Kambakkht Ishq promises to put all its actresses in bikinis to match the high testosterone count in the movie.
Remember, its got Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sly Stallone, Brandon Routh, and Akshay Kumar?
The Kambakkht Ishq bikini babes Kareena Kapoor, Denise Richards, and Amrita Arora are supposed to be extremely stylish supermodels in the movie.
Aki Narula will design Kareena’ clothes, Shabina Khan will design Denise Richards’ outfits, while Ashley Rebello will style Amrita Arora’s clothes, reports say.
Kareena Kapoor is said to be doing an underwater bikini scene in Kambakkht Ishq. There was a lot of brouhaha when she wore a bikini in Tashan, which is now being repeated with Kambakkht Ishq.
But this time, Kareena will be a little more curvaceous. Apparently, she has been asked to put on weight, so she will not look rail thin as she did in Tashan.
And what Kareena does, her bosom buddy Amrita Arora does too. She says she has worked hard on a bikini body, but from her pictures she does not look cadaverous or starved, which is a relief.
I suspect Kambakkht Ishq is peppered with bikinis to make up for the lack of a storyline. The movie peddles the done-to-death battle of the sexes.
Kambakkht Ishq is about an Indian stuntman (Akshay Kumar) and a supermodel (Kareena Kapoor), who hate each others guts. He is a casanova and she is a prim little miss who thinks that men are only interested in sex.
A look at the promo is enough to convince me that this movie will be a complete waste of the tons of money poured into it.
The movie is supposed to be funny but if the lines in the promo are anything to go by, Kambakkht Ishq is going to be boring as hell.
Sample this. “What do you know about stuntmen, huh?” our hero asks. “Second-hand people with second-hand lives,” she retorts. If this the level of their banter, I will gladly give the movie a miss.
And, what’s with the sword-fighting scene, a direct copy of the absolutely sensuous scene from Joddha Akbar? It makes no sense whatsoever.
The tag lines of Kambakkht Ishq in the promo, say Hollywood Meets Bollywood, and A Perfect Love Story…..That Wasn’t.
My problem is why on earth did the bickering duo have to be in Hollywood? He can be a stuntman here, she can be a supermodel here; why drag in a poor Sylvester Stallone who looks as though he has no clue why he is there?
The only funny line in the promo- albeit unintentionally – is Sylvester Stallone ferociously nodding his head and spitting out “Kambakkht Ishq.”
But since the movie insists on being a mating between Bollywood and Hollywood, it has been shot entirely in Los Angeles, California, and Universal Studios.
The promo of Kambakkht Ishq was revealed during the screening of Aa Dekhen Zara, which released on March 27, 2009.
Kambakkht Ishq has been produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and helmed by first-time director Sabbir Khan. The script has been written by Sabbir Khan and Ishita Moitra.
Sabbir Khan was the Assistant Director in hits like Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya? and Mujhse Shaadi Karogi.
Akshay Kumar’s last movie Chandni Chowk to China was his biggest flop after nearly seven back-to-back hits, the last one being the blockbuster Singh is Kinng.
He will be seen next in Nagesh Kukunoor’s Tasveer 8×10 and Blue.
