Ta Ra Rum Pum
Directed by: Siddharth Anand
Produced by: Aditya Chopra
Cast: Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukerji
I went to Yash Raj Films’s website, and saw this new flick’s promo coming up. Ta Ra Rum Pum is the name, directed by Siddharth Anand of Salaam Namaste fame. With Saif and Rani at the star cast, I expected it to be another of those Yash Raj films with same old love stories, but then the trailer somewhat shocked me. They had a story of Saif as a NASCAR racer!!! I mean who in India knows about NASCAR leave alone watching it? And what made Yash Raj/Siddharth Anand think that this should be a life story of a racer? Seriously I’m out of thoughts here. The trailer gives me the impression that its a happy family, with great things happening, and then Saif has a big racing accident, which makes his family think that he should give up racing. Then the same old fights and melodrama, and then things get better again. Well this is what I felt after looking the trailer. One can only tell after the movie comes out. Overall the NASCAR shots were looking great in the trailer, although one scene was hard to digest, the scene in which they showed a car ramming into the car and kaboom!…a blast! I’ve never seen a “blast” in a NASCAR event, dunno if it does happen. The music was good in the trailer. The movie since based on a NASCAR racer, is of course shot and based in the USA. So lets see what Sid Anand shows us this time, I loved his last movie Salaam Namaste very much, and it is in my list of favorite movies.
The movie is slated for a 27 April 2007 release.
The trailer can be viewed on the official movie site.
