“Udta Punjab Is The Most Original And Jolting Film Since Rang De Basanti” – Subhash K Jha

18 June 2016 12:32 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Udta Punjab

Starring Shahid Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Diljit Dosanjh

Directed by Abhishek Choubey

Who thinks of such a story to tell?! Only a mind that is either supremely screwed-up or stunningly sorted. In director Abhishek Choubey’s case, I’d go with the latter.

Udta Punjab is a work of contemporary art so audaciously unprecedented in its vision and execution of a subject that is topical and timeless, you wonder if Bollywood, as we love and hate it, is finally growing up.

On the other hand lest we forget, filmmakers in the past like Bimal Roy, Guru Dutt and Gulzar constantly prodded and pushed mainstream Hindi cinema into areas of darkness, not fearful of the unlit interiors of the human heart.

Abhishek Choubey takes this forward to an altogether new high, the politically empowered human drama of Bimal Roy’s Do Bigha Zameen (the migrant’s plight in the city, »

Sharman Joshi: “1920 London is true to the genre of a horror film”

7 May 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Actor Sharman Joshi will now be seen in 1920 London, which is a sequel to the 1920 trilogy (after 1920, and 1920: Evil Returns). Acting opposite him is Meera Chopra, who has done several films in the Telugu and Tamil film industry.

While Sharman has been around in the industry, with films like 3 Idiots, Rang De Basanti and Golmaal to his credit, for Meera Chopra, 1920: London is her big Bollywood break. “It’s a scary industry, and not easy to make it year. But after a year and a half, I finally got this film,” she says.

Sharman Joshi, however, comes from a theatre background. His father has been an actor, director and producer in Gujarati films, so it was a natural progression for him to get into the field.

“My first two films were like chalk and cheese: Godmother and Style. But over the years I have gotten quite realistic about my roles. »
