We all know that most of the films go through many changes during its making, from scripts to casting. Actors are replaced, scripts are polished, dialogues are changed and after passing through several such refining stages, a film is made. And when you talk about cults that today have a special place in our hearts,Read More

Celebrate Halloween Bolly-ish style

30 October 2016 6:31 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

October 31st is Halloween, when kids (of all ages) dress up to go trick-or-treating. Then, of course, there are the cool adults getting in on the costume fun to go to Halloween parties. Since we are all Bollywood buffs, okay fanatics, we thought it would be fun to poll our writers to see who they would love to dress up if we had a Bollywood Halloween – Bollyween Ball. Boy oh boy were we flooded with amazing and inventive ideas.

Some of these costumes you could probably put together easily. However, some might need extra help from family, tailors, costume designers, stylists, costume engineers and even Oscar winning makeup artist Greg Canoom (transformed Srk in Fan and Robin Williams in Mrs. Doubtfire)!!

Check out how the excellent team of BollySpice would celebrate Halloween Bolly-ish style.

Eros International to bring in the second instalment of Nayak 2

17 June 2016 4:59 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

The socio-political drama Nayak starring Anil Kapoor continues to gain popularity in the small screen as the film has managed to retain its fans through television. And now, after 15 years, a sequel to the same seems to be on the cards.

While there was several speculations about the second instalment, producer Deepak Mukut recently claimed that he has bought the rights of Nayak from Am Rathnam and is all set to collaborate with Eros International for the sequel. Further mentioning about retaining songs from the film in order to revive the memories of the prequel, Deepak also added that they are yet to take a call on casting. As of now, the film is in the scripting stage with Kv Vijeyndra Prasad developing the same. In fact, Deepak stated that they are keen on retaining Shivaji Rao as the name of the protagonist. He maintained that the film in question »

Zubaan Movie Review: “For Originality and Powerful Performances It Deserves A Standing Ovation” – Subhash K Jha

4 March 2016 6:46 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

For those who thought Vicky Kaushal’s Masaan act last year  was just a one-off flash in the pan affair, Zubaan is an  eye-opener. Kaushal plays Dilsher, the waylaid Sikh boy from Gurdaspur who only wants to be successful in ways that we normally describe success. So he schemes his way into the heart mind home and property of a business tycoon Sikand (Manish Chaudhary, exuding arrogant power the way Amrish Puri did in Subhash Ghai’s Pardes) ends up getting what he thinks he wants.

From here onwards first-time director Mozez Singh (who must be kidding about being a debutant, which first-timer would be able to make film so confident and compelling??!!) charts Dilsher’s descent into a selfserving opportunism and then his sudden swerve into redemption. This journey back and forth on the scale of morality has been undertaken repeatedly in films as far-ranging as Raman Kumar’s »

The Curse Of The Second Half Ruins A Potentially Explosive Sequel – Subhash K Jha reviews Ghayal Once Again

9 February 2016 2:22 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

The first-half of Sunny Deol’s admirable but finally undone sequel to the 1990 hit Ghayal is so riveting that one is hoodwinked into believing that we are on to something remarkably well-packaged over here.

Wrong! The second-half comes on like a tornado to wipe out all the good that is achieved earlier. And initially there is plenty that is done with edge-of-the-seat heart-in-the-mouth adeptness as we are introduced to our hero 14 years after he was incarcerated for killing Balwant Rai, played by Amrish Puri in the 1990 hit Ghayal.

New era. New villain. Same hero. This time Ajay Mehra,older and far more distraught than he was 14 years ago (he is psychiatric medication) takes on a corporate tycoon named Raj Bansal, played by Narendra Jha who was so compelling as Tabu’s missing husband in Haider. Here, the rhythm required from Jha is different and he tries hard to find his bearings. »
