The recently released film Jai Gangaajal starring Priyanka Chopra has created a stir with its powerful storyline and spectacular performances. Set in the Bankipur district of Bihar, the story revolves around Sp Abha Mathur essayed by Priyanka who takes down corrupt politician Babloo Pandey played by Manav Kaul.

Reflections 2015: Bollywood Razzies of 2015

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year” goes the Xmas song, but it also applies to sorting through the dreck and crap that came out of Bollywood in 2015. I watched many of these duds so that you don’t have to, and trust me they’re not as hilarious as I’m going to make them, because for every great Jodi like Srk-Kajol in Dilwale there’s Sunny Leone being paired with Ram Kapoor. Yet there were some awful gems like Msg and its sequel that came out in the same year – take that annual Fast and Furious franchise! Herewith is the worst and secretly hilarious of the year.

Worst Actor – Emraan Hashmi for Hamari Adhuri Kahani/Mr X

After doing so well in Shanghai, and Ghanchakkar, Emraan decided to play it safe with his performances in Hamari Adhuri Kahani (paired opposite Vidya Balan) and the atrocious Mr X.

Boss's Stars Exude Superhuman Levels of Charm

Boss's Stars Exude Superhuman Levels of Charm
Boss is that rare Bollywood action film whose stars are worthy of the pedestal they're put on. Akshay Kumar (Special 26, Khakee) plays the title hero, a badass so miraculously macho that his sweat actually makes plants blossom. He meets his match in Ayushman Thakur (Shootout at Wadala's Ronit Roy), a crooked Delhi cop who threatens Boss's estranged brother (Shiv Pandit) and father. Kumar and Roy's characters are sketched out so broadly that they're practically embodiments of virtue and vice. Still, these extreme traits don't seem so extreme when they're personified by Kumar and Roy, actors who exude Schwarzenegger/Stallone levels of charm. The extent of Thakur's wickedness is sometimes unbelievable, as when he gives a loaded gun to a minor to quiet him down,...

BollySpice Review: Sunidhi Chauhan creates history at Royal Albert Hall with a spellbinding concert!

Acclaimed Bollywood playback singer Sunidhi Chauhan proved on Friday night that she is indeed one of the best artists in the industry today. Her UK tour ended with a concert at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall where she belted out some of her greatest songs. Organised by TLC Events and Rock On Music, Sunidhi’s incredible energy was felt by the audience and they showed their love for her by cheering as loud as they possibly could.

The concert opened with the classic ‘Aisa Jadoo’ (Khakee) and Sunidhi followed it up with hit songs like ‘Halkat Jawaani’ (Heroine) ‘Ainvayi Ainvayi’ (Band Baaja Baaraat), ‘Bin Tere’ (I Hate Luv Storys), ‘Yaaram’ (Ek Thi Dayaan), ‘Ishq Sufiyana’ (The Dirty Picture) and ‘Bhaage Re Mann,’ (Chameli). One had to be present at the concert to see how charismatic Sunidhi sounded live. Though she is undoubtedly good on recording, she sounded ten times better live on stage.

UK Readers! Win! CD Soundtrack of Fukrey

Your college days are said to be the best of your life – fun, frivolous and filled with friendship. But this is far from true in the new “rogue-trip” film ‘Fukrey’.

Fukrey is a twisted coming-of-age drama and deliciously hilarious tale of four young, hapless ‘nobodies’ [‘Fukreys’], running after their individual desires, brought together by one dream. Their lives are turned upside down when they chase that elusive ‘get rich quick’ scheme. The film combines the crazy antics and madcap mishaps of four loser college friends, as their paths cross with an array of colourful characters, from a tough-talking Punjabi female don to a Jugaad Baaz college watchman. Mayhem ensues with predictably hilarious and unexpected results.

Fukrey stars a bevy of talented stars in the Bollywood arena – Richa Chadda [‘Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!’, ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’]; Ali Fazal [3 Idiots, The Other End Of The Line] Manjot Singh [‘Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!’, ‘Udaan’], Pulkit Samrat [‘Bittoo Boss’] and Varun Sharma, amongst others.

The acclaimed producer duo Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani lend their sizable

Talaash Music Review

We have been subjected to a long wait for Reema Kagti’s Talaash to release in cinemas and it will finally be doing so on 30 November 2012. This crime thriller stars not one, not two, but three superstars in the leading roles, which adds to the film’s appeal. They are Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji. Hopefully this film will be another great entertainer for us all in a year when we have seen some pretty amazing films coming out of Bollywood. The music to Talaash has been composed by Ram Sampath, who has given us albums like Delhi Belly (2011) and Khakee (2004). The lyrics have been written by the legendary Javed Akhtar, who has recently provided lyrics for soundtracks like Don 2 (2011) and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (2011). So is the soundtrack to Talaash worth listening? Well let’s take a look and assess whether or not it is.

Ajay versus Akshay, the race gets hotter!

Just before the success of Bol Bachchan, detractors had already started pulling down Ajay Devgn from the top line of stars because his last two releases, Rascals and Tezz, had met with disastrous fates. This was quite similar to the treatment meted out to his Suhaag and Khakee co-star, Akshay Kumar, who was going through a very bad phase until Housefull 2 and Rowdy Rathore came along and propelled him in to the top slot. However, now there is a race to the top with both
