7 Days in Paris – Thats the title of Sanjay Doom Gadhvi’s new film, according to indiafm. The film is produced by Studio18, the same guys who released Gadhvi’s last shitbuster Kidnap. BTW, if you are still clueless about Imran and Studio18’s connection, let us inform you that Imran’s girlfreind Avantika Malik is the daughter of Studi018 boss Vandana Malik. Thats simple calculation, isnt it!

Here is more on the film from the site

Sanjay plans to begin filming in June-end/July, “because I want to capture the summer in Europe,” he reveals, “It’s a uniquely structured script, but I can’t reveal much at this stage.” Sanjay plans to wrap almost 85% of the film in Paris, while the remaining portions will be filmed in London and Mumbai.

rituparno ghoshLike us, if you were shocked to see the booby makeover of director Rituparno Ghosh (see pic) then here is the real dope behind it. 

According to Bombay Times, the director is all set to make his acting debut in Kaushik Ganguly’s bengali film Chaya Chobi. In the film he plays the role of an artist who feels as a woman, trapped in a man’s body.  The role is a tribute to the legendary jatra (bengal’s tradition of folk theatre) actor Chapal Bhaduri who used to play women’s role on stage. This lead to sexual confusions in Bhaduri’s life which is the main plot of the film. 

Rituparno is also learning Kathak dance for the same. In the film, he starts as a jatra actor and becomes a film director who is in a relationship with a cinematographer. Bengali actor Indranil plays a bisexual actor who has a relationship with Raima Sen’s and Rituparno’s characters. Raima plays the role of a research assistant working on the film. Its film in a film story.

Woohoo….this is one daring plot! we love it…fuck the indian censor and the sensibility! Lets get some controversy onboard! Even if its not for real, Rituparno’s makeover is surely going to get loads of eyeballs and lot of newsprint.

love-aaj-kal new posterLove Aaj Kal – as the name suggests, its about the changing philosophy of love. What was it yesterday and how is it today ?

With fast food joints, coffee shops, quick delivery pizzas and nachos, has the love quotient also changed or is it still the same ? Bollywood’s new love guru Imtiaz Ali ponders over it.

The conclusion – well, we all know. Its a happy ending. The style has changed but the experience remains the same. Here is some exclusive info about the film’s synopsis.

Love Aaj Kal is the story of Jai ( Saif Ali Khan) and Meera (Deepika Padukone). It starts at a cafe in London which is run by Vir Singh ( Rishi Kapoor). The duo meet, jump into bed first and then they fall in love. With Jai-Meera’s love story, there is parallel track of Vir Singh, his love story with Harleen, which happens in flashback and is set in Delhi. One is today’s love story and the other is of yesteryears. Saif Ali also plays the younger Vir Singh (Rishi Kapoor). And who is Harleen ? Deepika ? We got no clue. Rahul Khanna also has a cameo in the film.

ram-gopal-varmaThe man knows it all. But you cant win all the games. His recent film Rann is on the politics of newsroom, the battle for eyeballs. And so, we thought that atleast Ramu would understand the way news channels work. They are not run by shitheads as he and his publicity smartasses might be thinking. Why ? Read on.

With the distorted version of Jann Gana Mann as Jana Gana Rann, Ramu and his coterie must have thought that they have cracked the next big idea for the publicity of the film. So even before the song got censor certificate, it was smartly handed over to the news channels to play, expecting the right buzz to happen. And thats how its available all over the net. When the intention is not so cool, the coolest idea also falls flat. Thats exactly what happened. With the IPL and election fever on, nobody bothered much about the jana gana rann song. No play, no eyeball, no buzz.

Next, as expected Censor Board didnt allow the song. Ramu was more than happy with the news. It was moving in the direction as it was planned. Rann’s publicity managers tried to convince the news editors to debate, dicuss and dissect the issue. Blame it on Varun and Rahul baba’s high election drama and fakeiplplayer’s entertaining posts…those were much more interesting. Deadend again.

Next, Ramu approached the court to get the song cleared. And as expected the Supreme Court slammed Ramu for distorting the national song. Here is more.

We always thought this was one dude who would never pretend to be holier-than-thou and try to show us the mirror because he always said that he looks dirty when he watches himself in the mirror. We expected Ramu to be the last man to give us gyaan on the state of the nation and blah blah. But then, for publicity people do strange things.

So What does Mr Amitabh Bachchan thinks about this publicity gimmick ? The man who is always ready to butcher the media. Or he has no clue.

And here goes our love letter to the man whom we love to hate or hate to love…

Dear Ramu,

After your horrible attempts like Sarkar Raj, Contract and Phoonk, we are not sure about others but we will be there.  Because we still think that you are the original inglorious bastard, one who can talk about the love for RIFLE so openly and without any guilt. Only few dare to do so. This is the real you or atleast thats your image. You are not jana gana rann. Dont give us lecture. And please dont pretend. Bollywood is anyway guided by too heavy morals. We dont want one more conscious citizen.

If for nothing else, we will watch Rann for the honest man who tried to fake it with Jann Gana Rann.
