Seen Jacqueline Fernandez and Ritesh Deshmukh in Aladin? The movie, also starring Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjay Dutt, releases tomorrow.

Jackie is a former Miss Sri Lanka. Half Malaysian and half Sri Lankan, she has modeled for quite a few brands, and this is her first film. Ritesh looks boyish and quite smart. So basically they make a good pair visually. Once the movie comes out we’ll know if she can act, and if the two can create more magic in a film that is already all about magic.

Indian Nightmare!

The film London Dreams stars Salman Khan, Ajay Devgn and Asin, although looking at the Salman Khan – Asin combination one would want to term it nightmare.

Asin is pretty in her own right, and there is no doubt that Salman is every bit the rock star that he is called. But to bring these two people together seems like a big mistake.

Vipul Amrutlal Shah, the Director, who has also Directed Namastey London and Produced Singh is Kinng must have has his own reasons. We’ll have to watch the film on 30th October 2009 to know if he got his reasons right.

Picture Perfect!

Finally an on-screen couple that makes sense. I for one was tired of seeing Katrina Kaif with older men like Akshay Kumar, Govinda and Salman Khan. About time she was paired with someone her age, don’t you think?

At least Ranbir Kapoor had a better mix, as he was paired with older and younger women almost equally. Amongst the older lot there has been Bipasha Basu and Konkona Sen Sharma, while the younger clan has Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor.

Katrina has always been made to look a little older than she is, so she doesn’t look way younger than her partner on screen. But since Ranbir and Katrina are round about the same age, in Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani she is looking her age, as is Ranbir. What a relief!

If you’ve seen the trailers you’ll agree with me when I say they look so awesomely adorable together. I can see hints of chemistry there, whether it will work when we watch the film is what I’m waiting to know.

This radio is off its tune

That Himesh Reshammiya is not exactly a great actor is no secret. And that he doesn’t look too great with any of his co-stars is as universal truth as well. So when the trailers of Radio showcase a haggard Himesh with the effervescent Shenaz Treasurywala it comes as no surprise that they look pathetic as a couple.

With a cute face and infectious smile to boot , Shenaz is almost a decade younger than Himesh, and it shows. She has been known for her bubbly image since her MTV days, and it has stayed on.

One look at Hmesh and you know how wrong this couple is. It’s not that opposites don’t look good together; it’s something to do with Himesh. Is there any female actor in Bollywood that can look “good” with him?
