Tabu is Back...Updated with 'Toh Baat Pakki' Trailer

The talented actress will be seen in a Bollywood comedy releasing on Feb 19

It’s time to uncork the bubbly. Twotime National Award-winning actress Tabu, who’s been sorely missed by discerning cineastes, will be back on the silver screen on February 19 in producer Ramesh Taurani’s Toh Baat Pakki.
Says Ramesh, “The film is a slice-of-life comedy in the genre made by Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Basu Chatterjee.’’
The first look of the film will unfold across satellite channels today, January 17, 2010, and the excitement around the project can be felt. TBP is directed by the talented Marathi film writer-director, Kedar Shinde, who had stormed the Marathi box office with Agabai Arrechya, Jatra, Majha Navra Tujhi Baiko and Galgale Nighale. About his Bollywood debut, Kedar says, “I’m grateful to Ramesh Taurani for giving me Tabu in my very first film. She’s hugely talented; and what’s more – she’s a very humble person. I just
loved wo rk - ing with her.’’
The actress herself says that she only green-lighted this project because her producers, Tips Films, categorically told her that if she wasn’t in the film, they would not make it. “It’s very flattering for an actor to hear that,’’ says Tabu, adding, “I agreed to this film because I haven’t done a comedy for a while. And, everything about Toh Baat Pakki felt right. My role and the script are fantastic, like it was in Biwi No 1.’’
Tabu has also done comic capers like Hera Pheri and Chachi 420, but she says, “While these films were cult classics, my roles were not necessarily funny in both films. However, in TBP, I’ve got something that I wanted.’’
Kedar, according to her, has made a sensible comedy. “There’s nothing outlandish or over-the-top here.’’ She also feels that since Kedar has a stage background, he is able to control performances and works around things like a pro.
Of her two co-stars, she feels Sharman Joshi is super talented, very committed and a fab costar. Vatsal Sheth is a kid, always up to pranks, but she loved the energy he brought on the sets.
So look at Toh Baat Pakki any which way… and it looks poised to be a winner.

I saw the promo on TV, Tabu as always was looking fabulous and the film seemed to have some twists that made it interesting.

Man, bad bad bad trailer.
This is looking like so bad movie, like one of those Tabu-Govinda-Juhi comedy movie..... Amdani Athanni somthing, and even more pathetic is the fact that I know the name of the movie.
