She is a recent architecture school graduate working in an architecture firm. She dreams of going to Paris to pursue higher education. The cheerful banter soon gives way to a conversation where both Adi and Tara realize that they strongly feel that marriage isn’t for them and move in together until the time they go their separate ways when career comes calling.

Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur’s third track, Enna Sona, from OK Jaanu to be out soon

OK all Jaanus out there, Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur’s next track Enna Sona to be out soon. Stay tuned to this space for the song.

Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur’s OK Jaanu sure is hitting off really well with millennials. From the trailer of the film to the first song, The Humma song, fans are lovin’ everything about this film. Here’s another good news for you guys, since you’re showing so much love. The third track of the film, Enna Sona, to be out on Friday, i.e. December 23, 2016. To announce the same, Miss Kapoor shared a really cute still from the film where she and Adi are chilling in a bathtub. Gosh, they both look so cute, their chemistry is definitely going to be the biggest sellout in this film! The best news about the song is the fact that it is being sung by Arijit Singh.

As you can see in the poster released by the films, they both look really happy in each other’s company. This isn’t the first time we’ve swooned at the sight of Shraddha and Adi’s jodi. They look so damn cute together that they instantly give you couple goals without doing much. Friday is going to be a good day not just for OK Jaanu fans but also for Arijit fans. The last time Arijit and Ar Rahman came together was for Tamasha, Agar Tum Saath Ho. The result of that, we know very well. Too many awards to their aid. And looks like with Enna Sona, the same might happen.

 
A lot of you may know this but for the ignorant ones out there, the film is an official remake of Tamil film, OK Kanmani. Directed by Shaad Ali, the film is produced by Mani Ratnam, who directed the Tamil version of the film. Needless to say, the music composer of the film is AR Rahman, who has managed to mesmerise fans with his songs. The Humma song and the title track of the film have both been very well received by fans. Not to forget, even the visuals have been really cool. For all Mumbaikars, who have never given the city’s infrastructure the attention it deserves, this movie is going to make them fall for the city like anything!

Baaghi movie review: A terrific Tiger Shroff and a radiant Shraddha Kapoor provide enough THRILLS for action lovers!

13007202_1008270719261437_5731799722997075969_n

The film is directed by Sabbir Khan.

After giving a huge break to India’s answer to Bruce Lee, Tiger Shroff, in Heropanti, Sabbir Khan reunites with his fave star in the romantic actioned, Baaghi. And joining them in the action spectacle is Shraddha Kapoor. Let’s see if the Tiger- Sabbir combo works again for the fan…

 

Baaghi is a remake of the Tamil film, Mazhai, which itself is inspired from Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit’s Tezaab. Plus, there are references to the cult Indonesian action flick Raid: Redemption and Kung Fu Panda. The film begins with Siya (Shraddha Kapoor), an actress in a South flick, kidnapped by a business magnate based in Bangkok, Raghav (Sudheer Babu). As to what business he is doing we have no clue, since all we see he has a building full of martial artists. The movie’s producer hires her ex-lover Rony (Tiger Shroff) to get her back. The movie moves to flashback where it was love at first sight for Rony when he meets Siya on a train to Kerala. At the same time, it was also love at first sight for Raghav as well. Rain also plays an integral role in advancing Siya and Rony’s love story. But silly misunderstandings, a conniving father and vengeful villain keep them apart. However all is right when the hero jets off to Bangkok to rescue his Sita from the clutches of Raavan!

What’s hot

Let’s be honest here. Why have you bought the tickets for the film? To see Tiger kick some ass and break more bones, right? If that’s reason, you will have your money’s worth here. Though the film takes its own sweet time to reach there, when the film gets into action mode, you just can’t take your eyes off the screen. Special commendation must be given to the action choreography, which, though inspired, is still breathtaking. And of course, nothing would have been believable if it was not for the star, Tiger Shroff. This man is seriously unbelievably when it comes to performing mind-boggling stunts. Check out his intro scene, and we won’t blame you if a whistle escapes from your mouth. He also dances like a dream, and acting has improved a lot since his debut film. Shraddha Kapoor brightens up the proceedings with her radiant smile and she also gets to into action mode in a couple of scenes (though how she is such a pro is never explained). Sudheer Babu is fine as the suave, love-struck villain and his physique could give you an inferiority complex. Grandmaster Shifuji, who plays Tiger’s teacher in the film and is also a real-life martial arts expert, is impressive. The training portions in Kalaripayattu are very engaging, and so is the climax fight scene. The music is top-notch, though a couple of songs are forced. The beautiful locales of Kerala in the first half provides enough visual appeal to the film.

What’s not

While we enjoy the action served before us, the movie falters when it comes to injecting emotions and a credible storyline. The plot is as old as the Himalayas, filled with enough holes, and the romance between Rony and Siya is cheesy and even looks forced. In fact, whenever a romantic scene is going on, we wait impatiently for the action to resume, despite having two very good looking stars. The film has two talented comic talents in Sunil Grover and Sanjay Mishra, yet the comedy portions suck. Sunil Grover’s character, though integral to the love story, is abandaned without further mention as the film ends. The Cham Cham track in the first half is so cheesy and unbelievable in its choreography, when Shraddha gets off the train and starts dancing, and others join her and match her steps. This is not even a dream sequence. Haven’t we evolved beyond such scenes? Even though the stunts are brilliant, the situations in which they are placed are not so. The final fight between the hero and the villain is also disappointing. Also, a tip to the makers – China and Thailand are two different countries. So calling a Thai a Chinese is actually racist!

What to do

Baaghi is a treat for the action lovers. Watch the film for its amazing stunts and Tiger Shroff. Boy, he surely rocks!

Rating: 4.5 out of 5
Baaghi new poster: Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor look INTENSE and RUSTIC in this new still!

Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor are all set to burn your screens on April 29. Are you ready to watch them?

Are you ready to watch the rebels in love?

Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor are all set to burn our screens with Baaghi next week. While the lead pair is jet setting, running from pillar to post promoting their film, we got hold of this poster and man, it is too damn hot to handle.

In the poster, Tiger (who is doing an excellent job showing off his perfect abs in a open three piece) is sitting in a what looks like a rustic bathtub, his leading lady Shraddha is sitting on the top looking all intense. We love her brown leather jacket and that KILLER expression on her face. Both of them look like REBELS IN LOVE, true to the tagline of the movie.

‘BAAGHI’ Releasing on 29 April 2016 at Major Cineplex Sukhumvit, Rama 3, Pattaya & Mae Sot

 

Baaghi is the story of Ronny, a rebellious 23-year-old from Delhi. Fearing his unruly and angry temperament his father sends him to a disciplinary academy set in a sleepy town in Kerala. While traveling to the academy he meets Siya who also carries a rebellious streak but nonetheless spark fly between them. After his enrollment, Ronny encounters the star student Raghav and things get awry between them when Raghav falls for Siya as well. Years later Ronny is informed that Siya is abducted and is called upon for help to rescue her from the gritty underbelly of Thailand. Lost in the midst of a new city Ronny comes face to face with his nemesis, Raghav. They both still love Siya unconditionally and are in a battle to win her heart. But there will be only one person who will. Who will it be the rebellious Ronny or the furious Raghav?

Actor/Actress : Tiger Shroff, Shraddha Kapoor

Baaghi: Tiger and Shraddha didn’t want to waste water for their rain song. So they did this

In order to make sure that not much water is wasted while filming the rain song in Baaghi, the team of Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor’s upcoming film took extra care.

cham-cham_647_041116072240

Baaghi, starring Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor, has a rain song and a couple of rain sequences. In order to make sure that not much water is wasted, filmmakers Sajid Nadiadwala and Sabbir Khan took extra care regarding the issue.

They instructed the entire team that gallons of water should not be wasted to shoot these sequences for the film.

On the other hand, they did not want to compromise on the creativity of the film either.

The Baaghi team, therefore, has shot most of the song and the rain sequences in natural rain.

Tiger, Shraddha and the team took off to Kerala to shoot for the film. Rains were quite natural there and that’s when they decided to shoot the rain song and the rain sequence so as to avoid wasting much water later.

The process required a couple of extra days from the cast and crew, but they achieved what they wanted. Everyone was glad about the final outcome.

Sajid Nadiadwala’s Baaghi, directed by Sabbir Khan, is slated for an April 29, 2016 release.

Here’s the song Cham Cham:
