XCLUSIVE and First !!! JHOOM BARABAR JHOOM: Theatrical Trailer . . . . . . . . . . .

I'm so gald! oops! GLAD!! Actually I am so ecstatic that I am typing wrong spellings! The first trailer and first official teaser poster(or the news of them) of JHOOM BARABAR JHOOM appears first on BOLLYWOOD UNLIMITED before appearing on any blog/ entertainment bureau website. I feel both proud and humble. When it first appeared on YouTube, I was the first to see it and I immediately requested the provider for sending a subtitled version of the trailer for international visitors of BU. And guess what! It's here! For you only!

Now, let's stop bragging about myself and get straight to the point. To be frank, the
trailer, although not awesome, is still quite good. But there are a number of minuses too!

Now, what's Jhoom Barabar Jhoom? First and foremost, it's a Yash Raj Film. Yashraj's TA RA RUM PUM released. It stars Abhishek Bachchan, Bobby Deol, Lara Dutt, Preity Zinta in pivotal roles while Amitabh Bachchan is credited in a "Special Appearance" or an extended cameo role. Rumors are there that Shah Rukh Khan is in the film serving a cameo. For a fact, it has featured the English football team Chelsea extensively. It is directed by Shaad Ali Sahgal, who previously directed YRF productions like "Bunty aur Babli" and "Saathiya"

So, you may wonder, how's actually the trailer? Have a thorough knowledge of it before it downloads. To be frank, it's not awesome. It's not bad either. It's pretty much good.

The trailer kicks of with Abhishek and Preity sharing a same table (probably at Heathrow Airport). From their conversations, you know that they are strangers. AB Jr. introduces himself as Vicky Thackral and Preity herself as Albira Khan from Lahore.

The next scene, you spot Amitabh. He is in a different get-up.......can't explain...(just see to understand.. ....err! what was that? Is he (or the costume designer or the makers) trying to be "cool", "smart" and "different"? Let me tell that it isn't. It's only an expression of bad taste and tackiness. The director/he has to understand that he is 64+ now and he just doesn't suit the get-up. Anyways!! He seems to be the सूत्रधार / Narrator/ Manipulator of the story.

However, a couple of scenes go and we again see AB and PZ talking. AB tell her "Do you think I'm a flirt?". Then Preity tells her about her fiancé she's waiting for - Bobby Deol. Abhishek too shows his engagement ring and tells her about his fiancee - Lara Dutt.

Then, we have a series of scenes where each one of the 4 character (alone or together) appear in different scenes, dance sequences (one of them is in front of Eiffel Tower). Meanwhile, we see Amitabh crooning the title song rendered awesomely by Shankar Mahadevan, lyrics penned by Gulzar.

In the last scene, we hear AB Jr. asking Preity if she had sex with Bobby!!!!!!!!!! What's that! Is it a mammoth tale of extra-marital affair or something else? KANK anyone? It's not clear. I request you to imagine at your best what it actually is about.

Of the actor's looks, I've already commented on Amitabh. Now come to his son, he too pretends to be smart but isn't. His beard and long hair doesn't arouse anything but disgust in you. His dialogue delivery too is very bad. Bobby looks at his best.This is the best get-over he's ever got. Lars's hairstyle and look are likable. Out of the main cast, Preity looks best. She's definitely gorgeous in this movie.

Tell me how the trailer is and which movie they've copied this time.
