Kriti Sanon on Filmfare: Is she the next big thing?

Kriti Sanon made her debut in ‘Heropanti’ last year and the pretty actress was immediately noticed, not just by the top filmmakers in the industry but even a superstar like Akshay Kumar, who went out of his way to recommend the actress for his upcoming film ‘Singh Is Bling’.

Unfortunately, the first schedule of the Prabhu Deva directed film was delayed several times and Kriti was offered a dream role in Shahrukh Khan’s upcoming Christmas release ‘Dilwale’.

Kriti decided to let go of ‘Singh Is Bling’ in favour of ‘Dilwale’, a Rohit Shetty directed film where she has been paired opposite Varun Dhawan.

Is she the next big thing in Bollywood? Filmfare thinks so. Check out the cover of their latest issue featuring Kriti!

  • Gabbar Is Back Review by Nipun:

    Akshay Kumar’s latest material GIB is a typical masala remake which has been made like a B-grade film with a social message. Many people think the so called “social message” in a film should be regared as the yard-stick to judge a film and this is the reason why some fools consider movies like Jai Ho and Gabbar as quality films. But it’s not fair at all. Social message in a film depends on its genre, but not on its technicality. So, considering all the films,based on social issue as great is not right at all. Gabbar is based on today’s corruption and a man who is fighting against it like a superhero(but, without supernatural power) .

    The worst thing about many of these typical masala films is that they can cross any limit of manipulation to make the audience emotional. The hospital scene as well as the murder scene of the most corrupted officer,the father of a boy of Gabbar’s team are not fully convencing even though they may make you emotional( particularly the former one).

    I don’t even want to go with the logic because most of the movies in this genre are illogical. But, main problem with Gabbar is that it diverts too much. The comic scenes work sometimes, but mostly they offer nothing. The dialogues are sometimes clap-worthy . The cringe-inducing scenes are many. Remember the hospital scene where the wife of a dead husband says, “mera pati jeeteji jo kam nahi kar paya tha, woh marne ke baad kar diya”? This dialogue should have been replaced by a better one because this scene created a comic timing when you are serious and emotional. Gabbar is so silly that you cann’t take its things seriously. They are like jokes.

    Moreover, Gabbar offers nothing in terms of performances. Akshay Kumar has done a good job here and I feel he is better than his contemporaries(salman and Ajay) in this genre. He delivers mass-friendly dialogues, fights with his enemies, does some over-the-top actions and walks like a Boss. But, how many times we will watch Akki in such roles? It gives him a different looks, which looks good. Shruti Hassan looks extremely beautiful and sexy, but here she has overacted badly. Kareena Kapoor’s special appearance is easily forgettable. She just comes and disappears. Many won’t even remember about her timing after watching the film. A masala film should contain powerful villians. But in Gabbar, villians look too dominated. The actors in the police character have done decent jobs. I wonder why Chitrangada Singh agreed to do such a B-grade item number which is more a body show than than a dance number!

    Music is average. I liked Teri Meri Kahani. Background score is some times irritating and some times decent. The cinematography provides nothing great.

    So, Gabbar is an easily forgettable film. I liked three things about Gabbar. First, Akshay Kumar. Second, the song Teri Meri Kahani and third, the climax. Gabbar ends in a satisfactory way. Masala filmgoers are likely to be satisfied by Gabbar thanks to its climax and the hospital scene and it can be enjoyed in Theatre too if you prefer watching films leaving your brain. But don’t expect too much from it. It is Jai Ho of 2015, although it has better performances. So in my final word, Gabbar is easily forgettable, manipulative and a bit dated. I am going with a generous two stars(ofcourse! It’s not even a two stars material, but I left the theatre with a smile which is why I felt like it had satisfied my heart,if not mind at that time).

    RATING: 2/5

  • real beauty,.. long legs,.. nt a plastic made doll… shes got great expressions..n hot body… she cn do movies with any age group stars…
    she wad stunning in ek ka dum opposite mahesh babu.
    #supercute aaliya vs # superhot kriti..

  • Cant wait for her n Varuns magic to sizzle on screen this Christmas in their modern adaptation of Kings original crap from 1995 DDLJ retitled as ‘Varunwale Le Jayenge Dilwale Ko’

  • Shes too hot n definitely too young to play our kings daughter in Varunwale so I think she will play role of Sarkars grandaughter…!

  • I don’t think so. She’s not that good looking nor does she seem to be super talented. Dilwale will give her all lot more exposure though.

  • yes she is the next big thing.she has got the looks,the acting talent and also very good in choosing films.she skipped of sib for dilwaale showing she has the guts and also script she is now the heroine of varun dhawan in a film also starring srk-kajol and directed by MR.Shetty!!!

  • haters will say kriti has given a hit to SRK just like DP, anushka gave CE, OSO, Rab ne etc.

  • Now she is small actress but after dilwale.
    She will become famous like deepika and anushka …. !!!
    Unlike our bhai every actress is being disappeared from bollywood. Lol!

  • she is lucky.because she could act film with srk.but couldn’t be next big thing.
    Dilwale 195-245 cr

  • had been a khan starrer movie the both taran and indicine had doubled the collections of BOI

  • Deepika (Launched in with SRK)
    Anushka (Launched in with SRK)
    Kriti (2nd film with SRK)
    it’s off course the next big thing!!!

    Haters come up with negative comments so early…but who can hide the reality???

    Criminal Salman gonna be in jail…these haters can bettercomment under those articles

  • I was really worried about her when she signed Singh is 70 cr but now Iam really optimistic about her. She got everything to be the next Madhuri.
    please K dont sign Akki’s movies. He really knows just how to ruin others career like what he did to Shrutti Hassan. Just aviod king of flops.

  • I dont think she got anything big asShe will remain unnoticed in the film as the charismatic pair of srk-kajol and their acting will take all the attention.There are two greatest actors srk-kajol…Its difficult to perform equal to their calliber

  • She’s damn beautiful.. She was great in 1 Nennokadine.. She’ll make a great pairing with actors like HR, Ranbir, Shahid, Varun and Sid..
