Guzaarish. Hrithik Roshan. In fact the promo reminds me of Black, and somewhere in between Saanwariya and even krrish. But I am getting a feeling that the movie should be good. After all, such a flop as Saanwariya would have given much to ponder to Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Anyway, here is the trailer.
My first comments. Hrithik looks way to handsome to die, at least in the the first look. Aishwarya looking quite like she did in HDDCS. And I guess Bhansali will make quite fine a music director. Rest, when I see more.
And here I find something that is compelling enough to make me watch a movie. Allah ke Banday, the acting debut of the movie’s director, is a something that moves you with its trailer itself. A story of two children who are called ‘born killers’, 11 years after they are put into Jail, for murders as can be easily guessed from the trailer. Interestingly, I can see Sharman Joshi and Atul Kulkarni together after long, in a movie that reminds me of Rang De Basanti. And yes, Naseeruddin Shah looks wonderful as always. Here is the trailer.
And Karan Johar’s next song arrives. OK, not Karan Johar’s song, but his production’s next movie’s first song is out and here goes their first song, Dil khol ke let’s rock which is actually a version of Elvis Presley’s 1957 song JailHouse rock. Thus, Karan Johar and Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy go a step ahead from Pretty Woman which was a 1990’s movie. I need not think twice to guess that Karan would have got the rights for this one too.
It’s another matter that I didn’t like the song so much as the original one, even though I’m not a big fan of Elvis. Probably I didn’t like the voice of Anushka in the song (I hope it’s her) and for sure I don’t think Kajol and Kareena go with that rock voice right after Lata and Alka and Shreya Ghoshal. Still, if the song exists in a Karan Johar movie, it has to be a hit, and however liked or disliked by me, a song can never be not worth a hear if it comes from Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, and that too one that was made by Elvis and that when it was listed on the 500 best songs ever.
Oh, btw, Suraj Jagan sounds good in the song.
Here is the video.
and if you want, here is the original JailHouse Rock from 1957. Colorized later, of course.
As I watched the trailer of Salman Khan’s Dabangg, I was just loving it and cursing the producers why they released the trailer so early. Well, I’m in love with the trailer now and want to watch it. Anyone in doubt?
OK. If you are in doubt, here is the reason. For Salman Khan, there are two key areas: Fights and Comedy. And as I saw the trailer, I was sure I was going to plenty of both in the film, whatever be the story. My guess is, I can watch Dabangg to simply have a good time. Watch the trailer and decide for yourself.
Still in doubt after watching Inspector Chulbul Pandey? I guess not. 😛
Dharma Productions’ next, the much hyped, much in demand, Kajol, Kareena, Arjun Rampal starrer, Stepmom’s remake, is finally here. Here is the trailer that is running on TV nowadays, with the song that I can here in the background:
Look at us, We are a family,
all of us, we are a family..
YashRaj’s next is here. A boxer and a blind girl, sounds different and looks different too. Pradeep Sarkar, the director of movies like Parineeta and Laaga Chunri Mein Daag, has attemped something different compared to his previous movies. The trailer of Deepika and Neil Nitin Mukesh’s next movie Lafangey Parindey is out, and looks good to me.
“apne desh mein jitne bhi road contractor hain, sab apni zindagi aaram se guzaar dete hain, ek hi road baar baar bana ke.” I found myself actually laughing when I heard the sentence from Sachin Tichkule aka Akshay Kumar in the promo of Priyadarshan’s coming laugh riot Khatta Meetha.
A student leaves boarding school to study engineering while working in the steel factory of his father, whom he has not met for eight years. A father who is a tyrant from the first look. A story of hope. A story of fear. Udaan.
Directed by Vikramaditya Motwane. Produced by Anurag Kashyap, Sanjay Singh & UTV. Stars Rajat Barmecha, Ronit Roy, Aayan Boradia and Ram Kapoor.
Well, as I said, Mithoon is back with Lamhaa. And here is the first song of the album, out there. Sung by Mithoon (as far as I can guess) and Chinmayee (as per sources), madhno re is an instantly likable song. The best part of the song is that it is Mithoon’s type, it’s good, but it doesn’t sound repetitive. In short, I am loving the song already, check it for yourself.
Himesh is totally back. I mean you can certainly get to hear his voice in Kajraare where he’s the hero too, but then after a long time you can hear him In milenge milenge – the long pending venture of Satish Kaushik.
For now, the first song from the move is out and you can hear him crooning kuch to baaki hai, a slow number, belonging to the Himesh era only.
The Interesting thing is that after a long break, Himesh sounded good, at least to me, In the song. And in case you happen to be a Himesh fan, just be happy, your days are here, at least for sometime. Again.
kuch to baki hai..
kuchh to baaki hai..
Sab khatm ho ke bhi,
Tere mere darmiyaan,
Kuch to baaki hai…
Love it, Hate it, Get addicted or decide your own combination, whatever you do, you cannot ignore Himesh Reshammiya’s new song as long as you have access to television or radio. Right now, television is showing the promo of Kajra Kajra Kajraa re almost every minute (yes, literally, and I’m not counting all channels together) and the prophecy I made two hours ago is turning out to be true. The prophecy was simple, however be the singing, the music of the punch line, Kajra Kajra Kajra re is addictive and will stick to tongues soon. Though nobody will dare sing it. After all, we know who has sung it and how.
Here are the lyrics and the video.
na main jaaga na main soya
ujhko dekh ke sudhbudh khoya
mati maar gayi matvaare
kajra kajra kajraa re
Himesbhai is back. Well, if you think he was back some time earlier with Radio too, I’m not talking of that Himesh. I am here talking of Himesbhai, the one who was there before Radio, in Aap ka Suroor and other movies. And that can be seen in his song, Rabba Luck Barsa.
The traces of Title song that I saw during the first promo also had a nasal touch and now I can listen to Himesh singing Mahiya se deedar kara de rabba luck barsa in a fairly nasal style, though I doubt if he’s actually singing as nasal as he did earlier.
In case u wanna see Himesh in his old avatar, here is a video.
Well, it’s good, but it’s typical. The second song that comes up from I Hate Luv Storys sounds more like some old song of Vishal-Shekhar. In fact I can give you something close too. Jaane Kyun dil jaanta hai… from Dostana.
Yes, it’s Vishal again, singing the new song, and probably that’s one more reason I feel Jaane Kyon more n more in the song, though, the beginning visuals and sound both remind me of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. By the visual looking like S-E-L I probably mean to say it reminds me of Lakshya.
OK. I think I have confused you enough. So here I summarize.
1. I didn’t find much freshness in the song.
2. I liked the song anyway.
If that too doesn’t make things clear, here is the song for you.
Ek ladki thi deewani si, ek ladke pe wo marti thi, jab bhi milti thi mujhse, mujhse poochha karti thi,
pyaar kaise hota hai, ye pyaar kaise hota hai?
aur main, yahi keh paata tha.. What the f…..
I wonder if there could be a better start to the movie, or say, the trailer too. Imran Khan’s much awaited I Hate Luv Stories, Oops, Storys (It took me months to write The Pursuit of HappYness, n yes, it’s LUV storys here, not even LOVE).
“Love jaisa kuch nai hota, it’s like.. Bhagwan”, “Tum Raj ko apna bhagwan maanti ho, usme rab dikhta hai?” sound good coming from Imran Khan in the movie and I think you can expect more like that in the movie. And then, to top it all, Vishal Dadlani sings a catchy, foot-tapping “Mil gaye jo chhora chhori, hui masti thodi thodi, bas pyaar ka naam na lena, I hate Love Stories.” Hopes from Vishal-Shekhar’s music going up again. Enjoy the trailer.
Oops! That sounds good. I just happened to see a flicker of Rajneeti’s song Mora Piya on television and in the very first time, it sounded Kinda good. As I searched, I got to know that the song was composed and sung by Aadesh Srivastava. No debate again on whether Aadesh Srivastava is underrated or not. Continue reading “Mora Piya – Rajneeti”
