Can Veena Malik get as ‘dirty’ as Vidya Balan?

The Pakistani “actress” Veena Malik, who has arguably done more for people-to-people contact with Pakistan than all the mavens of the ministry of external affairs put together, arrives for a press conference to announce the launch of her debut Kannada film Dirty, in Bangalore on Friday (top). Below, Malik is welcomed with a bagina.

    This was the only pending thing!! Sunny leone dances to a song in Prem movie and we have Veena Mallik playing the lead role for remake of DIrty picture!
    where are the people who were crying for bashe, samskruthi , blah blah when audience asked for dubbing..
    Can they put a ban on such dirty gimmicks?

  2. BangaloreBaba Says:

    Heh – import of Paki women. Whatever next.

    But frankly speaking, Veena Malik is one of the Pakis I wouldn’t mind having here. She sticks it into the eyes of the mullahs in her home country really well. Good for her.

    We need to take all the pretty Paki ladies and give them chances in Bollywood/Kollywood/Tollywood/Mollywood/*wood. Give the mullahs something more to rave about, I say.

  3. Nastika Says:

    ‘The Dirty Picture’ in Hindi doesn’t suit Kannada culture. So KFI is ‘Kannadizing’ the screenplay & script, so that Kannada culture is depicted correctly in the movie.

    For a change, this time, instead of providing employment to non-Kannada actors, they are giving job to a non-Indian !

    ~*~, in next couple of years, KFI will be proud to get Sunny Leon in the Kannada remake of ‘Murder’ and unlike the Hindi version, Kannada one will correctly uphold Kannada culture & heritage.

    Bigger coup than this, CHRIS GAYLE releasing audio of a Kannada movie and trying to speak a few words in Kannada in his trademark calypso baritone. Kannada movies –going places, bengaluru-mysuru-port of spain-rawalpindi.
    Kannada movie lovers would wish that INSTEAD OF TRICKS AND GIMMICKS, DIRECTORS AND PRODUCERS concentrate more on the real stuff——story and screenplay.
    IPL has a good story,
    Team bosses associated with DONS in Dubai, Mauritius and beaches of CAYMAN ISLANDS.
    Vulvouptous blondes with betting Mafia, late night parties with DIRTY CABARET AND DRUGS,
    ED AND CBI, RAW AGENTS on the prowl in bond style, cricket players on drugs door crashing into beautiful heroines and stalking, finally a hero stands up bashes up IPL BOSSES, fasts with people and THE END.

  5. BangaloreBaba Says:

    Dr. Ramesappa saar, don’t you think this is a sinister ploy by KFI to amalgamate Kanndaga culture and Paki culture?

    Tomorrow KFI will gift us PakAdiga culture, and we may be privileged to see Shivrajkumar with a fist length beard and white topi, with a laang tucked into his underwear. Our Ramya clad in Burkha kidnapped by Kalasaipalya rowdies, and Shivrajkumar pursuing them in KA02 number plate auto rickshaw screaming Allah-O-Akbar in loud voice.

    And the movie will have special effects. Suddenly the sky will be clouded by the Paki national bird – i.e. American predator drone. As the drone will leave its bird droppings (hellfire missiles) all over Kalasipaliya, Shivrajkumar and Burkha-clad Ramya will be miraculously left unscathed amidst the destruction all around.

    The movie will have its share of sensual scenes, with Ramya’s ankles and fingers being visible out of the Burkha. Truly, this cultural amalgamation of Kannada and Paki culture will be worth watching!!!

  6. dr ramesh Says:

    What’s wrong in karnataka and Iran or karnataka and Pakistan cultural exchange, if kannadigas can tolerate Tamil , Telugu and Hindi B GRADE movies, nothing should be worse.
    Kannada movies are doing well, good talk about forthcoming movies—– Shiva starring shivanna, janoo starring yash.
    SATYAMEVA JAYATE has been declared a damp squib. No star should think of making Mega bucks showing a woman who has undergone forceful abortions due to criminal acts of some people. There are better and correct ways to make money.

  7. rama Says:

    aye ramesaaa, why does KFI need Veena Malik, Meera Jasmine? dont you have enough girls in Kannada. dont you think casting ‘outsiders’ deprises livelyhood of many Kannada sisters?

  8. jayashree Says:

    Does all this matter? Churmuri, you are gradually becoming as DIRTY as Vidya! Great journalism.

  9. Doddi Buddi Says:

    Dr Ramesh,
    Ultimate coup would be Kumaranna doing some sowing of his wild ragi (substitute wild oats) and hey presto we will have Veena M and Surya Simhini (Sunny Leone) campaigning for Jathi Dala Sangha?!!

    Veena Malik in Kannada cinema? Thats the kind of Aman ki Asha I am talking about!

    Check rest here:

    When Suri & Puneet themselves know the ‘level’ of Anna Bond, I don’t get it why your are super-excited on mediocre stuff.

    Plenty of good-will was generated for Puneet from ‘Kannada Kotyadipathi’ and could be seen from the diverse group coming to the theatres. I wish Prithvi or Arasu or even Akash was released instead of Anna Bond so that new Puneet fans weren’t disappointed. I am not sure any of those folks would watch a movie again.

    Regarding, Satyameva Jayathe, probably you must listen to Aamir Khan when he tells why he is doing the show. As far as I comprehend, Satyameva Jayathe isn’t for entertainment.


  12. dr ramesh Says:

    Going by the trend, popularity and quality of Kannada movies, I wouldn’t be surprised if top Hollywood heroines and models start queuing up to act with golden star, challenging star,crazy star,real star, diamond star,sizzling star and biggest of them all phenomenal star.
    If the Kannada movie with Pakistani actress gets released in Pakistan with subtitles, Kannada movies will find a new unexplored market, this is great news when, KANNADA FILMS ARE NOT RELEASED IN MULBAGAL, SIRSI, KGF, KUNDAPUR, CHIKBALLAPURA etc.
    oh ho DODDI BUDDI— kumaranna is in a league of his own, league of extra ordinary gentlemen.
    somehow even opposition party MLAs ,detractors can’t stop GOING GA GA ABOUT HIM.
    Even today he is the most popular mass leader of his generation.
    RAMA—for every meera or veena from other language, hundreds of Kannada technicians and Co actors work in a movie. Some good, some bad——more than 125 movie were made in KFI,one of the highest in the country. Dubbing comes,production rate will dip and WANNABE ACTORS AND ASPIRING DIRECTORS AND TECHNICIANS WILL HAVE NO CHANCE.

  19. dr ramesh Says:

    Pulikeshi, I am very sure and serious when I speak about DR RAJ and his glorious legacy and devegowda and his astonishing achievements which includes HDK.
    I want to share a personal experience, I had the honour of meeting HDK YEAR BACK, he was reading MASTI VENKATESH IYENGAR’S CLASSIC, CHIKAVEERARAJENDRA and had scores of Kannada books were around him. This was another interesting facet of HDK. He is an avid follwer of Kannada literature and has imbibed Kannada ethos, WHICH IS SADLY MISSING IN BJP,RSS AND CONGRESSMEN.
    This convinced me, kumaraswamy is the best of the political lot, he deserves, and will get the oppurtunity to govern karnataka.

    Don’t worry I was only silencing Dr. Ramesappa’s endorsement of bad Kannada movies. On HDK and Jathi Dala Sangha I have nothing to offer! LOL

  22. BangaloreBaba Says:

    Dr. Ramesappa saar – I have a better idea. All of us pro-dubbing lobby should all be forced to spend one week with Devegowda and Kumaraswamy watching their antics. That will be worse punishment than spending time in a concentration camp. If you can arrange that, we will all be too frightened to speak out in favour of dubbing.

  23. dr ramesh Says:

    Look, if u say something is bad, u shud have an idea of what is good.
    ANNABOND —- suri is a super director with his signature style of telling a story with a series of interesting, abnormal, sometimes crude incidents. Its not linear narrative.some people may not like it but box office collections shows thAt its a block buster.
    Now, few months back 2 TELUGU MOVIES WERE RELEASED IN KARNATAKA — DOOKUDU AND BUSINESSMAN, many kannadigas watched it ( some pro -DUBBING techie kannadigas and real estate kannadigas went to theatre with towel covered faces) ,Kannada media saluted the movie,
    Reality is they were not even half as good as ANNA BOND or PARAMATMA or AK 56.
    DON 2——ambreesh had done such action flicks 30 years back with great style,
    DHAMMU, GOBBRA SINGH —– extremely constipated, urgently laxative needed films, some elite kannadigas even today shower praises on them.

    I am a staunch supporter of Kannada movies and a great fan of annavaru…but the movies of his kids leave a lot to be desired and are no match for the quality movies that annavaru produced and acted in….so take it easy on anna is a rehash of a bunch of hollywood movies…most of it is taken from the ghost rider movie of nicholas cage….if there is really a good kannada movie let us all support it but at the same time let us not try to match the trashy films from neighboring states with trash produced here in KFI….like the saying goes “He is a bastard alright but he is OUR bastard” should not be mentality

  26. Doddi Buddi Says:

    So Dr. Ramesappa, what you are saying is Suri makes films for abnormal people like you? Thank you. I liked your brilliant defence on Anna-Bond. There is no Anna and there is no Bond. Rather than admitting this is a moronic movie you claim this is box office success! ree nimma ee balisha arguments bittu swalpa reality-ge banni.

    Lets take a poll here: whoever thinks Anna-Bond is a good movie please let us know why you think so. Thanks.

  27. Doddi Buddi Says:

    Ree Dr. Ramesappa,
    HDK was found reading Chikaveera Rajendra by Masti is fine. However I doubt it if he even finished that book after he realized Kodagu was once ruled by Lingayat Kings:) Pray tell us what other Kannada books were lying about when you met him. You seem to be a very simple person easily fooled by appearances.

    BTW how do you know other politicians don’t read Kannada Lit? For instance Vishwanath MP from Congress is a very witty person. He is streets ahead of ‘grama vasthavya’ morons like HDK. He recently said, “Devegowda should never attend a wedding and Sadananda Gowda should never attend a funeral!” work this out if you can:)
    Likewise there are many stalwarts in BJP. For instance Mukyamantri Chandru.

    Swalpa burude bidodhu kammi maadi swalpa yochane maadi. You will know how infantile your observations are and how easily you have been fooled all your life. Thanks.

  28. Pulikeshi the Last Says:

    Dr. Ramesappa–

    What caused HIs Mightiness Kumaraswamy H. Gowda to grant you a darshana? Did you see his sire also? Is it true that HDK was holding the book you say he was reading upside down?
    Why don’t you ever confer plaudits on that Veera Manthri, Shri Revannappa? And HDK is a product HDD’s “astonishing achievment?” Keep telling us about this royal family of Karnatka regardless of the topic discussed in this space. Kumara is our Hakka and Revanna Bukka. Thaavu avara rajagurugalu. Nimmellarige nanna humble Kannadiga pranaama.

  29. Simple_gowda Says:

    Dr ramesh,
    I am with you! You talk ANNA bond or Kumar ANAA. unfortunately Kumar anna mismanaged himself. He’s no longer the same Kumar anna we adored and the masses followed. He could have been the Dr rajkumar of karnataka politics. shit. Its kannadigas misfortune.
    But still i can only say he made it well as CM and deserves all accolades. Dynamism and activism personified.
    This ANNA Bond Puneeth is one guy who has manged his career spectacularly well. The movie Anna Bond stands on par with the best in the country when it comes to technical excellence. No doubt. They have made us proud !!
    Some guys just wanna stamp out everything as kannada movie and mediocre. phew on them.
    Paramathma, anna Bond, Pancharangi, Manasare, matte banni preethisona, super … .they were all way way better than acrobatics of telugu, crudeness of tamil or lewdness of hindi.
    Proud kannadiga.

  30. dr ramesh Says:

    Guys, I am simple, tax paying, inflation hit, son of soil type, dentist. No personal gain in expressing views supporting HDK or ANNA BOND. Its my honest take on these issues.
    As a regular Kannada cinema viewer ( theatres ) from decades, with special preference to Dr.Raj banner and puneeth movies, I definitely see a positive growth both in terms of quantity and technical brilliance.
    One more case study,
    Year and half back, puneeth acted in a movie called PRITHVI, this movie very subtly yet effectively showed THE EVIL MINING MAFIA in karnataka, was even discussed in Parliament. Puneeth showed great guts in accepting the movie then acting splendidly. A MOVIE SHOULD ENTERTAIN AND IF POSSIBLE EDUCATE, prithvi did both. But so called elite kannadigas never watched it and passed judgement that it was not good and watched MAHESH BABU, SALMAN KHAN and RAJANIKANTH.
    Now the same pseudo class want to get educated by watching amirkhan, Surya and others in dubbed Kannada movies, what double standards?
    Karnataka even today lacks a strong, son of soil , regional satrap like politician with pro people, pro Kannada ideology and I feel HDK CAN BECOME ONE.

    @dr ramesh,
    I am your elite Kannadiga, since I am pro-dubbing and didn’t like Anna Bond. But I watched Prithvi twice in theatre and again when it was on TV. I consider it as one of the best works of Puneet & suggested people I know to watch it.

    By ‘elite’ probably you meant KFI folks. Yes KFI folks won’t like Prithivi since,
    – its not remake
    – its not machu, longu story
    – and they will watch Mahesh Babu, Salman Khan & Rajnikath to lift next story.

    @dr ramesh,
    Are you sure HDK was with some Kannada literature? Anyway I felt HDK is pondering to promote his 1st wife as MP (and pack her off to Delhi) and get himself an another wife.

    Some random thoughts:
    Would Veena speak her own lines or would her lines in the movie be dubbed by someone else? If someone else dubs her lines then she might cause a truce between pro and anti dubbing groups.

    Like every other film industry KFI too has its share of good and bad movies. There is no point in blindly eulogizing or demonizing everything. Movies that worked with audiences had a decent storyline and good music. It is true now as it was in past decades.

  37. Shivaprakash Says:

    Dr. Ramesh,
    I am talking about the quality of films made by the sons of Annavru, and am not comparing them with either the films of Annavru or the Telugu, Tamil or Hindi movies. Annavru had the real guts, quality and integrity to act only in Kannada movies. His joker sons do not have any of these. The quality of films these jokers have acted in is there for everybody to see.

    As you rightly pointed out, the three established themselves in Kannada film industry by their Raj surname. You take surname out, and these buggers are not more than ordinary hobos. Do you think any producer in the right frame of mind would like to cast these chaps in their films, that too as heroes?

    I really really appreciate your staunch pro-Kannada stance. But we need to be aware of the realities too. Just because these three have strong media linkage (by means of their relationship with the Prajavani group) and political backup does not mean that they can say all rowdy stuffs as though they are the guardians of the Kannada culture.

Your asinine defence of that moronic movie Anna Bond is a disgrace and you should do some ‘Athma Awalokana’.

    DB, shivprakash, PTL—- world over best annual success rate of movies is 12-14% according to cinema experts. Kannada movies are in sync. For every bad movie, there is a good movie and slowly but surely Kannada movies are entering the big league.
    a) climax action sequence is the best choreographed action sequence ever in Indian film industry. Puneeth, mood created for the shot, camera angles are scintillating.
    b) suri’s charecterisation. Bond Ravi, chapati babu,singapura chandrappa are lively, realistic, rustic ,unpredictable charecters one may come across in many parts of semi rural and rural India.
    C) mobile home—-sthavarakkalivuntu, jangamakkalivilla — wow
    D) cinematography—– sathya hegde, one of the best in India, muthatti, bheemeswari looks so stunningly different.
    E) costume design in the song KAANADANTE MAYAVAADANO and the way THUMBA NOITADE SONG is conceptualized with vibrant jaathre, santhe theme.

    Without a good story all these stock characters you mention are useless and out of place. Hardly original they have all been resurrected from earlier movies. Climax action sequence you mentioned is laughable! Thaley illa buda illa antharalla hage! All the desperate attempts to recycle an old Rajkumar song is pathetic. There is no connection as to why that song needs to be in the movie. Its purely schizophrenic to analyze this movie! Thumba noitade is a rehash of the good song sequence from Jackie “Yakka Raja,,,”

    Whatever said and done,
    WATCHING ANNABOND, I was reminded of those days, days of Sylvester Stallone, van damme, chuk Norris brand of action flicks. I congratulate PUNEETH AND RAGHAVENDRA for giving a
    Good action movie with a rustic flavor.
    ANNA BOND HAS SUCKER PUNCHED Kannada movie haters and non -Kannada movie glorifiers with real stuff and quality.

  46. Nastika Says:

    Coming back to topic,, check out how KFI has converted Dirty Picture to reflect Kannada culture –

    First thing they did was to change title (to avoid ire of Ekta Kapoor) and came up with the name ‘Silk Sakkath Maga’ – ‘ಸಿಲ್ಕ್ ಸಕ್ಕತ್ ಮಗ’ !

    @dr ramesh,
    there are indeed few funny moments in Anna Bond:
    – Throughout the movie Puneet is searching for Charlie. And when the film is about to end, he just lands at Charlie’s place. If he all long knew Charlie’s address, why was he searching?
    – Probably the director got bored after 2 hours and told Charlie’s location to Punnet :)
    – Nidhi Subbaiah was added to make up the head-count. Since she was paid, she was included in a song. There is no other reason why she is there in the movie.
    – Climax is WWF fight. People got bored of WWF 15 years ago.
    – Villain plays Russian roulette and this went out of fashion in 60s, 70s with bollywood movies.
    – Puneet performs an operation which turns a criminal into a lunatic, which can be believed. But how does he ride a bike without petrol tank?
    – And the mobile home, which has ground clearance of at best 10cm, how does it go off-roading into a forest?

    PS: I can tell many more, sorry I gotto go.

    ನಿಮ್ಮಂಥವರ ಅಸ್ಖಲಿತ ಬೆಂಬಲದಿಂದಲಾದರೂ ಇನ್ನು ಮುಂದೆ ಈ ಕುಮಾರತ್ರಯಗಳು ಹಾಗೂ ಚಿತ್ರರಂಗದ ಮತ್ತಿತರ ಕುಟುಂಬ ಪಾಳೆಯಗಾರರು ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಕನಿಷ್ಠ ಒಳ್ಳೆಯ ಗುಣಮಟ್ಟದ ರೀಮೇಕುಗಳನ್ನಾದರೂ ಮಾಡುವಂಥವರಾಗಲಿ ಅದನ್ನು ನೋಡಿ ಕಣ್ತುಂಬಿಸಿಕೊಂಡು ಕೃತಾರ್ಥರಾಗುವ ಪುಣ್ಯ ನಮ್ಮೆಲ್ಲರದಾಗಲಿ.. ಕನ್ನಡ ನಾಡಿಗೆ ಭಾಷೆಗೆ ಒಳಿತಾಗಲಿ ಎಂದು ಹಾರೈಸುತ್ತಾ.. ಉಘೇ ಉಘೇ ಎನ್ನುತ್ತಾ ಈ ವಿಷಯದಲ್ಲಿ ತಮ್ಮೊಂದಿಗೆ ಚರ್ಚೆ/ವಾಗ್ವಾದ ನಡೆಸುವ ಎಲ್ಲಾ ಉತ್ಸಾಹವೂ ಬತ್ತಿಹೋಗಿರುವುದೆಂದು ತಿಳಿಸುತ್ತಾ ಕುಂ.ವೀರಭದ್ರಪ್ಪನವರ ಶೈಲಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ನನ್ನ ಪಾಲ್ಟನ್ನು ಉಪಸಂಹಾರಗೊಳಿಸುತ್ತಿದ್ದೇನೆ.

    if these according to fellow bloggers are cinematic milestones then renukacharya is a statesman, a political visionary.

    Whoa – this entire thread has become a critique of Anna Bond!

    The basic learning that we should take from this post is to expose the bunkum of KFI that it is trying to “save jobs for mannina makkalu”. Some commentators on churumuri were claiming that “millions of Kannadigas will lose jobs if dubbing is allowed”, and that we should also consider “future Puneeths and Shivrajkumars who might sprout on our land”.

    The KFI trolls come and give us all that lecture on the one hand, and on the other hand they go and recruit Pakis. It shows massive hypocrisy.

    @dr ramesh,
    Any story sets the context and proceeds from there. For instance, Rajnikanth’s Robot set the context about a robot and its capabilities. Then the film goes on from there. Hence you see a cloned robots doing the tricks.
    Anna Bond’s context is present day and the story doesn’t go anywhere.

    Unless you are a ‘Ghazni’ & lose the plot, you will enjoy the tidbits of action, dance, jokes in Anna Bond.

    @dr ramesh,
    From your posts on dubbing, you reveal your gross under-estimation of talent & skills of Kannadigas. But because KFI is unable to tell a good story doesn’t mean that Kannadigas are less-capable.

    Just like Mr Lalit Bhanot feels India has ‘different’ standard of cleaniness, you seem to feel Kannadigas have ‘different’ or lower standards for entertainment. So you want everyone (like you) just consume whatever is dished out by KFI with great aplomb.

    A simple test: Will you recommend a movie to your family or friends (without any malice)? Then thats a good movie. I am not sure if your family or friends would like to watch Anna Bond.

    I had to comment on KFI again, such was the brilliance of the movie.
    Watched ADDHURI — young, talented director, debutant dashing hero, heroine with great acting prowess, super music. The movie was stylish with youthful exuberance. Technically themovie is as good as any Hindi or Telugu movie.
    Kannadigas have given it a thumbs up by making it a roaring success.
    Young director arjun has to be complimented for his talent and confidence for carefully handling a good screenplay. He proves again that cinema is a directors medium.
    Movies like Anna bond, addhuri have made sure that. I don’t loose interest in Kannada movies.
    Great going KFI.
