Hey Bro Music Review

16 February 2015 12:02 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Hey Bro is a forthcoming film that has been directed by Ajay Chandok and features choreographer Ganesh Acharya as the main ‘hero’ of the film. A story about judwaa (twin) brothers with a twist, this is the first time that the audience will see Ganesh as an leading actor and not just a choreographer.

There are five songs in the soundtrack of Hey Bro and upon first hearing, one can instantly tell that they are situational songs and will make a lot more sense once seen with their respective promo video or within the film. The music of the film has been composed by music directors Nitz n Sony (Nitin Arora & Sony Chandy) who have very bravely experimented with the sound of their music and have not stuck purely to one music genre in this album.

First up is Mera Gaana Bajade DJ which has vocals by Sunidhi Chauhan and Ali Zafar. »

Shamitabh review – Amitabh Bachchan in affectionate but incoherent satire

9 February 2015 4:29 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This Bollywood tale about a mute who tries to be a movie star fails to follow through on the theme of losing one’s authentic voice in a film industry rife with phonies

The Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan has been universally recognised as a voice of authority for some time: it’s why Baz Luhrmann cast him as Jewish gangster Meyer Wolfsheim in his Gatsby remake. Back home, Bachchan has partnered with writer-director R Balki for a trio of films examining the pitfalls of ageing. After 2007’s crowd-pleasing May-December romance Cheeni Kum and 2009’s peculiar Benjamin Button variant Paa, the new release Shamitabh forms the pair’s most self-reflexive endeavour yet: a movieland tale that finds Bachchan playing a former performer whose voice soars over his drastically reduced circumstances.

She is known for giving us some of the finest performances by any star in recent years—from Cocktail to Ram Leela, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani to Race 2 , Finding Fanny to Happy New Year, Deepika Padukone is set to take her acting prowess a notch higher with Shoojit Sircar’s family comedy drama Piku.

Apart from the fact that the film is a casting coup—since it brings Amitabh Bachchan, Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone together for the first time,  Piku is also Deepika’s first stand alone title role since her debut in Om Shanti Om. In this quirky father-daughter tale, Deepika plays a modern Bengali girl alongside Amitabh Bachchan who plays her father.

Currently India’s top actress, Deepika has always experimented with films, a fact that is evident from the diverse range of roles she has played in the past. It is this desire to seek »
