Thanks To Mr Bachchan’s Rousing Performance Ram Gopal Varma Returns To Form – Subhash K Jha Reviews Sarkar 3

13 May 2017 4:30 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Starring: Amitabh Bachchan, Amit Sadh, Manoj Bajpai, Ronit Roy, Yami Gautam

Directed by Ram Gopal Varma

It is easy to see the third instalment of Ram Gopal Varma’s Sarkar franchise as an unnecessary carryover of a saga that has lost its relevance and sheen. But Sarkar 3 rises far above the wasteland of a stagnant crime-drama to give us an insight into a life of outlawry that is richly layered with blood and drama.

Bal Thackeray is dead. Long live Bal Thackeray. In Amitabh Bachchan’s persona – steely, gritty, imperturbable, granite-hard and yet malleable and vulnerable – the Thackeray doppelganger is uncanny. The walk, the talk and the ability to walk that talk to places where the dialogue writer would never have imagined…Take a bow, Mr B. They don’t make ‘em like you anymore.

It takes courage to build one more plot around that formidable and imposing figure »

11 May 2017 6:45 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Ram Gopal Varma is back with the third installment of Sarkar. Amitabh Bachchan reprises his role with trademark intensity and fiery anger. Sarkar 3 also features an amazing cast including Manoj Bajpayee, Ronit Roy, Amit Sadh, Yami Gautam, Jackie Shroff and Rohini Hattangadi among others.

Talented actor Amit Sadh was tapped to play the very intense role of Subhash Nagre’s grandson Shivaji and from what we have seen so far in the trailers he has totally immersed himself into the role and the world of Sarkar.

I had an absolutely amazing conversation with Amit about his role in the epic drama Sarkar 3. It was even more special because he opened up about his thoughts and dreams about acting. Check out what he had to say!

So you are contacted by Mr. Ram Gopal Verma who says I would like you to be a part of a film, then »

Naam Shabana is a film of rude awakening – Subhash K Jha review

31 March 2017 6:07 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Starring: Tapsee Pannu, Manoj Bajpai, Prithvi Raj, Akshay Kumar

Directed by: Shivum Nair

For a superstar who gallantly steps back to let the female hero of this gripping-from-the-word-go thriller, take centrestage it is rather unchivalrous of Akshay Kumar to be billed in the end-titles before the awesome Tapsee Pannu.

She rules the bustling intrigue-filled universe of this film.

After Pink Tapsee, God bless her scintillating soul, is again in startling form as Shabana Khan an ordinary girl with extraordinary resilience who, when pushed into a corner, hits back. Hits back really hard.

The thing about Tapsee is, she is never caught acting. I could only see this steel-willed imperturbable spunky girl on screen. Shabana is seen to live in a crowded Muslim locality of Delhi, shot by cameraman Sudhir Palsane with rigorous authenticity. As Shabana strides across the screen with a confidence that comes from a place opposite to emotional »

27 March 2017 10:22 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Khiladi Akshay Kumar continues to ace his game as the action hero, as co-star Taapsee Pannu shares how it was scary to do a combat movie with Akshay as he’s a force to be reckoned with.

Taapsee will be seen in the lead role in Naam Shabana, which features Akshay in an extended cameo. “I was getting trained by people Akshay had assigned for me. They were taskmasters. He was not present during the training period so I don’t know how he is on ground. But he sets the expectation meter very high and it is very intimidating to do an action film where he also is a part of the film as people expect that level of action,” Taapsee revealed.

Taapsee further went on to praise her co-star: “He is the calmest person I have ever met. He doesn’t get angry. He is extremely calm in »
