Kambakkht Ishq: Another Hollywood-Influenced Bollywood Entertainer

Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor starrer Kambakkht Ishq was released today. Though time has not come to write whether it is a box office hit or not, but the movie is reportedly based on a loose story, but is totally intended to provide entertainment. Influenced by Hollywood culture, the movie features kissing scenes, women appearing in short dresses as well as some of the Hollywood stars like Sylvester Stallone, Denise Richards, Brandon Routh and Holly Valance in cameo roles. Kambakkht Ishq is both written and directed by Sabbir Khan. Bollywood fans could experience some attractive action stunts by action hero Akshay Kumar in the movie too. The movie also features Aftab Shivdasani, Amrita Arora, Kirron Kher in some pivotal roles.

The current trend of Bollywood is to give entertainment to the audience anyhow and make some good cash in featuring some action scenes, kissing scenes as well as big stars in the lead roles alongside some of surprises like the appearance of Hollywood actor Sylvester Stallone in the movie. Kambakkht Ishq also seems not to be different.
