UPCOMING HINDI MOVIE RELEASES
“I Hate Luv Storys” Starring Imran Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Sammir Dattani, Samir Soni, Kavin Dave, Khusboo Shroff, Bruna Abdullah, Pooja Ghai, Ketaki Dave, Anju Mahendru; directed by Punit Malhotra; music by Vishal and Shekhar.
This romantic comedy, produced by Karan Johar, features the locales of New Zealand and looks promising. Imran Khan is Jay, he works as an assistant director to filmmaker Veer Kapoor, played by Samir Soni, who is famous for his romantic blockbusters. Since Jay desperately wants to be a success in the film world, he has no choice but to work with larger-than-life cinematic love on a daily basis even though he doesn’t like commercial “luv storys” or believe in the concept of love. On the other hand, Sonam Kapoor plays Simran, a talented production designer who loves her job and the notions of romantic love. She has a blissful life with a seemingly perfect boyfriend, Raj, played by Sammir Dattani. When Jay and Simran are assigned to work together on a film, Jay’s cynicism rudely interrupts her life. The turmoil of their lives becomes ironically intertwined with the movie they are making. You can bet they will soon discover their own love story and there’s no stopping Jay when he realizes the concept of true love.
After some hilarious successes over the years, the combination of Akshay Kumar and director Priyadarshan are back. “Khatta Meeta” is a remake of the director’s own earlier Malayalam film, “Vellanakalude Nadu.” Reports say the film is a satirical comedy on the misuse of government funds by contractors responsible for highway construction and road repair in India. Akshay Kumar plays Sachin Tichkule, a struggling road construction contractor with big dreams, but facing tough times. There is not much chance that his dreams will ever come true because he doesn’t have bribe money. To make matters worse, the new municipal commissioner turns out to be his college ex-girlfriend played by Trisha Krishnan, who now hates him. Expect laughs as Sachin bumbles his way from one disaster to the next. In a light-hearted way, the films shows the extent of corruption and bribery prevalant in the system, and the ingenious means one must adopt to survive.
Enjoy the bumpy ride.
