When Tapas Relia started composing for films, he knew the uphill task ahead of making people understand the importance of background score. But many films later, including Ferrari Ki Sawaari, Tapas believes there is still a long way to go. He says, “When I say I score background music for films, people say, ‘Woh kya hai’”. He adds, “Background score is as important as the dialogues. An emotional or a comic scene can actually fail to draw an appropriate response from the audience without the right background score.”
Citing the example of Ferrari…, he says, “When Sharman goes to steal the car, I created music which would make the audience gasp in excitement. And that is what happened.”
Hailing from Ahmedabad, Tapas did jingles for ad films before his first brush happened with film music. “Hanuman was my first film as a music director. It was later that I scored background music too. After that, I did Return Of Hanuman, Mod, Bumm Bumm Bole and Toonpur Ka Superrhero.”
Currently working on two untitled ventures, Tapas wants filmmakers to take background score more seriously. “I got four months to work on the background score for Ferrari… and the result is there to see. The absence of a good background score is like reading a book without the right words.”

Okay, superhero films are the flavor of the season. The super-success of KRRISH and the tremendous hype for RA.ONE only reiterates this fact. But ZOKKOMON is the first superhero film that has a child actor having super powers and vanquishing the villains with super tricks. What makes this film special, besides the above-mentioned fact, is that it’s a Disney production that’s directed by Satyajit Bhatkal, who was associated with LAGAAN.
ZOKKOMON is like any superhero film, but at the same time, it’s not. Like most superhero films, the superhero here keeps his identity concealed by sporting a mask and wearing a costume. But there’s a difference. He’s not blessed with super powers, yet flies, evaporates into thin air and plays every possible trick that a magician would.BY BOLLYWOOD HUNGAMA.COM
Though Bhatkal has shot the film very well and the production design is up to the mark, he’s letdown, to a major degree, by the writing that doesn’t make the situations appear convincing. There has to be some logic when one shows a kid flying in air and also performing daredevil stunts. But no explanations are offered. All we are told is that there’s a ‘Magic Uncle’, a scientist, who transforms Darsheel into Zokkomon. Sure, the kids don’t question logic, but this segment of movie-going audience has more questions to ask than the adults.
In a nutshell, this one’s adventurous and fun in parts, not in toto. However, it’s More >
The young filmmaker Shamim Desai is no more. His claim to fame is his unreleased film Raftaar 24×7 that stars Emraan Hashmi, Neha Dhupia, Aditya Pancholi and Sagarika Ghatke. The flick is lying in cans and has been ready for release since more than a year. However, the producers (Percept Picture Company) are unable to give the film a release mainly due to monetary issues (Nagesh Kukunoor’s Bemisaal, also produced by Percept, is also stuck for the same reason while Percept’s Aashayein and Bumm Bumm Bole released after great difficulty and delay).
Its unfortunate that Shamin wont be there to see the day when his first (and last) film of life hits the theatres. RIP.
Anurag Kashyap tweets about the demise of his young filmmaker, “RIP Shamim Desai.. another good , young, unreleased filmmaker is gone.. atleast now someone can release his film..”

The situation isn’t really as bad it seemed. Though there were speculations galore around the delay in release of Raftaar 24X7, the fact is that Percept Pictures is pretty much focused on getting the film into theatres in quick time. Come September and this dramatic thriller with media as a central element would be hitting the screens.
As per the production house, the film is ready with the exception of one song which would be shot this month. The film’s release is planned after Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai, another Emraan Hashmi starrer, which is all set for 30th July release.
Till a few days back there was uncertainty around the arrival of the film. There were doubts if the film would see the light of the day since it was announced quite some time, completed in quick time but not quite followed by any concrete announcements around the release plans. However, as things stand today, Percept Pictures continues to be excited about the prospects of this Emraan Hashmi, Neha Dhupia, Aditya Pancholi and Sagarika Ghatge starrer.
Says Sanjay V. Ahire, COO, Percept Pictures, “After a year full of crisis for the entire industry wherein many projects got stuck because of economic and other reasons, Percept Pictures has successfully managed to release three films in the last six months – Jail, Raat Gayi Baat Gayi & Bumm Bumm Bole. This will now be followed by Mallika and 24X7 Raftaar. Percept Pictures plans to release a More >

Launched with much fanfare exactly two years back with a budget pegged at 25 crores, Raftaar 24X7 was one of those couple of dozen films which came into existence when the industry was at it’s peak. The term recession had not yet made its presence felt and every reputed production house and actor was more than glad to make huge announcements. There was widespread excitement around the film since a 25 crore budget allocated by Percept Picture Company meant that Raftaar 24X7 was all set to be Emraan Hashmi’s biggest venture till date.
All seemed to be quite well during the earlier schedules of the film as first time filmmaker Shamim Desai joined the principal cast of Raftaar 24X7 in Maldives for a ‘test shoot’. This was one of its kinds experiments as the week long trip worth Rs. 1.5 crore was planned to get the cast and the crew familiar with each other.
Says an industry observer, “Those were the days when good money was flowing into the industry. Corporate houses did everything to entice their actors and create an impression amongst the investors that their film was all set to be a lavish affair. No one could foresee that industry was headed for a doom in the year to follow.”
A major schedule of the film was later shot in Delhi where for the first time ever in his career, Emraan Hashmi featured in a guerrilla shoot.
However, there was not much movement in the interim. As things stand today, both Emraan Hashmi and More >
On a Friday afternoon in May, a typical city boy would be killing extra-terrestrial creatures with a joystick before proceeding to cricket or football outdoors. That is, if he’s not on a family holiday.
Actor Darsheel Safary, 14, is not doing either. After meeting us at the office of the producers of his second release, Priyadarshan’s Bumm Bumm Bole, he has an interview slotted with a news channel. “My vacation began on April 23. I’ve been coming here mostly every day since before that,” he complains, adding, “I’ve not even made my vacation planning. Unless and until I get an off here…” But then, he’s not exactly shattered because of this, it appears. He is revelling in the attention he’s getting once more, so much that his discovery by writer Amole Gupte three years ago at Shiamak’s dance camp seems ages ago.
Child actors have always been a part of the industry, but Safary’s story has unfolded in a media-cluttered age, and his debut in an Aamir Khan film shot the Gujarati boy to unseen levels of fame.
Perhaps like Balika Vadhu’s Avika Gor, this childhood is about designer clothes, studies on the sets and spending more time with your manager than your buddies. However, while Ms Gor bored us with pre-recorded responses (we More >

A string of low-cost films opened this Friday, but none could gather a face-saving opening. A tiny section of the industry was hopeful that Priyadarshan’s BUMM BUMM BOLE, starring Darsheel Safary after TAARE ZAMEEN PAR, would at least manage a decent start, but the numbers were extremely disappointing. A few felt that KUSHTI might open well at single screens of select circuits, but the numbers of this film were also dull. All eyes are on KITES, the third film in a row [HOUSEFULL, BADMAASH COMPANY], to lure the audiences back to theatres.

Admissions Open had a very dull with around 5% collections. The film has no chance at the box office.
Bumm Bumm Bole opened to a poor 10% response. the film could pick up over Saturday and Sunday but overall collections will still be low.
Kushti also opened to a poor 5-10%. The film has been mainly aimed at small centres but will find it hard to even find a audience at small centres.
Badmaash Company scored well at the box office in its first week with around 21 crore nett collections. The film has been appreciated by the youth and was steady on its eight day which should mean another good week.
Its A Wonderful Afterlife and its dubbed versions Hai Marjawaan! were very bad with around 1 crore nett in week one. DISASTER
Housefull had a good second week of around 14 crore nett. The collections on the weekdays were very steady. The film has now collected around 61 crore nett in two weeks. Housefull opened well in its third week. HIT
Adapting a worldwide renowned film is a risk. Not only does the filmmaker have to retain the charm of the original, he also has to make sure that the adapted version suits the capabilities of the audience of his country. Priyadarshan’s Bumm Bumm Bole, adapted from Majid Majidi’s classic Children Of Heaven tries its level best to raise to the level of the original and succeeds. Also it is beautifully Indianised to make sure the desi audiences likes it! This weekend, this seems to be the ideal film!
The story of the movie: Pinu (Darsheel Safary) lives with his father Khogiram (Atul Kulkarni), mother (Rituparna Sengupta) and sister Rimzim (Ziyah Vastani) somewhere in North-East India in a region infested with ULFA terrorism. The family leads a hand to mouth existence. Khogiram has just lost a job and is trying his best to get a new one. One day, when Pinu is sent to cobbler to mend Rimzim’s shoes, he misplaces it. Those were the only pair of Rimzim’s shoes. Pinu tells Rimzim about the loss but requests not to tell about it to their parents as they might scold him and also they won’t be able to afford a new pair for her. Pinu then comes with the idea-he tells Rimzim to wear his shoes during her school time in the morning. As soon as her classes are over, she should return back and meet Pinu at a lonely patch of the route. Pinu will then wear the shoes and go for his afternoon classes in the school! In this way, both can share the same pair until the More >

When you decide to adapt the Iranian film by renowned director Majid Majidi, CHILDREN OF HEAVEN , which was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, you’re shouldering a big responsibility. People are bound to compare the two films. It’s inevitable, isn’t it?
For those who’ve watched the Iranian film, you’ll realize that BUMM BUMM BOLE is not a patch on that film. And those who haven’t watched the Iranian film and would view BUMM BUMM BOLE as an isolated case, BUMM BUMM BOLE still disappoints.BY BOLLYWOOD HUNGAMA.COM
So what ails this film? There’s no denying that Priyadarshan is one of the finest storytellers around, but if you’ve watched some of his recent films, you may’ve realized that they have been stretched beyond a point. That’s one of the prime reasons why BUMM BUMM BOLE suffers.
Reason II: The finale of the film should be the best part of the enterprise, since the viewer carries home the end of the film, besides several wonderful moments, while making an exit from the auditorium. In this case, the finale is a complete letdown. What comes across is on-the-face, blatant promotion of a shoe brand and also an energy drink, which actually robs the film of its innocence. A film that should’ve been pure and considered a piece of art falls prey to commercial diktats. Why Priyan?
