But Sonu sood is a Bad Bad choice for Dawood.
I am looking forward to it inspite of some horrendous casting decisions. I loved Dongri To Dubai and have also enjoyed quite a few films of Gupta- Kaante, Aatish, Musafir and Zinda (Jung suffered from major production issues and Ram Shastra and Hamesha were plain bad).
Now agreed John is not a fine actor by any means and seems to be completely miscast but atleast he looks good unlike some other choco-puppies
well, saurabh IS an impressive guy. he also admitted that he prefers guys who are ‘miscast but look good’ as opposed to choco-puppies who are not eating steroid-flakes for breakfast.
and thank goodness for that, my puppy would be offended to be compared to abraham.
now before you get all upset saurabh, i am just pulling your leg (while channeling ami)
This trailer is indeed farcical — although I’m willing to bet it’s better than the film will be. The notion that any of the protagonists, including Anil Kapoor’s hyper-active SP, saw the shoot out at wadala as some seismic event in bombay’s history, is what lends the whole thing an undertone of comedy.
Not sure why this poor guy is being ganged up against–what he said about John is right …
Just bcos some people here always choose to react in unison and NEVER disagree on anything ( in a perverse manner somewhat!)–doesn’t mean everyone has to tow the line!
John is not an ‘actor’ in the true sense but so are most of the current ‘stars’ –the leading heros who can actually act in Bollywood can be counted with the fingers of ONE hand
Yeah he is going overboard here though…
And what’s irritating is his ‘belief’ that he is doing a good job–but it’s better than some passive inane starsons.
But given what the audience likes nowadays–highlighter in bold colors !!
in a lighter vein – even Emran H. can’t act. He can only smooch the heroines..But so what? he gets plenty of pretty babes lined up to be smooched and sc****d and he gets paid handsomely – so why bother acting?
So between the OUATIM’s, Shootouts, Sarkars and Company; they have pretty much charted out Mumbai underworld since the 80s. But this is the first commercial movie (leaving Black Friday aside) where they actually have a character named Dawood Ibrahim, as well as his deceased elder brother. Looks like Bhai has given the green signal for his family name to be used so flagrantly. Doubt that these guys wouldve had the balls to do this without the consent from Pakistan.
The choreography of these item numbers is increasingly so stale that one wonders why anyone bothers to include them: there isn’t even a titillation factor that I can see, and the lewd step here (breasts-and-guns) seems to be from the world of American Pie and the humor of Judd Apatow, rather than from 1980s Bombay…
Ok as mentioned –checked out bits of this ‘item song’–I’m not impressed and that’s surprising for PC
usually she is a competent performer and I somewhat respect her as an achiever as well.
Now a recent track where I felt PC was in her element. This was necessitated to match katrinas chikni chameli
But it’s a counter foil & a totally different style of track
Infact not the whistling type of item song and didn’t get that popular
But note the subtle mastery over Bollywood dance numbers and moreover the TIMING of PC
In some junctures, PC reminded of madhuri at her peak here
But alas PC is/ was let down somewhat by her looks and her styling here is subpar
