Saif Ali Khan may not have had a great 2017, what with his movies Chef and Rangoon, tanking so severely at the box office. 2018 seems to be a turning point for the Nawab of Bollywood. With just a day to go for the release of his much awaited movie, Kaalakaandi, here are five reasons you just HAVE to watch the movie!
1. Saif Ali Khan
Okay I know this is an obvious one but it just HAS to be mentioned as a reason to watch the movie. Kaalakaandi is a dark comedy that revolves around Saif’s character that flips after a major life changing incident. Saif’s portrayal of this particular character is shown in an interesting manner in the trailer and is definitely worth a watch!
2. The Director
Kaalakaandi has been directed by director Akshat Verma. He has proved time and again that he is a force to be reckoned with especially because of the different films he makes. He had previously written the script for Delhi Belly, a movie that changed the comedy genre in every way! The Kaalakaandi trailer has already started the debate of it being similar to Delhi Belly but as long as a compelling script is teamed up with good direction and a quality set of actors, we don’t really mind.
3. The Ensemble Cast
2018 seems to be a year for ensemble casts. Kaalakaandi boasts of an ensemble cast that is very similar the Delhi Belly cast. Apart from Saif Ali Khan, Kaalakaandi also stars Deepak Dobriyal, Vijay Raaz and Kunaal Roy Kapur. Raaz was seen in Monsoon Shootout and Kunaal was also there in Delhi Belly. Kaalakaandi also has Neil Bhoopalam, Shobhita Dhulipala, Isha Talwar, Nary Singh and Akshay Oberoi. This movie is definitely going to be worth a watch!
4. The Story Itself
Movie aside love stories and romedies, it is time for a new and exciting world in Bollywood! The story of Kaalakaandi is a dark comedy that is based on three different stories in the underbelly of Mumbai. One night. Three stories. Three versions. Quite interesting, right? I definitely think so!
5. Based On The Mumbai Underworld?
Kaalakaandi also works in the cause-and-effect relation between Mumbai and its dark and neglected underbelly, the underworld. According to Akshay Verma himself, the characters are based on the fringes of the underworld and are going to be very real like. I have always tried to picture what the underworld really looks like and to see it unfold on screen is going to make for an interesting watch!
FIR Filed Against Salman Khan And Katrina Kaif For Casteist Remarks
Late Yesterday, a petition for an FIR was filed in a Delhi Court against Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif. According to reports, the two actors had allegedly made casteist remarks during the promotion of their latest movie, Tiger Zinda Hai.
The court listed the matter for consideration for 27 February and also sought a reply from the Delhi police on the complaint. The plea, filed in the Patiala House Court, alleged Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif had made remarks which were insulting, derogatory and affected the sentiments of a particular cast.
The complaint, filed by Harnam Singh, a former Chairman of Delhi Commission for Karamcharis, alleged the remark was made by Khan during a programme on a television channel while Kaif, “rather than protesting at the offensive and insensitive statement, joined the accused number 1 (Khan) in insulting and abusing the victim through her conduct.”
An inquiry has been led into this matter and the Delhi police have said they will look into the matter and get to the bottom of this issue as soon as possible.
Pari Teaser 5 Will Make You Lose Your Sleep
Holi, the festival of colours, has different connotations. For some, it is the defeat of good over evil while for others, it is about the colours. For Anushka Sharma on the other hand, it is about her new horror flick, Pari.

The opening shot of this teaser features a pale white Anushka walking in a jungle while a full moon can also be seen in the background. Yes, this is the first clip from Pari that places Anushka outside her house and in the classic horror movie setting.
She walks to a pond and when she looks into it, she sees the bloody, battered Anushka looking right back at her. As a result, the fish of the pond begins to die and soon the pond is full of dead fish floating on its surface. The tone of this teaser is perfect.
Every part of this teaser is imbibed in horror and from the way it has been directed, one gets the feeling of Anushka being haunted by a ghost like dopple ganger. Watch the brand new teaser here!
Directed by debutant director Prosit Roy, Pari is not your average fairy tale. Also starring Parambrata Chatterjee, Rajat Kapoor and Ritabhari Chakraborty, this movie is going to be Clean Slate Films third production venture after NH10 and Phillauri. Pari is scheduled to hit the screens on 2 March, 2018 so this Holi, stay clean and safe! While we wait for the film to hit the screens, check out the new poster here.
