Bollywood Movies That Perfectly Describe Our Generation,Bollywood Film News,2018 Latest Bollywood News,Upcoming Bollywood Movies 2018,Mango Bollywood,7 Bollywood Movies Describe Our Generation, List Of Bollywood Movies Perfectly Define Our Generation,Seven Bollywood Movies Perfectly Describe Our Generation,Bollywood Movies Perfectly Characterize Our Generation,7 Bollywood Films Perfectly Identify Our Generation, 7 Bollywood Films Perfectly Describe Our Generation

The world of cinema has taught us a lot of things. From the kind of life we want to lead with our friends to the kind of boyfriends we want, the movies of our generation have taught us a lot. When I say classics, I do not necessarily mean movies of the year gone by but I mean movies that have had a great impact on us. Today, I’d like to talk about some of these movies which have always been special to me.

1. Queen 

Setting an example for all of us heart broken girls, Rani (Kangana Ranaut) shows us that you do not have to sit and sob yourself into a stupor when you go through a breakup. She took off by herself and went on her honeymoon alone! Who doesn’t want to go for a solo Paris trip? I definitely want to!

2. Wake Up Sid 

Rich, spoilt and a total brat who is thoroughly clueless about his life. That’s who Sid Mehra was in Wake Up Sid. Sound familiar? Yeah. I know what you’re thinking. We all knew people like that. Probably were people like that. Definitely, a movie that lasts a lifetime. In fact, I think I’m going to watch it again!

3. Zindagi Na Milegi Dubara

This movie made me create my own bachelorette bucket list with my best friends. I won’t do the badass things Farhan Akhtar, Hrithik Roshan and Abhay Deol did, but sky diving and a Spain road trip is on the list for sure! A movie worth all the memories and adult life yearning for sure!

4. Yeh Jawaaani Hai Deewani 

Who hasn’t had that one love they hold on to for years to come? My first ex was someone who I did a lot of things for the first time with. I also had my first beer with my ex the way Deepika drinks for the first time with Ranbir in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. There are so many parts of this movie that seem so familiar with my life. Unfortunately, unlike Deepika, I didn’t end up with the first guy I loved. Oh well. That’s why movies like this are the forever kind I guess.

5. Udaan

This coming of age drama movie happens to be roughly based on the real life of Anurag Kashyap. Rajat Barmecha’s protagonist in the movie, Rohan, deals with his abusive and alcoholic father. On the side, he also works hard to achieve his dreams of becoming a writer. This is a beautiful film whose music as well as lyrics is pure magic.

6. Dil Dhadakne Do

The film is about a pretentiously happy couple and their children. The daughter, unhappy with her married life, can’t file a divorce because the move might not be accepted in the society. While the son, who desires to become a pilot, unwillingly has to join the family business to continue the legacy. I guess I like this movie because my family is kind of like this. Okay no. I lied. It’s not.

7. Udta Punjab 

This controversial film was based on the drug problem of Punjab and how it affects thousands of youth. With its nuanced performances, the film succinctly highlights everything that can go wrong with you if you let loose. But also, don’t become a total prude. Live your life a little.

So clearly I’m super biased about the movies I’ve talked about today. Vote and tell me which one you would watch over and over again, maybe?

Hema Malini And Her Best Performances, Bollywood Actress Hema Malani Songs, Hema Malini Top Dance Songs, Mango Bollywood, Hema Malini Birthday Special, Bollywood Dream Girl Hema Malini Latest News, Most Iconic Roles of Hema Malini

Hema Malini, the one and only Dream Girl, turns a year older and wiser today and as the country celebrates the lady who stole Dharmendra’s heart, here is looking at some of her best performances to date!

1. Basanti

Perhaps one of the most iconic roles played by this South Indian beauty, the character of Basanti became an instant hit when Sholay hit the silver screens! The right mixture of drama, quirk and fun, this particular role was responsible for propelling Hema Malini into the front lines of the extremely competitive industry that is Bollywood! Incidentally, this role is also considered to be one of the best performances by Hema Malini to date!

2. Geeta

A mixture of drama and comedy, Geeta from Seeta Aur Geeta was definitely one of the most iconic roles ever played by Hema Malini! Incidentally, this was also the first time an actress from Bollywood attempted to play a double role and boy, did she kill it with her brilliant performance! So amazing was her job in this film that no one till date has been able to match her acting skills in this movie!

3. Aarti 

Hema Malini’s role as Aarti in this particular film written by Gulzar (Kinara) won her several accolades by both critics and fans. Giving a strikingly memorable performance by playing the role of a visually impaired dancer, Hema Malini as the simple village girl was a character which resonated with lots of people. In fact, her character in this film was quite a contrast as opposed to her performance in the previous Gulzar film (Khushboo.)

4. Pooja Malhotra

How amazing do Hema Malini and Amitabh Bachchan look together? The film Baghban reiterated just that fact when she played the role of Pooja Malhotra in this particular family drama. Not only did she play the role of a mother really well, her acting was so brilliant in this film, it brought tears to one’s eyes even after watching the movie for the tenth time! Hands down one of the best performances by Hema Malini so far!

5. Meerabai 

In yet another amazing collaboration between Gulzar and Hema Malini, the film Meera brought to the fore the story of Meerabai! This particular Gulzar film talked about the Rajput code of conduct and addressed Meera’s personal conflicts during a trying time. Hema Malini’s performances as Meerabai was riveting and captivating to the point it made one empathize with Meera’s character like never before! Truly brilliant, this film showed Hema Malini’s acting skills in a new light!

6. Champabai 

Dream Girl, Hema Malini’s iconic role in the film Champabai, was perhaps her ticket to fame. What is extremely surprising about this film is she played not one, but five different characters with flawless ease and perfection. Interestingly, this was also the movie that brought to the fore the budding romance between her and Dharmendra! So great was her acting in this movie, she was given the official moniker of Dream Girl!

As this doe eyed beauty from the land of South turns 70 today, it is only befitting to wish her a very happy birthday by remembering some of her iconic roles! What is your favourite role to date? Comment and let us know!

Vashmalle, the first song from Yash Raj Films’ highly anticipated film, Thugs of Hindostan, just dropped. From the looks of things, this song is just as exciting as the trailer. One of the most exciting movies releasing next year, this particular film has a lot of things going for it, a factor made all the more enticing with this song. From the script to the cast, everything about this movie is keeping people gripped to the edge of their seat with bated breaths.

The just dropped song, titled Vashmalle, has been sung by the highly talented singer duo of Ajay and Atul, with lyrics given by Amitabh Bhattacharya and choreography by the brilliant dancer, Prabhudeva! While the song is foot tapping, what makes it all the more special is the fact it sees Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan come together on the silver screen for the first time ever! Listen to the song here and NOW.

With a setting surrounding the theme of friendship and camaraderie, the song is a true joy fest through and through. Quite like the trailer, the first song reminds one of the intense fight scenes between Jack Sparrow and Captain Barbossa from the film Pirates of the Caribbean! This particular Yash Raj Films production has an impressive cast to its name. Apart from Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan, Thugs of Hindostan also stars Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Sheikh in pivotal roles.

“It is amazing that we could write a suitable moment in the film that sees these two icons of Indian cinema shake a leg with each other and the song will stand out because of their infectious energy and camaraderie. The song presents Mr. Bachchan and Aamir Khan in the mood to celebrate. I have to reveal that the sequence will show them getting drunk during the celebrations and then breaking out to dance on this high energy number. It is a priceless moment that we have captured in Thugs of Hindostan,” director Vijay Krishna Acharya said while talking about the film previously. Thugs of Hindostan is scheduled to hit the screens sometime next year, so stay tuned for the release date!

Akshay Kumar Lesser Known And Interesting Facts,Unknown Facts About Akshay Kumar,Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar qualities, 7 Most Interesting facts about Khiladi of Bollywood, Mango Bollywood, Akshay Kumar Real Name,Akshay Kumar Cop Movies,Why did Akshay take up Canadian citizenship,Bollywood Khiladi Akshay Kumar Cop Movies

Akshay Kumar, the original Khiladi of Bollywood, is or rather was, quite the player! Before he met and fell in love with Twinkle Khanna, the man was a very different person. From being a very adorably notorious child to being one of the most good looking hunks in Bollywood, Akshay Kumar has done and been through a lot in life. Check out these unknown facts about the Khiladi of Bollywood here!

1. The real name 

Did you know Akshay Kumar’s birth name was not really the name he goes by now? When he was born, he was named Rajiv Hari Om Bhatia and only changed his name when he entered the Bollywood industry. In fact, people close to him still call him Raju and not Akshay!

2. Won a Filmfare Award only TWICE 

While all the other actors around him won more than one award for the best actor, Akshay Kumar has only won the Filmfare Award for the Best Actor twice in his career. The first time was for his brilliant performance as the Best Actor in a Negative Role in Ajnabee and the second time was for his amazing performance as the Best Actor in a Comic Role in Garam Masala.

3. The name Khiladi was NOT an accident 

While Akshay Kumar’s competition were called King Khan and Badshah, the name Khiladi did not come to this particular dude by accident. It was only after he worked in eight films (Khiladi. Main Khiladi Tu Anari, Sabse Bada Khiladi, Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi, International Khiladi, Mr. and Mrs. Khiladi, Khiladi 420 and Khiladi 786) with the name in the title did it stick to him and become his pseudonym of sorts!

4. Stole watches for fun 

While a lot of people have pet peeves, not many are open about their trysts with the law. Akshay Kumar, on the other hand, is someone who just does not care. The man has admitted to stealing watches from shopping malls when he was younger just to get the kick out of stealing things and getting away with the crime! Sticky fingers much?

5. Not an Indian citizen 

Just when you thought Akshay Kumar’s life could not get more interesting, it did. The Khiladi of Bollywood got himself a Canadian citizenship. However, with the Indian law being the way it is, he could not hold more than one citizenship at a time. Breaking the hearts of his Indian fans with one swift blow, he let go of the citizenship of the country he was born in and is now a full time citizen of Canada.

6. Played the same named character 8 times

If you think names like Raj and Vijay were only associated with characters played by Amitabh Bachchan or Shah Rukh Khan, think again! Did you know Akshay Kumar has played characters with the name Vijay 8 times and the name Raj 7 times on the silver screen? Who would have thought, right?

7. He played the role of a cop 13 times

Although Akshay Kumar has been typecast as the ultimate lover boy on screen, his real talent as an actor lies in the characters he played as a cop! Just like his on screen dad Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar has played this particular character over ten times in films like Kayda Kanoon, Mohra, Main Khiladi Tu Anari, Paandav, Sabse Bada Khiladi, Tu Chor Main Sipahi, Insaaf, Daava, Tarazu, Angaaray, Meri Biwi Ka Jawab Nahi, Khakee, Police Force: An Inside Story and Aan: Men at Work.

Akshay Kumar is quite the character and more than certainly stands apart from the other contemporaries of Bollywood. If you think we missed out on any facts about Akshay Kumar, comment and let us know!

Kishore Kumar And A Memory That Lives Through Music

Published

on

Kishore Kumar And A Memory That Lives Through Music, Musical Journey with Kishore Kumar, Hits of Kishore Kumar, Mango Bollywood, Bollywood Evergreen Songs, Remembering Kishore Kumar with his melodious songs, Most amazing songs by Kishore Da, Top 10 Songs of Legendary Singer Kishore Kumar,

Kishore Kumar lef the world on 13th October 1987, marking it as a sad day in the history of Bollywood and music. A day that took away one of the most enigmatic and beautiful singers, 13th October was labelled as the end of an era. When Kishore Kumar passed away, India lost a true gem, making fans all over realise that if music had a name, the name would be Kishore Da. Known for his voice filled with feelings, it is only befitting that one pays tribute to this great man through the melodious music he left behind. As I sit back on this nostalgic Sunday and think of the loss of a singer who touched not only his generation, but several ones after, I would like to leave you with these songs.

1. Yeh Shaam Mastani (Kati Patang, 1971) 

Yeah, today’s evening is going to be a beautiful one, but really, remembering the death of this great man is going to put a damper on a beautiful Sunday. If only Kishore Da were still alive, every evening would be a wonderful and memorable one, with new songs and melodies to keep the bad dreams at bay!

2. Ek Ladki Bheegi Bhaagi Si (Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi, 1958)

Hands down one of the most amazing songs by Kishore Kumar, this song has been playing on my mind since the time I woke up this morning! Perhaps the best kind of tribute one can play to Kishore Kumar, either on a rainy day or a sunny day!

3. Dil Kya Kare (Julie, 1975) 

Seriously, Dil Kya Kare when you lose someone who has been such an indirect and close part of your life? Nothing more than listen to Kishore Kumar’s music, right? On a side note, every time I break up with a dude (happens more number of times than you can think of,) this song is my go to heart fixer!

4. Maana Janab Ne Pukara Nahin (Paying Guest, 1975) 

This song is feels personified. With Kishore Da in his complete element in Maana Janab Ne Pukara Nahin is a Kishore Da song through and through. The song is a perfect description of love that is not entirely two sided and is perhaps the most beautiful ode to being okay with the bad situations as any!

5. Roop Tera Mastana (Aradhana, 1975) 

How many times a day have you listened to this song and hummed it over and over? Come on, you know you love this song as much as we do!  Do not cat call pretty girls with this song. Bad idea! You’ll land up in prison and that is never good for anyone, right?

6. Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas (Blackmail, 1973) 

Kishore Da, you may have left the world, but you are always going to be close to our heart. No matter what. Even more so through this song. P.S., if you were ever in the need of a quick fix with the love of your life, this song is the ultimate problem fixer! Trust me, a lot of people I know have used it and it has worked wonders every single time.

7. Mere Sapno Ki Rani Kab Aayegi Tu (Aradhana, 1969)

Putting into words what every man wants, this song is the perfect ode to finding true love and happily ever afters. Interestingly, in recent times, the songs from Dilwale Dulhaniye Le Jayenge are the only ones that comes close to this beauty! However, Kishore Kumar is the true original genius when it comes to romantic music, right? 

As the country mourns the death of a man who would have been 80 if fate had not ended his life early, I am going to kick back, relax and play these songs all day with a cup of hot, strong tea! What is your favourite Kishore Kumar song? Comment and let us know!
