    Bhaag Milkha Bhaag tax-free status helps box office collections

    The Milkha Singh biopic has been exempted from entertainment tax in four Indian states
    Helping its box office run, Bollywood biopic Bhaag Milkha Bhaag is getting tax incentives from state governments in India. Several states seem to be tripping over each other to exempt entertainment tax on the film about India’s Olympic athlete Milkha Singh.

    Is there a point to ‘Nanban’?

    Is there a point to ‘Nanban’?

    This past weekend, Cineswami was importuned to watch the latest Vijay vehicle Nanban, it being Sankranti/Pongal. Obviously, the whole world and its canine friend knows that the film is a remake of Rajkumar Hirani’s 3 Idiots and the same world dwellers and their barking brethren would have seen the Hindi film
    Apparently not, as our friends in Kollywood purchased the Tamil remake rights and entrusted the reins to Shankar, the biggest Indian director. Upon watching the film, the first thing that strikes you is how incredibly lazy it is. Apart from a few song picturisations, which themselves feel cut and pasted from past Shankar triumphs, there is absolutely nothing new in Nanban, if you have watched 3 Idiots that is. The plot is exactly the same, the dialogue appears to have been translated from the Hindi by a machine and what’s worse, for much of the film it’s a shot by shot rendering. Clearly, Shankar the director was on a break from making two Rajinikanth films back to back and having too good a time to put his own stamp on Nanban. Click here to read more

    Move over Bollywood, south rules Indian entertainment

    Move over Bollywood, south rules Indian entertainment

    The four southern states together account for more than half of India’s 10,000 movie screens
    Bollywood may hog the limelight but the quiet and industrious south Indian entertainment industry is the real growth driver for the Indian film industry and also the creative bellwether, given the sheer number of south Indian films remade in Hindi. That’s quite an achievement for a region accounting for just four of India’s 28 states – Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala – and a union territory, Pondicherry. These grand statements are not just narrow regionalism; they are borne out by a joint report on the south Indian industry compiled by the Federation of the Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) and research firm Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India.
