No leading lady for John in Rocky Handsome

22 January 2014 2:28 AM, PST | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

John has no leading lady in his next project Rocky Handsome. But it's not because his characters loves only himself. Informs Nishikant, "Apart from John there is one other pivotal character, a male associate to John's character. And they share very close bonding. But no leading lady, not even for the songs. I will have three songs in the film. But they'd all be in background." Not that Nishikant is uncomfortable with songs. "I didn't have lip-sync songs in any of my earlier films until recently in my Marathi film Lai Bhaari which Riteish Deshmukh has produced. He also plays the lead. Though it's not a comedy it's a much lighter film than my earlier films Mumbai Meri Jaan, Force or my first film Dombivali Fast which was in Marathi." Kamat feels the glamour, songs and cast including the female lead must not be dictated by the box office. "I do understand numbers. »

‘Sholay 3D’ Disappoints at the Box Office

7 January 2014 5:08 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Turns out Indians were not all that interested in “Sholay 3D” as the box office after four days in Indian theaters reached 63 million rupees ($1.01 million) from 1,000 screens.

Theaters were at 60%-70% capacity, according to exhibitors. Although the Amitabh Bachchan-Dharmendra starrer beat the other new release “Mr. Joe B. Carvalho” at the box office, the 3D conversion cost the producers $3.5 million.

“Dhoom 3,” with Aamir Khan, is still going gangbusters in theaters at 90% capacity, according to exhibs, and may be drawing all the oxygen.

The re-release of the 1975 blockbuster “Sholay” had the support of its stars, who include Bachchan and Dharmendra’s respective wives, Jaya Bhaduri and Hema Malini. Sanjeev Kumar, the other lead in the all-star cast, died in 1985. But the film’s director Ramesh Sippy went to court to regain copyright to the film, which is now with his nephew, however the Mumbai High Court rejected his plea »

'Sholay' an all-time greatest movie, says Salman

5 January 2014 3:10 AM, PST | | See recent RealBollywood news »

Produced by G.P. Sippy, it became the biggest hit of 1975.

'Sholay 3D' - Classics never pale (Ians Movie Review, Rating: *****)

3 January 2014 11:04 PM, PST | | See recent RealBollywood news »

Film: "Sholay 3D"; Cast: Sanjeev Kumar, Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Amitabh Bachchan and Amjad Khan; Writers: Salim Khan and Javed Akhtar; Director: Ramesh Sippy; Rating: *****

If as William Shakespeare told us, a rose by any other name smells just as sweet, then "Sholay" in any format -3D, 4D or whatever, would remain just the same.

An inviolable classic, timeless, as it is timely. The new version, spruced up with flying bullets and thundering hoofs, comes to us at a time when "Dhoom" is trending. So it's "Sholay 3D" weighed against "Dhoom: 3".

Undoubtedly, the current films that seem to make so much money seem to pale into flamboyant insignificance when weighed against the hefty impact of "Sholay".

As many. »
