8 May represents a special day in everyone’s hearts all over the world. It is the one day you dedicate to your mothers and give her all the love you want her to have. While Mother’s Day happens to fall on a Tuesday this year, one of the ways you could spend time with her is with these list of truly beautiful movies. Check out the list here!

1. Mother India

Mother India is the ultimate tribute to mothers all over the world. This old classic shows the immense dedication of a woman for her husband and family. She makes sacrifices and suffers hardships for her children. Even after losing her husband, she doesn’t lose hope and works to make an ancient land Mother India. The character was beautifully portrayed by the legendary actress, Nargis.

2. Dil Hai Tumhaara

While this movie may not have been the box office hit it was supposed to be, it broke all records by portraying a truly beautiful relationship. That of a mother and her child. While the box office didn’t love the film, the critics definitely did. In fact, Preity Zinta was even nominated for the Best Actress Award for her role in the film.

3. English Vinglish

If you love your mum, you will automatically fall in love with English Vinglish! One and a half decades on, Sridevi has made a return in debutant director Gauri Shinde’s endearing comedy drama about a middle aged Indian woman whose life is transformed by a fateful decision she makes while on a one month visit to the US. A warm hearted film dedicated to all mothers, English Vinglish commendably weighs against many types of discrimination, including, but not restricted to, ones that stem from one’s linguistic choices and facility. This movie about a woman who decides to show her husband and daughter that she’s better than they think and the perils of taking the familiar for granted. A must watch with your mum!

4. Taare Zameen Par

Aamir Khan’s Taare Zameen Par touches all the right spots because of all the different topics the film touches upon. From the mother and son relationship to the son’s growth as an independent individual, Taare Zameen Par gives you feels which make even the coldest of hearts cry.

5. Mom 

What happens when a daughter is attacked and left presumed dead? A mother fights for her rights, despite knowing she is going to be in heaps of trouble. Mom does exactly that and more. With Sridevi playing the angered mother, the film shows the fight between right and wrong, along with the path taken to achieve that right. Watch if you forget just how much your mother does for you.

On this very special day, here’s giving your mother the chance to kick back and chill. Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful women out there!

Bollywood Stars Who Disappeared From The Spotlight

Published

Bollywood Stars Who Disappeared From The Spotlight, Famous Stars Who Completely Disappeared, Actors Who Disappeared After Hit Movies, Bollywood popular actresses who went missing, Top Stars of Indian Cinema, Bollywood Actresses Latet News, Mango Bollywood

The world of Bollywood is a strange one. There are celebrities who rise to fame and stay on top and then there are others who fail despite tasting success. While at one point, they were adored and fawned over, these very stars are now forgotten and have disappeared from the spotlight. Remember Laila Khan? Debuting opposite Rakesh Khanna with Wafa in the year 2008, the actress disappeared from Mumbai shortly after the miserable failure of her grand debut. What makes matters worse, shortly after Laila moved from Mumbai, she was found dead. Her story is just one of the many among those whose lives were either cut short or who disappeared without a trace of any sorts. Check out the list here!

1. Parveen Babi

Known for her amazing performances in not one, but a host of films, Parveen Babi was perhaps one of the most famous actresses of her time. From breaking all conventional barriers by sporting bikinis, to featuring on the cover of the Time magazines, Parveen Babi was always a class act. However, despite all the success surrounding her life, she went off the radar of the film industry in the mid eighties. For a little over a decade, no one knew where she was and when she eventually returned in the year 1989, she was a whole new person. Suffering from schizophrenia, Parveen Babi was convinced everyone she knew was out to get her. Ostracising herself, Babi died a lonely death in her apartment in the year 2005.

2. Raj Kiran

A favourite of the mid range Bollywood directors, Raj Kiran had quite a few successful films (Kagaz Ki Nao, Hip Hip Hurray and Arth) to his name. Despite never making it to the big leagues, Raj Kiran was considered to be quite a popular actor during the ’80s. However, despite being at the peak of his career, one of the major things which went against him was his addiction to alcohol. After a point, Raj’s obsession with alcohol was so high, he got into regular brawls and his reputation started getting affected. Producers and directors stopped wanting to do films with him. He disappeared so quickly, the rumour mill was even saying the actor passed away! There was absolutely no news of him till almost 2011! It was only after Rishi Kapoor found him at an asylum did people stop believing the worst.

3. Bharat Bhushan

One of Bollywood’s biggest stars during the 1940s, Bharat Bhushan had a lot going for him. Known for being a part of several mythological films, Bharat Bhushan rose to fame with Baiju Bawra in the year 1952. Ruling the industry for almost 30 years, Bhushan was known for giving some truly brilliant performances in his career. Unfortunately, one of the main things which went against him was the affair he had with Meena Kumari, a move which almost destroyed not just his name, but his career as well. Slowly fading from the industry, the actor started losing out on offers and as a result, the money also stopped coming. Not known for being a saver, Bharat Bhushan lost all his savings and during the last few days of his life, worked as a watchman at a film studio. The actor breathed his last in the year 1992.

4. Mamta Kulkarni

During the 1990s, Mamta Kulkarni was always in the headlines. From starring topless on the cover of a magazine, to making a sensational debut (Tirangaa in 1993,) Mamta was all over the newspapers for everything she did or said. Playing several major roles opposite stars like Akshay Kumar, Govinda, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Anil Kapoor, Mamta Kulkarni was the talk of the town till she accused Rajkumar Santoshi, the director of China Gate, for molesting her. In return, Rajkumar Santoshi accused Vivek Goswami (Mamta’s rumoured boyfriend) of threatening his life. Soon after, Mamta disappeared from the Bollywood scene. The last thing heard about her was, she was living in Dubai with Goswami!

5. Priya Gill

Priya Gill had a pretty successful career during her early days in Bollywood. With films like Tere Mere Sapne and Sirf Tum, the actress had a lot going for her. However, without really being too particular about the kind of films she did, Priya’s fame started plummeting. Amongst some of the films which majorly failed, movies like Bade Dilwale and Josh, did particularly horribly. With no hopes of ever making her presence in the industry felt again, the actress disappeared from the world of Bollywood altogether!

6. Anu Aggarwal

Anu Aggarwal’s story is perhaps one of the most tragic stories when it comes to celebrities who disappeared from the world of Bollywood. Anu Aggarwal was best known for her performance in Mahesh Bhatt’s Aashiqui. Almost reaching the category of brilliant actresses, Aggarwal’s rise to fame was cut short when the actress met with a horrific road accident. She slipped into a coma for a month and true to her Bollywood life, she made a comeback with a tell all book about what happened to her. Unfortunately, Aggarwal doesn’t do any movies now.

Bollywood has seen a lot of people come in and go from the industry without leaving a mark with their work. However, the ones who left, despite making an impact with their movies, are the ones which make you wonder where they went. If you think we missed mentioning any other celebrities who disappeared like this, comment and let us know!

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

on

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!
