Last month in bollywood - Date 01/23/2007
It has been a long time since I have written something under this section - frankly have been a little busy lately - and that drove me to a stage where I didn't feel like doing anythig, any ways I am charged and am back. Had a few thoughts in past days what to write about and as I did not write on those subjects seperately, I am putting them all together in one writeup.... It seems like bollywood is passing through the best phase ever....not a single actor is rulling over it delivering power pack performances...but every Friday you are in for a great treat for a new power pack performace... Beginging of 2006 it was Aamir Khan & Gang in RDB and begining of 2007 it is Bachchan Family in Guru, not to forget that 2006 had a grand end too with Hrithik stealing the show in Dhoom2....I wanted to write about Abhi-Ash engagement, though lately every single new page/website I have been reading people are talking about the engagement and what next - I feel it is a little too Abhi-Ash for now so we will revisit this may be around their wedding.... just as a side note, I thought the Hrithik-Ash kissing seen was an amazing capture of the most emotional moment in Dhoom2, a perfect end of the perfect sequence - and didn't like the news of it being chopped off from the movie... not quite sure how Hrithik and Ash feels about it but I don't feel okay with it... well I know no one cares... but it is just a POV, and if the Bachchan family is behind this I have lost a little respect for them. Anyways, when the superstars in making were busy delivering the best performances, the current superstar was busy trying to fit in the shoes of the Super Star of all time - yeah I am talking about SRK trying to carry on KBC - I happened to check out the first episode of KBC with SRK and what a fantastic job by SRK. He was able to carry forward some of the styles big B had in the show at the same time introducing a few of his own... this way he would be able to ease in the transition on audiance.... looked like he had done a lot of homework and it for sure paid off... Critics loved him and for audiance, I am pretty sure every one in India now got a reason to tune in to KBC - believe me it is great fun having this casual meeting with him- though sometimes you feel he is trying too hard but those moments are scattered and not always noticable., I am just afraid if ability to watch him on the TV 4 nights in a week is going to degrade his box office value?!....He is his charming self trying to carry on all the pluses the show had before....the best scene for me from the first episode, when SRK blushes, on asked, what is the secret of his SEX APEAL :) -well ofcourse homework didn't prepare him for every question, but he recovered and answered well!!! It was a kodak moment, and you for sure gotta watch it !!
See SRK blushing
