2017 is over with too much of disappointment from the film industry. Still few out of the box films made a mark on box office and in our hearts too. Among these movies we found many amazing characters who made us laugh, cry and inspired too. We relate to them as they belong to us. Let’s just go through few special characters from Bollywood we saw on screen this year.

1. Jagga & Tooti Footi – (Ranbir Kapoor & Saswata Chatterjee – Jagga Jasoos)  – He may have resemblance with Tintin but the no one can deny that this Indian Version of Tintin played by Ranbir Kapoor is not any less adorable and lovable than the original. After creating Barfi, Ranbir and Anurag Basu had this huge expectation of creating something far more lovable. With Jagga they might have failed at the box office but they are pretty successful in creating a character who is in search of his foster father played by Saswata Chatterjee. With speech disorder and singing all along while solving the teeth clenching mysterious, Jagga and Tooti Footi were one of the most adorable couples on the screen this year. Best Moment was when Tooti Footi teaches Jagga about the Right and the left side of the brain. 

 

2. Sulu / Sulochna : (Vidya Balan – Tumharai Sulu) – “Main kar sakti hai” –  When Vidya Balan who was playing, “A Happy Enthusiastic housewife Sulu” says this on screen, we all feel like doing things which we always wanted to do from so long but never got that amount of bravery and courage to pursue that. Definitely, this one character that writer and director Suresh Triveni built for Vidya Balan and the honesty that Vidya delivers on the screen uplifts the half-baked screenplay wonderfully. Whether the movie stays with you for long or not, this saree clad late-night Radio Jockey Sulu is definitely going to stay with us for a longer time. Best Moment – When Sulu don’t give a damn about the race but wants the lemon not to fall from the spoon in the lemon race. She doesn’t mind coming second but she wants to do it right!

 

3. Bua Ji ( Ratna Pathak Shah – Lipstick Under My Burkha ) – Though it was the year of strong female characters and this out of the box film itself have 3 other distinct female characters, Bua ji played by Ratna Pathak Shah just stands out of the league. She is not a rebel neither she is revolutionary, what makes you feel what she feels is the simplicity of her desires. Writer-Director Alankrita Shrivastava can’t deny that might be Bua ji was the best part of the whole film. What makes this character one of the most unforgettable characters? Well now you will start looking at Bua Ji’s around you and you will be more sensitive towards their loneliness.

 

4. Newton & Aatma Singh – (Raj Kumar Rao & Pankaj Tripathi – Newton) – Nutan Kumar picks the gun of Aatma Singh and waits for last few seconds of the voting hour to finish. In those few seconds, You are also standing there and deciding in your brains, where are these two characters flawed and where are they not? Well to me, Newton was not just the story of Newton but about these two characters which were played so honestly that it reflects on the screen. No doubt when you leave the theater, the song – “Chal Tu Apna Ka Kar” keeps going in the loop in your head but that’s because of the writing by Amit V Marsurkar and Mayank Tewari which justifies the two side of the coin just like that only. 

 

5. Preetam Vidrohi (Raj Kumar Rao – Bareily Ki  Barfi ) – This Year can easily be tagged as “The Year of Raj Kumar Rao”. But the success of this brilliant actor relies on the roles written for him or the roles he chose. This was definitely a year for writers, if not so- Why would producers but writers name (Nitesh Tiwari and Shreyas Jain) at the very start of the trailer. Believe me, this is a rare thing and happy to know that the makers realized the power of writing here.  Though this cannot take away the marvelous almost split personality performance by Rajkumar Rao who single-handedly stole the whole show in the second half of the movie. Pritam Vidrohiis amazing but still somewhere not justified between Bitti and Chirag’s love story. Can we have a spin-off of Preetam?

 

6. Shyam Prakash (Deepak Dobriyal – Hindi Medium) – Saket Chaudhary’s Hindi Medium was definitely one of the most surprisingly entertaining and successful films of the year. Where you love Irfan Khan and Saba’s chemistry one thing that just can’t leave you for a long time was Shyam Prakash’s character. A simple struggling common man with dreams and aspirations who just jumps in front of an expensive car to get some money for his friend – This guy steals your heart and then breaks it too. What Mr. Irrfan Khan has achieved after so much of struggle in the industry, Deepak Dobriyal deserves no less than that.

 

7. Anarkali ( Swara Bhaskar – Anarkali Of Aarah )  –  A year ago only we saw a brilliant film about consent – PINK and this year it was Anarkali of Aarah but this one stands out more for the character and the performance of Swara Bhaskar as Anarkali. She just disappeared in those flashy attires and transformed into Anarkali who is okay to sing double songs and even sleep around with other men but only when she likes it. Her voice is crystal clear when it comes to her consent. Swara as Anarkali is definitely one of the most powerful performances of the year.

 

8. Najma (Meher Vij – Secret Superstar) – We have so many outrageously brave women on the screen so far but that’s not a reality. There is still a big number of females who find it difficult to find their voice in the environment they are living. Still, they never let their ambitions and dreams to go in the vain. Najma of Secret Superstar represents this majority of the females in our society beautifully.  Finding the right balance between many a thing they are juggling with Meher Vij portrayal of this mother who is torn between the husband and the daughter is definitely one of the most relatable characters for the majority of the audience and that’s what I think transformed into the unexpected success of this movie.

 

9. Praful Patel ( Kangana Ranaut – Simran) – Though there was a huge fight for the credits of the screenplay of this film between Apurva Asrani and Kangana Ranaut before the film, I am more interested in knowing who has actually shaped the character of Praful Patel. How much it was written by Apurva and how much was improvised by Kangana? Because that’s the best part of the movie. Praful is unapologetic about herself. Her definition of success is not defined by society but by the achievement of the things she wants to achieve. Yet she is fun even in her darkest times. Creating such character is not easy because as an audience one may tend to dislike her or stay apathetic towards her but no! You like Praful and you want her to be successful. Though you also want her to stop doing silly things at the same time, you never stop rooting for her. That’s where Simran was a successful film for me.

10. Justice Surendra Lal Tripathi ( Jolly LLB 2) –  We have seen Justice Tripathi in Jolly LLB  earlier and we loved him. Writer-Director Subhash Kapoor knows this fact and hence in this installment even though it has superstar Akshay Kumar playing Jolly, he gave an ample space to Justice Tripathi’s character flourish. From Showing the typical human side of Tripathi to be the stubborn voice of reason Justice Tripathi, in my opinion, going to be one of the most echoed characters of the decade and the reason doesn’t rely completely upon the writing. It’s Sourabh Shukla’s class act which takes this character to another height. Best Moment – When Justice Tripathi sits on an Anshan in his own courtroom. 

 

11. Shutu (Vikrant Massey/ A Death at the Gunj) – Last but definitely not the least! Shutu is that one sensitive guy who is always there around us but always effortlessly and unconsciously able to disappear in the rude and cruel insensitive world. Vikrant Massey brings out the nuances and insecurities of Shutu so palpable that without even saying many dialogues you feel what he is feeling. No doubt the writer Konkana Sen Sharma picked up this unusual tale of Shutu to debut as Director and then chose Vikrant as the lead among the sea of fabulous actors as an ensemble.

 

Let us know which one stayed with you. Have we missed any other character?

 

7 “Out of The Box” Characters Played By Vidya Balan

7 “Out of The Box” Characters Played By Vidya Balan

Gaurav Bharat

Gaurav Bharat

Writer, with more thoughts and fewer words, still exploring the amazing thing called "LIFE" in a nonjudgemental way.
Gaurav Bharat

We all know her as one of the most versatile and bold female actor who made her mark among critics and boxoffice especially in patriarchal Industry. She carries the capability to make a hit on her own shoulder without any “Khan” or “Kapoor”. She just need a great story and amazing character to play on screen and she will amaze you like never before. VIDYA BALAN. Lets talk about some of her “Out of the Box” Characters played by her.

Vidya- Kahaani

Vidya Bagchi or whatever her real name was, she was the real meaning of durga in the movie. She came like an innocent pregnant woman who was searching for her husband and later she came out as the real box of secrets. Only vidya knows how to handle a character with so many layers.

Vidya- Paa

She decides not to be a victim when she got pregnant. She decides to give birth to her baby without getting married. She decides to complete her studies while she was pregnant. She decides to take care of her child independently. She is the face of modern Indian women, who doesn’t need any man to complete her.

Reshma- The Dirty Picture

In this whole pretentious world, if you are asked to play a character who says whatever going through her mind then it become something so bold that cannot be carry on screen without killing your all inhibitions. Vidya while playing Silk was so fierce that it was very difficult for so-called broad minded males to accept this character. Standing Ovation for Vidya to Play something that no actress ever dared to play on screen.

Sabrina- No One Killed Jessica

Playing real-life character on screen is always challenging as it will always be compared with real one. But Vidya knows how to get into the skin of the character. If you watch this movie again then pay yours to vidya’s body language, her walking gait, her silent expressions and especially her dialogue delivery. That’s the sign of a classic actor to create a character on screen.

Sulochna – Tumhari Sulu

“Main Kar Sakti Hai” Definitely only Vidya can do that. Playing a fat, married, uneducated, housewife and still, we all are hooked into her story. Tumhari sulu was all about the sulu which brought to life by Vidya. The most entertaining character played by her on screen.

Meenakshi- Guru

Ya that was not a lead role but playing a character who is handicapped but still have her own vision, ambitions, desire and especially perspective is a tricky thing. On the very initial time of her career, she chooses an unattractive supporting character to play but didn’t we loved her in this movie?

 

Krishna- Ishqiya

This was the most layered character she played on screen. Krishna seemed to be sympathetic but actually having secondary motives. A window who was horny at times. Sarcastic and fearless. She knows how to play with peoples emotions. Vidya played Krishna as like no one can do it better than her. Unapologetically.

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

Biographies That Should Have Been Made In Bollywood

We all know that our Film Industry is struggling with the lack of original ideas and concepts. Even India’s official entry for the Academy Awards – Oscars for this year – Newton is facing charges of plagiarism as it has a lot of similarities with Iranian Film – The secret Ballot. In the industry where writers are at the lowest of the food chain of filmmaking, it is very difficult to find original stories but India is a country of more than a billion and if we just try to pick real stories like – “Neerja” and “Dangal” there will be enough original content to conquer the invasion of International Entertainment.

So let’s find out what we can do –

1. APJ ABDUL KALAM- The story of a Newspaper boy from Rameshwaram to the President of India is definitely is a story that needs to be told. A man, his determination, his passion and his simplicity is something that inspired and transcends to every Indian and even to the people outside India. This is one story we would love to see coming alive on the screen.  former-president-apj-abdul-kalam-5-pti21



2. SATYENDRA NATH BOSE – was an Indian physicist from Bengal specializing in theoretical physics. He is best known for his work on quantum mechanics in the early 1920s, providing the foundation for Bose-Einstein statistics and the theory of the Bose-Einstein condensate. A Fellow of the Royal Society, he was awarded India’s second highest civilian award, the Padma Vibhushan in 1954 by the Government of India.The class of particles that obey Bose-Einstein statistics, bosons, was named after Bose by Paul Dirac. Can we expect “A beautiful mind” sort of science drama here?physics-t-shirt_feature-image-635x800

3. MAJOR DHYANCHAND – Though Shetty Sisters (Aarti & Pooja ) have acquired the rights of making the movie on this sports legend of India Major Dhyan Chand long time ago, the development of the film seems dicey and looks like it’s still a dream to see some one playing this great sports person on screen. We all know that National Sports Day is celebrated on the birthday of this forgotten hero of our country who face to face clash with Adolf Hitler was one of the most dramatic incidents of his story. We all are waiting for this story to be told soon. 600999-dhyanchand700



4. RAVI SHANKAR- World Class Musician. The face of Indian Classical Music. 2 Marriages, Failed Relationships. Father of famous world-class musicians and their rivalry. From Grammy to Bharat Ratna, Pandit Ravi Shankar’s life story is definitely a story of a true artist. But can we get the rights from his daughters?The late sitarist, composer and musical ambassador Ravi Shankar, who died Tuesday at age 92.

5. ISMAT CHUGTAI- Ismat Chugtai popularly known as Ismat Aapa was a fierce Urdu writer who was not afraid to talk about female sexuality at the repressed times. Surrounded by the controversies of her writings, Ismat Aapa was never apologetic about her work. We all know the famous case of “Lihaaf” and the proceedings of it. This liberal Muslim woman was a voice that definitely needs to tell again on the screen. ismat-large

6. GURU DUTT- We all say that screen is inspired by the real life, but in case of Guru Dutt, his life imitates his own film “Kagaz Ke Phool” and “Pyaasa”. The legendary filmmaker had a successful career but failed love life and he finally ends up his own life. What leads to that? Why he also said -“Yeh Duniya Agar Mil bhi Jaye toh kya hai?” Aren’t we all still curious about him?gurudutt



  1. 7. SANJIV KUMAR – Very fewer people know this fact that this brilliant actor was in love with Hema Malini and even proposed her but after a period of time Hema has chosen Dharmendra over him and he lived rest of his life unmarried. Though he played a lot of old aged characters on screen he himself died young. This one-sided love story of a great actor is definitely something to look for. sanjeev-kapoor



8. CHAVI RAJAWAT – You may not be heard of her but her story is no less. After doing MBA Chavi left her job and came back to her roots, her village Soda in Rajasthan and fought the election to become the youngest sarpanch ever without getting affiliated to any political party.  The development work that she has done on the grass root level is really inspirational. Can we see this as a “Swades 2” but this time with a female lead? 

maxresdefault

9. RANI KARNAVATI – Again a story very few people know. This brave queen of Gharwal region fiercely protects her kingdom from the invasion of Mughals. It was pretty famous that she used to cut the nose of anyone who used to intrude. Her folklore is pretty famous in Uttrakhand. Sanjay Leela Bhansali / Kangana Ranaut – Are you guys thinking for a collaboration? This might be the best. nak-kati-rani

10. KISHORE KUMAR – A singer, A comedian, an accidental Actor, a flamboyant personality, romantic and extremely moody, quirky and talented. Kishore Kumar was a true artist but an amazing human being. Her relationships and friendships were always talks of the tinsel town. Last we heard that Anurag Basu wants to make this biopic with Ranbir Kapoor. We just hope that Jagga won’t disturbs this collaboration. kishore-kumar-eccentric

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. This short and sweet story starts with a father picking up his daughter from school. The man has lost his wife and thus daughter has lost her mother. 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

Srinivas Sunderrajan’s ‘Mamta Tonic’ stars Suhita Thatte, Shabnam Vadhera, Kiran Thapar and Atika Chohan.






A mother takes up a life of Hardships from the time she conceives us.  She lives rest of her life to see us thrive, protect us. She does whatever it takes to nurture us and give us a life. 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.

CUDDLY  : HEAVEN IS IN LAP OF THE MOTHER

Karan Shetty’s ‘Cuddly’ stars Neena Kulkarni and Shruti Vyas.

However advance the technology gets, however rich you get, there is no place where you can find peace other than in the lap of your mother. You agree, dont you?

DRY DAY – MAKE AN EFFORT, BRIDGE THE GAP

Harsh Dedhia’s ‘Dry Day’ strives to blur the thin line that separates two men, across generations.

Story of a father who is now at a distance from his son growing up and away from him in the same house. While the father seeks reasons to come close to his son, the son notices struggle of his estranged father and finds a reason to fill the trench of generation gap and make an effort to become friends with him. Simple sweet story that we all will relate to. Must watch.

THE LAST DAY – FRIENDS ARE SOULMATES

Watch The Last Day, by Adhiraj Bose, Starring Namit Das and Tahir Bhasin






How does it feel to say good bye to some one who has lived with you more than your longest relationship. This is story of two friends who have become soulmates. This film has layers of relationships that run under the last conversation of two friends about to part. Their relationship is more pure and serene than love itself, after all this is one relationship that God allows us to choose, and if we make the right choice we become soulmates with our friends. You can call it whatever you want, name it whatever you feel like.

BUNNY : THIS ONE IS A KILLER

Watch Bunny, by Vasan Bala.
