Director Rohit Shetty is banking on another 100 Crore (roughly $17.2 million) smash hit in his latest film ‘Chennai Express‘ featuring Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone.  The film is the first re-teaming of the legendary SRK and Deepika since 2007’s hit ‘Om Shanti Om‘.  Deepika, for one, feels much more at ease around SRK and says that this time the two interact “more freely”.

Hot on the tail of summer comedy sequel The Hangover 3, Bollywood is adding it’s own sequel to the mix with ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana 2‘ coming out on June 7th as we hit the middle of the busy summer movie season. Living Bollywood Legend Dharmendra stars in this light-hearted romp with his sons Sunny and Bobby Deol. The film marks the third collaboration between the trio after their earlier hits Apne’ and the original 2011 hit ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana.’

Bobby Deol romances Neha Sharma in an interesting homage to Salman Khan by imitating his dance moves in the number ‘Changli Hai.’  Let’s take a look at the number composed by Sharib Sabri and Toshi Sabri as sung by duo Mika and Shreya Ghoshal:

 

Let’s not forget about the women in this movie as Neha Sharma and Kristina Akheeva play the beauties that Sunny and Bobby Deol fall in love with.

Not bad at all, besides the comedy in ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana 2’ these women alone should make the film worth the price of admission!  I’ll leave you with a trailer for the film:

‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ Set to Open on May 31st!

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is set to open on May 31st after a slight delay from its original opening date of March 2013.  The Bollywood Romantic film stars Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone as the leads, Adita Roy Kapur and Kalki Koechlin in supporting roles, and a special guest appearance by Madhuri Dixit in the dance numbers.  This is Ranbir Kapoor’s second time with director Ayan Mukerji following their initial pairing in the 2008 hit Bachna Ae Haseeno. Multi-talented director, producer, screenwriter, costume designer, television host, actor Karan Johar limited himself to producing this time out.

Deepika Padukone is especially keen on the movie being a smash hit after having beat out Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma for the lead female role, declaring “I need to topple my previous best with Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.” Deepika is Ranbir’s ex-girlfriend so they should have onscreen chemistry by the boatload!  Although Ranbir and Deepika are the leads, seemingly timeless Madhuri Dixit may have stolen the show!!!

Let’s take a look at a the song ‘Ghagra’ featuring both Dixit and Kapoor:

 

Madhuri Dixit definitely adds a touch of classic Bollywood allure to the number and still has moves that would shame a woman half her age…. Not bad for someone who just turned 46!!

The soundtrack was composed by Pritam with lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya and the film itself was shot in exotic locales including Udaipur, Rajistan, Paris, and Kashmir.

The film itself centers around the travels of a group of friends and the fun adventure they encounter along the way.

Let’s hope the film is half as fun as the trailer promises…..

‘Mission: Impossible 5’ Confirmed

Mission: Impossible 5 has been confirmed with Tom Cruise again tackling the iconic role of Ethan Hunt.  No writers or directors are attached to the project yet but expect Star Trek’s J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions to be involved once again with Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions along for the ride as well.  The last installment of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol was the highest grossest one yet, earning almost $700 million worldwide, and has the distinction of being the highest grossing Cruise picture of all time, with the entire Mission Impossible film franchise having earned over $2 billion worldwide to date.  If you can recall, Cruise’s original turn as Ethan Hunt in the first Mission: Impossible was all the way back in 1996 and that film was based on the original 1966 TV series so this is a property that definitely has some legs!

In the Mission: Impossible series Cruise often does his own stunts,including running across the Burj Al Dubai for Ghost Protocol as seen in this incredible video, especially amazing considering the man’s 50!

I’ll leave you with this rather funny Ben Stiller/MTV Movie Awards spoof on Tom Cruise and Mission Impossible that includes the man himself, at least he has a good sense of humor about it all…

In non-sequel news, the Movie Don is looking forward to seeing Matt Damon star in Neil Blomkamp’s highly anticipated followup to his blockbuster District 9 called Elysium.  The sci-fi pic is set in a dystopian future and is slated to release this summer on August 9th.
