    My first film production is almost in place – A R Rahman 

    A R Rahman is getting into film production. “My first film production is almost in place. This is something I wanted to do for some time now. But my other commitments didn’t allow me to,” he said.

    At the moment he is not willing give away too many details about the film he will produce.
    Says Rahman, “My first film production is in Hindi. Why did I choose this language? Because it’s a North Indian story.”

    Rahman says he needed to create his own cinema to accommodate his musical vision. “Every filmmaker comes to me with his own idea and vision….one happy song, sad song, a dance number….and so on. My own creative vision gets submerged in the larger picture. Producing a film will give me the platform I needed for my music. In fact producing music videos was also a preparation for film production, as they gave me a chance to express my music in the visual terms that I wanted.”

    Rahman singles out Vishal Bhardwaj for making the transition from music to filmmaking. “Vishal was able to express his music in cinema. Which is the transition that I am looking at.”

    At the moment, though, Rahman is not looking at …read more

    Super Nani release postponed by a week 

    Indra Kumar’s next film Super Nani has been in news since past few weeks as the film geared up for its release in October after much delay. The biggest highlight of the film is that it marks the comeback of veteran actress Rekha to the silver screen after a long gap and that too in an author backed role. The film also stars Sharman Joshi and Indra Kumar’s daughter Shweta Kumar in lead.

    The promo of Super Nani was recently released along with Sonam Kapoor starrer Khoobsurat, which ironically was the remake of Rekha’s 80s hit film by the same name. The major roadblock for this Rekha starrer however was that it was scheduled to release on October 24 against Shah Rukh Khan’s Happy New Year. Though one can argue that two films can release side by side, the producers of Super Nani realized that it was not a sensible plan to clash with SRK’s biggie as the distributors too were finding it difficult to get enough screens for the Rekha starrer.

    Hence, Indra Kumar and Ashok Thakeria have decided to move Super Nani ahead by a week and the film will now release on Oct 31. …read more

    I dont understand how YRF can have double standards – Rohan Sippy 

    Rhea Chakraborty’s next release Sonali Cable was set to release on big screen on October 10, however now we hear that the film has been pushed to October 17. Apparently, the producer Rohan Sippy wanted Rhea to promote the film for some more time before the release and hence changed the release date. But unfortunately it turns out that Yash Raj Films, which manages Rhea’s work, has not allotted Rhea’s dates to the filmmaker.

    A inside source close of the filmmaker says, “YRF was informed in advance about this possible change of date and in any case, small budget films need to be promoted. So we need Rhea’s dates but YRF has not given her dates for a week. It’s unfortunate that they are doing this with regards to their talent working for another producer.”

    Rohan Sippy confirms that they are currently facing issues with Rhea’s dates. “I don’t know if she can promote the film or not. But it’s strange that Rhea’s management is not reverting to us about her dates. Since she plays the title character, we can’t finalize the promotion schedule,” he says.

    The filmmaker adds that young actors should understand the importance of promoting a film; even …read more

    DVD Review: The Lego Movie 

    Directors: Phil Lord and Christopher Miller
    Cast (in voices): Chris Patt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman

    Running time:
    96 minutes
    Bonus features: Fan-made Lego films
    The song – Everything is Awesome

    Animated films are specifically made keeping children in mind and hence the job of making one is tough. While Lego blocks have always been amongst children’s favourite toys, this is the first time they’ve made it to the big screen in an out and out animated avatar. The basic criterion of playing with these coloured blocks is imagination and this film builds the perfect storyline keeping that key factor alive. The film was an enjoyable fare in theatres and this flawless DVD should definitely make an entry to your video rack.

    The Lego Movie tells the tale of the adventures of an average construction guy Emmet (voice of Chris Pratt) who is mistaken for ‘The Special’. The Special is a master builder prophesied to save the world. The bad man of the film, Lord Business (Will Ferrell) is planning to destroy the …read more
