2 11 2009

The movie reunites Shahrukh and Kajol after eight long years. They have previously starred in five films together, including Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, all blockbuster hits, establishing the pair as B-Town’s hottest on-screen couple. In My Name is Khan, SRK stars as Rizvan Khan, an unconventional hero who embarks on an incredible journey across America to win back the love of his life. Along the way his unique brand of goodness and humanity touches the lives of many and inspires a nation. “MNK is an epic love story. What sets it apart is the landscape on which it unfolds. Though I keep setting out to do something different with my films, the one constant is my desire to continue to explore the many ways in which two people can fall in love and stay in love regardless of any or every challenge against them,” says Karan.

16 12 2008

Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi may have had an average opening in India but the movie raked in a powerful estimated gross of $1.2 million in just three days at the North American box office.

The film, directed by Aditya Chopra , is the third such pairing between Shahrukh and Aditya after Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (1995) and Mohabbatein (2000), with the star proving once again that his box office appeal is still as strong as ever.

In ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’, Shahrukh plays a common man who comes up with a plot to win over his unloving young wife ( Anushka Sharma ). Well, he certainly appears to be winning over audiences abroad as experts believe that the film must have easily grossed over $3.5 million in three days outside India.

In North America, ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ is playing on 105 screens and took the 15th spot on the box office chart in its opening week, whilst the number one slot was held by Keanu Reeves with a remake of ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’, which grossed $31 million in over than 3500 theatres.

We’ll pick Shahrukh over Keanu anytime, anywhere!

Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi brings cheers to Yash Camp!

Mumbai is still not in a cinema-going mood after the terror strikes, but movie buffs – and loyal Shah Rukh Khan fans to be precise – could not have given Yash Raj Films’ much-awaited movie Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi a miss.

So if not in droves, they came in sizeable numbers for the first day first show to give the movie a decent and honourable opening in the city.

The opening collections here ranged from 70 per cent to over 80 per cent – and more in other parts of the country. According to initial reports, the collections were cent per cent in many centres in north India, especially Punjab, thanks to rapid advance bookings.

Yash Raj Films (YRF), which has suffered monetary losses after successive failures of its recent ventures, could not have asked for more.

In one quick shot, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi redeemed its prestige. The credit for this, as many in the industry said, should go to the jodi (alliance) of Shah Rukh and the industry’s most private filmmaker, Aditya Chopra – the duo that have given one of the biggest hits in Dilwala Dulhaniya Le Jayenge.

The film is Shah Rukh’s first release of the year. Apart from this, it is the first Shah Rukh Khan-Aditya Chopra film in over eight years. They had last collaborated for Mohabbatein in 2000.

Set in Amritsar, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi is the story of a mismatched couple played by Shah Rukh and newcomer Anushka Sharma and how the two of them find love in the backdrop of a dance competition.

The trade circles, which earlier were a little circumspect in their opinion about the movie’s probable box-office fate post 26/11, have now given the movie a thumbs up, saying it has brought a little cheer to Mumbai’s prevailing sombre mood.

In spite of not being a run-of-the-mill Bollywood blockbuster, Rab Ne… is attracting audiences all over the country because cinegoers have been missing the nation’s darling, Shah Rukh, the whole year and the breeziness he displays on the screen.

“Bollywood masala addicts may find Rab Ne… a low-key affair as it has no pungent sex and the picturesque locales YRF movies are known for, but what has marked it out is that it has identifiable characters and that makes it an intimate movie within the limited scope of the story,” said trade analyst V Verma.

YRF has two weeks to cash in on the enthusiasm the movie has generated among the audience before Aamir Khan-starrer Ghajini arrives. But by that time, Rab Ne.. would have consolidated its position at the box-office and be declared a superhit,” said I M Pannu, another trade analyst.

Reactions to Rab Ne…, however, was not as enthusiastic among some young audience members.

“I know ‘experimental’ may not be the right word to sum up the movie, but somehow I found the movie to be a tepid fare, lacking in the usual grandeur of a Bollywood movie,” said 21-year-old Dipesh Vyas, a college student.

But his friend Sheetal Jain said Shah Rukh made it all up. “Even the new girl, Anuksha Sharma, is good. In totality, I would say the movie is okay ” she added.
