My Name is Khan is out this week!

My Name is Khan is out this week, starring SRK and Kajol and directed by Karan Johar. I believe Karthik Calling Karthik will be out in mid to late February. That is starring Deepika Padukone and Farhan Akhtar. Make sure to see them! Reviews of the films will be up soon, after I have seen both of them, and hopefully I can get up some other delayed reviews!

My Name is Khan Promo

Finally we have a date for MKK, February. The first Karan Johar film in a while, that he actually directed, and honestly its style looks very similar to Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, but obviously not quite similar in the story. I am quite surprised that Karan Johar did a 9/11 film because it has really become the trend in Bollywood this past year, and I didn't think of him being into that. I think it will be amazing because of our favorite pairing, SRK and Kajol! What more could one ask for!

Kambakkht Ishq

Kareena Kapoor-Simrita Rai
Akshay Kumar- Viraj Shergill

Simrita is a "man hating" doctor and part time supermodel, while Viraj is a famous stuntman in Hollywood. Both of their best friends fall in love and get married, leaving their friends behind to grumble about how completely ridiculous love is. When Simrita and Viraj meet, it becomes an immediate battle of the sexes and they vow to mess up each other's love lives. Simrita schemes to woo Viraj, and then drop him flat to make him see how men are horrible and so is love, while Viraj is simultaneously planning the same demise for Simrita. So they each go about their wooing and eventually fall in love with each other, of course, after a serious of mishaps and typical bollywood "comedy".

Basically I found this film rather offensive and completely unoriginal. The plot was bland and random, and I felt slightly embarrassed for the actors because they were apart of this film. I think the reason I disliked this film so much was because I came into with high hopes of a good Kareena-Akshay romantic, yet silly film, but those hopes were squashed when I saw the first scene. Basically it stereotyped every single kind of person and did it very untactful manner at that. I hated the horrible Hollywood guest appearances like Denise Richards and Sylvester Stallone whose acting skills had been reduced to those of a five year olds. The one thing I liked about this movie was the style of it. The clothes were great, both Kareena and Akshay were dressed impeccably, and all of the sets were very nice and very Los Angeles. I would not recommend this film, because at the end of it, you will deeply regret the loss those 3 hours, and be disgusted to a point that you will be sorely sickened with your choice of film, just as I had been.

What gave this film it's much needed hype was the soundtrack, its amazing! This is the only redeeming quality of this film. I absolutely love most of the music and would definitely recommend getting the soundtrack, even if you don't watch the film. My favorite song from the film was by far Bebo! It has such a good beat and its just a really fun song. Here is the music video from Kambakkht Ishq.

Rajneeti Promo

Wow, here I am. Back from the mayhem of school and onto more BOLLYWOOD! Happy 2010 to all of my beloved readers, and I hope this year holds many bollywood surprises. Here is a promo for Rajneeti, a film with many stars starring in it, but I think Katrina Kaif will have the biggest role in the film considering all we have heard about it is her playing Soniya Gandhi. But anyways, Ajay Devgan, Arjun Rampal, Ranbir Kapoor and Vivek Oberoi. It looks a lot like the Sarkar Raj films, but obviously not about a corrupt family.

I am going to start posting reviews from the summer that I have missed, and catch up to films out right now!
