Lyricist Duo Siddharth-Garima: “The beauty of lyrics lies in the imagery it creates in the mind of the listener” – Bajirao Mastani

4 December 2015 12:06 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

We first experienced the magic of Siddharth and Garima’s writing in the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela. The duo, along with Mr. Bhansali, brilliantly transformed the story of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet into an Indian context and the result was rave reviews for the writing and the stars.

For their next project they entered the world of a love story of a warrior – Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s epic Bajirao Mastani starring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra. For what is being called his magnus opus, Mr Bhansali went to Siddharth and Garima to paint beautiful pictures with their lyrics for three of the biggest songs, ‘Deewani Mastani’, ‘Pinga’ and ‘Mohe Rang Do Laal’.

I was granted the amazing privilege to interview Siddharth and Garima about RamLeela and it was a joy to write the piece. This week, I once again was honored with the »

Good-looking Junk – Subhash K. Jha reviews ‘Shaandaar’

22 October 2015 9:31 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

The very good looking lead pair of this enormously disappointing film, ironically and pompously calling itself Shaandaar, are insomniacs. To prove it, they even get a ravaged remix version of the classic number ‘Neend Na Mujhko Aaye’ playing in the background as Shahid and Alia go fishing, dancing, and generally pfaffing around to fob off sleep-challenged ennui.

I have a great solution for all insomniacs. Watch Shaandaar. Repeatedly in a loop. Sleep guaranteed.

Outwardly the film has everything going for it. The director of Queen Vikas Bahl helming the hijinks as two ridiculously ostentatious business families gather for a destination wedding in a European idyll.

It must have cost them a bomb. To make the film, I mean. To cart the large cast of bimbos, bimbettes, toy boy and joy girls all to a European destination for a film that must have seemed smart on paper…very smart. After all, »

Actor-producer Sanjay Kapoor will be seen playing a pivotal role in Vikas Bahl's rom-com Shaandaar releasing soon. To be specific, the actor, for the first time plays the role of a Sindhi don named Harry Fundwani in this upcoming film about destination wedding.

Deepika Padukone and Shah Rukh Khan: Co-stars turned competitors

15 July 2015 5:21 AM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

History repeats itself. Sanjay Leela Bhansali's movie will once again clash with Shah Rukh Khan. If you can remember, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Saawariya and Shah Rukh Khan starrer Om Shanti Om released in Diwali 2007.

This year again, Sanjay Leela Bhansali seems adamant to keep Bajirao Mastani movie release date as December 18, thus clashing with Shah Rukh Khan - Kajol starrer Dilwale.

At this point in time, both Slb and Srk are on a career high - Sanjay has given a hit in Goliyon Ki Rasleela: Ram-leela and Shah Rukh Khan has given hits with Deepika Padukone in the form of Chennai Express and Happy New Year.

Now, Sanjay Leela Bhansali has once again got his Goliyon Ki Rasleela: Ram-leela cast Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone together for Bajirao Mastani. On the other hand, Shah Rukh Khan has paired up with Kajol (both who gave the most successfully running »

Ek Paheli Leela and 11 Bollywood movies that glamorized punar janam

7 April 2015 3:31 AM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

Some re-incarnation movies leave an impact, while some are downright flops. With Ek Paheli Leela releasing this weekend, we bring you 11 other movies which have either pleased our minds or made us crib for watching it. Take a look...

Om Shanti Om:

This Deepika Padukone's debut film is a story about the rebirth of a lover played by Shah Rukh Khan, who dies poor in one life and is a super-successful star in his next life. While he does not get his love in his previous life, a lady with the same face enters his life with desperateness to meet the superstar.

Karan Arjun:

This evergreen drama is always remembered for the epic dialogue 'Mere Karan Arjun aayenge'. Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan took punar janam on the wish of their mother played by Rakhee and also settled the old score with their killers.

Box Office – Tevar aims for single screens as well as multiplexes

8 January 2015 2:10 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Three weeks after Pk, finally a big Bollywood film would be arriving in the form of Tevar. Amongst all the relative newcomers who have arrived in last four-five years, Arjun Kapoor had the most successful 2014, what with 2 States, Gunday and Finding Fanny resulting in around 200 crore coming in. On the other hand, Sonakshi Sinha too had a hit in Holiday and a decent grosser in Action Jackson. Both youngsters have a good fan following and that should further help Tevar, which is aiming at a pan-India audience with something for multiplexes as well as single screen audience.

Moreover, with Manoj Bajpayee in there, the film gains further credibility. The makers (Eros, Sanjay Kapoor) have made the film on a lavish scale and the promotion has been quite strong as well. Also, the release size of the film is good too and all of this means that even a 40%-50% start »

Reflections 2014: Bollywood Razzies

2 January 2015 8:44 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

2014 gave many gems to adore like Queen, Finding Fanny and Haider, but for every good film there’s a Humshakals, It’s Entertainment and Action Jackson. With every editorial on the new changes in Bollywood, there’s the inexplicable popularity of duds that have Ajay Devgn loudly zipping up his trousers or Saif running around London like a dog. It’s baffling that films like Bang Bang or Kick work, but the modest failure of Humshakals had us filled with glee, maybe next year the audiences will finally give up on Sajid Khan. This year’s Razzies features some repeat offenders (looking at you Jackky!) and some newbies who should know better.

Awful Actress – Katrina Kaif in Bang Bang

Every time, we want to forgive Katrina Kaif for her blandness and poker face, she gives us another lacklustre performance to trash. It’s a bit too easy here in Bang Bang, »
