Shahrukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai starrer Devdas has been put into the top 10 list of the best movies of the millennium. It is the biggest distinction for Sanjay Leela Bhansali who made this movie almost a decade back. The movie got its place among the Time Magazine’s list of 10 best movies of the millennium. Famed film critic Richard Corliss put the movie into the list. It got its place at the eighth place on the list. The film shares the juncture with the flicks such as Avatar, Moulin Rouge, The Lord of the Rings, Wall E and The Hurt Locker.
Corliss is filled with much praise for the movie and says that the film carries brilliant plot, superb dancing, heavy emotions and a lot to attract the moviegoers.
Devdas marks its 10th anniversary and the maker of the movie Sanjay Leela Bhansali wants to make this film in 3D format now. The movie had received superb rave reviews from the critics and the audiences had simply loved the flick. It looted the hearts of the people in India and across the borders. The entire world, wherever the Bollywood presence existed, got mesmerized with the charms of the movie that also carries the spongy melodious music to enjoy with. The dancing skills of Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai got supremely applauded. Still the people would love to watch it time and again. Shah Rukh’s drunken acting is mesmerizing and Madhuri’s dancing is classy and Aishwarya’s love-filled emotions are spellbinding.
Ram Gopal Verma’s latest release Department, which saw the day of light on this Friday, appeared the lowest opener at the box office of 2012. The film as per the reports made Rs. 2.5 crores (nett) on the opening day. The collections on the opening day for Ramu’s Department were much less that it got its place as the lowest box office opener of 2012. Previously this title was with Priyadarshan’s Ajay Devgan and Anil Kapoor starrer ‘Tezz’. Now they are happy that Ram Gopal Verma’s much hyped film ‘Department’ broke its record.
Ramu made the biggest hype for the film to make it happening among the crowds. He used all the right and available sources for the promotional activities of the film such as he used the hot item number fashion in the movie, he used the different style of song ‘Sanjay Dutt’s tribute to Big B with Thodi Si Jo Pe Li Hai’, and then so many other things. But at last all his efforts went in vain and he had to face the disappointment at the box office. This shows that the movies do not run with the star power but with the content. Department carries the big starcast like Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjay Dutt but since its content was not strong, the film faced the failure at the box office. The bad reviews from the critics further are decreasing the worth of the movie because the movie buffs are now not ready to spend the money on the product which is not interesting no matter if it has Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjay Dutt.
