CINEMA

Sister Act


Every aspiring actor will wish that he had a sister like Ekta Kapoor, the czarina of soaps. Her Balaji Telefilms, the most successful television production house in India, continues to make films to promote the career of her younger brother Tusshar Kapoor. Their latest film, Kya Kool Hai Hum, has Tusshar, Ritesh Deshmukh and glam girls Neha Dhupia and Isha Koppikkar. Directed by Sangeeth Sivan, the film is said to be a "sex-laced comedy on mistaken identity".

Tearjerker

Remember that Sean Penn classic I am Sam about a mentally challenged man fighting for custody of his seven-year-old daughter, and in the process, teaching his cold-hearted lawyer (Michelle Pfeiffer) the value of love and trust? Well, director Harry Baweja has been inspired to make a similar film, Main Aisa Hi Hoon with Ajay Devgan in the role of a man whose mental growth is that of a seven-year-old. He fights for the custody of his daughter from his rich NRI father-in-law.

Sushmita Sen plays the lawyer, while Esha Deol plays Ajay's wife.

The soft melody "Just Walk into my Life", sung by Shaan, is already a hit, and the film is sure to bring a lump to your throat.
