By Subhash K Jha: 2012 spawned some sexily
unorthodox surprises at the box-office. 2013 promises the same. And some more.
What with acknowledged movie making maestros like Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Rakeysh
Omprakash Mehra and Prakash Jha returning to the marquee. Here's looking at the
movies that are worth their wait in gold.
Krissh 3: Ideally sequels, and sequels to sequels are a complete put-off,
what with them relying more on nostalgia value than intrinsic merit. And many of
them are completely unrelated. But Rakesh Roshan's next installment of the
Krissh saga, scheduled for a Diwali release, promises to get only bigger
brighter bouncier than the earlier installments. While Hrithik Roshan reprises
the super-hero role Vivek Oberoi plays the super-villain. Producer-director
Rakesh Roshan promises the stunts would take Indian cinema to the Hollywood
level. Fingers crossed,breath bated.
Ram Leela: Two years after the under-valued Guzaarish master-creator
Sanjay Leela Bhansali returns to his Gujarati roots for a Gujju rendering of
Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet with oodles of colours, vivacity and flamboyance.
Bhansali admits for now he's done with films about physically and emotionally
disabled characters. Ram Leela is a happy, feisty and, ummmm, tasty take on a
love tale that refuses to get wrinkled. Deepika Padukone as 'Leela' Juliet and
Ranveer Singh as 'Ram' Romeo would take their promising careers to the next
level with this eye-catching feast of music, dances and songs (composed by
director Bhansali himself). The film also stars that supremely talented spunky
siren Richa Chadha from Gangs Of Wasseypur and has been shot in Kutch. Expected
to be released in July-August.
Zanjeer: Telugu star Ramcharan Teja makes his Hindi debut in
Amitabh Bachchan's career-defining role from the 1973 blockbuster of the same
title. Director Apoorva Lakhia has completely revamped the original, changed the
characterizations drastically. Sanjay Dutt's Sher Khan (played by Pran
in the original), Priyanka Chopra's Mala (Jaya Bhaduri in the original) and
Mahie Gill's Mona Darling (the overblown Bindu) are completely unrecognizable.
That's the beauty of a remake, no?
Dhoom 3: The Dhoom franchise strikes
again, this time bringing together the never-before jodi of Aamir Khan and
Katrina Kaif. Need we say any more? The third installment of the Dhoom series is
directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya whose only other film Tashan's only claim to
fame is that it brought together Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor. Hopefully,
this one will have a lot more to offer than just a platform for real-life
liaisons. Katrina's action scenes and Aamir's full-on villainy should make this
one a winner.
