Housefull 2 pays tribute to iconic on-screen fights of the 70’s

Standard

The infamous on-screen fights shared between veterans Amitabh Bachchan and Vinod Khanna in the late 70’s is soon to be recreated on screen in Eros International and Sajid Nadiadwala‘s Housefull 2.

The sequel to one of the biggest hits of the year 2010,will see lead actors Akshay Kumar and John Abraham exchange blows in an intense fight sequence executed by Action director Kawee Sirikhanaerut from Thailand action company -Seng Kawee of Rambo and Lara Croft fame.

And if sources are to be believed the famous Amitabh Bachchan-Vinod Khanna fights on-screen have served as reference points to the critical scenes shared by Akshay and John in the masala-entertainer.

Confirms director Sajid Khan “I have designed all the action sequences and used fight scenes between Amitabh and Vinod Khanna in 1970’s films like Amar Akbar Anthony, Parvarish and Khoon Pasina as inspiration”. Adding that “I haven’t used any special effects .Today, even a kid can point out fake stunt sequences. As kids, we’d count the number of punches Amitji and Vinod Khanna would throw so in the film I’ve given John and Akshay an equal number”.

Says producer Sajid Nadiadwala “ It was Sajid Khan’s dream to design such stunt sequences. And since both of us are crazy fans of Manmohan Desai and Prakash mehra, there was no debate when he created those scenes”.

Directed by Sajid Khan , starring an ensemble cast -Akshay Kumar, John Abraham ,Riteish Deshmukh, , Shreyas Talpade , Asin ,Zarine Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez ,Shazahn Padamsee , Rishi Kapoor ,Randhir Kapoor and Mithun Chakraborty , Sajid Nadiadwala and Eros International’s Housefull 2 comes to a theatre near you April 5.th,2012.

Will these 8 heroes survive the giving hits with their solo hero status?

Standard

While veteran actors like Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn haven’t shown any apprehensions about doing multistarrers (Housefull 2, Bol Bachchanrespectively) and Hrithik Roshan struck gold with Zindagi Naa Milegi Dobara last year, it is the newer bunch of actors who are trying to go solo with a vengeance. As many as eight heroes, who have made a career of doing multistarrers in the past, are now trying their luck by going solo.


They are Riteish Deshmukh, Madhavan, Irrfan Khan, Tusshar Kapoor, Sonu Sood, Sharman Joshi and Kunal Kapoor.

Comments an industry expert, “Riteish had once famously commented that it is futile to change the trend by any unnecessary experimenting. He had said so after his solo film Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai had flopped while multistarrers like Housefull and Double Dhamaal were successful. However, he is giving a solo film another shot with Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya. On the other hand, Madhavan had seen a huge success in the form of 3 Idiots but buoyed by the success of Tanu Weds Manu, he is looking at making it two in a row with Jodi Breakers, a solo release.”

Same holds good for Tusshar Kapoor who is known most for his Golmaal franchise but is now doing a solo film with Chaar Din Ki Chandni. Ditto for Sharman Joshi who, after a disastrous Toh Baat Pakki, saw respite coming in the form of 3 Idiots but is back to playing a central lead in Ferrari Ki Sawaari.

“At the end of the day every guy who enters the industry wants to be accepted as a solo lead at the least. Also, if at all any such attempts like these have to be made, they have to be within first 10 years of their career. Otherwise regardless of how talented you are, you do tend to get typecast. Arshad Warsi is a clear example as he is now mostly seen in multistarrers despite being well accepted as an actor”, a veteran shares his thoughts here.

However, there are some who are still trying their luck hard. Irrfan Khan, who has been in the movie making scene for over two decades, is taking yet another shot at going solo with Paan Singh Tomar. On the other hand Sonu Sood, who again has been in the industry for close to a decade now, hasn’t lost hopes especially after his wonderful stint down South. “Maximum may well be a game changer for him”, the veteran continues, “As an outsider he has been doing well for himself. It has been a gradual rise for him and there could be a surprise in store here.”

It is the same surprise factor that Kunal Kapoor is relying on as well. After playing a strong character role inDon 2, he is now leading the charge for the first time ever in his eight year long career with Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana. Says a prominent filmmaker on condition of anonymity, “Even if four out of these eight films succeed, it would be good news for Bollywood which is suffering from shortage of heroes. We need more than just the Khans and Kapoors.”
