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


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


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
