Ians August 01, 2012

There will be a treat for cinegoers this weekend. From romantic film Yeh Jo Mohabbat Hai to erotic thriller in Jism 2, from comedy From Sydney With Love to 3D animated film Krishna Aur Kans - all are set to come out Friday.

A dramatic love story, Yeh Jo..., is about two young people and how the enmity between their respective Rajput families creats obstacle in their lives.

Featuring newcomers Aditya Samanta and Nazia Hussain, the music of the film, composed by Anu Malik, too boasts of freshness.

Directed by Shree Narayan Singh, the film marks the new innings for Shakti Samanta's banner Aradhana Films, known for romantic dramas like Amar Prem, Kati Patang and Aradhana.

Made with a modern approach, the Yeh Jo Mohabbat Hai cast also includes veteran actors like Mohnish Behl, Rati Agnihotri and Farida Jalal.

Then there is From Sydney With Love, directed by Prateek Chakravorty, grandson of Pramod Chakravorty.

Starring fresh faces, including Sharad Malhotra, Bidita Bag, Evelyn Sharma and Reshmi Ghosh, From Sydney..., made under the banner Pramod Films, is a family comedy.

In the film, Meghaa Banerjee (Bidita) flies to Sdyney after getting a scholarship. She meets Rohit Khurana (Sharad) there and they gel well right from the start.

What follows is a fun, quirky, emotional and furiously endearing love story.

After family comedy and romantic drama, there is filmmaker Pooja Bhatt's bold and much talked about Jism 2.

A sequel to 2003 film Jism, it marks the debut of Indo-Canadian pornographic actress Sunny Leone in Bollywood. Passed with an A-certificate by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), it also features Randeep Hooda and Arunoday Singh.

Co-produced by Pooja and Dino Morea, the film is about a porn star (Sunny), who is hired by an intelligence officer (Arunoday) to become a 'honey-trap' for a dreaded assassin (Randeep).

Pooja, 40, said that Jism 2 will be 'the most sensual film of our times' and 'it is an adult film that targets mature audiences'.

The young audience can watch out for Krishna Aur Kans, the 3D animated film, which is releasing in four different languages - Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and English.

Based on the timeless tale of Lord Krishna, it has a voice cast of actors Om Puri as Kans, Juhi Chawla as Mother Yashoda and Prachi Save as Krishna.

Other voiceover are by Manoj Bajpayee as Nand, Sachin Pilgaonkar as Vasudev, Supriya Pilgaonkar as Devaki, AK Hangal as King Ugrasen and Anupam Kher as Gargacharya.

Made under the banner of Reliance Animation, a subsidiary of Reliance Entertainment, the movie will release in over 350 screens across the country.

Directed by Vikram Veturi and written by Kamlesh Pandey, the animation film went on floors after four years of research.

It took the makers another five years to create the magnum opus. As many as 1,200 people have been working on the project.

@someone: If Hollywood produces movies based on Christian faith no one calls them communal Christians or non secular Americans!!If Muslim countries like Iran,Turkey or pak produce movies based on muslim faith[virtually 95% are] they are not called communal Muslims!!Whats wrong in India producing movies on our great and noble Hindu mythologies which happened more than 20000 years ago and how can they be communal or non-secular!!84% Hindu majority of India are proud of our idealistic goals and attitudes which see us having Muslim super stars in Bollywood,Muslim Presidents,Vice Presidents,scores of Muslim Chief Ministers of states,innumerable Muslim cabinet ministers in both Central and state govts,Muslim Richest man of the world - azim premji,Muslim superstars of Cricket,Big Muslim industrialists and also of Christian,Parsi etc faiths!!
