Come december, Rohit Shetty’s Diwale featuring SRK, Kajol, Varun Dhawan, Kriti Sanon and Varun Sharma will be unleashed upon us in cinemas all around us. Undoubtedly one of the more anticipated Hindi films of 2015, we present to you some exclusive stills from a recent shoot of the film.
Farah Khan’s latest venture, Happy New Year, is out in theaters this weekend. And even if you are a plonked outcast lying in some run down part of any city in India, or a swanky tycoon flying around the world for business, you would have come across the obnoxiously omnipresent promotional wave of HNY. Much thanks to Farah’s unapologetic muse and the producer of the film, Shah Rukh Khan, and his army of men who have made sure that HNY becomes a household name, even before its release. The first promo did not create the waves SRK or Farah may have expected it to and neither did the subsequent songs, clumsily painting a lopsided picture of HNY. However, this did not stop their team to serenade all our senses with overdoses of publicity for HNY, so much so that it cooked a pretty smashing buzz for the film, whether good or bad, right before its release. Post Tees Maar Khan, has Farah been able to resurrect herself?Continue reading “Happy New Year Movie Review: Nonsense Done Right”
This movie was fun. Guys, wait. Before you start throwing oranges, and bananas, and eggs at me, let me brief it up. I did not like its occasionally serious use of clichés. I did not like its sappy melodrama, and I did not, for the life of me, liked a good part of the song and dance sequences. Parts of them were quite a spectacle, sure, but mostly songs and dances in a movie requiring dance sequences were bland and, unnecessary, at most, and hindering, at-least.Continue reading “Happy New Year Movie Review: Steal-Deal”
Marathi cinema is experiencing interesting times, on the one hand we have directors like Sujay Dahake, Nagraj Manjule pushing envelope of Marathi cinema, while on the other hand we have directors like Sanjay Jadhav sticking to formula films inspired by Bollywood.
Pyaar Vali Love story is set in 1992, informs the title card of the film. Though the film is set in Bombay, you never find Bombay in the film. So we have two chawls, one in which we have Hindus staying and the other Chawl in which Muslims stay, but the bond between these two chawls is of love and brotherhood. They watch cricket together, beat up Hindu Right wingers together etc. We have Pashya (Sameer DharamAdhikari) and terribly miscast Kader (Upendra Limaye) who are like Dharam Veer. Enter Amar (Swapnil Joshi) the younger brother of Pashya who falls in love with Aaliya (Sai Tamhankar). The rest of the film is about how these two lovers unite.Continue reading “Pyaar Vali Love Story (2014): Marathi Movie Review”
That all eyes have been focusing on Farah Khan’s Happy New Year is no exaggeration by any standard. After all be it her back to back successes with Main Hoon Na and Om Shanti Om, both with Shah Rukh Khan, her first failure in the form of Tees Maar Khan, her subsequent fall out and later patch up with SRK, Farah and her movies have always been in the news. Needless to say it was but natural that people would be curious to know if Happy New Year could bring Farah Khan back to form and if her combination with SRK would turn out to be successful once again. And going by all the buzz right from the release of the first look posters, to the teaser, songs and the trailer, there was no doubt that Happy New Year (or HNY from hereon) would be closely scrutinized as the team geared up for a grand Diwali release.Continue reading “Happy New Year Movie Review: Get Ready for the Party Folks”
