Welcome to Bollywood: Nikhila Trikha

Written by on August 12th, 2010

By now you already know that Rajneeti has become one of the biggest films of 2010. And while everyone stood out in the film, it was the supporting cast that held the film together. This includes the very talented Nikhila Trikha. The debutant actress went from young and feisty revolutionary to romancing Naseeruddin Shah to […]

The Essential Abhay Deol

Written by on August 7th, 2010

The upcoming release of Rajshree Ojha’s Aisha — based on Jane Austen’s Emma and starring Sonam Kapoor – will also bring Abhay Deol back to the screen in his first conventionally commercial venture since his debut film, Socha Na Tha.

Bollywood’s Ink!

Written by on August 6th, 2010

Celeb’s love for tattoo is not a novel one. Ranging from fancy art to religious designs to names of spouses and children, many b-town celebs adorn an ink or two. Deepika Padukone was recently at a suburban studio for a press meet for her upcoming film Lafangey Parindey. While the focus was on the film, […]

Bollywood Chick Flicks

Written by on August 6th, 2010

As much as Sonam Kapoor wants to scream, shout and howl that Aisha is Bollywood’s first Chick Flick, all we have to say is she is misinformed. While Aisha may house all the qualities that constitute for a Chick Flick, it is hardly the first that Bollywood has jutted out. For starters it is important […]

Welcome to Bollywood: Luv Sinha

Written by on July 28th, 2010

I wrote him off. He knows this. But this didn’t stop the incredibly smart Luv Sinha from agreeing to an interview with BollySpice. And after he blatantly told me he read my review, he was then more than accommodating when I asked him to be the first in a series of interviews that would highlight […]

Music Focus: Ismail Darbar

Written by on July 15th, 2010

Yes, another week of Music Focus and another highlight on a talented, but perhaps overlooked, music director. There are some music directors who continuously amaze the audiences with their composition and there are others who leave a mark with exceptional music in just a film or two. Is this because they get lucky or is […]

Music Focus: Vishal-Shekhar

Written by on July 6th, 2010

The music of Bollywood is listened to and much appreciated worldwide. It is fair to say that the success of any given soundtrack or song is sometimes only apparent because of the huge star-cast of a movie or perhaps the lyrics. However, the background score or tune doesn’t seem to get its due outside the […]

We Love-Hate Luv Storys

Written by on July 4th, 2010

We love them. We hate them. We love them. We hate them. The problem with Bollywood when it comes to love is simple: it has given women like us, unrealistic romantic ideals about Indian men. Not to burst anyone’s bubble but no ladies, he will not sing and dance in the rain with you. Nor […]

Written by on June 28th, 2010

Well, loyal Bollywood fanatics, we’re halfway through yet another year and have a few gems and a whole lotta trash to show for it. That’s 26 Fridays and approximately 64 releases.

Old is Gold: 1994 Krantiveer Movie Review

Written by on June 24th, 2010

With Krantiveer: The Revolution on the brink of release, we at BollySpice believe it is inherently importantly to look back at the initial film, which bought not only Mehul Kumar, but also Nana Patekar and Dimple Kapadia to the spotlight. The film bought about a revolution of its own and highlighted the talented Nana Patekar, […]

Raavanan: The Making of a Mad Man

Written by on June 19th, 2010

Director Mani Ratnam’s Raavanan, the Tamil language counterpart to Raavan, is a misty, murky take on the classic story of the kidnapping Ram’s wife Sita by the ten-headed demon Raavan. In this modern re-telling, Raavan becomes Veeeru (Chaiyyan Vikram) the ‘king’ of a small patch of jungle and all the villagers within it and for […]

“Raavan is definitely worth a watch, even if it’s not the epic it was touted to be.”

Written by on June 19th, 2010

After years of hype about Raavan being ace director Mani Ratnam’s most grand film yet, the verdict is finally out, and it’s definitely a mixed bag. Some love it and some hate it. Noted critic Rajeev Masand calls it “a crushing bore of a film” while Rediff’s Aseem Chhabra says Ratnam “is in top form.” […]

10 Best Mani Ratnam Moments

Written by on June 18th, 2010

When it comes to ace director Mani Ratnam, ‘Will he be able to do it again?’ is never the question. Talking to a friend recently, he brought to my attention that Mani Ratnam weaves his movies of the moments he creates, and while I was compiling this feature I realized how true he was. Mani […]

Spotlight: Mani Ratnam

Written by on June 17th, 2010

In one of his interviews, when Mani Ratnam was asked which his favorite among all his movies was, he replied, “None, probably the next one”. MANI RATNAM. One name, so much associated with it. I’m not sure where to begin. A thousand thoughts swarm my mind. The man needs no introduction but undoubtedly, his cinematic […]

A Trip Down Abhi-Ash Lane

Written by on June 16th, 2010

When they were came together on-screen for the first time, no one ever assumed that Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai would land up in holy matrimony. Why would they? The duo were deemed as a couple that lacked chemistry. It took time for audiences to finally accept the couple as an on-screen couple. And when […]

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s beauty was celebrated worldwide when she took the title of Miss World in 1994. Since that point, it seems, her entry into Bollywood was somewhat inevitable.
