Spoof spoof hota hai
* Dhoondte Reh Jaaoge trailer
Sonu Sood does a nostril-flaring impression of Veeru (Sholay) while Soha Ali Khan as Basanti, is ordered to dance by Johnny Gabbar Singh Lever. Of course Veeru yells that she can’t dance for the dogs. An obedient Gabbar chases off a pack of dogs from the scene. Funny! There are several other promos, with Paresh Rawal trying to hang himself and Kunal Kemmu with a horrific Afro hairdo. Interesting!

Three stooges
* Kisse Pyaar Karoon teaser
An imbecile Ashish Chowdhry sits by the pool. Arshad Warsi and Yash Tonnk urge him to look water-ward at Udita Goswami. Cut to Warsi swaying to some ‘Aaaahoooo’ number with Shweta Menon. Then Chowdhary, Warsi and Tonnk congratulate each other on having finally passed out of college. Last shot: Goswami asks Chowdhry to “Just F O”. Our feelings exactly.

Snap to the future
* Aa Dekhen Zara promo
A DJ (Bipasha Basu) doesn’t mix too much music. Instead, she shakes her booty on the dance floor. A photographer (Neil Nitin Mukesh) doesn’t go snap happy but stares and stares and stares at his camera. Why, asks DJ. Apparently, the camera can look into the future. Really, now!

Five years later
* Desperate Housewives Season Five teaser, Star World
The five hot women of Wisteria Lane are back in all their glory. Here’s another season of scuffles on the lawn, well-hidden explosive secrets (which are eventually revealed) and raunchy affairs. Only this time, the show has taken a five-year leap. Of course they all look just as fabulous in blood-red dresses and even redder lips. And to think we always taunted poor old Baa.

Four ka dum
* Specials at 10 promo, Sony TV
The aam janta on the streets speculates on this show: there will be blood.. says a cabbie. And emotion too, points out another. “Will hearts break?” asks a gangster sadly. His boss nods, “Maybe a few heads too.” Cut to a studio with four directors (Vikram Bhatt, Anurag Kashyap, Madhur Bhandarkar and Mahesh Manjrekar) in sombre black, who promise a good show. I’d like to believe them.
