Maybe, once I start mingling with people, I might find someone. I am in search of someone with whom I can converse for hours. Real mard woh hai joh har kism ki aurat ki izzat karna janta ho, na ki yeh sari pehniti hai, virgin hai, toh achchi hogi. Somebody who can take me to his family and say, I want to marry this girl, oh yes, abhi!"

Ishq In Paris Preview

Ishq in Paris preview | Hindi Movie Ishkq In Paris Movie Review

Ishq in Paris preview!

Ishq in paris is one enamored story of two strangers who meet in Paris France. There is nothing that the title doesn't suggest and the real movie sticks to the title through the most part, commendably. The desi movie has its own videsi charms with Paris being the backdrop.

When you find two single strangers of the opposite sex, who are not willing for any commitments and yet want to enjoy the gifts and hedonism of youth, “Ishq in Paris” is what describes the rest of the story. The couple, for a night spend a night together, in the most enchanting and romantic way ever. No sexuality involved. The ones fearful of a commitment agree never to see each other again after this splendid night.

Naturally, you can expect such characters to be a male who is generally not very outward and the exact antithesis in females, a zingy beauty. Rehan Maliek, who plays Akaash, is perfect for the role with his sober-like lifestyle yet wouldn't pass away an opportunity for unbridled love. Preity Zinta has never played a role more apt to her liveliness than this one. Her animated vigor perfectly suits the character of Ishqk.

Preity Zinta perfectly fits into the life of Half-French Ishqk and bring out the desired nature in her. Ishqk is one girl who cannot trust relationships and is unwarrantedly wary of them at all times. The emotional her is sealed beneath the veneer of tacit and insouciant Ishqk that we see outwardly.

Paris undoubtedly is the perfect stage for this romance, not very indigenous to India. There is little scope for emotion in Preity's character but the subtle shades in her character are very distinct to the trained eye.

Rehan should be Preity's soul mate for he cannot act so much in sync with a big actress like Preity otherwise. There might be this feeling of a one night love all through out the movie but you will be forced to believe that they are the perfect couple and everyone in the theater would like to see them get married by the end of the movie.

The movie has its own slow pace which is pleasant and not tiring as expected to watch. Camerawork has to be given credit for trying to avoid all the touristic air in Paris and take it merely as a romantic setting. The scene where Akaash shows Ishqk the Eiffel Tower coming to life with the lights being turned on will become your benchmark for your love proposal.ll the lights coming alive in the Eiffel Tower stays with you. If only love could be captured and frozen in its most majestic manifestations!

Interestingly the narration is fashioned like a fable with the legendary French actress Isabelle Adjani telling us about Ishkq's brief encounter with Akaash and its aftermath without letting us in to her own role in the romance. It's a cute little secret kept away from us for a while in a film where the main protagonists play out their emotions in full view and with disarming transparency.

This is Preity's grand comeback. A movie that can make you feel the butterflies in your stomach and one that doesn't overdo love like the current trend of movies.

Bollywood Lacks In Variation

Nandita says, Bollywood lacks in variation! 

 Nandita says, Bollywood lacks in variation!

Nandita Das was found at the proceeding Cannes Film Festival wherein she stressed on the fact that she had to put all her skills into action collectively during the making 'Firaaq'. While another prominent factor remains that it’s been five years and she recently found a story for her next. On the contrary she emphasized on the factor that it is indeed time taking element for an independent director compile it.

It remains a noteworthy fact, that it's been Nandita’s second stint at Cannes in addition to the  reason that she is here to serve on the Short Film Corner as well as Cine Foundation jury for which she expressed her feel of honour as she happens to love seeing shorts, the actor, director added.

The actor has acted in many short films at the same time admires the format, and regret bitterly they never find a mainstream platform. While Nandita furthered saying that short films have a different rhythm as well they stay with you, similar to the short stories that one reads and that we need to maintain our focus on thematic connectors to connect short films together to find theatrical release.  Nandita even added that she is happy a film like 'Bombay Talkies' which have been made by connecting together four shorts has been screened at Cannes.

The films screened at Cannes are admired by Nandita due to the fact that she finds a greater evidence to belief in the filmmakers. On the contrary, In India, economics interferes with art too much, she mentioned rudely.

Nandita was known to have pointed out that even countries like Romania, Turkey, Iran where perhaps five films are made a year, have cinematic gems, while in India, with even 1,000 films being made across regions, here are barely any as a prominent fact that our films are not pushing the boundaries to an critical extent.

During the concluding phase, she feels happy that there are a few young filmmakers trying to create a new wave of Indian cinema yet variety is missing in Bollywood. Nandita stresses that this is why we have had no contribution to world cinema after Satyajit Ray.

The true essence of cinematic excellence lies in it's actuality along with mindset of the film-maker as how he wants to present it to the world, enriched with utmost variety.

It's a great challenge to be accepted!

Furthermore, the Supreme Court was known to have rejected on Tuesday, to grant additional time to the actor to surrender, eliminating an appeal by a producer who wanted Sanjay to complete his under-production film.

In the early phase of the month, the apex court was known to have dismissed his appeal trying to obtain a review of the March 21 judgement. During the interval of time defending Sanjay’s firm belief by the special court in the 1993 Bombay blasts case, the Supreme Court had decreased the sentence from six years to five. Having it as an additional reason that the actor had already spent 18 months in jail, he will now have to serve time of 42 months in prison at the Yerwada jail in Pune, where he had been imprisoned earlier.

Korean Rapper PSY Cracks Jokes At Harvard

Korean Rapper PSY Cracks Jokes At Harvard

Korean rapper PSY cracks jokes at Harvard!

Arousing a fact of interest, South Korean rapper PSY was welcomed to Harvard University on Thursday night by dozens of screaming and shouting students and fans, as the "Gangnam Style" star participated in a conversation inside an ornate church dedicated to the memory of those who lost their lives in World War I.

PSY proceeded addressing students and faculty by noting that his presence at the Ivy League school “is so weird.”

Furthermore, he was known to have recalled spending four years studying management at Boston University while marveling at Harvard from afar. PSY joked about his academic performance while at school in Boston, saying he was known by a nickname of WWF — which, he said, stands for withdrawal, withdrawal, failure.

In fact, the pop star, whose real name happens to be Park Jae-sang, also joked that he is heard that he is the first person to make a speech at Harvard without a written script.

Harvard professor of Korean History Carter Eckert says the discussion is looking at PSY as a modern global digital culture phenomenon.


PSY cracked jokes throughout this speech and said he was very shocked as his “Gangnam Style” video went viral. He also mentioned that he was overwhelmed by its success and doesn’t realistically expect to replicate the feat. “Gangnam Style” was YouTube’s most-viewed video with more than 1.5 billion views, while his new single, “Gentleman” has more than 300 million views.

PSY continued saying that Gangnam style was not normal and that it was not standard rather that was an accident and accidents don’t happen often. It seems that he wondered aloud why American TV news shows start so early, joking that he had a brutal experience waking up early for rehearsal for appearances on morning news shows while he said that he recalled joining Madonna for rehearsal, saying he was surprised when she told him that he can touch her body anywhere while they were on stage.


To conclude, he said he cannot say he have been the best, but he can say have done his best for 13 years as a musician.
That's just crazy!

Go Goa Gone And Gippi Releases Today

Go Goa Gone and Gippi releases


Go Goa Gone and Gippi releases today!

Arosuing a fact of interest, two comedy movies will clash at the box-office today. Go Goa Gone is a zombie comedy directed by filmmaker duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, while Gippi is a comedy of errors from Karan Johar's Dharma Productions.

Going forward, Go Goa Gone features Saif Ali Khan who is also the producer, Kunal Khemu, Vir Das, Anand Tiwari and Puja Gupta in the lead. Three friends (Kunal, Vir and Anand) go for a trip to Goa where they met with Luna (Puja Gupta), a fun loving girl who invites them for an exclusive underground rave party on a remote island, hosted by Indo-Russian don, Boris (Saif). Their nightmare begins when zombies land crash the party.

Furthermore, it is known that the Directors Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK are also promoting 'Say no to drugs' message through the film. They disclosed that as the name suggests, the film is related to Goa but nothing depreciatory. The people in Mumbai and elsewhere have a perception about Goa that it is a place where people go to sit, relax, party, chill, but all in good sense. What happens there is their version of the story. On the contrary, there is a message at the end of the film - Say no to drugs. They expressed that if we do drugs then we will turn into a zombie.


Next on the release is Dharma Productions' Gippi which is directed by first-timer Sonam Nair. The film features newbies like Riya Vij, who plays the protagonist in the film, Jayati Modi and Taaha Shah while Divya Dutta plays Riya's mother in the film.

The film have been declared to revolve around a 13-year-old teenager, played by Riya, the ups and downs in her life and, how she manages with peer pressure and changes in her life. Divya Dutta says the movie will take audiences back to their childhood and everyone will feel that they have gone through this. Therefore, when we relate with any film or any promo, we definitely want to watch that film and that Gippi is one of those films and she think it will make its own mark beautifully.


Interestingly, the film's producer Karan Johar, who is launching director Sonam Nair with Gippi, feels that talent should not have a gender. While Karan Johar also added that Talent does not have a gender at all and it should not have a gender. Sonam Nair is a very talented young girl and it does not matter that she is a girl. As a special note, she is a very talented director.

That's 10th May 2013
Have a great FUN!
