12 Top Films to Celebrate Indian Independence Day

14 August 2017 5:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Seventy years ago India got its independence from the Brits, but that freedom didn’t come without pain, as the country was severed in two and Pakistan was formed. Though the British censors banned any entertainment that encouraged independence, Indian cinema was right there recording the country’s highs and lows. But after a spate of such films, audience taste changed — the freedom struggle was deemed dreary and filmmakers turned to the subject only sporadically. Here are a dozen films that show the patriotic fervor and sorrow of Partition — which ones do you remember?

Nastik (1954)

In this Partition tale, a brother wreaks revenge on the priest who sold his sister into prostitution during the migration of people from the two sides. Starring Ajit and Nalini Jaywant and directed by comedian I.S.Johar, the heart-rending story mirrored the real-life upheaval in which children were separated from their families as huge waves of Hindus, Muslims »

Editorial Blog: Nepotism rocks!

1 August 2017 7:46 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Recently, a lot has been once again said and written on nepotism in Bollywood. It all started on the latest edition of Koffee with Karan, where Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut accused filmmaker Karan Johar of favoring starkids. Then at the recent Iifa in NY, Karan Johar, Saif Ali Khan and Varun Dhawan cracked a joke on the subject saying nepotism rocks. This received a lot of backlash from the public, after which Karan Johar apologized for the joke, while Saif Ali Khan wrote an open letter in which he explained his point of view on the subject. His letter received a response from Kangana, who started the debate.

What is nepotism? Nepotism as suggested by Kangana is that starkids are given roles just on the basis of them being born in the industry. Having talent to actually perform is not being considered. There are auditions but starkids win… even without the audition. »

The beginner's guide to Bollywood

25 July 2017 3:41 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dave Lawrie Aug 16, 2017

Fancy a film that mashes up Reservoir Dogs and The Usual Suspects, with a few song and dance numbers? Step this way...

Film is such a diverse medium that it is possible to call yourself a fan without ever venturing out of your favourite genre. Hell, it is perfectly acceptable nowadays to add 'films' to your list of hobbies by watching nothing more than the output of the McU. Getting some people to venture into the wonderful world of foreign cinema can admittedly be a tall order. We’ve all met one, right? The 'I go to the cinema to watch, not to read!' crowd. That’s fine. There is nothing wrong with having your entertainment packaged as you like it.

Across the 15 years I’ve been seriously studying film though, the attitude towards subtitles has shifted a fair bit. »
