Salman Khan With Race 3 Becomes The First Actor To Hold This INVINCIBLE Record!

Khan will next be seen in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat which also stars Priyanka Chopra, Disha Patani and Sunil Grover in pivotal roles.

Salman Khan’s Eid release is out and fans have reciprocated the love. In just three days Race 3has managed to collect a massive 106.47 croresin India theaters alone. The superstar has rightfully earned the title of ‘Blockbuster Khan’ and ‘The King Of 100 Crore Club’ as Race 3 is Salman’s 13th consecutive 100 crore film.
This trend started way back with super fun cop Chulbul Pandey seen in Dabangg. The film collected a total of 138.88 croresin its lifetime which is very impressive considering it was 2010. Then 2011 saw two films namely Ready and Bodyguardbringing in a sum total of 120 croresand142 crores respectively. After this each year Salman has managed to pump out an average of two movies per year. In 2012 the fans saw him in a spy thriller Ek Tha Tiger which brought in 198 croresand the sequel to Dabangg which collected 158.50 crores. 2013 was a break year as Salman did not come out with any films.
With Jai Ho in 2014, the film is Salman’s lowest 100 crore film managing to accumulate 111 crores. Although withKick, Salman was back on track and minted a cool total of 233 crores. 2015 was a superhit year for the star as bothBajrangi Bhaijaan and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo amassed totals above 200 crores. The critically acclaimed Bajrangi Bhaijaanbringing in a colossal 320.34 crores and magnum opus Prem Ratan Dhan Payomanaging to collect 207.40 crores. The next year Salman again shocked audiences with another critic approved film Sultan which comfortably crossed the 300 crore mark. 2017’s Eid releaseTubelight became a disappointment but somehow managed to collect a modest121.25 crores but the next Tiger Zinda Haihit the ball out of the park and is Salman Khan’s highest-earning blockbuster collecting a massive total of 339.16 crores.

This year, we have two new hosts to take us through the musical event of IIFA Rocks – Ayushmann Khurrana and Kartik Aaryan. The young and dynamic duo have made a mark with their unique choice of films and a sensational fan following. Ayushmann has been hosts to quite a few Bollywood events earlier, including an earlier edition of IIFA in 2012. This year, he will be back on stage with his anchoring skills. Kartik Aaryan, on the other hand, is a fresh face on the IIFA stage and this year will be his debut as a host to Bollywood’s biggest event.

Adding a unique charm to the IIFA Rocks, we have the celebrated composer and music director Pritam enthralling us at IIFA 2018. Pritam had performed at earlier editions of IIFA and this year also, he is all set to sweep the audience off their feet with his music.  Known for his eclectic compositions, Pritam will be bringing a lot of new melodies to the event. This year he will present some interesting pieces he has created with local Thai musicians and their traditional instruments. With innovative music, Pritam’s performance would be surely something to look forward to.

One of the most vibrant sections of the IIFA Rocks Night is the Green Carpet, where you can spot your favorite celebrities and B-town legends in their most dazzling avatar. Every year, the leading names of Indian movie industry walk down the Green Carpet at IIFA, donning the most exclusive ensembles you would ever see, amidst thousands of cheering fans and media. This year, we are looking forward to yet another evening of a luxurious affair.

 

Applauding and awarding the winners of the Technical Category

One of the most significant arms of movie production, the technical teams contribute to what makes or breaks a movie. A movie is only good as its screenplay, dialogues, and story. Fine cinematography, editing, sound design, and special effects can define a great final output. Similarly, good music and impactful lyrics, coupled with a powerful voice make the songs of the movie memorable. At IIFA 2018, we had a wide range of technical nominations who ensured an incredible result with their work, and we arrived at the following winners-

Tiger Zinda Hai bagged two awards in the Technical Category with the best cinematography and sound design and was followed by Rajkumar Rao-starrer Newton for best editing. The much-anticipated Jagga Jasoos was at par with three awards for best special effects, best choreography, and best background score. The other winners of Technical awards were Bareilly ki Barfi, Secret Superstar, Jab Harry met Sejal, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, and Baadshaho.

The Myntra Fashion Show

Bollywood and fashion go hand in hand and it’s been that way since the early days of the industry. Therefore, it’s only justified that an iconic fashion brand like Myntra would showcase itself at Bollywood’s most coveted event. For two consecutive years, Myntra has been the official style partner for IIFA. Taking this partnership a step further, Myntra unleashed its new launches with a stunning fashion show in New York last year. This year, at the IIFA Awards in Bangkok, Myntra will enthrall the audience with yet another show-stopping fashion walk, graced by leading models, fashionistas, and celebrities.

In all, with melodious music, a glittering green carpet and an exciting fashion show, the IIFA Rocks Night of 2018 will make for a memorable night!

So far, only one track has been released ‘Main Badhiya Tu Bhi Badhiya’ which features Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor in the video.

According to the latest interview by a news agency, Salman Khan is not happy with the last portion of the trailer.

Soon after the trailer launch, some really rib-tickling Sanju memes started floating on the internet. Have a look.

We are proud to screen a modest film from the small country of Nepal, which created a mega impact around the world

This is WHITE SUN, the second feature film of young director Deepak Rauniyar, which won an award at the prestigious Venice International Film Festival, went to top festivals like Toronto, Rotterdam, Edinburgh, and created waves at nearly 70 festivals around the world. It was also Nepal’s nomination for the Oscars in 2016.

White Sun is the rare example of a stark film that discusses complex social, political, personal issues, with simple ease and startling honesty. The movie opens with the death of the head of a remote village, and traces his steep funeral journey down the picturesque mountainside.
Among the chief pall-bearers, are his two sons who have become estranged due to political differences- Suraj, who lived with his father and worked in the army, Chandra, who left home and joined the Maoist rebels.

The funeral brings him back to his village, after a decade. But the differences are still deep with his brother, and the old villagers.
There is also Durga, the woman Chandra married before he left, and who strongly ran the whole household, until the death, when her gender made her an outsider. Finally, there are the two children Badri and Pooja, who get caught in the maelstrom of the funeral drama.
Even as the radio-report of the country’s first Constitution brings hope to the people, it is obvious that at the individual level, the scars of the long Civil War still remain.

The director, who took four years to make the film, uses the metaphor of death to bring alive many burning issues- political unity, social casteism, women’s rights,
children’s education. The film is studded with symbols, starting with the lead-cast’s names. But it is all dealt with gentle irony and wry humor which is what makes this film accessible and enjoyable, and also moving and meaningful. Whether he deals with Maoist guerillas, Nepali police, Civil War, social weddings or funerals, the director’s sharp eye and clever vision are impeccable.

The performances are another highlight of the film, not just from the superstar protagonist Chandra, but the many unprofessionals, including the old villagers and the two incredible kids.
White Sun is an amazing cinematic achievement for a young director from a small nation, which hugely raises the bar for Asian Cinema.

Swara Bhasker’s masturbation scene in Veere Di Wedding gets an EXORCISM twist and it’s hilarious – watch video

Veere Di Wedding is doing a very good business at the box office. Barring a few negative reviews, the buddy comedy has majorly received positive responses. It is the first women-centric movie to have such a great opening. The movie stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam K Ahuja, Shikha Talsania and the woman of the hour, Swara Bhasker. Swara gets few of the best lines in the movie and one ‘pathbreaking’ scene. In the movie, there is a scene where her character pleasures herself. Umm… she masturbates. Yes, women do it too. Get over it. It’s 2018.

The said scene has not only helped Swara garner praises for being bold enough to do that. But from the other end of the spectrum, she is receiving a lot of flak as well. Trolls are having a baller time doing their job and taking digs at this scene. Well, coming to the point we came across a rather hilarious take on Swara’s masturbation scene from Veere Di Wedding. We don’t know whether the person who edited this is a troll or just a fan with a sense of humour, but we thought the video is quite funny.

The editor has stitched together the Veere Di Weddingscene with a certain B-grade looking Hindi horror film’s exorcism scene. The output is hilarious:

Veere Di Wedding made more money on Sunday than it did on Saturday and Friday. In total, in its opening weekend, the movie has managed to earn Rs 36.52 crore. It has beaten Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, Raazi, 102 Not Out, October, etc. The only movies it is behind are Baaghi 2, Raid, Pad Man, Padmaavat. Well, a women-led film being in top 5 opening weekend grossers is quite a big feat for Indian cinema.

Bhavesh Joshi Superhero movie review: Harshvardhan Kapoor is sincere in an intriguing film

Harshvardhan Kapoor’s film is darker than any other Hindi superhero film you have seen. It’s earnest and deals with the idea of vigilante justice in its raw form. Here’s our movie review of Bhavesh Joshi Superhero.

Bhavesh Joshi Superhero
Cast: Harshvardhan Kapoor, Priyanshu Painyuli, Nishikant Kamat
Director: Vikramaditya Motwane
Rating: 3/5

Be it Krrish or A Flying Jatt, a strong sense of personal loss has never been the hallmark of the Hindi superhero films. They never came out of the shadow of their western counterparts. Their villains were caricatures and their crusades were designed to mostly impress children, their core viewers. On that account, Bhavesh Joshi Superhero is indeed the right step in terms of a mature presentation and setting the agenda right.
Watch: Reviews of Veere Di Wedding and Bhavesh Joshi Superhero.

Bhavesh Joshi Superhero is darker than any other Hindi superhero film you have seen. It’s earnest and deals with the idea of vigilante justice in its raw form. The transformation of a common person into a warrior has been captured with sincerity. You root for Bhavesh Joshi while watching him from a distance. He hasn’t done anything substantial yet to impact your life, but he appears genuinely concerned.

What begins as a discussion about DC being better than Marvel turns into a personal challenge for three Mumbai friends. Bhavesh Joshi (Priyanshu Painyuli) and Sikander Khanna (Harshvardhan Kapoor) believe that the struggle for a better society starts with them. Their own conducts should be honest at any cost. Rajat (Ashish Verma) is a neutral spectator whose sympathies are with the other two. In a way, he represents the audiences and it is apt that he plays an aspiring graphic novel writer in the film.
Bhavesh and Sikander launch Insaaf TV, a digital platform, where they put up their anti-corruption videos. These videos are mostly about stopping people from urinating on the road or cutting the trees until they encounter a powerful water mafia.
This changes their lives and makes them understand the futility — and the need — of their war and its methods. Now is the time to take a leap of faith, but will they be able to do it?

The director, Vikramaditya Motwane (Udaan, Lootera, Trapped), has used a politically charged and unstable time as the backdrop of Bhavesh Joshi Superhero. He understands the importance of independent social media and the emergence of responsible youth. More than the roads, this fight takes place on the internet. First, it awakens the conscience of the viewers and then it compels them to take a stand in the real world.

Actually, this is where it becomes an Indian superhero film. The sense of community and the welfare of the local people is high on its priority. The world can be saved later.

It talks about small things like jumping the red light or bribing for the passport. Thankfully, it doesn’t decide to deliver long sermons and conveys its ideas through everyday conversations. Probably Motwane wants to put the onus on the common people for all their miseries and its solutions.
Things escalate quickly in order to provide pace to the screenplay. This unsettles the actors initially. They don’t find the right emotional trajectory, but Motwane manages it with some well choreographed action scenes. Assisted by a thrilling background score and gliding camera, you want to whistle for the Insaaf-Man when he appears for the first time.
Unfortunately, he gets back to his cocoon just when you wanted him to go full throttle. This might have made him look human, but it stops the natural progression of a vigilante hero.
Then there are characters that appear more comic than menacing. They don’t help much in making the steely resolve of Bhavesh Joshi visible. Harshvardhan’s perplexed expressions add to the confusion.
The one thing which works in Harshvardhan’s favour is the thought of not giving him any weapons or gadgets. His casual attitude establishes his immediate connect with the audience. His limitations are projected as his strengths, but that works both ways. Harshvardhan generates more sympathy than empathy.

 

Also, the film stretches for no apparent reason. A shorter version could have been a better prelude to more films in the franchise. The over-the-top villainy further dampens the spirit of a realistic superhero film.

But all said and done, Motwane breaks into new territories with his innovative take on superhero films. Bhavesh Joshi Superhero has its heart in the right place and its tone is totally indigenous. Harshvardhan Kapoor has come up with an honest performance. At 155-minute, Bhavesh Joshi Superhero has a lot to offer.
