On 30th May, just a month before its release, the trailer of Sanju was launched by the makers at a grand event in Mumbai.

Salman Khan not happy with Sanju trailer?

According to the latest interview by a news agency, Salman Khan is not happy with the last portion of the trailer. He believes that the last 8-10 years of the biopic should have been played by Sanjay Dutt himself. Speaking to the news agency, he said, “For Sanju, I was thinking why is somebody else playing this bit? The last 8-10 years, you cannot do justice to that. Sanju should have played the last bit.”

Sanju Memes that have taken over the internet

While major section of the social media is overwhelmed by Ranbir Kapoor’s performance in the Sanju trailer itself, there is a community of some talented netizen who got busy making memes out of the trailer. Soon after the trailer launch, some really rib-tickling Sanju memes started floating on the internet. Have a look.

“Sanju” releasing on 29th June 2018 at Major Cineplex Sukhumvit, Rama 3 & Pattaya

Sanju is an upcoming Indian biographical film based on the life of Indian actor Sanjay Dutt, directed and written by Rajkumar Hirani and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. The film stars Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt in various stages of his life. The film is set to be released on 29 June 2018. A short official teaser of the film was released on 24 April 2018. It became the highest viewed Hindi film teaser of all time, garnering more than 30 million views within the first 48 hours of its release and 150 million global views across several social media platforms.


Few lives in our times are as dramatic and enigmatic as the saga of Sanjay Dutt. Coming from a family of cinema legends, he himself became a film star, and then saw dizzying heights and darkest depths: adulation of diehard fans, unending battles with various addictions, brushes with the underworld, prison terms, loss of loved ones, and the haunting speculation that he might or might not be a terrorist.

Sanju is in turns a hilarious and heartbreaking exploration of one man’s battle against his own wild self and the formidable external forces trying to crush him. It depicts the journey of a man through everything that life can throw at him. Some true stories leave you thinking “did this really happen?” This is one such unbelievable story that happens to be true.

Starring: Ranbir Kapoor, Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Vicky Kaushal, Jim Sarbh and Boman Irani.

Directed by: Rajkumar Hirani.

Produced by: Vinod Chopra Films and Rajkumar Hirani Films in association with Fox Star Studios.

Jagga Jasoos Review: Don’t Make The Galti Se Mistake Of Missing This!

Rating: 3.5/5 Stars (Three and half stars)
Star Cast: Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Saswata Chatterjee, Sayani Gupta, Saurabh Shukla, Rajatava Dutta
Director: Anurag Basu

What’s Good: story, performance, music
What’s Bad: length, narration
Loo Break: during interval
Watch or Not?: Read the headline once again!

Jagga, a child orphaned at birth was growing up in a hospital. One day a man lands in the hospital with a broken leg. He is a key witness to the Purulia arms drop case. Introducing himself to Jagga as Tooty footy, he adopts him and takes him to his place. However, within a few days, he gets Jagga admitted into a boarding school and disappears mysteriously, leaving Jagga alone again. Jagga grows up in the boarding. Unsolved mysteries intrigued him and he started helping the local police inspector in solving cases.

Shruti is a school teacher who narrates Jagga’s story to kids. Jagga’s story also features her in a major role.
What is her role in Jagga’s story? Where did Jagga’s father go? Is he alive?

Jagga Jasoos Movie Review: Script Analysis

A unique and interesting story. Anurag Basu pens an intriguing tale of a father-son story. But there is more to it than just father-son bonding. Jagga’s father Professor Bagchi’s secret mission and Jagga’s search for his missing father is what takes the story forward.

Katrina Kaif’s character has been created in such a way that till the end the viewer would feel confused whether she is Jagga’s sister or friend. What is she? Find it yourself after watching the film!
Another major confusion being the locations, in one moment it’s Moynaguri, the next moment it’s Purulia and then Manipur’s Ukhrul. At times it’s difficult to make out where they are. Also, I think there was a major confusion between Kenya’s Mombasa and Brazil’s Mombaca.

Jagga Jasoos Movie Review: Star Performance
Ranbir Kapoor as Jagga shows what he is capable of. He is a gem of an actor! Watch the film for Ranbir if not for anything else!

Katrina as school teacher Shruti tries her best and does a decent job.

Saswata Chatterjee as Professor Bagchi is excellent, Rajatava Chatterjee as police inspector and Saurabh Shukla as the antagonist are good.
Jagga Jasoos Movie Review: Direction, Music

Anurag Basu takes you on a musical adventurous journey. The film is engaging from the very beginning. However, it tends to stretch in the beginning of the second half and it could be tiring to hold your patience here. A little more effort was needed on the film’s editing. The film regains pace as it moves towards the climax.

Basu has chosen a set of excellent and veteran actors in the form of Bengali actors Saswata Chatterjee, Rajatava Dutta, and Bollywood actor Saurabh Shukla, all of who play major roles in the film.
S Ravi Varman does a nice job with the camera. The film has been shot in scenic landscapes and nice sets. However, in several scenes, the fake background was clearly understandable, (as it used to be during black and white and early color films) which is surprising in this era of magnificent visual effects.

Pritam take a bow! Excellent use of music in weaving dialogues into songs and poetry. However, in one particular scene, the music sounded similar to Satyajit Ray’s iconic detective film Sonar Kella (the camel scene for those who have watched it).
Songs Galti se mistake and the rap song Khaana khaake are my picks from the album.

Jagga Jasoos Movie Review: The Last Word

I would highly recommend watching this musical with a fresh and interesting script and nice music. This is surely one of Ranbir Kapoor’s best performances.
3.5 stars!

“They trust each other as actors. They look after each other onscreen. If Deepika is performing a scene, she knows that ‘Ranbir will take care of me’ and same with Ranbir. That’s the reason its magic when they come together onscreen and it’s not something I have seen between any two co-stars,” said Imtiaz Ali


On the last leg of their promotions for Tamasha, Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor arrived at the NDTV studio last week, and let me be honest, I was particularly keen to interview them ‘together’.

Bachna Ae Haseeno, which co-starred the duo in 2008 was a while ago – both were new in the industry, very much a couple – and the focus was on their relationship rather than their acting.

After that, they went their own ways, charted different paths and reunited for Ayan Mukerji’s 2013 movie Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani. Let’s accept it, they were electrifying together in the movie.

But a lot has happened since then. Ranbir, a fine actor, delivered three back-to-back flops and that could make a dent in anyone’s confidence. The Kapoor lad was anxious and admitted as much: ‘I am anxious. People trust you and it’s up to you to live up to the trust. My three flops have made me anxious. I don’t want to break their trust. After all you are as good as your last film.”

Deepika, on the other hand, was cool, calm and collected, and someone who wears her success with ease. She has no arrogance, no sense of pride and on the contrary, she was very supportive of her co-star. It would be fair to say that her presence was as soothing as balm.

So what was so ‘comforting’ about the two that translated so well onscreen? Their Tamasha director Imtiaz Ali had the answer.

“They trust each other as actors. They look after each other onscreen. If Deepika is performing a scene, she knows that ‘Ranbir will take care of me’ and same with Ranbir. That’s the reason it’s magic when they come together onscreen and it’s not something I have seen between any two co-stars,” admitted Imtiaz.

Ranbir, who voted girlfriend Katrina Kaif as a better actor on a talk show not long ago, also said that now Deepika is in a league of her own. She is an actor who challenges boundaries. Her sheer talent could intimidate anyone and she sure did intimidate him with the natural ease with which she performed.

Deepika returned the compliment to her co-star by saying that there was nothing that Ranbir could not do and she was ‘jealous’ of him as an actor.

Whatever may have been their personal equation in the past, remains in the past. The two have not only evolved as actors over the years but have also matured as human beings, comfortable and confident in their space – Tamasha is a reflection of that.

The film may have opened to mixed reviews to an otherwise calm box office but is gradually gaining momentum by word of mouth. Needless to say, the credit goes to its two lead actors.

So as Ranbir puts the ghost of Bombay Velvet behind him, Deepika has only cemented her position as one of Bollywood’s better actresses.

‘Tamasha’ releasing on 27 November 2015 at Major Cineplex Sukhumvit, Rama 3,Pattaya, Paragon & Mae Sot


Tamasha is an upcoming Indian romantic drama film directed by Imtiaz Ali and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. It stars Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone in lead roles. Tamasha tells the story of character “Ved” (played by Ranbir Kapoor) who loses his self by living according to the social conventions expected of him. Principal photography began in Corsica, France in July 2014. Post this schedule, filming continued briefly in Indian cities—Shimla, Delhi, Gurgaon and Kolkata followed by two-day schedule in Tokyo, Japan. The filming concluded in Mumbai by August 2015.

The film score and soundtrack album are composed by A. R. Rahman, with lyrics from Irshad Kamil. Tamasha is scheduled to release on 27 November 2015.


Ved (Ranbir Kapoor) has grown up among stories. As a kid in Shimla, he would collect money, even steal money so that the old storyteller would tell him stories. Ramayan, Helen of Troy, Laila Majnu, Heer Ranjha, Aladin, Romeo Juliet. The storyteller would also say that all stories are the same.

Ved wants his story with Tara (Deepika Padukone) to be different. So they decide to not tell each other who they are, to only lie about themselves and after returning from the island to never meet each other again.

But they do meet again.

The question is whether they will be able to shape their story in the way they want. Will the muse be able to make an artist of a common man, will Ved be able to break the shackles of ordinary existence, escape the corporate rat-race and become the way Tara sees him – the exuberant story-teller?

Corsica, Simla, Delhi, Calcutta, Japan – all the world is a stage – as the drama of Ved and Tara unfolds. Frolic, rage, quirk, laughter. Defeat, victory. Tamasha.
