more RGV goodies in the pipeline

The official page for Vaastu Shastra begins with a contest: you tell The Factory (incidentally, that site doesn't seem to work well in Mozilla) about a scary experience that you have had, and you stand a chance to win. Skip the contest and you get to the main page (incidentally, that montage introducing the main page is quite effective) of the film. Sushmita Sen deserves kudos for agreeing to play a character called Jhilmil(!!!). Liked the main motif. And hopefully, the Factory will begin churning out more movies. I'm getting sick of the unimaginative trashcan truffle that Bollywood continues to keep generating. Unfortunately that little tricycle gives me vibes of The Shining. In fact, the premise strongly echoes the King novel/Kubrick film. Here's hoping there's more beyond the initial similarities ... And with director Sourabh Usha Narang do we have another Sanjay Leela Bhansali (aka taking your mother's name for your middle name ...). Nice cello bit in the preview. Quite slick and effective overall (and JDC's new look is cool). And I love the tagline ("It won't save you"). Minor caveat: the previews say "This September", although the film is slated for an October release.

It's old news by now that in addition to being in RGV's Godfather homage Sarkar, the Big B will also figure in an RGV-directed segment for Darna Zaroori Hai

Pity that the controversy over the tagline for Madhyanam Hatya forced RGV to abort the release of Jaan Bujh Ke (both Galti Se and Jaan Bujh Ke shared similar elements with different motivations and consequences of a ghastly act of murder ...)
