The Return Of Ram Gopal Varma – Subhash K Jha reviews ‘Veerappan’

13 hours ago | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Starring Sachiin Joshi,Sandeep Bhardwaj, Usha Jadhav, Lisa Ray

Directed by Ram Gopal Varma

There is something about Ram Gopal Varma’s tireless spirit that gets to you. His new Hindi film, his first in three years, is a frenetic frenzied near-hysterical take on the brutal life of the jungle outlaw Veerappan who, apparently, could kill with an impunity that made mass murder a political issue.

To his credit Rgv has done his homework well. There is enough evidence here to convince us that Veerappan was a dangerous psychotic socio-political outcast who deserved to get the death that he finally did. The dark brooding earthy atmosphere created in the film adds to the feeling of dread.

This is no country for the sensitive. And if you are the kind who visits the cinema for emotional release Veerappan is not your thing.

Ram Gopal Varma to hold a special screening of Veerappan for cops

23 May 2016 9:53 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

We all know that the maverick filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma is now all set to release Veerappan, which happens to be is the Hindi version of his Kannada film Killing Veerappan. While making the film, Ram Gopal Varma did extensive research on the dreaded Veerappan, who operated from Bandipur forest.

The cops who were instrumental in Veerappan's encounter, apparently helped Ram Gopal Varma with some of the information. That's why Ram Gopal Varma has now decided to show them the movie first, prior to its release in theatres.

Veerappan stars Sandeep Bhardwaj in the title role, along with Usha Jadhav, Lisa Ray and Sachiin Joshi (who also happens to be the film's producer). The film is slated to release on May 27. »

Lisa Ray injured during Veerappan shoot

18 May 2016 3:06 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Lisa Ray who will be seen in a never-before avatar in Ram Gopal Varma's Veerappan suffered a leg injury during the shooting of the film. Not that it dampened her adventurous spirit. This is the first time she is working with the prolific director and is understandably excited. Says Lisa, "I've been a fan of Rgv's work for a long time. When he narrated the story of Veerappan and explained my role, there was no doubt at all about doing the film. And working with Rgv was a dream-come-true, and unique. He was so clear about each and every scene and shot that I could relax into the role." I trusted him completely and that's very important for an actor. I also loved working with Usha Jadhav- her talent and story is so inspiring- and Sachiin who was a big support on the set- especially when I broke my toe. »

Ram Gopal Varma recreates the song Khallas with Zareen Khan in Veerappan

5 May 2016 3:34 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Fourteen years after Eesha Koppikar sizzled in 'Khallaas' in Ram Gopal Varma's gangster thriller Company, the filmmaker is gearing up to recreate the special number for his Veerappan biopic. The plot of Ram Gopal Varma's Veerappan covers Asia's biggest manhunt in history, the hunt for Koose Muniswamy Veerappan, also known as bandit Veerappan. While the 2002 film featured Ajay Devgn, Vivek Oberoi and Manisha Koirala, the biopic has Sandeep Bharadwaj in the titular character, and Lisa Ray. Zareen Khan, who made waves with her bold turn in Hate Story 3, steps into Eesha's shoes for the song. "The lyrics, 'Bachke tu rehna re... Nahin duja mauka milega sambhalna,' literally hint at Darwin's 'survival of the fittest' theory. Now the lyrics have been reworked to 'Khallas Veerappan', but its spirit remains the same, with a sexy Zareen dancing in the forest", states Rgv while talking about the recreated track. »

Ishq Forever Has Mushy Romance With A Dash Of Humour

22 February 2016 7:00 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

If you thought that ‘Ishq Forever’, which released today, is a love story about a couple, let us inform you that the film actually deals with the love story of two different pairs.

On one hand, the film revolves around the romance between Aryan Shekawat (Krishna Chaturvedi) and Rhea (Ruhi Singh), while on the other hand, the film also deals with the dynamics between Amitabh (Jaaved Jaaferi) and Naina Saxena (Lisa Ray).

Talking about his pairing with Lisa Ray, Jaaved said, “The comic element comes from the fact that a Raw agent has to work with his ex-wife and their cynicism about their failed relationship comes across as a foil to the mushy romance between Krishna and Ruhi.”

Directed by Sameer Sippy and produced by Ajay Shah, Himanshu Gandhi and Shabeer Boxwala under their banner Friday Cine Entertainment, ‘Ishq Forever’ is slated to release on February 19.

Actually, what happened was that we were shooting on a rough terrain and the light wasn’t conducive for a perfect shot, so we ended up taking 33 retakes.” Krishna added that he was slightly nervous initially, but grew comfortable once the shoot started.

Directed by Sameer Sippy and produced by Ajay Shah, Himanshu Gandhi and Shabeer Boxwala under their banner Friday Cine Entertainment, ‘Ishq Forever’, which also stars Lisa Ray and Jaaved Jaaferi, is slated to release on February 19.

Ishq Forever Is Different From ‘Run Of The Mill’ Romantic Films, Claims Producer Shabeer Boxwala

18 February 2016 6:00 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Producers Shabeer Boxwala, Ajay Shah and Himanshu Gandhi are coming together to produce ‘Ishq Forever’ under their banner Friday Cine Entertainment and Shabeer promises a love story with a few twists and turns.

Elaborating on the same, Shabeer said, “We decided to make Ishq Forever as we felt that since a long time, a pure love story that can be watched with the entire family has not been made in a long time. However, I must add that Ishq Forever is not a typical love story and has enough twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat.”

Another reason why Ishq Forever is much talked about is because it marks the comeback of legendary composer Nadeem Saifi. Interestingly, it was Nadeem, who suggested that the makers should cast newcomers in the film.

Nadeem Saifi: ‘We should bring back the Indian flavour in our music’

27 January 2016 7:16 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Legendary composer Nadeem Saifi will be seen making his comeback to Bollywood with upcoming rom-com Ishq Forever and though the composer is glad about the comeback, he also seems quite disappointed with the way Bollywood music is getting influenced by the West.

Elaborating on the same, Nadeem said, “As far as music is concerned, we are completely influenced by the West and there is just a lot of noise in music today. Most of the songs made today lack melody and soul and though there have been a few good numbers, they are far and few. I would request composers and lyricists to bring back our Indian flavor in their work. My song ‘Dheere Dheere’ has been remade and is cherished even today, which proves that today’s youngsters still enjoy melody and soulful lyrics. I would love it when Western music gets influenced by us and not the other way round. »
