ROHAN SIPPY : Next week due release Rohan Sippy’s English film “THE PRESIDENT IS COMING” starring Konkana Sen Shama had a trouble in Censor Board prior to it’s release. It all happened due to a dialogue in the film which says “If you want to be a press ofiicer, then you have to be scheduled caste. This is lower in status, but there are higher chances of getting a job…Reservations Na”.
The dialogue is spoken by a Maharashtrian in the film. Censor Board flet that this dialogue may create some unrest/ hungama among the various sections of the community, specially in view of the ongoing disturbed communal situation in Maharashtra. When Producer Rohan Sippy was told to act upon, which he agreed without any fuss. So the said dialogue will be shown inaudible to the audience, when the film releases.
This Rahman-Aamir collaboration seems to hit the bull’s eye once again. After churning out super Musical Hits - 'Rang De Basanti', 'Lagaan: Once Upon A Time In India' and 'Rangeela', they are back with latest “GHAJINI”.
Aamir Khan leaves no efforts in vain for his films and when it comes to his forthcoming Ghajini, the music by A.R. REHMAN is already creating waves.
The soundtrack contains – “GUZARISH, KAISE MUJHE, AYE BACHCHU, BEHKA, LATOO”.
GUZARISH sung by Javed Ali (JASHNE-E-BAHAARAN” fame) is a typical sweet Bollywood song, suiting perfectly to AAMIR’S VOICE.
Benny Dayal whose TU MERI DOST HAI is topping the charts has once again come good in KAISE MUJHE, which has a touch of Ismail Darbar.
AYE BACHCHU by Suzanne is a foot tapping rocking number for Dance Floors.
The surprise packet is LATOO sung by Shreya Ghosal, who shocks you rather surprises with this peppy number of Sunidhi Chauhan’s type.
BEHKA, sung by KARTHIKis a unique song by Rehman, and the antara portions are special.
Overall, Rehman is a winner once again and the music is certainly better than his recent works – Jodhaa Akbar, Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na & Yuvvraaj. Seems to be a blockbuster, once the film releases in December.
SAMIR KARNIK : Director Samir Karnik of recently release “HEROES” is on the top of the world, the reason being his film script has been invited by the OSCARS, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, for it’s Archives.
