I am bit confused about Phantom
On one hand they have named all the real names of masterminds behind 26/11 attacks and the actors look just like them. It needs guts to name those who are still out at large with followings in their home country which could pose a serious threats to the director or anyone associated with the film anywhere and anytime.
On the Other hand the screenplay lacks which impacts good direction by Kabir. For example, the execution of the targets that takes places is shot brilliantly but it don’t impact on the viewers that such thing was really executed, it lacked conviction.
I think Kabir got carried away with the emotions related to 26/11 while shooting but failed to recreate that onscreen or in reel life. The impact or the thrill was missing whenever each target is executed or action took place. The whole Syrian mission (Though shot well with brilliant locales) hindered the flow of the movie that could have been taken out of the book without screwing the mission. Continue reading
Writer-Director S.S. Rajamouli’s epic fantasy Baahubali: The Beginning, the most expensive production in the history of Indian cinema, has been crushing box office records from the day of its release.
The $40 million period film beat previous record holder Happy New Year to score the biggest domestic opening day and opening weekend ever for a film in India, and the fourth biggest worldwide opening ever for an Indian movie.
The visual effects heavy story centers on two rival brothers who battle for supremacy over a rich medieval kingdom.
Detective Byomkesh Bakshy – Truly Spectacularly Different
Very few movies have been path breaking and DBB is one of them. It should be compared to the best of Hollywood movies. The settings, the costumes, the cinematography & the screenplay are Oscar worthy. The movie is very fast paced and if one doesn’t notice things or understand the followings then one will be like the character “Bhuvan Babu’s” son. It’s very amusing to find such movies made in Bollywood. This movie is in totally different league and the very opening scene itself affirms my claim.
Sushant Singh is Outstanding and the actor who played the character of Dr is brilliant but the main Hero is the director and so is the director Dibaker Banerjee. Take a bow Mr. Banerjee. Take a Bow.
Yes! The movie is truly Spectacular in its treatment, absolutely different kind of a movie that one has hardly seen in Indian cinema for a very long time and its soul is complete Desi yet Superior in Quality.
The unraveling of plot, build-up of suspense, twists and the details captured were intriguing, fascinating and engrossing. Overall an OUTSTANDING MOVIE OF THE YEAR. 5/5 Continue reading

It looks like the All India Bakc..d (AIB)’s troubles over the December 20 ‘Roast’ show featuring Karan Johar, Arjun Kapoor, Ranveer Singh are far from over.
The latest in the controversy is the film industry’s spokesperson filmmaker Ashok Pandit claiming that the AIB had no official clearance to stage the controversial stage show which has ripped open an entire moral discussion on the social network.

The AIB has done none of these. They got no bloody clearance to have the show,” states Pandit angrily. Continue reading
Bollywood suffers from ‘gora-phobia’. Any sign of a collusion with a caucasian actor has even the biggest of our stars turning into jelly with excitement.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui who has lately become an actor to reckon with, is now on a firangi trip. Last week the papers were flooded with Nawaz’s PR overdrive claiming that he was being “paired opposite” Nicole Kidman in Garth Davis’ Lion.
Some careful probing reveals some very embarrassing facts about this sensational spot of casting (Kidman and Nawaz together does look like an unlikely combination).
A source very close to the project reveals, “I don’t know why Nawaz has created the impression that he’s paired opposite Nicole Kidman. Nawaz doesn’t have one shot with Nicole Kidman. He is in the film for sure. But he features in one episode and Nicole in another. They don’t even come face-to-face in the film.” Continue reading
