Director – Priyadarshan
Producer – Ratan Jain
Music Director – Sajid – Wajid
Cinematography– Tiru
Genre – Action / Thriller
Tezz release on 26th January 2012
For a change Priyadarshan is directing an action thriller. This Ajay Devgan and Anil Kapoor starrer is revolves around the bullet train hijacking in which southern superstar Mohanlal Plays a dutiful cop of the Scotland Yard Police with Ajay Devgan and Anil Kapoor in the pivotal roles. Kangana Ranaut plays Ajay Dengan’s wife in the movie. Boman Irani and Zayed Khan play important roles too.
But the one to be talked about here is Sameera Reddy. She plays the role of bar dancer in the movie and so she has been credited with an item number in this movie. Sameera believes and hopes to break new grounds with this movie. She believes that the audiences will appreciate her acting in the character of a bar dancer. She claims that she has done anything like this for the first time in her career and that she had a lot of fun doing it.
Tezz was earlier titled as ‘Bullet Train’, as the whole story revolves around a bullet train. Most parts of the movie have been shot in London, Birmingham and Glasgow. This film has vivid action sequences and uses a lot of technologies, the parkour technology being one of them; to make it appealing and thrilling. The action sequences of this movie have been choreographed by Gareth Milne and Peter Pedrero, stunt co-coordinators of the movies ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’ and ‘The Bourne Supremacy’ respectively. So this film can be expected to be an action packed one with really good action sequences. Well we can atleast hope so the truth will only be revealed once the movie is released.
Though the movie has already been completed, Priyadarshan has delayed the release of the film as he did not want it to clash with Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar. It will now release on 26th January 2012 alongside Hrithik Roshan’s Agneepath. Well Agneepath surely is one of the most awaited films releasing next year, so will Priyadarshan’s Tezz stand a chance against it? That is yet to be seen. For now everything seems to be good, the movie Tezz has well know actors and a decent topic, let’s see what happen once released.

Genre – Comedy / Romance
Housefull 2 release on 15th June 2012
Housefull 2 is a sequel to the 2010 movie Housefull. This one too is being directed by Sajid Khan. It will be a romantic comedy; well don’t have high expectation as we already know what sort of movies does Sajid Khan make and his level of comedy.
Housefull 2 brings back the some of the previous cast like Akshay kumar, Ritiesh Deshmukh and Boman Irani but has many new additions aswell. Well frankly the list of new additions is never ending so let us not talk about it. However, Housefull 2 has been in news for all the wrong reasons of late. The sequel was announced by the Sajid Nadiadwala way back in September 2010, but the shoot started in June 2011. Meanwhile there were a lot changes being made in the cast crew. Firstly Asin Thottumkal replaced Deepika Padukone for the title role. Then the trio of music directors Shankar – Ehsaan – Loy replaced the duo Sajid – Wajid, who composed the music for the prequel. Now recently, industry insiders have confirmed that Akshay Kumar’s character in the film, Aarush is comicly inspired by the character of James Bond and so the producers of the film have booked an action set in Hollywood for a sequence to be shot there. The movie is mainly being shot in London, Peterborough and other foreign locations.
There are many other controversies surrounding this movie; one of them being the link-up between Sajid Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez. It was reported that have been hanging around together a lot and it seems that they have developed a certain fondness for each other. Just to mention that Jacqueline even did and item number in the prequel to this movie. Talking about items numbers, Malaika Arora Khan is all set to do an item number in this upcoming film.
Housefull 2 is yet to release and it’s a long time from now, but all we can hope for is that it doesn’t torture us the way the previous one did.

Player (2012) Movie review

Movie Title – Players
Star Cast – Abhishek Bachchan, Bobby Deol, Sonam Kapoor, Bipasha Basu, Neil Nitin Mukhesh, Omi Vaidya, Sikander Kher
Director – Abbas – Mustan
Procuder – Abbas – Mustan (Burmawalla Bros)
Music Director – Pritam
Lyrics – Ashish Pandit
Genre – Action/ Thriller
Release Date - 6th January 2012
Besides being a happy and super exited father to a newborn baby, Abhishek Bachchan is busy doings films too. Yes his upcoming film Players is all set to release pretty soon. Based on the Hollywood flick ‘The Italian Job’ the Director duo Abbas – Mastan’s next film is named ‘Players’. It’s a multi star cast film and a lot of anticipations rest on the same. The film will be an action thriller which is the director duo’s forte. The story is based entirely on the 2003 American film ‘The Italian Job’ and the director duo tries to use the same kind of techniques and styles as the Hollywoodflick has in it. But the desi touch is what makes the film worth watching for once if not more. Shot in the beautiful backgrounds of New Zealand, Russia and of course India the movie had a pretty long schedule since November 2010. The film was supposed to be released on the 9th of December 2011 with Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl but now it has been pushed to January 6th 2012, making it the very first release of the year 2012. The music in Players has been composed by Pritam, and it just had its official music release a couple of days back. There are a total of 10 tracks including the remixed versions. Though the title track seems to a bit catchy the other tracks seem to have left almost no mark on the market. The film was initially supposed to feature Kangna Ranaut and Priyanka Chopra as the female lead but they were subsequently replaced by Sonam Kapoor and Bipasha Basu. There were rumors about Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor and Deepika Padukone was also being considered for the female lead roles. With release dates closing in time will tell how the audience reacts to this film. Hoping that Abhishek will be able to deliver a hit this time, may his baby lady luck help him.

Rahman gets lifetime achievement award at DIFF

A R Rahman has been honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 8th Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) in Dubai. The Oscar-winner is the youngest and the first musician to get the honour, which was presented to him last night by his highness Sheikh Majid Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the chairman of Dubai Culture and Arts Authority. Previous recipients of the honour are Morgan Freeman, Sean Penn, Oliver Stone, Danny Glover, Terry Gilliam, Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Yash Chopra and Subhash Ghai. Rahman's soulful compositions blend the intricacies of Western and Indian classical with folk sounds, Qawwali and symphonic orchestral themes.
The 45-year-old composer, who has made a distinct print in Indian and world cinema music, said he is a sort of multicultural person, having been exposed to both the Indian and Western culture through his music. "A R Rahman is an inspiration for countless musicians and composers, and has brought a fresh infusion of talent to the Indian film industry. Through his international foray, working with some of the world's most accomplished musicians, he demonstrated the power of music to cross all barriers and connect with a global audience," said festival chairman Abdulhamid Juma. "We are honoured to present Rahman with the DIFF Lifetime Achievement Award."

Dev Anand passes away at 88

Bollywood's evergreen star Dev Anand, whose flamboyant image and innate romantic spirit swayed millions of fans, died in London last night following cardiac arrest. 88-year-old Dev Anand, who had come London for medical check up, was not keeping well for the last few days, family sources said. The legendary actor's son Sunil was with him when he breathed his last. Known for his trademark puff of hair, his sloping walk and smile, Dev Anand starred in countless hits like "Guide", "Paying Guest", "Baazi", "Jewel Thief ", "CID", "Johny Mera Naam", "Amir Garib", "Warrant", "Hare Rama Hare Krishna" and "Des Pardes". When his contemporaries like Raj Kapoor and Dilip Kumar stopped playing the leading men in movies, the versatile actor did not lose his innate romantic spirit and continued to woo his young heroines in movies like "Johnny Mera Naam", "Des Pardes", "Hare Rama Hare Krishna" among others.
Dev Anand made his debut as an actor in 1946 in "Hum Ek Hain". By the time his "Ziddi" was released in 1947 he was a superstar and has never looked back. For his outstanding contribution to Indian cinema, Dev Anand was honoured with the prestigious the 'Padma Bhushan' in 2001 and 'Dada Saheb Phalke Award' in 2002. He established his film production company 'Navketan International Films' in 1949 and has produced more than 35 movies. Dev Anand has won two Filmfare Awards - India's equivalent of the Oscars - in 1958 for his performance in the film "Kala Paani" (Black Water) and in 1966 for his performance in "Guide". "Guide" went on to win Filmfare Awards in five other categories including "Best Film" and "Best Director" and was sent as India's entry for the Oscars in the foreign film category that year.

Michael Jackson's doctor get four years jail

Michael Jackson's personal physician Conrad Murray was jailed to the maximum of four years in the pop icon's 2009 death with the judge lambasting the doctor for his "money-for-madness" behaviour. Giving Murray the maximum sentence yesterday, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor expressed shock over the doctor's lack of remorse. Pastor said the evidence in the case showed a "continuous pattern of lies and deceit." "He has absolutely no sense of remorse, absolutely no sense of fault and is and remains dangerous," Pastor said ending the seven-week long high profile trial.
Under a new state law, Murray, 58, will serve the sentence in LA County Jail rather than in a state prison. The maximum time Murray would spend in County Jail is two years under state sentencing guidelines, said Steve Whitmore, a spokesman for the county Sheriff's Department. Several members of the Jackson family attended the sentencing hearing. A statement, read by Katherine Jackson attorney, said, "As Michael's parents, we never have imagined we would live to witness his passing. It is simply against the natural order of things. As his children, we will grow up without a father, our best friend, our playmate and our dad." The sentence "reminds physicians that they cannot sell their services to the highest bidder and cast aside their Hippocratic oath to do no harm," it further said.
