  1. SRK has a winner here.

    Looks refreshing and SRK for change is having fun.

    If I’m SRK, I would sign Anand Rai for another film.

      Absolutely.

      On the trailer, i did have some reservation ealrier, but after watching it 2-3 times, it worked on me. There are lots more the film has to offer if we go by the last 3 seconds.

      I am glad SRK is retaining his touch as well as exploring few new territories. The trailer shows his stardom as well as a quest to do something different.

    This could become SRK’s biggest net grosser even with Simba coming in a week later. Def. seems interesting with a story and not a VFX gimmick like Fan.

  3. I am reminded of Stephen Hawking with cerebral palsy who was also a scientist who was also wheelchair bound and Anuskha’s character has some shades of him. Just the way Rani mukherjee did the female version of tourette syndrome teacher in Hichki.

    • Hawking had ALS not palsy. CP is caused due to birth injuries.

      Like

      • My mistake. Hawking had a rare early-onset slow-progressing form of motor neurone disease (also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, “ALS”, or Lou Gehrig’s disease), that gradually paralysed him over the decades.[21]

        Hawking had experienced increasing clumsiness during his final year at Oxford, including a fall on some stairs and difficulties when rowing.[253][254] The problems worsened, and his speech became slightly slurred and his family noticed the changes when he returned home for Christmas, and medical investigations were begun.[255][256] The diagnosis of motor neurone disease came when Hawking was 21, in 1963. wiki.

        The brain damage usually occurs before birth, but it can also happen during birth or the first years of life. In most cases, the exact cause of CP isn’t known. Some of the possible causes include:

  5. tad underwhelming! what was all the fuss about using superlatives?

    Like

    • SRK’s trailers often get overrated. By the fans certainly (can’t think of the last trailer that the fans did not like!) but even sometimes by others (they set the bar so low that anything that doesn’t seem ‘awful’ looks good). Now arguing for the film’s commercial prospects is a different matter but calling this trailer good or interesting simply mystifies me. I didn’t go crazy over the 2.0 or Thugs theatrical trailer either but at least the former has a history (a previous film that I like a lot so I’m willing to give this a chance), the latter still has the right elements in place in every other sense. Some of the trailers might be underwhelming but they’re not ‘bad’ by any stretch. For Zero I’d say the opposite, it’s not underwhelming actually, it’s just bargain basement entertainment (let’s be honest). It’s like MHN is a normal film whether one likes it or not, RNBDJ however is just plain ‘bad’ but that badness had many takers.

      And yeah waiting for Bob Cristo to appreciate it!

      • The SRK trailers and films over the last several years are interesting only inasmuch as they seem to (unwittingly?) invite psychological speculation about the man, rather than what they say about the film itself. Thus RNBDJ was interesting because of the mind-boggling levels of narcissism involved (if you cheat on SRK as husband, the only available option is SRK!); Fan was interesting because of a similar doubling, presenting SRK not just as an object of obsession, but also… by himself! Don testified to his obsession with Bachchan’s shadow (specifically, the idea of being the greatest ever), but with a strange (and utterly absurd) twist (absurd because it negates the logic of the Don) that is only explicable when viewed through the lens of the lead star’s vanity (the preening gangster is always the center of focus, and cannot be replicated or displaced by any mere “Vijay”). Don 2 itself is a vanity project, surely one of world cinema’s rare examples of an under-performing film getting a sequel. With Zero, the dwarf makes a certain sense, given the reality of SRK’s diminished stature in the industry vis-a-vis the likes of Salman or Aamir. By owning the status of Pygmy, he might break free…

          • Don had competition so it was sort of ok, doubt it did 50 even then though, I don’t really see the math on his beyond 42 or so, maybe slightly more. But more than the number you don’t do this sort of big splashy project just to be ok. I do agree that the sequel fared worse all things considered. On Houseful that’s a whole different joke altogether!

  6. This is certainly not my kind of trailer! But it does look like the RNBDJ kind of deal. A film which has a certain ‘badness’ to it and appeals because of it, not despite it. As for SRK ‘hamming’ (responding to Krrish here) I think we must simply accept that he’s that sort of actor. He’s been that way just about forever with rare exceptions. The SFX are good here though SRK should have probably done this sort of part 10 years ago if not more than this. Kamal was a much younger guy when he did his version (and of course that was a double role so we got the ‘normal’ Kamal as well). SRK’s face looks a bit much here on ‘that’ body. And to expand on the ‘badness’ remark you make the film a bit of a freak show in unembarrassed fashion. In other words rather than make a normal film with a ‘dwarf’ you have everything here on the same plain. From Anushka’s character to the kind of comedy available here and so on. Anand Rai as a commercial matter has the right instincts here tonally. Couple that with his stronger script sense and it’s easy to imagine this doing well. How well remains to be seen. But he might have cleared the ‘dwarf’ hurdle with this trailer. So if you think the film is a bit of a freak show as I do that’s precisely the point of the trailer! I otherwise can’t spot anything remotely appealing about it. And again this will be in the RNBDJ category for me.

    By the way note how in a way this ‘dwarf’ part allows SRK to do a bit of Robot-like Rajni. Much as the latter isn’t physically capable of all his former stunts or moves or what have you (I made this point in my longer piece on the film) and wouldn’t seem plausible even if he tried, the ‘robot’ allows him to bridge this gap. Similarly SRK also looks rather haggard in most such outings these days, has for a while. But here he has this very sprightly, youthful body, allowing him to do what would otherwise be again less plausible and somewhat harder. So in this sense it’s commercially a shrewd wager.

    • “Robot-like Rajni”, i agree with. same as the TOH role allows bachchan to do 360 flip in air, jump one ship to another at age over 75.

      I think this trailer is much more polished and better than TOH trailer.

      Like

      • But Bachchan precisely isn’t doing the Robot-like thing. He’s shown for a tough, old warrior still capable of this stuff! There’s a long standing tradition here including in many of the epic literatures of the world. the legendary warrior Rustom is like this even when he’s rather old. He’s a match for his great warrior son even at his age. That’s not what Rajni does in Robot. What would be comparable is if Bachchan did his old stunts or dances today in exactly the same ways with SFX. But he’s not doing this (the vashmalle song is much slower, he obviously doesn’t have his older energy, incidentally Rajni also doesn’t do this sort of thing outside of Robot). Those flips are presumably not possible even for younger actors as a matter of simple physics! That’s not what I’m arguing about. As for this trailer being more polished it’s somewhat amazing you can say this. I agree the ships SFX weren’t great and here there is no issue with the dwarf SFX. But it wasn’t like the 2.0 deal either (though even here every single person who saw it on 3D said it was fine). The idea that this Zero trailer is otherwise more polished than Thugs beggars belief. And I’ve hardly been the most generous on the Thugs trailers as all my comments show (even commented on Katrina with respect to #metoo, when this is otherwise par for the course for every actress in every other film). As a SRK fan I can completely understand if one is waiting for a big one from SRK. this might be it. But calling the trailer great is something else altogether.

        By the way I’ve been arguing against RDB so much just recently. So it’s not as if I have a problem arguing against films even with actors I like and even when the films have otherwise been universally acclaimed. Also using the Bachchan example every time I criticize SRK is also a bit silly. I have several volumes worth of stuff criticizing him on his very blog! Including even for some of his peak 80s stuff.

Or if they don’t they have the ‘hey they’re all as good or as bad’ logic. I just find it very hard to believe that if things were reversed, if Aamir were in Zero and SRK in TOH, that a single SRK fan would call this as good a trailer much less a better trailer, or even ‘refreshing’ or ‘interesting’ or good or whatever.

            On the rest yes no one has seen the final movie but the trailer tells us what it will be ‘like’. The question is whether it will be engaging enough for the audience given this premise and the tone of the film. But the film won’t be something completely different relative to the latter. And it is this that I am criticizing. Much as TOH might be better than the trailers, on par or worse, but it can’t be something ‘other’ than the trailers.

          • I didn’t mean bigger in any absolute sense. I wouldn’t say anything as crazy as this. RNDBJ was very far from Ghajini in terms of initial or final total but it trended quite well. In that case of course Ghajini too trended well. But many films that open big don’t have proportionately good trending. So I meant audience acceptance. At least as a possibility.

    • On SRK the astronaut is a step in the right direction . Of course he should wonder why Aamir let this one go! On the rest he does need a significant box office grosser of some kind . His last such film was CE. Reinvention too is always harder than it seems because most actors don’t really have enough script sense for it. But there’s also a deeper issue. Iconic stars have to somehow retain their base (those who are interested in the old image but this is a game of diminishing returns over time) and appeal to a newer audience (with newer genres the star suddenly becomes a lot more mortal, the base hadn’t really signed up for this and the newer audience is harsher ). You then need scripts that present the old in the guise of the new. So in zero the gimmick of a dwarf, the anushka gimmick, and once you’re past this you get the older underdog SRK as well as the romantic one . Rai has a fair chance if pulling this off. But reinvention has to be paradoxically attempted much earlier and not when the older star really needs it. Aamir did it as a much younger guy and was in any case moving in that direction even in the 90s in some ways. Partly because he didn’t want to be just the romantic hero. He compromised this more iconic appeal of his very early in the game. In a different sense Salman went with Dhawan once the love stories dried up, and eventually into B grade masala vas well. Even if his turnaround later was incredible he was sticking with a certain format or had been doing so for years . He had developed a bit of a base here. For SRK it’s aleaus been a transactional thing. He’s done it from time to time but never stuck with it. He’s always had one foot in the blockbuster camp or always looking fir the big one. He’s done many many questionable films for this reason . But again he’s not had the script sense either. Given his capital as a star he’s made some very sorry decisions for a dozen years (most days ).

      • I just don’t think just a ‘blockbuster’ kind of deal with no prestige is going to move the needle for him at this point. Even if he gets another CE, so what? Another hit like Chak De would have been a more preferred option.

        The astronaut one might be good but agreed on your skepticism.

        Like

        • that’s fair Henry but there’s always enough pressure on a major star to deliver enough of a grosser. It doesn’t have to be the biggest one but it has to be serious enough. Now SRK admittedly sold himself as the biggest for so long that it was perhaps harder for him to downsize. I agree on CDI and even with reservations the astronaut film is the correct decision. But times have changed as well. A lot of different films with much smaller stars are doing fair bit, Aamir of course delivers the biggest grossers this way. So it’s hard for him to do a film where it’s prestige and where it’s also distinctive enough in terms of the gross. I agree that doing CE doesn’t change your career unless you can do it regularly and become Salman! But it’s hard to see what mix he could come up with that would be optimal for him at this point. Because even to do CDI or something regularly and make all of these films critical and commercial successes you’re already in Aamir terrain. And that is always improbable. Not just SRK, other stars too don’t have Aamir’s uncanny sense in this regard.

          • “but I don’t think Shahrukh even gave it a genuine shot.”

            That’s too much to say. I’ve mentioned it somewhere, In the last few movies of Srk were signed right after Chennai Express and in that phase. Fan, Dilwale, Raees, Dear Zindagi, JHMS and Zero were signed similar time. Srk has not signed a new movie from last 3+ years. I’ve been trying to see his
            what he’ll sign next from years. Finally looks like he signed Rakesh Mehra biopic still not officially announced by Srk.

            Out of all his bunch of movies, Srk still gave everything to Zero and I don’t think it’s half hearted effort. I think it’s one of his most worked movies ever in terms of money, time spent. Success or failure, I don’t agree that it’s not a genuine shot.

            Right after seeing results of HNY, Dilwale, Fan.. he’s yet to sign next movie so I don’t think all his best movies following were to reinvent his career. It was already in pipeline. I’m interested to see his next few movies from the new bunch starting with biopic.

          • Henry and I are talking about something else.. the commitment to reinvention has to be sustained and somewhat more sincere. There’s a difference between doing gimmicky stuff (which is what Zero is) and proper reinvention. I am sympathetic to the struggle involved in doing so successfully. But it’s not correct to say he’s been reinventing himself. It’s usually half a step forward and two steps back for him. There’s no overall plan. Also many of those films you mention are hardly anything extraordinary given what many actors and stars are in any case doing. Again if he wanted to have a CE-like career he should have stuck to this. Or the opposite. There is more than one path to reinvention. Just a general mix of things might otherwise be a good idea but then you need Aamir’s brain to make it work (though even here I’d argue that there are more thematic continuities Lagaan through Dangal than might seem apparent).

            I think you didn’t even read my comment or understand it. I agree with the reinvention part but if he has a slate of movies already signed up, he can’t reinvent in between that. Only ‘new’ movie he signed after any failures is – Saare Jahan se Accha’. With that and new movies he’ll sign will give him the chance of reinvention. Even Zero is part of old bunch of signed movies.

        • the one thing that’s simply beyond dispute is that SRK still, despite everything, has the most support in the media. Much as his online army is also the most reliable (pushing up even IMDB numbers!). And yes he gets more positivity in all the key moments more than anyone else, relative to the product he has. Based on all the responses over the years every film of his should have done an OSO. Either every film just has a great trailer despite being mediocre otherwise (hard to buy this looking at all his trailers) or else the negativity is not adequately covered/represented/expressed. And this is my argument with many on the blog also. It’s always a very low bar for people to come out and say a SRK movie looks good. Not everyone of course but most people. No other star gets so much benefit of the doubt. For Aamir for example it’s the opposite. The more he does good films the more people keep raising the bar for him. Similarly when he does films for blockbuster reasons people often attack these as the worst film ever made. Ironically (and contrary to what Z thinks) even the Aamir fans sometimes attack him for the latter.

He’s nothing special as a director but he could be better if he followed his Ranjhnaa impulses more. And Dhanush here was also an inspired choice.

But only because bollywood and YRF is not willing to take even a minor risk like finding a new, younger femme-fatale. Anushka on the other hand, for me, is real actress and not an item number queen like Kaif.

          • I find it amusingly narcissistic when men accuse women of being envious of glamorous, sexy female celebrities. What exactly is there to be jealous or insecure about? Do you think Katrina is interested in any of the men in our lives? Or that she’s going to abandon her famous superstar boyfriends and come after you to make the women in your life jealous? Do you get jealous when you see Hrithik Roshan/ John Abraham/ Ryan Gosling/ Chris Hemsworth onscreen? Does any man who points out a studly celebrity’s wooden acting or steroid use do so only out of envy? Get a grip on reality please. And it’s very tasteless and tacky to bring #MeToo into the picture here.

          • A person who does not like a star, male or female may have many reasons behind it.
            Maybe a fan of a rival star.
            Maybe because of this star getting too many important films.
            Due to political reasons.
            Due to genuine dislike.
            As for botox, every star tries to look younger because their livelihood depends on it. They color their grey strands, wear wigs, apply loads of makeup, lip and nose jobs and the works. Katrina’s botox does not prevent her from getting roles and whistles.
            Only someone like Naseer and his wife have the confidence to look natural. And also Waheeda Rehman.
            Rajni does not mind looking balding and oldish in his interviews and public appearances. Only for films like 2.0 or Robot, he becomes another plastic doll.

    I do find it weird that dwarf actors don’t get cast in any film and then crores are spent on a film to decrease SRK’s height. Or when able actors play paraplegic characters. It’s like blatant award-baiting because the acting effort part of it becomes very visible.

  20. Rai’s films have captured humorous slice of life and ethos of small town de glamorized India. Lower middle class families, small town by-lanes, houses, etc coupled with rustic lingo wisecracks being effortlessly spouted by his characters populate his vision; and are what have made his movies successes.
    This movie on the other hand seems much more glitzy, and does not seem to have any of the above mentioned settings. So that itself is a departure from Rai’s signature.
    And SRK here seems to have taken a tad too many dopamine enhancers. His brief here was to portray a “Happy Dwarf”, but he seems to have gone OTT in doing so. However, this IS his signature, so viewers just would need to pucker up and live with a VFX shortened SRK in all his hamminess; while dealing with an Anushka trying hard to be a female Hawkings; and a Kat being just herself.
    Considering its from Rai, the film definitely mustve had a great script to begin with, so it may work as long as it has not been overly tampered with by an indulgent SRK, who is desperately trying to hit one out of the ballpark.

Its one thing to present a happy face when confronted with a God given misery of stunted growth; and quite another to be continuously deliriously obnoxiously happy on the screen; constantly showcasing this ‘VFX dwarfiness’ to the audience!
      The one reason Dinklage stands out in GOT is due to his real personal angst that he brilliantly extracts to reflect biting sarcasm, manipulation, rage, grief, etc.

  24. I finally caught up with this trailer — it’s actually quite solid, although this film is not likely to be my kind of film at all (and it seems highly unlikely this film will be as compelling as Tanu Weds Manu or Raanjhana, flawed though those films themselves were). I like Anand Rai’s touch for the Indian urban milieus, but it’s a pity the film seems to move New York-wards in the best (i.e. the worst) SRK traditions. And somehow SRK’s performance seems even harder to take as a dwarf than it is when he is “regular-sized”.

  31. I have stayed away from commenting on this trailer, lest it be mistaken for a sour grape or a troll!! My reactions have nothing to do with the moolah this film generates. I am but, reacting.

    But here I go. I absolutely loved the initial posters: Thought they were fantastic in generating a vibe and an invitation. But once the trailer was released, terribly disappointed with SRK indulging in his usual mannerisms, albeit with a tired face. As someone commented, this should have happened 10-15 years back. In the trailer, he fools himself, and the public, by saying he is 36 or 38, but his +50 shows.

    Next, Aanand Rai. Rai is a peculiar director, in the sense that he has a fantastic grip on the grammar of scripting and directing Hindi films when it comes to down-to-earth themes but — but for lack of a better-term, is very limited in scope. And that’s where the clash lies with this film. I don’t know what he’s attempting. SRK, with all the dwarfiness, is still SRK shrunk! While I was gung-ho with the posters, I was disappointed with the trailer.

    Continuing with the thought above, what got my goat was Anushka’s Hawking-esqe characterization. Anand Rai, least of all, should never be allowed to tackle characters that are considered differently-abled. Example: Consider how he treated Swara’s character in RAANJHANA: He literally transposed the loose ponnu concept from Tamil films onto the Varanasi belt! The way Dhanush’s character beats, pulls her hair, and bad-mouths her is shocking, to say the least! In essence, what I mean to say is that I am truly skeptical of him treating Anushka’s character with some sort of dignity. It would, as per the trailer, sound and look gimmicky. I would love to proven wrong.

Srk actually worked more on CE and it had lot of real SRK moments and humor and it was shot the longest Rohit Shetty movie whereas Dilwale was all Shetty and Srk gave free hand and he let him make in the mould of Golmaal 3 but Rohit messed up after signing Kajol. There’s hardly any Srk humor and style in Dilwale except forced romantic track with Kajol. Nothing in bearded role. Srk was shooting 3 movies at same time and hardly shot for 4 months in 1 schedule for Diwale.

            Rohit confessed, “Dilwale is the only film I have made without conviction, yet. I got intimidated by the need to cater to Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol’s massive fan following. The initial film was to be a tri-hero project about three brothers and Kajol’s track was to be of a mere four to five scenes. This change was also by my own willful voluntariness. We went wrong with it, in the process.

  36. For folks commenting about Srk’s mannerisms and love story in Zero, I want to add just few comments. SRK will not get a huge grosser without his trademarks mannerism and his strong point(especially at this point). I mean, expecting Srk’s film to do huge business by not using his USP and alienating this regular audience to please non-Srk fans is too much utopian expectations. He has done too many recent films not on his strong domain and for once SRK is trying use his strong USP in a movie, people are crying over it. Even for Chennai Express, it was another love story but SRK’s style combined with Rohit Shetty’s style gave it fresh look and completely away from Johar world. Similarly, earth feel of Anand Rai and dialogues will be a new experience to watch on screen.

    I will not say that Srk will not huge grosser outside of romantic genre. It can happen but right now the demand of the time asks for a huge grosser in regular Srk movie. This movie was written before even Srk came on board and Anand Rai offered the role to Salman Khan but he was not game to try this dwarf role. I’ve seen families(esp women) reacting so positively to this trailer which they haven’t in long time for a SRK movie for simple reason that he’s not done movies of that kind).

    Comparing Race 3 vs TOH vs Zero, this is where the rankings stand for me:

    Pre-trailer hype: TOH, Race 3, Zero
    Trailer response: Zero, TOH, Race 3
    Music response: Zero, Race 3, TOH
    Release Date: TOH, Race 3, Zero (bc of clash)
    Cast Hype: TOH, Zero, Race 3

    I would go out and say if this is accepted, it’ll have a 30-35 CR opening, 175 crore first week, and 250 crore final with the Simmba clash. Otherwise, if it’s bad, a <30 crore opening, and after seeing TOH, I won't even try to predict a weekend/week/lifetime gross for a rejected film- that too with a clash.

    The overall pre-release hype of both TOH and Race 3 was already at best lukewarm, so when the films came out and were below par, it was easy for them to get destroyed. On the other hand, the general hype around Zero so far seems pretty positive, so it seems like it'll get at least a couple of days to run. Simmba is a remake of Temper which I thought was at best a 2.5/5 movie, even by NTR standards. I trust Rohit Shetty to deliver, but Singam (Tamil) was a much bigger hit, and more iconic than Temper as far as I remember. I think this could end like the JTHJ – SOS clash.

It should have been along t he lines of PoC all the way, as light hearted masala comedy without such archaic, boring and seriously stressful subject of british as enemy, with a much young-talented actor paired with Amitabh. Zero might be a CGI marvel but the story (of midget ) doesn’t interest me. And on the note of ageism, well. ahem. Hindi cinema seriously needs new young, fresh faced, talented heros.

Somehow to make them central characters for 3+ hours, in a movie this physical and watch the old people doing sword fighting in their graves is so boring. and unbelievable even though that base and that voice is to die for , effort of liftingg that heavy sword is gonna put you in hospital. Bigb looks like Geoffrey Rush with nose falling off and Aamir looks like garibo kaa Johnny Depp. And botox queen looks like the plastic might melt any minute in that dance workout routine that she already did and we have already seen before it in dhoom and chikni chameli. So much glitter and shiney halloween stuff on her face that her makeup person should be fired. Meh. Will pass this one. Ok now I need a shield for all the angry arrows that come my way from AK and bigb fans. P.S. I am a fan too but of their older works.’

      ‘AK is also a serial abuser though he may see himself as great romantic person. What I see is , history of ongoing abuse of power and manipulation, what with his manifold affairs till date (latest conquest in ToH) and out of wedlock baby even! Now LS will take panga with me. But they all are guilty. There may be consensual relationships with a shakti kapoor like directness but when you are all mighty and powerful, the lines of propriety are blurred. To me it still is abuse of power, where it is mostly lose-lose situation for the wormen in long run!’

      ‘gropes and kisses young actresses, A-lister: Has to be Aamir Khan. Every single film of his has to have a kiss!’

      The subtle difference inferred was hardly a single Aamir fan cried foul play with those comments even though Swati was naming LS or Sanjana. Yet here you 2 are doing a dirty, spiteful job without reading previous comments. You take negativity on SRK to heart too much and it clouds your overall judgment.

      This is not trolling. What you both are – is you’re too far up SRK’s behind to know right from wrong.

      The claim by Z that Swati is commenting too much and that implies some kind of bias. Look in the mirror dude, since last few days your own posts are just to point out TOH failure and you NEVER did this for any other film previously. It’s obvious bias.

      I figured Master would have some sense not to get involved here, just by reading properly.

        ‘Remember I was the first one to predict the outcome of the movie on this blog. I am correct…looks like, so far, reading the reviews and such!’

        ‘Don’t hate me too much…I think ToH has flop written all over it. It might just barely recover cost. Now let me runnnnn…’

        ‘Agree with you totally. A good love story and a good villain or a substantial conflict, always makes a good masala. If it was made on the lines of PoC, then the central character JohnnyDepp/Aamir need to be interesting enough to hold the interest for entire 3 hour period. We loved Johnny’s antics in PoC and therefore it went into part 2 and 3. His character was superbly fleshed out. On the other hand, I wouldn’t want to watch Aamir’s antics for 3 hours, at 30-35 maybe, at 50 no no. Acting wise I don’t think they are at the par. The trailer itself was off puting in that aspect.’

        Anyway if this is Aamir ‘love’, I wait for Swati to be negative on him. So again chill the f out.

          • Hardly bad as you predicted the future. I hope for your sake and the health of SRK rabid fans that you are wrong on Zero. Unfortunately people do not know what a troll is. Any negative comment on SRK is being misconstrued as trolling.
            I guess I did use the word initially but haven’t since as the SRK trolls have disappeared. What we are left with is selective bias SRK fans – even more smarter than the trolls. They will defend indefinitely.

        trolling word was invented by aamir fans after toh debacle, not by srk or any other actor fans.

        Did I actually claim this?

        “since last few days your own posts are just to point out TOH failure and you NEVER did this for any other film previously. It’s obvious bias.”
        I guess you missed my other posts.

        You’re in no position to judge anything since your judgements are pretty cloudy itslef, and here you are trying to tell others that their judgements are clouded, funny, pretty funny.

    Thanks Jayshah but too much anger/hatred sparking out from the comments. Couldn’t read them after a point. Looks like some ppl just come to blogs to vent out their frustrations in daily lives! Just come online and trash anything and everything and go back home.

    • I guess that’s the point that Swati didn’t reserve such comments just for SRK which is the insinuation here. There is no love for Aamir – the comments are consistent.

      But thanks for apologising to Swati.

    • I love Aamir’s charity work for Paani foundation. He took lot of time while shooting for ToH and went to remote villages on a regular basis. He even dug ditches in heat to support them when no one in village came forward. I cannot think of a single BW actor who put his physical might after someone or a cause the way he has. Blood sweat and tears. On SRK, of all three khans, only he has theater background. That is one positive thing about him. On Salman…he is bhai. So always will remain bhai, the way Rajni is in south, Thalaiva.
      Bus happy now? I praised all three Khans. Now, I will be very critical from time to time of all three, when it comes to their movie choices and wasting my 3 hours by producing terrible product. That doesn’t convert me into a hater or troll. I am critical of their work but not of them per se. Though from time to time, I can take pot shot, fair or unfair, at their personal lives too because hey they are in public domain and if you say something like I want to raise azad abroad because india is intolerant or some such B.S., then yes, I will also express my anger. That is not troll but my right!

        He’s just himself and the VFX is to make him shorter. Everything is still 100% SRK.

  55. Just watched both the songs for the first time .
    SRK is really annoying when he speaks right before both the songs, trying to do the Dilli/ Merrut accent , he is reminding me of HR in MPKDH( too much energy )
    Mere Naam is really melodious and reminds me of Sairat/ Dhadak music ( no surprise since Ajay-Atul)
    The other songs, frankly I could not understand the lyrics..dobara sunna padega.
    This one seems to be for the die hard SRK fans, I know both my daughters will go the first day.

  58. Anyway these musicians are overrated. TOH and Zero being big films, the music should be unanimously a winner. This patchy some like it, some don’t, some love it, some hate it pretty much personifies how bad BIG FILM music is.

    Thankfully we can listen to Madhuri and Sridevi songs this week to catch the drift.

    • But I wouldn’t put TOH and Zero songs in same category. So far, the 3 songs of zero are head and shoulder above TOH songs.

      And don’t forget the 4th and best songs of Zero sung by Rafi 🙂

      • They might be better but there was a time when consensus was unanimous for big film songs. Here, visiting the same places for how much Zero songs are liked compared to ToH is like potatoes or potatos. First song is easily the best from Zero. The 2nd one is meh. This one is in Suraiyya range.

        • The last complete album from SRK, Salman or Aamir film for a big film that was a strong album probably was Dabangg. At least Salman generally has one big song that always works (at least for his fans). But Dabangg had 3-4 songs.

          Imagine albums like k3g, kkhh, rh or hahk where every song has recall value. The music nowadays is not at this level for these actors’ films.

          • Yes, i’ve said that many time. the songs now don’t have life span of more than how long the movie lasts in theatre, which is about 2 to 6 weeks. Then it’s forgotten. No wonder they have to keep adding an old song in the film either via direct lift, remix or in background.

    Bollywood Works in bhedchal. Ajay-Atul have good music in Sairat. In hindi neither Dhadak nor ToH and Zero has worthwhile music. Pritam and Vishal-Shekhar are anyday better for these big films.
