Sukhwinder shot to fame with "Chaiyya Chaiyya" for which he won the Filmfare award for the best playback singer in 1999. This song was also featured in the musical Bombay Dreams. This song was so inspiring that noted Hollywood director sent a message of multiculturalism by using the same song for the title credit of his blockbuster film - Inside Man.

Sukhwinder was unstoppable and acquired more international fame for the award winning song 'Jai Ho' from the award winning movie Slumdog Millionaire.

Sukhwinder's other notable hits are:- Chak De India... Dard-e-Disco, Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, Beedi, Jalwa, Aaj Mera Jee Kardaa, Ramta Jogi, Dhan Te Nan and many, many more.  So popular is Sukhwinder that sponsors are clamoring to be a part of this historic concert.

Tamilnadu (India)

We were on the second leg of our fortnight long trip to Tamilnadu. This southern state of India had already given us an extensive idea about the grand structures that this region could boast of. Now it was our turn to visit the mountains, the Nilgiris to be precise, and experience the beauty of the verdant hills, lush green tea gardens, magnificent wild life, rivers, dams and peaks… put it in one word…the scenic splendor.

It's a Wonderful Afterlife (Brit/Indian Film review)

Can Gurinder Chadha be called an Indian director? Certainly yes, because she is a person of Indian origin and all her films revolve around Indians, mostly settled in the UK…the most popular being ‘Bend it like Beckham.’ But ‘It’s a wonderful afterlife’ is called a British film. It is based in Southall, a suburb of London and revolves around an Indian family.

KITES goes - "bho-katta"... KITES (2010) Hindi Movie Review by Nilanjan Nandy

"KITES" has 'run loose', what we Bengalis love to term as "BHO-KATTA" !!

Kites (Indian/Hindi movie review)

Bollywood’s ‘drop dead’ gorgeous Hrithik Roshan has not been able to keep the ‘kites’ fluttering merrily in its open sky. Rakesh Roshan has always directed his son well and the results have been phenomenal, starting from Kaho Na Pyar Hai to Krrish. But, this time he has handed over the directorial responsibility to Anurag Basu and unfortunately, the results haven’t been very pleasant.

Amanush (2010, Bengali) - a psychological thriller!

Amanush is a psychological thriller and it satisfies to an extent, but why drag the 1975 title a super hit Uttam Kumar film which is more or less a classic, for a 2010 thriller???


Aparna Sen's THE JAPANESE WIFE is a visual delight, but lacks pace and special performance moments that matters in a film like this.

Aditya and Ashidhara Das - Talented Singers from San Francisco Bay Area, California, USA | WBRi Exclusive Feature

The husband and wife pair of Aditya and Ashidhara Das are well known singers from the San Francisco Bay area in northern California. Aditya is currently a Pharmaceutical Consultant (Ph.D. Chemical Engineering and MBA (Strategy)) in the San Francisco Bay Area and Ashidhara is a Ph.D. in Anthropology and teaches at Ashford University (in an online Program designed for Undergraduates). Their sons Anirban (11) and Ayan (8) both learn Hindustani Classical Vocal from Shubhangi Sakhalkar in the Bay Area.

Among numerous acclaimed performances as talented vocalists, Aditya and Ashidhara are particularly proud of performing with the great Sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar and his daughter Anoushka during a performance of Saare Jahan Se Accha (music composed in Raga Pilu by Guruji and sung by them during the madhyalaya gat) to celebrate India's 50th Independence Anniversary at the California Center for the Arts in Escondido. Their fondest memory is certainly the call they received from Guruji 4 days before the performance, inviting them to sing on stage with him.
