Mystery behind 'Meena Kumari Syndrome' revealed!

The name Meena Kumari is synonymous with sorrow, melancholy and desperation and why not???A verse from her poem ?Zindagi Yeh Hai? captures the core of her life. A tattered childhood, wrecked in marriage, letdown in love and betrayed by close relatives made Meena Kumari?s life so gloomy that she sought respite in alcohol and poetry.

Dard ke saye, udasi ka dhuan, dukh ki ghata

Shadows of grief, the smoke of misery, clouds of sorrow

Zindagi yeh hai to phir maut kise kahte hain ??

If this is life, what is it that they call death?

What is paradoxical is that Meena Kumari, not only became a victim of depression in ?Real life? but incidentally even on ?Reel life? Bollywood exploited her tragic avatar. With movies like Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam, Aarti, Dil Apna Aur Preet Parayi, Dil Ek Mandir, Chirag Kahan Roshni Kahan, Bhabhi Ki Chudiyaan, Kaajal etc. Meena

Manmadhudu 2 Movie Review: Critics Review, Rating, Cast and Crew

At 60, Nagarjuna preserves a boyish charm that renders itself with great effectiveness in this winsome, fluffy, bouncy, bubbly and bright rom-com.

Adapted from a 2006 French film , "Prete-moi Ta Main"(which means 'Rent A Wife'), the Telugu adaptation ferrets out the meaty, mirthful, relevant portions from the original and adds bits of its own, which don't always work.

What works is the undeniable chemistry between Nag and his very pretty and confident co-star.

Rakul Preet Singh encores(excuse the French, but that's the flavour) her role from her recent Hindi hit "De De Pyar De". She is the 20-something feisty, fearless, flirtatious femme fatale whom the 40-something virgin Nag(the joke is, he hits on everything in skirts but his family is oblivious) hires to appease his bahu-fixated mother (the lovely Lakshmi; no longer 'Joyous Julie' but still a joy to behold) and his 3 sisters(there were 4 sisters in the original

Bharat and the revival of bicycles on the silver screen in a big way!

He has been an avid bicycle aficionado for ages, but after a long time Salman Khan has chosen to endorse his passion for bicycles in a big way through Bharat, probably with reference to the context of the period that Bharat tries to situate itself it to. It is the common man?s bicycle that Salman Khan would be riding in Bharat, which as a template was emotionally marketed to a finesse by the original Bharat Kumar of the nation aka Manoj Kumar through his super hit film Shor.

When was the last time as a matter of fact did one see a major film star of the Hindi cinema riding a bicycle in the film? In the recent times when the fancy cars and superbikes that have made their debuts and have been positioned as a symbol of machismo, humble bicycle did went into an oblivion from the Hindi cinema.

Badnaam Gali Movie Review

A film on surrogate motherhood for Mother's Day. Sounds just like what the doctor ordered. And?Badnaam Gali, now streaming on ZEE5, does mean well. It displays an exacerbated empathy for the unwed mother, played with endearing artlessness by Patralekhaa, who is a target of vicious gossiping in her Delhi locality.

She is of course not what she seems. Never! And it takes a rough rural Punjabi bloke to set her reputation right and earn himself the honour of being the first social reformist of the live streaming platform, a la Guru Dutt (Pyaasa) and Sunil Dutt ("Sujata?and Sadhana).

Redeeming the 'Fallen Woman' has always been a looming concern in the patriarchal setup of Indian cinema. Making films about women who have restored their dignity through the good offices of a 'progressive' male, makes the patriarchal entertainment industry feel good about itself.

Ever since Sanjay Dutt was announced to be a part of Karan Johar's Kalank, there has been immense excitement to witness the Superstar in the intense and gritty avatar. However, Kalank doesn't mark the collaboration of Sanjay Dutt and Karan Johar but is ideation of Yash Johar.

Sanjay Dutt shares a surreal connection with his character in Kalank

Sanjay Dutt's upcoming film Kalank is one of the most awaited films of the year and is very special to the actor as well. The superstar shares a fond connection with his character in the film as he shares his name with his father. While Sunil Dutt was one of the most respected celebrities of the industry, not many know that his real name was Balraj Dutt.

Being called out by his character on the sets, Sanjay Dutt felt extremely overwhelmed and considers the

Sanju Movie Review

Biopics make subjects immortal by placing the story behind the story in focus on camera. However, biopics are not new to Bollywood even if they are currently fashionable. In the past they have been made about prime ministers, good and bad, and the great patriots of India giving us freedom, especially from the British Raj. Thus, they have been about people being downtrodden but fighting back by joining together under their common cause to in their own way deliver a punch to oppression.

What has changed in recent years is the nature of the biopic going from the martyrs of the nation to more everyday heroes. Instead of Subhash Chandra Bose, we now have Soorma. Instead of Gandhi or Nehru we now get Bhaag Milka Bhaag and Ms Dhoni: The Untold Story. Still these characters have stories of loss and oppression, but they are less about things that define a

‘Sanju’ Review: Bollywood Biopic About One of Its Biggest Stars Takes Dangerous Liberties With History

Bollywood stars like Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan may have the legendary careers and staggering worldwide fame, but there’s good reason why — of all the living actors that could have been the subject of a Bollywood biopic — it’s Sanjay Dutt who emerged as a viable choice, in the newly released “Sanju.” The son of iconic Mother India actress Nargis and actor/activist/politician Sunil Dutt, Sanjay’s life includes tragedy, drama, crime, and redemption in spades—in short, it’s the stuff movies are made of.

Given Sanjay’s highly publicized missteps, writer-director Rajkumar Hirani and co-writer Abhijat Joshi seem well aware that it would be foolish to unabashedly glorify Bollywood’s “bad boy;” in fact, in the very first scene of “Sanju,” an incensed Sanjay (played with uncanny accuracy by Ranbir Kapoor) burns a book by a biographer who likens him to Gandhi. Soon afterwards, his

Sanju Music Review

Sanjay Dutt has survived 40 years in the Hindi film industry taking on many varied roles, hairstyles and personalities. While not always a person of great virtue, he remains nonetheless a supremely popular star amongst the changing multitude of stars in Bollywood. Sanju, the new film by Rajkumar Hirani, gives audiences the chance to experience the whole story of Sanjay Dutt from Naam till Kaante and beyond. Produced under his own banner along with Vidhu Vinod Chopra and starring Ranbir Kapoor, the music for it would seem to have to be as varied as Sanjay Dutt’s own life and thus the responsibility is put in the hands of Ar Rahman, Sanjay Wandrekar and Rohan Rohan.

The first song Main Badhiya Tu Bhi Badhiya is parody song of music from yesteryear. Sanjay Dutt’s early career seems to have been about convincing his legendary father Sunil Dutt. With this track, Sonu Nigam

Teaser Time: In Sanju Ranbir Kapoor Explores The Life Of A Bollywood Pariah

Bollywood is packed to the gills with controversial figures. From the open support of the studio system by the Mumbai underworld to frequent trysts with dirty politics, very few members of the old Bollywood system can say that their hands are completely clean. There are even fewer, though, who have been actually arrested, sentenced, and served the time for their crimes, and legendary bad boy Sanjay Dutt is one of them. To say he's led a cinematic life is an understatement. Born the scion of a filmy family with a mother who was Bollywood's biggest actress through the '50s, Nargis, and a film hero at the same time in Sunil Dutt who legend says met on the set of India's first Best Foreign Language film...
