Our Hindi Film Industry loves chemistry. Let’s be more specific. Hindi Film Industry loves “Formula”. The formula for Success to be even more specific. Since the success of  Dangal, Neerja, MS Dhoni and many such biopics at the box office, it looks like the Bollywood writers have got their new success Mantra.  There are more than 15 Biopics that are announced for next 2 years, out of with 13 are most probably going to release in 2018. This figure doesn’t include the biopics which are not officially announced.



Let’s see the list of these 13 Movies which will make 2018 – A Year of Biopics in Bollywood.

1. Accidental Prime Minister – In this Biopic Anupam Kher is going to play the Ex-Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. The film is based on the 2014 memoir of the same name by Sanjaya Baru. It is directed by Vijay Gutte who is turning Director from this but the interesting aspect is that Hansal Mehta is writing it for the screen who has earlier made Shahid which was also a biopic based on the life of Lawyer Shahid Azmi. What we can’t wait is to see the casting apart from Anupam Kher. I mean who is going to play Mrs. Sonia Gandhi? 

 

2. Super 30-  This is under talk for a long time. Queen Director Vikas Bahl has taken rights from Anand Kumar to make a Biopic on his life. Anand Kumar, who is a renowned mathematician and teacher running a special school for underprivileged kids since 2002. With More than 390 students from his institute has been selected to IIT colleges, Mr. Anand gains international glory with even Discovery covered him in one of its documentaries. As far as we know, Hrithik Roshan is going to play Anand Kumar.   

 

3. Manikarnika-  With this Biopic, the Queen of our industry is literally turning into a Queen on screen. Kangana Ranaut is all set to play “Rani Laxmi Bai” in Manikarnika- The Queen Of Jhansi. Many of us have doubt about the title but Manikarnika was the original name of Rani Laxmi Bai, which makers have decided to pick as the main title. Earlier Sushmita Sen also tried to make a Biopic on the life of warrior queen of Jhansi but for some reasons, the film got shelved. Later, Ketan Mehta tried it for a long time. Allegedly, He even approached Kangana to play the title role.   But now, We can see that Krish is directing this film whereas Bahubali Writer Mr. Vijayendra Prasad is writing the screenplay. TV Actress Ankita Lokhande is also going to play an important role in this feature. It was long due for Bollywood to make a movie on Legendary Laxmi Bai. We just hope it matches our expectations. 



4. Gold-  Based on the life of legendary hockey player Balbir Singh Sr., This Biopic covers the story of the first Gold Medal win by independent India in Olympics Games. This is a comeback film of director Reema Kagti who has earlier directed Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd and Talaash. The most interesting part of the project is that Akshay Kumar is collaborating with Excel Entertainment for the first time. This is gonna be one epic historical sports drama. 

 

5. Soorma – Another Hockey Drama but this time a bit contemporary story. Soorma is based on the life of legendary hockey player Sandeep Singh who was paralyzed and wheelchair-bound for 2 years after an accidental gunshot injured him in 2006. The film’s tagline is “The Greatest Comeback Story of the Hockey Legend Sandeep Singh”. Fighting against all odds, Sandeep got back on his feet and made a stunning comeback in 2008. India won the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in 2009 under his captainship and went on to qualify for the London Olympics 2012. Casting can’t be perfect – Diljit Dosanjh and Taapsee Pannu. The film is directed by Shaad Ali, yes Saathiya and Okay Jaanu’s director. 

 

6. Rakesh Sharma Biopic- India’s first cosmonaut – First man to go into space from India. We all know his name- Rakesh Sharma but we don’t know the story behind this man. Siddharth Roy Kapur is producing this film. Aamir Khan and Priyanka Chopra was supposed to do this film together but the latest development is that Aamir has walkred out of the project and now Shahrukh Khan is going to play the title role. Whatever is the cast going to be, We hope that we will see this film in 2018 only. Though chances are bleak. 

7. Pad Man- According to Wikipedia, Arunachalam Muruganatham is a social entrepreneur from Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu. He is the inventor of a low-cost sanitary pad making machine and is credited for innovating grass-roots mechanisms for generating awareness about traditional unhygienic practices around menstruation in rural India. His mini-machines, which can manufacture sanitary pads for less than a third of the cost of commercial pads, have been installed in 23 of the 29 states of India. He is currently planning to expand the production of these machines to 106 nations. In 2014, TIME magazine placed him on its list of 100 Most Influential People in the World. In 2016, he was awarded Padma Shri by Government of India. Supposedly Twinkle Khanna chased him to get the right of his story. R. Balki has written the screenplay and directing this project. But interestingly a movie named “phullu” which got released unceremoniously has a very similar storyline.

 

8. Padmavati- Lot of people won’t accept this as a viable entry in this list as there is no historical proof of the existence of Rani Padmini of Chittor. But even if we ignore this fact, Padmavati has many real-life characters like Khilji and Ratan Singh. Though Padmavati is supposed to release on 1 Dec 2017 but then we all know what has happened. We just hope that film gets a proper release in 2018. Can’t you see Deepika in PRAYER MODE? Jokes apart! We want to watch it because end of the day it’s a Bhansali’s Film. 



9. Dutt/Sanju-  Sanjay Dutt’s Life story Plus Raj Kumar Hirani as Writer and Director and for the first time trying something out of his comfort zone. Plus Ranbir Kapoor playing the title role. Do we need more reasons to wait for this? Love, Thrill, Action, Drama, Ups, and Downs, This is gonna be one of the most anticipating films of 2018. I just hope that it matches to our expectations. 

 

10. Gustakhiyan- We all heard about the famous Love Story of Sahir Ludhyanvi and Amrita Pritam but we definitely don’t know the whole story. Sanjay Leela Bhansali has announced this film with Priyanka Chopra long ago. Shahrukh Khan was supposed to play Sahir but then again there are obvious reasons that we are not going to see Shahrukh and Priyanka together on screen in near future. Most probably Sushant Singh Rajput is going to play Sahir now as per the rumors. 

11. Mogul- Gulshan Kumar, the cassette king of India. His start was full of struggle but then his success was tremendous but his end was equally tragic. His company T Series is still biggest music company in India. Akshay Kumar is going to play the title role. This is going to be the second film of Akshay and Subhash Kapoor together after Jolly LLB2. We just hope that they don’t cut away the controversial side of his story and even try to throw a bit light on his murder. 

12. Manto- The film stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the title character of the Indo-Pakistani author, writer Saadat Hasan Manto. Rasika Duggal plays the role of Manto’s wife named Safiah. The film is written and Directed by Nandita Das. Manto was a Pakistani writer, playwright, and author considered among the greatest writers of short stories in South Asian history. Though he was more famous for his controversial thoughts and portrayals of society.  Das made a short film titled In Defence of Freedom, also starring Nawazuddin in the main role, and was released on YouTube on 23 March 2017. It was made as a prelude to the feature film. Believe me, the short film is good enough to raise the curiosity. 



13. Thackray- We all know about the Late Bala Saheb Thackray. His control over the politics of Maharashtra was undoubtful. But no one ever tried to show his Biopic on screen before. Though Ram Gopal Varma’s Sarkar was inspired by him. But that was definitely more of a “Godfather’s” Indian remake than Thackray’s Biopic. This time it’s official and the expectations are sky high since we saw the teaser and Nawazuddin playing Bala Saheb with uncanny similarities.

We just hope that this formula works for Indian Cinema.

PS:  We don’t mind to see some complete fictions too.Though we have another list where we have listed a full set of Biographies we would love to see on Indian Screen. Click on this link –

Biographies That Should Have Been Made In Bollywood

Jagga Jasoos was 2017 Best Edited Film and It won!

Jagga Jasoos was 2017 Best Edited Film and It won!

You may have liked or disliked the last year release of Ranbir Kapoor- “Jagga Jasoos” but few things about the movie was remarkable which no one can deny. Yes! The first obvious thing that comes to our mind was the songs and especially “Galti Se Mistake” and it’s choreography. The second thing which as an audience we tend to forget or ignore is editing.

With a record shoot of 4 years, Jagga Jasoos was a long story to tell and to maintain the pace and enthuse throughout the film only through songs and the beats was a humongous task for an editor. It sounds great that at Zee Cine Awards this year they have recognized the work beyond box office success. Ajay Sharma who was working as an editor in the industry since 2006, gets his due recognition from Jagga Jasoos. Earlier he as edited “Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2” last year. One may ask the question that why such a lengthy film won an editing award? What makes this film’s editing an award-winning work?  Here are 5 Reasons –

Record Amount of Footage-  The film has been shot over a period of 4 years with a lot of patience and hard work.  But this results in the surplus amount of footage to edit which is always a challenge for an editor. Not only to put the everything on the timeline but to be honest towards the story and to maintain the pace is a tough task. You can imagine that it took almost 12 hours to watch just the train sequence rushes of a particular scene out of which only a few seconds ends up in the final edit of the film. Yeah! 12 Hours!

 

Unique Musical Film – Jagga’s biggest adventure was not on screen but behind the screen. Director Anurag Basu has picked up a challenge of making an all-in-all musical for Hindi Screen for the first time. What does that mean? It means there are songs on the 80-90% of the screen time. So it becomes a film which is going to be a reference on its own. There are musicals in Hollywood but then you cannot edit Indian Musicals with western sensibilities and when you know that there is no reference to the work you are doing, the work becomes difficult. Master Storytelling of Anurag Basu complimented by the editing of Ajay Sharma makes Jagga possible.





Episodic yet Bigger Story – Jagga’s story has many adventures as different episodes. Each adventure different from the other and yet one has to tell the wholesome story in the larger arc. A son is looking for his foster father. Makers have consciously taken a difficult path and they have also faced the heat from many people including the critics and a part of the audience but I am sure they knew what they were doing. It was this sort of storytelling by the editor and the director which makes Jagga a compelling watch to me at least and definitely a unique watch!

 

 

Action Based Film – Jagga Jasoos was a heavy action based film and it is a no hidden fact that editing of an action film is always difficult. With multiple shots, certain emotional pointsh shots of micro durations the whole editing becomes a tedious job and when you are editing a film like Jagga, one may tend to lose the perspective due to the tiresome job. Kudos to the editor that he maintained the perspective. Means Jagga slows down also at a certain emotional points which are extremely important for maintaining the emotional quotient of the story.

 

Children’s Film – End of the day Jagga Jasoos was a children film BUT with lots of brains. So it expects even the child audience to put their brains on the screen and watch it. Maintaining the entertainment, colors, and actions it should appeal to it’s audience which basically has the tendency to lose the concentration after a point. I remember the editor telling me as to how he used to show the parts of the edit to the daughters of Director Anurag Basu just to take their input as what they are liking and what they didn’t like. It easy to cut and edit what you like, it is always difficult to do it what others may like. Right?





As the character of Tooti Frooti explains the two sides of brain in an intial scene of the film, Jagga is definitely made with the Right Side (Creative) of the brain and with lots of heart. It would have been greater to hear that Jagga also won Best Cinematography and Best Actor but that’s just too much to expect from Indian Award Shows. Right? We wish that people will eventually understand the uniqueness of Jagga Jasoos and film will enter in the list of those timeless classics which were rejected initially but becomes a cult later.

As Prasoon Joshi said – “Yeh Shehar Nahi Mehfil hai”, Dilli is always a fascinating cilli for Mumbai walla Filmmakers and hence many of the films tries to depicts the various sides of this amazing city.

No One Killed Jessica

Kaat kaleja le gayi… Dilli“. Most real and hardcore description of Delhi and people living there. How the powerful people with the political approach can easily get away with a murder in our capital as the privileged high society was not brave enough to say the truth. Raj Kumar Gupta’s thriller is derived from the true incident and shows the cruel and rebellious side of Delhi. nokj_11



 

2. Rang De Basanti – In this epic cinema directed by Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra takes us on the campus of Delhi University and then throw us on the road of activism which is quite prevalent around the monuments like Jantar Mantar and India Gate. The depiction of the Delhi youth is aptly mad and inspiring at the same time. It beautifully depicts the relevance of Bhagat Singh without getting over patriotic or delusional.rdb-8

3. Dilli 6 – Again a Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Film. There is a saying – “You can take a man out of his city, but you cannot take the city of a man.” Mehra’s Delhi 6 is clearly exemplifying this fact. Though it focuses majorly a particular area of Delhi called Delhi 6, it still brings out the madness and the uniqueness of this metro city. Don’t we all love and sing this song in past – “Yeh Dilli Mere Yaar, Bas Ishq Mohabbat Pyaar”. vfx2



4. Delhi Belly- A gangster, Some Diamonds, A box of shit and madness of Delhi Nights. This madcap screenplay of Akshat Verma took a long time to get picked by producers but it definitely a satirical take on Delhi’s culture. Coming closer to the “Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron” ‘s humor level, Delhi Belly may not be the most realistic picture of Delhi but somewhat is definitely relatable.  1336279623

5. Khosla Ka Ghosla- This fabulous National Award winning satire written by Jaideep Sahni is no less than a masterpiece. It marvelously explores the aspirations of a middle-class family living in New Delhi and how this capital is captured by land mafias. From a great ensemble to the depiction of the city, Dibaker Banerjee nailed it in this movie. maxresdefault-1



6. Do Doni Chaar – Do you remember Duggal Sir’s scooter going around on the roads of the city of Delhi? Well if you have watched this one of the best-written films by Habib Faisal you can’t forget Duggal Family, their colony and their aspiration to get a 4 wheeler. Again the middle-class picturization of the city is perfect and entertaining in this super entertaining flick which was a comeback of Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh on the cinema screen after a gap of decades.do_dooni_chaar_660_061613050437

7. Rockstar – Though this love story of a Rockstar travels many parts of the world, there is a huge part shot in Delhi and it beautifully captures the spots where lovebirds try to spend their time in this bustling city. Don’t you start singing “Ting Ling Ling” from “Katiya Karoon”.

mv5bmtq4odu1ndewm15bml5banbnxkftztcwnzy2odqwnw-_v1_



8. Band Baja Baarat – You can’t finish talking about Delhi If are not talking about the Big Fat Wedding Functions of the city. Lights, Music, Dance, Booze and madness writer Habib Faizal picks everything of Delhi Weddings and put it in a narrative of Bittu and Shruti. From Janakpuri to Chhatarpur Gardens this film covers it all. th_2875f1507cb1769f8a7df7f5ed402ef8_1292004693band2

9. Aisha – Where most of the films cover the lower class and middle class of the capital, Aisha is a beautiful take on relationships of the upper-class society of Delhi. Aisha and her bunch of friends is a clear depiction of what city’s rich youngsters are usually up to and yes also the class theme weddings plus shopping!!!!poster7



10 . Oye Lucky Lucky Oye – Another gem by Dibaker Banerjee which captures the twisted side of Delhi through the eyes of a thief. You will not only get on the roads of Delhi but also inside the houses of Delhi along with Lucky.683

You may have watched these films many times but do you know that sometimes due to various reasons the editors and makers of these films have taken out some scenes from the final theatrical release? Well sometimes they are not just required and sometimes just because of the excessive length of the film, editors have to take such harsh decisions. We have handpicked here 8 of such scenes which you would love to watch!



  1. TAMASHA – IMTIAZ ALI – This one scene between Ved and Tara brings out the complexities of their relationship so beautifully that it leaves you speechless for few seconds. Ranbir Kapoor prooves that why even after so many debacles at Box Office, he is the best we have got.

 

2. DEAR ZINDAGI -GAURI SHINDE – Gauri Shinde who won Best Debutant Director from her first film English Vinglish always writes her own films. In her second venture she picked a story of an utterly complicated character which you may find a bit irritating and unlikable sometimes but in this particular scene which was edited out of the final cut, she says what we all want to say at the certain point of time in our lives. Alia Bhatt nailed it!




3. ENGLISH VINGLISH – GAURI SHINDE – We were just talking about Shinde but we can’t finish talking that without talking about English Vinglish. There were so many moments in this beautiful film and many of them just can’t make its final cut. The journey of Shashi (Sridevi)  is as adorable as these edited scenes.

 

 

4. YEH JAWANI HAI DIWANI – AYAN MUKHERJI – Though one may think that Ayan’s better-written work was “Wake Up Sid”, His second venture “Yeh Jawaani Hai Diwani” has it’s own moments. One very beautiful moment was edited out of the final cut. Loved the philosphy yet simplicity of this scene.

 

 

5. LAGAAN – ASHUTOSH GOWARIKAR – This Oscar Nominated movie was no less than a master class of cinema. Though was a sports cinema but it has theatrics and music at the right place which makes it as Bollywood as anything else. Watch this piece of the scene where the ensemble is singing and practicing for the cricket match.



 

6. SHOLAY – RAMESH SIPPY – So here comes the most awaited one. We all know everything about this cult classic. There is nothing which is unknown to the Indian Cinema lovers about Sholay. We all knew about the alternative ending of Sholay but have you watched it? Here it is!

 

7. BAND BAAJA BARAAT – MANISH SHARMA – If we look back to this film, it was a very important film as it gave us the two biggest stars of the present time – Ranveer Singh and Anushka Sharma. The story of Shruti and Bittu has many relatable yet adorable moments but some of them were taken out from the final cut. Here are they.

 

8. KAL HO NAA HO – NIKHIL ADVANI – Many would disagree with me, but I think this was the best-written film by Karan Johar. The ensemble and the performances everything was so lovable. We can’t get enough of Kal Ho Naa Ho. So let’s have some more. PS: You will see Zohara Sehgal and Kamini Kaushal also.



 

9. SWADES- ASHUTOSH GOWARIKAR – There are only two types of people in this world. One who likes “Swades” and one who does not understand Swades. There was a very beautiful song composed by AR Rahmaan – Aahista Aahista which was not in the final cut of the film but I highly recommend you to listen to this before you go to bed. Nostalgia Guaranteed!

 

Tells us if we have missed anything.

The Cinthol Man

The Cinthol Man

Some men have got charisma so strong that they can make millions of other men jealous. Indian ladies, for decades have been mesmerized by magnetic personality of this hunk and have nagged their lovers and husbands for not using a certain soap endorsed by this magnetic personality…Trust me that was charm of Vinod Khanna, who was not only one of the best looking actors of Hindi Cinema but also was one of the finest actors that we have known.

Physically he might have left us today but his works have already made him an immortal. We pay homage to this great actor today and we will talk about his 3 roles that will make us remember him till end of times…

Amar (Amar Akbar Anthony)

Inspector Amar from Amar Akbar Anthony

Inspector Amar from Amar Akbar Anthony

Amar is one of the characters that comes to your mind first when you think of Vinod Khanna. A cop with heart of Gold, who fights the goons, and has soft corner for a con woman forced to live a life of crime. He makes an effort not only to save her but also brings her out from the life of misery.

My Aunt had once said that…When he sang…’Tere sang jeevan ki dor bandhi hai’ in the mellow voice of Mukesh in the song ‘Humko tumse ho gaya hai pyar’, he literally made girls of that era fall in love and day dream about him.

Shyam (Mere Apne)

Gulzar's Shyam

Gulzar’s Shyam

Gulzar Saheb is known for recognizing talent, he has cast best of actors in the roles with which they proved their mettle. He did a small cameo ffor him in Parichay but Shyam is one of those characters of Gulzar that was made immortal by amazing performance of Vinod Khanna. In my humble opinion, this was his life’s best act. His persona matched to the well written character which fitted him like hand in a glove. Shyam has anguish, anger and pain, emotions that you take home after you have finished watching this film. Hats off to Vinod ji for this.

Amar  (Qurbani)

Powerpacked Performer

Powerpacked Performer

He played Cop Amar in ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’ and an exact opposite Amar in this one, in one of the most powerpacked action laden film yet romantic acts of his time, Qurbani will be recalled as one of his Bilingual films, made both in Hindi and English, in this movie he shared space with Zeenat and Feroz but again he made girls drool over him inspite of other two sharing his space on screen. His dialogues from Qurbani have been acted and copied by almost every stand up mime, and is indeed his most memorable action roles.

Our Heartfelt condolence to his family, he was indeed a great actor and an amazing father.

Our Heartfelt condolence to his family, he was indeed a great actor and an amazing father. We will miss you.

A few years back, short films were classified as a passing fad. Either they were made by film making students as their assignments, which were mostly shabby and clumsy, or they were made keeping in mind the festival circuits and were made specially to cater to certain film festivals to garner applause to the film makers who did not have enough money to make an entire film. If given a chance to make a feature film, who would have wanted to make a short film. To keep it concise we can say that the market for short films was ‘Short’ of viewers. With telecom companies launching cheaper data plans and popularity of broadband, these films in last few years have found a market. Short films found viewers and then found people who were keen to make some good short films, that weren’t made for awards or grades in college, but to tell a story for the new chunk of web audience or shall we call them the ‘You tube’ audience in India. Some of these films were bold, some were beautiful and some were moving. Today we are going to talk about a channel on Youtube that has finished two years and ‘Fool’s day’, they released their 18th film, ‘Khujli’ starring Jaggu dada and Neena Gupta. This channel is called Terribly Tiny Talkies…and we today pick our Seven most favorite films out of the ones that premiered on this channel, which has some of the best ‘Slice of Life’ stories to tell.

ARRE BABA – WHEN A FATHER IS ALSO THE ‘MOTHER’
(Surya Balakrishnan’s ‘Arre Baba’ stars Girish Kulkarni and Gauri Deshpande)






Released on Mother’s day, This a Marathi short film about 5 and half minute in length. How much can you tell in that small a duration. Can you talk about life of two people in 5 minutes.

Can father be maternal, does he have empathy to understand the mood swings of his ailing daughter who is entering her teens. This is the story of a father who chooses to be both a father and a mother to his daughter. Is he able to do so…

This film has subtitles so, even if you do not know Marathi, you will not have an issue understanding it.Watch the movie, Show it your Mom and dad, and thank them for being there for you while you were growing up.

MAMTA TONIC – HEART RIPPING STORY OF A MOTHER

This is one story that you have to watch for its sheer brilliance of story telling. This is story of a sales woman who sells a tonic, door to door to support herself. This is one of those films that will leave you in tears. Watch this one as if I say anything else, I would be giving out spoilers which I don,t want to. Be ready to be surprised.
