Well done Karan!!
by Sudarsan on Nov 21, 2009 10:48 PM  | Hide replies

Karan these days gives good honest and refreshing answers to interviews. The way he says "I cant make a film with newcomers because I want to work with people who have evolved from mistakes", COME ON how many of them in this world do this? You all say its a rubbish statement. The corporate companies look for guys with experience for jobs. Will you go and say to them "its a rubbish idea"?. Lot of people dont have the guts to say that they dont want to work with newcomers because they need experienced people. This guy has the guts to say it out. It needs to be appreciated. This guy when he directs, he wants to work with experienced people. But as a producer, he is giving chances to new directors. He is not the guy to give breaks and he doesnt need to. There are others out there to do it.

I agree with that 'Rani KANK' thing. However nice Abhishek might be, there is more to a turn-on for a girl than the guy's good guy personality. Girls always need not be turned on by a nice guy.

dude, you think karan makes good movies?? i seriously doubt the intelligence of the public who pay to watch his movies. he still thinks that a 3 hr long movie works in india. let him make a movie at the level of vishal bharadwaj and then i will start appreciating his work.

Biased reviews
by AR Rehman on Nov 21, 2009 07:22 PM  | Hide replies

His movie reviews are so much biased. I believe he must be paying the reviewers. For example the recent movie Qurbaan, the reviews have been excellent, but the review from Public says a different story.....

he forget something.....

KJo says that he doesnt want to work with the newcomers. haaaah......
perhaps he forget that once he was a newcomer too. wouldn't it would had been been nice if big stars would had refused to work with this newcomer. he was able to hold onto only because his father had credibility in the industry or else he would had been kicked out of bollywood.
he's no self-made man....if he considers himself a man even after giving such unmanly statements.....

Wow Refreshing!!

KJo comes across as a completed sorted guy - who is completely aware of his Strengths and Weaknesses. He breaks the stereotype big time...by providing some of the most unexpected, true, rude and refreshing answers.

Come to think of it - he doesn't plays to the gallery by saying something he doesn't really believe in. No newcomers, No small movies, hyper apprehensions (slashing his wrist n all) over bad actors - I mean this is awesome for someone to speak out and admit it so confidently.

And going by the comments below, looks like it ain't a very popular option to be candid and honest. People expect good, heart-pleasing, modest answers. And as KJo himself says, people are too eager to be judgmental. KJo is arrogant, immature, selfish. But chill guys! He is simply being himself sans any pretensions. LET HIM BE!! If small-budget movies are not his cup of tea, why should he even bother to do it?

Just to please some critic? Or Raja Sen? Or just to exhibit his sheer range? Oh cmon! Grow up - it doesn't inspires or appeal to his creativity, neither does it makes commercial sense. So give two hoots to the world…and KJo continues to do what his heart desires.

Finally, Kudos to KJo for constantly pushing the envelope with is productions – Kaal, KANK (also directed by him), Dostana and now Kurbaan. All stellar efforts in trying to push Indian Cinema to newer territories. It takes tremendous amount of confidence and belief to be able to compartmentalize life so beautifully – explore with productions and stay within your safe zone (mind it – just people and set-up and not premise) in your directorial ventures. Kudos KJo! You’re here to Stay!

well, he of course has a right to do what he believes in. But, i don't think he brings more creativity to indian cinema or pushes more to newer territories...

Partly agree with Himanshu. Good to see someone admit his choices without fear of being pilloried by critics.

Me, I more or less despise all the movies he has directed, regret being subjected to them in the company of insistent friends whom I accompanied to the cinema. If he's pushing the envelope - it is simply in selling the same hackneyed NRI melodrama everytime (no small wonder to me). Yet, he has every right to make movies the way he prefers.

Anyway, before blaming him for making shit, one must at least admit that there's a blooming shit-market everywhere!
