What’s up filmdom ?

Dreams became a nightmare. Devadhaiyai Kanden might just make it to the 50 day mark. Dhanush still has a fall back mechanism. As Selvaraghavan – Dhanush – Sonia – Yuvan – Arvind Krishna join hands(again !) for Pudhupet [not Oru Naal Oru Kanavu], this could probably be Dhanush’s ladyluck for 2005. All the best mappilla.

Cheran would probably change back his new flicks’ name from Thavamai Thavam Irundhu back to Touring Talkies. Or he may not but gets the movie rolling at Kaaraikudi.

Don’t tell me Karan Johar is directing, again. Believe me he is. I thought he might just stop with his Star World show, Koffee with Karan, where he interviews all his friends and make a lumpsum out of it. And predictably, there is Shahrukh Khan with whom Karan has a blanket call sheet. Call Shahrukh anyday for Karan Johar’s movie, Shahrukh might just come down. The news is Abishek Bachchan is also roped for the new unnamed venture. Here too, there will be a typical maa(not jaya bachchan this time too!) who will stand in a corner for a mushy mushy song with the tears just waiting to roll of from her eyes. Wow !!

Not always I love the way Sanjay Leela Bhansali yaps about his movie. Except for some sensational sequences of Devdas, I am not a big fan of Bhansali. Probably his love for music is what I expect from every filmmaker. But something tells me, Black could be Bhansali’s best, till date. I would have opted for someone except the Big B on the lead role, however. Let’s see.

    Hi LG,

    I too feel Bhansali is the most overrated director of our times. I didn’t like Devdas but his “Hum dil de chuke sanam” which is a straight lift from “Andha 7 Natkal” was quite good. He has good ears for music. I saw the promos in Satyam theatre and it looked very promising and i have already booked the tickets for the movie, i think this will be his real best till date. Let us wait and watch.

    Hopefully the ‘director Bhansali’ returns with Black as I still love his first venture Khamoshi.
    I wish Devdas could have competed in Art direction category of Oscars where it richly deserved to be a nominee.As a movie..yuck!
    As far Karan goes,we cant blame the most famous “gay” boy of Indian cinema for rich-family tearjerkers!

    Guess what I can’t stand any of Karan Johar’s movies. There are so many flaws in his movies and people can’t see it. The movies are more on the other side.
    I guess he loves to see Sharuk Khan running.

    Honestly, he should stop making movies.
