THE LEGEND OF HERCULES to release in India on Friday 10th January 2014.


From the illustrious narratives of ancient Greek mythology where mortals and gods collide, comes the story of THE LEGEND OF HERCULES. A reimagining of the hero’s epic origins, the film approaches Hercules’ otherworldly and legendary history from the perspective of a young man struggling with his destiny.

 

Desperate to free her people from the rule of her vengeful husband and bring peace to the land, Queen Alcmene prays to the gods for guidance. She is granted a son, Hercules, by Zeus, the God of War. As his true identity remains secret, Hercules’ illegitimacy is resented by King Amphitryon, who favors his elder son, Iphicles.

 

As a young man, Hercules falls in love with the beautiful Hebe, until they are suddenly torn apart by his father’s proclamation that Iphicles shall marry the princess.  Planning to run away and marry his love, Hercules is captured by King Amphitryon’s guards and sent off to die at war. Escaping death, Hercules unites with fellow warrior, Sotiris, on a noble quest to free the kingdom from Amphitryon’s tyranny, win back his true love from his brother’s grasps, and take his place as the greatest of Greek heroes.

 

Starring Kellan Lutz in the title role, THE LEGEND OF HERCULES is a thrilling action adventure that comes to life at the hands of director Renny Harlin. With a cast of rising talent including Liam McIntyre, Gaia Weiss, Liam Garrigan, Roxanne McKee as well as Scott Adkins and Rade Serbedzija—the film grounds the ubiquitous characterizations of Hercules’ superhuman strength and courage by revealing the humanity behind the man.

Starring – Kellan Lutz, Gaia Weiss, Scott Adkins, Roxanne Mckee, Liam Garrigan, Liam Mclntyre, Rade Serbedzija.

The young guns of Bollywood – Shahid, Ranbir and Imran were trying their hand at the desi films this year.

R… Rajkumar did very well at the box office, especially with the single screen audience.

 

Shahid’s never done such an out and out masala film with intense action scenes. So for the audiences it was a refreshing change to see him in this avatar.

 

While in the songs Shahid looks charming, he has also won accolades for the high energy stunts.

Rubina wants to become a Jeannie


Rubina wants to become a Jeannie

 

“With fame and success that I have, I’m happy where I stand. But when I ask myself is this all I wanted to do? A voice comes from within that says – life’s not just about fiction, follow your heart and make your fantasies come true”, says Rubina Dilaik who believes that life’s too short to crib about miseries and big enough to transform your dreams into reality and plans into actions.

 

She has a bucket list for herself which is full of interesting and crazy things that she wants to do in life.

This pretty actress plays a Jeannie in SAB TV’s show ‘Jeannie and Juju’ and wishes to be a Jeannie in reality so that in the blink of an eye she could disappear and be in every corner of the world as she loves traveling and she truly believes in the quote that says-“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page”.  Sticking to the saying she wants travelling to be a part of every chapter of her life.

 

She wants to roam around all exotic and unheard places and live life like a native of that land to experience the real essence of that place. Catching a train from Europe to Singapore that takes two months is one of her recent whimsies.

Another thing that tops her bucket list is to perfect her Guitar playing skills. She wants to gather all her friends at a beach and sing live for them.

Well, we can’t wish for Rubina to become a Jeannie but we do wish that all her dreams are fulfilled!

 

Tune into Jeannie Aur Juju every Monday – Friday at 9:30pm only on SAB TV

Using the other negatives as clues Mitty decides to go in search of Sean O’Connell and find the missing negative.

CRITIC VIEW.

Ben Stiller has been a wizard as an actor and a maker has a remarkable history of his films, not to forget There’s something about Mary, Night at the Museum and many more this time round has hit the bull’s-eye.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is a milestone of a film, excellent performance by Ben Stiller and co actor Kristen wiig.

A simply adventurous and fantasy filled tale of an employee at Life magazine who is on a hunt for a negative[cover of the magazine’s final issue].

You

The ‘Bacardi Untameable Since 1862’, at The Kingdom of Dreams, was an event aimed to do exactly that—bring Bacardi’s unique legacy to life and celebrate the success story of the brand. 

T

he evening saw a theatrical production by

 

Terence Lewis Co. and Quasar Thakore Padamsee, where dancers enacted the unwavering resolve of the Bacardi family to succeed, despite the US Prohibition in 1920, a shattering earthquake in 1932, and the revolutionary government that seized Bacardi’s Cuban assets in 1960.


After the musical performance, guests headed to the bar to enjoy drinks, while

 

Midival Punditz performed amid enthusiastic tango sessions. 


Amongst those seen enjoying themselves were actors Neha Dhupia and Gaurav Kapoor, restauranteur AD Singh, Cosmo Editor Nandini Bhalla, designers Suneet Varma, Mandira Wirk, Varun Bahl, Gauri and Nainika, Nida Mehmood, Ruchika Sachdev, and Yogesh Chaudhary, as well as Ramola Bachchan, Amol Vadehra, Vikrum Baidyanath and many more.

The protagonist of the film is played by Abhay Deol himself and his character name is Amit Sharma.

With options similar to his traits in the film… Have you been dumped by your girlfriend? Are you pakaoed with routine? Are you stuck in a job? As his character is a person who feels that he is ‘pakaoed’ in life.

These hoardings have been plastered across the city and have creating a lot of intrigue and hype. The idea was to generate curiosity among audiences and at the same time increase relatability with the protagonist.

 
Which lead to the turn around of 50 guys whose name are Amit Sharma. 
 
The movie casts Preeti Desai alongside Abhay Deol. The movie is directed by debut director Devika Bhagat. It is set to release on 7th February 2014

The film had a bigger impact on Juhi Chawla. In a conversation with Elahe, Juhi said, “I still don’t know what to say. I haven’t seen anything like this before. I am trying to express myself and failing. I hope you understand. God bless you my dear for making a film which will impact a lot of people and their lives.”

Actual footage from sleazy C grade films used in Ashim Ahluwalia’s Miss Lovely Nawaazuddin Siddique’s


Actual footage from sleazy C  grade films used in  Ashim Ahluwalia’s Miss Lovely Nawaazuddin Siddique’s

Believe it or not, actual footage from sleazy, C-grade films has been used in Ashim Ahluwalia’s film Miss Lovely! The film has been cleared by the Indian Censor Board with an ‘Adult’ certificate.

Miss Lovely revolves around the destructive relationship between two brothers, played by Nawazuddin Siddique and Anil George, who make sleazy, C-grade films in the 1980s in Mumbai.  

Regarding the use of actual footage from C-grade films in the movie, debutant director Ashim says, “Instead of trying to recreate these sex-horror films, I just felt that it would be more authentic and genuine to use footage from real C-grade films from that era. It’s almost impossible to recreate the weirdness, wildness, and sleaziness of the original films.”

It was not an easy task to procure and use footage from old C-grade films. Ashim explains, “I had spent a lot of time researching the horror-porn industry in Mumbai so I managed to talk to producers and directors to let me use portions of their old films. We had to restore many of the original negatives as they were really damaged. They were pretty shocked that anyone could be interested in these forgotten films.”

Ashim never intended Miss Lovely to be a family film and is happy that the film has finally been cleared with a few cuts and blurs and an ‘Adult’ certificate. He says, “I wanted the audience to see Miss Lovely uncut, the way it was made. It’s not family entertainment – the subject is quite dark and there is a lot of sexuality and violence. There is some pretty wild footage from real C-grade films that we used as part of our film so an ‘Adult’ certificate is fitting for us.”

Miss Lovely has been acclaimed and applauded at the Cannes Film Festival and other prestigious film festivals worldwide. The movie stars Nawazuddin Siddique, Niharika Singh and Anil George in leading roles. It will release on January 17, 2014.
