It was suppose to be Vikram’s big bollywood debut. But what actually happened? Well, we all know the story. The general feedback was that the Tamil version was better than the Hindi one. In the Tamil version, Vikram played Beera, the same role which was played by Abhishek Bachchan in the Hindi version.  And a film buff cut a very cool video – put Vikram in double role. Watch the video.

And he has a cut a new trailer of the film in the same way

If you still haven’t heard why this kolaveri di, am guessing you belong to a completely different planet. If you search for the song on youtube, there are some hundred versions of it – male, female, cat, mouse, chipmunks, bong, punjabi and so on. And since everyone was baffled by its instant success and nobody could explain the reason for it, now it’s the time for the bad copycats to try their luck. If only someone could explain to them that you can’t plan a viral success, it just happens because it’s so good. And if you plan a campaign, at least don’t be a copycat.

The first one is a song called Boka Chor – a desperate attempt by Bappi Lahiri and SaReGaMa. The entire video has been shot like the Kolaveri di video with some bad acting thrown in here and there. What’s worse is this info attached to the video – Bappi Lahiri is combining the Indian languages in the song Boka Chor. Enjoy this slang song in different Languages with Bappi Daa.

Combining Indian languages? Aha, where have i heard that before? Forget the video, even the idea of the song is not new. Lets’ go to the second one.

This one is by T-Series and for the promotion of Players.  With Abhishek Bachchan behind the mic, it’s again the same style, same shots, same almost everything. If you want to copy the idea, that’s fine. But why can’t you add something new to it? Why it has to be a brain-dead one? Control + C —> Control +V. Done.

And the latest one is from a film called Jodi Breakers. Strangely, the makers haven’t released a teaser or a trailer of the film but are hoping for a viral magic with this one.

Am i the only who can’t see anything magical in these three videos? If no, i hope we don’t get any more of such tacky stuff.

Two new trailers are out. Luv Ka The End – the first film of YRF’s new banner Y Films. It starrs Shraddha Kapoor and has been directed by Bumpy ( Remember Roadies?). Will put a separate post with more details about Y Films.

And here is the theatrical trailer of Dum Maaro Dum. Directed by Rohan Sippy, it stars Abhishek Bachchan, Bipasha Basu, Rana Daggubati and  Prateik. It’s written by Shridhar Raghavan, shot by Amit Roy and has Pritam’s Music. And click here to read its official synopsis.

The first look of Rohan Sippy’s new film Dum Maaro Dum is out. It stars Abhishek Bachchan, Bipasha Basu and Rana Daggubati. Prateik is credited as Special Appearance in the teaser. It’s written by Shridhar Raghavan, shot by Amit Roy and has Pritam’s Music. Check it out.

And here is the official synopsis….

Goa. Paradise on Earth. But every Paradise has a few snakes.

Multiple lives collide brutally one day at Goa Airport… and change forever.

Prateik Babbar: Lorry
A student on the verge of following his girlfriend to a US University. But when his scholarship gets rejected, his life threatens to spiral out of control, until he meets a smooth talking hustler who promises to get it back on track. For a small price. His soul.

Abhishek Bachchan: ACP Vishnu Kamath
A self destructive cop fleeing his own past, Kamath is given the job of destroying the brutal local and international drug mafia in Goa. As he begins his ruthless, relentless campaign and takes on the murky drug world… he discovers nothing is what it seems.

Rana Daggubati: DJ Joki
A local musician and mute spectator to what is happening around him, Joki drifts aimlessly through life after an encounter with the drug mafia cost him everything he held dear. Today he discovers history has a nasty habit of repeating itself. Will he finally have the guts to take a stand?

Bipasha Basu: Zoe
An aspiring airhostess who saw her dreams turn to dust, Zoey in a way represents Goa itself. A child of the hippy generation, a mix of local and foreign culture, innocence and beauty have gradually been replaced by cynicism and abuse.

Aditya Pancholi: Lorsa Biscuta aka the Biscuit
A ruthless local businessman, the Biscuit has his finger in every Goan pie, legal or illegal. The point person between all the various Mafias operating in Goa, the Biscuit finds himself pushed to the extreme limit with Kamath’s arrival. But he knows who to turn to:

A mysterious shadow
The ultimate drug kingpin. Many names, many identities but no one knows who he is….

We hurtle into the bylanes, beach shacks and raves of Goa with Lorry as his life spirals out of control, with Joki as he tries to redeem the past and with Kamath as he goes no-holds-barred after the mysterious shadow figure behind it all…

Punctuated with a soundtrack that moves from pulsating dance tracks to haunting Konkani songs, shot right in the midst of the teeming international tourist hotspots, Dum Maaro Dum takes you on a dramatic, thrilling trip filled with twists, turns, suspense… and a shocking finale!

This time POTD is not Pic Of The Day but its PICK Of The Day. Take a closer look at both the pics and pick the odd wig man out! Both the pics are from the music release function of Rajinikanth & Aishwarya Rai starrer Robot (Endhiran).

And if you think its a futile exercise, click here. Its even made to Answers.com page. So, don’t put the blame on us. We have never been able to understand the reason though. And he is so desperate that even when he is being taken to the hospital on a stretcher bed, he doesn’t forget to cover it. Scroll down and  take a closer look at the pic….aha, the hand!

Dear Boss, you can do everything. Can you please crack this puzzle ?

Moving to Junior B. The kid who is tweeting for his new film Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey should be immediately banned from Twitterverse. Why ? Check out this timeline. They did 24 hours countdown to reveal a new KHJJS pic of Junior B. Here is another puzzle…tell us whats so special about this pic ?

Their answer – Its part one of our independence Day surprise.

Our answer – Please take back our independence if this is the surprise!

Or how else do you explain this poster of Endhiran starring Rajnikanth and Aishwarya Rai. Have a look and comment if you can. We are speechless!

BTW, the Twitter team of Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey have been desperately doing some countdown to release one more still from the film. Yes, we are blessed with one more still! If you are interested take a look at this drab pic. Abhishek Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Sikandar Kher and others! So, it seems both are in Time Machine. One goes futuristic and the other rewind! Badhiya hai!

PS – Thnx to Chintan Shah for the Robot pic alert.

FLASHBACK

After Guru released, one morning we woke up to a big shock! Amitabh Bachchan had put a full page ad in all the major national dailies, and had put out all the congratulatory smses that he received for his Beta Bachchan. Private messages meant for him became advertisement! And some of the filmy people of Bollylalaland who send these kind of smses every friday to every filmmaker whose films releases, just to make them happy, were surprised, shocked and embarassed too. They never imagined that it will go to print.

PRESENT

After Raavan has been butchered by critics and its BO fate seems doomed, Beta Bachchan has gone completely silent. Infact he has moved to Football fever! Bet something surely is fishy there because citizens of bollylalaland go on and on and on about their films pre & post-release. Surprisingly, there are no post-release promotional events too!

On the other hand, daddy Amitabh Bachchan is still active on twitter. In reply to Jitesh Pillaai, Editor of FilmUnfare, he has explained why Beera’s Bakbakbak looks so illogical in the film…first the tweets in text form….then the screenshot of the twitter page and a closer look, if you cant read.

@jiteshpillaai Agree, Jitesh ..gather lot of merited film edited out, causing inconsistent performance and narrative,but what presentation !

@jiteshpillaai Yes it was all there, but sadly edited. Abhishek’s erratic behavior was due to symbolic 10 heads visually appearing..contd about 3 hours ago

@jiteshpillaai contd ..and each giving him different attitudes to adopt for a situation, he would then finally shake them off and decide .. about 3 hours ago

@jiteshpillaai ..in the edit all the visual heads got cut and you see a confused Beera expression and wonder why .. it was after he removed about 3 hours ago

@jiteshpillaai .the other head visuals from his thinking.. in the edit you see the after effect of that thinking process, hence inconsistent about 3 hours ago

So, is Mr Sreekar Prasad & Mani Ratnam listening ? As they say, for every successful film, there are million daddies and for every bad one, its a bastard child!
