A comedians triple role, kidnap, ransom and murder
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
May 30, 2008

Movies this week:

A young successful man tries to help his troubled roommate out of a sticky situation he lands in- one that threatens to throw his career and love life out of gear. How he gets himself out of the situation and wins back his girlfriend is told in the funniest manner possible.

Hastey Hastey

Another comedy hits the theaters this Friday after a string of laughathons failed to bring any smile onto the faces of the distributors. Touted to be a 2 hour fun ride with Rajpal Yadav in a triple role for the first time, the whole industry is looking forward to Hastey Hastey to revive the sagging trend that comedies are facing. Jimmy Shergill returns to playing the lead after a long time, which also has comic veteran Shakthi Kapoor in an important role.

Woodstock Villa
Kidnap, ransom, murder, deception and twists that belie even the most intuitive of thinkers, Woodstock Villa is a contemporary thriller that promises to keep you on your seat’s edge. The story begins with the disappearance of a wealthy businessman’s wife. Demands of huge sums follow and as the trail of the criminals catches heat, many uncomfortable truths unfold.

Veteran actor Anupam Kher’s son Sikander Kher makes his debut in Bollywood with this suspense thriller. Giving him company is another debutant Neha Oberoi. The movie also has Arbaz Khan and Boman Irani in key roles while Saif Ali Khan and Sanjay Dutt (also one of the film’s producers) make special appearances.
The climatic stages of the IPL looms large over these flicks which just cannot afford to wait for one more week and run into a few biggies.

From Last Week:

Dhoom Dadakka
There was no Dhoom at the box office for this wannabe comic flick. Hardly few laughs were raised as the narration went flat in the second half. Without much star value and poor word of mouth, this youthful joy ride didn’t even manage to save face at the theaters. Surely a sad end to what looked like a promising effort.

Don Muthuswami
‘Like son, like father’- not the way in which this adage is usually said but it has been correctly adapted to the situation. Mimoh Chakravorthy had a disaster of a debut two weeks backs with Jimmy. Now, a Mithun Chakravorthy starrer has come crashing down. Not that great things were expected but certainly minimum returns were looked forward to. The story of an underworld don with a very strong comic streak couldn’t make many laugh. The script was the culprit here, with those who have seen the movie pointing to Mithun as the sole grace.

Jannat meanwhile is rock steady at most locations, guess the cricket fever is still strong everywhere.

Sneak Preview:

A tale of a man who decides to choose his own destiny, to lead instead of follow. From the dark lanes of Mumbai, a youth decides that it is time to take on the world on his terms. Starring Rajeev Khandelwal in the lead, the movie looks like a gripping tale of ambition and determination.

Hum sey Hain Jahaan
The beginning is always due to helplessness, then it turns to a habit and then an addiction and unending ambition. A young man needs some money badly and devices what he thinks is an ingenious way of making money and ensuring a good life. But he carries the game too far and things get out of hand. Can he get things back on track or is his life on the line because of his ambition. Comedy is the main flavor in this story of actions going horribly wrong. Jackie Shroff will be seen in a good role after quite some time.

Sarkar Raj
Finally, the summer’s big draw. The Naghre family is back from where we left off three years back and this time we have a new character. Set to explore the stormy political corridors of Mumbai, the lives of power wielders and one man who works for the masses. The Bachchan family hits us in full force with Aishwarya playing what is maybe the strongest role of her career. Ramgopal Verma’s attempt at redemption is being eagerly watched by everyone in the industry.

Music to watch out for:

Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Naa:
Just in case you are not yet aware that Rahman’s latest compositions have hit the stands. The ‘kabhie kabhie Aditi’ song is particularly delightful.

Also new to the stands are

Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic: From the Yashraj banner with Shankar Ehsaan Loy’s music.

Love Story 2050: Producer Harry Baweja’s launchpad for his son Harman. Music by veteran composer Anu Malik.
