  • Desi Boyz Drops On Monday

    Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network Desi Boyz dropped on Monday as it collected around 3.50-3.75 crore nett as per early estimates. Delhi and Punjab held up best but most other places were 50-60% down from Friday collections. Even if all India collections showed a 50% drop it would not have been so great as the weekend was below the mark. The first week is heading for collections in the 35-36 crore nett region and it is likely the film will wrap up its lifetime business with less than 50 crore nett. The second week is likely to take a big hit with the release of The Dirty Picture and even after that there are major releases every week so it gives very little chance to Desi Boyz

  • AARAKSHAN MOVIE REVIEW BY TARAN ADARSH

    A Prakash Jha film is talked about for more reasons than one. It provides food for thought. It sets you thinking. Be it DAMUL, MRITYUDAND, GANGAAJAL, APAHARAN or RAAJNEETI, there was enough fodder in each of those films. Besides, each of those films left an indelible impression on the minds of the viewer. So, quite naturally, the expectations from his new release AARAKSHAN are enormous. This one also tackles a rather serious social issue — caste-based reservation. However, AARAKSHAN not only talks about reservation, but also about the commercialization of educational institutions. Not many storytellers have repeatedly succeeded in creating pragmatic films on societal matters, but Jha holds the distinction of doing so in film after film. Be it DAMUL [on bonded labor], MRITYUDAND [on

  • Taran Adarsh Review-Singham 4.5/5

    he trend of atypical masala entertainers began all over again with WANTED, which was effectively emulated by the super-successful DABANGG. The larger-than-life hero knocks down 50 thugs and sends them flying in the air with just one punch. He romances the heroine. Puts his life at stake by catching the bull by the horns. Emerges victorious in the finale… Come to think of it, the Indian audience is starved for true-blue masala entertainers that were admired and revered in the 1970s and 1980s. Oh, can we ever forget the serpentine queues outside cinema halls to watch those movies, starring our fav stars? With SINGHAM, the Ajay Devgn – Rohit Shetty team goes back to their roots; both started with action films, if you recall —

  • ‘Dabangg 2′ brings out the writer in Salman Khan

    After the dud called Veer, one assumed that Salman Khan would never touch pen and paper to write a script. But to everyone’s surprise, he decided to don the garb of a script writer once again for a sequel to his last year’s blockbuster hit Dabangg.

  • Ready Movie Review-Taran Adarsh

    So are you ready for the first biggie of the season? Who isn’t, actually? Love him, loathe him, but you can’t overlook him. Salman Khan is, without doubt, the sweetheart of the masses. No two opinions on that! But here’s a word of caution. READY is NOT for the rigid detractors or counterfeit scholars of Hindi cinema who masquerade as messiah of meaningful cinema. They rebuke masala films, ridicule big stars, detest anything and everything associated with ‘commercial cinema’ — a genre cherished by a wide majority of audiences. They wrote off DABANGG [which recently won the coveted National Award], pulled down the super entertainer GOLMAAL 3, scoffed at YAMLA PAGLA DEEWANA [the biggest hit of 2011 so far], even panned the iconic 3 IDIOTS

  • Reflections: Salman Khan – Has the sleeping lion been woken up?

    Kya yeh phir se same-same cheez har picture mein karega?’ That’s pretty much the question which is heard near the aisles whenever a talk veers towards Salman Khan. After all the man has brought back ‘masala’ into the vogue and how. With Wanted and Dabangg being huge money spinners and Ready all set to lead to a hat trick, there is no doubt that the man has won over the masses in a big way. However, an overdose of anything is not quite a favourable option for any and every superstar. No wonder, even hardcore fans of Salman are expected to ask for that ‘something different’ from him after a while. The going is good for Salman as of now and the way things stand

  • Salman’s jungle film in 3D!

    Imagine Salman Khan’s too-hot-to-handle abs. And now imagine it in 3D. Beating the other Khans, Salman has now decided to go three dimensional in his next film Sher Khan. “First of all I am not playing Tarzan in the film and it has got nothing to do with the character at all. It is an adventure film based in a jungle,” clarified Salman Khan about his next endeavour with his brother Sohail. While he dismisses any link to the famous man of the jungle in Sher Khan, the brothers are reportedly toying with the idea of making the film in 3D. Our source told us, “It is Sohail’s idea to make it in 3D. However, Salman bhai is still in two minds about this. Shooting
