Get Ready for Tamasha!

24 November 2015 8:35 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

We are very close to getting to see the tamasha of Tamasha when it releases on November 27th. The Imtiaz Ali directed film stars the great jodi of Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone.

Our lead pair’s love story begins with once upon a time on an exotic island, far far away, Ved and Tara – a tale of youthful abandon. Ved has grown up among stories. As a kid in Simla, he would collect money, even steal money so that the old storyteller would tell him stories. Ramayan, Helen of Troy, Laila Majnu, Heer Ranjha, Aladdin, Romeo Juliet. The storyteller would also say that all stories are the same. Ved wants his story with Tara to be different. So they decide to not tell each other who they are, to only lie about themselves and after returning from the island to never meet each other again. But they do meet again. »

Imtiaz Ali: “My favorite thing about Tamasha is Ranbir and Deepika”

23 November 2015 7:15 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

From his very first film Socha Na Tha, through the fabulous Jab We Met, to Cocktail, Rockstar and Highway, director Imtiaz Ali always takes you on an incredible cinematic journey. What makes his movies so very good is that while watching, you get lost in the world he has created on film and live with the characters through the story, the drama, the tears, the love and sometimes the happy ending. As a director he always manages to bring out incredible performances by the actors in his film, many times career-changing performances that truly show what an actor is made of. Think Deepika Padukone in Cocktail, Ranbir Kapoor in Rockstar, Alia Bhatt in Highway and so many more.

For Tamasha, which stars the incredible jodi of Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, Mr. Ali turned the focus on a story about life, love and being who you are truly are instead »

Ravindra Jain, Prolific Bollywood Composer, Dies

9 October 2015 2:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bollywood composer Ravindra Jain, who created the music for such 1970s hits as “Chitchor,” died Oct. 9 in a Mumbai hospital. He was 71.

Jain composed such catchy tunes as “Jab deep jale aana” and “Gori tera gaon bada pyara” for the Amol Palekar-Zarina Wahab starrer, helping its box office. It also introduced singer Jesudas to Bollywood films and led to a successful partnership.

Born of a classical music family in Uttar Pradesh, Jain was encouraged to sing religious songs.  He started out as a songwriter working with Kishore Kumar in 1974’s “Chor machaye shor.”

Despite being blind he had a flourishing career, composing music for more than 150 films in Hindi as well as regional languages. But he also composed songs for popular TV serials including Ramanand Sagar’s “Ramayan” and “Jai Hanuman.”

Jain was to have performed in a concert in Nagpur, but it was canceled when he fell ill earlier this week. »
