Filmmaker Vipul Amrutlal Shah, who has worked worked with Akshay Kumar in films such as Waqt: The Race Against Time and Singh Is Kinng, chose to work with debutant Vidyut Jamwal in his recently released film, Commando. But for Commando 2, Shah will collaborate with his favourite actor Akshay again, however in a different way. Currently shooting with Akshay, Shah plans to bring him into the sequel of Commando as a consultant and adviser.
“Akshay is the best action hero in the country. He was the most excited when we started Commando with Vidyut and, in fact, we’d have liked Akshay to participate more in Commando. But he was busy. Now in Commando 2, we definitely intend to bring Akshay in,” said Shah.
About his equation with Akshay, he said, “Akshay and I don’t need to explain our association to the cynics and trouble-makers. I am not insecure about him at all. Our relationship has withstood the test of time.”
As for his next directorial venture, Shah says, “We are working on a project that I will direct. But at the moment, I am on the locations of the Hindi remake of Tamil hit Thupakki.” The original film was directed by A R Murugadoss. “Director Murugadoss is completely capable of looking after the project. But as the producer, I have to be there to ensure that my director’s vision is not compromised in any way,” he adds.
With a tighter script and an uncompromising vision, he might've knocked this one right out of the park. At the moment though, it's an easy but forgettable watch.
GTPM is not a colossal failure, but let’s just say I wouldn’t insist you hit the theatre if you’ve got other plans for your weekend.
It takes giant reserves of patience to survive a film as bizarre as Rajjo. Watching this movie, you have to wonder what exactly might have tempted an actress of Kangana Ranaut's caliber to commit to it.
The tagline on the film's poster reads: A major film for the masses and the classes. This isn't savoury for anyone.
It's great fun - not the word you'd normally associate with a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film.
'Besharam' appears to be rolling out rather than unfolding, with not one actor so much as pretending to have a good time.
Debutante Raashi Khanna, who plays John Abraham's wife in "Madras Cafe", found it challenging to portray a character older than her.
