For the 90’s kids, the song Tip Tip Barsa Paani makes so many images in our head. Firstly the song was shot during the rains and that too in an abandoned building. And add to it, the chemistry between Raveena Tandon and Akshay Kumar, not too forget how gorgeous she looked with her yellow saree. The sensuality of the song and the beauty of the stars made this set standards for most and is hard to beat.
But, that is not why we wrote this, a comedian by the name of Zakir Khan, a stand-up comedian by profession, has come up with a review of the song named Kabhi Gaana Kabhi Logic, and it’s hilarious. His observations are so astute that we relate to it and it takes us down memory lane. It is a definite must watch:
It’s always the case of ‘Ghar ki Murgi, Daal Barabar’, the first few weeks with your significant other is always breathtaking. All the random walks in the park and impromptu movie nights would always have you dressed to the nines. You would always check your appearance wherever possible and wait for a bathroom break to check your appearance. Gradually you become comfortable around your special someone, and that’s when you let your looks slip, much to their silent chagrin.
This is exactly what Girlyappa’s new song, a parody of a popular Bollywood number, sums up this situation so perfectly and it isn’t hard to admit how relatable it is. As women you have always had some friends who have had boyfriends, whose love-hate relationship with bathing has kept them up late at nights. This video features Nidhi Singh of Permanent Roommates, playing the disgruntled girlfriend of a guy with truly questionable hygiene habits. The chances she gives her boyfriends to clean up his act and improve are seriously rib tickling funny and at the end when she finally has her way makes you want to be happy for her.
The much awaited film, ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ is a Indian Hindi romantic drama film directed and written by Karan Johar. If features Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharm in lead roles.
Lets get back to the point, after an emotional title track, another track from Karan Johar’s film, ‘Bulleya’ is out and it sounds absolutely amazing! This is a once a couple of years kind of track and has Sufi influences. Of course, the chemistry between Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai looks amazing in the song. The song is composed by Pritam and the voices of playback singers Amit Mishra and Shilpa Rao have made it so soulful!
It may not be news that Ajay Devgn’s Production ‘Parched’ is about to hit the screen this month. He has casted starts like Radhika Apte, Surveen Chawla and Adil Hussain, which captures the lives of rural women in the country. The movie has won many awards at the International Film Festivals around the world, and it is about to be released in the country now. Talking about the movie, Producer was quick to point out that the movie was not just about women.
He said, “This film isn’t about women only, but also about the men.. where both are victims. It is the society pressure which forces men to do thing apart from the mindset. So, this film talks about tackling both the issues.”
The director of Parched talks about highlights issues like dowry system, physical violence, forced marriages, rape and mental cruelty against women. Adding to this Ajay Devgn added, “While you are making a film like this, as a producer, you should be ready for implications. As for the film, we’ve shown the reality, but sometimes they (CFBC) are also correct that after a limit, one can’t exhibit anything for the sake of reality. Therefore, I think makers should know their boundaries.. what to show and what not to. In this film, we didn’t face any trouble. The film deserves an adult certification and we got that.”
Abhishek Bachchan might not get the accolades he deserves when he stars in front of millions of us. He finds it’s easy to showcase his talent and does so through many memorable performances. But, we bet you did not know that he holds a Guinness World Record.
Yes, he certainly does hold the records for ‘Most Public Appearances Made By a Film Star in 12 Hours’. He broke the record by overtaking Will Smith who made 2 Appearances for his Movie ‘I Robot’ in 2004.
Abhishek did this feat while promoting his movie Delhi-6, he travelled to 7 major cities in India which included Ghaziabad, Nodia, Faridabad, Delhi, Gurgaon, Chandigarh and Mumbai within a period of 12 hours. He did this feat with a help of private jet planes and cars at his disposal. Pretty Cool! Isn’t it.
Anushka Sharma epitomizes what Actors of her Generation are like, they are bubbly, chirpy and full of energy. She is as happy off screen as she is on. Even with the work in hand, she finds time to play with kids in this video. This video shows her human side, bursting bubbles while keeping her calm and cool persona. This is simply something out of this world!
Nargis is a total package; she is bold, beautiful and blunt. And that’s what we love about this woman. She perfectly represents the free-spirited woman of the 21st century.
She believes in stating her opinion and performing and living life to the fullest, she isn’t a shy girl and never takes things for granted.
Nargis is currently promoting her movie Banjo, and during her promotion activities she visits many reality TV shows. She was at the show, Dance Plus, where she wore a stunning teal-colored dress and might we add, carried if off pretty brilliantly.
You might want to add that she looked regal in the outfit, but that’s not what Dance Plus thought.
She was asked to pin up her dress as it was a ‘family show’. Nargis had to comply and pinned up her dress and appeared on the show.
Some people and us on our team consider an abomination on womanhood and feel that the moral police had not only wagged their fingers because it was revealing but she had to pin up her clothes in order to comply.
The family audience which they were talking about was you and me, and if this is how minutely they are censoring content, we might as well give up on television!
Life can take some serious turns, and despite plans changing entirely, some people among us manage to conquer such obstacles and succeed. This is one such story about a man who did not let a prison sentence jail his passion for photography.
According to Upworthy, a set of burglary and petty crimes put Donato Di Camillo behind bars, but he did not let prison stifle his creativity and spent his time usefully. Through the limited amount of literature of National Geographics, Time and other magazine he was able to teach himself photography and the world found out a talented artist.
He used this knowledge when he got out in 2011 to showcase his photography talent to himself and the world. Equipped with this knowledge and also some how-to books and youtube videos he was able to work his magic in front of his muses.
When Di Camillo was a child, his family did not have money to buy films for his poloroid camera. This did not stop him from taking imaginary photos of being on an African Safari and capturing magnificent beasts in all their natural beauty, and dreamed of one day being an iconic behind-the-lens heroes of the world.
Once out of prison he set out in New York to capture a side of life distinctly different from what most of us are used to seeing.
Donato’s subject, his muses were the mentally challenged, homeless and mentally-ill, subjects who were interesting characters or just anything but ordinary from outside the city. He says that his street smarts and his life outside the normal conventional society helped him approach and connect with people that other photographers may struggle with.
“These people walk around, and they’re faceless.” He said. “I feel that everybody deserves a face.”
“I think we all relate to each other in one way or another, whether someone’s laying in the street or running a Fortune 500 company.” He added.
What do we get when you get two of the funniest actors in Hollywood, it shows a rib tickling fun format for people to watch. We got two actors in Owen Wilson from Bottle Rocket and other movies and from the Hangover Trilogy Ed Helms. These two act as Bastards in this movie. The movie starts with these two characters being brothers, when their mother goes and tells them that their father was a fictional character, it sends them on frenzied rabbit hole. They are trying to uncover who their father is and this gets them more information about their mother and the many details of the life she led.
The film looks quite a comic ride and also stars Glenn Close, J.K. Simmons and Terry Bradshaw among others. The scheduled release date of Bastards is January 27.
Ever seen impoverished children begging on the streets, you probably give them alms or food taking pity on them. Ever thought what the kid could achieve if he just had a chance, a shot at excellence? We have one such story which will make you believe in our mind.
Jayavel’s story is about the chance he had and the shot at glory he chanced. The 22-year-old grew up begging on the streets of Chennai, but today, after completing a course at Cambridge University, he’s all set to leave for another in Italy.
Around the 1980s after the family had lost everything when their crops got destroyed, Jayavel’s family had to move from Nellore to Chennai in search for opportunities. Since the family had no source of income, they had to live on the streets and beg for money, Jayavel also had to beg to fetch food and money for the family. In a statement he said
“We used to sleep on one such pavement. If it would rain, we would try to find other shelter in any nearby shops until the cops came and chased us away from there.”
The turning point came when Uma Muthuraman of Suyam Trust found out about Jayavel and offered to help. Uma and her husband worked for upliftment of lives of children on the streets of Chennai when they met Jayavel. They were able to take him under their wings and were able to help Jayavel and his family get over their hesitance and enroll him in a school.
Jayavel’s life at this point took a turn for the better and he was able to succeed of the opportunity he was given.
He scored well in his 12th standard examination and later cleared Cambridge University’s entrance as well. He got himself a seat in Glyndwr University in Wales, and studied ‘Performance Car Enhancement Technology Engineering’, a subject based on enhancing performance of race cars.
Jayavel is now going to Italy for further studies and is a role model for anyone who wants to make it big in life!
