    Ok, now we have had a lot of remakes and are even familiar to their fates. Yet, Satish Kaushik dares to remake an all time classic, which was thrashed by the critics then. Who would even imagine, a star like Himesh Reshammiya stepping into the shoes of one of the most charismatic personalities of his time, Rishi Kapoor? Unconventional isn’t it? And this unconventionality works!

    The very first second grips you, as you hear the unplugged version of Lut Jaoon and you are introduced to some breathtaking locales from Cape Town, South Africa. The movie sets itself off ... » read more

    "Karzzzz : The Burden of Remaking"

    When you seem Urmila looking nervous rather than gruesome and ruthless when killing her husband, or Himesh looking deadpan instead of ecstatic while singing a ballad for his love-at-first-sight, You know why classics should not be remade. Karzzzz is a stale rehash of One of the best films of the 80s.

    This potboiler melodrama is made in an out and out Reshammiyaesque aura as we see our Local Michael Jackson (or as made out in the film by the makers by showing girls fainting when he’s singing. Oh really!) trying to carry ... » read more

    " Yeh Karzzzz Mehenga Pada "

    Remaking old movies have sort of become a trend in Bollywood. But whether the trend is good or bad depends on the results. But it has been disappointing so far right from Don, Umrao Jaan, Victoria No 203 and now Kar(1000Z).

    It’s amazing to see that the makers had the plot readymade but still they faltered big time. The basic plot remains the same as Ravi Verma(Dino) is killed by Kamini(Urmila) and is reborn as Monty the rockstar (Himesh). The only difference Ooty becomes Kenya and a twist in the tale in the second half which ... » read more

    What I expected : After seeing 'Ala Barfi' on TV, expectations were quite high, given Pritam's and Ranbir's track record together.!

    Ala Barfi! by Mohit Chauhan makes a great start to the album, the track being a quirky-narrative like funny lazy song sung to excellence by Mohit Chauhan and delightfully orchestrated! Grt hear!

    Ala Barfi! (Version 2) by Swanand Kirkire has a bit toned down and different arrangements and I felt Swanand's singing too is a bit on the downside compared to Mohit's version. Anyway a good hear!

    Kaun Chukaaye Karzzzz!!!

    Once upon a time, there was a Kishore Kumar…

    For almost a decade Kishore Da confined his singing for films he starred in (with an exception of Dev Anand). A few others (e.g. Shailendra Singh) have tried to model their career by being exclusive, but ended up being on the wrong side. Himesh Da is the last so far, to join the culture.

    So here we have a winning script, already converted to a jubilee hit a quarter century ago. Job is easy. The hero, music director and playback singer is the same person. Job is much easier. ... » read more

    The Good Newzzzz and the Bad Newzzzzz

    Good Newzzzz: Karz is getting remade and that too with permissions and blessings. Subhash Ghai and Rishi Kapoor must be thanking their star that they made this film, way back in 1980. Last year it was Om Shanti Om (OSO) paying a trinute to Karz. Not only OSO started with the shooting of Karz, but also featured Ghai and Rishi in a special appearance. OSO was itself derived from the superhit song of Karz and Dard-e-dil became Dard-e-Disco. Dastaan-e-Om was Ek Hasina Thi revisited
    Bad Newzzzz: The director had to be Satish ... » read more
