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.
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. Once he started looking around, he could see them all around, Apart from the billboards he could find them in restaurants, on Kites, in gyms, in rickshaws. Some were using them as decoration while some to lure their fans or crazy customers,
And finally wait Is Over!! The hottest song of the season is out now. Yes we are talking about Kareena Kapoor’s latest item number, Mera Naam Mary, from the upcoming movie Brothers. After a super dhamakedar item song ‘Fevical Se’, the Bollywood Bebo is back with another sensational number.
In this song, Kareena is seen seducing Sidharth Malhotra and the song reminds us the fever of ‘Chikini Chameli’ from Hrithik Roshan’s 2012 superhit ‘Agneepath’.
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.
Brothers stars Akshay Kumar, Sidharth Malhotra, Jackie Shroff and Jacqueline Fernandez in lead roles. Directed by Karan Malhotra and Produced by Karan Johar, Hiroo Yash Johar and Endemol India,
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,
A glimpse at the newly released teaser of upcoming song 'Mera Naam Mary' from the film Brothers featuring Kareena Kapoor Khan, and you are easily reminded of Katrina Kaif, who sizzled in similar style in the song 'Chikini Chameli' from Agneepath. Kareena sways and swings her booty in the teaser, leaving us awestruck!
If Kareena's 'Fevicol Se' item number from Dabangg 2 was hot and sassy, 'Mera Naam Mary' appears to go a notch higher!
Filmmaker Karan Johar on the release of the teaser of first single from the much awaited film Brothers said in a statement issued to media, "Kareena couldn't have looked more elegant, she gives the song #MeraNaamMary a touch of her distinctive style and chutzpah."
The film stars Akshay Kumar, Sidharth Malhotra, Jackie Shroff and Jacqueline Fernandez. Directed by
The short teaser highlights every curve on Kareena’s body. Watch the teaser and tell us what you think.
Shraddha Kapoor: After winning over our hearts with her acting and singing in the film Aashiqui 2 and Ek Villain, is now making her dancing debut with Remo D'souza's Abcd 2. And looking at the promos this pretty petite has already impressed us!
Katrina Kaif:When she started out, Katrina was criticized for her dancing skills (besides her acting). Over the years her acting may not have enhanced but her dancing skills have gone several notches higher. Without having formal dancing lessons, Katrina has proved that she is a bombshell on the
Sunny Leone in 'Dholi Taaro'
She not only danced to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's 'Dholi Taaro', but also looked absolutely ravishing in a pink choli!
Deepika Padukone in 'Dilliwali Girlfriend'
Deepika Padukone's dance with her ex-flame wasn't the only enticing thing in this song. Her red choli was rather appealing to the eyes, and Deeps didn't mind glamourising them either. Don't believe us? Go watch the song!
Vidya Balan in 'Ooh La La'
This one could not be ignored, as Vidya herself flaunted not only her cleavage but also her choli!
Katrina Kaif in 'Chikni Chameli'
Yes, another videshi went completely desi with the choli,

The special guests of Saturday’s episode were Sonam Kapoor and Fawad Khan who had come to promote their latest film Khoobsurat. Fawad is also a Pakistani TV serial actor and so a lot of his own fans were present in the audience.
In this episode of Jhalak, the contestants would be dancing with a dance
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.
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
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?".
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.
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.
