SOUMITRA CHATTERJEE'S BOLLYWOOD DEBUT

It seems Sujoy Ghosh has managed to do what Raj Kapoor and Hrishikesh Mukherjee couldn't. He has got the grand old man of Bengali film industry to finally sign a Hindi film. Soumitra Chatterjee was to Satyajit Ray what Toshiro Mifune was to Akira Kurosawa and Marcello Mastroianni was to Federico Fellini. The Oscar winning director collaborated with Chatterjee in 14 out of his 34 films. And today, even at 79, the actor can make hearts race with his distinguished good looks and his recitation of Tagore's verses when not flexing his acting chops. In a career spanning almost half a century, the Padma Bhushan awardee has received many offers from top filmmakers in Bollywood, several from Hrishikesh Mukherjee, but he could not be persuaded to leave Bengal for Bombay. He is believed to have even turned down Raj Kapoor who had apparently approached him for Sangam. However, the Dadasaheb Phalke Awardee has finally accepted his first Hindi film, Sujoy Ghosh's upcoming, Durga Rani Singh.

 

COWABUNGA!
The new 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' trailer shows off the action!

The latest trailer for the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is here, and it effectively raises the bar on the action seen in the last spot. Here, the turtles show off their best moves — and we all get to take a good look at Shredder. An early photo of Shredder made him look a bit more like a Transformer than TMNT fans may remember, though that's hardly a reason to believe that there won't be plenty of ninja action to love! The new trailer retains the grimy, brooding look introduced in earlier teasers, with the "heroes in a half-shell" impressively realised in classy CGI. The Dark Knight's William Fichtner plays the nefarious Shredder, who reigns supreme over New York with the help of the evil Foot Clan until the turtles intervene.
