mango Bollywood Rating  :   3.5/5.0

Remember English Vinglish, the movie which featured Sridevi learning English to prove her family wrong? Tumhari Sulu comes as a refreshing take on the principle on which English Vinglish was based. Indian society pigeonholes married women as glorified maids, sealing her fate the minute she puts on her wedding ring or red sindoor. The statement, “Oh, I am just a housewife” has so many hidden meanings and when a movie like Tumhari Sulu explores the deeper sentiments behind this statement, one can not help but stop and think about the implications.

Is a house wife just a glorified maid or is there more to her? Does she have dreams, aspirations, desires and wishes that need to be fulfilled? This is where Sulu aka Sulochana played by Vidya Balan, as Tumhari Sulu starts. The youngest of two “well settled” and “career oriented” sisters, Sulu faces regular jabs and barbs from her elder siblings. Sulu is ‘Baranvi’ (12th class) fail, and her sisters never allow her to forget this. She is however, more or less is happily married and mother of a pubescent schoolboy. Sulu finds her mojo in on air contests, the kind which entices ‘housewives’ like her to participate. The prizes attract housewives with exciting offers of kitchen ware and varied household appliances.

Sulochana as the protagonist, portrays the everyday married woman. She is the ultimate fighter and even while she figures out her passion, she manages to balance her work life and family life with extreme ease. Vidya Balan is not just ‘Tumhari Sulu’, but ‘Hamari Sulu’ in every way possible! With her full belied laugh and heart warming innocence, Vidya as Sulu, does wonders on the silver screen. Wit and quirky anecdotes are part and parcel of Sulu’s character, making everyone fall in love with her right from the beginning.

Equally wonderful is Manav Kaul, who plays the role of Sulu’s husband. He wants to support Sulu but is conflicted with his own views  of what he expects an ideal married life to be. However, there is a silver lining for both Sulu and her husband, each getting a happily ever after at the end. It is not just the leads who add a touch of beauty to the movie, but the entire supporting cast. The whole radio station set up (the studio, the casual camaraderie) is spot on, as are the people with whom Sulu interacts: boss woman Maria (Dhupia,) and the slightly jealous producer (Maurya.)

Despite Tumhari Sulu having a rocky beginning, the second half is entertaining and holds your attention until the very end. However, while the over all feel is amazing, there are glaring holes which cannot be ignored. The husband’s insecurities are addressed too quickly and barring one lovely remake of Hawa Hawaii from Mr. India, the songs are superfluous and basic. Over all, Tumhari Sulu seems repetitive and the 140 minutes long movie could easily be reduced by 15 to 20 minutes.

The film, however, makes up for its flaws with continuous comic relief and relatable characters. I, for one, am glad a movie like this has been made at a time where the dark side of the moon is portrayed stronger than the bright side of the sun! Directed by Suresh Triveni, Tumhari Sulu also stars Neha Dhupia, Vijay Maurya and Malishka Mendonsa.

OMG! Ranbir Kapoor Sued By His Tenant!

Ranbir Kapoor Sued By His Tenant, Why Ranbir Kapoor sued by Pune tenant for Rs 50 lakh, Sanju actor Ranbir Kapoor in TROUBLE, Ranbir Kapoor Latest News, Mango Bollywood, Bollywood Celebrity Latest News, Ranbir's Sanju Box Office Collections, Bollywood Latest Updates 2018

The famous actor Ranbir Kapoor who is riding high with success, lands in trouble!

Amidst the success of Ranbir Kapoor’s latest film Sanju, the actor gets sued by his tenant for an amount of Rs. 50 lakhs.

According to a source, Ranbir Kapoor leased out his plush apartment in Trump Towers, located in Pune’s Kalyani Nagar, in October 2016. The actor got sued by the tenant for allegedly not honouring the terms of the rental agreement.

The tenant is Sheetal Suryawanshi, who had moved into the 6,094 square feets apartment after renting it on leave and license basis. According to the agreement,  the license fee was decided at Rs. 4 lakhs per month for the first 12 months and Rs. 4.20 lakhs for the next 12. Over and above Suryawanshi paid a deposit of Rs. 24 lakh.

The case is filed in the Pune civil court, where Suryawanshi sought damages to the tune of Rs 50.40 lakh and interest of Rs 1.08 lakh. She stated that her family suffered ‘severe inconvenience and hardships’ due to the sudden eviction. According to her,  11 months after she moved in, she was asked to vacate the flat. She eventually moved out by the end of 2017.

With regards to the case filed, Ranbir denied all allegations and filed his responses in the court. The actor stated that Suryawanshi was not asked to vacate the flat because he was moving in, reproducing a portion of the leave and license agreement. The clause in the agreement states that the lock in period would be of 12 months and that the licensee (Suryawanshi) cannot terminate it, before said period. The actor added plaintiff cannot unilaterally change, modify or interpret leave and license agreement to suit her convenience.

Sheetal also alleges she was ‘maliciously deceived‘ by Ranbir Kapoor into vacating the apartment. The file states that in January 2018, she sent a notice to Ranbir but did not get a response.

Going forward, the case is scheduled to be heard next on August 28.

Cast: Ishaan Khatter, Janhvi Kapoor, Ashutosh Rana, Shridhar Watsar, Ankit Bisht.

Director: Shashank Khaitan.

mangoBollywood Rating: 3.5/5.

This is not your regular Romeo and Juliet saga. Dhadak is a bold and beautiful love story which will make you stay glued to your seats with its striking cast and their incredible performances.

Directed by Shashank Khaitan and produced by Karan Johar, Dhadak is a remake of the super hit Marathi film Sairat. The most anticipated love saga of 2018 Dhadak, celebrates young love and the obstacles it brings along with the many shades of romance. Set in Udaipur, the story begins with young love blossoming in the midst of politics and a dominant class system. Two young lovers Madhukar (Ishaan) and Parthavi (Janhvi) are blooming in love! They fall head over heels for each other. However, the fact that they belong to different castes of society, becomes an obstacle in their epic love saga.

The lovers dare to go against societal norms and battle all odds for the sake of their love.

Dhadak tries to replicate Sairat’s essence however, it lacks in some aspects. The strength of the film lies in its blooming freshness and essence of first love with our newbies Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter nailing it with their charm. Ishaan Khatter’s energetic performance grabs your attention, while Janhvi Kapoor and her gorgeous personality will melt your heart. The roller coaster ride the love story portrays is what makes Dhadak a worthwhile watch.

The mesmerizing music of the film brings the story to life.  Ajay Atul pulls the right strings and touches tugs at your emotions, every single time!

Dhadak makes you laugh, smile, cry and tugs at your heartstrings with its breezy love story!
