IIFA Nominations For 2008 IIFA Awards

Filed under: Bollywood Gossip,Bollywood News - 17 Apr 2008

The nominations for the prestiguous IIFA Awards which are akin to the Oscars in Bollywood are out. The controversial things about this time’s awards though is that Aamir Khan’s critically acclaimed Taare Zameen Par will not feature in the list of nominations. The reason being Aamir Khan’s failure to fill in the nomination details for Taare Zameen Par for IIFA Awards. So that means Chak De India is most likely to sweep most awards this year round.

The IIFA Awards ceremony would be held in Bangkok this year and it sure promises to be a scintillating star studded affair.

Video : Race Saanson Ki Title Track Trailer

Abbas Mustaan’s Race starring Saif Ali Khan, Anil Kapoor, Akshaye Khanna, Katrina Kaif, Sameera Reddy and Bipasha Basu in the lead is perhaps one of the biggest films coming from the director duo’s stable.

Touted to be an edge of the  seat thriller, Race is likely to take the box office by storm when it releases. Pritam, fresh with the success of Life In A Metro and Jab We Met , has another winner on his hand with Race.

The title track of Race is an adrenaline packed song with the electronic guitar in the background supplementing the song perfectly. The inital beats have a James Bond like similarity to them and get the pace right for the rest of the song. Sunidhi Chauhan gets the club feel into the song with her spunky voice and Neeraj compliments her well.

Celebrity Chat With Kangna Ranaut

Filed under: Interviews with Bollywood Stars - 29 Aug 2007

 Kangana Ranaut has made a mark for her self in Bollywood. She drew appreciation for her debut performance in Gangster folowed by roles in Woh Lamhe. She received flak for her performance in Shaka Laka Boom Boom but came back with a bang with her role in Life In A Metro.

Here is an interview of Kangana Raut where she talks about her realtionship with Aditya Pancholi, clarifies about her misunderstanding with the Bhatt Camp,  about silicon boobs and more..

Why have you often refrained from speaking to the media? Do you have an attitude problem? There’s so much to ask you…
I am a lonely person. I don’t exchange numbers. I keep to myself. Attitude comes to a person who has fame and money. I have neither (pauses). Okay, shoot. Today, I will talk.

Many Bollywood heroines are game to the surgeon’s knife for silicone boobs. Your take on that?
They are also going in for silicone hips, and not to forget, collagen lips. These girls feel that this is the best way to attract men and become a sex symbol. Little do they realise that it has an adverse effect on health. I have heard men talking about big boobs and big ass. I want to ask men. What matters to them- a nice pair of boobs or a girl with a nice nature? I will never get carried away.

You still seeing Aditya Panscholi?
I was never seeing Aditya Panscholi.

You were staying either in his flat with his family, or in a flat given by him?
No. Since two years, I have been staying in a 1-BHK at Yari Road. Few months back, I purchased a 3-BHK on Turner Road in Bandra. I will be shifting there in a month or two. How can I stay in a married man’s house?

Does this mean that you stay alone?
I used to stay alone. But now my younger sister from Dehradun has moved in with me.

Did Aditya become very possessive about you at one point? Those police complaints that you hadfiled against each other…
(Interrupts) It is very difficult to make anybody understand. There are some bonds which one can’t be given names and explained. He was a genuine friend.

He promoted you in Bollywood?
There was no way that he could promote me.

You are still in touch with him?
No. It ended. But I am sure that we are there for each other if we need any help.

Shiney gave you acting tips in Woh Lamhe and Gangster, and you got pissed off?
No, Shiney did not give me any acting tips.

Review : Life In A Metro

Life In A Metro Movie Review

Star Cast : Shiney Ahuja, Shilpa Shetty, Irrfan Khan, Konkana Sen Sharma, Kay Kay Menon, Kangna Ranaut, Sharman Joshi, Nafisa Ali, Dharmendra.

Movie Runtime : 140 min.

The film’s promos describe the movie as a story of countless emotions. Love, sex, faith, lies, lust, passion, ambition are some of the emotions that were portrayed by the protagonists. It’s a story of a bunch of 9 people, each trying to adjust themselves with the fast paced life of a Metro.

If you want to know the story, then check the movie trailer(below). Give your grey cells some stress and you shall get a basic idea of the movie.

Bollywood has tried it’s hand at movies with multiple paths all converging to form a single story in the end. I guess it started with Dil Vil Pyaar Vyaar ( a big flop), but as time progressed the film-makers became more intelligent in weaving many plots into one. Among all such movies I have watched, Naseer’s film Yun Hota To Kya Hota has been my favorite. But after watching Life In A Metro, Yun Hota… has been displaced to the second spot.

Life In A Metro by Anurag Basu ( of Murder and Gangster fame) is one of the better films of 2007. Both technically as well as script wise the movie is a good product. I always grumble, that unlike Hollywood films, where lot of pain goes into selecting the star cast, Bollywood film-makers barely spend time to get the star cast right. Any damn actor will do for them. But I must appreciate the makers of Metro for selecting a bunch of talented actors that fit their roles to the tee.

All the actors have done a fantastic job and credit must go to Anurag Basu for handling his team with such finesse. Each actor has been given ample scope to show his/her presence felt in the film. Basically all the actors are important and there is no single star. But if I were to list the actors and their performances by order of merit then it would go like :

Irrfan Khan : simply brilliant, marvelous. His best performance after Maqbool. Although his role is not too long, Irrfan just manages to mesmerize you with his acting. Irrfan’s character is a difficult one too have been played and Irrfan plays it with such adeptness, that not once does he go over board.

Konkona Sen Sharma : She does it everytime and in Metro she does it again. She simply bowls you down with her potrayal of a 30 year old virgin desperately in pursuit of a life a partner. Konkona’s strength is her sweet, innocent voice, you can never get bored of hearing her speak. The way she gets into the skin of her character is marvelous. You start relating with her from scene one itself.
