Here are 5 reasons why Kaalakaandi is a must watch:

Saif Ali Khan

Saif Ali Khan outshines in this whacky rollercoaster of a film with his eccentric, uninhibited and fearless performance. The actor has gone all out in Kaalakaandi and you can’t help but laugh at his characteristics and dialogues. His braided hair look definitely steals the show!

Kaalakaadi is not black comedy says Saif Ali Khan

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 10, 2018 by saifalikhanonline

Actor Saif Ali Khan attended promotional press conference for his upcoming film ‘Kaalakaandi’ on Monday in Mumbai. During press interaction, Saif said that ‘Kaalakandi is not black comedy.

From the trailer of ‘Kaalakandi’, most of the audience assuming that it comes under black comedy genre but Saif Ali Khan has different opinion on it, he said, “I don’t think it’s a black comedy. I think it is just comedy. Black comedy makes it sound like little niche. Playing a character who is consuming acid (Lysergic acid diethylamide) and being on a such powerful drug is difficult just to make it up so that was challenging for me and we did lot of preparation on that”

Saif Ali Khan completes his 60th film with Kaalakaandi

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 8, 2018 by saifalikhanonline

Saif Ali Khan, who has spent 25 years in Bollywood, entertaining the audience with an array of films like ‘Dil Chahta Hai’, ‘Omkara’ and ‘Being Cyrus’ amongst many others, hits the momentous 60th film mark with debutante director Akshat Verma’s ‘Kaalakaandi’. The actor, who is known for picking distinguishable roles, zeroed in on the dark comedy admittedly after giving it a lot of thought. Eventually, Saif immersed himself so much into the project that he even choreographed the wedding song in the film, ‘Kaala Doreya”. Even earlier on in his career, Saif had suggested hook steps for the song ‘Woh Ladki Hai Kahan’ in ‘Dil Chahta Hai’.

Nary Singh, who is one of the most-talked about characters from the promos of the film, had a fan-girl moment, while working with Saif. While shooting pivotal scenes with him, she was not only awestruck by the actor’s presence on the set, but was also nervous while enacting her scenes. When the director brought it to Saif’s notice, he went out of the way to make her feel comfortable.

Other than Saif, the film also boasts of interesting characters that will draw you into its funny, yet dark narrative. Actor Deepak Dobriyal, known for his performances across indie and mainstream films, tutored his co-stars in the Haryanvi dialect for the movie. While shooting the song, ‘Swagpur ka Choudhary’, a break-meets-funk-rock number with a dash of Haryanvi lyrics, most of the actors found it difficult to lip sync the lines correctly. Deepak, who plays a gangster in the film, came to their rescue and explained the meaning of the lines, which helped his co-stars to slip into the right mood for the number.

Neil Bhoopalam, who plays an underworld don styled himself keeping the fashion of the 80s and Amitabh Bachchan in mind. His look is replete with long side locks, bell-bottoms and tight shirts. The actor also watched the superstar’s movies to effectively copy his mannerisms.

The film also stars actors like Vijay Raaz, Sobhita Dhulipala, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Akshay Oberoi, Shehnaz Treasury, Shivam Patil and Amyra Dastur.

Kaalakaandi, produced by Cinestaan Film Company and Flying Unicorn, releases on January 12.

Kaalakaandi song ‘Kaala Doreya’ reveals complexities of Saif Ali Khan’s character

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 30, 2017 by saifalikhanonline

The new song of Saif Ali Khan starrer Kaalakaandi titled Kaala Doreya is out and it is surely going to be another wedding song. Sung by Neha Bhasin, rapper Raxstar also has a rap segment in the song.

Neha Bhasin’s voice adds to the entire flirtatious nature of the song, and makes it worth listening to. The song has been composed by Sameer Uddin. While the song has a special performance by Akshay Oberoi and Amyra Dastur with Saif Ali Khan in the film, the YouTube video features small snippets from the film itself. The little deviation lies in the introduction of a slow, funky beat that keeps the song peppy, and the rap by Raxstar.

Ever heard of a wedding song with a psychedelic twist to it? There are various scenes where Saif hallucinates things which are not actually there.

The trailer of the film received positive response from the audience and Saif can be seen in a different avatar. As revealed earlier, Kaalakaandi chronicles the story of six complete strangers living in Mumbai in a span of 12 hours and how their lives intersect.

Did you groove to Kaala Doreya in a recent shaadi?

Kaalakaandi is a thrilling dark comedy written and directed by Akshat Verma and produced by Cinestaan Film Company and Flying Unicorn Entertainment. The film stars Saif in the lead role while Akshay Oberoi, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Deepak Dobriyal, Vijay Raaz, Sobhita Dhulipala and Isha Talwar play pivotal parts.

Saif Ali Khan is not the most popular Khan in the Indian film industry but he is a Khan and you should have no doubt about that. He could easily be ringing the cash register doing movies like Golmaal or Kick but instead the Nawab has been trying to bring sensible cinema our way with movies like Chef and Kaalakaandi. We would rather watch Saif Ali Khan try and fail each time with movies like Kaalakaandi than never have him try at all.

Saif Ali Khan Takes A Bold Chance With Kaalakaandi

Saif Ali Khan is bringing Kaalakaandi after the feeble hit Chef with a team that has been pretty bang on in the past.
