Tezz: The Review

Movie:  Tezz Credits:  Director: Priyadarshan Cast: Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Zayed Khan, Boman Irani, Sameera Reddy, Kangana Ranaut, Mohanlal It’s hard to appreciate this Ajay and Anil starrer 'Tezz' since there are no pleasant surprises except that the basic premise is a complete riff off from several Hollywood films. And while spotting references, one can easily identify that the soul of this outdated action film is taken from Keanu Reeves' ‘Speed’ and has traces of Ravi Chopra’s 1980 film ‘Burning Train’. Despite the film falling short on being an impressively gritty action thriller, Tezz is reasonably fast paced and packs a punch for its high- ...

My Love Affair With Bollywood
Koimoi - almost 5 years
Marinelle Szenasy is a loyal Bollywood fan and loves her item number and Khans. The girl from Texas talks about her love for all things Bollywood on Koimoi.com: My love of movies started as a child in Central Texas. My late father was a big movie buff, and the two of us spent many Saturdays at the local cinema. There were numerous times over the years that the two of us would find ourselves glued to the TV, watching a movie together. As I became older, I became very disillusioned with American cinema. (The truth be told, I’m a bit conservative.) The plotlines and emphasis on special effects just didn’t do anything for me. Maybe my age was beginning to tell on me, but it seemed that movies in the U.S. were being geared for a specific demographic – 18 to 34 year old males. And I certainly didn’t fit in that group. So what’s a 58 year old married woman living in Granbury,Texas to do? Salman Khan in a still from Marigold Movie One night, a couple of years ago, I was channel surfi ...

Ajay Devgn: Changing it up
The Express Tribune Blogs - almost 5 years
In his career of over two decades actor Ajay Devgn has dabbled in almost all genres of film, but that hasn’t stopped him from experimenting with his roles.“I want to try to balance drama, action and comedy. I want to do every genre and am ready to experiment with my roles. I don’t want to let my producers or directors down,” IANS reports Devgn as saying. His last release Singham crossed the INR1 billion at the box office and even though he embraced his success well, the actor says this level of popularity and fame frightens him. “It feels great when you are a part of film reaching the one billion mark.
