Bollywood Must Watch Horror Movies

Ever since Indian cinema came into inception, Bollywood has loved horror as a genre. Anushka Sharma’s Clean Slate Films gave us Pari, a movie which is definitely at par with Hollywood horror films. However, before one decides to give this movie the ultimate stamp of approval, here is a list of movies which were brilliantly executed.

1. Raat 

Raat sees a side of Revathi which was never seen before. One of the best films from Ram Gopal Varma, Raat is a supernatural thriller which revolves around Mini (Revathi) who gets possessed by the spirit of a dead kitten soon after her family moves into a new house. The way Raat creates the fear of silence and dark makes it the cult movie it is today.

2. 13B 

What happens when an entire family gets hooked on a real life television show? This is no melodramatic TV show either. Madhavan and his family move into a brand new apartment on the 13th floor and in a couple of days, they get obsessed with a show which depicts the past life and shows what happens in the future. An ensemble cast backed by a strong script ensures the entry of this movie into the list!

3. Raaz

Touted as Vikram Bhatt’s best movie, Raaz set the ball rolling for future horror films as well. In fact, this movie cemented Bipasha Basu’s career in Bollywood. While Bipasha plays the role of Sanjana, a wife possessed by a kitten’s ghost, actress Malini Mishra plays the role of the ghost. Even now, the scene of Bipasha in the black dress and Malini saying Sanjana in freaky whispering tones is still scary. This movie requires a place in this list without any doubt!

4. Bhoot 

Starring Urmila Matondkar, the original queen of Bollywood horror movies, this was perhaps one of the scariest films of its time. This film, sans any songs, had Urmila play a possessed wife in a haunted house as her husband Ajay Devgn tries to unravel the truth behind the revenge-seeking spirit. It was majorly Urmila’s eccentric act that made this film one of the scariest.

5. Vaastu Shastra 

If there is a Bollywood movie which perfectly sends chills down your spine sheerly with the music, then it Vaastu Shastra. This Sushmita Sen starrer revolves around a kid who makes friends with Manish and Jyothi. The twist in the tale? Manish and Jyothi do not exist!

6. Mahal 

Bollywood’s first tryst with horror, this movie still continues to haunt us even a decade after it released. Mesmerising music and a solid script make this movie stick strong even now. In fact, even with an absence of VFX, Mahal stood out scarily strong.

If you have no plans for this weekend, then this list of horror movies is enough to not want you to sleep alone at night for a long time!

Underrated Bollywood Movies From The Past

Published

Underrated Bollywood Movies From The Past,Underrated Bollywood Movies,Mango Bollywood,Must Watch Bollywood Movies of all Time,Best Bollywood Movies,6 Must Watch Bollywood Movies,6 Best Movies in Bollywood,Top 6 Bollywood Movies of all time,Superhit Bollywood Movies From Past

Be it big ticket Bollywood movies which become superhits or underrated movies which become instant failures, the world of Bollywood is a coin with two sides. While the ones with major star casts and drama are always remembered, it is always the smaller fish in the fry which are often forgotten. On a Friday like today, here’s taking a look at some of the best movies in Bollywood which are underrated!

1. Masaan

Released in the year 2015, Masaan follows two people dealing with different forms of death and eventually end up meeting. Richa Chadha’s character mourns the death of her boyfriend, while Vicky Kaushal’s character is part of a family who burns funeral pyres for a living. While both the stories are intense on their own, they bring together a beautiful story when they finally meet. A beautiful story which essentially brings to life the fact that misery loves company, Masaan was sorely underrated when it released.

2. Ankhon Dekhi

Directed by Rajat Kapoor and released in the year 2013, Ankhon Dekhi tells the story of a man who once has an “ah ha” moment and decides he will only believe that which he sees with his own eyes. Following the story of the patriarch of a middle class Delhi family, the movie talks about how even if you have lived life a certain way, there are certain moments when you should change the way you see the world. Ankhon Dekhi lacks the drama and intensity of a blockbuster, but is definitely a film for the ages.

3. Stanley Ka Dabba

Stanley Ka Dabba, a movie which will move even the Grinch of Christmas to tears, brings to life the heart wrenching story of a boy who yearns to eat lunch with his classmates. While on the one hand, the film brings to life the story of not just Stanley, Stanley Ka Dabba also talks of the mean principal who doesn’t let children enter the school unless they bring their own lunch boxes. Drawing parallels from two people virtually after the same thing, this particular Amol Gupte directorial saves the suspense to the very end!

4. Titli

Released in 2015, Titli tells the story of how two people are brought together in a weird combination of fate and who work together to change the course of their life. In a weird twist of sorts, Titli, the youngest member of a mafia family, is married off against his wish. However, as luck would have it, his wife, Neelu, is just as adamant as him to escape this lifestyle and together, the two work to create a story of their own! A beautiful tale of finding love through all adversity, Titli tells an inspiring story and unfortunately, not enough credit went its way.

5. Shaitan

An Anurag Kashyap directorial, Shaitan talks about what happens when you are rich and have too much time on your hands. Quite like Anurag Kashyap’s other films, this particular movie is also dark, gritty, chaotic and extremely realistic. Perhaps one of the reasons this movie did not get the recognition it deserves is because of how casually the whole concept of violence was portrayed! However, what works for Shaitan is, it tells a realistic story and is very to the point!

6. Margarita With A Straw

Bringing to life the story of a bisexual woman (played by Kalki Koechlin,) Margarita With A Straw talks about how society finally accepts love in all forms. A coming of age movie, the film’s story works because the protagonist rediscovers who she is as a person! Despite being so well, one of the things which work against this particular movie is, it has way too many elements in it, making it hard to focus on one particular point!

7. Dasvidaniya

A Shashant Shah directorial, Dasvidaniya answers a simple question: what would you do if you had only a few days left to live? With Vinay Pathak playing the role of a man with only 3 months to live, the movie talks about how he comes to term with the hand life dealt him. Making a list of everything he wants to do before he dies, Vinay Pathak plays the role to perfection. While the story may was told really well, what didn’t work for the film was the fact the story didn’t come with a neatly packaged perfect ending.

While not all films need to be told or made a certain way, these films proved, even with no mass produced drama, a good story always works. What’s your favourite underrated movie? Comment and let us know!

Why Cheat India Review And First Day Box Office Expectations

Published

on

Cast: Emraan Hashmi, Shreya Dhanwanthary

Director: Soumik Sen

Story

Why Cheat India tells the story of Rakesh Sharma (Emraan Hashmi,) who runs a business wherein he uses  loopholes in the Indian education system and scams people. How? By hiring bright boys from an underprivileged background and getting them to write exams for the rich and privileged. Sharma has a simple goal: to help improve the lives of those who don’t have enough to make ends meet by making money from those who can afford to pay for proxy writers. Based on the life of Sattu, a boy who falls prey to Sharma’s plans, Why Cheat India takes one on a gripping journey of how people without privilege lived their lives.

Review

Innocence and desperation are perhaps two of the most vulnerable traits people have and when exploited, there is a lot to be gained by the person exploiting the others. Emraan Hashmi’s Why Cheat India, draws parallels for this story from these situations, where opportunists like Rakesh know from where they can make the most money. A slimy businessman with his own set of morals, Rakesh plays both sides of the  law in a way which ensures he is safe and protected, no matter what.

A daunting and gripping tale, Why Cheat India is the story not of a hero, but an anti hero who brings to life the various levels of corruption and crime which exist in our education system. A movie about the ultimate mafia (who quite literally controls the future of people’s life) of education, this particular Soumik Sen directorial is a story which needed to be told. Based in the slightly more backward areas of India (Janpur, Kota and Jhansi, for example,) Rakesh’s scams are in use the most here because of the sheer amount of pressure there is on the students to become engineers, doctors or MBA graduates.

However, while the plot is unique and storytelling is to the point, there are a few things which don’t make sense. A glaring hole with regard to Sharma’s past life makes one question his intentions of setting up this business and Sattu’s blind adoration for Rakesh seems a bit far fetched. All in all, with some brilliant performances by all the leads, Sen’s Why Cheat India tells the story of a flawed system and makes one question the integrity of the education system in India.

The Best Of Sidharth Malhotra, On His Birthday

Published

The Best Of Sidharth Malhotra On His Birthday,Mango News,Happy Birthday Sidharth Malhotra,Sidharth Malhotra rings in birthday with Jacqueline Fernandez and Karan Johar,Bollywood celebs wish Sidharth Malhotra on his birthday

Sidharth Malhotra, one of the most talented and good looking actors in the industry, entered the world of Bollywood with a lot of talent and no godfather. While not a lot of people thought the man could make his presence felt for too long, the actor proved time and time again that he was here to stay. As the actor turns a year older, here’s taking a look at all the amazing movies he was a part of so far.

1. Student of the Year

Karan Johar quite literally pulled the rabbit out of the hat by introducing Sidharth Malhotra in this particular movie. With not one, but two star kids making their debut in this film, one wouldn’t have thought a new face could sustain the immense pressure, right? Wrong. Sidharth Malhotra held his own weight by playing a role where he brought to life the story of a man who wasn’t surrounded with luxury. Definitely a noteworthy beginning for a newbie in the industry!

2. Ek Villain

A romantic thriller and Sidharth Malhotra’s third film in Bollywood, the actor more than proved his worth in this particular movie. Not only did he gain appreciation for his role in the film from the loyal and growing audience, he also earned a soft spot in the hearts of the critics. A bold choice for one to make while still fresh in the industry, Sidharth played the role of a gangster who avenges the murder of the love of his life. As his third movie in Bollywood, Sidharth did true justice to this role.

3. Kapoor and Sons

Another brilliant performance Sidharth showed through his performance in this star studded film that he wasn’t a typecast actor. Playing the role of a son not so favoured by his parents, this particular movie saw Sidharth shine in a character which was otherwise hard to play. With the right elements of intensity, drama and creativity, Sidharth Malhotra brought to the screen all his talents in a glorious manner!

4. Hasee Toh Phasee

Unlike his previous films, Hasee Toh Phasee saw Sidharth Malhotra play a pivotal role all the way through the film. Appreciated for his well timed humour, his ability to switch between serious and comic roles in a second and for his dialogue delivery, Hasee Toh Phasee was Sidharth Malhotra all the way through! To make things better, his chemistry with Parineeti Chopra was on point and endearing, making us believe in happily ever afters despite all the twists and turns.

5. Aiyaary

Aiyaary saw Sidharth Malhotra move away from the yearning for love kind of roles he did in the past. Playing the role of an officer on the other side of the tracks, Aiyaary could be termed as Sidharth’s turning point. While the film did not do as well as expected, it was Sidharth’s acting and attention to script which made the film a good watch.

6. Ittefaq

Not many actors can do the switch between romantic comedies and a crazy killer as well as Sidharth Malhotra did. With Ittefaq, the two characters he played through the film were quite a treat to watch. Ittefaq was one the most intense films of which Sidharth was a part. Not only did the movie become the most critically acclaimed films of 2017, it was also mentioned as Sidharth Malhotra’s best performance to date! We certainly agree with that statement!

With so many interesting roles being played in such a short time, Sidharth Malhotra’s Bollywood journey is anything but ordinary. Here’s wishing for more such great performances from the actor. Happy birthday, Sidharth Malhotra!

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, Sonam Kapoor’s and Anil Kapoor’s next film, is easily the most awaited movie of the year and why not? With Sonam Kapoor and Anil Kapoor sharing the screen space for the first time in their career, everything about this movie is exciting and wait worthy. To hype up the excitement even more, the makers just dorpped the second song form the film titled Ishq Mitha.

After the intriguing trailer and the title track, this brand new song centers around Sonam Kapoor’s character and is all things adorable. A remake of the original song with the same name written by Bally Sagoo and Malkit Singh and released in the 1990s, the new version is quite a treat to watch. Listen to the song here!

Sung by Navraj Hans and Harshdeep Kaur with lyrics given by Gurpreet Saini, the makers of Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga have retained the original music given by Rockak Kohli. Beautiful and all things Sonam Kapoor, this song is a mixture of nostalgia mixed with a modern twist!
With all the little tit bits of information the makers have released about this movie so far, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga promises to be a love story with a unique twist to the tale. While Sonam Kapoor’s character tries finding love, Anil Kapoor plays the father who has one aim in life: to get his daughter married. Directed by first time director Shelly Chopra Dhar, the film also stars Rajkummar Rao and Juhi Chawla in key roles. Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is scheduled to hit the screens on the 1st of February this year!

Apna Time Aayega Gully Boy First Song Out,Mango Bollywood,Apna Time Aayega Movie,Apna Time Aayega Movie Latest News,Apna Time Aayega Movie Songs,Apna Time Aayega Songs,Apna Time Aayega Gully Boy Song

After bowling over everyone with the brilliant rapping skills in the recently dropped trailer of Gully Boy, the makers of the film just dropped their first song, Apna Time Aayega! Fitting perfectly into the role of a rapper to the tee, Gully Boy sees Ranveer Singh play the role of Divine to perfection.

With lyrics given by none other than the epic rapper Divine, the title track of this film borrows the theme from Divine’s recent song, Teesri Manzil. The two and half minute long song shows one scenes that haven’t been shown in the trailer yet, with most of the parts showing what to expect from Alia Bhatt’s and Ranveer Singh’s characters. Not only does the song show the various stages of Ranveer’s growth as a rapper, it also shows how Ranveer’s character is taught about the kind of traps to avoid by his mentor! Listen to the song here!

From showing us how Ranveer’s character was attracted to the life of crime since he was a child to giving us an insight into his childhood, the brand new song is quite a trip down Divine’s childhood. To make matters interesting, the song also shows us how Divine’s life changes the moment Kalki’s character enters his life, giving Ranveer’s character the push toward earning money and fame!

Speaking about the film and his role in the film, Ranveer said, “When somebody told me about the script of Gully Boy, I told them that it is my film. If any other actor would have been a part of this film instead of me then I would have got burnt with jealousy. I was born to do Gully Boy and I knew only I can pull off this character.”

Directed by Zoya Akhtar with Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt and Kalki Koechlin playing the lead roles in Gully Boy, this Zoya Akhtar directorial focuses on the life of Divine and other popular Mumbai rappers. The film is scheduled to hit the screens on the 14th of February, this year!
