Top Scandals of 2009

Written by on January 4th, 2010

No other film industry does scandal quite like Bollywood. Whether it’s terrorism charges, misguided publicity stunts, or just family drama, Bollywood does scandal the way it does everything else – oversized and melodramatic. 2009 saw some of the usual suspects up to their old tricks (Salman and Sanjay never have a dull moment) and the […]

Best Tweets of 2009

Written by on January 4th, 2010

Bollywood’s Hottest Women

Written by on December 16th, 2009

The guys on the Bollywood Spice team were stunned by the revelation that none of them were included in the list when the girls produced their Bollywood’s fifteen hottest men article – and also amazed that it didn’t include the great Aamir Khan – but I guess we admire him for different reasons. So, how […]

Hindi cinema has a long line of outstanding actors that have graced the silver screen over the years.

Written by on December 12th, 2009

Oscar nominated movies are without a doubt a cut above the rest. To their credit, they individually possess a unique script, a talented cast and top-notch production value.

Subhash K Jha: Teree Sang is a sweet and likable spin on premature parenthood

Written by on August 11th, 2009

This is Raj Kapoor’s Bobby with furtive sex and a baby thrown in for good measure. Otherwise the boy-meets-girl formula never seemed more homage-bound. Soft to the touch, but underpinned by a strong message on sex and the single parent, Teree Sang is a sweet and likable spin on premature parenthood. The prim and propah […]

Bollywood and Cricket – A Great Team!

Written by on July 31st, 2009

Thwack! What finer music is there for an Englishman or an Indian than the summer sun-blessed sound of a leather ball being lofted for six by a willowy batsman with his bat of willow? It seems inconceivable then that with the two great cultural monoliths of India being cricket and Bollywood that some intrepid producers […]
