Finally! After criticising every celeb blogger for doing the job what journalists should be doing, Shah Rukh Khan has finally joined the club. As the owner of Kolkata Knight Riders, who have been facing criticism from all quarters, Shah  Rukh Khan has finally decided to make his views public. His blog can be found at www.kkr.in. The first two posts read more like motivational speeches and less of blog! Looks like he is still playing the role of Kabir Khan from Chak De India!

Well we can understand why.  Firstly, the bad performance of the team and add to that, the mayhem created by  fakeiplyplayer who is leaking out every possible detail about the team. Khansaab must be going insane. Too much to handle!

For those of you who love lil’ bit of philosophy, here is Theodore Roosevelt’s quote as put up by Shah Rukh Khan on his blog…

It is not the critic who counts;

    Not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles,

    Or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

    The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,

    Whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;

    Who strives valiantly;

    Who errs, who comes short again and again,

    Because there is no effort without error and shortcoming;

    But who does actually strive to do deeds;

    Who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions;

    Who spends himself in a worthy cause;

    Who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,

    And who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly,

    So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who

    neither know

    Victory nor Defeat.

Glamsham.com has released the plot details of Suparn Verma’s new film Acid Factory. Initial reports suggests that like all Sanjay Gupta films, this one too promises all style and no substance. And like in the past, Guptaji has got a new bakra. Mumbai Mantra ( Mahindra’s film divison) has acquired the film and will be releasing it soon. 

The film stars Fardeen Khan,  Aftab Shivdasani, Danny Denzongpa, Manoj Bajpai, Dino Morea, Irfan Khan and Dia Mirza. 

Here is the story…

What if a killer would wake up one day with his memory erased? Would his crimes cease to exist?

What if an innocent wakes up one day with his memory erased and perceives himself to be a criminal?

Would that change his perception of reality? 

ACID FACTORY is about a group of characters whose sense of past has vanished in a haze of coma like sleep they have woken up from only to discover that reality could be a figment of their imagination. Their sense of right or wrong is heightened by this state of complete distrust and self righteousness. Five men wake up inside the confines of a factory to find themselves locked in this claustrophobic nowhere land.

As the plot unfolds we gradually learn that two of the people who are trapped have been kidnapped and held hostage by the rest of the three for a heist. But the irony is they themselves do not know who the hostages are and who the kidnappers are.

Their fears are heightened by a phone call from the leader of the gang of goons who informs them that he is on his way with the heist and plans to knock off the two hostages as soon as he arrives. Every one fears for their lives as they are unaware about the fact which tow of them are the hostages. They plan escape, fail and end lunging at each other in despair as the clock ticks away. Individual foibles and shortcomings surface in this final hour of despair. The Big Boss eventually arrives and what follows is a riveting climax leading to an action packed finale. 

The description sounds great on paper and the way its written, makes it look more interesting. But only if the film can achieve half of whats written here! Or may be it will turn out to be one more wannabe cool film. We will be happy to be proved wrong.  Here is the link to the Glamsham feature.
