First topic message reminder :

Synopsis

Radhe (Salman Khan) is one of the wheels of the mafias, but with a difference. He is a trained street fighter and shooter who is totally fearless. A man who can keep his cool, in a situation where death itself is looking at him in the eye. He is rebellious and loves to defy authority. He cannot think of being in any other position but the leader's, always fighting his way to impossible goals. He works for Ganibhai, the most dreaded Mafioso, but on his own terms.

Mafia Don Ganibhai (Prakash Raj) has a great mind for strategy, which is razor sharp. He stays in a foreign country but comes to India whenever the need arises. He is revered and feared by friends and foes alike. Ganibhai is the worst enemy anyone could wish for. He is vindictive to the point of being sadistic. He will not only destroy his enemy but wipe him off completely.

Radhe is in love with a girl named Jhanvi (Ayesha Takia). They share a strange love hate relationship. Jhanvi tries to change him by imploring him to leave the world of crime, but Radhe, though he loves her, is too hardcore a criminal to adhere to her wishes.

Radhe moves ahead in his criminal world by single handedly eliminating Ganibhai's enemies with his wit, grit and fearless strategy. A time comes when Ganibhai, whom Radhe has never seen arrives in India specially to meet him. He then offers Radhe a job, which Radhe for the first time refuses point blank, in return making Ganibhai his biggest enemy. Then comes the surprise element of the story, a twist that changes the very premise on which the story is based on. A shocking twist that makes Radhe - WANTED by the mafia and by the law.

"Ab dimaag se sochunga, dil se nahin" - Salman Khan

Salman Khan is going all out for WANTED. It's a crucial film in his career. "Yes, it is. It's a film that my fans would love to see me in," Salman tells me. Those who've watched the film feel Salman has excelled himself. "My dad [Salim Khan] feels it's my best performance ever," he confides with utmost modesty.

The past few Fridays haven't been too good for Salman. He's had a line up of unsuccessful films. "Yes, I agree. I did those films for friends. I forgot that I am responsible to my fans. I forgot that they [the fans] are my priority. But those films were mistakes. It's better to upset one person [producer] than upset your fans, who look up to your films earnestly," Salman admits. He's not taking chances anymore. "I've decided to take control of the situation. Ab dimaag se sochunga, dil se nahin," he smiles.

Salman says he enjoyed working in WANTED. "It's a great entertainer. It's one of those masala films that has solid content, great stunts, very good music and of course, stylised direction. Prabhu Dheva is not merely a superb choreographer, but an equally proficient storyteller as well," he says.

Is it a scene-to-scene remake of the Tamil film POKIRI? "No, it isn't. We've made certain changes in the film," he reveals, adding in the same breath, "I didn't want to watch the original because that would've influenced me," he reveals. Strange, he hasn't watched the original movie. "Yes, Boney-ji did keep a screening for me, I was also in the theatre when the screening started, but I wasn't watching the movie. My mind was somewhere else, I was completely detached," Salman states.

Feature: Dil Bole Hadippa and Wanted give Bollywood a ray of hope![You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Dark clouds, which kept hovering over had to go and they are all set to go this week to welcome bright sunshine day on Friday. Yes, after three consecutive disastrous weeks, here comes a ray of hope with two big films releasing on this Friday. Both the flicks have potential to impress the critics. And even if they don’t, there is nothing that can stop audience to witness for themselves the position of the films. Let’s have a look over these two bigges we are raving about, and see what makes them worth giving a shot!
Dil Bole Hadippa!: Yash Raj Banner’s, latest star Shahid Kapoor and Rani Mukherjee in a “Sikh’ and never seen before super-sexy attire. Ain’t these elements enough to get millions of hearts out there? Yes, Dil Bole Hadippa! indeed comes across as a complete entertainer. Many comparisons have been made with Yash Raj’s former creation Chak De! India, due to sports element, but that gives Dil Bole Hadippa! an edge over the other film releasing this week. Another interesting fact about this film is that it also serves, as a re-launch vehicle of Anurag Singh who’s Raqeeb did not really work wonders at the box-office. So, how the captain of the ship fares this time with YRF’s backing remains to be seen. Surely Dil Bole Hadippa will be interesting to watch.
[B]Wanted: Salman Khan is indeed the USP of Wanted. However, another strong reason to venture in this film is choreographer turned director Prabhu Deva. Wanted is an action-thriller and has all the elements in place to woo the audience to the theatres. Vigorous promotions and a huge hype have already marketed this film in the minds of people. Salman in never seen before energetic avatar has created buzz among his fans. So, this one again has got loads of potential to create magic.

WANTED's Radhe will finish TERE NAAM baddies in

Abid, Bollywood Trade News Network


Salman Khan's on-screen name, Radhe, in TERE NAAM became a rage and so did his hairstyle. Those who are not very conversant with Bollywood happenings will be surprised to know that Salman Khan's on-screen name in WANTED is the same as it was in TERE NAAM, Radhe!

Radhe of TERE NAAM struck a chord with the audience, who felt strongly for the obsessed lover. So, what according to Salman is the difference between the two - Radhe of TERE NAAM and Radhe of WANTED? That was an interesting question put before the super star who was answering questions put up by the scribes during a promotional tour of WANTED. And the witty star answered in his usual casual style, ''Radhe of WANTED will kill all the bad guys who beat up Radhe of TERE NAAM in seconds.'' He elaborated by saying that Radhe of WANTED is very powerful, his job is to kill, while Radhe of TERE NAAM was a lover, a boy just out of college, who could not protect himself from the goons and was bashed up so badly that he ended up going crazy.

Right said, Salman. This makes WANTED all the more wanted for all those hardcore action fans of yours who have been starved for some 'desi' style action from their favourite star.

[Wanted highlight: Do or die for Salman Khan

Thursday, September 17, 2009, 10:36
By Raymond Ronamai

With the much-awaited film Wanted all set for release tomorrow (18th September), Salman Khan’s heart must be beating like never before. It’s a sort of ‘do or die’ film for him, as his last hit was Partner [^], and that was two years ago in 2007.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Buzz up!
The highlight of Wanted is no doubt Salman. He is leaving no stone unturned to make sure that it makes a good opening. The way he aggressively promotes it reveals the seriousness in him. This time around, he has taken up a complete action thriller instead of the regular com-rom he has been doing of late.


Wanted is a remake of Telugu film Pokiri, which was also remade in Tamil with the same title. In the Hindi version, Salman acts withAyesha TakiaAzmi, who is also trying to find her foothold after taking a long break following her marriage.

Salman plays a hard-core gangster [^] and Ayesha plays a simple girl who has the notion that everything in the world is good. However, her life takes a U-turn after meeting Salman. How Salman gets away with other gangsters one by one forms the rest of the story.

This film is vital for Salman on more ways than one. After Partner, he did many mediocre films that didn’t click at the box-office and thus hampered his reputation. This time around, he is trying all he could to revive the past glory. He said that his fans would love this great entertainer. He added that his dad Salim feels it is his best performance so far.

Salman confessed that he made mistake by doing many films for his friends, which eventually failed at the box-office. He added that he forgot his responsibility to his fans. He is determined to make the fans his priority from now on.

For the lead heroine Ayesha Takia [^] Azmi, it is a sort of a comeback film. She has abandoned films after she got married. Is there life after marriage for Bollywood actresses? We will come to know the answer when Wanted hits the theatres the morrow.

In fact, the fate of the film [^] will very much determine the future of both Salman and Ayesha. Wanted is produced by Boney Kapoor [^] and directed by choreographer turned actor turned director Prabhu Deva.

Let’s wait and watch if the audience will love Wanted!

Wanted :: Movie Review :: India Fm

This is for fans and foes of Salman Khan...
Fans, rejoice, Salman is back with a vengeance with WANTED. This is his deadliest performance to date. Yes, you read it right!
Foes, sorry, you won't be able to lash out at him or pick on him or launch a vicious tirade this time. The spate of flops should come to a grinding halt with WANTED.

Let's get this straight. WANTED rides on Salman Khan's star power. He may not be the best actor in town, but in a film like WANTED, in a role that seems like an extension of his personality, you can't think of anyone else enacting this role with flourish.

Write your own movie review of Wanted
A remake of POKIRI [made in Telugu and Tamil versions], WANTED is a full on masala film. Recall the successful potboilers of yore. Recall how the good guy would reduce 10 hoodlums to pulp in a fraction of seconds. Recall how heroism prevailed in the end, no matter how adverse the circumstances were or how powerful the villains would be. Recall those movies in which logic took a backseat since the focus was on entertainment... You relive those moments as reel after reel of WANTED unfolds.

A departure from candyfloss movies and diabetic-sweet characters that most Hindi movies boast of, WANTED takes you back to those days when popular cinema reigned supreme, when the sole motive of the film-maker was to entertain.

The daring hero and his herogiri, the naïve girlfriend, the corrupt cop, the dreaded don, the don's moll, the fist-clinching henchmen... WANTED is for those who seek unabashed entertainment and relish masala films. Damn the indomitable critics, pseudo intellectuals and connoisseurs of parallel cinema, this one's not for them. WANTED is for the aam junta.

Radhe [Salman Khan] is a hardcore gangster. A sharpshooter with a sharp brain, he works for Gani Bhai [Prakash Raj], the dreaded Mafioso, but on his own terms. Totally fearless, Radhe single-handedly eliminates Gani Bhai's enemies one by one; making more enemies in the process.

He's astounded when the young and pretty Jahnvi [Ayesha Takia Azmi] professes her liking for him. Inspector Talpade's [Mahesh Manjrekar] lustful eyes fall on Jahnvi. He doesn't know that Jahnvi has developed a soft corner for Radhe.

Whether it's the Golden Gang or Data Pawle's Gang, everybody wants the biggest piece of the lucrative cake that is Mumbai and the only way to get it is to eliminate whoever gets in the way. As Mumbai reels under bloody gang wars, Commissioner Ashraf Khan [Govind Namdeo] vows to make the city crime free.

Director Prabhu Dheva serves a hardcore masala fare that's not inventive or path-breaking by any standard, but the execution of several scenes as also of stunts takes the graph of the film Northward. In fact, if at all there's any film that competes with GHAJINI as far as raw appeal goes, it's WANTED. Every action/stunt/chase here is choreographed with aplomb.

Watch out for the action sequence at the interval point or the penultimate half-an-hour. The climax is sure to send scores of action lovers in frenzy, as Salman bashes the evil forces black and blue. It wouldn't be erroneous to state that the climax is worth the price of the ticket, samosa, sandwich, popcorn, nachos and cola put together.

Not that this 18 reeler abounds in mindless action. As mentioned earlier, this one's a hardcore masala film and the narrative has its share of light moments and romantic sequences. Even the bad man here makes you laugh intermittently [when he's not spewing venom], especially in the sequence when the Commissioner of Police holds him captive in the middle of the sea. Even the romance between Salman and Ayesha charms its way into your heart. It's very likable.

But WANTED is not without its share of flaws. The film stands on a thin storyline and the viewer can guess what's in store next, which means that there's not much novelty in the plot. Besides, WANTED could've done without a song or two, thereby keeping its length in check.

Director Prabhu Dheva has presented Salman like never before. Most actors have drifted away from roles that hold tremendous mass appeal, that cater to the desi audience, like they did in the 1980s. SRK did it in OM SHANTI OM, Aamir Khan did it in GHAJINI and Salman does it so effortlessly in WANTED. The screenplay [Shiraz Ahmed] may not be foolproof, but it has its share of shining moments. Dialogues are clapworthy, especially those delivered by Salman.

Sajid-Wajid's music is of a mixed variety. 'Jalwa' is the best of the lot and the star presence of Anil Kapoor, Govinda and also Prabhu Dheva in this track will send the viewers into raptures. The remaining tracks oscillate between good and strictly okay. This review would be incomplete without the invaluable contribution by the action director. It deserves brownie points. Cinematography too is top notch.

Salman is like a ferocious lion who roars with all his might. The show belongs to the actor, who scorches the screen every time he displays the manic anger. Without doubt, Salman gives the power to WANTED. It's his best work to date.

Ayesha Takia Azmi is very good and the pairing with Salman looks wonderful. Vinod Khanna is sidelined. He deserved more footage. Mahesh Manjrekar is excellent. He's only getting better with every film. Prakash Raj is first-rate. The accomplished actor adds yet another feather to his cap. Govind Namdeo is perfect.

Mahek Chahal radiates oomph. Aseem Merchant is alright. Raju Mavani is effective. Inder Kumar and Sajid are okay. Manoj Pahwa tries hard to make you laugh. Prateeksha Lonkar is as usual.

On the whole, WANTED rides on Salman, Salman and only Salman Khan's star power. A masala film that's aimed at the masses, WANTED is backed by tremendous hype and hoopla, which will result in the film taking an earth-shattering start at the ticket window. The Idd celebrations in the coming days will only enhance the business of the film, which means that the film will have a solid Week 1. The holidays in Week 2 should also be bountiful, thereby ensuring a strong place in the 'Hit' category.

**** - 4 Stars

Salman Khan Promoting Wanted

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

===========

Wanted: Common man's superstar delivers[/SIZE][/COLOR]

You've had your share of Kaminey, Baabarr and other serious cinema. Now sit back and take a trip back in time to what cinema was all about: pure action, pure masala. Wanted is Salman’s film right from the word ‘Go’ and after a spate of flops - Marigold, God Tussi Great Ho, Heroes, Yuvvraaj - Sallu's back with a pretty loud bang. A remake of the immensely popular South film Pokiri, Wanted has the ingredients of a typical masala potboiler.

Radhe (Salman Khan) is the notorious hitman who will kill just about anything for money. He works for the international Don Gani Bhai (Prashant Raj) but won’t hesitate to change sides if there’s more moolah offered in the bargain. In the process of eliminating Gani’s enemies, he only ends up making dozens more. He comes across doe eyed beauty Jhanvi (Ayesha Takia) who confesses her love for him but has corrupt cop Talpade’s (Mahesh Manjrekar) lustful eyes on her. Working alongside Gani’s right-hand man Golden (Aseem Merchant), he’s out to crush all rival gangs. Commissioner Ashraf Khan (Govind Namdev), meanwhile, works hard to bring peace in the city of Mumbai.

Salman Khan is in his fittest form ever and singlehandedly carries the film on his back. His presence is dominant and from the action, to the dancing, he simply blows us away (no pun intended). Ayesha Takia on the other hand puts the ‘V’ back in voluptuously sexy, and could give any south Indian actress a run for her money. Her scenes with Salman in the elevator and the train are something to look forward to in the film. You simply love to hate Mahesh Manjrekar as the conniving cop while Prashant Raj proves he isn’t a National award winning actor for nothing. However he only gets to prove his acting prowess in the second half of the film.

Vinod Khanna and Inder Kumar don’t have much scope but are integral to the climax. I can already imagine the catcalls and the whistles at what is the mind-blowing climax of the film, Sallu fans will be blown off the roof. This also extends to the last fight which leaves you in awe. Director Prabhu Deva does a fantastic job with the script and while he falters with a couple of cheesy romantic scenes, cinematographers Nirav Shah and S Sriram truly deserve a special mention. The music is suited to the pace of the film with ‘Jalwa’ and ‘Dil Leke’ being the only hummable tracks.

Boney Kapoor can finally heave a sigh of relief and his days of being hard-up may have come to an end. Salman is the superstar of the common man and he knows how to satisfy them well, leaving Wanted as the ultimate Paisa Vasool flick of the year!

Salman Khan's Wanted gets good review

Friday, September 18, 2009, 12:22 [IST]
By Raymond Ronamai

After doing mediocre films for two years, Salman Khan is back with a bang through Wanted. It's a surprise of sort for Salman to take up action thriller after getting emerged in rom-com films for a long time. The good news is that Wanted has received good review from all quarters. Yes, Salman is going to silence his critics for sure.

Buzz up!
It is said that Wanted is all about Salman and only Salman. It rides on him. He plays the role of a hard-core gangster who kills people for money. His stunt performances are said to be wonderful. Some even claimed that it is by far his best performance ever. He has Ayesha Takia Azmi for company. She plays a village girl, whose life changes completely after falling in love with a gangster.


Wanted is a remake of Telugu film Pokiri, which was also remade in Tamil with the same title. Boney Kapoor produces the Hindi version and choreographer cum actor Prabhu Deva directs it. Watch out for Wanted, as it hits the theatres today, 18th September.

See the Jalwa!

By: Histlist Team Date: 2009-09-18 Place: Mumbai


Salman Khan could not sit still at a promotional event for Wanted at a mall in Malad on Wednesday.

Bored of sitting on the dais with co-star Ayesha Takia and director Prabhu Deva, he sat on the floor, did a jig and even arm-wrestled with Ayesha. A children's dance group were adjudged winners of the Wanted contest.

The song Jalwa from the film Wanted has been leaked on the Internet.

The song along with Salman Khan features cameos by Anil Kapoor, Govinda and the director of the film Prabhudeva.

All pervasive Salman Khan: Overkill or bang on target?

Story By: HETAL ADESARA updated on: Sep 18, 2009

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

MUMBAI: Salman, Salman everywhere... for everyone to lap up! Two different genres of movies set for release within the span of one month... one is action packed, the other a romance drama... one star common to both - Salman Khan. While Wanted is releasing this week on Eid (18 September), his second film Main Aurr Mrs Khanna is releasing on Diwali (16 October).

With the festive fever catching up, it's time to rejoice and make merry and Salman is bending over backwards to aggressively promote both his films simultaneously with one clear aim in mind --- Get the maximum number of audience to the theaters! This is perhaps the first time ever that the actor has gone above and beyond everything to promote his movie with such gusto.

Since Muslims form approximately 25-30 per cent of India's population, producers shy away from releasing movies during the holy month of Ramzan every year. Not surprisingly, the one month Ramzan period saw audience drying up in theatres for the lack of good Hindi movie releases and what better Eid cheer can one ask for than to be treated with a power-packed Salman Khan movie? Little wonder then that the actor of the masses is finally all out to woo his audience a la his peers.

Promotions for both his upcoming movies has kept Salman even busier than a bee. From music launches, brand tie-ups, charities, Dus Ka Dum, mall visits, to fan interactions, this Khan is omnipresent. In the news for all the right reasons, Salman has made sure the public at large is bombarded with his movies and activities around them. So much so that while browsing news and general entertainment channels, one just can't miss him. This weekend, Salman will have the crew of Wanted comprising producers Boney Kapoor and Sridevi, director Prabhudeva and co-star Ayesha Takia as guests on his show Dus Ka Dum that is aired on Sony. While it may come across as an overdose of Salman Khan across all media, this brouhaha was a prerequisite in order for him to rise from the ashes like a phoenix.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Industry watchers say that Salman has realised that he needs to go all out and promote his films. Additionally, the fact of the matter is that his last big hit was in 2007, which is when Partner was released. A spate of flops like Saawariya, God Tussi Great Ho, Hello, Heroes and Yuvvraaj did little to give his career the much needed fillip. With a mass-appeal movie like Wanted, he has a strong chance to get back into the pecking order and his promotions around the film are definitely going to help in getting the opening numbers at the box office windows.

Studio 18 director distribution (India) Aman Gill tells Businessofcinema.com, "I like the way Salman Khan has gone all out to promote his movie. It has created tremendous curiosity and he has done something that he's never done before by starting his promotions three weeks prior to the movie's release just like the way Shah Rukh Khan did for Om Shanti Om, Aamir Khan did for Ghajini and Saif Ali Khan did for Love Aaj Kal."

Sony Entertainment Television senior vice president business development Sunil Punjabi opines, "The all powerful hulk is out and making his mark in public. The large hearted Khan is doing everything right - touching the right emotional cord: now with his shirt on! He is seen making an impact with the kids and more so now with NGOs thus reaching a larger family audience. He has lost inches and is looking good and fit. Though suddenly you see a lot of Salman, it was always due. The other Khans leave no stone unturned closer to their release; so why even question Sallu mia?"

Film editor Ashmith Kunder adds, "Salman is a huge star and his movies have big money riding on it. So it is really great that he is going all out to promote Wanted. While some say that the promotions have been done to the hilt, with great budgets come great responsibilities!"

While Salman may have realised that marketing a film and generating hype is crucial, it is finally the content that...

will talk. The opening weekend numbers will tell us whether his efforts have paid off or not! We hope they do!

Wanted movie review: Salman Khan is back !

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Prabhu Deva's directorial debut 'Wanted' is all set to release today. Most Wanted Bollywood actor Salman Khan is once again ready to rule the hearts of millions of his fans.

Salman Khan has played the character of Radhe—a hardcore gangster or you can say a contract killer who kills anyone for money.

The action lovers could spend money for Wanted. Wanted is hindi remake of Telugu film Pokhiri.

The soul of the movie is its action. Apart from this, nothing is new in the movie.

The movie begins with Radhe (Salman Khan) is a contract killer and roams around with his friends. Radhe falls in love with Ayesha Takia (Janhvi). Mahesh Manjrekar, who plays a character of cop Talpade has also an eye on Janhvi.

Prakash Raj has played the role of Gani—Radhe's boss who operates from abroad. He comes to India to kill a minister. But before they execute their plan the minister is killed. After glorifying the hero, the movie ends with a flat climax. The hero terminates the villain at end.

As usual old Bollywood recipe. The only gradient in the movie is Salman Khan. You can say the only reason to watch 'Wanted' is Bollywood machoman Salman Khan and his actions.

The pace of the movie is being hindered by too many songs. It should be avoided to keep movie going. Overall, it's above the average ang you should enjoy the weekend with 'Wanted'


Starcast: Salman Khan, Ayesha Takia, Mahesh Manjrekar, Prakash Raj
Director: Prabhu Dheva
Rating: ***

Salman Khan is back with a bang...and how! Wanted is an unpretentious paisa vasool entertainer that lives up to the massive hype. It’s the comeback-with-a-roaring-vengeance of a superstar who had taken himself for granted for a wee bit too long a time period. Khan seems determined to prove his detractors wrong and his awe-inspiring Hero-giri in this hardcore commercial film floors you completely.

The storyline is wafer thin and there’s absolutely nothing that you haven’t seen before. Radhe (Salman) is a tapori supari killer who doesn’t go back on his ’commitment’. He shifts loyalties between warring gangs, falls in love with pretty Jahnvi (Ayesha Takia), sings songs in scenic Greece locales and then his master Ghani bhai (Prakash Raj ) is forced to return to Mumbai from his safe haven due to trouble in Mumbai’s bhaigiri-paradise.

Wanted adapts every single formula that was very prolific in the cinema of eightees. A deluge of gun shots, liberal blood flow, crackling bones, absolutely unreal song situations and even a bit of rape altercation. But still you enjoy this ride thoroughly. Why? Well, the film never pretends to be anything other than a commercial entertainer. The stylised action scenes, an ample dose of humour and the spicy South Indian idea of herogiri takes you on a joyride.

The film is the best work of Salman Khan since Karan Arjun. He is sincere, earnest and very very involved in each and every scene. His acting has panache, the dancing is joyous, action is incredible, romances with aplomb and also delivers many loud-whistle-worthy dialogues. The action scenes in the train and the climax scenes are a delight. Ayesha looks cute and thankfully she has shed that baby fat. Mahesh Manjrekar is a scene stealer as the slimy corrupt police man. But the biggest surprise of the film is Prakash Raj. Now, he is the National Award winning best actor for Kancheevaram this year. He stuns with his persona and facial expressions. Don’t miss the scenes where he is interrogated by the Police. Funny and grotesque, all at the same time.

Sajid-Wajid’s music is notable for Jalwa and Dil Le Ke Dard-e-Dil. Rest of the songs are ordinary and a few songs could have been removed from the film. Incidentally Sajid also makes his acting debut in the film as one of Salman’s friends. A big miscast. Vijayan Master’s Action is the big highlight of the film. Editing is jumpy and jarring, very typical of South Cinema. It makes the cinematic experience a bit of a distraction. Some of Shiraz Ahmed’s dialogues are punchy and shall surely evoke claps-n-whistles.

Finally, Prabhudeva’s direction is an amalgamation of style, style and some more of it. Wanted is a fun film that doesn’t take itself seriously. It shall be patronised by both classes as well as masses. Nothing can stop it from being a huge hit. Go for it. Today.

Star Rating: 3 1/2
4/5

mid day's review

Informer
By: Histlist Team Date: 2009-09-18 Place: Mumbai

A Hero Returns

Remember those '80s movies when the hero's entry drew ceetees and taalees from the audiences? Remember the screams of, "kya dikhta hai," "kya marta hai!" etc.

Well that's how you will feel while watching Wanted. Which is not to say it's dated. It's just that the Hindi film hero is now a regular guy, and we were sort of missing that 'herogiri'.


Well, Salman has officially brought it back. We saw a special preview of the film and we gotta say, Salman is awesome in it.

Whether he is bashing up the baddies, performing Prabhudev-esque dance steps or romancing Ayesha Takia. Sallu bhai is gonna rock this Eid. The film hits the theatres worldwide today. Watch it.

Meanwhile...

At Salman Khan's personal trial for Wanted, besides his usual friends and family members like Sajid Nadiadwala, Arbaaz Khan, David Dhawan, Prabhu Deva and Amrita Arora, there was a surprise guest Sallu's ex-girlfriend Sangeeta Bijlani.

Now we know she is a close friend of her ex-Sallu's sister Alvira's, but strangely Bijli was not at her show held this week.

Girlfriend Katrina Kaif has been shooting in Bhopal for Rajneeti. But we can safely say Kat has nothing to worry about.

REVIEW: Salman's WANTED!

Kudos to Prabhu Deva for making the star dance like never before
By Jaya Biswas . Buzz18 Sep 18, 2009

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

He wears a Superman T-shirt, slides like the Spiderman and fights like the He-man. If you think this is too much, let me tell you, he dances as well. And boy! This time around he can make you fall for him in an instant with his moves. To put it shortly, Salman Khan rocks as Radhe - a tapori, a hitman - he listens to no one and works only for 'money'bhai.

A good mix of romance, comedy and songs spice up this action flick. Salman looks nothing like we saw him in No Entry, Partner or Yuvvraaj. The actor has not only shed a lot of weight, he almost dropped his typical accent as Radhe.

Also starring Ayesha Takia Azmi in the lead, Wanted is a remake of the 2006 Telugu film Pokkiri. Wanted marks the Bollywood debut of ace choreographer-turned-filmmaker Prabhu Deva. Kudos to him for making Salman dance like never before. For the first time ever Salman seems to enjoy his steps wholeheartedly (with right expressions) and not dance for the heck of it.

Sallu's Ganpati song, Jalwa, was apparently kept secret from audiences for very long before the release. Undoubtedly, it is the best of the lot. And why not, when someone like Prabhu Deva himself has choreographed it, nothing but the best is expected.

The film definitely has a South Indian touch and feel to it but the best part is, as a filmmaker Prabhu Deva doesn't try to experiment much. Yet whatever he does (read silly) he does it with oodles of style.

Prabhu Deva's take on Mughal-E-Azam's song Pyar Kiya Toh Darna Kya with Sallu and Ayesha looks too funny. The lovey-dovey episodes between Sallu and Ayesha sometimes make no sense at all. Sample this… Sallu and Ayesha get stuck inside the lift. Ayesha is frightened and comes closer to Salman. She gives a coy smile and Salman smiles back as Ayesha innocently asks if it is Vicco Vajradanti... Being juvenile is an understatement at this point.

There are far too many songs, which could have been well avoided.

Superstar Salman Returns with Bang !

Salman Khan is back with his most awaited flick of the year Wanted, which promises raw action, masala and mind-blowing dance and goes on to give you more than you bargained for

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

“Wanted provides the masses with the hero they’ve been longing for,” said Salman. The film could perhaps be a comeback for the actor who has suffered quite a few lows in the past year. Salman plays a notorious hitman in the film and speaks of his character, “Like my dialogue in the film, Jab main koi commitment kar leta hoon toh phir main apni bhi nahi sunta, my character only listens to what his heart says, he has no remorse, and is as arrogant as a bull. He has a set of values which he won’t go against and will kill at the sight of money.”

Salman Khan has gone to the extremes for his film, right from bidding farewell to a couple of his favourite vices to performing stunts and dancing like never before. “I have worked hard for the film, I did the stunts myself while cables were used only for a few. The dancing was the hardest part I think, Prabhu’s not called an elastic man for nothing. It would take me days to learn a step and I always felt I’d never get it right. The intensity that my character has during the fight sequences had to be doubled for the dance sequences, because whatever he does, he does straight from the heart.” He added.

But rather than Salman, its producer Boney who has his hopes pinned with the film, “Salman’s personality, attitude and style reflects in his character and no one could play the role better than him. He lights the screen with his dominating presence and will leave the audience in awe. I know for sure that the film will do wonders for the masses and will provide them with a film with all their favourite elements, action, romance and dance.” He says.

Salman is indeed the next most Wanted star in Bollywood!

4 Stars ****

+++++

Wanted
Avijit Ghosh , TNN 18 September 2009, 09:30pm IST

Brawn is back. So is Salman Khan. Rattled by a barrage of recent flops (Yuvvraaj, God Tussi Great Ho, Hello, Heroes), the actor appeared in dozens of television shows in the past few weeks hoping to stay alive in the viewer's mindspace.

Film: Wanted (Action)
Cast: Salman Khan, Ayesha Takia, Vinod Khanna, Prakash Raj, Mahesh Manjrekar
Director: Prabhu Deva
Duration: Two hours and 30 min
Critic's Rating: ****
Readers' rating :

Review this movie

He even went around a Delhi football stadium waving at crowds. He needn't have. In Wanted, the remake of a superhit Telugu film (also made in Tamil), Salman is like a force of nature. Unstoppable. Unbreakable. Unbeatable. As a trigger-happy criminal, he enthrals. As a deadpan lover, who gets to deliver some of the cleverest lines in recent Bollywood films, he amuses in equal measure. He does what only the most charismatic stars do: make an ordinary frame worth watching by sheer presence.

Salman plays a criminal named Radhey who is willing to kill without fear and without hesitation for money, the sort of guy of whom even the heroine says, "Gundon se zyada mujhe tumse dar lagta hai". The movie is an engrossing yarn of crooked cops, double-crossing villains and a love track - all told at a breathless pace. There's suspense too.

Director Prabhu Deva deftly manages to weave in the smaller narratives without losing control over the main story. Wanted is really about style. Smartly lensed, the movie has riveting fight sequences by action director Vijayan. Shiraj Ahmed's dialogues -- Bahut ghoor raha hai. Apni bahen ki shaadi karaega - are sure to induce plenty of seetis and taalis in single-screen theatres. The movie has some great songs too, including a super duet (Tum jaan jaan kehke meri jaan le gaye) and a track that DJs might adore, Mera hi jalwa. Deva gets uniform good work from the entire supporting cast: villain Prakash Raj makes you laugh without losing his mean streak. And Mahesh Manjrekar is a scene-stealer as the crooked cop.

In the recent past, Bollywood's action heroes seemed to have lost faith in the genre they once excelled in. Guys like Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgun abandoned their fists of fury and reinvented themselves as lover boys and comics. Other men of meat and muscle, Sunny Deol for instance, went out of the frame because they couldn't adjust to the changing public tastes.

But late last year, the winds of change could be felt as six-pack Aamir Khan's violent Ghajini became a blockbuster. Now with Wanted, the knuckle-crushing action flick roars back in an improved avtaar. In Bollywood, men are back.

Review: The Salman Khan show

Aniruddha GuhaFriday, September 18, 2009 21:30 IST

Wanted (A)
Director: Prabhudheva
Cast: Salman Khan, Ayesha Takia, Prakash Raj, Mahesh Manjrekar and Vinod Khanna
Rating: ** ½

Wanted, for starters, rests on an outdated plot that had been exploited in the Tamil and Telgu versions of the film.

Salman Khan fans, congratulations. This film has been made for you. Sit back and enjoy your favourite star fight, dance, act funny and entertain you in trademark 'bhai' style. Even if the ghosts of God Tussi Great Ho and Yuvvraaj still linger, worry not. This is Sallu at his best, even if the writing doesn't always help. Others who may like the film are those who enjoy a mélange of action, romance and comedy, even if the script has to suffer in the process. For those have who have no tolerance for inane sequences, unwanted songs and a plot that stretches over 150 minutes, stay away.

Wanted, for starters, rests on an outdated plot that had been exploited in the Tamil and Telgu versions of the film, both titled Pokiri, to advantageous returns. Salman plays the good hearted thug Radhe, who enemies fear and who gets every job done, no matter what the obstacles. Chehre se toh romantic hero lagta hai, tells the villain to him at one point.

There's more to him than that. Radhe doesn't mind resorting to violence to achieve his goals. He switches 'gangs' if it means a better career prospect and doesn't act on his feelings for a call centre girl (Ayesha Takia) because "paise ke peeche bhagega, toh ladki tere peeche bhagegi," he philosophises. The film has a few such gems of dialogues that make you guffaw from time to time, even if they aren't intended to. There's a twist in the end too, nothing you haven't seen in scores of films with a similar plot before. But you don't mind it because the story moves fast and the action keeps you hooked.

The credit for that goes mainly to director Prabhudheva, who in spite of a shaky script, makes the drama watchable with the help of well-executed action sequences and extracts a performance from Salman that would endear him to his fans. If only he could have kept unwanted comedy in the form of the annoying Manoj Pahwa and at least two songs out (the music is strictly pedestrian), the impact would have been much better.

Ayesha Takia does what is required of her: preen, pout and weep, while Mahesh Manjrekar plays a slimy, corrupt cop to perfection. Even though villain Prakash Raj - who incidentally won the National award for Best Actor only last week - does well, he looks more like, in the words of Radhe himself, "a B-grade villain."

But in the end, the film is an out-and-out Salman fest. If you have been able to survive the onslaught of marketing he unleashed on you for the last two months, this one should be a walk in the park.

Wanted Gets Good Start Dil Bole Hadippa Has Average Opening


Saturday 19th September 2008 09.30 IST

Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network



Dil Bole Hadippa had a decent start at the box office of around 60% at multiplexes and 35% at single screens. Delhi/NCR saw the best opening with collections of over 70%. Overall with a decent start and a holiday week it should manage a healthy week one total but it remains to be seen how it goes after thereafter.



Wanted had a bumper response outside the metroes of 90% plus but plexes of metroes like Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore underperformed with 50% collections. Overall the masses have liked the film and business is set to pick up further in muslim centres on Tuesday as the Ramadan fasts comes to and end but the average metro multiplex business may curtail the all India business unless they pick up over the weekend.

[B.O. update: 'Wanted' rocks single screens, 'DBH' better at plexes - By Taran Adarsh, September 19, 2009 - 08:35 IST

The keenly-anticipated biggies, WANTED and DIL BOLE HADIPPA, opened to mixed houses. WANTED opened to a fabulous response at single screens. The opening was 90% + at places. But the response at multiplexes was around 40% - 50%, though the business showed an increase during evening shows. The reports are positive, with the masses loving the film.

DIL BOLE HADIPPA had an approx. 50% to 60% start at plexes, but was weak at single screens. The reports are not too encouraging and it remains to be seen how strongly it holds in the forthcoming days.

Looking at Salman's popularity, WANTED is expected to show a big jump once Idd festivities begin.
