DOTW: Please answer!
Should Guru have been India's choice for the Oscars?
Wednesday, January 16, 2008 -






Eklavya not making the final list of Oscars nomination in best foreign language film category is not surprising to many industry watchers. The film was not appreciated in India despite big promotions by its producer-director Vidhu Vinod Chopra.

Another film that is being trumped heavily by Indian media, Chak De India, would have likely met with rejection also as it is basically another underdog sports drama, seen countless times before, especially in the west.

Many feel the most original film from India that had perhaps the best chance to make the shortlist at the Oscars was Mani Ratnam's Guru. Made in the biopic structure, parallel to academy award winning The Aviator, the Abhishek Bachchan-Aishwarya Rai starrer was novel in its attempt to mark a 40 year transformation of India reflected through the life of a young enterpreneur. It would have received significant interest as India's economic transformation itself is being much talked about in the rest of the world right now with the talk of Reliance Brothers (The Ambanis) emerging in the league of Bill Gates.


So Abhishek Bachchan's perhaps best chance at the Oscars may have been preempted by the Indian nomination jury. The Bachchans have encountered this twice now. In 2005, when even international publications had dubbed Amitabh Bachchan's Black as the best film made in the entire world that year, a damp squib, Paheli, was sent as India's selection instead. And this past year in 2007, when Guru may have stood a legitimate chance, it was bypassed for a much weaker Eklavya, setting up a strawman's argument, and preempting the actual legitimate chance for India to compete in the best foreign film category at the Oscars.

Aishwarya and Amitabh. (TOI Photo) More pics

We all know how the newly-wed couple, Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan usually stay glued to each other.

However, during the recent music release of Jodhaa Akbar, Ash's beau was out of town in Rajasthan shooting for the film Dilli 6. His absence was pretty noticeable but was somehow diminished by the presence of his father Amitabh Bachchan.

Well folks, what we mean to say is that, throughout the event, Ash was glued onto Bachchan Sr's arm. So we guess, that if it's not Abhishek then it's his father, who escorts the bahu when the son is away.

Amitabh to shoot sister-Cheeni Kum in Himachal

Amitabh Bacchan in Chinni KumShimla: These days various websites are talking about the new project of Amitabh Bacchan which is said to be shot in Shimla and Manali.

It is said that the maker of the new movie was interested to repeat the cast of the "CHEENI KUM", i.e. Amitabh Bacchan and Tabu but the finicky actress is said to have refused the role and ageless beauty Dimple Kapadia is said to have slipped into Tabu's shoes.

Hitherto no information is available regarding the name of the new project and its maker. But the cast i.e. Amitabh Bacchan, Diya Mirza, Dimple Kapadia and others are scheduled to arrive at Manali by the end of this month. It is also said that the film will be shot in Kullu-Manali as well as in Shimla.

The internet media says that the movie is all set by one of India's major corporate houses which is going to be a story of an old couple who rediscover love.

They can be anything, but related to Bachans..Big smile

Amitabh to do voiceover for 'Jodhaa-Akbar'

Even before his career took off he did a voiceover in director Mrinal Sen's "Bhuvan Shome" - a 1969 award-winning movie about the life of an uncompromising Bengali bureaucrat and his "gradual change".Once again, Amitabh Bachchan will be doing the voiceover as the narrator in Ashutosh Gowariker's magnum opus "Jodhaa-Akbar", an epic tale of love and the golden period of Mughal history featuring the life of Jalaluddin Akbar and his Hindu queen Jodha.

A
sked if he's doing it because of Aishwarya Rai's presence, the Big B demurs: "No, that's not the reason. I had also done the voiceover for Ashutosh Gowariker's 'Lagaan'. In 'Jodhaa-Akbar' I'll be serving as the narrator."

Gowariker, who had to be present at the movie's lavish music release Jan 9 in spite of a bad back, says the Big B was the only choice for the narrator's role.

"It had to be someone who could convey both the gravity and historicity of the era," said the director.

Is Amitabh being brought in because the film's editing needs explanation?

"No, not at all," laughed Gowariker. "It isn't because of the editing at all. It's just that the historical details need to be punctuated. And who better equipped for the task than Amitabh Bachchan?"

Other films where Big B did the voiceover and narration include "Bawarchi", "Balika Badhu", "Shatranj Ke Khilari", "Tere Mere Sapne", "Parineeta" and "Swami".

Rituparno gets new look, Amitabh calls him 'Adolf'
Bengali director Rituparno Ghosh lost 12 kg and also shaved his head. So amused and exasperated was Amitabh Bachchan, who plays the main lead in his "The Last Lear", by the physical makeover that he constantly ribbed him about it.Fondly recalling the experience of working with what the director considers to be the greatest entertainer in showbiz, Ghosh told IANS: "Amitda wouldn't let me hear the end of my physical change. You see, I've lost 12 kg and I've shaved my head. Amitda nicknamed me 'Adolf' and insisted on holding on to a mock-mood of terror on the sets.

"
It was hilarious because my entire unit would suppress their giggles when that Amitabh baritone would boom across the set, 'Adolf, I'm so scared of you'."

What the creative artiste in Ghosh discovered about the Big B is his unparalleled commitment to the craft.

"Amitda can hold to a particular emotion for as long as he wants. We had to do an abnormal mood one day. Not only did he adopt a particular accent on camera, he held on that accent even off camera throughout the day."

What unsettled the director was the Big B's undemonstrative demeanour.

"He's very embarrassed by all show of emotions, in himself and others. I was shooting a scene where he had to take off his shoes. I instinctively came forward to do so, as I always do to get the physicality of my actors in place. But he sprang up and said he'd do it himself.

" 'Why, Amitda, what's wrong if I do it?' I protested. 'No, you'll steal my shoes,' he joked. He has internalised all his emotions. You won't catch him off-guard."

On the last day of shooting with the Big B, Ghosh brought his old and frail father on the set.

"Amitda didn't say a word. But I could see him observing my interaction with my father. Somewhere he stores away all his experiences and perhaps thinks about them in solitude."

Ghosh is so overwhelmed by Amitabh's work that he wants to cast him in all his films.

"Did I earlier say I'd like to make a dozen films with him? After completing my work with him I want him to be in every film that I make. And I promise you I won't misuse his presence."
