After almost five years, accomplished actor Saurabh Shukla returns to the director’s chair with RAAT GAYI, BAAT GAYI?, a film that’s making the right buzz. Making an adult comedy that talks of one night stand is tough. But giving the serious issue a humorous take is tougher.

RAAT GAYI, BAAT GAYI? is about relationships and also looks at the philanderers, who, despite being committed, don’t mind having a PYT in a closet, for no strings attached fun.

You may draw parallels with THE HANGOVER because the protagonist can’t recall anything that happened the previous night. But it must also be said that the film throws a few surprises, which makes it completely different from any film, past or present.


But there’s one factor that throws a spanner. There’s not much meat in the story. Also, it unravels at an excruciatingly slow pace. In fact, the wheels start moving only towards the penultimate 20 odd minutes, when the answers start coming.

In a nutshell, RAAT GAYI, BAAT GAYI? offers a few laughs, not laughter unlimited!

Rahul [Rajat Kapoor] wakes up with a bad hangover after a party the night before. There, he had met a sexy young woman Sophia [Neha Dhupia]. They got drunk and there were sparks flying. But Rahul doesn’t remember what happened after that. Did they go all the way?

His wife Mitali [Irawati Harshe Mayadev] is in a particularly bad mood and Rahul suspects that she might know about his little escapade last night. Rahul starts chasing his night, trying to retrieve it, trying to find out what really happened.

His friends Saxena [Dalip Tahil] and Amit [Vinay Pathak] are going through their own marital crisis of sorts. Driven to his wits end, he realizes that he must meet Sophia again to get the answers.

Almost three decades ago, Basu Chatterjee made an adult comedy called SHAUKEEN, which told the story of three men who eye a pretty girl, who’s completely oblivious of their intentions. In this film too, director Saurabh Shukla looks at three men with a roving eye.

Sadly, the screenplay [writers: Saurabh Shukla and Rajat Kapoor] falls woefully short in terms of generating interest. In fact, till three-fourths of the movie, there’s not much movement in the story, except for a few humour-laden sequences. It also moves lethargically and is unnecessarily slack.

Ankur Tewari’s music is strictly functional. Fuwad Khan’s cinematography captures the varied moods well.

The film scores in the performance department. Every member of the cast – Neha Dhupia, Rajat Kapoor, Vinay Pathak, Dalip Tahil, Irawati Harshe Mayadev, Anu Menon, Navniit Nisshan and Aamir Bashir – deliver fine performances. Especially Rajat and Vinay. Ranvir Shorey, Makrand Deshpande and Sudhir Mishra appear in cameos.

On the whole, RAAT GAYI, BAAT GAYI? doesn’t work.

HOT! Katrina Kaif
…says Katrina Kaif on being voted the Sexiest Asian Woman again

SUBHASH K JHA Times News Network (BOMBAY TIMES; December 15, 2009)

Katrina Kaif, who has just been voted the Sexiest Asian Woman the second time over by a UK publication, is of the opinion that in the Indian context — sexy has a very different definition. “It means a person is more appealing than overtly physically attractive. These titles come from the fact that I’m currently in people’s consciousness because of the work that I have done this year. New York, Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and De Dana Dan all worked,” says the Bollywood hottie, adding, “People should see me at home. I’m painfully unglamorous. Just another working girl making a living. I certainly don’t fit into the conventional sexy babe groove. I’m more in the girl next door mould. And that’s the image I’m comfortable with.” She also feels being sexy is not about clothes and the oomph. “It’s not about how hard you can pout into the camera. It’s about being a complete woman without trying.”

Kat also feels Asians define sexiness in ways that go beyond the skin. “I think we Indians define sexy in a different way than other parts of the world. I think Asian women are seen to be sexy when they can fit into the domestic image. Plain and simple, the girls the Indian guys can take home to their mothers are sexy.” Pondering on being conventionally sexy, Katrina adds, “I did do some oomphy stuff last year, like Zara Zara Kiss Me in Race. So maybe being called the Sexiest or whatever made sense in 2008. But this year all my roles have been of wholesome girls next door. What was sexy about my character in New York or Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani? And in my next release I wear sober sarees and project an image that’s a far cry from the bubbly all-over-the-place nymphet that people expect me to be.”

FLYING HIGH: Ranbir Kapoor, Jaideep Sahni and Shimit Amin at the Radio Mirchi studios

Ranbir Kapoor rocks Radio Mirchi studios in cheeky broadcast for 98.3 FM

NIMISHA TIWARI Times News Network (BOMBAY TIMES; December 10, 2009)

Look who’s flying rockets at the Radio Mirchi studios in Lower Parel…Ranbir Kapoor aka Rocket Singh, the sexiest Surd in town. Though he was clean shaven for this appearance, the hot new kid on Bollywood’s block said, “I look sexy even with a beard, you gotta check me out in Rocket Singh!” That toh the actors fans are bound to do when the Yashraj Films’ release hits the screens on Friday, but before that, you can catch the high-octane interaction Ranbir had at Radio Mirchi by tuning in to 98.3 FM and also listen to songs from the new film and win attractive merchandise.

With him were Rocket Singh director Shimit Amin (of Chak De! India fame) and Jaideep Sahni who wrote the screenplay of the film. The actor spoke about his character in the film which is all about toppers in life — not necessarily toppers in school or college — even while making paper rockets and sending them darting all about the place. He joked with two female listeners of the radio station who were invited to meet him. One complimented him on his debut flick Saawariya. And the other asked him to adopt her “as maa, baap anything”. Both, Rocket Singh and Ranbir Kapoor blushed!
Akshay Kumar to play a fashion conscious conman sporting designer clothes, a stylish hairstyle and jewelry in Farah Khan’s Tees Maar Khan
By Vickey Lalwani (MUMBAI MIRROR; December 07, 2009)
If you thought Farah Khan will make Akshay Kumar play an unsophisticated street smart conman in her next directorial venture Tees Maar Khan think again. Contrary to popular belief, Akshay plays a sexy and stylised international conman in the film. No prizes for guessing that Akshay’s new best friend Farah Khan is leaving no stone unturned to ensure that he has women swooning right from his first scene in the film.

While well-known designer Aki Narula is working on Akshay’s costumes in Tees Maar Khan, Farah is also getting some international make-up artists and hairdressers for her lead actor. Farah’s first choice is that Akshay should sport long hair in the film. “I will take a look test with him wearing extensions, but if that doesn’t work, then he’ll have short hair throughout the film. But one thing is sure that I will show him as a pucca hero. He is a gorgeous looking man. He plays a Muslim and wears very trendy clothes, mostly ganjis. He has loads of attitude in Tees Maar Khan because of which I have also planned a grand entry scene for him,” said an excited Farah.

“Akshay will also be wearing jewelry in the film, maybe a bracelet or an amulet with TMK embossed on it,” added Farah.

And who will be the lucky girl who will rub shoulders with Akshay?  “Well, I am doing a nationwide hunt for a new girl but if I don’t find the right one, I will go in for an established actress. The heroine’s name in the film is Anya, which is actually my daughter’s name. She will go by the name Anya Khan,” revealed Farah.

Farah further said that Tees Maar Khan happened when her husband Shirish Kunder showed her one of his scripts. “It was too funny. When I told him that, he said he would love to produce it if he gets a good director. I immediately offered to direct it and things quickly fell into place. The film is very close to Shirish’s heart. He had registered the title three years ago,” said Farah.

Commenting on who suggested Akshay’s name for the title role, Farah said, “Shirish suggested it.”

Goes without saying, Tees Maar Khan will be a typical racy entertainer, which is Farah’s style. “Yes, it will be my kind of film,” Farah laughed and said.

Akshay Kumar Farah Khan

(MUMBAI MIRROR; November 19, 2009)

Who says time changes everything? Ask Akshay Kumar, who has stuck to his quintessential style of acting and looks just as fit and dishy as he did 15 years ago.

If anything, he has only gotten younger as time has passed by. Even the surroundings have not changed for Akshay. The sizzling rainy atmosphere, the sexy flame orange saris, a macho man caressing his woman…it’s all the same. For instance, take a closer look at these two pictures- Akshay and Raveena set everybody’s pulse racing while singing and dancing together in the rain to Tip tip barsa paani in Mohra (1994) and now, he will again set the screen on fire with Katrina Kaif in the soon-to-be-released De Dana Dan. Some things never change. And if they do, they only get better with time. Right, Akki?

FRUIT & NUT, directed by Kunal Vijaykar, is one of those films that succeed in making you giggle intermittently. But how one wishes the film had a strong story in the first place. This one is a senseless comedy and the sad part is, the absurdities here are not too amusing.

FRUIT & NUT is about Jolly Maker, who is a simple, hard working middle class struggling bachelor in search of love, money, friends and success. He works as a clerk/accountant in the office of a greedy and corrupt builder named Khandar. He is typically nerdy and un-stylish. He is also accident-prone and leaves a trail of disaster behind him.


One fine day, Jolly Maker’s beautiful, sexy, smart and snobbish colleague, Monica, gets mysteriously kidnapped. Through a roller coaster ride and series of comical mishaps, Jolly Maker finds himself in the middle of a plot that has been hatched by an insane Ex-Maharaja to destroy Mumbai.

Whether the poor, adorable, accident-prone Jolly Maker finally falls in love or not, gets his girl or not and above all, is able to save Mumbai or not, makes for rest of the film.

Director Kunal Vijaykar tries hard to keep you entertained, but the writing is just not captivating. Sure, you do laugh at a few jokes/situations, but there are times when the jokes aren’t too funny and also tend to get repetitive.

The performances are over-the-top, but go well with the mood of the film. Boman Irani glides into the character effortlessly. Cyrus Broacha is perfect. Mahesh Manjrekar is first-rate. Dia Mirza does a fine job.

On the whole, FRUIT & NUT has some funny moments, that’s it! A film like this holds very limited appeal.
