We give you a blow-by-blow account of all that happened at Salman Khan’s Dabangg success party
Kunal M Shah (MUMBAI MIRROR; September 28, 2010)
While a good majority of the industry stayed away from Sallu’s bash, it did turn out to be a heady mix of celebrities, some clad in their snazzy cocktail outfits and of course, Sallu standing out ever so stylishly in his casual t-shirt and jeans.
Aamir’s sweet gesture
While host Sallu made a late entry himself, Aamir Khan, who recently returned from Toronto, came over (looking a tad out of place however in a bowtie and a suit) to wish Salman for his success.Arbaaz Khan, Aamir Khan, Salman Khan and Subhash Ghai (Yogen Shah)
Sonu-Sallu swappy story
The highlight of the evening was an oddly cute interaction between Sallu and Sonu Sood. Imagine a comic strip and here’s a chronological lowdown of what transpired. 1. Salman hugged Sonu and said that he wanted to do something for him. 2. Instinctively, Sallu removed the watch from his wrist and gave it to Sonu. 3. An overwhelmed Sonu thought of returning the gesture but proved to be a little unimaginative; he removed his watch to give it to Salman. 4. While initially refusing Sonu’s watch, Sallu finally took it and kept it in his pocket. 5. Sallu then took it out again and put it in Sonu’s pocket. 6. “This is its rightful place,” Sallu then told Sonu. 7. A touched Sonu hugged him tight. And they lived happily ever after.

I’ve often been asked, what makes a film different from another film bearing a similar storyline? My reply is, the execution of the subject makes all the difference. Recall DOOSRI DULHAN. Now recall CHORI CHORI CHUPKE CHUPKE. The issue – surrogate motherhood – isn’t new, but if handled expertly, it would make for an interesting viewing. Sadly, LIFE EXPRESS fails and fails miserably.
The serious issue has been tackled carelessly, callously and amateurishly and for this reason, it comes across as an exercise in boredom. In fact, the film falls flat at the screenplay level itself and since the direction [Anup Das] is equally unimaginative, even the talented actors in the cast fail to redeem the enterprise.BY BOLLYWOOD HUNGAMA.COM
LIFE EXPRESS tells the story of an urban couple, Tanvi [Rituparna Sengupta] and Nikhil [Kiran Janjani], who have no time to spend with each other or start a family. It also tells the story of Mohan [Yashpal Sharma] and Gauri [Divya Dutta], who lead a poverty-ridden life in a village.
The ambitious Tanvi aborts the plans of having a baby since she feels that the impending pregnancy will make her skip her job for a few months and in turn, she would lose out on the golden opportunities in her career. Subsequently, a common friend suggests the concept of surrogate motherhood and they decide to go for it.
