In tamilnadu, many theatres have now changed into Marraige halls and Shopping malls and this trend continues till now. The reason for this change is due to the release of pirated VCD's and DVD's when a new film arrives. The distributors and theatre owners say that this brings a big loss for them as people watch movies in home itself when a new film hits the screen. They say around 40% of people don't turn up to the theatre as they watch movie in their home itself. Adding fuel to this fire is that the latest trend of downloading the movie from the net (Like torrents, forums etc). With advancement of technology, can these be stopped.

Accepting the award, the actress said that though she had received scores of awards in her 40-year career in movies, including the National Award, she considered the IMPPA award the most prestigious award as it was being given to her by her own fraternity. 'I always held my producers in high esteem and so I consider the IMPPA award as the most esteemed one I have ever received,' remarked the veteran star. The producers' body honoured Rekha for her 'significant contributions to the film industry'.
IMPPA also similarly honoured director Madhu Bhandarkar and veteran producers Prakash Mehra and Surinder Kapoor (father of Anil Kapoor). Bhushan Kumar of T. Series was given the Producer of the Year award. Kumar's latest movie, 'Karzzz', is releasing next week. Director Bimal Roy, the maker of such memorable movies as 'Do Bigha Zameen', 'Madhumati' and 'Bandini', was honoured posthumously.

The actress plans to use her time productively by spending time with Matilda, 3, and learning a new hobby. 'I want to humble myself. I like how really physical work can free your mind,' she added. Williams wants to star in a lighthearted project after her sabbatical. She said "When I work again, maybe it should be a comedy. I've always had a tendency for darker, more lifelike material. I think I had this sense that important things are heavier things. I don't know if that's true anymore."

In the meantime, she acted in Bengali movie Bhaalo Theko for which she even won the ‘Best Actress’ Anand Lok Puraskar in Kolkata . Vidya had to go through 40 screen tests and 17 make-up shoots before she was finally chosen for the lead role in the film ‘Parineeta’. In this movie she portrayed a simple sari clad woman . She won the hearts of millions in her debut film through her talent and beauty. Even superstar Amitabh Bachchan found her absolutely marvelous and wonderfully natural in the movie. Her latest movie ‘Lage Raho Munnabhai’ is breaking all the records. In this movie she plays a hip radio jockey , which is quite a trasition for her from her sari clad act in Parineeta.
Her talent has fetched her a lot of awards for her debut film ‘Parineeta’. She was awarded with Star Screen Award Most Promising Newcomer , Stardust Superstar of Tomorrow , Filmfare Best Debut Award, Zee Cine Award Best Female Debut, International Indian Film Academy Awards: Best Female Debut for Parineeta. Having won almost all the best debutant awards for “Parineeta”, Vidya got great offers in the form of Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s “Eklavya”, Nikhil Advani’s “Salaame Ishq”, Mani Ratnam’s “Guru”. She has clinched the enviable title of being commercially successful and critically acclaimed. Lady luck is surely on her side since the kind of meaty rolesshe is getting ,female actors have to wait for decades before they can even remotely claim to be both, she sure has lady luck on her side.
Vidya is a hot property in Bollywood. Vidya Balan is one of those rare actresses who haven’t been corrupted by her success. She still enjoys reading books and chilling with friends and family rather than being a filmy type.

Aside from the minor misstep of Drillbit Taylor, Judd Apatow and Co . have been on quite a hot streak. 40 Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up and Superbad reinvigorated the "hard R" comedy genre. Sure, Walk Hard tanked at the box office, but fans still loved it.

The two controversial dialogues are:
You keep on saying you will enter politics, but why are you hesitating? Rajinikanth says, I was just saying a dialogue written by a script writer, in one of my films. What can I do if you treat them as real, do you expect me to enter politics?
And the other
Why are you doing films with heroines half your age?
Both of these questions were asked by Sunderrajan to Rajini

The store is that a superstar Mammooty coming down to the village to save his fan’s love life. Buzz is that a producer has bought the remake rights in Tamil. This time it will be with Vijay as the hero and Rajinikanth is to play the cameo. Reports however did not conform if Rajinikanth has agreed to do another movie just like Kuselan.

Sangeetha is known for her outspoken roles but she is a shy girl in nature. Currently she is acting in the movie Dhanam where she does a sex worker role. In a shooting spot she had to wear a sari in an alluring manner and she felt uncomfortable to act when there was many people watching her. Understand her situation director Kausalya Rani and producer Siva arranged a screen to block all the eyes looking at her. Sangeetha was very thankful from them.

Despite a disjointed and mythology-heavy storyline making it impenetrable for newcomers, the first "X-Files" film ten years ago was still a decent piece of work. Coming off five seasons of brilliantly produced and always entertaining television which cleverly mixed serial sci-fi pathos with stand alone monster stories, the film was cinematic, well-paced, and engaging in all the ways any fan could demand. Yet it also proved a watershed moment as subsequent seasons of the show grew increasingly derivative, convoluted and tedious until it limped off the air six years ago with an unsatisfying finale.
Displaying many of the same problems that plague the most reviled of the odd-numbered "Star Trek" films (Insurrection or Final Frontier - take your pick), this second film plays like one of the weaker standalone episodes of the last few seasons stretched out to feature length. Cheaply shot, discernibly under-written, decently acted, unimaginatively directed, and ultimately pointless - it simply adds nothing to the franchise or characters in any way. When the most memorable moment of the film is a cheap George W. Bush joke, many fans will be shaking their fists with rage that even with six years and a lot of freedom on the filmmakers part - so little visible effort has been put into it.
Deliberately avoiding falling back on the show's mythology where possible (their fugitive status at the end of the series is just briefly dealt with), the story focuses on the setup that a female FBI agent has been kidnapped by a possible serial killer in North Virginia who is leaving body parts strewn around the region. Not only are Mulder and Scully brought in to consult by the new FBI kids on the block, so is a convicted pedophile priest with psychic visions (comedian Billy Connolly in the film's only decent supporting role). In spite of a comically strange twist that would have Mary Shelley rolling in her grave, the main plot adheres to all the banal formulaic hallmarks of a bad Ashley Judd thriller.
This predictable tomfoolery is still better than the secondary storyline dealing with Scully's attempts to save a kid stricken with a terminal illness. As she attempts radical treatment, the priest in charge of the hospital wants to kick him out which of course leads to some unenlightening verbal sparring more suited for a Lifetime Channel movie. Its cloying, redundant, and often awkwardly jammed together with the rest of the film which charges forward with its heavy-handed message of persistence despite the odds. That trite jingoism causes the more interesting topics of the abused becoming the abusers and even the black market in medical trafficking to be barely touched upon.
The blunt metaphor of Mulder and Scully's stubborn quests to save the agent and the kid compensating for the sister and child they respectively lost seems oddly crude for the generally more creative writer/director Chris Carter. It's not helped by the trademark long-winded monologues he gets Mulder and Scully to spout which ponders the usual issue of faith and science co-existing and clashing, though ultimately does little to resolve or even explore the issue.
More damning is the astonishingly flat direction. Carter makes decent use of his wintry outdoor Vancouver locations, but drops the ball on the film's reveals and big moments with uneven editing. Scenes of affection between our characters, always a key moment in the show and first film, are treated with no weight - making it feel almost disrespectful. The kidnapping scene which opens the film would have been tense without all the jarring intercutting.
An action chase through Vancouver streets and abandoned buildings is confusingly shot, as is the almost torture porn style scenes of female victims harassed by men resembling both a Cylon and former New Line chief Bob Shaye. The score is also nicely off-kilter at times, but the film looks decidedly cheaper than its reported $35 million production budget and there's an oddly nasty homophobic streak to it as well that will upset the slash fic writers.
The reunion of David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson is a selling point here and it is good to see them together again, but the chemistry has visibly cooled - the once brooding and then loving energy between the two has gone. Instead we see something more along the lines of a long divorced couple - a touch affectionate, a lot of resentment, and reluctantly adjusted to the fact that they'll never be entirely rid of each other. Duchovny himself often seems bored and never invested in his various scenes.
Anderson on the other hand, though there's a tinge in her voice betraying obvious reluctance to return to a role she has moved on from, is the shining light here and does strong work in spite of her often arduous subplot. Xzibit and Amanda Peet are useless as the FBI agents in charge of the case, both given no personality or character other than serving as expository mouthpieces. Mitch Pileggi as Skinner pops up out of nowhere for ten minutes of the final act, but only to serve as Scully's 'muscle'.
The series remains amongst the most defining and influential genre shows of the past two decades, in spite of ending on a whimper. 'I Want to Believe' doesn't change that assessment - only extending that whimper into a longer and painful howl. It's neither good enough to rekindle interest nor so horrible as to foul memory of the show's strengths which is a shame as even then it would at least encourage opinion and passion about the franchise again. I want to believe they were trying with this, but like the series itself - I felt cheated out of a real answer in the end by this stale, lethargic and massively disappointing footnote.
