If all goes well, A.R. Rahman would be composing music for an Imtiaz Ali film again after Rockstar. That would be for the film Highway where Randeep Hooda would turn out to be an unlikely candidate for getting yet another musical to his name after Murder 3.
“It is almost certain that Rahman is on board for Highway. Though there have been on and off murmurs for quite some time around him consenting to this Sajid Nadiadwala production, it is a matter of formality now. Rahman shares a very good relationship with Imtiaz and not many are aware that he had composed some tracks many years ago when Rockstar was being planned with John Abraham. Though Imtiaz had roped in Pritam for Jab We Met and Love Aaj Kal, it was back to Rahman for him when Ranbir Kapoor joined Rockstar”, informs a source.
The relationship continues with Highway where Randeep Hooda is playing the lead along with Alia Bhatt, hence resulting in yet another unconventional cocktail.
“It would be quite interesting since the coming together of Rahman, Imtiaz and Nadiadwala is unique in its own way. Each of them comes with his own artistic and commercial sense. Their collaboration should be interesting. Moreover Nadiadwala would be working with Rahman for the first time. As for Imtiaz, music of his films is always very special. He is very excited since the film is not just a love story; it has got a very strong thrill element to it as well. Rahman has a good range of situations to munch on”, the source adds.
BestFor Rockstar, Rahman had given much more than what Imtiaz would have demanded by churning out 14 distinct tracks. Now it has to be seen that for this Highway, how many situations arise for him to go ballistic all over again.
finally saw GOW-2 and what a letdown from the first one, the chase sequences are so many and so long and unending, the whole set up is too filmy unlike the first one…
Nawaz is good but he was much much better in Talaash….
two scenes which stood out were- 1. when Ramdhari singh asks his son- kaun see picture dekhi- he goes DDLJ , Ramdhari singh goes- “Tum Rehney do beta, Tumsey Na ho Payega yeh sab”……,
and 2. when Yashpal sharma counts 1-2-3 to before singing the next line of the song – teri meharbaniyan !!!!
overall- way too much gun shots, chases, violence and long!!!
completely agree with your review of Part-2, also I was wondering about the following as well, and Definite’s plan was so full of shit and dependant on LUCK, that one wrong turn and he himself could have been killed….
And then there’s the long awaited climax, Faisal Khan’s reckoning with Ramadhir, a pornography of blood, gore, and guns devoid of any dramatic impact. [Or necessity: the film ends because at some point, Faisal Khan decides it's time to take out Ramadhir, without regard to any of the constraints that presumably prevented him from doing so over the preceding couple of hours.] Ramadhir, easily the most interesting character in the second film, deserved better.
Check out at 1.24 ticker for the Epic countdown……also the song is Yaad teri aayegi, mujhko bada satayegi……the teri menharbaniyan was much later…
She’s perhaps right. Govind Nihalani says he hasn’t seen GOW Part 2 or Love Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana. Says he, “So it would be unfair to compare Huma with Smita Patil or Vidya Balan who have a bigger body of work behind them, but from what little I saw of her in GOW Part I, I could see that she has a tremendous screen presence. Also, an earthiness, sincerity, intensity and warmth of personality, qualities that distinguished Smita, apart from the fact that she was a very fine and instinctive actress. Huma is a good enough actress on her own, someone who can stand apart from the crowd and hold her own
Huma is now looking forward to Dedh Ishkiya, in which she has replaced Kangna Ranaut. She says she’s thrilled to be working with Madhuri Dixit, Naseeruddin Shah, Arshad Warsi and director Abhishek Chaubey, who, she holds, epitomises “small town cool” with all its “trademark quirkiness”.
Once again the same tired arguments. A film does not automatically become better because it’s more ‘factual’. But secondly there is also that banal notion of ‘reality’. Anyway have expanded on all of this before.
