MY TAKE ON THE TRAILERS:

The film looks AMAZING! Critics will argue that it’s not a new storyline and just the same old love triangle story but I don’t think that is a bad thing! If the movie is execute well (which is looks to be) then it’s a good film.  Imtiaz Ali is in my top three favourite filmakers and knowing he has written the film makes me even more excited to see this film!

The Saif Ali Khan Saga Continues

Well known blogger Miss Malini revealed some interesting theories about the whole incident on her website.  She suggests that Saif was not the one who physically assaulted Iqbal Sharma (the accuser) and rather it was Amrita Arora’s husband Shakeel something or the other (do we really care what his last name is?) who is to blame.  Amrita apparently begged Saif to take the blame and address the media.  Miss Malini believes that Bebo/Kareena and her best friend Amrita have fallen out because of this whole thing.

I think this theory makes sense because I just find it hard ti believe that an intelligent, well spoken man like Saif would even give someone the satisfaction of engaging in a physical fight.  However, one has to wonder why on earth he would take the blame for Amrita Arora’s husband?

Read the whole story here:  http://www.missmalini.com/2012/02/26/kareena-kapoor-and-amrita-arora-troube-in-bff-land/

I really hope Saif is not guilty, I really enjoy his work and have always thought well of him.

Saif Ali Khan Arrested: The Whole Story

It seems as though 2012 is the year that bollywood has started a fight club.  Earlier, SRK and Shirish Kunder had a fist fight and now it’s Saif Ali Khan’s turn.  Here is the NDTV coverage of the whole incident:

Here is the video link of the man who accused Saif:

Here is the video link of Saif’s statement:

http://www.ndtv.com/video/player/news/i-was-hit-i-acted-in-self-defence-saif-ali-khan/224537

I don’t think any of us has any right to judge either side because we don’t know the facts.  To be honest, I don’t care whose fault it was because fighting is never the solution to any problem.  So, both sides are at fault.  If the man did make rude remarks in front of the ladies, that does not justify violence.  Besides its not like ladies cannot hear things that men can.  As for Saif being hit first, it would have been more appropriate for him to walk out and file a police report himself.  The whole incident is unfortunate and should not have happened.

Let’s see what the court rules in this matter.

UPDATE:

This what Saif had to say at a recent press conference for a brand he endorses:

http://www.ndtv.com/video/player/news/saif-apologises-for-the-recent-brawl/224634?pfrom=home-lateststories

I salute him for his admittance that as a star he is a role model and so what happened was wrong because it sets a poor example.  That is exactly what I felt when I read about the whole incident.

I now believe Saif is handling the controversy very well.  Which I expect from him since he comes across as a well-spoken and thoughtful individual.

The Last Day of Genelia-Ritesh Wedding: Church Wedding and Reception Pics!

The wedding is not over guys! Bollywood couple Ritesh-Genelia had another marriage ceremony, this time a Christian one, this morning.

I tried to find a good picture of Genelia’s wedding gown but I could not find one.  I think it is sweet that they had a traditional Maharashtrian wedding and a Christian wedding. In the pictures South actor Siddharth can be spotted and of course the one and only KJo!

Then later in the day was the reception where loads of stars showed up.  This includes Aishwarya, Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan, Jacqueline  Fernandez with boyfriend Sajid Khan, Kareena Kapoor with soon-to-be husband Saif Ali Khan, Randhir Kapoor, Imran with wife Avantika, Aamir Khan with wife Kiran Rao, Nita and Mukesh Ambani, Madhuri Dixit, Juhi Chawla, Rekha and Sushmita Sen.

I am disappointed by most of the women. The color of the sair suits Kareena but the embroidery is nothing special (on the brink of tacky almost).  I think Sush’s sari is just too over the top and the full sleeve blouse makes it worse.  That being said, she looks super elegant and only she can make it work! Jacky’s suit is pretty but her makeup, jewellery and hair ruin the look.   Juhi’s suit has potential but the way she draped the dupatta and her shoes ruin the outfit.  Avantika’s sari is alright but the blouse is dreadful.   Nita Ambani’s sari makes you question if she really is one of the richest women in the world.  Rekha Ji’s traditional sari does not disappoint and she looks like the diva she is. The other look that is beautiful is Kiran Rao’s suit.  It suits her well and is appropriate for the occassion.  Also looking stunning is Mrs. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan! We missed you! It is Ash’s first full fledged appearance after delivering Baby B (whose name we still do not know, do they really expect us to believe they have not named her yet?).  Her anarkali is beautiful!  Madhuri looks okay, the color is great on her but the sari is neither stunning nor ugly.

The bride Genelia looked stunning at her sangeet but this look is just overwhelming.  It is too much embroidery, velvet and stones.  Her jewellery is too heavy.  I know a bride’s is suppose do be but this looks like the petit Genelia is trapped! I am disappointed 😦 !

As for the men, they fared much better and all look good except Mukesh Ambani whose ties is a fashion disaster! Hire a stylist, we know you can afford one!

Ritesh looks okay but I wish he had worn some other color than black.

Special mention to Saifu! He is so dapper!

Well with that ends the wedding of Ritesh and Genelia.

Congratulations to the couple, the two look adorable together!

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.

Agent Vinod 1st Trailer!

I am a little disappointed with the trailer.  I don’t like the background score and it does not flow well.  Saif looks super dapper and Kareena looks stylish but I feel like something is missing.  It is just a series of action sequences and lacks any kick ass dialogues.  Don 2 is of the same genre of film but its trailer was far more appealing.  Hopefully the trailers to come will be better because this one failed to excite me.
