Published

on

The year 2018 has been quite a gripping one, not just in terms of the movies released, but also in terms of all the controversies which plagued the star studded industry! As the year comes to a close, here’s taking a look at everything which happened; from the Padmavaat controversies, to the #MeToo moment exploding in full force and to the lawsuits being filed.

1. The Padmaavat controversies 

Since the moment Sanjay Leela Bhansali announced Padmaavat (initially titled Padmavati,) the film came under the gun for all the wrong reasons. When the trouble began in the year 2017, everything that could go wrong in the film went wrong. From a bounty being announced for Deepika Padukone’s head, to petitions being filed against the film for it to be banned in several cities, this Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie had more than its fair share of drama. Only after a series of cuts, reductions and a change in the name of the film, the Censor Board finally approved the release. Once the movie released, however, the controversies really didn’t seem that big a deal, with the movie breaking all the possible box office records!

2. The #MeToo issue 

When Tanushree Dutta came out and accused Nana Patekar of harassment, the attention it garnered created a ripple effect in the entire industry, with various others coming out and talking about their experiences. The reaction was so strong, several people were brought to justice. People like Tanmay Bhat, Gursimran Khamba, Anu Malik, Subhash Ghai and Sajid Khan were also accused of misconduct.

3. Everything about Aiyaary

Everything about this particular Sidharth Malhotra and Manoj Bajpayee starrer blared trouble right from the very beginning. When the film was screened for the Revising Committee of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, the officials didn’t like certain parts of the movie and insisted on cuts. Only after the film was approved by the Revising Committee did Aiyaary get approved for release! However, while that seemed to quieten down the controversy surrounding the movie, Sidharth Malhotra’s comment about the Bhojpuri dialect caused a flurry of emotions around the country. Finally, with all the hate the actor received, the Aiyaary team had to issue an official apology to quieten down the issue. Oops.

4. The plagiarism charges against PadMan 

Only days after Akshay Kumar’s highly publicized and popularised movie PadMan hit the screens, the makers were charged with plagiarism! Ripu Daman Jaiswal went on social media and claimed, the script and idea for this movie were given by him during a pre production meeting with the PadMan team. Only after the makers came out and said the inspiration for the movie was drawn from Twinkle Khanna’s book The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad, did the controversy die down.

15 Years Of Lakhsya – Bollywood Movies About War

Published

on

Remember how Hrithik Roshan grew up and joined the Indian Army to inspire the rest of us in Lakshya?  As today marks 15 years since the release of this film, here is taking a look at some war movies which were not just about the lives of Indian soldiers but also about war and what the soldiers went through:

1. Lakshya

Directed by Farhan Akhtar, Lakshya told the story of Lieutenant Karan Shergill, who leads his squad to victory by capturing a territory taken over by Pakistan.  While war does play a crucial role in this movie, the other issue with which this film deals is how people grow when faced with responsibility.  From facing real life issues head on, to understanding the discipline and time which goes into becoming an adult, Lakshya is a true tribute to war and soldiers.

2. Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Sathiyo

Directed by Anil Sharma, Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Sathiyo tells the story of how terrorists attacked the holy temple of Kedarnath.  Apart from the story about this attack, the film also talks about how a man joins the Indian Army for a few years before moving to the United States. However, after he joins, he realises the amount of effort which goes into being a soldier and from then on, everything about his life changes.  Everything about this movie is heartwarming and shows how much people can do when pushed into a corner.

3. LOC Kargil

Based on the Kargil War fought between India and Pakistan, LOC Kargil was directed by J.P. Dutta.  A step by step account of everything which happened during the Kargil War, the film brings to the fore the hardships of war and what soldiers go through on a daily basis.  A multi layered story, LOC Kargil talks about the soldiers who made the entire operation a success.  Everything about this movie made you not only respect the amount of effort soldiers put into the war but also how much personal sacrifices they make for their country.

4. Airlift

Unlike the other films, Airlift tells the story of how a businessman helps evacuate Indians in Kuwait who are stuck there during the invasion of Kuwait by Saddam Hussein.  While this is one of the primary issues about which this movie talks, Airlift also looks at how the lead puts his personal life aside to help his fellow countrymen when in need.  A true patriotic movie, Airlift makes you fall in love with how far people can go to help their countrymen when required.

5. Border

Director J.P. Dutta’s shot to fame, Border was based on the Indo Pakistan War of 1971.  Touted to be one of the best war films to have been released, this movie showed what our soldiers went through to make our country a safe place.  From night patrols to killing men at gunpoint, Border makes you realise how deep the spirit of patriotism runs in a soldier’s blood.

If you think we missed out on any other great movies about war and soldiers giving their lives to protect their motherland, comment and let us know!
