Rating: 2.5/5 Star Cast: Farhan Akhtar, Annu Kapoor, Kamal Sidhu, Valentina Carnelutti Director: Anand Surapur The Fakir Of Venice Movie Review: Farhan Akhtar |Annu Kapoor | FilmiBeat For those living under the rock, here's a little piece of trivia! The Fakir Of Venice was supposed to be Farhan Akhtar's acting debut. Unfortunately, the film got stuck in the cans due to legal and financial issues and the actor sashayed into Bollywood with the 2008 film Rock On! instead.

(This vintage exploitation gem is also the answer to the question: What movie connects the director of Porky’s, an SCTV alumna, one of 2001‘s astronauts and Lois Lane?) Or that they’ve taken a few key moments from this landmark scary movie — like, say, a murder involving a plastic bag — and ingeniously referenced them in a way that the 2006 cover version of B.C. couldn’t be bothered with. No, the sensation here is that director … [Read more...] about ‘Black Christmas’: A Slasher-Film Remake Updates Its Premise and Strikes Back
