A good friend, Fight Club, whose gossips are mostly true, swears that Nikhat Kazmi has been given a hush-hush screening for UTV’s Raajneeti. And she has promised to give it a FOUR star rating in her review.
Personally, I don’t give a damn about her rating, I think she writes thrash. But the fact is that she writes for TOI, one of the leading newspapers of India. A good rating in TOI augurs well for the movie’s box office performance.
As pointed out by Fight Club, Nikhat Kazmi was also the author of the notorious Bombay Times review for Kurbaan, which was distributed by UTV. Notice UTV appearing again? And what’s more, she personally gave me the shock of my life by giving a whopping 5 star rating for Anurag Kashyap’s DevD. Guess who the producers of DevD are? Yup…UTV.
Btw, here’s an old rant of mine regarding Nikhat Kazmi’s review of Anurag Kashyap’s No Smoking.
