Best Indian commercials


I love Indian commercials :-)  Well, some are unimaginative too but others are really funny. Like these ones from State Farm.

This is one of my favorite Srk ads (for Pepsi). who can forget it…

or this with Uncle Shahrukh and Uncle John

ad for a permanent marker: (Camlin)

 

or these Fevikol glue commercials are cute

with Katrina Kaif:

and

do you have any others you can share with me?

How do you like your male BW stars, wrinkles or wrinkle-free?


Am I paranoid or do all the stars who gradually bend towards the half-century mark look stretched and unnatural? is that due to make-up, special effects, surgery, botox? all these nasty little cosmetic enhancement techniques circulating in Hollywood have crept into the lives of our male Bollywood stars. Used to be just steroids pumping up their muscles. and please I don’t want to know what side effects those have…but now all the plumping has invaded facial features, which equates with acting’s kiss of death. As you can’t properly use your muscles anymore, you fail inevitably to convey FEELINGS, likes, dislikes, joy sorrow anger… Faces have turned statuesque. You may think oh this person still looks GOOD for their age, but what happened to the ACTOR?

Salman Khan wrinkles only below his chin, Shahrukh’s face is so stretched that he starts resembling that weird Egyptian pharaoh..what’s his name, Akhenaten.

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Salman can jump and fight and dance and love and hate in Dabangg2, never moving one facial muscle.

Aamir, in Talaash, looks like his face was freshly ironed before every shoot. Oh how I wish we could go back to good old times when aging actors developed character and became more interesting in time BECAUSE their faces had trenches, lives fully lived. Their faces had stories to tell. It seemed they grew more complex.

Now everybody’s main focus is erasing time from their features. Sad and silly. I can understand fixing the hairline esthetically and watching out for the weight so you don’t walk around screen all flabby. But godforbid, leave the face alone!!! march into your middle age with your head held high.  Dignified. Not plastified.

There should be a law that prohibits actors to get surgically enhanced or photo-shopped.

For heaven’s sake be who you are, like a good old wine aged to perfection in old and smoky barrels of oak. Why to run from time as if it were our enemy? why not embrace every line in our face, testimony of sorrows and joys.

Un(sub)titled Jab Tak Hai Jaan


The waiting game for Shahrukh Khan fans is over! :-) Romance is back on track.

After excursions into the underworld, Asperger’s and doing penance as a bespectacled nerdy protagonist, Srk romances his ladies again (I am just assuming since I don’t understand a word he says there..) in the Yash Chopra  directorial production hitting the theaters November 13th. His fans will rejoice to see Shahrukh again in a romantically relatable role starring alongside Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma.

Shall we book the tickets now? :-)

 

But seriously, I hope this will be a good film and not just an homage to our superstar.

Yash Chopra has given us unforgettable Bollywood classics like Veer Zaara. Read up on his impressive bio.

 

Jab Tak Hai Jaan

Directed by: Yash Chopra
Produced by: Aditya Chopra
Music: A.R. Rahman
Lyrics: Gulzar

Get out the champagne. We got a title: Jab Tak Hai Jaan.


found in Times of India

Shahrukh’s and Katrina Kaif’s new movie was christened, or rather hindustanied. I thought it took so long because Yash Chopra is getting up in age and might have lost the notebook where he scribbled  “Find a title to the new movie I wrote and directed, nah, what was his name? Shahrukh. Yeah, Shahrukh and this beautiful girl. wait, her name is on my tongue…”

But no, I was told by my stern critic and blogfrenemy Shahid Shah (who keeps poking needles into my Achilles)  that it’s one of Yash’s old marketing gimmicks and dates back to Veer Zaara. Needless to say, I am glad it wasn’t Alzheimers responsible for the delay.  Now all I need is have someone translate the title…(maybe: Until I find a lover??)

Looking fwd to Jab Tak Hai Jaan.

 

Shahrukh suffering from Ladakh blues


 

19 Aug SHAH RUKH KHAN@iamsrk

All alone on Eıd…on a thın wındıng road. Nowhere and everywhere. Just gave myself a hug after a long tıme. Wıll celebrate wıth happy wınds

 

 

 

 

 

a day earlier he tweeted:

First day breathing is a problem in Ladakh. u can’t speak long sentences…actually…u can’t. write…long. sentences. either…gasp gasp.

 

environmental learning institute

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(I bet he lit a cigarette right after he tweeted that, which I don’t think is a good idea up there….)

 

 

 

 

OK,so  first of all let’s give him a group hug!  It sounds pretty much like he needs one.   And for good measure let’s blow him some happy winds! :-)

Poor Shahrukh, it’s the holidays blues.

 

Secondly, what I wanted to ask, what happened to the dots of the i?  too cold? they fell off? :-) I want to lose my dots too, they weigh me down all for sudden, and I am not even akeli in the Himalayas on Eid. are the dots supposed to make us happy? dotless looks like the new cool.

 

 

 

 

 

First trailer is out: Student of the Year


After Kuch Kuch Hota Hai,  Karan Johar’s first filmi baby in 1998, he  is ready to go back to school. Once again with Shahrukh, but this time as producer.

SOTY will be starring a bunch of newcomers.  Alia Bhatt’s got the acting bug running in her family. The other young actors, Varun Dhawan, Siddharth Malhotra and Kayoze Irani, actually,  all have Bollywood family ties.  So let’s just call it a family affair. :-)

Shirish Kunder can’t let it go…


Shirish Kunder gets on my case. It seems as if since slap-gate he’s harboring even deeper resentments. He is like one of these little vicious dogs who get hold of a passerby’s pants and don’t want to let go anymore…:-)

Shirish Kunder wants to get beaten up by Shahrukh Khan again?

Shirish wants to get beaten up by SRK again?

Movie DABANGG Success Party
It seems like Shirish Kunder has completely forgotten that he got beaten up by Shahrukh Khan for posting nasty comments on Twitter about Shahrukh’s movie Ra.One. Now, he has once again tweeted something that could provoke Shahrukh Khan to slap him one more time.

We Guess Shirish Kunder is not too happy with the Farah-Shahrukh Khan friendship. The editor turned director Shirish’s latest tweet is almost a dig at Shahrukh Khan.

Shirish recent post on Twitter reads, “A Kingmaker is always stronger than the King (sic).”

Even a child knows that Shahrukh Khan is known as the ‘King of Bollywood’ and it looks like Shirish is referring to himself when he says ‘Kingmaker.’

Not so long ago, Shirish Kunder had clarified on Twitter about his patch up with Shahrukh Khan, “Shah Rukh and I just met, had a heart to heart chat and have resolved all misunderstandings. All animosity is now sorted for good (sic).”

Wonder what went wrong this time?

Shirish…, Shahrukh Khan does not need to prove anything to anybody. He is a self made man and is the undisputed king of Bollywood. But you still need to prove yourself because till now your only claim to fame is your wife Farah Khan.

So, next time instead of your words let your work do the talking!
