Machine Is Baazigar Rebooted – A Subhash K Jha review

Starring Mustafa, Kiara Advani, Ehsan Shanker, Ronit Roy, Dalip Tahil

Directed by Abbas-Mustan

Exactly at the stroke of mid-point the film’s debut making hero does what Shah Rukh Khan did in Baazigar 24 years ago.

Mustafa who is co-director Abbas Burmanwala’s son, pushes a lady to a steep fall. It is interesting to see the producer’s son picking to debut so darkly. Machine is a film about a nasty murky non-brainer of a hero (hence, Machine) who doesn’t think twice before snuffing out lives on his mentor’s order.

Not much thought has gone into the protagonist’s behaviour. Ditto the action. It’s a role that Shah Rukh Khan mythologized in Baazigar except for the fact that his cruel murders were perpetrated to avenge his father’s murder and mother’s humiliation.

Our cinema is all about loving one’s parents, remember? Ransh, the hero as

21 Years after Akshay Kumar it is John Abrahams turn to face a blind Naseeruddin Shah

21 Years after Akshay Kumar it is John Abrahams turn to face a blind Naseeruddin Shah
It was way back in 1994 when Naseeruddin Shah had taken Akshay Kumar as well as Suniel Shetty for a ride with his blind man act in Mohra. It had turned out to be a huge twist in the tale when as a businessman Jindal, Naseeruddin Shah had turned out to be a villain of the piece, instead of being a savor that he projected himself to be. Now 21 years later, it is John Abraham's turn to face the music, as he comes face to face with Naseeruddin Shah in a blind avtar again. The film is Welcome Back and this time around there is no pretense being put as the veteran actor is playing a comical don named Wanted Bhai in the Anees Bazmee directed action comedy. In the first of the series, it was Firoz Khan who came in the lives of Akshay Kumar, Anil Kapoor and Nana Patekar

Villain gets its title from Rajiv Rai

Not many know but the title ‘Villain’ did not originally belong to Balaji. While the film was under production, the title was being used provisionally.

However director Mohit Suri, the writers and producers (Balaji) were extremely keen to have that title for their Sidharth Malhotra-Riteish Deshmukh-Shraddha Kapoor starrer as they felt that it was extremely powerful and relevant to the subject.

The title was the ownership of yesteryear’s film maker Rajiv Rai, known for blockbusters like ‘Tridev’, ‘Mohra’ and ‘Gupt’. When Balaji requested him recently, he obliged.

Confirms Tanuj Garg, CEO – Balaji Motion Pictures, “Rajiv (Rai) is a dear friend. When I requested him for the title, he consented immediately. He wasn’t planning to produce or direct any film with the title and gave it to us.”

‘Ek Villain’ releases in cinemas worldwide on June 27.

In case you missed it, check out the first look of the film!

Whenever one hears the name Raveena Tandon, the only song that precedes the name is Mohra's 'Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast', one of the 'premier' item songs of the 90s that made her an overnight sensation. Though Raveena hasn't done too many item numbers in her career, she has agreed to do one item song in Sudipto Chattopadhyay's Shobhna Seven Nights. Buzz is that she said yes to the song on the condition that it would be done aesthetically and with no suggestion of eroticism.
