Is today something special ? Something to do with feeling nostalgic! First, the post on Hum Log @25 and now this one. On his new blog post, Ram Gopal Varma has put up four on location pics from his film Shiva. Take a look. And to quote Ramu, before you check out the pics…

If you promise not to laugh I am posting here some location pictures from “Shiva” which my mother dug up from an old closet.

And now check out his current avtaar. The look, the style, the attitude, the pose, ah..the dude! Gained a lot, and lost some cinema sense in exchange ? The maverick surprises us always, from one extreme to other.

Hum LogRemember Hum Log. Badki, Majhli, Chutki, Basesar Ram, Daadi, Nanhe & Ashok Kumar’s closing act. One of the most popular tv serials to air during DD days is 25 years old.  Rediff pushed the rewind button and spoke to some  of the actors who became household names with Hum Log. Click here to read the full feature. 

Kamal HaasanThats what the news reports suggests. It was suppose to be a big budget film starring Kamal Haasan & Asin. Walt Disney was producing it and to be directed by Bharatbala.

Problem ? Kamal Haasan. It seems he wanted changes in the script and backed out when the changes weren’t made. Our guess – He must have asked Bharatbala to cast him in all the possible 19 roles in the same film! Thats what he has been doing these days.

Current status – Most probably Asin will also back out of the film as she decided to do it because of Kamal Haasan. The makers are now talking to Vikram for the same part. Music is by A R Rahman. And here’s the synopsis, according to wikipedia…

The story of this film revolves around a Japanese samurai warrior (Tadanobu Asano) who travels to Kerala to learn the secrets of the ancient Dravidian martial art of Kalaripayattu from a veteran martial art trainer (Kamal Haasan). In the process he falls in love with a beautiful Chera princess (Asin Thottumkal). Whether he learns the martial art and whether he wins his love or not, forms the core of the story.

A new pic from Vishal Bhardwaj’s film Kaminey has been released. Its of Amole Gupte. And with every new pic of Amole Gupte, we get a feeling that he is going to be the show stealer. Take a look. 

Amole Gupte

Amole Gupte is the same guy who wrote Taare Zameen Par and was suppose to direct it also. But was replaced by producer Aamir Khan as he decided to turn director all of a sudden.

The film stars Shahid Kapoor (in double role ) & Priyanka Chopra. Amole plays the role of Sunil Shekhar Bhope, Priyanka’s brother and is known as Bhope Bhau. A news bit what we recently heard, and are finding difficult to believe, is that that Kaminey is set in the backdrop of Bengali mafia in Mumbai. Marathi is the norm, but bengali ?We surely are excited.

BTW, whats your K-poison ? The music is out. We are playing Kaminey’s title track in loop. Its the song of the year….meri arzooo, ….kamini….mere khwab bhi, kaminey…….ek dil se dosti thi….yeh huzoor bhi kaminey!  What’s your track ?
