Bollywood Song Stole Bipul Chettri’s Music But It’s Still Shit!

2:27 PM
Writers Neeraj Pun (NEO)

Bollywood has been ‘getting inspired’, screw it, we will just say what it is — Bollywood has been stealing since ages. Anything that’s good needs to be copied, whether a film, a scene or a song because creativity is just a myth for these guys. The latest victim of this trend is Bipul Chettri whose music has been ripped off in a song from an upcoming film ‘Hai Apna Dil Toh Awara’. The music for the song titled ‘Chhu Liya’ is composed, or let’s just say stolen, by Ajay Singha and it is sung by Papon and Neha Rajpal. It wouldn’t actually be a bad song if the music was not stolen but as we are so used to of listening to Bipul’s soothing voice along with that music, it sounds terrible.

Here's the song
Title : Chhu Liya
Singer : Papon & Neha Rajpal
Lyrics : Mohit Pathak
Music : Ajay Singha
Arranger/Programmer : Ajay Singha/ Nilotpal Bora

The people from "Hai Apna Dil Tou Awara" have removed the following video where music was straight away taken from the song Aasar of Bipul Chetteri because of too many dislikes and hate comments.

No Bollywood, it doesn’t work that way. You just don’t steal our favorite artist’s music and get away with it without anyone noticing. Busted!!

However, we had the copy of the version of song Chhu Liya where music was taken from the song Aasar of Bipul Chetteri and you can watch the video here

And here’s the original by Bipul Chettri - Asaar

Ranbir Kapoor in ‪Darjeeling‬: Well the Kapoor's Have Always Loved Our Hills and so has Bollywood

9:16 AM
While everyone is celebrating the arrival of Ranbir Kapoor in our hills, we are celebrating our hills, which has always attracted the Kapoors and many many more of the Bollywood fraternity. Ranbir's grandfather Raj Kappor was here in 1949, his father Rishi Kapoor and Grandpa - Raj shot one of the most memorable Indian movies - "Mera Naam Joker" here in our hills

Here is a list of Bollyhood movies shot in our hills, which we had published earlier on Nov 22, 2014

Darjeeling and Bollywood : An Iconic Love Story

Amongst all the Hill stations in India to have attracted their share of Bollywood fame, by far Darjeeling stands out as one of the most coveted.

From as far back as Raj Kapoor’s Barsaat shot in 1949 to the latest Yaariyan in 2014, Darjeeling has have had a very special place in the hearts of Bollywood.

One of the most iconic song which comes to one’s mind when talking about Darjeeling and Bollywood is Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore starrer “Mere Sapno Ki Rani Kab Aayegi Tu” from the movie Aradhana shot in 1969 [].

But very few know that 8 years ago a similar scene on the train had been shot by Super Star Dev Anand and Asha Parekh starrer movie “Jab Pyaar Kisi Se Hota Hai” in the song Jiya Ho Jiya Kuch Bol Do back in 1961 []

In the same year one of the best known Bollywood heroes Shammi Kapoor and Kalpana shot their entire movie “Professor” in the Darjeeling hills, with “Main Chali Main Chali” being shot in Chowrasta []

Another Sammi Kapoor and Shakila starrer movie released in the same year 1962 ‘China Town’ was also shot extensively in Darjeeling and went on to become a super hit []

Right after Dev Anand another super stars Manoj Kumar and Mala Sinha shot their 1st movie together ‘Hariyali Aur Raasta’ in 1962, in fact most of this movie is based in Darjeeling []

Asha Parekh and Dharmendra starrer 1966 Aaye Din Bahar Ke also became a super hit, it was shot extensively in the tea gardens of Darjeeling []

The year 1968 brought Dharmendra back to Darjeeling again, this time for Baharon ki Manzil which gained a lot from the exquisite scenes from our beloved hills []

The 1967 Sunil Dutt and Mumtaz Starrer 'Humraaz' was also shot in Darjeeling, its song “Niley Gagan K Taley” is one of the most recognized songs from the movie which was shot in Darjeeling []

In the same year in which Rajesh Khanna was stealing limelight by crooning “Mere Sapno Ki Rani Kab Aayegi Tu” Dev Anand and Asha Parekh starrer Mahal (1969) was raking in moolah in the market with their super hit song ‘Ye Duniya Wale Punchenge’ shot in Darjeeling []

The Kapoor family do have a very strong connection to Darjeeling, with Raj Kappor shooting important parts of his 1970 cult classic Mera Naam Joker and later Rishi Kapoor’s debut movie the controversial Bobby 1973 were both shot in Darjeeling []

Dev Anand loved Darjeeling and he came here to shoot numerous times in addition to his earlier ventures, he shot Joshila with erstwhile queen of Bollywood Hema Malini in 1973 []

The 1974 film Sagina saw Darjeeling hosting the amazingly talented trio of Dilip Kumar, Saira Banu, and Aparna Sen []

Big B – Amitabh Bachchan came to Darjeeling in 1976 for his movie Do Anjaane in which he played opposite Rekha and again in 1981 for his movie Barsat ki Ek Raat opposite Rakhi []. Needless to say both the movies were super hit.
1967. Raj Kapoor and Rishi Kapoor at Chowrasta in Mera Naam Joker
In 1979 Rajesh Khanna was back in Darjeeling with Simple Kapadia for the movie Anurodh, which features one of Kishore Kumar’s best song ‘Mere Dil Ne Tadapke’ []

1979 brought Vinod Khanna and the gorgeous Shabna Ajmi to Darjeeling for their Super Hit movie ‘Lahoo ke Do Rang.’ If you want to see Darjeeling before Andolan then you must check out this video []

I think the movies dried up after 1981 movie Barsat ki Ek Raat starring Amitabh and Rakhi due to the volatile political situation in Darjeeling, as I could not find any movies that were shot in this era.

The Bollywood connection to Darjeeling was revived again in 1992 with Shahrukh Khan starrer Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman with the very 1st song in the movie ‘Dil Hai Mera Diwaana’ shot in Darjeeling catapulting him to superstardom.

The very next year in 1993, Darjeeling saw Pooja Bhatt and Aditya Pancholi starrer ‘Chor Aur Chaand’ hit the screens, with amazing songs and scenes from Darjeeling making the movie super hit []

1998 saw Marc Robinson and Tara Deshpande star in the movie Bada Din with the song ‘Meri Sanson Mein Tum Ho’ going on to become song of the year… once again Darjeeling was the super star []

In the new millennium 2002 saw the making of one of the best movies ever shot in Darjeeling ‘Mr and Mrs. Iyer.’ Konkana Sen Sharma and Rahul Bose starer movie was beautiful in a sense that it not only captured the hills, but also the Terai and Dooars. Unlike other movie, which focus most on the mountains and tea, Mr. and Mrs Iyer told the story of the place and its people unlike [].

The year 2003-04 brought back King Khan to Darjeeling, after a gap of nearly 12 years Shahrukh had come to Darjeeling, and in the gap had gone on to become an INTERNATIONAL SUPER STAR. His movie with Farah Khan ‘Mein Hoon Na’ was more or less all right, a typical Bollywood flick, yet it became super hit. Darjeeling once again proving to be very lucky for King Khan [].

The year 2005 saw Saif Ali Khan retracing his mothers footsteps back to Darjeeling with the movie Parineeta, both movie and the song ‘Kasto Maja Hai Railaima’[] shot on our lovely Toy Train went on to become one of the most hummed tune of the year.

Anjan Dutta’s 2008 movie Via Darjeeling may not have made much impact in terms of box office returns, but the movie did receive a warm reception and critical acclaim []. It was also a very important movie as far as Darjeeling is concerned, as it was shot entirely in Darjeeling during the height of Gorkhaland agitation at that. Anjan Dutta's love for Darjeeling is renowned, but by making his movie in the period that he did, he proved that once you are a Darjeelingey, you will forever remain a hard core Darjeelingey at heart.

Keeping up with his family’s deep connection to Darjeeling, Ranbir Kapoor following on the footsteps of his illustrious family icons - Raj Kapoor, Shammi Kapoor and Rishi Kapoor came to Darjeeling in 2012 for the movie Barfi. The movie which went on to win numerous awards and gained critical acclaim for both Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra once again became another Super Hit movie with the Darjeeling Connection []

2014 saw new comers Himansh kohli, Rakul Preet shoot for movie Yaariyan, which was an average film, but Darjeeling and Sikkim provided a jaw dropping background to the movie []

Currently Adhyayan Suman and Sara Loren are shooting for the movie Ishq Click in Darjeeling and the movie is expected to be released later this year – are these the new generation of stars in the making?

I might have missed out on many movies shot in Darjeeling, some deliberately like I did not include movies made in Nepali or Bengali, and many unintentionally as I do not know about them...

If any of you do, please add in the comments section... we could use the list to promote tourism in Darjeeling.

His Reaction After Receving  "Hamro Gaurav" 

" 1. Receiving the "Hamro Gaurav" Award is my most important award that I have received so far. There is nothing more satisfying than to get recognition from your own family.

2. I have been in the Bombay Film Industry for a long time now. I have struggled a lot and succeeded to quite an extent to get enough respect in this field. There are no regrets in what I have experienced so far.

3. My dream now is to see our hills being an attraction not only to Bollywood but to the whole Indian Film Industry.

4. If we can give some sort of facilities and knowledge of our beautiful locations, which we have in plenty, we should be able to attract more film making units from the country.

5. Films attract a lot of tourists to the destination. We have examples of Indian tourists flocking Switzerland, Mauritius, Thailand etc. which have all been propagated by Hindi films.

6. Such an influx can create job opportunities and expand our children's horizon in the art of film making and a host of ancillaries.

7. This is a dream I hope I can see materialise in my lifetime."

The film, which launches Anushka Ranjan in the lead, goes on floors mid-September and will be shot at exotic locales. Binod says, "It's a tale of young love and friendship with a blend of promising fresh talent. The newcomers have been trained at The ITA School of Performing Arts, with an assembly of veterans like Rishi Kapoor, Satish Kaushik, etc."

Director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, who has worked with the cinematographer on RDB and BMB, says, "Movies that we've done together have gained cult status. He has been my companion in everything from structuring to shooting, from screenplay to the final edit."

Adds director Rajkumar Hirani, who has collaborated with Binod on Munna Bhai MBBS, "I've always wondered why he has never directed a film. He is not just a great cinematographer, but also a great storyteller who understands cinema deeply."

‘Wedding Pulao’, which is a story about young love and friendship, will be shot at several exotic locales of India and abroad. Filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, who has worked with Binod in ‘Rang De Basanti’ and ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, was happy for the cinematographer to have taken to direction. Even Rajkumar Hirani, who was associated with Binod for his debut movie ‘Munnabhai MBBS’, was full of praise for Binod’s vast and deep knowledge of cinema.

Gorkha Cinematographer Binod Pradhan
Gorkha Cinematographer Binod Pradhan
1. Could you please tell us about yourself, how was it growing up in Kalimpong? 
A. I was a sidha bacha in my childhood. I never made my parents pull their hair in exasperation (I am lying)... I think I was emotional and constantly in love with someone secretly [classic Darjeeling ailment – Maan man mai love] or with some actress in my dreams. I was a dreamer weaving stories around me. I was never a troublemaker or a local gangster itching for a fight. Most of my energy went in photography.

I love and look back on those days when I used to go around outside Kalimpong taking photographs of the landscapes and people. I used to have a lot of fun all by myself and my cameras. Today’s digital technology has put a camera into everybody’s hand, but how many look out at nature and capture it? More than before, but maybe not enough.

2. What made you take interest in photography? 
A. My father did. I remember as a Pre-school kid I used to go to Pushpa Studio where my dad used to work. I was engrossed seeing the pictures of the Tibetans come from Tibet. As a kid I remember watching from my first floor house in 10th Mile the rain and rain drops dance on the electric wires on the poles outside. It left me quite fascinated seeing how they combine and drop of as new drops came sliding to meet other drops. I think as a kid I was quite visually aware. I was horrified to notice that my father was smaller than the cherry blossom tree in school in St. Joseph’s Convent where I was studying in Kg. And I just loved watching movies. I used to plague my father every time a Hollywood movie came to the theatres.

A friend and I spent some of our break time mimicking horse with our fingers and imagining them to be cowboys chasing the villains in movies. I was in class 4 or 5 in Dr. Graham’s Homes when my dad (who owned a studio by then) gave me some left over negative film and a simple camera called Fulvue. I was absolutely thrilled and took pictures of my friend. On the roof of his house he stood like a hero in one of the pictures. Since that day there was no looking back.

The magic of photography caught me never to leave me again. I got involved and learnt processing and printing from my dad. The first professional work was covering a school sports day when I was in class 6. I remember mixing up the shutter values and most of the runners came blurred.

The School days was a learning period in photography for me where I learnt from books and finally I knew more than what my father knew. Such a passion it was. I sacrificed my sleep, my free time to photography.

3. When/how did you decide to take up Cinematography as a profession?
A. Cinematography was an accident. By the time I finished school in Kalimpong, I was like a king in my small pond of photography. I had little knowledge of what the outside photographic world had to offer. My thirst kept pressing me for more. A sentence from Mr. Ganesh Mani Pradhan changed my life. He said why don’t you try to study in Film Institute of India in Poona. My father, ever encouraging, took me to Poona to check on the school. I learnt that photography was the first year course there, after which they taught Cinematography.

The next year I applied and got admission against quite a tough competition. All those school and college years of interest in photography helped me, and the examiners were quite floored by my knowledge on photography. I even corrected the professor of Cinematography about a term in photography (actually I laid a trap ).

The Dean of the Institute requested to keep a picture of a rose that I had taken. I was more than happy to give it to him as I realized that my seat was assured by this request. I was number one in the selected list. This was the beginning to my marriage with cinematography.

4. Cinematography must have an unusual profession choice back in the day, how did your parents react? Did they not push you to join a government job?
A. I don’t think my father would have pushed me into any other profession. I would have committed harakiri (hahaha). But such was my intensity to learn photography that my father didn’t even think of sending me for anything else. Right from my school days my career target was set. Even my friends appreciated my decision, so early on in school life, to be a professional photographer.

I could have run my father’s Om Studio straight after finishing school, but I wanted to have a formal training, to see what else was there. I loved the quality of the displayed pictures of Das Studio in Darjeeling. I knew there was more to learn.

Once I passed from the Institute, I realised that I won’t be able to work in Om Studio anymore. I was over qualified and my interest had shifted to cinematography. My parents, fully supported my desire to move to Mumbai.

5. We know that you have struggled a lot and persevered, can you please tell us about your struggling days?
A. In the beginning after finishing the course in what is called as Motion Picture Photography, I was too scared of facing Bombay city. I knew nothing of the city or how to try to get work out there. I knew of no cinematographer or their address where I could contact them for work and the stories I had heard about them didn’t encourage me one bit.

Mr Prem Sagar, a known cinematographer had come to examine my senior finalists when I was in my 2nd year. I was assisting one of my seniors for the exercise. He was impressed by my work and one year later called me to join his company after my course.

This was a huge Godsend since if it weren’t for this opportunity I would have gone back home. I joined him on a salary of Rupees 500. This drove my single minded determination to be a Cinematographer in Bombay. Later I had opportunities to get double the salary in Doordarshan. One senior friend from Singapore even tempted me to join him in a coverage job abroad for a stupendous salary of 10,000. They didn’t attract me at all because these weren’t jobs of making movies.

6. Could you please tell us about how you got your break? 
After two years as assistant to three different cinematographers, I decided that I should do independent work only. I gave up a fairly interesting and by then lucrative job to try to work as a cinematographer. My period of hardship began. In one year I remember I worked for just about a week. I started getting some work in documentaries but mostly I was in a financial mess.

Sixteen Ex students formed a co-operative called Yukt with the idea of making non-commercial films. This included people like Mani Kaul and Sayeed Mirza. I was part of it and got to shoot my first film as one of the cinematographers in a Marathi film called Ghashiram Kotwal, a highly experimental film that didn’t get released in theatres. Another jobless phase later another came another Marathi film called Jait re Jait. Slowly, very slowly jobs started trickling in, Hindi, Nepali, Assamese, Haryanvi. There was no looking back.

7. Which was your big break, as in a movie which announced to the world that you have arrived? And how did that happen? 
Parinda was my second film with Vinod Chopra. My approach to shooting this film was to make it look like anything but a Hindi film. I never liked the way Hindi films looked right since my college days. I took inspiration from Godfather (still is one of my favourite films.) shot by Gordon Willis, who is among the best cinematographers the world has seen.

I couldn’t reach his standards but it went fairly high enough to be noticed by the film industry. I got a lot of appreciation but was very disappointed in losing the Filmfare award to Chandani.

8. Was it difficult for you as a Gorkhali to be established in the Mumbai film industry?
A. As a person not having to face the camera, I didn’t have to suffer any sort of racial discrimination. I probably didn’t know too many people to really understand or face that problem. Some thought I was a very strange looking Maharashtrian Pradhan. Many times I had to explain that we have Pradhan in Nepali too. Some called me chinky, but it was in all goodness and fun.

9. Is the industry more open to the people from North-East India today than it was when you started? How?
A. Now the doors are wide open for people from all over the country, as long as they are good in their work. When I came, there were fewer films and even fewer cinematographers. Television which absorbs a very large number of people today was non-existent then. Life and struggle was proportionately more difficult. I know of many who have gone back home with shattered dreams.

10. Today Binod Pradhan is synonymous with amazing creativity, what does success feel like? 
For me today, success is a stepping stone for more creativity in cinematography.

11. From amongst all the movies that you have done which was/has been your most difficult project, and why?
A. Creatively, I would consider Rang De Basanti more challenging. Most films have to be treated differently from each other. That’s why films like Parinda, 1942 A Love Story, Devdas, Rang De Basanti, Delhi 6, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag look different from each other. Actually I had the opportunity to make these films look different from each other.

12. Which project is the closest to your heart and why?
A. I can’t put my finger on one. With the amount of hard work one puts on each film, I don’t think I can be partial to one. Lets say that the harder I work on a film, the closer it comes to me.

13. Who is (are) your favourite director(s), and why?
A. Vinod Chopra and Rakeyesh Mehra since I have grown many folds working with them.

14. What do you like the most about your profession?
A. I like this idea of working with one of the most ethereal of mediums in the universe. Light.

15. We hear that you are going to direct a movie soon, are you excited? 
A. Hope it turns out fine. Actually I’m quite worried.

16. What is the secret of your success when so many others have failed in your field? 
A. I wish I knew. Maybe it is very hard conscientious work and always trying harder than before.

17. Any words of advice for youngsters who want to follow on your footsteps
A. Study hard and don’t be afraid of experimenting. Eat, drink and breathe your passion. The last thing that should attract you in this field or should I say that you should never get attracted to in this field is - because of glamour. The movie industry needs a lot of hard work, long erratic hours of work, creativity and camaraderie. If you have them all then you might make it, with some luck I guess.

18. Do you have any plans to make Nepali movies? or Hindi movies based on stories from our region?
A. No plans as of now. I would love to if an appropriate project comes my way.

19. Some people have suggested that all the big names from our parts of the world Darjeeling, Kalimpong, Kurseong, Mirik, Siliguri, Sikkim do not care for our people once they make it big? What do you have to say to them?
A. As far as I am concerned, it may not be true. I have given opportunities to deserving people. I have helped my people in my own small way whether it is for studies in Kalimpong and/or odd jobs. Problems arise when people get attracted to Mumbai film industry because of the glamour attached. Ever so often kids come to me with dreams of making it big but without any knowledge, especially in acting. It isn’t an easy path that I could help anyone to be an actor or for that matter a cinematographer. For every one success there are hundreds who fail. So unless one has talent, and I see some hope, I can’t help.

20. Do you have any plans that includes Darjeeling region in the future? 
A. None at the moment besides my son’s marriage in Kalimpong.

21. Any comments on Gorkha identity issue?
A. It is a problem I have faced quite often before. If I call myself a Nepali, I am not from Nepal. So do I call myself a Bengali? This is the only direct problem that I have faced.

22. Any comments on Gorkhaland statehood issue? 
A. I am like any other Gorkha from my soil. I yearn for this dream to come true. It would be a big benefit to my people in the hills who have been quite isolated from the outside world.

[We are most grateful to Shri. Binod Pradhan ji for taking his invaluable time to answer all our questions. We acknowledge the efforts put in by The DC associate Bishal Lama and the help from Ms. Mandakini Pradhan for making this interview possible - thank you guys]

Gujarati film The Good Road is India’s Oscar entry

8:21 AM
Surprising and shocking many in Bollywood, The National Film Development Corporation of India’s (NFDC) Gujarati production The Good Road has been selected as India’s entry to the Oscars this year despite a lot of buzz about debutant director Ritesh Batra’s film Lunchbox being the 

The directorial debut of Gyan Correa, The Good Road won the national award for best Gujarati film, which stars Ajay Gehi, Keval Katrodia and Sonali Kulkarni.

The overjoyed director had no idea that his film was in the running for the Oscars and was surprised to know it had been selected as India’s entry this year.
“I can’t believe it. It is a great feeling and I am recovering my breath and understanding the implications. I hope we win,” said Correa 

The dark and gritty film revolves around three people discovering themselves while on a road trip through Kutch.

Even the film’s star Ajay Gehi was caught unawares. “I’m surprised as I didn’t know. You (HT) are the first one to tell me. It wasn’t a big budget commercial film but the team was very driven. I connected with the script.”

 Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi tweeted his congratulations to the cast and crew, “Delighted to know that Gujarati film ‘The Good Road’ has been chosen to represent India at Oscars. My best wishes.”

While those involved with the film were overjoyed, others in the film fraternity were shocked and some were disappointed. 
Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who plays Aslam Shaikh in the Lunchbox, was thunderstruck: “I was 100 per cent sure that The Lunchbox is going for Oscars. It’s a shock that it didn’t. I have never heard of The Good Road.”  

Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap was also flummoxed by the choice and felt the federation needs a policy regarding Oscar entries. “Feeling very very disappointed, can’t comment on the film I have not seen, but it better make it to final five,” he tweeted.

“We should make a clean policy (for film selection), you want to send the best film, then send the national award winner,” he added.
Even Karan Johar was taken aback: “Really shocked and disappointed.. #LUNCHBOX had every factor working in its favour... we may have just lost our golden chance.. SAD!!!.” he said in his tweet.

Brushing off these reactions Correa says, “They are entitled to their opinion, what can I say?”

But not all reactions were negative, actor- filmmaker Arbaaz Khan supported the decision, “Any film that gets recognised at the Oscar is a proud moment for the filmmakers and the country that it comes from. It is a very proud moment.”

The actress had earlier directed a short film, written in collaboration with an Australian writer, which was shot in the US.

Talking about her new project as a director, Kangana told IANS: "I want to make a film, but for direction I will have to leave this country for a year and at this point of time when I have so many films I don't think its the right time."

"The film that I will be directing is not a Bollywood film but it will also release in India. It's an international film meant for the international and the Indian audience as well.

"But I don't want to make a film just for the heck of it. When the right time comes I will talk more about it," added the 26-year-old who has recently launched her own website.

The actress has featured in films like "Raaz - The Mystery Continues", "Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai", "Fashion" and "Tanu Weds Manu". Her forthcoming film is the much awaited "Krrish 3".

He is playing a cameo in wife Sunny Leone starrer Jackpot but Daniel Weber says he has no plans to have a career in Bollywood.

Daniel, who is Sunny's manager and owns an adult film production house, said he did the Kaizad Gustad film because the director requested him to.

Daniel is also taking Hindi classes with his actress wife but he said that he is learning the language to run his business smoothly here.

Daniel, who has acted in adult films before, said he is playing a foreigner in the film, which will hit theatres next year.

"We were shooting Jackpot in Goa and Kaizad needed someone for a cameo role. He approached me with the offer and I couldn't say no. I am playing the role of a conman and also share screen space with Sunny," he said.

The film also stars Sachiin Joshi, Naseeruddin Shah and Tamil actor Bharath.

Chennai Express already earned Rs 48 crore

11:41 AM
In the Bollywood world, where revenue is largely broken up into opening weekend collections, both in India and abroad, satellite rights and advertising and sponsorship rights, Chennai Express according to reports has already earned Rs 48 crore. Opening day collections were at Rs 33.12 crore pipping, Salman Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger which had earned Rs 32.92 crore.

So far running to full theatres, the film has also earned close to Rs 7 crore in paid previews. Prakhar Joshi, of PVR Cinemas told Hindustan Times “Now CE holds the record of biggest opening day at PVR – if you add previews, this number becomes even bigger. We were always confident of film doing well thus backed it with maximum show caning (sic) and right ticket pricing.”

According to Business Standard the Disney UTV produced film has also done extremely well in foreign markets, where the preview collections were at Rs 7.8 crore.

“We’ve received an overwhelming response from all quarters and the film is being loved by everyone,” Gaurav Verma, director – India theatrical distribution, Studios, Disney UTV told IANS.

“Though ‘Chennai Express’ is playing in highest number of screens for any film, we still ran out of capacity in most locations due to this huge demand at the box office and the film is on its way to create new benchmarks,” added Verma.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared that the collective figures minted by the movie on Thursday and Friday in India amounted to Rs. 39.87 crore nett.

Said to have been made at a budget of Rs. 70 crore, “Chennai Express” had a grand release in over 3,500 screens in the country and 700 screens abroad.

The advance bookings for the film were strong, said Girish Wankhede of Cinemax chain.

“It’s doing very well. On Thursday, there were 80 to 90 percent occupancy of seats. Advance booking was strong for this weekend. It will do very well in coming weeks also,” Wankhede told IANS.

Down south also, the movie has received a good response.

Trade analyst Trinath shared: “This is probably the best ever opening for a SRK film in the state. Even though people voiced about the stereotyping in ‘Chennai Express’, none had any issues with it and embraced it with a smile.”

In the film, Shah Rukh plays a north Indian, who falls in love with a Tamil girl, essayed by his “Om Shanti Om” co-star Deepika.

The number of shows were doubled in Chennai for “Chennai Express” as Tamil movie “Thalaivaa” didn’t release there.

“Since ‘Thalaivaa’ didn’t release, the number of shows for ‘Chennai Express’ were doubled (on Friday). We had about 95 percent occupancy for the paid previews and most shows over the weekend are booked,” a multiplex representative in Chennai, said.

Mumbai-based trade analyst Komal Nahta didn’t find the film as entertaining as Shetty’s previous films like the “Golmaal” series, but he didn’t deny that the movie indeed got a “fantastic start” in India.

Internationally too, the film is said to be doing well.

In the Gulf region, it released Thursday and minted $435,000, with 28 screens yet to report. But it is estimated to cross $550,000 by the time all screens report, said a source.

In Singapore, two screens are yet to report, but it made $95,359 on Thursday.

In Australia, the paid previews Thursday amounted to $34,314, while in New Zealand, the figures came to $6,431.

Adarsh shared on Twitter that the movie took a “huge start in US-Canada”, earning $2,60,000 (Rs.15, 776,020.00 approximately) out of Thursday night preview shows.

Officials at UTV Motion Pictures, which has co-produced the potboiler with Shah Rukh’s Red Chillies Entertainment, are happy.

The movie is setting new opening day and paid previews records and benchmarks for Hindi movies in most countries,” Amrita Pandey, executive director, International Distribution, Syndication and Disney Media Distribution, Studios, Disney UTV, said in a statement.

“In many cinema chains we’ve added shows and the movie was moved to additional screens and to highest capacity screens. This has been a massive opening to a huge release,” she added.

As we speak #RecordExpress is one of the top trends on Twitter India.

Katrina Kaif resolved to never wear a bikini

11:26 AM
Katrina Kaif is upset about her bikini pictures appearing in the media.One wonders why because she wore a two-piece in Boom and even on Cosmo cover. 

Says a close friend of the actress, “She blames herself entirely for what happened. She feels she should not have worn a bikini on a crowded beach. 
The minute she saw Indians on the beach she regretted being so relaxed and casual even if on a private holiday.”

Katrina Kaif resolved to never wear a bikini
Katrina has resolved to never wear a bikini even on the beach. Says her friend, “Shorts and a top. That will be her mandatory beachwear from now on. This experience has taught Katrina never to let her guard down.” The pictures of Katrina Kaif holidaying on a beach in Spain has snowballed into a major controversy, what with the actress writing an open letter to the press questioning the  ethics of printing pics from a very private moment. Clearly, she is not familiar with how papparazzi works.

The no-bikini clause will now be a mandatory part of Katrina’s career. In fact, she isn’t wearing a bikini in Dhoom 3 either. 

Apparently, Aditya Chopra did try to make Katrina embrace beachwear. “But Katrina persuaded Adi to drop the idea. They worked out a compromise that suited both of them. Post the leaked pictures of hers in Ibiza she is unlikely to get into a bikini no matter what the prompting,”

BA Pass movie Review

10:41 PM
There is sex. There is sleaze. Then there is that state of confusion in between where most Bollywood films trying to peddle the S-trick dangle. BA Pass is far from sleaze and manages to avoid any confusion. As the reels roll, you witness a rare Bollywood flick that gives the subject a noir edge, though you wish the film was less tedious with its scenes of sex.

BA Pass movie Review

Debutant director-producer-cinematographer Ajay Bahl's film is based on Mohan Sikka's short story The Railway Aunty that featured in the 2009 anthology Delhi Noir. Sex played a deeply important part to push forward the plot of Sikka's original tale.

A story of less than 7,000 words, however, is not enough to run the full length of a feature film. So Ritesh Shah's screenplay incorporates a few improvisations beyond what Sikka wrote. These work for the film in parts and stretch the narrative on occasions.

This is the story of Mukesh (Shadab Kamal), an orphan who stays with his aunt in Paharganj and is about to finish college. The sultry neighbourhood aunty Sarika (Shilpa Shukla) sets out to seduce him and Mukesh falls for her charm. Too late, he realises she has trapped him into a sordid life he cannot escape.

Debutant director Bahl does a fair job in tracing Mukesh's moral corruption and his eventual doom. Bahl is bang-on while imagining Sarika too, as a middle class housewife with a dual life. But these, you could argue, were readymade advantages he drew from Sikka's material.

The tough deal for Bahl - as it mostly is for any filmmaker adapting a written work for the screen - was to depict the psychological subtext of The Railway Aunty. The sexual undertone about Mukesh often unfolds through his thought process in Sikka's story. Bahl avoids the aspect, and mostly rests his taut film on action defining the protagonist's plight.

BA Pass is essentially a coming-of-age saga using sex as a tool to carry the plot forward. There have been plenty of unforgettable films within that genre in world cinema - Alfonso Cuaron's Y Tu Mama Tambien and Louis Malle's Murmur Of The Heart come to mind. For Bollywood, this is a first attempt of sorts, which makes BA Pass an unusual film.

If Bahl throws challenging roles at his lead cast, the actors reciprocate admirably. Shilpa Shukla, still struggling in Bollywood despite Khamosh Pani and Chak De! India, is brilliant as the scheming seductress. She brims with screen presence. Newcomer Shadab Kamal understands his complex role well. Shilpa and Shadab share a bristling chemistry as dominant and sex slave. It gives the film a strange USP.

It's not quite popcorn & cola stuff but if you are forever hungering for cinema of a different taste, check this one out.

Sonam Kapoor will not date anyone from film industry

12:41 PM
Mumbai: Young and bubbly actress Sonam Kapoor, who was romantically linked with her 'I Hate Luv Storys' director Punit Malhotra in the past, says she will not date anyone from the film industry as she believes all the good ones here are already taken.

"I won't date anyone from the industry, honestly. Industry guys are amazing, but the good ones are taken," Sonam said here.
"I have learnt that work and pleasure should be separate," added the actress, who was present at the cover launch of Stardust magazine, featuring her and her 'I Hate Luv Storys' co-star Imran Khan.

Sonam was all praises for Imran, who, according to her, is "the best looking guy in the industry".
Recalling an incident when she felt overshadowed by the actor's good looks and glow, Sonam said: "We were shooting for 'I Hate Luv Storys', and I kept on telling him, 'If you (Imran) will look more beautiful than me, then I will really get upset with you'."
"I was really upset at that time as his skin was really glowing and I was like, 'Oh my god! I will look awkward now next to him (in the film)'," she added.
Off the screen one doesn't know, Sonam's on-screen love life has been quite exciting, courtesy movies like 'Saawariya' and the recently released 'Raanjhanaa'.
Meanwhile, the actress will soon be seen in the remake of 1980 hit movie 'Khoobsoorat'.

Ranbir's parents angry over snapshots with Katrina

8:41 PM
Bollywood couple Rishi and Neetu Kapoor are extremely angry about holiday snapshots of their son Ranbir with his alleged sweetheart Katrina Kaif.

There's no denying that there has been a sudden spurt in the number of photographs and buzz about Ranbir Kapoor's alleged romance with Katrina Kaif grabbing headlines. And those close to the Kapoors say that the actor's parents, Rishi and Neetu are extremely upset with their son's personal life being splashed across the pages.

Sources say his mother is especially miffed with his love life being talked about in the open. Intimate photographs of Ranbir and Katrina from their recent holiday in Ibiza is what seems to have upset the actor's parents.

A source says, "Ranbir's parents have never reacted very well to news about their son's dalliances. They feel this will affect his professional life."

An enraged Rishi Kapoor said, "I don't subscribe to this nonsense," before abruptly ending our phone call.

Blast from the past

After Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone slammed Ranbir Kapoor on Karan Johar's chat show a few years ago, it apparently annoyed the Kapoors to no end. Rishi even went to the extent of saying he would never work with Karan again. They eventually patched up.


Issaq Movie Review

1:21 PM
So here’s what we know about the Benares in which director Manish Tewari sets Issaq. There are more staircases in the city than there are mosquitoes in Kolkata. Its men spit compulsively and everywhere. Wiry old sadhus have elaborate chemistry labs with test tubes, beakers and flasks in their backyards. These sadhus can outdo Pooja Bedi with their sex-life advice, and they levitate with the same ease with which an average Indian man burps or scratches his crotch. Benares is also under grave threat from the Maoists who, being as imaginative as the film’s director, aren’t so pedestrian as to behave like real-life Maoists; they smuggle sand.

Issaq Movie Review
Background set, let’s move on to the story of the film. No spoilers here, just what the director has said already said — Issaq is an adaptation of Shakespeare’s much-adapted Romeo and Juliet. The counterparts of Capulet and Montagues are Kashyap and Mishra. (If you missed this stunning usage of alliteration here, you should probably never watch a Bollywood film ever again.)

The Kashyaps have a girl, Bachchi. The Mishras’ boy is called Rahul. Rahul, played by Prateik, is your average small-town lover boy who struggles to speak in English and hits on anything that has breasts. The only redeeming quality about our soon-to-be Romeo are those bronzed, toned biceps, tailor-made for banian commercials. Bachchi, played by newcomer Amyra Dastur, is a pretty girl who looks inexplicably pleased throughout the film.

The duo meet at Benares’ counterpart of a masque ball: Holi party. At this party, Rahul drinks bhang and stares into the camera creepily. Bachchi, on the other hand, reveals her inner rebel by wearing a pair of horns alongside her salwar kameez and stoically waist-jerks to the music of dhol. I hope feminist hearts are bursting with joy at the mere thought of this uplifting demonstration of girl power. Drunk boy sneaks up to girl in prayer room and kisses her. This, ladies and gentlemen, is romantic. Because there’s nothing even mildly disturbing about an inebriated man forcibly kissing an unknown girl after barging into her house, right? All’s fair in love and war in Benares. Haven’t you seen Raanjhanaa?

Then we meet the villains: the aforementioned sand-smuggling Maoists led by one Tamil man called ‘Madrasi’, a red-eyed, perennially-grumbling evil mama played by Ravi Kissen, a stepmom (Rajyashree Badola) and a fair, chubby-cheeked policeman call Prithvi. The Kashyaps and the Mishras are in the business of capturing Benares’s ghats. They are also in the extremely profitable business of sand smuggling. How does sand smuggling work? SUV-filled goons drive on to endless stretches of sand and camp there, taking truck-full of sand and silt away. Given how prolific these men are shown to be in Issaq, you’d imagine Benares to be a desert of Thar’s proportions. Anyway, so this squabbling over who gets to smuggle more mud/sand make the families sworn enemies.

Meanwhile, Bacchi and Rahul fall in love. Their moment under Cupid’s sun is not announced by a random song. It comes with the girl’s earth shattering declaration to her lover that she is a virgin. Boy responds with a disturbing expression on his face you usually associate with 12-year-olds watching porn for the first time. Girl finds nothing creepy about it and then they end up singing a song together.

The families are outraged, the sand smuggling Maoist is out for a kill and the policeman wants the girl. The least absurd thing that happens in the rest of the film is when a young Maoist shoots a bunch of policemen, chanting he wants Katrina Kaif.

We’re not yet sure what Prateik’s talents are as an actor except denouncing surnames. And the most memorable role he has played till date was only second in importance to Genelia D’Souza’s hair clips in Jaane Tu Yaa Jaane Naa. In Issaq, Prateik mistakes himself to be in a Nike commercial. He runs in more languid slo-mo than Kajol in “Tujhe Dekha Toh Yeh Jaana Sanam” and he jumps over more rooftops than Akshay Kumar has for Thumbs Up. And then there’s his dialogue delivery, which is a scary reminder of how Katrina Kaif mangled lines in Boom. Not much is required of our Juliet. Dastur looks facewash-ad fresh and pretty. She wears a whole bunch of nice kurtis throughout the film. Brownie points to her for that.

One wonders, however, what is a greater tragedy — Romeo and Juliet or what Issaq made of that classic love story.

Review : Poonam Pandey's Nasha is a cheap and forgettable film

10:39 PM
After reading this review you must recommend me for a bravery award. Poonam Pandey's Nasha is a cheap and forgettable film, despite all the loud claims she made on Twitter. The storyline is weak and the acting is pathetic. Nasha is such a bad film that it needs to be ranked 'Minus Zero'. This is because some see a wee bit of positivity in a zero too. Therefore to dispel any such remote notions, it's a  Minus Zero.

Review : Poonam Pandey's Nasha is a cheap and forgettable film

It is the story of a school in Panchgani where the students are loud, shameless and boisterous. They do not mind sharing cheap jokes and making adult comments. Poonam Pandey's entry in this school as a theatre teacher is all that was needed! A boy called Sahil falls for her and then comes her boyfriend Samuel who, much to the chagrin of Poonam, begins to trouble Sahil.

Samuel is actually the story's villain who breaks Poonam's heart as she discovers his other affair and his bad habits (he is caught in a rave party!) Sahil comes to support his heart-broken Ma'am. But this moralistic teacher says she must go away as this relationship is immoral - but not before she has a steamy sex session with her student!

Poonam Pandey is a disaster in the name of acting. Her husky voice sounds terrible on screen. Her acting in the film is so pathetic that when she was shouting, people in the cinema hall were laughing!

This 'upright' teacher teaches the most immoral lesson of love - "Love is like summer vacations, it gives different type of pleasure every year," says Poonam and the crowd hails it with a loud applause! The screenplay is cliched and the songs are mediocre. Amit Saxena has failed miserably as a director. His Jism was classy because it had the Bhatt camp background, but Nasha is nothing but P-grade (Poonam Grade).

Sahil is average, his Ma'am is horrible and Samuel is good. Camera work is average and editing is quite poor. 

Those who want to go to theatres in hope of watching bold scenes will be in for disappointment because everything bold has been shown in the promos.

This film has exposed the 'acting' skills of Poonam Pandey and I am sure any sensible film maker will think twice before signing her. It is a cheap and dangerous Nasha that should be avoided at all costs!
