  1. with that look, i am surprised any parent would allow their kids to be with hrithik leave aside train months for iit entrance. he looks more like a terrorist or a paedophile …

          Your excuse of ‘liberalism’ is sadly no more than plain laziness when it comes to moderation/review of content. And no amount of essays or links you provide can change that.

    HR is definitely much better than lot of actors of his generation – can still pull-off a solo-hero BO hit any day. He has 3 hundred crores BO projects in hand now – Super30, Krish4 and YRF’s next with Tiger – good and sensible choices.

    Like

    • His BO draw has never been in question, but he has one of the worst instances of the sort of self-loathing that characterizes so many (in the culture at large, but especially in B’wood): obsessed with H’woody genres, to the point where he and his dad seemed to think that even a super-hero film must be spoken about as if it were some kind of masterpiece; and completely unable to think outside of that sort of derivative mindset (Kites?! Really?!). He’s made such terrible choices that he has become irrelevant to any kind of box-office race, but neither has he left any memorable body of work. Part of the issue is that he emerged as a “perfect product”, and had nowhere to go/grow from there: i.e. everything that was excellent in Kaho Na Pyar Hai has never been bettered by him in nearly two decades (I remember predicting then that he would never be better than in that film; time has borne that one out), and if anything, when he tries “different” roles he seems weirder and weirder. I really can’t think of a greater squandering of box office strength in recent decades — he’s probably single-handedly responsible for extending the careers of the generation of stars who preceded him, each of whom should be buying him birthday drinks every year.

        • Delusion is one of the national pastimes. One sees it in many walks of life — but even by those standards the Roshans were in a class by themselves (I remember Rakesh Roshan saying before Krrish’s release that the SFX was on par with Hollywood — this in an era when even a Bhojpuri audience had seen H’wood superhero flicks like Spider-Man!); I mean even cretinous imbecility has to have some limit. And then I remember some of the POST-release film reviews, that not only said pretty much the same thing, but also praised the acting to the skies etc. Hearkens back to Satyam’s comment the other day about the absence of a cinematic culture — I like superhero films as much as the next person (although H’wood’s lazy overdose of this genre is sickening, and is pretty much destroying popular American cinema), but only our reviewers seem to think that “Days of Heaven” and “Dr. Strange” merit the same critical apparatus…

          • Its not just Krrish, Roshans said the same thing during KMG release too regarding Spielberg-ish vfx and superlative acting! Its a pattern they keep repeating. On top of that, all the fraud numbers they keep reporting for every release. Its sickening and disgusting – not only for the audience but also within the industry itself.

            Anyways, I will anyday take Tiger over anything hritik or his dad has ever done in their sad lives.

      • I think he was quite good in the first half of ZNMD. The smugness, the arrogance that was part of his character worked as a great contrast to his otherwise (off-screen & on-screen) clean image. It reminded me of Tom Cruise in Magnolia.

        Of course, since it was a Hindi film, the character had to undergo a change of heart. And ruin everything that was interesting about the character.

        But for that brief period, he displayed some nice acting chops.

  8. For Q – why so harsh on HR? it is his dad who has been blowing all the trumpets….what he cud not do as an actor, he is imagining that HR has and will do it – to be fair to HR, he still has tremendous fan-base and has done reasonably well compared to Abhi, Vivek and all….and yeah! he is not a great actor – so what? ppl love him – Jeetendra, Shashi Kapoor, Rajendra Kumar did some amazing films but masses rejected them in those and then they switched to masala films – does any one remember many of thos craps – still they did hundreds of those films and gave BO hits – so look at HR with those glasses and despite his ill-health, stuttering problems, broken marriage and all those obstacles – man has come out strong and delivered good films – Guzaarish may not have worked at the BO but HR did his job very well and so did Aish! I personally like him and abhi at par and wanted abhi to take his acting career more seriously – but then….well happy for HR and not really happy for abhi for throwing away those opportunities which could have made him a bigger star than HR. But we must accept the fact that as of today – HR can still deliver solo-hero-hits.

    • I never denied that last bit— indeed that theme, namely that HR has squandered BO success, runs throughout my comment — given where he was a few years after Kaho Na Pyaar Hai, he has wasted a position of strength.

        that is also true – but what is largely unknown to the world is his various illnesses and the surgeries etc. he has been going thru – life has not exactly been a bed of roses for that man – but one generally overlooks these things…..I find him an honest actor despite all his flaws and limitations and very hard working too – he had maintained that physique which makes him a commercially acceptable solo hero. He has managed to step out of his dad’s shadow no. of times as well. There lies his strength.

      i am in for this film – will watch it in theater – not expecting a masterpiece here. But can vouch for this that this will be a sleeper hit for HR – 150 is on board. Let us c how he has worked on acting part becoz this is i guess very few film (the only one after Guzaarish i guess) where he has stepped out of his “hero with chisseled physique” kind of image. That means the focus will be more on his acting skills….tough test!

  13. I have a problem with the tone – Ab Raja ka beta Raja nahin banega.
    This is not what Super 30 and Anand Kumar aims for. The current tagline is negative and provoking.

    The tone / tag line should be – Ab Gareeb ka beta bhi Raja banega. This is what Super 30 stands for. Anand Kumar’s main job in Super 30 batch is to trigger confidence among the kids from weaker and poor section that they are as good as kids from affluent/upper class society. Once the confidence is evoked, his job becomes easier as the kids are hard working. This is a positive vibe. Looks like the movie lacks this soul.

    • Re: “The tone / tag line should be – Ab Gareeb ka beta bhi Raja banega.”

      Great point — I too was struck by that tag-line — it seemed a bit “off” — but you’ve put your finger on how they could have changed it. And to be clear i love the second part of it — “ab raja wahi banega jo haqdaar hoga” — but the first one seemed off. But perhaps it will fit with the tone of the movie, too early to say — i.e. I had assumed this would be a feel-good H’woody kinda film, but perhaps it is an angrier, more raw affair…

  14. I’m with Qalander on Hrithik. He’s never been as good as a star as he was in his debut KNPH. He’s probably had better acting performances but if someone asked me what’s all the fuss about on Hrithik, KNPH is where I’d point them too – it gives you the optimal aspects of his stardom. Everything afterwards in the main has been anticlimactic, except 2006 when he could have peaked again but blew it in subsequent years by trying to ‘Aamirsize’ himself. Can’t blame him for being picky but with choices like Kites, Bang Bang – the Hollywood strategy was pointless. He could have done films like ETT, Bodyguard instead of Salman, a better option potentially. Or instead of Bhansali’s Guzarrish he could have played some of the roles Ranveer landed. Just poor choices. Can’t fault too much the bad early career choices – that can happen to anyone but when you get your head straight with D2 and Krrish you have to be put to the sword with many choices and gaps that followed.

    Health is an excuse as Marcus pointed out he has done roles that are physically demanding & he still dances. His personal life – well he’s probably partly to blame.

    • I agree completely with you and qalandar on this. But Saket is also right with the Tom Cruise reference. A certain kind of star can never just become the ‘actor’, irrespective of talents (and Hrithik isn’t Tom Cruise for me, even as an actor!), he needs to keep playing the star. Even the different film must then somehow harness the signature in some sense. ZNMD perhaps does well on this score. With some of these other choices you’ve mentioned (guzaarish etc) Hrithik tries to play just the actor. And that’s a problem! Now of course (and to repeat a point) even the greatest start-actors still have to be stars on screen, before they act or not. But at least with this group you can fashion parts that require fine performances. Since Hrithik isn’t capable of this such an effort completely fails with him. He cannot even do what Cruise did in Born on the 4th of July (and Cruise is hardly the highest bar in terms of pure performance). Ultimately hrithik’s real issue might be that he just didn’t seem vulnerable enough after KNPH. He got instant stardom and in a huge way and the sincere, somewhat earnest persona (the first guy in KNPH) was lost quickly.

      • To repeat myself, he is plain delusional. He got instant stardom and started hallucinating after KMG that he is a great actor. And his definition of great acting is his father’s acting in seventies films. And his papa’s definition of acting is hrithik in kmg or krrish. This baap-beta jodi are made for each other with all their silliness.

        A star who is a competent actor can explore non-commercial terrain now and then, without making a fool of himself. Not so with a poor actor like hritik. Cruise is quite competent, hritik is far from it. No comparison there.

    he has equal no. of flops also but what is imp. is that when his films work at the BO, they are clean hits. So paying public has not yet completely rejected him like they have done with Abhi, Vivek and other stars of his generation. Fiza, Guzaarish remain good performance based films.

    and again, with 3 safe projects in hand, HR is here to stay for another 10 years atleast.

    • no Sanju, Manoj’s all outings as solo hero in last 3-4 years have been BO disasters. Aamir will take long to like any script – so this story needed a saleable star for all the commercial and non-commercial purposes. HR fits the bill here. Also I think they are covering 2 decades of his life – so it has a good scope as an actor here. Madhavan also hasn’t delivered any solo hits (all his hindi outings were major disasters – only he has worked with multi-hero films like 3i, RDB). Akki is over-doing all such things so audience need a diff. star – I back this choice. For a change, they could have considered Abhi also but then again BO wise it wud be a rather unsafe bet.

  18. HR looks angry and the color combination makes it look like he is in Agneepath 2. And whether they have played Holi and gulal in the second poster? Why the student faces look like that?

    The movie does have potential. There is great story to tell. All depends on how Vikas Bahl and HR have pulled the movie.
