FryDay Review And First Day Expectations, FryDay Movie Review and Rating, Govinda Fry Day Movie Public Review, FryDay Movie Box Office Collections, FryDay Bollywood Movie First Day Collections Report, Latest Hindi Movie FrDay Story, Mango Bollywood, FryDay Hindi Movie Highlights,

Cast: Govinda, Varun Sharma, Digangana Suryavanshi, Prabhleen Sandhu, Brijendra Kala, Rajesh Sharma, Sanjay Mishra

Director: Abhishek Dongra

Story 

A comic and slightly glorified take on infidelity, FryDay is an out and out Govinda based film. Set almost entirely in one specific location (Delhi,) the movie has some really funny lines, with most of the one liners handled brilliantly by the man for whom they seem to have been written. With perfectly timed comebacks and comic relief written with flawless perfection, FryDay is a tribute to films like Pati, Patni Aur Woh and some other Govinda classics.

Centering around Varun Sharma’s character (a water purifier salesman) and an actor specialising in improvisation (Govinda,) this particular Abhishek Dongra is an out and out laughter riot. Govinda’s character (Gagan) has a wife (Bela, played by Prabhleen Sandhu,) but she just does not seem to satisfy his urges. To satiate the never ending cravings, Gagan takes on a lover (Bindu, played by Digangana Suryavanshi.) The story takes a turn here, with all the characters coming into their own and each of them having individual spin offs to their storylines.

Review 

The central crux of the movie revolves around Gagan and Bindu, who are in lustless marriages and are tied together by bonds of never ending societal expectations. Varun Sharma’s character enters the scene, interrupting the highly built up and anticipated coitus scene, but very quickly discovers Gagan is far from being the ideal customer. What follows is a sort of comedy of errors, with different characters coming in and out of the scene.

All the major events in the film take place in one primary location, with multiple characters going in and out as per the script requirements. This particular Abhishek Dongra film scores well in terms of comedy, but has one fatal flaw: is it really okay to cast a humorous spin on infidelity?

FryDay is the perfect balm for a world that has not seen Govinda in action for a very long time. With every character playing their part to perfection, this movie is nothing short of an entertaining story in an industry dominated by serious and slightly over the top movies. Watch it with an open mind and an accepting heart for the acting and the comic relief!

Irrfan Khan- An Ode To The Gentleman Actor

Irrfan Khan is one of Bollywood’s finest actors whose career spanned almost three decades.  Irrfan Khan brought multiple accolades to India and Indian cinema throughout his career by acting in Indian, British and Hollywood movies. The Angrezi Medium actor, sadly passed away in Mumbai owing to a sudden colon infection.  Khan recently battled with a neuroendocrine tumour and has announced his success against beating the cancer.  

Irrfan Khan is known for his offbeat and slice of life movies which make the viewers deeply reflect on life and philosophy.  Having made his debut with the Academy Award nominated movie Salaam Bombay! (1988,) Irrfan rose to prominence with his wide variety of roles he essayed throughout his career.  However, Irrfan Khan’s talent gained recognition with his portrayal of Paan Singh Tomar (2011) in the biopic movie of the same name.  Khan won the National Film Award for the best actor for his performance in Paan Singh Tomar.

Nishabdham Trailer - Madhavan Starrer Promises An Intense Thriller

Nishabdham is an upcoming multilingual movie which stars Anushka Shetty and Madhavan in the lead roles. Directed by Hemant Madhukar, this film is jointly produced by T.G. Vishwa Prasad, Vivek Kuchibhotla and Kona Venkat. 

The trailer begins with an intense and ominous shot in the basement of a house in the U.S., showing a dead body and a terrified Sakshi (Anushka Shetty) turning towards the camera. The next shot shows a news anchor outside the house which is being referred to as a haunted house.  A visibly injured Sakshi is seen in a hospital bed trying to convince Maha (Anjali,) a cop that it was a ghost who committed the murder.  Maha believes it is Sakshi’s best friend Sonali (Shalini Pandey) who committed the crimes but it turns out she is already deceased and cremated.  The plot of the movie can be deduced from the rest of the trailer. Nishadham will be a movie where Sakshi and Maha race against time to connect the dots and uncover the killer.

Watch the trailer here:

 

Madhavan will be seen in an upcoming bilingual movie Rocketry: The Nambi Effect in which he will star alongside Simran Bagga.  The movie is based on the life of Nambi Narayan, a former scientist and aerospace engineer of the Indian Space Research Organisation who was accused of espionage.

Shahid Kapoor,Happy Birthday Versatile Performer Shahid Kapoor,Mango Bollywood,Bollywood Celebrities News 2020,Happy Birthday Shahid Kapoor,Shahid Kapoor Birthday Special,Shahid Kapoor Birthday Celebrations 2020,Shahid Kapoor turns 39,Shahid Kapoor versatile roles,most versatile actor in bollywood

Shahid Kapoor made his feature film debut as a shy chocolate boy with the movie Ishq Vishq, and the actor has not looked back since then.  Shahid took on diverse roles ranging from a deranged druggie in Udta Punjab to a morally upright Rajput king in Padmaavat.  Son of renowned actor Pankaj Kapoor and Neelima Azeem, Shahid hails from a family with acting in its blood. Shahid Kapoor has grown in the Hindi film industry on his own merit, establishing himself with his choice of tricky and versatile roles. 

Shahid Kapoor turns 39 today.  Let us have a look at some of his most versatile roles in recent years. 

1. Haider (2014) 

Haider was an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.  Shahid Kapoor starred as Haider Meer, a student returning from Aligarh Muslim University to his home in Kashmir, only to find his father missing.  Haider starts out on a journey with his friend Arshia, a journalist, to find out what happened to his father. What begins as an ordinary search, spirals out of control and drags Haider  into a web of conspiracies involving terrorist entities. Haider showcases an individual’s journey from sanity into the depths of insanity.  Shahid was splendid in showcasing Haider’s slow descent into madness.

2. Udta Punjab (2016) 

When Udta Punjab released, it courted controversy due to the nature of its content and plot that hinted at the highly prevalent drug abuse problem among the youth of Punjab.  The censor board had to step in and direct the filmmakers to make a total of 89 cuts to the film. Shahid Kapoor starred as Tejinder Singh, also known as Gabru, who has a penchant for abusing drugs and writing songs that glorify violence.  In an unfortunate incident, Gabru accidentally shoots an accomplice which lands him in prison. This causes Gabru to reflect on his actions and how his songs mislead the youth of Punjab to use drugs. Gabru has a change of heart and decides to use his fame to spread word about the negative effects of drugs. Shahid’s portrayal of Gabru as an energetic singer and his portrayal of a man who has a change of heart was brilliant.

3. Padmaavat (2018) 

Shahid Kapoors played the role of one of India’s celebrated Rajput warrior kings, Maharawal Ratan Singh in Padmaavat.  Shahid was spot on in portraying Raja Ratan Singh, being mellow when required and showcasing the famed Rajput bravery when required.  Be it handling a sword on the battlefield or giving inspiring speeches to his followers, Shahid was able to do it all with a flourish.  Padmaavat was a movie filled with powerful acting performances from Shahid Kapoor. 

4. Kabir SIngh (2019) 

Kabir Singh was Shahid Kapoor’s latest movie and  a remake of the Telugu cult movie Arjun Reddy.  Shahid Kapoor was able to showcase the journey of Kabir Singh, a house surgeon, who loses his way by abusing alcohol and drugs  due to a break up with the love of his life. The breakup completely derails Kabir Singh’s life leading him to cut corners and regulations in surgeries and abuse his relationship with his best friends.  Shahid’s performance as Kabir Singh was compelling and his acting was of excellent quality. 

Here is wishing this extremely talented actor a very happy birthday and here is looking forward to more amazing movies from Shahid Kapoor!
