watch Nishabd). Her role was really small, but after the whole her having a boyfriend and Akshay having a girlfriend (Deepika), Akshay and her met up like friends, which was totally weird.
Deepika initially slapped Akshay for trying to kiss her while she was performing CPR, but when she found out his wife was dead (a lie by the owner of the hotel in Italy), she felt bad for him and went out with him.
Arjun Rampal plays the head of Indian Military Intelligence, and yet cannot tell that a novice liar is lying straight to his face. Doesn't sound too right. Especially considering this novice liar has horrible luck...
The laughing gas scene at the end was not needed. It was an attempt to bring some humor by using the comedy icons Santa-Banta, but it yielded few laughs (for the viewers).

But apart from the nonsensical scenes, the movie was very enjoyable. I laughed out loud on more than one occasion. For example, the Dostana scenes were pretty funny, and although they have been done too many times, they were very Kantaben-like. In fact, Kantaben was Gujju, and so was Boman Irani (the man who "witnessed" these "Dostana" scenes). Many other scenes were too!

I'd say that if you enjoyed Heyy Babyy and Kabakht Ishq type nonsensical comedies or if you are in the mood for not using your mind and just relaxing, check this one out.

Guess the 2 Actors

I thought the last one would have been difficult, but I was wrong there. Let's see how long it takes for you to get this one. This should be fairly easy. I'll try to make the one after this difficult.

Coming Soon: Rajneeti


This movie should be awesome. The cast looks great! Check it out for yourself:

Coming Soon: Housefull

Housefull is a movie coming out this Friday, starring Akshay Kumar, Arjun Rampal, Ritesh Deshmukh, Boman Irani, Lara Dutta, Jiah Khan, and Deepika Padukone. Personally, I think the guys are awesome! Ritesh definitely worked out for this movie and Arjun and Akshay are always good looking.

Click here for the trailer (embedding is disabled)

I am personally very excited about this movie!!



Saw an interesting article just a little while ago. I read comments about it on different sites by readers who felt that this is not legit. What do you think? Is it worth the risk?

Illegal downloaders of Housefull, beware!
Thinking of downloading Housefull from the internet for a free view? Beware! Director Sajid Khan says he has used an anti-piracy software to make sure there are no illegal downloads of the film.

Sajid said that Housefull has used an anti-piracy and corruption software called Republique to avoid illegal downloading on the Internet.

"If anyone tries downloading it, not only will the files get corrupted but their IP address too will pop up and they will be prosecuted with all charges against them as per the anti-piracy law," he said.

"We even have a call centre in Mumbai with 35 people on board monitoring the illegal downloading of the film. We've tested the process too and it worked wonders in five seconds," he added.

Sajid was here at the DT Cinemas, DLF Promenade Tuesday evening to promote Housefull. Also present with him was the star cast of the movie including Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Arjun Rampal, Deepika Padukone and Jiah Khan.

Lara Dutta who also plays a pivotal role in the movie did not make it to the event. Releasing Friday, the movie has been produced by Sajid Nadiadwala.

Pyaar Impossible Review

I don't know about you, but I was pretty sure Pyaar Impossible would be horrible and completely pathetic. Surprisingly though, the Chopras seemed to pull together a decent film. Priyanka Chopra did overact (as usual), and Uday Chopra was not fantastic, but they were not bad. The popular girl in college role definitely suited PC, and UC also seemed fit for his role as the not-so-handsome geek. The songs were not worth watching for me, but they did make top 10 countdowns, so to each his/her own.
One thing that got me was the 6-year old daughter. No 6 year old is intelligent enough to be able to threaten a grown man to call the cops and manipulate them into finding this innocent man guilty of something, and no 6 year old is as mentally mature as her. I guess I'll just give them the benefit of the doubt and say the child was gifted.
Oh, just something random I remembered: PC said the phrase "You know how it is" way too many times in the movie, so that started getting a bit annoying. Did anyone else notice that?
Anyways, Dino Morea was a pleasant surprise in the movie. I was unaware that he was in it (or had just forgotten), so I got excited to see him. He acted as he usually does these days, which is not bad. He's come a long way from his Pyaar Mein Kabhi Kabhi days.
As for the plot, it was nothing very original, but it was played out nicely. Uday Chopra is a geek in college who is in love with the most popular girl, Priyanka Chopra. He never tells her, and in fact, she is oblivious to his existence altogether. After college, he spends 7 years developing a new software, which Dino Morea, pretending to be a businessman interested in buying the software, steals from Uday. Once Uday finds out, he goes to Singapore to hunt down Dino Morea, as per advice from Uday's father, Anupam Kher. Once in Singapore, Uday tries to find the executive of the company that allegedly employed Dino Morea, but instead of Dino, he comes across Priyanka. He goes to her house to talk to her about the software and how it was stolen by her company, but she mistakes him for a nanny sent to take care of her daughter and house. The story basically kicks off from there.
Overall, the movie was not fantastic or amazing, but it was a good timepass. If you have nothing better to do, go ahead and watch this movie. It's probably not as bad as you think.

Guess the 2 Actors!


Can you guess who these two actors are?

Pathshaala Review

Powered by: Chakpak.com Paathshala 


I was hoping this would be a good movie, since I had been looking forward to it for a while. I think I saw the trailers originally over a year ago, and it has just been in productions for way too long. I was expecting a Taare Zameen Par type story, but with a twist, but it was completely different. The story was about this school in which, in order to raise funds as dictated by the management, students were forced to pay higher tuition, participate in events for publicity, etc. Unfortunately though, there were many things that did not make sense.

The following contains spoilers, so if you really want to save the surprise, don't read this post any further. Shahid Kapoor's character was a new teacher at the school, and yet he was the most vocal of all the teachers about his views. Usually someone that new to a team is not given that much power from the get go. In the movie, he is an English teacher, but the principal wanted him to be a music teacher as well, but he declined. As far as I recall, there was maybe one scene in which he was teaching English, but lots of footage of him as a music teacher. There was a school girl who was infatuated with Shahid's character. That was such a pointless story, and I guess the director must have felt so as well, because that story was just left incomplete. The girl was just staring at him and got a gift for him (which they never showed her giving him). Her guy friend had a thing for her, which could only be seen briefly in a song. There was another boy who liked a girl whose brother told him to back off once in the movie, and nothing progressed there either. Ayesha Takia seemed way too happy for the movie. I really like her cuteness, but she must have been really happy about her wedding and that happiness showed too much in the movie.

Overall, I was expecting more from Shahid. He started doing so well in the middle, and I really liked Dil Bole Hadippa and Kaminey (to some extent), but he's going downhill with movies like Chance Pe Dance (boring!!!) and Pathshaala (slow and somewhat nonsensical). I hope Milenge Milenge is good, because I want to see him go back up. Ayesha Takia is adorable, and she should stick to more bubbly roles without much seriousness, although I'm sure if she tries a bit she'll get that as well.

3 Idiots

Although I cannot give a full review right now, I would like to give a shout-out to 3 Idiots. That movie was amazing!!! It had elements very similar to Lage Raho Munna Bhai, and just like that movie, this one was wonderful. Acting was fantastic and direction was phenomenal. Kareena was gorgeous and fit the role perfectly. Aamir was awesome as usual. Sharman Joshi and Madhavan acted really well, and Boman Irani was, as usual, a pleasure to watch. He makes the perfect "villain with a heart of gold." Personally I didn't like the songs before I saw the movie, but now I absolutely love them. Even the primarily background song Behti Hawa Sa Tha Woh was beautiful. All in all, great movie, full paisa vasool, much better than Avatar (sooo overrated), and just a very very good movie!

Guess Who 3!

I am quite busy these days, so there are not very many posts, but I thought I'd at least keep the competition going. Please participate!
I know I said this would be harder, but I think it is probably the same level as the previous one...oh well!
