Student of the Year: The Biggest Launch For Any Newcomer EVER!

I am VERY excited to see Student of the Year or SOTY.  Watching the trailers I experience three things:

1. REMINISCENCE – Not of my high school days ha ha! My high school was so drab that even Karan Johar could not make it look glamourous!  No the feeling of reminiscence is directed towards one of my favorite films Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.  Obviously this film’s plot is not even remotely similar to KKHH but it too appears to be a grand, larger than life story.  I love such films and that is why I so eagerly await every Karan Johar film!

2.  CRUSH AT FIRST SIGHT – I think both the boys are very handsome but I just couldn’t keep my eyes off Varun! When I heard Varun Dhawan was acting in Karan Johar’s next film this is not what I imagined him to be like.  Now, I am eagerly awaiting his debut.  That is not to say that Siddharth is not devilishly handsome as well.  This October girls will have no shortage of eye candy thanks to Mr. Johar!

3. AWE – The opening shots of the school leave you in awe.  Then, the three youngsters leave you in awe.  They are all model-like and have impeccable fashion sense.  Then you see the multiple shots of people walking, exercising and dancing in complete sync.  Moreover, the prom song “Disco Deewane” leaves you wishing that your prom/school dance was even 1/1000th as cool as this fictional prom!

I know I am counting down the days to October 19th, the day Student of the Year releases.  What about you?  Watch the trailers below.

Barfi – Something out of the ordinary but in a good way!

I always argue with people who say bollywood movies are all the same because that statement does not only apply to bollywood but also applies to every film industry out there.  Ask yourself how many superhero movies has hollywood churned out this year or how many rom-coms, animated movies about being courageous?

Still I too yearn for those bollywood films that are not the norm and now more than ever I am getting what I want.  Recently films like 3 Idiots, Ferrari Ki Saawari, Chillar Party, Ishqiya, Saat Khoon Maaf, Kaminey, Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster, Paan Singh Tomar, My Name Is Khan, Kahaani, Rockstar, Gangs of Wasseypur, ZNMD, etc. have been made and they are out of the ordinary but in a good way!  Looks like another name will be added to the list come September 14th, 2012, BARFI!

The trailer was released today and I am already impressed.  The visuals are stunning! Anurag Basu is a talented director and the trailer is just a reminder of this.  Moreover, watching Ranbir one cannot help but reminisce and think back to Raj Kapoor Saab and Charlie Chaplin.  This young man is shaping up to be the biggest star in bollywood.  I suggest the Khans stop fighting amongst themselves and watch out for him instead!

I don’t know about you but I’m eagerly awaiting Barfi!

Farhan Akhtar as Milkha Singh

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is one film I am eagerly awaiting.  Milkha Singh Ji’s story is so inspiring and he has such an amazing personality!  Plus with ace-director Rakesh Om Prakash Mehra at the helm the film is most certainly going to be brilliant.  Moreover, Farhan Akhtar is essaying the role of Milkha Singh and he has proven to be a fantastic actor.  A photo was released of Farhan dressed as Milkha Singh and the resemblance is uncanny.  My excitement just increased ten fold!

I know it’s hard to tell so I’ll add that the one on the right is Farhan and the one on the left is the real Milkha Singh!

Teri Meri Kahaani: First Trailer!

WOW!!!! This is what I call an outstanding trailer! It tells you what the movie is about, the music excites you and the dialogues leave you wanting more!  Priyanka looks stunning and Shahid looks dashing.  Plus their chemistry is electrifying! The tag line of the film is thrice upon a love story.  I like it, it is creative.

 

Great trailer right?

The film releases June 22, 2012!

Cannot wait!!!!!!

Emraan Hashmi in a Dharma Film, Housefull 2 Trailer and More

Here is a news update from Bollywood Hungama I found VERY interesting.

I am so glad to see Emraan getting the big banner films he deserves.  I don’t always like the kind of films he does (Murder 1 and 2 particularly) but he is a good actor.

I cannot wait to see the madhouse trailer of Housefull 2.  The star cast is AMAZING! John and Akshay make a great combo and cannot wait to see Rishi Kapoor, Boman Irani, Randhir Kapoor and Mithun Da together on screen!

As for the 2nd trailer of Agent Vinod, I did not like the first one so I hope the second one is better.

Talaash Trailer!!!!!!!

Finally the wait is over!  Here is the official trailer of Aamir Khan’s next film Talaash!

Now this is what I call a trailer!  It is crisp, suspenseful and has great dialogues in it.  I expected no less from Excel Entertainment.  There are only three film banners that I will blindly trust to make good films and those are (1) Dharma Productions, (2) Yashraj, (3) Excel Entertainment.  These three can make a film and I’ll go watch it without even seeing a trailer, that is how highly I think of the quality of their work.  So, I knew that this trailer would not disappoint.

Kareena looks to be playing something around the lines of a prostitute/bar dancer.  It is nice to see her in a different avatar than her recent onslaught of glamorous looks.  Rani’s looks reminds me of her character in Yuva.  She always looks stunning in sarees.  Lastly, Aamir’s character’s dialogues succeed in fascinating us.  That is no surprise, all of Excel’s films have had wonderful dialogues, be it Don, Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd, Rock On, ZNMD or Don 2.  The moustache also suits Mr. Khan surprisingly well.

Cannot wait for it to release on June 1st, 2012.

PS Yup I just checked and the man himself, Mr. Farhan Akhtar has penned the dialogues for the film.  If that isn’t good enough the very talented Anurag Kashyap has given additional dialogues!  HUGE EXPECTATIONS from this film!
