Amitabh Elak Bertemu Salman

6 Jul

MUNGKIN perkara ini disengaja, mungkin juga tidak. Namun Amitabh Bachchan (Big B) dilaporkan meninggalkan majlis pelancaran muzik filem Singh Is Kinng tepat ketika Salman Khan datang. Filem tersebut dibintangi Akshay Kumar dan disebabkan Akshay tidak dapat hadir, penerbit filem ini, Vipul Amrutal Shah merasmikan majlis tersebut.

Salman Khan, yang menjadi bintang utama filem arahan Vipul, London Dreams juga diundang dalam majlis pelancaran album tersebut.

Laporan mengatakan ketika majlis sedang berlangsung, Big B pergi dan meninggalkan majlis. Bertepatan dengan itu, Salman datang dengan kekasihnya, Katrina Kaif.

Katrina sendiri merupakan pelakon utama filem tersebut. Sebuah sumber mengatakan bahwa Big B dan Salman tidak mempunyai masalah apa-apa dan tidak ada alasan untuk saling menghindar satu sama lain.

“Hakikatnya, mereka berdua bekerjasama dalam filem God Tussi Great Ho dan selama penggambaran, hubungan mereka baik sahaja,” tambah sumber tersebut.

Cinema: Cast, Humour Make It Worthwhile

2 Jul

Saif Ali Khan with Rani Mukerji and Amisha Patel in Thoda Pyar Thoda Magic.
Saif Ali Khan with Rani Mukerji and Amisha Patel in Thoda Pyar Thoda Magic.

Now Playing

THODA PYAR THODA MAGIC (Hindi)
Directed by Kunal Kohli
Starring Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukerji, Amisha Patel, Rishi Kapoor, Akshat Chopra

JUST like Bhootnath (with Amitabh Bachchan taking the role of a ghost), this movie is aimed at the young ones.

But this movie is better than Bhootnath not only because it has a better cast but because of the seamless use of graphics to make the story more interesting. And the cinematography (Sudeep Chatterjee) is fantastic.

And there’s none of the melancholy that pervaded Bhootnath.

This is surprising since the story deals with four children who are orphaned after their parents are killed in an accident.

The car driver, Ranbir (Saif Ali Khan) is ordered by the courts to take care of them until they are 18.

Saif, who has never in his life bothered about anyone except his business, suddenly finds his life in turmoil.

The children are rebellious and only have one intention, to bring misery to the person who took away their parents.

What Ranbir needs is a miracle. An angel Geetha (Rani Mukerji) is sent by Bhagavan (Rishi Kapoor) from the heavens to help the children.

The song sequences are a bit far-fetched (including a trip to the museum where everything, including a dinosaur, comes alive) but you can easily forgive the producers as they are few in between.

You also get a wonderful free ride through Universal Studios and San Diego Zoo in the United States.

Don’t miss out the sexy song scene involving Amisha Patel at the poolside. She and Saif even managed to duet underwater!

This is a feel-good movie with plenty of humour.

Kunal Kohli, who had winners with Fanaa and Hum Tum, may have struck gold again, even if this is more of a children’s movie.

Yash Raj Films seem to have yet another winner on their hands.

Saif’s stars are brighter than ever. The heavens seem to be showering their blessings on him.

Aishwarya Dibayar RM4.5j Satu Filem

29 Jun

Aksi aktres dalam ‘Robot’ raih bayaran tertinggi

NEW DELHI: Pelakon popular, Aishwarya Rai muncul pelakon wanita menerima bayaran paling mahal di Bollywood apabila dibayar kira-kira RM4.5 juta untuk berlakon dalam sebuah filem.

Media tempatan memetik sumber berkata, aktres yang juga isteri aktor Abhishek Bachchan itu, menerima tawaran lumayan berkenaan untuk menjadi heroin dalam filem terbaru, ‘Robot’ yang bakal menjadi hasil garapan pengarah, Shankar Rajinikanth dan dikeluarkan syarikat Ayngaran International.

Aishwarya dilaporkan menandatangani surat perjanjian itu minggu lalu dan turut diberi wang pendahuluan lumayan sebagai menghargai persetujuan berkenaan.

Apa yang pasti, bayaran RM4.5 juta bagi satu filem sememangnya menjadi angka tertinggi pernah diraih mana-mana aktres Bollywood untuk muncul dalam satu filem.

Aishwarya juga sudah menyatakan persetujuannya memberikan tarikh sesuai bagi memulakan penggambaran.

Ini disebabkan, Shankar sepatutnya memulakan penggambaran filem berkenaan pada minggu pertama bulan ini. Namun disebabkan beberapa masalah, proses itu akan hanya bermula pada minggu terakhir Ogos selepas selesai penggambaran filem Pooja di Chennai.

Soal tarikh sememangnya masalah besar bagi Aishwarya yang terlalu sibuk dengan komitmen di Bollywood mahu pun di peringkat antarabangsa.

Dia sudah memperuntukkan seluruh bulan Julai dan Ogos ini bagi konsert jelajah anjuran bapa mertuanya, aktor veteran Amitabh Bachchan.

Konsert jelajah dikenali ‘Unforgettable World Tour’ itu adalah beberapa siri persembahan di beberapa lokasi luar negara yang mengutarakan keluarga popular Bollywood berkenaan serta barisan bintang lain.

Sementara itu, satu lagi khabar angin yang bertiup kencang mengenai Aishwarya ialah beliau mungkin ditawarkan sebuah syarikat filem Pakistan untuk melakonkan watak bekas Perdana Menteri Benazir Bhutto yang menjadi mangsa pembunuhan.

Jurucakap syarikat UTV hanya mengulas bahawa ia hanya akan memberi maklumat itu selepas semuanya dipersetujui pihak terbabit. – Agensi

Make A Fashion Statement With Waistcoats

18 Jun

Make a fashion statement with waistcoats
 

Waistcoats are ‘in’ this season. From superstars like  SRK to regular college going guys, everyone is sporting this trendy semi-formal wear. Earlier, waistcoats used to be formal wear worn on top of shirts to complete a tuxedo. Now, guys are sporting it to make a style statement, especially at social dos. Says fashion designer Abhishek Dutta, since waistcoats cling to the body and accentuate the waistline, it’s best for medium-built or slim men to wear this. About the fabric, Dutta says, “Guys can choose from denim, suede, leather or thick linen. The pointed portion should reach up to the waistline and it’s always better to have buttons rather than zips on your waistcoat.

Talking about the colours and patterns, Dutta says, Large Madras checks, blocks and Gingham checks (closely-bound gradation checks) are quite ‘in’. “Thin, vertical stripes in pink are also popular as they  enhance the tall and slim look. On the other hand, those who are rather lanky and want to look a bit heavy should opt for horizontal stripes.” Among the cool, solid colours are black, charcoal grey, brown, tones of rust and maroon, informs the designer. When waistcoats are worn over shirts or suits of almost the same colour, this renders it a more formal and sober look. For the fashionable young crowd, it’s better to opt for frayed, denim waistcoats on shirts. “It’s also a safer option to wear striped or checkered waistcoats when the shirt is of a solid colour and vice-versa,” suggests Dutta.

 

‘My family is my best critic’
 
Laxmi Ratan Shukla, cricketer

Cricketer Laxmi Ratan Shukla takes the criticism and compliments from his father and wife very seriously.

Q Down memory lane῅ I was a very naughty child and frequently used to bunk classes and play cricket. My teachers used to get very angry. However, when I meet them now, referring to my bunking, they tell me, bahut aachha kiya. (It was a good thing that you did).

Q If not a sportsperson῅ Perhaps I would have joined my dad’s business.

Q Your favourite holiday destinations in India and abroad? In India, I love the scenic mountains of Rishikesh in Uttaranchal. Abroad, I like England where I have many friends. Scotland, Yorkshire and Liverpool are other favourite destinations near England.

Q  Any social work you are into? I don’t believe in instituionalised charity because most of the times, you are never sure if the money will reach the right persons. When someone approaches me, I verify if the person is really needy and then help him. Some years ago, I raised Rs 4 lakh by playing for my local club. I donated the money to the families of Kargil soldiers who lost their lives.

Q  Personalities you admire most῅ My father who used to coach and inspire me since my childhood, Sourav Ganguly, (I grew up watching him), Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Madhuri Dixit. What amazes me about Big B is the fact that even at 65, he is so fit and hard working. I have watched SRK from close quarters during the two months of IPL. He is so down to earth and yet such a successful man.

Q How do you like to chill out? I love to spend time with my wife and parents, whenever I get time. I also watch TV and movies and chat with friends to relax.

Q Your favourite cuisines? Homemade food prepared by my mother.

Q What is the best compliment you have received so far and from whom? My family is my best critic.  So, when my father and wife Smita praise me, (which is not very often), I take it as a compliment. Also, during the IPL, when I took three wickets in one over, both Sourav Ganguly and Shah Rukh Khan praised me. I consider it a great moment.

Q Your message for those who want to make it big in the field of sports? Work hard. However, don’t jump into a cricketing career just for the lure of money and glamour or just because your parents are forcing you to get into cricket. Take up the sport only if you truly love the game.

Mr Nice doesn’t mean ‘doormat’
 
Male call

Q  My girlfriend and I have started to move to the next level, but now she says the relationship is boring, and that I’m too nice to her. How can I make the relationship fun, and not be so nice?

A Just one question for you: what relationship? Because this one was toast from ‘Hello.’ At least she was honest and didn’t give you the “It’s not you, it’s me” line. Although we hope her assessment of “boring” didn’t happen to come immediately after your move to the “next level.” OK, then, here’s the thing: There’s nice, and then there’s doormat. It’s one thing to be polite, generous and mindful of feelings. It’s another to be servile, supplicant and slavish. Being ‘nice’ is fine, even admirable, but it’s no secret that most women prefer guys with a little backbone, too. So even your civility with a smidge of brazenness, recklessness and of course, a dash of humour.

The situation: You’re debating where to go on a date; girlfriend suggests a place and asks what you would like to do. Possible responses: Too nice: “Whatever you want, dear. What would you like me to wear?” Too mean: “That’s the most idiotic idea I’ve ever heard in my life. What’s the speed-dial for Round Table again?”

Just right: “I’ll take care of it; let me surprise you. Appropriate attire would be, um, that black dress with the plunging back. The short one.” Plus, just think of the admiring looks you’ll get from the other couples when you walk into the pizza place. Priceless!       

Want brownie points? Be your wife’s buddy
 

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan gushed in an interview that a girl who finds a friend in her husband is the luckiest wife. We speak to a few happily married women to find out what equation they share with their husband

Sunita Sengupta,  television actor For a healthy relationship, couples should not stick to playing the traditional roles of husband and wife. Instead, they must be good friends. They should not have pre-conceived expectations but treat each other as individuals. My husband, Harsh Chhaya is supportive of my decisions and he is proud of all my achievements. What makes me feel that he’s my best friend is he recognises my desires, problems and difficulties.

Sheeba ,  television actor It’s very important for couples to be friends first. It goes without saying that friends always respect each other and that’s the underlying foundation for any successful relationship. I have been married for 11 years now, and I’m lucky to have found a friend, confidant and guide in my husband. He’s my support whenever I am confused and need advice. Men must remember, it’s little things that make women happy and my husband understands this simple rule.

Mahima Chaudhary, actor My husband is the one I hang out with 24/7, so it’s important that he’s my best friend. I can confide in him, no matter what. It also helps that we have common interests. The best thing about my husband is that he knows me inside out. To be a woman’s best friend, one has to be honest with her and above all, respect her. Honesty, trust and respect are three attributes which are very important in any relationship, more so in a marriage.

I invest in real estate: Rajneesh Duggal
 

I  always look for uniformity when it comes to yielding profits. That’s one of the main reasons why I keep myself away from the stock market.  I personally believe in buying insurance policies as they remain unaffected by the ups and downs of the stock market. When it comes to investments, I usually trust safer options. Most of my money is invested in mutual funds and insurance policies.  I like to secure my future by buying both life insurance policies as well as health insurances for myself and my family.

Those who just can’t avoid the temptation on quick money that shares promise, must watch the market carefully, at least for three-four months. While planning investment in stock market one needs  to have complete knowledge of the market.  If you have little money and are looking for short term benefits, I would suggest you invest in mutual funds. They are definitely a safer option.  Real estate is best form of investment, if you are looking at yielding bigger profits in the long run. Gold is also a good investment option, though I don’t buy too much of it.

Chak De India Filem Terbaik IIFA

15 Jun

TERNYATA kombinasi Shimit Amin (pengarah) dan Shah Rukh Khan (SRK) berjaya memenangi hati juri dalam filem Chak De India pada anugerah oscar versi Bollywood atau International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) di Bangkok, Thailand baru-baru ini.

Filem ini mengisahkan seorang pemain hoki kembali ke padang hoki untuk melatih sebuah pasukan hoki wanita untuk menjuarai Piala Dunia.

Shimit dan SRK turut meraih anugerah masing-masing untuk kategori pengarah dan pelakon lelaki terbaik.

Majlis anugerah yang dikatakan setaraf Anugerah Oscar di Hollywood ini dimulakan dengan beberapa tayangan filem perdana.

Seramai 500 selebriti popular termasuk Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Saif Ali Khan, Akshay Kumar, dan Govinda memeriahkan majlis ini.

Menurut ikon filem India dan duta IIFA, Amitabh Bachchan, majlis ini membawa semangat perfileman India ke setiap penjuru dunia dan menyatupadukan budaya dari setiap benua.

Industri filem Bollywood mempunyai ramai peminat di India dan industri itu dianggarkan bernilai AS$2.2 bilion (RM7.17 bilion) pada tahun lalu.

Bagaimanapun, industri filem Bollywood masih jauh ketinggalan berbanding Hollywood dan IIFA diadakan bagi mengembangkan industri itu ke seluruh dunia.

Enam bulan selepas majlis anugerah IIFA diadakan di London, jualan tiket untuk filem Bollywood dilaporkan meningkat sebanyak 35 peratus di Britain.

Rai Tidak Dipelawa Naik Helikopter

4 Jan

RAI

NEW DELHI – Keretakan hubungan dua pelakon terkenal Bollywood, Hrithik Roshan dan Aishwarya Rai semakin menjadi-jadi walaupun mereka sebelum ini pernah melakukan adegan bercium dalam filem Dhoom 2 yang diterbitkan pada 2006, lapor sebuah akhbar semalam.

Dalam perbalahan terbaru, Roshan tidak berminat untuk mempelawa Rai menaiki helikopter miliknya dari Mumbai ke lokasi penggambaran mereka di Karjat bagi mengelak kesesakan lalu lintas.

ROSHAN

Mereka yang menjadi hero dan heroin dalam filem epik Jodhaa Akbar arahan Ashutosh Gowariker itu juga dilaporkan rengang ketika berada di set penggambaran.

Kedua-dua pelakon itu hanya berinteraksi bila terdapat keperluan.

Hanya Roshan yang sanggup berlakon di sisi Rai selepas Shah Rukh Khan dan Salman Khan menolak untuk digandingkan dengan bekas ratu cantik itu.

Rai melangsungkan perkahwinan dengan Abhishek Bachchan iaitu anak kepada legenda Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan pada April tahun lalu.

Aktres itu juga menimbulkan kekecohan kerana tiba lewat lebih sejam ke lokasi penggambaran dan membawa seorang pelawat yang akhirnya membuatkan Roshan panas hati.

“Mungkin Rai mahu menaiki helikopter dengan suaminya.

“Dia sudah bersuami sekarang,” kata Roshan dengan nada menyindir ketika menyentuh mengenai isu helikopter. – Agensi

Arre O’ Samba!

31 Aug


Arre O’ Samba!

SANGEETHA DEVI DUNDOO

‘Aag’ hits the screens today, but without all of the immortal lines of ‘Sholay’. We take a look at dialogues that have outlived their films in the recent times – from Mumbaiyya one-liners to Urdu couplets.


Smart talk Stills from &#8216’Aag’

Aag, what Ram Gopal Varma calls as his “interpretation of Sholay,” releases today. When Amitabh Bachchan takes centre stage as Babban Singh, the audience will pitch him against late Amjad Khan’s character of Gabbar.

For many, watching Sholay is a karaoke experience. Having memorised the dialogues (Salim-Javed), the Sholay faithfuls would join Dharmendra in echoing “Kuttey mein tera koon peejaoonga,” or Amjad Khan in “Kitne Aadmi The?” Varma’s Aag, on the other hand, will tear away from the original and according to Varma, will not replicate all of the immortal lines. “My film is a tribute to Sholay and not a remake. Babban is an exotic looking, larger-than-life villain and is as dangerous as Gabbar. But the way he speaks will be different,” reasons Varma.


Don – the chase begins

Keep it short


Munna Bhai MBBS

“Which film’s dialogues have stayed in public memory in the last 15 years?” asks Amitabh Bachchan, talking to Friday Review. If Shah Rukh Khan as Don is widely heard on ringtones and ringback ton
es of mobile phone users declaring “Don ko pakhadna mushkil hi nahin, namumkin hai,” that too cuts back to Amitabh Bachchan’s original Don (dialogues by Salim-Javed again) in 1978. Amitabh reasons t
hat the emphasis on dialogues has changed over the years. “This is the age of fast food; everything has to be precise and concise. If your laptop takes a few minutes to boot, you want to replace the hard disk. There’s no time for redundancy and rhetoric. We have to cater to this generation of youngsters. On the other hand, films in the 50s to the 80s emphasised on the written word,” he says.

The written word still rules, and blends to suit different contexts. Mumbaiyya language saw a revival thanks to Munna Bhai and Arshad Warsi. “Even today, many people on the streets call me ‘maamu.’ Mu
nna Bhai MBBS
and Lage Raho Munna Bhai spoke in a language that people could relate to. It’s needless to add that only when the story, the concept and the film succeed, people remember the dialogues,” points out actor
Bomman Irani.

A stark departure from Don, Aag and Munna Bhai are films like Fanaa and Rang De Basanti. An easy blend of Urdu and Hindi hooked the younger lot to Fanaa. An
d Rang De Basanti (dialogues by Prasoon Joshi and Rensi D’Silva) made both ‘masti ki pathshaala’ and ‘Sarfaroshi ki Tamanna’ anthems for many a revolution across colle
ges. “Before RDB, I had planned to make another film on freedom fighters who preferred the sword to the pen. We got groups of youngsters in Delhi and Mumbai and discussed at length about the freedom movement and what they thought of the country. It was clear that they weren’t interested. I understood that I had to juxtapose the old with the new. This reflects in every aspect of the film – from the screen play to the dialogues and lyrics in songs. We needed Sarfaroshi ki tamanna as much as Roobaroo and Masti ki paathshala,” says Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra.

In the film, Su, the Brit youngster, watches in dismay as Siddharth and his friends read lines from her script – Azadi meri dulhan hai – and chuckle “what’s his (Bhagat Singh) problem? Who speaks like this?” Of course, the brat pack undergoes a sea change and get into the spirit of the roles of the freedom fighters. Lines from the Bhagvad Gita echo in the background as the freedom fighters endure their days of torment in prison.


Rang De Basanti

Fanaa, meanwhile, is a throw back to the days of the shayari. Among the many quoted in the film, “Tere dil mein meri saason ko panaah mil jaye, tere ishq mein meri jaan fanaa ho jaye,”
remains the most popular. In Shaan’s voice, Subhanallah also became an anthem.

Lyricist and writer Javed Akhtar explains, “Don and Sholay captured the youngsters with smart one-liners. The other films presented couplets that were easy for the younger lot to understand. Many youngsters
cannot differentiate between Hindi and Urdu. They assume that what they can understand easily is Hindi and what takes them some time to decipher is Urdu. There is no clear boundary between spoken Urdu and Hindi. In many films and songs, what is used is neither pure Hindi nor Urdu. It’s Hindustani.”

And we’ll get to see more of this blend when Ashutosh Gowarikar’s Akbar-Jodha opens later this year with Hrithik and Aishwarya Rai.
