“Secret Superstar is a heartwarming portrayal of girl power but does not go far enough” – Subhash K Jha

Secret Superstar

Starring Zaira Wasim, Aamir Khan

Directed by Advait Chandan

It is easy and comforting to get swayed by the rags-to-riches fable constructed with such contemporary diligence and zeal by first-time director Advait Chandan. But once you get to penetrate the bubble of bonhomie and get into thick of things, so to speak, you come face-to-face with an unnerving sterility.

Secret Superstar is one of those well-meaning films that keeps reminding you constantly of how well-meaning it is. Many times as I watched Advait Chandan’s panoply of tricks and treats I felt I was being offered a Christmas deal with ‘Santa’ Aamir Khan mentoring the film’s 15-year old wanna-shine Zaira Wasim whose brilliance as an actor is far more dazzling than anything that is written into this film to support her dreams.

Everyone, we are told in many different ways in this stretched-out ode to wish-fulfilment, has the right to dream.

The side effect of Bahubali 2: The Conclusion

  • indicine
Bahubali 2: The Conclusion’ is a once-in-a-lifetime film. A box office phenomenon like the S.S. Rajamouli film happens only once in a decade or two. The last time a film pushed the level of film business to an altogether different level was Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun’ and before that we’d probably have to go back as far as Ramesh Sippy’s ‘Sholay’.

But a box office storm like ‘Bahubali 2’, a film that has shattered records across the country, has both advantages and disadvantages.Read More

The Salman Khan - Sooraj Barjatya bonding goes far beyond cinema
Those who were surprised at seeing Salman Khan break down at Sooraj Barjatya's cousin Rajjat's memorial service don't know how close Salman is to the entire Barjatya family. A close friend of the actor says, "Sooraj represents everything that is good kind and humane in Salman. From the time they made their debut as leading man and director in Maine Pyar Kiya, they've shared a very spiritual relationship. Although they're the same age, Bhai looks up to Soorajji and regards his father with the same respect as his own. Yes, their friendship struck a rough patch during Hum Saath Saath Hain (when the black buck incident happened). But that's in the past now. Today Salman is closer to Sooraj and his family than ever before." Apparently Salman was "badly shaken up" by Sooraj's cousin Rajjat's death. "It is like death in his own family. Salman loves Sooraj's family as much as his own,

Heres why Salman Khan wont apologise about his rape analogy

Heres why Salman Khan wont apologise about his rape analogy
On Wednesday, Salman Khan's legal team-who have been a little disused in recent months-sprung into action and sent off a response to two prominent women's organizations for their notices to the superstar for his remark comparing his wrestling scenes in Sultan to the act of rape. Salman Khan's response was unapologetic. "Salman will not apologise for the rape remark. He never says sorry. So why is he expected to now? In the past, he has been in many sticky situations. Not a murmur of an apology when he poured a beverage on Somy Ali, his then-girlfriend and no, it wasn't in her glass. Not a hint of an apology when he banged on Aishwarya Rai's door until his hand was a bloodied pulp and neighbours' eardrums were a shattered mess. Not a tremor of a sorry when pavement dwellers came under the wheels of his posh car.

Himesh Reshammiya’s Musical year 2015!

  • Bollyspice
Last year, we bought you a review of India’s number one Rockstar Himesh Reshammiya’s year 2014. Seeing that he has had another exceptional year, we thought that we should do the same for 2015!

Himesh’s year began with the song ‘Bulbul’ for the film Hey Bro. This was the second time that he sang for a music director other than himself (remember he sang ‘Photocopy’ for the film Jai Ho) and it was the first time that he worked with music directors Nitz n Sony. While the film didn’t do too well, the song ‘Bulbul’ was well liked by his fans.

Moving on from ‘Bulbul’, there was a brief gap until the music of All is Well. A T-series film, Himesh gave three songs to this soundtrack (‘Baaton Ko Teri’ Arijit Singh, ‘Tu Mila De’ Ankit Tiwari and ‘Yolo’ Sreeram Chandra). Himesh’s three songs were very much noticed and in particular,

Scoop Deepika Padukone with Salman Khan in Sultan

Scoop Deepika Padukone with Salman Khan in Sultan
We are telling you this first. So hold on to your seats. Salman Khan and Deepika Padukone, the two hottest of the hot superstars, are likely to come together finally after two false starts. Deepika was earlier offered two Salman flicks, Sooraj Barjatya's Prem Ratan Dhan Payo and Sajid Nadiadwala's Kick. Deepika said no to both reportedly due to date issues but secretly she confessed she didn't like the roles in these films. Now we hear she may finally say yes to the third Salman offer, the much-discussed Ali Abbas Zafar's Sultan. Reports in a section of the Mumbai press insist the film will go on the floors next month without a heroine. There are also reports that there are two leading ladies to be signed in the film. Both reports are refuted by sources close to the project' "There is only one heroine's role in Sultan
