‘Rang Laal’ from Force 2 exudes India’s power to strike back!


vvsdv

Force 2 starring John Abraham, Sonakshi Sinha and Tahir Bhasin has been creating immense buzz and anticipation among the audiences. It is one of the biggest action franchises today, possessed by Bollywood.

Their recent song ‘Rang Laal’ has struck a chord with the audiences.

The track, which reflects India’s resilience, is a tribute to our unsung heroes, who sacrifice their lives without giving second thoughts to whether their efforts will ever be recognized.

The promotional video with the tag line- India strikes back, encapsulates that our country will fight back, if provoked.

The songs hard hitting lyrics like “Ek thappad maroge toh sau thappad maarenge, Aankh uthake dekhoge toh todh denge phod denge yeh huamara wada hai” leaves the audiences with goosebumps and gives us a reason to think and fight back.

 

‘Rang Laal’ awakens the youth and invokes patriotism among the audiences, while gifting ‘Force’ an all new wave of brand leverage.

The makers have also dedicated the trailer to our martyrs. In fact, it begins with a slide, which reads: “Dedicated to the heroes who sacrificed their lives for the country and yet remained unnamed and unrecognized.“ The trailer, which is perhaps the first in Bollywood to recognize the selfless sacrifice of our soldiers, has already received a good response on social media.
The team will be visiting Amar Jawan Jyoti in Delhi in the coming week, to voice their request and spread awareness, before taking the petition to the government.

Presented by Viacom18 Motion Pictures in association with Sunshine Pictures Pvt.Ltd. and JA Entertainment Pvt. Ltd, Force 2 produced by Vipul Amrutlal Shah and John Abraham, directed by Abhinay Deo, is all set to release on 18 November, 2016.

Here comes Neeraj Pandey’s first short film.


 

Ouch! yes that’s the name of Neeraj Pandey’s first short film ever.

The short film titled ‘Ouch’ stars Manoj Bajpayee and Pooja Chopra in the lead role. The very versatile actor Manoj and the former Miss India Pooja has done full justice to their characters and have blunged into it. It is a humorous film but has a real take on ethics and whats the right way.

The time span of the short film is 15 mins and both the identities (Vinay and Priya) have made the audience fall in love with the short film as they have blend into their roles.

Just like the title, the script of the film too is very unique and definitely director Neeraj Pandey has chosen an interesting pairing for the characters to be played.

After achieving immense success for M.S Dhoni -The Untold story, Neeraj who has made a short film for the very first time seems like to have a towering response for his work and certainly seems like it was a cake walk for the director.

The short film is about how Vinay and Priya who are in love since 3 years and their passion has brought them to a point where they have to take a call on their relationship status and thats when Vinay gets hit with an ‘Ouch’ moment.

Neeraj Pandey’s ‘Ouch’ was premiered at the Mumbai Film Festival, a forum that’s known for showcasing the best of films in front of a demanding audience. It sure is an achievement in itself for the director as his first short film was premiered at the JioMAMI film festival.

The director seems to have a great start to his new endeavor and the audience undoubtedly are looking forward to more such short films.

Neeraj said while talking about his film,  “The story of Ouch is an amalgamation of human emotions and feelings. As the story unfolds, it is interesting to see what a man and woman who are having an affair outside of their marriages do or not do to be with each other. I approached the story with a contemporary Indian outlook and the way Manoj and Pooja have brought the sentiments alive through their characters, it is commendable. As a filmmaker, it is very important to be able to showcase your work freely and I believe Royal Stag Barrel Select Large Short Films is a great platform that lets you be as creative as possible.”

Actress Pooja Chopra says, “To work with Neeraj Pandey had been a wish I had been living with for a while now as I was to work with him on Baby but somehow unfortunately that didn’t fall into place at the 11th hour, and this one came up.. there wasn’t anyway I would have missed out on this one. I’ve always admired his body of work and now more so after working with him I have immense respect and admiration for him as a film maker and more so as a person”

Royal Stag Barrel Select Large Short Films’ has delivered many short films and now they had a come back with Neeraj Pandey’s “Ouch”.

“Those who want to go to Kathmandu and can’t afford a plane fare are going to have a spectacular trip for the price of a cinema ticket!” -Tilda Swinton speaks on Doctor Strange


bdfbdvsdvsd

Actress Tilda Swinton who’s gearing up as the ‘Ancient One’ in Doctor Strange prepared for the physical demands of the role by working with the talented stunt team and a group of extraordinary martial artists as well as with Julian Daniels who taught her hand movements: the extraordinary ‘tutting,’ of which he is a celebrated master. Commenting on the experience, she says, “It was like being at a most delicious school. We were learning all these things that we would never otherwise have learned. You want to do something that draws on certain disciplines or certain traditions but at the same time you want to do something that’s never been done before. You want to make it original and the fight directors have done a phenomenal job of creating a particular style of fighting that only people who have studied under The Ancient One in Kamar-Taj will know.”

 

For Swinton, working with the cast was a real pleasure.“Marvel generally casts rocking people,” she says. “To be honest, I think we are just lucky to be the next band on the roster and it is a great band to be a part of. They’re all great and we’re all so psyched to be a part of making this film. That makes such a difference, to feel like a team of lucky people grateful together.”

 

Tilda Swinton says the film is a full on rollercoaster ride…..she says,“It’s a wild ride. For those who are interested in the ‘geekery’ of special effects, they’re going to have a field day. It’s going to be a real thrill. Those who are interested in a human story about digging deep and finding a way to live your life that has real meaning where you live in service to humankind and you’re not just a total selfish bastard, they’ll be very happy. And those who want to go to Kathmandu and can’t afford a plane fare are going to have a spectacular trip for the price of a cinema ticket!” 

Doctor Strange starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton releases on 4th November

Sunny Leone sends out a message on Breast Cancer


IN THE WAKE OF BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH, SUNNY LEONE URGES FOR AN EARLY DETECTION AS AN EARLY CURE FOR THE RISING BREAST CANCER CASES IN INDIA.

Apart from October being known for the famous Oktober fest in Europe, in India we wish to stand for something more significant. For the uninitiated, October is observed as ‘International Breast Cancer Awareness Month’.

As part of its Public Service Campaign, AurDikhao, a digital media channel in association with Dr Aneel Murarka and Manish Murarka – promoters of Ample Missiion Events Entertainment and more LLP have developed a full-fledged campaign called #DetectToDefeat.

The campaign features renowned Bollywood Sunny Leone giving an appealing message looking in the mirror. The video also features various characters a women interacts with on a day-to-day basis who go has to deal with perverts who stare at her breasts.

Research says breast cancer is one of the fastest rising cancer types amongst women. More than half of the cases are detected in stage 3 or 4, thus inhibiting any chances for cure. According to data prepared by Breast Cancer India, the number of young people being diagnosed with breast cancer is on the rise. 25 years ago, out of 100 patients, only 2% were between 20-30 years old and 7% were between 30-40 years old. Currently, 4% are between  20-30 and 16% are between 30-40 years old.

“In February this year, Sunny featured in our viral anti-smoking campaign titled ‘11 Minutes’ that received 4 million hits in 4 days. We had great time working with her. She’s an absolute sport and in the whole process she’s as much part of the campaign as we are. When we pitched this idea to her, she was excited to work on this campaign. Given her stature as a public influencer, her endeavour will definitely create impact among the people for the breast cancer awareness. We hope men and women will spread this to loved ones leading to call for action” said Aditya Bhat, Founder of Business Of Ideas that manages digital channel Aur Dikhao.

The campaign, in association with Facebook initiated updating their profile pictures with a breast cancer badge- pink ribbon along with a message Detect To Defeat. Sunny was amongst the first to update her profile picture to support the cause.

Tum Bin 2’s 007 connection


nfnf.jpg

‘Tum Bin 2’, the romantic saga is already creating waves across the country and fans are eagerly awaiting for the film’s release. And now there is something  more that all the fans can watch out for in the film.

The quintessential romantic sequence, had to have the best location to go along the mood of the film. Although it was a difficult challenge for the makers of the film to create a perfect romantic aura for the film, Anubhav Sinha, the director of the film, while doing the recce, drove for several hours from Glasgow to Glencoe in search of a suitable venue in Scotland.

Coincidentally, he chose the same spot that was used to film a dramatic sequence for ‘Skyfall’ that starred Daniel Craig and Judi Dench. The scene in ‘Tum Bin 2’ features newcomer Aditya Seal, who did not want to miss the opportunity of taking a picture at the iconic spot. The sequence was shot on a bright sunny day with clear skies unlike the one with dreary sky in ‘Skyfall’. The popular road is now called the ‘Skyfall road’.

As Anubhav recollects, it was one of the most memorable experience of the entire shoot schedule.

Tum Bin 2, which is  jointly produced by Bhushan Kumar and Anubhav Sinha, who has also written & directed the film is set to release on 18th November 2016.

Lipstick Under My Burkha – Trailer


All set to premiere at the prestigious Tokyo Film Festival as well as the Mumbai Film Festival, the first trailer for Lipstick Under My Burkha released online today. Directed by Alankrita Shrivastava and produced by Prakash Jha, the film stars Konkona Sensharma, Ratna Pathak Shah, Aahana Kumra and Plabita Borthakur in lead roles along with Sushant Singh, Vikrant Massey, Shashank Arora, Vaibbhav Tatwawdi and Jagat Singh Solanki.

The film follows four feisty women, from the bustling bylanes of old Bhopal, secretly chasing their dreams and rebelling in small ways against the conventional identities they are boxed in. Through the colourful prism of the double lives of these women, Lipstick Under My Burkha explores the many shades of female desire.

“As women we often have secret dreams, nurtured by the pulpy romantic fantasies that we discover through films, books, songs and things we see around us. But there is a deeper desire that is perhaps inherent in our very beings. That is what I have tried to explore through the film,” says director Alankrita Shrivastava.

Producer Prakash Jha adds: “There is love and sex, romance and heartbreak, ambition and passion. But most of all, the film is about the small dreams of these four women, who are trapped in the claustrophobia of their lives. In the dichotomy between tradition and modernity, what happens to female desire- and how long can it be contained? This story was so compelling that I knew it had to be made.”

The cast, including National Award winning actor Konkona Sensharma are all excited and upbeat about the film. Konkona says: “It is rare to get to work on a film that explores what women want, and does so with lightness, humour and colour. I am looking forward to everyone watching it!”

Lipstick Under My Burkha will screen at MAMI on the 26th of October.
