A quick recap: in 2004 Inder Kumar (Dil, Beta) directed Masti, starring Vivek Oberoi, Ritesh Deshmukh and Aftab Shivdasani. It had some comic moments, a good soundtrack and spawned a series of similar comedies based around the ‘3 lead actors being unfaithful’ formula (Shaadi No.1, Thank You). Nearly a decade later, we have a follow on film named Grand Masti which promises to be an entertaining ‘adult’ comedy. Does it live up to the expectations? Is it as good as the original? Read on to find out.
The story in a nutshell is about three married friends who are invited back for a college reunion. They get involved with 3 desirable girls, sing, dance and get into a whole heap of trouble when their wives find out. Essentially Grand Masti is the same theme, with the same lead cast, but it is not really a sequel in the true sense of it. Neither »

For an adult comedy, Grand Masti is all set to embark on a good start for itself. The film benefits from a terrific recall value that Masti as a series boasts of. Moreover, the entire promotional campaign has been bang on target, hence finding its target audience on it’s way. While this also means that children and to an extent family audience are out of picture for this Indra Kumar directed affair, the fact also remains that the film would see the biggest ever opening for the director who had started his career with family flicks like Dil, Beta and Raja.
The film is plagued though by the stay order in Punjab and Haryana on charges of vulgarity. However as it happens with most films, this one too is expected to sail through. As things stand today, the film should take 60%-70% opening for itself, which would ensure that »

It has been a decade since Ryan Atwood (Benjamin McKenzie) had his first entree into life in "The O.C.," bringing fans of teen soap along for a look at life inside the mansions of Newport Beach. The Fox drama, which premiered on August 5, 2003, was filled with envelope-pushing sexual encounters, Juicy Couture jumpsuits, Death Cab for Cutie, trips to T.J. and much, much more.
Josh Schwartz was a day shy of 27 when "The O.C." first hit the airwaves, which made him the youngest TV creator ever and probably, one of the only ones who would admit to penning a highly-acclaimed pilot in his boxer shorts.
From the real story behind Mischa Barton's departure to the Cohens' original name, and the missed coupling opportunities to the star who didn't even make it onto "The O.C.'s" first poster, read on to see what Schwartz revealed to The Huffington Post while »

We have already told our patrons (courtesy Sharman Joshi!) that the veteran, but still in form director, Indra Kumar, is returning to his forte, the emotional drama days of Dil, Beta, Raja etc, instead of going for the 'safe-as-a-house', comedy genre' as in Dhamaal and Masti series. The film in question is obviously Indra Kumar's next venture, Super Nani, which features amongst others Read More »

Bollywood goddess Madhuri Dixit was once told early in her career that she would never succeed within the film industry. At a recent event, Madhuri stated the following to the Indian media and how she was determined to prove her critics wrong. “Being a woman you always go through something or the other. When I made my debut in Bollywood, many people told me I can’t do, it’s not a good place, I can’t make my position in this industry. But that time I had faith in myself and worked and proved everyone what can I do.”
Making her film debut in Abodh (1984), Madhuri eventually secured the stardom she sought to achieve with the blockbuster hit Tezaab (1988), where she performed opposite 80s superstar Anil Kapoor. Subsequently, she has starred in key Bollywood films like Dil (1990), Beta (1992), Khal Nayak (1993), Hum Aapke Hain Koun (1994) and Dil To Pagal Hai »

Mumbai, Feb 6: One of the best actresses in tinsel town, Madhuri Dixit is very strict when it comes to health issues and adds she is quite good at multi-tasking too.
"I am a multi-tasker. I can do two things together. I am very strict with myself and my kids too. I handle my diet and I am responsible for my health," she told Ians in an interview.
During her long and successful innings in the filmdom, she churned out hits like "Tezaab", "Beta", "Dil", "Dil To Pagal Hai". However, her comeback film after her marriage with the Us-based doctor Sriram Nene "Aaja Nachle" turned out to be a damp squib when it hit the theatres in 2007.. »

"Splinter Cell: Conviction" was decisive for fans of the globetrotting techno-thrillers based on the works of Tom Clancy. For the series faithful, the gunplay heavy 2010 entry, in simplifying the stealth and emphasizing quick kills using the then-new Mark and Execute mechanic was a betrayal to the methodical stealth gameplay of previous "Splinter Cell" titles. On the other hand, to some, it was a more accessible game, still allowing players to skulk around the shadows as Sam Fisher, but with less time spent waiting for NPCs to complete lengthy routes along their AI-controlled paths.
When Ubisoft gave an early look at "Splinter Cell: Blacklist" during last year's E3, the big question was which "Splinter Cell" would it be? The deliberate, low and slow stealth game of the "Double Agent" era, or the more action-oriented "Conviction?" Last week, the publisher brought out the gaming press for some hands-on time with two single player maps from "Blacklist, »

For me, you are Munna, the Jhakaas boy! You are also the epitome of fitness for me. You have always been the barometer when I have compared physically fit stars. A few of my journalist friends wondered what I had with you whenever I mentioned, "Look at Anil Kapoor, he is 40. See how he carries himself." That was over a decade ago. At 50-plus you still look swell. I mean, you will still be able to do a Tezaab remake! Tezaab, Mashaal, Eshwar and Beta all impresse »
