Prithviraj From Celebrations to Happy New Year

17 June 2013 9:48 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

That’s the order of the day for Prithviraj with his last film Aurangzeb fetching the actor quite a few positive remarks for his portrayal. Something that he is especially happy about since there was no mention that he was a southern industry actor playing a role in a Hindi film in those reviews. “Audience and critics felt I played my part well and this was a huge achievement.” After debuting in Aiyyaa as a Tamilian, the Malayalam actor is said to have made it a point to work on his diction and pronouciation which was noticed by all. But do you think he is taking it easy? No siree, the actor has moved on to his next film Happy New Year, Farah Khan’s long pending film which will see him costarring with yet another bigwig after the ensemble cast from Aurangzeb, Shah Rukh Khan.

Rani to play lead in YRFs Mardaani

10 April 2013 3:47 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Last year, we saw Rani Mukerji in two starkly contrasting roles with Aiyyaa and Talaash, while this year she will be seen in Bombay Talkies that celebrates 100 years of Indian Cinema as well as in a guest appearance in Chennai Express.

Rani now we hear has already signed her next, which will be directed by Pradeeep Sarkar.

The film titled Mardaani will feature Rani playing a cop. Sources state that this will be the boldest, grittiest subject Yrf have ever ventured into, where the story revolves around a female cop and will also showcase Sarkar's departure from the romance and family drama to a never done before raw and bold subject.

Mardaani, produced by Yash Raj Films is scheduled to go on floor towards the end of this year and will begin with a major portion being shot in Mumbai.

Previously, Sarkar has directed Rani in Laaga Chunari Mein Daag. »

Reflections 2012: Top 10 Actresses of 2012

13 January 2013 2:00 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

We can safely say that 2012 was finally a good year for women, while there will still be masala films that do not offer nearly enough scenes for their heroines like Asin or Sonakshi Sinha, who can clearly do better. 2012 was a stellar year for actresses to grab some layered and honest roles that reinvented their careers and made us sit up in surprise. We had a year with the best re-entry (we won’t call it a comeback) of a beloved actress, and countless more women who gave it their all. Thankfully, our list is back to 10 of the best performances of the year, here’s hoping 2013 gets even better for actresses.

10. Katrina KaifEk Tha Tiger/Jab Tak Hai Jaan

Katrina Kaif is consistently getting better over the years. While she can dance up a storm and support her Khans and a Kumar, this was the year for her to shine as an actress. »

10 January 2013 5:47 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

The bar rises every year for our debutants. 2012 was no different. The likes of the names you’ll soon read in our Top 5 Male Debutants list have once again increased the expectations audiences have from newcomers.

Here are the 5 newcomer actors who left us in awe of their talent in the year 2012 and who’s bright future in Indian cinema we simply can’t wait to see unfold.

Reflections 2012: Best Choreographed Songs of 2012

9 January 2013 10:29 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

While song and dance have always been a part of Bollywood, this year we saw a huge change in the way music was incorporated in films. A lot of the films used music in the background and there was actually very little dancing and not much room seemed to be left for innovative dance sequences. Yet, there was this ongoing trend of item numbers that filled up a lot of space.

Bollyspice takes a look at some of the most innovative and enjoyable choreography of 2012.

Ishq Shava/Ishq Dance’ – Jab Tak Hai Jaan

The newest and most modern choreography was seen in the only dance number in the movie Jab Tak Hai Jaan: ‘Ishq Shava” with choreography by Vaibhavi Merchant.

The sequence begins with the prelude called Ishq Dance, which is one of the highlights of the movie, where Katrina Kaif is seen dancing to different styles with different dancers. »

Reflections 2012: Top 50 Songs

8 January 2013 6:01 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Looking back at 2012 song-ically, it certainly was a year of cool sounds, new voices, groovy and groovin’ beats and over all some killer tracks. Many of the songs brought a new vibe to the music of the movies, songs flavored with new influences, and songs that we never would have thought we would hear in a Bollywood flick. There were classic beats that got us up and dancing not to mention the grooves of today that got us to move to the music. We met some new singers we can’t wait to hear more of and some of our favorites blew us away with outstanding vocals. 2012 was full of surprises and we enjoyed so many of them, 50 in fact and every single note! As always we loved these songs when they first came out but once we saw them in the movie we loved them even more! Check out »

Reflections 2012: Top 5 Female Singers 2012

7 January 2013 8:14 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

2012 was yet another fantastic year of music in Indian Cinema and BollySpice salutes the unsung heroes of our music industry, our playback singers. The following ladies were particularly instrumental in making 2012’s songs soar that little bit higher as well as reserving a special place in our iPods, playlists and ultimately our hearts.

5. Mamta Sharma

Mamta Sharma burst into our music players and blasted our speakers with ‘Munni Badnaam’ in 2010 and has not stopped to take a breath. 2012 saw her jump back into the arena with ‘Anarkali Disco Chali’ (Houseful 2),’Aa Re Pritam Pyare’ (Rowdy Rathore) and the recently unleashed ‘Fevicol Se’. Granted, these tracks were not world-dominating like Munni but they left no stone unturned when it came to entertaining the masses.

 

4. Nandini Srikhar

Nandini is bringing classic back to our Indian songs and how. Last year we could not get enough of ‘Bhare Nania’ (Ra-One). In 2012 our hearts »

Reflections 2012: Films you should have seen in 2012

6 January 2013 6:14 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

2012 turned out to be a year when a number of smaller or independent films made their way onto many Top Ten lists. But, as always, there are films that, for a number of reasons, risk being forgotten or overlooked, especially in a year where there are so many great films to choose from. Here are 13 films – 10 already released, 3 from the festival circuit – that you should have seen in 2012. It’s still not too late!

Jalpari: The Desert Mermaid (dir. Nila Madhab Panda)

It’s a massive shame that Nila Madhab Panda’s film didn’t get as much attention as his I Am Kalam, and also a shame that the film was released to DVD without English subtitles.  Because Jalpari: The Desert Mermaid, like I Am Kalam, weaves an issue into a story about, and for, children and families, and the message it carries (about the value of women and »

Aiyyaa director Sachin Kundalkar plans social comedy

6 January 2013 4:34 AM, PST | indicine | See recent indicine news »

With ‘Aiyyaa’, one of the biggest disasters of 2012, now behind him, director Sachin Kundalkar is now working on a social comedy and plans to release the movie this year.

Though the story of Aiyyaa was interesting and narrated a middle-class girl’s strange likeness for a guy’s body smell, it couldn’t amuse fans despite the presence of Rani Mukherjee.Read More »

Prithviraj

For many a fan this was our first look at the hottie from the South and boy did he open our eyes! Though his foray into Bollywood did not hit the mark, we certainly can see why and joined in with Aiyyaa to sigh, melt and fall in love! »

Reflections 2012: Who’s Hot and Who’s Not – Best and Worst Dressed Films of 2012

3 January 2013 8:00 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

It’s that time of the year were we like to review the best and worst films, fashion wise, of 2012.

Looking back on the year, movies have been pretty average in terms of fashion in the costumes, but some films did catch our eye while we where chomping on our popcorn and getting our filmi dosage in the cinema. On the other side, some films had us leaving the cinema in despair thinking what on earth was the designer/stylist thinking!

Scroll down to see which films made it onto our best-dressed list and which unfortunately did not, in this special edition of Whwn.

Best Dressed

5. Heroine

 

With Kareena Kapoor as the lead of this female-centric film, it was no surprise that the Bollywood Baadshah of fashion Manish Malhotra was brought into design her costumes for Heroine. Manish Malhotra once again proved why he is one of the stars favourite »
