Id biggies

In Bollywood, the long Id weekend begins today with the release of two biggies -- Sanjay Gupta's "Zinda", starring Sanjay Dutt, John Abraham and Lara Dutta, and Rajkumar Santoshi's "Family", featuring Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar and Bhumika. "Zinda" is the most violent movie ever to be censored in India and carries an `A' certificate. Like all previous Sanjay Gupta films, "Zinda" is a carbon copy of a Korean film "Old Boy". "Family -- Ties of blood" is an Indianised version of "Godfather 2 & 3" with Amitabh playing a don and Akshay Kumar playing his archrival.SREEDHAR PILLAI
