What would Satyam Shivam Sundaram be called today?

What would Satyam Shivam Sundaram be called today?

What if these old classics were made in today's times?Sukanya Verma figures it out. Bollywood movie titles have gotten a lot zanier in the last decade or two. Who knows what some of our best-known entertainers would be named in these Hinglish-friendly times? We tried to imagine, pitting the old against the new, and the results are rather amusing. Take a look.   Jaani Dushman/Hate Story In Rajkumar Kohli's star-studded cult horror, a demonic curse takes the shape of a hairy, revengeful ..., 2 days ago

Bigg Boss 10: Wild theme, wacky participants!

For most part things are fun barring the dull Deepika Padukone segment, writes Sukanya Verma. With this brand new season, Bigg Boss completes a decade of introducing voyeurism to Indian living rooms. As a concept that gains its strength from snooping about using multiple cameras on every possible turn and angle and initiating trouble by gathering unlike individuals to share a roof in a restricted, challenging environment, the contentious reality show on Colors has attracted both fans and flak.

Review: The real tragedy of Mirzya is...

The film sacrifices sense for style, feels Sukanya Verma. Some stories are a product of its time. Against a contemporary perspective, they are straightaway obsolete. But delve deep and they’ll reveal a desperation and repression that could be forged into something dark, disturbing or poignant. It’s what makes Vishal Bhardwaj’s Shakespeare adaptations so vivid and wicked. Regrettably in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s case, his preoccupation with visual splendour comes in way ...

Inside Dharmendra-Hema Malini's private world

Romance died, came alive and lives on forever, off screen or on it, in Sukanya Verma's fabulously filmi week. Monday Photograph: Frazer Harrison / Staff Getty Images Hardly the idiot box junkie to wake up early morning and watch the Emmys, I catch its repeat telecast in the evening only to discover quite a few moments in the Jimmy Kimmel-hosted ceremony. * There’s nothing like too much trolling where Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is concerned. Be it Kimmel reproaching ...

Banjo review: Not much to beat about!

Banjo makes a winsome start but takes an awfully tedious route to achieve its happily ever after, feels Sukanya Verma. It’s the sort of superficiality where Nargis Fakhri sprints about New York City in headphones and in a Def Leppard tee to assert her identity as a music-obsessed DJ and Riteish Deshmukh sports a grungy look to realise Bollywood’s definition of street. Occupying this tired space are also a bunch of oddballs called Grease, Paper and Vajya (Dharmesh Yelande, ...

Sharing Salman Khan!

PINK, Penaz Masani and a precious picture of Nirupa Roy in and as Superman, a low-down of Sukanya Verma's fully filmi week! Monday Oh look, a picture of Bhagyashree and Sheeba celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi in Sangli, Maharashtra. Their BFF fervour may not be as famous as Kareena Kapoor Khan and Amrita Arora or Sonam Kapoor and Swara Bhaskar but the duo’s Instagram feed is ample proof of their attachment. Now for some useless trivia: What do these two actresses from the 1990s share in ...

Review: Despite Nawaz, Freaky Ali fails to impress!

Freaky Ali is painfully dull, warns Sukanya Verma. At some point in Freaky Ali, its titular hero Nawazuddin Siddiqui and his snooty golf rival Jas Arora clash over their economic difference in lines that reek of an era dusted and done with. Straightaway sensing how dated the ameer versus gareeb squabble sounds in the current scenario, Nawaz mocks it in a hushed, self-parodical tone.     If only Sohail Khan’s exercise in stereotypes would facetiously scoff at Freaky ...

Can you recognise this actress?

Sridevi, Karan Johar, Tabu... Sukanya Verma's week was all about time travel and pleasant encounters with the super young avatars of Bollywood’s famous folk.  Monday Only a couple of days ago, I shared a random list of Hindi film songs that make me cry when a discerning aficionado brought up Zindagi Ke Safar Mein Guzar Jaate Hain. Few compositions articulate regret like this one immersed in Anand Bakshi’s ink and Rahul Dev Burman’s melody -- it’s like ...

Mohenjo Daro Review: A 155-minutes long fancy dress competition!

Mohenjo Daro takes too long to get there and feels even longer than the time that’s passed, feels Sukanya Verma. The highly publicised crocodile of Mohenjo Daro appears right in the beginning. And the outcome of his underwater duel with Hrithik Roshan, SPOILER ALERT, akin to a man riding a seekh-inserted meat, sets the tone for the rest of the movie.  In Ashutosh Gowariker’s version of Indus Valley civilisation, Mohenjo Daro is one definite set, in hues of brick, and all its ...

Why Hrithik needs a hit badly

But he has serious competition from Akshay Kumar, says Sukanya Verma, and Rustom. When two of Bollywood's biggest stars -- outside the Khan club -- compete, excitement is a given. That Mohenjo Daro is an adventure epic set in the Indus Valley civilisation and Rustom takes inspiration from 1959's publicised K M Nanavati case only adds to the curiosity. As unique the themes of both these big-budget period dramas may be, the idea of Akshay Kumar and Hrithik Roshan vying for box office attention ...
