    Vijay in & as AIADMK’s ‘Kaavalan’!

    Vijay in & as AIADMK’s ‘Kaavalan’!

    J Jayalalithaa must be smiling a lot. Endorsing her party with an assertive thumbs-up is none other than the Ilayathalapathy (Young Commander) of Kollywood, Vijay
    Rumours were rife about such a turn of events ever since Vijay met the AIADMK supremo fairly recently. This move attains great significance especially since it comes at a time when mighty superstars like Rajinikanth go weak in the knees at the very mention of a political entry.

    Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro movie review: Revisiting the classic

    Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro movie review: Revisiting the classic

    The 1983 classic that re-released this weekend is relevant even today with its funny take on corruption and politics

    Mamata Banerjee: How about a Bollywood movie on her life?

    Mamata Banerjee: How about a Bollywood movie on her life?

    Cineswami has a new passion – the lovely Mamata-di of Poschim Bongo, and he says there should be a film on the politician
    You might be wondering, gentle reader, as to why the spectre of politics is disgracing these pages meant to carry graceful accounts of the altogether more noble, if not clean, entertainment industry. Not to worry, Cineswami will provide a connection, however specious it may be. Straight off the bat, if the likes of Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna, Dharmendra, Govinda and Jaya Prada can have political links, certainly Cineswami can. That’s not even looking at highly politicised Tamil Nadu, where every single chief minister since 1967 has either been an actor, actress or screenwriter. And Andhra Pradesh was ruled by the late, great NTR. But, we digress. We must return to the object of Cineswami’s passion, the lovely Mamata-di. The graceful lady swept away more than three decades of communist rule in West Bengal and proved the power of democracy by winning with a brute majority. Click here to read more

    SHANGHAI trailer: Emraan Hashmi and Abhay Deol in a never-seen-before avatar

    SHANGHAI trailer: Emraan Hashmi and Abhay Deol in a never-seen-before avatar

    Watch the trailer of Dibakar Banerjee’s new and experimental film…and react like we did!
    If you have watched Dibakar Beanerjee’s deliciously off-the-beaten-track films like Khosla Ka Ghosla, Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! and the critically much-acclaimed hyper-linked (multi-level action cinema) LSD: Love, Sex Aur Dhokha, you will probably know the kind of non-formulaic films this talented director makes for the audience. In a fresh foray, he presents yet another gritty tale in his upcoming film Shanghai, starring Abhay Deol, Emraan Hashmi and Kalki Koechlin. Click here to read more

    Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Aarakshan’ in deep political trouble

    Amitabh Bachchan’s ‘Aarakshan’ in deep political trouble

    Aarakshan worked up a storm in the political arena. The movie got banned in one state after another. Here’s how the director, Prakash Jha handled the whole affair
    Politics and films are not friends, as we are seeing now. Prakash Jha’s Aarakshan was grabbing headlines every day as the plot got thicker and murkier. The movie promos hinted at murky politics. If you’ve not watched the movie, you can take a look right here on YouTube Boxofice. Politicians in north India were milking the film’s controversial theme to suit their own agendas. Mayawati in Uttar Pradesh and the Punjab government had banned the screening of Aarakshan in the state. To make things even more messy, the entire scheduled caste-scheduled tribe lobby is up in arms about reported scenes and a part of the story line that talks about the minority communities.  Click here to read more
