Trailer Tuesday

So even though I haven't been able to watch many movies lately, the desire to see what's coming up is still there. Here's a look at some of the film's coming out that I am looking forward to seeing.

Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey
Release Date: December 3

There's going to be big buzz surrounding Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey, I can just imagine. Ashutosh Gowariker, who is to me one of Hindi's best directors - certainly he has the midas touch after such completely brilliant films like Swades and Lagaan and the ethereal beauty of Jodhaa Akbar. My only concern is, no matter how good the director is, the sum of the parts equal the whole and if he couldn't make a film with Harman Baweja work, I don't know if I should hold my breath for Deepika. However, I have always liked Abhishek and it will be interesting to see what Ashutosh can bring out of him.

Action Replayy
Release Date: November 3

Vipul Amrutlal Shah heads back to his Akshay roots for this fun and visually stimulating comedy set in one of the best eras ever - the 70's! The hair, the fashion, the music - I ADORE it all, plus we get a bit of Back to the Future vibe with this, so the possibilities for hilarity are endless. Also any movie with the absolutely amazing Kirron Kher wins points automatically in my books. Can not wait!!!

Break Ke Baad
Release Date: November 26

I'm not sure if I'm a bit of a masochist, and god help me, but I am a romantic comedy junkie. I'm fairly certain this movie isn't going to have much of a story, and Deepika looks like she's rehashed her Love AajKal 2-dimensional insipid avatar, but I have a small soft spot for cutie Imran Khan, and there are moments in the trailer that look so awwwwwww worthy. Besides if I can sit through such Hollywood junk like All About Steve, Break Ke Baad deserves my attention.

Release Date: November 13

The thing about initial trailers is that they are so vague. What is this movie about? Some say a remake of Prestige (which is a bunch of bunk. Except for the magical elements I don't see the resemblance at all). It looks like the love story of a retired magician (due to an accident caused by an illusion gone wrong?) with his nurse. There must be more, but love stories on their own are enough sometimes for a great movie. I have to admit, Sanjay Leela Bhansali is not one of my favorite directors, and Devdas remains at the bottom of my fav Shah movie list *insert gasp here*. However, Aish and Hrithik are pure magic together (someone please PLEASE for the love of god to a Mr. & Mrs. Smith remake with them), and I expect that they will not let their fans down this time ether. And if all else fails, Bhansali always gives us beautiful looking movies, so it will be a feast for the eyes nonetheless.

Well, that's it for now. Now that Christmas designing is done, I can finally breath again and a movie night (or two) is definitely in order. Somehow I need to make a dent in this pile of movies on my shelf.

    Well Break Ke Baad looks like the best one of that bunch to me. And I'm totally intrigued by Guzaarish.

    Not Action Replayy?!! It is the one I want to see the most. Pure fun!

    I'm a little leary of the rest, but there doesn't seem to be much else coming out that I'd see. The countdown to will be on soon.

    Me too for Break Ke Baad! Imraan isn't one of my favorites and neither is Deepika, but this certainly looks interesting. As to Aish-Hrithik - they're probably the prettiest onscreen pair ever, but I was so disappointed by Jodha Akbar that I am not going to expect anything from their future films (now if only I could convince myself of that!) especially when Bhansali is involved.

    PS: My word verification is "piginguf" - does that mean I've been pigging on movies?! ;D

    I also belong to the camp that didn't completely love Jodha Akbar (though I did think it was pretty), but I agree - it's Bhansali!

    lol at your word verification. I think it's likely that your could be! I often get words that look like they could be Hindi and it makes me smile.
