Thugs Of Hindostan song Suraiyya teaser: Unlike her looks, Katrina Kaif’s dance moves are more CRAZY than sensuous – watch video

Thugs Of Hindostan releases on November 8 in Thailand.

After unveiling the first song Vashmalle featuring Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan, the makers of Thugs Of Hindostan have now dropped the teaser of the second song which is titled Suraiyya. Goes without saying, Katrina Kaif is the centre of attraction, as she plays the role of Suraiyya in the film. The actress looks drop dead gorgeous in the teaser and we want the full song to be out ASAP! However, her dance moves leave us disappointed, as they are more crazy than sensuous. Kat made everyone whistle out loud with her scintillating moves in Chikni Chameli and Sheela Ki Jawaani, but we wonder if she would be able to do the same with this number or not. Well, we are not judging the book by its cover and hence are waiting for the complete song to be out.

Suraiyya jaan lene to aa rahi hai, but we are not sure if she would kill us with her moves or not. Anyway, talking about the song, it is crooned by Vishal Dadlani and Shreya Ghosal. It has been composed by Ajay-Atul and the lyrics of the song are penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya. Backed by Yash Raj Films and directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, Thugs Of Hindostan, is scheduled to release on November 8.

Movie Review: 102 Not Out


Can a film where the screen age of the leading men is supposed to be 102 and 75 respectively ever be called a coming-of-age film? Well, after watching Umesh Shukla’s 102 Not Out, you’ll say it’s possible. You’ll realise that growing up is an ongoing process and it has nothing to do with age. You should keep evolving, keep growing and not let life pass you by. It’s a simple yet powerful message that we should all take care to remember at all the stages of life.
Amitabh Bachchan plays Dattatraya Vakharia, a 102 year old man whose heart is still in his 20s. His son, Babulal Vakharia, played by Rishi Kapoor, is 75 and has accepted his age. Both father and son are widowers and lead a solitary existence in their sprawling bungalow. They have completely opposite viewpoints when it comes to looking at life. While the father wants to lead life as if there’s no tomorrow, taking each moment as it comes, the son is a hypochondriac who has set views about everything. They bicker constantly but share tremendous love and respect towards each other, all the same. One day, Dattatraya decides that Babulal needs to change his attitude towards life and become ‘young’ again. What misadventures befall them during this journey forms the crux of the film.
The film, adapted from a popular Gujarati play going by the same name written by Saumya Joshi, comes alive through its writing. The situations in the film are plausible and are taken from real life. We all have grown up experiencing the eccentricities of grandparents and great-grandparents and hence the film definitely strike a chord. You smile, you laugh because you’re reliving something similar that you’ve seen or heard. Then, today’s I-Me-Myself generation may be aloof towards their parents but earlier there was a genuine bond between father and sons and the film is bang on projecting that. The affection isn’t forced but real.
Both Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor are on equal footing in the film. Apart from showcasing genuine chemistry in their scenes together, each gets a chance to bring to light individual brilliance. If there is a flaw in their otherwise superlative performances, it’s in keeping true to the Gujarati accent. They both drop it in some of the scenes. You feel as if they are conscious of maintaining the accent and that’s holding them somehow from breaking free. One can make out the difference in Bachchan’s monologue or Rishi Kapoor’s scene in the climax where they have just gone with the flow without caring for the accents. Mumbai is a cosmopolitan city and people from all corners of India have settled here. They could just have been a North Indian or a Punjabi family for that matter — perhaps that milieu would have given the two aces more room to play around with. The other very minor flaw is the complete lack of a female presence. You don’t even get to see photos of their dead wives. Also, you want to know more about what turned Bachchan into this wise man who is so full of life. You want to know what kind of existence he lead before he became 102 — what profession did he belong to, his relationship with his wife, with his siblings… the complete picture is missing. Considering the whole film is basically an interplay of memories — why do we only get to see Rishi Kapoor’s memories and not Bachchan’s?
However, all these are minor quibbles and would only have mattered if the film had starred lesser actors than Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor. All writing is open to interpretation by the actors and when you take stalwarts like Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor you can be assured that they’ll rise above the call of duty to elevate the film. The duo share a professional relationship going back years and have been friends since forever. That camaraderie shines through in the film. It’s basically a two character film and most of it is just them talking about the past and ruminating about the present but you never get bored. 102 Not Out is an acting primer really for the young generation of actors who should all watch it toCan a film where the screen age of the leading men is supposed to be 102 and 75 respectively ever be called a coming-of-age film?

‘102 Not Out’ FIRST LOOK out: Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor’s old avatars are too adorable to miss!

Big B will be seen playing a 102 year old father to a 75 year-old Rishi in the movie…

\

The makers of the film 102 Not Out have unveiled the first look of the film that stars Amitabh Bachchan as a 102 year old dad to his 75 year old son played by Rishi Kapoor. Going by the first look of the film, both the actors look too adorable in their respective ‘old’ avatars.

102 Not Out will be their first outing together in the last 26 years. The movie is supposed to be a romantic comedy-drama based on the plot of a Gujarati play by Soumya Joshi.

The actors have started shooting for the film and hence the makers decided to give us a glimpse into their characters. While this won’t be the first time both of them will be seen in aged characters. While Rishi Kapoor nailed his grandpa act in Kapoor & Sons, Big B has played an aged father in Piku.

A Mumbai Mirror report quoted the film’s director Umesh as saying, “Amitji and Rishiji are collaborating after 26 years. They are playing Gujarati characters for the first time. Being a Gujarati myself, I had certain references in my mind which we used to create their look. The film went on floors on Wednesday as they shot Big B’s introductory scene. The cast and crew will be shooting for the film all over Mumbai till May end and directly resume in July. Umesh and his team wish to wrap the film by July end. From all that has been revealed, it’s a love story between a father and a son.”

Rishi Kapoor even took to his Twitter account and wrote, “Wonderful to work again with the Legendary Amitabh Bachchan. Thank you Amitji, it never felt the 26 years old hiatus.We connected instantly!”
