Anees Bazmee set to start Aankhen 2 with Big B and two more films after Welcome Backs success

8 September 2015 3:38 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Anees Bazmee could well be heaving a sigh of relief. His Welcome Back has finally released and a gap of four years since Ready (2011), a Rs. 100 crore affair with Salman Khan, has finally been closed. While the Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar and John Abraham starrer is also doing fantastic at the Box Office, the maker of Welcome and Singh Is Kinng has now moved on to his next.

"First to go on floors would be Aankhen 2 with Amitabh Bachchan. Yet again, Amitji would have company of three blind men. However, unlike the first in the franchise, they won't be Akshay Kumar, Arjun Rampal or Paresh Rawal. Instead, new actors would be stepping in," informs our source.

While this would continue the trend of multi-starrers for Anees Bazmee, who has also made No Entry, Thank You and No Problem, the other two films would be a comedy followed by a love story. »

All is Well review: Abhishek Bachchan's rock star road trip causes cliche gridlock

23 August 2015 1:35 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Another week, another family saga played out over the steering wheel. This one features mopey tunes, torturous exposition – and cuckoo sound effects to help underperforming gags on their way

Hindi cinema has become as hung up on families as Hollywood now is on superheroes, which poses a problem: while immensely relatable and profitable when done right, the formula permits only finite variation, and may lead to projects that proceed from the same idea. All is Well is this summer’s second road movie to cram squabbling relatives into the back of a car: that set-up ignited May’s low-key but transporting Amitabh Bachchan vehicle Piku, and now drives Umesh Shukla’s much broader comedy-drama, which follows a similar narrative route with one erratic hand on the wheel and another Bachchan travelling upfront.

Here, it’s junior scion Abhishek playing Inder, a mopey rockstar recalled home from touring to settle his irascible father’s accounts – and, »
