In Conversation with cinematographer and director Santosh Sivan

10 July 2014 6:07 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

When talking about the great cinematographers of India, one name that has to be at the top is Santosh Sivan. He has won over 13 National Awards, was recently honored with a Padma Shri and also is the first Indian cinematographer to be inducted into the American Society of Cinematographers. Not only does he focus the lens and set the frame in both Indian and English films, he also has sat in the director’s chair to create his own magic. His credits include Dil Se, Asoka, The Terrorist, Before the Rains, Thalapathi, Raavan, Iruvar, Roja, Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani, and more.

As part of the London Indian Film Festival on July 11th, Mr. Sivan will be giving a special master class. I was lucky enough to chat with Mr. Sivan about his career, and it was a fascinating conversation covering many different and interesting topics. Enjoy!

However, despite the character being crucial to the film, John's role may not be very big in Jazbaa.

S2 E1, 'The Bad Fish Paradigm'

Have you ever watched a movie featuring Aishwarya Rai? Perhaps you've seen pictures of her? Go ahead and Google her, I'll wait (don't worry, she's very anti-nudity, so don't worry about any Nsfw pictures coming up). Gorgeous, isn't she? And yet, Sheldon would have you believe that she's a poor man's Madhuri Dixit. While Dixit is indeed very beautiful, she's no Aishwarya. However, Sheldon also believes that he could be Batman with the right funding, so there you are. Welcome to Season Two of The Big Bang Theory, where wackiness reigns and science is the name of the game.

When we left Leonard and Penny at the end of Season One, they were on their first date. We rejoin them as the date is wrapping up, and Leonard is explaining to Penny that frozen yogurt isn't yogurt at all, which she finds interesting, but »

London Asian Film Festival to celebrate the works of Rituparno Ghosh

24 May 2014 9:29 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

The passing of Rituparno Ghosh in 2013 left Indian cinema bereft of one of its finest craftsmen.

The Kolkata-born writer, director, activist and literary figure – just 49 years of age at the time of his untimely death – was widely recognized as the spiritual successor to the legendary Satyajit Ray.

Now the life and work of this creative genius is set to be celebrated at the 16th annual Tongues on Fire London Asian Film Festival (Laff) to be held in June across the British capital: a city which held particular affection for Ghosh.

The Festival – Europe’s oldest and most respected showcase for independent South Asian cinema – will hold screenings of three of Ghosh’s most critically acclaimed films and a series of discussions on the filmmaker’s immeasurable contribution to Indian cinema.

The tributes will begin with a screening of ‘Chitrangada’, Ghosh’s seminal 2012 drama based on the story of the character »

London to finally feel The Rajini Effect

12 May 2014 5:10 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

After premiering last year at the Stuttgart Indian Film festival and scooping the prestigious award for best film voted for by the audience, The Rajini Effect is finally ready to grace the screens in the UK.

The film is a quirky comedy about a Japanese guy who wants to become an Indian movie star like his boyhood idol Rajinikanth. The film has been produced by Barking Mad Productions and written/directed by the brothers Nelson and Kuvera Sivalingam, who are both big fans of the South Indian Superstar.

“A lot of people do not realize how popular Rajinikanth is. He is the biggest movie star in India. Bigger than Amitabh Bachan. Bigger than Shah Rukh Khan,” said Nelson Sivalingam. “We wanted to introduce the magic of Rajinikanth to those who are yet to know of him.”

Rajinikanth is 63 years old and has been in the film industry for over 35 years; acting in over 150 films, »

12 May 2014 4:13 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Mishti whose debut in Kaanchi has been received lukewarmly by critics and by the audience is all set to do another film with Subhash Ghai. This time her co-star would be Salman Khan.

Far from being fazed Subhash Ghai's latest discovery says all the flak has made her stronger and wiser over one weekend.

Says the spirited Bengali girl, "It's is said, what can't break you makes you stronger. These last few days have matured me. Its amazing how one weekend can change one's entire life. Today I feel stronger than I did earlier. I think I've grown up."

Not that Mishti is overjoyed by the response to the film. "That's one year of my life. During the last oneyear I did nothing except Kaanchi. It was my life. Now there is a feeling of disappointment at the way some critics have responded to the film and my presence. »
