1/2 One would naturally have a lot of expectations from a movie starring actors like Rishi Kapoor and Supriya Pathak, but then even the best of actors cannot lift a film when the story tries to be funny but is not and has nothing special to offer. The storyline of All is Well is inspired from Shravan Kumar from Hindu mythology, whose amazing dedication to his parents is legendary. Umesh Shukla, who gave us a wonderful film in the form of 2012’s Oh My God! attempts to give a modern day twist to Shravan, in the form of a road trip, but it fails to entertain or engage the audience in any way. Inder (Abhishek Bachchan) is a frustrated young man who moves out of the house, sick and tired of his father (Rishi Kapoor) and the way his father treats his mother (Supriya Pathak). When he returns years later, he gets to know that his dad owes a lot of money to the goon Cheema (Mohammad Zeeshan Ayyub). For what happens next well, you need to see the movie. The music is nothing to boast about. Kanika Kapoor and Meet Bros Anjjan team up once again for Nachan Farrate. Fans of their music can never really get enough of their sounds and this one ranks close to Baby Doll and Chittyan Kalaiyaan. Overall, All Is Well feels like a random mish-mash of tracks, some of which manage to hold their own while others are better left untouched. We feel the album would have benefited from a single captain helming the ship, this simply feels like case of too many cooks creating an occasionally tasty mess. The performances of the lead actors such as Rishi Kapoor, Supriya Pathak and Abhishek Bachchan, as mentioned before are let down by the dialogues and plot. And Abhishek really needs to choose movies that help display his acting potential, instead of just doing movies that make him do stuff that he has already done before. He has appeared as a solo lead after 5 years, but we doubt this is going to make much of a difference. We shall go with 1.5 stars for this movie.

While most celebrities are too self-absorbed on Twitter to go beyond their own social-media pages, Abhishek Bachchan for one seems determined to bring about some changes. The actor recently tweeted against all the negativity prevalent in the social media sphere and he has even offered up a unique solution for it. He has started a #BePositive hashtag through which he aims to spread love and positivity. Abhishek tweeted, “Way too much negativity on Twitter…. Starting a hash tag… #BePositive gotta spread the love and positivity guys. Let’s post just positive stuff today. Let’s see what happens. Do what makes you happy today #BePositive.” The actor has already started getting tremendous response. Daddy Big B wrote, “#BePositive .. Congratulations Saina Nehwal for World Championship Finals entry… Saw your game last night.. now WIN the FINAL!!” Sophie Choudhry too joined in and wrote, “Love it! Needed & how!!! “Think like a proton & stay positive!” Wise words?? #BePositive.” Nargis Fakhri and Sidharth Malhotra are just some of the other actors who joined in the movement. We think Abhishek has indeed started a rather inspiring movement. Hopefully, it will deter people from cribbing, complaining and mud-slinging on Twitter for at least a day.
Amitabh Bachchan’s Shamitabh had all the makings of a mega blockbuster. Directed by Balki and starring Big B, Dhanush and Akshara Haasan, the film seemed like a sure fire winner on paper but failed to translate that into box office success. It was a moderate hit which grossly underplayed its potential. Now months after its release, Big B’s son Abhishek has spoke up about the movie and offered a reason for its failure. In a recent interview, Junior Bachchan said that the budgeting of the film was responsible for its failure. He said, “I think we got the budgeting wrong... I think the budget was wrong. We made it (budget) too expensive. If it could have been made in a controlled budget, it could have done better.” Well, everything seems clearer in hindsight and it seems to Bachchans have learnt their lesson. Abhishek also revealed some of his future plans and said that he has already started shooting for Hera Pheri and Housefull 3. He also cleared the air surrounding the possibility of Dostana 2 and revealed that its not happening. However, he confirmed that Rohan Sippy and Riteish Deshmukh are both keen on doing a Bluffmaster sequel and Rohan is already working on the script.
Now now, before you start getting any weird ideas, we should tell you that master prankster Abhishek Bachchan was only kidding around! It all began with Hrithik congratulating Jr Bachchan for completing 15 years in the industry. Farhan Akhtar and Uday Chopra too joined in the conversation and they soon began joking about how rarely Aditya Chopra is seen in public. While Uday claimed that seeing Adi was like a UFO sighting, Abhishek Bachchan went so far as to declare that he was just a rumour and did not really exist! It’s not often you get to see celebrities joking around like normal people in Twitter. Most of the times they are busy promoting their movies or getting into silly arguments with other celebs.
Of course it was all in good fun but it does make you wonder doesn’t it? Could it be possible that the head of India’s biggest film studio is in fact nothing more than smoke and mirrors, with probably a proverbial wizard hiding behind a curtain? What do you think guys?
Abhishek Bachchan’s much awaited comedy All Is Well is finally here and going by the hilarious character posters, nothing seems to be well with this family. While the title of the film is written on a road sign, a dapper looking Abhishek declares ‘It’s all about me”. Then you have Rishi Kapoor declaring - “It’s all about my problems!” Apparently, their characters will be at loggerheads with each other throughout the movie with the lovely Asin trying her best to keep the family together. Her tagline reads, “It’s all about our crazy family!” But the most hilarious poster is the one featuring Supriya Pathak. It reads, “I don’t remember what it’s all about.” The film has been directed by Umesh Shukla who is best known for his movie ‘OMG - Oh My God’. It is slated to release on 21st August, 2015.
