Trailer: Zero is Jab Tak Hai Jaan 2.0 with Katrina as the hero

Do you remember the tragic ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’? It wasn’t a tragic film, per say. Just a film that went wrong in so many ways. The reason it worked mainly is because it was Yash Chopra’s last film. It was the film that Shah Rukh Khan decided to break his no-kissing clause in with Katrina Kaif. Anushka Sharma was her usual hippie/high self in the film. The story was alright, but somehow we felt it would have done better if another actress was cast in Katrina’s role; someone who was much more senior and mature as an actress.

Trailer: Zero is Jab Tak Hai Jaan 2.0 with Katrina as the hero

 

So, the trailer of ‘Zero’ released today on Shah Rukh’s birthday. As you know, it was one of the most anticipated trailers of 2018 right behind ‘2.0‘ and ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ – the Hindi/Bhojpuri remake’. Since earlier this week, Bollywood journalists and celebrities have been tweeting that they got to see the trailer of ‘Zero’ and were blown away. There were rumours that Shah Rukh was playing an alien in this film, but clearly that is not the case based on the trailer.

Is it you, Jaddoo?

Nice jacket, Shah Rukh. (wink-wink)

Check out the trailer of ‘Zero’ below:

 


Basically, Shah Rukh plays a dwarf who is looking for a girl to get married to. He finds Anushka and had no idea that she is physically-challenged. She falls in love in him and then gets dumped at the altar. In the meantime, Shah Rukh meets Katrina and gets a taste of stardom and fame. He then gets dumped by Kat and returns back to find Anushka. Shah Rukh and Anushka have shot at NASA and there’s a rocket launch also at the end of this trailer, so maybe Anu got a job there and he went to find her. That background track playing through SRK and Anu’s screentime is really beautiful. It looks like the VFX in this film was used on mostly Shah Rukh’s character. A lot of minizing had to be done so that he looks proportionally like a dwarf.

Point is, it is the same sappy-soapy love story that Shah Rukh has been doing for ages. The only difference is, he is a dwarf in the film and Anushka is on a wheelchair. But, why did he need to be a dwarf? The alien-part made sense, but if he is not an alien, why the dwarf then? Is he trying to find the characters that he hasn’t essayed yet in a love story? And, after that disastrous ‘Jab Harry Met Sally Sejal’ SRK and Anu should have taken a break and let the audience recover. Coming back this soon is a bit too much. As you know, Shah Rukh knew very well that he needed top actresses alongside him to make this film work.

In his career, he has played an army officer (Army, MHN & JTHJ), an obsessed guy (Darr), revenge guy (Baazigar), college guy (KKHH), drama guy (DTPH), tour guide (JHMS), older unmarried guy (CE), guy with Kebab-Jo’s-attempt-at-serious-cinema disease (MNIK), poor guy then reborn into rich actor guy (OSO), guy with heart problem (KHNH), alcoholic jilted lover/guy (Devdas) and many more. So yes, this will be his first-time playing a dwarf! He also has not played an alien yet or an overweight guy.

Wonder if it hurts doing scenes like this one at his age with his bad knees:

Shout-out to those scientists, who worked day and night just to make wheechairs more flexible:

The trailer is better than the teaser and you don’t really feel he is a dwarf unless he mentions or it is a long shot of him with other people. And….For once or perhaps the first time, Katrina Kaif outshines everyone else in this trailer! That’s quite something. What an entry and introduction to her character! It is definitely because her character is quite close to what she is in real life, minus the alcoholic part – unless that’s what happened to her when she broke up with Raymond. It will be interesting to see how she acts in the film because she won’t be in small bits like in the trailer. Let’s see if she can hold it up. Congrats, Kat. You finally arrived with a bang!

Wait a minute! This got us thinking: What if that “breaking up with Raymond and curse get lifted” thing is real? Remember how it worked wonders for Deepika? Will it be the same for Kat now? Something to think about.

Oh and she gets to chumma chatti again with Shah Rukh. Damn, who would have thought that the king of romance Shah Rukh Khan would now be doing this in almost all of his films since JTHJ?

If this was truly JTHJ 2.0 or maybe a mash-up:

  • Anushka got badly injured by that bomb blast and ended up on a wheelchair
  • Katrina after breaking up with Shah Rukh goes on to become a star, who drinks away her sorrow

  • Can’t really explain what happened to Shah Rukh, though. Have you seen ‘Mr & Mrs Khiladi (1997)? There was this scene in it, we watched this film only once and yet only this scene stayed with us:

 

At the Trailer Launch of Zero:

The most interesting part happened at the trailer launch where Shah Rukh was asked a couple of questions. Now if you are familiar with Shah Rukh, he has this very smart way of praising everyone, who works with him especially his heroines; like over the top praises. First of all, the trailer launch event was such a grand one, almost like a wedding function. Deepika and Ranveer should have just used the same venue and props after SRK was done with it. Then Katrina and Anushka would be compelled to attend!

No, but seriously it was filled with enough entertainment for anyone who attended the launch. There was food stalls and other fun activities. Quite a lot of money was spent on it. Hopefully, it’s not to make everyone say it’s an amazing trailer.

So, this happened at the trailer: The smartypants journalist who asked SRK about Priyanka’s engagement at that show was probably at this launch since this questions was asked:

Ranveer, Deepika and your close friends, Priyanka is getting married.

He could have given a diplomatic response by congratulating PC, but instead he went on a rant and tried to make it look like he was saying something funny. The fact that the media keeps asking him about PC says something! They ain’t scared of pissing him off anymore! PC would be really happy to see how questions about her got him rattled. Seriously, SRK should just give it a normal answer and be done with it! How hard is it to say, “Congrats”? As long as PC will keep on doing things, the media will keep on asking SRK about it and we will keep writing about it! Cycle of life! But you know what it is? Shah Rukh has a big ego and he is still mad that PC outed him the way she did: on an international level! Like he knows she is doing all this in front of the world to see to piss him off.

By the way, wouldn’t Rajpal Yadav be so endearing in this film? Like, if it was made years ago when he was happening. Now he has pretty much disappeared and he also got in legal troubles. But, he is a great actor and in no way appears creepy.

      my point was not to go into chronological accuracy, but just to point that katrina could manage that position without ever starring in a credible role.and please do not reply hence forth to my comments, you seem to keep detailed account of every detail and when the news came out.i talk in approximate timelines, the dates and years can be on off by few months or a year.I usually write the comments remembering what i has once read which is gossip without corroborating every tiny detail on google.also this is my last comment under any of your post and i request you do so too.thanks.

      Highest paid as in collective amount of money,Katrina was bad at acting but she made a lot of money due to her popular songs and brands.i was talking about the Forbes top ten list ,she was the only woman in 2012.then there were kareena,priyanka and deepika in subsequent years in that top ten list.its commendable to be included with all the top stars,the top 5 are oviously khans and akshay but these women made more money than all other male actors.

      Also Katrina doesn’t get money like deepika and kangana,but she is in the same range as anushka,sonam.which is something.even sonam had good reviews for raanjhana and neerja,but Katrina is surviving only on songs.even after she has lost her angelic face which was her USP,every other a list actress either has looks or good acting skills or high profile relationship or big brands to prop them up.katrina lost everything in 2016,also shraddha jaquiline are in line to replace her.still she is managing to cling and earn decent money is what I appreciate.i really thought she would have to go back to London,because she was literally thrown out of all brands and films…after all that even managing 15 minutes cameo in big films is an achievement.

    Totally off topic- i was watching bits of old KWK yesterday and noticed that none of the actresses(Kareena, Anushka, Sonam, Katrina – probably Ranbir’s equation) are fond of DP.
    Can anyone/admin tell me what could be the reason?

    • Ananya says:

      Honestly speaking @Pd2012 it’s actually not that surprising. It’s a phase every No 1 Actress go through. From the time of Sridevi – Maduri to Deepika right now. All of them have faced this situation of hate and loneliness. Maduri has openly talked about how lonely it’s at the top.

      Kareena was once the most hated actress by all other ladies. She’s bitchy too but half of it was bz of the success. Ash remains distant on her own choice. Rani had issues with only Ash I think but she’s also not a fav among ladies. So yeah every actress who was at the top has experienced this, some by their action, some bz of the success and some bz of both.

      In Deepika case, Sonam and she was bffs and Sonam is a very transparent person. You can see how lovely she was to Dp pre 2010. Deepika was declining then and no one really expected her to rise up. Sonam was touted as the next big thing which got squashed. Not an easy pill to take if your friend scores more than you. I don’t judge Sonam for it.

      Kareena has always said she can’t be friends with competitors and fair enough she said the truth aloud.

      PC and Dp was good until Hw happened. So yeah competition kind of ruins things for you.

      Kat and Dp it’s more of a personal tiff and i think that’s the only equation where Dp is cold too.

      I don’t know why Anu is cold but if my sources from Bangalore are to be believed, their competition actually started way back from school/ college days. Anushka wanted to be successful like Dp be it in modelling or acting bz her mother wanted it. The stress from her mother might have led to her hating Dp. Don’t we all hate the topper in class when your mother goads you with her success.
      As far as I know, Anu did well too but somehow the complex never left? Or it’s Rs thing. But I don’t think Anu is still hung up on Rs to hate Dp for it. So maybe this old competition between them sort of ruined things forever. Otherwise I think both of them could actually have a good relation, at least cordialness.

      And in bollywood, what Bebo said rings true. You can be friends with ppl who are not your competitors or are a level lower than you.

      Kat and Anu shares a warm equation bz never will both of them compete for the same role. They can co exist. Sonam is friends with Jacquline, Swara, again no fight for similar roles. Kareena is friends with Amrita. Deepika with Shahana or Kalki.

      And this is not just for actresses. Even actors have this same level of equation with each other, though they play pally before camera. Be it the khans or Rk-Rs to Ayushman-Rao all of them share similar equation. But girls get discussed more for obvious reasons.

    • Lucy says:

      Ananya I have a different view,her overactive pr destroyed everything for her.after her success she tried mending bridges,but it was too late.sonam was hurt not by her success but how she patched up with rk after the kwk episode,she spoke about it.both of them equally bitched him out but she quickly patched up with him and landed roles,but sonam was left out in the cold and lost opportunity to work in big films.this was in 2011 way before deepikas success.

      Anushka was initially okay with her,deepika actually asked anushka’s permission before she started dating ranveer.so ranveer has never been an issue between them.it was films again.anushka also gave an interview in 2012 asking not to throw garbage at her.she mentioned deepikas name.it was with yjhd,anushka was supposed to do it.but deepika had a habit of lobbying very hard for movies other actresses were almost signed for and she bagged them as well.courtesy anirban blah.

      Priyanka lost ram Lela overnight,but somehow she didn’t hold it against deepika but was angry with Sanjay Lela bhansali.who gave her Mary Kom and everything was okay again.

      Kareena had a bone to pick with her from love Aaj kal days.she wanted that film but imtiaz was obsessed with deepika.

      Kangana is very open about why she hates deepika,she wanted the same attention she gave her,but deepika didn’t.she wanted genuine appreciation but felt deepika was only trying to show off how she is supportive but never personally says anything nice.also deepika lobbied very hard for Rangoon,and her pr spread news about kangana’s Unprofessional behaviour to grab it.

      I think everyone understands that professional rivalry is essential when you are starting your career,but if you keep doing the nasty PR even after you have success then it pisses people off.thats the reason everyone else gets along,because they all stopped their aggressive PR once they found their place.but deepika did not.there was a blind in end December 2015 how all the actresses have decided to completely boycott deepika and not respond to any comments.since then deepika has been trying to mend fences but no one is relenting.

      • Ananya says:

        I understand if you have a different perspective @Lucy. But some of your information is wrong.

        About Sonam maybe that can also be a reason. I’ve heard news like that. But I’ve also heard how Sonam who was managed by same pr often had showdowns with agency bz Dp did better. This is reliable info. And Sonam is just like Kareena, if you’re in her good book she’s your bff, if not, never. Again you can see how PC handled Rl situation vs how Sonam handled it.

        Aggressive competition is part of any field and much so if you’re replaceable women. It needs a maturity to handle that pressure like Dp said in a 2012 interview that in sports, you remain bff with your opponent, play a game, go back and share a room despite the result of the match. Only Dp and PC seemed to have that maturity in current league, again until Hw happened.

        The tiff with Kangana was very small issue. She wanted the same attention yes, and had sort of genuine affection to Dp. Maybe she didn’t feel it back in same intensity. I don’t know if that’s enough reason to pick a bone. I find that silly but maybe Kangy is a sensitive person. I don’t think we can judge either of them for it. If I’m not wrong Dp did try to mend ways multiple times until she gave up completely. And no it’s not Rangoon but Sapna she lobbied. It was in talks from 2015. Vishal himself clarified Dp was lobbying for Sapna since two years.

        Also Yjhd was Kat role which she denied owing to a break up with Rk. Dp was the first choice for Ayan, he himself said that. Later it went to many others and finally Ayan decided on Dp and Dp did it bz she was ousted from Dhoom.

        And honestly I don’t think lobbying for a role (hard/soft) is wrong. Ultimately who the Director wants will be fixed. Anu was lobbying for Anand film alongside Dp. So when she backed out, Anu landed the role. I don’t see anyone showing animosity bz of that.

        I’m not denying the Pr overdrive. I wasn’t really in touch with gossips and news back then so maybe she did have such a pr. I’m not gona defend it, if it’s so. But yeah I stand by the view I maintained in the before comment. This is a very normal thing, among actors and actresses. Only Kareena had it in her to say it as it is.

      @lucy and @ananya sonam and DP were handled by bling when they started. Dp changed to Kwan early 2012. Despite calling DP’s pr overactive (kwan pr) and despite all the accodales she got for Neerja in 2016, a movie produced by Atul Kasbekar founder of Bling she left Bling in 2016 and joined Kwan, the agency that handles DP and at one point of time she called over-enthusiastic pr. Her reason waa because Kwan (half owned by CAA) can get more opportunities from HW. Dp actually was offered Fast and furious (Vin himself in interview said that. So it is not a rumour spread by her pr) but because Race 2 schedule conflicting with FF she could not take FF. So we kinda understand why Sonam called out her pr. If they were so agressive so bad why choose them over Bling who gave her career best movie Neerja?

      If you watch or read SLB’s interview one shuold know how obsessed with beauty he is. He met DP and got enamoured by her beauty. After Ash’s beauty she was the only actress whos beauty caught him. That is why he went with her instead of pc. Even RS in RL promo interview said that the poetic way SLB described her beauty even he got mesmerized by her. He gave Mary Kom (a movie he produced to PC) and she did an item song in RL. PC was offered BM while she was shooting Mary kom, RS was offered BM while he was shooting Gunday, DP while RL shooting was going on. (They in different interviews talked abput when they were offered BM. Most are promo video interviews for BM and DDD) So they all got the offer in 2013. PC never had a fallout with SLB or DP. DP and PC were thick buddies till they went to HW.

      Suraj B gave interviews saying DP is his heroine for PRDP and they were in talks with her. But Salman (because of Anil) pushed Sonam for the role and she bagged it over DP. Later Sonam pr released articles saying it was only her they considered for PRDP eventhough there ar print interviews of Suraj B saying he wanted DP and Rajshree twitter account ran polls like which actress should play lead of PRDP, DP and and Sonam were the only options. Unlike other nepos dp does not have family friends or family members who can run around lobbying for roles. So her pr do the job. Is it a crime? Nepos will never understand that. So even Sonam lobbies for roles. She lobbied for Raees and Zero when she got rejected gave an interview saying SRK did not want to work with him. Even for Rabne Kjo lobbied hard for her to get the role over Anu was a huge rumour back then. During ADHM promo he admitted to how he tried to get Anu replaced in Rabne. He did not say for whom he was lobbyimg for but going back to rumours back then, we know it was for Sonam. Aamir got DP replaced in D3 with Kat. When DP or her pr do it, it is wrong and over-enthusiastic, bit when others family friends and family memebers lobbies for role they are right and they are not bein over-enthusiastic.

      Everyone have gor pr and publicists. Even people like RK who denies it. It is part and parcel of showbiz. So no reason to only call out DP’s pr. Even she get negative and malicious articles planted about her. Is her pr dumb to plant negative articles about her. So even other people use pr to undermine rivals. Her pr get called out. Outsiders got no family member or family friend to do the lobbying and dirty work so their pr do it. Even Kat pr was quite agressive back then. Her friend (aka pr) always release news about her or defend her in public.

      I think sports is the wrong metaphor for how actors and their PR play dirty .in sports players have rules in bw there are none so don’t expect sportsman spirit .no one is saint weather it’s dp/Kat/anu/Sonam/alia etc on playing their PR game to succeed. they pay the price in terms of isolation broken friendships for whatever they do reach the top. How much their PR are allowed to bs about others is a choice that eventually is with these stars

      Monalisa,I am not calling out anyone’s pr nor am I forming an opinion of what is right or wrong.it was my speculation about why all actresses have a problem with her even now when they are no longer fighting for same roles.its her aggressive PR and extremely introverted nature.she did what she had to do for the roles and her career,but she left it at that.the differences festered,she does not have PC”s or ranveer people skill to win over people after you have had an ego clash or professional rivalry.call it her bad luck or whatever,the other actresses did not have such fierce rivalry among themselves for roles.anushka sonam were lobbying for zero,but at different times.anushka alia too but it never went to aggressive lobbyinglevels.kangana deepika had wanted same roles at one point,no other actress had a lobbying match with kangana for any role.they usually fight for the big films with superstars but it always has been deepika against some other actress.

      Like recently PC and Katrina were fighting the PR war for bharat,after that they both still wish each other.most probably Katrina will attend PC’S wedding.thats what I call skill,to assuage frayed egos after you have clashed.deepika cannot seem to do it.she tried with veered Di wedding,those 4 girls cold shouldered her.and I think this is the only reason.

      @lucy I did not specifically say you were calling out her pr, I said people started calling out her pr after what Sonam said. And gave examples of how she lobbying is done by Sonam but not using her pr as she got other means to do so. I even @Ananya. I was giving my opinion and some facts as to what went on back then. So whatever I wrote in this comment is also in that regard not something against what you said. As I said everyone’s got pr and hypocrite Sonam even after calling Kwan overactive, joined them when she got the chance.

      Sonam and DP’s rivalary is personal as well and RK is the reason just like DP-Kat. Even after kwk RK and his parents forgave DP more quickly than they did to Sonam. Rishi blasted both the girls equally but they were asking Sonam to apologize and Sonam was like why should I apologize I did not lie about anythin I said and he called me unsexy first so I gave it back to him. If you watched the episode, you will know she was actually more meaner to him than DP was. Dp only said the condom comment and cheating one she said much more than that about him and his mommy. Even Ak in kwk talked about kapo or’s over-reaction to Sonam’s comment. There were blinds how Sunita and Neetu were bad mouthed each others parental skills to mutual friends after the incident. So you saying Sonam was pissed because DP became friends with RK quickly is wrong. As both Kapoor families were close since Raj Kapoor’s days (Ak’s father was his secretary and they used to live in RK’s garage) their families fueded over it for long. Rk and Sonam were childhood buddies and her kwk comments soured her relationship with RK as well as that between their families back then.

      Even after she ignored DP’s VDW comment, Sonam posted a pic of DP on her insta saying how good she looked in bhane and DP commented on it as well. And DP was at Sonam’s diwali party last year and DP did say every year they exchange diwali gifts. At this point they are cordial and neither Sonam or DP has claimed they are friends. They said that on kwk most probably to rile up RK and gang up to bash him.

      DP admitted to being socially awkward and being an introvert to not having friends in Mumbai. And I don’t think she wanted to be any actresses’s friend apart from Anu as she knew Anu frm Bangalore. And I don’t think DP really want to act friendly with any heroine at this point. If she wanted her agressive pr could leak articles how she is buddy-buddy with so and so actress. Alia last year was saying how close she was to DP and her pr spread rumour of them collabing for jewellry brand. Dp in her filmfare interview last year point blank refuse the rumour of jewellry collab with Alia and she said she is fond of her and cormfortable with her did not call her a friend eventhough the question was about their friendship. (Full intervirw is on filmfare site). Even in Kwk when Alia tried to portray them as close buddies, she was the one who said they don’t hang out often but when they do there is comfort but she felt more connected to Shaheen.

      I have said this before, both RS and DP will hang out with bolly folks and party but when they are not working or networking they hang out with people the knew since childhood/before they became actors. Rs maybe friendly with everyone in bw but in interviews he always said his friends are the group of people he knew since before he was an actor/childhood friends same with DP.

      We can keep dissecting her equation with all the A-list actresses, but to me it all boils down to inherent jealousy towards someone with immenae beauty and grace.

      the idea that everyone especially females have to be bff’s in bw is just absurd does anyone get along with every one at work?? is friends with every one ??NO. everyone in BW is good looking that is part of their job requirement every actor is in obsessed with themselves about themselves enough to like their own success and not others.
      DP or alias or whoever it was at the top at their time was ambitious enough, competitive enough and manipulative enough to be there. dp has no industry friends is her choice no one wanting to be friendly with her is theirs. friendship is a way street and you get along with some not all ppl.

      alia has an close friend that she is spotted same with dp and its their choice.

      sonam is Regina George from mean girls she is so unintentionally obnoxious its hilarious like that dig about pretty girls not getting serious roles i mean dude….kareena and the arora sisters remind me of the kitty party aunties in my mohalla when i was growing up 🙂 kangana is too temperamental. with katrina there is too much bad blood. anu there might be residual awkwardness over ranveer. alia is too young and hyper. so who will deepika be friends with? she is defo socially awkward i am not sure about the aggressive PR. i also think lobbying for roles is different from putting out negative blinds and rumours about competitors. is she guilty of that? i havent come across it maybe i missed it. who have the main targets been in negative blinds? i think its mostly young actors who arent in kjo camp right? karthik, sushant, rajkummar…

        Even if her pr did put out negative blinds about others, my only point is, it’s not just her. PC with the wedding is getting personal dirty these days. Kareena pr was once on the same line. Kat pr is also aggressive and put out negative blinds about PC during Bharat and about Dp saying she’s not getting Rs films bz of Dp. Kangana does it with Hrithik or Kjo. Sonam does it too. I was shocked when I came to know she’s handled by Dp pr and I was like, didn’t she just out herself as the ‘sour grapes’ case.

        So it’s everyone’s Pr, not just one. So liking/ disliking someone on that means, they all don’t like each other at all. Not just Deepika.

        See they all aim to be No 1 and when one of them does, it’s not easy to act pally. Why even judge them for it, I don’t know. Imagine a corporate situation where you’re trying for a promotion and one gets it. Are you going to happy for him/ her?

        And if you have to blame anyone for the animosity, do it on Bollywood where three Khans or Rk Rs can co exist as No 1, but there’s only one spot for Queen. They make the competition difficult in the first place for ladies.

        See yest, Aamir tagged Dp, Kat, Alia as hot actresses right now. It’s baffling he chose Alia over Kareena or Ash or PC who are still relevant, beautiful and successful. Not hate against Alia, but do you see what they did there?

        Again with this comment I’m not defending Negative Pr, it’s wrong and anyone who does it must be called out equally. The extra focus on Dp pr is only bz of that bitchy comment by Sonam. So when every one does it, why should actresses hate Dp alone for it? You do the maths.

      Also, Anu and kat dont have any friends to speak of. About her friendship with Kat, diring JTHJ, there were couple of blinds abt both of them fighting over the same make up artist
      Another oneabout how friends in the industry mostly misguide you and hence it resulted in a ruined face. The blind implied that kat had advised anu her surgeon.

    • leaps says:

      @Ananya as far as amir comment on calling is concerned its to please kjo everyone under the sun can see alia is cute but dp/kat/pc hot? No . this entire season you will see the guests going gaga over alia’s hotness and aww the couple to be rk/alia. Kwk sp with amir was about them taking credit for me too and image make over exercise with amir going gaga over kiran . kjo even asked amir bebo or alia he didnot take any outsider name .

      @Nefarious Anu/kat on last kwk well very honest about their equation as friends so they dont go pull an alia type bff’s . anu has said her really close friends are outside bw and kat is very guarded about her private life i doubt she will go about telling ppl in ivs who she is in reality close to

    Actually I’m mixed about Zero Trailer. Yes it’s much better than what was expected with all the space ship, alien drama suggested. And I guess that’s why it’s getting praised too. I mean it looks better than toh, manikarnika so ppl are settling for above average.

    But on the other hand, it’s a typical srk film, an anand film perhaps?! I haven’t seen Anand films to say for sure, just saw a comment saying it is his medium in a larger scale. Srk is good at romance and he is aiming at it.

    But it’s funny it’s Kat and Anushka that’s getting dragged when actually the worst part of the film is Srk. He’s hamming badly but that gets overlooked bz actress fandoms want to prove each other down.

    Honestly can’t really say about performances now, including srk bz I didn’t get the vibe yet. Maybe in the film all of it looks better, including srk? Let’s see.

    Tho yes I’d like to say this, Kat maybe talentless but why she stands out for so long is bz of her screen presence and mass appeal. She’s doing what she’s good at and like someone said longevity and money matter right now. And I dont judge her.

    Anu felt like got the nuances at some points but yeah it’s nothing great. Again, since it’s not bad, ppl settling for above average. Yes Kalki example is right. She LIVED the role which is not the case with Anu. But yeah if she has indeed improved her craft, will be glad to praise her or Kat.

    At the moment I feel srk and Anu character deserved mature performers. Kat role is easy for her bz it’s Kat herself to an extent. Dialogue delivery is bad. But I have a feeling when I see the film I’ll think about wanting to cast someone else for all the three roles.

    But seems like it will get 150 c as of now. If good reviews 200+. Will it cross 300 have to wait and see.

    Alia , is over hyped ,she did give flopped film,razi ,the patriotic, story was key, but Alia was cast ,because kjo ,puts aloo , on all the plates! Alia , does not have the presence on screen of deepika, annu,or Katrina! As for RK, it is hard to see him faithful! Next , tall,,and beautiful actresses, RK will move on! Alia, is cute, but she is loosing her youthful glow ,fast! Plus, her interviews, are mind numbbing ! Plus , she does not have elegance , height,and features to be called a great beauty ,or fashionista! Kjo , photoshopped pics,pr given a
    Her titles as sexiest women in asia, above kat ,and others, is really delusional !

    • Guest says:

      Add to that she is trying to look way older than she is, she already has a lip job.

      The other delusion rk/dp shippers have is rk even though he cheats, leacks personal info, plays mind games is a good simple humble guy lol.

      The most delusional lot are those who think Alia//Kat are bff’s

      The recent pics to showcases Alia with Kat are as good as pics of fatima and Kiran so much for look Kat/Alia bff for real lol

    @lucy @lucy I completely agree with you here. If kat has work nicely she should be praised. I m not against anyone getting praised for their good work. I do praise ppl who I dislike for their good work and condemn a my favs for their bad work or wrong choices. I cant say about TZH as I haven’t seen it yet. its krrish 4. but I have heard PC is doing the film . Let see. kat is good at dancing but limited to one form.

      Priyanka will be there no matter what,she is the wife.katrina will most probably be in other roles like kangana.i don’t particularly like Katrina,but right now I sympathise with her.with how ranbir and his mother tried using her past to show her like some dirty human,when they both are worse.and how alia backstabbed her.for these two reasons only I want her to see a lot of success.

      • Goldengirl says:

        Let see who they cast for the movie. It was Kat own choice to go after ranbir. I dislike her but still feels it was the biggest mistake of her life. I dont sympathize with her. She has hurt too many people to get rk. As far as past is concern, it has to come out one day . People here, loves to use someone weakness or dirty secrets for their benefits. Really want to know how alia backstab her? Alia is not the reason of rankat breakup at all nor she snatches anything. Kat too is known for backstabbing. For success, she is getting a lot (Good for her) and playing the game well. I may sound stupid or a hypocrite but I don’t have issues with Kat success or love she gets. My only issue lies that her fans abuses other women and stars including Lulia showing them as bad and talentless person while Kat as a saint who can’t do wrong. If someone only comments on her work as she is public figure so they abused them and call them jealous etc. They have even crossed the limits . U have no idea what they did to me. That’s makes me abhor Kat .

      @Goldengirl 99% of people in entertaiment are narcissist. All of them use each other and hurt each other all of them skeletons in their closets. alia doesn’t snatch anything well she going for varun knowing about natasha is what ? her getting other actress of highway, udta and DZ is snatching to some or playing the game . Alia pr’s sending out blinds about doing with srk/shahd or asking kjo to add kissing scenes with her costarsis not manipulative ??
      No one asked alia to fake bff’s with kat after 2014 fling with ranbir. Alia and kat were never bff’s so now that is with ranbir can alia STOP with her me/kat bbf routine for PR. its just bringing her more negativity

      Yes kat has past so what , ranbir’s family, alia’s family has a doggy past. Karishma, malika , sushmeta have huge similar skeletons so why go after only kat for that???
      You hate a person for her fans who actually has not sent out a memo out to insult other star fans btw.

      • Goldengirl says:

        I agree that 99 percent ppl are narcissist here. I on my said alia did by snatch anything from Kat. If alia fakes to be Kat bff so kat too pretended to be Alia bff. It’s from both the sides . There was a blind also why Kat pretending to be Alia bff .
        Who is not manipulative here in Bollywood? All of them are.
        I contacted about Alia ranbir fling in 2014. May be it’s true . But there were news of Kat flings with hrithik in 2014. Isn’t it ?

        No one is a saint here. You can’t only blame alia and say Kat is innocent.
        Every one has a past no doubt .

        Lastly, no one send a memo to insult other stars. TRUE. But don’t fandoms hate a star coz of their fans and PR? They do.

    • Lucy says:

      Kat has done it all,so have all the stars.i have a problem with how rk tried every trick in the trade to humiliate her over and over again.he could have left her alone after the breakup,but as far as I know he kept on playing with her till late 2016 for his own sadistic pleasure.he gave her the commitment of marriage after knowing all about her past,he could have easily only kept the relationship as a casual one.why give someone hope of marriage if you have made up your mind about dumping.with salman the case was different,he only got serious about Katrina after aishwarya marriage.but he used to beat her very violently,there were two incidents reported but in India form thread there were more details of his abuse from more incidents.the kind of background she comes from and the child abuse she has suffered I think it is not humanly possible for anyone to choose that for the rest of your life.it is very understandable why she wanted someone who doesn’t physically abuse her.at that time she was frantically looking for someone nice,not just ranbir even John.about Julia I don’t know if it is her fans or pr that bash Julia,I thought it was his entire coterie who did that.arpita hates iulia and so does everyone in his group.its only recently that they have warmed up to her.and let’s be fair,if salman gave her that place of a gf than no one not even Katrina can do anything about it.as of now she has stopped going after salman as well,I think.

      With alia my problem is she doesn’t need to play games,because she has got everything on her plate.these outsiders who play games and are manipulative have to do it to survive,what is alia’s excuse?after the ranbir alia affair Katrina has stopped all communication from her side,but alia still wants to play the bff game.and I don’t see any reason for it.she can be happy with rk,neetu and karan,but she has this constant need to rub it in deepikas and katrinas face.

      @lucy yup alia dating ranbir sure who cares but wanting to be bff’s with kat is just cringe.
      now even after making faces at sid mention on kwk to save herself, her pr sent out an article that sid was unfaithful/commitment and ranbir saved her ROFL I mean who will buy the BS that ranbir is infamous cheater Casanova playboy’s love saved alia from sid to be honest even if alia/sid faked it ranbir is a downgrade in the eyes of the public , its just plain stupid. also everyone knows alia’s and ranbir’s habbit of using personal life for PR also both are infamous for linkups

    • Lucy says:

      Leaps I saw that,something is going terribly wrong for alia.with every statement or facial expression she makes she is getting a lot of hate.i never knew siddharth had so many fans,but it’s like they have risen from the dead,and are literally ripping alia apart.i have a feeling his next massy film will be a hit,and if he really is dating kiara then it will only boost his hotness quotient.i have a feeling he is trying to move out of dharma shadow and will be like John Abraham.not get praised for acting but because of his looks and personality will have massy films which if hit then his career will be back on track.also he is extremely likeable.with alia his desirability was affected,he came across as a paedophile.

      With ranbir,his reputation is so tarnished I don’t think alia or karan will be able to save it.how long do you think he can manage with ayan and another small boy alia.he will cheat maybe with commoners but will be caught as well.he cannot hide for long.its almost a year till Brahmastra,I really want to see how far they will take it.8 have a feeling karan johar will get alia impregnated by ranbir to prove that they are having an affair.

      • LondonThumakda says:

        @Lucy I am actually starting to think purely from PR perspective RK cannot afford another breakup. My mom was saying how he gives her the creeps and she’s like ab is choti bachchi ko bhi bigaad dega lol.. the funny thing is most average people (like my mom) dont follow gossip or blinds and dont even know about all the cheating and sociopathic behaviour. they just see him break up with two beautiful girls and think he is the male panauti. now if he breaks up with the choti bachchi he will become a joke. alia i’m with you either she is so obsessed with ranbir she is turning a blind eye but i really think she’s ruining her image, i checked her insta comments on a couple of RK pics and man there is a lot of hate out there… even her next few films are all big ensembles where she might get lost in the crowd or films where the focus will be on the male lead like gully boy. personally and professionally i think she’s making wrong moves but lets see only time will tell…

    • Lucy says:

      London,I also think karan has lost interest in her.how is he letting her do all the pr mistakes.just saw Katrina and alias picture from srk party.this need to be BFF with deepika and especially Katrina will backfire on her.katrina is playing it smartly by not starting another relationship.she is looking like deepika after her breakup with rk.it would have been better to link alia with Aditya Roy kapoor.but I guess alia has no plans of being number one star,as such she doesn’t have any sex appeal,if she does get married she will be playing character roles.only kareena could manage to maintain the sex appeal after marriage and a baby.
      As for ranbir I feel he is being blackmailed by karan johar and neetu kapoor.he agreed for the alia linkup before Sanju,at one point he was annoyed as well.maybe karan convinced him,and by the time sanju was a blockbuster he was already neck deep in the “relationship”.and little alia clung to him like her life depended on rk.now if he breaks up now he will look like a user,if he stays in the relationship and breaks up after film release he will look like a sociopath.if he had his way he would be with someone hot,he can’t even fake it with alia.brahmastra promotions will reveal all,as of now I think alia is very besotted with ranbir.he must really be very very charming in real life and private,god only knows how he makes these ladies fall madly in love with him.

    • leaps says:

      @lucy/london ranbir on how he treats women is classic case of narcissist he has all the tell tale signs.

      Alia break up or whatever it was with sid was a huge favor by alia. her ieda of PR is nauseating pr about her relationship while promoting films which may have been to look sexy by association of dating sexy men .even if sid/alia was a showmance they were atleast friends who alia chose to make faces about unlike sid who have quietly moved on alia definitely lacks maturity maybe she should look at how bebo dealt with break up since alia like to copy bebo a bit too much

      Now sid is seen less he seem to be focusing on work his PR is no longer selling his personal life hes seen less/meets fan didnt resort to sell out alia through bad pr articles on the other alia threw him under the bus in true kjo style to hype ranbir as romeo ROFL one has to laugh at that bad move. so now sid appeals more to people because being less in public add mystery which ppl are attracted too. sid is also finally moving away for dharma a good thing for him.

      Alia has always said she wants to marry ranbir after her chase on varun didnt get her anywhere she wants ranbir and kjo has given her the trilogy platform more thn 7 years to be with him. aLia has said emotional infidelity is her deal breaker so yeah perfect for ranbir. Alia finally signed her first pic outside dharma with mahesh bhatt after being cast in cast in mutli starrer by kjo and kjo cast sara jhanvi with more films. Ranbir has no reputation to lose so another break up wont effect him at this point anyone who dates him does so at their own risk.

      Alia ranbir shadi is one symbiotic shadi to both parties

    I saw your comments. You seem to be obessed with this golden girl. All you are doing is calling her out and not enjoying Katrina getting good reviews for her acting for the first time. Humpty dumpty or whatever your name is kindly tell me what’s wrong if a father chooses a groom for his daughter? It’s not wrong or conservative. How do you know is she single or her father will choose the groom? Get a life man. Every individual is entitled to their opinion. By attacking someone personally you are only showing how ugly you are as a person .

    Very unpopular opinion amidst all this SRK mania but I found the trailer average. SRK is again doing same things with only diff of him being a dwarf. Anushka seems to have a diff role but again overall it’s a love triangle. And I really hope that Rocket thing isn’t some mindless addition with SRK proposing Anushka on some spaceship or planet.

      exactly my thoughts,with the dwarf and space thing I thought it will be something out of the world,a very different story innovative on the lines of science fiction or something.

  11. Monalisa says:

    Surprisingly I loved the trailer. The teasers and posters were really lacking but this is a well-cut trailer. The trailer has really piqued my interest. TOH vfx is so bad and cartoonish but Zero’s vfx is good. Looks like they fixed the vfx after the first teaser was mocked for the cartoonish vfx. Kat maybe a bad actress but she has got more screen presence than Anushka. Kalki in Margarita with a straw portrayed the role of girl with cerebral palsy in such a nuanced and awesome way that Anushka’s portrayal (eventhough she is not bad) pales in comparison. Might change my mind after watching the movie but whatever bit shown of her in the trailer did not impress me. So Kat’s screen presence and her attempt at successfully emoting in some scenes was the plus point for me as well. Kat atleast tried to emote in this movie unlike the zero expressions she was giving in TOH songs. SRK is doing what SRK does best and I feel this time it would work.

    Seriously @admin please stop your Raymond obsession not. 😂 Anyhow what you said about RK curse is not something new. Have seen a lot of people articulating the same and Kat herself in an interview did insinuate that the phase after the breakup is the time to really focus on the career and shine. So you are not far of with your assumptions. Her career was on the last leg before TZH with back to back 5 or 6 flops. After TZH she bagged big banner Khan movies (courtsey of you know who). Also there was rumour that her character is based on her real life so you were not wrong with the Raymond joke. So imo the critisim you got for the Raymond jokes on this post is uncalled for.

    zero looks promising. SRK has put in a lot of effort and you can tell her has. Anushka seems great. Katrina i don’t know since the did not show a lot of her and maybe that’s indicative of her role length in the movie.
    Thugs of Hindustan seems awful from the caricaturish acting of aamir to the terrible suraiya song. I don’t think Amitabh can salvage that sinking ship. After Dangal, thugs is a massive let down for aamir fans .

    hmm..after raees i had a glimmer of hope that srk might go back to the baazigar/darr type roles which i loved him for but thats been dashed why srk why? all the big trailers have disappointed me thugs, manikarnika, now this.. i have nothing to look forward to 🙁

    Anushka, i have to say is having a really interesting year – pari, sui dhaaga and now a disabled character. its funny she doesnt get even a small fraction of the hype alia gets for choosing unusual roles. i havent actually seen these or raazi but would be interested to know how people thought they compared performance-wise…

    and yeah i am totes in agreement with admin’s RK theory, was never a fan of Kat but am rooting for her now hope these films work for her and make her ex and ex-bff turn green with envy 😉 BUT SHE NEEDS TO STOP THE BOTOX! kangana’s recent pics look weird too cmon girls you’re only 30ish dont ruin yourselves you’d be gorgeous even with a couple of laugh lines…

      These films will work but not because of Katrina. She has smaller parts and playing a second fiddle. Only her dance will get appreciated . Her ex has given a solo hit and ex bff too delivered a big hit soley on her own and gave a powerful performance . Katrina really needs to do a performance oriented movie without any big name and deliver . In these Khan ‘s movies she is such a show piece. See kangana , Anushka, alia, deepika all has given hits without big heroes and delivered well. I don’t have a feeling that if these movies work ,any of Kat ex or her EX bff would be affected given they know Katrina ‘s limitation as an actress and also that these are Khan’s films.

      Even in 2016 Anu had a great career with two blockbusters ADHM and Sultan. All her biggest competitions PC and DP did not have any release in 2016 and Kat was giving flops. She still could not claim the number one position. She just does not have the star quality, mass appeal, screen presence, x factor and aura of PC, Kat, DP, KKK to do that. To be number one the most important thing to have is the x factor, aura, screen presence, star quality. I feel the same way about Alia. Even the high profile marriage to VK which boosted Anu and Virushka brand did nothing for her box office pull. And DP is still ruling ormax and other brand value/star power measuring statistics released.

      @london you are right that Alia is paid media hype. But she seem to have a good connect with the younger lot. Lets see if she can hold on to them with Jhanvi, Sara, Ananya, Tara (other kjo nepos making debut). Alia has big banner, event films on her platter Brahmastra, Takht. The one with the best lineup for 2019 is KKK.

Trade and the industry is fully aware of the facts that Katrina is a limited actress. She will continue to get work for two reasons : one is Salman and the another one is that every A list actress is married or getting married. How long will they take Alia ? So she has no competition so far. I am not saying Katrina acted bad here but she is not extra ordinary as well. Let see. Trailer seems to suggest she has a small part and Katrina always fails in emotional scenes.

      @lucy Anushka is smart her PR isnt trying to paint her the next biggest thing ,She is working in movies like sultan but using the money to produce movies like pari, nh10. in the long run she will have a better filmography and will have the easiest transition to character actor unlike the superstars who may end up conflicted between keeping stardom and character based films. Anushka is even producing a series for amazon forget box office pull she is making smart moves in terms of investments in media of future

      Karina has figured out her strengths e.g dancing, looking sexy and knows as long as ppl like you she can stay in focus and ofcourse salman helps. kat has the ability to pull masses as long as she has that she will stay.

      ALia biggest problem is her trust in kjo the ultimate snake of bw, kjo isnt even sincere to srk whom he calls bhai. Uptill now she has gotten first picks thanks to kjo she has no network outside dharma with so many nepokids coming up why would other production houses pick her . The backlash is due to PR nausea

      As far as raymond he is a bad luck of charm for the women he dates everyone does well post break up sonam, dp, kat had tiger zinda hai and has TOH,ZERO,bharat dance movie with varun she getting back in the game.

      @leap Anu’s business sense is good but her sole purpose of starring in Khan movies is to get money is incorrect. She work on those movies because just like other actresses she also want to work and say proudly that I have worked with all the Khans. KKK , Anu and Kat are the only 2000 actresses who can claim that. PC tried by signing Salute when Aamir was onboard because then she could also claim the same.

      If you look at her how her pr worked in 2010- 2012 phase she was painted as the next big thing. They were smart enough to stop when they realized it was not working. I brought up 2016 because her fans were going on about how Anu has arrived and she got no competition so she is going to be number one. Anu is smart and my intention was never to undermine her achievements.

      And regarding the superstars who in the long run will not make the transition in to character roles, that only applies to Kat. Dp, KKK all are decent actors so when they stopped being number one they could transit in to character roles easily and they themselves have done such roles already. KKK played flower pot roles in Khan movies along with performance oriented roles.
      KKK to some extent after her maternity leave proven herself. Dp took off to hw at the peak of her career so had no hindi release in 2016-2017. Even in her peak 2013-2015 phase she did a varety of roles and apart from Race 2, HNY the roles were performance oriented, meaty and she got good reviews. She has been balancing different roles as well. She was confimed for Anu’s role in Zero (Anand L Rai himself in an interview with Masand said that DP was his heroine) but she had to drop out when Padmaavat shoot got stalled and delayed due to protests. So modus operndi of KKK, DP and Anu are not so different. It is just that Anu produce her own movies. I did not include Pc because her main focus is Hw.

      I’m waiting to see how Aloo’s career will go when Kjo’s other nepos career starts to take off. An actress like Aloo who got so much privilege should be compared to actresses with the same privileges. Kriti, Pari, Disha, Shraddha are far behind her because of this reason.

    • Monalisa says:

      @lucy I feel the same way about Anu as well. She knows what her strenght is. Good for her.

      Regarding your earlier comment about how she stopped the botox and fillers, I don’t know. She still can’t smile properly like she used to (she used have such a wide grin pre lip job and whatever else she did to her face) but now her face have the same tightness that Kat’s face have. The naturalness has been lost. I feel she stopped going overboard with the lip fillers only.

      @leap Disha is giving me strong vibes to be the next Kat. Beautiful, non-actresses with good figure and good dancing skills. I’m no Kat fan but during her peak she did have a good fan following. Kattu has got immense screen presence, appeal and star quality to pull the masses which Jacky (another beautiful, non-actress with good figure and good dancing skills) didn ot have. A lot of people predicted that she would take Kat’s position but she could not. Unless someone younger with Kat’s appeal and screen presence come on the bw scene she would still be around.

      @monalisa i was not calling out your opinion of anuskha. My point was simply at this present time she is investing very smartly in media, improving her own filmography by movies like nh10, pari that will age well. investment in web series knowing her aesthetic of investing in movies nh10, pari will mean she will produce good web content at least looks like

      Dp invests in different things if I am not wrong she will be producing for the first time so I cant comment on her investments in media

      @monalisa disha is doing salman’s film so who knows she might take kat’s place but kat’s sis is also coming up

    • Lucy says:

      Katrina’s sister is too bland,so is disha,kriti.they lack the aura,they are pretty and have a good body and face but not the strong screen presence.kiara advani and Sara ali are two people I am placing my bets on to be in the race for number one in few years.

      @lucy to be honest givn the brigade of star kids coming up I don’t see any outsider making it to the top in the next decade it’s one thing when there are 2/3 star kids now an entire brigade is coming up who will with them bring a lot more hurdles for outsider to make it

    • Lucy says:

      Leaps ,I think otherwise.even karan johar who tries to show off that he is not affected by the nepotism backlash is taking atleast one outsider in all his films just to show off that he is not after starkids only.kangana took on a lot of backlash from entire community but has opened doors for a lot of outsiders.do you think people like diljit,rajkumar,Vicky would have received a dharma production so early in their career.they may it be getting as good opportunities as the star kids,but this is better than what they would have got had the nepotism debate not started.also how he treated guests in kofee,it was evident you are respected if you are very successful or you are industry kid.otherwise if he invites you it’s to show his star kid as better than you.that was the only purpose they served.kangana,parineeti,everyone went through that.now he is inviting ayushman,rajkumar,etc just to show the world.otherwise he wouldn’t touch these people with a barge pole and look down upon them openly,like how he treated ranveer initially.everybody including Bollywood people,film magazines,award shows are trying to include outsiders so as to look credible to the public.

    • leaps says:

      and the outsider who end up on kwk thn just dont go up much in career. my point is these star kids will have huge backing these film familes will support each others kids outsider well goodluck btw no outsider should ever expect much from kjo

    • Monalisa says:

      @lucy Kjo is an opportunistic business man. He will use successful, rising outsiders to boost the careers of his nepos but throw them when they are not needed. He already did that with Pari, Shahid, John,etc.. (Exception is SRK as he was the nobody when he met SRK) @leap I agree with your previous theory of Kjo using rising star of outsiders to boost careers of nepos. Kjos brand of nepotism that he started with Alia is based on killing competition, stealing roles meant for other actresses, curating and producing the best scripts for his kids, financing projects of other ph/directors if they take on one of his nepos. It would be hard for newer outsiders to survive just like Alia’s competition Pari, Kriti, Shraddha are lagging behind her.

      Kjo invited successful outsiders like John, Bipash, Lara, Mallika, Sush, Ash, etc.. to KwK. Inviting people to kwk is not a way of him showing love for them. He is inviting the current happening outsiders like Aayushman, RKR , Bhumi because that would boost trp. Last season he refused Yami when HR requested her to be with him on the couch (to promore Kaabil) because she was not a very successful outsider. YRF talents who are popular and successful always end up on kwk because of Adi’s power and their friendship.

      He was not bothered or fazed one bit because of nepo backlash. He gave interview after interview defending his stand and bashed Kangu. Fought with random people on twitter, on IIFA came up with the infamous impromptu skit “Nepotism rocks”. He still launching nepo/star kid one after the other and grooming prospective star kids/ nepos. He is using successful outsiders just to boost career of nepos.

    Neither is ToH like Pirates for anyone who’s seen Pirates. (Ships look the same everywhere. N pirates are rugged n ragged-clothed everywhere. For those times at least.) Nor is Zero’s a bad trailer. OSOP is getting progressively bitchy for no reason at all. As in be bitchy, but fair bitchy. Like it’s doing the same thing it accused others of doing. Has its faves and oppositeoffaves. Katrina is a bad actress. Is she hardworking? VERY. But is it working? Hardly. She’s successfully sold the flawed idea that she’s a great dancer. But the actress part is unsaleable. She comes off as an extremely likeable person though with great work ethic. So I still root for her.
    And I know it’s not my business, but she shouldn’t have done shit to her face. Cuz it’s not moving in ToH. She’s already super pretty. (These face jobs stop being a personal choice once it becomes an epidemic, imo.)

      yup TOH is not pirates of the pirates of the Caribbean + gangs of new york. ofcourse TOH amir has no resemblance with jack , Fatima to Angelica and ab to barbosa/Armando Salazar ,
      1- amir runs on table is not a rip of POC on strange tides jack’s intro
      2- EIC officer using Monocular Telescope and amir’s comes in with his tiny ones isnt inspired from POC At World’s End
      3- The scene of ab fighting EIC on a ships mast post isnt inspired from POC Jack Sparrow v.s Davy Jones final battle scene
      5- amir’s character mannerisn, bullet train talking has absolutely no resemblance to jacks
      4- TOH trailer is eerily similar to POCon how its cut.
      ask any fan of POC they will tell you how not TOH is not inspired from which POC. TOH is as orignal as barfi in taking inspiration
      the scene in trailer where amir mix just like dhoom 3 was not The Prestige reminder

      These thugs have proved to be thugs,they have lifted scene to scene from pirates.it will make money as the masses will not have seen pirates ,the first three from which it is lifted.

    • leaps says:

      @lucy to those who think hirani has never copied we guess what this Amir Khan starrer 3 Idiots had a scene with great resemblance from a western advertisement for INSTANT KIWI so even . Also its not like PK has reminded some people of K-PAX

    • leaps says:

      @lucy you are ryte TOH is POC for our masala loving audience and will sell

    • Lucy says:

      Most of Indian movies and music are plagiarised,the ones I used to think are originals are also stolen.like sholay,the other day I realised the entire music album of Mann was lifted.i used to love that album,previously people didn’t realise it,now with internet everything is out in seconds,from where it is copied.thats why these films are sinking,bahubali was hilarious in some places but I could see the director made it very very Indian,that’s why it connected.the god worshipping is over,so people will not be afraid of calling it shit.aamir is not mr perfectionist after all,if people in China also feel the same about thugs/Indian pirates it will reflect in the revenue.he must be very very worried about his cover being blown off.

    • leaps says:

      @lucy bw just takes a foreign script and makes it organic enough for indian audience even in ,bahubali a few action sequences were a bit to inspired Embracing the Shower of arrows from Hercules,Chopper chariot Killing machine again from Hercules,Running animals on fire from the Netflix show Marco Polo,Falling into the jungle mesh from King Kong,Fight with the Bull/Boar from Hercules etc infact here is an article which details them all

    • Universal says:

      Oh, Cmon! For anyone who has seen 5 minutes of Jack Sparrow, it’s hard to miss Amir’s bad copy job of that character. Even his entry, eye rolling and slant hat immediately reminded me of Sparrow.
      It’s so disappointing to see that one of the biggest stars of India, biggest banners, with so much time and resources can’t go for something original.

      lol kat got praises where? Mostly are talking about Srk and Anushka. See twitter . Only kat fans are trying hard and bashing Anushka calling her a bad actress and over acting. Shows who is not happy with Anushka getting praised and have more screen space then kat. kat is the same. I feel bad for you , instead of talking about kat (well for how long u will praise her item songs in short dress, 10 min role in KHANS movie) you are more concern about me and my opinion and write more about me. LOL

    SRK was adorable but Kat completely surprised me. I dont know if she shot these two movies together together but unlike Thugs she looks amazing here and emotes well. You can tell she’s having fun here.

    Shah Rukh, i’m rooting for you. Let’s do this!

    And i agree with the Pooja on RK. Looks like you are just as obsessed with Ranbir like KJo. Talking about him everywhere.

      Her face looks different in different times,I guess it gets bloated when she has a fresh dose then shrinks back.in thugs the other three are so underwhelming that they had to resort to using katrinas dance to build up the hype.amitabh and aamir coming together for first time should have created enormous buzz,but it feels like dhoom 3.the only good thing about it was katrinas dance,the only saving grace in this film is katrinas sexuality,and her Indian wardrobe.and with Fatima I thought she was good and also pretty,but in this movie being the lead heroine she isn’t imposing enough.she lacks a strong screen presence.

    Trailer was ok. I like Anushka versatility and look. Kat is the same as usual with no expressions and looks. Her entry scene reminds me of deepika ‘s entry in cocktail. To add that, Kat has few scenes and only one line which is ruined by her terrible Hindi . Srk is decent . But Anushka surprised me.

      Compared to katrinas performances this was very very good.i think that’s what admin meant,not in comparison with other actresses but her own’s.she isn’t suited to Indian melodrama,she does well in the realistic namaste London,Zmnd kind of roles.and this one she plays the obnoxious snobbish superstar and to me she aced it.that expression when she looks at the fans with contempt looked good.either she was being herself and that’s why looks that she did good acting,or ansand l raj has been able to squeeze out an okay okay performance from her,like sonam in ranjhanna.if she has remotely managed to act maybe this film will be turning point in her career.she has sureshot blockbuster lined up so she can make hay while the sun shines.

      • golden girl says:

        I respect your opinion. But in this kat acting is the same. she never experiment with her looks and hair be it films or real life. Though I have to agree that she was good in namaste London, znmd and also in MBKD. I too feel she plays herself as she is known for her arrogance , cold attitude and thinks too high of herself. It just a natural expression. For me if Yash sir couldn’t make her act so how can Anand sir ? Sonam is a decent actress not bad. Of course she has blockbuster lined up but will she be credited for them? NO! TOH is all about men and her songs are really bad in that movie with bad moves and no expressions. Zero, she has limited screen space and have u seen how cringeworthy her dialogue was? Anushka is a great actress and the most impressive in this trailer. Kat is the weakest as compare to other star cast. Not to forgot half of the industry is doing the cameo in this movie. Abcd 3 is not that promising . Its all about dance and kat has a series of flop whenever she does films with young stars.

      I don’t think she ever looked for credibility or praise as an actress.her goal in life has always been financial stability and more and more money.i remember someone had asked her in 2008 why she doesn’t do namastey London kind of roles,she could choose good roles why did she go back to do mindless comedies with akshay.and does it matter if she never wins any award.she gave example or srk and salman,saying both are superstars but salman has never won Any award but that doesn’t make his stardom any less than srk.she did well till the time she had salmans’s guidance.i mean she was the highest paid in the industry,and was 9 in the Forbes list.rest all were men.she faltered when she lost salman,ranbir tried to influence her to sign movies where she could show her acting talent like himself.his career also nosedived,but Katrina should have realised he will keep getting movies unlike her.with her back to being in salman camp,she will be in top paid actress.in tiger she was paid 5-6 crores for six months of work.but she got a song,because of which she signed a 12 crores show where she had to work for 20 days.which is better option for her financially.the songs in zero and thugs will get her a lot of shows,as in lots of money,at this point she is looking for money and longevity rather than credibility as an actress.tabu is a terrific actress,but she also has to resort doing Golmaal type of films for survival.in the end money is important if you are an outsider.this film has an added benefit that she will receive some amount of praise rather than the usual negative reviews she gets.i saw tiger and with her limited acting abilities she did well.she received praise for her action scene,and I think because of the dance and action she will get cast in Krish 3.all top actresses have at some point tried at hit dance numbers,none of them succeeded.atleast this is one thing Katrina is best at.

      @lucy I completely agree with you here. If kat has work nicely she should be praised. I m not against anyone getting praised for their good work. I do praise ppl who I dislike for their good work and condemn a my favs for their bad work or wrong choices. I cant say about TZH as I haven’t seen it yet. its krrish 4. but I have heard PC is doing the film . Let see. kat is good at dancing but limited to one form.
