Music Review: Junglee

27 days ago  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Music Reviews  
EXPECTATIONS With the soundtrack of Junglee arriving on the day of the film's release, there has hardly been any awareness around the music. Moreover, the film is a jungle adventure and hence at best one expects composer Sameer Uddin to have come up with situational numbers. MUSIC There are only three songs in the album, and the first one is written by Anvita Dutt. Titled 'Fakeera Ghar Aaja', this one is about a man's homecoming and makes for a situational setting. With a decent sound to it, it has some functional rendition by Jubin Nautiyal and just about passes muster. Next to arrive is Kumar Suryavanshi written 'Garje Gajraj Hamare' and this one is an ode to elephants. It tries to be all cute and nice with a child accompanying Vidyut as they go around the village. However, the end result is hardly the kind that would make you feel like playing this Navraj Hans, Hamsika Iyer, Abhishek Nailwal and Gulshan Kumar sung number on loop. Kumar Suryavanshi is also the lyri..

Music Review: Luka Chuppi

one month ago  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Music Reviews  
EXPECTATIONS Well, this could be a record of sorts when an entire soundtrack of a film has been made out of recreated versions. However, this is what happens in case of Luka Chuppi which has five songs in there and each of these has been a hit in its original versions during the last few years gone by. Let's check these out. MUSIC The only song in the album which has been recreated from a Bollywood flick, 'Poster Lagwa Do' is based on 'Ye Khabar Chapwado Akhbar Mein' from Akshay Kumar and Urmila Matondkar starrer Aflatoon. This time around the singers at the helm of affairs are Mika Singh and Sunanda Sharma, and both come up with a very energetic outing. White Noise Studios is the force behind the new composition and lyrics, though this version could have done without the brief rap portion. Also the crescendo that picks around 'Ek Ladka Ek Ladki' is a bit odd and avoidable. Tanishk Bagchi, the man responsible for quite a few recreated versions during the last few weeks,..

It seems like the controversy between Kangana Ranaut and Alia Bhatt won't end anytime soon. The Manikarnika actress had called Alia's Gully Boy performance ‘mediocre’. After that, Kangana’s sister Rangoli Chandel, on Twitter, blasted Alia and Soni Razdan while hinting at their British citizenship and called them ‘non-Indians’. She even said that Mahesh Bhatt had thrown his shoe at Kangana during her early days in the industry. While Alia has chosen to silent on the whole controversy, recently at the Dadasaheb Phalke Awards, the actress said that she would choose to stay silent. She said, “Agar mai aisi hu, then my family is 10 times more mature and stronger than I am. Mujhe isme padna hi nahi hai. I just want to be happy, positive, work hard, be a better version of myself every day. Log kya kahe, log kya na kahe, I should not pay attention to it.

Salman Khan Vs Ranbir Kapoor: Brahmastra makers to push the release to avoid clash with Dabangg 3?

yesterday  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
Salman Khan is in the news again, after his Bharat trailer was released yesterday. He is on a start to finish schedule of Dabangg 3 currently because the makers want to complete the movie in a stipulated time and release it during Christmas this year itself. Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, on the other hand, have been shooting for Brahmastra for over a year now and the makers had originally locked  Christmas 2019 as their original date. There have been rumours that Ranbir and Salman will clash at the box office but looks like, this situation will not arise in the first place because the Brahmastra shooting is still not completed. Ayan Mukerji pitched the movie as a supernatural love story and therefore it is a given that the movie is heavy on VFX, they will take time to finish post-production. The Brahmastra shoot is likely to be completed in October which gives no time for the makers to finish the film and release date in December. Also, buzz is that Karan Johar does not want to take a..

Movie Review: KALANK lacks soul and is disappointing

7 days ago  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Movie Reviews  
At one time, multi-starrers were in vogue but of late, such films barely come out of Bollywood. A few franchises like GOLMAAL and HOUSEFULL have kept this tradition alive. Even DHAMAAL can be counted here and its recent instalment TOTAL DHAMAAL was one of the biggest multi-starrers in a long time as Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit got added to the star cast. KALANK goes one step ahead as it stars six actors, all of whom are big and prominent names in their own right. So does KALANK manage to be a memorable multi-actor flick, replete with ample entertainment and drama? Or does it fail to entertain? Let’s analyse. <img class="aligncenter wp-image-971649 size-full" title="Kalank Movie Review" src="https://www.bollywoodhungama.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Kalank-4-2.jpg" alt="Kalank Movie Review" width="720" height="450" /> KALANK is the story of lovers not destined to be together.

If entertainment journalism in this country has fallen to the armpit level we thought we have only have the over-zealous portals desperate to grab eyeballs, to blame. But now even the production houses and entertainment channels are encouraging their marketing team to put out fabricated story. A day ago the internet was ablaze with a story on Adnan Sami and Armaan Malik indulging in a spat on the sets of the talent-hunt show The Voice where they both serve as a judge. The truth is, there was no such incident at all on the sets of the show. One of the key dramatic personae of the whole fictional fracas that I spoke to called the whole incident a figment of the PR team’s imagination. “One morning they decided to boost the TRPs of the show (The Voice). So what do they do? They decide to plant a manufactured war between the two most popular judges of the show. Shockingly, Adnan Sami and Armaan Malik were not taken into confidence, probably because those who created this work of sickening ..
