Much has been written about Avengers: Infinity War from the last few weeks. From the trailers we all knew that the new super-villain Thanos wanted to destroy half the universe. We knew that he’d swat away superheroes like flies on his dessert.

So hardly anything can come as a surprise now, we thought. Until Bollywood PR guru Dale Bhagwagar posted this on his Twitter. “Since Thanos is supposed to have finished off half the universe… now, as usual, it’s time to spend a few days marking ourselves ‘safe’ on Facebook,” he wrote.

Dale’s crazy thought combined with a dollop of sarcasm about the amount of time we spend on Facebook, not only cracked us up, but got us thinking too.

 

The public relations specialist often gives us some of the news first on his social media. Like even before the official release of the new Avengers movie, the Bollywood publicist’s FB post read: “RIP Loki, Spider-Man, Black Panther, Groot, Doctor Strange. But don’t think we are so stupid that we do not know that you all will come back. Ganda hai par dhanda hai ye. (It’s dirty business, but its business)”

We were sad hearing our favourite superheroes are gonna die, but Dale’s post sure confirmed our suspicions (and hope) that they would soon return. How? Dale hasn’t posted that! Not yet! Lol.

Avengers: Infinity War supervillain Thanos is emotional and emotive, says Bollywood PR Dale Bhagwagar

Mini Review: Avengers: Infinity War

 

Avengers: Infinity War may set box-office records worldwide, but overall, its no great shakes. One-time watch. Very thin storyline and the characters are so many, none of them get a chance to shine.

Too many scenes, too many situations; all packed in a long movie. In fact, a few of the guys came across as ill-developed characterisations and weak superheroes.

The only character one could relate to was Thanos… because the makers have concentrated on the emotional and emotive side of this new so-called supervillain.

And yes…. by the end of the movie, one begins wondering whether what Thanos is doing is actually right… easing the chaos in the universe. I am trying to imagine Mumbai having half of the population it has….. Gosh…. Traffic problems khatam. 

Now waiting for Part 2 😉

The race for marking yourself safe on Facebook ;-)

Since Thanos is supposed to have finished off half the universe… now, as usual, its time to spend a few days marking ourselves ‘safe’ on Facebook.

Dirty Picture makes a clean sweep at the box office!

Vidya Balan’s stellar performance in Ekta Kapoor’s The Dirty Picture has received an overwhelming response in its opening week. The film is reported to have earned above a net Rs 30 crore at the domestic box office in the first three days of its release.

 

Eminent film distributor and exhibitor Akshaye Rathi says, “The response and frenzy is overwhelming at our theatres. The opening day’s collections of The Dirty Picture matched the collections of some of the biggest films in recent times. The huge response at the box office reinforces the fact that the biggest hero in films is hardcore commercial content, backed by good distribution strategies.”

Celebrity publicist Dale Bhagwagar points out, “Apart from the making and performances, a lot of credit for the mind-blowing opening of The Dirty Picture goes to the aggressive manner in which Ekta Kapoor promoted the film. Even the eye-popping publicity stills and poster designs by Marching Ants majorly contributed to all the hype and hoopla. The way this film has kick-started, I wont be surprised if it makes it to the list of top ten grossers of 2011 and bags a lot of awards for Vidya Balan.”

 

Directed by Milan Luthria, The Dirty Picture is an unofficial biopic of Southern sex symbol Silk Smitha. Apart from Vidya and Emraan, it features Naseeruddin Shah and Tusshar Kapoor in key roles and recreates the era of the 1980s Southern film industry and its workings.

In recent times, a series of Bollywood films such as Mahesh Bhatt’s Murder 2, Aamir Khan’s Delhi Belly and now Ekta Kapoor’s The Dirty Picture, which have been awarded the ‘A’ certificate by the Censor Board, have turned out to be huge money spinners. What can we say, but here’s wishing the youth a lot of dirty fun at the cinemas!
