I've often said that 'small' or low cost films, very often, have much more to offer than several biggies that thrive on star value primarily; content is a secondary issue for these films. Ticket paying audiences insist on watching good films and that's where a strong word of mouth plays a vital part these days. Positive feedback can lure viewers even after the crucial opening weekend is over. Films like Tere Bin Laden, Udaan, Do Dooni Chaar, Phas Gaye Re Obama and Band Baaja Baaraat endorse this statement.

I genuinely believe that the audience for hi-content films is multiplying with each passing week. The viewer is willing to give his/her precious time and invest his/her hard-earned money on a film with substance, which only goes to prove yet again that content is the backbone of business, the low cost or absence of top stars notwithstanding. The day of the underdog has finally arrived.

In the 1970s, Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Basu Chatterjee popularized comedy films. The trend was carried forward by Sai Paranjpye. Early 1990s saw the emergence of David Dhawan, Priyadarshan and Anees Bazmee proving their mettle with slapstick. First-time director Srikanth V. Velagaleti merges comedy with thrill elements in his debut outing Utt Pataang and the experiment succeeds to a major extent.

Utt Pataang is a difficult film to conceptualize, pen and also execute. Besides, it requires seasoned players - known for their abilities to deliver natural performances - to get the characters right. Utt Pataang isn't one of those films that tell you to leave your brains at home. On the contrary, this one demands your complete attention. Blink an eyelid and you would miss out on a vital sequence and the narrative thereafter would only get difficult to decipher.

Utt Pataang is a smart film, which gradually sucks you into its world. What sets it apart from comic-thrillers is the fact that the entire drama takes place in a single night. At first, you wonder, hey, what happened to Saurabh Shukla? Where did he disappear from the restaurant? Then you wonder, why is Vinay Pathak's girlfriend Mahie Gill desperate to have her belongings? Much later you question, who is that look-alike of Vinay Pathak and what is he doing in his apartment? But you get your answers in the post-interval portions and the rejoinders only highlight how intelligent the screenplay is and how efficient the director has been, in terms of keeping you hooked all through those 1.50 hours.

Final word? If out of the box themes are your choice, head for Utt Pataang right away. This one's no Utt Pataang film in the name of entertainment!

Utt Pataang talks of incidents that occur in one night. Vinay Pathak is on the brink of a break up, caught in a dangerous money deal gone horribly wrong. Caught in this chase for the bagful of money is his private detective friend Saurabh Shukla, a heartbroken woman [Mona Singh], a French-obsessed gangster [Vinay Pathak, again] and the gangster's moll [Mahie Gill], all thrown into a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse chase. Layers of secrecy unfold and the game gets worse as the night wears on.

For any comic-thriller to succeed, it ought to clear the doubts -- in the most simplistic manner, mind you - before the film reaches the finale. The screenplay [writers: Saurabh Shukla and Srikanth V. Velagaleti] is almost perfect, except for an instance towards the second half. The best part about this film is that barring the simpleton Vinay Pathak, everyone has a crooked/shady side to him/her, which makes them appear very real. In fact, each one is double crossing the other and that's why you feel ecstatic.

The screenplay writers and director complement each other wonderfully well. If the writing is watertight, the direction is top notch. In fact, the writing would've gone for a toss had a lesser director wielded the megaphone. Arun Varma's cinematography captures the look of the film well. I'd like to give brownie points to the editor [Sankalp Meshram] for the sharp edit. Sanjoy Chowdhary's background score enhances the impact. Saurabh Shukla's dialogue are realistic.

Vinay Pathak proves yet again that he's a super actor. Though he's getting typecast as a simpleton, the other role - with a French fixation - is what catches your attention. Also, he gets the French accent and pronunciation right. Saurabh Shukla is remarkable all through. Mahie Gill springs a surprise. She plays a con woman who's emotionless, who's lusting for money most convincingly. Mona Singh does very well. Sanjay Mishra doesn't get much scope. Brijendra Kala is okay. Delnaaz Paul is cute. Murli Sharma and Govind Namdeo appear towards the finale. Both are perfect. Kurush Deboo is fair.

On the whole, Utt Pataang springs a pleasant surprise. It has a novel premise and what makes it even more appealing is the way the subject material has been executed. In fact, it's a difficult film to conceptualize, pen and also execute and should be appreciated by those who have an appetite for out of the box themes.

Bollywood opening doors to Hollywood and vise-verse has become a common sight. Earlier it was Pamela Aderson getting to Bigg Boss 4 clad in a sari and now it is Catrina Lopez. Catrina sister to Jennifer Lopez was seen clad in a red sari at the promotions of the upcoming film Bhindi Bazar Inc.

Miss Lopez will be seen featuring in an item number in the film Bhindi Bazar Inc. She is wearing the same sari that she is wearing in that item number. She was seen carrying the sari with ease and comfort.

Well, it will not be wrong if we say that Indian attire like sari and salwar kamiz has always been fascinating the white beauties in Hollywood. Looks like one more fan is added to the Indian attire list.

Sonu Sood's grimacing villainy in Dabangg has got him the kind of recognition no amount of goody goody roles ever did. Just when Sood was all set to unleash an avalanche of evil on screen by signing on plum villain's roles in 5 of the biggest films of 2010-11 as the chief badman, Salman Khan put a brake on Sood's diabolic plans.

No more villains' parts until the sequel of Dabangg. That's the brief given to Sood by his Dabangg hero. Confounded by the embargo, Sonu Sood has done the next best thing. He has crossed over to Chulbul Pandey's territory and is playing a cop in the two films that he has signed in 2011.

Intense preparations are on to get the nuances right. Sood recently spent a fortnight with a top cop in Punjab to understand the mind, body language and spoken language of a cop.

Says Sood, "It's true I have been told not to expend my mean muscles until Dabangg 2. Interestingly, I've signed two major cops' roles. One is a dream-come-true role in Puri Jaganaath's Buddha where I play Mr. Bachchan's son. My role is modelled on Amitji in Zanjeer."

Sonu has watched Zanjeer 17 times in the last six months. To his command over the Bachchanesque style of law enforcement in Zanjeer (including that famous body-flying-across-the-air for a full-impact hurl against the adversary that had the crowds roaring when Mr B did it in 1973 in Zanjeer) Sonu will add the inner knowledge of a cop's world.

"I've spent time with a senior of the DGP rank in Punjab, Mr. P S Gill. He has helped understand how a cop functions," informs Sood.

The law enforcement skills would help Sonu with his other role this year as well. Says Sonu, "I again a play cop in Kabir Kaushik's underworld drama Maximum. I had no intentions of doing any other film except Buddha this year. And that too another role as a cop! But when I read the script of Maximum I was bowled over. I will play this cop very differently from the one in Buddha."

These two films will take Sonu Sood to the end of this year. "And then it's back to villainy in Dabangg 2. Badman Returns," Sonu laughs his most diabolic laughter.

Hope Salman heard it.

No Salman Khan, no Dus Ka Dum. Surprised? Read on...
Looks like nothing can match up to Salman Khan's brand value and his style. His trademark television show Dus Ka Dum that carried his unique style of hosting is still fresh in every ones mind, the same is even with the makers of the show. Though they tried a lot to replace Salman with Sanjay Dutt and others as the host of the show, finally they have decided to shelve the plan for the next season of Dus Ka Dum.

Salman Khan has already been roped in for the next season of Bigg Boss 4, therefore he cannot do Dus Ka Dum this season. The show however, will wait for him and be continue from the coming year. The makers felt that the show will lose its charm without Salman. His brand value adds up to the shows TRP and credibility.

Well, here's a thumps up for that idea. What say people?

Actress Bhumika Chawla and hubby Bharat Thakur's three years marriage might end with a divorce. If reports are to be believed, the actress has filed for divorce.

It is reported that Bhumika has decided to part ways from her hubby after she heard about
Bharat's affair with a socialite. Though, he has tried to prove those rumours are baseless and wrong, it has not convinced her.

Reports also add that he is desperate to save his marriage but she wants to separate from him. To add fuel to the rumours, of late, the couple has not seen together in parties or social gatherings.

Bhumika Chawla and Bharat Thakur married on 21 October 2007 at Devlali, Nashik in a Gurdwara after dating for four years.
