First Look: Raees

Double dipping in nothing new, especially for Asian actors and India is notorious for overlapping projects. Therefore, it’s no surprise that Shah Rukh Khan is not only currently filming his reunion with Kajol but also Ritesh Sidhwani‘s (Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Kathik Calling Karthik) film Raees. Shooting began in April releasing its first teaser in mid-July. Continue reading First Look: Raees

First Look: Diwale

My favorite OTP anywhere, doing anything (EVER!) is slated to release their eighth motion picture film together by the end of the year.

First Look: Chennai Express

Trains are the transport of rom-coms this summer (it seems) but Chennai Express is not just about the romance, it’s an action romantic comedy, like no one but Rohit Shetty can do. He’s credited with famously funny films like Bol Bachchan and Singham, where the hilarity is much more than your daily guffaw but a stitch split fest, chock full of fantastical fodder [once reality has been completely obliterated]. The trailer premiered only days ago and I must say, I don’t care as much about the romance, as the village thugs that seem to be a Shetty staple.

This is also father-to-be, Shah Rukh Khan‘s first release this year, therefore, it’s no doubt worth the courtesy glance. I haven’t seen Khan do a full blown comedy in quite some time and this being his inaugural Shetty project, I’m positive we’re in for some outlandish shenanigans.

Filmfare’s Flashback Friday

Filmfare Magazine posted their Flashback Friday pick of the week, earlier today, with a cascade of photos from Aditya Chopra‘s first film, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and random facts about the film. It’s amazing how time flies, for we are actually creeping upon the 20th Anniversary of the film and my little grey cells are swarming with ideas of how the Fraternity plans to mark the occasion.
