Mangal, Mangal...

The most awaited film opens this week as "Mangal Pandey- The Rising" opens to audiences worldwide. It certainly is the biggest film this year and most people have gargatuan expectations. Starring Aamir Khan, Rani Mukherji, Amisha Patel and Tobey Stephens, it's the story of the 1857 Rebellion led by Mangal Pandey (played by Aamir Khan). It releases in Hindi and English.

Lots has been said about the movie so I don't have much to say about it. As far as the international reviews go, they haven't been very good. IndiaFM has said it's a good film. Personally, I believe a lot hinges on this movie for Aamir Khan. If this is a hit, it's going to really catapault his career and have him firmly competing with Shah Rukh Khan. If it does internationally, we might see Aamir going west ! Also, it'll really increase the expectations for "Rang De Basanti"...................

Next time, I'll be having a look at Hrithik Roshan. Yep, the guy who made hearts with Kaho Na Pyar Hai and brought sympathy with Koi..Mil Gaya.
