  • Bollyspice
The much awaited biopic of India’s most successful cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, titled M.S Dhoni – The Untold Story is set to now release on the last Friday of September.

The film which was earlier to release on September 2nd, 2016, now has a new release date viz. 30th September 2016.

India’s Reliance Entertainment Unveils Plan C Joint Venture

India’s Reliance Entertainment Unveils Plan C Joint Venture
Akshay Kumar-starring period drama, “Rustom,” directed by Tinu Suresh Desai is set to be the first movie produced by Plan C Studios, a joint venture between Reliance Entertainment and Shital Bhatia’s Friday Filmworks.

The 50:50 joint venture marks the further return of Reliance, the Indian conglomerate that has backed Steven Spielberg, into Indian film-making. The company, once poised to be India’s largest movie enterprise, sold off its cinemas, post-production businesses and its TV joint ventures.

It also scaled back its Indian movie activities, only to plunge back in again in a manner designed to better share risk. In March, last year it joined as a partner in Phantom Films, a production house backed by filmmakers Anurag Kashyap, Vikas Bahl, Vikramaditya Motwane and Madhu Mantena. That venture is managed by Phantom.

In recent months Reliance has been attached to international projects. In September production got under way on

When Neeraj Pandey got thrown out for a theatre

When Neeraj Pandey got thrown out for a theatre
The great writer William Shakespeare once said, "What's in a name?". Well... ask Neeraj Pandey. The last couple of days saw the name of 'Neeraj Pandey' trending. In Bollywood, the name of 'Neeraj Pandey' is synonymous as the very man who gave us blockbuster films like Baby, Special 26, A Wednesday etc. But, when a certain news of Neeraj Pandey thrown out of the theatres for not standing up on the national anthem had appeared in one of the publications, it shocked the entire tinsel town fraternity. Everyone got a breather when the truth finally surfaced. It so happened was that there was a 'common man' (a 26 year old hailing from Kandivili) who shared the same name as 'Neeraj Pandey' and it was him who was thrown out of a suburban theatre for not standing up during the national anthem. A spokesperson from the 'real' Neeraj Pandey

Box Office – Baby and Dolly Ki Doli keep the momentum going over the weekend

  • Bollyspice
It was expected that the coming together on Baby and Dolly Ki Doli would heat up the box office on Friday itself, considering the kind of credentials involved. Though there were no fireworks per se on the opening day as both films didn’t really go on to set the box office on fire, the good part was that the reviews were good. This meant that for the four day long weekend, the Akshay Kumar as well as Sonam Kapoor starrer went on to show jump in collections on a day by day basis.

Let’s talk about Baby first. The film is clearly one of the most acclaimed films of not just the current season but last few years. In fact for Akshay Kumar, this is easily the most appreciated film since one can remember. The film has fetched him rave reviews like never before and while one could

Joining in on the action of the slick, espionage thriller are stars Rana Daggubati, Danny Denzongpa, Kay Kay Menon, Rashid Naz, and Taapsee Pannu.

Baby Music Review

  • Bollyspice
Baby is Neeraj Pandey’s second outing with Akshay Kumar and his third with Anupam Kher after Special 26 and A Wednesday respectively. It also stars Rana Daggupati (Dum Maaro Dum) and Tapsee Pannu (Chasme Badoor) in pivotal roles.

Arguably, Baby is a film that does not need songs, but a short 4-track album accompanies it all the same. However, it is 4 less then the number of tracks featured in Special 26, which indicates that Pandey does appreciate that his kind of cinema can do without songs.

Baby features compositions from Meet Bros Anjjan (Kick) and Mm Kreem (Special 26) with lyrics by Manoj Muntasir.

The album commences with Beparwah, a welcome departure from Meet Bros Anjjan’s earlier offerings. The engaging orchestrations coupled with Apeksha Dandekar’s powerful rendition of Muntair’s aptly penned lyrics make it for a good listen. Unfortunately, the Mba Swag version of the track is unremarkable.

Introducing the Powerful Brigade from Neeraj Pandey’s next Baby

  • Bollyspice
Neeraj Pandey’s forthcoming film Baby which is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar (T-Series) along with Shital Bhatia, Cape of Good Films & Crouching Tiger brings back the powerful trio together of Director Neeraj himself, Akshay Kumar & Anupam Kher (who gave us Special 26), and joining them as an intriguing ensemble cast are actors Rana Daggubati & Danny Denzongpa.

Those wondering as to the memorably curious movie title of Baby, there is a significant reason why this title has been attached to the film, but currently the makers want to keep it a close guarded secret and let it come out at the right time!!

While the trio’s last flick was high on suspense, Baby will showcase high octane and adrenaline pumping speed action sequences!

We present to you the first look of all the actors from the film together.

Sonali Cable Music Review

  • Bollyspice
Sonali Cable is writer-director Charudatt Acharya’s maiden voyage, being one of the 8 scripts selected for Mumbai Mantra-Sundance Institute Screenwriters Lab 2012. It stars Rhea Chakraborty (Meri Dad Ki Maruti), Ali Fazal (Bobby Jasoos) and Anupum Kher (A Wednesday) in pivotal roles. It also marks the debut of Dance India Dance finalist Raghav Juyal.

The soundtrack features compositions from various music directors including Raghav Sachar (‘Kabul Fiza’) and Mike McCleary (Nautanki Sala).

Sonali Cable is produced under the banner of Ramesh and Rohan Sippy and hits cinemas 10 October 2014.

Ek Mulaqat Ho kicks of the album, a well composed track by Amjad-Nadeem of the Ankit Tiwari and/or Jeet Ganguly disposition. Jubin Nautiyal’s superior vocals more than make up for Sameer’s simplistic lyrics. He has a beautiful classical quality yet blends in with the rock ballad like style of the track brilliantly. The unplugged version is equally good. Unfortunately, Altamash
