Raabta is the upcoming movie which features Sushant Singh Rajput , Kriti Sanon and Jim Sarbh (Who has won majority of last year debutante awards for ‘Neerja’). The trailer of this movie dropped in a couple of days back and did leave me speechless. I was quite confused…and the reason was ‘EVERYTHING WAS CONNECTED’…

Trailer starts with like a regular cheesy boy meets modern girl masala flick and I was about to skip it then all of a sudden I started getting visuals from ‘Game of thrones’ with glimpses of ‘Mirzya’.Suddenly I felt that I had reached some kind of a fan made trailer who had very well mixed up various movies.

Mirzya Again….

First thing that came to my mind were the Mirzya hairstyles (Which are very smart BTW) and the costumes are so much like Mirzya.The trailer and its action choreography so much resembled Mirzya’s trailer that I was quite stunned for a moment, Not to blame but Mirzya was a stunning looking film apart from being a boring one…

Mirzya to Magadheera

Mirzya to Magadheera

Magadheera…

Well for those who have not watched Magadheera, it is an extravagant Tamil movie revolving showcasing a reincarnation story  which also has a lovestory as a central plot. Raabta seems to a love story cum reincarnation story just like Magadheera. Lovestory in the center stage of-course is because  lovestory is what Indian audience cannot live without, it has to be there… ‘Janam Janam ka Pyaar’ after all…!

Here is the trailer of Magadheera ( 😀 Please do not laugh, this was a superhit movie in South India, The Hindi dub is atrocious )

Whats good about the trailer

Raabta

This is one thing I like about this trailer, the unforgettable love balled ‘Raabta’ from the forgettable action flick ‘Agent Vinod’ has lent this movie its theme song and also the movie’s name. ‘Raabta’ is an urdu word which means ‘Connection’, the word which probably is trying to tell that this is a story that was connected through births.

Jim Sarbh

Jim Sarbh looks astonishing in the trailer and looks so convincing in the trailer that probably he is the only element in the trailer that might convince me to go and watch the movie Raabta. He is intense and takes over Sushant in terms of act that he puts forward. He is indeed a talent to watch out for.

On the launch of this trailer at Yashraj Studios, today we interacted with Bindu  (Parineeti, Who was looking really hot in yellow) and Abhimanyu (Ayushman, who was sporting a morepankhi dhoti and shimmering gaudy shoes and a Bengali Kurta and was looking really dashing) and director of the movie, Akshay Roy (Probably one of the most soft spoken and down to earth directors that I have met in recent past), More on this later…now we will talk about the innovative promotion of the movie, Meri Pyaari Bindu.

Meri Pyaari Bindu ! What is it all about…

Ayushman says that this movie is story of a writer, Abhimanyu Roy and his nostalgia about his soulmate and only love of his life, Bindu. (Nostalgia just like that of Phantom cigarettes and fatafat candy, Kismi toffee bar and keema samosas)

Akshay adds that this is not a love-story essentially. Its about the emotions between soulmates.

Theatrical trailer of ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’, is broken up into 5 parts, first of which released today. Its one of its kind promotion for a movie. Why?

Its journey of Abhimanyu and Bindu with a span of 35 years as shown in the film, 1983 when he first saw Bindu from ‘Khidki’ of of his ‘Baadi’, in Kolkata, to present times, when Bindu is no where around and he is writing his story…in chapters…!

CHAPTER 1 :SAMOSA AND CHUTNEY

First part of the trailer is called ‘Samosa and Chutney’…and in the background is the haunting tune from the movie Howrah Bridge, Aiye Meherbaan…

This first part is sweet and cheesy, which has a trademark Yashraj feelgood factor, with a special Maneesh Sharma, tadka added to it… It will remind you of ‘Dum laga ke haisha’. (Probably because the element of old bollywood musical charm attached to both of them)

So far so good…

We have watched all the five chapters of the trailer, We wont give out any spoilers of part 2 which will release tomorrow…we will come back tomorrow with more on Meri Pyaari Bindu and will talk about another Nostalgic Memory about Bindu from Abhimanyu’s memory lane.

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)

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.

Begum Jaan is official remake of ‘Rajkahini’, a Bangla film also by the director Srijit Mukherji. 

I have watched the original Bangla movie, in which the role of Begum Jaan was essayed by Rituporno Sengupta to excellence. Its hard to dissect ‘Begum Jaan’ trailer without being biased so I will divide this article into two parts. In first part I will talk about the Begum Jaan Trailer only (forgetting the fact in back of my mind that I have seen this film before). In the second part I shall compare both trailers and talk about both the films.

Begum Jaan – A Trailer Review

I know Vishesh films for making fast paced, edgy modern day dramas with contemporary music and urban themes. Begum Jaan, the latest offering from the house of Vishesh Films is quite different from the last few Vishesh Films outings that I have witnessed. The trailer has made quite a ripple in the industry and has caught the eyes of many, the reason primarily being Vidya Balan in a period drama which carries a very unusual theme and plot.

Said to be inspired from the real events, this movie trailer does carry a lot of elements that make it amazing. Lets list a few-

Plot : The trailer gives you a vague idea of the plot, which is set in 1947 while India was getting partitioned, the line drawn with ink on maps is to be drawn with human blood between the lands of India and Pakistan. On the border is the brothel of ‘Begum Jaan’, who refused to leave her home and fought for herself and her girls. Plot is convincing and well essayed through the trailer.

Vidya Balan in and as Begum Jaan

Vidya Balan in and as Begum Jaan

Vidya Balan : First and foremost reason to like this trailer other than its coherent plot is Vidya Balan, who will return to screen after, ‘Kahaani 2’. Indeed its the role that she fits into, just as hand in glove. Vidya delivers her looks and her acting and makes a very believable image of ‘Madamme’ of a brothel.

A shot from the movie

Ensemble Starcast :This trailer also features ‘Pallavi Sharda’ (The actress from forgettable flick, Besharam) and Gauhar Khan, who looks very promising in the trailer, inspite that she hardly gets a few shots here and there. Other starcasts like Rajat Kapoor, Ashish Vidyarthi also look their parts.

Memories of Mandi : Trailer tells a story, and in a very impactfull manner. It does make me recall of ‘Mandi’ which also carried a similar plot line, but in case of ‘Begum Jaan’, we can definitely say that this film will offer us much more in terms of drama than Mandi. ‘Dungrus’ of Mandi and Raja here Naseer Ud Din Shah, seems to make his lasting impression in just one dialogue that he gets in the trailer. Vidya also resembles what Shabana Azmi looked like in Mandi (Hookah smoking, plump woman who owns a brothel and her girls)

Fiery Dialogues : There is a thin line between being being Raunchy and becoming cheap, Begum Jaan escapes from being cheap though dialogues are a bit loud, fiery though. One of my friends whom I was discussing the trailer with called the trailer ‘Raunchy’. Indeed it is, why not ? This is story of women selling their bodies. This is story of these bold women, its bound to be raunchy. (My favorite one was, ‘Begum Jaan ke kothe ke baahar, har aadmi ek murga hota hai, teen taangon wala murga’) wink 😉

Voice Over by Amitabh Bacchan : Another reason why I liked the trailer was the voiceover by Amitabh Bachhan. His voice always adds weight, may it be a Lagaan trailer or this one.

Well Shot and Good Artwork : This trailer is well shot, and gives an insight into great art direction of the movie.

Many will not patronize the trailer, because of the cuss-words used in the trailer. I can surely say one thing, you like it or hate it, this is one trailer that you can not ignore. All in all, for those who have not watched Rajkahini, its possible that they will like the trailer of Begum Jaan, better than any other Hindi Film trailer seen in past few months. 

RAJKAHINI TRAILER V/S BEGUM JAAN TRAILER

Rajkahini - The movie that inspired Begum Jaan

Rajkahini – The movie that inspired Begum Jaan

Srijit Mukherji has made this movie in Bangla before, it was well appreciated due to its amazing performances by a starcast that lived their roles with utmost sincerity. Many shots look similar in both trailers, Since Begum Jaan is an official remake of Rajkahini, I do not count that as copying from a movie. They were meant to look similar, as both director and story are the same.

I did like the trailer of ‘Begum Jaan‘ but Do I like Begum Jaan trailer as much as ‘Rajkahini’ ?

The answer is ‘No’. Before I give my reasons for saying that, This is my personal opinion, you can have one of your own, lets have a quick watch of the Rajkahini trailer, starring Rituporno Sengupta as Begum Jaan.

Why I like ‘Rajkahini’ trailer better?

Look and Feel and the depiction of pain of Partition: I like Rajkahini trailer because of its severity. It seems more realistic and gives you a better feel of the era in which the story is set. The pain of partition and hardships of common folks at the time of the partition sets the mood of the trailer which leads to Begum Jaan’s revolt in the trailer.

Setting the tone of the story is very important, that Rajkahini trailer does successfully

The acts : Performances are a notch better as compared to the Begum Jaan trailer, that’s not to say that Begum Jaan is bad in terms of performances. Its not just as good as RajKahini.

Bharato Bhagya Bidhata : Rabindra Nath Tagore’s , lyrics along with Rabindra Sangeet make an appearance in the trailer, not as a filler piece of background score but more like a character of the story, which is missing in the Begum Jaan’s trailer.

Framing and Shot-taking is exceptional

Framing and Shot-taking is exceptional

Art Direction and Cinematography : Its exceptional, inspite that budgets of Rajkahini were not as elaborate as Begum Jaan. Some shots are exceptionally framed.

That one shot that I wanted to see in the Begum Jaan trailer : One shot I definitely miss from Rajkahini trailer which is not in Begum Jaan trailer, the shot of a young boy at Sunset (which signifies partition) peeing on the barbed wire fence that divides India and Pakistan.

It was a perfect end to the Rajkahini trailer, both ironic and iconic

Two years have passed by and half a million jokes have been made on the question, ‘कटप्पा ने बाहुबली को क्यों मारा?’. (WTF ! Why did Katappa kill Bahubali?)

Keeping Jokes apart, the joke that was a running gag in the industry has become the biggest marketing tactic of Indian Cinema, that has kept the interest of people in the second and conclusive chapter of the Bahubali enterprise. Today the trailer of the conclusion dropped in and we today got a sneak peak into what the movie will look like, which is all set to release on 28th April 2017. The buzz is huge. Intentionally or not, Bollywood is not releasing any ‘Big’ movies for atleast 3 weeks. The biggest release planned so far is ‘Half girlfriend’, starring Arjun and Shraddha on 19th May. There are fair chances that, if Bahubali-2 has a compelling narrative it might be the biggest pot-boilers or even the biggest money makers of 2017 even in Bollywood.

Now lets talk about the trailer.
Mahishmati :
Mahishmati is still the same, it looks more polished though in the trailer, keeping in mind that now it will be telling the story in flashback about the ‘Life and Death of Amarendra Bahubali’. I am really happy with the CG work done to create the kingdom, it looks very neatly done and has the finesse, almost to a level of good Hollywood Movie. Visuals are amazing specially the giant elephant shaped waterfalls, with a ship passing by is what remains in the memory for sure.
Anushka and Prabhas in a still from the movie

Action-Vaction:
Well this time it doesn’t seem that there would be a battle with demonish enemies in Bahubali, this time it looks more like Mahabharat, atleast that is what trailer gives out. ‘Antaryudhh’ (An internal war), says queen Sivagaami, should be the crux of the conflict in this part. If we talk about the action choreography, it seems amazing. Power Packed action sequences are breathtaking. The final war sequences between the Bhallaldev and Shivudu (Shiva : Son of Amarendra Bahubali), are the highlight of the trailer. Even Anushka who plays Devsena has action sequences, to watch out for, also that she is looking ravishing throughout the trailer.
Musical Score: Its apt !
Emotional Atyachar :
Trailer offers you a big dose of emotional connect as well, specially the opening monologue of Amarendra Bahubali. The sequence where he says, “Tumhare hote hue, mujhe maarne waala paida nahi hua mama”, and the agony laden look of Katappa, makes us forget all the jokes made in the past two years. It gives not a clue, so as to why did Katappa kill Bahubali, and teases the audience to go and watch the film. Smart !
Why Katappa? Why?

Why Katappa? Why?

In totality trailer does, what it was intended to do. It garners interest of people who have been wanting to know  ‘कटप्पा ने बाहुबली को क्यों मारा?’. (WTF ! Why did Katappa kill Bahubali?).

‘Nepotism’, has been a topic of discussion in Bollywood ever since its inception. Actually it has not been anything new keeping in mind that even in other professions of profits, the professionals have had a desire that the business should run within the family or the known ones. That is the reason how sons of Doctors have been forced to become Doctors and so on. But these are arena’s where academics or family business come into play. What about industry where Talent should ideally be the base for getting a job or a part, thus this discussion is important…

The Families of Bollywood-

Ever since its inception families have settled themselves in the business of movie making, may it be Prithviraj Kapoor’s clan that has carried on the beacon of cinematic excellence and have continued to give value to the industry.Family is a big thing in the world of entertainment. Just like business, political or sports dynasties film families, too, are a much celebrated and hallowed bunch. The Kapoors, the Chopras, the Bachchans, the Sippys, the Khans to name a few, the progeny often believes itself to be a cut above the rest. Much like Indian political families, show business families have also started operating as personal fiefdoms where the baton is unquestionably passed on to gen-next irrespective of whether they want it or are even talented enough.

The Kapoor Family Tree : Kapoors have ruled the Bollywood Talents for almost 75 years and have given us great artists

The Kapoor Family Tree : Kapoors have ruled the Bollywood Talents for almost 75 years and have given us great artists

But not all have fared this well, there have been some talents from the Industrial clans that haven’t done as good as we had expected.

Kumar Gaurav - One film Wonder

Kumar Gaurav – One film Wonder

Kumar Gaurav for instance, was the perfect chocolate hero of his times, in the 80’s that were brimming with great love-stories, he should have made a mark. After making a smashing debut with ‘Love Story’, Son of Jubilee Kumar, Rajendra Kumar, Gaurav was termed as one film wonder. He has not been the only one, many have met with same consequences. Munish Kohli, Harman Baweja, Jackie Bhagnani, Uday Chopra, to name a few are some of those names that have tried and failed in multiple efforts of revival.

Though not all have been failures, there are others who have also proved that inspite that they are from the families in Business, but they deserve to be where they are. Ranbir Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor can be termed as those talents, who have grown through their struggles and their times of thick and thins. After series of unsuccessful films these actors gave some earth shattering performances and proved their worth. Rekha, Sanjay Dutt, Amir Khan, Salman Khan, Kajol, Kareena Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar and many more actors have shone like gems in the industry after proving their mettle.

Ranbir Kapoor in 'Rockstar' and Shahid Kapoor in 'Haider'

Ranbir Kapoor in ‘Rockstar’ and Shahid Kapoor in ‘Haider’

Then there have been those who came with no links with Bollywood whatsoever and made their names into the Bollywood with their consistent efforts to do well. The most famous of which have been Sharmila Tagore, Jaya Bacchan, Amithabh Bacchan, Naseer Uddin Shah, Shahrukh Khan, Juhi Chawla, Madhuri Dixit, John Abraham, Kangana Ranaut and Anoushka Sharma.

THE DEBATE HEATS UP

Kangana and KJo heated up the Nepotism Debate

Kangana and KJo heated up the Nepotism Debate

Recently Kangana on her appearance on Koffee with Karan heated up this debate crying out loud about the hardships that ‘Non Bollywood’ folks face if they have to make their mark in the industry. I am referring to Bollywood as an Industry rather than an art-form keeping in mind that status it has been given by the government itself. Well, we do have to keep in mind that quite a bit that Kangana pointed out was true in many respects. Not only actors but writers, directors and other technicians have to work their way towards success before they become an established name or they get picked up by one of these families in business for their ‘Big breaks’. Its not an easy journey. But is Nepotism the main reason behind this or some other factors also are responsible for this.

Aamir Khan, one of the Industry person, who has also given ‘Chance’ to many ‘Non Bollywood folks’ in addition to some ‘Insiders’ says very apologetically, “It’s normal human nature to try and help people you love and care for. It doesn’t have to be someone from your family. So it’s a very natural emotion. In my work, I strive to not allow that feeling to interfere. I feel that it’s my responsibility as a creative person towards the audience and give them the most importance. I try to not bring in any emotions of that sort in my work.”

Huma Quraishi who is also not from a ‘Bollywood Khaandaan’ says, “Not that star kids are not talented, but the opportunities they get are far easier, projects far bigger and the budget for their films is huge. So it’s not a level plain field.”. Richa Chaddha, who also debuted from a Non Bollywood background, says “People forget to realize that sometimes those not born in the fraternity attract more work from overseas because of their talent. But back home, we are not welcomed or valued the way we should,”

Sonam, however disagrees with claims of Nepotism and went on to say that, the two leading ladies of Bollywood, Priyanka and Deepika are not from Bollywood families and are ruling the face of Cinema, She asks, where is Nepotism in thier case. Alia also defended the assault of the word ‘Nepotism’ made to her claims to fame and said, that no one can plan their birth, its just nurturing that you get makes you take up a certain profession and everyone has to struggle in their own spheres.

Well this is an open debate, but I think that Bollywood should create a system of screening which should be transparent enough so that a word like Nepotism may not malign the image of an Industry as big and relevant as Cinema.
