Amitabh’s compliment for Madhur Bhandarkar

Amitabh Bachchan, the legendary actor of Indian Cinema has made a great compliment for the director Mdhur Bhandarkar. In front of a packed audience Big B said that Bhandarkar is the new age Hrishikesh Mukherjee. It was last Saturday. Amitabh Bachchan felicitated Madhur Bhandarkar as the best contemporary film director. In a ceremony organized by 'Spandan Art', Big B presented the title in the form of a Memento to Madhur for winning the National Award for Best Director for his film Traffic Signal. This is his third National Award after Chandni Bar and Page 3.

What’s Bhandarkar’s reaction after Big B’s compliment on him? "What can I really say about appreciation like this and that too from a person of the stature of Big B", says Bhandarkar who is still trying to come to terms with the comment made by Amitabh Bachchan.

"I have grown on his films. Anari, Anupama, Satyakam, Guddi, Anand, Bawarchi, Namak Haram, and Golmaal - just look at the kind of films he has made over the years. There are so many genres that he touched upon; the list is endless." Bhanadarkar said.

While talking he got emotional and said "As a kid I used to watch Hrishikesh Mukherjee films in my video library. His films inspired me as they spoke about real issues and treaded a real path while being commercial and entertaining. Though I am still learning over the years, I try to be inspired by great filmmakers like him. I hope a few decades down the line, I get the same kind of love, affection and recognition as greats like Hrishikesh Mukherjee get more than 50 years after making their first film”.

Amitabh Bachchan in his early stage of bollywood career he worked with Hrishikesh Mukherjee in several films like Anand, Mili, Abhimaan, Namak Haraam, Jurmana and Chupke Chupke.

Blogging- the latest trend in Bollywood

“My blog will allow me to express myself, share and reflect my emotions, thoughts, opinions and listen to what people have to say to me.

My adda (blog) will be the only destination where I’ll openly state my views and also discuss the same with all.” – Amitabh Bachchan.

Blogging has become the latest trend in Bollywood. After Aamir Khan Amitabh Bachchan has also started blogging and interacting with his fans through his blogs. After he started writing daily on his blog it becomes hot news and also gossips are there that others are thinking to make their own blogs. Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan both are the superstars of Indian cinema. So why they’re writing on their blogs on regular who generally have tight and busy schedules? How do they manage time for blogs writing? Perhaps they find it’s a unique opportunity to interact with the fans and also peep into their hearts. Also they can state directly to their fans about the false rumors if anything going around him.

It’s really very funny and also interesting to hear when Bollywood Superstar Shahrukh Khan says “My first income was just fifty rupees”!! In a personal interview he revealed that truth. Shahrukh Said when he was asked about his first income “If I am not wrong then my first income was just fifty rupees. There was Sri Ram centre beside my home. Even Film Fare Awards ceremonies were held at the centre. Once there was the concert of Ghulam Ali Sahab at that centre. I volunteered in the show and earned fifty bucks for that. I took my friends to visit Taj Mahal with that amount.”

Shahrukh Khan used to host KBC, a game show in a private TV channel and recently he is hosting another game show where the amount has reached to five crores.

The man who started his career with just fifty rupees has now become the heart throb of millions and millions of Indians. Hats off to your King Khan!!

Ram Gopal Varma’s scariest movie: ‘Phoonk’

After releasing ‘Sarkar Raj’ director Ram Gopal Varma is all set with his next scary movie ‘Phoonk’. This movie is based on the story of black magic! This will be his next horror film after ‘Bhoot’. But the director himself does not believe in God and any dark forces. "I have experienced certain things or heard a first-hand account of some other people's experiences which in the least can be said to be hair-raising and inexplicable. Being an atheist I would like to believe that there is a rational and scientific explanation to each and every one of these occurrences. But till I don't get an understanding of the same, I am forced to presume that they are supernatural happenings" said Mr. Varma.

Ram Gopal Varma is going to introduce a known Kannada actor Sudeep in ‘Phoonk’. The other castings are Amruta Khanvilkar, Ahsaas Channa, Shrey Bawa, Jyothi SubhasAshwini Kalsekar, Anu Ansari and Zakir Hussain. “Phoonk is the story of a confirmed atheist whose belief systems are shaken up when his loved ones are subjected to unspeakable horrors by forces whose very existence his rational mind refuses to accept. It is also the story of a fanatical devotee who is forced to turn her back on God in the face of traumatic experiences" Ram Gopal Varma said. He added "Don't say I didn't warn you as it is also a very scary film, but the fear element is not just on the surface level like for instance in a film like Bhoot. It seeps into you and plagues your entire belief system thereby making you highly vulnerable. It will also put you into an emotional state wherein you would start fearing the most inane objects which you would normally take for granted in the daily course of life."

The releasing date of ‘Phoonk’ has been settled on 22nd August 2008. So get ready for some chilling experience as Bollywood now brings you black magic along with other entertainments!!

Sarkar Raj- an outstanding movie

Sarkar Raj, the much awaited movie of Director Ram Gopal Varma, after the disaster of ‘Aag’ has been released on 6th June 2008. But ‘Sarkar Raj’ will never make you dissatisfied! In one word it’s a nice creation of director Ram Gopal Varma. Anybody could think that ‘Shiva’ and ‘Satya’ are his greatest creation. But after watching ‘Sarkar Raj’ it’ll be quite difficult to say which one is his greatest creation. This is an outstanding movie from all aspects, having a strong storyline which can be expected to get the leading position in Box Office!!

Few great scenes of ‘Sarkar Raj’:

*Ash's first meeting with the Bachchans to explain the power project;* Govind Namdev trying to bribe Abhishek; * The Bachchans' visit to Dilip Prabhawalkar's residence; * The Bachchans' discussion over Kay Kay [who was shot dead by Abhishek in the prequel]; * The turning point in the film [not to be disclosed]; * The penultimate reels when the real culprit stands exposed. It hits you like a ton of bricks.

Let’s discuss about the individual performances. Amitabh Bachchan, expectedly, comes up with a marvelous performance. He's as ferocious as a wounded tiger in the finale and takes the film to great heights.

Abhishek Bachchan is also very good. His persona, style and look are just amazing!! But still if any rank will be given to him and his father, father will be little bit ahead of his son. The last few minutes Amitabh Bachchan has seized all the attraction towards him. What a marvelous performance!!

Now it’s the time for Aishwarya. The corporate look fits her well. Nice acting!

The film is now running everywhere and we need to wait for few more days to know what the output is coming from Box Office collection. After all audiences are the real judges!!
