 review by



Adam Sandler’s modern day rom-com pairing himself with the never fading Drew Barrymore is a unromantic and less blended. Their chemistry on screen does no fireworks as a result giving a thumbs down to this hot properties of Hollywood.


Both play single parent Jim [Adam Sandler] a widower with three daughters and Lauren [Drew Barrymore] a divorcee with two sons go on a blind date to plan a future family together, but all goes in vain.


Next a vacation from Lauren’s friend Wendi McLendon who has a fiasco trip of Africa.But a surprise awaits when all of them reach the vacation destination as they have signed up the same trip separately and now have to spent the entire vacation by sharing their suite.


The expedition to Africa becomes alike a fairy tale trip, as love blossom with exchanging compassion towards each other kids,Lauren transforms jim’s daughter Hillary[Bella Thorne] from a tomboy to a babe and Jim coaches Lauren’s son to be a winner in a base ball game.


The movie concludes with a happy ending climax truly in a Bollywood stlye.

Irfan’s successor was Nawaz and Nawaz’s successor is Sohum Shah.

Irfan’s successor was Nawaz and Nawaz’s successor is Sohum Shah.


Bollywood industry works like a relay race where the baton of creative hands is exchanged and is passed through generations. 


Not necessarily within a film family, it can also be true for talent which is not even related. 


For example all roles that Irrfan Khan used to get couple of years ago, started going to Nawazuddin Siddiqui and all the roles that use to go to Nawazuddin Siddiqui now go to Sohum Shah. 


As actors mature and progress, they look for new excitement and challenges in their characters. Interesting what Irrfan would have like to do 5 years back was passed on to Nawaz and now Sohum


All of them are known for their unusual looks and acting prowess. 


While Irfaan is now excited with more mainstream cinema, Nawaz seems to be leaning towards edgier characters and Sohum is getting attracted to characters roles that allow him to showcase his talent.

Having composed all the songs, the makers of the movie reveal that Rahman has taken his unique music-making-process to a new level and has created something radically different from his previous compositions!

The song will take centre stage that evening and we hear from the makers that it was composed in one night, and was a result of the overnight jam session. The number has become a ‘phenomenon’ of sorts!!

Not only is the occasion a sweet twist of destiny with Rahman’s both Mumbai Bollywood concerts involving the Kapoor cousins but interestingly, Armaan is also the youngest actor in Bollywood for whom AR Rahman has lent his voice to in his movie career!

Daawat-e-Ishq shoots a sequence in Ambedkar Park in Uttar Pradesh

Aditya Roy Kapur and Parineeti Chopra’s next is the first film to get permission to shoot a sequence in Ambedkar Park in Uttar Pradesh
The upcoming Aditya Roy Kapur and Parineeti Chopra starrer has just become the first film to be shot in Uttar Pradesh’s Ambedkar Park, popularly known as Mayawati Lawns.

The film which is majorly shot in Lucknow and Hyderabad has also shot at a lot of new locations which the actors had not seen or been to previously.

The director and the creative team were very keen to shoot the film at this place as it was most appropriate for the script.

However, they had inhibitions initially as no other film had been shot there so permission could have been an issue.

But when they requested the concerned authorities for permission, they got a positive response and whoever has seen the shots has loved them.

The team was very happy to have shot there.

Who knew that the haunting flute melody, which sent fans into a frenzy for the father Jackie

Shroff in “Hero” in 1983, would resurface three decades years later to recreate history for the

son, Tiger Shroff, in Sajid Nadiadwala’s “HEROPANTI”.


The legendary melody has been superbly recreated by Manjeet Rai of Manj Musik, who under

his earlier brand name RDB, composed blockbusting melodies for many films.

Overwhelmed at still another landmark for Saregama  India Ltd., is  Business Head-Music,  Adarsh Gupta who says, “ I can cite scores of examples from

Saregama’s prized collection of premium movie tracks, from the 50’s to the 90’s, that have been chartbusters, whenever recreated, for blockbusters released

recently. But the Whistle Bajake track from Heropanti, based on the evergreen Hero tune, has surpassed all records. Its instant connect shows that the youth

believes in the golden oldies, whenever correctly and creatively represented in its new avatar. Kudos to producer Sajid Nadiadwala for identifying and

imaginatively presenting the Whistle Baja, which was a rage from the day it was released. And is today No. 1 on most charts.”


Despite his busy schedule of directing “Kick”, slated for an Eid release, Sajid Nadiadwala has been daily monitoring the pre-release preparations of “Heropanti” and was overjoyed when he learnt that “Heropanti” had achieved its 1ST landmark, prior to release, by topping the music charts. He asserts, “Belonging to a family of film-makers with a 60 years tradition, I believe in the old world charm of cinema. And the magic of music of yesteryears, if effectively energized

by today’s talent, is always an asset to a movie’s presentation & promotion.”  Earlier retro-repackaged examples like Bachna Aye Haseeno, proved its

 potential to pull an initial.


Having crossed its first landmark, Heropanti’s Whistle Baja too, will have the box-office

whistling all the way to the bank.

The Raid 2: Berandal review by ANIZ FILMVALA

The Raid 2: Berandal 

review  by




Critically acclaimed movie The Raid 2, originally an Indonesian and dubbed in English is an extremely violent and gore in visuals a brutal cinematic vision of underworld with countless mass murder and bloodshed. Written and Directed by Gareth Evans the film gives you full appetizer of an action filled with merciless killings and incineration of vengeance on a severe combative way.


A Rising gangster Bejo [Alex Abbad] assassinates Rama’s [Iko Uwais] brother Andi[Donny Alamsyah] consequently leaving him frenzied to take revenge of his brother’s death.Rama plots a passage to enter the gangs with the help of Bunawar [Cok Simbara] a cop who he can trust and unearth the nexus of police commissioner Reza [Roy Marten] with the Bangun and Goto gangs.


Uco [Arifin Putra] is the only son of gang lord Bangun [Tio Pakusadewo] as Rama tricks him to be his friend by saving his life in mayhem at the jail. As he continues to be a henchman to the Bangun’s orginaztion, Bejo [ Alex Abbad]a self-made ambitious gangster is on a trail to destroy the Japanese ganglords with Uco’s help.


A series of war triggers between the gangs as who rules the next command over the city. 


Two hours of nonstop action filled with extraordinary car chase, one on one combat martial art and a mud mob fights is something not seen in a regular action flicks. A movie strictly for hard core action frenzied audience light heart ted give a miss.

Aditya Roy Kapoor goes shopping


Aditya Roy Kapoor goes shopping

Buys a watch for his mom and 40 shirts for himself


Aditya Roy Kapoor revamped his wardrobe.


While the young actor was in the US recently he landed up going on a shopping spree.


Aditya is not a shopaholic but while he was attending an award ceremony in the US he had time on his hand. On a impromptu note Aditya decided to go shopping.


Aditya ideally wanted to buy something for his mother. He bought her a watch and at the same time he went on an extensive shopping hunt for himself.


Aditya really liked the collection there and bought about 40 – 45 shirts in a span of two days.


It is an interesting collection of printed, floral, checks and solid colored shirts.


Aditya usually wears shirts. He dresses casually and does not experiment much… but this time around he has got varied kinds of shirts.


Seems like the actor was in euphoria after having bagged an award for the best supporting actor at the award ceremony.

The event was well attended by industry patrons, actors, directors, musicians and literary personalities. Each personality left the prelude enthralled.


Said Manoj Maurya, “ When a human life undergoes the process of being reborn, it comes closer to self realization, universal truth and unveils the purpose of it’s birth. There is no correct time for a person to be reborn. This is something that is waiting at every moment to happen to you and it’s up to us to choose to be reborn at that time. This is the ethos of my exhibition and with each brush stroke this evening to the beautiful melodies that were played by the brilliant musicians present; I found myself being reborn and being transported back into a new reality.”

It made me want to get up and dance while the performance was on. I hope that the art scene will see many more such amalgamations of visual and performing arts. I’m truly happy that Manoj invited me here today and I’m looking forward to the exhibition.”


All in all, The Prelude To Reborn was a beautiful evening, leaving the audiences hungering for more. Patrons are now looking forward to the exhibition, “Reborn”, a concept very close to Manoj Mauryaa’s heart and one stemming from his own personal experiences. The painting created at The Prelude To Reborn is to be showcased at the main exhibition.
