Of late your comments/assessment on this post and the Tamasha poster thread have been unerring to Deepika state of mind. …….. i dont know if it is telepathic ? intuitive ? psychic ?
Compliments from my side !
Ranbir for all the hullabaloo for being most talented actor around has easily got typecast now. This is so much the same he has done before. Imtiaz Ali has never made a fully realized and fulfilling movie until now and though JWM worked with the crowd it was too simplistic for movie to stand out.
On Ranbir , the minute he tries to step out of this comfort zone he exposes his shortcomings so this and the next KJo movie is the route he will take until he reestablishes himself which takes him to 2017/2018. After that its still a wait and watch approach.
Mine thoughts are same . From Bachna A haseeno till YJHD..Don’t know how many times Ranbeer has done this. Future Superstar Huh ! Even Deepika is doing same role. Still she is doing some intrestin work in between. But sala apna to bad luck hi kharab hai i am backing Ranveer singh wo bhi nahi chal raha hai. Finger crossed for ‘Bajirao Mastani’. Even there Bhansali’s ego could backfire. They should not Release thier film with ‘Dilwale’
So tired of this been-there-done-that Ranbir act now. His attempts at breaking out of the mould have backfired in the last cpl of yrs, soon he will find himself lagging behind Ranvir/VarunD. One does wonder though with all these contemporary under-30 heroes, when will they have a breakout moment like DDLJ/HAHK/RH or even a Deewar by a longshot? Or perhaps this is a new paradigm, where none of them will become true mass superstars of yore.
If this one doesn’t work then Ranbir is in trouble coz Jagga Jasoos won’t work, certainly not after infinite delays. Then it’ll be too long without a hit (last would be YJHD in 2013) before Karan Johar’s next in Diwali 2016. Karan’s movie can go eitherways as well and is not a sureshot hit as earlier especially if Ranbir is not on success path. Nothing officially signed after these movies. That Superhero movie gotta stop, certainly not when you are not doing well.
Almost unanimous reaction is the deja-vu feeling and uninteresting. This it not a sureshot blockbuster anymore. It can do well around 150 crores at best but Ranbir needs a solid 200cr hit to get back on track.
200 isn’t a fair bar at all for this sort of film. YJHD would have done this much in today’s money, more or less, but that film surprised with a very strong performance. There’s almost no multiplex deal that does this much. It’s usually a much more mass-oriented subject. Of course there are enough multiplexes for such films to do 200 routinely but it just never happens. Because these genres are largely empty. But also if 200 is the bar here what should the bar be for other important stars in mass subjects. One should begin counting at 300!
150 would be more than enough here. Anything beyond this would be a bonus. With this genre they could probably even get away with 130 or something assuming most of it doesn’t come in week 1.
I’m saying 200 cr for a ‘solid hit’ without any doubt to just get back Ranbir on track. Blockbuster(250, 300) will be something else. YJHD is a blockbuster and doesn’t happen with every film especially when he’s not even able to get a small hit after that.
I think people have become a lot more unforgiving as well. Stars do the same genres for years and years. What was SRK doing for so long? I think the bigger issue might be that the media has oversold him for a long time as a sensational actor and star. So when a couple of films don’t work (admittedly not ordinary failures) if you then get back to business-as-usual this is of course not as interesting. But then the interesting stuff doesn’t work most of the time. Even Rockstar was just about ok all things considered. I’m no fan of this genre but I’ve seen plenty work along these lines. This should get a good initial one way or the other. but yes I’d be surprised if it’s half the film that Rockstar was and that’s not the highest bar imaginable. It might also be that directors sometimes push these things a bit too far and it starts becoming ridiculous. Corsica? C’mon!
I don’t think anyone has pointing out about the genres here. I would think no one react the same for Karan’s movie with Ranbir even if its the same genre. But here the characters are looking from other movies like Kabir from YJHD wants to break routine life and goes to Paris and Deepika being part of it. Deepika’s Cocktail character(also written by Imtiaz Ali) also reflecting here. So multiple things contributing to the Deja Vu feeling.
All things said, this is just reaction of the trailer, movie can be different and actually has very good story different from any of the previous said movies.
Beard look never goes in favor of BO results, this has been the history of bollywood. Beard look doesnt appeal indian audience in a commercial movie. Khans have always kept this in mind, jr b destroyed himself with beard look, even Akshay made bad decision to keep beard look in gabbar and brothers. Now, ranbir is doing same mistake.
thecooldude: actually the song might grow on one, and has some really interesting lyrics. With ARR, the number of times I have written off a song as “below par” only to find my way to it later, is large enough that I’m going to hold my tongue until I listen to the album…
Man, for some reason, I convinced myself Imtiaz Ali might actually be good after Rockstar and Highway but this is umitigated, unredeemable garbage. What is this song, really? A native ad for the tourism agency of some Southern European country with product placements for American Apparel, Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters? Seriously?
This film is about a dude who has to go back to “work” because you have to be realistic or some shit. And apparently this is how he dresses? Does that even seem real to anyone?
‘as for the movie otherwise the less said the better..!’
Lol As if you have watched the movie. This is the limit of bias.
‘must say the songs are not a patch on Rockstar so far’
No one said it is comparable to rockstar.
Will you compare PRDP with sogs of hAhk? Or trash the movie right now based on the trailer?
Of course not, because your ultimate hidden agenda will never let you do so. Srk and salman two criminal vultures and a shameful blot on acting are living on earth and you worship them shamelessly and encourgage many empty headed to love their shit. BS
Didn’t want to kick you down with SRK having another 200 crore (2 in a row) and the whole All is Well fiasco 🙂
Jokes aside, I was away in India. What a journey. Had not been there since I had got married about 17 years ago.
For all it’s faults be it corruption, religious issues, poverty, etc…
There’s something about India which gives me inner happiness when I’m there. Part of it could be that it’s my birth place or maybe because I’m away from stressful robotic life of USA (Northeast is probably the worst as far as hectic lifestyle is concerned).
The best part of the trip is now my children have whole new understanding of what they have here and the things they normally took for granted 🙂
200 cr in a row ? in which world.
HNY was no where near 200 cr, even if you take producers number it was stuck at 170 cr. None of the boxoffice site reported 200 cr. It was below YJHD even after releasing 1.5 year.
Funny to hear HNY collections. Obviously it didn’t too well but even BOI calls its Superhit and at 178 crores (180 apprx). Producers numbers are 203 crores. Which is apprx 10% difference which is same as Chennai Express where BOI is at 208 crs and official figures at 227 crs. Usually 10-12% is the norm between Producers and BOI numbers. Only in the case of Hrithik’s movies, it is very large number.
Btw, YJHD did about 177 crores at BOI and HNY did 178 crores.
Whatever the fight over the numbers the idea that this is a super hit film is just absurd, for multiple reasons, all of which would be simply too tiring to rehearse. What does happen though is that fans of a particular star hold on to these ratings desperately (hate to put it at bluntly as this but it’s true) and cherry-pick stuff. The problem as always is about the larger spectrum. So if HNY is a super hit at that total (even leaving aside questions of trending) what does it say about similar films that do much more or lesser films that do the same. Somewhere the ratings just become absurd when you put everything together. Which has of course been an old point of mine. To then ‘solve’ the absurdity that arises people come up with even greater absurdities. These are arbitrary numbers across the board on budgets and so forth. Anything that makes the original absurd claim seem reasonable but which then creates a new kind of absurdity. Again won’t rehearse all the examples here. Not least because this isn’t rocket science. It’s fairly obvious what’s going on but again if the desperate fan wants to cling on to anything and everything that’s another matter. Let’s now move on to ‘Dilwale would have done 300 without BM’! Because of course CE did this without the same competition!
“200 cr in a row ? in which world.

Satyam: Now you are shifting the argument. I’m not contesting with the Super-hit tag and actually doesn’t accept BOI’s claim. The point was about totals and when I put that across you’ve moved to its super-hit status.
Not shifting anything. Neither side cites these things innocently. When people want to they focus on the tags, otherwise they go with the numbers. And so on. One has to look at the larger contexts. To say that one is simply quoting numbers without attaching any greater meaning to them is not something I buy. If those who are against SRK use the numbers to say he’s not big enough well then the fans also use the numbers they like to make the opposite claim. No one’s an honest broker in these debates. And the fans prove this at least as regularly as those who argue against the same stars. And again speaking for myself I’ve made the very same claims whether it’s HNY or ETT before it. On the numbers, on the ratings, on how the ratings are calculated and so on. For me it’s always an ‘all of the above’ deal. When one selects one thing or the other one is just trying to select the narrative that suits one. And so I am not really interested in one ‘limited’ claim or the other. I am more interested in the framing given to these ‘limited’ claims.
its not for faint hearted,you can argue as much as you want ” Z” but the truth is srk is in decline ,he has had his innings,its not srk fault but every actor goes through so thats why i said reality hurts,khanna,bachan went through same phase,srk,salman and amir will get turns and vice-versa,I do not intend to further arguments so I will end it here,srk is in decline
but ‘top 5’ is rather arbitrary isn’t it? Why not ‘top 2’? why not ‘top star’? When SRK was doing better than Salman were you thinking of a ‘top 5’? Again your comment offers perfect evidence of what I’m trying to say. I’m not saying he’s in a ‘bad’ position though the decline point is proved by your own comment. You’re just negotiating the ‘top 5’ at this point! But in any case to repeat what I said maybe I just want to talk about the ‘top 2’!
To finish up my above comment, I just hope SRK and Aamir go out at the right time like how Dilip Kumar did (stayed as a lead actor right till the end), not stick around and become irrelevant and start doing cameo or side actor roles in irrelevant movies …
S: Looks like there is no point in any discussion. Well, whatever one says or write, you are reading only your thoughts which is not going to change. If you can’t be read posts/comments objectively, there isn’t worth discussing anything. You already have hard coded opinions in your brain, nothing can be done to change it.
Or for that matter Salman Worship by Satyam 😉 😉 😉 That space is reserved one and only for ” Amitabh Bachchan”.Itne din se blog par aane ke baad bhi ye to “Blunder” ho gaya Raghav bhai. Hadd hai ki aap itni “Basic” si baat nahi pata 😉 . All the very best for the recovery 🙂

Deepika Padukone – Ranbir Kapoor share an intense love-making scene in Tamasha
By Subhash K. Jha, Oct 21, 2015 – 10:41 hrs IST
Former lovers Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone won’t allow their current relationships (with Katrina Kaif and Ranveer Singh, respectively) to come in the way of their professionalism.
One has now come to know that Ranbir and Deepika share an intense raw and lengthy love-making sequence in Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha, of the kind the two actors have never done before in their respective careers.
Says the source, “The sequence comes at a crucial point in the plot and there was no way that (director) Imtiaz Ali could either remove the love-making scene or tone it down. Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone did the sequence like thorough professionals. Hopefully the censor board would treat the sequence with equal professionalism.”
Oh wow they’ve gone a nicked a shot from My Blueberry Nights, I see.
Every time they do that I wonder whose idea was it? The Director’s or the DP’s?
At least with Anurag Kashyap you know it was his because he steals so many. In fact, I think that he probably reverse engineers scenes so that he can write a situation where he can have these set piece-y/show-offy shots, in the process imposing a false shape on the material, just so he can produce the desired effect in the viewer.
Haha Miss Dhoni:
The reality is that Deepika is the bigger star currently in both Tamasha & BM..
DP needs to be catered to (& kept happy) and for ranbir/ranveer: they shouldn’t mind selling their SOULS (& BODY) to her 🙂
As I mentioned, poor ranbir is having to totally SUBMIT to deepika and her demands & has to basically behave like a lump of meat.
Anyhow one has to make SACRIFICES for the career…
Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone’s steamy kiss from Tamasha axed!
November 9, 2015 Seema Sinha 32266 reads 25 comments
Former love-birds, Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone share a great chemistry on-screen and have a steamy lip-lock in their upcoming release, Tamasha. But now it is heard that the kissing sequence has been deleted from the film as the Censor Board found it too hot to handle.
According to reports, Imtiaz Ali’s movie has been certified with a U/A Certificate and has been issued five cuts. One of these cuts is a lingering kiss between Ranbir and Deepika. Sources in the Censor Board said that it is the lengthiest kiss — even longer and more passionate than the one that was seen between Aamir Khan and Karisma Kapoor in 1996 hit, Raja Hindustani. Reportedly, the remaining cuts in Tamasha have been made on the basis of dialogue. For instance, the term, ‘Apna Haath Jagannath’ and a character making a veiled reference to masturbation, has also been chopped.
Directed by Imtiaz Ali, Tamasha is all set to hit the screens on November 27.
@ranbir is having to totally SUBMIT to deepika and her demands & has to basically behave like a lump of meat” – ROFL ! pretty Orgiastic of Deepika if true !!!
@Reportedly, the remaining cuts in Tamasha have been made on the basis of dialogue. For instance, the term, ‘Apna Haath Jagannath’ and a character making a veiled reference to masturbation, has also been chopped”
‘Apna Haath Jagannath’- seriously Imtiaz ?? are you reminiscing your Hindu College / Human Digest days ?
This doesn’t seem like it has any hype at all-especially since its sandwiched in between PRDP and Dilwale/BM. I guess the real promotions will start once PRDP but besides a couple of songs, this movie is looking boring and very Been There Done That
who the heck is expecting tamasha to get great numbers?
not everything is done or made for the box office
if it was so, Imtiaz wont habe that ending (or treatment) as in Rockstar and wont have followed it up with Highway with Hooda when Ranbir was begging him to take him
If it was so, Bhansali would not have made Bajirao Mastani more than a decade after its shelving
he wont have chosen this release date (though i think he should move it to do justice to his own efforts & ‘passion’)
ps;; as for deepika, theres something personal in doing this film (and these deleted ‘explicit’ scenes)
Its just 1 week to go and I don’t see any buzz or interest about Tamasha. If I’m not busy, I’m planning to watch it 1st or 2nd day of its release. Don’t have much hopes and looks like this one’s a goner unless it has superlative content and springs a surprise hit.
Ranbir’s last few movies have taken a toll on the buzz of this movie. Imagine this one coming after YJHD and even with the same promos, the movie will be ultra hot. This is now a true test of Ranbir’s star power. This would have opened 15 cr + when RK was hot, now am not so sure. Imtiaz though is yet to make a bad movie…There is always something interesting in his movies so I think movie might still be decent…A true test of star power is always after a couple of flops….The khans have done it before – SRK opened Don 2 pretty well after the debacle of Ra-1 and more so after the negative press he got, Salman has come through his bad phase…Hritik struggled a bit on this count (ZNMD was a poor opener which came in his bad phase), interesting to see what RK comes up with..
