A.R. Rahman talks Viceroy’s House music

18 February 2017 4:02 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Viceroy’s House, directed by Gurinder Chadha is releasing nationwide on 3rd March 2017 and stars Hugh Bonneville, Gillian Anderson, Huma Qureshi and Manish Dayal. The film tells the true story of the final months of British rule in India and its release will coincide with the 70th Anniversary of the Independence of India and the founding of Pakistan.

The film is accompanied by a beautiful and moving score, composed by Oscar and Grammy winning maestro A.R. Rahman. Speaking in a recent interview, Rahman references Viceroy’s House:

“Gurinder’s expectation was to have something very classic, very rooted and at the same time universal. I’ve used the sarangi, a strings and brass orchestra, a lot of flute — mainly classical instruments.”

The official soundtrack for Viceroy’s House coincides its release with the film and will be available to buy on all digital outlets on Friday 3rd March. The album »

Gurinder Chadha finds muse in Huma Qureshi

15 February 2017 6:14 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan made her Hollywood debut in 2004 with the film Bride and Prejudice, directed by the acclaimed Gurinder Chadha. The filmmaker will now be launching Huma Qureshi on an international platform, as she takes on a large-canvas film of epic proportion in her upcoming The Viceroy’s House.

While Gurinder Chadha has always been all praise for Aishwarya, referring to her as “a very sharp, intelligent woman who knows how to hold her own in a male-dominated industry” , the filmmaker has now found a favorite in Huma Qureshi, who makes her big Hollywood debut with The Viceroy’s House.

The film headlined by Hugh Bonneville, Gillian Anderson, Huma Qureshi and Manish Dayal is all set to premiere at the Berlinale 2017. Huma is no stranger to international festivals and with Viceroy’s House becoming an official selection at Berlinale 2017, the film becomes her third to be screened on a global »

Viceroy’s House: Two sides of the story emerge in these new character posters

14 February 2017 6:05 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Two new character posters have arrived for British drama, Viceroy’s House and we can’t help thinking they have a link to Valentine’s Day. With Gillian Anderson gazing lovingly at her Husband, Lord Mountbatten (Hugh Bonneville) on one side and the young lover’s, Jeet and Aalia cosying up to each other.

Related: Viceroy’s House Trailer and Poster

Viceroy’s House is set in a time where men were seen to rule their women and these posters depict this in a blatant manner with both Lord Mountbatten and Jeet in regal, honourable stances ever so slightly in front of the ladies. Even though fitting for the time, to portray this on promotional posters in the 21st century makes them feel dated. Oh and while we are here does anyone else, after watching our previous trailer post for Viceroy’s House, think Gillian Anderson has »

What Are You Watching?: Cops, gangsters, and monsters in Boston and beyond

12 January 2017 10:00 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

What Are You Watching? is a weekly space for The A.V Club’s film critics and readers to share their thoughts, observations, and opinions on movies new and old.

I watched both parts of Anurag Kashyap’s Gangs Of Wasseypur over the weekend—a tale of three Muslim crime dynasties from around the East Indian city of Dhanbad, corrupted by greed and revenge over the span of several generations. The story repeats itself from father to son for five and a half hours, the child growing up with the parent’s sins, adapting to be more vicious and violent. There is a sort of dance that the movie performs around its depiction of the gang lifestyle, alternating fantasy and demystification. What I like is the way Kashyap conceives the archetypal gangster as a mimic; from the 1940s to the 2000s, successive generations of the Khans—the protagonists of Gangs »

‘Dark Night’ Trailer and Poster: Tim Sutton’s Dreamlike Film About Gun Violence Arrives in Theaters Next Month

10 January 2017 1:56 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A year after premiering at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, Tim Sutton’s “Dark Night” is set to arrive in theaters courtesy of Cinelicious Pics. An elliptical quasi-documentary, the film brings to mind Gus Van Sant’s “Elephant” (and, for that matter, Alan Clarke’s “Elephant”) as it explores the day leading up to a tragedy that’s modeled in part after the mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado of 2012. Find the film’s trailer and poster below.

The trailer offers glimpses of the nonprofessional actors who make up Sutton’s cast and keeps viewers guessing as to who among them might be plotting violence as day slowly turns into night. Hélène Louvart (“Pina,” “The Beaches of Agnes”) shot “Dark Night,” and her cinematography is its most distinctive, arresting element — all mood and atmosphere, the film relies on »

Film Review: ‘Gurgaon’

5 January 2017 11:56 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A brooding crime thriller in which a kidnapping exposes the avarice, sibling jealousy, and murderous past that plague a property mogul’s clan, “Gurgaon” is another entry into the school of designer genre films from India that first drew festival attention through Anurag Kashyap’s prolific output. First-time director Shanker Raman, obviously a fan of Kashyap, shares the latter’s fascination with psychotic human behavior, but leaves tension on a low simmer while barely scratching the surface of characters’ vile motives. What’s more interesting is his insight into how extreme gender inequality is in Indian society. The film’s moody noir sheen may help it travel beyond the domestic market, where it stands small chance against mainstream entertainment.

Raman was an experienced Dp and wrote the feature screenplays for Indian films “Autumn” and “Frozen,” both non-mainstream family dramas with political nuance. For his directorial debut, he aspires to grander themes, »

J Hurtado's 12 Favorite Indian Films of 2016

2 January 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

2016 was a great year at the movies. The world of cinema has provided a tremendous amount of joy for which we should feel grateful. While that could apply to the world at large, it especially applies to the cinema of India, for whom 2016 was a banner year for tremendous cinema. Unfortunately for most, these films have largely gone unnoticed outside of the subcontinent, but if you're wondering what exactly you have to look forward to in catching up with this year, I'm here to help. Not only was this the most remarkable year for Indian cinema since 2012 (Gangs of Wasseypur, Miss Lovely, Aadukalam, Eega), but it's also the year that the world was brought a bit closer to Indian cinema through worldwide...
