ajay devgn’s golmaal again to be a horror comedy? well, the posters definitely suggest that.

ajay devgn’s golmaal again to be a horror comedy? well, the posters definitely suggest that.ajay devgn and rohit shetty’s collaboration for the golmaal series are known to be power-packed action-comedies. but it seems to be a little different this time. ajay took to his social media handles today to reveal a few posters as the countdown for its trailer release tomorrow.one of the poster sees ajay along with arshad warsi, tusshar kapoor, shreyas talpade and kunal khemu being scared of something. but it gets clearer that the film will be ghost humor when we see them holding onto the nimbu-mirchi trail.well, now you know what to expect from the film.on the other hand, the next poster focuses on the big diwali release and its tagline that says, “iss diwali logic nahin sirf magic”. this time we see the entire cast of ajay, arshad, tusshar, shreyas, and kunal along with parineeti chopra and tabu as they goof around with firecrackers.ajay, who seems to be eager for tomorrow, has posted countdown posters every hour. the third poster sees the boys hiding under the table, while parineeti sits like a boss over it and tabu stands in the background giving weary looks.the last poster again sees ajay and the boys with their scared expression as they sit on a sofa that is lifted from a side. the backdrop in both these posters is of books that are flying.





birthday special: trends set by kareena kapoor khan

birthday special: trends set by kareena kapoor khanshe's done it all and she's done it well. kareena kapoor khan has not just been a commendable actor, but she's also been the ultimate trendsetter over the years. from her crazy shimmery wardrobe in kabhi khushi kabhie gham to her pastel gowns showing her baby bump, bebo has always been an inspiration to all the ladies out there. with her unparalleled confidence and unique fashion sense, kareena has sported looks that made all girls make over their wardrobe. blonde streaks and double denims, we wonder how the mismatched footwear from k3g did not become a raging trend too. she's been a voluptuous diva to the size zero hottie and now the sexiest mommy in tinsel town, kareena kapoor khan has set benchmarks for girls across the country. here's wishing the fashionista a glamorous birthday as we revisit the ways she's influenced our wardrobes over the years. 





movie review: haseena parkar

haseena parkar movie review - superficial storytelling with no grit or dramahaseena parkar reviewcast: shraddha kapoor, siddhanth kapoor, ankur bhatia, rajesh tailang, charanpreet singhdirector: apoorva lakhiaquick take: superficial storytelling with no grit or dramarating: 2 starsthere's an interesting line of dialogue in apoorva lakhia's haseena parkar, which goes to the tune of ‘mumbai mein bhai toh bahut bane, par aapa sirf ek...’ (roughly translated to: mumbai had many gangsters but only one lady don). it's the basic premise on which this movie is based. haseena parkar was the sister of dawood ibrahim and allegedly she used her blood ties with the most dreaded indian gangster in the world to establish a status and business in mumbai. its a very interesting premise. a woman who filled in the void when the gangsters ran away from mumbai. but did she do it or she didn't is the question. that's what haseena parkar the film tries to establish. but in its attempt to be pure kitsch, this film merely skims the surface of a lady who could've been india's answer to vito corleone. the film has a solid performance by shraddha kapoor but it has no emotional depth or storytelling finesse. this one's just a series of scenes stitched together with deftness of a clumsy beast.the story begins with haseena parkar (shraddha kapoor) being summoned to court as a case of extortion is registered against her. she arrives in a convoy of black and yellow taxis. a clever spin on the...

here’s why hrithik roshan is not doing more films

here’s why hrithik roshan is not doing more filmsif there is one debut in bollywood that’ll go down history – it’s hrithik roshan’s. with kaho naa... pyaar hai, hr not only stole the country’s heart but gave girls sleepless night with it.he went on to become one of the biggest superstars of the nation. but he’s not been doing too many films of late.when quizzed by a leading daily about the same and asked if he’s upto doing more films in the coming years, he said, "yes, of course. anybody would. there’s no reason for me to purposely do fewer films. why would i not want to do more films? that’s not the motive. but the motive is to find great scripts where i can do something special. i don’t want to take up everything that comes to me and then, not do proper justice to it."a couple of days back, salman khan had commented on the current box-office scenario stating that there have been few hits this year. hrithik emphasis on the point saying, "yes, there’s a huge crunch at the box office and i totally agree with what salman has said. i’m trying to do that, but i am not finding amazing films. but i’m totally open to doing at least two films every year. there’s a dearth of good stories. and we should hold ourselves responsible because we, as an industry, have not made writing aspirational. the writer is the one with whom everything starts and stops. everything happens because of the script and everything depends on that man with the pen. yet, we do n...

deepika padukone as rani padmavati is beyond epic!

deepika padukone as rani padmavati is beyond epic!we squeaked a triumphant 'yes' when deepika padukone announced yesterday that we'll get go meet rani padmavati by sunrise today.good lord, was it worth the wait or what! a couple of hours ago, deepika shared these stunning posters of her in and as padmavati. while you read this she's trending on #1 everywhere right now and rightly so. these posters are so stunning, impactful and mesmerising. looks like sanjay leela bhansali has crafted a masterpiece yet again. or is it too early to tell? guess not! while the marvelling over these continues, we can't wait to see what's in store for is with the looks of the leading men of the magnum opus - shahid kapoor as king ratan singh and ranveer singh as the menacing allaudin khilji. padmavati is ranveer and deepika's third film with slb after ram leela and bajirao mastani. and it's shahid's first with the maestro. as far as deepika's look in this poster is concerned, the unibrow stands out and we won't be surprised if the meme world makes kajol join the party. a picture of dp in somewhat this kind of a royal look went viral yesterday but soon we found out that it was from a commercial shoot. all in all, padmavati might just be the best film of the year ... since 2017 itself is a flop at the ticket windows. sigh. padmavati and december brighten up our year, already!
