Emraan Hashmi's Crook Review

Bollywood Hotest hero, Emraan Hashmi's next movie 'Crook It's Good To Be Bad' is going to deal with the serious issue of racism, which had occurred in Australia recently. Mohit Suri of 'Kalyug' fame will be directing the movie.

The director was quoted sharing an experience during one of his visits to Australia. Mohit said that he was once standing outside a 24 hour convenience store, which is situated in the Sunshine district of Melbourne. The most brutal attacks on Indians had taken place in that spot in Australia. Suri said that he was shocked to known how they beat up the Indian only because of religion and color.

Mohit felt that it was his duty to raise voice on this issue. He informed that while leaving the store, he saw an ad on the window of the store that read, 'Accommodation is available for the Indian students for Gujarati boys only'.

The director said that that particular ad was the starting point of the movie. He realized that the social evils like racism are part of all human heart. But it depends on an individual to decide whether it is good to turn bad in this current scenario or does one need to pay for being good.

'Crook It's Good To Be Bad' stars Emraan Hashmi, Arjan Bajwa of Fashion fame and new face Neha Sharma. In the movie, Emraan plays the guy, who has to decide to turn bad for good.

And while living there he is wooing two ladies at the same time. Speaking about the pre-requisite of kissing sequence he says, “So some amount of intimacy is justified.

Dabangg Review

Dabangg Producer: Arbaaz Khan
Dabangg Director: Abhinav Kashyap
Starring: Salman Khan, Arbaaz Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Sonu Sood, Vinod Khanna Dimple Kapadia
Music: Sajid Wajid, Lalit Pandit
Lyrics: Faiz Anwar, Lalit Pandit, Jalees Sherwani

For a masala film, the story is perfect, and the screenplay is razor-sharp and so quick you’re left with no time to breathe. Dialogues are powerful and very well-written. Character sketches though turn out to be the most important and the most vivid part of the film. The colorful character of Chulbul Pandey has been so well-written anybody would fall for his charming but raw personality. Subplots are commendably woven into most part of the screenplay and don’t look out of place.

If the writing is excellent, the execution by Kashyap is top-notch. Aadmi mein dum hai. He handles each scene with so much finesse that you’ll end up getting gripped with the whole film. I can’t wait to see what Kashyap intends to direct next.

Mahesh Limaye’s cinematography captures the raw, gritty essence of the film where it’s needed, and also ends up beautifying the more romantic scenes. Camerawork is terrific. Action by Vijayan Master (who coincidentally also choreographed the action of Salman’s last hit Wanted, which also fits into the same genre) is mind-blowing, and the edit of the action by Pranav V Dhiwar makes the sequences so stylish it has the wow factor attached to it. The music of the film is fun and frothy when needed and soft and classy when needed. Numbers like “Munni Badnaam” and “Hud Hud Dabangg” are powerful because they contain terrific visuals, which do not elude romantic songs like “Tere Mast Mast Do Nain” and “Chori Kiya Re Jiya”. Visual effects are realistic and sophisticated at the same time.

Dabangg would surely be incomplete without Salman Khan. The arrogance and chutzpah mixed with a more childish and cute personality that he has exuded throughout the film has been brought to life with such elan you have to admit that Salman’s the star performer in the film. New entrant Sonakshi Sinha impresses and shows that acting’s in her blood with her short but powerfully portrayed role. Sonu Sood is convincing as the malicious antagonist. Vinod Khanna is his usual powerful self in this short supporting role too. Arbaaz Khan is convincing. Others like Tinnu Anand, Om Puri, Mahie Gill, Dimple Kapadia and Anupam Kher are efficient.

Dabangg impresses, and how! Sure it’s not Wanted but it’s much better than it in terms of execution, editing, styling, performances and structure of the whole film. Via the barrage of parallel cinema coming out in Hindi film through new directors like Ayan Mukherji ( Wake Up Sid) and other more experienced ones like Kashyap’s brother Anurag (Dev.D), this movie turns out to be a hugely pleasant surprise for people thirsting for non-stop entertainment for the whole of two hours in a film.

Akshay to Host Jculinary Show

Khatron Ke Khiladi Akshay Kumar is set to return to TV Screen with Amul MasterChef India show.

Akshay kumar's love for cooking is well known and now the actor is all set to host and judge Amul MasterChef India that will be aired on Star Plus starting Oct 16.

"I am very happy to be returning to my roots after so many years. My two favourites - cooking and camera/entertainment are coming together and I am excited to be a part of it.

"I have been following the international version of MasterChef regularly and I am glad that now this interesting challenge will be open to the Indian audience," the actor told reporters here.

The show that will have 12 contestants, will give a chance to passionate cooks to showcase their skills and will also groom them to become the ultimate professionals of the art. Chefs Kunal Kapoor and Ajay Chopra will judge the contestants along with Akshay.

When asked, what is it that he likes to cook, the actor revealed: "I don't cook very often now. It's only when I want to relax and rejuvenate myself, that I cook. I like cooking different types of paranthas."

Akshay used to work as a chef in Thailand before he got into Bollywood.

"I had gone to Thailand to train myself in martial arts. That time cooking was the only job available so I did that. Then I started enjoying it. I used to find it quite easy and interesting," he said.

Ranbir, the Next Amitabh Bachchan

Bollywood Director Siddharth Anand is apparently confident about Ranbir Kapoor, the hero of his film ‘Anjaana Anjaani’. Siddharth finds him promising and hardworking among the younger league, with a prospective talent to become the next Amitabh Bachchan.

Convinced with Ranbir’s caliber in acting, Siddharth stated that he’s got everything it takes to be the complete bollywood film hero that Bachchan was in his days.

Further praising about his film’s hero, the director believes that if Ranbir chooses to do an action film, he would definitely fill the void that Amitabh had created.

It is believed that Ranbir who has already worked with Siddharth in his earlier film ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’, was always made to do the strangest of things in his films.

In his last movie, he made the actor to stand at the tip of a cliff for the ‘Khuda jaane’ song in ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’ even though he was aware that the young actor has a vertigo problem.

For one sequence in ‘Anjaana Anjaani’, he made Ranbir to stand in the freezing waters of the Pacific Ocean.
