Bollywood Step Siblings And Their Families!

Published

on

Everything about the Indian film industry is strange and mysterious. Half siblings and the families behind them are part of this strange and alluring world. From the Khans to the Kapoors, every major Bollywood family is riddled with multiple marriages and multiple children. Today, we take a look at seven such families in the industry!

1. The Deols

The Deols have been synonymous with some amazing films since their entry into the Bollywood world. However, did you know, the Bobby Deol and Sunny Deol have half siblings? Dharmendra was married to Prakash Kaur before being married to Hema Malini! Through his second marriage, Dharmendra has two children, Esha Deol and Ahaana Deol. While the relationship between the siblings is not clear and rumour is, the brothers missed Esha Deol’s marriage. Methinks all is not well with the Deol siblings, right?

2. The Bhatts

Remember the Cinderella story, where the stepsisters are nothing short of evil witches? The Bhatt sisters, Alia and Pooja, remind us that this does not have to be the case. Mahesh Bhatt had two children from Soni Razdan – Alia Bhatt and Shaheen Bhatt and from his marriage to Kiran Bhatt, he had two children, Pooja Bhatt and Rahul Bhatt! The Bhatt siblings, despite being step, share a bond which is strong!

3. The Kapoor Khandan

Boney Kapoor is known for being an amazing actor and director. However, only a few knew about his children from his first marriage. Celebrated actor Arjun Kapoor and his sister Anshula are the product of Boney Kapoor and his first wife, Mona Shourie Kapoor. Jhanvi and Khushi are his children from his current wife, Sridevi. Unlike the Bhatts, this family does not have a happy merger. The two sets of siblings are rarely ever seen together and the bitterness seems to have gone to a point where Arjun and Boney Kapoor have no interaction with each other.

4. The Other Kapoor Family

Bollywood’s ultimate chocolate boy, Shahid Kapoor, has three step siblings, Ishaan, Ruhan and Sana, who are Pankaj Kapoor’s children from his previous marriage with Neelima Azeem. This family is a happy one but and according to sources, the siblings love each other with no differentiation whatsoever!

5. The Pataudi Family 

Saif Ali Khan has two children, Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan, from his first wife, Amrita Singh and Taimur Ali Khan from his current wife, Kareena Kapoor Khan. This is a truly happy family with Sara and Ibrahim helping Saif and Kareena by looking after little Taimur whenever they can. Rumour is, the older siblings have even changed Taimur’s diapers! This is a big large Indian family!

6. The Dutt Family  

Sanjay Dutt is infamous for a lot of things. However, a lot of people forget the amount of hard work he puts into keeping a family together and happy. Especially, one that has all the true trappings of a Bollywood love story gone wrong! Sanjay Dutt has a daughter, Trishala Dutt from a marriage to first wife, Richa Sharma. He also has two children, Iqra and Shahraan, with Maanyata! This family is always together and very happy giving us a picture of complete happiness at all times!

7. The Aamir Khan Family 

Aamir Khan may be Mr. Perfectionist on the silver screen. At home, however, not so much. He started working early on and this seems to have disentangled him from his children, Junaid and Ira,he had with first wife Reena. However, now with Azad Rao his son with current wife Kiran Rao Aamir is working on making things better. He is also working towards getting the two families back on track! Aaww!

Bollywood families have a flair for the dramatic life and this is a clear example of just that! One of the reasons we love Bollywood so much is the drama is not just reserved for the screens!

Love Sonia Review And First Day Expectations

Published

on

Love Sonia Review And First Day Expectations, Love Sonia Movie Review, Love Sonia Hindi Movie Review and Rating, Love Sonia Movie Public Talk, Love Sonia First Day Collections, Live Sonia Movie Box Office Collections, Love Sonia Bollywood Movie Review, Love Sonia Movie Talk, Mango Bollywood, Love Sonia Movie Audience Response,

Cast: Mrunal Thakur, Adil Hussain, Manoj Bajpayee, Richa Chadha, Freida Pinto, Rajkummar Rao, Demi Moore

Director: Tabrez Noorani

Mango Bollywood Rating: 3 stars on 5 stars

What is more haunting? A girl with no name lost in a city with a haunting dark side or a village with no identification except for being located 1,400 kms North of Mumbai? When you belong to such a non descriptive village, you get lost in the throngs of poverty, extortion, death, murder and prostitution.

Love Sonia, Tabrez Noorani’s extremely brave directorial, brings to the fore just these issues, addressing every one of them with an iron fist. The film tells the raw, unfiltered story of a teenage girl sold into the relentless and world of the flesh trade when her family cannot afford to make their ends meet.

Love Sonia is Tabrez Noorani’s brave directorial which makes you wonder what is more haunting, a girl with no name girl with no name lost in a city with a haunting dark side, or a village with no identification, except for being located 1,400 km., north of Mumbai?  The movie brings to the fore when you belong to such a non descriptivevillage, you get lost in the throngs of poverty, extortion, death, murder and prostitution. 

While the story seems to highlight the plight of the two sisters (the ones who form the crux of the story,) what hits you the hardest is not their fight against evil, but the anonymity of the entire situation. Without too much regard to the harsh realities of the flesh trade, Tabrez Noorani gives us direct access into what really goes on in the world of flesh world.

What makes this particular film so appealing is the cracked mirror viewpoint it represents. You could either look at the story (inspired by real life events of so many girls like Sonia) as a brilliantly told tale with minor flaws; or you could look at the story as an extremely flawed tale. As Sonia searches for her sister lost in the maze of Mumbai’s underworld, she discovers several women lost to the profession (Richa Chhada‘s and Frieda Pinto’s characters.)

This brings to light the fact that Love Sonia aims at highlighting the plight of not just one lost girl, but several girls with no future to their name. While Mrunal Thakur makes a flawless debut as Sonia in this film, the premise of the story is slightly lacking.

Despite having a hard hitting story, the movie fails to leave you with a provocative after thought. Instead of using an over whelming dose of fear to tell his tale, Noorani could have woven together multiple layers, giving us the idea that there is something bigger happening (which there actually is.) A story told over and over again, Love Sonia is fresh in the sense that it wants you to listen to the fear and voice your outrage with silent anger, rather than with momentary anger. Watch the film for the perfect mix of actors, story rendition and raw cinematography.

Manmarziyaan Review And First Day Expectations

Published

Manmarziyaan Review And First Day Expectations, Manmarziyaan Movie Review, Abhishek Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu Manmarziyaan Latest News, Manmarziyaan Hindi Movie Review and Rating, Manmarziyaan First Day Collections, Manmarziyaan Bollywood Movie Box Office Collections, Manmarziyaan Public Review, Manmarziyaan Latest Bollywood Movie Review, Mango Bollywood

Cast: Abhishek Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal

Director: Anurag Kashyap

mango Bollywood rating: 3.5 stars on 5 stars

Manmarziyaan can be termed as Anurag Kashyap’s first ever directorial that does not come filled with murder, angst and betrayal. A love story at its roots, this film establishes Kashyap as an extremely versatile and very connected to reality director.

Every love story in Bollywood centers around a love triangle, or that is what we have been taught to believe over the years. Anurag Kashyap being who he is, twists this tired and tested tale into a coming of age story, giving us an insight into love through the eyes of a millennial.

For love triangles to work, there are two people at the center with a silent, third party observer. In Manmarziyaan, Rumi (Taapsee Pannu) and Vicky (Vicky Kaushal) love the way we, as the young wild and free, love. One of them wants to settle down, while the other has no real intentions of going down the road of society expectations. No guesses on who falls in what category here, right?

Things seem fine for a while for the much in love couple, till the doors of the bedroom open to the public (the parents in this case.) While Vicky is lauded for being everything society expects him to be, Rumi is forced to stick to the straight road by her parents. Get married to Vicky or we will find a boy for you, tell Rumi’s very angry parents. Into the picture comes Abhishek Bachchan (Robbie.)

In an ideal world, Robbie would have been what every girl would have wanted. Respectful, down to earth and armed with the perfect job in hand, Robbie came with one thing not going for him. He was not Vicky and Rumi could not have that. Unfortunately for Rumi, this was just the strength Robbie played with and used to his advantage! Quite a complicated little bundle here, right?

The dialogue delivery is raw, real and even disturbing at times. The confrontation scene, where Rumi singles out Vicky and his disregard for marriage, makes you connect to Rumi all the more. What breaks one’s heart in this entire film is how Robbie realises he is only a bystander in the beginning and works his way into Rumi’s heart toward the second half. This part, more than any other scene through the film, tells us there is a strong chance of a happy ending in life if you talk through your problems and sort out issues head on, when they happen.

At the end of the day, while Manmarziyaan does not have murder and a Nawazuddin Siddiqui tied up together in a neat little bundle, it still is a Kashyap film in and out! Every frame has been shot beautifully, with the aesthetics playing out beautifully. As a comeback movie, Abhishek Bachchan could not have picked a better story, while the unique combination of Vicky Kaushal and Taapsee Pannu is quite refreshing. A definite must watch if you are looking for something new and different!

Love Sonia: Five Reasons You HAVE To Watch This Hard Hitting Film

Published

on

Love Sonia: Five Reasons You HAVE To Watch This Hard Hitting Film,Mango Bollywood,Love Sonia Movie Updates,Love Sonia Movie Latest News,Reasons to watch Love Sonia Movie,Why Love Sonia Is The Most Hard-Hitting,Love Sonia trailer is a hard hitting tale of human trafficking

When you watch a serious issue displayed boldly on the silver screen, do you have it in you to turn your eyes? No, right? That is exactly what happens when you watch the trailer of Love Sonia, the latest Rajkummar Rao offering, showing us the dark side of the world through the eyes of human traffickers. Here are five reasons you just have to watch this heart wrenching film when it hits the screens tomorrow.

1. Hollywood and Bollywood collide 

Directed by Tabrez Noorani, Love Sonia brings together two drastically different worlds together for a unique film. From Demi Moore to Richa Chaddha to Rajkummar Rao, this film boasts of having some truly brilliant stars to its name! Definitely worth the watch, right?

2. Sai Tamhankar gains ten kgs for the roal

Sai Tamhankar, a critically acclaimed Maharashtrian actress, put in a lot of effort in order to prep for her role in Love Sonia. To make her part seem all the more credible as a prostitute turned pimp, Tamhankar put on a solid ten kgs to seem convincing! If no other reason, this dedication is a major reason to watch the film!

3. The no holes barred script 

After Udta Punjab showed us the dark side of Punjab and the under belly of the drug world, Love Sonia brings to the fore the struggles of a family perpetually stuck in the throes of poverty. Ever single member of the cast does justice to their role, playing their part to perfection. The script is so raw, so true that it hits in all the places you need to pay attention.

4. Girls rescued during the shoot 

If the above reasons were not enough for you to go watch the film, then this one definitely should make you run to the theaters. During the making of Love Sonia, director Tabrez Noorani used to conduct random raids at suspected brothels in an attempt to rescue girls kept there in captivation. He would pose as a set unit man, conducting his research at brothels and then tip off the police. Through his effort, more than a dozen girls were rescued!

5. Mrunal Thakur went into depression post shoot 

There are some roles which take a long time to get over and there are others which just stay with you for the rest of your life. Mrunal Thakur, making her debut in Bollywood with such an intense story, went into severe depression for the longest time. The fact that she chose such a strongly emotional film to make her debut is commendable, to say the least.

Films like Love Sonia do not come by often and when they do, you definitely cannot miss the movie. Right from when you watch the trailer, you realise there is a Sonia in every girl wandering the streets and if that does not make you want go and help the little girl, then maybe, just maybe the film itself will. Do not forget to tell us what you think of this movie when you watch it in the theaters tomorrow!
