This one is strictly for the fanboys. And is posted by one such fanboy on Facebook.  Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap tweeted the pic today. So, here it is…we aren’t surprised because we knew about it. The scene is in both the films – Dev D and Gulaal. Have you noticed it ? If not, time to watch both the films again. For some cheap thrills atleast.

The theme song of the Commonwealth Games was finally released today. Its composed by A R Rahman. Click on the play button to listen to it……

And here is the video of Rahman performing the song…

The first trailer of Aamir Bashir’s directorial debut Harud is out. The film is going to have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). Its selected in the Discovery section.

The film has been shot by Shanker Raman and stars Reza Naji ( His breakthrough role was in Children of Heaven directed by the renowned filmmaker Majid Majidi. In 2008 he won the Silver Bear at the Berlin film festival for his performance in the film Song of Sparrows), Shahnawaz Bhat, Shamim Basharat, Mudassir Khan, Salma Ashai.

From Uttar Pradesh, he has happily moved to Gujarat. From one terror state to another. The actor, not really known for taking political stand, was criticised this time too. But he went ahead, saying he is promoting only Gujarat Tourism and not Narendra Modi. Aha!

After the super duper success of his high school musical Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, Abbas Tyrewala is back. And this time its supposed to be a mature love story.  Jhootha Hi Sahi stars John Abraham, Pakhi Tyrewala (Abbas’ wife and co-writer) , Raghu Ram and a bunch of friends, like in JTYJN. Has music by A R Rahman. Check it out.

The first trailer of Danny Boyle’s new film 127 Hours is out. Wondering why we are posting it here ? Two reasons. Well, if Vishwanathan Anand is not Indian, then Danny Boyle can be half-Indian. And it has music by A R Rahman. Check it out.

Wow! What energy. And the best part is that Boyle goes to other extreme after Slumdog Millionaire. From populist desi masala to a film revolving around just one character. The film is going to have its premiere at the Toronto International Film festival. And here is the official synopsis of the film….

127 HOURS is the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston’s (James Franco) remarkable adventure to save himself after a fallen boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolated canyon in Utah.

Over the next five days Ralston examines his life and survives the elements to finally discover he has the courage and the wherewithal to extricate himself by any means necessary, scale a 65 foot wall and hike over eight miles before he is finally rescued. Throughout his journey, Ralston recalls friends, lovers (Clemence Poesy), family, and the two hikers (Amber Tamblyn and Kate Mara) he met before his accident. Will they be the last two people he ever had the chance to meet?

A visceral thrilling story that will take an audience on a never before experienced journey and prove what we can do when we choose life.

And if it sounds interesting, do check the two videos where Aron Ralston talks about it….
