Will Iron Baby outdo Iron Man ?

After the teetering jumble that was Iron Man 2, this fan-made “Iron Baby” trailer has tottered its way into my heart. I’d rather watch two hours of Iron Baby than another attempt to recapture the first movie’s moxie. (Sorry, Mark!)

Kites would go in profit(irrespective of its reviews)

Film: Kites
Rating: 2/5

Banner: Filmkraft Productions (I) Pvt Ltd
Cast: Hrithik Roshan, Kangna Ranaut, Barbara Mori, Kabir Bedi, Nick Brown, Yuri Suri
Music: Rajesh Roshan
Cinematography: Ayananka Bose
Director: Anurag Basu
Producers: Rakesh Roshan, Sunaina Roshan
Release Date: May 21, 2010

Some movies you go with expectation and get disappointed and some surprise you out of the blue. This is neither of them. It disappointed me even though I had very low expectations. All the hype about celebrities showing off at the premiere was even more nauseating given the output. At best it can be described as a cheap medley of bollywood romance, pointless car chases and stale humor.

A good movie is not about big budget or having stars on board or overt display of emotions to entice the audience. Its about story telling, novelty, about subtly brining out the nuances of human sensibilities and above all expressing director’s/writer’s heart. The actors should be a device for the plot and not the other way round. Kites lacks on all counts besides its overly long and becomes even painful by the end of it.

All the hype was just created to get the returns, for people will be curious to see it .

The movie seems to be an advertisement or a demo reel for Mr. Roshan for his entry into Hollywood. He has it all – looks, dancing and presence. The one thing he lacks is the ability to act. There is no chemistry between him and the lead actress, played by Barbara Mori.

I sincerely hope kites won’t set a new trend.

But , guess what? ,i have a gut feeling that kites would do well in terms of money,owing to its hype.It seems that film makers are more concerned about its promotion rather than its content.

Hrithik on twitter tweets today @iHrithik Overwehlmed !!!!! Thank you guys!!! Big big hug to alllll of you!!!! What a beautiful day !!! Love u all !!!

Remember ,same happened  with “Housefull”, it was a hit in Box-office beacuse it made whopping 60,99,00,000 (Total net gross)

Rajneeti Promotion in Lucknow through Radio Mirchi

Prakash Jha along with Katrina Kaif,Ajay Devgan and Manoj Bajpai, was in Radio Mirchi studios ( Lucknow) for the promotion of the film.

Jha discarded that Katrina has played a non-glamorous role in the movie.”Katrina has portrayed a beautiful, young glamorous lady in the first half of but in second half, when film takes a twist, she has been taken a non-glamorous avatar,”

Mr Jha said the script took six years to develop.

On the controversy of Kamal Rashid Khan claiming the title of the film belongs to him, Jha said everyone needs popularity and this was mere an act to come into the limelight.
Denying that the character of Katrina Kaif is based on the character of Sonia Gandhi,  Jha  said Katrina has played a strong lady with glamorous role in first half to non-glamorous role in second half and this has nothing to do with any political personality.
Katrina Kaif, answering a question, said she watched several videos of lady politicians.
”Prakash gave me video footages of several lady politicians including Sonia and Priyanka Gandhi and this role has nothing to do with either Sonia or Priyanka,” Katrina said.Katrina also  hired a hindi teacher for this role

”This is not a  documentary or  preachy film,” she added.

Ajay Devgan, the actor of the film, said characters of the film have the shades of the characters of the great epic ‘Mahabharata’.

Prakash Jha said “Ajay plays Karna, Ranbir Kapoor plays Arjun,Manoj Bajpai plays Duryodhan and  Katrina plays Dropadi

Answering a question, Ajay said that politics has become a dirty game and good people are no more joining it.
