They dance, gyrate & shake their booties in an attempt to lure the audiences into watching the film, falsely proclaiming that they are awesome chors. But the truth about their stupidity is fairly visible all through the song.

Written, composed & sung by Kailash Kher, instead of featuring an A – list Bollywood superstar in the video, the song features the incompetent trio of Champak, Genda & Gulab yet again. Fortunately, the song also features Rhea Chakraborty, who plays a reporter, Gayatri Ganguly in the movie, so there is still something to cheer about.

Says Riteish Deshmukh, “Just like the rest of the film, “Hum Hain Bank Chor” is also hilarious because in the song, the 3 idiot chors believe that they’re actually smarter than everybody else. So for a change, it was fun for me to make everyone dance to my tune, because in the rest of the film “Meri Tashreef Lagi Hui Hai!”

Adds composer – lyricist – singer Kailash Kher, “After creating history with iconic songs like “Teri Deewani”, “Saiyaan” & “Allah Ke Banday”, I’m all set to destroy that with “Banday Hai Hum BankChor…” all on Y – Films doing. Jokes apart, this was really special as it showcases a mad, naughty & fun side of me that not many people have been exposed to. So after the soulful sufi comes stupid masti… hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it!”

Self – confessedly India’s STUPIDEST comic thriller, Bank Chor, directed by Bumpy & produced by Ashish Patil, is all set to embarrass its makers when it releases in theaters on 16th Jun, 2017. The trailer of the film is out on YouTube.com / YFilms.

Y – Films is the dynamic, vibrant start – up at the intersection of films, creativity & youth culture that hopes to challenge the norm and detonate boundaries. Giving the youth a creative outlet and voice that will entertain & unite on film and beyond. A studio that promises to deliver kick ass content of the youth, by the youth, for the youth.

But how much freedom are we prepared to give up for the promise of total security?” stated Rise & Shine World Sales which reps Pre – Crime in international markets. Heeder pointed out in a statement that it wasn’t the algorithms we should worry about, but “the social players that can use the growing flood of data algorithmically for their own goals: security, consumption, control, surveillance, forecasts etc. (and do so) without the slightest democratic control of the use of these technologies.” Matthias Heeder & Monika Hielscher travelled to Chicago, London, Paris, Berlin & Munich to investigate on predictive policing techniques from the perspectives of people who used these tools and those who are being tracked down. The doc was produced by Stefan Kloos at Kloos & Co. Medien, lensed by Sebastian Bäumler & edited by Christoph Senn. Kloos & Co. Medien is one of Germany’s top production outfits.

EMPEROR MOTION PICTURE BRINGS BACK RESTORED FILMS

Emperor Motion Picture has picked up sales rights to 2 restored classic films of modern Asian cinema namely Devils On The Doorstep & Ichi The Killer. The Hong Kong -based studio has begun sales on the so -called Cannes version of “Devils,” the black comedy directed by Jiang Wen in 2000. Although Jiang Wen is today celebrated as a cultural icon in China, the film earned him a 7 year directing ban and was also refused a theatrical release in China. The story involves a captured Japanese soldier who is mysteriously billeted on a Chinese village. Jiang Wen’s intention may have been to contradict stereotyped thinking on Chinese passiveness, and knee – jerk assumptions, but his humanistic portrayal of the Japanese prisoner was controversial. Edited versions of the film were given releases in some territories, including Japan in 2002. Those compounded Jiang Wen’s previous fault of having submitted the movie to Cannes – where it won the Grand Prize – without Film Bureau permission. The restored, 162 minute Cannes version, of the film was screened at the Hong Kong festival in 2011, while a shorter version of 140 mins played the HKIFF in 2014.

PK’s Tweets About The North – South Divide

Pawan Kalyan has been raking up the North -South divide in his tweets to attack Central BJP leadership. He further went ahead & pointed fault in the decision of AP CM N Chandrababu Naidu regarding the appointment of AK Singhal as EO of TTD. He raised the same North – South issue here too. In social media, varied reasons for Pawan’s fascination towards this North – South divide are being floated but 3 reasons are funny. Here are they…..1. He married his long – time lover & actress Renu Desai in 2009 but eventually divorced her due to incompatible issues. Many are wondering whether his anger against North India /Indians stems from his sour relationship with Renu Desai who happens to be a North Indian. 2. Pawan Kalyan thought of cracking the Hindi – belt with Sardaar Gabbar Singh. He gave exclusive interviews to Bollywood journalists before the release. His producers released the movie in massive manner in North India. But the movie bombed miserably in Hindi too. There were no takers for Katamarayudu in North India. Where as, Prabhas is now showing his strength in Hindi belt. Probably this could be another reason why he is frustrated with North Indians. 3. Before 2014 general elections, Pawan Kalyan was Narendra Modi’s favorite friend. He played key role in NDA’s win in Andhra Pradesh. But post – polls, Pawan’s relations with PM Modi went downwards. Pawan must have been disappointed with Modi’s ill treatment towards him and has started raising his anger against North Indians. This is one comment that is doing the rounds in social media.

Dull Promotion For Sharwanand’s Movie

Sharwanand has got his biggest hit to date with Shatamanam Bhavati early this year.

Ram Charan To Spend 125 Cr

This is the time of making visual spectacles with grandeur sets, international – standard visuals & effects. If a director takes up a period historical subject, he or she should not compromise on the budget. Ordinary historical dramas are passe after Baahubali 2 has raised the bar high for Indian movies. Even Bollywood director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has decided to increase the budget of his period drama Padmavathi from Rs 160 crore to Rs 200 crore in order to match up to the high standards set by S. S. Rajamouli in production design. Taking inspiration from this, producer Ram Charan has decided to up the ante for his next production Uyyalavada Narasimha Reddy that stars his father Chiranjeevi. Ram Charan along with his father watched S. S. Rajamouli’s epic drama at Prasad’s Imax (Large screen) on Tues night. After this, they have taken the decision to spend more money on sets & graphics of Uyyalavada Narasimha Reddy. Only a lavish movie can survive at the Box -Office turnstiles now. The film is to be directed by Surender Reddy who until now has not made period dramas or historical movies. Ram Charan & Surender Reddy were planning to make the movie with a good budget of Rs 80 Cr but now Charan is willing to spend more than Rs 125 Cr on this to make it a spectacle.
