Last month, during the promotions of his flick MISSION MANGAL, Akshay Kumar made a startling revelation. He said that he believes that success depends on 70% luck and 30% hard work. His statement surprised many but the fact is that many around the world of different nationalists, communities and even class believe a lot in luck and the concept of lucky charm.

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
Producer and former chairperson of the Central Board Of Film Certification Pahlaj Nihalani feels there is nothing like original cinema. He lashes at netizens who have been criticizing Sunny Deol’s son Karan’s debut film Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas as outdated. “What is outdated?” Nihalani demands to know. “What was unfashionable yesterday is trending today. And what is considered outdated today would be in vogue tomorrow. It’s a cycle. And all Indian cinema is based on just a handful of ideas. The style of putting across those ideas keeps changing, but the ideas remain the same.” Nihalani points out the example of the recently released Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Dream Girl which, he says, bears a resemblance to an earlier film. “This whole idea of a man seducing men by impersonating a woman’s voice on the phone was done in my film Shola Aur Shabnam 29 years ago. In that film Govinda cons Anupam Kher by speaking in a woman’s voice.” Nihalani hastens to point out that he isn’t accusing the make..

Subhash K Jha speaks about Dream Girl

8 days ago  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
Way back in the 1977 when ‘Dream Girl’ meant Hema Malini, Dharmendra sang Anand Bakshi’s truly romantic line ‘Kissi Shaayar Ki Ghazal, Dream Girl’…. 42 years later the ceaselessly enterprising Vijay Raaz plays a self-styled shaayar who bores everyone with his cheesy lines, his own wife being his prime victim. The potty-level poet is one low life among many in a film that tells you its okay to seek dubious companionship when loneliness it at its peak. There is something inherently amusing about people being forced into roles that they were not born to play, Ayushmann Khurrana has lately mastered the art of being cornered by a corny karma… Or, if it not his karma then someone close to him, like his Dad in Badhaai Ho who impregnates his mom at an age when parents are supposed to go on teeth yatras. In his new film ‘Quality Hero’ Ayushmann’s father (the very talented Annu Kapoor) plays a father who embarrasses his son by falling in love with a coquettish suggestive voice.

From Andhadhun and Badhaai Ho to Article 15 and now Dream Girl, the past year has probably given him more than he could ask for. Amid all the fame and flashlights, however, he has a clear vision as to what he does and does not want to do. In a recent interview, the actor opened up on the kind of films he will never do. Now, it's a crucial thing for an artist to know what stands opposite to his values. Ayushmann says he is all in for progressive films but will never be a part of regressive cinema. He cited the example of Dream Girl, which, despite being set on the backdrop of 90's, was never out of context. That's a good thing to come from a popular actor, given that we're fighting tons of regressive values in cinema as well as other walks of life right now!

Music Review: Dream Girl

11 days ago  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Music Reviews  
EXPECTATIONS Though Ayushmann Khurranna's upcoming release is titled Dream Girl, one doesn't expect a romantic soundtrack here. Reason being that even with Nushrath Bharucha as the leading lady, this Ekta Kapoor and Raaj Shandilyaa film isn't really a love story and instead a comedy about a man who mimics the voice of a woman. Hence, one expects a situational fun score by composers Meet Bros who are joined by lyricist Kumaar. MUSIC This is what one gets right at the onset too as Amit Gupta croons 'Radhe Radhe' which turns out be a fun song about Radha-Krishna love story. Ayushmann Khurranna gets into a full-on fun mood with this song which is also his biggest when it comes to the stage, setting and the canvas. In fact the manner in which this song is composed and orchestrated, it also reminds one of the kind of music that Sajid-Wajid created at the turn of the millennium. A good foot tapping number that also sees a good remix version, courtesy DJ Harshit Shah. There is ..

Kartik Aaryan to play gay character in Dostana 2

12 days ago  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
It is a sign of Indian cinema’s maturation that  leading men are no longer apprehensive about playing gay characters. While the taboo broke long back in the West, Indian cinema took a while to grow up in matters regarding sexual orientation. Kartik Aryan may well be the mainstream star of  Bollywood to play a full-fledged gay character in a Hindi film. If sources are to be believed, Kartik and newcomer Lakshya play gay characters in the sequel to Karan Johar’s 2008 hit Dostana. Says a source, “In Dostana, Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham were only pretending to be gay. In Dostana 2, Kartik and debutant Lakshya play gay character.” It remains to be seen how much maturity Dostana 2   will display in dealing with a theme that’s still raw  new and relatively forbidden for Indian cinema.

We are not too much in the media space, so I guess it slipped our attention. Last year, during the Me-Too movement, mention of this case came up.

No kiss for Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
Ever since Salman Khan and Sanjay Leela  Bhansali parted ways, there has been many speculative articles as to why the creative separation occurred. One of the theories for the  misadventure doing the rounds is that there was a  kiss in the script that Salman refused to do. However, a source close to Sanjay Leela Bhansali laughs off the kiss theory. “First there was no kiss to begin with. And even if there was, Salman would have known about it from the start.” It is a commonly known fact in the Indian entertainment industry that Salman doesn’t kiss or indulge in any overt intimacy with his leading ladies. “Every filmmaker knows that Salman doesn’t kiss on screen. Having said that, if Sanjay Bhansali could  get Amitabh Bachchan to kiss Rani Mukerji in Black  as it was  the dire need of the script, then why would Salman not agree to a kiss if the need arises? However, there was no kiss at all in Inshallah. This is just a wild stab in the dark,” says  the source. Salman Khan’s no-intimacy..

SHOCKING! Prabhas was paid NO MONEY for Saaho

2 days ago  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
Saaho seems headed towards major disappointments for all concerned, most of all Prabhas who has apparently not been paid a penny. Says a source, “The producers have borrowed heavy amounts of money from the market. And Prabhas has signed as guarantor for almost Rs. 50 crores. This means he will have to do some films for free to pay back the money, if Saaho fails to generate substantial revenues. The interest amount on the film is Rs 78 crores. Prabhas will probably not get a rupee. Instead he will have to be responsible for the money that has been borrowed. UV Productions are looking at selling property to pay back the Saaho investments.” Right now the financial prospects of Saaho are looking bleak as audiences everywhere have expressed a deep disappointment with the product. Said to be budgeted at Rs 370 - 380 crores, we are hoping a miracle would salvage what looks like one of the biggest disasters of Indian cinema.
