A lot of us probably read about the flurry of star activity on Twitter recently when Bollywood stars reacted to Osama Bin Laden being killed at long last by American forces. While most in the Hindi movie industry hailed and cheered the death of an arch villain, there were some Bollywood celebrities who made some [...]
29 April 2011 has to be a date to be remembered, for a number of reasons. Whilst some of them are related to me in a big way, others, like this one, are a Bollywood-squeezed memory that will set standards and expectations for Friday’s to come. It has to be, probably, perhaps the most bombastic [...]
The year 2010 will probably be remembered as being the year of the success of new directors in Bollywood. There have always been new directors making their presence felt in Bollywood but last year many of them achieved a certain modicum of success and the audience sat up and took notice of their talent and abilities. Most of them were not part of any Bollywood royalty and yet they managed to storm a tightly held bastion.
The Guptas had their Golden era, and Bollywood, centuries later, is still waiting. But after a closer scrutiny, I am encouraged to finally sit up and take notice – is 2011 the year for Bollywood?

The combination of Anees Bazmai and Akshay Kumar has given us box office successes such as Singhh is Kingg and Welcome.

Unfortunately none of those aspirations have been realised. Thank You has [...]
For most people the words Dum Maaro Dum are synonymous with a sensual, swaying, yet drugged Zeenat Aman in Hare Rama Hare Krishna, her debut film. Today, Rohan Sippy has used the same phrase and also the same tune as the background of his new film, Dum Maaro Dum, being released on April 22nd. [...]
At the time of India’s independence, the leaders of the country were faced with the mundane task of opting for a certain method of development that newly-azad India would follow. In the tremor of the 1945 war, the world had been cracked into two: The Soviets, and the United States of Americans. India could choose [...]
The film industry is peopled with Khans – who wield clout and inspire devotion from legions of fans the world over. For the past couple of decades it is only the Khans who have been any kind of serious contender for the top leading men of the Hindi film industry, in terms of being powerful, [...]
Great promotional tactics and innovative release methods has already put F.A.L.T.U. ahead of its competition. Thankfully, it’s not a case of all noise and no show.

The show belongs to Abhishek Bachchan, from the start till the end. The classy-stylish act of his, present everywhere, impacting nowhere, does its work here. Check out the GAME hindi movie review!
They say success begets arrogance. In some cases, it also begets failure. Or else how do you explain the falling from the pedestal of some of the biggest directors of our times. In 2009 we would have sworn by their names, but 2010 turned the tables – the outcome was definitely not in their favor. [...]
