Welcome Back Movie Review

  • Bollyspice
You just know if over-the-top ridiculous movies are your kind of thing. If you’re not one of those people, you’ll find justification for your dislike in bits of Welcome Back that just try too hard. But if you are a lover of rapid-fire absurdities, you’ll mostly giggle and chuckle as the plot becomes increasingly convoluted.

Overall, Welcome Back is exactly the kind of ridiculous, zingy stuff you expect from writer-director Anees Bazmee, with the right amount of nods to other films (Bunty Aur Babli, Ram Lakhan and Pk, to name a few), insults (personal favorite “moochwala bean bag”) and physical gags. But the humor isn’t always as smoothly sustained as in the original Welcome, and on occasions, perhaps not unexpectedly, the movie tries reaching too far and goes well past the gleeful “did they really go there?” disbelief into “why did they go there?” disbelief.

In Celebration of Shiamak in the Movies!

Shiamak is known as the Guru of Dance, and has choreographed some of the best dance pieces for stage and screen. To celebrate the choreographer’s birthday, we thought we would shine the light on his work in films! He truly has an eye for creating incredible creativity with his choreography on screen and we know you will enjoy watching every one.

‘Dhoom Again’ – Dhoom 2

The huge success of Dhoom 2 helped to solidify Hrithik Roshan’s career and no doubt his remarkable dance performance in the opening song ‘Dhoom Again’ showed him at his finest. Shiamak was of course responsible for the jaw-dropping choreography that can be seen throughout the song. It’s bold, edgy and something which we have never really seen in Bollywood before. Kudos to Shiamak on giving the song a big ‘dhoom!’

Celebrating Rani Mukerji! A look at some of our favorite things!

Queen of Bollywood, Queen of Hearts, Dil Ki Rani are just some of the words synonymous with Rani Mukerji. She debuted back in 1996 with the film Raja Ki Aayegi Baarat, which tanked at the box office. People started writing her off even before she emerged. But then came the turning points of her career, in the form of Ghulam and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai in 1998, and she proved that she’s here to stay. While Ghulam gave her the title of ‘Khandala Girl’, while Kuch Kuch Hota Hai made people take notice of this amazing actor who had the ability and talent to stand her own ground in front of superstars like Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. She went onto win lots of accolades for both her films and there was no turning back. With her impeccable talent and infectious spontaneity, she ruled the industry and people’s hearts for several years.

From Ramp-to-Road: Aki Narula behind Alia Bhatt’s transformation in Highway

Actress Alia Bhatt is all geared up for the Highway journey, sans premium labels and make-up. Highway is set in six different states and captures the journey of two completely opposite people who are thrown together by fate. Alia had no qualms in donning a contrasting look and readily accepted the transformation, crafted by ace fashion designer Aki Narula.

The designer, who set new trends with the colored kurta in Bunty Aur Babli and got back Nehru caps in Rockstar, has used an interesting approach to design the clothes of the cast. The designer has insistently maintained the margins of realism and reasoning for every outfit used in the film. Many clothes were borrowed from the residents of tiny places like Kalpa and Reckong Peo in Himachal Pradesh, where the film was shot. The actors had absolutely no inhibitions and enthusiastically tried all that was suggested.

Kill Dill starts after Ram Leela and Gunday - Shaad Ali
Shaadi over, Shaad Ali is gearing up to direct Kill Dill while his other dream project, a bio-pic on his legendary grandmother Lakshmi Sahgal, is in the scripting process. Research on the Sahgal script is taking longer than expected. "I am treating my grandmother's bio-pic as a family film. Both my parents would be actively involved in the entire process of making that film," informs Shaad a week after his wedding. The heartening news is that Shaad's father Muzaffar Ali would be actively involved with Kill Dill. We learn that Shaad has been bouncing the script off his father regularly and incorporating a lot of the senior Ali's humour into it. Says Shaad, "Not many people know this. But my father possesses a wicked sense of the comic. In fact we share a common sense of humour. My father is a very funny guy. I've also got my mother (Subhasini Ali Sahgal) into Kill Dill.
