BOMBAY TIMES (May 26, 2012)
Abhishek Anand, who debuts with Chakradhaar, hails from Delhi and is a law student. With no connections in B-Town, he took a great risk in coming to Mumbai. And thus began his tryst with producers, directors and scriptwriters as he desperately hunted for a story that woud not only sync with his personality and but also display his acting skills.
“When I heard Arsh’s Chakradhaar, I knew this was just the right subject for me,” he said. Anand adds, “Chakradhaar is an honest man’s fight against corruption. I play this university topper who gets to know about the underhand dealings at his college and in the field of education. There’s this politician who tries to knock me out of the picture. How my character goes through a complete transition and settles scores with the politician and his brothers forms the crux of the film.”
Abhishek says that the plot of the film is based on a true-life incident that transpired in Benares. “It happened a few years ago but was not highlighted by the media. It is one the reasons why we shot the film in the city. We completed the shooting in 58 days flat,” he reveals, beaming with pride.
Besides Abhishek, the film also stars Urvashi Sharma and Vidya Malvade. Directed by Shakur Sir and produced by Bharat Anand, Chakradhaar is presented by Sir JVM Movies Pvt Ltd and releases June 15.
Parag Maniar (BOMBAY TIMES; February 28, 2012) Actors Sachiin Joshi and Urvashi Sharma tied the knot recently. The couple is still reeling under the excitement of marital bliss. Interestingly, it was on Valentine’s Day that Sachiin popped the question to Urvashi. The excited bride tells us, “I called and asked about his plans on V-Day. He said that a cozy dinner would do. In fact, he even said he was busy and unsure of making it for dinner.”
Urvashi says they finally made it to a restaurant for dinner, when out of the blue, in typical filmi style, Sachiin got down on his knees and fished out a huge diamond ring and proposed marriage. “Imagine my shock! He was pretending the entire time. It was the best day of my life and I will never forget this year’s Valentine’s Day,” says Urvashi.
Sachiin adds, “She thought it would be a usual date. She was zapped at the proposal. It was an emotional moment.”
Sachiin and Urvashi first met through common friends at a party. Reveals Sachiin, “We soon began going out. One day, I asked her if she was serious about a relationship with me. It’s been over two years since we’ve been together, so marriage was the obvious next step.”
Urvashi says Sachiin has always made her feel secure. “I used to long to be with him. He is sensitive too. That is one quality I really love about him,” she says. As for Sachiin, it was Urvashi’s innocent and straightforward nature that swept him off his feet. “I like her honesty. Urvashi is very transparent, very More >

Till a few years ago, words like ‘honour killings’ and ‘khap panchayat’ were unknown for most of the urbanites. But today, after reading the horrors of the same in newspapers, we are not only aware but also detest them. I often think how people can be so heartless that they are ready to kill their own offsprings for the sake of ‘honour of caste’? The brother, who grew up with his lovely sister, feels no remorse when murdering her; the mother feels no guilt when her son or daughter gets killed in front of her eyes…how is it possible? However, it is indeed possible and still happening in the interiors inspite of (feeble) government action and media reportings. Aakrosh, dealing partly with this issue, creates the right impact. It’s a terrific no-nonsense film that wonderfully exposes the system of merciless killings, the so-called ‘honour killing’!
The story of the movie: A lower caste guy, Dinu, and his 2 friends visit a small village, Jhanjhar, in Bihar and soon get disappeared. When their whereabouts aren’t known for 2 months, the pressure of the students in Delhi, where the missing guys belonged to, along with that of media increase considerably, forcing the government to appoint CBI officers Siddhant Chaturvedi (Akshaye Khanna) and Pratap Kumar (Ajay Devgn) to investigate the matter. Pratap was a localite and hence was well aware about the prevailing mindset. However, finding the truth becomes difficult for the duo. The local police and the corrupt More >
Kumar Mangat’s Aakrosh, directed by Priyadarshan, has Mangat’s daughter Amita Pathak in a key role. However, Priyadarshan had to chop off her song from the film and was very jittery to convey it to the producer-cum-father.
Being the only song picturised on Amita, the director took the help of Ajay Devgn to act as a mediator. Kumar Mangat confirmed, “Yes it is true. Priyan chopped the song which was picturised on Amita and also Urvashi Sharma. Ajay told me that Priyan is not able to tell me this but he has chopped the song since it was slowing down the film. However I said it’s fine since it is for the film and we have to make a film for the audience. If the song was adding to the length of the film, then I am fine with my daughter’s scenes being chopped.”
The Akshay Kumar-Priyadarshan combo has worked wonders in the past and hence a lot was expected from Khatta Meetha. Although it surely engrosses in those 2.30 hours, the film falters as it is promoted as a comedy and satire and both of which the film is not! Moreover, the film has a nice story to tell but doesn’t offer anything new. It throws light on the corruption that is rampant everywhere, something that is seen umpteen number of times in our cinema. Nevertheless, Akshay’s performance and Priyadarshan’s direction ensures that the film keeps you hooked from the first scene to last and doesn’t let you leave the theatre dissatisfied even with a flawed product!
The story of the movie: Sachin Tichkule (Akshay Kumar) is a road contractor in Phaltan taluka of Maharashtra who’s struggling to make ends meet. The municipality isn’t delivering him the cheque for his services while Sachin has to pay the due to his workers and owes money to every tom, dick and harry. To make matters worse, the new municipal commissioner Gehna (Trisha Krishnan) turns out to be his ex-girlfriend with whom he had an ugly break-up in college. His father (Khulbhushan Kharbanda) is ashamed of Sachin while his brother-in-laws laugh at him. Still, Sachin dreams big and hopes that he’ll be successful one day. Will he?
Khatta Meetha begins wonderfully with Akshay Kumar singing bhajan that sets the mood. In the next 20 minutes, almost all the important characters are introduced and More >

When Priyadarshan and Akshay Kumar join hands, you expect the cineplex to reverberate with laughter. Let’s not forget, the team has regaled us with some terrific entertainers in the past. Naturally then, you expect KHATTA MEETHA to take the legacy forward.
Unfortunately, KHATTA MEETHA is noise [the actors scream a lot in this movie], more noise [the great promotion] and only noise, while the content takes a complete backseat. Although KHATTA MEETHA shouldn’t be compared to this combo’s earlier works, since this one’s a satire, I have to add that this is their weakest film to date.BY BOLLYWOOD HUNGAMA.COM
The first question I asked myself once the movie got over was, what’s the story? Okay, okay, neither did Priyadarshan’s last few films had a story to tell, but when you attempt a satire, when one talks of the hardships faced by the common man, when one talks of corruption in society, there HAS to be a story in place. That goes without saying!
KHATTA MEETHA raises a finger at the corruption in government establishments, but what it tries to say, or expose, has been witnessed over and over again. In fact, it’s the writing — sorry, the absence of it — that makes matters worse. The beginning is good, the middle falters and the end is exasperating.
Final word? This one’s far from being meetha. It’s a khatta experience!
Struggling road construction contractor Sachin Tichkule [Akshay Kumar] is doomed. There is no More >
