Latest Bollywood film Victory has had its global premier held at Colombo's Regal Theater recently. The movie is based on a cricket related story that portrays a young boy named Vijay Shekhawat who comes from a typical village in Rajasthan and later on plays for Indian cricket team as his father wishes. The movie was shot in several locations in India, Sri Lanka, Australia and Pakistan. Victory casts the Bollywood stars like Herman Baweja, Amrita Rao and Gulshan Grover.

Bollywood in 2009: What to Expect?

To be honest with you, I do not expect a lot from Bollywood in 2009. 2008 was a disaster as year and I don’t expect that anything significant will happen in this year too. You may call me pessimistic and even the city with me and I will come you for this matter. But however, let me tell you my reason of being so much pessimistic. But frankly, I do not see any change taking place among Bollywood directors and producers and actors and actresses. But I also cannot find any change in the way Bollywood movies are made. But I do not see any new face that can ensure a big hits in the box office. You might talk about that Katrina Kaif but I do not see any big potential in her. All the but the ding actors of Bollywood are getting old and the presence of Shahrukh Khan does not ensure but he its success in the box office anymore.

Another matter, that is, 2009 is going to be a year of cricket. You know that Indian people are crazy for two things only Cricket and Bollywood. For example, tomorrow, Australia vs South Africa 3rd Test and although India is not taking part in this match, you can expect that many people will logon to their television to enjoy the match.
