The side effect of Bahubali 2: The Conclusion

Bahubali 2: The Conclusion’ is a once-in-a-lifetime film. A box office phenomenon like the S.S. Rajamouli film happens only once in a decade or two. The last time a film pushed the level of film business to an altogether different level was Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun’ and before that we’d probably have to go back as far as Ramesh Sippy’s ‘Sholay’.

But a box office storm like ‘Bahubali 2’, a film that has shattered records across the country, has both advantages and disadvantages.Read More

Trendspotting In Hindi Films!

It has happened so often that key themes, plots or storylines of a successful movie has been suitably incorporated in subsequent movies to mirror the box office performance of the first one. What is even more intriguing is the repeat success of the above method on many occasions attaining the status of a formula at times.

Back in the 70s, Megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s “angry young man” image in the initial days was started by the super-hit run of Zanjeer (1973) which ran all the way till vigilante film Shahenshah in 1988. The action blended with drama in movies in the 1970s had ‘deteriorated’ to violence in late 1980s thus keeping the family audience away from theaters at the height of home video and film piracy. This is evident from the box office results of that era which had peaked at 15 crores (Sholay) in 1975 itself but remained stagnant for the coming two

Subhash K Jha: “Phogat’s Sake, Can’t Help Falling In Love With Dangal”

Starring Aamir Khan, Sakshi Talwar, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra

Directed by Nitesh Tiwari

There are outstanding films. Then there is Dangal. A film so rich in the flavours of homegrown emotions you feel you are floating in a field of aromatic sensation for close to three hours without feeling manipulated. You come away from this experience so moved and so much wiser that you wonder why cinema can’t be so rewarding more often.

But then again, if every other film was a Dangal how would we know the difference?

There I go, raving about a film which, let me state right way, will be remembered by posterity as one of the landmarks of Indian cinema in the same breath as, say Mother India, Sholay or Lagaan. Yes, Dangal has that kind of an impact. Not because it has anything new to say. On the surface it is another

Celebrate Halloween Bolly-ish style

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.

Dishoom Movie Review

I don’t know about you, but I for one have been eagerly waiting for buddy-cop films to come back into the limelight. Having grown up on the likes of Sholay, Main Anari Tu Khiladi and Munna Bhai, I could not have been more psyched to hear that the promising director who delivered a very hilarious Desi Boyz in 2011 is all set to regenerate this genre. Rohit Dhawan’s latest outing, Dishoom, claimed to be riding high on the 90s buddy-cop film nostalgia and promised to be an action-comedy entertainer that is not to be missed. But does it really end up doing all these things?

Yes and no. For starters he delivered the action he promised. In fact it seems at one point that the older Dhawan brother had set out to give another fellow Rohit a run for his money as the movie delivered one interesting car chase after another.

“Sarbjit is a Gem” – Subhash K Jha reviews Sarbjit

Seeing some of the scathing reviews for Sarbjit I was tempted to fish out the early reviews of a film released in 1975 which was condemned by critics for being “loud” , “brash”, “plotless” and “over-dramatic”.

That film was Ramesh Sippy’s Sholay.

Sarjbit is no Sholay. Thankfully. But I firmly believe its forceful message on prisoners of politics and its persuasive emotional velocity in the scenes showing the imprisoned man’s sister’s and wife’s suffering, would be acknowledged in retrospect as remnants of a truly remarkable cinematic achievement.

The sister is played by the helplessly beautiful Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who rises valiantly to confront and embrace the sister Dalbir’s anguished and defiant fight to the end to free her brother. This is Dalbir’s story, more than Sarbjit’s. And yet it’s also a film that doesn’t spare us Sarbjit’s anguish.

Sarbjit is not a film that holds itself back.

This first release of the year, directed by Bijoy Nambiar, is also a talk of the town with one of the most melodious romantic songs of recent times Tere Bin.

Given its storyline and the powerful trailer, with music to match, it is believed that Wazir will interest teenagers and young adults.

Delhi High Court slaps fine on Ram Gopal Varma for copyright violation

Delhi High Court slaps fine on Ram Gopal Varma for copyright violation
Back in 2007 we saw the release of the Ram Gopal Varma directed remake of the cult classic Sholay in the form of Rgv Ki Aag. Now years on we learn that the Delhi High Court has slapped the director with a fine of Rs. 10 lakhs for intentionally and deliberately developing a remake of the 1975 film without permission, effectively violating the exclusive copyright vested with its director Ramesh Sippy.

This judgement comes after a lawsuit was filed by Sascha Sippy, son and grandson of the original film's producers Vijay Sippy and Gp Sippy. In his petition Sascha alleged that the remake film Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag (also titled Aag) was violative of the exclusive copyright held by the Sholay Media and Entertainment Pvt Ltd.

Salim Khan: When I came to become an actor, I thought I could outdo Dilip Kumar

Salman Khan's Bajrangi Bhaijaan, recently saw the launch of its children's book titled as 'Geography with Bajrangi Bhaijaan'. Also present for the launch was Salman's father Salim Khan and at the event he spoke about the importance of education and how it helped him when he had nowhere to go.

When asked Salim Khan about how did they come up with the idea, he said, "My father used to tell us to study a lot which in turn helped me a lot because when I came to become an actor, main samajta tha ki Dilip Kumar ki dukaan bandh karva dung (I used to think that I could outdo Dilip Kumar). But nothing happened. I didn't have anywhere to go and at that time only my education helped me. How many ever of my films have been made, be it Haathi Mere Saathi, Zanjeer, Sholay or Trishul, education has been my biggest contributor.
