What a wonderful era will are living in to see movies like this in glorious rich colours on the big screen, Fantastic photography of Prague and Maldives and the London Gherkin and Shimla. The stunts are out of this world . My favourite is Katrina holding on to that dolphin like tube underwater , certainly a fast way to swim! Photography is pin sharp. Dont read the mad Jyotish negative postings , go and watch this on the big screen. Pity they didnt subtiltle the songs , the best part of Bollywood. Story is about a guy who steals the Kohinoor diamond (every kingdom that had it lost out , the Mughals , Sikhs , Brits, so there is a pettition to give it to Pakistan!
How Hrithik-Katrina's Bang Bang Turned Into 140 Cr Affair – The Lowdown It is now confirmed, and comes straight from the horse's mouth. Fox Star Studios has produced Bang Bang for a whopping budget of 140 crore (including Prints & Advertising) hence giving it the status of one of the costliest films ever made in Bollywood.
Here is the complete lowdown of what contributed to it, and whether a lesser cost would have at all been justified.
Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif in a still from movie 'Bang Bang'
- Bang Bang has Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif, two of the biggest superstars of the country, in the lead. No prizes for guessing that they are also two of the highest paid actors in the country. A good chunk of moolah goes there.
- From Day One, the USP of some never-seen-before action is being widely spoken about in not just the industry circles but also audiences. A promise has been made that Bollywood would witness something unique. Assurance comes from the fact that Hollywood action director Andy Armstrong (The Amazing Spiderman 2) was roped in to deliver these breath-taking, death-defying stunts. Creating this spectacle definitely needed the best crew in the business or else it would all have looked shoddy. Some of the notable action sequences involved Hrithik driving a F1 car, perform water-ski after being tied to a sea-plane and do the fly board stunts. While such sequences are a first for any Bollywood star, needless to say that the cost incurred on it is huge as well. Of course from the perspective of helping the film gain good eye balls, the job is done, what with the visuals being enticing enough for a big screen extravaganza.
- The very genre of the film, which is that of being an adventure affair. With action-romance thrown in for good measure, the stars were required to travel across the world so as to join the dots and solve a mystery which forms the core of Bang Bang! The story travels through Prague, US, Thailand and Greece amongst other countries and the idea was to keep a non-compromising approach on the scale of the film while giving the story its due.
- With big vision comes bigger risk – the adage couldn't have been truer here! DirectorSiddharth Anand wanted to create something larger-than-life and the producers too stuck their necks out to help him achieve that. The film was accordingly granted its mammoth budget.
Says an insider, "Bang Bang is now the hottest film of 2014, a must watch
