Amit Trivedi

New Trailer Lootera: Reveals more of the plot!

We just recorded a massive episode of UPodcast where we do 2013 mid year wrap up and also talk about the movies we are looking forward to in the 2nd half of the year. The one movie that both our guests FilmiGirlGetfilmy and Upodcast were very much excited for was Vikramaditya Motwane’s Ranveer Singh – Sonakshi Sinha starrer Lootera, slated for a July 5th release.

Until now not too much was revealed in the first trailer except that it was a romance set in the 50’s. The 2nd trailer changes that and give us much more of the story which seems to be Indiana Jones meets Catch Me If You Can added with some desi tadka.

 

 

How beautiful does that look?

Last time Ranveer Singh played a con man in Ladies vs Ricky Bahl wasn’t met with the kind of success as his debut so it’s quite interesting he is taking on what seems to be another role of a scam artist. As I mentioned during the UPodcast recording for me this is Sonakshi’s litmus test, she has the talent and screen presence but until now has been stuck doing inconsequential roles paired opposite much older heroes.

Director Vikramaditya Motwane’ s following up the critically acclaimed Udaan teaming up with Balaji entertainment which is an interesting collaboration. I have been listenting to the Amit Trivedi’s soundtrack pretty much non stop.

There is a lot riding on Lootera and I’m liking what I’m seeing until now.

Movies you might have missed in 2012 (Bollywood)

It’s that time of year again where we start wrapping up and looking back at the year that was.

As every year we will be having our big yearly Upodcast episode with loads of our blogger friends and this year me might even do a little something special.

You can still check out episodes from previous years:

Best of 2012 with guests Roti Kapada Aur Rum, Filmigirl and CurryBear

Mid Year Wrap up 2010 featuring Beth from BethlovesBollywood, Katherine from Totally Filmi and Filmigirl

To start things off,

Here is a list of 6 movies that you might have missed this year or probably won’t be featured on any “Best Of” List but deserves at least a watch!

Tere Naal Love Hogaya

Both Geneliza Desouza and Ritesh Deshmukh seem to be actors that we root for and we were glad to see them take on lead role after their debut together with Teri Meri Kasam (a movie impossible to find apparently). The movie got sidelined by the real life marriage of the actors and lost as its release was scheduled at the back end of a barrage of other rom com’s.

Although the story line has a very strong déjà vu feeling (Kidnapping ends in Love with the 2nd half from DDLJ), director Mandeep Kumar manages to add more life to Tere Naal Love Hogaya than it deserves.

It’s available on Netflix so do give it a spin as it’s head above Ek Tu Aur Ek Main at least, and where the main leads actually have chemistry together.
