Quick Hits

Watching for Peepli Live and Aisha, both opening soon. Haven't seen Tere Bin Laden or Once Upon a Time in Mumbai (not playing near me). Intrigued by upcoming Rahul Bose starrer Mumbai Chakachak (fall 2010). (Uh, Mr. Bose, what's going on with Moth Smoke?) Still waiting for confirmation on Dhoom 3 cast: Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai, Hrithik Roshan, Uday Chopra, Bipasha Basu and.... drum roll... Aamir Khan. If that cast is right, am guessing a 'takes a thief" kinda thing with Jai and crew working with Aryan to catch Aamir's crook...would be a lot of fun as director Sanjay Gadhvi is full of surprises...

AND...

Is this Akshay Kumar's desi ice hockey movie, reported to be in the works last year? I am very keen on this. If so, am guessing there'll be cameo for NHLer Manny Malhotra :) The story is reportedly about how ice hockey unites people in Canada. More when I get more info (and have more time.)

Go see Udaan, an excellent "Hindi Indie" film, with rave reviews from both Indian and Western critics (and moi).
