As the country gears up to fight against the severely horrible case against of the 8 year old girl from Kashmir, our Bollywood celebrities have decided to take a stand. For the good, this time. As always and again, our stars keep voicing their opinions on what’s been going on in the world. This time, they have stood for something that has left us far more scarred than even the Nirbhaya Case. Here’s what they have had to say about the Asifa Unfairness.
1. Javed Akhtar
Who was Asifa ? She was an eight years old daughter of Bakerwals. Who are Bakerwals ? A nomad tribe who when spotted the Kargil intruders promptly informed the army .Who are the people who are trying to protect the rapists of this little girl . ? Now it is your turn to answer.

2. Priyanka Chopra
How many more children like baby Asifa will be sacrificed at the intersect of religion & politics? How many more children will have to suffer unimaginable crimes before we wake up? I’m disgusted. It’s time for swift action. We owe it to Asifa and to humanity. #justiceforAsifa.

A 8 year old is drugged, raped & murdered and another one is fighting for justice for herself and the death of her father in custody.
We have a choice either raise your voice or be a silent spectator.

When a horrific incident like this happens in our Country like this happens, everyone unites to fight for the right. Despite being part of an educated and supposedly progressive world, when things like this happen, harsh reality cheques are issued. Unfortunately, we don’t seem to want to cash them.
Sab Badhiya, The New Sui Dhaaga Song Is Out Finally! Listen Here
Sab Badhiya, the brand new promotional song from Sui Dhaaga, just dropped and from the looks of things, the song is a Varun Dhawan performance through and through! Apart from being a full blown peppy song, the four minute long video shows Dhawan arguing with the makers that to make this film better, there needs to be an upbeat number in the mix!
Sung by Sukhwinder Singh and composed by Varun Grover, Sab Badhiya has been composed by Anu Malik. The idea of this song is to show even though the world is full of problems, there is still a bright and happy side to the world of darkness! As long as you can dance to the tunes of life, you can do what you want, says this new Sui Dhaaga song! Listen to it here.
Shot the entire song in 8 hrs isilyaa abMauji ka mantra ab aap apnao! Milkar bolo #SabBadhiyaHai! Watch the song NOW! https://t.co/ny4VdPgTQL @AnushkaSharma | @yrf | #Sukhwinder Singh @varungrover @The_AnuMalik | @Sharatkatariya | #ManeeshSharma | #SuiDhaagaMadeInIndia
— Varun MAUJI Dhawan (@Varun_dvn) September 21, 2018
What makes this song so special is Unfortunately, Anushka was not a part of this song because she had a severe back problem and did not have it in her to perform on such an upbeat number!
Sui Dhaaga is the heartbreaking story of pride and self reliance. It tells the story of how one finds their roots in India and how pride is the central factor of every patriot. Directed by Sharat Katariya and produced under the banner of Yash Raj Films, Sui Dhaaga is scheduled to hit the silver screens on the 28th of September, 2018.
Batti Gul Meter Chalu Review And First Day Expectations
Cast: Shraddha Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Divyendu Sharma and Yami Gautami
Director: Shree Narayan Singh
mango Bollywood Rating; 3 stars on 5 stars
From the very beginning, Shree Narayan Singh has established himself as a director who brings causes to the silver screen. Just like with Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Singh works with the leads of Batti Gul Meter Chalu to tell the story of a village seeped in troubles with electricity.
Batti Gul Meter Chalu maps the journey of three friends (Shahid, Shraddha and Divyendu) and how each one has to make a life changing choice through the course of the film. What makes them so interesting individually is how diagonally different the three are. One is a thrifty lawyer (Shahid Kapoor,) the other is a business man who lives only by the rules (Divyendu Sharma,) while the third is an fashion designer (Shraddha Kapoor.)
The trio are the life of Garwal, a village in Uttarakhand, making everyone around them green with envy. Just like every story involving two guys and a girl, a love triangle is but inevitable. Both SK (Shahid Kapoor) and Sundar (Divyendu) love Lalita (Shraddha,) making matters complicated by each of them professing their love to her in over the top ways.
Things quickly turn ugly when Lalita has to make the tough choice between the two men in her life. In the midst of this confusing love triangle, Lalita’s electricity bill keeps getting inflating beyond expectation. The first half of this film seems tried and tested, with little or no importance given to the issue of inflated electricity bills. Singh builds up the love triangle to a point, only to resolve it by having one of the two men jumping into the Ganga (thank God!) While you are still trying to grasp with the terms of only one love story to deal with, the second half of the film jumps head on into the real issue (electricity and how inflated bills affect the common man.)
Singh has more than established himself as a man who deals with social causes. As leads, Shahid, Divyendu, Shraddha and Yami Gautam all do really well, making us want to connect with the story not just on a superficial level, but on a personal front as well. Watch Batti Gul Meter Chalu not because of the sappy love triangle, but because of the way people need to stand up and take notice of what goes on in the other parts of the world!
Batti Gul Meter Chalu: Reasons To Watch
Batti Gul Meter Chalu, starring Shahid Kapoor, Yami Gautam and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead roles, is all set to hit the silver screens tomorrow. Before it does, here is taking a look at why this film has such an important story and why it needs to be told at a time like this.
1. A story about friendship
Just like every movie with a social cause, the underlying motivation that drives the main leads of Batti Gul Meter Chalu is friendship. One of the main reasons Shahid Kapoor‘s character fights against an obviously corrupt government is to get his departed friend the much needed justice and this, is one of the main reasons one has to watch Batti Gul Meter Chalu tomorrow!
2. A story about your rights
Despite talking about friendship, there is a secondary cause addressed in Batti Gul Meter Chalu _ the long battle the ordinary man has been fighting for electricity. This Shraddha Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor starrer brings to the fore issues like inflated electricity bills and faulty electricity meters with hard hitting facts and no underlying layers of subtlety. A must watch to understand what really goes on in different parts of the world.
3. The stellar star cast
With Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor and Yami Gautam playing pivotal roles, Batti Gul Meter Chalu consists of a strong star cast. Each actor has been known for being outstanding in every character they play and with this movie, their talent as strong actors is easily identifiable.
Batti Gul Meter Chalu addresses one of the major concerns people are facing in our country and when the issue is brought forward to the silver screen, people always stand up and take notice. Do not forget to go and watch the film tomorrow and give us your feedback in the comments below!
Love Sonia Review And First Day Expectations
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
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!
