Diwali Bonanza

This Diwali offered a triple bonanza to the movie goers. Not one but three big budgeted movies with top stars were released. The movies that were released All The Best, Blue and Main Aur Mrs Khanna had top notch stars of the bollywood. Millions were riding on the success of these movies. The movies were also an indicator of success starved bollywood this year. 2009 has relatively been a cold affair for bollywood business but thankfully Blue and All The Best managed to open on bumper notes. It is being said that combined collections of these two movies are now the best ever in the history of Bollywood. That is something to cheer for! Those stats also put at rest the rumours of economic recovery sustainability. According to trade sources, Blue has netted no less than 33 crores in the first week and All The Best has also managed to garner net 25 crores. However, Main Aur Mrs Khanna did not get rave reviews and opened on poor collections of mere 8 crores. All in all, bollywood netted 65 crores in Diwali week.

The earlier held record of highest grossing Diwali week was by Golmaal Returns and Fashion that had garnerd 60 crores. But i must point out that earlier collection was achieved on a 9 days extended run as both the films had released on Wednesday. That definitely makes it a cheerful reason for bollywood to celebrate this festive season. All The Best has continued its winning runs in following week whereas Blue has slightly been subsided. However it must be noted that collections would have been much higher had both films been released separately. But what has worked in their favour is subsequent releases like Fruit And Nut and Bal Ganesha proved to be dud at the box office. They have one more week to enjoy before London Dreams and Aladin releases.


Acid Factory – Movie Review

Acid Factory has been released recently and I must say movie has wonderful action and thriller sequences. The editing of the movie is up to the point and movie has a very sharp edge. Bollywood seems to have come of age with this movie. The twists in the movie leave you breathless and you are left asking for more. Actions scenes have same class as that of Hollywood movies. Screenplay is quite edgy and this movie definitely deserves more than what it got. Acid Factory works in three layers of past, present and future and all of them are seamlessly integrated. Other aspects like direction, screenplay, editing, sound and cinematography are surely praiseworthy. The movie has been produced by Sanjay Gupta and as we know him, he has kept giving us sharp and stylish action flicks. Movie clearly bears his trademark style.

Acid Factory has been directed by Suparn Verma and he has done a commendable job. The story revolves around a simple kidnap but that’s the beauty of the movie. There are numerous intriguing plots within and they have been managed well. I must mention name of action director, Tinu Verma who has definitely set a benchmark. The movie has been extensively shot in picturesque location of South Africa and that explains beautiful cinematography work displayed in the movie.

The movie stars Fardeen Khan, Dia Mirza, Irrfan Khan, Manoj Bajpai, Dino Morea, Aftab Shivdasani and Danny Denzongpa. All the actors have performed reasonably well and each character sketch is well defined. There is no over-lapping of characters. Fardeen Khan and Dia Mirza have done well in lead roles. Just a word of caution;. While you watch the movie, keep alert at all times else you might miss a vital link.


Film Stars Promoting Events and Indian Youth Icon Awards

Indian thrives on its two passions; movies and cricket. Now, it seems movie stars are also doing their bit to promote other non-movie related causes. The recent news is bollywood heartthrob Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif are going to promote upcoming 34th National Games to be held in Jharkhand. The Games will be organized from the period of 21st November – 5th December 2008. Earlier, movie stars have promoted cricket, football and hockey. For example, Akshay Kumar was the brand ambassador of IPL Delhi team whereas Salman Khan was presented during Nehru Cup Football tournament.

Choice of Akshay and Katrina makes sense because of their popularity amongst youths and additionally they are a hit couple as well. The plan is to get these two opular actors meet the press in metros like Bombay, New Delhi, Calcutta, Bangalore and many other Metros and try to get attention of the people towards the National Games in Jharkhand. Along with these two superstars, Daler Mehndi will also be participating in a cultural program, to be held on 12th October 2009, in Hotwar’s (Ranchi) Gymnastic stadium for promoting the event.  Hope, efforts of these stars manage to bring crowd to the stadium.
