Dum Maaro Dum – Killer Promo

A film whose title is ‘Dum Maaro Dum’ set in Goa, dealing with drug trade … What a tribute to the legendary song  from Dev Anand’s Hare Rama Hare Krishna !!

It  stars Abhishek Bachchan as cool Narcotics Cop. The movie also stars Bipasha Basu, Prateik and Telugu star Rana Daggubatti. The movie produced by Sippy films and Fox is directed by Rohan Sippy with story by Shridhar Raghavan and Music by Preetam. The movie releases 22nd April 2011

Here’s the first look, it looks classy and that background score is full of ‘dum’

Chargesheet – Trailer !!!!

This has my vote for one of the most awaited film of the year, it is none other than Dev Anand’s CHARGESHEET !!!!

Here is the first Exclusive look of the trailer. The quality of trailer isn’t perfect but then when you have a Dev Anand film, quality isn’t a virtue we are looking at. The film stars, well of course-  Dev Anand, Naseeruddin Shah, Jackie Shroff and well some others. It hardly matters who the hero-heroine are. Watch out for cameo from Amar Singh talking on 2 telephones simultaneously and the title song is mind blowing !!!

This is one movie I can hardly wait for. After all its written, scripted, directed and acted by Dev Anand.

Good Song in Bad Film – Jab Chhaye Mera Jadoo

Here I am beginning a series where I would list down songs which are good otherwise but part of a really bad film. There are several such ‘hidden gems’ deep buried inside mindless films.

Here’s one of them.  The song is titled “Jab Chhaye Mera Jadoo” , a classic Asha Bhonsale number with trippy disco music and a classic  Rajesh Roshan tune that would make even Sunny Deol dance in rhythm.

The song features Simple Kapadia and Kalpana Iyer and is set in a typical 80’s style bollywood discotheque. Dev Anand, Mehmood and Prem Chopra make the appearances in song at various times. However the song clearly belongs to the singer Asha Bhosle and composer Rajesh Roshan.

The film’s name LOOTMAAR describes everything about the film and explains how bad it was. The film was directed, produced and acted by none other than evergreen Dev Anand. Tina Munim, Amjad Khan, Nirupa Roy also starred.

The film released in 1980 to a disastrous box office performance. The song however was an instant hit around the party circuits and is even today a favorite in every Bollywood themed disco party.
