This and That

Friday, October 22, 2010

One of those days… the calm before a storm of releases hits. Just a few random thoughts:

  • It almost seems like even God punished plagiarism - since both Aakrosh and Knock Out bombed badly.
  • If Bipasha Basu (Aakrosh) thinks not wearing tons of make-up and dressing in cotton saris is acting, she is never going to win that national award!
  • John Abraham in a bespectacled nerd look that doesn’t suit him at all in (Jhoota Hi Sahi)—what a waste of sex appeal.
  • Mallika Sherawat must have paraded on dozens of red carpets, but not a single person I know wants to see Hisss.
  • Ram Gopal Varma is so funny on his tweets; he should attempt a comedy instead of his usual rogues’ gallery films.
  • Incidentally, why do funny films have to have posters with stars posing with idiotic expressions?
  • Stars making bit-part appearances on TV shows—does that mean TV is now a more powerful medium than cinema?
  • Bollywood buries it 40 plus actresses, but if the choice is playing desperate single women like Jennifer Aniston types are slotted into (The Switch), then it’s no choice at all?
  • Sometimes, Hollywood does a Bollywood-style story better than Bollywood. Just look at Letters to Juliet.
  • Is Guzaarish set in India? Why do the promos make the characters look vaguely East European?
  • Guzaarish also looks like a copy of The Sea Inside… is it?
  • Agneepath was not such a great film, why bother to remake it?
  • What’s with Pakistani singers turning to acting - our own are better heard than seen.
  • Apparently Himesh Reshammiya starrer Kajraare came and went and nobody knew.
  •  Ang Lee must know what he is doing, and it a great opportunity for Sonu Sood, but an eight-pack hunk as Pi’s father (in film adaptation of Life of Pi)? Strange!
  • Bollywood muscling into the Indian Panorama section too!
  • Great to see young people registering for the MAMI film festival, hopefully they will be dazzled by the cinema on show.
  • Maybe out cut-paste filmmakers will get to copy some unconventional plots too.
  • MAMI has a discussion session with eight emerging women directors, surprising they found eight, considering how tough it is for women to get into Bollywood.
  • Why does a film called Band Baaja Baraat not evoke excitement?
  • Hope Anil Kapoor’s foray into mainstream Hollywood will be worth the while. About time India had an international star.
  • Somebody asks which film among the ones in the last two months of this year one is really looking forward to and the answer is uh…um…err… dunno!
