Mary Kom Movie Poster

Kareena Kapoor Khan complimented Priyanka Chopra for her stint in Mary Kom

Priyanka Chopra will be seen in the forthcoming biopic titled ‘Mary Kom’. In this film she will be seen in the avatar of a champion boxer. This film revolves around the life of Mary Kom who won big at the Olympics several times. Priyanka Chopra has been receiving a lot of compliments for her role even before the film can release. From the poster and the trailer of this film, we can see that the actress has worked very hard for this role. In the poster we see her in a sporty avatar in a messed up look. The actress portrays zero glamour in this role as it required looking authentic.

Kareena Kapoor recently expressed her thoughts in an interview as she praised Priyanka for her efforts. She said, “I really applaud Rani and Priyanka for Mardaani and Mary Kom. Hats off to the two for even attempting such a different kind of a genre. I definitely tell them this whenever I meet them because I myself can’t do something like this”. Kareena will be seen in the forthcoming sequel ‘Singham Returns’ starring opposite Ajay Devgn who also starred in the original ‘Singham’. She plays the character of a Maharashtrian girl in this film and will be seen speaking a few lines in Marathi during the film. She will also be seen driving an auto rickshaw for a short sequence in this film. It is nice to see that she is openly appreciating the efforts of other lead actresses in the industry.

We realize that Bollwood film makers are putting in efforts to change the gender stereo type that people have. Another film that is set to do this is the forthcoming Rani Mukherjee starrer Mardaani. In this film we see Rani playing the character of a fearless cop. This film revolves around female trafficking and the story depicts the struggles that victims to this heinous crime have to face. Rani Mukerji plays a very bold and strong role as she fights against this crime that demands immediate attention from society. Rani’s look in this film is not glamorous just like Priyanka’s look in ‘Mary Kom’ as she intends to look authentic in her role.
We are now experiencing Bollywood venturing into a genre of movies that are far from just plain entertainment and give us more to ponder about. Mary Kom Movie is set to release on the 5th of September alongside ‘Daawat-e-Ishq’ starring Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Roy Kapur.

Mary Kom is said to be inspired by the biopic on the life of a champion athlete titled ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, starring Farhan Akhtar in the lead role. It will be interesting to watch whether Mary Kom remains to be more successful at the box office after its release. From the poster and trailer of the film we can assume that this film will go on to be a blockbuster at the box office and will be loved by the audience. It is likely that Priyanka Chopra will win awards for her acting performance in this film.

Mardaani Movie Reviews

Tahir Raj Bhasin, plays one of the leads in YRF upcoming movie Mardaani starring Rani Mukerjee

Tahir Raj Bhasin is the newcomer who will be seen in YRF’s next ‘Mardaani’. In this film we will see him play the role of a villain. This will be his debut in Bollywood and some might say he is lucky to have landed himself in one of the leading roles in a Yash Raj Film. He will be sharing screen space with none other than Rani Mukerji. In this film Rani lays the role of a cop who will stop at nothing to fearlessly take down enemies of the society. This film revolves around the grave social issue of female trafficking. The critics are expecting a lot from this film.

Lately we have seen many newcomers in Bollywood. Tahir Bhasin joins this bandwagon of aspiring super stars of Bollywood with great expectations. Armaan Jain was the latest entry to this list of newcomers. He happens to have relations with the Kapoor khaandan and thus had it easy when it came to publicity. He received a lot of support from cousin Rabir Kapoor who has successfully established himself in Bollywood. Along with him, we also saw Deeksha Seth debut alongside in the movie ‘Lekar Hum Deewana Dil’.

It is nice to see new faces in Bollywood, while the established faces are still very much around. For instance, Rani Mukerji has an established career in Bollywood but has been away from the cinema world for a long time now. This film ‘Mardaani’ will be like a comeback for the actress as she resumes her acting career after her marriage to Aditya Chopra. Their marriage took place away from all the media attention far away in Italy. Only close friends and family members were a part of this ceremony and celebration.

Rani Mukerji has reduced her public appearances to be limited to movie promotions and she has chosen to stay away from the limelight. We wonder if her reserved husband Aditya Copra has a part in this. We are yet to see if Rani’s role in Mardaani lands her in the limelight again. In an interview Rani stated that she takes her acting career seriously and it will always be her main priority. She stated that she will always choose to stay dedicated to her acting career no matter what.

We are yet to see whether Tahir Bhasin makes it big in Bollywood post the release of Mardaani. He will closely be watched by critics in this film as he gives makes a first impression in the world of Bollywood. We hope he adds to the list of quality actors in Bollywood. Without any filmy influence from his family background, it will be a great achievement if he makes it to the list that includes the top Bollywood actors in the industry. He has been a part of intensive acting workshops where he trained in acting and body language. This film will show us if his efforts and training really paid off. Mardaani is set to release on the 5th of September.

Mardaani Movie Reviews

Rani Mukherjee shoots a special national anthem for Mardaani

A Yash Raj banner film starring the versatile Rani Mukerjee. Rani Mukerjee is back after a long time in the movies and we must agree she looks mesmerizing in her tough avatar. This movie revolves around the role of underworld in female trafficking. In this movie a girl named named Pyaari is the victim of trafficking. The story unfolds revealing how Rani Mukerjee who plays of a stringent, strict police officer undermines the person responsible for the girl selling racket within 30 days. This movie promises to be one of the finest roles of Rani’s career.

The actress will be featuring in the video singing the national anthem along with real life female cops. The cops in the video will start from the post of a constable to the top most official in the hierarchy. Pradeep Sarkar said ‘Shooting the National Anthem with the women police force & Rani was quite an exhilarating experience. The Anthem itself gives you the goosebumps and on top of that, the Women Power of India singing it all together makes you stand up in pride and salute the true Shakti present in all the Mardaani‘s of India’. The film will highlight the sensitive subject of Human trafficking.

Rani Mukerjee recently visited Jhalak Dhiklaja 7 for the promotion of her upcoming movie Mardaani. She looked ravishing in her black and gold Anarkali dress as she pulled her hair behind into a neat half pony. As Mrs.Chopra arrived on the sets of Jhalak she has giving a treatment that would be giving to a pregnant lady like extra pillows and she also arrived late as she had to visit the doctor because she is down with flu.

But she looked pretty stunning for a person down with flu. The rumors of Rani being pregnant are doing the rounds. Her PR jumped out with a clarification saying “We were astonished to know of false information doing the rounds on Ms.Mukerji. She is suffering from a severe case of viral fever and with great difficulty she went ahead with her prior commitment to visit the sets of Jhalak dikhla jaa as part of promotions of Movie Mardaani and completed all that was required of her on set. Her sheer professionalism is what made it possible for her to shoot. Request you to not resort to unnecessary conjecture.” Whether pregnant or not Rani sure did attract a lot of attention and invoked the interest of people who would otherwise not watch Tv. Rani Mukerjee was there to promote her upcoming film Mardaani. This movie promises to be one of the finest roles of Rani’s career. The Promo of the movie is an interesting one and was appreciated by actors like Aamir Khan and Karan Johar. Rani is seen performing Krav Maga an Israeli artial art that helps in self defense. She had to go rough vigorous training for the movie.

Rani also mentioned that every girl should learn this technique for self protection, with the increasing no. of rapes Krav Maga is a must. The trailer as features Rani in an whole new tough cop attire, where she is pulling off the raw police officer look pretty well. And to top it all her bindass mumbaikar language is so amusing Rani is always seen in different types of roles like “Kuch Kuch hota hai” to “No one killed Jessica”. Her performance in Chunri mai laga daag was extremely brilliant she is one of the finest actresses Bollywood has. Rani Mukerjee has come back in the movies after a long time now but this time it is with a big bang. Everyone is very excited for the movie is as good as the trailer itself. The movie is due to hit the screen for its initial release on 22nd August (USA).

Sanjay Leela Bhansali says: Priyanka has captured the soul of Mary Kom

Priyanka Chopra is all set to play the action packed role of ‘Mary Kom’ in her forthcoming film with the same title. Mary Kom is a biopic on the life of a champion boxer who made us proud at the Olympics several times. This film is set to capture the story of her journey to success and the struggles she had to face to get to the top. Priyanka Chopra has indeed taken up a role that is very challenging and required her to portray the life of a boxer. The actress seemed to work very hard for this role as we can see from the poster and the trailer of this film. We see the actress in a completely different avatar ready to take down any opponent in a boxing match. Her look in this poster is far from glamourous as she had to look authentic in the role of a real life champion boxer. Any amount of glamour would do injustice to the role.

Mary Kom Movie Poster

Sanjay Leela Bhansali happens to be the co-producer of  Mary Kom Movie and he seems to be blown away with Priyanka’s performance in the role she was required to play. He expressed this thought as he said, “We wanted to tell Mary Kom’s story. Her life has everything. Drama, passion, valour, warmth, humour. Her story was waiting to be told on screen. I am honoured that we are doing it.” It seems like Priyanka’s got it perfect this time. The actress has always taken up challenging role in the past and this role as a champion boxer is only an addition to the list of the roles that prove that Priyanka Chopra is a versatile actor and is not afraid to experiment with the characters she plays in films. Priyanka also pulled off challenging roles in films like ‘Barfi’ and ‘7 Khoon Maaf’.

It will be very interesting to watch Priyanka portray the life of a champion boxer who made it big despite all the struggles she had to face. This film also set an example and breaks the stereo type that women can’t be good at a sport that is usually associated by masculinity. Another film that has the same mind-set is the forthcoming crime centric film titled ‘Mardaani’. This film has Rani Mukerji in the lead role playing the character of a cop that will stop at nothing when it comes to eradicating crime from the society. It is nice to know that Bollywood has taken to women centric films that have an overall impact on society as a whole.

As for ‘Mary Kom’, which is set to release on the 5th of September, critics keep high expectations from this film that follows the trend of a sports biopic from the likes of ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ which focused on the life of champion athlete Milkha Singh. Bollywood seems to be in the mood for appreciating and honouring sports star by dedicating a film that showcases their success. In this way, these films also act as encouragement and inspiration to upcoming sports stars.

Creature 3D movie posters

Bipasha is back in Vikram Bhatt’s ‘Creature 3D’

After Humshakals got slapped and punched in the face at the box office. Bipasha is all set to spook the audience with her upcoming movie Creature after Razz. The trailer of the movie is out which lasts for 2.25secs, it features a quintessential love story with twist and that twist is a weird creature which looks like a bhalu and a dinosaur. The trailer dint really set the mark straight but it sure does remind me of Hollywood movies like “The Anaconda”. But this movie is different from the other movies that are going to hit the screens this season.

The movie is a monster thriller science fiction film directed by Vikram Bhatt. It stars Abas Naqvi. The tall fair and handsome Pakistani boy Abas Naqvi is known for his black leather jacket attire. The black leather jacket is like a style statement. I wonder how he manages to pull his personalized look off in this excruciating heat. Mr. Naqvi was one of the most famous TV serial actors back in Pakistan. He saw fame with the success of the family dramas like Meri Zaat Zarra-e-Benishan , Vasl , Noor Bano.

Naqvi haad turned down three Bollywood projects Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Guzaarish, Mohit Suri’s Aashiqui 2 and Anthony D’Souza’s Boss as he couldn’t manage the dates with his other Pakistani projects. The Bollywood debutant will be seen in the upcoming movie Vikram Bhatt’s Creature 3D alongside Bipasha Basu. A little birdie also told us that Abas is busy shooting for other two projects as well Funalu and Raqs. After the Humshakals controversy Bipasha is all set for her upcoming movie. It was reported that Bipasha basu was upset with The Humshakals producer for cutting her scenes in the movie. These rumors started to surface when Bipasha was missing during the promotion of the movie. But the producer has a different version of the story to tell. Hmm God knows who is speaking the truth our bong bombshell Bips or the producer. Bipasha is always been in her sexy avatar in real as well as reel life.

In movies like Dhoom, Humshakals, Jism she looks all ravishing apart from her horror movie Razz so expectation from Bipasha is pretty high. While Bips is busy with shooting Abas has been the part of many interviews these days, he also went on to say that “Everything in Bollywood is so magnificent”. We agree with you nawab. I say nawab because he played the role of a Nawab in one of his daily dramas. I must say the Nawab character would suit him pretty well. A lot has been going on in Bollywood these days many new faces are on the rise and many new movies are all set for release. Creature 3D will hit the cinema screens on 12th September.

Khoobsurat Movie Reviews

Coming Soon: Fawad Khan and Sonam Kapoor on comedy nights with Kapil

Off Recently “Comedy Nights with Kapil” has emerged as a brand in itself. The show is visited by famous stars every weekend, mostly to promote their upcoming movies. This show allows us to have a close look at the personality of the stars and many a time explores their funny side. The entire Bollywood fraternity uses the Comedy Nights with Kapil Platform to promote their movie, how can the fashionista of Bollywood lack behind. Yes I am talking about the big mouthed Soonam Kapoor. Soonam is known to stir a big controversy after she visits a reality show.

The Delhi6 actress is going to visit the show for the promotion of her next movie “Khoobsurat”. She will be accompanied by her leading man in the movie Fawad Khan. The movie Khoobsurat is the 2014 remake of 1980’s film of the same name starring Rekha, Rakesh Roshan and Dina Pathak. It was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee and produced by Hrishikesh Mukherjee and N.C. Sippy. Khoobsurat won that year’s Filmfare Best Movie Award and Rekha won the Best Actress Award. The movie was a phenomenal success remembered even today for Rekha’s outstanding performance. This year’s remake of the movie stars our very own version of Audrey Hepburn, Sonam Kapoor alongside Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Afzal Khan. Also present are Ratna Pathak Shah, yes daughter of the same Dina Pathak who played the role of the strict, rule abiding Nirmala Gupta in the original version. Khoobsurat is directed by debutante Shashanka Ghosh and produced by Anil Kapoor and Siddharth Roy Kapur. There is however a slight twist and a modern take to the story this time. Sonam Kapoor plays the role of a Physiotherapist who is free, jovial, loud, funny and fashionable and Fawad plays the role of a Rajput prince. Everybody in the Rathore household is enamored by Nirmala Devi Rathore and religiously abides by everything she says or rather, orders. Khoobsurat is a story of how two distinctly polar and opposite individuals fall in love with each other.

Fawad has earned a huge fan following all credits to “Zindagi Gulzar Hai” which is broadcasted on Zindagi Channel. When asked about his reaction on the criticism, he said: “The people you are talking about are very few. There will be people who will criticize. They are entitled to their opinion. Even if someone from India goes to work there, someone or the other will make noise.” He also went on to say that ‘Art knows no culture or creed’. Fawad is a Pakistani singer and actor he has also received two Lux style awards and is one of the highest paid actors of Pakistan.. Khan has been featured in a numerous commercials including, Servis Shoes, Mobilink, QMobile, TUC Biscuit and Clean & Clear Shampoo.

Last time when Soonam visited “The Koffee with Karan” show. She left behind a long trail of controversies by making senseless remarks and god she just wouldn’t stop speaking. And the time when Deepika and Soonam made unwanted remarks about Ranbir Kapoor and many others people in the industry, Soonam carried the tag of a “Bitchy Girl” along with her. Let’s hope ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’ a “No controvery zone” show. But when its Soonam it has to be something big and bitchy.

Tamannaah Bhatia gets herself a dog after working with a dog in its Entertainment

Tamannaah Bhatia had been wanting anxiously since childhood to get herself a dog as her pet, but her mother did not allow a pet at home, so she had to give up the wish of a dog and to do without one. But looks like ‘its Entertainment’ proved to be lucky for her. While shooting for her forthcoming comedy film, It’s Entertainment, her feelings got pumped and revived when she got to shoot and work closely with a dog, who is starring along with Akshay Kumar in the lead and whose name has influenced the name of the film. The star dog Golden Retriever who plays the character of Entertainment in the film Its Entertainment proved to be a strong source inspiration and influence for the lead actress Tamannah Bhaita to actually get herself a pet dog at home. “I always wanted a dog and after working with one in Its Entertainment I became doubly sure. While working with Junior I really found the need to have one. I have always loved dogs,” says actress Tamanah Bhaita.

The gorgeous actress has named her new pet Pebble, which is a mixed breed of a Belington and a Poodle. Talking about her movie she says, “Initially I found the title It’s Entertainment to be strange. But now since I have a dog at home I can completely relate to it. And though it is Akshay who shares screen space with the dog most of the time, the few scenes that I have did make me realise its value as a companion.

Its Enteraintment is an upcoming slapstick comedy film that promises more fun and laughter than ever with worthy messages. This movie conveys beautiful message about humanity and the difference between human nature towards greed and unconditional love of animals. We all are aware that dogs are known for their loyalty and unconditional love and many of our Bollywood celebs own and love their dogs. Akshay Kumar‘s forthcoming entertainer titled Its Entertainment has a Golden Retriever dog, who is not just some pet in the film, but plays a parallel lead with the star Aksha Kumar, to such an extent that this film is named after his character.

The movie casts Akshay Kumar in the lead and Tamannaah Bhatia, Mithun Chakraborty Krishna Abhishek, Johnny Lever, Prakash Raj, Sonu Sood , Vrajesh Hirjee and Hiten Tejwanithe. The film is produced by Ramesh S. Taurani of Tips Industries Ltd. Entertainment is schedules to release on 8 August 2014. It’s Entertainment is an enchanting story with so much spun, fun, humor and great lesson to learn entrapped in it. Akshay Kumar has been known to give one hits after the other and we hope this film also slides into his hit list. Akshay is looking forward to this film and hopes it to hit the box office. Akshay also awaits his second upcoming Movie Gabbar. Gabbar is hes forthcoming action and drama movie. The film features Akshay Kumar in the lead role with Nikitin Dheer, Prakash Raj, Govind Namdev and Sonu Sood. Shruti Haasan is in the lead female role. It is scheduled to release on 15th August along with Rohit Shetty and Ajay Devgn’s Singham Returns, which is a sequel of Singham realsed in 2011.
