Ashutosh GowarikerBlame it on Raashee! The film or his sun sign, we are yet not sure. But one thing is for sure – the film Whats Your Raashee (starring Priyanka Chopra and Harman Baweja) is UNBEARABLE! We might be jumping the gun here but heard that those who saw the film were pleading desperately for a gun! And some of them were even dead by the time it got over.

Today there was a press screening of the film. We managed to sent a spy who twittterd us some intersting every bit about the film.

Best part of the film – Interval!

Post interval – Am almost in a state of comatose. Wake me up before I die!

After sometime – BTW, there is ten minutes discussion on sampoorn sharirik sambandhan!

Me– Nishkarsh kya nikla (conclusion)

He – Thankfully none!

Moi – whats the point ?

He – That should have been the name of the film or atleast the tagline!

Conclusion – This is Gowariker’s Aag! Nobody can like this film. People might buy the ticket and go inside but lets see how many can come out alive after 3.5 hours!

Be ready to roll out the red carpet for the new member of the club whose preveileged members includes Subhash Ghai, Ram Gopal Varma, Sanjay Leela Bhansali among many others.

Are we surprised ? Naah. Everything was indicating in the same direction. Harman Baweja, Promos, Songs…we hated everything. Then came out the duration 3.5 hours, the Variety review and someone even leaked out the print! Seems this time even luck is not on his side. To read our earlier post on Variety review click here.

One person must be laughing out loud! Sajid Khan. And as someone said after the press screening, Gowariker deserves this one, he was taking himself too seriously, flying too high like Sanjay Leela Bhansali. This one will get him to ground. But its surprising that UTV gave him so much freedomand!

Ideally we should wait for the reviews. But am willing to stick my neck out and say this is going to sink faster than Titanic! Wanna bet ?

The first look of Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Vivek Oberoi starrer Kurbaan is out. The film is produced by Karan Johar and directed by Rensil D’Silva. Check it out….The tagline is Some Love Stories Have Blood On Them!And to know why, how and what blood this love story has, scroll down. 


And if the second poster is any indication of things to come, expect full on smooches and love making scenes between Saif and Kareena!

Here is the exclusive dope! The plot/story/synopsis of Kurbaan.

SPOILER ALERT! Dont read further if enjoy every small surprise!

This one also starts in USA, like other recents films of Karan Johar! Kareena is based in US and comes back to her hometown Delhi when her father suffers a heart attack. She meets Saif Ali Khan, a Delhi University Professor and falls for him. Phir kya…yaar, ishq, mohabbat, naach gaana and the couple gets married. They go back to USA with dreams of a new family life. But its not what it looks like.

Kareena discovers that her husband (Saif Ali Khan) is not professor but a mastermind terrorist who used her to protect his identity! Dhen Tedan!! Saif figures out that Kareena has found his true identity and puts her under house arrest.

Enters Vivek Oberoi. The high profile tv journalist who works with a big news network in USA. Kareena gets to know that Saif Ali Khan and his men are planning to hijack and bomb an airplane. The same plane which Vivek is going to board soon for some assignment. The rest of the film is about how Kareena with the help of Vivek tries to save the lives of passengers onboard.

What happens to the “blood”y love story ? Your guess is as good as mine. So, place your bets! 

couples-retreatHave you heard of a film called Couples Retreat ? If you havent, you should. This film marks A R Rahman’s entry into mainstream Hollywood post-Oscar!

Couples Retreat is a romantic comedy revolving around four couples who visit a tropical island resort for vacation, and to reinvigorate their marriages. From the synopsis, its difficult to imagine how much musical scope it can have. Its directed by Peter Billingsley and written by Jon Favreau. The cast includes Vince Vaughn, Faizon Love, Jason Bateman, Kristin Davis, Kristen Bell, Malin Akerman and Kali Hawk. Check out the film’s promo.
