  1. On Wednesday, Reliance Entertainment CEO Shibasish Sarkar took to Twitter to share that Rohit Shetty's 2017 film Golmaal Again is set to become the first Hindi film to release in theatres post COVID-19. Yes, you read that right. And here is the twist, the re-release will not happen in India! It is basically set to re-release in New Zealand, which is now COVID-free, apparently. Shibasish wrote, âThe show must go on. New Zealand opened their theatres and #GolmaalAgain becomes the first Hindi film to be screened post COVID-19. Cheers to a new beginning!â The show must go on. New Zealand opened their theatres and #GolmaalAgain becomes the first Hindi film to be screened post COVID-19. Cheers to a new beginning! @ajaydevgn #RohitShetty @ArshadWarsi @kunalkemmu @shreyastalpade1 @ParineetiChopra @TusshKapoor #Tabu pic.twitter.com/tljmCUQZ7T â Shibasish Sarkar (@Shibasishsarkar) June 24, 2020 Even filmmaker Rohit Shetty shared the news on his Instagram account. He shared the version of the poster that will be released in New Zealand and wrote, âNew Zealand decides to re-release Golmaal Again in theatres making it the first Hindi film to get a re-launch post COVID. New Zealand is now COVID free and is opening its theatres on June 25 with Golmaal Again.â In the 2017 film, actors Ajay Devgn, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Kunal Kemmu, Shreyas Talpade, and Johnny Lever reprised their roles, while Parineeti Chopra, Tabu, Prakash Raj and Neil Nitin Mukesh were the latest additions.

  2. Filmmakers in Bollywood often âremakeâ films from the Tamil & Telugu film industries quite blatantly. This is an indisputable fact, that the film-viewing public, especially fans of Bollywood are painstakingly aware of. However, that was not always the case. © Bhadrakali Pictures, AA Films For a really long time actually it was the other way round. Mainstream Bollywood films, especially in the 1970s, the golden age of Hindi cinema, were often remade in the south. However, once the filmmakers of that era hung their hats up, things went haywire for Bollywood. © Yash Raj Films, AVM Productions Caption: Trishul was remade as Mr Bharath in Tamil That is not to say that modern Bollywood films arenât remade in the south. On the contrary, there are actually quite a few really great Hindi films that have been remade in the Tamil, or Telugu or film industries. Of course, they had their own flavour and nuances, but the plot and the treatment of the plot were copied from the Bollywood originals. © NH STUDIOZ Here are 8 films that have been remade in the Southern film industries, simply because, the stories of the film were too good to pass on. 1. Pink © NH STUDIOZ, S Pictures Tamil Remake: Nerkonda Paarvai Pink remains to be probably one of the best films India has made in the last decade. It had some really great performances and was brutally realistic. The story, and the treatment of the plot were certainly the hero of the film. The Tamil remake saw Ajith take up the role of Amitabh Bachchan. Obviously, this one just had to be remade. 2. Delhi Belly © UTV Motion Pictures Tamil Remake: Settai Delhi Belly was a gritty film that pretty much everyone enjoyed thoroughly. This is again, one of those films that had a very strong story and plot, and for a small budget film, it did really well, especially when you consider the fact that there were no grade-A established actors cast in the film. 3. Pyaar Ka Punchnama © Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, Maruthi Telugu Remake: Green Signal As problematic & misogynistic Pyaar Ka Punchnama has turned out to be over the years, there is no point in denying that when it initially came out, a lot of people genuinely enjoyed the film, and related to the story. The Telugu remake, Green Signal, tried replicating the same but failed, if some people are to be believed. 4. Jolly LLB © Fox Star Studios Tamil Remake: Manithan Jolly LLB was a very endearing film for a number of reasons. It was a collection of amazing performances, a very gripping story, and a brilliantly written script. Arshad Warsi & Boman Irani were just impeccable. The Tamil remake, although not as hilarious, is still a very powerful film. 5. Kahani © Viacom 18 Motion Pictures Telugu Remake: Anaamika Although Kahani did okay at the box office, it was a phenomenal success on OTT & television. That just goes on to show how well the story was laid out. And then of course, there was Vidya Balanâs performance. The Telugu version of the film is set in Hyderabad, and blends in the cultural nuances that the city of Nizams had to offer. But in every other aspect, it is very close to the Bollywood original. 6. Khosla Ka Ghosla © UTV Motion Pictures Tamil Remake: Poi Solla Porom Khosla Ka Ghosla as a film is simply a class apart. It is a proper comedy while being a very scathing commentary on a number of key, social issues that the common man in India may have to go through. Of course, this one just had to be remade. 7. A Wednesday © UTV Motion Pictures Tamil Remake: Unnaipol Oruvan Telugu Remake: Eenadu Yeah, A Wednesday was remade by both, the Tamil AND Telugu film industries. Do we really need to tell you why? Without a doubt, it is one of the best films that has been made in India, with a story that deserves to be told in every part of the world that is battling terrorism. 8. 3 Idiots © Reliance BIG Pictures, Gemini Film Circuit Tamil Remake: Nanban For a long, long time, 3 Idiots was considered to be the benchmark of a good Hindi movie, and rightly so. Only very recently did we actually start seeing some of the problematic aspects of the film. But nonetheless, it was a damn funny film, that was also very poignant at times. And then, there was the performance of the film at the box office, and on cable. Of course, this one was going to be remade. View the full article
  3. Middle-class Maharashtrian life, a brutal retelling of 2016âs demonetisation fiasco and a surprisingly warm directorial effort from the Gangs of Wasseypur legend - Anurag Kashyap is a man whoâs come far in Bollywood and left a mark on Indian cinema thatâs left many drawing parallels between him and Quentin Tarantino - with bloodshed, slick and relentless dialogue mashed with picture-perfect pacing making an appearance in all his films. © Netflix Choked, however, feels decidedly different. Zooming in on the interweaving stories of a single apartment complex and a single family, Kashyap tones down the intensity and reveals a side to himself as a storyteller that weâve rarely seen before - here are some excerpts from his exclusive interview with MensXP where he discusses his creative shifts, opinions on film and challenges with making Choked a reality. How Satisfied Are You With The Film? âIâm very happy with the film. Itâs a labour of love and I think Iâve successfully been able to keep out my political biases - it feels like it's the characters, not like Anurag Kashyap has told them to say anything. It looks and feels effortless. To me, they are living and feeling that life and they are experiencing those changes. © Netflix In Bollywood, when youâre making a film, the budget of the film usually gets decided on the basis of who is in it, so we have to struggle a lot when making a film the way it's supposed to be made. This film had to be shot the right way. We got to shoot in a housing society thatâs under renovation - working with a green screen to make sure that the kitchen scenes with the flooding money and water could be captured. Also, working with actors who were right for the role, instead of just finding faces - itâs just been a very satisfying experience to make this film.â Youâve Mentioned How This Film Is Free Of Political Biases, But Is There Some Subtle Commentary In There? âEverybody has their own politics. A character can have his own politics, while mine can be very extreme. Everyoneâs politics depends upon their realities. © Netflix Letâs take the example of Sushant, Roshan Mathewâs character. He has the feeling that heâs greater than the work thatâs being offered to him - and is happy in thinking this, something that his buddies reinforce. Take Saiyamiâs character, Sarita - sheâs a busy working woman who doesnât have the time to care about politics - she simply wants to come home to a clean house. I cannot make any of these characters me, because I have the privilege. I have people who will inform me, correct me if I say something wrong or if Iâm misinformed. [These characters] donât have that.â © Netflix How Much Of Your Responsibility Towards Society Becomes Part Of The Cinema That You Make? âI feel that a filmmaker should be a chronicler of time. A filmmaker cannot be a propagandist. Aaj kal, thereâs loads of propagandist films being made - theyâve already chosen sides. If weâre talking about a Mukkabaaz where thereâs a lynching scene, Iâm just showing things as they happen. Iâm not giving it a separate kind of twist, all the people here coexist while gaining and losing. This is something I like about Paatal Lok as well - it portrays not what the world should be, but what the world is. Sometimes, every solution leads to a problem. © Netflix If I try to create a film that answers or acts as a counter to a propagandist film, even the film I make becomes propaganda. If I put in my ideology and become self-righteous as a filmmaker, thatâs also propaganda. This is why my films are still relevant - because they show both sides.â How Did The Idea For The Film Convince You? âI loved the idea of a housewife running short of money and finding it in the kitchen sink. Itâs a very David Fincher kind of an idea. © Netflix This film was picked up in 2015, before demonetisation happened. It was just a script about marriage and about a woman finding money coming out of the sink. When I read the script, I thought it was a great premise but it wasnât landing and we kept struggling to make the script land properly. And one-and-a-half years after weâd acquired the script, demonetisation happened. And that made the idea more relevant. Then, I went on to shoot Mukkabaaz and Nihit Bhave went back to rewriting the script. Itâs been a six-year process - what youâre seeing is what we made six years after acquiring the script.â © Netflix What Do You Feel About Films Releasing On OTT Platforms Instead Of Theatres? âI came to terms with it a long time back, yaar. I found most of my audiences online - so now the benefit comes directly to me as a filmmaker. © unsplash If Iâm making a film that retains complexity, that is only for the âlearnedâ kind of audience or a certain kind of audience, this is a platform where I can reach out to them directly. [When it comes to the cinematic experience], you win some and you lose some - Iâve always been told that my audience is not a family audience. I stopped waiting to see the consequence of a film Iâve made long back - when a film gets over, Iâve already moved on to the next, which Iâll do when the lockdown gets over. I donât wait.â Whatâs Your Opinion On How The Lockdown Has Been Handled In India? âI assume that nobody really knows whatâs going to happen, this has been an unprecedented situation. The thing is, there are two kinds of leaders weâre looking at here - those who have an intention of dealing with it, finding solutions and making lives better, and those who are mostly interested in self-preservation than actually dealing with the lockdown. © Reuters Everybody is currently looking at people who can simply suggest ideas on how to find solutions - solutions to the economy, solutions to the pandemic⦠a lot of people have to deal with this crisis head-on.â You can watch Choked on Netflix.

  4. India is a big fan of superhero movies and we have only seen men playing the part mostly. It will be interesting to see a woman finally becoming a superhero in Bollywood movies. According to the recent reports, Katrina Kaif has signed a movie with Ali Abbas Zafar for which she will start shooting post the lockdown and she will be seen playing the role of superwoman. Ali Abbas Zafar said that recently, he locked that script and it will go on the floors once the lockdown ends. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@katrinakaif) The director told Mumbai Mirror that he has completed the first draft of another movie too, and said that hopefully, the script for that movie too will be ready soon. He further said, "Thereâs a lot of prep required because of the kind of action involved and I am in touch with an international team over video calls. Iâm also doing script readings with my actors and chatting with the production designer. There is a lot happening." People on social media have already started to form their opinions.

  5. A major part of making a mainstream film in Bollywood is booking a release date which promises a kickstart in terms of the box office revenue collection. For example, Shah Rukh Khan prefers a release around Diwali, Salman Khan books Eid for his films, and this has now become common knowledge. However, sometimes major films also clash with one another, it's not likely that each clash ends with two winners, sometimes some films don't end up doing well with heavy competition. Here are the major clashes of films in the last couple of years, and the film that took the throne amongst the two. 1. Raees Vs Kaabil, January 25, 2017 © IMDB The Republic Day film release of 2017 saw the box-office clash of Shahrukh Khanâs Raees and Hrithik Roshanâs Kaabil. Both the stars desperately needed a hit to redeem their positions at the box-office considering that they didnât have a great 2016. After a month's run, Rahul Dholakiaâs Raees had dominated over Sanjay Guptaâs Kaabil. But both the films couldn't make it to the Rs 300 crore club. 2. Ae Dil Hai Mushkil Vs Shivaay, October 28, 2016 © IMDB Karan Joharâs Ae Dil Hai Mushkil clashed with Ajay Devgnâs Shivaay for the much sought after Diwali release of 2016. Both of these films did equally well. Ae Dil Hai Mushkil had a total collection being Rs 104.1 crore in India. Shivaay, directed by Ajay Devgn also made it to the Rs 100-crore club at the domestic box office. 3. Mohenjo Daro Vs Rustom, August 12, 2016 © IMDB With the backing of top actors and stars, Rustom and Mohenjo Daro were heavily dependent upon Akshay Kumar and Hrithik Roshan. Rustom not only took a better opening, but the gap between the film and Hrithik Roshan's Mohenjo Daro widened with each passing day. It started with a difference of around 60%, Rustom ran 2-3 times the collections of Mohenjo Daro. 4. Dilwale Vs Bajirao Mastani, December 18, 2015 © IMDB Before the release of these two major films, there were constant speculations about which film would do better. However, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Bajirao Mastani and Dilwale did equally well at the worldwide box office. While Dilwale grossed over Rs. 370 crores, Bajirao Mastani was at a strong Rs. 358 crores. 5. Jab Tak Hai Jaan Vs Son Of Sardaar November 13, 2012 © IMDB The much-awaited films of 2012, Ajay Devgan, and SRK were competing closely with Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Son Of Sardar. Both the films ended up doing good business well and managed to enter the 100-crore club respectively. View the full article
  6. The sudden passing of Rishi Kapoor who succumbed to a long battle with leukaemia at the age 67, has left a gaping hole in the hearts of friends and admirers of the spunky veteran star. Crowned Bollywoodâs âKing Of Romanceâ and lovingly called as Chintu Ji by his close associates within the industry, Rishi Kapoor has left behind a vibrant body of work that promises a memorable journey to his viewers. © Twitter/taran-adars However, the late actor couldnât finish his last project, Sharmaji Namkeen which had come as good news to his fans, who had been waiting to behold him on the silver screen as the leading man in a film once again. Here is what we know about Rishi Kapoorâs unfinished project, Sharmaji Namkeen: 1. Sharmaji Namkeen would have starred Rishi Kapoor and Juhi Chawla in leading roles, while Gufi Paintal and Sheeba Chaddha were cast as supporting cast. The film was being directed by Hitesh Bhatia and produced by Farhan Akhtar's Excel Entertainment. © Twitter/iam-juhi 2. Reportedly, Sharmaji Namkeen is a cheerful, coming-of-age story about a loveable 60-year-old man and his take on life. Reportedly, the titular characterâs love for food was identical to Rishi Kapoorâs personal culinary weaknesses. 3. This was supposed to be Rishi Kapoorâs comeback film after the cancer hiatus, followed by Deepika Padukone starrer The Intern and Pandit Galli Ka Ali with Sanjay Dutt. Sharmaji Namkeen director Hitesh Bhatia revealed that he was excited to essay Robert De Niroâs role in the Bollywood remake of The Intern. © Twitter/iam-juhi 4. Sharmaji Namkeen would have been Rishi Kapoor and Juhi Chawlaâs collaboration on a project after 10 years, since their last performance together in Luck By Chance where they played a typical fun-loving and loud married Punjabi couple. 5. The principal photography of Sharmaji Namkeen was being done in Delhi. Reportedly, Rishi Kapoor had started shooting for the film by the end of 2018, even before he was diagnosed with cancer. However, the shooting had to be stopped when Rishi Kapoor fell sick while shooting and ended up moving to the US for his treatment. © Twitter/shiwangipes 6. It is also being reported that the cast was on the final leg of filming with only a final few days of shooting left. 7. Now with Rishi Kapoorâs sudden demise, and parts of the film still left unfinished, it is being speculated that Sharmaji Namkeen will either be re-shot or shelved indefinitely. © Twitter/msrbh 8. The shooting for the film with Juhi Chawla began in January, and reportedly, Rishi Kapoor had fallen sick even around that time. He tried his best to finish the film despite his fragile health and a family tragedy, his sister Ritu Nandaâs death. 9. The last scene for Sharmaji Namkeen that was shot before the lockdown was announced, was a car scene featuring Juhi Chawla and Rishi Kapoor. View the full article
  7. Shehzad Hameed Ahmed wins awards in the categories of ?human rights? and ?human concerns?
  8. Sony Pictures Entertainment has decided to snag the wildly successful anime One Punch Man - with Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner taking care of the screenplay, and Avi Arad and Ari Arad of Arad Productions taking up the producersâ chairs. Created as a low-budget, high-concept manga series back in 2009, artist/writer ONEâs quirky, hilarious and thoroughly refreshing take on the superhero genre was widely appreciated by fans, and led to a full blown manga series hitting Shueisha Magazineâs Young Jump Next in 2012 - gorgeously illustrated by Yusuke Murata, one of Japanâs all-time greats. © TV Tokyo Following an English release in 2015, the manga was soon adapted into an anime series that gained worldwide acclaim and even has its own video game - so itâs not surprising that Sony decided to pick it up for the live-action treatment. The series follows the story of superhero Saitama, an unassuming yet devastatingly powerful man capable of destroying any foe with a single punch - leaving him frustrated and bored without anyone to challenge him. © TV Tokyo The seriesâ unique twist, colourful cast of characters and gratuitous comedy won many hearts over the years, and several of us fans are left speculating over who can truly pull off the cast IRL. Here are our top picks - avoiding the ever-present whitewashing thatâs hit anime-to-live action adaptations so far: 1. Stephen Chow as Saitama © Columbia Pictures/Madhouse Although the martial arts action legend from Hong Kong is a bit past his prime, thereâs no one whoâs been able to seamlessly blend goofy comedy alongside awesome fighting setpieces the way heâs done - just check out the manâs work from earlier cult classic such as Kung Fu Hustle and Shaolin Soccer. A bit of makeup and CGI work could get us a truly memorable performance that would knock the socks off all of us disappointed by Hollywoodâs previous 2. Jackie Chan as Bang/Silver Fang © Columbia Pictures/Madhouse A martial arts veteran with a humble yet righteous personality - seems like Chan in his late-career would certainly nail this role. The actor himself has represented those values both on and off the set, and given the chance, martial arts film fans would be thrilled to see him cast alongside Chow in a movie. 3. Ryuhei Matsuda as Genos © Shochiku/Madhouse Slick, serious and with a flair for dramatic and driven characters, Matsudaâs career across the last twenty years of Japanese cinema has everyone you need for a perfect Genos. The young, selfless robotic warrior could work well with the actorâs stoic reputation - and fortunately for Matsuda, the physicality of Genos would have to focus on costume work and CGI effects. 4. Terry Crews as Superalloy Darkshine © NBC Universal/Madhouse I wanted this pretty much as soon as the character was introduced - huge, hilariously vain and yet compassionate and peace-loving, Crews would probably nail his role better than anyone else on this list. We just hope heâs going to be comfortable wearing literally nothing but a black speedo for the entire shoot, though - but itâll be worth it when we get to see him yell out special moves before destroying his opponents. 5. Chow Yun Fat as Atomic Samurai © Sony Pictures/Madhouse Proud and hilariously arrogant, the worldâs strongest swordsman in the One Punch Man universe fits many of Chow Yun Fatâs roles throughout the years - along with the aesthetic required. For those who love Chinese martial arts flicks, seeing Fat dismiss Stephen Chow as Saitama would be absolutely hilarious and a dream come true. View the full article
  9. The Coronavirus pandemic has initiated a lockdown in most countries that has resulted in minimal human interaction, and while it's a privilege to be able to stay at home amidst the pandemic, it can, inevitably, get a little lonesome at times. Amidst these strange times, people are finding new and creative ways to participate socially while adhering to social distancing norms. Case in point, Scott Duggan from the Frankfield Villas neighbourhood in Ireland who works at a theatre company, decided to use his equipment amidst the lockdown to project a classic film for the neighbourhood's entertainment. © TWITTER/ @CLAREMKEOGH For this, the neighbourhood, set up their couches, patio heaters, outdoor lights and refreshments in their front gardens while adhering to the social distancing guidelines to watch the 1953 Marilyn Monroe classic comedy, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes all together. Frankfield Villas is a small neighbourhood in Ireland with a terrace of 14 houses on Windmill Rd in Cork City which is the second-largest city in Ireland. © TWITTER/ @CLAREMKEOGH Scott Duggan is the technical manager of the Cyclone Rep theatre company. To carry out this project, whilst the film was projected onto the gable-end of a house on the terrace, the sound was broadcasted on people's radios separately to make sure that people stay put in their respective balconies. Ann Lynch, a fellow neighbour, who has lived in the neighbourhood for almost 54 years told the local publication that this was the best idea she had ever seen. © TWITTER/ @CLAREMKEOGH Scott Duggan told the publication that he did it to maintain a sense of community and solidarity during the COVID-19 pandemic. He further added, âThe absence of the shared experience has been one of the most difficult things that people have had to adjust to across the globe over the last number of weeks. Whether that experience is the cinema, the theatre, the local pub, sports events or major public gatherings, staying apart is not normal behaviour for huge swathes of the population." © TWITTER/ @CLAREMKEOGH Talking about the accessibility of OTT platforms in Ireland, he added, âOlder people may not have the ease of access to streaming services that are taken for granted in other households. The impromptu movies provide some safe entertainment and an important sense of community that a lot of people are missing out on right now.â He definitely wants to host another one of these social distance adhering movie nights. He said, âThe movie night was so well received on the street that we are looking to do it again." Scott Duggan wants to set up a similar arrangement for nursing homes or elderly care centres near his locality. View the full article
  10. The Studio has dropped new stills for Gal Gadot superhero film and confirmed that the movie will be released in theaters despite coronavirus scare
  11. The 2020 Cannes Film Festival has been officially postponed over coronavirus
  12. The corona virus outbreak has halted normal life, affected businesses and is pushing people to the brink of being depressed in quarantine. While humans are trying to keep each other motivated through social media, the cinema business too has taken a major pull. Here are 7 big movie releases which have been pushed for a long period of time amidst the pandemic situation. 1. No Time To DieThe much-awaited Daniel Craigâs outing as the good looking Bond spy has been pushed to November from its original release date in April. This is the second time the release date has been pushed from its primary date in November 2019 and this delay will cost the makers a whopping $30 to $50 million hit. 2. Peter Rabbit 2The release date has been pushed from March to August now and the release dates are still not specific. 3. Black WidowThe pandemic has affected the release of this Scarlett Johannson movie as well. The initial release date was around May 1st but now it has been postponed indefinitely. 4.

  13. When you manage to tear your eyes away from the sheepish smile that plays on his lips, you get the chance to behold Bollywood's most prolific underdog-turned-mega-star, that is Irrfan Khan. With his rugged handsomeness, terrific performances, and earthy, personal charm, Irrfan makes for the perfect prototype to be called the ultimate Bollywood âdark horseâ. © Maddock Films Irrfan has been away from the mainstream acting scene since 2018 when he first announced about suffering from a neuroendocrine tumour. Having battled with cancer for over a year, Irrfan came back to face the camera once again last year for his latest film Angrezi Medium. While many are claiming Angrezi Medium to be Irrfanâs much-awaited comeback film post his fight with cancer, true-blue Irrfan Khan fans would beg to differ. For a true Irrfan Khan fan like myself, Angrezi Medium is more than a comeback film and here is exactly why: 1. Itâs The Most Weâll Get To See Of Him Since The Cancer Detection © Maddock Films Irrfan was last seen in the 2018 road film Karwaan, following which broke the news about him leaving for London to get treated for a brain tumour. Itâs been almost two years since, and now, with Angrezi Medium, I will get to witness this man spill his magic on-screen once again. Ever since the detection of his cancer, Irrfan has stayed away from public appearances, choosing to get treated and recuperate away from the public glare. So, this gives his fans the next best shot at beholding their favourite star up close on the silver screen! 2. It Is A Living Example That We Are Stronger Than The Things Trying To Hold Us Back © Maddock Films I can list a number of reasons why Irrfan Khan is one of the most inspirational Bollywood stars out there. But the one thing that trumps it all, currently, is his spirit. His resilience and dedication put Irrfan in a league of his own. Despite not being completely in the clear, Irrfan shot the film for director Homi Adajania, who swore to not make this film with any other actor. Irrfan came back, kept his promise and finished the shooting before heading back to London to continue his treatment for the shooting wrap-up. 3. It Might Be A While Before He Graces The Silver Screen Again © Maddock Films Letâs get a little realistic. Unless someone has been a survivor themself, or has witnessed a loved one battle with cancer, you and I will never be able to imagine how taxing even the recovery process can be, let alone the treatment itself. And though Irrfan has put on a brave face and finished this latest project, it might be a while before we see him on the silver screen again. Even with a few projects in the pipeline, we cannot be sure when they will see the light of the day. 4. Itâs A Reminder Why We Love Him The Way We Do © Maddock Films I donât know about others, but for me, Angrezi Medium is yet another reminder of why I adore this man and his craft so much. Itâs not about the story (Irrfan chose to do it, of course, the story will be worth it) or the supporting cast (Kareena chose to do this film only because of Irrfan, need I say more?). Itâs the promise to witness my favourite actor do what he does like none other. This gifted actor eats, breathes and lives his craft. He weaves stories and teaches his audience a thing or two with every film. His 30-year long, roller-coaster Bollywood journey makes him unconquerable and a striking beam of hope that there is hope for each one of us. Angrezi Medium is not just Irrfanâs comeback film for me, it is proof that this is what a devoted artist can do when lifeâs challenges are met with dedication and undiluted honesty for oneâs craft.

  14. There are movies that you go to a theatre to watch, watch it and then forget it once the popcorn and the glass of coke is digested. But then there are movies that you can watch over and over again, and still feel goosebumps every time you see it. Vidhu Vinod Chopra's 3 Idiots is one such movie. © Vidhu Vinod Chopra Films A cinema theatre in the Japanese city of Osaka shut down, and the film screened in its final show happened to be Aamir Khanâs 3 Idiots. The theatre organisers tweeted, âThe last show of Fuse Line Cinemas, 15:30 times today. It will be fine. 131 guests! It is housefull! Thank you!â ãå¸æ½ã©ã¤ã³ã·ãã ã®ã©ã¹ãã·ã§ã¼ã®ã©ã¹ãã·ã§ã¼ã æ¬æ¥15:30ã®å ããã£ã¨ããã¾ãããã 131åæ§ã®ãæ¥å ´ï¼æºå¸­ã§ãï¼ æé£ããããã¾ãï¼ pic.twitter.com/5U3uerQwcv â å¸æ½ã©ã¤ã³ã·ãã (@fuselinecinema7) February 29, 2020The theatre saw a heavy audience, proving that it is one of the most impactful movies of all time and is loved by everyone across the globe. Well, 3 Idiots released a decade ago but it seems like itâs still pretty much relevant. © Vidhu Vinod Chopra Films The movie talked about very relatable issues that most of us have faced at different times in our lives. It focused on the rat race that comes along with our education sector. It showed how parents want their children to become engineers and not go for creative fields because itâs hard to mint money. 3 Idiots also discouraged rote learning and memorising the syllabus without understanding the meaning. The movie was released overseas in Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea, China, and Japan. It will be interesting to see what Aamir Khan and other lead actors have to say about this. It was released on 25th December 2009 starring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan in lead roles and Sharman Joshi, R. Madhavan and Boman Irani in pivotal roles. Hereâs the trailer: There have been talks about the sequel of the movie as the first one did really well. Last year, Hirani in an interview with a tabloid revealed that he started writing the script for 3 Idiots part 2. He said, âI definitely want to make a sequel to 3 Idiots. In fact, Abhijat [Joshi, writer] and I started writing something a few days ago. But itâs still in the initial stage and we will take a fair amount of time to develop the script.â Are you looking forward to watching the sequel? Let us know in the comments section below.

  15. It isnât everyday that an actor manages to cross every linguistic and cultural barrier to make a place for themselves in the hearts of millions, all at once. But Baahubali megastar Prabhas managed to pull off this feat effortlessly. He is more than just a heartthrob. Fans love his screen presence and swear by the magic he can spell with his performances. © Arka Media Works So, despite the Saaho debacle, fans didnât lose faith in their favourite star, and perhaps thatâs why people absolutely lost it when Prabhasâ project was announced yesterday. The director of the film, Nag Ashwin took to Twitter to make the official announcement and said: Shoot year end lo start...maybe 2021 end lo release...too early to say anything else, expect a big thanks to prabhas garu...kontha mandi pan-india film antunnaru...adi tappu...pan-india eppudo kottesaaru...idi pan-world darlings :)) #PrabhasNagAshwin https://t.co/9KnLQqbVgm â Nag Ashwin (@nagashwin7) February 26, 2020 Nag Ashwin who directed the superhit Telugu film Mahanati, claimed in his latest tweet that this upcoming film with Prabhas wonât be a pan-India film like most people are claiming, but instead itâll be a whole lot bigger and better to become a pan-world movie. © Twitter Though not much is known about the film, reports claim that Prabhas will be playing a superhero in the film. Thatâs not all, allegedly many big names from the entertainment industry will be part of the project, which is scheduled to go on the floors by the end of this year. © Twitter Prabhasâ mega-budget film is expected to hit the screens in late 2021, and reportedly Nag Ashwin told India Today that it wonât be a remake or a biopic. Rumour also has it that Jr NTR might be collaborating with Nag Ashwin on this film, and shall be the big project of 2020 because of the star cast that is expected to come onboard for the project.

  16. India is a melting pot of culture and the synergy of art and cinema that this country radiates is seldom matched by any other country. While Bollywood is globally recognised as a huge source of mass entertainment, the entertainment industry in South India is also a biggie and is sometimes, in fact, known to be more professional and streamlined where work is concerned. South Indian movie stars are perceived to be humble and real for their fans and hence the ever-growing appetite for making more movies is understandable. However, there are some North Indian stars as well who have enjoyed immense fame, and here are 5 Punjabi actresses who have managed to have a successful career down South as well: 1. Taapsee Pannu Long before she forayed and made her mark in Bollywood, Taapsee Pannu was already a famous name down South. She has been there for over a decade and has many hits to her credit including Aadukalam and Mogudu. she is one of the finest actresses of recent times and is currently riding on the success of her recent movie Thappad which raises the issue of domestic violence in the country.

  18. âWhich actors would you like for your film, Mr. Anderson?â â...Yes.â If youâre a fan of Wes Andersonâs work, particularly with Searchlight Pictures, you have seen some of the most delightful stuff to ever be captured on film. Generous, sweeping pastel palettes, acting choreographed with razor-sharp finesse, and of course, the glorious, glorious symmetry thatâs become synonymous with the filmmaker. © Searchlight Pictures Thereâs plenty of reasons to be excited for the upcoming film, The French Dispatch - but before we get into excited adulations surrounding what might just be the most âWes Andersonâ film by Wes Anderson, take a look at the trailer, which just dropped this Thursday. The trailer opens with Bill Murray as Arthur Howitzer Jr., editor of the French Dispatch - described in the trailer as âa factual weekly report on the world of politics, the arts â high and low â and diverse stories of human interest.â Anderson happens to be a collector and fan of The New Yorker magazine - and the journalists depicted in the film as well as the stories they follow seem to be loosely inspired by the unique, thrilling and often bizarre tales youâd find during the publicationâs heyday in the 1950s. It also seems that the film jumps back and forth in time a la The Grand Budapest Hotel - playing around with colour, black-and-white and in a delightful nod to classic cinema, old-school aspect ratios. It appears that the central plot of this film weaves itself around three particular stories, hunted down by the Dispatchâs legendary journalists. © Searchlight Pictures âThe Concrete Masterpieceâ is the subject of the first story - reported by J.K.L. Berensen (Tilda Swinton). The masterpiece itself is an enigmatic painting produced by an apparently psychopathic, imprisoned artist - Moses Rosenthaler (Benicio Del Toro), whose muse Simone (Lea Seydoux) also happens to be his jailer. Things take a turn for the intense as art dealer Julien Cadazio (Adrein Brody) shows up with one thing on his mind - to get Rosenthaler to part with his beloved painting, no matter the cost. © Searchlight Pictures If youâve ever watched Bernardo Bertelucciâs The Dreamers, youâll like this one. Deeply influenced by the 1968 student riots in Paris, âRevisions To A Manifestoâ is written by Lucinda Krementz (Frances McDormand), and follows the story of two young French revolutionaries - Zeffirelli (Timothee Chalamet) and Juliette (Kyna Khoudri). While this little vignette seems to have the least footage in the trailer, we do get a rather funny, mysterious glimpse of Zeffirelli interrupted during a shower by Krementz, who seems to be... crying? © Searchlight Pictures Again - if you dig Wes Anderson, it would come as no surprise that heâd sneak in food critic Roebuck Wright (Jeffrey Wright) into the Dispatchâs battalion of front-line reporters. The filmmaker has always enjoyed creating marvelous setpieces revolving around food, and this one takes the cake - no pun intended. âThe Private Dining Roomâ revolves around a master chefâs (Steve Park) unique dining experiences, and one particular dinner where a guest (Mathieu Amalric) receives a chilling phone call, informing him that his son has been kidnapped. Itâs speculated that actors Williem DaFoe, Liev Schrieber, Ed Norton and Saiorse Ronan also have a part to play in this delectable tale. Owen Wilson and Christoph Waltz are also casted - along with a bevy of exceptional French talent. While the film is slated for a July 24th release, itâs to be expected that the film will have a special screening at this yearâs Cannes Film Festival, which will be held a bit earlier this May.
