After appearing in the hit comedy Get Smart, Anne Hathaway returns to the silver screen with the romanctic comedy Bride Wars along with real-life close friend Kate Hudson popularly known from the movie, How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days.This movie is about two childhood friends, Anne Hathaway(Emma) and Kate Hudson(Liv), who have been planning their weddings together their whole life.Now at 26, they are finally engaged. They couldn’t be more excited but due to a mistake, their weddings fall on the same date! Now friendship is put to the ultimate test, since both of them have to compete with each other on having the perfect wedding. Both of them trying different ways to ruin one another’s dream day, so that one of them will back out.

The movie has a few light moments and manages to capture your attention, but the script was at times far from reality and seemed unreal because best friends don’t turn against each other so quickly.It’s hard to expect that from someone as dear as one’s childhood best friend.Almost all of the movie is based on how Emma and Liv try to ruin the details leading up to the wedding which becomes exhausting after a while.Kate Hudson was passable but Anne Hathaway failed to convince me as a character, which is completely different at the beginning of the movie compared to the end.

Ranbir Kapoor, does he have what it takes?

The new ‘in’ thing in Bollywood these days is joining the 100 crore club. If you’ve got muscles like Salman Khan, can dance like Hrithik Roshan and act like SRK then clearly no one can stop you from entering that club.

Ranbir Kapoor in Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani

Ranbir Kapoor, from the moment he stepped into the limelight, we won’t talk about his looks obviously because I can’t possibly describe heaven; Ranbir has managed to cross 100 crores at the box-office with his films as well as act with full throttle. From Saawariya to Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, he has managed to make his place in the world of Khans and Kumars. The acting talent he has shown on the big screen is inspiring, a new genre of heroes is born then and there. Ranbir has made the world realize that you don’t necessarily need an item number or show off the ‘biceps’ to get people to come and watch your movies. It depends merely on style, acting abilities and an exuberant personality.

Ranbir Kapoor in the much awaited Besharam

Ranbir Kapoor in the much awaited Besharam

Ranbir’s movie Besharam is releasing today on Oct 2nd, now if you have listened to the songs and watched their videos about 60 to 70 times like me you will see how much hard work he is putting in to them. The choreography mind you is difficult and he has managed to do it effortlessly. If you look at the dance steps closely, they require immense energy. His expressions are spot on leaving the person watching with intense admiration. Ranbir has adapted a very wise strategy the “in your face” plan. Let me explain: most actors do a film and if it’s a hit, take a backseat and enjoy the success but Ranbir? No, he is doing film after film, is on the screen and cashing in on his opportunities, not saying no to scripts which may be a risk and is doing quality work. He is taking a bold step, doesn’t want his fans to forget him for one second and talk about him constantly. He is in the making of becoming a superstar.

Although he persistently talks about keeping his personal life private, he has had his share of lovely and gorgeous ladies. He has broken Deepika’s heart. Obviously, he is the legendary descendent of the Kapoors, why would he ever marry a normal person? Deepika, please. Also, we can’t ignore the fact that she was too clingy and kept forgiving him for his “just friends” act with other girls. Kitty Kat is fine I suppose. Let me make this clear, I will never approve a girl who is with Ranbir so you must realize how much I have to make myself understand that Katrina Kaif is ‘fine’. Yeah yeah, they look lovely together but is she going to be there for the long haul or pull a Salman Khan on him?

Imran and Ranveer: competition? Nope!

Imran and Ranveer: competition? Nope!

Ranbir Kapoor had the “supposed” competition against him be it Imran Khan or Ranveer Singh but he has left them far behind, they’re not even in the race! Ranveer might be a little dangerous but he’s a bit blurry right now. Oh well, Ranbir is a heartthrob and whatever he does publicly on screen or personally we will love and admire him forever. I wish you best of luck for Besharam, Ranbir. Can’t wait!

Can’t Wait No More: ROCKSTAR

ROCKSTAR is the most awaited film of Ranbir Kapoor. In the year 2011, he did a special appearance in Chillar Party. After a long wait for his fans, now he is starring in a new themed more like a different concept movie, ROCKSTAR. When the promos started coming on TV, I thought what in heaven is Ranbir doing? He is going to ruin his career. I never even bothered to watch the rest of the promo, just used to switch the channel.

Now, after I saw Ranbir Kapoor promoting ROCKSTAR in a reality show, looking handsome and very stylish, his look was very different from the ads being shown, which reminded me that actually Ranbir is a very charming and calm person. Whichever role he will do, he will make it work and give his best. Even the voice behind ROCKSTAR, Mohit Chauhan was there with him, he sang a song which left me bewildered. The voice suits Ranbir, which was a ‘wow’ factor for me. The best songs are ‘Saada Haq’, ‘Naadan Parinday’, ‘Jo Bhi Main’ and ‘Tum Ho’.

Ali Zafar ki Dulhan

It felt so good to see Ali Zafar on the big screen doing his most excellent performance up to date. When I thought of going to the cinema, I knew instantly it would be a complete Masala movie.

“Kesa ye isq hai, ajab sa risk hai”. This was one of the best songs along with “Madhubala” sung by Ali Zafar. It had the right amount of spice and bhangra which will have you moving to the tune. The songs were the best factor of the movie. They were very well choreographed and picturized. Kudos to Bosco-Ceaser for their commendable effort of taking out the best from their actors and dancers.

The movie is about Luv(Ali Zafar) who wants to now settle down. He asks his brother Kush(Imran Khan) to find him a girl. Of course it’s the heroine, Dimple(Katrina Kaif) which Kush eventually finds for his brother and ends up falling in love with her himself.
