Three Rivers brings Indian projects to Diff
Dubai Film Market is introducing a selection of Indian projects for the first time this year through a partnership with Europe’s Pjlf Three Rivers Residency.

The five projects are being scripted by hot new talents such as Kanu Behl, whose debut feature Titli premiered at Cannes’ Un Certain Regard in 2014, and Raj Rishi More, whose project is being produced by The Lunchbox director Ritesh Batra.

The Three Rivers residency provides writer-directors with a month-long distraction-free space to work on their scripts in the Italian countryside, with the help of an expert mentor, before presenting their projects at Diff. Although focusing on Indian projects in its first year, the organisers hope to open the programme to international writer-directors, including those from the Arab world, from next year.

“We feel writers sometimes need a much more concentrated period to hone their ideas and get away from all the distractions of a day job and daily life,” said producer

In Conversation with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and his tale of Mirzya

From the heartbreaking but brilliant Rang De Basanti, to the wonderful Delhi 6, to the inspiring Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra has brought Indian cinema some of its greatest films.

With his film Mirzya, he has now turned his focus on the Punjabi folk tale Mirza-Sahiban, but presenting it in a unique way. Interweaving the legendary folklore with a contemporary version, this musical brings out the story of a love that will never die. Joining him in transforming this story is the esteemed writer and poet Gulzar. Adding to the worlds of Mirzya is music by the great Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy.

Mirzya introduces Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher, along with Anuj Chaudhary. Also bringing the story to life are the screen masters, Om Puri, Art Malik, and K. K. Raina.

Some of my absolute favorite interviews to conduct are with directors because they just love talking about their movies.

Ancient Aliens: Was Shiva the Destroyer an alien leader?

This week’s Ancient Aliens examines whether the ancient Hindu god Shiva could have been an extraterrestrial. The experts discuss whether the deity, sometimes known as Shiva the Destroyer, was in fact the leader of an alien group who brought advanced technology to Earth. Shiva is one of a trinity of major gods in Hinduism. The name is Sanskrit and means The Auspicious One. More famously he is also known as the Creator, the Preserver and the Destroyer. American theoretical physicist Robert Oppenheimer quoted Shiva’s fellow deity Krishna after the first atomic bomb was detonated on July 16, 1945. He said: “Now more

Prem Ratan Dhan Payo Music Review

Director Sooraj Barjatya is back with his eternal Prem (Salman Khan) in tow in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, which looks a fun throwback to the Rajshri blockbusters like Hum Aapke Hain Kaun and Hum Saath Saath Hain. He’s roped in Himesh Reshammiya, who is no stranger to retro sounds with his composing work, which is both his weakness and strength to haters and fans. Yet Reshammiya shows that he’s up to task in recreating the big and grand spectacles of the Rajshri songs. If we were to compare the soundtrack to a food, it’s like a comfort food that delivers the goods for that short while, which is part of the Rajshri treatment that we’re getting after so long.

The album kicks off with Prem Leela, which is a big and brassy number that was unveiled last week. The song is your characteristic Salman song with the loud dhols and drums,

Finding Fanny in Trouble (Again): Ban Petitioned for the Use of Vulgar Word ‘Fanny’

  • Bollyspice
The release of Finding Fanny has run into an obstacle, as a petition was filed in the Delhi High Court on Tuesday seeking a ban on the release of director Homi Adajania’s new film, due to its use of the “vulgar word” ‘fanny”.

As reported by Ians, the public interest litigation (Pil) also challenged the UA certificate given to the film, which is scheduled to release on Friday.

Although ‘fanny’ is the short form of the popular name Stephanie, it is also a slang word that may refer to the female genitals or the buttocks. The petition claims that the word has a highly sexually explicit meaning, so its use in the film will hurt the feelings of the citizens of India, especially minor children.

The Pil was filed by Nandini Tiwari and Ngo Jai Jagriti Foundation through their lawyer Abhishek Krishna. They consider that the word ‘fanny’ is

Blog Review: Krrish 3

Usually people fear the moment they have to take back their words but when it comes to films I genuinely welcome someone proving me wrong, if it means that a film is better than I expected. No denying that I pegged Krrish 3 to be the biggest disaster of all times. Why? Well to me Koi Mil Gaya and Krrish were mega disasters so to expect the third film in the series to impress was just unreasonable. However having just returned from my viewing of the film I’m all smiles and can happily declare, I was wrong!

The film boasts of a lot of genuine creativity which I didn’t expect since the previous films have been too borrowed. But Krrish 3 sticks to the genre and brings in the essential elements we want from superhero entertainers with a bit of desi tadka. There’s a rich human and

Krrish 3 Movie Review

One walks into a superhero film wanting to be overwhelmed. Tall order indeed! After all, in how many different ways can a superhero save the world? The template is more the less the same in all superhero films. It is just the treatment that tells a winner from the loser. So is Krrish 3 a winner or a loser?

Krishna (Hrithik Roshan) is living a peaceful life with his wife Priya (Priyanka Chopra) and father Rohit (Hrithik again of course). Or as peaceful as life can be for the friendly neighbourhood superhero with one crisis or the other not letting him hold down a job for more than a few days. Enters Kaal (Vivek Oberoi), a wheelchair-bound genius with a penchant for creating mutants from his own DNA. His chief mutant is the shape-shifting Kaaya (Kangana Ranaut) who helps him terrorise the world by injecting hapless people with the virus created by him.
