Shruti Haasan and her Houdini act!

Shruti Haasan and her Houdini act!
Shruti Haasan's name appears in the credit lines as an actor who performed in ROCKY HANDSOME, John Abraham's latest, which released last week. I wonder why she even agreed to let her name appear on screen when she hardly had any screen time or any dialogue to mouth when all one saw was John Abraham and his fights on screen.

Probably, the girl made her money for appearing on screen but what did it do to tell of her acting prowess? That role could have been played by any lesser-known actress. I understand that it is the strength of the role, not the length that matters for any actor. But here, there was no length, nor strength.

I dare say that Shruti has a powerful role in the pan masala Ad with Ajay Devgn that we often see on television. Though just a few seconds in length, Shruti does enough with her facial expressions to make an impact.

In ROCKY HANDSOME, all that was required of her was to appear in a flashback with no dialogues, no performance… not even emote through body language!


Urvashi Sharma-Joshi comes out of her Naqaab!
Urvashi Sharma, now Joshi, made a formidable start to her Bollywood career in NAQAAB. She had the critics and filmgoers alike warming up to her. But she soon disappeared, settled down to marital bliss, got busy with her daughter, Kuku, and started taking care of the business with her husband. However, once an actor, always an actor: Ask Madhuri Dixit!

The talented actress will now be seen in Paritosh Painter's play ‘Selfie' which hits the theatres sometime this week.

In front of an audience after a gap of five years, Urvashi is nervous, scared, petrified as well as excited. “All these emotions are going through me,” confesses the actor who will be seen on stage in front of a ‘live' audience, years after she was active on stage during her school days. Life comes a full circle, she says.

Throwing light on her appearance she adds, “I'm supported with lovely girls and an amazingly efficient team.” And how confident are you, I ask, considering this is on stage and with no retakes? “I'm quite confident of my first play and I'm loving every bit of it,” she replies confidently.

Here's hoping to see Urvashi shine on stage, and then back on the big screen!

Did John Abraham let Kamat down?
I don't know if it was John Abraham who pushed director Nishikant Kamat to play the villain in ROCKY HANDSOME. But if reports are to be believed, [and I read somewhere Kamat say, “John feels I have very intense eyes, so I can easily play the villain,”] I guess John did have a hand in letting Kamat down!

NISHIKANT KAMAT AND HIS EXPRESSIVE EYES...
NISHIKANT KAMAT AND HIS EXPRESSIVE EYES...

Now, I am not saying Kamat is a bad actor. Maybe he has good eyes. But what he did as Kevin Ferreira in the movie is nothing short of comical. Villains like these were seen in the eighties: loud, over-the-top, almost making fun of themselves. Kamat does all of these things and more. And yes, he does use his eyes and they are expressive, but maybe he could express them for some other role.

If at all a villain has to make an impact it has to be like Vidyut Jammwal. It was in Kamat's film FORCE that Vidyut made a menacing villain, someone of who even Gabbar will be scared of. And yes, Vidyut does have nice, expressive eyes (just like Kamat's), but he never made a nuisance with his expressions.
