Dil Juunglee Cast: Tapsee Pannu, Saqib Saleem, Nidhi Singh
Dil Juunglee Director: Aleya Sen
Dil Juungle mango Bollywood Rating: 2 on 5 stars
Just like every love story, Dil Juunglee also starts off with a girl (Taapsee) running like the wind is chasing her. Bites of brinjal sandwhiches flying around, a love sick boy (Saqib) waitng with the runaway car and an elopment is what forms the beginning of this movie.
A diamond ring at the end of the chase and a flying car into the river marks the end of this very cheesy episode. A wandering into the woods after a narrow escape makes Taapsee realise that her entire love life has been a lie.
Sumeet Uppal (Saqib Saleem) is hopelessly aquaphobic. The female lead, Koroli Nair (Taapsee Pannu), who teaches spoken English to the former in order to prepare him for his entry into Mumbai filmdom, keeps coming within inches of being drowned. However when the love story of the two plays out and wanders off in no particular direction, through different countries one might add, the movie seems to barely stay afloat.
Cliches, when done well, have always worked for Bollywood. Rich girls want love. Poor guys want love, fame and money. What happens when the two come together? Nothing but a tragic love story. The only thing that keeps Dil Juunglee as a movie going is the actors who have done a fairly decent job despite the poorly written script.
Dil Junglee is an age old story, retold with a hundred stereotypes, none of which helps the movie. It is only Taapsee’s charming presence and Saqib’s earthiness that keep us entertained through the 2 odd hours. In fact, almost all the actors from Saqib’s mom, his friend, Taapsee’s friend to his fiancée, make the film bearable. All in all, this movie is a hit and miss at best. Watch it at your own risk!
Race 3 Review And First Day Box Office Predictions
Director: Remo D’Souza
Cast: Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Saquib Saleem, Jacqueline Fernandez and Daisy Shah
Stars: 3 out of 5
Race 3, the highly anticipated Salman Khan Eid release, finally hit the screens today and by the looks of things, there are a lot of mixed reactions to the film. The film begins with a build up of sorts to Salman Khan’s character (Sikander.)
Anil Kapoor plays the head of the Singh family, who is being threatened and needs someone to make the problem go away as soon as possible. Enter Sikander: the family’s bodyguard and saviour. However, while the plot seems to be leaning in Sikander’s favour, he is nowhere to be found!
Sikander’s entry into the scene is very similar to his entrance in the trailer. When he knows his employees are in danger, he barges into the mix wielding guns and blazing eyes. While Salman Khan’s entry is exactly what one expects, what sets the ball rolling is Bobby Deol’s spectacular presence, after an absence of almost half a decade in the field of cinemas.
Every character in this high energy film is given a large amount of screen time. The first 30 minutes of Race 3 is dedicated to establishing the individual characters. After giving us a view of the family dynamics of the individual characters of the Singh family, the love story of Jacqueline Fernandez’s (Jessica) character and Salman Khan’s character unfolds.
The two met on an eventful day in Beijing a couple of years ago, with Sikander sporting a French beard to show the passage of time from then to the current day in the film. The couple’s love story unfolds over a heavy duty song titled I Found Love. While one would think this is the be all and the end all for the two love birds, Jessica goes missing and Sikander returns home to forget about love and focuses on work.
One would have thought a Race franchise would bring us entertainment, action and cars. However, unlike the first two parts of the film, this film falls rather flat. With almost no comic relief and terrible acting, the film just lacks to hit the right spots. The only saving grace seems to be Bobby Deol (Yash) who brings his years of experience and acting finesse to the story. Watch Race 3 if you have nothing else to do this weekend!
Dhadak Trailer Is Out: Watch It Here And Now!
The trailer for Dhadak, the Bollywood remake of the Marathi National Award Winner Sairat, just dropped and it breathes love, heartbreak and betrayal. Marking the debut of Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor in the lead roles, Dhadak tells the story of inter caste love.
— Karan Johar (@karanjohar) June 11, 2018
The trailer starts with some hints of nostalgia. Remember Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and how Shah Rukh Khan asks Rani Mukherji to sing a song? The trailer starts off with a similar story. Janhvi Kapoor asks Ishaan Khatter to sing, not a Hindi song, but an English song! You can tell from the very word go that Janhavi’s character is the dominant one, the one taking the lead.
While the beginning is rosy and filled with strong splashes of young love, the trailer has hints of darkness when the parents discover their forbidden love. The trailer shows us that one moment where you know the two are definitely in love, making you fall in love with not just the story, but the actors themselves! Watch the trailer of Dhadak here!
Every film is incomplete unless we get a complete introduction into the different characters in the film. Dhadak draws attention to the fact like how the guy cannot believe this girl is in love with him. The boy wants to prove to the girl he values her and from then onwards, despite defining the relationship, the inevitable ups and downs begin.
Dhadak weaves a true story with brilliant acting and subtle references. Shot in scenic locations with brilliant music, this film gives one a feeling that true love is not a myth and has to be worked on to succeed! Directed by Shashank Maitan and produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, Dhadak is scheduled to hit the screens on 20 July, 2018.
Kaala Film Review And Expected Box Office Collections
Cast: Rajnikanth, Huma Qureshi, Easwari Rao, Nana Patekar, Pankaj Tripathi, Anjali Patil
Director: Pa. Ranjith
mango Bollywood rating: 3.5 stars
When Rajnikanth and a film are associated together, one expects nothing short of a blockbuster. That being said, his next film, Kaala, is anything but a typical Rajnikanth film. From the very word go, Pa Ranjith makes this fact crystal clear. Just like the teaser, Kaala opens to Rajnikanth’s character playing in the Dharavi slums, claiming his dominance over the area.
With Nana Patekar’s dry wit and Huma Quereshi’s flawless acting, Kaala makes for a film with true meaning. Nana Patekar plays the oppressive bad guy, while Rajnikanth and his brood of wronged people fight back everytime they can. Not only that, the brood does not look at Rajnikanth as the ultimate superhero. They mock him and playfully antagonize whenever possible.
This is not the only significant aspect of the film. A bilingual film like this deserves every bit of credit and adulation it gets. What makes Kaala stick out all the more is the fact that women are no longer seen as the week and submissive sector of society. What is perhaps one of the most powerful aspects of this film is the point when the police remove a woman’s pants in order to shame her.
What happens next is usually along the lines of submission or defeat. However, this film is just the opposite. When the police pull down her pants, the woman picks up a lathi and charges straight at the men. She is claiming her right to occupy a space in a protest and not let anyone use her gender against her wishes. Pa Ranjith’s Kaala is loaded on symbolism, with the basic underlying principle being the defeat of the bad guy by the oppressed and repressed good guy.
Unlike other films about gangsters and mobsters, this film is about revolution. With such a heavy base, one would expect the director to deviate from the plot a tad bit. However, like a breath of fresh air, Pa Ranjith sticks true to the tale throughout the film. Watch the film not for Rajnikanth, but for Pa Ranjith!
This exotic lehenga of Bebo from Veere Di Wedding is 25 years old!
As soon as the stills of the bridal look of Kareena Kapoor Khan, aka Bebo, from the quirky “not a” chick flick Veere Di Wedding, were released over the internet, they went viral. The vintage lehenga of Bebo in the film Veere Di Wedding happens to be 25 years old as revealed by the designer, Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla.
Here’s taking a look at Bebo’s exquisite wedding lehenga from Veere Di Wedding!
The pretty lehenga was carried gracefully by Bebo! It is in an off shoulder dress, embellished with vintage embroidery! The yellow coloured lehenga is designed with a cascade of pearls. Well, the credit goes to the designer, Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla.
The designer shared a story on his Instagram account explaining,
Veere’s wedding garment is actually a vintage garment of Abu Sandeep. It’s something that we made 25 years ago. It was lying in our coffers…Rhea came to the factory and we started digging out a whole trunk and taking out old pieces. So then, we just reinvented it. The skirt remains the same. The blouse remains pretty much the same. Of course, it was altered to Kareena’s size. Then we created a dupatta and just modernised it slightly. At the wedding time (in the movie), everybody is in AJSK vintage, which is great fun.
Fashion is all about revamping the existing outfits! Isn’t it?
This magnificent wedding attire is now officially every girl’s favourite!
Veere Di Wedding Review: A Film With Happy Endings Sans The Dark Beginnings
Cast: Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Shikha Talsania, Swara Bhaskar
Director: Shashanka Ghosh
Remember Lipstick Under My Burkha, a film which displayed female angst and left you with an uncomfortable sense feeling towards the end? Shashanka Ghosh’s Veere Di Wedding addresses the same issues, albiet the angst and filled with sass!
Four girls, on a journey of self discovery, go through all the ups and downs of every day life and expectations. Throw in a very surprising gay couple into the mix and Veere Di Wedding turns into a modern day film about wanting acceptance. Shashanka weaves a very typical story with a lot of sass and jazz. Fabulously dressed women, quips and tricks thrown around, Veere Di Wedding is the modern day retelling of Lipstick Under My Burkha!
Despite its scrambling, unfocused plot and some not-so-great acting, Veere Di Wedding is propped up by its moments. The casual, understated Andaz Apna Apna reference; or the stereotypical Delhi wedding that nonetheless calls it like it is; or even the drunken banter between friends in their late 20s when one of them is about to get married. Apart from the good intentions mentioned earlier, it’s moments you’ll encounter in these situations that make the film breezy.
Touted to be not a “chick flick,” what makes this film work is the fact that it shows women bonding over things that are not clothes, make up and let us not forget, marriage (we live in a patriarchal society were women are expected to fret about these things.) Though shoddily written, Veere Di Wedding drives home a very strong point. Women are slowly coming into their own and after a point, societal expectations are just not worth the effort! Watch Veere Di Wedding for the story telling, the songs and the brilliant acting by the four women in the lead roles !
