Dabangg 2 has collected around 9.25 crore nett on 2nd Sunday at the box office. Actual may vary. Dabangg 2 total collection after 10 days is around 127.65 crore nett mark. Very Good. Dabangg 2 registered a big jump of around 40% on average from 2nd Saturday. Jump is even more praiseworthy as there is a Cricket Match for whole day.Occupancy was excellent specially for the Evening and Night shows after the match. Overall occupancy for the day was around 50% on average. Dabangg 2 is on course to be the 2nd biggest grosser of the year in quick time. But ETT lifetime record looks a good distance right now.
The Best trended movies of 2012? I don’t want to freak you out, but 2012 is Now over. Wait, that makes no sense.
since I’ve made a best trended [criticaly] top 10 list – and I’m starting to twitch. To that end, I’m taking this opportunity to count
down my 10 favorite movies :
Lots of Movies had Came Out turn Out an Huge Success at BoxOffice But Was they Really liked by Audiences ? Lets Fined which Movie gained Best Trending & WoM this Year 2012.
10- Ek Tha Tiger :
Staring Salman Khan, Commercially Most Successful film of 2012 and earn huge 186cr at India BoxOffice, taking Mixed WoM, But this film Out Of theater after 4th week trending Ratio was very Dull . (more…)
INKAAR: Contemporary films are always welcome, especially from seasoned directors. Sudhir Mishra’s Inkaar, dealing with sexual harassment at workplaces, seems immensely interesting from the promos and the poster and Arjun Rampal and Chitrangda Singh’s sizzling chemistry will make for a great watch hopefully.
RACE 2: Race was one of the best suspense thrillers to have come out of Bollywood. No wonder that Race 2 is being hugely awaited. The promos lacked the Race-type factor and so did the songs. But with Abbas-Mustan at the helm of affiars and talented and glamorous stars comprising the principal cast, here’s hoping Race 2 turns out to be as good or even better than part 1 in terms of action, glamour, humour and most importantly, suspense!
DAVID: A well-edited and presented promo can go a long way in creating excitement for a film, even if the movie doesn’t boast of A-listers. David confirms this fact and its first look trailers have blown away the viewers. Its director Bejoy Nambiar showed his brilliance with Shaitan and with David, he seems to have gone a step higher. Neil Nitin Mukesh looks dashing in a role that reminds one of his smashing debut film, Johnny Gaddaar. Tabu, Chiyaan Vikram, Isha Sharvani and others form the rest of the cast. (more…)
The star is rubbed the wrong way by Imam Siddiqui on Bigg Boss. Seething with anger, Salman threatens to beat him up!
Sonali Joshi Pitale (MID-DAY; December 31, 2012)
The silent protest led by Shabana Azmi resonated with angry sentiments against the administration and judiciary. With hundreds in attendance, the gathering urged the political class to take swift action
Garima Sharma (BOMBAY TIMES; December 31, 2012)
The city that saw nurse Aruna Shanbaug turn into a vegetable 40 years ago after being sexually assaulted by a ward boy and more recently, 25-year-old Pallavi Purkayastha being murdered by a watchman for spurning his sexual advances, erupted in anger once again to the news of Nirbhaya’s death. The 23-year-old Delhi girl, brutally gangraped a fortnight ago, was christened Nirbhaya by The Times Of India for her will to live.
Now, her death seems to have awakened our society, which has been fighting passiveness for a long time. Simultaneous protests erupted in various parts of the country after news of her death spread. In Mumbai, Shabana Azmi called for a silent protest. The march, from Juhu Beach to Kaifi Azmi park, saw many Bollywood and theatre personalities, including Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Nadira Babbar and Om Puri show up. The unanimous sentiment at the march was that cities need to become safer for women and parents shouldn’t feel scared when daughters step out. Jaya Bachchan broke down as she spoke about the “horror” Nirbhaya had faced. Javed Akhtar suggested a few changes, including holding senior police officials accountable for such crimes.
Others like Hema Malini, Ritesh Sidhwani, Goldie Behl, Sonali Bendre, Kalpana Lajmi, Zoya Akhtar, Mahesh Bhatt, Soni Razdan, Sulbha Arya, Lalit Pandit, Tisca Chopra, Mandira Bedi, Shahana Goswami, Vaibhavi Merchant, Ashoke Pandit, Ram Sampath and Sona Mohapatra, too, joined the gathering.
A COLLECTIVE VOICE — THE MEN SPEAK
North Indian boys have a different mindset. If I’d lived there longer, maybe I would’ve become like that, too. They must be taught to respect women. They feel every woman will satisfy their hunger. Punishment is important, but education is far more important — Sonu Nigam
Yeh dardnaak nahi, khaufnaak ghatna hai. This wasn’t just rape, but attempt to murder and to destroy evidence. The police alone cannot do anything. We all must take collective responsibility to change society and its outlook towards women — Om Puri
We’ve gathered here today to intospect what’s happening to our society and why we have such an outlook towards women. Let’s not forget this rape case like all the others we’ve forgotten — Prasoon Joshi
I’m here as part of the youth of the nation and I feel pissed off, ashamed that something so despicable has happened in our country. I am standing here as part of a collective voice. I hope some positive change takes place now — Ranveer Singh
We will not cry. We will not scream. We will not forget, because that would be a great betrayal to the brave girl. Her death is a clarion call. We mustn’t let this anger die down — Shabana Azmi
I come from a family of girls. There are many girls in my family. I feel scared when I think of what the 23-year-old had to go through. Whatever we did was very late. We should collectively apologise to the family — Jaya Bachchan
It’s not something any one of us expected. I am shocked and I am apalled. But beyond this, I have nothing else to add or say — Deepika Padukone
Kareena Kapoor-Khan says she’s finally getting the hang of her new ‘beautiful’ surname
Shakti Shetty (MID-DAY; December 30, 2012)
IT ALL started with Aishwarya Rai when she decided to go ahead and add Bachchan to her surname. After tying the knot with Saif Ali Khan, the latest entrant to this fledgling club in B-Town is Bebo. Earlier, Bollywood actresses usually chose not to tweak their established screen names post wedding. (more…)
MID-DAY (December 31, 2012)
Rakesh Upadhyay is a multifaceted personality. The creative-producer of the recently released grosser Khiladi 786 and business partner to singing sensation and music director-cum-producer Himesh Reshammiya, Rakesh has had a long and successful history with Bollywood. In a chat, he talks about his work in Punjabi cinema and future projects. (more…)
Mehul S Thakkar (MUMBAI MIRROR; December 31, 2012)
The effervescent and charming girl on screen – Katrina Kaif has a rather different side to herself as well. According to a fellow traveler in a recent aircraft the actress had boarded, her in-flight manners are far from her fan-friendly, posing-for-pictures self at airports. (more…)
As told to Aakanksha Naval-Shetye (DNA; December 31, 2012)
I have never ever endorsed capital punishment in my life. But I think these rapists deserve to die. And if it were to me, I’d probably beat them to death with my bare hands. I worry that I may end up taking the law in my own hands if I see any woman being sexually harassed in front of me. I really fail to understand how many innocent souls should be lost to such rapists before the government takes the issue of safety for women seriously. I am appalled and I just don’t have the words that can convey the anger I am feeling about what happened. I am so distraught that I actually feel like crying. I had read somewhere that we are mere inhabitants and not civilians and I agree. I am angered, embarrassed and ashamed of what is happening in our country. I was recently in Kochi shooting for Madras Cafe, and there were a couple of foreigners on the sets. They said they won’t visit Delhi as they don’t want to be raped. The system needs to realise that women’s safety is not an option, it’s a basic right. Stricter laws and fast justice are the need of the hour. Self-empowerment for women is important, but we cannot shrug away our responsibility to ensure that women around us are protected. They need not be our family members, or acquaintances, but we are humans and should behave like one. (more…)

When you go for a movie, you go with the hope to get entertained, thoroughly enjoy, come out with smiling faces and Happy New Year exactly does that. It’s thoroughly entertaining, witty and totally paisa vasool movie and you will come out with smiling faces. We all know what is the story of the movie, we all know there is no secret in the movie, we also know that this is mindless entertainment and we also know that it is somewhat inspired from couple of Hollywood movies but in spite of these “we know things”, I must admit that I thoroughly enjoyed the movie with my family. We all know how good the movie “Chak De India” is and how brilliantly Srk performed but oneRead more...
