In praise of Parched and the films of this year’s London Indian Film Festival

2 hours ago

by Jonathan Howell

The 14th of July could well go down in history, not only as the opening night of the 2016 London Indian Film Festival (Liff), but also as the day that a film festival began to change the world. It may sound like a bold claim but it’s backed up by the festival’s diverse and pioneering programme which brought a wide variety of brand new features, documentaries, and short films which challenge the firmly held stereotypes of India and South Asia.

The festival kicked off with the powerful and deeply moving Parched, directed by Leena Yadav who is another of the steadily expanding group of famous female Indian directors who are gaining recognition on the world stage.

Box Office – Dishoom on a high as it arrives amidst zero competition

8 hours ago

Varun Dhawan is the only actor from his generation to be enjoying a clean slate so far. Student of the Year, Main Tera Hero, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya, Badlapur, Any Body Can Dance 2, Dilwale – each of his films has been a Hit, Superhit or at least a profitable affair for the makers. He has dabbled across solo starrers and two hero films and has found steady audience coming his way. With a double hat-trick to his name, Varun has been enjoying a steady pace in his career. Though in Shahrukh Khan’s Dilwale his antics weren’t on display in full throttle, the fact remains that the film did come close to the 150 crore mark.

Now that he is being seen in Dishoom where he has another senior actor [John Abraham] alongside him, he definitely hasn’t been relegated to the background. In fact the makers [Sajid Nadiadwala, Rohit Dhawan] and presenters [Eros] have done well »

Add to that, the soul-stirring lyrics of Javed Akhtar and you know that the outcome is a winner. The album of Mohenjo Daro can easily be listed as one of the best works by the music maestro of late.

Aditi Rao Hydari hones her Bihari accent to perfection for ‘The Legend of Michael Mishra’, by spending time with locals

26 July 2016 10:00 PM, PDT

A lot of actors nowadays begin their homework for their roles much before they start shooting for a film and actor Aditi Rao Hydari is no different.

In her next film The Legend of Michael Mishra, where she plays Arshad’s love interest, she has taken every measure to play the part perfectly.

Since the movie is heavily based in Patna and her character hails from the same, she spent time with many locals there to get her Bihari accent right. Aditi says it is important to justify the language that you adopt for a character and also get the tone and pronunciation correct.

As part of her preparation, she also took part in workshops. But it was the day to day interaction with the locals that helped her speak the language accurately.
