Mocking the Khans of Bollywood
Cineswami takes a dig at Shahrukh, Aamir, Salman and Saif Ali Khan and also Sanjay Dutt, while telling us about Gestures, a new silent film in Kannada and also actor Priya Anand’s entry in Aishwarya R Dhanush’s new film
Director Sairam Shanthakumar has rolled cameras on Gestures, ostensibly a Kannada film but in reality a silent film in 99 languages. Confused? Not to worry, Cineswami is at hand to explain all. The leads of the film are Dhruva Sharma and Spoorthi. Both actors are speech and hearing impaired and the film will therefore be played out in sign language with all the songs also being only in instrumental rather than vocal versions. Thought bubbles will pop up around the leads, reflecting what they are thinking at any given moment and these, being customisable, will be in 99 different languages. Click here to read more
Priya Rai is not jealous of Sunny Leone!
The newest adult star to enter Indian cinema revealed that she is not envious of pornstar-turned-actor Sunny Leone’s success

Kavita Barjatya’s Samrat and Co – definitely not Bollywood’s first detective hero!
Rajshri Productions latest character Samrat is being touted as Hindi cinema’s first detective hero. Cineswami tells you otherwise…
We received a communiqué from the Barjatyas – they of the Rajshri fame – claiming that their new production Samrat and Co is presenting Hindi cinema’s ‘first detective hero’. As George Santayana said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Let us be the first to give producer Kavita Barjatya and director Kaushik Ghatak a quick history lesson.

The ongoing celebrations in Delhi for the centenary of Indian cinema will conclude on May 3 with the presentation of the National Film Awards.

Pooja Bhatt all set to desecrate Bhupen Hazarika’s memory
Cineswami on why he thinks the Bhatts might ruin the biopic on the great artiste
We are glad that a film will be made about an Indian icon, but we are just not happy that Pooja Bhatt is making it. The Bhatt daughter eked out a career for over a decade as a mediocre actress and then proceeded to perpetrate crimes in the name of cinema as a director (we use the term loosely of course).

Sanjay Dutt: A different justice for the privileged
The Supreme Court has announced its verdict. In all its wisdom, Sanjay Dutt gets an extension of four weeks to surrender rather than the six months he requested. It is the Court’s decision and if we question it, it is tantamount to contempt of court. Therefore, let us circumvent this by concocting a hypothetical story
My name is Yasmin. I was born, an unwanted girl child, the last in a family of five, in the depths of Purulia in the state then known as West Bengal and is now named after a percussive musical instrument. Click here to read more

Sadda Haq ban: making a mockery of the CBFC
Punjabi film Sadda Haq is a cinematic look at the separatist movement in the state from the militants’ point of view and is purportedly based on true events
First of all, let us clarify that we are not referring to the AR Rahman’s hit song from Rockstar. That’s so 2011. We are talking about Mandeep Benipal’s Punjabi film Sadda Haq that was due to release last Friday but was banned at the last minute by the governments of Punjab, Haryana, Jammu & Kashmir and Delhi on the grounds that it might fan the flames of communal disharmony. This is Benipal’s second film after 2010’s superhit Ekam: Son of Soil. Sadda Haq is a cinematic look at the separatist movement in the Punjab from the militants’ point of view and is purportedly based on true events. Click here to read more
