Aamir Khan starring “3 Idiots” got best film award

Hindi movie fans enjoyed a star studded 55th Filmfare awards on Saturday night. Many Hindi movies and its stars were awarded in different categories. Top Bollywood actor Aamir Khan starring '3 Idiots' was one of the most successful movies. It made a big surprise in the award ceremony after taking six trophies including best film. I was optimistic about the success of this film because it hit the box office in 2009 and it was the last successful movie in the last year. Rajkumar Hirani, who directed this film, won four awards. He won the best director award. He also won the best story trophy along with Abhijat Joshi. Not only that but also he won best screenplay award with Vidhu Vinod Chopra. This talented person also won best dialogue award for this film.

The main attraction of this film was Amitabh Bachchan. This legend actor won the best actor award. His film Paa won two awards. The actress of this film Vidya Balan got best actress award. However, despite winnings a prestigious award, Bachchans family boycotted the award ceremony because of the false news reported about Aishwarya Rai's health in Mumbai Mirror. The Bachchans have sent a legal notice to the editor of this newspaper and asked him to say apologize in publicly. It is also thought that Amitabh Bachchan may refuse the award later.

The Bachchans would not attend the 55th Filmfare award show

The Bachchans are very angry over false news published by Mumbai Mirror saying that Aishwarya Rai is suffering from stomach tuberculosis and that is why she can not conceive. After this news came out, the Bachchan family became very angry. The Mumbai Mirror and Filmfare, which are owned by Times Group, published this news. The Bachchan family has a very good relationship with the Times Group. But they have sent a legal notice to the editor of the Mumbai Mirror asking for a retraction and public apology. Regarding this news, Amitabh Bachchan said,

"We have informed Filmfare that neither will Aishwarya be performing at the event, for which all preparations had been made and neither shall any of us be attending”.

The Bachchan is very angry that the newspaper did not publish a formal apology letter. However, Mumbai Mirror editor talked to the Bachchans over the phone and said sorry to them in private. However, Bachchans are not happy with this. They said that you can not just embarrass people publicly and then say sorry in private. Along with the Bachchans, director R. Balakrishnan, who directed Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek starrer Paa, also decided to stay away from the event to show support to the family.

Teen Patti review: Just another over hyped movie

Amitabh Bachchan and Ben Kingsley starrer Teen Patti has come to the theatres but expect no ordinary people to go and enjoy the movie because he would not understand what the movie is about. The biggest weakness of the movie is that the subject of the movie caters to the test of the educated people. Amitabh Bachchan played an unsuccessful math professor, Venkat Subaramanium, whose superiors claim that his research findings have no real world application.

However, his theory of probability could predict the winner in a card game and bring in lots of money. Venkat was then persuaded by his colleague, Prof. Shantanu Biswas, to use the theory. The two professors and a bunch of students then start hanging out at the various underground gambling dens of Mumbai. What starts as an experiment turns into matter of greed and deception which ends when one of the students commit suicide.


Though Sir Ben Kingsley got lots of media coverage while talking about the movie. In reality, his role is very short. He is just a listener. Script of the movie is another weakness. Sometimes the characters say these dialogues but it does not make any sense. Director Leena Yadav tried to reveal the dark side of gambling and tried to create an environment surrounded by rich and greedy people which did not look very convincing. In 21, the movie from which Teen Patti’s story has been taken, shows an evil professor using his students. Here, the two professors, target students with troubled pasts.


Both Ben Kingsley and Amitabh Bachchan played their role very well. Madhavan was fine with his role. Among the four new characters, Dhruv Ganesh got lots of exposure but others did not have much presence in the movie.

Amitabh Bachchan and Ben Kingsley star in Teen Patti

Teen Patti, a thriller movie, is going to release in theatres today. The story of “Teen Patti” has been inspired from Kevin Spacey starrer drama film “21.” Only the main story has been taken from the movie, while the setting has been entirely changed. “Teen Patti” stars Amitabh Bachchan and Ben Kingsley two most famous actors of the eastern and western cinema.


Earlier, rumor spread out that British actor, Pierce Brosnan, would play a role in the movie. A portion of the movie was shot in London. Teen Patti tells the story of a group of genious people who lost their ways into greed and deception. Ben Kingsley played the role of Perci Trachtenberg, who is considered to be one of the greatest mathematicians in the world. Trachtenberg met Prof. Venkat Subramaniam, a reclusive but talented math professor from India at a high rolling casino in London where Venkat tells Perci about his discovery and the suffering it brought into his life.


Venkat told Perci that he discovered a math theory that would change the world of mathematics forever. Venkat’s new theory would redefine the principles of probability and randomness. He wanted to test his new theory in the real world after being persuaded by professor Shantanu at the game of teen patti, a poker game. However, what started as an experiment turned out to be serious game of life and death.

Teen Patti: Dhruv Ganesh was very nervous facing the camera for the first time

Along with established movie actors, Teen Patti also stars four newbies. One of them is Dhruv Ganesh. His skinny appearance makes him a standout in the group.


Dhruv Ganesh hails from Delhi. His father served in the Indian air force. So, Dhruv has been moving around all over India including Wellington (South India), Adampur (Punjab), Delhi, Kalaikunda (West Bengal) Mumbai, Allahabad, Ahmedabad and Baroda. From an early, Dhruv Ganesh has been involved in theatres. Since, he wanted to have a career in acting, Bombay was his first choice. He came to heard about the audition of Teen Patti through a friend and auditioned for the movie. It was a very rigorous process. In the movie, Dhruv Ganesh played the role of a small town boy named, Bikram Ashwin Dhar, who comes from a conservative family and wants to have a degree and secure a better job.


From a very young age, Dhruv Ganesh suffered from stage fright and this created a very big problem when he faced the camera but Rani Dharkar helped him a lot. She directed his first play. A private person, Dhruv love to play games and watching movies. Aamir Khan’s Raang De Basanti was one of his favorite films because the movie tells the tragic story of an Indian air force pilot and Dhruv’s father was also a pilot.

Katrina Kaif fight with Prakash Jha for saree color in the upcoming Hindi movie “Rajneeti”

Katrina Kaif is the only female star in the star studded upcoming Hindi film “Rajneeti”. This film will be released on 4th June 2010. This movie is made based on Indian politics. Shooting of this film is still going on. However, the fight between actress Katrina Kaif and director Prakash Jha has come into the spot light. There was not any important reason behind their fight. The color of a saree created a big problem between them. Katrina Kaif wanted to wear deep color saree because her fans want her to see in a sexy look. But director Prakash Jha asked her to wear off white saree for her role. In this fight Prakash Jha won but it crated much anger in the mind of Katrina Kaif. She said that she did not have any objection in wearing saree for the scene but she expected any lovely and bold color saree which he used to wear in her previous films. I think you know that in India widow often wears this color of saree.

However, Katrina Kaif’s fans can see her demure in the film. I think Katrina Kaif should give more focus on her character rather than sexy image. Day by day she is becoming aged and matured. She should try hard to make herself memorable to her fans.

My Name is Khan is an unsuccessful movie in India

There was much speculation about the success of Shah Rukh Khan’s new movie “My Name is Khan”. However, the reality is different. The truth is that it could not dominate the movie industry more than one or two weeks. May be it could earn huge money in its opening ceremony and it was possible because of Shiv Sena’s publicity. “My Name is Khan” is not going well in India. Despite earning Rs. 90.2 crore in the opening week, its collections have dropped significantly in the next week. This kind of thing was unexpected to SRK fans. It is really a disappointed matter for the cinema hall owners. It is thought that cinema lovers have not found anything interesting or exciting that will attract them to watch this movie second time. Was it the only reason? I don’t think so. I think that people are not interested to see an aged person to act in a lead role. I think you know the story of this movie. It is made based on 9/11 in USA. However, it has already earned its profit in UK and USA and broke box office record.

Did you watch this movie? How was it? Which part in this movie did you like more?

It proves that Hindu extremist group can not affect over it. Millions of people are curious to know the review of this film. The story of this film is based on 9/11 incident in US and how this incident affected in the live of Muslim in USA. The message of this movie is that all Muslims are not terrorists and there is no relation with Muslim and terrorist. Director of this movie, Karan Johar, tries hard to show that there are two types of people live in this world-the good and the bad. The strength of evil power can not defeat good. Good always triumphs the victory at the end. There are a lot of characters but only a few characters have importance to move the story ahead and lead to the climax.

At the beginning of this film you can see a child named Rizwan Khan. Rizwan Khan is an autistic child. He stays with his mother in Borivali, Mumbai. When he grows older and becomes adult, he movies to San Francisco to live with his brother and sister-in-law. He falls in love with Mandira. Before going to marry her, Rizwan Khan had to face a strong protest by his brother. After their marriage they started a small business. Everything was going well until September 11. Because of terrorist attack in USA, both Rizwan and Mandira had to face many difficulties. At a time, they got separated. To get her love back Rizwan left home and embark on a long journey across the US.

Both Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol acted well. Their acting touches the heart of movie lovers. After a long gap Kajol and Shah Rukh made pair in a movie. Kajol was awesome. I will not be surprised if Shah Rukh Khan or his co-stars are nominated for Oscar award.

Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan will act together in a film?

I have never seen Big B Amitabh Bachchan acting together with perfectionist Aamir Khan in any film. I have doubt that if anyone see these two big stars in one frame. However, if they do not act together then Hindi movie fans can see them soon in one film. Recently, Amitabh Bachchan went to Aamir Khan’s house to show respect to his father’s death. Before leaving the place he offered Aamir to direct a film for him. You should want to know that what Aamir said. However, Aamir Khan accepted this opportunity by nodding his head up and down. I have not found that in which film these two actors will act together. Even like others I am also excited to know the public opinion. How they will accept them in one movie?

Review of Bollywood Movie Striker

Title: Striker

Director: Chandan Arora

Cast: Siddharth, Aditya Pancholi, Anupam Kher, Padmapriya


On February 5, 2010 Chandan Arora’s “Striker” was released in theaters. The movie stars Siddharth, after four years since last appearance in “Rang De Basanti”. Striker is a medium budget movie. The story of the movie is set in the nineties Mumbai underworld and also related to post-Ayodhya communal riots of 1992. Surya (Siddharth) is rebellious young boy but his ill health is his main problem. He can not attend school properly. It was his elder brother who introduces him to carrom and from a very young age he develops a liking towards carrom and becomes a very good carrom player. However, Siddarth dreams to go to Dubai and earn money. He works for three years and gathers enough money to go Dubai. But the employment agency who was supposed to send him to Dubai was a fake one and it took away all his money. This brought him to Jaleel (Aditya Pancholi), one of the most notorious gangsters of that area who also runs a carrom betting racquet. Eventually, Surya beats Jaleel and comes out as a winner. The movie starts with a very promising note. The story was good in the beginning but it failed to hook the audience for a long time. After a promising start the story goes horribly starts to follow the regular Hindi movie cliché type of story telling and this became the major problem with Striker. You will enjoy the beginning of the movie but as it goes on you will start to loss interest. It is a movie that has been stretched out for nothing. Chandan Arora is a very experienced director. He did movies like Main, Meri Patni Aur Woh (2005) and Main Madhuri Dixit Banna Chahti Hoon (2003). He also edited Company, the famous movie of Ram Gopal Varma. Chandan Arora’s story telling style is very swift. However, the Striker story is nothing very extra ordinary. So, it failed to captivate the audience. However, some of the scenes in the movie were very well shoot that the carrom rounds between Surya and Jaleel were very intense then the movie also captured the nineties in a very detailed and also captured the underworld and people. Overall Striker could have been a decent movie if Chandan Arora paid more attention to the script.

Director of Striker film Chandan Arora is a fan of football. If he is the supporter of Chelsea or Arsenal then he should not miss tomorrow’s important match between Chelsea and Arsenal.

Aishwarya Rai is the highest paid actress

If you ask me who is the highest paid actress in Bollywood. Then, my answer is that “I don’t know”. Whatever the record it is and whoever makes this record, it is perhaps going to be broken by heartthrob actress Aishwarya Rai. Recently, Aishwarya Rai has been offered a whopping of Rs. 10 crores for a film. This enormous money was offered by producer Bobby Pushkarna. Bobby Pushkarna offered Bollywood beauty Aishwarya Rai such amount of money for his new film “Page 3”. Do you know who Bobby Pushkarna is? He is the son of veteran film producer Baldev Pushkarna. If Aishwarya Rai sings for this movie then she will overtake Kareena Kapoor who covered the headlines after for signing at Rs 7 crore mark.

This news should inspire all female actresses in Indian movie industry. It also proves that the control of all male actors is being reduced in India. At a time female actress were behind than male actors in the price money and power. But now they have become hard competitors against Bollywood actors.
