Bollywood Movies Which Became Hits Without Songs, 6 Bollywood films with no songs, Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro Movie, No Songs and still hit Hindi Films, Ek Ruka Hua Faisla film, Water movie without songs or dance sequences, Anurag Kashyap Kaun Movie, Amitabh Bachchan Black Movie highlights, A Wednesday Movie

Bollywood as an industry has become so synonymous with songs and dance, it has become extremely hard to imagine movies without them. When you watch movies without songs, you are invariably forced to pay more attention to the story of the film. Here is taking a look at movies which were superhits even though they didn’t have any song to back them! 

1. Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro

Directed by Kundan Shah, this 1983 film was a satire about the rampant corruption in the Indian political system. Starring Naseeruddin Shah, Ravi Baswani, Om Puri, Pankaj Kapur, Satish Shah and Satish Kaushik, this film was a telltale of sorts, based on all the things wrong with the Indian Government. For a film like this, it was almost necessary not to have any songs interrupting the brilliant storytelling technique. The lack of songs made sure the movie flowed seamlessly from scene to scene, without interruptions and distractions.

2. Ek Ruka Hua Faisla

A remake of 12 Angry Men, this Basu Chatterji film was gripping, entertaining and extremely well made. With a detailed characterization of the jury, this movie worked the way it did because it had no songs punctuating the intense story. With a cast made of some of the best television and cinema actors, Ek Ruka Hua Faisla was in more ways much better than the original film! A treat to watch, the rendition of the script was also really well done. A story like this would have fallen flat had there been songs as the back and forth arguments would have not had the impact they had in the actual movie.

3. Water

Based in the year 1938, this Deepa Mehta directorial showed the life of widows in a British occupied India. At the time, widows were seen as a disgrace to the society and were confined to old age homes, post the death of their husbands, no matter what their age. Remarriage was considered a strong no no at the time and this Deepa Mehta directorial showed how one woman (Kalyani) did the unexpected by falling in love again. The point of this story was driven home because the story was told without having any songs or dance sequences.

4. Kaun

While certain thrillers work really well with music backing the story line, this movie, written by Anurag Kashyap, proved just the opposite. Directed by Ram Gopal Varma, this movie had more than enough twists to keep you hooked to an extremely surprising end. What makes the movie stand out so much is, the lack of songs throughout the film made one want to pay attention to the entire story! By eliminating the songs from this movie entirely, Ram Gopal Varma quite literally showed one how a classic whodunnit would really look like if done well!

5. Black

Starring Amitabh Bachchan and directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Black tells the story of a visually and hearing impaired girl. Depicting the relationship of the girl with her professor, the story of this film draws inspiration from the life of Helen Keller. What makes this movie stand out so much that it is exactly what one would not expect from a Bhansali directorial. No flashy sets, no loud music and no hyped up dance steps. Who could imagine Bhansali creating a movie like this! No one, right? Furthermore, the intensity of this movie required for songs to be absent throughout, giving the words the weightage they needed for one to feel the pain.

6. A Wednesday!

When Neeraj Pandey made his splashing debut with a hard hitting political film like A Wednesday!, not many people thought it would become a success. No songs, dance sequences and no epic love stories. How could films like this become a success? However, all doubts were dispelled the moment this film released. Making a massive splash at the box office, Neeraj Pandey’s debut earned a whopping Rs. 9 crores, despite not having any songs! As a director, Neeraj Pandey made sure his presence was felt by going the unconventional route. Making a debut with a strong and hard hitting film like this, Pandey really proved that when it comes to making a mark with your first film, you need a strong story above everything else.

When films are made without songs acting like fillers or carry forwards, it becomes imperative to want to pay attention to the storyline. This is precisely why such films need to be made! If you think we missed out on any other movies which became hits without songs, comment and let us know!

India’s Most Wanted Movie Review

Published

India's Most Wanted Movie Review,Mango Bollywood,Bollywood Movie Reviews And Ratings, featured, Latest Bollywood movie news,India's Most Wanted Review,India's Most Wanted Movie Review and Rating,India's Most Wanted Rating,India's Most Wanted Movie Story,India's Most Wanted Movie 2019

Director: Raj Kumar Gupta

Cast: Arjun Kapoor, Prashanth P. Alexandrr, Rajesh Sharma, Shantilal Mukherjee, Asif Khan and Gaurav Mishra

Story

A Raj Kumar Gupta directorial, India’s Most Wanted shows how 5 officers led by Prabhat (Arjun Kapoor) track down India’s most wanted terrorist, Yasin Bhatkal. Without using weapons, guns or any kind of monetary support, the team of officers track and bring to justice India’s most wanted terrorist.

Review

Inspired by true life events, India’s Most Wanted tells the story of how officers not only nab Yasin Bhatkal, a terrorist and the founder of the Indian Mujahideen. This movie showcases the hunt for Bhatkal renamed Yusuf, and also  depicts the massive gaps with the way Indian law enforcement agencies deal with crime. The movie opens to a group of five officers who get a  tip off about the whereabouts of Yusuf and they swear to bring him to justice in under four days.

Unlike other crime thrillers, this movie shows the officers as five ordinary men with no fancy frills or over the top gadgets. However, while the story is solid as it goes, the movie lacks the tension and drama one would expect. The underplaying of the officers seems to go against the plot and not work with it, making the movie seems slightly long and winded.

However, while the obvious tension is missing from the film, the fact that all the officers live with the fear of death at the hands of Yusuf keep you hooked. Filled with songs and different scenes of worried characters, the movie builds up to a nail biting climax.

What works for this movie is the way Raj Kumar Gupta uses a cast which perfectly portrays the ordinary life of the officers. Prabhat (Arjun Kapoor) plays the role of the leader who takes it upon himself to capture Yusuf.

All in all, the well rounded way the actors and director Raj Kumar Gupta, work makes the film a good watch. Telling the story of unsung heroes and silent officers who make India safe, India’s Most Wanted, tells a story which needs to be heard.

PM Narendra Modi Biopic Review

Published

on

PM Narendra Modi Biopic Review,Mango Bollywood,Bollywood Movie Reviews And Ratings, featured, Latest Bollywood movie news,PM Narendra Modi Review,PM Narendra Modi Movie Review,PM Narendra Modi Movie Rating,PM Narendra Modi Movie Story

Director: Omung Kumar

Cast: Vivek Oberoi, Manoj Joshi, Prashant Narayanan, Anjan Srivastav, Darshan Kumar, Zarina Wahab, Rajendra Gupta, Boman Irani

Story

Just like the name of the biopic suggests, PM Narendra Modi is based on the life of Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi. Chronicling the beginning of his life as a tea seller at a railway station, the movie maps the political journey of the Prime Minister. The biopic climaxes at the point  where Mr. Narendra Modi swears in as the Prime Minister of India in the year 2014!

Review

Despite the release of PM Narendra Modi being delayed by the Election Commission of India (EC) till after the Lok Sabha elections, the release is nothing short of a victory parade. Since the beginning of the movie, the makers have made sure they pay tribute to PM Modi in every way possible.

Every frame is a tribute to the rise of man who was once a  tea seller at a railway station who rose to first become a RSS member and then the Prime Minister of the Country. For those who love the man unconditionally, this biopic is a reaffirmation of their faith but, for those who like to watch biopics with a solid dose of reality, will question the finer points.

While Modi is shown in almost  god like form, the opposition is shown as a weak and incompetent party. Perhaps what makes a stark notable point here is that Manmohan Singh has absolutely no speaking role in the film. While businessman Narayanan is seen working with journalist Kumar to bring down Mr. Modi, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are shown as figureheads with not much of a role.

The only other character in the film who has almost as much screen space as Mr. Modi is Boman Irani, who plays the man responsible for giving Gujarat the Tata Group. Unlike other biopics (Thackeray for example,) PM Narendra Modi offers no points of debate.

Overall, the film is worth a watch if you are a Narendra Modi Ji fan but not if you want to watch a well thought out biopic.

PM Narendra Modi Trailer Released, PM Narendra Modi biopic trailer out, Vivek Oberoi latest film trailer, PM Narendra Modi Biopic Trailer Launch, Vivek Oberoi's PM Narendra Modi movie news, Mango Bollywood, Vivek Oberoi Upcoming movie news, Modi Biopic Movie Latest update, PM Narendra Modi Movie latest news

After a long wait (and just short of the Lok Sabha elections,) the trailer of the biopic about PM Narendra Modi was released today. With Vivek Oberoi playing Narendra Modi, the trailer maps out the Prime Minister’s life from before his entrance into politics to being a Prime Minister. With subtle prosthetics and makeup done the right way, Oberoi has pulled off Modi’s character perfectly.

Opening to the days of Modi’s life as a tea seller at a railway station, the trailer moves forward to show how Modi ended up as one of the most important persons in India. With hard hitting slogans, the tri colour fluttering with pride and hints of anti Pakistani sentiments, this movie is a tribute to Modi. Watch the trailer here and now!


Apart from giving us an insight into Modi’s life, the trailer also shows us what to expect from the different characters in the film. Furthermore, it also shows us Modi’s life as a child and about his self imposed exile from family and marriage life. From rescuing Muslims, to saving a burning Gujarat and to the victory of Modi’s party in 2014, this trailer shows Narendra Modi as not just a leader, but a man of action.

While some people argue, this movie is about furthering and promoting the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) before the Lok Sabha elections, others say it is a dedication to the Party’s leader. Also starring Boman Irani, Manoj Sinha, Zarina Wahab, Barkha Bisht, Darshan Rawal, Akshat R. Saluja, Anjan Shrivastav, Rajendra Gupta and Yatin Karyekar, this biopic is directed by Omung Kumar.


With most of the film shot in Gujarat, the biopic is co produced by Sandeep Ssingh, Suresh Oberoi and Anand Pandit. Initially scheduled to release on the 12th of April, the release date of PM Narendra Modi was changed. This movie is now slated to hit the screens on the 5th of April this year.

Kalank First Song Ghar More Pardesiya Out Now, Kalank song Review, Kalank first song, Ghar more Pardesiya from Kalank, Madhuri Dixit and Alia Bhatt Kalank, Mango Bollywood, Alia Bhatt Kalank Video Song, Alia Bhatt Upcoming Movie News, Kalank Latest News and Updates

After keeping us all waiting with bated breath for something other than just a teaser, the makers of Kalank have finally released a brand new song! Titled Ghar More Pardesiya, this new song doesn’t have a conventional pair as the lead but is instead, centered around Alia Bhatt’s and Madhuri Dixit’s characters.

Written by Amitabh Bhattacharya, the voice has been given by Shreya Ghoshal and Vaishali Mhade. The song opens to Alia Bhatt’s and Varun Dhawan’s characters entering a Ramleela performance. While on the one side of the stage, Laxman draws the epic Lakshman Rekha in front of Sita, Madhuri Dixit’s character is seen swinging on the other side. Listen to the song here.

What makes this song stand out is the way the attention to detail and the old school charm the song has. From the way the song was picturised, to the way Madhuri and Alia are dressed, the picturisation of this song has been perfectly done.

Days before the song was released, Alia teased everyone with tiny bits and pieces about how the shoot for the song went, “A song that gave me sleepless nights, days & months is coming very very soon.. I think you can safely say that I have never been SO nervous for anything in my life.. *screams frantically and hides under bed* You may have to send a search party to find me. Meanwhile watch this space for more.”

Directed by Abhishek Varman (known for other brilliant movies like 2 States,) this movie is the most awaited film of this year. Also starring Sonakshi Sinha, Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapur in key roles, Kalank is all set to hit the screens on the 17th of April this year!
