Whats Your Raashee ?WTF!!! Yes, that was our first reaction when we heard about it! We know that Ashutosh Gowariker cant make films less than 3 hours and he got it right in his last three films – Jodha Akbar, Swades and Lagaan. All three films were longer than 3 hours.

But, Harman Baweja is not Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan or Hrithik Roshan! Also, there is no A R Rahman this time! The songs are fuckall, atleast we didnt like a single song in the What’s Your Raashee album. And this must be the longest romcom in the history of cinema! We are praying and how!

If gossipmongers are to be believed Ashutosh Gowariker is not happy with 3hrs 20 mins, he wants to keep it at 3hrs 40mins! Is he planning a filmy version of Mujhe Iss Film Se Bachao!

The promos look bad, the songs suck, Harman is horrible but we still want to see the film. Because we trust the director and 12 avtaars of Priyanka seems interesting idea! Very few actors get to do something like this! Sincerly hoping that Gowariker hasnt lost it like many others!

kites11First, the not so exclusive news : Kites is 3 hours long! Ok, 2 hours and 50 minutes to be precise! Like us, if the multiplex-distributors’ strike has also made you desperate to step into the theatre to watch any new release (exception – Kal Kisne Dekha doesnt count, even if we get free tickets…we have seen its “kal“) then get ready to be compensated soon, atleast with the duration. Because its three hours of Hrithik Roshan singing, dancing, jumping, kissing and everything possible. After all, its produced by Papa Rakesh Roshan. 

And now the exclusive one : Kites scored a Big “zero” at the Cannes Film Festival. But its a gutsy story! The name justifies it all. BIG pictures, big film, big stars, big film festival and a big zero. So Papa Roshan alongwith beta Hrithik Roshan, director Anurag Basu, Barbara Mori and Amit Khanna (Big Pictures) landed up at Cannes to promote the film. Now, why would you go to an international platform like Cannes and make a fool of yourself ? What will they say – From the makers of Krazzy4 ? And how they paid 2cr for plagiarising a song! Dont believe us, take a look at its promo.

Is there anything exciting about it ? (Barbara doesnt count if you think she is hot) Doesnt it look like Dhoom1 meets Dhoom2 ? Hollywood churns out movies with this kind of action almost every year, and nobody keeps the count. So who would get impressed with such a trailer ? They tried hard to sell the film. Met five big international distributors and everyone rejected the film. All five. No interest, no buyer. Cannes result = zero.

BTW, Rakesh Roshan was really hoping for a big international deal because lot of it is in spanish! Ahh…if only someone could tell him that they have seen this kind of stuff ages ago! Its may be first for him, or his beta!
