This Friday will see the release of Yash Raj Films', Bewakoofiyaan, Legacy Film Productions & Subhash Sehgal's W and Ramsay Entertainment's Neighbours. Though the front runner is expected to be the Sonam Kapoor and Ayushman Khurana's Bewakoofiyaan, but it does not carry the hype of the singer-composer-actor's previous two releases (especially Vicky Donor). One feels that it will be the older release (read Queen) which will remain the preferred choice even this weekLast week too »
For someone who has been born and brought up in a filmy environment, having certain belongingness to Bollywood and its ilk comes naturally for Sonam Kapoor. However for Ayushmann Khurranna, an outsider from Chandigarh who has made his way into Bollywood via radio and television, there is still a sense of inhibition that he hasn't been able to shrug away.This is what the Vicky Donor star experienced during the initial days of filming Bewakoofiyaan when he started »

Don’t watch it for: Romantically moving, thought provoking moments
From the start of the film, it is made clear that their respective countries of origin will cause a problem for this couple – a problem spurred by the question of family acceptance.
So, let’s briefly begin with the issue.
To say that Pakistan and India, since the time of the tragic Partition of India, 1947, have seriously been at odds with one another is an understatement.
Beyond geographical boundaries, ongoing wars, the Partition has caused emotional and psychological scars for both “Pakistanis” and “Indians” – aspects that clearly still have consequences for a generation that did not “witness” the Partition first hand, »

It has been almost two years since Yami Gautam was seen in a Hindi film. While Vicky Donor was the surprise super-hit of 2012, the girl of many commercials is now out to create some mayhem with Total Siyapaa. One can well expect that moving from a subtle comedy to a loud outing must have been a major change already for Yami.Yes, Total Siyapaa is a comedy of errors but then it's a very situational comedy. It is not exaggerated though where somebody is trying too »
After London Paris New York, the forthcoming Total Siyapaa sees Ali Zafar (Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and Tere Bin Laden) take up the task of being singer, composer, lyricist and lead actor again. London Paris New York, while a little rough around the edges, was a well composed album with some endearing tracks. Naturally, there are reasonable expectations from the music of Total Siyapaa. The album is made up of 5 tracks, all featuring Ali Zafar, save for the duet which also features the vocal styling of Fariha Parvez. Lyrics have been penned by Zafar, Aqeel Rubi and Kumaar.
The album kicks off with the title track, Total Siyapaa, a quirky number with humorous lyrics intermingled with snippets of dialogue between the films’ characters. It is a relatively fun track with a bit of a retro vibe and touches of Punjabi which are quite catchy. It undoubtedly serves as a promotional »

2013 has offered some of the most memorable jodis to date, such as Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor in Aashiqui 2, or the mesmerising couple formed by Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone in Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela.
This year is looking equally exciting, as many couples will fill the screen in the forthcoming twelve months. Some actors will monopolize cinemas with several releases during the year, while other will save themselves for big projects. 2014 will bring many new couples, actors and actresses that will work together for the first time, so entertainment is assured. This is BollySpice’s list of the most exciting jodis to watch out for in 2014.
We start the list with Hasee Toh Phasee, produced by Karan Johar and Anurag Kashyap, and the first time we will have the opportunity to see Sidharth and Parineeti together onscreen. This romantic comedy »

2013 has been somewhat of a good year for Bollywood. There were the hits, the flops, the critically acclaimed and the critically panned releases that touched the hearts of millions of film fanatics. To celebrate the best which Bollywood has offered in 2013, BollySpice presents to you our official countdown list. We have made it all the more interesting by dividing the Best Films category by genre. This is largely because of the fact that we feel that films which belong to different genres cannot be included in one single list. For example, a comedy cannot be compared with a drama due to their content being significantly different. We hope you agree with our choices for 2013 and also hope that it will tempt you to watch some of these amazing releases if you have yet to see them!

Ayushamann Khurrana who made his debut in the hit film Vicky Donor followed up the film with Nautanki Saala. While his second venture performed less than expectedly, the actor remained unfazed. This year, Khurrana has three films on the anvil, Bewakoofian, Bombay Fairytale and Hamara Bajaj. However, his film Bombay Fairytale seems to have hit a hurdle. Apparently, the film which was earlier being produced by Reliance Entertainment and Guneet Monga has suffered a minor setback with Monga opting out of the film. The big budget film, which traces the story of the first Indian to make an aeroplane, will now be produced by Vishal Gurnani's company Trilogic Digital Media Limited. It is being said that Gurnani, who was on board right from day one, will now play a larger role in the film's production. While the first schedule of the film has already been shot in Mumbai, the second »
