Recent years have seen a happier curve for women in Indian cinema, as they no longer need a male superstar to invite audience to theatres. 'Queen', 'Saand Ki Aankh' and 'Mulk' became a cult just by the virtue of the content, and author-backed roles written for women. This year's 'Chhapaak' and 'Thappad' are additions to the list where women are leading the pack and how!
On Shahid Kapoor's 39th birthday, IndiaTV Recommends 'Kaminey' -- for the bundle of unbridled talent he is, for 'Dhan Te Nan', and for his mentor Vishal Bharadwaj's craft (IMDb rating: 7.4).
'Mujhse Shaadi Karoge' is a show made in haste -- with no proper script or logic. It's a snoozefest nobody deserved -- neither Colors TV nor Sidharth Shukla and Shehnaaz Kaur Gill. Don't watch it especially if you are a SidNaaz fan. Skip. SKIP. In caps and bold.
Kajal Aggarwal spoke with IndiaTVNews.com, and said she was super stoked to have made a place at Madame Tussauds, Singapore.
If Sidharth Shukla has been the mind/head of 'Bigg Boss 13', Shehnaaz Kaur Gill is the heart. The emergence of this new synergy in the house gave the entire world a new moniker to associate emotions with -- SidNaaz, and 'Bigg Boss' its most interesting and successful season.
At the special screening of 'Shikara: The Untold Story Of Kashmiri Pandits', held in order to mark 30 years of the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the valley, Vidhu Vinod Chopra categorically said they need an apology for the indifference they have faced all these years.
On Hrithik Roshan and Kalki Koechlin's birthday, a day after Farhan Akhtar's, India TV Recommends 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara' for the sheer beauty of Spain, for Zoya Akhtar's genius, and for everything life stands for. Zindagi -- truly -- na milegi dobara....but can we get a sequel to the movie please? ZNMD, dobara?
On Deepika Padukone's 34th birthday, India TV Recommends 'Tamasha' for Imtiaz Ali's unique storytelling; exemplary music; Ranbir Kapoor's trajectory of Ved; most importantly for her true-to-self portrayal of a girl in love; and lastly, for the motivation you would require to discover yourself.
On Salman Khan's 54th birthday, India TV Recommends 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' for a totally new piece of the superstar's oeuvre, his Pavan's simplicity, an almost-jingoistic yet powerful climax by Kabir Khan, and the criminally cute Harshaali Malhotra.
On Anil Kapoor's 63rd birthday, India TV Recommends 'Pukar' for one of his best performances, Rajkumar Santoshi's storytelling, and for the sheer pleasure of watching a perfectly made mainstream movie with a dash of patriotism.
As we embrace 2020 with open arms, just what Shah Rukh Khan pulled off on his heroines in the 90s, we list our takeaways from the past decade -- 2010-2019 (in no proper order).
The past decade -- from 2010 to 2019 -- saw an emergence of the millennial cinema in Bollywood; the kind wherein the new India strived and thrived to make content-driven films. We list our top 15.
On Raj Kapoor's 95th birth anniversary, India TV recommends 'Prem Rog' for the message it conveys, Rishi Kapoor's screen presence, Padmini Kolhapure's brilliance, its stellar music, and most importantly, to admire and appreciate the 'greatest showman's genius even more.
Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Panday get chatty about their movie's comparison with the 1978 OG film, and clash with 'Panipat' at the Box Office.
India TV Digital got chatty with the creator of the series and the cast of Inside Edge 2, and discovered that this season is as rivetting as an inning played by firebrand cricketer Virender Sehwag. Or so does Vivek Oberoi claim.
Amazon Prime Video's web series Inside Edge is returning with its second season on December 6, and the director, Karan Anshuman, cannot obviously keep calm.
On her 56th birthday, we thank Meenakshi Sheshadri for unknowingly doing a larger good for the women in Bollywood. Happy birthday, Damini!
Shah Rukh Khan is a paradox -- a victim of his stardom and the culprit of his intelligence, and the most underused and overused actor at the same time. India TV Recommends 'Chak De India' for its tear-jerking script, stellar performances by the cast, and, perhaps, SRK's best act till date -- the 24 seconds of the climax.
India TV Recommends 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam' for its (re)definition of romance and commitment, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's brilliance, Aishwarya Rai's bursting into the picture, and Ismail Darbar's music. And for the joie de vivre of love and pain (they cannot be apart).
"We don't think there is a competition," Rajkummar Rao and Boman Irani share similar sentiment on 'Made In China' fronting 'Housefull 4' on October 25.
