  • ‘Satyamev Jayate’ vs ‘Talaash’: Should Aamir Khan practise what he preached?

    New Delhi: For close to three months Bollywood actor Aamir Khan made Indians squirm with guilt and denial and forced them to face their dark side over a series of well researched and executed social documentaries on rampant social inequalities. The straight talking, intense host of ‘Satyamev Jayate’ tore apart the moribund traditions that manifested in gender specific selections of foetuses, caste discrimination and abuse of the elderly. He made a nation sit up and take notice of the hypocrisies that its people passed off as convention. He even moved the stone-hearted with stories so grim that they’d make your skin crawl. All the more reason why ‘Talaash’ was such a letdown because its lead protagonist and social torch bearer compromised the stand he took

  • Aamir Khan postponed ‘Dhoom 3’ shooting

    Perfectionist Aamir Khan pushed back the ‘Dhoom 3’ shooting schedule due to some reasons. The December and January schedule has been postponed to the end of February 2013.

A source informed that Aamir needed to rehearse for his action scenes and so the shooting has been pushed back. Another source close to the project says, “The ten-day December schedule from 7th to 17th was postponed because Aamir needed to promote ‘Talaash’.” However, Yashraj spokesperson gave Aamir the sufficient time he needs for ‘Talaash’ promotion.

  • Why Bollywood is giving such importance to Southern remakes

    New Delhi: Once upon a time films from the south were family socials. Gemini, Prasad and other banners promoted cute products celebrating wholesome family values where virtue always vanquished evil and the good, honest protagonist and the loyal, sacrificing heroine always saw the cruel, conniving baadie off to tra-ta into the unset. Interestingly, the character actors and actresses were invariably paired off to give it a real feel-good happy ending. They may not have been the no. 1 brand of the movie-goers but they did have a sizable market among the orthodox, conservative, god-fearing constituency, pan-India. It was an innocent time, the 50′s and 60′s, with neither consumerism, globalization nor technology to rain on their parade. With time that genre faded out and while heroines
