P.S. – Outsiders Not Allowed
No one says it as openly and bluntly as K Jo’s recent film by the same name about the growing nepotism in the Hindi film industry. Or may I say a much legitimized nexus between the film families and the production houses. It pretty much goes without saying that over the last decade our film industry has become an old boys club where your surname and belonging to a film family is more important than your creative merit. In fact if statistics are to be believed, it’s perhaps the ONLY thing that matters.
A lot of us would certainly remember Total Recall a Hollywood Sci-Fi action film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger ( 1990 ) and directed by Paul Verhoeven. Based on the 1966 short story, We Can Remember It For You Wholesale by Philip K.Dick, the film certainly was considered a bit ahead of its times. In spite of it the film was a commercial success and rated reasonably well by critics as well. Coming up now is a totally revitalized remake by the same name, Total Recall. Directed by Len Wiseman, the remake stars Colin Farell as Douglas Quaid.
The film’s star cast also includes Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale, Bryan Cranston etc. Total Recall is slated for release in the U.S on 3rd August, 2012. Check out the trailer of the film which does look promising indeed-
