Top 5 moments of ‘Bigg Boss 8′ till now: Diandra, Gautam’s kiss, P3G’s break up

Top 5 moments of ‘Bigg Boss 8′ till now: Diandra, Gautam’s kiss, P3G’s break up | Entertainment | Scoop.it

The ‘Bigg Boss’ house isn’t a house anymore. It’s a home. Home sweet home. And the sweetness juts oozes out of the many kisses being shared by the inmates. So be it the erstwhile undying and now dying love of P3G, or Gautam – Diandra’s whisking-into-the-bathroom-and-kissing act, this ‘home’ is a packet full of e-motions. The latest to join the ‘lovers’ are Sonali Raut and Upen Patel. Though we are quite unsure of what led Sonali to switch sides to Upen, as she was earlier seen confessing her ‘love’ to Gautam Gulati, she was seen daring Upen Patel to kiss her. And all this while, the ‘meany’ Karishma Tanna was seen motivating the shy one in question – Upen. The duo actually came close to each other and had an intimate moment where Upen gave a peck on Sonali’s cheek. Before that, Sonali had asked for turning the cameras to other side, to which the confident Karishma replied that the makers would not telecast it. - See more at: http://indianexpress.com/article/entertainment/television/of-kisses-and-misses-top-5-moments-of-bigg-boss-8-till-now/#sthash.8vj3lUdT.dpuf

லிங்கா சினிமா விமர்சனம் | Lingaa Movie Review | Entertainment | Scoop.it

நடிகர் : ரஜினிகாந்த் 
நடிகை : சோனாக்ஷி சின்ஹா, அனுஷ்கா
இயக்கம்: கே.எஸ்.ரவிக்குமார்
இசை: ஏ.ஆர்.ரஹ்மான்
தயாரிப்பு: ராக்லைன் வெங்கடேஷ்

50 ஆண்டுகளுக்கு முன்பு கொடூரமான தண்ணீர்ப் பஞ்சம் வருகிறது. அதைப் போக்குவதற்காக கலெக்டர் ரஜினி இன்ஜினீயராகி தன் சொந்த செலவில் ஆற்றின் குறுக்கே அணை கட்ட முயற்சிக்கிறார். அப்போது சமூக விரோதக் கூட்டம் ஆங்கிலேயருடன் சேர்ந்துகொண்டு அணை கட்டுவதைத் தடுத்து நிறுத்துகிறது. எனக்கு இந்துவும் வேணாம், கிறித்தவரும் வேணாம். முஸ்லிமும் வேணாம். செட்டியார், முதலியார், நாடார் வேணாம். இந்தியனா இருக்குறவங்க மட்டும் என் கூட வாங்க என்று ரஜினி அழைக்கிறார். மக்கள் படை திரண்டு வருகிறது. அவர்களோடு இணைந்து அணை கட்டுகிறார்.

ஊர் நாட்டாமை விஜயகுமார் ரஜினியை நினைத்துப் பெருமைப்படுகிறார். அணை கட்டுவதற்கு உதவியாகவும், ரஜினிக்கு ஆறுதலாகவும் இருக்கும் சோனாக்ஷி சின்ஹா சந்தோஷப்படுகிறார். அப்போதுதான் நடக்கக்கூடாத அந்த விபரீதம் நடக்கிறது. ஆங்கிலேயருக்குக் கைத்தடியாக இருக்கும் ஆர்.சுந்தர்ராஜன் அணை திறப்பு விழாவிற்கு வரும் ரஜினியை அவமானப்படுத்துகிறார். இதனால், மனம் கலங்கும் ரஜினி அணை திறக்காமலேயே சென்றுவிடுகிறார். ரஜினியுடன் சோனாக்‌ஷி சின்ஹாவும், சோனாக்‌ஷி தந்தை ராதாரவியும் சென்றுவிடுகிறார்கள். அதற்குப் பிறகு அந்த அணையை மக்கள் கடந்து செல்லும்போது அடிக்கடி விபத்து நடக்கிறது. சிலர் கொலை செய்யப்படுகிறார்கள். அணை கட்டிய ரஜினியை அவமானப்படுத்தியதால்தான் இப்படியெல்லாம் நடக்கிறது என்று கருதும் மக்கள் பல ஆண்டுகளுக்குப் பிறகு அவரை தேடிக் கண்டுபிடித்து அழைத்து வருகிறார்கள். அவர் வந்ததும் என்ன நடக்கிறது என்பது ஒரு கதை.

அடுத்து இன்னொரு ரஜினியின் கதை. எந்த கட்டுப்பாடும் இல்லாமல் அடிதடி, திருட்டு, கடத்தல் என வாழும் தாதா ரஜினி. எந்த இடத்தில் வைரம் கிடைத்தாலும் அதைக் கொள்ளையடித்து விட்டுதான் அடுத்த வேலை பார்ப்பார். அவரை போலீஸ் வலைவீசி தேடுகிறது. அணை வழியாக வரும் ரஜினி அங்கேயே தலைமறைவாகி விடுகிறார். அப்போதுதான் அந்த அணைக்குள் ஒரு கூட்டம் ஒளிந்திருந்து வழிப்பறி செய்வது, கொலை செய்வது பெண்களை மானபங்கபடுத்துவது போன்ற காரியங்களை செய்து வருவதைக் கண்டுபிடிக்கிறார். அந்த சமயத்தில் பெரியவர் ரஜினியை சந்திக்கிறார். மனம் திருந்துகிறார். இந்நிலையில் பெரியவர் ரஜினியும், அணையில் பதுங்க வந்த வில்லன் ரஜினியும் இணைந்து எப்படி அணையை மீட்டுக் மக்களை காப்பாற்றுகிறார்கள் என்பதுதான் ‘லிங்கா’ படத்தின் மீதிக்கதை. அனுஷ்கா வழிப்பறிக் கொள்ளையர்களைப் பிடிக்கும் வீராங்கனையாக நடிக்கிறார். தாதா ரஜினிக்கு அனுஷ்காதான் ஜோடி. தேவ் கில் சமூக விரோதக் கூட்டத்தில் கலகம் செய்யும் நபராக நடிக்கிறார். பெரியவர் ரஜினியுடன் மோதும் தேவ் கில் சிறைக்குச் செல்கிறார். தண்டனை முடிந்துவந்த உடன் மீண்டும் ரஜினியுடன் மோதுகிறார்.

From model to actress: Deepika, the queen of Rs 100 cr grossing mediocre films

From model to actress: Deepika, the queen of Rs 100 cr grossing mediocre films | Entertainment | Scoop.it

From being a model to becoming an actress, Deepika Padukone's transformation has happened in the last two years. Although the actress' debut film with Shah Rukh Khan,Om Shanti Om (2007) was an undisputed hit, she faced a dry patch after that. With films like Chandni Chowk to China and Lafangey Parindey, the actress almost hit rock bottom.

But in last three years we have seen her make a come back and how!

Starting from signing big banner films to featuring in multi starrer, the actor has taken all the right steps to revive her career and if the box office numbers are any indication, her efforts have paid off.

Padukone bagged six films worth Rs 100 crore in the last two years.

What made Padukone stand apart from her contemporaries was not just how she chose her every film but also how she improved her performance with every film.

From being called 'as stiff as a model' to being the pet of the critics,  the actress has only gotten better with each passing film. The actress has had her falls and slips, but she also has gained an edge over her contemporaries like Sonam Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and the likes.

The turning point in Padukone's career was Cocktail. With Cocktail, India discovered that the actress has the hottest legs that ever debuted on silver screen.We also found out that Padukone wasn't as bad an actress as films like Karthik Calling Karthik andHousefull made her to be.

Padukone carried the entire film on her back. Padukone's Veronica was sexy, smart and independent and someone who loves to party and drink a lot.

While Padukone looked effortlessly sexy and comfortably slipped into the character of the fun loving girl, she surpassed our expectations in emotional scenes where we saw a vulnerable Veronica, desperate for love, forlorn and longing for companionship.

A still from the film Cocktail.

Padukone's next big hit, that made Rs 100 crore at the box office, after Cocktail, wasRace 2. With a loaded gun in a holster up her thigh, Padukone was everything that Race 2 expected her to be — an eye candy. Long legs, and beach curls featured prominently in the film. In Race 2, there was no trace of the Padukone we saw in Cocktail and at best she resembled a decked up wooden doll. While she barely used her acting skills for this film, rest assure that she wasn't the worst part about Race 2.

The disastrous Race 2 was followed by Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani which was one of the highest earner of 2012.

In this film, we see Padukone go from Betty to Veronica, for no apparent reason but to accommodate Manish Malhotra's lehengas and acknowledge her super flat midriff.

Padukone plays Naina in the film, a nerdy medical student who transforms into a sexy woman faster than it takes for you to make maggi. However, for the rest of the film, Padukone has surprisingly little to do.

As a doctor, who wears fake geeky glasses and prefers to wear floral dresses in Manali snow (on tights of course) she is utterly unconvincing.

However, post her transformation, Padukone looks more like her supermodel self. While obviously her performance was neither nuanced nor worth remembering, Padukone manages an effortless chemistry with ex-beau, Ranbir Kapoor. Kapoor and Padukone make the half baked script work and although there are very few romantic scenes, the pair makes the romance come alive onscreen.

 

In Chennai Express, Padukone achieved an unthinkable feat, she steals Shah Rukh Khan's thunder. From Madhuri Dixit in Anjaam to Kajol in My Name Is Khan, after two decades of women failing to outshine Khan (even in women centric films), Padukone finally beat him to the punch in a film that was a commercial potboiler.

Her Meenalochni "Meena" Azhagusundaram was everything that's wrong with Bollywood's representation of Tamilians and while many found it offensive to stereotype in such fashion, the actress still managed to make people laugh with her caricaturish Tamil accent and queer mannerisms. The film no doubt was a hit, like most SRK films are but it didn't stop at that and entered Rs 200 crore club breaking Aamir Khan's 3 Idiot's record.

 

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela was the first film where Padukone was a bigger star than her co-actor, Ranveer Singh.

The film had its flaws, no doubt and while it is hard to take in an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet where the lead pair gets mutilated and there are rape scenes, the film worked for the chemistry between the lead pair. Reportedly an offscreen brewing between Singh and Padukone is what heated things up onscreen as well. However, Padukone was pitch perfect as the feisty Leela.

While she looked lovely in beautiful bandhni lehengas and did garba as if she has won Miss Garba Night since the age of 3, the actress made the film a little tolerable, if not watchable, in the second half.

 

Deepika Padukone's performance as bar dancer Mohini in Happy New Year has been mostly panned by critics . According to a review of the film, "Padukone's Mohini makes the airheaded heroines of ’80s’ movies seem like feminist icons. The ones who will really enjoy Padukone’s appearances in HNY are those who work in Bombay Times, particularly when Mohini falls in love with Charlie as he describes her “booty” and how “breast-taking” she is.

However, despite getting horrible reviews, the film has already crossed Rs 100 crore mark, making this the sixth Padukone film to join the Rs 100 crore club.

Delhi taxi rape angers B-Town celebs

Delhi taxi rape angers B-Town celebs | Entertainment | Scoop.it

The news of a 25-year-old woman’s rape by a taxi driver in New Delhi  has “appalled” filmmaker Karan Johar, while Bollywood star Akshay Kumar wonders “how many more such incidents before we have stricter laws?” (Read – Delhi rape case: Cabbie Shiv Kumar Yadav arrested in Mathura, notice sent to Uber MD)

A 25-year-old woman was allegedly raped by a cab driver on Friday night after she took the cab around 9.30 p.m. from Vasant Vihar area in the capital – the city where six rapes and 14 molestation cases were reported every day the first four months of 2014. (Read: Delhi govt considering cancellation of Uber’s permit to operate in Delhi)

Angered by the incident, here’s what the stars tweeted:

Akshay Kumar: You hire a cab thinking its safer and pay more but sadly even that isn’t an option anymore. Not sure how many more such incidents before we have stricter laws! #DelhiShamedAgain

Karan Johar: Appalled at the @Uber incident!! If they didn’t do an adequate background check of the driver they have no reason to operate anywhere!!!!

Rohit Roy: Just the other day, a friend was recommending Uber very highly… Now this!! Appalling. It’s like the guard at ur home robbing U!!

Vishal Dadlani: Taking a cab alone at night? Take a picture of the driver, with the numberplate, & send it to a friend. Should act as a basic deterrent.

According to a recent compilation of data by Delhi Police, 616 rapes and 1,336 molestation cases were registered between January 1 and April 30 – a 36 percent increase in rape cases compared to around 450 cases registered in the same period last year.

Data of the first four months of 2014 show that six rapes and 14 molestation cases have been reported every day. Police, however, claim to have solved almost 90 percent of the cases.

Cases of molestation recorded in the same corresponding period show a similar rise with over 1,000 registered cases.

Bollywood stars who desperately need a hit

Bollywood stars who desperately need a hit | Entertainment | Scoop.it
The deciding factor between a 'blockbuster' and a 'bombed buster' movie, especially in Bollywood, has now been restrained to the box office collections only. The better the amount, the bigger the hit it is considered to be. 100 crore club and 200 crore club are the new trends. But one thing, that is conveniently overlooked by our Bollywood stars, is that these clubs and huge collections exist only because of the face value they have generated through their past 'hit (critically acclaimed and praised by audience) movies.' In the last couple of years, we have seen a number of movies where there is no story in the storyline. It starts with glamour, dance, romance and ends with some flying cars and zero gravity action sequences. Let's take a look at those celebrities who actually need a hit, not in terms of collection but in terms of critical acclaim from the audience and critics.
Vicsri's insight:

Shah Rukh Khan: The King of Bollwood, who has given us a series of hits, nowadays seems lagging behind when it comes to laudable scripts. Though his every release is a blockbuster at the box office, his fans expect much more than what is being delivered. Even his latest release, Happy New Year, minted around Rs 203 crore at the Indian box office, but we, as audience, would love to see him bounce back with some challenging roles like those in Chak De India, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Veer-Zaara etc. Although he is and will always be called the ‘Baadshah of Bollywood’, we would love to see him in those heart winning roles again. 

Saif Ali Khan: When we talk of versatile actors in the industry, our ‘Nawab’ can never be missed out from the list. Having proven his acting capabilities in movies like Hum Tum, Kurbaan, Race and Omkara, Saif is among the Khans who can run a film by his mere presence. But the recent series of flops is something that cannot be missed either. AfterCocktail, which released in 2012, Saif is yet to deliver another blockbuster. While few movies which he chose to do after Cocktail, like Go Goa Gone and Race 2, recovered the amount that was invested on them, many could not. Bullet Raja and Humshakalsemerged as clear disasters at the box office. Khan has always been critically acclaimed for his versatility and now is the time for him to deliver something meritorious. 

Emraan Hashmi: With his latest release Ungli having not performed well, critically and in terms of collection, the ‘serial kisser’ of Bollywood is among the actors for whom giving a hit has now become more of a need than demand. Shanghai, which released in 2012, was the last hit film for which Hashmi was critically acclaimed. But ever since that movie, his graph has only declined. There are more average or below average films in his kitty in comparison to the fewer hits he has given. And we all are eagerly waiting for him to give us another blockbuster performance like Jannat

Abhishek Bachchan: Even after his latest release, Happy New Year, emerged as a commercial hit, we are not quite satisfied with Abhishek's performance. In fact, we observe all his commercial hits have been multi- starrers. The Junior Bachchan, who is often being over shadowed by the work of his dad, needs to deliver a hard-hitting role. After his epic performance in Guru, we can’t let him settle down with something like ‘Nandu’ in Happy New Year.  

Imran Khan: Ever since his Bollywood debut, Imran is known for only two things - his ‘mamujaan’ Aamir Khan, and his two hit films, Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na and Delhi Belly. Since then, he has acted in several films but none of them stood up to even average spot, forget blockbuster. Currently, Imran is shooting for his next titled Katti Batti, with Kangna Ranaut. We hope the film emerges a hit, even critically.

Arjun Kapoor’s Superman, Anushka Sharma-Sushant Singh Rajput’s Chaar Kadam top the charts this week!

Vicsri's insight:

Here is the list of songs that have become a hit this week

It’s Trending Tunes day at BollywoodLife. In this section, we bring you a list of five songs that are topping the charts this week. Take a look.

Superman - The song from the upcoming film, Tevar features Arjun Kapoor, who is paying a ode to his real life mentor Salman Khan. And it’s a song, which all Salman fans would love to hear. It’s an absolute delight to watch Arjun trying to imitate his mentor in the song. And he does a pretty darn good job.

Radha Nachegi - Again this is a song from Tevar, which features Sonakshi Sinha. The song is picturised on a grand scale, with expensive sets and incredible cinematography. Plus Sona’s amazing dance moves in this one are something to watch out for.

Chaar Kadam – This song from Rajkumar Hirani’s upcoming film, PK is a romantic track that doesn’t feature Aamir Khan. Instead, it shows the aww-worthy chemistry between Sushant Singh Rajput and Anushka Sharma and leaves a refreshing after-taste. Chaar Kadam is an easy-breezy romantic track picturised in stunning locations.

Let’s Celebrate - While Superman and Radha Nachegi featured Arjun and Sonakshi seperately,Let’s Celebrate song from Tevar features the duo together along with Pakistani-Dutch singer Imran Khan, who has crooned this party number. And all of them are redefining swag in this one, we have to admit.

Dance Basanti – Shraddha Kapoor’s first item number from the recently released film, Ungli is quite catchy. The song features Emraan Hashmi along with the Kapoor lass, who is looking smoking hot in her red outfit. The track is definitely worth watching and hearing.

Waiter arrested for sending threat messages to Madhuri Dixit

 A 23-year-old man who allegedly sent threat messages to Bollywood actress Madhuri Dixit on her mobile phone in a bid to extort money has landed in police net.

Praveenkumar Pradhan, a waiter by profession who threatened to kill the popular actress' children and claimed to have links with the underworld, was arrested yesterday. The mobile phone he used to send offensive messages has also been recovered, police said today.

"The accused was today produced before a court which remanded him in police custody till tomorrow," said Sunil Ghosalkar, Senior Inspector at Cyber Police Station in suburban Bandra.

According to police, Madhuri's personal assistant on 28 November approached the cyber cell alleging she had received four threatening text messages on her mobile phone from an unidentified person at about 3 am on 25 November.

"The messages were addressed to Madhuri Dixit and the sender threatened to kill her children," said another officer.

More threat messages were sent on her phone in the next three days.

"In one of the messages, Pradhan claimed he was associated with the gang of underworld don Chhota Rajan. The accused said he had trained a 15-year-old boy in handling weapons and bombs and this teenager would barge into Dixit's home to extort money," said the officer, who did not wish to be named.

The leads collected during the probe took police to Pradhan, who was picked up and questioned. Pradhan, who works in a restaurant, has confessed to the crime, police said.

He told interrogators he would have demanded the exact amount he needed if either Madhuri or her PA would have made phone calls to him, police said.

Police were verifying if he was actually associated with any organised criminal gang or was simply bragging.

The accused claimed to have made threatening phone calls to some film personalities in the past, police said, adding further probe was on.
