Priyanka Chopra Jonas organises an Instagram live with the world’s global citizens answering questions asked by common people on covid-19

Published

on

Bollywood Queen and  Internet sensation who has made a remarkable place in Hollywood, Priyanka Chopra Jonas organises an Instagram live stream with the help of global citizen with Dr Tedros, the director-general of the world health organizations and Maria Van Kerkhove who is a technical lead for covid -19 and the world health organisation and Hugh Evans, CEO of the global citizen will also be available.

 

She starts by saying that an insane time is going on. Everybody’s life has turned upside down. It seems as if all this is a part of a movie but it’s not. She said that it has been 7 days  she and her husband, Nick Jonas, have been practising self-isolation and they are safe, healthy. Besides their crazy work schedule where every time there are so many people around them, they started practising social distancing.

Moreover, she said that it is confusing reading so much information on covid -19 online. But the question is how much of this information is accurate. Besides the actual information, the Internet is full of myths. And it is scary reading them.

 

Due to this, Priyanka is organising an Instagram live so that the common person can actually ask the people who are actually in frontline fighting the virus. This live stream will happen on Thursday, at 12:30 PST. She is going to stream it on her Facebook also.

 

As they say ” knowledge is power”. The more we know, the quicker we can work together to flatten the curve and fight this pandemic, which is so overwhelming and has caused life destruction to the world. 

 

At last, she thanks the technology because of which we can come on here and manage to find some togetherness and somehow not feel isolated. It’s a reminder that if something happens to one community it definitely affects another and another. She ends by sending love and care to all and would try that all our questions are answered.

Bollywood’s Deepika Padukone’s JNU Visit Backfires, Chhapaak Might Take The Fall

Published

on

After we see Bollywood showing their strength at Carter Road, Mumbai Deepika Padukone went to Jawaharlal Nehru University to express solidarity with faculty and students on Tuesday which many claims are just a PR tactic.

The actress was in Delhi to promote her film Chhapaak and later joins the protests at JNU against the violence that happened on campus on Sunday evening. She also meets Aishe Ghosh who is the injured president of the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union(JNUSU).

This gesture from a Bollywood star like her received significant attention considering Bollywood’s usual way of not taking a stance at all in light of protests held against Citizenship Amendment Act(CAA) or National Register of Citizens(NRC).

It begins with actress Sayani Gupta calling out the “selfie gang” on social media to issue statements. Alia Bhatt, Parineeti Chopra, Swara Bhaskar, Richa Chadha, Kokona Sen Sharma, Dia Mirza, Sonam Kapur, Huma Qureshi, Tapsee Pannu, and many from Bollywood are raising their voices against violence for an India that is secular and syncretic.

But this has backfired on Deepika as many claimed she did so for mere promotion. Deepika’s gesture being criticised heavily online for making a serious issue a part of a film promotion drive. These backlashes include a new protest online asking everyone to not watch her upcoming movie Chhapaak.

#boycottchhapaak is the second most trending topic in a twitter right now with around 458K tweets with people posting screenshots of booking cancellations for the movie. Many even resorted to talking ill about Ranveer Singh as he is Deepika’s husband or blocking and unfollowing her on twitter. Some even blame the movie for changing the name of the acid attack criminal from a Muslim name to a Hindu one to protect Muslims.

On the other hand, she also has support from many like Anurag Kashyap who said that’Women are Stronger beings’ and asking followers to prove him right by booking more tickets for the movie Chhapaak and by supporting people like her. She even receives support from Swara Bhaskar and Anubhav Sinha.

deepika-padukone

2019 highlighted the astonishing performances of celebrities like Ayushmann Khurrana, Vicky Kaushal, Tiger Shroff, Ananya Panday, Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi Pednekar. But all the fans were missing a few ever-green stars like Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, etc from the silver screen.

This year was totally owned by Akshay Kumar. Along with him, there comes Ayushmann and Shahid Kapoor.   Some top most films of 2019 like ‘Super 30’, ‘Bala’ and URI raised the bars of Bollywood.

A few stars that we missed on screen are:

  1. Deepika Padukone

Last seen in Padmavat, Deepika had no release in 2019. After her marriage, she was seen enjoying her personal life and doing some events but no movie of her came in 2019. We definitely missed her but to our relief, her upcoming movie Chapak looks promising.

  1. Shah Rukh Khan

King Khan of Bollywood, Shahrukh Khan treated 2019 as a silent year. Unlike other stars on this list, he hasn’t commented on his upcoming projects too. His last release was ‘Zero’ which did not perform well at the box office. After that, he wasn’t active in the industry, but he was seen spending quality time with his family. The rumour is, he will collaborate with Mollywood director Aashiq Abu for his next film will be scripted by National Award-winning scriptwriter Syam Pushkaran.

  1. Janhavi Kapoor

Bollywood Newbie Janhvi Kapoor did heart-stealing work in her debut film Dhadak. After ‘Dhadak’, she got busy with many projects for 2020 because of which, she had a quiet year at the box office. Her upcoming projects include ‘Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl’, ‘RoohiAfza’, ‘Dostana 2’ and ‘Bombay Girl”.

  1. Anushka Sharma

Kangana Ranaut as and in Thalaivi Movie First Look

Published

on

Kangana

Kangana Ranaut upcoming film Thalaivi is something people were looking forward to but it looks like the first look of this film is not getting appreciated by netizens. It seems that the poster has failed to make an impact and getting trolled mercilessly. If you don’t know, Thalaivi is a biopic of the late politician, Jayalalithaa – the former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. She passed away on December 5, 2016, because of a cardiac arrest. She was called ‘Puratchi Thalaivi’ which means a ‘revolutionary leader’.

 

The poster was released on Kangana’s Instagram handle and people can’t stop trolling Kangana and the filmmakers for showing poor prosthetics used on her face! Many people suggested keeping Kangana’s face as it is because all that is important is showing the life story, instead of making her look like Jayalalithaa.

The first poster was captioned as, “The legend we know, but the story that is yet to be told! Presenting #KanganaRanaut, in & as #Thalaivi. A film by #Vijay, arriving in cinemas on 26th June 2020.”

If you look at the poster, you can see Kangana in dark green cape with a border and a bottom, with a big bindi on her forehead.

A short teaser of the film was also released on YouTube. You can watch the teaser here.

Actor Arvind Swamy, best known for his roles in Mani Ratnam’s “Roja” and “Bombay”, will portray the role of late Tamil superstar and former Chief Minister MG Ramachandran in this film.

In the beginning, Kangana admitted that she was finding it difficult to learn the Tamil language for the film. She had to learn the language as per demand of the film’s script. Other than Tail lessons, Kangana got herself into Bharatnatyam classes for her role. She also spent a lot of her time on prosthetic makeup sessions.

The film “Thalaivi” is a multilingual and will release in Tamil, Hindi, and Telugu. A. L. Vijay is directing the film and the film is now scheduled to release on June 26, 2020.

On the work front, Kangana was seen in Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi and Judgemental Hai Kya this year. Next year she will be seen in Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s kabaddi film Panga and the action film titled Dhaakad.

The Tashkent Files Review : A Political Drama With Poor Execution

Published

on

The Tashkent Files

It is so easy to answer that what lies on 2nd October? Of course, because it is Mahatma Gandhi’s birth anniversary. Are you forgetting something important? No, it is not that Ajay Devgan went to Panaji with his family or something like that. For your information, 2nd October is the birth anniversary of Lal Bahadur Shastri too. As his birth anniversary is systematically ignored, so is the history and mystery behind his death. But Bollywood keeps nothing secret and try to touch every aspect and hence the movie The Tashkent files came into the picture.

The Tashkent files released on 12th April and got not so good response from the audience. It earned 4 Crores in 8 days. The film is based on the mystery behind the Indian former prime minister Lal Bahadur Shastri’s death. He died in Tashkent on the day after signing the Tashkent declaration due to a heart attack. (At least this is what ‘Authentic’ sources say) but his relatives and many other people denied that the heart attack was the reason for the death.

The story of this film is written and directed by Vivek Agnihotri.  The film features Shweta Prasad Basu,  Naseeruddin Shah and Mithun Chakraborty in lead roles. Shweta played the role of a young journalist who is working for a renowned news agency. She is accused of spreading fake news on Twitter. Her boss warns her to bring a trending topic in a week or else resign. On her birthday, she gets a call saying that the person on call will give her the scope and trending topic for her next news if she answers a few questions.  And that’s how the story of the film begins with ‘the mystery behind Shastri’s death’ as a scope. The acting of lead actors is nice, but the movie got poor reviews from critics and many are saying that the movie is politically inclined.

Speaking of story and plot, it is nicely told without engaging and blaming anyone directly, but some incidents seem baseless in the movie. The execution of the story is inconsistent. Surely, the film brought the past in front of everyone but it could have been done in a more theatrical way.

We would give 3 out of 5 stars to this movie.

Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota Movie Marks The Debut Of Bhagyashree’s Son!

Published

on

Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota

Vasan Bala’s Upcoming Bollywood film ‘Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota’ is written and directed by him.  Ronnie Screwvala is producing this film under his banner RSVP Movies. The film rotates around a bunch of weird characters. This film marks the debut of Bhagyashree’s son Abhimanyu Dassani. He is playing the role of Surya, the protagonist. He suffers from congenital insensitivity to pain. The story is about Surya’s try to win against a bunch of robbers. His formidable and fierce friend Supri helps him in his motive. Radhika Madan is playing the role of Supri.

Surya has already got a place in the Tinkle magazine and National Geographic Magazine for his not so usual role. The movie has humorous rap track Rappan Rappi. It also has around eight songs such as Tere Liye, Life Mein Fair Chance Kiska (Jimmy Mani Song), Dream Time, Kitthon Da Tu Superstar, Nakhrewaali, and Shaolin Sky.  Popular composer Karan Kulkarni directed the music for this film.

An inspiration for the story of Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota

A child inspired Vasan Bala to make this film and this is surprising. Vasan Bala met a child with congenital insensitivity to pain at a dental clinic. The kid was very insensitive to pain and he did not require anaesthesia during any process. According to Vasan, congenital insensitivity to pain means the person is born without pain receptors and hence, becomes insensitivity to pain. But the film highlights the fact that males who don’t feel pain are treated as superheroes by our society. But in real life,  it’s a health condition.

‘Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota’ also stars Gulshan Devaiah, Mahesh Manjrekar and Jimit Trivedi. Bala is paying a tribute to the filmmakers like Hrishikesh Mukherjee aka Hrishi-da known as the pioneer of middle-class cinema and the award-winning filmmaker Sai Paranjpye by using their middle-class environment in the backdrop.

The film premiered in the Midnight Madness section of the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, where it won the People’s Choice Award: Midnight Madness.  MAMI Film Festival screened this film and gave a standing ovation to Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota.

Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota will release on March 21, 2019. The film is getting big thumbs up from the critics already.

Badla Review : Taapsee and Big B Rocked It Again!

Published

on

As Bollywood is bombarding us with biopics and periodic dramas, the film Badla is like an amazing change. Trailer of the movie left us awestruck and we were waiting for this film to come out. Now that the movie is released, it got 3-4 stars by fans and critics.  Badla made the box office collection of 3 Crores on day 1. As there is a weekend coming, the growth in the business is expected. Today, Badla is the only movie released from Bollywood.

Badla is a gender-reversed remake of the superhit Spanish film Contratiempo. The movie stars amazingly brilliant Amitabh Bachchan and Tapsee Pannu. The film makes references to Mahabharata Characters like Lord Krishna, Arjuna, Draupadi, Dhritarashtra and Sanjaya when a retired advocate (Amitabh Bachchan) and an out-on-bail murder suspect (Taapsee Pannu). Amitabh Bachchan is the retired advocate who has won all the cases in his 40 years of career. Taapsee is portraying famous businesswoman who is being accused of the murder.

The film Manav Kaul in a special appearance. An old couple who loves theatre lives in a home in the woods which is played by Amrita Singh and Tanveer Ghani. The acting of Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu makes this movie classy but Amrita Singh also did her part very well. The dialogues of the movie are amazing and very well written. They engage the listeners and tangle them into suspense and thrill.

Badla is full of twists and turns and if you are a suspense lover, you will love this movie. The amazing part of the movie is, it has no songs that interrupt the fun and suspense. The story moves fast and that is really the need of the story. The setups and locales clearly suit the film.  The camerawork is done really well. Sujoy Ghosh did his part very nicely as far as direction is concerned. The people who have seen the Spanish version may not like the film.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh gave 3.5 stars to this movie and praised Mr Bachchan and Tapsee for their brilliant work. Basically, the duo of Big B and Taapsee rocked the screens again.
