Ae Dil Hai Mushkil: A Quick Review

And thankfully there are no uncles, aunts, bhangra songs or sunflower fields!!!Continue reading “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil: A Quick Review”

The Legend of Tarzan: A Quick Review

The Legend of Tarzan Poster 2This movie on Tarzan begins where most movies on him would end – in the city. Tarzan (Alexandaer Skarsgard) is already in the city as John Clayton- Earl of Greystoke, a brooding and reserved man with his Jane (Margot Robbie). Captain Leon Rom (Christoph Waltz) wants to lure him back to Congo where he can hand him over to Mbonga (king of savages) in exchange for the precious diamonds of Opar. He is well supported by George Washington Williams (Samuel Jackson) who is his assistant to unravel the treacherous plan of King Leopold.Continue reading “The Legend of Tarzan: A Quick Review”

Raman Raghav 2.0: A Quick Review

Raman-Raghav-2.0-Movie-First-Look-Posters-1Raman Raghav is a typical Anurag Kashyap film- a moving hand held camera, dark alleys, haunting music, gore, expletives and drug abuse. It is based on the real life story of a serial killer  with the same name who once haunted Mumbai. However the resemblance stops at that.Continue reading “Raman Raghav 2.0: A Quick Review”

U Turn: A Quick Review

U Turn Poster 3Suspense movies need a very acute sense of film-making acumen. Not only does it need a good story and direction, but also a sustained effort in keeping the audience engaged continuously, changing the plot and ‘whodunnit’ angle and finally revealing the plot at the right time.

Pawan Kumar managed this almost to near perfection in his debut film ‘Lucia’ that also made for a strong case study in crowd-funding and crowd-distributing a movie. Sadly, his next Kannada language films falls short of expectations in many counts. Though, to his credit he starts of very well and navigates the twists and turns effectively in the first half.

The Hateful Eight: A Quick Review

The Hateful EightIf ever a camera was the hero in a movie, then this is it! The ‘antique’ Ultra Panavision 70mm  camera used by Quentin Tarantino in ‘ Hateful Eight’ and last used in 1966, has created ripples not just in the film industry, but also does so in the hearts of the audience. If ever there was a poetic opening scene with a cinematography to match for, then this is it. If ever the music score in the beginning hauntingly tells you what to expect in the end, then this is it!Continue reading “The Hateful Eight: A Quick Review”

The Different Shades Of Irrfan Khan

Actor Irrfan Khan ​who turned 49 ​years old recently​, has gone through some major transformations on his looks for different films. The actor has not let his versatility limited to his acting, he has appeared in various different roles in different looks, making it look more real and natural.

Irrfan Khan colleage

Lets take a look at Irrfan’s some major roles for which he transformed his look:

The Warrior

Irrfan did a major transformation on his looks for his British-Indian film – The Warrior. He played the role of a warrior in feudal Rajasthan who attempts to give up his sword.​The actor grew long hair, dust-stuck face, and ​wore ​a warrior outfit in the entire film.

Qissa

Irrfan played a Sikh Man ‘Umber Singh’ in Qissa, the film was set in the 1947’s partition backdrop. Irrfan ​played the role of a stubborn Punjabi man who wants a son to carry forward his legacy of a strong hunter. ​Irrfan carried the look to its authenticity. He made his character come real with his efforts and attire.

Talvar

The actor played an investigating CBI Officer solving a mysterious murder case in the film. He played the character so intriguingly not just by the way he acted but also by his looks. He actor donned shades in the entire film. His look was quite different and added to his character in the film. Apparently the actor liked his shades so much that he asked the makers if he could keep with him.

Paan Singh Tomar

In this biopic, Irffan played an athlete who later turns a dacoit, both his looks were special and the efforts he put for his looks were visible in the film. Irrfan’s body looked that of an athlete in the first half in the latter he was seen wearing a Khakee outfit and carrying arms as a dacoit. 

The Lunchbox

Irrfan played the role of an about to retire, widower man, older than his real age in this film. He had put on some greys to go with his acting of an older man. Irrfan played the character to its best. Definitely proving that the actor is capable of pulling off any role. 

Bollywood Actors Who Could Star In Chhota Bheem Himalayan Adventure

The makers of Chhota Bheem have just released Chhota Bheem Himalayan Adventure and the animated characters and their antics continue to be loved immensely by kids. If the film would have starred Bollywood celebs, we feel the following actors would have done full justice to the epic characters:

Chhota Bheem 1

Chhota Bheem : We feel that Bollywood’s Bhaijaan Salman Khan will be the apt choice to play the role of Chhota Bheem, thanks to his drool-worthy muscles and philanthropic ways. Salman is a mastikhor with a heart of gold just like Chhota Bheem and his Dabangg persona will make the enemies run away. Chhota Bheem 2

Chutki : We feel that the current reigning queen of Bollywood, Deepika Padukone will be perfect to play the role of Chutki as she has the right amount of spunk and her dimples make her look as cute as the female protagonist of the popular cartoon series.
Chhota Bheem 3Indumati : Indumati is the princess of Dholkapur and we believe that Bollywood’s quintessential fashionista Sonam Kapoor, who played a royalty in her last release Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, will be the perfect choice for the role.
Chhota Bheem 4
Dholu-Bholu : Kalia’s chelas Dholu-Bholu never fail to tickle our funny bone with their silly antics. We believe that the two on-screen brothers – Ramesh and Suresh, who feature in the ad series of a popular chocolate brand, will be able to pull of the role easily.
Chhota Bheem 5
Hidimbak: As the antagonist of the upcoming film Chhota Bheem Himalayan Adventure is the powerful Hidimbak, we think that given his gigantic physique and ability to cake walk through fights, WWE champ Khali will be able to play the role with utmost ease.Chhota Bheem 6
Kalia : With his quirky humour and evil demeanour, Ganesh Acharya can step into bully Kalia’s shoes quite comfortably.
Produced by Rajiv Chilaka and Samir Jain under their banner Green Gold Pictures, the film has been directed by Rajiv Chilaka and Rusauro B. Adorable and is currently playing in theatres across India.
