Ep 45: Tum Mere Ho Review, Dabangg 3 and Commando 3 Trailer reactions

Episode 45 of Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast is a blast from the past – specifically, Aamir Khan’s past. Tum Mere Ho (1990), directed by Tahir Hussain a.k.a. The Aamir Dad has everything: a wronged and vengeful snake mom, a grubby dad, a lost heir, a damsel beset by zaalim samaaj, intense young love, unique tribal customs, terrible costumes, and a fuzzy timeline that ensures we’re never quite sure when all of this action is taking place.
Co-starring the always delightful Juhi Chawla and a thoroughly awkward Kalpana Iyer as a snake with tragic fashion sense, Tum Mere Ho is a classic for all the best reasons as previously outlined by Pretentious Movie Reviews.

Spectre Review Upodcast

Bond is back business with the hotly anticipated SPECTRE, the latest in a long line of blockbusters in 2015.  Upodcasting casts its critical eye over the ghostly goings on of Daniel Craig, acting outside the control of British Secret Service for the first time since Timmy Dalton’s License to Kill way back when in 1989.

Sam Mendes and Daniel Craig reunite for the 4th instalment of the recent canon but have set themselves such a tough task to follow given the awesomeness of Skyfall.  Roles are recast and characters grow, but are we necessarily looking backwards or forwards in James Bond time-zone?  The various nods to Bonds gone-by lend a different feel to SPECTRE but do not detract from what is a fantastic film.  Naturally, at Upod, we don’t really agree on anything, so there is at least one dissenting voice in this podcast.

So, Daniel, if this really is your last outing as Britain’s most famous spy (that is terrible for undercover work of course), we salute you.  Bond has come a long way since Casino Royale (the noughties one) and in a short space of time and for that we thank you.  Perhaps the next most pressing question should indeed be, if it’s not be Daniel Craig next time, then who?

Atif Aslam and Sonu Niigaam in concert in London’s O2

Two of the most amazing singers in South East Asia are coming to London in concert. I think both of them don’t really need any introduction so I’ll leave you guys with the most pertinent info from the following press release.

 

Dhamaka 2012 – Sonu Niigaam, Atif Aslam & Bolly Flex – Live at The O2!

Flex FX proudly brings you the aptly named show, Dhamaka 2012 at the world’s most popular venue ‘The O2’ on Sunday 22nd April 2012. Dhamaka means “explosion” and the show promises to be just that.

Creating musical history, are 2 of the world’s most sought after Asian voices – India’s soul, Sonu Nigam and Pakistan’s icon, Atif Aslam, together for the first time in history.

The venue is the world famous O2 arena, in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, which is part of London’s Olympics in 2012, and is known as the centre of the earth. No better a place to celebrate the unity that music can bring.

Both international singing sensations will be performing live with their own full bands for 90 minutes. Each with perform all their Bollywood blockbusters, latest chart toppers, and their everlasting renowned hits. Also on the cards, is special tribute from both acts!

The spectacular dance group Bolly Flex, who UK viewers cheered on in the popular SKY TV show, ‘Got to dance’ in 2011, will perform a grand opening to both halves of the show and introduce the star celebrities in a dynamic and artistic fashion. Guaranteed, are breathtaking, colourful and high energy performances.

Young East London born and raised producer and artistic director Naz Choudhury shares: “Dhamaka has always played a major role to my journey and the Flex FX legacy, over the past few years. I can proudly say I have my dream line-up in Sonu and Atif. After my appearance on the BBC show, Dragons’ Den, I nationally declared that I will do it and though the dragons didn’t come on board, I had investors who immediately took the opportunity, and have waited for this big event to come together.”

He adds: “Dhamaka doesn’t represent race, faith or culture, it’s about the passion for music, dance and unity. I’m proud to say it’s about time a show of this calibre has come to my home town, the East End of London, and only for one night. Tickets are already selling like hot cakes, so I buying early will mean no disappointments.”

Flex FX was founded in 2003 by Naz Choudhury as a dance group, and their first performance and launch was in the Millennium Dome, at the Festival of Asia in 2004. In 2007 Flex FX was commissioned by the European Union and produced Dhamaka 2007 with Atif Aslam and Jay Sean, alongside a UK cast of dancers and sold out the 5000 capacity Royal Albert Hall. Flex FX became a force to be reckoned with.

2012 sees Flex FX return to the Dome, which is now the world famous O2, a full circle back to where the journey began, in the 15,000 capacity O2 Arena. They proudly bring you the biggest Bollywood event of 2012.

Dhamaka makes history not just because of the line-up, but also the multicultural unity and power of bringing nations together in celebration, embracing London’s Olympic year in world class fashion. It’s back… It’s Dhamaka – an explosion to your senses!

Tickets start at just £25! Book your tickets now visit www.theO2.co.uk. For more information about the show visit www.dhamaka.co.uk
