    • Bharat seems to be more like Tubelight/Bajrangi genre. These remakes of korean/hollywood classics could be very risky.

      Salman and Ali Abbas has an eye for good films…more so the latter. So fingers crossed. Looks like another big budget festival release.

  2. Success of Bharat is as important for Forrest Gump as the Success of Sultan was for Dangal.
    Sultan had really set it up for Dangal in terms of ambience and acceptability.

    I hope the film is emotionally stronger than the trailer and the trajectory / journey is authentic / conclusive. Its the director Ali Abbas who is key here rather than a Salman. Hope Abbas has stuck to his own belief which he relayed via tweet – “ The most important thing to make a film is the REASON “ why you want to tell this story ?” .

    First time a trailer of Salman is not connecting with me at few levels. Will have to wait for content to step out with my time and money. Going strictly by the promo, it’s time for Salman to stop rushing to deadlines / release zones and give the respect these epic require……lest he be relegated to an Akki like zone with not much standing out…..

  4. This is a very good trailor. Quite rousing too as the music in the background works nicely. Never been a fan of Salman as such but have to say this is a wonderfully cut trailor

    May be I am over estimating a Hindi movie…… the genre here is something Hollywood has mastered so many times….but not much seen in Hindi cinema. Lagaan was the closet we got there….have not seen 1942 Love Story and Gadar never focused on the subtlety.
    Expected a much solid footing and wish the movie was shot with a different filter to set the required mood of the film. Normally tone of the movie is set at the time of post production and these effects are done at the post production than at the time of shooting……so keeping fingers crossed!

    Weird trailer. Salman and his dialogue delivery and Katrina are best suited for a senseless masala potboiler. It’s like merging two worlds together, but the result is decidedly bizarre

    • Actually Salman and Katrina belong to a different age in cinema — the silent film era. Both good looking people who suck at delivering dialogues.

      Although age is fast catching up with both, they would have been great stars when there was no sound in cinema.

      At this point in time they are just dinosaurs waiting to be forgotten in a couple of decades time.

      • And one has to feel for Ali Abbas Zafar. His talent for remodelling masala cinema deserves far better star-actors.

        At the moment he is stuck with possibly the worst star-actor pair in the history of Bollywood. In terms of acting talent, that is.

    Key is to keep it short and crisp in the intermediate sections once the #WhistlePodu preliminaries are done away with. Zafar/ Salman combo is skilled at cracking the beginning / end and the 2nd half of the trailer gives it the right patriotic feel with a crowning ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ at the end.Their last outing TZH was an average fare but Ali threw few sparks in the middle to keep the interest and prevent the tempo from sliding. The movie ended on a high note to make it an enriching experience overall but that was no classic.

    Zafar the director gives me hope because Tera Noor song / sequence is one of the finest moments in a Hindi actioner and took everyone by surprise and got me to sit thru the rest of the movie……..Kat did very well in Zero and even in TZH she was better projected as a lead heroine in an action film

  11. Very busy trailer. I haven’t seen TZH or Sultan so no idea if the director is any good, hopefully distributors don’t weep like at 2mins20secs.

    But Bharat is looking good, I like Salman’s various looks and Katrina’s hairstyle.

    • Ali Abbas Zafar is obsessed with two of the greatest masala films ever made — Kaala Pathar & Sholay

      The coal mine scenes (as well as the scenes on the ship) are a tribute to Kaala Pathar, and the train sequences pay homage to Sholay.

      There are plenty of such references in Gunday — mostly these two films plus other Bachchan classics like Muqaddar Ka Sikander and of course, Deewar.

      I’ve mentioned this before as well — he knows his masala cinema very well. It’s a pity his talent is wasted on undeserving star-actors.

  12. @Livewire,

    Salman’s attempt to do 2 movies per year + 1 TV + Bring Human causes show is very good. Anything less is pure waste of talent.

    Do you really like the phase where Aamir and Salman has got trapped into?
    Salman and Aamir has got trapped in the game of big openers and grossers. This limits their choices to do good cinemas. Akki like zone has proved to be more beneficial. Akki can do movies like Padman without worrying about the openings or final netts.

    SRK has been the smartest of the Khans. He has quickly understood the game. His last interview where he asks Bollywood to move out of the trap is well timed.

    A movie like Baahubali or URI became blockbusters despite non festive releases/ not having stars. The director and script are now the stars. Stars now have to adapt to the change and work without worrying about the openings which is quite select genre and big canvas dependent.

Interesting u never noticed this when I claim Akshay’s done few of the best films in commercial genre in the last 5 years including Special 26, Baby, Airlift, Jolly & now Kesari. However your claims of Aamir not being the megastar he is or that his filmography is more due to his scriptwriters & directors (doesn’t hold true for Neeraj Pandey reviving Akshay from his trash masala com image right?) Are baseless & laughworthy at best.

          • Here’s the truth:

            When Naveen was championing the cause of Manikarnika, he quoted numbers from Rangoli Chandel — Kangana’s sister — to prove the film was a hit! I can easily pull out that post from Naveen. Rangoli Chandel became Naveen’s box office source for Manikarnika!

            I repeatedly told him that I wasn’t against the film Kesari but only against BOI’s over-reporting. Guess what, when Kalank came out I am the only one on this forum (amongst a few trade people) who has again called out BOI for lying about the film’s first day numbers. I made a post — with numbers — to prove that Kalank could not have made more than Kesari on day 1. So much for hating the film or posting with an agenda!

            This person consistently calls Gold a HIT when even BOI, his own preferred box office site, calls it an average film at best.

            And he has the nerve to even question anyone else? I understand that we live in a post-truth world but this guy takes the biscuit, chips and sauce along with it.

      @Naveen

      SRK big ticket movie isn’t going to happen till he rebuilds his inning the way Akshay & Ajay have done to enjoy the latest bull run. He has to choose a movie with a 100-150cr grosser in mind and wait for a surprise for one of them to connect in a big way. Choosing an extravagant outing may assist him with the perception battle of staying in the limelight but failure in such an outing is likely to do more harm – just like what a Zero did.
      He should get on board with no frills mindset and just be himself on screen and leave the rest to the script / director. I thought Zero with small timer like Anand Rai would be that outing but turned out a bad watch. The twitter/ internet questioning in finding basic logic was very valid and this is something each actor needs to take seriously going forward.

      Ideally any Bollywood actor will envy the zone Akshay currently in and that includes an Aamir who is still scratching his head planning/ plotting and scheming his next move. Akki will hit big with HF 4 and Sooryvanshi and both are easily 200cr plus grosser and will keep moving aggressively just by sheer volume.

      Salman has to let go 3 months of TV (though it’s getting him big moolah at the moment) to get going with more volume. The masala slot is still wide open and barring Ranveer no one even attempting that zone among the newer lot. There are countless possibilities due to current unrest in the social / political atmosphere and frustrations are in the zone of late 70s and industry is ready for that new angry young man. Simbaa and now Sooryavanshi seem to be going in for that slot via cop drama but bollywood needs more southern remakes who seem to be always ahead of curve wrt to hindi cinema. Tiger Shroff showed sparks in Baaghi2 but kjo will possibly suck him out of that zone now and he will have to rebuild the way Varun has to do now.

        Salman is self effacing in terms of admitting his reach which is always a good thing going forward –

        Courtesy DNA interview:

        “……Once, you seemed the least celebrated of the three Khans — Aamir, Shah Rukh and you. Now, you’re the biggest. Have you ever given this a thought?

        Not really. By the grace of God, the films that I’m choosing have done well. But it is not as if Aamir or Shah Rukh are choosing bad or worse films. There are times when the movies I’ve chosen, to the best of my knowledge, haven’t worked. And then one film works and you’re back. SRK is a legend, as is Aamir. A bad movie here or there may happen, but they will always come back. Actually, tension toh mera hai. Aamir and SRK know their craft. I’ve heard people saying they’re not so sure about me (laughs)!
        Stop kidding, what are you tense about?
        My thing is that I’m surviving on mediocre talent and luck. Actually, I don’t know what I’m surviving on, but I’m surviving. Mere ups and downs toh hote rahenge. By the grace of God, hamari fan following itni tagdi hai. There’s also Akki (Akshay Kumar), Hrithik (Roshan) and Ajay (Devgn).

        Then, there are the new boys — Tiger (Shroff), Ranveer (Singh) and Varun (Dhawan). Everyone is so good that all of us will also have to, you know, be on our toes.

        All the stalwarts have stuck with you. Sooraj Barjatya wants you, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Sajid Nadiadwala and Aditya Chopra have you. Surely, you must be doing something correct because these guys couldn’t have chosen wrong.

        Like I said, luck hai, destiny hai. Maybe there is something they see that I don’t. Anyway, what they look for in a hero is a mystery. The audience wants to spend money to see my films on screen, they watch them on satellite television also and they want to see me in my shows. I don’t know yeh kab tak chalega, but jab tak chal raha hai, my idea is to give my best, no matter what problems I go through, physically or mentally.

        Agar humko yeh formula pata hota, ki kya karne se kya chalega, then what should I say? We would be taking everything for granted. We thought that Tubelight (same combination of Kabir Khan and me) will be a beautiful film, after our much-appreciated superhit, Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015). But for an Eid release, the public wanted to see something happy. In Tubelight, they all cried. They were like, ‘What the hell! Eid kharaab kar diya!” (laughs). They went into depression. Today, when the film comes on digital and satellite, people love it and wonder why it didn’t work. It did a business of over Rs 110 crores in the domestic market alone. So, even my ‘flops’ notch numbers. Bahuton ki filmein utni bhi nahin chali. So, I’m fortunate that itni badi hit film bhi flop maani jaati hai. I’m grateful for the blessings.

  13. Haven’t seen D/TZH, nor do I intend to..but Katrina gets the job done quite well there..as I said, haven’t watched the movie hence I might be missing the context or contest there in regard to Burqha-clad women stabbing man-kind..viewed as an independent song…doesn’t do much..but in the context of the proceedings, might make a lot of sense..hence I refrain..

    However, in a similar genre, with a wooden actor like Rampal and a competent actor like Shruti, this song takes the cake: Shot aesthetically, but painful to absorb visually and emotionally – in the context of the film, it’s the mental agony and hopelessness rather than the physical pain…

    Not to mention that the film was a nail-biting one; and I still don’t believe that it is by Nikhil Advani; the guy who made a crappy remake of ANAND…

    But to use Sultan to bring down Dangal or to say to SRK has smelt the coffee much berries others etc is definitely shows your single point agenda

    I have been watching Akshay’s movies in the cinemas from the 90s. Heck I even watched Chandni Chowk to China first day in the theatre and incurred the wrath of my husband!

    I have great respect for the way he keeps himself fit and am also of the view that he is the only one amongst the Khan’s, Devgan etc to play more rooted characters.

    Yes, Aamir has had a flop in TOH after perhaps Mela which is almost 20 years back- though looking at Kalank , one can still argue for Aamir’s starpower to have carried the movie past 130cr if I am not mistaken

    So please argue for Akshay by all means but not by bringing down others

        Ofcourse the final product can be chalk and cheese as we saw in Dangal which was far superior film.

        • Dangal and Sultan look different. One seems a serious film and other more in star mode. And wrestling themed films are not frequently released. So if 2 come in space of half a year it’s obvious they will hurt the latter more than former release.

          I don’t see this issue with Bharat and FG remake. Right now the former looks promising tbh, every chance Bharat might be Salman’s BB equivalent success, in today’s money if it hits bullseye it’s going to go past 400Cr IMO.

    EXCLUSIVE details on SALMAN KHAN and Katrina Kaif’s BHARAT: Ali Abbas Zafar talks about recreating the seven eras

    Produced by Atul Agnihotri, Nikhil Namit and Bhushan Kumar, the production design is by Rajnish Hedao, music given by Julius Packiam, cinematography by Marcin Laskawiec and costume and styling by Alvira Agnihotri and Ashley Rebello. The film’s highlight is the various eras with the story of Bharat’s journey running through them all. Bharat is an official adaptation of the South Korean movie Ode to My Father (Bharat).

    The research was another tough part. Ali says, “The most important thing when you direct a movie that is spanning almost 70 years is the research that you do in the film. And Bharat is not a period drama but is based on contemporary history as it starts from 1947. The movie stems from the research material that was done over a year, from 1947-2010 and how the country evolved in those 70 years. Each department – from art, costume, music, production (including assistant directors), dialogue writing, specifically researched and contributed to what we were trying to recreate and set the look of the film. The research work came from all the documentation that was being done from libraries and museums to figure out how the Partition looked like. Obviously, because a lot of things which do not exist today we had to recreate it on set – the migration, Partition, the refugee camps, to how Delhi would look in 1947 and 2010.”

    While shifting from one era to another was a challenge, Ali admits, but made easier by the fact that everything was planned from earlier. “Today what is more important than your schedule is your pre-production. You create dockets of every era so you are very clear that when you are shooting you are only shooting that era, and carrying the storyboard of what is required of 1947, on the sets. Actually, when you shoot a film set in one time period, you only have one script and you are making one film but in Bharat, because you are traveling seven decades it was like making seven different films and every era was different – a certain palette, a certain shooting style, a certain costume style, a certain language, so we created those kinds of dockets so there was no confusion.”

    A. Avengers Endgame is probably a wrong comparison as that has a lot of business coming from South markets which Hindi films cant do. The target for Bharat will be to beat all the circuit figures outside South of Avengers Endgame especially Mumbai and Delhi / UP which should give it a number to challenge Thugs Of Hindostan.

    But it will be difficult to do as one the trailer had no action and no villain which probably takes out 10-20% of the potential opening of a Salman starrer and secondly it will be the start of the India cricket world cup campaign on the day of release which could take a little out of the film. The cricket should not affect considering Bharat is one of the biggest Hindi releases of the year and lets hope we are not talking about that on the day of release but there is a diminishing craze for Hindi films compared to the past and every things seems to affect. It could reach 5000 screens but that is not an issue really as seen with Avengers Endgame. Its about building capacity and Bharat may have the same capacity as Endgame on 2800 screens with 5000 screens. Due to the 3D rates and not being able to push the Average Ticket Price at big multiplexes to the same rate as Endgame.

      5/28/2019 ‘Poster Child Of Toxic Masculinity’: Sona Mohapatra Calls Salman Khan Out For Comments On Priyanka Chopra’s Bharat Exit

      New Delhi:

      Singer Sona Mohapatra, who has a reputation for being fiercely outspoken, launched a scathing attack on superstar Salman Khan for his comments on Priyanka Chopra after the
      actress’ exit from Bharat. “A showcase and poster child of toxic masculinity,” tweeted Ms Mohapatra just days after Salman Khan said Priyanka “chose” Nick Jonas over Bharat, a
      film he said many would consider “leaving their husbands” for. Slamming Salman for his recent comments at a promotional event for Bharat, Ms Mohapatra added: “Low brow dig at
      not only a woman who was not in the room but a disgusting disregard contempt for the woman and colleague sitting next to him in the same room.” Salman Khan attended the
      event with his Bharat co-star Katrina Kaif, who signed the film after Priyanka quit the project last year.

      In her tweets, Ms Mohapatra also claimed that Priyanka Chopra is being trolled for her agegap with husband Nick Jonas over the singer’s tweets on Salman Khan: “They meme her
      10 year age gap with her husband but conveniently forget that their idol is close to 20 years older than her. Grow up, you fools, I say to them.”

      A showcase & poster child of toxic masculinity. Low brow dig at
      not only a woman who was not in the room but a disgusting
      disregard & contempt for the woman & colleague sitting next to
      him in the same room. Unless we call out such serial bad
      behaviour, nothing changes, #India .

      Trying telling that to his fans who shadow his toxicity & are
      calling her derogatory names on my timeline. They meme her 10
      year age gap with her husband but conveniently forget that their
      idol is close to 20 years older than her. Grow up, you fools, I say
      to them

      At the previously mentioned event, the 53-year-old superstar said Priyanka was initially signed for the role because she was “keen” while “we all thought it was Katrina Kaif’s film.”

      Tweeting on Sunday in Priyanka’s defence, Ms Mohapatra had written: “Because Priyanka Chopra has better things to do in life, real men to hang out with and more importantly, girls
      to inspire with her journey.”

      This is not the first time Sona Mohapatra has criticised Salman Khan for his comments. In 2016, she was at the receiving end of brutal trolling for slamming Salman’s “like a raped
      woman” comment by followers of the superstar when she put out several stern tweets for the “Bhai Chamchas.”

      Meanwhile, Salman Khan’s remarks about Priyanka walking out of Bharat has continued for almost a year – from Priyanka’s exit for her then impending wedding to just few days left for
      Bharat to hit screens. In a recent interview with Mumbai Mirror, Salman said: “While many would give anything for the film or maybe even leaving their husband, Priyanka left the film,”
      while speaking to IANS, he said: “She spoke to me saying, ‘Nick has proposed to me and I want to get married, so there will be some date issues’. I said, ‘Sure, get married, we can
      adjust those two, three days. Then she said that she does not want to do the film.”

      Salman Khan has also said in several interviews that Priyanka had called his sister Arpita Khan Sharma asking for a role in Bharat.

      Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Bharat releases on June 5.
      to them.

      Replying to @sonamohapatra
      @priyankachopra has clearly moved on, got married/settled down. I think it’s about time this 53 year old baby also move on and find someone else to obsess about.

    • Salman need not have played it like this. His big ego is known now but this is not in good taste. After 2 flops like Tubelight and Race3, i am surprised he is still not humble.

  30. Salman’s comment on Priyanka is uncalled for. It gives opportunities to journalists Mohapatra to come up with their own minutes of fame through the backlash.

    It does seem that Salman is quite unhappy with Priyanka’s ‘unprofessionalism’. It is obvious that he feels that the marriage was merely used as an excuse by Priyanka to reject the film a few days before shooting was about to start.

    Still, Salman should get over it now, especially if he really feels the film has gained from Katrina’s presence and if he really feels overall the film is very good.

    As for Mohapatra, she makes a few good points but the ‘real men’ claim is below the belt stuff and it does make her claims sound extremely cheap.

    Does she mean that Nick Jonas is a real man while Salman isn’t? Has she tried both of them in that case?

    Anyway, it is one silliness followed by another and in the end, the film only ends up garnering cheap publicity.

    But all of the stuff only displays things that appear to be in bad taste at both ends.
