When Preity Zinta was conned

Her super star status aside, Preity is just like any other working woman. In fact, when she gets the time, she actually goes shopping for vegetables to the local market! One of her favorite haunts is Bandra’s Pali Naka area, which is close to her house. This is the place from where she picks up her vegetable and herbs, quite often.

Just having completed the shoot of Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, she was in town, recently. And having some time to herself, she set out shopping for some bhaji. And this time she didn’t bargain at all! She has quite an interesting theory. According to her, those who cheat her will be taught a lesson by their karma.

Now, clearly the actress who has been hopping across one nation to the other, would not really be aware of the local vegetable rates! Earlier, the vendors would quote a higher price and con her! Her maid would always tell her that she has been cheated! So she would always get upset. But now with her new theory, Preity has no cause for concern! What goes around comes around, is the new mantra!

Krrish - Melodious, soulful and simple music


First quarter of 2006 has been simply phenomenal for Bollywood lovers! Number of music albums ranging from 'Rang De Basanti', 'Aksar', 'Gangster', 'Humko Deewana Kar Gaye', 'Tom Dick and Harry', '36 China Town', 'Fanaa' and many more have turned out to be super successful. Now add 'Krrish' to the list! Rajesh Roshan, who more or less selectively works for his brother's films now, composes for 'Krrish' and results are there to be seen....yet again! Nasir Faraaz writes three songs while Ibraheem Ashq and Vijay Akela chip in with a song apiece.

Shreya Ghoshal, who has fast become a favorite amongst the composers looking for a sweet-n-simple voice, sings as many as three out of five prime tracks in the album. Melodious to the core, the way Sonu Nigam begins singing 'Pyaar Ki Ek Kahani'; it seems tailor-made for Shahrukh Khan himself. This is undoubtedly one of the best rendered songs of Sonu after the brilliance he showed in the title song of 'Kal Ho Na Ho'. There are slight shades of 'Usse Hasna Bhi Hoga, Usse Rona Bhi Hoga' from the title song of Salman-Rani-Preity starrer 'Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega' when the lines 'Wo Bhi Hansne Lahi Thi, Ye Bhi Hasne Laga Tha; Dono Samjhe Nahi They Wo Jo Jone laga Tha' come, but one doesn't really mind that as the song is still extremely enjoyable. Yes, it takes some time for this Ibraheem Ashq song to grow and it's only after you have heard it 5-10 times that you actually start humming it along while it is played. Along with Sonu, Shreya Ghoshal easily takes the same route as Alka Yagnik does in her romantic numbers and comes quite close to her in terms of class, quality and style. A number that should be in Top 3 charts soon!
It's time for melody to continue making its presence felt in Nasir Faraaz written 'Koi Tumsa Nahin', again a duet by Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal. For anyone who has been following Hindi music for last three decades, it won't require him/her to even look at the credits and still attribute the song to Rajesh Roshan. If the movie would have stuck to its original title of 'Koi..Tumsa Nahin' before moving to 'Krrish', this track would well have been the title song of the film. A trademark simple number with ear friendly musical arrangements set on a strong Indian base, it is a good fusion of 'geet' and 'ghazal' that makes it a second good song in succession. The beats are really catchy [belonging to true Rajesh Roshan style] and one can expect Hrithik to be showing his dancing prowess to a good extent. Proceedings get all jazzed up with the sound of piano, saxophone and other western classical instruments in its Big Band mix that completely changes the mood, feel and style of the track. Set as a jazz number, it is enjoyable in this new version as well!

Udit Narayan comes on the scene [for the first and the only time] in the album with 'Chori Chori Chupke Chupke' that fits well with the 'hill station' setting of the movie, as far as portions shot in India are concerned. A song based on 'pahadi' music that comes to you like a cool breeze, one just falls in love with the music by Rajesh Roshan. Starting with the sound of flute, it successfully takes you to the scenic locations once you close your eyes. Third song in a row that is completely based on 'hindustani' music with zero western influences to it, 'Chori Chori' is as simple as it gets, both in terms of music and lyrics. Udit Narayan is just the perfect choice for the song while Shreya Ghoshal is extremely competent and justifies her continued presence in the big league. Nasir Faraaz comes up with simple lyrics that make the track a beautiful song to sing around, but in the end it is Rajesh Roshan who is THE person who should be attributed for making it sound extremely enjoyable and lovely.

There is an extended orchestra [set in western mode] that escalates gradually after it has begun on a near silent note and it's after a while before Rafaqat Ali Khan arrives with 'Main Hoon Wo Aasmaan'. A Nasir Faraaz song that should be picturized on the superhuman character of 'KRRISH', as conveyed by the haunting feel of the tune that slowly converges into the world of mystic! A situational theme song that has Alka Yagnik giving company to Rafaqat, it moves at an extremely slow pace and is somewhat unconventional when it comes to a typical Bollywood score. The only song in the album that sounds dull when compared to the rest of the album that has a peppy touch to it with a feel good effect, the track also appears in 'A Mystic Love Mix'. The intention is right since the film has a mystic feel to it and the song begins with an extended 'aalap' with western musical arrangements in tow hence giving it a fusion feel to it. The dullness of the original song makes way for a perky remix that turns out to be a little better and more enjoyable.

The funk of 'It's Magic [Koi...Mil Gaya]' coming close to the musical arrangement of 'Le Gayi Le Gayi [Dil To Paagal Hai]' - that's the way to describe 'Dil Na Diya'. But unlike numerous other numbers where inspiration comes quite close to copying, 'Dil Na Diya' stays away from the temptation and maintains an identity of its own. A fast dance track that is tailor-made for Hrithik to come up with his varied [and unique] dance steps, it is a simple feel good number that may not boast of extraordinary lyrics by Vijay Akela but should still do well since one can easily expect some great choreography and picturization. The song does have slight musical shades of 'Jeene Ke Bahane Lakhon Hain' from Roshan's own 'Khoon Bhari Maang' but that is more due to composer's touch rather than a copy/lift. Overall the song remains firmly rooted to melody as Kunal Ganjawala comes up with yet another spirited rendition.

Melodious, soulful, simple and belonging to the genre that appeals across the nation, the music from KRRISH is another winner in the making! Highly melodious numbers like 'Chori Chori', 'Koi Tumsa Nahi' and 'Pyaar Ki Ek Kahani' are the pick of the lot, in that order, followed by dance number 'Dil Na Diya'. A musical score that can be conveniently added to your already-piling-up-collection in 2006, the music album of 'KRRISH' is another good outing for Bollywood music lovers.







Darna Zaroori Hai - Review

Three years ago, Ramgopal Varma triggered off an experiment. He combined six different stories in one film called DARNA MANA HAI. Continuing with the 'Darna' series, he narrates six different stories once again in his new outing DARNA ZAROORI HAI. The difference this time is that the six stories are directed by six different directors, unlike the first attempt that had one director [Prawal Raman] calling the shots.

Tales about the unknown and the mysterious always hold an attraction for the audience. But for any horror film to scare the living daylights out of the viewer, it ought to be embellished with blood curdling and spine chilling stories. That's the prime area where DARNA ZAROORI HAI falters.

Of the six stories that are juxtaposed in the new 'Darna' exercise, only one comes across as an eerie experience [Randeep Hooda, Zakir Hussain; dir.: Chekeravarthy], while two pass muster [Anil Kapoor, Mallika Sherawat; dir.: Jijy Philip / Arjun Rampal, Bipasha Basu, Makrand Deshpande; dir.: Prawal Raman]. The remaining three stories and also the story that binds them in a thread, of an old woman and five children, try hard to terrify and frighten the viewer, but in vain.

Let's get this straight. 'Scary' is too strong a word for DARNA ZAROORI HAI. The film doesn't even succeed in sending a slight shiver down your spine. Coming from the maker of spell-binding horror stories like RAAT and BHOOT, DARNA ZAROORI HAI is as forgettable as a week-old newspaper.

Story 1
Actor: Manoj Pahwa. Director: Sajid Khan.
Pahwa is a film buff. He watches every new release in the night show on the first day itself. Just as he readies himself to visit a nearby theatre to catch the new release DARNA MANA HAI, his mother cautions him against taking the route via the graveyard. Pahwa dismisses his mother's plea since he doesn't believe in ghosts. On his way back, he dies of cardiac failure outside the graveyard.

An interesting story, it keeps your interest alive till Pahwa decides to take the same route on his way back. The sequences in the theatre are hilarious. But the culmination to the plot is hardly scary. Ideally, the story could've done with a fear-provoking end. Pahwa works, but the story doesn't. Sajid shows signs of a fine director.

Story 2
Actors: Amitabh Bachchan, Ritesh Deshmukh. Director: Ramgopal Varma.
An aged professor [Bachchan] believes there's someone in his house. At times, the 'invisible person' rushes to the kitchen. Sometimes, he makes himself comfortable on the chair. Is the professor hallucinating? The professor tries to explain the situation to his student [Ritesh], who revolts and in fact advices him to seek psychiatric help. The 'invisible man' finally appears in the mirror.

Technically, this isn't a scary story; it has more of shock-value. Also, it doesn't create much of an impact. It tries to build the tension, but to no avail. The only time you get a jolt is when the 'invisible man' appears in the mirror. Bachchan and Ritesh are sincere, but RGV's choice of the story is a downer.

Story 3
Actors: Arjun Rampal, Bipasha Basu, Makrand Deshpande. Director: Prawal Raman.
One fateful night, a stranger [Arjun] knocks on the doors of a secluded bungalow. His car has had a breakdown, he needs a mechanic, he ought to make a phone call. The couple [Bipasha, Makrand] living in this house is eccentric. Both constantly try to scare Arjun. When Arjun states that he doesn't believe in ghosts and spirits, Makrand decides to call the spirits. There's a knock on the door and the spirit refuses to go back.

The story has its moments. In fact, there are times when the viewer gets startled. Even the culmination to the story is unexpected. But the problem is that it takes too much time to reach the peak. Arjun is quite effective, while Bipasha and Makrand are satisfactory. Prawal's storytelling is better this time.

Story 4
Actors: Suniel Shetty, Sonali Kulkarni, Rajpal Yadav. Director: Vivek Shah.
A Maharashtrian couple [Suniel, Sonali] have an unexpected visitor in the form of a weird salesman [Rajpal Yadav]. He claims to be an insurance agent, but in actuality he's a thief who wants to rob the couple. In the melee that follows, Rajpal pulls the trigger of the pistol and bang!

Hello, how did this story merit a place in a horror film? Nothing wrong with the story per se, but the writer should be reminded that this is a horror film. In actuality, this one only carries a simple message: Never let a stranger in. Even Suniel and Rajpal's decent work fail to infuse life.

Story 5
Actors: Anil Kapoor, Mallika Sherawat. Director: Jijy Philip.
A leading film-maker [Anil] wants to change lanes. After making a couple of family dramas, he is keen to make a horror film next. He decides to write the concluding portions of his script at his bungalow in Khandala. En route, he spots a lone lady [Mallika] and offers to give her a lift till Khandala. When they reach the film-maker's bungalow, the lady tells him that she's a ghost who had died on the Mumbai-Pune highway.

The conversation between Anil and Mallika in the car first and sequences in the bungalow next are involving. The story holds your attention till Mallika reveals her gameplan, of wanting to kill Anil. But the moment she reveals the truth -- she's only an aspiring actress, trying to impress the film-maker to bag the assignment -- the viewer is left with the feeling that the director has taken him [viewer] for a ride. Anil is passable, while Mallika is efficient. Jijy is letdown by the writing!

Story 6
Actors: Randeep Hooda, Zakir Hussain, Rasika Joshi. Director: Chekeravarthy.
On a rainy night, a young man [Randeep] accidentally bumps into a woman. He is petrified. The next morning, when he opens his eyes, he finds himself in the police lock-up. He is accused of murdering a man. He claims he's innocent. The cop [Zakir] refuses to buy the story. The mother of the victim [Rasika] arrives at the police station. And skeletons tumble out of the cupboard.

Truly, the best story of the enterprise. The entire track keeps you on the edge. The lengthy conversation between Randeep and Rasika first and Zakir and Rasika subsequently is brilliant. Chekeravarthy is in full form. Randeep, Zakir and Rasika excel.

Story 7
The old lady and five children. Director: Manish Gupta.
Five kids take shelter in a dilapidated bungalow. There's an old woman in the house. She starts narrating stories. Slowly, the kids die of shock one after the other. Without doubt, the worst part of the enterprise. Unimaginative writing, lackluster direction.

On the whole, DARNA ZAROORI HAI lacks the power to scare, frighten, terrify and petrify. In fact, it's as ineffectual as its predecessor DARNA MANA HAI. At the box-office, a major disappointment!

The Mistress of Spices - Spiceless (Review)

After collaborating with wife Gurinder Chadha on BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM and BRIDE AND PREJUDICE, screenwriter Paul Mayeda Berges makes his directorial debut with THE MISTRESS OF SPICES. Starring Aishwarya Rai and Dylan McDermott and armed with a premise that has potential to appeal to the East and West audiences both, THE MISTRESS OF SPICES should've been a riveting experience.

But THE MISTRESS OF SPICES falters, and falters terribly at that. Plenty of reasons…

* Adapted by Berges and Chadha from the novel by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, the execution of the subject is a complete downer.

* What makes matters worse is the slow pacing of the film. The story unfolds at a lethargic pace, with boredom seeping in after an interesting start.

* Also, the chemistry between the lead pair -- Dylan and Aishwarya -- which should've been the highpoint of the enterprise, is frosty.

To sum up, the spices are bland this time!

THE MISTRESS OF SPICES looks at the conflicts faced by Tilo [Aishwarya Rai], a beautiful young woman trained in the ancient and magical art of spices. Ordained with special powers to help those that come to her, Tilo can sense people's problems with a startling ability to see into their past and future.

Tilo works in a small San Francisco store called 'Spice Bazaar', where, with the guidance of her spices, she finds the perfect remedy for anyone who walks through her door. For her powers to work, she must obey three simple, but strict rules: She must use the spices only to help others, she must not touch another human's skin and she must never leave her store.

When Doug [Dylan McDermott], an architect, crashes his Harley Davison outside her San Francisco store, she has to tend to his wounds and her life is changed forever. For the first time, Tilo's own desires are stirred -- is there more to life than helping others? Tilo knows the rules and her spices warn her to stay away. But Doug doesn't have any spices telling him what to do and soon returns to ask her on a date.

No matter how hard she resists him, his persistence, honesty and friendship draws them closer to each other. When they accidentally touch, another rule is broken and the spices are enraged. The spices are in no mood for either leniency or romance, but Tilo is captivated by the force of love and agrees to go on a date leaving her spices behind. The spices begin to punish her -- the more she falls in love and defies the rules, the more her customers suffer.

All Tilo wants to do is carry on her work and fall in love as well, but she is forced into a painful dilemma. If she turns her back on her way of life, all the people that she has helped will suffer, but if she doesn't, she will lose Doug forever.

Paul Mayeda Berges had a fascinating story on hand and even the screen adaptation of the novel has its high points, but it's the powerless execution of the subject material that makes the film sink faster than Titanic. There's not one sequence in the film that you actually cherish, primarily because the narrative is handled in the most slapdash manner.

Tilo's relationships with her clientele consume most of the time. And that tends to make the proceedings monotonous. Tilo's relationship with Doug and the 'anger' of spices at the growing friendship could've been depicted far more interestingly, but the impression you get after having watched the film is that the director was more keen to tell the qualities of the spices rather than a sound story. That's precisely why the film makes a zilch impact!

Santosh Sivan's cinematography and the art design are up to the mark. Only thing, the director hasn't done justice to the beauty of San Francisco. There was scope to show several breath-taking locations of the city when Doug and Tilo spend an entire day together. The instrumental version of a yesteryear hit works beautifully in the romantic scene.

Aishwarya looks ethereal and impresses in parts, not in entirety. Dylan is strictly okay. Again, the director hasn't tapped his potential to the fullest. Anupam Kher goes over the top. Nitin Ganatra pitches in a decent performance. Ayesha Dharker is wasted. Ditto for Zohra Segal and Padma Lakshmi.

On the whole, THE MISTRESS OF SPICES is a spiceless, bland fare with nothing to excite the moviegoer. At the box-office, this one's a disaster!

Gangster - The Idea Worked (Review)

Overall Score: 4/5
It's not a film, but an idea that works!

Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt have always believed in the power of content. Continuing with the practice of making films within limited budgets and casting new talent, their new endeavor GANGSTER also relies on a robust storyline than extravagant/grandiose sets or star power.

# But let's clear a few myths pertaining to GANGSTER first and foremost… The title GANGSTER may give an impression that it's a violent film. Or, perhaps, it abounds in inter-gang rivalry. Is it one?
GANGSTER talks of a dreaded gangster and there are sequences that depict violence. But GANGSTER is more of a love story than a violent saga.

# Does that make GANGSTER a love triangle?
In GANGSTER, the woman is torn between two men, who love her unconditionally. She has to make a choice. It's at this point that you realize the power of a great screenplay because the serpentine twists and turns in the plot catch you completely unaware.

Post MURDER, the Bhatts have produced a number of noteworthy films, but the ones that stood out were ZEHER and KALYUG. Their new effort, GANGSTER, charters into an alley that has rarely been visited by Bollywood. Of course, there have been gangster films in the past [PARINDA, SATYA, VAASTAV, COMPANY, D], but GANGSTER is, without a shred of doubt, one of the best gangster films Hindi cinema has produced.

A film like GANGSTER proves the power of pen [story idea: Mahesh Bhatt, screenplay: Anurag Basu, dialogues: Girish Dhamija] and coupled with bravura performances [Emraan, Shiny, Kangana], razor-sharp and acidic dialogues and brilliant execution [director: Anurag Basu], this one's a winner all the way.

All said and done, this gangster makes you surrender to its charm due to its rich emotional appeal, not gunpowder.

Simran [Kangana] is an alcoholic, heading towards doom. The only person who comforts her when she's feeling low in far-away Seoul [South Korea] is Aakash [Emraan Hashmi], a singer in an Indian restaurant. Their relationship gradually changes from friendship to love. And one night, Aakash learns of Simran's past and the prime reason for her loneliness.

From a bar dancer in Mumbai to a lonely, pointless existence in Seoul, Simran's journey is full of thorns. She is the girlfriend of the dreaded gangster Daya [Shiny Ahuja], a man on the run. He is in Mauritius, then Dubai, later Seoul. He has no place he can call his own.

When Daya learns of Simran's relationship with Aakash, he promises to mend ways and fulfill her dreams of a normal life. But there are complications. Simran discovers that she is pregnant; she is carrying Aakash's baby. She is now torn between the two men in her life. She has to make a choice!

But she is in for a rude shock when she eventually chooses the right man for her!

A complex subject, GANGSTER would've got ruined in inept hands. But director Anurag Basu peels layer after layer with utmost care, giving you an inside view of an ordinary mortal, who happens to be a gangster on the run.

The film begins with a startling shootout. And the mystery only deepens when the film gets into a flashback mode and the story changes tracks from a gangster film to a complicated love story. Just when you thought that Kangana had finally found true love, there's a major twist in the tale. The viewer is zapped at this juncture and you await the hurt party's next move.

The graph of the film only goes higher in the second hour. The sequence after the interval, when Shiny almost kills Emraan, is hair-raising. There's a twist in the tale again as Shiny decides to start life afresh. There's yet another twist when Kangana decides to turn to Emraan. Yet again when Kangana turns cold and hostile. Once again when Kangana realizes her folly. And a twist in the climax. In actuality, you just can't guess what's in store next in GANGSTER.

Director Anurag Basu deserves distinction marks for handling the subject with such conviction. Every vital point in the story has been handled expertly by the storyteller, besides working hard on the performances of the three principal characters. Basu's execution gets a major boost due to the writing. The twists and turns in the storyline take the film to another level completely.

Pritam's music is another highpoint. The songs have a different sound and the placement of each track in the narrative make you cherish them all the more. 'Tuhi Meri Shab Hai Subah Hai' and 'Bheegi Bheegi' are the best tracks. Even the song in the second half, 'Ya Ali', has a strong story running simultaneously. Cinematography [Bobby Singh] is consistent. The locales of Seoul give the film that extra zing.

GANGSTER rests on three players and each comes up with sterling performances. Emraan delivers a power-packed performance, more so towards the post-interval portions. The sequence in the Indian Embassy [in the second half] proves that Emraan has grasped the grammar of acting to perfection. This is his most accomplished work to date.

Kangana is not just a photogenic face, but also a first-rate actor. It's rare for an actor to get such a difficult role in her very first film and its all the more difficult for the newcomer to carry it off with élan. But Kangana takes to Simran like a fish takes to water. An actor to watch!

Shiny is remarkable. In fact, the actor has to rely on expressions [he doesn't get many lines to mouth] and the impact he makes cannot be described in mere words. He is fabulous in three sequences specifically, first when he reaches unannounced at Kangana's residence in Seoul [interval point], then when he breaks down in Kangana's laps, asking her to give him one more chance and the outburst scene in the pre-climax. Reserve all the awards for this powerhouse of talent! Gulshan Grover is exceptional in a small role. His dialogues are soaked in acid.

On the whole, GANGSTER is one of the finest films to hit the screens this year. At the box-office, it has the potential to prove a major success story. Strongly recommended!

And then he meets Zooni.

Zooni, who makes him feel things he has never felt before. She touches the true Rehan, and that is the problem. He knows he cannot let Zooni know the whole truth about himself. What he fears the most is that her being a part of his life can destroy her.

Kajol as Zooni Ali Beg

Kissa Kareena Ki Kiss Ka

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us (Click image to see full version)

Yes. We know that it’s a time in Bollywood, where ‘realistic’ cinema is being churned out by the minute. But we thought that the makers of a B-grader Chumban – The Kiss went a tad overboard when it comes to being inspired by real life incidents.

Remember the sensational Shahid-Kareena kiss that was captured on the mobile phone camera? The one, which was subsequently, splashed across tabloids and news channels alike? Well, it appears that the makers of this film have lost no time in capitalizing on the incident. Much to the chagrin of the couple in question, we’re sure.

A steamy smooch between the lead couple of the film has been plastered across its publicity material. But that’s not the best, or rather the worst part. Just on top of the poster is the tag line ‘Kari-Na Shadi Se Pehle… The Kiss’. (Kari-Na when pronounced is same as Kareena) Now it would not take a brain surgeon to figure who they are referring to. Crass, is all we can say!

Sunny and Viveik on an adventure ride

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us
After some lousy films, our action king Sunny Deol will get back to form in his upcoming film Naksha. Naksha meaning ‘map’ promises to be a wholesome entertainer packaged with a lot of action, humor and pure adventure. Giving Sunny company in this adventure trip are Viveik Oberoi and Sameera Reddy.

The title Naksha gives hint of the film being a treasure-hunt adventure. But producer Akshay Bajaj clarifies, “It isn’t exactly a treasure-hunt. But the film has a touch of mythology that runs in background in the flashback portions. Jackie Shroff has an interesting role in the film where he plays an archeologist.”

Naksha is directed by Sachin Bajaj who has managed to get together an impressive cast in his debut film. Sachin has earlier assisted Indra Kumar in Mann and Aashiq and south director Shankar on Jeans. The film also introduces a new girl Mridula Chandrashekhar.

The film has almost reached its completion. Only last 8 days of shoot are remaining for which the unit is heading towards New Zealand. Apart from that the film is shot in Mumbai, Manali and Bangkok. The audience can expect some daredevil stunts from Allan Amin (of Dhoom fame). Pritam handles the music.

“We are planning for a July release”, adds Akshay Bajaj and when we prod him more on the storyline, he explains. “The two protagonists in the film are in search of something. What’s that thing is for you to find out”.

John Abraham clothing' launched in Mumbai

The hunky John Abraham hasn't let his spirits dampen post his bike accident. On Monday, he launched 'John Abraham clothing,' his signature collection of jeans in Mumbai. At the launch, the actor joked, "I have lent myself to you!'

The clothes from this signature line will be designed by the actor himself. They are expected to be available in stores by Fall, 2006. Internationally, many celebrities have clothing brands named after them. However, John is the first Indian actor to have a clothing brand after his name. That's another score for John!

Fardeen – Ritesh in new comedy

If all goes well, Fardeen Khan and Ritesh Deshmukh will be teamed in E. Niwas’ new film, a comic caper. “Fardeen is keen to do the film; he fell in love with the script the moment he heard it. But the hitch is that he has signed a number of projects of late, including P.N.C. and Sajid Nadiadwala’s forthcoming films. However, he has promised to accommodate my film in his busy schedule,” Niwas informs me.

Ritesh too is equally gung-ho about the project in question. “He has agreed to do the film in principle. Only thing, the combination dates with Fardeen need to be chalked out,” Niwas adds. Incidentally, this is the second time Niwas is attempting a comic caper, after the multi-starrer LOVE KE LIYE KUCH BHI KAREGA [Saif, Fardeen, Aftab].

Meanwhile, Niwas rubbishes rumors about MY NAME IS ANTHONY GONSALVES being shelved [it stars a new lead man, Nikhil, with Amrita Rao]. “It’s true that I am going slow on this project. With so many biggies slated for release in 2006, I have decided to push the film to 2007. Since it stars a new hero, I will schedule it at a time when there’s no barrage of new releases. The project is definitely not shelved,” he states.

Aamir Khan's style statement in Fanaa

With every new film, Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan sports a new look and exudes a new style statement. His next flick Fanaa is no different.

While in Lagaan , Aamir had the rusty, brown complexion of a poor, hardworking labourer, in ‘Mangal Pandey - The Rising ’ he had long hair and a thick moustache and in Rang De Basanti , he sported a young and cool style.

Aamir always manages to keep in mind the style quotient of his character.

And in Fanaa too Aamir will maintain his cool, young-hip look. However, he will be given a different and fresh style in his attire. He will be sporting vibrant mufflers, a few wristbands and bracelets and in particular a red chilly locket.

According to director Kunal Kohli , "Fanaa is not a fashion filled film. The characters are wearing normal, natural clothes. But there are certain accessories in the film that will become synonymous with the lead actors after the film."

Aamir's clothes and look for the film has been styled by Mamta Anand who had styled Saif Ali Khan in Salaam Namaste and Hum Tum .

Mamta was asked to give Aamir an Indian look, who plays a Delhi tour guide in Fanaa, so he was given costumes like denim jackets, printed full-sleeved shirts, polo neck shirts and bright mufflers.

According to Mamta, "The mufflers have been co-coordinated with each outfit that Aamir has worn. Since we were shooting in the winters there are a lot of layers in his clothing and the mufflers complete it. He plays a local boy, but he's stylish. Therefore, he wears rugged denims and worn out shirts. His clothes are in tandem with his characteristic traits."

Mamta speculated that after the film releases bright handspun mufflers would be a rage amongst youth in the North.

Mamta further added that she did not have a difficult time dressing Aamir who is claimed to be finicky, instead, she said, "He believes in logic and reasoning. Once he is aware of the reason for a certain get-up, then he's completely non-interfering."

In Fanaa Aamir wears a red chilly locket throughout. "Director Kunal wanted to have an accessory that summarizes the character Aamir plays. The red chilly is symbolic in many ways and one will notice this when the film releases. In fact, in the latter half Aamir's character undergoes a change and he has a completely different look with cropped hair and all."

So get set to drool over Aamir's new style statement in Fanaa.

New Coca-Cola ad of Aamir Khan

A new Coca-Cola advertisement featuring Aamir Khan is all set to hit the small screen on Wednesday.

Coca-Cola announced the launch of its 'Thande ka Tadka' campaign with Aamir that would be aired on television channels on April 26.

The new brand initiative has been conceptualized by Prasoon Joshi of McCann Erickson and has been directed by Pradip Sarkar of Parineeta fame, the company said in a release in Mumbai on Tuesday.

Coca-Cola India has also planned an integrated food campaign, which will leverage other evolving media and will be supported by a strong on the ground programme in terms of visibility and trade activation, it said.

It may be mentioned here that Aamir has decided to take up with the cola giant the issue of its Madhya Pradesh plant causing water pollution in the state.

Yes, Reshammiya does sing in 'Phir Hera Pheri'

Since the time the promos of 'Phir Hera Pheri' came out and the credits showed Himesh Reshammiya as the music composer, there were speculations around whether the new found rock star would be lending his vocals for this film too.

Well, the suspense [though only for a short while] is out as Akshay Kumar lip syncs to a peppy romantic song by Reshammiya. "A new look Rimmi Sen dances opposite Akshay in this glittering number titled 'Mujhe Yaad Sataye Teri' for which the sound has been electronically modified to further enhance upon Reshammiya's now-famous-and-accepted-nasal-twang.

Krrish Begins where 'KMG' ends


Rakesh Roshan's upcoming blockbuster KRRISH continues from where he left off in KOI - MIL GAYA, where the alien entity `Jadoo' passes on a supernatural power to the down-syndrome Rohit.

Hrithik-Manisha at Taj Mahal's Pakistan premiere

According to the plans, India's minister of Tourism Ambika Soni will lead a delegation consisting of (amongst others) Sanjay Khan (producer Akbar Khan's brother), Hrithik Roshan (Sanjay Khan’s son-in-law), Manisha Koirala (who stars in Taj Mahal) and Mahesh Bhatt. The premiere of 'Taj Mahal – An Eternal Love Story' is all set to take place on the 26th of April 2006.

Udita Goswami does an item number in Dil Diya Hai

Aksar – meets – Aashiq Banaya Aapne in ‘Dil Diya Hai’! Does that sound confusing? Ok we will make things easier. By now we all know that the team of Emraan Hashmi – Himesh Reshammiya – Aditya Datt are coming together in ‘Dil Diya Hai’. So after the musical success of Aashiq Banaya Aapne that sold as good as Himesh’s biggest seller Tere Naam, expectations from music of this film is also rife. Now add Udita Goswami to the combination and the hopes go higher from the visuals as well.

The Aksar girl has been roped in for an item number in Dil Diya Hai. The last time she gyrated to the tunes of Himesh in Aksar with Emraan, the screen was set ablaze. So you know what to expect this time again.

This one promises to be an eye-stopper!

“Gangster is the last film I’ll be kissing in” - Emraan Hashmi

He’s the original serial kisser of Bollywood. No points for guessing who we are talking about. Yes, it’s Emraan Hashmi. It’s not surprising that the music of his next film Gangster too is rocking the charts. And of course, this movie too has a kiss! But the last one he has to offer onscreen.

In an exclusive conversation, Emraan talks about everything from films, fitness to his fiancée. Not to forget, his reasons for quitting smooching onscreen. Nevertheless the kissing-king also has some tips on the same for newbies.

Talking about your films, although not all of them have been hits, the music of all them has certainly been a hit. How does that make you feel?
I have been fortunate to work with great music directors and singers. I have had a lot of contribution from new singers. There was Atif Aslam with Aadat, Kunal Ganjawaala for Bheege Hont, Himesh for Aksar now James for Bheegi Bheegi. Pritam has given sensational music for Gangster. So that it one more added to the list.

Gangster is pegged as a different movie. Your character too is said to be different. What is it like?

I would not say that any one particular thing is unique. It’s the entire film. The narrative and performance add to the feel of the film. It is about three pivotal characters and the relationship that they share. True to the way Anurag shoots his films, at every point in the film you will hate and love the characters. Everyone’s point of view is justified. Even if you call Shiney’s character a Gangster, he is not a villain. He has his own point of view. It’s a unique story with great visuals and great music.

What is different about Emraan Hashmi in Gangster?
I’m playing a very nice guy, something I haven’t played before. My earlier characters have always had shades of grey. The way he has been presented is very mature. The last mature character I played was in Zeher. The mature look was very challenging.

Do you actually have specs in real life?

No I don’t. Sometimes I just wear specs when I get sick of my face!

There is an underwater love making scene in which you just could not hold your breath! It was the first time that Emraan said no to a kissing scene. Tell us about that.

It’s supposed to be a scene when I rescue Kangana from the water. She falls down and can’t swim. I didn’t know that there was a kiss in the scene. Mukesh Bhatt set an alarm for 4 am. He needed the shot for the promo. The final result looks very aesthetic. I think it was worth it. Underwater scenes look very easy but are very tough. They tied weights to me so that it would be easy to come down. But it was very difficult to come up. And that too at 5 am. You can imagine what I went through.

So did Kangana rescue you instead?
We kind of rescued each other.

Is Gangster based on the underworld?

It is loosely based. It’s a mixture of fact and fiction. It’s not entirely biographical. My character is fictional. Shiney’s character has certain stuff extracted from real life gangsters.

This is the first time that you are working with Shiney who has won a lot of accolades for his work in Hazaron Khwaishein Aisi. Did you feel a takkar happening?

I do my own work. I do whatever it is in my power to make the film work. That also means supporting your co-stars. Shiney is very focused. He studies his character inside out. That’s something I don’t do. He is good at what he does. Kangana is bright. She is different looking and has a fresh face. She has a spark in her and is a very spontaneous actress.

People have gone as far as comparing Kangana with Madhuri Dixit? She is said to dance very well. What do you see in her?
She hasn’t danced in the film. I would not say that there is a similarity with Madhuri. She is very unique. When you see her onscreen, you can’t mistake her for someone else. She has a distinct look and personality which is very essential onscreen. Instead of aping someone, she is very much her own person.

Which is your favorite song from some of the recent releases? You can’t pick your own songs!

I like one song from 36 China Town. It is very catchy. The sign of a good song is when you hum it after it’s over. Its Himesh again, who has done a great job.

A lot of people don’t like the way Himesh sings. Do you have any reactions? Personally, do you like it?
I do. It is very essential to have a different voice. You’d rather be different and be criticized than doing the same thing and be praised. It’s great because it sounds unique. You can identify a Himesh song when you hear it.

People are always expecting you to do something bold and different. Do you think the expectation is uncalled for?
I never really came in with an idea that I have to do something different. I took on films as they came by, on an instinct. Somehow, a kind of persona was built on screen. I don’t want to analyze it because if I do so, I’ll kill it.

It is easy for the youth to accept you because you come across as someone who does not try to hard. Tell us someone from the industry who was flattering to someone as natural as you.

I think Bhatt saab. He is one of the people who has seen me grow and given me my big break. He has literally held my hand and taken me through the films that I have done. He has given me some great compliments for my performances. At the same time, he can rip your performances apart. I won’t mention those films to you! But I think criticism is as important as the praises that you get.

Post the success of Aashiq Banaya Aapne, you are teaming up with Aaditya Datt again for Dil Diya Hai. Tell us about it. Will it be another smooch flick?

There are no smooch scenes in the film. It’s a unique story. Aditya is still a 22 year old kid. But yet, the way he will be presenting the film will be very unique. You will understand only when you see the film.

Is Tanushree in it?
No she’s not. There is a new girl called Geeta Basra from London.

Where do you’ll plan to shoot it?
It will be shot in Mumbai as well as abroad.

Your film Good Boy Bad Boy is a Subhash Ghai production. Give us some dope on that. Was that like ‘Whoa! I’m entering the showman’s world!’?
I have grown up on his films.

Name one of his films that you loved.

Ram Lakhan and Saudagar! The subjects that he makes are very real and yet the characters are larger than life. Yet not in a stupid and filmy kind of way! Good Boy Bad Boy celebrates the human spirit. It is about college life. In college, there is always a division between the crowd. One is the canteen crowd which does not study. These are the cool people! Then you have the so called nerds who keep studying.

Are you the bad boy?
Of course!

You are also doing Apoorva Lakhia’s Shootout at Lokhandwala. It definitely sounds unusual.
Well, honestly, not much has been told to me. I know as much as you do. That it’s about a shootout in a place called Lokhandwala. I still have to be finalized for that film. I’m in the process of working out the dates. Apoorva Lakhia is a very talented director. I am a fan of Sanjay Gupta, who is producing the film. If you’re a guy, he makes you look like God on screen. I remember seeing Kaante in college. He takes his shots in such a slick manner.

We want to know a little bit more about you. According to numerology basis, you are a number 6, which means you are really into music.
I am very fond of music. I am a compulsive listener. If I like a particular track, I keep listening to it. My driver keeps telling me to change the tracks. And I listen to the same song 50-60 times. On the sets also, you will always catch me with my I-pod. I have grown up essentially on western music. Lenny Kravitz, Bryan Adams and Aerosmith are my favorites. I also enjoy trance.

Is it true that you are an impatient person?

Not really. I am patient but can get very impulsive sometimes. I have goofed-up a lot in the past by my impulsive nature.

What are your other likes and dislikes? Are you passionate about food?
Not at all! I have the appetite of a sparrow. I just eat basic dal, roti and vegetables along with a non-veg dish like chicken. So really not much of a foodie!

When do you plan to get married?
By the end of this year! She has been teaching kids since the past three years. She loves kids and is great with them. She has known me since before I became an actor. She doesn’t care one bit about the film industry. She doesn’t give a rat a$# about glamour and the limelight. That’s what I love about her. It’s very refreshing to have someone like that.

Is it true that she boxed you on your nose for kissing on screen?
Yes, she has boxed my nose, scratched my hand and the works. That’s why I don’t sit with her for the screening of my films. There is always one scene which I haven’t told her about. She finds out in the first trial show.

Since you are such an expert, why don’t you give our viewers some tips on kissing?
There is no expert opinion. They do it their way.

What is the Emraan Hashmi trademark?
Tongues rolling! Oops! I think I’ll get slapped for that as well. Gangster is the last film I’ll be kissing in. I think I have had enough of exposure and kissing.

Eight Shani - Songs and movie Review

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Raj Lives in U.K. He is Clairvoyant. He can see souls & spirits with his compass, which gives him leads into ghostly activities. His elder brother Suraj thinks of him as a good for nothing guy who wastes his time. Raj's bhabhi Radha is sympathetic towards him though she of his mystical powers.

One night at Raj's house Ghostly activities begin. Raj fights them. There is a lot of destruction. His brother Suraj blames all the events on Raj. Suraj knows little bit about the kind of books Raj reads concerning ghosts. He throws him out of the house.

Raj gets together with his friend Sadhvi and does some Tantrik Chantings. What appears is a figure of EIGHT on Sadhvi's back in blood. This leads Sadhvi to the conclusion that whatever is happening at Raj's house is because of anger of Saturn (Shani)

The attacks continue and Suraj is forced to take Raj's help. Raj suggests they should leave London and go to Balwants's farm house in the country side.

Thus they shift, but the anger of Shani pursues them. Why is lord Shani upset? What mysteries lie in the past of this family?

In the end, the shocking mysteries unfold.

Esha Deol has no problems with extra-marital affairs

In her forthcoming venture ‘Ankahee’ Esha Deol is plays the role of Miss Universe who falls in love with a married man. And Esha herself has nothing against extra-marital affairs.

How does she feel about her role in Ankahee?

I was thrilled about being given a lot of attention, which I think I deserve. And the character is exactly like me, or any typical Scorpio - expressive, confident and yes, a tad obsessive. I loved being dressed up as Miss Universe. I thought that with my athletic body I could pass off as a tennis player, but a beauty queen? That was tough.

I could also relate to the character because I play a lonely girl. When I entered the industry, I was completely clueless. I was like a mannequin - people came and did whatever they wanted to. A woman completely ruined my eyebrows. Now I am much smarter. Today if someone even wags his finger at me, he’s had it. You have to be street smart in this industry.

But ‘Ankahee’ seems to justify extra-marital affairs?

You can’t justify falling in love. Love is love. I don’t have anything against extra-marital relationships - I am all for it. C’mon, my mother fell in love with someone who was married. Tomorrow, I could fall in love with someone who’s attached. I don’t see anything wrong with that. My heart could desire a married man, and I’ll have no control over that. A lot of people face situations like this, and that has helped me play the character.

If you are asked to name one industry man whom you wish was unmarried?

(Winks) My father! You know what I mean. It would be great if he was unmarried.

Esha says a good heart is the best weapon to seduce a man.

Women have big hearts and men are suckers at the end of the day. Till date, my dad writes shayari for my mum and it still touches her heart. What can be more romantic?

A surprise for Shah Rukh Khan

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan recently had a pleasant surprise while shooting for Farhan Akhtar ’s Don which is the remake of the Amitabh Bachchan starrer Don (1978) .

Former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad last week paid a surprise visit to the sets of ‘Don- The Chase Begins again’ at the exclusive Four Seasons Resort in Langkawi in Malaysia.

For the stars of the film SRK, former Miss World Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor , it was indeed a matter of pride to have a former head of state of the country personally visit the sets of their film.

SRK, who essays the role done by Bachchan in the 1978 movie, took a break from shooting of the film to entertain Dr. Mahathir, trade sources said.

The sources said that during the brief meeting, both SRK and Dr. Mahathir expressed a mutual admiration for each other.

During his visit, the former Malaysian PM also had interactions with the film’s producer Ritesh Sidhwani and Priyanka.

The unit of ‘Don’ has been shooting round the clock for the film in Malaysia for the last one month.

During the 70-day shooting schedule of the film in Malaysia, the unit will travel to 42 locations, including the Penchala Link, Kampung Baru and the Petronas Twin Towers.

Among the scenes to be shot during the schedule will be the classic number ‘Khai Ke Paan Banaras Wala’, filmed on Bachchan and Zeenat Aman in the original. In the sequel, the song, to be shot on May 13, will feature SRK and Priyanka and will be choreographed by Saroj Khan .

Also scheduled to be filmed is the song ‘Yeh Mera Dil’, being choreographed by Farah Khan for Farhan’s version. The song, which was filmed on Bachchan and Helen in the original, features SRK with Kareena in the sequel.

According to Sidhwani, the sequel of ‘Don’ will have SRK playing a techno-savvy gentleman - ‘James Bondesque’ character with knowledge of all modern accessories and gadgets.

Even Priyanka is expected to indulge in some daredevil stunts and display her martial arts skills for the movie all by herself.

Pyare Mohan - Dissappointing

Besides David Dhawan and Priyadarshan, one maker who has an impressive track record as far as comedies go is Indra Kumar. Right from DIL, which had a generous dose of light moments, to MASTI, his last laughathon, Indra Kumar has successfully captured the difficult emotion -- comedy -- on screen. That's precisely why you expect PYARE MOHAN to be as mad, zany and wacky like his previous endeavors.

In terms of genre, PYARE MOHAN falls in the same league as MUJHSE SHAADI KAROGI, NO ENTRY and GARAM MASALA. In fact, there's an unwritten rule and unspoken advice when you saunter into a movieplex to watch this genre: Don't wear your thinking caps. Don't ask questions. Throw logic and reasoning out of the window. Just flow with the tide... The mantra is to entertain and the target audience is any moviegoer who is ready to forget logic, sense and judgment for the next two hours.

For any comedy to work, it ought to be embellished with great scenes, loads of wit and humor and also actors who have a flair for comedy. On the surface, PYARE MOHAN has it all: An accomplished director, experienced writers and a cast that has been an integral part of successful comic capers.

But never judge a book by its cover…

Although the characters of the two lead men may sound new for Hindi movie buffs [inspired by the Hollywood film SEE NO EVIL, HEAR NO EVIL], writers Milap Zaveri and Tushar Hiranandani's clumsy handling of the material sends the film for a toss. The 14 reeler stands on a feeble plot, but what is unpardonable is that there's no meat in the screenplay to keep your attention arrested for those 2.20 hours.

Also, PYARE MOHAN lacks the stamp of a master storyteller. In the past, every Indra Kumar movie had not one or two, but a number of memorable sequences that made you jump with joy. PYARE MOHAN is not only saddled with a frail plot and powerless screenplay, even Indra Kumar's execution is below the mark. In fact, PYARE MOHAN easily ranks amongst his weakest film so far.

In a nutshell, PYARE MOHAN lacks the dil of DIL and the masti of MASTI. Neither does the romance in PYARE MOHAN make your heart go dhak-dhak, nor does the comedy in the film make you its aashiq.

Pyare [Fardeen Khan] is blind, while Mohan [Vivek Oberoi] is deaf. An inseparable duo, the duo were stuntmen in a film company initially, but after having met with an accident on the sets of a film, Pyare loses his vision, while Mohan goes deaf. They now run a gift shop. The sole factor missing in their life is romance; both yearn for a girl-friend. But things change one morning when they accidentally run into two sisters, Preeti [Esha Deol] and Priya [Amrita Rao].

Pyare and Mohan start dreaming of a future with Preeti and Priya. But the sisters, while leaving for Bangkok for a concert, clear the misconception. They tell Pyare and Mohan in clear words that their being physically impaired goes against them. Also, they add, they've always considered them to be mere friends, nothing more.

En route to Bangkok, the aircraft faces turbulent weather. One of the passengers, Tony [Boman Irani], feels that the aircraft is about to crash and makes a confession to a priest [Feroze Irani], who is seated right next to Preeti and Priya. Tony confesses that he's actually the underworld don who had deliberately spread the news of his death so that he could escape to another country.

A few seconds later, the weather turns normal and the guilt-stricken Tony now wants to eliminate the priest since he knows the truth. Tony murders the priest at Bangkok airport itself, but the blame falls on Preeti and Priya. They are charged with murder and imprisoned in a Bangkok prison.

When Pyare and Mohan learn of Preeti and Priya's imprisonment in India, they board the next available flight to Bangkok to rescue them. In the meanwhile, Tony is keen to eliminate Preeti and Priya since he wants to wipe off all clues and witnesses. He instructs his younger brother Tiny [Snehal Dabhi] to execute the task. The next 40 minutes of the film are devoted to Pyare and Mohan escaping with Preeti and Priya and facing the wrath of Tony. In the end, Preeti and Priya realize their folly and walk into Pyare and Mohan's arms.

It's an oft-repeated fact that the screenplay is the lifeline of every film. No film can survive on a couple of gags, punches or even star power. That's the problem with PYARE MOHAN. Soon after the characters are established in the initial reels, the film stagnates. You expect a flurry of activities when Fardeen and Vivek believe that they've found their soulmates. Again, nothing happens. The story inches forward minutes before the intermission, when the girls break the guys' hearts and head for Bangkok.

The post-interval portions are slightly better compared to the first hour, but that's because of a vital chase sequence in the film that can easily be termed as the best part of the enterprise. In fact, that's the only funny moment in the film when you break into laughter. Otherwise, the film tries too hard to make you laugh, but most of the jokes fall flat and fail miserably at evoking mirth.

Another notable scene in the film is in its pre-climax, where Boman Irani and his cronies hurl empty bottles at the lovers. But the climax, when Snehal Dabhi re-emerges on the scene, is a complete compromise from the writing point of view.

Director Indra Kumar is not in his element this time around. While viewing the goings-on, you look at the film in disbelief and wonder, Is this an Indra Kumar directed film? The film lacks the trademark drama his films always boast of. Even the light moments aren't in the league of his earlier films. The writing, as mentioned above, is a sore point. One expected more from the two talented writers primarily because they were in full form in MASTI.

Anu Malik's music is getting repetitive. Barring 'I Love You My Angel', there's not one track in the enterprise you hum on your way out of the auditorium. Even the Trickbaby track, which comes at the end titles, is nothing to rave or rant about. Cinematography [Sunil Patel] is ordinary. The beautiful city of Bangkok hasn't been well exploited. Dialogues [Milap Zaveri] are witty at times, but forgettable at places.

The only actor who stands out is Fardeen Khan. Underplaying his part skillfully, his is the only performance that stays with you even after the film has ended. However, he needs to watch his weight. Also, he looks puffed up in several scenes. Vivek Oberoi hams big time. Even scenes that demand intensity lack fire. He runs through his part mechanically.

The two girls, Esha and Amrita, have not much to do except wear three expressions all through: Throw a frown, radiate happiness and show dejection. Their makeup is also inconsistent. Even the terrific Boman Irani is reduced to being a caricature here. Snehal Dabhi contributes to the sole funny moment in the film [the chase sequence]. Adi Irani and Feroze Irani don't get any scope.

On the whole, PYARE MOHAN is a poor show. Disappointing!

Aishwarya injured on Guru sets

It's a known fact that Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan are currently in Bagalkot, North Karnataka, shooting for Mani Ratnam's Guru.

The shoot was going smoothly till Ash injured her hand this morning. It is still unclear how the incident took place. The beauty queen turned actress had also created headlines while shooting for Rajkumar Santoshi's Khakee. Even at that time, she had injured her toe and was hospitalized. Co-incidentally, during Mani Ratnam's last Hindi film Yuva, it was Viveik Oberoi who had injured himself. Let's hope that the actress recovers soon enough.

Guru also stars Mallika Sherawat. However, she was not present in Bagalkot as she didn't have any scenes there.

‘Tom Dick And Harry’ on 12th May

The uncertainty over the release of TOM DICK AND HARRY is finally over. Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision Ltd. has acquired the world rights of the film and the release date is finally fixed for 12th May. The rights include all-India theatrical, Overseas and Satellite, excluding music rights and India Video.

The producers of TOM DICK AND HARRY and Ashtavinayak met on Wednesday [19th April] to complete the formalities and the meeting, which continued till late night, ended on a positive note.

This Album Includes Following SONGS

aadmi aadmi
baat niklegi to
chule angna
hosh walon ko
hoton se chhulo tum
jhuki jhuki si nazar
jind mahi bajh tere
kagaj ki kashti
kal chaydhvi ki raat thi
kiska chehra
mitti da bawa
o balle balle
pyaar ka pehla khat
sarey pindich pyare
seene me sulagte
tera chehra kitna suhana
tere barey mein
tere khusboo mein
tumko dekha to*****
yaad kiya dil ne
yaad nahin
