The movie talks about sports used as a medium to bring the two brothers together. Sports and Music are the passion that we share! The movie is awesome, not because of the awards it has already won, but because of the timing. It will be released when Aman Ki Asha is in the air.
LAHORE is a compelling tale set against the backdrop of competitive sports on the international arena. The story revolves around the potentially portentous lives of two brothers from Rajasthan. When fate takes them on a convoluted path that challenges the bedrock of all that they believe to be good and decent in human behavior, life-changing choices have to be made that will bring either sorrow or absolution. Deep emotions are evident in the movie when interactions between citizens of two nations, which fought three wars, are shown.(www.glamsham.com)
So a game of kick boxing eh? Who is gonna win? India? Pakistan? Indians and Pakistanis will watch it for sure. Some may like it, few may hate it. If it talks about peace, it will be used as a tool to spread peace. Why not? Anything that can be done to improve the relationship should be done. So, talking of the winner. I think both the countrymen will take out their hard-earned money to watch this movie and to witness the winner. No the winner is not India, not even Pakistan. No, winner is not even the game of kickboxing. No, not even “peace” or “friendship”. THE WINNER IS GONNA BE HOLLYWOOD! Yes, It’s a Warner Bros. production! Long live Hollywood! Long live USA! 🙂
Teen Patti brings together a world renowned mathematician Perci Tratchtenberg (Ben Kingsley) and Venkat (Amitabh Bachchan), a brilliant mathematician from India.
At a casino in London, the two geniuses meet. Venkat ignites Perci’s curiosity when he reveals that he has come across a theory that questions the existing principles of probability and randomness.
He decides to apply this discovery in the real world on Teen Patti (a poker game). Along with Shantanu (Madhavan), Sid (Siddharth Kher), Bikram (Dhruv Ganesh), Abbas (Vaibhav Talwar) and Aparna (Shraddha Kapoor) – he hits the gambling dens in Mumbai.
But brilliance comes with a price that threatens to destroy him.
The story is assumed/rumored to be based on the fight between Raj and Uddhav Thackarey. Trailers are very impressive (but even a flop movies have impressive trailers, so it does not satisfy the criteria for being one). But one thing is very impressive, the songs and the lyrics. I am sure, being a marathi film, it wont be having special effects, mind blowing animation, huge and gigantic sets, great and famous actors. Marathi film industry(yes, there is one) does not have money. It is running way below the poverty line. But it has one thing, rich culture, creativity, which I feel, every Indian has! And so, the industry will come up on its own.
On the other side, it is good that their budget is low, this way, they are compelled to make good movies. Lets now divert from the topic (I have practiced this line so much, that I use it almost every day, even if I have no other topic to divert to). So our topic is “Marathi V/S Marathi”. It is very famous and obvious from the history that Marathi people pulls each others’ leg. Take it Raj v/s Uddhav or Anil v/s Mukesh (see, you have to become marathi and behave like one if you are in Maharashtra :-P). The same thing created the film (just assuming) and the same thing is creating controversy. MNS has not approved the movie and is going against the movie creating controversy. There will be fights at theaters.
But today, for the film to be successful for the first weekend (at least), controversies are required as a catalyst. So, is MNS trying to help the movie? Whatever it is, if it is a good movie, it will surely do well.
All the best!
“This is a film of today’s Marathi (from Maharashtra state) youth, Marathi ‘yuva’ (youth). It is a fact that that when you watch the film, you can relate a few characters with respected Uddhav-sahib Thackeray and Raj-sahib Thackeray, and a few more. But you will realize that this plot, this concept or this story could have happened in any other plot, like you are asking me about Shiv Sena or MNS; this could have happened in some other political party, also,” said Avdhoot Gupte, who is also the producer of the movie.
“It is about today’s youth of Maharashtra, his dreams, his attitude towards his life, his ideologies, and you know, his overall attitude of looking at his own country – Maharashtra – and his own progress,” he claims.
The film is slated for release on January 08, 2010, in theatres across Maharashtra state.
