“Varun Dhawan Outdoes Salman’s Original In Judwaa 2”- Subhash K Jha Review

  • Bollyspice
Judwaa 2

Starring Varun Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Tapsee Pannu, Anupam Kher

Directed by David Dhawan

In our country we revere the dead. And disrespect the urge to laugh and have fun. Judwaa reminds us how enjoyable frivolity in cinema can be if packaged and executed expertly.

When a 20-year-old film about identical twins caught in a rough hour traffic of endearing inanity is rebooted, we immediately start getting emotional about the old film which incidentally, was trashed on release. We even begin to treat Anu Malik’s pedestrian tunes in the original as classics.

There is news for all nostalgia addicts. Judwaa 2 is not only a more engaging ode to inanity than the original, Varun Dhawan even manages to outdistance Salman Khan’s considerable energy level in the original. Dhawan conveys a certain innocence in his body language that is the opposite of sexual candour.

The Big Sick

This modern romantic comedy about stand-up comedians generates a genuine warmth about people, the ones-who-need-people kind. Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon’s comic dramatization of the way they became a couple is a big winner, with heart-tugging performances from Nanjiani and Zoe Kazan, and fine characterizations by Holly Hunter, Zenobia Shroff, Ray Romano, and Anupam Kher.

India Fires Controversial Chief Censor Pahlaj Nihalani

India Fires Controversial Chief Censor Pahlaj Nihalani
The Indian government has sacked its chief censor Pahlaj Nihalani. His bizarre decisions had outraged the film industry against the Central Board of Film Certification, also known as the Censor Board of India.

Nahalani is to be replaced by Prasoon Joshi, a leading light in both the film and advertising industries. Urbane and approachable, Joshi has numerous script and songwriting credits on films including “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag,” “Rang de Basanti,” and “Taare Zameen Par.” He is simultaneously CEO of McCann World group India, and Asia Pacific chairman of global marketing firm McCann Erickson.

In his two and a half-year tenure at the Censor Board Nihalani’s decisions ranged between the conservative, the politically-motivated and the simply baffling. He ordered cuts to the love scenes in James Bond film “Spectre,” the banning of “Lipstick under My Burkha” on the grounds that the film about female sexuality was “lady-oriented” and might offend Muslims.

“Toilet Ek Prem Katha Is A Directorial Triumph” – Subhash K Jha Review

  • Bollyspice
Toilet : Ek Prem Katha

Starring Akshay Kumar, Bhumi Pednekar, Divyendu Sharma, Sudhir Pande & Anupam Kher

Directed by Shree Narayan Singh

There is a point of no return in the plot when we the audience become so immersed in the protagonist’s crusade for a better tomorrow that we are cheering and stomping our feet in encouragement for that bright sunshine-drenched tomorrow of which Sahir Ladhianvi dreamt in Pyasa and Phir Subah Hogi.

Our protagonist Madhav’s battle is not really reformatory in the way the great heroes of our times meant it to be. In Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Satyakam when the protagonist Dharmendra marries the rape victim he does it with the least amount of self-congratulations. In Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Akshay Kumar’s mission to build a toilet for his wife is compared with Shah Jahan building the Taj Mahal for his wife.

Anupam Kher says Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is a very important film

  • Bollyspice
Veteran actor Anupam Kher plays a fundamental role in Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. The actor believes that a film like this is the need of the hour and completely relates to it.

Kher was brought up in a family where all the members would have to use one toilet which was in an extremely poor condition. To this the actor said, “I have lived that life and I completely relate to the film. It is the need of the hour. It is extremely unfortunate that we live in the 21st century and with so much modernization our country still hasn’t managed to give all of its citizens a proper place to urinate and defecate.”

“What I really like about the film is that it is a romantic comedy that gives out such a relevant social message. There are very few film makers who can
