Not idiotic

November 19, 2009

Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor. Is that a couple movie audiences should watch out for? Definitely yes!

Both are good looking (is that an understatement?), have a huge fan following, and are great actors. If you’ve seen the trailers of their film, 3 Idiots, you will agree that they make an interesting couple. Check out their song here:

It seems from the video that they had a whale of a time together, and it’s not a secret how fond they are of each other. Aamir has apparently said that Kareena is so pretty, one can never get tired of admiring her all day long! Kareena of course accepts all the praise graciously, for she has a lot of respect for Mr Khan.

3 Idiots is scheduled to release on 25th December. Perfect timing, considering that it will be vacation time. Plus the film promises to be a lotta fun, and perhaps will have some situational comedy instead of the usual slapstick. Aamir has the tendency to get people’s hopes up with his films!

Imprisoned

November 3, 2009

Madhur Bhandarkar has a knack for getting together people you wouldn’t have imagined. Look at Priyanka Chopra and Arjan Bajwa in Fashion, or Bipasha Basu and Kay Kay Menon in Corporate.

He’s done it again in Jail with Neil Nitin Mukesh and Mugdha Godse.

They both look good. No second thoughts there. Neil is as handsome as handsome can be. And Mugdha is a Goddess in her own right. They make for excellent eye candy and would look awesome together in a photo shoot. But somehow, at least in the trailers, they don’t look too comfortable with each other.

Waiting for the movie to release on 6th November 2009, and hoping that my observation is wrong!

Magical?

aladin-final

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

jackie-final

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?

ran

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.

kat

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.

shenaz-1

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.

himesh

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?

Bollywood doesn’t learn…

September 22, 2009

History teaches us to learn from our mistakes. But apparently this axiom doesn’t seem to apply to Bollywood. Why else would the disastrous combination of Govinda and Sushmita Sen be repeated?

do-knot-disturb-wallpaper

David Dhawan’s Do Knot Disturb stars Govinda, Sushmita, Lara Dutta and Ritesh Deshmukh. Sush plays Govinda’s wife in the film. If you’ll remember, they were cast together in 2001 in another David Dhawan movie, Kyo Kii… Main Jhuth Nahin Bolta. The film bombed as did the pairing.

Did Mr Dhawan think that wouldn’t happen again? Maybe it will, maybe it won’t!

Do-Knot-Disturb

Both actors are great by themselves. But a pretty and sophisticated lady like Sush with the old yet funny Govinda…time will tell whether they can make it work this time…

Missing chemistry

September 15, 2009

main-aur-mrs-khanna01

Kareena Kapoor and Salman Khan. What kind of a couple is that? For one, he looks way too old. True, he’s about as old as Shah Rukh or Aamir, but somehow, in the recent past he has been looking weird and not-so-smart-and-sexy. To top it all, Kareena has been looking wow. So how is this pair going to work for the audience in Main aur Mrs Khanna?

kareena-kapoor

If you’ve seen the trailers of the film, you’ll see that Kareena looks as gorgeous as ever. Kambakkht Ishq may have flopped, but she looked super hot. Courtesy her sexy figure and some fabulous clothes and accessories by Shabina Khan and Aki Narula.

Perhaps an effort has been made to give Kareena a more mature look in Main aur Mrs Khanna, so she doesn’t look like Salman’s daughter. But the fact remains that he still looks a whole lot older. She respects him a great deal (in real life), but that doesn’t mean they look good together. There is zero chemistry there!

Time to call it quits for Salman? Or maybe he should stick to playing the ever-irritating host on Dus ka Dum.

I do?

September 11, 2009

Ok this is confusing. Are they engaged or not? I’m talking about Imran Khan and Avantika Malik

1235385519071

If reports are to be believed, he proposed to her on her Birthday, in the presence of all her guests. Well obviously she said yes. Awwwwww!

quantum-of-solace-premiere09

But then there is news of this being just a rumour! What are we to believe?

Whether the couple is indeed engaged or not, is immaterial. The point is they look so adorable together!

imran-khan

Imran’s films might or might not do well, but who cares! He’s cute, and with Avantika he looks even more so. Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na launched him big time; Kidnap failed and so did Luck. But Avantika has always been by his side, and hopefully will always be. Touchwood!

Young or old…what’s there:P

September 8, 2009

Female actors being paired with men who are old enough to be their fathers is a trend in the film industry. Look at Katrina and Akshay, or Shah Rukh and Deepika. So is the fact that a lot of older female artists are playing the love interests of younger men. Case in point: Shahid Kapoor and Rani Mukherjee in Dil Bole Hadippa.

dil-bole-hadippa-stills25

If you’ve seen the trailers you would have noticed that Shahid has been given a more grown-up look so as to look older than Rani. Not very tough considering that she is only a few years his senior. But the fact is that she has a very mature face, and Shahid looks young for his age.

rani-mukherjee

Perhaps to not look like his mother Rani has worked out extensively. As a result she is looking younger, and her body definitely looks more toned.

There seems to be some level of comfort between the two, as witnessed in the songs; how good the chemistry really is we’ll know once we watch the film!
