Published

on

First there was the webseries  Applause Entertainment’s  Humble Politician Nagraj then  Amazon  Prime Video’s  feature  film  One Cut Two Cut …Both have been widely liked. Suddenly comedy actor Danish Sait is  a household name.

Says Danish  excitedly,  “I am living an extended childhood. This is all I know and this is all I can do. Creating content and  having fun is what I know best! And I love it! I’m so lucky that people enjoy and appreciate my work.It  has been an exciting journey and it feels good that people recognize me and appreciate my work.Both Humble Politician Nograj and  and One Cut Two Cut  were  character sketches that  turned out to be a companion for many people during the lockdown and quarantine phase. I started these videos as a mode to keep people entertained during these times. Gradually, people started suggesting me topics to come up with a sketch on. I am glad and honored to that I am able to create content that people are enjoying and hopefully they will continue to enjoy.”

 How did  Danish  land up as a star in Karnataka?  “I started working as an RJ with Fever FM in Bengaluru. Gradually I moved to content creation and making people laugh through character sketches and since then, as they say, rest is history. I didn’t land up as a star, and I don’t think I am still a star. There’s a long way to go for me.”

Comedy is  known to be a dangerous companion Comedy is a very dangerous vocation in India. Danish says he is  careful about his  words. “I started as an RJ, and as an RJ you have to be extremely cautious of the things you say or don’t say. And that became the rails for the kind of content that I do. I think you can get away with it sometime. I am coming on the back of a political satire which hasn’t gotten into any trouble. Even with One Cut Two Cut, there is an undertone of social commentary and my team and I have generally emerged unscathed. There are reasons for this. When we sit down to write, we are very cognizant of the lines or limits inside our heads. We know that this thin line could be pulled back at any point in time but the only way to navigate around it is to be humble and apologise and move on to what is next.”

Danish’s pidgin English in One Cut Two Cut is  a hit.

Commenting on this  the comedy actor says, “It’s just the way my character Gopi in One  Cut two Cut  speaks. I observe a lot and I pick up many things from people and use in my characters. Sometimes I pick up a person’s tone, tonality, mannerisms and club them to make one character.

 Danish’s sister  Kubra Sait is  an actor. He  says he is  very close to her. “We are very close to each other and we always appreciate each others’ work. We have collaborated for our YouTube sketches in the past and it has a been a great fun.”

He sees  himself as a  multi-tasker. “I never thought about it. I have always done multiple things at time. I have dabbled with radio, events and also created content for Instagram, cricket, films at the same time.  So I’ve always done multiple things at the same time. I think you need to constantly reinvent yourself as an artist. I don’t think I can live with a solitary career.”

 When asked  to name  his favourite comic actors Danish replies instantly, “My most favourite actor of all time is Sacha Noam Baron Cohen, I am a fan. I once had an opportunity thanks to Amazon Prime Video to work with him. But I’d love to meet him again and work with him as well.”

Love Jihad, whatever  that means, is  the theme  of  Anurag Kashyap’s new film Almost Pyaar  With D  J Mohabbat.

Debutant Karan  Mehta plays a Muslim boy  in an intense relationship with  Alaya F who plays  a Hindu  girl.Kashyap has spared the  audience none of the ugliness that  such a relationship generates  among  social-media  bouncers, the self-styled  guardian of morality .

In the hardhitting powerful and pertinent film  a  bigot is heard commenting snidely, “These people first talk about Mohabbat. Then  they talk about Mohammed.”

Happily and  surprisingly,  the Central Board Of Film Certification gave the  film a ‘UA’ certificate  with no  cuts: a  rare non-‘A’ film of Kashyap.

So far  Kashyap and his  team have kept the Love Jihad part  of  the plot  out of all media interaction.

But the  cat is  now  out of the bag.

Bollywood’s Achche Din Have Come

Published

on

 Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar

All you doomsday  prophets, the  booms-day  profits  are here.  Pathaan  has  opened the floodgates again for Bollywood’s  bumper  bonanza at the  boxoffice.And now there is  only the achche din ahead  for  Hindi  cinema.

In the  next   two months there are  three sureshot  blockbusters coming up, beginning with Shehzada.  An astute devilishly impish  adaptation  of  Allu Arjun’s  2020 Telugu   blockbuster  Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo.The super-popular Kartik  Aaryan gives  his own  spin to the  character. This  performance will take   Kartik to the  next level of stardom. Kartik’s version of  Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo is  radically different  from  its Telugu  version. Shehzada  takes  the core idea of  the Telugu original  and turns it into a  something  completely different. Kartik’s  co-star in Shehzada  is  Kriti  Sanon with whom he earlier shared superhit space in Lukka Chuppi.

 Then there  is Luv Ranjan’s ravishing rom-com   Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar. The director’s   male viewpoint on the chaos  of love relationships  crests to a comic  high in his latest. Ranjan  for  the first time, collaborates with Ranbir Kapoor for the  first time  collaborates with Shraddha  Kapoor  who badly needs a hit.This film should do the  trick. The winsome  lead pair tries  to do one  another  in a  game of Luv This is Luv Ranjan’s Hum…Aapke Hain Con. Ranjan  has in the past used  the romcom  space to  entertain his audience  to the hilt, he  says this  time the stakes are different. It is  not something we’ve seen before.

 Finally  it is   Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.  Karan  Johar’s first directorial in six years(not counting the one segment each  in Ghost Stories and  Lust Stories). This time he has assembled a dream star-cast  of Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan, Shabana Azmi, Ranveer Singh and  the  boxoffice darling(s) Alia Bhatt.  But trust me, this one is  not about assembling stars  into a complacent plot. The writing in this  zany Romeo & Juliet is so crisp  and engrossing, the experience  is  likely to be   the visual version of a multi-flavour icrecream cone. Colour, choler and karma collide in this tragic-comic love story . Let the  box office dhamaka  begin  from the house  of Dharma.
