Did Bollywood jump the gun?

John Abraham had been on the dormant mode for a while. But his latest release Force appears destined to strike gold, if not platinum, at the box-office. Salman Khan has given a series of huge hits: Wanted, Dabanng, Ready and Bodyguard. Ajay Devgn decided to resurrect his action-packed avatar for Singham, making coins clink at the cash counters nationwide.

There is a lesson here. And it has nothing to do with the obvious ones: for instance, that Bollywood looks Hollywood-ward. It does, so much so that Hollywood-inspired Bollywood films, the fact of a Hitch getting moulded into a Partner, constitutes a significant section of our ancient, medieval and modern cinematic history. The lesson is not even the fact that filmmakers in the Hindi film industry are looking towards the South for ideas, and recasting them into films that are rocking the box office.

Instead, what we have learned is this. Despite loud proclamations that filmmakers face the challenge of catering to a ‘mature’ audience that expects products with a difference, masala films retain their space in the list of viewers’ demands. Today’s film lover might gravitate towards the cinema hall to watch 3 Idiots, but he needs to have his dose of action, emotion, drama and melodrama. If the so-called ‘different’ films are relatable because of the reality of enhanced exposure, masala movies evoke a sense of identification with the Bollywood he has grown up with.

It won’t be unfair to affirm that not taking the spice-laden, action-packed, route more often was a strategic error made by the industry on the whole. Although films with predictable plots and structure – the Akshay Kumar comedies, for instance, till they started falling flat – continued to get made, returning to the past on a far more frequent basis had stopped being a collective marketing decision. Many filmmakers seemed to have made up their minds about what the viewers wanted. Such makers pushed the genre of action-laden masala thrillers into unwanted retirement, thinking that such films had outlived their utility.

The success of such hardcore potboilers proves how wrong they were. For, remakes, no remakes, the average Bollywood watcher has grown up on a diet of songs, dances, fights and wafer-thin stories. In their scheme of things, the hero is the one who wins and can do no wrong. In fact, even if he is wrong, some obscure and unrealistic factor eclipses his weaknesses and follies to ensure his eventual triumph. The heroine is a marionette with nothing much to do except look pretty all through. The villain is that guy who gets mauled. Other characters are glorified extras.

In today’s times, multiplex movies – most of them nowhere near as well-made as they are made out to be – cater to the palate of the relatively discerning viewer. Made with small budgets and lesser known actors, such films can make a decent packet if they are good or plain lucky. But when the maker looks at big budget films, he can take two routes. If he has a strong enough story that, fortunately, has a mass base, he can go all out and make the film.

The other route is to go for the tried and tested approach. Several recent successes have shown that the viewers are willing to lap up stereotypes. Because, somewhere within the recesses of his mind, the past is as alive and kicking as it ought to be.

Force Movie Review

September 30, 2011 09:27:40 PM IST
By Martin D’Souza, Glamsham Editorial

This one is not for the faint-hearted. It leaves a bloody trail throughout and has an ending unlike the typical Bollywood flick. There’s Force and more force. Yes, it’s very forceful. It begins with John Abraham forcefully pumping to pulp a few baddies when a consignment deal goes wrong. He tries in vain to get rid of his ‘stuff’ but finds no dealer. It later turns out that he is a Narcotics officer in search of drug peddlers and suppliers.

John is ACP Yashvardhan. And he is not alone. He has in his team four crack officers. They stumble on an informer who helps them annihilate the big boys as well as clean the city of any ‘substance’. However, there’s a new ‘Boss’ on the scene and he is making merry with no competition in sight and demand for drugs at an all-time high. So who is this guy? Let’s welcome Vishnu, played by newcomer Vidyut Jamwal. You could safely say terror has a new name in Bollywood.

His performance leaves you zapped. Never has a villain been portrayed so fearless, so evil and so high on raw exuberance. This guy is deadly. He leaves a chill down your spine with his flawless performance as someone out to wipe the Narcotics team. Gabbar, you’ve got competition brother!

The narration is simple and action slick as director Nishikant Kamat gets the basics right. Throughout, he keeps the flow going, only once interjecting it with a song when the action moves to fifth gear. Otherwise he has a grip on the film throughout.

Once Yash and his team wipe out the drug dealers, and Vishnu enters the scene, the narcotics division is perplexed. However, they soon catch up with the new dealer and gun down Anna (Mukesh Rishi), Vishnu’s elder brother in a mall. To avenge his brother’s death, Vishnu engages in a blood bath, wiping out everything and everyone in his trail.

Just when you thought the film belonged to John Abraham, in walks Vidyut to wipe out all competition, literally. He has you gripped with his confident body language and fearless portrayal of a man on a mission.

Genelia D’Souza (Maya) as the chirpy girl, who falls in love with Yash, too, pitches in with a fine performance. Mohnish Bahl, Sandhya Mridul and the two officers who form the crack team also pull in their weight.

FORCE is handled well. It has a good storyline, some breathtaking action, cosy moments and a grand finale.

If you like to feel the rush of adrenaline, FORCE is for you.

"Love Breakups Zindagi is like Pacman" – Cyrus Sahukar

“Love Breakups Zindagi is like Pacman” – Cyrus Sahukar 

By Devansh Patel, September 30, 2011 – 13:22 IST

Cyrus Sahukar

Of course, first impression can be deceptive. In Cyrus Sahukar’s case, so could second, third and fourth. Though he’d often come across as a waster

dope-fiend (he still doesn’t have dark circles. Wonder what he’s sniffing?) who had lucked out, whose casual sarcasm and proficiency with appalling language

had received an airing at just the right time to catch the public imagination, his rise was far more complex than that, involving a decade or more I’m

guessing, of hard work and a deep belief in his own abilities that was forged and encouraged by several significant others. Once going nowhere, he was

suddenly everywhere and today on to the big screen where more bucks are made on silly subjects (movies). But first things first! Cyrus is straight. Yes, and

there’s nothing such as ‘Stand Up comedians are gays’. I don’t even know where this came from. But the more Cyrus stands on your face or sits in front of

you, he’s surely putting that smile on your face again (Heath Ledger must be cursing him for what I know from up in the heaven). I’m assuming, unable to

continue falling back on his vast stock of jokes about girls, women, aunties with big t***, dope, beer and sex, he was forced to test himself as an actor

under the brightest spotlight. Given the man’s resourcefulness thus far, he went for it. Thus the result – Rang De Basanti, Delhi 6, Aisha and now

Love Breakups Zindagi. At well over six feet tall, it would be hard to miss Cyrus in a crowd. The good news is, he’s not trying to blend into the

crowd anyway. After all, he is that one actor who admits to having normal parents. UK’s Harrow Observer columnist meets a social philosopher aka an actor in

Bollywood named Cyrus Sahukar, who so consistently tells so many ugly and hilarious truths about the way we Indians live or pretend to live. Did I say

‘Indians’? Oops! Coz I meant ‘Indian actors’.

“I haven’t done anything that’s comic so far in my films”
Bro, I haven’t done

anything called ‘comedy’ in any of my movies. I’m confused now. I don’t even know whether I am a good actor as my career in movies has only begun three years

ago. Anyone who does television will tell you that the films are a completely different medium. I remember the day before I went to the Delhi 6 shoot,

I was told that working in a film like this is like working in forty films because I was getting to work with Om Puri, Waheeda Rahman, Abhishek Bachchan,

Rishi Kapoor and Pawan Malhotra. I never got off the sets. I didn’t shoot for twelve days but I was on set every day. That’s a real ‘hard on’ for me.

Cyrus Sahukar “Bizarrely, I’ve just come to realise that I’ve only done films in Delhi. I need to move out of Delhi now”

I’ve come from a school where I’ve learnt everything in an organic

way. Even in films, I do it to a certain extent. I constantly pick up things to add dignity to my characters. Bizarrely, I’ve just come to realise that I’ve

only done films in Delhi. I need to come out of Delhi – Rang De Basanti, Delhi 6, Aisha and now Love Breakups Zindagi (laughs). I’ve not got

one phone call from the Delhi Tourism saying, ‘Come Cyrus, at least have a Mango duet ice-cream’.

“I play Govind in LBZ but I like that he commits mistakes”
All characters I’ve played so

far in films are on the periphery. So Suresh was a sleazy photographer in Delhi 6 who I completely understand. And if you’ve got Suresh as Suresh

Menon, let me tell you that he too is a sleazy photographer (laughs). In fact, he did my first photo shoot (laughs). Randhir Gambhir is that one character I

love because finally I played a guy who had money. In Love Breakups Zindagi, I play Govind who I think is one character that’s braver than all the

others I’ve played. He represents a lot of us. Govind is a guy who has dedicated his life to living his father’s dream. He got married at a young age and it

didn’t work out. His second marriage didn’t work out too. He lives alone now and is in a corporate job after leaving his father’s empire. But the good thing

about Govind is that he is committing a lot of mistakes. In LBZ, I’m not smiling about anything because I’m tired and that might put a smile on your face,

who knows.

“There is a difference between being a comedian and being a clown”
Vir Das and Cyrus Broacha are

comedians. There is a difference between being a comedian and being a clown. There’s a Boman Irani who’ll do a funny movie, there’s a Robin Williams who’ll

do an insanely funny movie but he’ll also do a Good Will Hunting. The clown is the guy who slips on a banana peel and falls and everyone laughs. The

comedian is the one who told him to do so. The comedians are Charlie Chaplin, Jerry Lewis, Rowan Atkinson, etc who moved beyond, I think, in just getting

people to laugh.

“I am more interested in comedy that’s ‘mockumentary’ style which is basically not so animated all the time”

I don’t have a problem with any genre, especially comedy. I don’t mind

a Golmaal but have variety. It’s the business of comedy that talks. Comedians are also the people who write their own scripts, who do live events and

wear their own suits. I am willing to go any lengths to do comedy. Jim Carrey is a good example. He was so physical in what he did. But he is also very

smart. When Jim reached his peak he didn’t do movies that subjected him only to be a caricature. He did Eternal Sunshine Of A Spotless Mind, The Truman

Show, The Number 23, etc. I am more interested in comedy that’s ‘mockumentary’ style which is basically not so animated all the time.

Cyrus Sahukar “I find normal people funny”

I always find normal people funny. Like what you did before we sat down to do this interview. You came out of the room and were panicked and were having a

shocked expression for not finding your bag. In a minute you are asking amazing questions. You may not find this funny but I do. I don’t want to make people

laugh. I want the character to go through his journey and empathy and fun with that journey makes you laugh.

“Dia’s also taught me how to hug people because she thinks that I hug people as if they’ve got a rash”

Dia Mirza is hilarious. Dia is actually the least grumpy person I’ve

met in my life. She’s just not grumpy. For me it’s too disturbing to have someone who’s not grumpy. So I constantly try and get her into a grumpy mood.

Everyone in the morning is quiet but Dia is filled with the boundless amount of energy. Somehow I feel that I never give out the right reaction. Dia too

mentioned it to me. Dia’s also taught me how to hug people because she thinks that I hug people as if they’ve got a rash (laughs). I don’t like hugging

people but she’s taught me. She’s buoyant.

“Satyadeep Mishra is always in some weird yoga or a page 40 Kamasutra position”

Satyadeep Mishra is hilarious. While talking to you, if you are talking about anything, he starts bloody stretching yaar. He’s in this yoga stuff man! He

starts lifting his leg. By the time he has sort of stuck his leg around his neck and looks like some ball or doing page 40 from a Kamasutra, which is very

disturbing, when you are having a serious conversation about life and love. He is a very fine actor. Zayed, Satyadeep and I’ve spent a lot of time together.

“I haven’t met a more Parsi uncle than Zayed Khan”
Zayed keeps

telling me that I am like this old classic Parsi uncle. But honestly, I haven’t met a more Parsi uncle than him. He too is hilarious. Zayed thinks in

visuals. If you tell him that Mrs. Shilpa looks like Robin Williams, the fun lies in Zayed not knowing that Mrs. Shilpa has actually walked in. So he is

making this face signifying that it’s rude. But if he sees Mrs. Shilpa, he’ll laugh out loud and that happens four minutes after. He is overseeing the

visuals. He is the biggest revelation for me as a human being in the film. He has a part to him which is so sharing as a person that I was blown away. It’s

nice to work with people like Zayed.

Cyrus Sahukar“Sahil Sangha is so cool that I lost my cool”
Sahil Sangha is

the most focused person on set I’ve met. He knows everything about the film, inside out. In the middle of the film you can ask him anything. But the sad part

is that he never loses cool. So to irritate him I used to ask him random shit. Even though the shot is mid frame, I would ask him what shoes to wear so that

I get in my character. But he is so cool that I lost my cool. I can’t break Sahil Sangha. You call him at 3am and he has still got the same voice. Even if

you give the worst take ever, he will still say ‘Let’s do it again’ in the most humble of manners.

Love Breakups Zindagi is like Pacman”
Love Breakups Zindagi is almost like a large waiting room. It’s a nice film. It’s like somebody is getting out of love, somebody is waiting for a

better break in life, somebody is saying, ‘Naukri acchi ho jaaye toh meri Life ho jaaye’, etc. Everybody is waiting for those points in life where they can

move left right up and down and make decisions. It’s more like Pacman as you say, yes (laughs). It’s a bizarre analogy.

Review: Chargesheet

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Review: Chargesheet
Sep

Chargesheet is a whodunit murder mystery from the renowned Navketan banner. Veteran actors on screen with legendary actor Dev Anand leading the list, naturally that is reason enough for anyone to go and watch the movie.

Set in the backdrop of the Bollywood-underworld nexus, Sultanbhai aka Naseeruddin Shah, an underworld don based in Dubai, loves his moll, a young babe, to distraction and to fulfil her desire to enter Bollywood, he commissions a film to be made just to launch her.

The team assembles in picturesque Mahabaleshwar. A well known director Mahesh (Jackie Shroff) and a scriptwriter (Milind Gunaji) are virtually on his payrolls and have to comply with his request of taking his beloved Maria as the heroine. Suraj, the current heartthrob, too has to agree.

Maria’s entry spells an unceremonious exit for Mini Singh, the erstwhile reigning heroine (Divya Dutta). Annoyed with this ouster, she threatens to expose Mahesh and Suraj, who have obviously had good times with her. Both of them have ugly fights with her and leave. They realise she has to be eliminated and a plot to kill her is hatched.

Sultanbhai instructs his trusted lieutenant, the one-eyed KK to give supari to a local guy, Tony. Gambhir Singh, a retired cop, enters to meet Mini Singh, his former daughter-in-law Reema, who bid goodbye to her little daughter and husband for the arc-lights.

A heated argument ensues. He too threatens to kill her. Mini Singh is suddenly shot. The needle of suspicion points to all three.

Gambhir Singh is outraged as his integrity is questioned by a corrupt police inspector Dhamle (Yashpal Sharma) who has been bought over by the don. Dhamle manipulates the chargesheet and thus lets the filmi duo go scot free. Gambhir Singh appeals to the home minister to let him investigate the case in seven days else he is ready to be hanged in public.

The investigation drags and has Dev Saab in the forefront of course. Expectedly so, he solves the murder mystery and emerges as the real hero of the film. In any case, he is the only one who still retains his charm and style.

Divya Dutta does Mini Singh to perfection. The younger breed of new actors is sincere but leaves no impact. Cham Cham (Devshi Khanduri) has shades of Zeenat Aman of Dev Saab’s Ishq Ishq Ishq with a guitar, short skirt etc. Yashpal Sharma as Dhamle is his usual self, a la GangaaJal kind of performance.

The treatment has old world sensibilities. The plot, though not predictable, is neither gripping nor is the music hummable. But unlike some of the movies made today, Chargesheet story and screenplay are good. With some literally titillating scenes liberally thrown in, this movie would definitely appeal to the mass front benchers. A must see if you have to.

Autos – the preferred Bollywood vehicle

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Autos – the preferred Bollywood vehicle
Sep

While commuters in Mumbai are held to ransom by frequent auto strikes, many Bollywood stars are shunning their luxury wheels to hop into the humble auto. They say it is a practical ride on Mumbai’s busy streets.

Filmmakers Imtiaz Ali and Rohit Jugraj prefer the auto to their four-wheel rides. Imtiaz, who is directing Ranbir Kapoor in Rockstar, has also introduced him to auto rides. The two are sometimes seen zipping around in three-wheelers.

Unnoticed
Though stars can hardly board an auto unnoticed, it doesn’t stop them from hopping into one in a rush. Recently, Katrina Kaif who had to reach the airport in time simply hopped into an auto rickshaw. The autowallah swooned on seeing his superstar passenger.

“I had an early morning flight to catch. And my driver did not show up on time. So I flagged down an auto and jumped in. My staff arrived later. What’s the big deal?” Katrina says she enjoyed the ride and wouldn’t mind doing it again,” says Katrina of her ride.

Fried
Since most stars live and commute extensively in the city’s Western suburbs, autos are a convenient ride. Says Bheja Fry actor Vinay Pathak, “I use the rickshaw very often. I travelled by auto rickshaw very recently, just the other night. I needed to reach my movie theatre fast and I did not feel like driving.”

People
Filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia likes to commute by auto rickshaw too. “I love commuting by autos. I get to observe people from close quarters and also get time to think,” he says

Actor Shazahn Padamsee says, “I used to travel by autos for the longest time. When my driver doesn’t show up I still use the auto to commute in Bandra.”

Actor Sonu Sood thinks Mumbai life would be paralysed without autos.

“The other day, I went to the airport in an auto when my driver didn’t show up on time. I am no stranger to auto rickshaws,” he said.

Promotions
Apart from a commuting, stars and filmmakers are using the humble auto to promote their films as well.

Recently, producer Sunil Bohra flew down to his hometown of Jodhpur and hired a fleet of autorickshaws to promote his new film, Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster.

“When you get on a three-wheeler there is an immediate connection with the masses. I found local people responded immediately to my marketing on autos,” says Bohra.

Mahie Gill who was seen commuting in an auto rickshaw in her most recent release Not A Love Story, is no stranger to the three-wheeler. “In fact I always used to travel by auto, until I bought my car some three years ago. I still grab an auto sometimes when there’s a lot of traffic and I need to reach my workplace on time. I find it convenient and a liberating means of transport. And it somehow keeps one rooted to reality,” she says

Easy
Filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh still prefers the auto to his car.

“In fact, he went to his office in an auto, when this writer interviewed him. Udaan‘s young protagonist, Rajat Bharmecha who is from Delhi says, “I do travel by autos. In fact so many people use autos. They get handicapped when there’s a strike like the ones we have seen recently. I personally love speeding in autos late at night. So much more fun than the car.”

Nostalgia
Theatre and film actor Lilette Dubey gets nostalgic about the three-wheeler.

Hai, woh bhi ek zamana tha in Delhi in college, haggling with the autorickshaw-wallah (That was the time, haggling with the autorickshaw drivers in Delhi during college). Those days the meter for some mysterious reason never worked! I did get a chance to use an auto recently, when my flight got cancelled and I had to rush from one terminal to another. Would you believe it, the driver charged me a 100 bucks. Some things never change!”

Tantrums
Actor Nikhil Diwedi travels by autorickshaw. “But I see a huge difference in the attitude of the auto drivers in the last decade. Earlier they were more professional and disciplined. Recently, I hopped into an auto when I could not locate my car in a car park, lost my bearings somehow. I don’t support their strike though.”

Actors sometimes have a tough time dealing with temperamental drivers and paucity of parking space.

Says actor Aditi Rao (of Delhi 6 and Yeh Saali Zindagi fame), “Considering the scarcity of parking space in the city and hardly any pavements to walk on, it is more convenient taking an auto, especially in Bandra where my car gets towed quite frequently. I had to travel by auto very recently.”

Strike
Minissha Lamba feels the auto strike is justified to a point.

“Their livelihood is at stake. But at the same time the people are being inconvenienced as their daily mode of transport to work is disrupted.”

Filmmaker Onir says, “I still travel by auto. I don’t think they fudge meters that much. For a fare of Rs 100 they might maximum cheat Rs 10 whereas cops take bribes in hundreds from autorickshaw-wallahs.”

Singer Sunidhi Chauhan took an auto recently to a recording. “It was fun, as usual,” she signs off.

Ready for a morcha
The Mumbai Autorickshaw Union along with other unions has called for a morcha on Monday October 3, to press for certain demands. Their demands are titled rather combatively: Hamein Jeene Do or Let us Live.

Some of those demands are:
There should be a rise in fares so as to facilitate rickshaw drivers to earn at least Rs 25,000 a month.
Autorickshaws should be allowed to ply within the city.
Given the rise in price of spare parts and other accessories of auto rickshaws, rickshaws should be allowed to raise their fares every January.

Salman to work in Dookudu remake?
Zeenews Bureau

Mumbai: When Diwali is around the corner it’s obvious to have Bollywood`s big projects waiting to hit the theatres. But one film from the South industry is already creating a buzz in India and abroad. Actor Mahesh Babu`s Telugu film ‘Dookudu’ has already been declared as a smash hit in its first week itself.

Apparently looking at its success, the Salman Khan camp is already eyeing the idea of its remake in Hindi soon.

‘Dookudu’ has minted a whooping Rs. 30 crore so far. It has banked a tremendous sum of 82,000 dollars at a multiplex in Virginia, the only film to surpass its collections is Brad Pitt’s ‘Moneyball’.

As reported by a daily, Kona Venkat, who worked on ‘Ready’ in Telugu and Hindi, and is also associated with Anees Bazmee`s ‘No Entry’ sequel and Sohail Khan`s ‘Sher Khan’, confirms the same. “Sreenu, who directed ‘Ready’ in Telugu, is keen to remake Dookudu in Hindi with Salmanbhai.

In fact, the lead character`s heroism suits Salman bhai perfectly. We won`t need to make alterations for the Hindi version,” he said.

He added that their entire team was aware that the ‘Dabangg’ star would do the remake.

“Even Mahesh Babu said that Salman bhai would be the best actor for the Hindi version,” he further revealed.

Though the Telugu version of ‘Dookudu’ cost filmmakers a total of 35 crores to make, the estimated budget for the hindi version of the film with the ‘Bodyguard’ star has been pegged at 60 crores.

However the problem is that the lead protagonist in the Telugu film is a cop and Salman is not keen on another cop role at the moment.

“Salman bhai isn`t keen on another policeman role before the Dabangg sequel,” explained Venkat.

He said he is waiting for the actor, currently in Mumbai, to take a call after watching ‘Dookudu’. He further states that if the producer and director decide to wait till ‘Dabangg 2’ is ready, then there should be no reason for Salman to decline the movie.

Ever since Mahesh Babu`s film released, Bollywood producers and actors are vying for the remake rights, which is believed to be over Rs 3 crore. But till Salman makes up his mind, everything on the remake has been put on hold.

Lowe says Bollywood market lured him to Breakaway

TORONTO — Rob Lowe has been a pin-up boy, a movie idol, a TV star and — most recently — a bestselling author.

Now, he’s intent on becoming a movie mogul.

The veteran actor says his new role as part owner of the vast Miramax film library has him scouting for money-making productions that could involve partnering with Canadian and foreign filmmakers.

Lowe says it’s a big reason he appears in the Indo-Canadian hockey film, Breakaway, an amalgam of Bollywood and sports movie tropes that hits theatres around the world this weekend.

“I was really interested in the theme of assimilation and what it means to belong and in terms of fathers and sons, what it means to break that bond and go your own way,” Lowe said of the coming-of-age tale when it debuted at the recent Toronto International Film Festival.

“And as a businessman, as I’ve started to transition into that area, I was really interested in the Bollywood business and I thought this would be a good way to learn.”

The Toronto-shot Breakaway treads familiar Canuck ground by revolving around an underdog hockey phenom. The twist here is that the on-ice star is an Indo-Canadian kid struggling to assert his independence from overbearing immigrant parents.

Rajveer Singh, played by newcomer Vinay Virmani, is more interested in hanging out at the community rink than working at his uncle’s trucking company. When the local amateur team rejects him despite a stellar on-ice performance, Rajveer forms his own team with his South Asian pals and they make a bid for the championships.

Lowe plays the rink manager and the team’s coach, but his character also happens to be an ex-NHLer with a few hard-won lessons up his sleeve. He also has a lovely sister, who inspires colourful Bollywood fantasies in the lovestruck Rajveer.

“I was interested in seeing what a hybrid would look like and that’s what this movie really is,” Lowe said.

The film’s global aspirations are bolstered by cameos from Indian stars Akshay Kumar (who also executive produced the film) and Anupam Kher (Bend It Like Beckham), and rap stars Drake and Ludacris. Meanwhile, Canadian comic superstar Russell Peters turns up as a wisecracking Wall Street hotshot poised to marry into the Singh family.

Virmani said he was awestruck the first time he met Lowe on set, noting that the Hollywood star once played a hockey prospect much like Rajveer in 1986’s Youngblood.

“I shot about six hours of hockey in the afternoon, (and then) I was going to do this big dramatic scene with Rob,” recalled Virmani, who also co-wrote the script.

“I was a little bit nervous and I saw him skating out on the ice. And I said, ‘Hi Mr. Lowe, I’m Vinay Virmani, I’m going to play Rajveer Singh.’ And he just gave me a big hug right away and he said: ‘Ah, you know, this is a homecoming for me man, because 20 years ago I did Youngblood here and you’re just where I was. And that’s what I love about Canada, that a brown kid like you can be the next Youngblood!’ “

Known as Speedy Singhs outside of Canada, Breakaway hit 600 theatres in India on Sept. 23, but suffered a dismal opening according to Boxofficereport.net.

It’s set to screen in the U.K., Middle East, Australia, Fiji, the Far East, Africa and Canada on Friday.

Lowe said his shift to the business side of the industry began about a year and a half ago when he partnered with a group of financiers behind Filmyard Holdings. They bought Miramax as their first investment and Lowe said the first priority is to recapitalize their debt and pay off initial investors.

“We have been in the process of trying to figure out what the new Miramax would look like and we’re deep in the thick of it. Eventually we will make movies at some point . . . but this first year has been (about) building infrastructure and monetizing our library,” said Lowe, referring to widespread reports the company is seeking digital deals.

“Obviously the next phase of that will be making movies and what does that look like for us and how do we do it? There’s a lot of different ways we’re thinking about doing it.”

CEO Mike Lang was among the executives at the Toronto film fest hunting for revenue opportunities for Miramax’s 700-plus titles, which include Pulp Fiction, the Kill Bill series and the Spy Kids franchise, said Lowe.

The film star didn’t rule out teaming up with Canadian filmmakers down the line to collaborate on big-screen ventures.

“We’re actively looking for partnerships right now with some of our project libraries that we inherited, actual scripts,” said Lowe.

“I think it’s $500 million worth of undeveloped material that we inherited, that (Miramax founders) Bob and Harvey (Weinstein) developed and they have great taste. So one of the things we’re doing is looking for creative partners to maybe move forward with those.”

Lowe said his hectic work schedule required him to commute throughout the Breakaway shoot between Toronto and L.A., where he plays peppy city manager Chris Traeger on NBC’s Parks and Recreation.
