The south film industries' obsession with casting Bollywood actors as 'villain'

CinemaWhile some say it is for business reasons, others believe it is to bring in more variety into the industry.Anjana ShekarIn Mohanlal’s Malayalam thriller Big Brother, actor Arbaaz Khan, best known for his role in the Hindi film Dabangg (a film that he also produced) played Vedantham Ips. In his blockbuster Lucifer, it was Vivek Oberoi who was the villain challenging him. In Vijay’s Tamil film Bigil that released last year, actor Jackie Shroff played Jk Sharma, President of the All India Football Federation. In the Telugu film Vinaya Vidheya Rama, actor Vivek Oberoi played Raja Bhai Munna, Bihari Kingpin. Over the years, south Indian cinema has imported many Bollywood stars to act as the villain for many reasons. Take, for instance, Sivakarthikeyan’s Hero in which Abhay Deol played Mahadev, a corrupt “corporate monster” who lobotomises young students for coming up with cool inventions. Abhay, who

Song Lyrics Tum Par Hum Hai Atke of Pagalpanti

Karti ho rani kyun itne bahaane..

Arey hum toh kasam se hain tere deewane

Haaye karti ho rani kyun itne bahaane

Arey hum toh kasam se hain tere deewane

Kyunki tum par hum hai...

(itna majboot jod hai tootega nahi)

Tum par hum hai atke yaara

Dil bhi maare jhatke.. ho..

Kyonki tum ho hatke!

Arey bachke rehna pyar mein

Pad jaaye na tujhko phatke

Kyun mere peeche bhatke!

Dil ko sambhaalo zara aag lag jaayegi

Chhedo na mujhko raja public chillayegi

Haaye public se kehna hum aashiq puraane

Aaye hain phir se hum aankhein ladaane

Kyunki tum par hum hai...

(Jeevan ke saath bhi, jeevan ke baad bhi)

Tum par hum hai atke yaara

Dil bhi maare jhatke.. ho..

Kyunki tum ho hatke!

Arey bachke rehna pyar mein

Pad jaaye na tujhko phatke

Kyun mere peeche bhatke!

Pratidwandi se haar

Sabse bada dhikkar

Naak kata kar ghar mat aana

Kehta hai pariwaar

Hmm.. ho

Hum hain barkhurdaar.. bebas aur lachaar

Jeevan ke sangharsh me hoga kaise beda-paar

Sar ooncha karne laayak

Jab tak score na karenge

Apne character ke andar

Yaaron kass ke langot

Tapasya hum ghanghor karenge

Agar langot mein hoga hole

Phatt jayega apna dhol

Jaan se pyari izzat yaaron

Izzat hai anmol mol mol mol mol

Documentary tells inspiring story of Kerala youth with brittle bone disease

InspirationThe documentary ‘Jeevanulla Swapnangal’, directed by Ritwik Baiju, tells the story of Jeevan B Manoj, for whom disability has never been an obstacle in conquering heights.CrisThe posters were printed much earlier. Stories about the documentary screening were in the papers. When the audience walked into the Kalabhavan Theatre in Thiruvananthapuram for the first screening of his film Jeevanulla Swapnangal, Ritwik Baiju stood among the crowd, nervous like any director would be before a premiere. He had wondered when he made the documentary on Jeevan B Manoj, a person with Osteogenesis imperfecta or brittle bone disease which results in fragile bones that break easily, how to keep an audience interested after the first few minutes. The posters and the papers had told half the story – here is 27-year-old Jeevan, working as a software engineer at Microsoft in Bengaluru, his disability never stopping him at any point in his life. He needn’t have worried.

A murder and an acquittal: Meet Jayesh, the inspiration for 'Oru Kuprasidha Payyan'

CinemaJayesh, on whose life the film is based, was accused of the murder of Sundariamma, a 69-year-old woman he had come to see as a mother. CrisJayesh does not have a phone. He plans to get one when his salary comes. For now, if people want to talk to him they call Afsal, his friend. And there are quite a few people calling him now. They want to know if his story is quite the same as the one in Oru Kuprasidha Payyan, the new Tovino Thomas movie. “It is,” Jayesh says. He has seen the film, remembering as he did his life from four to five years ago – working as a waiter at a wayside hotel in Kozhikode, getting arrested one day for the murder of Sundariamma, a 69-year-old woman he had come to see as a mother. Jayesh was acquitted four years ago, but wishes to this day

The 1978 Radio Times: Christmas TV, before Thatcherism ruined it

Highbrow lectures, arthouse films and a spot of Steptoe and Son – the Christmas TV and radio schedules of the 1970s were smarter, kinder and more varied than today's

"The holiday starts here. And to put you in party mood some of your favourite comedians bring the spirit of pantomime to these pages. Mike Yarwood, on our cover, opens the festivities, followed by a host of BBC TV comedians – Michael Crawford, Ronnies Corbett and Barker, John Inman, Larry Grayson (with Isla St Clair, of course), Little and Large, and last, but not least, a villainous Peter Cook."

And so begins the bumper 118-page edition of the Christmas and New Year Radio Times for 1978. The 26-page guide to BBC television and radio for 23 December 1978 to 5 January 1979 is more than just a list of programmes: it's a fascinating historical document, revealing much about the country we were that last Christmas before Thatcherism arrived and changed everything.

Framing Movies Take Twenty-Three: Amar, Akbar, Anthony (1977)

Masala brilliance thy name is personified by Manmohan Desai. Masala filmmaking is that secret ingredient to nearly every film in this wide and bountiful Hindi film industry. Of course, filmmakers disguise these elements in the social message films, the love stories, the thrillers, and countless other genre-pictures. If we want something to break up the tension of love scene, add some dishoom-dishoom, or if you want to cool that down, throw in some smart comedy. The ability to freely mix genres and tropes was expertly done in the juggernaut Amar, Akbar, Anthony (Aaa). The late 70s were the beginnings of the Amitabh Bachchan industry and Amar Akbar Anthony marked the partnership between Bachchan and Desai.

Aaa features a 25-minute prologue that stuffs in the three brothers and their parents Kishanlal and Bharati (Pran and Nirupa Roy) as they get torn apart by circumstances. Kishanlal is fresh out of jail for

My love affair with Bollywood in Bradford

In the first of two Yorkshire tributes to a century of Indian cinema, Irna Qureshi tells how a family secret became a matter of pride among friends

Indian cinema is celebrating its centenary this year. It was one hundred years ago that the country's first feature film, Raja Harishchandra was premiered in Mumbai. As Bollywood's global profile goes from strength to strength, I wager that 2013 will also be the year that many of my English friends will finally get around to watching their first Bollywood film.

My own relationship with Indian films goes back 30 years to the 1980s. Things were very different then. We watched Bollywood films at home, but we certainly didn't talk about them beyond our four walls. I think we knew deep down, that this was simply one more thing that set us apart from everyone else. And perhaps that's why I grew up with the perception

Villains in Indian Cinema

Villains in Indian Cinema
Pran Kishan Sikand

Pran Kishan Sikand dreamt of becoming a professional photographer. Little did he know that a measly, humble ‘paan’ (betel leaf) would change his life and set him on his destined path. It was 1939 or thereabouts. Pran was at a ‘paan’ shop at Lahore, enjoying a munch with his friends when a stranger approached him and asked whether he wanted to act in films. Pran was amused and asked his name. Stranger introduced himself as Muhammad Walli, a renowned film maker in the flourishing film district of Lahore. He said he was making a Punjabi film and Pran looked a perfect fit for the role of a villain in the film. Pran just brushed him off. Walli kept insisting that he pay a visit to the studio, and pushed a piece of paper with his address into Pran’s hands. The film was Yamla Jat (1940), a runaway hit that year.
