(Catch the 3D version if you can, its worth all the money)

With ‘Avatar’ opens a whole new realm of possibilities for 3D cinema, won’t be just animal stories we will be watching from now on.
James Cameron Sir, his hold on storytelling just as strong as it was 10 years back when he sunk the mighty ‘Titanic’… for Avatar is every bit as great an epic!

Enormous concept of Pandora, a new world invaded by resource hungry humans (Currently exploiting planet Earth) brought down in a simplified screenplay. Mauro Fiore’s Cinematography accounting the story as importantly and precisely as it captures the impossibly colourful landscapes of Pandora. Salutations to Joe Letteri, the new god of special effects, on his unimaginable work… Woof! I am already out of Adjectives and James Horner still remains to be mentioned for his music.

It starts with Jack Sully (Sam Worthington) being taken to Pandora, after his twin brother is killed in a mugging attack. His brother was a scientist working on a program to infiltrate the species of Pandora, a distant planet that houses precious minerals. Now Jack must step into his brother’s shoes, for he is the only one who can access his brother’s Avatar because of their identical DNA’s (Complicated? Don’t worry, Cameron makes it easy to understand).
Jack connects to his Avatar and is taken into Pandora beyond the army base. Pandora is hostile to infiltrators! And jack gets lost in an escapade. Night falls, so do its creatures but yet again Jack is rescued, this time by a Na’vi (The specie) female Neytiri (Zoe Saldana)!

Meanwhile, Colonel Miles Quaritch (Stephan Lang) is preparing his battalion of massive robots, aircrafts and armed soldiers to attack Pandora and it people.

The Navi’s decide to make Jack a part of their clan and teach him their traditions. While he is at it, he falls in love with Neytiri. But soon there will be war and Jack knows that, for the Na’vi people will not vacate their home tree and the program to extract the minerals that rest beneath that tree must go on.
Can he save Pandora from his race?
The story is a metaphor to what’s happening in our world, and thus is a message that we have to protect ourselves- From ‘us’… and our conquests that ignores tradition and nature, the pillars of humanity!

Amongst the actors, Zoe Saldana’s strong portrayal strikes an additional chord, while Sam Worthington is believable as the Saviour. Stephan Lang very much fills you up with hatred for his violence freak, cruel character… and others play their part well too.

So Avatar is pretty much 10 on 10 for its genre. An essential watch, enjoy with family and friends!

Rahul Mahajan’s ‘Rahul Dulhaniya Le Layenge’ not only will help him get a bride but has actually landed him with a sister, even before the show starts.Raveena Tandon will perform the role of the didi. Raveena is being paid a whopping figure to lend her moral support to Rahul Mahajan and his quest for the perfect bride.

The TV channel has roped in Raveena to play Rahul Mahajan’s sister.Ravi Kisen, who played Rakhi Sawant’s brother, in ‘Rakhi ka Swayamwar’ ended up hosting another show on the channel, Raaz Pichle Janam Ka.

Raveena was last seen as a judge on two children’shows.For the current show,with five lakhs for being didi to Rahul Mahajan,she will be the world’s best sister.

“Raveena has asked for a whopping Rs 30 lakh and the channel is offering her Rs 25 lakh for the episode,” says a source. “She normally charges around Rs 8 lakh an episode if it is a running show.”

Shailaja Kejriwal, EVP Content of the channel confirmed that talks are on with her at the moment, but nothing is confirmed yet.

What makes Rahul Mahajan a hot bachelor ?

What makes Rahul Mahajan a hot bachelor ?

The last time Rahul Mahajan got married was a little similar in some ways to this time – the whole country was talking about it but no one was sure what kind of groom Rahul was going to turn out to be.

The difference now is that Rahul then was big news, but just news. This time, he’s the best kind of celebrity there is – the kind that’s famous just for being famous, the kind who might be loved or hated, but is always, always watched.

The son of late BJP leader Pramod Mahajan has redefined celebrityhood in India in some ways – he’s never been in the news, really, for anything good. He came into the limelight three years ago, at age 31, when his father was shot dead by his uncle Pravin Mahajan. For about a month, Rahul was seen as a sort of Rajiv Gandhi redux – the responsible, grieving son, the potential inheritor of his father’s political legacy. But he shattered that when he and Pramod Mahajan’s secretary Bibek Maitra were rushed, unconscious, to a hospital in Delhi after an alleged drug and alcohol overdose. Rahul was released from hospital amid a swirling controversy after Maitra died. He was arrested by the Delhi Police on charges of drug possession and use.

After this spectacular entry into fame, Rahul rushed into an equally suspicious wedding with ‘childhood sweetheart’ and fellow pilot Shweta Singh, with everyone wondering why. After all, the dulha was fresh from his father’s demise and a drug abuse controversy. But maybe he’d sown his wild oats and learnt from tragedy.

But Rahul, it seems, is to the camera born. Scandalous rumours emerged soon after his marriage, despite occasional half-hearted denials from Rahul and complete silence from Shweta. He was allegedly beating her up, reports said. Barely a year and a half after the wedding, Shweta filed for divorce, which was granted in 2008. A few months after that, Rahul was chosen as part of a bunch of brash loudmouths and wannabes to be part of Bigg Boss 2. Rahul romanced two girls on the show, most famously ex-gangster’s moll Monica Bedi. Bigg Boss 2 ended but everyone remembers Rahul’s exit, when he broke out of the house with three remaining male inmates and chose a voluntary exit from the show after refusing to apologise for the incident.

With the show, Rahul discovered his love for notoriety. But if the number of applications for his swayamvar equivalent on TV, Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayega, is any indication to go by, drug abuse, wife beating, a messy divorce, and the lack of a bona fide job are no deterrents for marriageable girls. In fact, the show hasn’t even started, but Rahul’s begun to prove that he’s born to living out a controversial life on national television – he’s had the show dates shifted by a month on the advice of his astrologer after having the 16 shortlisted girls’ kundalis matched with his. Apparently, Rahul is serious about finding his one true love and getting married again, and he’s turned superstitious at the prospect. “A lot has happened with me in the last three years. Today is the start of a new chapter of my life a new beginning,” he said, announcing the show.

Rahul Mahajan pushes back Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jaayega

Rahul Mahajan pushes back Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jaayega

Rahul Mahajan is apparently very serious about his upcoming swayamvar which is to be aired on NDTV Imagine.

Nikhil Madhok, VP, Marketing and Communication NDTV Imagine says “Rahul, son of slain BJP leader Pramod Mahajan has asked for kundalis of all the 16 finalists to be matched with him so that there are no complications later while he chooses one of te as his better-half. Rahul has even got the launch date of his show, Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jaayega postponed in order to schedule the final on an auspicious date as fixed by his astrologer,” added the channel official.

But Nikhil got defensive when asked whether Rahul would also do a Rakhi Sawant and go back on the wedding promise. “Rakhi too wanted to get married to Elesh, but as you saw on Pati Patni aur Woh, differences arose between the couple. Rahul is a different person and he will surely follow his heart.” He also tried to justify having such colorful personalities on the show by saying no other “single” celeb is willing to get married on national television as the format demands”.

Let us hope that Rahul at least for the sake of Imagine, does find his Dulhaniya, else the channel will face a lot of embarrassing questions, a second time around.
