Rangrezz Movie Review

As the director of the 2008 National Award winning Tamil film, Kanchivaram and many other classics, Priyadarshan needs no introduction nor to be questioned if he can sparkle up the screen. But not everyone remembers this and time is what it is. Although not nearly as breathtaking, Rangrezz would probably fall into the same category of films he directed as Aakrosh and Tezz, showing the serious/realistic cinema side of him. A remake from Tamil, it stars Jackky Bhagnani, Priya Anand, Vijay Verma and Amitosh Nagpal in lead roles. The original film, Naadodigal, has been remade into 4 other languages since its release in 2009. But the key here is whether Rangrezz will see the same success.

Now, we have seen our fair share of movies in Hindi cinema that depict love birds and the selfless friends that help them succeed in their love story. Yet, have we ever seen what happens to

Khan Must Pay Deposit To Secure Ra.One Release
Bollywood's biggest star Shah Rukh Khan has been told he must pay a $200,000 (£125,686) court deposit to secure the release of his new superhero movie Ra.One.

The Indian actor is currently embroiled in a copyright battle over the action movie after scriptwriter Yash Patnaik accused Khan and his production firm of stealing a concept he created.

Khan is expected to hand over the deposit to ensure the film's release goes ahead next week (begs24Oct11), to coincide with the Diwali festival.

A court will then hear both sides of the argument at a future date.

Patnaik is demanding 10 per cent of the film's profits, alleging he developed the idea for an Indian superhero in 2006 and shared his plan with Ra.One scriptwriter Mushtaq Sheikh.

Ra.One has already made history as the most expensive Bollywood production to date.
