G Caffe wishes all its readers, listeners, followers and contributors a Merry Christmas. Laugh and be merry. This week Anurag Kashyap, Shawn Levy and K.S. Ravikumar bring us ‘Ugly’, ‘Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb’ and ‘Lingaa’.
NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB: The third and last in the series is out this Friday. Director Shawn Levy and Ben Stiller (the main lead) have been associated with the series of ‘Night At The Museum’, since 2006 when the first part – Night At The Museum – was released; the second part being ‘Night At The Museum: Battle Of The Smithsonian’ (2009).
The latest ‘Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb’ features Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Dan Stevens, Ben Kingsley (of Gandhi fame), Mickey Rooney and Robin Williams. Before this part could be completed, Mickey Rooney and Robin Williams died and so the movie’s release got a bit held up.
The story begins from where they left it in part 2, the security guard Larry Daley secretly creeps in the Smithsonian Institution to rescue his friends Jedediah and Octavius, who are trapped in the museum by mistake.
The ‘Night At The Museum : Secret Of The Tomb’ is also the last Hollywood movie to be released in 2014.
UGLY: Directed by Anurag Kashyap, it deals with darkness of soul. A little girl goes missing from a car parked in the middle of a busy market. Clueless parents, who are now divorced, run from pillar to post to rescue their daughter who seems to be kidnapped. The mother is now remarried to a police officer who offers to help. The ugly truth is spilled out which does not spare the parents as well. The film features Ronit Roy, Rahul Bhatt, Surveen Chawla, Tejaswini Kolhapure and Vineet Singh.
LINGAA: A Tamil drama film (dubbed in Hindi), directed by K.S. Ravikumar features Rajnikanth, Jagapati Babu, Sonakshi Sinha and Anushka Shetty in the lead roles. Superstar Rajnikanth is back with another blockbuster and he plays a double role too.
Seasons Greetings. Till next week … ciao.
