This oneís for the Salman Khan fans. Shaadi Karke Phas Gaya Yaar (Shemaroo; DVD Rs 299), says Salman in this film. Marriage between an upper middleclass boy Salman Khan and a high-flying model has its effect. That life is a mix of comedy and tragedy is quite evident here.
Shilpa discovers a wide cultural difference between her lifestyle and Salmanís family and things turn sour. Caught between the two ó family and wife ó how Salman handles the situation is something to be seen.
This film was made in the year 2000 and awaited release till 2006. The director, K.S. Adhiyaman, who had done his debut film Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam, also with Salman, had meanwhile gone South and remade the film in Tamil called Priyasakhi, starring Madhavan and Sadaa which was a big success. The film had suffered a setback due to the delay in release, but with the Tamil film doing well, itís worth seeing what Salman-Shilpa have in store in this film.
Itís Soumitra Chatterjee and Aparna Sen in director Swadesh Sarkarís Jeeban Saikate (Channel B; VCD Rs 149) yet another film on the husband-wife relationship. Things for some bizzare reason, multiplied by ego, took the wrong turn and in spite of the two loving each other gradually alienated. When they realised that these misunderstandings were for nothing they had both lost their prime. The film has some beautiful music by Sudhin Dasgupta.
While still on marriage and relationship hereís another very old example of what marriage was all about in the past. Bodhu (Channel B; VCD Rs149), Sabitri Chatterjee, under a very unusual circumstance becomes the daughter-in-law of Chhabi Biswas. She goes through a lot to get accepted there. But to get the respect of a wife and win her husbandís (Vasant Chowdhury) love she also starts studying. Directed by Bhupen Ray, this film also stars Biswajit, Sandhya Roy, Bikash Ray and Anubha Gupta.
