Finding Fanny – Finding whaaaaa….aat!?!?   Leave a comment

Finding Fanny!? WTF! .. I was like finding ……. what? Why would anybody name a movie called Finding fanny!? This was the reaction when i heard that Bollywood’s making a movie named Finding Fanny! A film directed by Homi Adajania of Being Cyrus, Cocktail shame. Well Finding Fanny is not about finding fanny it is about finding ferdie’s lost love Stefanie Fernandes, the fanny who inconsequentially turns to be a cause for a road-trip that which brings five goan dysfunctional characters+ A Dead Narcoleptic pussycat together to find and search the essence, meaning love! As per the tagline – if you’re looking for love.. get lost! FTW!!

The five principle characters are as follows:

Don pedro Celto Colaco (Pankaj Kapur): A fetish Painter, desperate for a muse who believes Round is not a shape, it’s a way of life and will climb the highest peaks for inspiration.

Rosie Eucharistica(Dimple Kapadia) : Considers herself the ‘first lady’ of the village , who believes her scrumptious posterior is as round as golbe.. or rather is the Globe to which don perdo is resolutely convinced that it is indeed his ticket to glory! Plus, she squeezes her feet into tight heels so she can walk the walk.

Ferdie (Naseeruddin Shah): Loner , choirboy singer who States the obvious but never sees the obvious , he Loves Singing and is totally tuneless.

Savio Da Gama (Arjun Kapoor): Bombay-returned-confused-goan Broke and Embittered mechanic, he Just can’t say what’s in his heart.

And Last is the those endless legs and oozing hotness of Deepika padukone ❤ ❤ ❤I.e Angie – who is surprisingly smiley for a virgin widow, and who has child-like curiosity about everything around her.

Footnote: Finding fanny is bullshit!! Just like the kids who flipped their middle finger at Savio, I too want to do the same to Homi Adajania, It does not even stay true to what it proclaims, never makes an attempt to state the obvious meaning. Nevertheless, the cinematography and background score is top notch!

.. and Just like its spoof , finding fanny is just about goa and deepika, because it has goa that you have never seen before and it has deepikas eternal hotness and her bare-back!

.. and as a final point, Deepikas effervescent, captivating remark to Savio: “You know sometimes, sometimes savio… you need to make an effort to find love”, is the one and only truth!!

Queen – Maine hothon se lagaayi to……   Leave a comment

Rani: Haye meri first night, Parso hogi na…  shaayad Bahaut dar lag raha hai. Hey Vaishno Devi, agar sab kuchh achche se ho gaya na, to main Vijay ke saath aapke darshan karne aaungi. ;)

There are very few movies in bollywood that has made me smile all through its run time, the latest addition is Vikas Bahl’s Queen, it isn’t eye-opener sorts or ground-breaking, However it has mithaiwala ingredients which consistently entertain and also encourages audience to actively support in Rani’s coming of age.

In a nutshell, Queen is a movie which focuses on a conservative Punjabi girl who due to unfortunate turn of events, sets out on a solo honeymoon. As a result she discovers her persona, liberating herself from preconceived elicited notions. The movie tiptoes solidly on a well written screenplay, characters. Eg: Rani’s granny, – Cocktail rehearsals and the way she expresses her compassion referring to her ex-paki-boyfriend Faisal – as good as it can get! ;) Ms Ranaut in an interview described that she had to prepare herself for role “Queen is different from me. She has no confidence, no self-respect; she can’t stand for herself. She is scared to make a mistake and even asks questions timidly. I had to work hard to get her body language right.” She pulls it off which such panache that clichés of second half (Amsterdam Blah blah) hardly matter.

00Queen

Though the movie was entertaining, I pondered over the questions like: why does one have to draw an inspiration from west to connect themselves, attain sexual maturity or develop clarity? Why didn’t Mr. Bahl ponder on such issues with the help of local nuances? Why Amsterdam or Paris? Why not Manali or Leh? Well it was just a passing thought during the movie’s runtime and it completely drained away when climax arrived: before heading home from Airport, Rani expresses her willingness to meet Vijay, she s now brimming with confidence and without saying much, she returns her engagement ring and unreservedly thanks him for rejecting her :) and credits starts to roll… Dekho na logo ne , Botalon ki botalein khatam kar di to kuchh na hua, …. Magar … magar… Maine hothon se lagaayi to…… Hungama ho gaya!!! I smiled incessantly and came out of the moviehall, humming “Hungaaama.. Hungama Ho gayaaaa!!” :D oh! It just perfectly blended with Rani’s naivety..

Only after watching the movie, I took great interest of film’s soundtrack which is simply brilliant, every song is composed as per its requirements and lyrics from Anvita Dutt is just phenomenal, esp Harjaiyaan and London Thumakda. And everytime i listen to it,  the movie grows on me, it evokes stark realities of Rani’s metamorphosis and for that i really have to thank Ms.Ranaut for accurately portraying roller-coaster of emotions, advertently leading to one of the best performance of her career.

Shuddh Desi Romance – Refreshingly Desi!   Leave a comment

I never ever thought i’d be fond of cheesy movies like Band Baja Baaraat, Bunty Aur Babli, I think it is because of its faithful, as-is portrayal of relationships, very modern yet Desi! And in all probability, I find that element, ingredient to be Super-Duper-Uber-Cool, because it really adds that extra zing, liveliness!! In view with that, a friend of mine recommended, brand new Yash Raj banner film (sorta loathe yash raj banners) called Shudd Desi Romance, and to my surprise I just loved the movie! Neither had watched trailers nor had listened to its soundtrack, had zero knowledge of its technical crew and that entire yawn, so when I digged info, the results were really astonishing, impressive. Story, Screenplay, Dialogues and Lyrics for Shudd Desi Romance are written by Jaideep Sahni of Jungle, Company, Bunty Aur Babli, Khosla Ka Ghosla, Chak De India, Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year fame, wow such an impressive map! And it is directed by Maneesh Sharma of Band Baaja Baaraat, Ladies vs Ricky Bahl fame. So, there you go… I hadn’t realized that, Shudd Desi Romance was a product from Jaideep-Maneesh combo.

SDR is unlike any other Romantic comedy movie, that’s because it addresses issues like, live-in relationships, its consequent marriage commitments, its consequent betrayal, modern outlook v/s traditional values of the youth from alleged ‘small towns’, all of which Mr Sahni beautifully summates : “I’m fascinated by cities like Jaipur, Lucknow, Indore, Kochi, which are the engines that are running India. They are different from the metros, which are world cities that operate on another level from the rest of the country. They are not the ‘small towns’ Bollywood thinks they are and portrays them to be, just because people in them speak Hindi more than they do English. These are places buzzing with energy, where things are actually happening. The funny thing about these places is that the youngsters here have their feet in two boats: the traditional and desi, and the modern. You have a guy selling kachori who has two mobile phones. You have a dupatta salesman who can convert currencies and talk to tourists in seven different languages—to the extent his profession demands. It’s really exciting for me, as a storyteller, to see how young people try to navigate their love lives in these environments, with some following the traditional mindset (but only to an extent), and some breaking out of it completely and experimenting with relationships.”

Truthfully, I sort-aa have experienced this: a guy selling kachori who has two mobile phones, a dupatta salesman who can convert currencies and talk to tourists in seven different languages and I really do understand why Mr.Sahani wants to describe their love lives, because there are conflicts in it, which are genuine and refining, that simply sparkle than a fixated traditional romance, added to that there’s humor too and that makes all the difference!!

0SDR1

The movie begins with a fantastic monologue from Raghuram Sitaram (Sushant Singh Rajput) and in a sherwani, he looks perplexed, sincerely talks about love, marriage, commitment. I just loved the dialogue… “… toh dekhna hi padega na, Apne hisab se ladkiyan bhi dekh rahe hote hain… Unke be.. (pause) Armaan hote hain” hahahahaha, I was like… he was going to say what he would’ve thought otherwise :D These subtle pauses or silence in a monologue are so imperative, that they make ordinary look extraordinary. Then after chanchal mann, ati random opening credits, camera focuses on the signboard Goel Caterers, Decorators – Jaipur and slowly pans into a street where in the band members are arguing about their skills, Senior Band Memeber: ‘Yeh Desh Hai Veer Jawano ka’ mein ‘Aaj Mera Yaar ki Shaadi hai’ ghusedi na , to wahi rakk-ke.. dunga..  kan ke neeche ! Ghusad! Bwahahaha watta superb line, but the Junior’s reply, is… even more… hilarious: Beedi pee peeke Jo bajaathe unke morale down karthe rathe ho aap , Mein bajaaoon toh kaanon mein pain, aur aap bajaoo toh Tansen?” :D

Soon after, we are introduced to the dulha, i.e Raghuram, his mentor/employer Goel (Rishi Kapoor) and gorgeous Gayatri (Parineeti Chopra). Gayatri and others (raghu’s friends) are called in as substitutes a.k.a fake baraati’s for Raghuram’s wedding. During the journey to Ajmer, Raghuram casually flirts with Gayatri and explains about his dwindling uncertainty for marriage; Gayatri too… loosens up and explains her ex-boyfriends haaton, baaton wala patterns ;) They converse freely without inhibitions and end up kissing each other. Gayatri in her monologue talks on the repercussions and contradictions of arranged marriages: “Aaj shaadi ko haan kardo baad mein sab hojayega , Baarat to waise Gehne check karne ke liye hoti hain, par Shaadiyan mein to… poore hidustan ka jhoot aur double standards baahar ajata hai”  :) and by constructing a candid Shaadi platform, the movie explains the same. Raghu finally chooses to run away from his wedding, from radiant Tara (Vani Kappoor), his yet-to-be wife and that establishes a tone for things to come.

Sahni eloquently adds “There is a kind of oppressiveness in our so-called culture that pinches me. There is hypocrisy and fraud in the name of that all-encompassing word ‘maryada’. And this is a war that millions of youngsters fight every day. I mean, how many lies do girls have to tell every day in order to do what any young woman anywhere else in the world can do as a matter of right? Why is this 5,000-year-old civilisation making the youth lie all the time?

I’m just trying to discuss. I just want to tell my people to breathe, and let the young be, and let them discover things on their own. These are the guys who’ll be running the country 10 years from now, because youngsters from the metros will fly away to America. It’s these kids who are the cutting edge of our swords against feudal traditions.”

0SDR2

.. And he accomplishes, by weaving a simplistic story through myriad of hypocritical intricacies. His characters blend seamlessly with everyday life both mentally, geographically. Kachori, Thalis, Shauchalays, thanda form an integral part of the movie and most of the shots are accompanied by prominent Bollywood songs in background which act as metaphor. There are loads of it to talk because the story is so well written, every dialogue, every shot in the movie is carefully planned and of course brilliantly acted. Sushant Singh Rajput for his panache in womanizing, street smart tomfoolery, Parineeti for her crisp natural fearlessness in personifying modern independent woman, Vani Kapoor for her Gulaabi freshness, practical thinking. Old wine Rishi Kapoor for his skillful supporting role (am sure it’ll bring him accolades). Editing (Namrata Rao) is top notch, circumstanced Music (Sachin – Jigar) is perky, there are only two songs in the movie which the tenacious ladies share a piece with puckish Rajput. There’s repetitiveness (dialogues) too, but it adds unbridled charm. Monologues are the soul which unreservedly delves into the depths of the protagonists minds. Of all, I felt Tara’s Azzad hogayi was insanely mature, sensible.

But what enamored me most about SDR is its exposed perennial confusion (intended). The women depicted in the movie Talk! They are Smart, decisive, practical, and have backbone. Regardless of domineering charisma, there are unsettling confusions, flaws which really shape innate contours of their heart and make it charming, beautiful.

۞ Subhanallah :D :D perfect Timing!
Θ Bhoota parvart: Bhoota matlab haunted … hahahahhahahahaha, Bahirav mandir – isn’t it obvious the couple want to cash in on mandir’s blessings.
۞ A perfect platform for the love birds to venture out.
Θ Naina: “Wahan us pahaad ki hawaan mein nasha sa tha! Aur woh nasha ishq tha! Watta dialogue it felt like Cadbury’s Silk: melted in my mouth, traveled down my throat and warmed my heart :D :P

۞ He has the Pixar book up in the mountains! Only to prove that he wants to travel around the world and use really heavy words: raftaar, pagalpan, dhamekadar, udna, daudna, girna! My goodness!!

۞ Naina: “8 saal beet gaye hai, ausne kabhie mudke nahi dekha, aur maine intezar bhi nahi kiya “– very pragmatic I say!
Θ Ilahi song: wooo… haa…so plastic, so pseudo!! It feels as if they have shooting a AD for an SLR! And Mr.Thapar feels the essence of a place by smelling high! Plus he gets a French babe to do kuchikuuu! Friggin’ Lucky bastard!!
۞ I think he works for a firm which develop maps for Google Street view :D
Θ Roflol, see….. you’re absolutely enjoying the movie.
۞ Riya: (Highly accented angrezi) whatchya looking at kabir? Bunny: waqt to guzarte.. Riya: (Highly accented hindi) banajarepan se ishq.. My gwwwadd!
Θ Riya mentions an offer that Bunny cant refuse, 3 months in Paris, Tokyo, Istanbul and Berlin – as a host, say yes BABE! Baaaaaaaah!!!

Imagine if Ian Wright (Discovery’s Lonely Planet) saw this movie, he’d be insanely ashamed and he would’ve gladly drowned in his own pee!!
۞ Ah, to add more glitz : its Aditi’s wedding in Udaipur!

۞ Your wishes are granted! They kiss indeed… Watta perfect landscape!
Θ Never expected this – Deepika’s enlightening monologue is good, Rekha Bharadwaj for Kabira maan jaaAnna Kabir… FTW! Jaldi se maan jaa…  halcat!
۞ Hero had to leave, get enlightened in the airport and had to return to home! And there’s Farooq Shaikh –  sensible monologue!
Θ Bunny’s reconciliation with his step-mother (Tanvi Azmi) “Usko pata tha ki: Apni marzi se jeene ki keemat kya hoti hai” – not bad!
۞ Another brining together scene – this time it’s with Naina, Bunny: “Na boldiya unko, tuje haan jo bolna tha! ” :D, they pop the champagne and they lived happily ever after!
Θ It had to end with Nautanki isn’t it!
Θ Yet with commercialized screenplay, Ayan has handled relationships well and there isn’t much of a drama element into it.
۞ Yup, but movie’s void of intense feelings and there’s nothing that stimulates you except those songs, they are fun!
Θ Indeed, though they deviate from narration, they are outstanding! It is what bollywood’s famous for.
Θ It is worth investing money in bollywood isn’t it? You gotta take lessons from it. Just look at the returns… The movie has  made a staggering 284 % profit!!
۞ Dumb Geniuses?!
Θ Perfect oxymoron!
Θ Moral of the story: Kabhie kabhie… You gotta watch these sorta movies, sehat ke liye achha rahtha hai!
۞ Dittavada Maatu …  :)

58th Filmfare Awards 2012 – Predictions   Leave a comment

The Indian film industry will mark its centenary celebrations this year. Also, Filmfare Awards will turn 60 in 2014. Therefore to celebrate this unique achievement, organizers of 58th Filmfare Awards 2012 have decided to go the Hollywood way, i.e integrate gold gold and bestow the special trophy to the awardees.

2012 has been really good year for the bollywood for the fact that most of the movies were non-conventional eg, Gangs Of Wasseypur, Kahaani , Paan Singh Tomar, Vicky Donor. With shoestring budget and terrific screenplay, they were really authentic, straightforward and very Indian. These movies have created a new trend in the bollywood industry and directors are striving hard to soak audience in neo-Indianness. The classic example: In GOW, Angurag Kashyap expresses his gratitude to tamil cinema for inspiring him to get back to his roots.

Ok, here we go with the predictions

0kahaani

Best Film

  • Barfi!
  • English Vinglish
  • Gangs Of Wasseypur
  • Kahaani
  • Vicky Donor

Barfi! , English Vinglish – heartwarming and too trendy, GOW – Brilliant filmmaking, Vicky Donor – superb concept, but I ll go with Kahaani – though the climax is very similar of to Jolie’s Taking Lives, Kahaani with its own uniqueness,  simply dazzles. It’s a fantastic thriller which mesmerizes you with the brilliant performances and cinematography.

Best Director

  • Anurag Basu – Barfi!
  • Anurag Kashyap – Gangs Of Wasseypur
  • Gauri Shinde – English Vinglish
  • Shoojit Sircar – Vicky Donor
  • Sujoy Ghosh – Kahaani

I have to pick Sujoy Ghosh as Best Director 2012 for depicting Kolkatta as a central character in Kahaani.

Best Actor in a Leading Role (Female)

  • Deepika Padukone – Cocktail
  • Kareena Kapoor – Heroine
  • Parineeti Chopra – Ishqazaade
  • Priyanka Chopra – Barfi!
  • Sridevi – English Vinglish
  • Vidya Balan – Kahaani

Omitted in the list is Rani Mukerjee for Aiyya.
Miss Padukone was damn hot in Cocktail, KK didn’t carry Chameli’s essence in Heroine, Parineeti was bold, refreshing in Ishqazaade, PC – big dud in Barfi! Sridevi was all refined, brilliant in English Vinglish. Nonetheless, without any kind of doubt, Best Actor in a Leading Role (Female) is “My name is Vidya Bagchi ..V.. ” :) has to go to Vidya Balan for her gritty role in Kahaani.

filmfare1

Best Actor in a Leading Role (Male)

  • Hrithik Roshan – Agneepath
  • Irrfan Khan – Paan Singh Tomar
  • Manoj Bajpayee – Gangs Of Wasseypur
  • Ranbir Kapoor – Barfi!
  • Salman Khan – Dabangg – 2
  • Shah Rukh Khan – Jab Tak Hai Jaan

Shah Rukh, Salman Khan – Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Dabangg – 2  ?!!?? Duh!! Cut Me Some Slack!! Where’s Nawazuddin Siddiqui for GOW?  Paresh Rawal for Oh my God! ?? They thoroughly deserved to be nominated and had absolutely earned it . So, that leaves me with three options and I’ll go with Irrfan Khan for brilliant performance in Paan Singh Tomar.

Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Female)

  • Anushka Sharma – Jab Tak Hai Jaan
  • Huma Qureshi – Gangs Of Wasseypur
  • Ileana D’Cruz – Barfi!
  • Rani Mukerjee – Talaash
  • Richa Chadda – Gangs Of Wasseypur

Anushka was all hippity hoppity in JTHJ, Ileana – naively beautiful in Barfi! Nothing much of Ms Mukerjee in Talaash, Huma Qureshi’s solid portrayal of Frustiyaao nahin moora, Upsettaao nahin moora was superb, but have pick Richa Chadda for her role as Nagma Khatoon , she has faithfully endorsed the notions of factual rustic identity which is in itself a very difficult thing to achieve in contemporary cinema.

0DrChadda

Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Male)

  • Akshay Kumar – Oh My God!
  • Annu Kapoor – Vicky Donor
  • Emraan Hashmi – Shanghai
  • Nawazuddin Siddiqui – Talaash
  • Rishi Kapoor – Agneepath

It has to be Annu Kapoor (Dr. Baldev Chaddha – MD, Infertility specialist) for his outstanding role in  Vicky Donor and this has to be the dialogue of the year Dr. Baldev Chaddha with his finger reflexes, inimitable panache to Vicky Arora: “Shakal dekh kar bande ka sperm pehchan jaata hu.. Aise DNA aryan race ke dekhe gaaye hain..Tu, pure aryan race hai..Aryan puttar hai.. Bhenchod!”  ;) :D

Best Music Director

  • Amit Trivedi – Ishqazaade
  • Pritam – Barfi!
  • Pritam – Cocktail
  • Sneha Khanwalkar – Gangs Of Wasseypur
  • Vishal – Shekhar – Student Of The Year

7 music collaborations in 2012 and 11 albums still to be released for 2013 and yet Pritam does not run out of steam and I really wonder how he manages it! Pritam is the winner this time for his exquisite, soulful music for Barfi!

Best Lyrics

  • Amitabh Bhattacharya – Abhi mujh mein kahin – Agneepath
  • Gulzar – Challa – Jab Tak Hai Jaan
  • Gulzar – Saans – Jab Tak Hai Jaan
  • Javed Akthar – Jee le zara – Talaash
  • Swanand Kirkire – Aashiyan – Barfi!

Check out the names, Gulzar, Javed Akthar – bollywood’s most celebrated lyricists and added to that Swanand Kirkire, Amitabh Bhattacharya – National Film Award winners (Best Lyrics) , I would’ve also included Amitabh Bhattacharya’s Rabta in this list and on the other hand will hesitantly elect to choose Abhi mujh mein kahin for Best Lyrics fof 2012.

songs

Best Playback Singer (Male)

  • Ayushmann Khurrana – Pani da rang – Vicky Donor
  • Mohit Chauhan – Ala barfi – Barfi!
  • Nikhil Paul George – Main kya karoon – Barfi!
  • Rabbi – Challa – Jab Tak Hai Jaan
  • Sonu Nigam – Abhi mujh mein kahin – Agneepath

This list’s a bit inadequate… particularly missing are, Javed Ali for Ishaqzaade , Javed Bashir for Kahaani and KK for Jannat2  and out of the lot I’ll go with Nigam’s Abhi mujh mein kahin. However I still believe Roop Kumar Rathod’s O Saiyyan was better than Nigam’s quintessential poignancy.

Best Playback Singer (Female)

  • Kavita Seth – Tumhi ho bandhu – Cocktail
  • Neeti Mohan – Jiya re – Jab Tak Hai Jaan
  • Shalmali Kholgade – Pareshaan – Ishaqzaade
  • Shreya Ghoshal – Saans – Jab Tak Hai Jaan
  • Shreya Ghoshal – Chikni chameli – Agneepath

It’s tricky again, Seth modulations for Tumhi ho bandhu – exceptional!! And so is Neeti’s bubbly tempo for Jiya re, and I am short of superlatives for Shreya’s voice , it’s the most perfect thing, notice that contrast Saans – a patho love song and Chikni chameli – item number and she makes it look so… easy!!! But this time have to pick Shalmali Kholgade – dubbed as the newest Bollywood singing sensation, made her dream entry in Ishaqzaade lending her opulent voice for the dreamy lyrical “Pareshaan” which is just sumptuously delicious.

Cocktail – C loves B, B loves A, Finally: A, B, C make an item number.   1 comment

Homi Adajania (Director): It was always called Cocktail ever since Imtiaz wrote the story. It’s not got anything to do with the booze angle. The name represents the concept of a mix. For me the title Cocktail signifies the mix of ingredients that friends and lovers use the complete each other’s incompleteness.

≥≥: Complete each other’s incompleteness! :D :D Ghanta sala… Chalo, lets at-least get the booze angle of deepika who is ooooooooooOOOOOOOOO! Sultry Hot in Red Bikini ;)
≤≤: Diana Penty is gorgeously cute! Ah only if Penty belonged to faction of the uber-cool extravagant: ‘Penthouse’ :) :)
≥≥: Please God, make our wishes come true. I will not download the mag from piratebay. I swear that I will pay money for it. Please…
≤≤: Btw, Pritam’s music is just fine, but this time I really dunno… where he’s ripped it from. :P
≥≥: ok, let’s check out Cock-tail.
≤≤: Phew! Housefull!?! Look… Eros again!!! And Illuminati films with a Lion logo?! Why lion ?!
≥≥: whoa! Penty a.k.a Meera is equipped with Marriage certificate in London’s heathrow!! Watta opening! (It’s symbolic meaning only to be explained later.)
≤≤:  whenever I recognize Agent Vinod (Gautam), he always reminds me of that Petrol bunk guy (courtesy: Facebook) :P Btw, cheap, sleazy, dim-witted dialogues to make a good impression on pious Meera.
≥≥: Kunal (Randeep Hooda), Meera’s husband refuses to take her home! Although meera’s Soni Kudi.. Namkeen Badi ?!?
≤≤: “Kudi kanwaari ho gayi jhalli .. Nachi jaandi kalli kalli…”phew! Miss Padukone’s insanely hot!! And I want to pee……
≥≥: So, Meera meets Veronica – ‘the rich bitch’, waaw DP+DP,  Chak de phatte, nap de killi.. :)
≤≤: After Booze, drink milk!!  DP1 warning DP2.. “Saanp ko doodh pila rahe ho beta” :P
≥≥: Yet again, Agent Vinod presses on with another hee-haw pickup line “I was just thinking ke aap believe karte hain love at first site main…yaan main dobara ghoom ke aayun” this time its targeted to his cute female manager!! Yappah!
≤≤: The DP gang bumps into Agent Vinod in a restaurant (Obvious) and DP1 shouts “I’m carrying his bun in my oven”!!?!?!
≥≥: Time for a break: Yo! Party sharty song, DP1 and Agent Vinod practicing smooth-as-silk, cock-tail arts : Coochi-Coochi-Coo.
≤≤: Agent Vinod (munching popcorn) to pious Meera “I’m oozing charm”,  “you’re lonely-I’m characterless” :P: D Grosssssss!!
≥≥: Agent Vinod’s Nickname is “Gutlu”his uncle’s (Boman Irani) name is “Tinku” :D (Courtesy: Dimple Kapadia)
≤≤: “Tinku, bulb change kar doTinku, eh karo..woh karo..” Absolutely Hilarious! :D :D
≥≥: Time for a break: to celebrate “awesome threesomeness” song: Chadhi mujhe yaari teri aisi.. Jaise daaru desi..
≤≤: DP1 to DP2 “Tumne is makaan ko ghar banaya hai”… Ayyooooooo… Aiooooo…
≥≥: Blimey! DP2 secures a graphic design job without any proven-talent!?!?!?!
≤≤: Agent Vinod providing entertainment to DP’s via sheila ki jawani!! Really good thinking HA, he fits quite superbly in the approved manner.
≥≥: Incidentally, DK arrives at the scene and is in awe over Agent Vinod’s oozzing Transsexualism.
≤≤: DK scorns at DP1 but likes DP2 and is under an impression that A.Vinod is in relationship with DP2! Who wrote the bloody script!!! Imitaz Ali+Sajid Ali!! Perhaps he is still depressed over the recent kaput of Rockstar.
≥≥: Duh! They set off on a holiday! Over to Capetown.


≤≤: The mundane goofing around, partying exemplified…
≥≥: DK’s Menopause line… Brilliant Acting!
≤≤: Agent Vinod again bores with Shameless Pickup Lines “Postcard shot hain tumhari aankhein” , “Aur tumhari smile, haaye, social service hain tumhari smile” and this one’s a roflol : “itne saare kapre pehnti ho, lekin sochne wala sochega, ke woh kya hain, jo tum chupa rahi ho” hahahahahaaahaaa :D
≥≥: Time for a break again: tumhi ho bandhu.. Blah Blah Blah..
≤≤: DK’s is now fond of DP1: Tu ladki acchi hai..bas dhang ke kapde pehna kar!! Typical!!
≥≥: A.Vinod falls in love with DP2; DP1 now wants to get married to A.Vinod!! – Silly.. Sillier.. Silliest..
≤≤: A.Vinod must be in fact a happy man, 2 DP’s now want to have an awesome threesome but NO!! He foolishly decides to stick with DP2!!
≥≥: DP1 suggests DP2: “He’s great in bed”, “Lets Share him” (A really wise choice) but after few shots gets all too possessive and thups at DP2.
≤≤:  Ultra sensitive DP2 disappears and rejoins with Kunal (Ah! The heart-wrenching sacrifice!!!!!!)
≥≥:  DP1 gets all lovey-dovey and prepares mutton biryani for A.Vinod!! :D :D
≤≤: However, A.Vinod still pursues DP2, therefore DP1 is all Oh dum gutkoon, dum gutkoon, dum gutkoon, dum gootkun, gutkun.. Breaks glasses, drinks heavily and consequently: a speeding gaddi usko tokoh diya!!
≥≥: Tattered, Battered in perennial love for DP1 and DP2, A.Vinod takes refuge on a bench!! :D :D
≤≤: Meanwhile Kunal and DP2 celebrate Indian win over England (Cricket) !!! Ah unbearable foolishness!!
≥≥: DP1 recovers from the fatal accident and sensually advocates A.Vinod to go after DP2!! Whoa… none can do better than Ms.Red!!
≤≤: To know whereabouts of DP2, A.Vinod fights with Kunal!! There had to be at-least one fight scene in the movie… It’s his own production for god’s sake!! :D
≥≥: Kunal reveals DP2’s yearning: “Yeh breakfast aur yeh coffee main sirf Gautam ke saath kar sakti hoon aur yeh kabhi kissi ko pata nahin chalna chahiye!” Yappaahhhhh… Sati Savitri, Please forgive me!!!
≤≤: Final Scene: DP1 and A.Vinod chase DP2 to Delhi and they all execute an item number – Second hand jawani. Yayyyyy!!!!

With a glitzy budget encompassing some of the finest technical talents (Sreekar Prasad, Anil Mehta) Cocktail does not even attempt to distribute any kind of nasha. Accompanied by lack of common sense, the movie exhausts you with the tried and tested clichés that are appallingly horrendous. I would have been more than happy if Ambassador Cars were intentionally made to run over on ‘Awesome Threesome’ (Final Scene: Delhi) for providing loathsome entertainment.

57th Annual Filmfare awards Predictions   2 comments

57th Annual Filmfare awards will be held on Jan 29, 2012 and it’s a special occasion where Indian film industry will be entering its 100th year. Consequently, 2500th Black Lady will be given out on the occasion and Imran Khan will be the host for 57th Annual Filmfare awards.

Was 2011 a good year for Bollywood?
Monetary wise, of course because there were number of big budget movies with big hopes and also did big business. Expertise, a big YES, bolloywood’s become sophisticated with modern technology, the posters, art work and editing has grown in stature. However the presentation and the quality in movie making is more or less the same, there isn’t any such movie which you’ll go gaga over.

Nominees for the year 2011

Best Film

  • Delhi Belly
  • Don 2
  • No One Killed Jessica
  • Rockstar
  • The Dirty Picture
  • Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

Delhi Belly – oh too urbane and gooey, Don 2 – Watta Climax! Too stylish and too good to be a bollywood movie, No One Killed Jessica – thodi si kameeni, thodi namkeeni Thodi si nasheeli, thodi zehreeli … hai saala hatt ! ­ Rockstar – too much meddling on the subject How Robert Plant or Jim Morrison behaved on stage. The Dirty Picture – wasn’t efficiently dirty enough to showcase any kind of superlative values which it could’ve, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara prolly will walk away with the best picture because The framework and the scenarios were so neat, orderly, spick and span and well-groomed, I do agree to the fact that movie does have some genuine moments, however it gets bleached when you look at the movie in one piece and I still declare ZNMD: is one of the best bollywood chick flicks till date.

Best Director

  • Abhinay Deo – Delhi Belly
  • Farhan Akhtar – Don2
  • Imtiyaz Ali – Rockstar
  • Milan Luthria – The Dirty Picture
  • Raj Kumar Gupta – No One Killed Jessica
  • Zoya Akhtar – Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

Zoya will walk away with the black lady for her movie which struggles too hard to be cool.

Best Actor In A Leading Role (Male)

  • Ajay Devgan – Singham
  • Amitabh Bachchan – Aarakshan
  • Hrithik Roshan – Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
  • Ranbir Kapoor – Rockstar
  • Salman Khan – Bodyguard
  • Shahrukh Khan – Don2

Archetypal Ajay as Inspector Bajirao M. Singham for Singham, Mohabattein’s Narayan Shankar soul was stamped in Amitabh’s Prabhakar Anand in Aarakshan, Salman Khan amplifies stupidity as Lovely B. Singh in Bodyguard , I would say Hiritik, Ranbir and Shahrukh have done justice to the characters , they’ve filled Arjun, Janardhan Jakhar, Don respectively with high-spirited passion imbued with great deal of confidence. If SRK wins it’d be his 9th one, OMG! a new filmfare record! If Hrithik wins it’d be his 5th, but I want Ranbir to win because for the fact that his showcasing of talents in transitioning from Janardhan Jakhar to Jordan was really challenging and demanding, he had to be a naïve immature job hi mein and turn into tera pyaar.. teri waah…tu hi rakh.. also he handled it remarkably well.

                         Best Actor In A Leading Role (Female)

Katrina Kaif – Mere Brother Ki Dulhan
Mahie Gill – Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster
Priyanka Chopra – 7 Khoon Maaf
Vidya Balan – No One Killed Jessica
Vidya Balan – The Dirty Picture

Oh Chikni Chameli can act!?!?! Mahie Gill as Begum as saheb’s biwi is one of the bravest performance in Indian commercial cinema, with her oozing sex appeal… she’s just perfect for the role. Susanna Anna-Marie Johannes could’ve/should’ve put more efforts to her well defined murderous role. The sensual Vidya nominated for No One Killed Jessica as well as The Dirty Picture, by engaging in such roles she’s proving to be very versatile and will prolly walk away with the precious.
Best Actor In A Supporting Role (Male)

Abhay Deol – Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
Farhan Akhtar – Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
Naseeruddin Shah – The Dirty Picture
Pitobash Tripathy – Shor In The City
Vir Das – Delhi Belly

Farhan was more natural than Hirthik and Abhay in ZNMD but it was all bout being showy, trendy. Mr Shah as chauvinistic Surya Kant did really good job and Vir Das moment of glory was Ja Chudail which was absolutely hilarious! Of all the above Pitobash Tripathy’s dumb Mandook was a surprise and beyond doubt deserves the award.

Best Actor In A Supporting Role (Female)

  • Juhi Chawla – IAM
  • Kalki Koechlin – Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
  • Parineeti Chopra – Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl
  • Rani Mukerji – No One Killed Jessica
  • Swara Bhaskar – Tanu Weds Manu

Parineeti Chopra as Dimple Chaddha, the big mouthed Punjabi dhakkan was refreshingly wonderful. Kalki as Natasha and her portrayal as ego-savvy, oh what a pain in the a$$ was terrific! Swara Bhaskar as Payal Sinha was very decent and Juhi as Megha was satisfactory. Rani as Meera Gaity, foul-mouthed assertive journalist was not all that bombastic, it was delightful to watch. Unenthusiastically, I’ll go with bawali – Meera Gaity.

Best Music Director

  • A.R.Rahman – Rockstar
  • Ram Sampat – Delhi Belly
  • Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy – Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
  • Sohail Sen – Mere Brother Ki Dulhan
  • Vishal-Shekhar – RA.One

Ram Sampath: A big applause for brilliant lyrical work and for a fantastic talent of composing music that is fresh and innovative, typical of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy for ZNMD, For Vishal-Shekar, Ra.One is their best ever music compliation, they’ve collaborated with a variety and have experimented with different styles of music, Urbane Sohail Sen’s Choomantar album is a big dud! And the Filmfare for the Best Music Director goes to Mr A R Rahman for Rockstar no second thoughts about that. It is really amazing how Rahman works on unusual sounds, irregular music instruments and his perceptions towards it, unifying them together to fabricate a unique blend of music that is delightfully enchanting.

Best Lyrics

  • Gulzar – Darling – (7 Khoon Maaf)
  • Irshad Kamil – Nadaan parindey – (Rockstar)
  • Irshad Kamil – Sadda haq – (Rockstar)
  • Javed Akhtar – Senorita – (Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara)
  • Vishal Dadlani & Niranjan Iyengar – Chammak challo – (RA.One)

Energetic and comical, Darling was inspired by Russian folk song ‘Kalinka’, The Latino flavored Akhtar’s – Senorita is a half hindi- half Spanish flamenco which is really modish, Chammak challo with its uber cool matio lyrics made just a huge impact and in the end galvanizing poetry characterized by evocative words stand out, this time I would really like Irshad Kamil to get a filmfare in this category. Nadaan parindey and Sadda haq are so intense in their own nature and both carry a sophisticated degree of isolated philosophy into it.

Best Playback Singer (Male)

  • Akon & Vishal Dadlani – Chammak challo (RA.One)
  • Mohit Chauhan – Jo bhi mein (Rockstar)
  • Mohit Chauhan – Sadda haq (Rockstar)
  • Rahat Fateh Ali Khan – Teri Meri (Bodyguard)
  • Shafqat Amanat Ali – Dildaara (RA.One)

This ones really tough, everyone in this category have astonishing talents and have sung with great deal of restrained complexity, the detached voice of Rahat along with Shreya fabricated teri meri into a poignant melancholic love song of the year, Shafqat vocals was absolutely great in Dildaara, Akon with his typical O-oh-oh was thrilling in Chammak challo However I would really go with Mohit because he was stretched and pushed to all kinds of zones by ARR ,  Jo bhi mein has a loads of subtle variations which is so damn complex to modulate , Sadda haq is just the opposite more coarser than Jo bhi mein and Mohit has done exceedingly well.

Best Playback Singer (Female)

  • Alyssa Mendonsa – Khwabon ke parindey (Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara)
  • Harshdeep Kaur – Katiya karu (Rockstar)
  • Rekha Bhardwaj & Usha Uthup Darling (7 Khoon Maaf)
  • Shreya Ghoshal – Teri Meri (Bodyguard)
  • Shreya Ghoshal – Saibo (Shor In The City)

Mendonsa was mellow, romantic and very comforting in Khwabon ke parindey, Harshdeep Kaur was very Groovy with Punjabi locals for Junglee Jawani, ‘Darling’ of Usha Uthup, Rekha Bhardwaj was  inspired by Russian folk song ‘Kalinka’, brilliantly sung by Uthap/Rekha and finally… Shreya Goshal again with 2 nominations and in this category her name ought to be there, otherwise it’ll look dull and out of sorts, Teri meri was phenomenal and beyond that is Saibo, extraordinary intro from Shreya makes a worthy candidate poised to win her 4th Filmfare Award.
