London Beckons Bollywood/Television With Attaractive Tax-Relief Benefits!

London Beckons Bollywood/Television With Attaractive Tax-Relief Benefits!

With an attractive new Creative Sector Tax Relief (CSTR) coming into effect 2013 in Britain, London has thrown open its doors for Bollywood and the Indian television industry to plan their future ventures in that city, a top visiting dignitary said in Mumbai on Thursday.

Visiting London Mayor Boris Johnson said the new CSTR, along with the existing tax benefits already available to filmmakers and film co-production agreement between India and Britain, would make London even more attractive for members of Indian showbiz.


BollyWood Movie Review:Talaash

Aamir Khan’s ‘Talaash’ leaves us spell-bound He, and director Reema Kagti, gives us one of the most riveting movies to call our own.

‘Talaash’ is an incredibly rousing tale of deceit, betrayal and revenge,set against the backdrop of an unforgiving city. It’s a story that forces us to look beyond the obvious, and explore the unknown. The narrative is slow,and intended, brilliantly capturing the essence of what truly lies beneath. We surrender to director Reema Kagti’s,and writer-director Zoya Akhtar’s, exquisite story, allowing them to influence our sensibilities ,unquestioningly.

As the curtains go up and credits roll, we are introduced to a mesmeric
Mumbai that awakens to a whole new world at night through
Mohanan’s mesmeric frames and Ram Sampat’s foot-tapping beats.Just minutes on, a famous actor is found speeding to his death, as three unsuspecting witnesses watch the events unravel in front of their eyes. A police investigation is summoned, and earnest cop Surjan Singh Sekhawat is appointed to handle it.He examines the witnesses whose frank observations don’t quite explain the tragic end. It leads to an excruciatingly, daunting journey that forces him to push his boundaries, and accept the incomprehensible.

Reema’s incredible genius lies in her ability to involve the audience
without unveiling too much until the very end. And, it’s those few moments of revelation that’s the most riveting. Aamir turns Surjan into a credible cop, minus the Bollywood clichés
that surround every uniformed hero these days. He gives Surjan
immense depth and authority, controlling our emotions and moulding
our beliefs with finesse. From taking down street rogues without any remorse, to stepping out
to save the life of a streetwalker, to being sensitive to his wife’s
inability to move on, to trusting another woman of questionable
reputation, there are numerous layers to Surjan’s personality. While you’d question some of his decisions, you’d never doubt his
integrity. Despite investing his every wakeful hour in solving the murder
mystery, it’s the burden of losing his young son that constantly
harasses him. An unfortunate event, which he believes he had caused
due to his negligence. Although he checks in his wife for medical assistance, Surjan refuses to
accept he is suffering himself and spends every night reliving the
horrors of that fateful day. His wife, played by a make-up-less, light-eyed Rani Mukerji, appears
more eager to nurse her aching heart and find ways to deal with her
grief. She’s exceptional as the wounded woman who is unable to solve her
failing marriage, and prefers to ignore the bad and focus on the
positive. Despite being projected as the weaker parent, she shows
great strength and resilience. Kareena Kapoor pouts and charms as the third crucial character Rosy, as
she controls Surjan’s psyche immeasurably. Although she has dolled up
to step into the murky red-light zone in her earlier movie ‘Chameli’,this act is far more convincing and daunting. Among the supporting cast, Nawazuddin Siddiqui is exemplary as the imping Tehnur, who hopes to benefit from the murky dealings to win his freedom, and Shernaz Patel plays the intrusive, quirky neighbour with aplomb. Reema and Zoya have worked out the most enthralling suspense drama without succumbing to any Bollywood cliché. Even Ram Sampath’s striking musical compositions are played to accentuate the narrative and not puncture it. Continue reading

‘Action works best when blended with comedy’-Akshay Kumar

by Soumita Sengupta (November 29, 2012)
He was known for his stunts before he moved to the comedy genre. But 12 years later, with Khiladi 786, Akshay Kumar is back where he began. Kumar talks about being Khiladi and why raw action doesn’t work any more.

Being Khiladi

I think the true meaning of ‘khiladi’ is someone who takes care of his parents. Maintaining an athletic body, being focused on one’s work and working hard are secondary. The most important thing is to take care of my parents.
What makes you the perfect khiladi?
Ever since I joined this industry, I have been called ‘Khiladi Kumar’. I have carried this tag for 20 years. It’s a name that was given to me so I didn’t try and lose the tag.

Why the break from action films
Twelve years ago, I did Khiladi 420. I stopped when I got married and I also wanted to do more comedy films, more romantic films, because when you become a husband or father, one has to settle down a little. Now that my son has grown up, I want to go back to doing action films. Khiladi 786 has over-the-top action and I call it a comedy-action-masala film.

Still gets scared
I still feel scared. There are two types of fear – good and bad. The former makes you careful. I always go by my instincts before a shot like this.

Toughest shot to date
My toughest shot was in Khiladi 420, when I had to jump from the top of a moving airplane.

Action is superficial today
Today, the audience wants over-the-top action along with comedy. And why not? Life is very busy and who doesn’t want three hours of entertainment? We are here to entertain them.

Today everyone is doing action-comedy
When I made my debut to this industry, the comedy genre didn’t exist. It began with Hera Pheri. Till then, overseas business from comedy films was nil. Then, comedy began to work; it’s action that doesn’t work overseas. But when you blend it with comedy, it does. Comedy doesn’t mean watching comedians; the script has to be funny. The audience wants a solo hero and wants him to be everything. One has to learn comedy, it is the most difficult thing to do.

My views on TALAASH


Nowadays, the superstars have made it customary to release their film during holidays or ‘long extended weekends’. That way, the profit is maximum and the film manages to break many a records in its lifetime. In such a scenario, Aamir Khan’s Talaash is releasing tomorrow (November 30) which is a working Friday. No extended weekends, no holidays – Talaash is releasing on a regular Friday. Moreover, the film isn’t one of those ‘safe’ commercial flicks. It’s a suspense drama and not a thriller. The songs are melodious but not of ‘chartbuster’ variety and the album is devoid of an item number.

Thankfully, the film has made many people curious and viewers are excited to catch up the film. The star cast is a plus point too. Besides Aamir, there’s Rani Mukerji, Kareena Kapoor, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Raj Kumar Gupta. The film is directed by Reema Kagti, who earlier made Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd and is produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani who are associated with good qualitative cinema. The cost of the film is reasonable and film is expected to have a healthy weekend. Even though the film gets thumbs up from the viewers, cynics will raise the point that it will not break the box office record of 3 Idiots (202 crores). And that’s obviously not going to happen. That the film is releasing on a working day and is not a regular Bollywood entertainer (that collects crores easily) is something that should not be ignored. As for the film, it stars Aamir Khan, a superstar who very rarely disappoints. So here’s hoping Talaash doesn’t disappoint too and hope viewers have a rocking time with the film! Continue reading

Priyanka Chopra finds support in fans, Shah Rukh Khan

Aakansha Naval-Shetye (DNA; November 29, 2012)


Enlarge ImagePriyanka Chopra’s friendship with co-star Shah Rukh Khan has been under the scanner. Their proximity had sent gossip-mongers into a frenzy, linking the two. A few B-Towners too did not refrain from taking swings at PC publicly. The two however preferred to maintain a dignified silence and not add fuel to the rumours. Their silence led to a large section of the industry and the junta to believe that the reports of their alleged affair had driven a wedge in their friendship. Continue reading

Kareena to sport Salman’s trademark glares in Dabangg 2 song


Aakansha Naval-Shetye (DNA; November 29, 2012)


Bollywood hottie Kareena Kapoor is known to share a rather deep bond with her co-star Salman Khan and the actor too is known to be very fond of Bebo. So, when it came to translating this friendship onscreen, Kareena not only agreed to do a special item number in Salman’s Dabangg 2, but has also imitated his trademark style. The song Fevicol Se, which has already been creating much buzz sees the actress sport Salman’s stylish glares that have become synonymous with the Dabangg brand. Says an insider, “A sequence has been shot in the song where Kareena dons Salman bhai’s Dabangg frames. Farah (filmmaker-choreographer Farah Khan) wanted some element in the song that was massy, yet uber cool and so we decided to give Kareena the shades contrasting her lucknowi dhoti-kurta look and she has rocked the look completely. She was more than happy to imitate the style of one of her fave co-stars.” Continue reading

Ranbir will have to bulk up for Kishore Kumar biopic-Anurag Basu

Subhash K Jha (MUMBAI MIRROR; November 29, 2012)


That Ranbir Kapoor will play Kishore Kumar in Anurag Basu’s biopic on the legendary singer has been reported earlier. The latest on this front is the actor will require at least six months of preparation and a minimum of 1 1/2 years of shooting for what is being billed as the most difficult role of his career yet.

It doesn’t end there. Ranbir will have to sport three looks in the film to portray three different stages in Kishore Kumar’s life. And the toughest aspect of this transition will be the weight gain. The older Kishore will have to be at least 12-15 kg heavier than his younger avatar.

Basu confirmed the news and said, “Ranbir will have to bulk up in the course of the character’s development. Ranbir will have to play Kishore right from the time he was 19 till he turned 58. It is not going to be easy at all for Ranbir.” Continue reading
