Scene by Scene: “We Care about Ishaan” in Taare Zameen Par

Written by on June 12th, 2010

Picking out a favorite movie scene is like selecting your favorite song: there are so many and you don’t know which one to choose because the choices always vary with time. So zeroing down on just one scene was a difficult task, but this particular scene from Taare Zameen Par (TZP) will always remain one […]

Written by on June 12th, 2010

The performances make Brick Lane a film worth a look – Subhash K Jha

Written by on May 29th, 2010

Arranged marriages are almost always compromised arrangements. They require tremendous compromises and determination on the part of the less disgruntled partner in a marriage. We saw two empathetic male spouses played by Ajay Devgn and Shah Rukh Khan in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, respectively. In Brick Lane Satish […]

Rahat Hi Rahat: Rahat Fateh Ali Khan Concert Review

Written by on May 15th, 2010

The singer,Rahat Fateh Ali Khan grew up around his uncle Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and with that heritage it basically puts immense pressure to perform and outdo himself every time. He was all of eleven when the singer toured with his uncle in the U.K. and from then on, there was no turning back. […]

Modern Mums of Bollywood

Written by on May 9th, 2010

They’re just as normal as any other moms around the world with a single exception; they are popular Bollywood actresses. But this doesn’t make them any different. In fact, our Bollywood moms are as normal as they get. They stay up late nights tending to their sick children, turn up at school events and even […]

Bollywood throughout the years: 1930s

Written by on May 7th, 2010

Bollywood. One word, which has the capability of conjuring up dozens of images of gorgeous ladies and handsome men, clad in colourful costumes, singing and dancing in the rain, running around trees, falling in love… and in the process, overcoming all obstacles in the way of their love, to finally be each other’s companion for […]

Subhash K Jha: The style behind Paathshaala is in its inner conviction

Written by on April 18th, 2010

If a piece of cinema ever had its heart in the right place, this is it. Don’t let the sluggish pace, the absence of stylish shots and flamboyant frames fool you into believing that this is a film with no style. The style behind Paathshaala is in its inner conviction. The obvious artlessness of presentation […]

Review: Asha Bhosle in Concert!

Written by on April 18th, 2010

Asha Bhosle in concert is a transcendental experience; she captures not just the sound of Bollywood but its very soul. Asha Bhosle is still a firecracker at 76 and she and Sudesh Bhosle performed for a good three hours last night at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, DC backed by the R.D. Burman band. I […]

Subhash K Jha: The Dimple-Nana relationship is endearing in Tum Milo Toh Sahi

Written by on April 4th, 2010

Just for the pleasure of watching Nana Patekar and Dimple Kapadia together, this quaint and sincere look at love across three generations is well worth a dekko. Dimple Kapadia, exuding a warmth that pervades the screen plays a feisty Parsi woman who isn’t deterred let alone defeated by attempts to dismantle her dream, namely a […]

Subhash K Jha: They don’t make screen-moms like Rekha and Hema any more!

Written by on April 4th, 2010

It is deliciously ironical that during the week that our tennis queen Sania Mirza announced she would marry in Pakistan, comes this film where the young desi pair threatens to get married and move to Pakistan. Life often imitates art. And art is often a close companion of kitsch and melodrama. Kitschy melodrama is attacked […]

Hooked On Hindi Films via Bride & Prejudice!

Written by on March 25th, 2010

Most desis who like Bollywood can attribute the beginning of their fandom to a family member, a friend, or nostalgia for their childhoods. In the Western world, however, non-desis who know more than, “they’re all musicals, right?” about Hindi films are few and far between (though always adding to their number). Ask one of these […]

Arshad Warsi’s 10 Best Roles

Written by on March 25th, 2010

Although Arshad Warsi has been in the Bollywood for almost 15 years, he has yet to be fully appreciated as a solo hero. Most people know him as either Munnabhai’s comic sidekick Circuit or perhaps as one of the crazy crew from the seemingly endless (but always hilarious) low brow comedies with the catchy names: […]
