Aha, this seems like the perfect pitch for its theatrical release in India. We love it, except the title font and its colour, which looks little bland in the middle of all that chaos. For us, its “days of being wild & pains of growing up” and the poster seems to have captured that.

The lead actor is Rajat Barmecha, who looks a lot like Imran Khan and acts million times better than him. For our review of Udaan click here, for Vikramaditya Motwane & Anurag Kashyap’s video interviews here, for earlier poster/pics/synopsis of the film here and for all the Cannes jazz here.

After Chandni Chowk to China, Nikhil Advani has again paired up with Akshay Kumar for his new film Patiala House. And yes, cricket is at its core. The film is being shot in London and a reader of our blog alerted us about these two videos which are out now.The second video tells more about the film than the first one which has Akshay’s interview. Click on the play button if you are still interested in either Akshay Kumar or Nikhil Advani film.

No, we dont shy away from naming names. But the man whom we trust told us to look at the scene with little acid and more sanity! We argued for the sake of cheap thrills and tried to find a middle path. Plus we HATED the director’s last film, which the world seems to love! So, here we  are, back with our old game – Aao Guess Karein!

His (Z) last film was a big hit. And then, the man never remained same again. In one of the scriptwriting workshops he proudly declared that his film is the best structured hindi film in the last ten years! Our jaws dropped and since then we have not been able to pick it up.

Whats more, in his over-confidence he even gave an interview and pulled down one of the best films of last year, written by one of the best screenwriters we have in the current lot. Our jaws were buried!

Then came the announcement for his next film. He was offered never heard before amount for only scripting it. Plus there was direction fees too. And then the non-stop brag sessions started. For his next film, he would keep on bragging about the “number of drafts” he is writing. First, we heard about 17th draft, last we heard 25th and then there were few more. And its complete home production.

Its no surprise that he got a BIG budget for his new film. Even the amount spent on recce had our eyes wide open. The film was shot outside India and got completed last year. But still no release date has been announced. Wondering why ?

Well, here is the dope. It seems that his tyres have been busted this time. Problem – Main actor is dude but the actress is no match for him. The lead actor is more of dude and less of actor anyway! And the lead actress is IRREPLACEABLE! Because his tyres run her car too. And her mom’s car too.

So, after spending quite a bomb on the film, the producers got a big shock when they saw the film.  It wasn’t what they were expecting! The director has been told to re-shoot major romantic portions of the film to get that “jai ho” factor between the lead pair, much like his earlier film, as this one also is romcom! The director and everyone else have spread the news out that they are back to (pakhi pakhi) pardesh to shoot just a song. But thats not true! He is trying hard to get the punctured tyres re-paired now.

Bhagwan bhala kare – tu hame jaane ya na jaane, hum tere chahnewale they kabhi…before you made that silly stupid film! The desi high school musical….aha, that cribfest deserves a new post. Now guess Mr Z and the film! Its damn easy and is all here.
