Pic : Neil Mukesh In Madhur Bhandarkar’s Jail

Filed under: Bollywood Latest Releases - 05 Aug 2008

Last year’s most talented newcomer, Neil Nitin Mukesh who made a smashing debut in a rather complex role in Johnny Gaddar, will be seen in Madhur Bhandarkar’s next film Jail.

FASHION may well be Madhur’s last women-centric movie for a while. As per the director, his next project will be about three male prisoners, aptly titled JAIL. Madhur promises that it will be another hard-hitting subject. So will it be similar to Nagesh Kukunoor’s Teen Deewarein? Guess we will have to just wait and watch.

Here’s a first look poster of Neil Nitin Mukesh in JAIL.

Review : Mithya (Movie Review)

After delivering a commercial success in the form of Bheja Fry last year, director Rajat Kapoor comes up with another witty film, Mithya. Starring Ranvir Shorey, Brijendra Kala, Neha Dhupia, Naseeruddin Shah in the lead, Mithya hits the screens this week.

Here is a review of the film, by Bollywood’s top critic Rajeev Masand ….

 

Sometimes just talking about a film spoils the fun of watching it. It’s true what they say about some films — the less you know about it before you go watch it, the better. Rajat Kapoor’s Mithya is exactly that kind of film, so you can understand my dilemma even as I attempt to review the film here.

Much like Superstar, the other film at the cinemas this week, Mithya too revolves around the life of a struggling Bollywood actor.

Ranvir Shorey plays VK, the struggler in question, whose life turns upside down when he gets inadvertently involved with the underworld owing to the striking resemblance he bears to a person they have not-so-noble interests in.

Alas, that’s as little as one can reveal about the film’s plot without giving out spoilers galore. Mithya is one of those rare films that constantly surprises you, it’s one of those films that never stops unravelling, a film that never reveals all its cards at once.

If that’s what you’re looking for on an evening out at the movies — unpredictability, surprise, the unfamiliar — then Mithya is your best bet. In fact, it’s got more surprises than both Johnny Gaddar and Manorama Six Feet Under.

Starting off as a comedy, Mithya straddles several genres as it makes it way from start to finish — thriller, romance, suspense — but eventually it settles comfortably into its identity as a black comedy.

Shankar Ehsaan Loy To Give Music For Disney’s High School Musical 2

 The tri of Shankar Ehsaan Loy, who made it big in the music industry with Farhan Akthar’s Dil Chahta Hai are-now one of Bollywood’s biggest composers. Their tworecent sound tracks, Taare Zameen Par and Johnny Gaddar have got wide appreciation. And nowaccording to a report on IBNLIVE,  the three some are all set to enthrall the Hollywood audience with their splendid music.

Musicians Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy have a new ace up their sleeves. They’re going back to school, High School actually, as they compose music for a Disney film.

When Disney meets bhangra, what you get is truly fun. Disney television film High School Musical 2 is ready to woo its Indian audience with some very desi beats, courtesy music composers Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy. They have composed three additional songs to add to the musical — a first of its kind.

The film took them back to their high school days. Shankar Mahadevan reminisced, “I was a very good student and I used to always come first. I used to study seven hours a day. I used to attend every single lecture. I used to be the favourite of all the teachers… and whatever I am saying right now is a complete lie.”

His partner Ehsaan told us, “My high school memories consist of getting into trouble every week, detention twice or thrice a week at least, my mother getting letters from school saying I have flunked in this subject, I have flunked in that subject…”

Shankar quipped, “He didn’t even know that he flunked because he was not in school.”

First Look : Johnny Gaddaar Video Trailer

After the super success of Apne, Dharmendra will be seen working in director’s Sriram Raghvan’s next film, Johnny Gaddar. If you have forgotten, then Sriram Raghvan is the talented director who gave us the Saif – Urmila thriller Ek Hasina Thi.

So after Ek Hasina Thi, Sriram is going to keep within the thriller genre. The promos of Johnny Gaddar look promising and we can expect a well made thriller.

Apart from Dharmendra, Johnny Gaddar introduces star cast of Neil Nitin Mukesh, who previously worked as an assistant director with Yash Raj for four years and has an impeccable film lineage as the son of Nitin Mukesh and grandson of singer Mukesh. Definitely Neil Mukesh has a charm in him and atleast by the look of the prmos he looks to be a great find.

Johnny Gaddaar also stars Rimi Sen, Zakir Hussain, Vinay Pathak, Daya Shetty and Ashwini Kalsekar. Music of the film is given by Vishal-Shekhar.

Johnny Gaddaar revolves around a gang of five men, the eldest [Dharmendra] over 60, the youngest [ Neil] in his 20s, who face the bright prospect of making a fortune through what seems to be a simple exchange of contraband for money on a train. However, one of the gang members gets killed before he can make the exchange and the money he was holding, disappears. Then follows a search for the killer, a game of deceit and betrayal.

The promo of Johnny Gaddaar clearly suggests that the film is about conspiracy, betrayal, suspense and action. A very catchy promo that surely has generated a lot of curiosity for the film.

Check out the thrilling promo of Sriram Raghvan’s Johnny Gaddaar .
