Youngistaan Strikes Again

Hi friends!

My exams are about to start in two days and so I have not had the time to watch any of the new movies released- actually I am not really that desperate to watch any of them!! Good news is that after the success of Singh is Kinng Bachna Ae Haseeno has scored too at the box office. This must be a great relief for both producer Yash Raj Films and the lead actor Ranbir Kapoor whose first film Saawariya had bombed at the box office. The movie got a good opening- quite commendable because the Salman starrer God Tussi Great Ho which released alongside got a lukewarm response. So after Imran Khan it's Ranbir who has struck gold.

Out of the newcomers I think three stand out- Neil Nitin Mukesh, Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan (Sorry Harman, you don't really make the list). I truly believe it was Neil Nitin who deserved the all the best newcomer awards last year but then being the scion of the illustrious Kapoor family of course has its advantages. With Bachna... doing well Ranbir has shown that the audience likes him and that he can carry a film on his shoulders pretty well. But of the three I think it is Imran who is going to come out on top- he looks sharp, acts well, and is doing different kinds of roles. His next, Kidnap, is a thriller with him playing a negative character and Imran looks sensation in the promo.

Now some amusing news. Seeing the promo of God Tussi... it didn't require a rocket scientist to realize that it's nothing but a remake of Bruce Almighty. But when the director of the movie Rumy Jaffrey was asked about it he blatantly lied that it's not a remake, that it's based on a folk story. Now that the movie is released everyone knows the truth. Dear Rumy, if you have remade a movie, and that too a movie as popular as Bruce Almighty, at least don't lie about it and make a fool of yourself.

Bye for now friends. Wish me all the best for my exams.
