A new trailer of debutant Karan Malhotra’s Agneepath has just released. Produced by Karan Johar, this film is an official remake of Mukul Anand’s Agneepath and stars Hrithik Roshan, Sanjay Dutt, Priyanka Chopra and Rishi Kapoor. Take a look.

And here are few observations…

1. This doesn’t look like the usual KJo film. And that’s a a good start. Dongri? I am not sure if any of the characters from any KJo production ever knew that a place called Dongri exist. Good to see that Dharma Productions is exploring beyond SoBo.

2. Dialogues by Piyush Mishra. Great.

3. Music by Ajay-Atul. The music director duo started with Marathi films and quickly made their mark. Again, good decision to go with Ajay-Atul instead of the usual suspects – Shankar,Ehsaan, Loy or Vishal-Shekhar.

4. More roles for actors like Brijendra Kala and Pankaj Tripathi (is that him in the opening scene?) makes me feel that we are going in right direction.

The first look of (new) Agneepath is finally out. Produced by Karan Johar and directed by debutant Karan Malhotra, it stars Hrithik Roshan, Sanjay Dutta, Rishi Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra. Credits include Adapted Screenplay – Ila Datta & Karan Malhotra, Music – Ajay-Atul, Dialogues – Piyush Mishra and Lyrics – Amitabh Bhattacharya.

Interestingly it’s not an exact remake but more of an adaptation. Looks like high intensity drama on big scale and full of colours. And unlike any other KJo Productions. Well, that’s a good start. The only thing not working in the trailer is the logo of Dharma Productions and that weird background music with it. Dear KJo, now get rid of it. Enough of emotional attachment.

Zoya Akhtar made an assured debut with Luck By Chance. And her next film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara is ready for release. The film stars Hrithik Roshan, Abhay Deol, Farhan Akhtar, Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin. It’s written by Zoya and Reema Kagti, dialogues by Farhan Akhtar and has music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy.

And here is the trailer….

Aha, Senorita seems fun. And here’s the official synopsis…

Kabir ( Abhay Deol) has just met Natasha. 6 months later they are engaged.

He wants to go on an extended bachelor party. A 3 week road trip with Imraan (Farhan Akhtar) and Arjun (Hrithik Roshan) – his 2 friends since school. The only problem is Arjun is too tied up with work. After much emotional blackmail and cajoling the boys set off on a journey they were meant to take 4 years ago.

A fantasy holiday they had planned to take after college but never happened. A road trip where each one gets to do the ultimate sport of his choice and other two just have to do it with him. Whether they want to or not.

Kabir, Imraan and Arjun meet up in Barcelona and set off on an adventure that will not only make them iron out their differences but also face their fears, alter their perception, unravel their fabric, force them to break out of the box and teach them to seize the day.

In other words, a holiday that will change their life forever.

Rock On was Dil Chahta Hai with mid-life crisis, and this one also seems to be DCH Redux. What do you think?

You don’t need too much talent to put three guys on the poster. You surely don’t need talent to decide who should be shirtless if it’s a competition between Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol. And may be, you need bit of talent to decide that their faces should not be entirely visible. Just cut at the right point. Have you seen the poster of Zoya Akhtar’s Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara? Do check out.

And strangely this poster looks quite similar to the poster of Lords Of Dogtown. And the similarity is more than just the three guys on the poster. Do check it out.

What do you think? Do comment.

Tip – Gobbledyspook

Yes, 80 fucking crores! What are the guys at UTV Motion Pictures smoking ? Please pass the dope. And believe it or not, the budget is not the only shocking part of the film.

Try guessing director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s fees. As wild as you want. And if you are done with it, breathe easy and hold your jaws tightly. Bhansali has been paid Rs 25 fucking crore as writing & direction fees! Beat that. And 25 crore to the director whose last film was Saawariya! BTW, do the guys at UTV read scripts ? Doesn’t look like. Atleast thats what it seems from their last few releases. And those of you, who are still bothered about Saawariya – how it got made and financed, click here to read the curious case of Saawariya. Its a must read. Seems like UTV guys don’t subscribe to Open Magazine. Do it, its good. And Beware!

Also, Hrithik Roshan has been paid Rs 15crore and Aishwarya Rai’s fees is Rs 5 crore for Guzaarish, and both of them command much higher fee in the market. Bhansali’s 25crore fees also include the clause that he will get Hrithik & Aishwarya Rai  at a discounted rate. The production budget of the film is Rs 35 crore. And that’s how the total budget is Rs 80 crore ( 25 + 15 + 5 + 35)

Now, the big question is how do they plan to recover so much ? It seems UTV is clear on that front. If they are lucky, they will break even. If not, its just to make their CV look good, maintain their position in the share market, make it look big to get easy funding. Its all about the big picture with the biggest stars and a big director and Guzaarish is just a 80crore tool to make that picture look good. The film ?  Well, it seems like Prestige meets The Sea Inside meets The Diving Bell and the butterfly.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali is back. And with a bigger film – Guzaarish stars Hrithik Roshan and Aisharya Rai. Click on the play button to check out the trailer…

Produced by UTV, its shot by Sudeep Chatterjee and co-written by Bhavani Iyer. Bhansali has also composed the music for the film. There are eight songs in the film and 12 in the album. The film will release on 19th November. And here is the synopsis of the film….

The petitioner Mr Ethan Mascarenhas was a very well known magician.  In the year 1995, while performing one of his magic tricks met with an unfortunate accident. Since then he has been restricted to his bed and has been living as a quadriplegic. For 14 years he has been living like a vegetable….

BTW, after watching the trailer anyone thought its Sanjay NEELA Bhansali ? Again ! No, BLUE is the new BLACK.  Music, sound, set, design, colours, hadicapped characters…its all deja vu!

Zoya Akhtar is busy shooting her new film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara ( BTW, We Hate KJo-type Titles) in Spain. The film stars Hrithik Roshan, Abhay Deol, Farhan Akhtar, Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin. Some pics from the sets of the film has been leaked out by the fans. Take a look. Seems Zoya is going to undress every male actor of the film! So all you fans of Hrithik, Farhan & Abhay look ahead for some exciting days. Click on the thumbnails to take a closer look!
