Daawat-e-Ishq is a love story of a salesgirl who falls in love with a cook

Daawat-e-Ishq is an upcoming Bollywood movie with an element of romance. This film stars Parineeti Chopra and Aditya Roy Kapur in the lead roles. The film depicts the romance that takes place between individuals belonging to different cultures. In this film Parineeti plays the role of a Hyderabadi girl while Arjun Roy Kapur plays the role of a Lucknowi boy. The trailers and posters of this film promise to give us the filmy romance we have always loved to watch on-screen. Bollywood fans are in for a romantic treat with this film.

Parineeti Chopra plays the role of a girl from Hyderabad who works as a shoe sales girl. The male lead of this film, Aditya Roy Kapur plays the role of a Lucknowi chef. Summarizing it, this love story tells us about how a shoe sales girl fell in love with a chef. The title of this movie Daawat-e-Ishq actually means feast of love and this seems like a promising enough hint to have Bollywood fans go and watch the film.

The actors have been actively promoting the film. Recently we saw them on an Eid special episode titled ‘Daawat-e-Eid’ on a Zee T.V show. The actress Parineeti performed on a dance sequence with television actor Karanvir Bohra. The actors seemed to have become good friends over practice sessions of this performance. The actor said, “When I first met her I was glad to have met a girl who has an amazing sense of humor. While the two of us got along really well, I wish I could have had my wife meet her too. I’m sure my wife would have got along equally well with her. None-the-less, it was great fun to be shooting this Eid special. I wish everybody a very Happy Eid and hope everybody enjoys a delicious Eid with Dawaat-e-Ishq releasing around the same time.”

It will be nice to see the chemistry between this new on-screen Jodi. The duo was also seen at an event to launch the title track of their film. At this event they also pulled off a live singing stint. They sang the title track of this film in front of a live audience. A lot of actors have taken to singing in the recent past. While other actors like Shraddha Kapoor and Alia Bhatt sang an accrual song in the film, Parineeti and Aditya were happy with this small stint. Recently we also saw super star Salman Khan sing two songs for this film.

The song titled ‘Hangover’ was much loved by his fans. It was a very groovy romantic song with catchy lyrics. The song had a western twist to it. It will be interesting to watch how this film will fare at the box office. This film is set to hit the theatres on the 5th of September, same as Mary Kom and we should expect a lot of competition between them, even though they belong to two separate genres of movies. We hope we get whatever was promised to us from the trailer of this film.

Khoobsurat Movie Review

Khoobsurat is produced by Sonam’s sister Rhea Kapoor and directed by Shashanka Ghosh

The forthcoming film ‘Khoobsurat’ is the remake of the original 1980 film ‘Khubsoorat’. In this film we see Sonam Kapoor playing the lead role in this film. We will see Sonam play the role of a bubbly girl in this film. She plays the role of a free spirited individual. The male lead in this film is played by Fawad Afzal. This new on screen pairing is set to take us on a filmy ride shortly. This film has the fancy label of Disney on the poster of this film. Critics are expecting a lot from this film as it is set to match international standards of romantic comedies in collaboration with Disney for this film. This movie is produced by none other than Rhea Kapoor, Sonams sister who is her stylist and has an active career behind the cameras. The film is written by Shashanka Ghosh.

The male lead of this film, Fawad Afzal is an established Pakistani actor. He has a lot of movie roles to his credit on the other side of the border and this is set to be his debut in Bollywood. He adds to the list of newcomers in Bollywood to aspire to make it big and turn into super stars. His performance in this film will pave way for his future projects in Bollywood. The Indian audience has shown the actor a lot of appreciation on social networking sites. The actor seems to be blessed with pristine looks and we’re quite sure that he is ahead in the talent department too. He also happened to be an active part of a band in Pakistan. Fawad Afzal was also a part of the modeling industry. Here’s an interesting mix of a personality that we will get to see on screen. We wonder if he will be doing a singing stint like other actors did for their films recently.

The ever stylish fashionista Sonam Kapoor who is always captured wearing the best by the paparazzi will be seen in a casual and loud avatar in Khoobsurat film. In the poster and trailer we see her in very colorful attire. It will be interesting to watch Sonam take a break from her perfect fashion sense for a while. By the trailer we get to know that Sonam plays the character of a very clumsy girl who takes life as it comes. She has a very loud personality and lands up in a place where all the people are exactly the opposite of everything she is. She then feels like a misfit in that place but later falls in love with the royal prince who feels the same for her. The film revolves around how she adjusts to royal ways without losing her personality. This film is set to release on the 12th of September and promises to give us entertainment through this romantic comedy. Let’s see if this film wins the critics and audience. Sonam fans will definitely rush to theaters to watch this film

Mardaani tribute to the women police force of our nation

The film Mardaani is set to take us on an experience that is more than just entertaining. The makers of  Mardaani Movie have taken the decision to incorporate a social message in this film; in fact they have based the whole film on a story that fights against a social crime. In this film we will be exposed to all the problems that have been created in society due to the grave issue of female trafficking. Rani Mukerji plays the lead role in this film and her character is that of a fierce cop that fights against this social issue. From the poster and the trailer of this film, we see Rani in a completely new avatar and this change is refreshing. It will be interesting to see Rani in this new role which is not only challenging but also like an inspiration to others.

Mardaani Movie Images

The police force of our nation now has a number of women working fearlessly under them just as strong as any police man. Rani’s character shows exactly this and gives an inspiration to the women of this country who would like to join the police force sober or later. It also encourages the current women in the police force to be better at their work and to go forward without any fear. This film therefore appreciates the spirit of women in the police force and supports them in every way.

This film also diminishes the gender stereotype that says that women can’t successfully be a part of the police force. Another film that does the exact same thing in a way is ‘Mary Kom’, starring Priyanka Chopra. In this film, Priyanka plays the role of a champion boxer that won laurels and made us proud at the Olympics. People usually associate the profession or sport of boxing with masculinity but with this film we are inspired to think different and accept the fact that women can excel at such sports. This film actually revolves around the true life story of Mary Kom and her struggles through the journey of success.

While Rani plays the character of a cop, we will also see Ajay Devgn playing the character of a cop in the forthcoming film ‘Singham Returns’, which is the sequel to the film ‘Singham’. It will be interesting to watch which cop will make it big at the box office. ‘Singham Returns’ has taken a step further and appreciated the efforts f cops through a video they recently released. This video showcases policemen talking about their life and dedication towards their profession. It’s a very heart touching video that helps the common man relate to this profession.

We can see that Bollywood is the mood for making films that are not only entertaining but have as social value on the whole. Respecting the efforts put in by the police force to keep citizens safe in the city and going against gender stereotype is what we get from these films. Rani is very excited to give this tribute to the women in the police force.

Daawat-e-ishq music review

Song ‘Daawat-e-Ishq’ is a qawaali and is sung by ‘Jashn-e-Ishqa’ singer Javed Ali

Meet the Indian spicy couple from the Indian hubs of culture Gulrez (Parineeti Chopra) from Hyderabad and Tariq (Aditya Roy Kapur) from Lucknow in a love story straight from Yash Raj Films’ kitchen, where Love takes in all the flavors- Sweet, Spicy and Bitter!! This movie is a perfect package of romance, Indian culture and the delicious cuisine. Daawat-e-Ishq not only introduces the brand new never seen dashing couple of Aditya Roy Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra but also heeds Sajid-Wajid composing their first ever Yash Raj venture. Its obvious music enthusiasts are snoopy to know what is in stock for them from this out of the ordinary merger.

Daawat-e-Ishq’s songs have been penned by Kausar Munir while vocalists on the soundtrack include Javed Ali , Sonu Nigam, Shreya Ghoshal, Sunidhi Chauhan, Wajid and , Shalmali Kholgade. The title track is an energetic and catchy song which is a blend of qawaali and electronica sung by Sunidhi Chauhan and Javed Ali who has also sang the song ‘Jashn-e-Ishqa’ for the movie Gunday starring Ranvir Singh and Arjun Kapoor in the lead along with the hot and sexy Priyanka Chopra. There is a retro 1970s feel to the qawwali music of the song Daawat-e-Ishq, and takes us back to Laxmikant-Pyaarelal’s music. The song is a well written conversation & the singers have validated it well. Kausar Munir’s expert grasp of Urdu is only outstripped by his impressive esculent aspersion.

In all, it’s a energetic start to the soundtrack. This album definitely deserves thumbs up for its recreation of music and the experimenting blend of qaawali and rock. The songs are not that great but they are very well made and fresh as per the feel and look of the film, they fit in well. In summary, Daawat-e-Ishq is possibly the most disappointing soundtrack from the house of Yash Raj. The tracks suffer from a serious case of dullness, outdated-ness and mediocrity yet Kudos to the bold experimenting of two different forms of music-Qaawali and western. All the best to the Daawat-e-Ishq team and we hope the film fares better. We also hope that this new fun and lovely couple hit the bx office with their cute bubbly chemistry. All eyes on them! Film Daawat-e-Ishq is the second collaboration of Parineeti Chopra and Habib Faisal after the hit film Ishaqzaade and the very first collaboration between Aditya Roy Kapoor and him. Aditya Kapoor said, “It’s a pleasure to work with Habib. He is one of the finest filmmakers in the industry. It makes a big difference to work with such a filmmaker.”

Daawate-Ishq features Aashiqui 2 drunken master Aditya Roy Kapoor and the curvaceous bombshell Parineeti Chopra. This cute duo has never acted together on the silver screen so it will be fun and interesting to watch them together. We all know about the fun and bubbly side of Parineeti but Aditya Roy Kapoor whose always been drinking, this time will be seen in a quite different role. He is flirty, fun and has peppiness to his character. No more alcohol and gambling for this character.

The film features Parineeti Chopra, Aditya Roy Kapoor in lead roles, Karan Wahi, and Anupam Kher. The film is scheduled to hit the silver screens worldwide release on September 5, 2014.

Its Entertainment movie review image

Akshay Kumar sings for “It’s Entertainment”

Seems like soon all the music starts while become jobless as the stars of our industry are very keen on taking care of our music department as well. After Aliya Bhatt, Shraddha Kapoor and our very own Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar has given his voice to a new track in his upcoming movie It’s Entertainment.

Entertainment movie poster

The actor uploaded the YouTube link of the making of the song on micro-blogging site Twitter.“And here’s a brand new track from Entertainment sung by yours truly   Enjoy,” he tweeted with the link. Salman Khan also sang one of the tracks from his movie Kick. What is wrong in actors singing a song? In Hollywood people act and sing at the same time… It is a hard thing to do. Earlier only comedians used to do comedy. But today an actor does everything from doing comedy or playing a villain or singing or doing TV,” Akshay said. Akshay Kumar has also sung a music track titled Mujh Mai Tu in Special 26. So this is not the first time he is exploring this area.

Its Entertainment is an upcoming comedy film starring Akshay Kumar, Tamannah, Johnny Lever, Krushna Abhishek and an adorable Golden Retriever named Junior. The owner of Junior leaves behind his assets in the name of the dog. The movie basically revolves around how Akshay Kumar and Krushna Abhishek try to get hold of his property unlawfully and the movie unfolds. Veteran actors like Mithun Chakraborty, Prakash Raj also star in the movie in prominent roles. This movie promises to be a hardcore entertainer. The movie, produced by Ramesh .S. Taurani, head honcho of Tips Films and directed by Farhad-Sajid director duo. The movie is expected to hit the screens by 8 August 2014 in India and USA. It is reported that the dog received better retreatment than Akshay Kumar itself. Akshay Kumar has no body doubles while Junior has 6. He was only called for close up shots. He had 4 to 5 caretakers to look after all his needs. Isn’t that really lucky? Junior received the best treatment ever. Bollywood has witnessed many dog oriented movies like you few examples of our favorite Bollywood dog films:

Teri Meherbaniyan: Moti, the dog is the only eye witnesses of his master Jackie Shroff’s brutal murder and how he seeks revenge for his masters murder.

Khoon Bhari Maang The film shows the bond the dog, Jumbo shares with his master Aarti (Rekha). There is a scene in the movie where Rekha comes back after a plastic surgery everyone fails to recognize her but Jumbo realizes it’s her and breaks free and runs towards her. This movie is going to more of a comedy movie than an emotional one. The pooch is shown taking teaching Akshay Kumar a lesson in the movies trailer. The movie trailer looks quite impressive and the expectations are limitless. Let’s hope Akshay and Junior rock the box office charts this season. And it’s been a long time since we have seen a movie starring a dog. Kudos t Junior and Akshay Kumar’s acting skills.

Daawat-e-ishq music review

Aditya Roy Kapoor learnt cooking for Daawat e Ishq

Dawaat-e-Ishq is an Indian Romantic comedy drama that also focuses on social issues like Dowry. The movie is directed and produced by Habib Faisal and Aditya Chopra respectively under the banner of Yash Raj Films. It features Aditya Roy Kapur and Parineeti Chopra in the lead roles.

The movie is about the romantic of Gulrez “Gullu” Qadir (Parineeti Chopra) a Hyderabadi shoe-sales girl who has a disliking towards the feeling of love because of her bitter encounters with dowry-seeking men; and Tariq “Taru” Haidar (Aditya roy Kapoor) a Lucknawi cook who can charm anybody with the magical flavours of his biryani and kebabs. There is a clash portrait between the Hyderabad and Lucknow culture. A source says, “Yes the film has a message for the audience, but it does not preach. Keeping the entertainment quotient in mind, the crux of the story revolves around the issue of dowry.” The trailer features Parineeti in her all time favourite bubble avatar whereas Aditya looks very different from his previous movie Asshique2. He wears a tight fitting t-shirt and his lips are all red, after effects of chewing pan all the time and ofcourse the clash of the two families. The music of the movie has managed to gain very few fans. In summary, Daawat-e-Ishq movie is possibly the most disappointing soundtrack from the house of Yash Raj. The tracks suffer from a serious case of dullness, outdated-ness and mediocrity yet Kudos to the bold experimenting of two different forms of music-Qaawali and western. All the best to the Daawat-e-Ishq team and we hope the film fares better. So for the shooting of the movie Aditya actually had to learn how to cook. He also learned how to make Zunka Bhakar.

Last year Aditya Chopra’s Asshique2 won many awards as well as hearts. Aditya gained a lot of appraisal for his acting skills and Parineeti has also set a benchmark in the industry with her acting skill. Her movies like Ishaqzaade, Shud Desi Romance and Hasee Tho Phasee. Hope the new onscreen jodi impresses the audience and the movie does well. The plot of the movie is like any other Bollywood movie so let’s hope for the best. The movie is due for initial release on 5th September.

Daawat-e-ishq music review

Daawat-e-Ishq’ pair Parineeti Chopra and Aditya Roy Kapoor Celebrate Eid on Sets of ‘Qubool Hai’

Recently we’ve seen many film actors promoting their movies on television screens through various series. This technique for promoting movies has become quite popular and is done with the intention of pulling in small screen audience to enter the cinema world. This has also proved beneficial for many movies. We saw Parineeti Chopra and Aditya Roy Kapur promote their forthcoming film Daawat-e-Ishq on the sets of a television series on Zee T.V. Zee T.v’s Daawat-e-Eid will feature the lead actors of the forthcoming film Daawat-e-Ishq along with the celebrations of Eid. In this special episode of the series we will see Parineeti Chopra perform on a dance number with television actor Karanvir Bohra. The actor quite enjoyed this experience and even bonded with Parineeti over their practices.

Karanvir Expressed his excitement as he said,” “When I first met her I was glad to have met a girl who has an amazing sense of humor. While the two of us got along really well, I wish I could have had my wife meet her too. I’m sure my wife would have got along equally well with her. None-the-less, it was great fun to be shooting this Eid special. I wish everybody a very Happy Eid and hope everybody enjoys a delicious Eid with Dawaat-e-Ishq releasing around the same time.” It is very nice to see big screen actors mix along with small screen actors in this way. The whole merging of Television and movies doesn’t end at promotions. We have seen so many television actors become a part of the big screen through movies. Recently we saw television actor Sushant Singh play a role in the film ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’. He received a lot of positive response for this role. We also will be seeing television actor Dayanand Shetty who is the famous actor from the television series ‘C.I.D’, play a role in the forthcoming film ‘Singham Returns’. It will be interesting to watch his performance as an actor alongside Bollywood star Ajay Devgn.

While television actors are venturing into movies, we see filmstars be a part of the small screen. Recently the television series titled ‘Yudh’ stars Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role. This show has been receiving a good response. Earlier we also saw Anil Kapoor play a role in the television series titled ‘24’. Actors seem to be exploring their options in their career as they venture into movies and television series. While some of them strictly stick to acting the others don’t mind playing the role of a host. We will see Salman Khan hosting the next season of the popular television reality series ‘Bigg Boss’. He has successfully remained the host of the same for the last few seasons.

As for Daawat-e-Ishq’, which is releasing on the 5th of September, promotions are on full swing. Parineeti Chopra and Aditya Roy Kapur even sang a song in front of a live audience to promote the title song of the film. It will be interesting to watch how this film will fare at the box office.

Mary Kom Movie Poster

Priyanka Chopra to fights gender stereotypes as Mary Kom

Priyanka Chopra is known to take up challenging roles in her career as an actor. Earlier we saw her in films like Fashion and Barfi where she gave an outstanding performance. Her role in ‘7 Khoon Maaf’ was also commendable. Now we will see the actress in the upcoming biopic ‘Mary Kom’. In this film she will lay the role of a boxer. This film revolves around Mary Kom who is a champion boxer that won laurels at the Olympics and is known worldwide. This film seems to have taken an inspiration from the likes of ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ which was also a biopic on the life of champion athlete Milkha Singh. The film Mary Kom is expected to do well at the box office.

A lot has been said about Priyanka’s role in this film which is woman centric and depicts women empowerment. She fights the whole terminology of gender stereo types by her performance and by telling the story of Mary Kom’s struggles and achievements through this film. People always associate the sport of boxing with masculinity. This film is set to reset people’s mindsets and thinking to be open to the idea of women not only getting into something like boxing, but excelling in it She sets an example to the world that women can achieve anything if they set their minds to achieve it.

This film will change the way people think about women and will definitely work against the thinking that women are weak willed and are not capable of possessing strength. By the trailer of this film we get a glimpse of what we should expect from this film. The poster of this film showcases a very strong image of Priyanka Chopra and was much appreciated by the critics. For this film, she had to cut off the glam quotient to look authentic in her role as a boxer.

In the trailer we see the actress in a power packed performance. The trailer has set the standards very high for this film. Critics are expecting a lot from this performance of  Priyanka in this role as a champion boxer. She is also likely to win awards for her performance in this role. This is not the only woman centric role we will see. We will also see Rani Mukerji playing the role of a cop in the film ‘Mardaani’. In this film Rani will play a very strong character of a cop that will stop at nothing to eradicate the social problem of female trafficking. Media and movies have a lot of impact on society and films like these are bound to influence their thinking in some way.

It will be interesting to watch more and more films that support women and portray them as true leaders who can achieve anything a man can. Kudos to filmmakers to take the efforts in providing us films that give out a social message instead of just plainly entertaining us like all the rest of the films.

Mardaani Movie Poster

Rani talks about self defense technique

Rani Mukerji is making a come-back with the film ‘Mardaani’. The last film that we saw her in was ‘Talaash’, in which the actress played a supporting role. After giving outstanding performances in films like ‘Black’, Rani’s magic on screen has slowly faded away. This does not question her acting skills, but her presence in movies. Now with the release of Mardaani, Rani is ready to take the lead again as she plays the strong and fierce character of a cop in this film. This film focuses on the issue of female trafficking and fights against it.

Mardaani Moview Wallpaper

The first poster of Mardaani showed the actress giving a stern look as she held a gun in one hand. Rani received a lot of positive response from this poster. The second official poster of this film has been released and again it showcases Rani’s character holding down a goon. To support this, the filmmakers have posted a video on a popular social networking site. This video showcases Rani talking about self defense techniques. This video starts with a line that says, ‘The journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step. This is a very motivational video that helps women prepare themselves for unfortunate situations.

Rani Mukerji expressed her thoughts about playing this role in an interview as she said that she was proud to be a huge part of such a noble cause that encourages society to fight against social evils. In an interview she also expressed her love for acting as she said that acting was her main priority and that she chooses to always stay dedicated towards it. She also mentions her decision to stay connected with her fans by keeping her maiden name and not changing it to ‘Rani Chopra’.

The actress has been away from the glare of the media for quite a long time now. Tabloids speculate that this could be the effect of her marriage to Aditya Chopra. As we know, Aditya Chopra is very reserved when it comes to the media and does not like attention from the limelight. She has only made a few public appearances on account of promotional activities for her movie ‘Mardaani’. Her husband Aditya also happens to be the producer of this movie. This in fact makes it a perfect comeback movie for Rani. Along with having an ultra fierce and challenging role, she also got to work with her husband. Rani and Aditya got married far away in Italy, away from shutterbugs. When asked about their decision in doing so, Rani replied saying that it was her husband Aditya Chopra’s idea to have a hush-hush affair. We hope this film turns out to be successful and that Rani’s career gets a boost after this film. Mardaani refers to masculine power and the very fact that Rani Mukerji plays the lead role in this film suggests an evolution in thinking and good efforts put in by the filmmakers to empower women and fight against the evil that goes against women in society.

Singham Returns Poster

Chemistry between Kareena and Ajay Devgn in Singham Returns

Singham Returns is the sequel to Singham starring Ajay Devgn in the lead role. In this film we see Ajay Devgn playing the role of a cop who is out to save his city. In this film, he plays a very strong character of a cop who will stop at nothing when it comes to showing dedication towards his role as a cop. In this film, Kareena Kapoor plays his loves interest. Recently, we got to see glimpses of the on screen chemistry we should expect from Ajay Devgn and Kareena Kapoor and judging by what we were shown, we can say that they do manage to pull off some great on screen chemistry.

In this film, Kareena plays the role of a Maharashtrian girl Though her look in Singham Returns  is not ultra glamorous, she manages to look beautiful even with simplicity. This is the first time Kareena will be playing such a role and she has taken a lot of efforts to match up to what was expected from her. She was expected to speak fluent Marathi in some of the scenes. The actress knew a little bit of the required language but found it difficult to say fluent dialogues with confidence. She then decided to practice a little by talking to her Mahatrashtrian friends more often and brush up on her language skills. The actress has always taken up challenging roles and remained successful in portraying them to perfection. Earlier we saw her play the role of a Punjabi girl and even a Muslim girl. It will be interesting to watch this actress in a Maharashtrian avatar.

As we can see from the posters, Ajay Devgn is set to steal all limelight for Singham Returns Movie with his much loved role. His character is also loved in actual life scenario with policemen respecting the thought behind this film. A video was released by the filmmakers that received a lot of appreciation from the audience. In this video, we see real life cops talking about their dedication for their job and how they go through every day struggles. They also spoke about how the character of Ajay Devgn in the movie appealed to them and that people referred to them as ‘Singham’ many times. They also felt proud as the media is acknowledging their efforts through ‘Singham Returns’.

This is one action movie we cannot afford to miss out on. Rohit Shetty promises to give his best in directing the most action packed movie of Bollywood. Another movie that could give this film competition is ‘Mardaani’ as it revolves around the central character of a cop played by Rani Mukerji. It seems like Bollywood is really focusing on policemen and their profession in an effort to honor them and appreciate their efforts for keeping our city safe. It will be interesting to watch what this film receives at the box-office and whether it manages to cross the returns of ‘Singham’. Let’s hope the chemistry between Kareena and Ajay Devgn makes up for all the overdose of action we are about to receive.
