Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is back after the debacle of Delhi – 6. But this time as a producer.

Teen Thai Bhai is produced by PVR Pictures and ROM. It stars Om Puri, Shreyas Talpade and Deepal Dobriyal. The film is directed by debutant Mrigdeep Singh Lamba. Lyrics are by Gulzar and music is Ranjit Barot and Sukhwinder Singh.

The film was earlier titled Mad, Madder, Maddest. The cast is interesting for sure but seems like the film is going to be slapstick.

If its about the big idea, then UTV surely deserves a pat on their back. Check out the website of their new film Aage Se Right and you will understand what we are saying. The address is www.gunontherun.com. Putting a bullet in a gun chamber was never so much fun!

Cast : The film stars Shreyas Talpade( Cop), Kay Kay (terroist) , Shiv Pandit(tapori), Mahie Gill (journalist) and Shenaz Treasurywala (aspiring actress).

Produced by UTV Spotboy and directed by debutant Indrajit Nattoji, Aage Se Right is a comic caper.

Synopsis : Set in Mumbai, Aage Se Right is all about chance and coincidence. Its five days of chaos, panic and mayhem. It revolves around a cop and terrorist. The cop ( Shreyas) loses his gun and the terrorist (Kay Kay) loses his heart. The two worlds meet and it leads to hilarious situations. A satire of our chaotic times.

Nothing can beat Subhash Ghai’s enthu. He is making one after another crap, living in those woods, and he still believes that whatever he has made or making, its all classic. Not now, but 20 years later. Audacity of Hope. Anyway, here comes one more to add to the Ghai crapfest, Paying Guests.

Have a look at the promo or is it theatrical trailer or whatever it is, and you can make out the call for the auditions – The morons of the world, everyone get together.
