A far cry from his humongous frame in Baahubali, Rana Daggubati's next avatar sees him 30 kilos lighter and leaner, as he plays jungle man Bandev in Haathi Mere Saathi. The actor tells mid-day he had to severely monitor his calorie intake to shed the kilos. "Prabu sir [Solomon, director] wanted the film to look real. It was difficult to lose all the weight since I have always had a large physique. I had to undergo extensive physical training to look lean and make adequate dietary changes. My workout was altered entirely; focus was paid on agility [training]." Instead of continuing his weight-training, the actor took to longer cardiovascular sessions that lasted about an hour.

Rubaru Roshni director Svati Chakravarty Bhatkal admits she found her protagonists' stories of forgiveness as "unbelievable" as viewers did. A documentary film revolving around murders, and the ability of the loved ones of the deceased to forgive the killers, was something she was certain she wanted to present to the audience. "I read a few stories in news reports, and reached out to the journalists, who helped me with the required [phone] numbers. Once I started calling and meeting people, I realised that there was something deep here. Initially, I took permission to film them on a handy-cam. Some of them were reluctant. I assured them that if they wanted to pull the plug anytime, they could," says Bhatkal, whose offering has been nominated in the Best Web Film category in the upcoming mid-day and Radio City Hitlist Web Awards.

Gender-bender: Bollywood in a 'trans' phase

2 days ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Entertainment  
When mainstream superstar Akshay Kumar takes up playing a transgender in "Laxmmi Bomb", you know change is happening in commercial Bollywood. Once upon a time, Bollywood heroism was about hypermasculinity, machismo and testosterone, and about following the formula of a guy saving a girl from five men and the two eventually falling in love. Now, mainstream actors are increasingly in the mood to experiment, and cross-gender roles -- where actors and actresses go for a gender reversal with the characters they portray -- are becoming commonplace. Experiments as these in the past were restricted to supporting cast or arthouse actors. Forget playing the transgender, even cross-dressing appearances of leading men in commercial cinema was a rare incidence, mostly restricted to song-and-dance sequences. Who can forget Amitabh Bachchan's cross-dressing gig "Mere angane mein" in "Laawaris" or Aamir Khan's "Dole dole" in "Baazi".

Vicky Kaushal on Bhoot - Part One: Can't succumb to pitfalls of stardom

I scare easy," laughs Vicky Kaushal, emphasising that he hasn't watched a horror movie since Paranormal Activity (2007). Not the sentiment you would expect from an actor who has fronted this week's release, the supernatural thriller, Bhoot — Part One: The Haunted Ship. But Kaushal says he was so taken by the script of the Bhanu Pratap Singh-directed project that he gave his nod. "This film was nowhere on my radar, and yet, here was a director who had the conviction to sell a horror film to a man who would never watch one. I had second thoughts [about doing the film] till I went through the script. The empty ship [MV Wisdom] that had appeared on Juhu beach out of nowhere [in 2011] had all of us talking for weeks. The film may be a paranormal affair, but it hits close to home," says the actor. Working on his first horror film was a learning experience for Kaushal.

Bhoot Part One: The Haunted Ship Movie Review - Half-decent horror

5 days ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Entertainment  
Bhoot Part One: The Haunted ShipA: Horror, thrillerDir: Bhanu Pratap SinghCast: Vicky Kaushal, Ashutosh RanaRating: The first frame/slate in this film thanks director Ram Gopal Varma. The reference I guess is obvious. It's do with Varma's 2003 Hindi horror film of the same name, that I suspect remains unsurpassed in Bollywood still for multiple reasons. For one, that it lifted the otherwise low-investment, high returns genre into a proper mainstream space, starring Ajay Devgn in the lead role. There were no songs in the film, of course. But beyond that it sent shivers down audiences' spines, chiefly for of its incredibly realistic setting — a regular apartment in Andheri's Versova/Lokhandwala/Oshiwara neighbourhood, hit by an otherworldly spirit, as the hero goes about his normal day, travelling up and down a typically rickety Mumbai elevator.

Hitlist Web Awards | Aditya Kripalani on Tottaa Pataaka Item Maal: Feminism with a difference

4 days ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Entertainment  
Director Aditya Kripalani understands that his films, owing to their unconventional subjects, may never be viewed as commercial outings. Couple that with the censorship trouble that his 2017 release Tikli and Laxmi Bomb ran into, and he is only too happy to release his films as direct-to-net offerings. Tottaa Pataaka Item Maal (2019) earned rave reviews when it dropped on Netflix last year. "The good thing about Netflix is that they respect the filmmaker's vision completely. Either they take it or they pass, but they never try to maul the film. I wanted to give the film a Thelma and Louise [1991] feel, but eventually, it was about the different kinds of feminism," he explains. Revolving around four women who abduct an eve-teaser to make him understand the humiliation that they go through when harassed, Tottaa Pataaka Item Maal shines a spotlight on gender inequality. However, Kripalani throws a curveball when he says that the movie's core idea lies in the blockbuster Sholay (1975). "Th..

For anyone who assumed that he spent weeks deliberating whether he should greenlight Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, Ayushmann Khurrana bursts the bubble. "It was an easy decision to make because the script was funny and commercial," he reasons. However, the actor accedes that he bided his time before zeroing in on the character he would play in the same-sex love story. "Hitesh [Kewalya, director] had asked me to choose the role I want to play. Jitu's [Jitendra Kumar] character is in the closet, and hence, has a more interesting arc. But I didn't want to play the victim this time, I wanted to be the instigator. My character is confident about his sexuality. He is rare [in that regard] because he doesn't give a damn about [what society thinks of] his sexual orientation. I am okay playing a relatively smaller character." As the building block for his part, the actor referred to Lie With Me by Philippe Besson, an acclaimed book about queer love. "I wanted to know what a gay man goes through ..

Shahid Kapoor has been acting in films for the last 17 years, but tryst with its functioning happened even before. He was a part of Shiamak Davar's dance troupe and was also seen and spotted much later by fans in films like Dil To Pagal Hai and Taal. In 2003, he made his debut with the dance film, Ishq Vishk, and there couldn't have been a more appropriate beginning of his career. Coupled with what the industry and the trade call the chocolate-boy looks, and some impeccable dancing skills, he was here to stay and stay for long. In an interview last year, while talking about the historic success of the widely polarised Kabir Singh, he said he has given more flops than hits, and it was disappointing to hear it because his film choices may have faltered, but never deserved to be dismissed as scathingly they were. In another interview back in 2013, he spoke how he has been a little unlucky and there were a lot of things that could've gone his way but didn't. Had luck been more on his side,..

Last September, when viewers found themselves pulled into the universe of the unassuming intelligence officer Srikanth Tiwari, essayed by Manoj Bajpayee, creators Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK were already charting the way forward for The Family Man. "Amazon [Prime Video] had sanctioned the second season before the first dropped online," marvels DK, glad that the suits at the streaming giant showed so much faith in their offering. However, DK is quick to add that in the early stages of development, the director duo knew that they had hit the sweet spot with the action thriller. "The creative team at Amazon kept watching it [as we developed], and over the weeks, their feedback was dwindling. Usually, they ask for a lot of changes. But here, they were surprised that they didn't want to change much." Ask them what made them jump on the digital bandwagon, and Raj accedes it was because of the liberty the medium provided.

Kanika Dhillon: Film deals with sexual assault on macro level

News / Mid-Day/ Entertainment  
When writer Kanika Dhillon puts pen to paper, you can be assured of a strong woman character driving the narrative. With Guilty, fronted by Kiara Advani, the writer explores the different versions that emerge when a woman accuses the college heartthrob of rape. "Guilty deals with the issue of sexual assault on a macro level. It does not only deal with the act, but also [shows] how the [survivor] is subjugated to humiliation and judgement. On the other hand, what happens to a person who is accused of rape? Are we giving him a lot of leeway, or using preconceived notions to judge him before the judgment is out?" questions Dhillon. She adds that an all-women team at the helm of affairs—the script has been co-written by Atika Chohan, director Ruchi Narain and her—made sure that the gaze does not veer into the exploitative. For the film, she borrowed from her experiences in St Stephen's College, Delhi. "I wanted it to be set in DU because it's a big part of my experience. We hav..

Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan Movie Review: Bit all over the place

4 days ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Entertainment  
Shubh Mangal Zyada SaavdhanU/A: Comedy, dramaDir: Hitesh KewalyaCast: Ayushmann Khurrana, Jitendra Kumar, Neena Gupta, Gajraj RaoRating: It's hard to put your finger on exactly what's not working with a film that, on the face of it, seems rather well-meaning, with performances on cue with dialogues that are top-notch — to say the least. That's until you figure a near complete absence of filmmaking chops that render this movie so completely cluttered, close-spaced, almost claustrophobic, meandering all over the frickin' place. Sure the heart's in the right place. The conflict is rather straight (or not; pardon the pun) — the fact there are two boys in love. And the desi family is aghast, unwilling to accept their son's (Jitendra Kumar's) same-sex romance. Maybe the issue is also that the picture gets to this point way too soon — first few scenes itself. There's no adequate build-up, hardly an exposition. This leaves the plot with such little elbow room to manoeuvre. Wa..

He told her that he always wanted to sing Gerua from Dilwale (2015) live for her. Kads was sporting enough to dance while Pritam and singers Antara Mitra and Sreeram Chandra rendered the track.

Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan Movie Review: Predictable yet amusing

4 days ago  
News / Mid-Day/ Entertainment  
Shubh Mangal Zyada SaavdhanU/A; Comedy, Romance Director: Hitesh KewalyaCast: Ayushmann Khurrana, Jitendra Kumar, Neena Gupta, Gajraj RaoRating:  Barring a few exceptions like Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Dil Se, and more recently Sairat, love stories in India end exactly the way the audiences want them to, or the way they predict, which can be both a boon and a curse. The other love stories hinge their narratives on nostalgia, reuniting iconic couples on the celluloid to elicit intrigue and interest in the viewers, for instance, Rohit Shetty's Dilwale. Both these emotions find their ways into Ayushmann Khurrana and Jitendra Kumar's Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, and the addition of the word Zyada not only suggests more boisterousness, but also the fact that this time the conflict in the love story is twice the size of the last film. If the 2017 comedy was about a man struggling with the embarrassment of suffering from erectile dysfunction, this time, he's a homosexual characte..

The shoot of Delhi Crime couldn't have been easy for Shefali Shah. Ever so often, she found herself pausing and reflecting on the gruesome nature of the crime. "The interrogation scene, where Jai Singh [one of the perpetrators] cruelly narrates the entire incident, made me want to throw up," begins Shah. Writer-director Richie Mehta's web series traces the aftermath of the 2012 Nirbhaya rape case as the cops nab the perpetrators. Shah as deputy commissioner of police Vartika Chaturvedi — who leads the investigation — was widely appreciated for her powerful act. Breaking through the line of performance and reality is the most important step for me as an actor. Call it a weakness or a strength, but I can't act. I don't strive to be like the character; instead, I become the character," she says. That she was deeply invested in the story only added to her performance.
