I still cannot forget 9 November, 2007, the day Om Shanti Om released! This movie had everything possible for an entertaining night out, and I must say, I was not disappointed. Double roles, unfinished business from a previous life, hidden marriages and star crossed lovers; what is there not to love about this movie?! Om Shanti Om boasts of influences from the past classical hits from Bollywood. Whether we like it or not, Deepika Padukone’s character in Om Shanti Om draws a major influence from Hema Malini as the Dream Girl.

As Farha Khan’s directorial debut, Om Shanti Om could not have been done any better. The movie mocked the Indian Film Fare Awards and brought to reality the various loopholes in the Bollywood film industry. From the very first scene, I fell in love with the movie. Deepika Padukone pulls off both sides of her characters with ease and precision while Shah Rukh Khan played the role of a spoilt, love struck bratty junior artist, with unparalleled ease.

The much awaited song, Dard E Disco, saw 31 actors and actresses coming together on screen for the first time ever and for this, I laud Farah Khan! As a director, Farah Khan went with guns a blazing and made a mark for herself at a time when people were producing films with no real substance in them. For me, Arjun Rampal stole the show as the quintessential bad boy the way he smoked, the way he carried himself, everything about him just blew my breath away.

Today, as Om Shanti Om turns ten, I pause to ponder on one important fact. Filmmakers these days are so terrified of doing something as original as Om Shanti Om. Everyone is petrified of a bad review and what can happen if the film tanks. Why can not more people not take a risk like Farah Khan and create something beautiful? Today is a day for reminiscing and as Om Shanti Om turns ten, I think I am going to sit and binge watch this masterpiece of a movie as  many times as I can!

Omerta Second Trailer Is Bone Chilling,#Omerta,Rajkummar Omerta Second Trailer out,Rajkummar hindi movie Omerta new trailer out,bollywood film Omerta latest trailer,Omerta hindi movie another Trailer revealed,Mango Bollywood,latest bollywood news and gossip

Omerta, the latest offering from Rajkummar Rao and Hansal Mehta, is making the rounds for all the right reasons. The first trailer for the film dropped a while ago and while it was all things scary, the new trailer which just hit the internet is bone chilling.

If you thought the first trailer was enough to not let the kids sleep at night, then the second one keeps the adults up.  The almost three minute long trailer opens with a shot of Rajkummar as Omar Saeed Shaikh torturing an individual. “You are conspiring to destroy the world, but I won’t let that happen,” he says. Afterwards, there is a montage of shots of the World Trade Centre collapsing, followed by other quick shots of crimes Shaikh has committed. Watch the trailer here.

Omerta is based on the life of British terrorist Omar Saeed Shaikh, who was responsible for the attacks on the Twin Towers, the 2002 kidnapping and murder of journalist Daniel Pearl in Pakistan, and the 2008 Mumbai attacks, among other heinous crimes. Already screened at a number of film festivals across the world, the film has gotten raving reviews already. Earlier scheduled to hit the screens on 20 April, 2018, Omerta is now going to hit the screens on 11 May, 2018.

Parmanu Controversy Turns Uglier

Published

on

Bollywood films have had a huge tug of war with release dates ever since the Padmaavat Controversy. While some movies are looking at releasing on a different date to avoid clashes, others have their release issues due to creative differences.

The current scenario between John Abraham and KriArj Entertainment’s Prernaa Arora over their film Parmanu – The Story of Pokhran is quite ugly. John Abraham took the legal route and filed separate complaints about cheating, breach of trust, defamation and offences under the Information Technology Act. Parmanu has been delayed a lot since December and after debating on several dates, the producers have now come to the terms to release the film on 28 May, 2018.

According to the recent reports, the legal notice was sent to KriArj Entertainment, Essel Vision, John Abraham’s JA Entertainment and Vashu Bhagnani’s Pooja Entertainment by Delhi based firm on behalf of Gothic Entertainment. The report claims that the production had paid a sum of Rs 12.25 crore for multiple films production including Parmanu – The Story of Pokhran. As the producers Prernaa and John were fighting over monetary issues in Bombay High Court, this production company’s name never popped up.

Directed by Abhishek Sharma, Parmanu – The Story of Pokhran stars John Abraham, Diana Penty and Boman Irani, the film is an ode to the Indian army and scientists, who although ordinary people, truly accomplished extraordinary feats in the face of adversity. It salutes, celebrates and truly embraces the slogan: Jai Jawan Jai Vigyan. While the premise of the film is based on true events, the characters are fictitious.
