BRAVE (2012) WBRi Movie Review - a Feisty Heroine in Animated 3D

Hollywood Animated Movie Poster BraveKolkata, India, June 23, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio / Penning Creations) ‘Brave’ is an ambitious venture coming hot on the tray from the animation factory of Pixar and loaded with a lot of expectations. It stands out as the first Disney / Pixar movie to have a female protagonist and therefore hopes to ruffle a few feathers among the critics’ closet. The film certainly has a rich flair in depicting the beautiful locations, settings and the rough sketches of the characters. The director duo of Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman have tread very carefully in crafting out this movie and assuring the audience of a fun ride at the multiplexes. But it still fails to reach the virtuous elegance and finesse that previous ventures from Pixar had. Although the visuals are indeed exciting and full of prospects, the film misses out on making the emotional connect with the audience.

Gangs of Wasseypur (2012) WBRi Movie Review: Anurag Kashyap Peeps into Desi Gang Wars

Bollywood Hindi Movie Gangs of Wasseypur (2012)

Kolkata June 23, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio / Penning Creations) We have often been witness and bystander to many a crime revenge dramas over the years in Bollywood with the likes of RGV’s landmark ‘Shiva’ and the very recent cult remake of ‘Agneepath’. While most of them in recent times have faltered in the absence of a solid plot, the others abated away into grim darkness due to their gory and gruesome depictions. It is here that Anurag Kashyap - one of the most intelligent film-makers in today's India - enters the picture blowing the conch for a war-cry and declaring that his latest venture ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ has been stirred from the likes of Western masters such as Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino. If you are game for a blood-spluttering ride across the coal belt of India with glimpses into the life of ruthless and remorseless gang members, then ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ is the ideal movie date for you this weekend. Although a tad long in terms of duration, the movie seeks to travel the less trodden path and intends to give you a peep into the expletives of desi gang wars.

Kolkata, India, June 23, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio / Penning Creations) Ever looked forward to going to the multiplexes and halls simply to spend double the amount which you have spent for the actual movie ticket? It might often happen that the heaps of popcorn, snacks and drinks will occupy you far more than the movie itself.

Kunal Kohli’s movie will surely boost the profits of the beverage and the snacks departments outside the halls. Love stories have always fascinated the movie lovers. Most of the revenues of the Bollywood Industry come from the success of the romantic stories, be it Dilwale Dulhania Lay Jayege (1995), where the two lover’s path is impeded by the social customs, parents’ disapproval and disparate social milieu, or the recently released Parineeti Chopra film Ishaqzaade (2012), which narrates the story of two people from different religious background falling for each other and hence incurring the wrath of their fellow relatives and families, against the complex, licentious political background.

Trailer: Teri Meri Kahani

Director Kunal Kohli tries to traverse three time frames and incorporate all the subtle changes and multifaceted intricacies which shape the human society and to some extent our perceptions and knowledge of love. He also looks to emphasize that love is the purest and the most benign form of human expression, if experienced at its true depth.

By Debanjan Guha Thakurta

All that glitters is not gold- Here’s why you should look beyond gold.

Key Points:
•    Gold has delivered solid returns for the past 5, can it continue that trend?
•    Gold has already reached its peak. When will it cool off?
•    No one knows the fair value of the Gold, which leaves  big scope of speculation
•    It is prudent to focus on the undervalued equity market, not on the metal

Unless you have been living under a rock, the buzzword nowadays is Gold.

Today, whenever you hear Gold, the first question that you tend to ask is how much more has the price of Gold increased? As Indians, Gold is a favoured investment over and above traditional Fixed Deposits and sometime even Real Estate. By now every one of us has either bought some gold or has made investments in Gold through Gold ETFs and Gold Funds.
