Raaz 3 Poster

Not a huge fan of this genre of movies but at least the soundtrack will be ace looking at the people involved and when can you ever get enough of Bipasha Basu.

The poster seems like a zombie version of Janet Jackson’s 1993 Album ” Janet” handed over to a secondary school student who dabbles in Photoshop

But probably the most scary part of the poster are the words “3D” and directed by Vikram Bhatt.

But in any case BIPASHA!

Ep 38 RDB Interview with Kuly for Sheera Di Kaum

We had a chance to speak with Kuly, one third of the biggest Bhangra band of the moment RDB or Rhythm Bhangra Dhol known for their massive songs, international collaborations with acclaimed rappers like Snoop Dogg and Ludacris and their total domination of the Bollywood charts since working with Akshay Kumar on movies like Namaste London, Singh Is King, Kambakth Ishq and now Speedy Singhs/Breakaway.

Now Upodcast is not well versed in music ( unlike or friends The CurrySmugglers who are back with an amazing season!) but we had a chance to ask some interesting questions about the state of bhangra, the new found international audience and some behind the scenes gossip on how the industry works.

Above all Kuly was a very nice guy to speak with and although he was in the backseat of a car, he really took the time to answer all of our questions.

It’s a fun listen, check it out below and don’t forget to leave us a comment!

Here are some of the tracks RDB is famous for

You can find more info on their website and also their forthcoming album WorldWide.

Duelity: An Animated history of the world (both sides)

There are many theories about how our world started(one of which is that we are half-Cylon?). Here is an amazing prize winning animated short by graphic design artist Ryan Uhrich.

What he’s done is juxtapose two versions of how life started the Darwinian theory and the classic religious one but he’s switched the language on us.

The summary on the website is:

Duelity is a split-screen animation that tells both sides of the story of Earth’s origins in a dizzying and provocative journey through the history and language that marks human thought.
