Kashyap’s “Aiyaa” caters to the funny bone

I am delighted to see Rani Mukherjee back in the saddle, especially with my favorite filmmaker Anurag Kashyap.

But where is this movie coming from? it hits us like a comet that went undetected by all radars out there scanning our galaxy.

In the film Rani plays a Marathi Brahmin who falls for a Malayali artist, I guess that makes him Mr. Wrong,  played by Prithviraj.

It’s nice to see Anurag embracing comedy for a change. I thought that’s going to be Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana, with Kunal Kapoor, but that’s not even listed as his film anymore! So now I am very confused. The chicken crossed the road never to be seen again.. Instead we will get “Aiyaa” – not that I am complaining. But of course, I would have loved a  foodie movie from Kashyap. There are only a handful of those, but tons about marriage and mr. wrong. So maybe yes, I am a tad disappointed what concerns the fate of Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana, but I am at the same time looking forward to Aiyaa and Rani Mukherji.

anybody who has a clue about the whereabouts of Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana, please, in the name of all foodie movie lovers, enlighten us…

  1. LUV SHUV TEY CHICKEN KHURANA was always supposed to be a joint Production by Anurag Kashyap & UTV. He was never attached to Direct. It will be released November 2nd, 2012.
    Same with AIYYA, you realize it’s not directed by Anurag Kashyap right? Only produced.

    Again, a simple Google search could have provided you with all of this.

      • No you did not. However, when you’re talking about both films as Anurag Kashyap’s, and applauding him for going into comedies, and trying this and that, you’re implying that he’s the Director. Maybe it wasn’t intentional, but that’s how it comes off.

        The content of the movie, is directly attributed to the Director then Writer. Not the Producer. So neither of the above movies are ‘Kashyap’s, in terms of content or execution. ROWDY RATHORE was produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Do you claim him to be ’embracing’ cheesy masala action movies?

      • He was mentioned as “creative producer – whatever that means, which I interpret as having a say as to what goes into the movie and what not, but I am not familiar with the process of filmmaking. so it’s just a guess.

  2. Producer’s input in a movie is determined based on the relationship they have with the Director and overall project. The Producer is the boss, as he employs everyone (including Director) and puts up the cash for the whole project. Some Producers control everything, (Vidhu Vinod Chopra: MUNNABHAI, 3 IDIOTS) others trust their Directors completely and let them go their thing, (Ajay Devgan: GOLMAAL, John Abraham: VICKY DONOR, (bet you didn’t know that one), Sohail Khan: DABANNG, Karan Johar: KAL HO NAA HO, etc).

    Usually the content, style, performances, execution of the story, are all credited to the Director. Even though others like Writer, Cinematographer, Music Director, Editor, etc are responsible for a LOT… in the end, they’re all coordinating with the Director who decides how to let all those others to their jobs. So he’s credited or blamed for the success or downfall of a film.

    Pay attention to Producer / Writer / Assistant Director Credits. Some of those guys move through the Industry to do big things.
    FYI: Anurag Kashyap, wrote SATYA, directed by Ram Gopal Varma which helped put him on the map. ;)
