The second-half of this breakneck-speed, blues-chaser of a movie opens with a long chase sequence through the narrow gallis of a dusty small-town in North India where we last saw Akshay Kumar having a ball in "Rowdy Rathod" and "Khiladi 786".
Somehow in those films, Akshay ended up having more fun that we did. This time, our enjoyment-quotient matches Akshay's step-by-step, scene-by-scene, frame-by-frame chuckle for chuckle.
"Boss" is as much fun to watch as it must have been to shoot. Almost every sequence is an 'item'. And for once the word 'item' is not a gaali.. »

Akshay Kumar was seen portraying the role of Punjabi Munda quite often, from Namastey London to his recent hit Khiladi 786, but the actor never tried his hands on in a full fledged regional venture. Now that he is producing a Punjabi film, Bhaji In Problem, Akshay is all set to do an extended cameo in the movie. As per the buzz, the actor has shot about five to six scenes and since he is well versed with the language, doing the role was a cakewalk for him. Also, Akshay was truly impressed with the character written for him and hence decided to play the role. Apparently, the actor has now completed the shoot and is off for a holiday with his family. The film is set to release this year. »

One of the most dazzling events to kick start the Times of India Film Awards was the opening night’s Musical Extravaganza held Thursday night at the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver. Hosted by the peppy and energetic Neha Dhupia, the concert featured Sunidhi Chauhan, Mohit Chauhan, Hard Kaur, Shalmali Kholgade, Abbas Hassan, and Kavita Seth. It was an evening full of wild flames, wonderful dancing, but felt rather improvisatory and rushed.
The event started a full half an hour late, which you can naturally forgive given the amount of prepwork that goes into pulling off such a huge event. When we hit the show running, choreographer Shiamak Davar decided on the unconventional route and sang his signature tune, ‘Jaane Kisne’. Instead of bringing out his troupe, Davar sang his tune around the stage alongside two dancers conveying that yearning and hope to the seductive beat. Davar can hold a tune »

They say that the three digits '786' are very auspicious. And true to this, seems like Khiladi 786 has been blessed into becoming a blockbuster not just at the B.O., but also on the small screen.
When the Akshay- Asin- Himesh starrer Khiladi 786 was shown on TV, it recorded a Trp of a breath-taking 5.1. This response matters more to Himesh as he is also the co-producer of the film. With Khiladi 786, Himesh has struck gold for the sixth time in a row as a music director, the previous ones being Bodyguard, Bol Bachchan, Omg Oh My God, Son Of Sardaar, and also the recently released Special 26 (where he was the guest composer).

2012 was a reasonably good year for Bollywood overall, with trade pundits stating that in terms of innovation & commerce, the year set a benchmark. With the 2013 movie calendar looking additionally promising, it’s a safe bet that the year will have enough drama, action and (hopefully) moolah to keep everyone thoroughly entertained. But while 2012 was high on taking risks, leaving the old out and embracing the new, it left us desiring for more a little more in terms of alliances, trends and outlooks. Hence, though Christmas is a month past us, we are hoping that in the event Santa is working overtime, we have a small wishlist for the things we desire from Bollywood in 2013.
