10 most redundant dialogues in bollywood


The backstory, the bechari maa, the apathetic society, the difficult childhood of the hero, his having to steal medicine for a sick family member, the unruly bad man, the tragedy, the struggles of the hero, the entry of the heroine, the vengeance of the hero for our villain, oh there’s the heroine again, a song or two on hilltops and around the trees, a couple of fight scenes, the funny sidekick, the funny sidekick’s funny sidekick, the villain’s reign of 20 odd years being savaged by the return of the hero, the villain’s anger, another fight scene, oh the heroine again, the respected elder’s advice, the final fight scene, hero, heroine, true love. the end.

There was a lot going on in the movies back in the day. The story had everything from rib tickling comedy to some serious melodrama. And when I say serious I mean gut wrenching, heart clenching, tears-filling-up-the-oceans serious. Now there has to be some really heavy word play going on in the story to balance it all and churn out more than 800 movies a year. That's right. Over Eight friggin' hundred.

But bollywood has never disappointed in the dialogue department. There has never been a lack of serious stuff. Incredible performances by legendary actors that have inspired generations of film makers and actors. But that’s a story for another day. Today we talk about the really cheesy, typical bollywood masala dialogues that have been used over and over again. And again. And again. And yet strangely, they are always relevant, always fit the story and can be spoken by just about anyone in the movie. In fact, if you just collected all these dialogues, you wouldn't need much else to come up with a movie of your own.

So here we go:

1. Kaan khol ke sun lo
You know, as opposed to when you are listening kaan band karke. Just open your goddamn ears, well open them, OPEN THEM AND FUCKING LISTEN WILL YA?????!!! Well that is the basic sentiment behind this line.  

2. Inko dawa se zyada dua ki zaroorat hai
Now if the line doesn’t scare you already, let me take the pleasure of pointing out that it was usually the doctors who said this. Yes the damn doctors who were clearly not very good at their jobs and insisted every single time that ab sab kuchh upar wale ke haath me hai.

3. Kya isi din ke liye tumhe paal pos ke bada kiya tha
Melodrama we survived upon. Still do. But this line. God this line. It has been said by so many people in so many movies, there was clearly some miscommunication going on coz no one ever knew the answer to this question. pehle hi bata dete kyun paal pos kar bada kar rahe ho to baad me confusion nahi hoti. trial and error se thodi na pata chalega. picture after picture they tried finding out ki aakhir kyun paal pos ke bada kiya but alas…..!!

4. Bhagwan ke liye mujhe chhod do
I can’t top what Shakti Kapoor had to say in reply to this. Bhagwan ke liye tumhe chhod doon toh main kya karoon? I mean come on, what would he do?

5. Bhagwan maine aaj tak tumse kuchh nahi maanga
It is pretty clear by now that god had a significant role to play in every one of them films. He used to probably watch them with the same excitement as us and then suddenly hear his name and go, “Wait, I am supposed to do something now? Damn can’t a guy catch a break!” And then of course get to work and come up with miracles and shit.

6. Kanoon ke haath lambe hote hain
Well that should come in handy since we all know that kanoon andha hota hai. Tough times for kanoon in bollywood. It was abused by every policeman. Kanoon ko apne haath me mat lo. Apne aap ko kanoon ke hawale kar do. Man so much confusion. And after everything they would just say ye toh hamara farz tha and walk away. No credit whatsoever for kanoon.

7. Mera aashirwad tumhare saath hai beta, tumhe kuchh nahi hoga
Well given how we can’t explain the hero beating the shit out 50 oversized, trained, badass goons with any form of logic or reason, we might as well go the aashirwad route. Yep, I have made my peace with it.

8.  Main tumhara ye ehsaan zindagi bhar nahi bhoolunga
This to a person the hero is never going to meet again in his life. Oh wait. He is in the next scene. In the villain’s kabza no less. And he needs a favor. Who will return the favor? The hero of course. See movies teach us stuff. A good deed never goes unpaid. Unless you are Nirupa Roy. All your deeds will go unpaid in that case. Sorry.

9. Main tumhare bachhe ki maa banne wali hoon
This was almost always a bad news. Followed by either the girl jumping into a river or in front of a train or bumping into the hero who would then help her go back to the douchebag “jisne ek maasoom ladki ka fayda uthaya tha.” Damn that is some heavy shit.

10. Ab hum kisi ko mooh dikhane layak nahi rahe
You know the story. Girl goes to her family. Family kicks her out. She then proceeds to the river or the train, whichever involves a lot of walking in the backdrop of sad music, or bumps into the hero who then helps her go back to the douchebag who…………….

Oh redundant, you say? Welcome to Bollywood.

14 Most Anticipated Indian Films yet to come in 2014


So first 2 months of 2014 have passed & we had some amazing films to our company like Dedh Ishqiya, Miss Lovely, Highway & Kamal Swaroop’s cult classic Om Dar-B-Dar. We even had nausea inducing & cringe worthy masala entertainers like Yaariyaan, Jai Ho & Gunday to counteract that. With Queen getting immense critical acclaim from every front, surely 2014 looks like a great year & there is more yet to come. There are many such films yet to release in coming months of 2014 that have managed to create curiosity or buzz for them with their unique theme or star cast. So here’s a list of 14 Most Anticipated Indian Films yet to come in 2014 -

14. Peddlers
Director – Vasan Bala
Cast – Gulshan Deviah, Nimrat Kaur, Siddharth Menon & Kriti Malhotra

Vasan Bala’s debut was showcased at Cannes in 2012 but struggled to get theatrical release as no distributors wanted to invest in this tale of drugs, lust & Bombay’s portrayal as a ghost city.

13. NH 10
Director – Navdeep Singh
Cast – Anushka Sharma & Neil Bhoopalam

After stellar debut in Manorama Six Feet Under (2006), Navdeep Singh faced disappointment when his most ambitious project Rock The Shaadi – A Big Fat Punjabi Wedding meets zombie apocalypse starring Abhay Deol & Genelia D’souza was shelved. Finally he is filming his next which is a horror thriller about a road trip gone wrong. Anushka has co-produced this with Anurag Kashyap.

12. Monsoon Shootout
Director – Amit Kumar
Cast – Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Vijay Verma, Tanishtha Chatterjee & Neeraj Kabi

Amit Kumar’s Monsoon Shootout too was screened at Cannes 2013 & received extremely positive reviews. It narrates a story of a cop struggling to make a decision of killing a notorious gangster in the heavy rains of Mumbai.

11. Filmistaan
Director – Nitin Kakkar
Cast – Sharib Hashmi & Kumud Mishra

After impressing critics over various International film festivals & winning National Award for Best Feature Film in Hindi (2012), Nitin Kakkar’s Filmistaan finally gets a theatrical release. It is a satirical story of bollywood buff & wannabe actor getting abducted by an Islamic terrorist group while shooting for film in desert areas of Rajasthan.

10. Finding Fanny Fernandes
Director – Homi Adajania
Cast – Deepika Padukone, Naseeruddin Shah, Dimple Kapadia, Arjun Kapoor & Pankaj Kapur

After his mind blowing neo-noir debut Being Cyrus (2005), Homi disappointed with his sappy romance in Cocktail (2012). But with a dysfunctional Goan family on a road trip, Homi is back in action with this quirky film. Produced by Saif Ali Khan & that’s what you call an outstanding star cast. DP is on a roll!!!

9. City Lights
Director – Hansal Mehta
Cast – Rajkumar Rao, Patralekha & Geetanjali Thapa

Official remake of Oscar nominated British film Metro Manila (2013), City Lights marks second collaboration between Hansal Mehta & Rajkumar Rao who gave one of the finest biopic in Indian cinema, Shahid (2013). Produced by Mahesh Bhatt.

8. Katiyabaaz (Powerless)
Director – Deepti Kakkar & Fahad Mustafa
Cast – Real people

After commercial success of extremely hilarious satire Supermen Of Malegaon (2012), comedy-documentaries are slowly but gradually gaining their foothold in Bollywood. Based on long power cuts in Kanpur, Katiyabaaz traces the story of a man who supplies illegal electricity while local government’s angst and search for him. Best part of this documentary is that it offers stories from both perspectives. Music by Indian Ocean.

7. Ugly
Director – Anurag Kashyap
Cast – Ronit Roy, Vineet Kumar, Tejaswini Kolhapure, Rahul Bhatt & Siddhant Kapoor

The biggest disappointment of 2013 was no release of Anurag Kashyap’s dark thriller Ugly. A simple child kidnapping gets more complex as true & ugly faces of people are revealed. Hope Censor Board understands and gets away with those anti-smoking watermarks. And boy! Ronit Roy looks like a badass!!

6. Haider
Director – Vishal Bhardwaj
Cast – Shahid Kapur, Irrfan, Kay Kay Menon, Tabu & Shraddha Kapoor

VB completes his trilogy of Shakespeare adaption by adapting his Hamlet into Haider set in ‘90s Kashmir. Hope this film brings back the hero Shahid Kapur actually was (Kaminey, Jab We Met). Also it marks VB’s collaboration with his hit Maqbool pair – Irrfan & Tabu. Gulzar’s lyrics & VB’s music. Simply waiting.

5. Tumbaad
Director – Rahi Anil Barve
Cast – Sohum Shah

Anand Gandhi after tasting critical & commercial success with Ship Of Theseus is back but this time as a producer. With almost same crew as that of SOT (Pankaj Kumar as DOP & Sohum Shah in lead) Tumbaad is a period horror thriller set in pre & post independence era of Pune. For me the genre of Period Horror Thriller itself is so luring. Plus Rahi Anil Barve made an ultra dark disturbing B&W short film Maanjha which was praised by many including Danny Boyle for its unsettling theme.

4. Detective Byomkesh Bakshy
Director – Dibakar Banerjee
Cast – Sushant Singh Rajput, Anand Tiwari & Sohum Shah

Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay’s famous Bengali detective Byomkesh Bakshi is set to be revived in Bollywood by Dibakar Banerjee. Being filmed as a series, Detective Byomkesh Bakshy (first part in so-called series) will showcase young 20-something Byomkesh (Sushant Singh Rajput) solving crimes in 1940 Calcutta with his trusted assistant Ajit (Anand Tiwari). Very much similar to Sherlock Holmes series, movie will also have a super intelligent villain trying to wage war in British occupied India. Looks damn promising and yes it is being co-produced by YRF.

3. P.K.
Director – Rajkumar Hirani
Cast – Aamir Khan, Anushka Sharma, Sushant Singh Rajput, Boman Irani & Sanjay Dutt

A Rajkumar Hirani film is just not a film it is a subject for any budding filmmaker to understand how films are made, how characters are written, how editing is done & how humour is mixed superbly with narrative. Hirani has himself created a genre for himself with feel good yet intellectual films like Munnabhai Series & 3 Idiots. Teaming up yet again with Aamir Khan, Hirani’s P.K. is a religious satire on self styled god men in our country co-written by superbly talented Abhijat Joshi. Do you still need a reason to watch this one?

2. Bombay Velvet
Director – Anurag Kashyap
Cast – Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Karan Johar, Kay Kay Menon & Raveena Tandon

Based on Gyan Prakash’s book Mumbai Fables, Bombay Velvet is a neo-noir drama thriller set in ‘50s & ‘60s Bombay showcasing how Bombay transformed into a metropolis. The most interesting thing is that Ranbir Kapoor plays Street Boxer; Anushka & Raveena play Jazz singers while Karan Johar plays an egoistic Parsi Businessman (main antagonist). Also Kashyap reunites with his Dev.D team – Amit Trivedi (Music), Amitabh Bhattacharya (Lyrics) & Rajeev Ravi (DOP). Christmas 2014 will be exciting to wait for.

1. Qissa – The Tale of a Lonely Ghost
Director – Anup Singh
Cast – Irrfan, Tisca Chopra, Tillotama Shome & Rasika Duggal

Undoubtedly the most awaited film of the year is Anup Singh’s Qissa set in 1947 partitioned Punjab. It is a story of a man who raises his youngest daughter as a son. Irrfan’s power packed performance, dark theme of confused sexuality, partition, political turmoil & women oppression are reason enough to watch this Punjabi-hindi film. This film was awarded with Netpac Award for best Asian film at Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

Hope you liked the list. Feel free to comment about your most awaited/anticipated film yet to release in 2014.

A Fan’s Five Film list!


Hello hello hello! Bwoyss and gurrlss  and all you beegees out there! (I meant busy people, but for those of you who remembered the band, you are ‘Stayin alive’.)

So this is my first article on Filmistani and after wasting some good 10 minutes on choosing the topic, I came up with this! A Fan’s Five Film List! This is a list of those 5 films that I hold most special to myself. Now before I start, there are a couple of disclaimers that I think I should give so that you can criticize this article for other things like grammar and spelling mistakes. Cool? Cool!

Disclaimer no. 1 - So this is a self-indulgent article so I might digress from the point at a lot of places and start writing random things that may not be entirely necessary for the topic here. But I will try to keep it entertaining and not make it too lengthy.

Disclaimer no. 2 - The films on this list are not the most high rated films on the IMDB and may not have huge commercial or critical value to the others. But for me they managed to win the little shaktiman posed statues of mine in the Internal Shreya Award Ceremony conducted from time to time in my heart.  See I’ve never liked to call myself a movie buff even though I have been watching thousands of films on tv since I was in class 5, because for me movie watching is an extremely personal thing. I did not have friends at that time who were that much into movies so I hardly discussed anything about them with anyone. But as I grew up, I realized people take movie watching soo seriously that they start making notes on them and competing with the other movie buffs with the quality and quantity of films that they see. So when someone comes up to me and says “Dude you haven’t seen Departed?? How can you even say you have seen English films?” or “Dude! You are lying right when you say you haven’t seen The Godfather” or “DUDE!!!! You haven’t seen The Shawshank Redemption???? Drop everything you’re doing and just watch it RIGHT NOW!!” I have a few things that I say to them in my mind. Firstly, not a Dude! Stop calling me that! Secondly, I will watch whatever the fuck I want and whenever the fuck I want and now you have already spoiled the film by pissing me off and giving me your ugly face to remember while m watching the film with an already high expectation! Also, I did see all these films and loved them, so thank you. But I still prefer watching films on tv jiska I don’t even know the name or the actors or the plot or its IMDB rating! So coming back to life/the point (not my OCD, just trying to be funny), the films, on this list, have made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside for different reasons at different points of time in my life. 

Disclaimer no. 3 – For those of you who know me or not and think that I’m not retarded enough or “too school for cool” (Pink didi ke gaane ke bol)  to talk or write like this, Yes I have been watching too much of SUPERWOMAN on youtube! Also, I do have a phobia of failing-at-things-that-I-take-up-too-seriously. And also, “I guess normalcy isn’t my style” (Juno didi ki line)

Disclaimer no. 4 – For people who might read the article and think that it was like finding a needle in the haystack, let me enlighten you by saying “itna hi hota hai” (Theseus ji ki nauv ki line. Nauv ne nahi kaha, picture mein tha)

So now that I have established that my attention span is a little more than that of a two year old, let’s move on to the list of my special films and end this list of disclaimers right here.  

Shall we? Le go!

 Spoiler Alert!

  •       Paulie – Now the reason why this film is special to me has less to do with the film but the time when my level of understanding of things was on the verge of puberty. Yes this is the first English film that I remember watching as a child on tv. I had seen Titanic and the Golden Eye, 007 in the theatre with my parents and I can’t recall if I saw this film before or after them, but I remember spending an entire afternoon after school alone in the house, watching this film. Honestly before writing this article, I did not even know the name of this film and just for this article I googled “talking parrot film” and got its name, Paulie. I saw the trailer as well, just to relive that evening and try and remember what exactly makes me remember this film out of the many that I have seen when I was young. For starters I think it was the talking parrot that got my attention. Paulie is a parrot in the film that does not repeat words that he is taught but is actually able to have a proper conversation with humans. I think somewhere at the back of my mind I had started considering the possibility of the film being a documentary. But the real entertainment of the film that made it so special for me was the fact that this talking ability of his, got him in all kinds of trouble. Almost giving me a lesson that sometimes ignorance can be bliss and knowledge can be dangerous, even for a parrot with super powers! So the film went a step ahead of just entertaining a 12 year old me and overwhelmed me with the magic of storytelling. I still haven’t watched the IMDB rating of this film and would not recommend it to anyone just to avoid any criticism about it


  • .       Towel Head – Although, like I made it clear earlier, I hate recommendations, this film was recommended to me by a friend, who I kinda hold responsible for killing my big lawyer dreams and getting me interested in this film business. The film is about this teenage arab-american girl who is having puberty troubles. Her parents are divorced and exist at poles when it comes to taking care of a child, let alone a teenage arab-american girl struggling with puberty. The mother is too modern whose boyfriend is a pervert and can only see a vagina in the species called women. The father is too orthodox who does not let his daughter use tampons. The girl develops feelings for her new neighbour, a married man whose wife is pregnant I think. She tries hard to hide her feelings for him but the guy (Harvey Dent actor) comes to know and starts reciprocating after little hesitation. One day he ends up raping her. Of course he gets arrested etc. and the film reaches its climax. The special part of the film for me comes here. The girl is sitting with Harvey Dent’s wife (who is the brave lady to call the police on her husband when she finds out, actually Harvey Dent makes the phone call in his guilt….whatever watch the film) and confesses to her that she is partly responsible for the entire mishap. The beauty with which this conversation proceeds made me long for somebody to talk to me like that when I feel guilty of complaining about someone who gets a thrashing because of me, when I might also have done something which led to his unjustified reactions. Again this film may not have the same effect on everyone but for me it was beyond expectation.


  •   .       Persepolis – Ok. So this film became special to me because it was made on the book Persepolis which was the first graphic novel that I managed to read. Now I am not much of a reader, infact after years of trying big font, thin novels and short story reading, I have officially stopped being so hard on myself and made peace with the fact that people who don’t read books are not all that dumb as propagated to be! When I picked up the novel, I knew that there was a film already made on it and you can understand my temptation to just watch the film instead of giving up on the book after the first few pages. But then it was a book with pictures. So I thought I should give it a try. I absolutely loved the book. But being a hard core movie goer I immediately sat down to watch the film as well. The film still managed to work on me brilliantly. And so my little Shaktiman posed Statue Award found itself a winner.

  • .       All about eve – Now hold your horses before all you IMDB maniacs who target the top 250 list as your life time goal start accusing me of my disclaimer that the films in this list are not highly rated etc. Yes it is a brilliant famous film but it is black and white! And for an ignorant person like me black and white films automatically mean “Might be good and all but BORING” Of course after watching this film, that notion for me has considerably changed! So when I started watching this film, after watching a couple of disappointing chick flicks, it was a new world altogether. The film is about a girl called Eve who is a crazy stalker of her favourite actress. She spends days and nights standing outside the theatre where the actress performs her play. Eventually the actress notices her and invites her to live with her in her house. The journey of Eve from being the crazy stalker of this actress to eventually taking her place in her future projects is very entertaining with the brilliant dialogue writing of the film. But again the film became special to me (apart from all the black and white entertainment explanation that I gave earlier) when the film without being judgmental about this character, Eve, gives us a glimpse of the existence of that vulnerability in all of us. I mean even the best and most righteous people I know, could have done the same thing that Eve did, to that actress.  
Also Marilyn Monroe did a chindi cameo in the film. That makes it the only film of hers that I have seen!

Bas thak gayi yaar likhte likhte! Acha bas one more.

  •      Main, meri patni aur vo -  Ab is film ke baare mein zyada kuch kya kahen? Mithlesh Babu ne dil jeet liya! And this film was special to me because I have not seen a lot of Bollywood classics. So this film made me become as respectful of Indian filmmakers as I was of Hollywood people. Mithlesh’s short-heighted insecurity resonates with all of us feeling insecure about ourselves when we have a crush on the cutest girl or boy in school or college and occasionally makes us thank our stars that that crush did not give in to our persuasion of being with them and made us get on with our lives to pursue better things after facing some disappointment. Again, this argument and interpretation of mine is debatable and not the only thing that I took away from the film.


Phew! I think I am done! There are a lot of other films that are special to me and could not make their place in this list because I cannot think of them right now and a list of 5 is preferable to non-readers like me to give such articles our precious time. A list of 6 is bloody lengthy!

So Thankyou for reading this and for people who found it lame …..haan to agli baar mat padhna yaar, matlab aisa bhi kya hai.

Also Don’t vote for Modi!

Cheap publicity stunt? Sowwy!

So give me some comments about the article and if you are a fan too, give me a list of your five films as well, along with the reasons why they are there! I promise to read it even if it is a list of 7 or 8! And don’t think too much, just do! Because when we think too much, we don’t do! And if you do, do ……don’t do yahan, do vahan jhaadi ke peeche.  (‘Joke’ – Kangna didi style in Queen) Also for those of you who remembered Chandler and Pheobe with the “do, do” give yourself a V. V. Good and two stars with a red pen on your friends notes copy!

        Acha chalo bye!

5 hindi movies castings that misfired badly...


They say, in order to be successful, you need to be at the right place at the right time, and if we talk about movies, especially Hindi Movies, this seems to be more than mere conjuncture. Almost every big star had their big moment, when any big star, at their prime, left a role that was unique/bold as per their times and thereby paving way for a relatively new comer to show his/her skills, e.g. Amitabh Bachchan got the famous role of Zanjeer after the role was rejected by almost every big star at that time including Rajesh Khanna and Dev Anand.
Today, we will not talk about these cliched instances; rather we will look at the other way around. Let’s see all those movies/roles which were meant for someone else and the roles were offered to another actor/actress and the later couldn’t do justice with the tailor-made roles.

#5: Amitabh Bachchan/Jackie Shroff : King Uncle
This 1993, Rakesh Roshan directed movie was about a rich guy who hate poor people and kids because of a traumatized childhood. The role of the protagonist was earlier offered to Amitabh Bachchan. He turned down because of his semi-retirement in mid 90s. AB did come back from his retirement and after some forgetful movies like Lal Baadshaah, acted in various movies as an elderly strict father with strict rules only to melt down in the climax, similar to the plot of King Uncle. Had he acted in this movie, he would have saved the Indian audience from an awful looking Jackie Shroff with the worst ever moustache-job and a failed attempt of rib-tickling humor. May be this could be the first confrontation in Hindi movies between the then lesser known actor SRK and AB!

#4: Karishma Kapoor/Twinkle Khann: Mela
Although this is a proven fact that the 2000 flick Mela was awful in every sense and even an actor of the caliber of Aamir Khan could not save it from sinking, but here is a unique trivia: Director Dharmesh Darshan’s original choice for this movie was Karishma Kapoor, the trio (Dharmesh Darshan, Aamir Khan, Karishma Kapoor) previously collaborated for the Superhit Raja Hindustani. Kapoor left the project citing date issues and so Twinkle Khanna was roped in. Dharmesh Darshan was so much obsessed with Karishma Kapoor’s look in Raja Hindustani that he made Twinkle Khanna to wear the same clothes and wigs. Twinkle Khanna clearly lacked all the oomph and latkas and jhatkas for a role which was never meant for her thereby contributing for the biggest disaster of that year!

#3: Aishwarya Rai/Manisha Koirala: Mann
This 1999 movie, directed by Indra Kumar, was earlier offered to Aishwarya Rai. She could not do it because of prior date commitments, after which the role went to Manisha Koirala. Despite having a interesting plot, Aamir Khan’s presence and a good opening, the movie was a Box-Office Average courtesy a lackluster performance by the aging superstar Manisha Koirala. Many trade analysts attributed the fact that the movie lacked fresh appeal. Cinema goers could not digest a rich Casanova failing for Manisha Koirala. Interestingly, at the same time Aishwarya Rai’s Hum Dil De Chuke released and it fared well!


#2: Kajol/Rani Mukherjee: Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna
This 2006 Karan Johar movie was earlier offered to Kajol, which she said no, because her character was shown to do infidelity with her husband. The role was then passed on to Rani Mukherjee who was supposed to play Preity Zinta’s character. According to Karan Johar, the casting and infidelity factor were written keeping in mind an elderly lady being married to a young Abhishek Bachchan and a relatively younger lady married to ShahRukh Khan and thus the audience will more understand why their respective marriage is not working. This movie is a classic example of casting went wrong.

#1: Sanjay Dutt/Anil Kapoor: Trimurti
The 1995 Shubhash Ghai multi-starrer movie was supposed to star Sanjay Dutt and after he went jail in TADA case, the role was given to Anil Kapoor. This was a role tailor-made for Sanjay Dutt, as someone who doesn’t believe in ideologies, sets his own rule, has his own style quotient and even the antagonist of the movie fears him. This role had Sanjay Dutt written all over it. 

Bonus Round:
If you think, this happens with only the actor/actress read this:

Shekhar Kapur/Satish Kaushik: Roop Ki Raani Choron Ka Raja
The movie Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja, was earlier supposed to be directed by Shekhar Kapur, following their successful collaboration in Mr. India. Once he left midway, Satish Kaushik was roped in to complete the movie and as a result the movie suffered with poor screenplay and script and was a box-office disaster.
