OVERCOMING OBSTACLES – PART 1
FADE IN: EXT & INT: The Man Who Dreamt And The Man Who Dared! Bollywood has some of the most difficult barriers, mostly built by it’s self enacted gatekeepers, in any industry in any part of the globe. Filmi families, old school thinking, star fascination despite incurring a loss of Rs 3500 crore in 2009, casting couch, irrational thought processes, etc, etc. The higher the barriers, the greater...

TEEN PATTI – WASTED TALENT
Watching Teen Patti is like going to the restaurant with the best reputation and being served food with the finest ingredients, that has been very badly cooked, because the cook does not know what to do with the raw materials and the resources at her disposal.

MY NAME IS SHIBANI BHATIJA & THEN THERE WAS RIZVAN KHAN
Lets work in the reverse gear here. Now there is the film, MY NAME IS KHAN, there are the actors, the director, the song, etc. But before all this, it must have been the writer, who looked around and decided, away from all the fame and noise, perhaps in solitude or perhaps amongst people, that this story and these characters, had to be created and brought to the large screen. Here we probe that mind,...

I am sure each one of us has been through situations which we want to forget and just move on with life. Here is a movie which does exactly that; it reminds you that nobody is perfect and that we are all mortals and can and will make mistakes; we all have skeletons, be it big or small in nature, buried in our closet.
