Will My Name Is Khan salvage Shah Rukh Khan’s sinking career?

The year 2009 had not been so good for our “Bollywood Badshah,” Shah Rukh Khan. In February, Billu was released. It was his only movie throughout the year and it tanked at the box office. For a long time, the Khan had been suffering from back injury and then there was his shoulder injury that caused him so much pain that he had to postpone his shooting for My Name Is Khan. Still, Shah Rukh Khan can not be blamed alone. The year 2009 had been very bad for Bollywood, with Swine Flu, IPL, Bollywood producer-multiplex owner standoff, and economic recession cost Bollywood a whopping Rs.7 billion.


Now, a new year is coming filled with hopes and promises. The recession has ended and our King Khan is back on track with his new movie, My Name is Khan. The movie revolves around the story of an Indian Muslim living in the U.S and the adversity he faces after the 9/11 terrorist attack. The movie is scheduled to be released on February 12, 2009.

3 Idiots: Ending the year on a happy note

Seeing Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots names of two movies immediately came to my mind- Taare Zameen Par and Patch Adams. In one way, you can say that 3 Idiots is another version of TZP. Both these movies reveal the weakness of the Indian education system. How students are forced to memorize and not be creative. How parents force their children to fulfill their dreams but they end up miserably. 3 Idiots is just the adult version of that story. On the other hand, Patch Adams is a Hollywood movie starring famous comedy actor Robin Williams. Patch Adams is the story of Patch Adams a brilliant doctor whose unconventional views about medical treatment put him into direct conflict with the school’s dean. I am not saying that 3 Idiots is inspirited from Patch Adams, even if it did, there is no problem because both these movies have their own stories to tell and both of them are great and at the end of these movies you will go home teary eyed feeling good. First of all, I would like to congratulate director Rajkumar Hirani and all the actors for giving us such a great movie. 3 Idiots deserves a straight “A”. The year 2009, would be remembered as a year of financial crisis for Bollywood movie industry but this movie will give the movie makers a reason to smile.


3 Idiots starts with the journey of two friends- Farhan Qureshi (Madhavan) and Raju Rastogi (Sharman Joshi) who resumed their journey after five years in search of an old friend, Ranchoddas Shaymaldas Chanchad (Aamir Khan), who changed their lives and taught them to pursue “Excellence.” The movie then goes to a flashback to the college days of the three friends narrated by Farhan Qureshi. Raju Rastogi came from a lower middle class family. His father works as a postman. Since he was good in his study, his family went through great hardship to support him through his school and college. Now, he is in one of the most prestigious engineering colleges in India and if he graduates from here, his family’s condition will change. Raju carries a huge burden of expectation. Farhan always wanted to become a wildlife photographer but he gave up his dream for the sake of his family. Finally, there was our Rancho, a free thinker and a genius who loves what he does. Rancho is the problem creator in the class. He never conforms but asks questions which puts him into direct conflict with dean, Viru Sahastrabudhhe (Boman Irani). Everytime, he tries to pressure Rancho, he deceives him. Rancho acts like stupid in the class but at the end of the day, he scores the highest mark. 3 Idiots gives you an idea of an education system that does not spawn creativity and make students pass exams and get good jobs but not inspire them to do something bigger and better.


The strong point of 3 Idiots is its direction and screen play. Vidhu Vinod Chopra,

Rajkumar Hirani, Abhijit Joshi worked diligently on the script which comes with lots great scenes with superb dialogues.



In terms of acting, 3 Idiots is a movie of characters. There are three friends with three different characters and then there are the supporting characters and the actors did a great job.


I have great respect for Aamir Khan because his movies are always special. He is consistent and when he does something it becomes unforgettable. In 3 Idiots he just did that once again. The actor played a dual role- the role of a young college graduate in his twenties and the role of a grown up guy. He played his roles with great ease and gave out a great performance.


Madhavan and Sharman Joshi was no less talented. Sharman’s role was also very complex but he proved himself to be an actor who can deliver rocking performance be it comedy, be it serious melo-drama.


Kareena Kapoor’s role Piya, the daughter of Viru Sahastrabudhhe, the dean of the Engineering college who is engaged to a business tycoon but falls in love with Aamir Khan played his part very well.


Boman Irani played the cruel dean who likes the traditional ways and always clashing with Rancho. He fits in very well because he already played such role in Munnabhai and he knows what he has to do.


In the end, I would suggest that you go and watch 3 Idiots and give yourself a reason to be happy in the Christmas Eve.

Aamir Khan and Sharman Joshi lose their muscles for 3 Idiots

Today, you may know him as one of the top directors of Bollywood. He has everything a man can ask in life but Rajkumar Hirani has his own story of struggle. During his school years, he was an average student and followed the usual course and decided to study doctor. Thank god, he did not succeed or else we could not have seen movies like Munnabhai. In his upcoming movie, 3 Idiots Rajkumar Hirani shows the journey of three ordinary guys labeled as ‘Idiots’ by their teachers becoming a hero just like him. In an interview the director talks about the making of the movie.


The idea of 3 Idiots came to him after he read Chetan Bhagat's novel, “Five Point Someone.” At that time, he was preparing to make another episode of Munnabhai, “Munnabhai Chale America” but he could not focus on the movie because another new idea was coming to his head. Finally, he decided to get it of his head and start working on 3 Idiots. Now, that it is finished he will resume his work on Munnabhai. Rajkumar Hirani had a great time working with the actors in the movie. He said:

I don't know where these stories come from. I know this is Aamir's perceived image and whatever he does, it will be difficult to wipe out that image. But I faced no issues like that. I think Aamir's dedication is mistaken as interference.

I would rather have a dedicated guy than an indifferent guy. I expect Aamir to tell me his view points when I am directing a scene.

In order to play the character of a typical IIT student Aamir Khan and Salman Khan had to lose their muscles. Madhavan on the contrary looked fat as there are many fat students.


Initially, Rajkumar Hirani thought of Shah Rukh Khan but it did not work. Then Aamir Khan convinced him that he could look younger than his age and he made it possible. The rest of the cast was then fixed up. For his role, Boman Irani went to an old tailor in Dadar who stitches old clothes and bought some cheap suits. Though Kareena Kapoor’s role was shorter, Rajkumar Hirani said that he remained true to the script. The character of the heroin is shorter. 3 Idiots is not a romantic story, romance just one of the sub-plots of the movie.

The movie tells the story of a thirteen year old boy named Auro who was suffering from a rare disease caused by genetic defect. Amitabh Bachchan played the role of Auro. It was a big challenge for the actor because he is more than sixty years old and in the movie, he played the role of a thirteen year old boy but Amitabh Bachchan lived up to the challenge. He portrayed the character of Auro very well in the movie. Amitabh Bachchan’s son Abhishek Bachchan and Vidya Balan also acted along with him.

Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor’s Agent Vinod is under financial pressure

Bollywood is now going to through a tough phase as it has been hit heart by global recession. Moreover, these days, having big movie stars do not ensure success of the movie. Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor are two of the most sought after actors in Bollywood. The couple appeared in three movies so far- Kurbaan, Tashan, and Roadside Romeo. All of them bombed at the box office. For this reason, there next movie Agent Vinod is under financial pressure. Agent Vinod which stars Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor as undercover agents will be produced jointly by Eros International and Illuminati Films, which is co-owned by Saif Ali Khan and Dinesh Vijan. Rumor spread out that, Eros International is considering to cut the budget of the film from Rs 65 crores to Rs 40 crores. The Times of India reports:

In today's time, when having a big star in one's film does not guarantee money recovery, it is not surprising that Eros is having second thoughts about the budget of the film. Apparently, the dismal performance of the recent Saif-Kareena starrer Kurbaan at the box-office has also played a big role in Eros deciding to cut costs. Incidentally, this is the third time recently that the real life couple failed to set the screen on fire. They had not too long ago worked together in Roadside Romeo and Tashan.

When Sriram Raghavan, director of Agent Vinod, was contacted, he told that he was not aware of the budget cuts and he said that he would not cut short the script because there are lots of action sequences that requires shooting in foreign locations. Even Kareena Kapoor will be doing some action sequences like those Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider.

Is it right to compare Abhay Deol with Johnny Depp?

Abhay Deol is not a famous actor in Bollywood. Even I can not think any of his movies which got box office hit. That does not mean that he is a good actor. I have to admit that Abhay Deol is a hard working and talented actor in Bollywood. If he continues his acting then one he will become a top actor. However, I have become surprised when I hear that he is called Johnny Depp of Bollywood.

Abhay Deol is the most sought after actor in Bollywood. The most important thing is that Abhay Deol has been invited by all most all film festivals world over. Not only that but also he met with some veteran directors and actors like Martin Scorcese, Robert de Nero, Jodie Foster, Matt Damon during his visit to the festivals. Is it enough to introduce him as Johnny Depp?

ADURS is a Telugu language movie. It is yet to release. Now, movie lovers are searching on net about the songs and video of this movie.

Who will tie knot this year in Bollywood?

Two Bollywood actresses have got married this year. Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty tied her knot with Raj Kundra on 22nd November 2009. Just after a week of Shilpa Shetty’s wedding, we can see another actress Isha Kopikar to get married with her long time boy friend Timmy Narang. It is thought that other Bollywood actors and actresses will follow their footsteps. This year may be the perfect year to get married and start new life.

Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor are the most talked couple in Bollywood. Almost everyone in Hindi movie industry knows about their relationship. Even they are staying together in an apartment. But what is the problem to get married? I hope that they will tie knot soon.

Another most talked real life couple is John Abraham and Bipasha Basu. They are also considered as the hottest couple of Bollywood. May be their relation is no less than eight years. But they are not talking about marry yet. Is anything wrong going between them?

Salman Khan is the most famous actor in India. He is also considered one of the most demandable bachelors. Girls are crazy for him. However, we can hear about him to get involved with Katrina Kaif. They did not say anything about their relationship publicly. I don’t know how much it is true. Salman Khan is now 43 years old. After few years he may not get any girl for marriage. Can we hope that Salman Khan will get married with Katrina Kaif?

Till now, I have talked about the relationships between top actors and actresses. There are some couples who are yet to get married. They are Rani Mukerjee and Aditya Chopra, Konkona Sensharma and Ranvir Shorey, Sushmita Sen and Mudassar, Genelia D’Souza and Ritesh Deshmukh and Amisha Patel and Kanav Purie.
