Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
Well, we all associate John Abraham with bikes, courtesy the Dhoom series. After the popularity of the film, we have often seen the actor confess about his love for the beasts that he likes to take a spin in on the streets. And there have been reports floating about the actor going on midnight rides. But all that aside, it is also an undeniable fact that John’s love for automobiles has also made him quite knowledgeable in the field and now the CEO of Mahindra, Anand Mahindra thanked John for inspiring his new range. A day ago, Anand Mahindra along with Anupam Thareja and Boman Rustom Irani came together to revive and unveil the new range of Jawa bikes. During the launch event, Anand revealed about the story about how this idea came into being but we didn’t expect that it would have a Bollywood connection. No points for guessing that the connection was John Abraham indeed. As he started off with the tale of how Anupam had approached him with the idea of reviving Jawa bikes, was when An..

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
Shah Rukh Khan may be King Khan but his box office records have not be good. In the past few years, SRK has been unable to create his magic at the box office. With Dilwale, Fan, and Jab Harry Met Sejal, the actor has had no luck when it came to numbers.

Speaking about the same, Shah Rukh Khan recently opened up about the failure of his film. Shah Rukh Khan, spoke to a leading daily where he admitted that he has let people down with Jab Harry Met Sejal which was an utter flop. But, it wasn't his intention to let anyone down.

On the work front, Shah Rukh Khan will be next seen in Zero which is being helmed by Aanand L Rai.

Movie Review: Pihu

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Movie Reviews  
The most indispensable part of parenting, especially during the initial years, is supervision. It’s impossible that any parent would let the child go off their sights or that of the guardians. The fear that their kid might get hurt is forever looming over their heads. Vinod Kapri’s PIHU plays on this idea. It attempts to throw light on what happens when a child is let loose with nobody to look after, in an urban dwelling. The premise is quite intriguing, more so because it’s based on a true story. So does PIHU manage to give a nail-biting experience to the viewers? Or does it fail in its endeavour? Let’s analyse. <img class="aligncenter wp-image-921807 size-full" title="Movie Review: Pihu" src="http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Movie-Review-Pihu-005.jpg" alt="Movie Review: Pihu" width="620" height="450" /> PIHU is the story of a toddler trapped in a house.

21 hours ago  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
While the exact guest list for the ‘Wedding Of The Year’ (with due apologies to Priyanka and Anushka) is unknown, it is very clear that hardly anyone from Bollywood actually made it to Lake Como. This was a decision taken by the couple, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone in the final week before their marriage and in fact their close friends from the film fraternity advised them to exclusively invite their non-Bollywood relatives and friends. A source close to the development informs, “Ranveer and Deepika were keen to have a handful of close friends among the invitees at the wedding. Shah Rukh Khan, Karan Johar, Rohit Shetty and Sanjay Leela Bhansali were invited. But they suggested to the couple that it would be better if Bollywood was completely blocked from the wedding. Inviting a few from Bollywood would make the rest restless.” This explains the zero-presence of Bollywood at the Lake Como wedding. The handpicked guests were treated like royalty.

Movie Review: Mohalla Assi

yesterday  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Movie Reviews  
Globalization has brought the world closer. But a section of people, who are very rooted and swear by their age-old traditions and values, feel threatened by it. They always fear the Westerners are here to ruin their ancient tradition and that would mean a loss of identity. Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s MOHALLA ASSI majorly talks about this aspect. Based in Varanasi, which is also a hot bed for political discussions, this film also has a political and communal colour to it. The film was stuck at the Central Board of Film Certification for a few years and it was passed by the High Court recently. This controversy has got the film some traction. So does this controversy and content help MOHALLA ASSI in making a mark? Or does it turn out to be a disappointing fare? Let’s analyse. <img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-921644" src="http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Movie-Review-Mohalla-Assi-IMG.jpg" alt="Movie Review: Mohalla Assi&q..

“Why should I not stand by Nawaz… just because he is a man?” - Kubbra Sait defends Nawazuddin Siddiqui

3 days ago  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
The feisty talented Kubbra Sait, who made a big impact with her role as the doomed transgender Kukoo in the Netflix series Sacred Games, has come out in open support of Nawazuddin Siddiqui after actress Niharika Singh accused him of sexually inappropriate behaviour. Kubbra says she is being hounded and trolled for her stance. “But I don’t care about those who want me to say what they want to hear. Why should I not stand by Nawaz... just because he is a man? Do men always have to be in the wrong? It may be the politically correct thing to demolish the reputation of a man accused by a woman. But where is the proof? You can’t rant against someone and be taken seriously. If she (Niharika Singh) said Nawaz was a  bad actor, there would be his body of work to disprove her. But how does one prove a man’s guilt or non-guilt when a woman accuses him of sexual misconduct?” Kubbra sees Niharika Singh’s outburst as a personal relationship gone wrong. “You can’t pull a relationship out of its pers..

Former CBFC chairperson Pahlaj Nihalani says he is very worried about the way the CBFC is currently functioning under its current chairperson Prasoon Joshi. “He’s an absentee chairperson. So many producers have complained that he is never in office. Mr Joshi needs to be answerable to all producers whose films are submitted for certification, and not just to  his chosen friends. He is hardly ever in office, so producers who have problem with the certification  don’t know where to go. Not everyone is as privileged as Aamir Khan,” says Nihlani sardonically. He is all set to file an RTI against the CBFC. “My questions are simple - if  Mr Prasoon Joshi who is  the chairperson of the CBFC is rarely seen in the CBFC office then who takes all day-to-day decisions on his behalf? And how can we have a functional efficient censor board when its chairperson is busy with other things? As a producer and the man who occupied Mr Joshi’s chair before him, I have the  right to know about the functionin..

In Dhoom 3, Katrina Kaif barely had a song and a few dialogues. She had admitted she did the role to get a chance to work with Aamir Khan since she had already worked repeatedly with the other two Khan superstars. Apparently, Aamir and his director Vijay Krishna Acharya had made Katrina a promise that she would be given a far more substantial role in their next film together. It looks like promises are made to be broken in our entertainment industry. In the just-released Thugs Of Hindustan, the Aamir - Acharya team has again been very unfair to Katrina, reducing her to a dancing prop with barely a mouthful of dialogues. The other leading lady Fatima Sana Shaikh has much more elaborate role. Says a source in the know, “In fact, Katrina’s role was meant to be a guest appearance.

Makers of Akshay Kumar - Vidya Balan starrer to meet women behind Mangalyaan mission space programme

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
It is known that Akshay Kumar is set to reunite with Pad Man director R. Balki for a film based on India's 2013 space programme of Mangalyaan mission. He will be starring alongside Heyy Baby co-star Vidya Balan. But, ever since the project has been announced, there have been comparisons made to Oscar-nominated Hollywood film, Hidden Figures which starred Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe in leading roles. But, it seems like the comparisons made between the two films are not accurate. In a bid to remain very true to the story, the makers will reportedly meet the women involved in India's 2013 space programme of Mangalyaan mission. Hidden Figures was a story about an all-black group of female mathematicians who were emancipated after working for the space mission for NASA. Meanwhile, Mangalyaan film will focus on the women scientists whose picture went viral after the success of Mars Orbiter Mission.

Hrithik Roshan took to Instagram to share some unseen footage from Krrish on the five year anniversary. "Do you ever feel terrified when you think about the distance between where you want to be and where you are? Krrish in many ways for me is the struggle, aspiration and endeavor of wanting to travel the length of that distance. When my dad thought of the idea of Krrish, the first thing I felt was doubt, uncertainty and incapable, I was simply afraid, and the second thing I felt was absolute terror at the thought of not doing it because I was afraid. So we went ahead and took the fear along with us for the ride. What we lacked in budget, technology, specialization and resou..

Music Review: Dassehra

21 days ago  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Music Reviews  
EXPECTATIONS It was many years ago when Neil Nitin Mukesh had signed Dassehra. The film was made during the time when the likes of Rowdy Rathore and Action Jackson were in vogue. However the release was delayed and now the film is finally arriving. One expects primarily situational numbers and an item number or two by composer Vijay Verma and lyricist Rajesh Mànthan. MUSIC Dussehra title song 'Hua Shankhnaad' kick-starts the album and while one would have expected a high decibel energetic piece right at the onset, the one that arrives is just about ordinary. Kailash Kher isn't really in his characteristic form here and the song turns out to be just about fair with some sort of situational appeal. Next to arrive is a classical number 'Ae Ri Mai Re' which is rendered by Ustad Rashid Khan and one ends up wondering if this is the right song in a right film. A song with sad undertones to it, this one just doesn't fit into the commercial arena of Dassehra. In fact unless you are ..
                 

Music Review: Namaste England

28 days ago  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Music Reviews  
EXPECTATIONS There were good expectations from the music of Namaste England due to multiple reasons. First and foremost this is a romantic musical which gives ample scope for good music. Moreover, it is also second in the franchise that was started by Namaste London, which means expectations are manifold. Thirdly, the film is directed by Vipul Shah who has good ear for music, something that he has demonstrated right since the days of Aankhen. With Mannan Shah as the composer, one picks up this soundtrack which has as many as seven songs. MUSIC The album kick-starts on a winning note with Atif Aslam leading the show for 'Tere Liye'. A kind of quintessential Bollywood romantic number that time and again works, this one has good variation going for it right from beginning till the conclusion of its five and a half minutes duration. A catchy track, it also has newcomer Akanksha Bhandari chipping in for a while and making a fair impression. This one can be heard on a loop for s..

Music Review: Jalebi

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Music Reviews  
EXPECTATIONS It has been a while since Bhatts came up with a musical love story. There was a time when every film of theirs used to have chartbuster music regardless of genre, be it romance, horror or crime. However, now that they back after a hiatus, they have roped in multiple composers [Samuel & Akanksha, Javed-Mohsin, Tanishk Bagchi, Jeet Gannguli, Abhishek Mishra] and lyricists [Rashmi Virag, Prashant Ingole, Manoj Kumar Nath, Kunaal Vermaa and Mehmood Arfat] to do the job. Since the film features a newcomer male lead [Varun Mitra] along with relatively new entrant leading lady [Rhea Chakraborty], one waits to see what does the team have to offer. MUSIC Jubin Nautiyal sings to the tune put together by Samuel & Akanksha which goes as 'Tum Se'. The song has just the kind of words and music that comes with the Bhatts territory. With a Western touch to it that is fused with contemporary Hindi film music, 'Tum Se' turns out to be a decent hear though one would have..

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Music Reviews  
EXPECTATIONS You expect rustic music to be the core of Pataakha. After all, the promo has conveyed loud and clear that the film is attached to the roots. Moreover, with Vishal Bhardwaj and Gulzar coming together, you expect certain sound in Pataakha. That said, you are also sure that it would be tough to find any true commercial ingredients in there since the film too has an offbeat feel to it.   MUSIC As expected, it is Rekha Bhardwaj who kick-starts the proceedings for Pataakha. She sings 'Balma' and right away the listener is introduced to a rustic sound. Lyrics too are on the same lines and as a matter when Sunidhi Chauhan comes on board, her voice is hardly recognizable. With a 60s feel to it, the song just about introduced the listener to the milieu of Pataakha but doesn't quite make you stick around. Vishal Bhardwaj brings himself behind the mike for the title song 'Pataakha'. This one too has a 60s feel to it and one can almost imagine a Biswajeet or a Joy Mukher..

Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Deepika Padukone have much to be proud of. Their collaborative effort was heard resonating all the way at Trafalgar Square in London this Diwali day. The magnificently-choreographed ‘Ghoomar’ number from Bhansali’s Padmaavat was performed by hundreds of Asian girls at the historic site on Diwali day. A source close to Bhansali saw this as a triumphant moment for the entire team. “All the suffering and pain that we went through now seems worth it. While Padmaavat was being made we were targeted on so many occasions. Even the song ‘Ghoomar’ that has been embraced across the world was condemned by some. We were asked to cover up Deepika’s midriff. It is very encouraging to see the same song that caused offence to some, being embraced so universally. We are blessed.” Speaking about the song on another occasion Sanjay Leela Bhansali had said, “What better illustration of our prime minster Narendra Modiji’s ‘Make In India’ policy? I feel our culture is so rich and ..

Bigg Boss 12 is slowly but steadily gaining masses’ interest. It's been more than a month since it started and a lot of controversies have gone down already. Latest one being Shivashish planning to run away from the house. So apparently, he had to listen to lot of criticism from every one including Salman Khan during Weekend Ka Vaar and he felt he should leave because his self respect was compromised in the house.

Just last week, the trailer of the Sushant Singh Rajput – Sara Ali Khan starrer Kedarnath was released. While the trailer did leave an impact, a few seem to have taken an objection to the film. In fact, priests from the Kedarnath shrine have objected to the film and demanded that the same be banned. As per their demand, the Sushant – Sara starrer should see a blanket ban for apparently hurting religious sentiments of Hindus. Talking about the same Vinod Shukla, chairman of the Kedar Sabah, an organization of the priests in Kedarnath stated that they would commence an agitation if their demands are not met and the film is allowed to release. In his statement, Sabah claims that the film hurts Hindu religious sentiments by promoting the concept of ‘love jihad’.

There is nothing personal in the times where anything can go viral with a click of a few buttons. It is especially bad if you are a celebrity. Few trolls leaked Shruti Hassan's sister Akshara's pictures online in utter distaste. This is surely a breach of privacy, to put out personal pictures without the permission of the person. In these pics, Akshara is seen posing in her lingerie but the authenticity of these images have not been verified yet. There is no official statement from the young actress about this yet. But we do hope that a quick action is taken on this matter. #AksharaHaasan #ShrutiHaasan pic.twitter.com/4GZ5jIPwEX — Actress Deewana (@ActressDeewana) November 2, 2018 LEAKED - HOT SELFIES of SHRUTI HAASAN SISTER AKSHARA HAASAN LEAKED - HOT PHOTOS INSIDE read more: https://t.co/I0QgtjG30C pic.twitter.com/tcNethbyug — APHerald (@apherald) November 2, 2018 Before this, Amy Jackson's phone was leaked and her pictures were unethically put out too.

Music Review: Thugs Of Hindostan

14 days ago  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Music Reviews  
EXPECTATIONS One has huge expectations from the music of Thugs of Hindostan since this is inarguably the biggest release of 2018 so far. Moreover, with lead cast of Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif, one expects a blockbuster score no less. Ajay-Atul, after creating some beautiful melodies in Dhadak, come together again for Thugs of Hindostan which has lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya. MUSIC The soundtrack kick-starts with a celebration number 'Vashmalle' which has the sound of 'aa ra ra ra' right at the beginning, hence bringing on the retro appeal. This one has the kind of sound that one associates with a period drama and the manner in which Sukhwinder Singh and Vishal Dadlani sing this one justifies the theme. Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan come together for this number which is situational at best. Yes, the song has been orchestrated very well but this one is not the sort of song that can be heard repeatedly in a standalone mode. There is certain grandeur in the way 'Surai..
                 

Music Review: Jack And Dil

17 days ago  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Music Reviews  
EXPECTATIONS One expects a youthful fun score in Jack & Dil, given the fact the film is touted to be a fun comedy revolving around an extramarital affair. As is the trend, multiple composers, lyricists and singers come together for the five songs in the film. MUSIC Composer Arko puts together an entire song around 'chai' with lyricist Vayu giving it the title 'Chuski'. A fair number that has Arko coming behind the mike along with Sonu Kakkar, it makes one wonder how the song would be placed in the narrative and further to that how would it have any sort of shelf life once the film is off the theatres. What one remembers though is Sonu Kakkar's voice which has a unique twang to it. Composer and singer Ramji Gulati gets to put together two songs in the film, and the first one goes as 'Ishq Slow Slow'. A romantic number written by Bipin Das, this one is yet another just about fair number that doesn't really impress much. The overall tune is dull and the singing doesn't..

Music Review: Baazaar

22 days ago  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Music Reviews  
EXPECTATIONS For a film with stock market as the backdrop, one doesn't really expect a musical score in Baazaar. However, considering the fact that this is a Nikhhil Advani production who has an ear for music and Saif Ali Khan is the leading man who is a commercial actor, there are as many as half a dozen songs in there. Multiple composers, lyricists and singers come together to create this soundtrack. MUSIC A Gujarati-Hindi rap number, 'Kem Cho', kick-starts the album. A short fun track put together by composer Tanishk Bagchi, this one has a good hook to it with the sound of 'Kem Cho Mazaa Maa' bringing in a good recall value. Written by Ikka who also sings this one along with Jyotica Tangri, 'Kem Cho' then progresses to the beat of 'Money Money Money', hence fitting in well with the film's theme. Yo Yo Honey Singh writes, composes and sings 'Billionaire' which is slated to be in the kind of zone that a song like this is supposed to be. However, surprisingly the song d..
