The teaser of the upcoming romantic film Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga (ELKDTAL) begins with the video clips from the film 1942: A Love Story of Anil Kapoor which is famous for defining the meaning of romance in Bollywood. Soon, the teaser of ELKDTAL time travels to 2018 and shifts the focus from a simple love story to the present day scenario of a syaapa love story featuring Sonam Kapoor and Rajkumar Rao in the leading roles. Anil Kapoor plays the role of Sonam Kapoor’s dad in the film while Rajkumar Rao plays Sonam’s love interest. The father-daughter duo is all set to recreate their real-life bond on screen and it is absolutely magical! The movie revolves around a Punjabi girl and her beau going through tough times! The teaser highlights a Punjabi family and their traditional events taking place in a desi village which reminds of you those ’90s romantic flicks. The teaser also shows Juhi Chawla dancing and enjoying the events along with the cast!
An hour before releasing the teaser, Sonam Kapoor shared the poster of ELKDTAL.
The tagline of the movie reads a syaapa love story. This desi love story ain’t no ordinary story! Here is the trailer!
The film is produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and is scheduled to release on 12 October this year. The film is directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar. In an interview, Shelly said we will be shooting at a family house in Patiala, which is a perfect setting for the film. I am shooting entirely at real locations as I want the film to develop as organically as possible. We can’t wait to start rolling now.
We can’t wait to watch this romantic flick!
Badla First Song Kyun Rabba Released
Kyun Rabba, the first song from Taapsee Pannu’s and Amitabh Bachchan’s highly anticipated film, Badla, is finally out! While the recently released trailer shows us about what the movie is, without really divulging the details, the song gives us a little more insight.
Composed by Amaal Mallik and sung by Armaan Malik, the first song has been shot through the point of view of the character played by Taapsee Pannu. Bringing out an array of emotions and feelings, Kyun Rabba shows how a woman deals with a broken heart and with unrequited love. Listen to the song from Badla here and now!
Dil haste haste roh padaa, dard aansuon mein hai bada…
Watch the first song from #Badla, and let its beautiful lyrics touch your soul#KyunRabba https://t.co/z0RyWHo9IA @SrBachchan @sujoy_g @AmaalMallik @ArmaanMalik22 @kumaarofficial @redchilliesent @iamazure @zeemusiccompany

Centering primarily around the character played by Taapsee Pannu, this song is all about accepting that life doesn’t always go the way you want. With different storylines being played out, this song also hints at the fact that Taapsee’s character may be having an extramarital affair. With not a lot of information revealed about this part in the trailer or any of the posters, the twist in the song adds a certain sense of intrigue to the story.
Speaking about the song, composer Amaal Mallik said in a statement, “I like to keep things simple, especially for a song that is set in a thriller like Badla, where the emotions need to be conveyed with complexity. So, I compose a melody first and then place the arrangements for the song. Here, we’ve opted for an alternate rock feel with an Indian soundscape.”
With the song being all things simple and easy, Kyun Rabba doesn’t act like a filler, but instead, pushes the movie forward. Directed by Sujoy Ghosh, Badla brings back Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu after Pink, their first film together. While Taapsee Pannu plays the role of a woman trying to defend herself, Amitabh Bachchan plays the role of her lawyer. Badla is scheduled to hit the screens on the 8th of March this year!
Photograph Trailer Released
Photograph, Ritesh Batra’s latest directorial, has been hitting the headlines for all the right reasons! With an impressive cast, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra, Batra tells a beautiful story. Shot through the streets of Mumbai, the recently dropped trailer of Photograph gives one a glimpse of love in a different way altogether.
The two and a half minute long trailer shows how both Rafi (Nawazuddin) and Miloni (Sanya Malhotra) start falling in love with each other in strange circumstances. Desperately trying to avoid marriage, the trailer shows how both Miloni and Rafi live their lives on their own terms. With the first seeds of romance being sown when Rafi takes a mesmerising picture of Miloni in front of the Gateway of India, the rest of the trailer shows an interesting display of emotions. Watch the trailer here!
प्यारी दादी आपकी बहु को लेकर आ रहा हूँ 15 मार्च को…
नज़दीकी सिनमाघरों में।
तब तक उसकी ये झलक देख लीजिये।।
Trailer Out Now #Photograph @riteshbatra @sanyamalhotra07 @AmazonStudios @PhotographAmzn https://t.co/w1GV5i7V8a
— Nawazuddin Siddiqui (@Nawazuddin_S) February 18, 2019
Just when Rafi and Miloni start developing a bond, Rafi learns of his grandmother, played by Farrukh Jaffar, not taking her tablets. Why? Rafi is rejecting every girl he sees and the very idea of marriage in itself. Introducing Miloni as his love interest, Rafi opens the doors to a new story entirely. Through the trailer, one sees the bond growing stronger in a way which makes you wonder if the bond is fabricated, or if there is a chance of a true romance developing!
Just like The Lunchbox, Ritesh Batra has once again done wonders and brought two extremely unlikely people together in a beautiful manner. Watching an unusual friendship develop into a stronger relationship is going to be quite a treat to watch. With Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra bringing their A games to the table, Photograph promises to be an engaging movie! Also starring Sachin Khedekar, Geetanjali Kulkarni, Robin Das, Jim Sarbh and Denzil Smith, Photograph is scheduled to hit the screens on the 15th of March this year!
Luka Chuppi Song, Tu Laung Main Elaachi, Out Now
Tu Laung Main Elaachi, the fourth song from Luka Chuppi, just dropped. Looking at it, one can safely say, the trend of remaking songs isn’t dying anytime soon. With Kriti Sanon’s and Kartik Aaryan’s characters being the central focus, this song is set against the backdrop of their wedding.
The new song draws inspiration from a Punjabi song with a similar name (Laung Laachi,) and leaves you wanting for more. Sung by Mannat Noor, the original track is from a 2018 movie, Laung Laachi. Interestingly, the new version retains the lyrics from the original Punjabi song, which were written by Harmanjit. The music for the new version is composed by Tanishk Bagchi. Listen to the new version here!
Iss pyaar mein koi milavat nahi! ❤️Presenting #TuLaungMainElaachi #LukaChuppi https://t.co/Kjap9mNNYu@kritisanon #DineshVijan @Laxman10072 @MaddockFilms @JioCinema @TSeries @itsBhushanKumar @tanishkbagchi @TulsikumarTK pic.twitter.com/GSxlzbYNdK
— Kartik Aaryan (@TheAaryanKartik) February 18, 2019
The two and a half minute video of Tu Laung Main Elaachi sees Kartik’s and Kriti’s characters shaking their legs to the tunes of this Punjabi song during the rituals which follow their wedding. This new song is the fourth recreated song of the movie, with the earlier songs being Poster Lagwa Do, Coca Cola and Photo. In fact, according to the rumour mill, the makers are all set to release a fifth song, also a remake, called Duniya!
Telling the story of two people defying the society by living together before marriage, Luka Chuppi is directed by Laxman Utekar. Also starring Aparshakti Khurana and Pankaj Tripathi, this movie is produced by Dinesh Vijan. Scheduled to release on the 1st of March, Luka Chuppi is going to clash with the Bhumi Pednekar and Sushant Singh Rajput starrer, Sonchiraiya! With a story line like this, it is going to be truly interesting to see how Luka Chuppi does at the thearter!
Bollywood Movies Which Failed When They First Released
Some Bollywood movies become hits and some fail. However, there are some with brilliant scripts and characters which fail, despite having everything going the right way for them. There are movies which gained recognition long after they hit the screens. Here’s taking a look at the movies which should have been super hits, but failed to make the kind of impact they should have!
1. Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro
The failure of this film is a shocker even today. Despite having an impressive star cast (Boman Irani, Naseeruddin Shah, Puri, Ravi Baswani and Pankaj Kapur,) the film just failed to take off when it first released. A story about two photographers and their journey to success, Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro just did not get the credit it deserved. Why? Because people in the ’80s just didn’t get satire as a concept, especially when it came in the form of a film! However, after a couple of years, the movie started being noticed by the right audience and people finally started accepting the greatness it was! So much that it eventually became a cult phenomenon!
2. Andaz Apna Apna
Andaz Apna Apna, despite being such a loved and sought after movie today, just failed to make an impression when it released. Although Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Raveena Tandon and Karishma Kapoor gave brilliant performances, the movie just refused to stick. While the targeted audience refused to get the message of the film (friendship always comes over love) at that point, people today absolutely love it. Well, it probably takes a long time to appreciate the intensity of the film and the brilliance of the story.
3. Rocket Singh
Perhaps the first time Ranbir Kapoor played a Sikh, the failure of Rocket Singh was a massive surprise. With a storyline which was impressive to the very end, this movie showed the struggles and the underbelly of the marketing world to perfection. However, what people didn’t get perhaps was the understated way the movie told the story. While all the actors put out their finest performances, the movie just didn’t do the wonders it was expected to at the box office. However, a few years later, the film finally picked up a fan following, going so far as to winning Ranbir Kapoor an award at the Filmfare!
4. Pyar Ka Punchnama
Okay, the fact this particular film failed wasn’t an entire surprise. Albeit being filled with certain funny moments and interesting monologues, the movie just failed to stick with the larger audience. Made with six debutants, this film had a lot of hidden innuendos and snide comments against a particular gender. A reason, which perhaps acted as the film’s drawback. However, despite all the negative remarks, this film still managed to get quite a good following years after its release. In fact, people liked it so much, they went ahead and made a second part! Oh, well! Humour is subjective.
When news about Swades first started doing the rounds, people thought there was no doubt the movie was going to be a success. However, when it eventually released, it barely made a splash. Complete with a star like Shah Rukh Khan playing the lead and a story which was heartwarming to the very end, the reaction Swades received was lukewarm, at best. Telling the story of one man’s dreams of providing electricity to his village, the climax just failed to keep the audience hooked. Thankfully though, good sense prevailed and people finally accepted Swades for all the great things it has to offer, purely because of the content.
Another Ranbir Kapoor movie which just didn’t make the cut when it released, Rockstar flopping was quite a surprise. While both Nargis Fakhri and Ranbir Kapoor brought their A games to the table, the movie was just not liked by the audience. One of the reasons which could be attributed to the dislike is the fact, the ending was in no way conducive to the rest of the story. While it may not have done well or appreciated at the time of its release, Rockstar started gaining a cult following and today, it is quite a favourite movie!
There are movies which become instant successes when they release and then there are movies which take time to gain following. This is our list of movies which gained recognition after they hit the screens. What movies do you think should have become successes, but failed instead? Comment and let us know!
