a 3D parrot, a 2D dog, 2 brainless hunks, one ghastly woman, and a business-wise production family (did I mention that both hunks were called Prem?)

Need we mention that dark cloud that engulfes our silver lining? It's called Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon (aka MPKDH) and it's hitting theatres today. Typical to their tradition, the Barjatyas have come up with another innovation to draw audiences to see this atrocious movie: they've reduced admission rates. Someone should pelt them with CDs of Anu Malik's Eyes for this: after all, they were the ones who pioneered a hike in admission rates for Hum Aapke Hain Koun (HAHK).

While a lot of attention goes into guessing who gets Kareena in the end (like we all care!!!), perhaps the rumour that it borrows (just as HAHK borrowed merrily from Nadiya ke Paar, an old Rajshri production) from yet another old Rajshri production called Chitchor (yeah, sacrilege, what?) should help the discussion. And of course, you need more reason to stay away till DVD/VHS, Sukanya Verma is inclined to agree.

To be fair to the Rajshris though, they've had an impressively varied production list. And they also gave us Ravindra Jain... hmm, perhaps I should reconsider my niceness.

Great review of the insipid (imho) music from Anu Malik.

BTW, in case you didn't notice it, Sooraj KB has a fetish for the name Prem {Salman's character in all three of Sooraj's previous movies was called Prem}. And the fact that he now has TWO leading dudes with that name reeks of insecurity.
