In Defence of Saif Ali Khan: Smart Choices, Great Acting Keep Him Relevant

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , , , , on January 24, 2018 by saifalikhanonline

In an industry where you are as good as your last release, it is not surprising that obituaries are already pouring in for Saif Ali Khan’s supposed ‘sinking career’ post the box-office failure of Kaalakaandi – his eighth flop in a row. But that’s not a first for Saif.

Remember the barrage of bad films – Aashiq Awara, Imtihaan, Bambai Ka Babu, Aao Pyaar Karen – he acted in the 1990s, with critics and audiences pulling the noose on him almost unanimously?

Saif’s 25-year career has had ups and down – he has a history of being written off and bouncing back resiliently. If Main Khiladi Tu Anari salvaged him in the 90s, his boisterous energy in Dil Chahta Hai made us gush over him in the 2000s. Omkara established him as a performer par excellence, placing him in the breed of serious actors.

It is remarkable that he has managed to retain his sanity amidst a flurry of sly remarks and unsolicited advice after Kaalakaandi failed to set the box office ringing. But are we jumping the gun in drawing curtains over the Chhote Nawab’s film career? Going by his unusual cine-curve, we sure are.

Why is Saif Ali Khan un-‘Saif’ today?

Posted in Saif Ali Khan with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 23, 2018 by saifalikhanonline

When was Saif Ali Khan’s last solo success? Almost six years ago with home production Cocktail, a youth-oriented niche product that made a slim profit. Saif co-produced in 2012. When was the 10th Nawab of Pataudi’s last hit? Five years ago, ladies and gentlemen, in Race 2!

Yes, in 2013, he also co-produced and acted in the “zombie comedy” Go Goa Gone, which has now become a cult movie. In those days, the not-inexpensive film just broke even along with its worldwide earnings. In any case, its urban and urbane sophistication and even the humour clearly indicated a multiplex movie that was superlative. Like (very rare) offbeat movies, it deserved to be made on a judicious budget just for what it is. But every offbeat day is not Sunday!

The scenario since has been terrible. Saif has always balanced his assignments between solo leads and ensemble films, between commercial and midstream movies, but since then, it has been an alarming trajectory of flops or usually disasters (the degree of failure being much more).

Saif Ali Khan’s Kaalakaandi might help establish he has the skills

Saif Ali Khan has always tried to experiment with his roles in the past, but will his upcoming film Kaalakaandi finally help establish that his entire career has not been a fluke?

Saif Ali Khan has had an interesting career graph. From doing typical 1990s dramas to playing the man that has commitment issues, Khan has tried to adjust with changing times. In fact, this is even more reflective in the period he began taking risks in terms of the roles he chose to portray on screen. Kya Kehna, Love Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega, Dil Chahta Hai, Darna Mana Hai, Ek Hasina Thi, Parineeta, Salaam Namaste, Being Cyrus, Omkara, Eklavya: The Royal Guard and Aarakshan: the evolution of Saif the actor is there for all to see.

The actor’s last release, Chef, was an Indian remake of the American movie of the same name. Chef was a slice-of-life film directed by Raja Krishna Menon about a failing chef and father trying to get his life in order, professionally as well as personally. Granted, it was not as good as the original, but was definitely worth a watch.

Saif Ali Khan to patch up with Dinesh Vijan

The Bollywood star and filmmaker friend Dinesh Vijan are open to becoming a team again

A patch-up seems to be on the cards for Saif Ali Khan and Dinesh Vijan, after they parted ways three years ago. The duo floated Illuminati Films as partners and gave hits like Love Aaj Kal and Cocktail. However, their partnership ended in 2014, following differences after a couple of their films like Lekar Hum Deewana Dil and Happy Ending tanked. While issuing a statement, Saif had said that the split was amicable and profitable to both as they could produce more films individually. As it turned out, the statement was reportedly only partly true.

When their split became a reality, the two erstwhile friends started separate companies — Saif continued with Illuminati and Dinesh launched his banner, Maddock Films.

The idea of the film was not about zombies but discovering something alien,” Krishna said.

Saif Ali Khan-starrer “Go Goa Gone” was touted as the first Indian zombie-comedy and its director duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK say the second part might not feature the undead creatures.
