Ratings: ***

Comedies don't always have great audio tracks, but there are exceptions. And 'Ugly Aur Pagli' is one of them. Anu Malik's compositions are young and vibrant without sounding too mushy or immature.

Ishq Bector of 'Aye hip hopper' fame seems to be the flavour of the season. He sings 'Karle gunah ankhiya milake' along with Anushka Manchanda.

The track is a Punjabi-cum-Hindi one with shades of rap and hip-hop. It is fun, playful and peppy and singers do complete justice to the song. Kudos to Anu Malik for making it an interesting piece!

Next is 'Shut up aa nachle', which is sung by Anu Malik, Vasundhara Das and Dibyendu Mukherjee. It has a Latin flavour to it and lyrics by Amitabh Verma are in Hinglish. While Vasundhara's voice is very soothing, Anu's rendition doesn't really match up.

'Talli main talli ho gayi' is a sure shot dance number. Rendered by Hard Kaur, Anmol Malik and Mika, the song has a mix of Punjabi-Hindi lyrics that are innovative and good-humoured.

As soon as you see Mohit Chauhan's name on the credits of 'Yeh nazar aaye jaaye', you know the song shouldn't disappoint. No doubts, the singer has rendered yet another commendable piece that boasts of romantic music and lyrics.

'Yeh nazar aur ye' follows - an absolutely peppy and sprightly track. And Sunidhi's vivacious rendition does complete justice to the composition. It is a love piece that has a contemporary touch to it. While it is not a chartbuster hit, it won't sink without a trace either.

'Ugly Aur Pagli' offers enjoyable music and the songs have a special zing in them. It definitely makes for some interesting hear.

Amrita and Usman split up, Kareen plays agony aunt

Distance has finally taken its toll on Amrita Arora and her London-based English cricketer Usman Afzal. The couple mutually decided to go their separate ways after their strained realationship for the past few months.

Says a source close to the actress, "It was a difficult break-up as both had been very committed for the last four years, but it was inevitable."

Amrita, though, tried hard to work out this relationship as she loved Afzal a lot but it wasn't meant to be. There were no huge fights and melodrama but a quiet acceptance that both were now headed in two different directions.

In an interview, the actress also confirmed the break up reports saying that the reports were true but she didn’t feel like talking about it.

However, unlike the other glamorous break ups where a change of hearts often takes place, distance between these ex-lovebirds seems to have ruined this love affair. Besides the distance, Amrita’s alleged link up with upcoming model Sahil Shroff had reportedly not gone so well with Usman.

Things turned further ugly when Amrita took off to shoot for a flick on Usman’s birthday.

A close friends says, her only comfort is that her best friend Bebo is also there with her. As someone who's had a long relationship break-up, the girls have something in common. Bebo is helping her cope as she understands what Amu is going through

Amrita has now immersed herself into her work. She has got good releases like Golmaal Returns and Kambakht Ishq and now wants to concentrate on her work. It seems it's a career decision as much as a personal one.

Love Story 2050 Movie Review

Cast: Harman Baweja, Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani, Archana Puran Singh, Dilip Tahil; Director: Harry Baweja; Rating: **1/2

It’s a beautiful dream for those who love living in the dreamlands only; but what about the audience who are quite bored with repetitive Bollywoody love stories!

Karan Oberoi (Harman Baweja) is the only son of famed businessman Mr. Oberoi (Dalip Tahil). Karan is not happy with his father as because his father is more interested in cars, business and achievement than his only son. Being very lonely and having the thought in mind that his unfortunate accidents would bring no loss to anyone, Karan always prefers to play with danger. In the course of the mundane story, Karan meets Sana (Priyanka Chorpa) and for obvious reasons (love, I mean to say) they decide on getting married. And here comes the twist. Sana meets an accident and she dies leaving Karan all alone.

Boman IraniOn the other hand the Love Story has Karan’s uncle, Dr. Yatinder Khanna (Boman Irani), who by profession is a scientist. Dr. Khanna has been working on a time machine for last fifteen years so that he can poke into the future to how the things will change (obviously).

Karan meets Dr. Khanna and recapping Sana’s dream about entering the year 2050, they go to the year 2050 with the time machine. Entering the future Karan comes to know that Sana is now the best rock-star of the world living in Mumbai and is named as Zaisha. Ultimately Karan succeeds in getting his love, Sana alias Zaisha, back to the present with the help of QUTY and BOO, two robotic dolls taking care of Zaisha.

Harry Baweja has beautifully taken care of direction as well as the story but at some places the story becomes little slow. Music and lyrics of the film looks nice but at the same time it appears little difficult to say that songs will look something like that with flying cars in the year 2050. Priyanka has worked well in accordance with her character. Whether Harman’s resemblance with Hrithik is a bane or boon is a quiz immaterial but his impact on the screen is quite impressive. Boman Irani has depicted his character quite well. Archana Puran Singh looks good in her character of Priyanka’s mother.

Lovely Couple Priyanka Chopra and Harman BawejaThe first part of the film is based on the love story between Priyanka and Harman and the funny thing is the second part of the film is also based on their love story. The only difference is the second part happens in the year 2050.

Coming to the much hyped special effects, Harry has proved it a mark in Indian film history but it’s quite difficult to say whether the world, especially Mumbai, will look somewhat like that in the year 2050. This possibly is the first Indian film that marvels in special effects and people seem really amazed but at the same time few people are inclined to believe it a copy of some Hollywood flick. Being neutral it’s better to buy both the opinions. One funny thing is, even in 2050, corruption remain our inseparable characteristic. On the other hand the robot snake shows the fatal future of today’s reptiles (?).

PosterQUTY and BOO show the great creative status of the director but the size of BOO is little small than what people have expected it to be. The film, flaunting a budget of fifty crore, must have earned a cool amount from Lux and Lawman. At the same time, the brand owners must be feeling good thinking about how their brands will be famous among stars even in 2050.

Well, it’s time to say adieu to you all but before signing off it’s better to say that you must watch the film once to witness Harman’s acting, special effects and not to forget, Mumbai in 2050.

Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na Movie Review

Cast: Imran Khan, Genelia Dsouza, Ratna Pathak, Manjari Phadnis, Anuradha Patel,
Jayant Kriplani, Alishka Varde, Nirav Mehta, Ayaz Khan, Karan Makhija, Sugandha Garg, Prateik Babbar, Renuka Kunzru, Naseruddin Shah; Director: Abbas Tyrewala; Rating: ***1/2

The film “Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na” has as expected teenage energy, college gang, love, comedy, romance, emotions and music that is lovely. The film is an entertainer with a predictable story line that starts with a low pace and the climax is unsurprising but a few moments and fun parts are impressive. The salient feature of the film is that nothing has been overdone and things have been made to look real and grounded.

The performance of the debuting star Imran looks patched up at the start that improves as the movie proceeds and Genelia looks sweet (she too need to improve on performance) and Prateek Babbar (son of Smitha Patil) as Genelia’s brother gets noticed in the small role.

The film depicts the changing social culture that has single parents, broken marriage relationships and kids suffering unprotected childhoods that make the children responsible and even irresponsible in young age. The so called “cool parents” trying to be with their kids and parents who do not want understand their kids’ problems.

The title “Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na” is basic story of the film. The film has two college going youngsters Jai and Adidti and both don’t know that they are in love and they are made to know it by circumstances. Both are completely different from other, Aditi is rich and angry and Jai is least furious rajput and belongs to a middle class family. They both want perfect life partners for themselves but on meeting people of their dream they realize that they are in love with each other.

The film has a college gang of vie, Jai, Aditi, Jignesh Patel, Sandhya, Shaleen and Rotlu , where teenagers share their emotions and have fun together. The films show the cute relationship of mother Savitri (played by Ratna Pathak Shah) and son Jai and a talking photograph of Jai’s father and comedy scenes like the sequence of brothers Bhaloo and Baghera.

The film is produced by Aamir Khan Productions and directed by Abbas Tyrewala who turns director from this film. The presentation of Imran is impressive and costumes of Imran (by Fashion designer Ashley Rebello) make him look cool (look like his uncle Aamir Khan) and he matches the role. Even the costumes of Genelia are notable.

The music of the film is luminous and energetic, by A.R. Rahman. Imran can not be compared to Aamir, he needs to improve but the movie is about a gang of youngsters and complete focus of the film is not on Imran that saves him.

The film will has its drawbacks that may not help it to be a blockbuster but it will definitely call college goers to multiplexes.

Eesha Kophikar’s trainer taking her for a ride

If you see Eesha Kophikar zipping past on the pillion seat, with a dude riding the bike, don’t get those naughty ideas. It’s only her fitness trainer giving her a ride to the classes.

No, it’s not a way to save petrol giving the rising fuel price. Just that Eesha’s driver has had a mishap and has to be off his feet for a whole month! Now, since Eesha is totally and diligently into fitness, a month’s absence on her driver’s part sent her into a panic mode since she doesn’t like missing even a day of her fitness class and she had already missed about a week.

But then, where there’s a will there’s a way and Eesha’s solution is hitching a ride with her trainer. Oh, did we mention Eesha loves bikes? Yeah, she does… isn’t that nice? She gets a ride on the bike and doesn’t miss her fitness classes. If you wanna know how serious she is about these sessions, she goes for them at 5.30 am without fail and then gets about other regular work.
