Vidya Balan, Siddharth Roy Kapur's Sangeet Ceremony Pictures

The wedding will be another close-guarded affair.

The business is not so strong in West Bengal, Mysore and Tamil Nadu/Kerala but being a North film that is expected.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan Day Two Box Office Figures/Collections Review

Jab Tak Hai Jaan collected around 19-19.50 crore nett on its second day (Frist Wednesday) at the box office as per early estimates, taking its two day figure to around 32 crore nett. The film showed big growth all over apart from the circuits which were strong on day one.

The growth at the box office on day two for JTHJ is around 50% which is good but mass circuits did not show the growth they should have. Going by the trends on Wednesday, the film is likely to fair best in the big cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Bangalore.

Basically the clash has split the market Jab Tak Hai Jaan set to do better in some pockets and Son Of Sardaar set to do better in other pockets.

Son Of Sardaar First Day Box Office Business

Box Office Report of Son Of Sardaar Box: Son Of Sardaar collected around 8.50 crore nett at the box office on day one as per early estimates. Again like Jab Tak Hai Jaan the film was hit by Diwali Puja, actually it was affected more by Diwali Puja as its best business was in circuits that are hit hard by Diwali festivities like East Punjab, CI and Rajasthan.

The clash with Jab Tak Hai Jaan also hurt the film especially UP where the lack of good single screens meant business remained behind Jab Tak Hai Jaan when it should have been going by trends in MP where the release was balanced and Son Of Sardaar came out ahead.

The film will show a huge jump today (Nov 14) but again the clash will mean box office business is held back to a certain extent. Find here: Son of Sardaar Box office collections Review/Report

Jab Tak Hai Jaan Movie Review Starring SRK, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma

Movie Review of Jab Tak Hai Jaan: After a wait of eight long years, the master storyteller, the most admired and revered director of our times, Yash Chopra, returns with his new motion picture. Regrettably, JAB TAK HAI JAAN happens to be the last film of one of the greatest raconteurs of our times...

Yash Chopra is synonymous with love and romance and also spellbinding drama and heartrending emotions. Is synonymous with harmonious music and exquisite poetry and also snow-capped mountains and mustard fields. Is synonymous with waterfalls and rains and also Switzerland and Punjab. And so much more... JAB TAK HAI JAAN encompasses everything that one has come to expect from a Yash Chopra movie. This time, it's a brand new setting, but the journey remains the same as his previous love stories -- just as the lead man and his lady love sprint towards each other from opposite directions, to cuddle each other lovingly, you're told that the romantic pathway is crammed with thorns and spikes [a quick clarification: all this talk of JAB TAK HAI JAAN being a present-day avatar of Yash Chopra's DAAG is absolutely unfounded].

For the hardcore romantics, this one's a treat. But those who *don't* swear by love stories, I am certain, will be able to connect with this film, since the twists and twirls in the screenplay are sure to allure those yearning for something captivatingly distinctive.

JAB TAK HAI JAAN is a poignant voyage of three characters. Thankfully, not once does the script or the writers [Aditya Chopra and Devika Bhagat] permit any penetration of superfluous or redundant characters or sub-plots that would've only led to puzzlement. Every episode transpires for a persuasive reason. Besides, the drama is absolutely intriguing, with an undercurrent of emotions running through the length and breadth of the film, thereby adding intensity to this passionate love story.

JAB TAK HAI JAAN is not your typical love story. It has the old-world charm written all over it, with twists and turns plenty. It would be a disservice if one were to reveal the journey of the three principal characters -- Samar, Meera and Akira -- since the plot changes from conventional to unconventional in its second hour.

JAB TAK HAI JAAN is attention-grabbing from inception till conclusion. The drama only soars higher and the complex love story gets more and more gripping as the conflict between the characters come to the fore. Mind you, JAB TAK HAI JAAN is not the usual 'love triangle', with two women fighting for the same guy. Nor can you compare it with any Yash Chopra film of yore either.

Yash Chopra's brilliancy and vividness is apparent in a number of sequences. And it echoes throughout the film. The poignant moments keep you on the periphery, while the culmination to the narrative may meet with extreme reactions. However, I strongly feel, the conclusion is most befitting for a film that doesn't take the beaten to death pathway. The only hiccup is that it gets too slow-paced at times. Also, the screenplay could've been tighter at places. A few sequences in the post-interval portions could've been spruced up for a stronger impact.

When Yash Chopra, A.R. Rahman and Gulzar join hands for a film project, the expectations are gargantuan. Its music has to meet the lofty expectations. Chopra Sr.'s music has had an eternal impact, but the songs here aren't of that towering calibre that you would anticipate from a Yash Chopra movie. Yet, the melodies that merit a mention are 'Challa', 'Saans' and 'Jiya Re'. While on music, the music piece and its choreography in the first hour deserve brownie points.

The DoP [Anil Mehta] and the production designer give the film a radiant look that befits a classic. The cinematography is surreal, grandiose and simply overwhelming. The vibrant frames add to the magnificence of this already spectacular looking film. The costume designers too come up with a wardrobe that's brimming with stunning outfits.

Event films such as JAB TAK HAI JAAN are, generally, embellished with seasoned actors. That's one of the fundamental reasons why these films appear so tempting. In addition, assembling such accomplished names [in lead roles as also supporting characters] is a rarity and there's a strong possibility that one may not see them sharing screen space ever again.

One can't imagine anyone else but Shah Rukh in the role of Samar. An individual with an emotional baggage. Although Shah Rukh has been an integral part of several romantic movies, he enacts it resplendently in JAB TAK HAI JAAN, brushing off any condemnation that he may have encountered for replicating himself in movies of parallel genre. The role gives the actor abundant opportunity to exhibit his talent and I must add, Shah Rukh transforms himself into the complex character with dexterity.

Katrina is the classic Yash Chopra heroine. An enigmatic beauty, who doubles up as a seductress [watch her in the 'Saans' track or the music piece]. She looks ethereal and enacts her part with elegance and restraint. As a matter of fact, she glides into her part with effortlessness and acts out some of the difficult moments with flourish. In view of the fact that a major portion of the story focuses on SRK and Katrina, one might assume that Anushka's role is more of a supporting one, but that's entirely fallacious. She's an integral part of this story and it must be said that she walks away with some of the best scenes and lines in the movie. Her performance is full of grit.

Rishi and Neetu Kapoor are endearing in a cameo. Anupam Kher, also in a cameo, pitches in a neat performance as Katrina's father. Sarika is first-rate in a pivotal part.

On the whole, JAB TAK HAI JAAN resonates an oft-repeated fact: Love stories will come and go. But no one will make them like Yash Chopra. Just don't miss this heartwarming love story!

Jab Thak Hain Jaan (JTHJ) Box Office Report/Collections/Review

Jab Tak Hai Jaan First Day Box Office Business Report

The first day box office collections of Jab Tak Hai Jaan(JTHJ) are in the 12.50-12.75 crore nett range as per early estimates. The collections were hit hard from 1 pm onwards due to Diwali Puja but circuits like West Bengal and Mysore came up with fantastic collections both comfortably crossing the 1 crore nett mark.

The box office collections of Jab Tak Hai Jaan are short of the figures recorded by Ra.One last year which is due to the clash with Son Of Sardaar.

The business of the film in single screens was much weaker than multiplexes as the opening was not that strong in single screens especially mass pockets. Jab Tak Hai Jaan will show a big jump in business today though again the clash will ensure business does not go towards record territory.

Son Of Sardaar (SOS) Movie Review Starring Ajay Devgan and Sonakshi Sinha

S.S. Rajamouli, the creative genius, holds the enviable record of delivering stupendous Blockbusters in a row. His films, consequently, have been remade in various Indian languages... the Hindi film industry has woken up to his brilliance as well. VIKRAMARKUDU was remade as ROWDY RATHORE, EEGA was dubbed in Hindi as MAKKHI and now, Rajamouli's MARYADA RAMANNA gets a Hindi avatar -- SON OF SARDAAR -- after being remade in Kannada and Bengali languages. MARYADA RAMANNA, in turn, displayed a striking similarity to the 1923 Hollywood silent film OUR HOSPITALITY.

SON OF SARDAAR is the remake of a Telugu film, but the Hindi avatar is set in an entirely different precinct. Nonetheless, what remains unaffected are the set of regulations that make masala entertainers work. Be it the hero's gallant introduction, his breaking into a power-packed dialogue or confronting the opponent, also bashing up the rogues, like we swat flies and mosquitoes, romancing the heroine amidst the mayhem... every significant episode has been integrated with the objective of eliciting whistles, catcalls, roars and ovation. SON OF SARDAAR stays most faithful to the ideology of providing unabashed entertainment, while logic, expectedly, takes a backseat. But who's expecting a movie with smart repartee and loads of enlightenment anyway?

Deviating from the light comedies/slapstick humor that he's attempted in the past, director Ashwani Dhir follows the Rohit Shetty and Prabhu Dheva tradition of making formulaic films/entertainers that pack drama, humor, song-n-dance, thrills et al, with the 2.20 hour film brimming with just about everything available on the shelf. Since the setting is Punjab, everything that you witness in SON OF SARDAAR is larger than life, right from the hospitality and hostility, the humor, the jokes and the thrills.

With a skeletal plot to play around with, SON OF SARDAAR may give you the feeling of deje vu, but let's face it, it needs tremendous skills to pen a screenplay that never lets you lose focus. Dhir and screenwriter Robin Bhatt ensure that they throw every trick in the book to serve a no-holds-barred entertainer, with 70 mm herogiri at its best, to the amusement-seeking moviegoer. That's one of the prime reasons why SON OF SARDAAR hits the right notes.

Ajay Devgn works for his friend [Salman] and his uncle in London. He receives a notification from his hometown in Punjab that states that he is about to inherit a piece of land. Ajay sets out for his hometown in Punjab and bumps into Sonakshi Sinha while boarding the train. Both Ajay and Sonakshi are oblivious of the fact that the families have a long-standing feud.

Sonakshi happens to be the niece of Sanjay Dutt, whose brother was killed by Ajay's father many years ago. Soon enough, Sanjay Dutt and his nephews [Mukul Dev, Vindu Dara Singh] realize that Ajay is the son of the killer and even want to slaughter Ajay, but there's a hitch. Ajay has entered their mansion as a guest and as per the tradition, all guests are to be treated as God.

Like GHAJINI, WANTED, DABANGG, SINGHAM and ROWDY RATHORE, SON OF SARDAAR pays homage to the cinema of 1980s and 1990s. The trend of creating desi movies that emphasize on entertainment has already gathered steam and SON OF SARDAAR is one more big-budget extravaganza that aims at wooing the Indian mass audience. Sure, it's brash, outrageous, wacky, exaggerated, irrational... so what? As long as it's fun to watch, one shouldn't grumble. While the first hour is breezy and thoroughly enjoyable, the narrative dips in the second half as the focus shifts to romance, with vengeance taking a backseat. But the penultimate portions, especially the combat between Sanjay and Ajay, is the hallmark of the enterprise, with the film concluding on another euphoric note -- the song 'Po Po' -- which features Salman.

Regardless of the 'old-fashioned' appeal, Dhir imparts a novel touch to several sequences. He plays to the gallery blatantly and audaciously, but he also ensures that the film is held together by a mesmerizing screenplay that unfolds at a feverish pace. Besides, Dhir emulates his peers and packs a solid punch in the high-voltage dramatic sequences. The ones between Sanjay and Ajay in particular are the mainstay, actually. There's a strong undercurrent of emotions, courtesy Juhi Chawla, while the romantic scenes are more of window dressing, offering the director reasons to slot in the mandatory song-and-dance routine.

Action has always been the perfect component to straight away connect with the masses and SON OF SARDAAR has several of those South-style maar-dhaad scenes [Jai Singh Nijjar]. They might seem gimmicky, but the truth is they work big time with the spectator who relishes those kind of stunts. The climax fight sequence, when Sanjay and Ajay lock horns, is superbly choreographed. Aseem Bajaj's cinematography compliments the director's vision completely. It's top notch.

The soundtrack boasts of talented and accomplished names and in keeping with the mood of the film, the composers deliver songs with North Indian tadka. 'Bichdann', 'Rani Tu Main Raja', the title track and 'Po' [the Salman Khan number] come easily to the lips. The choreography of 'Po' in particular is imaginative and is sure to please 'Bhai fans'. Sandeep Chowta's background score is fantastic.

SON OF SARDAAR marks Ajay's return to action, a genre that was once dominated by him till he decided to diversify to romance and comic roles. The supremely talented actor takes charge of the film from the commencement itself and holds it tight all through. If you're a fan of Ajay, repeated viewings are assured for sure. Post AGNEEPATH, SON OF SARDAAR is another significant film in Sanjay's career. The actor is in his element here, handling the ferocious moments [when he gets to know Ajay's identity] and the sensitive ones [with Juhi and Sonakshi] with effortless ease.

Sonakshi's character is similar to the one she portrayed in DABANGG and ROWDY RATHORE and there's this fear of getting typecast, but she sparkles in the sequences that she appears in, which works to her advantage. Juhi Chawla is outstanding, adding so much weight to her character. Her sequences with Sanjay are thoroughly enjoyable.

Salman Khan appears in a fight sequence, a sequence thereafter and the song in the end credits and adjoins incredible star value to the project.

The film has a very strong supporting cast and I'd like to single out Mukul Dev for his fantastic performance. His performance is truly first-rate. It's a delight watching Tanuja, one of the finest actresses, after a hiatus. She's wonderful, especially in the final moments of the film. Vindu Dara Singh is hilarious, while Rajesh Vivek leaves an impression. Arjan Bajwa does well in a brief role. Puneet Issar and Mukesh Tiwari are efficient in cameos.

On the whole, SON OF SARDAAR is for lovers of hardcore masala movies. If you liked WANTED, DABANGG and ROWDY RATHORE, chances are you will relish SON OF SARDAAR as well. The North Indian audiences in particular and those residing abroad will be simply delighted by this chatpata, masaledaar fare. A wholesome entertainer in the festive period. Go, have a blast!

With Salman Khan’s ‘Kick’, Chetan Bhagat Makes Debut as Screenplay Writer

MUMBAI: After his bosom buddy, producer Sajid Nadiadwala whom Salman Khan persuaded to take over as director of ‘Kick’, it is now author Chetan Bhagat’s turn.

Chetan Bhagat, the eminent writer whose books have given B-town films like 'Hello', the blockbuster '3 Idiots' and forthcoming projects '2 States' and 'Kai Po Che' will turn scriptwriter for 'Kick' - the upcoming movie of Sajid Nadiawala that stars superstar Salman Khan.

‘Kick’ will start in April right after the first lengthy schedule of Sohail Khan’s ‘Sher Khan’.

Chetan Bhagat seems all geared for the new challenge of turning into a screenwriter. Of course Salman is the big incentive. “I wanted to work with Salman since ‘Hello’. I couldn’t have hoped for a better debut as a screenplay writer. I hope to make this Salman’s best film ever. The challenge here is to restructure the original screenplay and take it to a new level. We could easily do a faithful and simply re-gurgitate the entire Telugu film into Hindi because with Salman anything and everything works.”

“I saw the original film in Telugu and loved it. But I felt there was potential there to take the content deeper. It is the story of a guy who lives for kicks. Everything he does, he does for the thrill of it. I want to explore that theme of living for pleasure, take it to another level. I wanted to do a a script that wasn’t my own story. Now I get to do it for the country’s biggest star. Not only that, one of the country’s top producer Sajid Nadiadwala makes his directorial debut in ‘Kick’. So I get to make my debut along another major debut. His (Sajid’s) vision for Kick is huge. I hope I am able to make his vision come true,” added Bhagat.

Both Sajid and Chetan apparently share good rapport. The rights of Chetan's best-selling novel '2 States: The Story of My Marriage' was bagged by the filmmaker, who also took over the directorial reins of the film from Shirish Kunder. Apparently later he thought of bringing in the writer on board for 'Kick' to do the changes in screenplay.

When contacted Sajid Nadiadwala confirmed Chetan Bhagat as the screenwriter for ‘Kick’. “We have Chetan to write the screenplay and Rajat Arora to do the dialogues. I didn’t want to turn director without being sure of the writing. Now I am confident it will be kick-ass.”

"He passed away due to dengue and multiple organ failure today evening. He was in the ICU," Lilavati Hospital spokesperson Dr Sudhir told PTI on Sunday.

Mr Chopra's 22nd film, Jab Tak Hai Jaan starring Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma, will release this Diwali.

Yash Chopra directed films like Deewar, Silsila, Kabhi Kabhie and Lamhe in his five-decade long career. His production company, Yash Raj Films, produced films such as Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Bunty Aur Babli and Mohabbatein.

In an interview with Shah Rukh Khan on his 80th birthday, Mr Chopra had announced his retirement from directing, saying that Jab Tak Hai Jaan would be his last film.

Mr Chopra is survived by his wife Pamela and two sons Aditya and Uday.
