‘Red Alert’ – a believable Maoist story (Ians Movie Review – Rating: *** and 1/2)

9 July 2010 6:19 AM, PDT | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Film: ‘Red Alert: The War Within’; Director: Anant Mahadevan; Cast: Suniel Shetty, Sameera Reddy, Ashish Vidyarthi, Vinod Khanna, Seema Biswas, Ayesha Dharker, Bhagyashree; Rating: *** and 1/2

Arundhati Roy called their fight the single greatest resistance against oppression in the world, while our prime minister, the deceptively genial Manmohan Singh, called them the greatest internal security threat. Between these extreme reports of their bringing rural-equality and their massacres, what’s the truth about the Maoists or Naxalites?

Films like Red Alert should be made: Suniel Shetty

5 July 2010 11:41 PM, PDT | Filmicafe | See recent Filmicafe news »

As an actor, Suniel Shetty is ecstatic about the new and exciting phase in his career. The fact that his realistic Red Alert - The War Within comes after a riotous comedy like De Dana Dan and a family drama like Tum Milo To Sahi tells a lot about different roles that are coming his way. Add to that the fact that a few months back, Red Alert fetched him an award for the Best Actor at New York's South Asian International Film Festival is something that excites him even more."It's a major shot in the arm when international award and recognition comes in. Suddenly, it starts seeming that you are working in just the right projects. It is ironical though that a foreign country had to come and recognize my talent", he says."Icing on the cake is when you working on different kind of films at the same time. »

[DVD Review] Loins of Punjab Presents

17 April 2010 8:00 AM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Loins of Punjab Presents is a mockumentary patterned after the formula of Christopher Guest - a variety of could-have-beens and wannabe butt heads in a contest of talent, but more importantly, of self-worth and vindication, in which seemingly average non-creative types pit themselves (and each other) against steep odds and go to surprising lengths to get something that most people wouldn’t even think of applying for. In this case, the object of the game is the Loins of Punjab Bollywood-style singing contest, sponsored by Mr. Bokade (Jameel Khan), who is bringing all of this to fruition courtesy of his outrageous pork fortune. As a portrait of Indian-American culture and people who aren’t as talented as they wish they were, Loins is surprisingly sharp in its politics and perspective on the difficulties of maintaining cultural identity in a rapidly shifting world. It's too bad it doesn’t work better as a film. »
