July 27, 2010: Khatta Meetha hasn’t lived up to the expectations from the content perspective. What was being sold entirely as a comedy has turned out to be a semi-humor-semi-drama affair. Even that would have been acceptable had the film being an engrossing watch. However, the fact remains that this is yet another loosely put together film by Priyadarshan, something which was the case with his last release Bumm Bumm Bole as well.
This is the reason why even though the film opened reasonably well (at around 70% occupancy, something which was predicted in this column last week) the word of mouth hasn’t. »
Launched with much fanfare exactly two years back with a budget pegged at 25 crores, Raftaar 24X7 was one of those couple of dozen films which came into existence when the industry was at it's peak. The term recession had not yet made its presence felt and every reputed production house and actor was more than glad to make huge announcements. There was widespread excitement around the film since a 25 crore budget allocated by Percept Picture Company meant that Raftaar 24X7 was all set to be Emraan Hashmi's biggest venture till date. All seemed to be quite well during the earlier schedules of the film as first time filmmaker Shamim Desai joined the principal cast of Raftaar 24X7 in Maldives for a 'test shoot'. This was one of its kinds experiments as the week long trip worth Rs. 1.5 crore was planned to get the cast and the crew familiar with each other. »

May 24, 2010: Priyadarshan now has one of the biggest flops ever of his Bollywood journey in the form of ‘Bumm Bumm Bole’ but surprisingly even the failure of the film hasn’t made any news whatsoever. Now this is even worse because it only goes on to show that no one even cared if this Darsheel Safary film found an audience for itself or not. The film was panned by critics, rejected by audience who bothered to watch it over the weekend and was totally off everyone’s mind as the week progressed.
Though many have questioned if releasing ‘Bumm Bumm Bole’ a week before ‘Kites’. »
New Delhi, May 17 – Child actor Darsheel Safary, who earned kudos for his portrayal of a dyslexic child in Aamir Khan’s ‘Taare Zameen Par’, has failed to attract footfalls with his latest outing ‘Bumm Bumm Bole’. Experts blame it on the lack of star power.
”Bumm Bumm Bole’ is a very emotional movie. Darsheel has done a good role. The content is good. »
Let's not get unnecessarily and unjustly nostalgic about the original Iranian film. This remake, done up in shades of terrorism in the idyllic North-east (region unspecified) is so lyrically lush in its visuals and so gently evocative in treatment that the original material is forgotten ten minutes into the narrative.
A great deal of the credit for the film's immense intense but toned-down impact must go to the children, Darsheel Safary no longer the pouty buck-teethed moppet from Taare Zameen Par, and little Ziyah Vastani who's quite easily the most delightful new discovery of the year. Ziyah in fact steals many scenes from under her brilliant co-star's nose. If he minds it, he doesn't show it.
Darsheel and little Ziyah create an intangible and secret world of hushed wonderment and »
May 17, 2010: The biggest release of the week was ‘Bumm Bumm Bole’ and as predicted last week, this Priyadarshan directed film couldn’t even manage a 20% opening. A total reject from the paying junta, the film was also (rightly) thrashed by the critics because of it’s half backed treatment. It turned out to be a barely average film and that was a pity because a lot more was expected from the combination of Priyadarshan and Darsheel Safary.
There were all the right reason to expect a heart warming film which could have possibly resulted in moist eyes and smile on the lips. However, what. »
Priyadarshan with Bumm Bumm Bole has again shown what a sensitive director he is to be able to contextualize the problems that children in an insurgency infested area have to face. While the shooting for Bumm Bumm Bole has been done for the major part in Ooty, it is after a long time that the problem has been looked from the perspective of children growing up in an insurgency hit environment »

May 13, 2010: Five films release this week – ‘Bumm Bumm Bole’, ‘Admissions Open’, ‘Kushti’, ‘Do Dilon Ke Khel Mein’ and ‘Vroom’ – and frankly, none of the five are expected to make any impact whatsoever at the box office.
Let’s talk about ‘Bumm Bumm Bole’ first. Really, what’s going on in the minds of the makers here? If you want to release a film, then release it properly or do not do so at all. Why such an attempt which doesn’t even come close to being half hearted? When you have Priyadarshan as the director,. »
The coming Friday will see the last moment postponement, the Priyadarshan directed Bumm Bumm Bole along with Anupam Kher's Admissions Open and the Rajpal Yadav, Nargis and the The Great Khali starrer Kushti.

Last Friday's two releases, Yash Raj's Parmeet Sethi directed »
