First look of my upcoming film…
Sanjay Leela Bansali sir, yeh kya hogaya aap ko..
The halmark of a genius is consistency. Despite you failing with Saawariya and Guzarish, we din’t loose belief or faith in you. We knew that you will bounce back. But you got scared, you compromised your values and talent, you took the easy way out and made Raamleela. For what sir, Money? Is money so difficult for you to earn it your way?
A film maker of your stature, falling to commercial traps. I know, as a Producer you made loads of money with Rowdy Rathod. But as a director, did you have to use those traps in Raamleela? Where was the need for a person like you who made films like Khamoshi, Hum Dil Dechuke Sanam, Black and Devdas.. they gave you all the name, fame, money, and awards. You are a person who understands emotions so well, when then did you make a compromise now?
The set up of the story was comical! God knows why the lead pair fall in love. You then wasted the first half of the film with stupid scenes. In the second half, you started showing your self, but gave up, because you din’t have anything to build on. At the end of the film, there were no emotions left in your audience, when your lead pair die. Audiences were looking at them with blank faces.. without emotion, without a tear. Reason? You din’t set up their love. You did show flashes of your self in the second half, but you lost it over all.
Sir, how can you kill a classic story of Romeo and Juliet like this? To top it, the dialogues were full of double meanings, dirty, and embarrassing at times.
As a great fan of yours, I still want to see your films for the way you make them, not the way others make it.
please don’t sell your soul for few more crores.. please..
Hoping to see “YOU” back soon sir.
Two weeks back I said the same about Mr. Rakesh Om Prakash Mehra, Mr.Prasoon Joshi, Mr.Farhan Akhtar with their films.
Guys yeh kyaa kar raheho…
Nikhil Advani, how can you do a film with out an item song, a comedy track and no duets in foreign locations. This is too much!
Mr Irfan Khan, we all know how mad you are. You have proved it time again, so I don’t want to talk about you, because, mai poore pagalon se baat nahi karthaa. But, what is wrong with you Arjun Rampal, how the hell did you agree to do this film? And you Mr. Rishi Kapoor, you had such a good soft image, why jump for this character?
By the way did any of you know who was driving the film?.. No..?? what?? No… how can any of you do a film without knowing it! Come to us and see, the smallest of the small heroes ask for it… come and learn from them.
The less said the better about you Shruthi Hassan, what was your character in the film? That of a prostitute. Did you ask them what your costumes would be? How much they would spend on them? You din’t ask for a single dream sequence song? How did you agree to have a scar on your face, right across your beautiful cheek? Did you forget how beautifully we treat you here? We give you such expensive costumes, show your body so well, make you look so glamorous in what ever role you do. How can you leave all that and go do that role.. ha.. what else can it be.. but madness!
Huma Qureshi, the less spoken about you, the better.
And who are those mad guys who funded this project.. hmm.. Dar Motion Emmay Entertainment.. that too Rs.30 crores. Where are the commercial elements? How can you invest so much money? How the hell did you think you will get back your money?
Thank God I am not part of the Bollywood, I am in a better place.. here we don’t take any risk.. we play safe with commercial elements… and at least our money is safe. Or, so we think!
Nikhil Advani, I think you also should come here to learn how to make films..
What are you thinking, I am asking to come here not to go to Pakistan (after seeing your film you wont be allowed there) if you don’t know the way, tag along Mr.Rakesh Om Prakash Mehra, Mr.Prasoon Joshi, and Mr.Farhan Akhtar. And get that guy Irfan too, jo bilkul bigad gayaa, and please don’t forget to get Mr.Rampal too. If Huma wants to come over, let her also join you. kuch sikhegi.. Oh, and don’t worry about Shruthi Hassan. You can find her here shooting for some film. Let me warn you… you might not recognize her, because she looks way too glamorous than you can imagine..
The day you land here, we will call it the “D-Day”.
When a generation decides to take refuge in its past and cast aside its present , you know that something is wrong out here. It speaks of the inability of the present to match its past and better it. This is called intellectual and cultural regression of a time.
What makes Sachin Tendulkar special . It is just not his fantastic game or superior technique or his uncontroversial humble personality. When you watch Sachin , you dont need Sunil Gavaskar or Kapil Dev . Its not that they are not great. They are indisputable legends…but Sachin Tendulkar is the man of the present. His game gives you the belief that the present is as good as the past and also fills you with hope that the future will be even better. That is Sachin Tendulkar, the legend of the PRESENT.
Similarly when you watch movies today. In Bollywood, the present is definitely finding its mark. Movies like Taara Zameen Par, 3 Idiots, Paa, Kaminey and My Name is Khan give you a feeling that the present is in safe and talented hands. It reassures you that there are people who have the drive and passion to make the current generation sit up and take notice of their skills.
Sadly the same cannot be said of Tollywood. Imagine a 52 year old film like Maya Bazaar ruling the roost at the box office and making more money than all the other releases….Its not that Maya Baazar doesn’t deserve what it gets…it does…it is a great movie of that time…a true legend ….but lets think about this…why we are watching Maya Baazar… to remember the olden times?
Or, is it because there is a sheer dearth of good sensible cinema? If the latter is true, then today’s filmmakers have some serious thinking to do. We need to introspect and accept. The public has finally spoken. It is their report card on us. They have appraised us. They are telling us that they don’t need us till we make their present sensible. Yes the audience is giving signals. The sooner we understand this the better.
