Kambakkht IshqThose of you who have seen the film Kambakkht Ishq, know the suffering. Those of you who haven’t, must have checked out the reviews. But what most people don’t know is that its an official remake of Kamal Haasan starrer Tamil film Pammal K Sambandam.

According to this report in HT, Sajid Nadiadwala bought the remake rights for 75 lakhs. And thats why there is no story credit in the film. But believe it or not, four writers have been credited for the screenplay.

Screenplay- Sabbir Khan, Anvita Dutt Guptan, Kiran Kotrial, Ishita Moitra.

Sabir Khan is the director and have been ADing since last few years. Anvita Dutt Guptan is the writer/lyricist of Dostana (dialogues), Bachna Aae Haseena (dialogues/lyrics), Tashan (lyrics) & Neal & Nikki (dialogues). Kiran Kotrial has credits for Ishq Vishq (dialogues), Fida ( dialogues), Deewane Huye Paagal (story/screenplay) & Waah! Life Ho to Aisi (dialogues).  For Ishita Moitra, this is first writing credit.

Isn’t it Ripley’s believe it or not ? Four writers writing a remake and they come up with this shit. Too many cooks ? OR may be the number of writers writing a film is directly proportional to the dumb quotient of the film. And to dumb it down more, you need more writers! Remember Love Story 2050 ?

Love Story 2050 (Screenplay) – Harry Baweja, Rowena Baweja

Additional screenplay – Bhavani Iyer, Suparn Varma, Karan Razdan, Prem Soni.

Six writers for Love Story 2050! BTW, if you don’t know, Harry is Daddy B and Rowena is sister B.

Anvita Dutt GuptanAnd those of you thought Kambakkht Ishq’s jokes & dialogues are sexist & offensive, you would be surprised to know that the writer is Anvita Dutt Guptan. Why blame the boys always for being sexist! Or may be some exceptions do prove the rule. Anvitaji, aap kya paan kar rahi hai aajkal ?
