Ek Second...Jo Zindagi Badal De (Hindi Film/Teaser)

The Indian cinegoers would probably know Partho Ghosh as the director of thrillers like ‘100 days’ (Madhuri Dixit/Jackie Shroff, the story of a girl’s premonition powers) and even Agnisakshi (Manisha Koirala/Jackie Shroff, inspired by Hollywood’s ‘Sleeping with the Enemy.’

Partho Ghosh is again set to hit the silver screens on June 11th, 2010 with his next venture, featuring his favourite stars (probably) Jackie Shroff & Manisha Koirala in the film ‘Ek second…jo zindagi badal de.’

Both Jackie Shroff and Manisha Koirala are fading stars in the skies of Bollywood but it would be nice to see them together again, both individually and opposite each other. The film will also see a former beauty pageant winner Nikita Anand (Miss India 2003) in a lead role. And even Moammer Rana, a Pakistani film star who will pair opposite the beauty queen. The element of surprise would be to watch Roza Catalano, the ex-flame of the ‘Chhote Nawab’ (between Amrita Singh and Kareena Kapoor)

Bengali Movie Review - Mahanagar@Kolkata (2010) - A film by Suman Mukhopadhyay

Mahanagar@ Kolkata, a story by Nabarun Bhattacharya (who had also written Herbert for Suman Mukherjee) has written the story for the same director showing us a different side of the metropolis called Kolkata.It shows us how despite class differences people of the city can still come together and shows us their joy, sorrow, insecurities and frustration yet it seems to be part of one big circle.

Passionate speeches, a rapt audience, reverberations of an auspicious conch, the sound of ancient Sanskrit verses, a unique idol of Lord Ganesh on display and an exhibition of objects attacked by ghosts were just some of the highlights of the second Hinduism Summit held in Chicago on Nija Vaishakh Krushna Ashtami 5112 (5 June 2010) ! The Summit was held by the Forum for Hindu Awakening (FHA) and the Lake County Hindu Temple. Around 100 attendees in person and 200 attendees online took the benefit of this event.

Raavan/Raavanan(Hindi/Tamil Film Promo)

Mani Ratnam has always been successful in bringing out the best of Abhishek Bachchan. I would not say Guru was a good performance,
but Yuva certainly made a lot of difference. The character of Lallan Singh was as if, written with Abhishek Bachchan in mind and the Indian cinegoers will agree to the fact that his performance in Yuva was mind blowing.  Raavan’s Beera can create equal magic if and only if, Mani Sir, as he is lovingly called by the film fraternity, has not tried to encash Ms. Rai’s presence in the film (like RGV did in Sarkar )

The Tamil version Raavanan, will see Vikram as Veera. Vikram is a one of the most popular heroes of the Tamil cinema and his film Sethu, among all others created an impact even on the minds of the Hindi film lovers. Interestingly, Sethu had been remade in Hindi, as Tere Naam, starring Salman Khan and Bhumika Chawla. With lot of film awards to his credit, this is one performance from a super star that the Indian cinegoers would look out for.
