Katrina’s hot 'Swimsuit Avatar': Weekend Special

Katrina briefed her journey with this caption: “Maldives …. Harpers Bazaar Bride India shoot. 3 planes and a 12 hour journey later….we have reached.” Talking about Katrina, she looked sizzling in her white cut-out swimsuit that glowed under the rainbow sky. Katrina looked every inch of hotness personified during the shoot. Lately, she was going through an emotional turmoil post her alleged break-up with boyfriend, Ranbir Kapoor. There were speculations doing rounds about their togetherness again, after the break-up. But as usual no confirmation yet.Whatever it be, Katrina is a

“The story of the women of Parched lingers in our hearts and minds long after the last frame of Leena’s luminous work dies down” – Subhash K Jha


Starring Tannishtha Chatterjee, Radhika Apte , Surveen Chawla, Lehar Khan

Written & Directed by Leena Yadav

Long after Parched played out its poignant plot, I kept thinking about the four women at the forefront of Leena Yadav’s sparkling saga of patriarchal tyranny. The enduring grief and the brief bouts of buoyancy that Rani (Tannishtha Chatterjee), Lajjo (Radhika Apte), Bijlee (Surveen Chawla) and Janaki (Lehar Khan) carry with themselves, lingers in our hearts and minds long after the last frame of Leena’s luminous work dies down.

The film is shot with such inescapable beauty by Russell Carpenter (who moves with fluent fecundity from the soggy sappiness of Titanic to the parched desertscape of this walloping work on women’s empowerment) that you fear for the inner lives of the characters. Would their emotional existence be able to withstand the sheer extraneous splendor of the storytelling?

The answer, my friend, is blowing passionately in the winds.

Kareena Kapoor, Big B, Vidya Balan, Sunny Leone in ‘The Silver Screen & Beyond’ by Fawzan Hussain

”Silver Screen” by Fawzan Husain is a series of images taking a closer look at our prolific film industry “Bollywood”.

Everything that is so essentially ‘Bollywood’…the varied components that come together, and work in harmony to make a film are depicted in Fawzan’s photographs. He shoots a different view of Bollywood by capturing behind the scenes action on the sets: no frontal portraits, no posing for his camera. His photographs portray the real picture, the real people without the glamour, artifacts and ‘larger than life’ idea usually associated with Bollywood Silver Screen led him to `Beyond Silverscreen’. A look at how we Indian’s have fascination with our Filmy folks.

Which heroine doesnt want to work with Salman Khan Kareena defends her massy image

Which heroine doesnt want to work with Salman Khan Kareena defends her massy image
Kareena Kapoor Khan is very proud of being part of the last Salman Khan blockbuster Bajrangi Bhaijaan. And for those scoffing at the brevity of her part, she scoffs back, "All the actresses are dying to work with Salman. Even the ones he doesn't want to work with. Unke ghar ka chakkar lagati rehti hain. Salman has told me how they message him." Could Kareena be talking about Priyanka Chopra? "I am not talking about anyone in particular. But I love massy films. It's easy for people to say, why did Kareena do Singham or Golmaal? Arrey, but that's my journey! I am first and foremost a commercial mainstream star. That's where I come from. Lekin kabhi kabhi ghar se nikalna bhi toh chahiye. Speaking of Priyanka, Kareena turned down Zoya Akhtar's Dil Dhadkane Do. Apparently, because she wasn't keen on working with Ranveer Singh. Kareena clarifies, "It wasn't because of any actor.

This song is a reprised version of Marathi song ‘Ye Go Ye Maina’ from Marathi film ‘Jatra’. It is composed by Ajay-Atul, Chikini Chameli fame. Ganesh Acharya has choreographed the song while Amitabh Bhattacharya has written the lyrics.

5 reasons why Kareena Kapoor Khan's 'Mary' song from Brothers is sau takka unimpressive!

While she is an actor par excellence, it seems Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan also loves (rather wants) to be known as the 'item queen'. In past few years she has done an array of exotic and naughty dance numbers (in films like Gabbar, Heroine, Dabnagg 2, Don, Billu, Agent Vinod) and now she adds yet another track to her list with 'Mera Naam Mary Hai' from the film Brothers.

While Kareena tries every bit to grab eyeballs with her latkas and jhatkas, hoot for her, Bebo somehow looks too sophisticated for the cheesy item number. Well, here are the five reasons that will make you also believe how Kareena looks a misfit in this song or she is simply not meant to do these numbers. Take a look:

Kareena flaunting her butt:Right in the beginning of the song, Bebo is seen exposing her butt as she sways to the tune,

Daawat-e-Ishq Music Review

Daawat-e-Ishq not only features the brand new jodi of Aditya Roy Kapoor (Aashiqui 2) and Parineeti Chopra (Ishaqzaade) but sees Sajid-Wajid (Dabangg) composing their first Yash Raj venture. Needless to say, music enthusiasts are curious to see what is in stock for us from this unlikely merger.

Daawat-e-Ishq’s songs have been penned by Kausar Munir while vocalists featured on the soundtrack include Sonu Nigam (‘Abhi Mujhme Kahin’ – Agneepath), Javed Ali (‘Tera Deedar Hai’ – Jannat 2), Sunidhi Chauhan (‘Sheila Ki Jawaani’ – Tees Maar Khan), Shreya Ghoshal (‘Chikni Chameli’ – Agneepath), Shalmali Kholgade (‘Pareshaan’ – Ishaqzaade) and Wajid (‘Jalwa’ – Wanted).

The title track opens the soundtrack and is an energetic qawaali/electronica by Javed Ali and Sunidhi Chauhan. Ali and Chauhan make a brilliant pair and complement the lyrical back and forth well. Munir’s expert grasp of Urdu is only surpassed by his impressive culinary innuendos. All in all, a powerful start to the soundtrack.

Kaanchi Movie Review

Once upon a time there lived a showman. He delivered films on larger than life canvases with heroic characters, melodramatic situations, grandiose dialogues and soul stirring music. We fondly recall the man who gave us iconic films like Karz, Ram-Lakhan, Saudagar, Pardes and many more! Sadly the showman never quite understood the evolution that happened to Indian cinema. He struggled to appeal to the changing tastes, the new generation’s demands and new age storytelling that Indian cinema had adopted. Today he continues to force the audiences to re-visit the style of cinema that once landed him with blockbusters however time and time again he gets rejected. Last Friday he tried again. And sadly last Friday, he failed again.

Subhash Ghai’s Kaanchi is a cry for help. It’s a cry for help from a filmmaker who has lost his way. It’s a cry for help from the

Sudhir Mishra questions portrayal of men in cinema

Sudhir Mishra questions portrayal of men in cinema
Mumbai, Dec 1: "Where are the soft, slightly unsure men with doubt and longing in their hearts?" asks filmmaker Sudhir Mishra, who feels men are not portrayed appropriately in Indian cinema.

Mishra, known for directing movies like "Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi", "Chameli", and "Yeh Saali Zindagi", took to micro-blogging site Twitter to express his views on Indian cinema's portrayla of men.

"Indian cinema can reflect on violence in society, but they need to also reflect that many films show violent men as cool. Of course, strong roles should be written for women, but what kind of male morons are we portraying in our cinema?".

Acclaimed Bollywood playback singer Sunidhi Chauhan proved on Friday night that she is indeed one of the best artists in the industry today.

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).

BollySpice’s favourite Sunidhi Chauhan songs

  • Bollyspice
To celebrate acclaimed Bollywood playback singer Sunidhi Chauhan’s UK tour, the team at BollySpice thought it would be cool to put together a special feature which looks at her greatest songs. Sunidhi is unsurprisingly in-demand amongst Bollywood filmmakers, who want her voice to be mimed by some of the hottest actresses in the industry. Her success is evident in the fact that she will be gracing the stage of the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London this Friday as part of her UK tour.

Having first acquired popularity by singing the songs for the film Mast (1999), Sunidhi is considered one of few who can use her voice to give it that provocative touch. She has sung to some of Bollywood’s most iconic tracks and has to some extent contributed towards the popularity of actresses like Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor and Bipasha Basu by lending them her voice in their films.
