The show goes on
Cineswami landed in Mumbai on Wednesday evening after a trip to Israel for the excellent Jerusalem Film Festival and was shocked but not surprised by the images of the latest round of bomb blasts unspooling on every television screen
On Thursday morning, the good citizens of Mumbai woke up and set off to work as per normal routine, their spirits dampened only by the incessant and heavy rain. The spirit of Mumbaikars has correctly been hailed and needs to be lauded again and again, but the bare fact of the matter is that this can’t go on. To return to Israel for a moment, I was stopped and frisked very often and I had to carry my passport at all times to prove my identity. While it is too much to ask for Israeli levels of security in Mumbai that has a population of 21 million, compared to Jerusalem’s tiny 800,000, is it too much to ask for a national intelligence service that is as good as Mossad, so that these attacks can be nipped in the bud?

Shahrukh Khan to go international with the ‘Mahabharata’?
The King Khan dreams of making it big as Karna, the warrior prince from the epic tale of love and valour. But is he fighting a losing battle trying to capture the story for the big screen?
What’s Shahrukh Khan’s favourite name these days? (Hint: It’s not Katrina Kaif or Priyanka Chopra!). Well, it is Karna, the character from the Mahabharata. We recently woke up to the news of Baadshah Khan planning a trilogy on the epic. Looks likes Shahrukh is addicted to SFX these days and taking the Mahabharata to the next level, techwise, is riding high on his priority list these days. So are we happy about this? After Ra.One and Don 2, we’re not sure. “I think it would be fantastic, the world’s greatest film. It would be Mahabharata made like Lord of the Rings – a triology. The world would come to see it. The inherent story is one of the most interesting in the world. There are amazing superheroes, 20 times better than X-Men – gods of sun and wind who can make fire at will. There are monsters, ghosts…it’s really awesome,” SRK says, sounding gung-ho about it.

Pakistan goes to ‘Waar’
Lollywood’s most expensive and slick film is all set to release on Valentine’s Day, and it’s not about love
That the Pakistani film industry is in seemingly irreversible decline is a well-known fact by now, dominated as it is by our Bollywood offerings. However, every once in a while, our neighbours pull off a stunning cinematic coup. For example, Shoaib Mansoor’s sensitive take on Islam in the modern age, Khuda Kay Liye, was a massive success on both sides of the border. And now, come Valentine’s Day, Warner Bros will release Bilal Lashari’s film on counter-terrorism, Waar. Alas, only in Pakistan for now with maybe a few other international playdates. At $8 million (that’s Rs 42 crore to you and me), the film is easily Pakistan’s biggest film of all time. And it stars Shaan, who Indian audiences will remember from Khuda Kay Liye and is Pakistan’s Shahrukh, Salman and Aamir all rolled into one. The film also stars Shamoon Abbasi, who is a popular television actor.
