“Gali Guleiyan Is A Disturbing Masterpiece” – A Subhash K Jha Review

Gali Guleiyan

Starring Manoj Bajpai, Ranveer Shorey, Neeraj Kabi, Shahana Goswami, Om Singh

Directed by Dipesh Jain

Rarely does the location serve as an antagonist. In most films the environment that nurtures the plot and the characters is captured with affection.

Not so in Gali Guleiyan. It is the first film I’ve seen that doesn’t romanticize the location that nurtures the characters’ innermost fears of being trapped in the environment that breeds only stagnancy.

Old Delhi, Chandni Chowk is the villain of debutant director Dipesh Jain’s haunting parable on desolation and self-destruction. Manoj Bajpai has portrayed loneliness before with remarkable resonance and restrain in Hansal Mehta’s Aligarh. Here it is a quality of exacerbated desolation conveying such ennerving decreptitude that we soon realize we can’t trust Khudoos (Bajpai) to tell the truth to himself, let alone to his only friend Ganeshi or to us, the

Manoj Bajpayee wins best actor at Nyiff: “Gali Guleiyan has improved me as an actor”

Manoj Bajpayee has always stood out for his challenging choice of roles. From movies like ‘Satya’, ‘Pinjar’ and ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ to his recent ‘Aligarh’, his performances have remarkably raised the bar of acting in the industry. The actor has now bagged the award for best actor at the prestigious New York Indian Film Festival for his Hindi psychological drama – Gali Guleiyan.

Starring Barun Sobti, Shahana Goswami, Avinash Tiwari, Rasika Duggal, Nakul Bhalla, Pallavi Batra, Vishal Malhotra, Jay Upadhyay, Shiv Subramaniam

Written & Directed by Milind Dhaimade

Once in a while in my long career as a movie fanatic I come across a sparkling gem that reminds me there’s still so much to see, so many places to go, for Indian cinema. First-time feature filmmaker Milind Dhaimade takes us into places where we all have visited at one time or another.

And I don’t mean only Mumbai which like many memorable films stands a silent hero in this film about unsung heroism.

Dhaimade—God bless his creative juices that flow in the narrative like a stream gurgling through a craggy mountain—takes us to places in the heart where we go quite often in seclusion but don’t really wish anyone else to know. The oddly entitled

Shraddha Kapoor to sing a third song for Rock On 2

Shraddha Kapoor to sing a third song for Rock On 2
Hailing from a family of musicians, it wasn't surprising to see Shraddha Kapoor pursue her passion for music. The actress decided to turn playback singer for a few popular tracks in her previous releases and with her playing a musician in her forthcoming release, Shraddha Kapoor is more than happy to sing for more than a single track in Rock On 2. From what we hear, she is so happy about her role as a rock band member in Rock On 2 that she decided to sing a third song whereas she was asked to playback only for two. Apparently, after a detailed discussion with producer and co-actor of Rock On 2, Farhan Akhtar, it was decided that Shraddha will be singing one more song for the film which will also be picturized on her. However, we hear that this was a last minute decision and the team rarely got any time to prep for the same.
