HAPPY BIRTHDAY SALMAN SIR!

Abdul Rashid Salim Salman Khan, born on 27th December’1965, the man who’s father created a rage as a scriptwriter, the man who has seen it all, the man who has gone through so many turbulences in life but never complaint about it. He turns 48 today and still looks better than most of us. Some people have been talking crap about him, calling him “budha” and “biased,” I pity such people because they completely forget that he is the one who started the gym factor in India. What will he get by being biased? He has everything, supporting these people it won’t get him anything. He says what he feels, he sticks to his words. Obviously if he’s attached to someone’s family, he can’t be shouting and yelling at them publicly. If we would have been in a similar situation, we would have done the same thing. But, he did point out their mistakes. (Yes, I am talking about Armaan Kohli and Tanisha Mukherjee) He went inside the house as well but most of all, I blame the Bigg Boss team as they have used Salman’s name in a cheap manner, to gain TRP’s. They edited out stuff in such a way that made Salman look bad. He was never against Kushal Tandon, (The man who’s full off arrogance) Salman corrected him because he somehow cared about him but what did Kushal do in return? He made faces and spoke rudely but still, Salman didn’t do anything.
Kushal got evicted, people blamed Salman? LOL? If Salman had control over all this, Rajat Rawail would have won this show irrespective of his weird and sissy behaviour. I wish people had the brains to understand this man who has a golden heart.
People call him a criminal, a murder? Oh really? It was his driver who was driving the car, it wasn’t him. Anyway, that’s another issue and we have no right to talk about that. It’s his life. People call him a woman-beater? His ex said it an interview that he’s never raised his hand, then why so much of crap? If you do that, it is normal. If Salman does that, it’s an issue? He’s a normal human being, he doesn’t like to live like a star. He still lives where he used to live earlier, even after earning so much. He still goes out cycling, which star does that? Plus, he’s not just a star, he’s a superstar. Which superstar would give his personal examples on a public platform, that too, to strangers? He has said it a zillion times: “I am not a good actor. I do what I feel I can do and I’ve just been lucky. For me, being a good human being is more important than being a good actor. The day I won’t have this stardom and I’ll be able to survive, that day I’ll consider myself as something.”
He has been a godfather to so many people but he’s never taken credit for that. Be it Sajid Wajid, Himesh Reshamiya, Hrithik Roshan, Katrina Kaif, Sonakshi Sinha, Arjun Kapoor, Mahek Chahal, Daisy Shah, Sana Khan, Santosh Shukla, Zarine Khan, Sneha Ullal, Ashmit Patel, Pulkit Samrat, Athiya Shetty, Suraj Pancholi and the list is never-ending

This man is the best and no one can ever be like him. I love him more than the world. On Koffee With Karan, when Mr. Salim Khan was speaking, Salman kept quiet and heard him speak rather than interrupting in between, that shows the amount of respect he has for him, till date. If I could be, even 1% of what he actually is, my life would have a meaning and I’ll have a successful life for sure.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SALMAN KHAN, YOU MIGHT OR MIGHT NOT SEE THIS BUT YOU’RE THE BEST AND I’M YOUR BIGGEST FANNNNN. NOT BECAUSE YOU’RE A SUPERSTAR AND YOU GIVE BLOCKBUSTERS, BUT FOR THE PERSON YOU ARE.
LOVE YOU SO MUCH SIR.
MAY GOD BLESS YOU WITH NEVER-ENDING SUCCESS AND HAPPINESS.
JAI HO & KICK- CHECK.

REVIEW- DHOOM 3

Story, screenplay and direction: Vijay Krishna Acharya.
Produced by: Aditya Chopra.
Starring: Aamir Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Uday Chopra, Katrina Kaif, Jackie Shroff and Siddharth Nigam.
Music: Pritam, Julius Packiam.
Background Score: Julius Packiam.
Cinematography: Sudeep Chatterjee.
Editing– Ritesh Soni.

Romance, comedy, action, thrillers and etc etc. Filmmaking has a lot of genres. The Dhoom series, it’s actually a combo meal for the viewers, as it nearly had all these elements in it.

In 2004, we saw how YRF came up with this unique idea of making a film on bikers and it had John Abraham, who was playing the villain. Everybody thought it would fail at the box office and it won’t last but, it actually created a rage amongst the youngsters and gave us “John- The Actor.” People said that it’s an Indian version of Joseph Kahn’s Torque but still, it did quite well and people enjoyed the characters.

In 2006, Dhoom 2 released and broke all the records, becoming a huge blockbuster. Clearly, the hotness quotient went to another level, as we had Hrithik Roshan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Bipasha Basu in this one. Dhoom 2 belonged to Hrithik and the sheer conviction, it just took it to another level.

So, there was a lot speculations about the 3rd instalment and after 7 long years, YRF came out with D:3. This time, Vijay Krishna Acharya (who wrote the first 2 instalments) stepped into the shoes of Sanjay Gadhvi (who directed ‘Dhoom and Dhoom2) and guess what? We have Aamir Khan as the villain. Since, the Dhoom franchise has always been about style and sex appeal along with a determined performance, many people doubted Aamir’s ability. There were direct comparisons between Hrithik and Aamir. The movie wasn’t promoted that much by Aamir and YRF but still, it generated curiosity amongst all of us.

Dhoom 3 begins with the introduction of Sahir played by Siddharth Nigam (Young Sahir). His introduction is old-school but kick-ass.  It had something about it and the film started off on a high note. Then came our very own Jaggu Dada, i.e Jackie Shroff (Iqbal, Sahir’s father) and his screen presence along with the voiceovers, it was a treat.
The western bank of Chicago lent money to Iqbal Khan so that he could save his circus but they decided to close down the circus as he wasn’t able to repay the loan. The scene where Sahir pleads with Anderson not to shut down his father’s circus as he and his father would soon be able to turn the corner: It had so much of emotions attached to it and Siddharth Nigam nailed that one.
But Iqbal Khan’s presentation before the bankers and Sahir’s pleas don’t help. Iqbal Khan commits suicide in front of Anderson, leaving Sahir devastated and full off vengeance.
The next shot, Aamir’s introduction. The camera work and Aamir’s diction, it has so much of depth that it would move anyone who’s crazy about cinema and the art of filmmaking. Sahir wants revenge and he certainly decides to rob all the branches of the same bank. The first robbery is disappointing and it’s easy to guess that it’s been done with the help of VFX. Nevertheless, the introduction of Jay and Ali (Abhishek Bachchan and Uday Chopra) is okay-ish. Thanks to Uday, you’ll have a smile on your face but overall, the introduction is disappointing. Same goes for Aliya (Katrina Kaif).
Vijay wasted a lot of time on the introduction of the characters and he could have saved a lot of time by cutting it short.
The plot has been inspired by “The Prestige” and if you have seen it, then you might find Dhoom 3 a bit boring and people who haven’t, I’m sure you’ll enjoy the chase and the thrill.
The screenplay is a bit dull as the film loses pace in between and make you wonder, what exactly is happening?
But the fact is that, Dhoom 3 is Aamir Khan’s show. Why should you watch this film? It’s because of him.
The dedication and the urge to play Sahir and Samar, you need guts to that. Samar is Sahir’s autistic twin brother about whom I won’t talk much. Both the characters are poles apart, the only similarities are: They are twins, they are criminals and both of them are gymnasts. Hats off to Aamir! He makes you believe that he is Samar, he makes you believe that he is Sahir. The scene where Samar realises that he’s lonely and he realises that he is what he is, because of Sahir: Perfectly executed. Aamir is bang on.
Abhishek Bachchan is one of the most underrated actors we have and he certainly deserves acknowledgement for this one.
He is really soothing and decent as Jay. I don’t know why people make fun of Uday Chopra because he always delivers a decent performance, specially as Ali. Uday manages to crack you up with his one liners and stupid English.
He deserves some credit as he’s from such a big family and developing this “ghaati diction” it surely is something great.
Whereas, Katrina Kaif is wasted. She looks hotter than Esha Deol, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Bipasha Basu. But sadly, her role in not dignified. How did she fall for Samar? All of a sudden? When she actually used to hit on Sahir. In the end, we see that she handles “The Great Indian Circus.” Why does she? She suddenly surrendered her life to Samar? Really messed up.
But she looks hot and dances sensuously. Aishwarya had a better role in Dhoom 2 and obviously, the chemistry between Hrithik and Aishwarya was way better than Katrina and Aamir’s chemistry. But anyway, the actual chemistry is between Sahir and Samar.
So, Aamir Khan manages to play both the characters to perfection and makes you believe that Sahir and Samar are two different people, even though they are portrayed by the same man.

The cinematography by Sudeep Chatterjee is sorcerous and it just raised the bar for all our cinematographers. Now, that’s camerawork, seriously! The editing by Ritesh Soni is quite a disappointment, he could have edited it and made it compact.
Music by Pritam’s good, not top notch but soothing to the ears. Specially Malang, which is the most expensive song of Bollywood.
Siddharth Mahadevan and Shilpa Rao- Their voices are divine. But, visually this song will drive you insane.
Sudeep Chatterjee deserves a thunderous applause for Malang. He has shot it with so much of grace and perfection that it’ll teach a lot of aspiring filmmakers and cinematographers about certain aspects of filmmaking. It’s the WOW song.
Kamli, sung by Sunidhi’s good but not that amazing, whereas Katrina looks HOT in the song and dances beautifully. Thumbs up.
Aamir’s dedication towards his work, it needs no introduction right? The tap dance is obviously not perfect but it is certainly quite amazing to see him take the initiative and deliver it with ease. He looks stunning and the music is bang on.
My personal favourite: Bande hain hum uske, sung by Shivam Mahadevan and Anish Sharma, it’s the most beautiful composition along with the most innocent and loveable vocals. It’ll leave you with some tears in your eyes.

On the whole, Dhoom 3 is an Aamir Khan film as the others don’t have much to do. The story and the screenplay could have been a lot better. The highlight about the chase sequences: The camerawork.
Dhoom 3 is not about stylish and hot thieves, this time it’s about emotions. Father-son emotions and brotherhood. It does bring about the emotion inside you. I just wish Vijay Acharya had written it with a lot more ‘sense’ but nevertheless, it is a one time watch for sure. Some people might not agree with me but it deserves to be watched: For Aamir Khan and for Sudeep Chatterjee’s brilliant camerawork.
If people enjoyed Chennai Express and Krrish 3, then Dhoom 3 certainly won’t disappoint you.

RATING- 3/5

Common People-Eternal Superheroes!

-Wrote this for a college event. Keeping Spiderman in mind.

We talk about politics in India and nearly 90 percent of the country turns antagonistic. Am I right? Or Am I right? A person like me, who was never bothered about politics or about the situation of our country and who literally gave a damn about the political parties, has been affected by this infectious mosquito called “corruption.” It is everywhere. Yes! Corruption is everywhere. From schools to colleges. Colleges to offices and offices to the Parliament. What are we doing about it? Nothing! Except cribbing about it, all day long. Wherever I go, people just talk about how corrupt our government is and how our politicians are thieves dressed up in decent Kurta-Pyjamas.Why don’t we realize that we have the power to change this ugly scenario? YES, WE DO!

When it is about the government, when it is about the votes- You, me, your servant and my driver. We are all the same. The power lies within us, the power lies within the common man. 

The situation is worsening each day. Our present government, what is it doing? Do you think they are bothered about the rapes? Or the dropping economy? They are more concerned about the fact that Narendra Modi and Arvind Kejriwal have sacked the hell out of them. We can’t let this happen, we can’t let the beauty of our country evanescence like this. Vote for the right one, vote for the one you trust. The rest are going to bribe. They are going to make false promises, just like they have been doing since ages. 

All these people are like Doctor Octopus and Green Goblin. They have the power but they are using it to “own” our country and not work for the betterment of it. So, why should we lag behind? Our vote is our superpower. We will vote for the right one and these belittled villains are automatically going to get destroyed.

Even Spidey wants you to vote, he wants you to showcase your power…it’s not so hard, just about the right one and the respectable one to empower.          
GO FOR IT GUYS! 

Country’s Dilemma- Politics

The government we have… is surely corrupt, 

bribery and position comes first, why always so abrupt?

How do we cope with this? How do we survive?

Monetary satisfaction, the only reason why these greedy chipmunks thrive.

The entire country wonders, why can’t we burn such people alive?

I’d suggest something better, I’d suggest something sufficient… 

no violence…no abusing, one vote is all we need to cast,

keeping aside the past, remembering the people who got harassed…

coming together as an amassed, let’s just go for it…let’s do it at last. 

Choose the one you believe in…choose the one you think is right,

voting is our superpower, it’s our only ray of light…

so, let’s just hold on to each other really very tight,

things will change…things will work, we’ll have a much better sight.
