Sumit Khetan

 

Sumit Khetan is the man who choreographed Ayushmaan Khuraana in the very popular song ‘Paani da rang’ and ‘Rum whisky’, who had created magic in reality shows like Comedy Nights with Kapil and Rang De and Colors Holi. Well, he is now set to add color to Khamakhah Yun Hi shot in Thailand. The film is unusual in the sense it features real life incidences of the medical world incorporated in a mature love story. The movie ends on a very different note sending out a special message to the society on extra marital relationships. Produced under the banner of Reverberation films Pvt Ltd the choreography of the film is something to watch out for.

Vidyut Jammwal: Fitter than the fittest – Day 890

Vidyut Jammwal

Director Vipul Shah introduced him as an action hero and now Vidyut Jammwal has always become synonymous with dare devil action. Recently the actor had to perform some difficult scenes with the stuntmen wrapped in fiber chest guards but when it was time for action, the actor came on so strong that he ended up collapsing all the stuntmen, fortunately none of them were injured. I’m not surprised that Vidyut is proud of his sculpted body, he should be.

A Flying Jatt is a joke – Day 888

By | Films | No Comments

 

 

a-flying-jatt-trailer

Film Review: A Flying Jatt

Director: Remo Dsouza
Cast: Tiger Shroff, Jacqueline Fernandez, Amrita Singh, Kaykay Menon
Rating: 2 stars

In the good old seventies we saw innumerable films about evil businessmen trying to usurp a piece of land from a helpless owner. This time the owner is Bebe (Amrita Singh) and she will not surrender her land because there is an ancient tree and they will not allow it to be harmed. The business man tries scaring Bebe’s son Aman (Tiger Shroff) and when everything else fails, he packs a monster called Raka (Nathan) to destroy them all. Most of the time, such stories where good triumphs over evil worked, A Flying Jatt does not and it is because the director becomes ambitious and packs in too many things. The writer is so busy barking messages about Sikhism, terrorism and environment that he forgets to develop a single character. By the time you break for an interval you are heading for a migraine and by the end of the film you are perplexed what is going on. The focus is so much on the VFX and an imaginary conflict to save the world that simple questions are not answered for example, where is this town and how come nobody in the rest of the country is aware of the problem? The writer becomes so preoccupied with the innumerable messages he wants to pack in for instance terrorism, environment, supernatural powers and religion that he forgets to appropriately introduce his characters and make them interesting. Nothing works about the film, not the story, not the characters and not the substandard VFX. The narrative is boring and the message dishonest. A Flying Jatt can be watched only for Tiger Shroff. Tiger fights, dances like a dream and looks a superhero in the costume.

Krishna & ISKCON – Day 887

By | Uncategorized | No Comments
prabhupada-portrait

Srila Prabhupada

For the first time in history of America, Srila Prabhupada held public chanting of Hare Krishna Mahamanta in the Tompkins Square Park in New York and the vibrations were electrifying. Westerners spontaneously joined him to chant ‘Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare / Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare’ crowds followed him. As time went by, more people joined the group, some wore the robes that Prabhuda wore and yearned to eat the sumptuous Krishna prasadam lovingly served by Prabhuda. His followers helped him to establish ISKCON in 1966, just a year after his landing in the foreign country. It was the first time something like this had happened in New York City. In the coming eleven years, Srila Prabhupada circled the globe a dozen times spreading the message of Krishna and established 108 ISKCON temples in major cities around the world. Srila Prabhupada departed from this mortal world in 1977 and ISKCON takes forward his missionary activities around the world. Happy Gokulashtami to all.

Story of Iskcon – Day 886

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Srila Prabhupada

This is a story as old as the hills, of Srila Prabhupada born in 1896, Calcutta in a devout Vaishnava family. He was instructed by his guru maharaj to preach the message of Bhagavad-gita in English throughout the world and the process began almost organically. In 1965, at the age of 69, Srila Prabhupada was given a free ticket to travel to U.S.A in Scindia Steam Navigation Company’s cargo ship Jaladuta. Srila Prabhupada grabbed the opportunity and carried with him Rs 40 and some trunks of books published by him. When the ship was sailing over the Red Sea, Srila Prabhupada suffered two heart attacks and Prabhuda noted in his diary that had he suffered a third attack on the voyage, he would not have survived. It was during this time; Lord Krishna appeared in his dream and assured him protection. Srila Prabhupada reached America without any contacts or plans. For few months he stayed with distant acquaintances and one of them helped him to find a roof in Lower East Side of New York. Prabhuda was comfortable, well almost and soon he got an opportunity he had never dreamed of. Happy Janmashtami to all.

(To be continued)

Ajay Devgn lives Shivaay – Day 885

By | Films | No Comments
Shivaay-2016

Poster of the film

Ajay Devgn recently shot the music video version of the title track of Shivaay at a suburban studio. The title track as featured in the film is being kept under wraps and will not feature in any of the trailers as Ajay is certain that what they have for the film has not been seen in Hindi cinema so far. To engage his audience before the release however Ajay Devgn is shooting with a group of singers like Sukhwinder Singh, Mohit Chauhan, Badshah, debutant Megha and the music composer of the film, Mithoon. The music video also features Ajay Devgn and the concept promises to be a visual extravaganza, well that’s what Ajay says and he is hardly the kind to exaggerate. Shivaay releases Diwali 2016.
