Many Happy Returns Sandesh

Talented actor Sandesh Gour, known for his roles in Saraswati Chandra, Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi and other serials, debuted with his first Bollywood offering Meeradha last Friday. And today is another Friday with one more reason to celebrate - It’s his birthday today.

Having donned the hat for many interesting roles in various Indian television shows like Mann Kee Awaaz Pratigya, Surya The Super Cop, Savdhaan India, Super Cops vs Super Villains, Sanjeev Kapoor Ke Kitchen Khiladi, Mahisagar, CID and Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, he is all set to do another Bollywood project this year. To go on floors immediately after Ganesh Chaturthi, Sandesh is tight lipped about the project. He just mentioned that it’s a thriller film and is very interesting. The film has a message for the youth and revolves around the issues faced by youths today.

Sandesh also did a couple of short films under the tutelage and direction of Mohan Das with whom he did Pragaash and later Maufinaama which went on to receive many awards at various International Film Festivals. Though “Meeradha” had an average run, but being jovial and extrovert by nature, Sandesh says, “Life and career in this industry comes with all its ups and downs. But what is important is to rise above everything and keep on moving.” All set to explore varied roles and leave a mark with his acting histrionics, he says he is indebted to producer Surya Prakash Jethlia for having given him a break in Bollywood, “for which I will be forever indebted.”

As the young lad gears up for his next venture, we wish him all the very best and success in his ventures, and of course Many Happy Returns!!!

Stephen Lang leads the way in showing how far one can go to get into the skin of the character!

Acting is not just about feeling the character, but also getting into its skin, bringing a sense of realism and horror that audiences can identify with. Ace actor, Stephen Lang, goes an extra mile to add authenticity and nail the character of a blind man in his upcoming horror thriller, ‘Don't Breathe’.

He essays the role of a former member of the US military who loses his eyesight to shrapnel. To get the character as close as possible to reality, Lang wore special contact lenses that not only made his eyes look clouded over, but also prevented him from actually being able to see clearly.
“The nature of his blindness is war wound; it’s shrapnel that shredded the eye. So it’s not just being born blind. It’s not a normal eye. They’ve been ripped up a bit. As fine an actor as I am … I can’t do that. So you create the lens. But I think we conferred about it and they did a very smart, canny job of it. It’s not that sort of zombie-like or white horror lens that you’ll see. They’re lenses that you can see the eye has been sort of messed up, but not jarringly.” says Stephen.

When asked Lang about how much he could see, he said that ​“cuts it down to just shadows.” Only an actor of Lang's caliber could carry this experiment of depicting realism and horror with such √©lan and ease.

Don’t Breathe is releasing September 2nd in cinemas near you.. Go watch out…

Amitabh Bachchan's dubs for free

The senior actor is known for his humility as much as his professionalism. Amitabh  Bachchan had recently made a friendly gesture for an upcoming director. Ajit Sinha, who's been an associate director on films like Vansh, Khiladi, Baazigar, Ishq, Mann, Rishtey etc. and a dialogue director on the ad film of Kalyan Jewellers and also knows the actor very well, has worked on his first project. The filmmaker is making his directorial debut with Wah Taj which is on a subject concerning social issues. So when the director approached the actor for a voice over in the film, he immediately agreed to lend his voice, which has a crucial subtext in the movie. And, in fact, he even refused to charge any fees for the same.

Director Ajit Sinha says 'When it comes to lending support Mr. Bachchan wouldn't shy away. It’s an association of past 15 years and what better blessings then to have his voice over in my directorial debut film Wah taj. I couldn't have asked for anything more. I feel really blessed.'

Meeradha - A beautiful love saga

Meeradha is a contemporary love saga of Krishna, Radha and Meera. With a love triangle in the first half, the story as usual shows Radha as Krishna’s first love while Meera is the modern age feminist sage whose life chronicles intense devotion to Krishna. However, the story takes a sudden but surprising turn after interval and an emotional but gripping content towards the end adds to the beauty of the film. Yes, in this modern love saga, Radha on her death bed asks Krishna to accept Meera after her. This is where the film takes a bow as Meera for the first time gets equal status as Radha who sacrifices her life and her own wishes in the service of Krishna.

Due credit can be given to the story writer (S P Jethlia who is also the Producer) for writing a story that is a bit hatke. For the first time, someone has added a new angle to the Krishna, Radha and Meera love story. Yes, instead of just being a Krishna ki deewani, Meera becomes his new bride and Krishna’s life. 

The fresher’s have done a good job especially Sandesh Gour as Krishna who looks handsome, but not a stud. Suhani Jethlia as Radha looks beautiful as always but it’s Venus Jain as Meera who with her dreamy eyes will take your heart away. The Villain’s son Laksh played by Anuj Pareek has the looks and could have done a better job as an actor as he had the opportunity to steal the show right under. On the contrary, K Venkatesh was a total waste with actually nothing to do. The director could have done a wonderful job with him but failed. The music is pleasant to the ears and although the story is quite predictable, but on the whole, Meeradha is worth watching due to its gripping tale, positive message and the fresh talents.

Arjun Kanungo's Sirikkadhey from Remo is what love songs are made of!

Heart throb Arjun Kanungo’s Tamil debut, with the talented music director, composer and singer Anirudh Ravichander, is more than what an artist could ask for. The song Sirikkadhey from the much awaited Tamil film REMO, has Arjun mellifluous sing along with debutant female singer Srinidhi and is picturised on the lead pair of the film- Sivakarthikeyan and Keerthy Suresh.

Charting a successful journey in Bollywood and sensational popularity with singles such as Baaki Baatein Peene Baad and Fursat, Arjun Kanungo steps into the South terrain with his first Tamil song.

“Remo” which is touted to be superstar Sivakarthikeyan’s highest budget movie till date, is directed by debutante director Bakkiyaraj Kannan. The actor is pairing up with Keerthy Suresh and will captivate the audience with their sizzling chemistry. If you haven't watched it yet, watch it here...
