Netflix finally arrived in India last week, for the uninitiated Netflix is an OTT content service provider. The prime reason for Netflix’s popularity is the cheap pricing which is just around 8.99 USD (567 INR), and it can be streamed in two-four devices directly.
Let us look at how Netflix will fare in India. Many people say that India is a price sensitive country, which I feel is false, when you have majority of the nation living under less than 1 USD a day, it is but natural that people will spend according to their purchasing power. It is ridiculous to compare a third world nation with first world nation’s spending capacity.Continue reading “Namaste, Netflix”
This whole business of Aamir, an actor, and a citizen as IMPORTANT as you or me – irrespective of the class he enjoys – saying something and the way people are reacting has truly reached a circus-stage where you have carnival-barkers standing in front of every freak-show with their own costumes and placards.

After the success of Hunterrr, the lead duo, Gulshan Devaiah and Radhika Apte, have been approached for the sequel to the film. Harshavardhan Kulkarni who also directed ‘Hunterrr’, will direct the sequel.
Commenting on the sequel, Gulshan Devaiah said, “I was really happy with the response ‘Hunterrr’ received, so when Harshavardhan approached us for the sequel I immediately said yes. My character, Mandar, was a terribly insecure man in Part 1, till he found Tripti (Radhika Apte) who accepted him with all his flaws. In the sequel we will not go down the rocky track of the married couple fed up of each other. We saw that already in Tanu Weds Manu Returns.”Continue reading “Gulshan Devaiah and Radhika Apte to star in ‘Hunterrr’ sequel”
Guddu Rangeela is a prominent singer in Bhojpuri music industry, famous or rather infamous for his songs that are laced with sexual innuendos and crass lyrics. Subhash Kapoor’s film Guddu Rangeela, on the contrary, opens with an absolutely riveting ‘modern devotional song’- Mata Ka Email. While many may not be familiar with the Bhojpuri singer Guddu Rangeela, but the irony of the film, with that same notorious name, starting with a hilarious devotional song will not be lost on someone from Bihar. Sadly, despite a funny start and a reasonably exciting mid-point, Subhash Kapoor’s film squanders its potential in a dreary, lost second half.Continue reading “Guddu Rangeela Review: High on Promise, Low on Delivery”
