peter gaya kaam seHere is the first look of second feature of Rajeev Khandelwal, Peter Gaya Kaam Se. 

The film is directed by John Owen and produced by UTV Spotboy. The shooting of the film is almost complete. Rajiv plays the main lead in the movie and southie actress Lekha Washington is paired with him.

Story/Synopsis : Set in Goa, the movie revolves around Peter, who likes only two things in life – football and bikes.  One day Peter decides to quit his job. But his sleazy boss Bosco persuades him to do one last job, the last heist. And Peter never realised that it will change his life forever. Aur Peter Gaya Kaam Se!

raghu ramIf anyone ever made a career out of shouting, screaming, and abusing others, its MTV Roadies’ Raghu Ram! (even Rakhi Sawant score more, her skin show counts) And if someone ever got lucky by just being a twin brother, without any individual identity,  its Raghu’s twin Rajiv Laxman who was in the last season of MTV Roadies.

Now the news. According to Mid-day, Raghu Ram is soon going to make his big screen debut in Abbas Tyrewala’s 1-800-Love. Raghu plays John Abraham’s freind in the film and is paired opposite Manasi Scott.

For those of who dont know, Raghu is married to Sugandha Garg (see pic) who was in Abbas’ directorial debut Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. Woohoo….biwi in Abbas’ film and hubby in Abbas’ biwi film! 1-800-Love is written by Pakhi, Abbas’ wife and she also plays the lead opposite John. Too much of hubby-wifeys!

BTW, here is the dope on 1-800-Love. Abbas Tyrewala is writing the 29th drfat of the script!  Thats Ripley’s Believe it or not guys!  

teen patti bigThe first trailer of Amitabh Bachchan-Ben Kingsley starrer Teen Patti is out.  But it seems Amitabh Bachchan wants to have the promo exclusively on his blog. So we could not put the trailer here.

You can check the trailer here.

The film is drected by Leena Yadav (Shabd) and also R Madhavan. For the film’s story or synopsis, click here. And for Bachchan and Ben Kingsley’s pics, click here.

So is Teen Patti copy of Kevin Spacey’s 21 ?

love-aaj-kal new posterFor all you fans of Imtiaz Ali’s Jab We Met and Socha Na Tha, here is the first trailer of his new film Love Aaj Kal, starring Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone. And like its first still and first poster, this one also is a damp squib! Ofcourse its not the actual promo of the film but a tie-up promo which has been shot for T20 worldcup on Star Cricket.

Making money is not a bad thing and more so during recession time. But what we dont understand is why would someone fuck around with the first trailer/promo of such a highly anticipated film. And who wrote the promo lines ?

If you missed out Deepika’s dialogue delivery, please check it out again…..You are my Love Aaj Kal. But my love for cricket, kal bhi tha aur hamesh rahega! Eeeeks! We thought that nobody can do it better than Kangana Ranaut, the way she says basterd. But looks like Deepika will soon snatch the crown from Ranaut ! And cricket never sounded so terrible! Imtiaz, are you listening ? Or are we reading (or hearing) too much in 50 seconds ?

aage se right cut

If its about the big idea, then UTV surely deserves a pat on their back. Check out the website of their new film Aage Se Right and you will understand what we are saying. The address is Putting a bullet in a gun chamber was never so much fun!

Cast : The film stars Shreyas Talpade( Cop), Kay Kay (terroist) , Shiv Pandit(tapori), Mahie Gill (journalist) and Shenaz Treasurywala (aspiring actress).

Produced by UTV Spotboy and directed by debutant Indrajit Nattoji, Aage Se Right is a comic caper.

Synopsis : Set in Mumbai, Aage Se Right is all about chance and coincidence. Its five days of chaos, panic and mayhem. It revolves around a cop and terrorist. The cop ( Shreyas) loses his gun and the terrorist (Kay Kay) loses his heart. The two worlds meet and it leads to hilarious situations. A satire of our chaotic times.
