Yes, we were missing in action. The excuses are many and they are all so silly. Here we are back and with an exclusive! The first look of Vikramaditya Motwane’s debut film Udaan! Plus some more! The film is in the official selection list  of Cannes Film Festival (Un Certain Regard Section) 2010. Have a look.

Also, here is the official synopsis of the film….

After being abandoned for eight straight years in boarding school, Rohan returns to the small industrial town of Jamshedpur and finds himself closeted with an authoritarian father and a younger half brother who he didn’t even know existed. Forced to work in his father’s steel factory and study engineering against his wishes, he tries to forge his own life out of his given circumstances and pursue his dream of being a writer.

The film is written by Vikramaditya Motwane & Anurag Kashyap. Its produced by Anurag Kashyap & Sanjay Singh. Strangely, UTV rejected the script twice earlier but came on board as soon as the film got the Cannes stamp! Not surprising that they produced “Chance Pe Dance”!  It has music by Amit Trivedi and lyricist is Amitabh Bhattacharya. The main cast includes Rajat Barmecha, Ronit Roy, Aayan Boradia and Ram Kapoor.

And here are some more stills from the film…

Imtiaz AliYes, Seven fucking crore! For Love Aaj Kal. And we are happy to know and share the info. Because this is one director who made it all by himself. From nobody to saat-lakhiya director as people in Jamshedpur must be calling him. 

He was paid only 25 Lakhs or so for Jab We Met, which is hard to believe. But it may be true because Socha Na Tha was a big flop though we don’t know of anyone who doesn’t like it. Some even prefer it more than Jab We Met. But as they say, strange are the ways of life! Learn to live and deal with it.

From the promos and songs of Love Aaj Kal, it looks like win-win situation for Imtiaz again. He is trying to get Hrithik Roshan for his next film. It seems Roshan baba is giving him sleepless nights to him. We will keep you posted on that too.

Here is a recent interview of Imtiaz Ali – on his love-on-the-run triology, Jamshedpur days, dialogue writing and more. Enjoy.

Whats in a name!

BTW, someone whose opinion we value, told us today that we are fucking pretentious ( is the spelling correct ? Hmmm…we are not sure). Because our blog is called fight club and we are happy to serve gossip. Its NOT done. Ouch!

Not that it matter much to us but we are thinking about other options now. Because we believe everyone loves gossip. Some just deny it. So our fight club will surely have gossip. If not, we are willing to change the name of our blog.  We have shortlisted some options so that the theory of gossip gels well with our blog’s name. Let us know what do you prefer.
