“Aadar Jain and Anya Singh are exemplary in Qaidi Band” – Subhash K Jha Review

25 August 2017 9:42 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Qaidi Band

Starring Aadar Jain, Anya Singh

Written & Directed by Habib Faisal

Just days before I saw the very real and gripping Qaidi Band, a vegetable seller in my locality whom I saw regularly on the street, disappeared. When I asked his wife about him she said he had been taken to jail after getting in a street brawl where he tried to save a friend from a knife attack. Now, sobbed the wife, they can’t afford a lawyer who can bail him out.

Blessedly in Qaidi Band there is a hotshot lawyer played by Ram Kapoor, who agrees to help innocent undertrials free of cost. Such miracles don’t happen in real life. But when they do in this film we sigh in relief.

In Habib Faisal’s fast-flowing anthem to imprisoned angst Sanju (played with bridled vigour by debutant Aadar Jain) tells Bindu (Anya Singh, a prized »

The rock ballad Junooni from Qaidi Band

8 August 2017 5:45 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

We have a brand new song from Yrf’s Qaidi Band. ‘Junooni’, a rock ballad, captures the passion within of these young, vulnerable under trails as they come together to form a band and a bond despite their circumstances. Like the, resonant lyrics and passionate vocals reflect, and as does the word Junooni, Junooni is a passion for music, for freedom and a latent, understated passion for each other that is just evolving. The video shows the innocent chemistry evolving between these two debutants- namely Aadar Jain and Anya Singh. As well as the friendship and bandship that forms between the 7 prisoners. Junooni takes the narrative of Qaidi Band forward ringing with optimism and a setting for perhaps a prem kahani to bloom behind bars.

For hearts that love, eyes that dream and people who are #Junooni

The melodious track with a rockin tinge has been sung by Arijit Singh »

Yrf’s Qaidi Band Brings Hulchul- A Moving Call To Hope and Freedom

1 August 2017 6:29 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Aadar Jain and Anya Singh certainly made impact in the intense trailer of Yash Raj Films’ Qaidi Band. As under trials seeking freedom with their music and the unusual band within the four walls of a prison, their story is about seeking and struggling to find freedom. The new song, Hulchul, from the film, captures the pain that their struggle for freedom ensues beautifully.

Sung by Arijit Singh and Yashita Sharma to Amit Trivedi’s music and lyrics by Kausar Munir, both Aadar Jain and Anya Singh bring alive the trauma of their characters brilliantly. Hulchul, a song that prison inmates in the film find moving, will also move audiences with its intense tone and powerful lyrics.

A hope. A dream. A movement. Feel it rise within you with the song #Hulchul from ‘Qaidi Band’.

Directed by Habib Faisal, Yrf’s Qaidi Band releases on August 25th across India. »

Mirza Juuliet Is Raunchy, Rugged & Rebellious – Subhash K Jha review

8 April 2017 1:56 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

More than midway into the turbulent take on the destiny of star-crossed lovers on the run, the Uttar Pradesh ki Juliet, aka Julie, who has been raped by her sexed-up finance is told by her father-like elder brother to calm down.

“I shouldn’t be saying this. But my sister, you are so pretty. Any man would get carried away,” giggles Bade Bhaiyya Priyanshu Chatterjee anxiously, unwilling to break an alliance that means huge political gains for him and his family.

This is normal procedure in a section of the Cow Belt. Make the daughter a sacrificial cow for your personal gains. And when she shows more spirit than that bottle on the table, kill her. Family honour, you know.

This is one of the more disturbing moments in film that’s plotted like a wildly cascading stream toppling and tumbling across a craggy path before crashing to a halt »
