Taran Adarsh Angry
Om Shanti Om is the second biggest opening of all time for a film in UK. It's got a fantastic initial worldwide and is on its way to becoming one of the biggest hits of 2007. The reason why the audience is loving OSO is because it's a complete masala film. On the other hand, Saawariya isn't for the masses, its too dark and depressing. With no major release in the near future, OSO will have a field day raking in all the moolah.

SLB interview
You are being called Sanjay 'Neela' Bhansali.
Thanks for telling me. I hope people remember it.


You are welcome. But why so much blue?
Are there any rules that films cannot be monochromatic? Why should I follow a formula? Who says that every film should have a daylight scene in it? For me, blue is Krishna the colour of romance. People should appreciate Saawariya for being different. Who says we all have to make the same kind of cinema?

Did you wonder 'what if this doesn't work' at all?
No, I don't think like that. I have a vision and I make films according to that. Of course, you want people to see it, appreciate it and to recover the cost, but that cannot be the driving factor. When an artist creates a work of art, he doesn't keep in mind how people will react to it. I don't make flicks, I make cinema.

Industrywallas are calling Saawariya a 40-crore No Smoking. Comment.
Rubbish. Every film has it's own budget. I have a certain way of making a film, and I can't make a small film. The money that I've spent on my film shows. It's a visual treat. I've put up beautiful sets. There are lavish songs, good choreography, cinematography... the effort behind each scene shows. I didn't spend the money on costumes for 40 stars. I didn't go to Manhattan or whichever foreign location other filmmakers are heading to these days to shoot.

Despite Saawariya's good opening, trade experts Taran Adarsh and Komal Nahata predict huge losses for Sony. Comment.
As far as I'm concerned, people love Saawariya. Only a handful of critics are trying to influence the audience against the film. If they are predicting losses, they are wrong. Komal and Taran, belong to the cinema of the eighties, they are antiquated and I never expected them to understand Saawariya. Great cinema should be kept away from such reviewers. According to me, every one who has worked in my film has raised the bar for the movie experience in this country. Gags and jokes at senior actors do not make a film great. Cinema is not about laughing at legends.

Are you talking about OSO?
No. Most films these days are like that. The whole slant seems to be towards making audiences laugh. There seems to be no space for serious cinema. If we don't do something new, our cinema will become a stagnant pool   of gags and jokes masquerading as a masala entertainer. Telling jokes is not my definition of filmmaking.

Have you seen OSO?
No, I don't see other people's films.

SRK says that too.
Shah Rukh Khan is the king of Bollywood. He can say whatever he likes. But why is he going around saying, 'I will destroy them?' Where is the dignity of the reigning superstar? Why compare yourself to a film with two newcomers? Who are you to destroy them? Have you created them? Do we eat off your plate? Have we made the film with your money? What gives you the right to say you will destroy 150 people who have invested so much in the film? Let people judge. It's a film with good values, and principles, people should appreciate that.

Are you disappointed with Shah Rukh's comments.
You feel disappointed. We decided that we'll maintain a certain dignity and not pull each other's films down. But then he started making comments like he will destroy us. That's not the Shah Rukh I know. I think he was being instigated to say those things.

But you've been dissing OSO as well!
No, I haven't said anything against their film. I feel that acting is not about six-packs but I've never said it until now. Why 'destroy' us? It's time for new cinema, cricketers, politicians. Let the newcomers like Ranbir come in. Shah Rukh Khan will remain a king. Just because People love (Mahendra Singh) Dhoni, it doesn't mean they will forget Sachin (Tendulkar).

You still think it was a good strategy to position your film along with OSO?
I've got a big opening. No other filmmaker would've got that against a Shah Rukh Khan film, and it's a big deal. We got the biggest opening for an Indian film with newcomers in the lead. Anyway, why compare two completely different films? My films is about art, and OSO is about commerce. People are walking out of OSO too, so why are we only talking about people not liking Saawariya? There is an agenda to this.

You think it's personal?
Maybe nothing personal against me but they want to push the other film, so they are pulling Saawariya down. They are people who are against the film, against the set-up, and there are lot of people who don't want to let Sony in.

Have you watched the film with the audiences?
No. I don't watch my films in a theatre. It's scary. I did it only during Khamoshi. I was very shattered when I saw people getting up and walking out and I decided never to do that to myself again. I send my assistants and they report back to me.

You don't want feedback first-hand to feel the audiences' pulse?
You can't learn what the audiences want. Then you'll get trapped into doing what they want. A filmmaker has to experiment. He needs to have the courage to do so. Sometimes, the audiences will like it, sometimes they will reject it. There's always resistance to something new. But that can't make me stick to formula. For all my films except Black I have been rammed and raped but I won't stop making the kind of cinema I believe in.

Audiences have accepted Ranbir, the same cannot be said about Sonam. Comment.
Yes, somewhere I think we expected Ranbir would to be accepted by the audiences as he had the author-backed role. Sonam's character is grey. Sakina is manipulative, hysterical, scared, lonely... it's not a character you can fall in love with, unlike Ranbir's character. But full marks to her for doing a great job.

The best compliment you've received for Saawariya?
Ramesh Sippy, Rakesh Roshan, Ashutosh Gowariker, Hrithik, Rekhaji...there have been so many encouraging words... but I think Salimsaab paid me the best compliment. He told me, 'Sanjay, it's time for you to make an international film, they will appreciate and value your work.'

i have lost whatever little respect i had for SRK.....he's only proved how arrogant he is

i completely agree....as SLb said her role has grey characteristics and she was supposed to be shown as a little mad and confused...
i dont understand why people are criticising her acting abilities...she only played the role that was required and she has done a fabulous job at it....
like you said, gabbar singh's character wasnt such that people would fall in love with him, but he's acting abilities to portary that role was great. same goes with sona
hats off to her for doing a such a great job Clap Clap

see it's a matter of being black and white.

if you are white, you are loved and people appreciate your work.

if you are black, you are loved as well in a different way...they hate the character but still know how to appreciate your work.

if you are completely mad, it's again easy to appreciate.

but if you are grey...like one of us...a little mad, a little crazy, a little annoying, manipulative...it's hard to appreciate it. coz it's abt subtlety. i think those critics who saw it and those viewers saw it all appreciated her work.

anyways who cares what others think. did i mention what bir darling tell this reporter on zee tv when told that sona's work was not appreciated? "in 2 years sona will be the finest actress in indian cinema..u wait and watch". uske muh mein ghee shakkar phool. LOL LOL LOL

i think we have got competition sona fans!! LOL LOL LOL

i mean her role was not something to fall in love. it ws very different! it ws scary. and if ppl wud hav liked sonam a lot , that means sonam wud nt hav been gudd! i mean to say if yu like villains that means the person who potrayed the role of villain is not gudd!!
wen yu hate a villain that means okk yess he has done amazing job!!eg: gabbar singh i used to hate him all thru my childhood the most dreaded villain

now lets come bac to the point!!if sonam ws loved by all that means she wud hav nt done gr88 job! since ppl didnt like her much means she did gr88 job becoz her role ws nt something yu wud luv to fall in love!!
so i apreciate her work! Clap

 

Ranbir played a very flashy character, that is why it is easy to like him but sonam played an almost confused, lost, slightly grey character, that is why people found it average and difficult to identify with her.

Rani and Ranbir are the wholly positive characters in this film. All others are bordering on grey.
