G I JOE – RETALIATION

 

STORY.

The G.I. Joes are framed for stealing nuclear warheads from Pakistan by Zartan (Arnold Vosloo) who is impersonating the President of the United States (Jonathan Pryce). The entire team is eliminated in a military strike with Duke (Channing Tatum) as one of the casualties. Roadblock (Dwayne Johnson), Flint (D.J. Cotrona) and Lady Jaye (Adrianne Palicki) are the only survivors.

Meanwhile, Storm Shadow (Lee Byung-hun) and ex-Joe Firefly (Ray Stevenson) rescue Cobra Commander (Luke Bracey) from a penitentiary in Germany. Storm Shadow is injured during the escape and retreats to a temple in the Himalayas to recover. Upon learning that he is alive, the Blind Master (RZA), leader of the Arashikage Clan, sends Snake Eyes (Ray Park) and his apprentice Jinx (Elodie Yung), Storm Shadow’s cousin, to capture Storm Shadow so he can answer for the murder of his uncle, the Hard Master.

Roadblock, Flint, and Lady Jaye return to the United States where they set up a base of operations in a rundown gym. After Zartan announces that Cobra will replace the Joes as America’s main protective unit, Lady Jaye deduces that someone is impersonating the President and Roadblock leads them to General Joseph Colton (Bruce Willis) who provides them with weapons and helps them infiltrate a fundraising event that the President will be attending, where Lady Jaye steals a sample of his DNA and confirms that he is Zartan. They escape after a brief confrontation with Firefly and Zandar (Matt Gerald), the head of the Presidential Detail and a member of Cobra.

Snake Eyes and Jinx locate and capture Storm Shadow after a battle with ninjas and take him back to Japan where Storm Shadow reveals that Zartan murdered the Hard Master and he joined Cobra to avenge his uncle, embittered that the clan didn’t believe in his innocence. Storm Shadow then accompanies Snake Eyes and Jinx as they join the Joes’ efforts to stop Cobra.

Zartan invites the world leaders to a summit, where he blackmails them into disabling their nuclear arsenals, and reveals that he has created Project Zeus: Seven orbital kinetic bombardment weapons of mass destruction at his command. He destroys central London to prove his superiority and threatens to destroy other capitals if the countries don’t submit to Cobra. However, Storm Shadow betrays Cobra Commander and kills Zartan, revealing Cobra’s deception to the world leaders. While Snake Eyes, Jinx and Flint fight Cobra’s soldiers, Cobra Commander activates the remaining six weapons and instructs Firefly to protect the launch device. Firefly is killed in combat with Roadblock, who deactivates and destroys the orbital weapons. Meanwhile, Colton and Lady Jaye rescue the President.

Cobra Commander escapes during the battle and Storm Shadow disappears after avenging his uncle. The President initiates a manhunt on Cobra Commander, and reinstates the Joes with Roadblock leading Flint, Lady Jaye, Snake Eyes and Jinx, and recruiting more soldiers to join them. Roadblock swears to avenge Duke by capturing Cobra Commander.

 

CRITIC VIEW.

G I JOE a movie to watch with popcorn’s in hand and brain at home.Well everbody knows the sequel to The Rise of Cobra was going to hit the marquee soon,but not worth waiting.The Director Jon Chu seem to be more engaged into arizona then scripting.

 

There is a president faking the real,there are funny name characters and a cheap effects of some video games to enthrall you [mountain chase of ninjas to praise] and not enough to this at end there is a shocker that they are going to return soon with another mindless action saga.oops wanna watch.

HIMMATWALA.

 

STORY.

Everybody knows blockbuster Himmatwala ( 1983 Bollywood action drama film directed by K. Raghavendra Rao starring Jeetendra and Sridevi).As again in 1983′s Himmatwala itself was a remake of a Telugu film Ooriki Monagadu of 1981 Directed by Uddalapathi Narasimha Rao.

 

CRITIC VIEW.

Somebody will please stand up and voice a opinion about how a remake’s are becoming a devil’s workshop.

 

Well here is the answer SAJID KHAN’S ‘HIMMATWALA’ is a ridiculous tribute to the original and will totally disgust you of why you are sitting in a cinema hall, instead catchin the older one running on in a channel would had been a better choice.

 

AJAY DEVGAN as JEETENDRA  average

TAMANNAH   as  SRIDEVI  average

PARESH RAWAL as KADER KHAN total crap

MAHESH MANJEREKAR as AMJAD KHAN average

ADHYAMUN SUMAN  as SHAKTI KAPOOR pls look out for some thing other than ACTING

 

Only rejoice to the sinking film is the original soundtrack of BAPPI LAHIRI’s two famous tracks which may vasool your money back.

Emraan-Huma lip-lock in EK THI DAAYAN 


No disappointment for Emraan Hashmi fans who love their serial-kisser icon. The actor, who has already proven his histrionics and star power repeatedly, will be seen gently kissing his co-star Huma Qureshi in the forthcoming “Ek Thi Daayan”. 

 

Says a source, “It’s a passionate moment in a song sequence called Kaali Kaali and has been very aesthetically done. The set was emptied out and only the bare minimum technicians stood back to capture the scene.”

 

 

 

 

However, the kiss will not be seen in the film’s new trailer, which comes out this week, given the CBFC’s instruction to remove it. So the audience will have to get a ‘taste’ of it in the movie, when it releases worldwide on April 19.

 

It has been produced by Vishal Bhardwaj and Ekta Kapoor.

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

director’s note:

dreams. ambition. hope. disappointments. so much possibility. so many options. eager to jump. afraid to crash.

 

travel. first day at your first job. hectic days. sleepless nights. family. no time for them, suddenly. laughter, music, dance… friendship. best friend getting married. trying to understand the concept of marriage.trying to understand the concept of love. falling in love. falling out of love. falling in love again.

 

excitement.confusion. feeling invincible. feeling worthless. the feeling that things couldn’t possibly get worse. only to learn that they do in fact get worse.but only until they get better. making choices, taking chances, accepting change… The madness of youth!

 

The journey from a 21-year old to a 30-year old has had shades of all kinds. As the rest of life will too, undoubtedly. But there is something about one’s first tryst with adulthood which is particularly powerful… a kind of rawness, a lack of lived experience, no way of truly knowing what lies at the end of the road one is walking on, a constant seeking in the dark for the moments where life is full of light.

 

 

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is a cocktail of all these encounters and obsessions… It is a story of the exhilarating and terrifying journey of four characters as they navigate through their youth; from their carefree laughter as they set off on a holiday together in their colleges days, until their bittersweet tears as they watch the first of their bunch get married. It is an effort to somehow capture the spirit of their lives, wrestle with it and give it to our audience in a bottle. So that it might make them feel happy and joyful and sad and nostalgic. And like the characters in the film, it might make them seek for what it is, in all of the above, that truly gives our lives meaning…

 

Character Sketch

 

 

Bunny (Ranbir Kapoor) : Bunny is charming and fun loving, full of spirit and an indomitable spirit of adventure. He rejects mediocrity and longs to leave his life at home behind to travel, see the world and embrace the freedom of being unattached. Passionate and resourceful, we see Bunny grow from a young student full of unconventional ambitions to a hard working videographer on a travel show, chasing and concretizing his dreams. He embraces a modern value system and wants to be answerable to no one but himself.

 

 

 

Naina (Deepika Padukone) : Naina is a simple, good-natured and extremely focused girl. Frustrated by the restrictions she needs to put on herself to achieve her dreams of being a doctor; she impulsively decides to go on a trekking trip to Manali to give herself a break. Through the film, Naina transforms from the restricted claustrophobic person she thought she was to a free spirited woman with a newfound love for herself and comfort within her choices. She is strong and dependable and stands firmly for rooted family values.

 

 

 

Aditi (Kalki Koechlin): Brazen, loud and boisterous, Aditi finds herself constantly pushed into being “one of the boys”. She is deeply protective to the point of being aggressive towards her two best friends, Avi and Bunny. Aditi doesn’t care much for appearances or money, but extends her own brand of warmth to those she respects or likes. She is fiercely loyal and fiery, almost too ready to fight for what she believes in. Aditi rarely reveals her softer side but her freely swearing, belligerent persona mellows out over time.

 

 

 

 

Avi (Aditya Roy Kapur): Avi is a carefree, happy-go-lucky boy and Bunny’s best friend. He loves alcohol, cricket and his student life. He enjoys living in the present moment and doesn’t spend much thought or effort into planning his future. He is very attached, almost dependent on his best friend, Bunny who he loves deeply. His lack of a mature worldview stilts him in some ways and he remains largely stuck in his teenaged universe.

The evening started with the starcast making an entry in a vintage car, Impala. The crowds were humongous near the theatre.

 

Ranveer and Sonakshi made headway to the stage where they performed a brief act which was choreographed from the film. Giving way to the unveiling of the film’s poster by Sonakshi and Ranveer.

 

The audiences were then shown a 10 minute making of the film which underlined the difficulties which the faces even before the shooting started. From creating the look of the 80’s to the harsh  weather conditions to the ill health of Ranveer Singh in the midst of the shoot. The film’s shoot got postponned two times… and the third time they were finally successful in kickstarting the project.

 

The trailer explained the film and yet left the perfect balance of ambiguity among the audiences. It was received with a roar of applause from the audiences.

The Three ‘Nautanki’ Girls Got The Right Moves with Dhak Dhak

 


    It’s no mean feat to match steps to a song that has been immortalised by Madhuri Dixit-Nene. But looks like Rohan Sippy was confident of being able to pull it through. The director has revived Madhuri’s iconic Dhak Dhak song in his upcoming film Nautanki Saala, with the three actresses – Evelyn Sharma, Pooja Salvi and Gaelyn Mendonca. 

 




    Says Pooja, “I’m a big Madhuri fan and her Dhak Dhak is among the best songs ever choreographed. It was a dream to dance to its remixed version.” While Gaelyn accepts that she had to “work very, very hard to get the moves right, Evelyn adds, “I became nervous when I heard that we were going to perform to Dhak Dhak. Who can have the audacity and courage to dance to a number that Madhuri Dixit has immortalised on screen! But Rohan said that since we are all newcomers, there would not be much comparison. And that we treat it like a tribute.” Finally, says the director, “It is such an iconic song and it is a dream to be able to use it in one of our films.” 


    Producer Bhushan Kumar says, “The three pretty girls have soft, romantic roles in the film, along with the two nautankibaaz boys – Ayushmann Khurrana and Kunaal Roy Kapur. Their look in this song, created by Mikey McCleary and sung by Saba Azad, has lots of oomph. Stepping into the shoes of Madhuri is not easy, but the girls have done a wonderful job with Ayushmann and Kunaal giving those funny expressions that will leave you in splits.” 


    Nautanki Saala, produced by T-Series and RSE, releases on April 12.

Punit living his wild dream

 

 

 

 

 

Director Punit Malhotra, who is making his acting debut with director Samar Khan’s Waisi Waali Khushi, insisted on performing all his stunts by himself. He claims it was an opportunity for him to fulfil his dreams.

“It was great fun doing the stunts on my own. I have always wanted to do these things,” says Punit, who played with tigers, fed them and went go-karting among other things. “All of us have a wish-list of things we want to do, which give us great joy. Feeding a tiger wasn’t part of mine originally, but I’m glad I got to realise a few other things I did have on my list, and I’d like to thank Samar for that,” he adds.

The director, who is all set to start shooting his next — Gori Tere Pyar Mein with Kareena Kapoor and Imran Khan — claims there’s an actor within every director. “All directors are actors. They need to be actors to be able to direct, so acting came naturally to me. People only expect me to direct, so when Samar suggested that I act in this film, I was surprised but excited,” says Punit. His role in the film is of a young, successful banker who suddenly decides to cut down on his workload and obession with making money to relax and enjoy doing the things he loves.

Aatma makes a ‘Brave’ move

 

Suparn Varma’s Aatma is the first Indian movie to have used Dolby Atmos surround sound. For those uninitiated, Dolby Atmos, a new technology introduced by Dolby Laboratories in April last year was first used in Pixar’s Brave. The first installation was in the Dolby theatre in California for the premiere of Brave. Among the horror films, recently released Mamaboasted of having used the Dolby Atmos sound. Only about 23 Hollywood films have used the new technology till now. 


The new technology came with a heavy cost, but Suparn says:“We feel honoured to have used this technology in India 
for the first time. Ours is the second horror movie after Mamato have used it. We had to spend extra seven days post the production for Atmos Dolby. But it seemed well worth it, at the end of the day. Sound is the key for any horror film and we didn’t want to compromise on that aspect. We wanted to get the best.” 


Atmos Dolby is said to give a 4-D effect in sound creating a dynamic effect, depending on the theatre capabilities. It supports up to 128 audio tracks and up to 64 speaker feeds. The Atmos Dolby technique, now available only for commercial films, is expected to be available for home videos as well.

We spend most of our lives waiting for a moment… That moment when we’re not responsible for anyone or anything. That moment when the EMIs are paid and the awards are stacked on the wall. That moment when we could go back to the innocent happiness of childhood, lost somewhere. But what happens when a young, successful banker seizes one moment and decides to make it the one that changes his life? That moment is when his real journey begins… The journey towards his Waisi Waali Khushi.

Sona Spa, Being a Drama to a 

 

Thriller!

 

 

When it comes to sleep deprived these days, we always say we will catch up on sleep over the weekend, but it never happens. If Reiki, Puja or a Piligramage done for somebody helps, then why not make someone sleep on your behalf!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sona Spa adapted from a play, Writer & Director, Makrand Deshpande explains that the film is inspired by the commercial world where everything is up for sale. It brings the serious issue of lack of sleep due to various reasons that altogether causes unhealthy and tiring life.  “If somebody is not feeling fresh and is longing for a nap, then one just needs to call Sona Spa and as per their contract, the sleep workers will sleep on their behalf. So you don’t need to take pills or consume alcohol to go to sleep. The catch is that when a sleep worker is sleeping your sleep, then he or she is also dreaming your dreams. This changes the genre from being a drama to a thriller!”

 

The film also shows Naseeruddin Shah in a dramatic character of ‘Baba Dayanand’ and Makrand recalls “Working with Naseer was like a celebration and not work pressure. He has been watching my plays for last 15 years and he watched the rehearsals of this play too, though he was not a part of the play, but when I asked him for the movie, he instantly agreed, since he was convinced with the idea”.

 

Sona Spa, produced by Miraj Entertainment, releases March 22, 2013

Grazia India shoots its first underwater cover

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Media Release: The Olive, Mumbai March 6, 2013

Dive into a new world created by Grazia, photographer Colston Julian and model Angela Jonsson. Grazia’s first underwater cover shoot is a surreal world peopled with an incredible palette of natural pristine blues and pure catwalk whites. The March 2013 issue of Grazia is themed around a new season of spring summer fashion. The cover featuring Angela Jonsson has been shot underwater by Colston Julian, a first for everyone involved. Three days of intensive shooting took place with specifically trained staff. A specialised technical team, that understood not only the process, but also the aesthetics and photographic style of Julian, included a technical team or ‘a pit crew’ who analysed images for colour temperature, image sharpness and quality in detail. “We did a test run and went over images to do a creative and technical debrief with the entire team, showing them what was happening to the garments underwater, and how the make-up and hair were reacting to the water and the light,” says Julian.

The whole process was a physically exhausting one that involved the photographer taking shots in between breaths, to avoid bubbles from disturbing the frame, as well as the model holding her breath and composure underwater for long periods of time. “Physically I had to train to keep fit for the intense hours underwater. We shot in January and the water was colder that what we thought it would be,” adds Julian.

The clothes featured in the shoot are a collection of textured whites, curated by Grazia’s Fashion Director Ekta Rajani. “Textured whites are a key spring-summer 2013 trend, that we thought they would look ethereal underwater, thus amplifying what the water would do to the clothes,” says Rajani. To complement the clear blues of the water, and the fluid whites, Angela’s make-up was kept clean and simple. Make-up and hair artist Bianca Hartkopf drew inspiration from water, light and reflections and combined it with pastels, perfect colours for this season’s trends. “Pastels make you look and feel girlie, vintage, for springtime. I’ve used shades of blue, purple, and green on the eyes and washes of subtle colour and a touch of sparkle while keeping the rest of the look simple and glowing,” says Hartkopf.

 

The end result is an ethereal underwater fantasy, a product of hard work and commitment. The onset of spring and summer takes on a surreal welcome through Grazia’s new foray.

Grazia India shoots its first underwater cover

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Media Release: The Olive, Mumbai March 6, 2013

Dive into a new world created by Grazia, photographer Colston Julian and model Angela Jonsson. Grazia’s first underwater cover shoot is a surreal world peopled with an incredible palette of natural pristine blues and pure catwalk whites. The March 2013 issue of Grazia is themed around a new season of spring summer fashion. The cover featuring Angela Jonsson has been shot underwater by Colston Julian, a first for everyone involved. Three days of intensive shooting took place with specifically trained staff. A specialised technical team, that understood not only the process, but also the aesthetics and photographic style of Julian, included a technical team or ‘a pit crew’ who analysed images for colour temperature, image sharpness and quality in detail. “We did a test run and went over images to do a creative and technical debrief with the entire team, showing them what was happening to the garments underwater, and how the make-up and hair were reacting to the water and the light,” says Julian.

The whole process was a physically exhausting one that involved the photographer taking shots in between breaths, to avoid bubbles from disturbing the frame, as well as the model holding her breath and composure underwater for long periods of time. “Physically I had to train to keep fit for the intense hours underwater. We shot in January and the water was colder that what we thought it would be,” adds Julian.

The clothes featured in the shoot are a collection of textured whites, curated by Grazia’s Fashion Director Ekta Rajani. “Textured whites are a key spring-summer 2013 trend, that we thought they would look ethereal underwater, thus amplifying what the water would do to the clothes,” says Rajani. To complement the clear blues of the water, and the fluid whites, Angela’s make-up was kept clean and simple.
