Rahul Dholakia’s next with Ravi Chopra

After Lamhaa and the almost-completed social satire Society Rahul Dholakia is all set to direct a film for Ravi Chopra, again based on a ‘burning’ issue.

But this time the issue that Dhalokia who made films on the Gujarat communal riots (Parzania) and Kashmir, is not political. It’s about the loopholes in the legal system.

Jimmy Shergill Outsmarts Sanjay Dutt at the Box Office

Believe it or not but a couple of upcoming actors along with Jimmy Shergill, have crushed Sanjay Dutt’s Lamhaa at the box office. Along with star studded Lamhaa, three small films – Tere Bin Laden, Udaan and Mel Karade Rabba (in Punjabi) clashed with each other at the box office. However, the unthinkable happened with each of the three films succeeding at the box office (in varied degree, of course) with an exception of Lamhaa that got totally whitewashed.

“I Have Matured With Time And Become More Responsible As An Actress”: Bipasha Basu

Bipasha Basu tells Jyothi Venkatesh that she is happy that her performance in Lamhaa has not gone unnoticed.

What message did Rahul drive home through Lamhaa?

The message that Rahul Dholakia tried to drive home through the film was that you cannot really grow up in a land which is surrounded by guns, with a feeling of insecurity at the back of your mind. It is just recently after the elections that life has returned to a semblance of normalcy in the valley. The stalemate that is there in Kashmir makes you wake up from your slumber and prod you not to take anything for granted and fight your way till you are able to get the right solution to your problems.

Four Reasons why ‘Lamhaa’ didn’t take off with a roaring start

Release of multiple films on a single Friday is never a good idea. However, the makers of ‘Lamhaa’ can’t be blamed if they thought of last Friday as the best possible weekend for the release. After all when the date was decided a few weeks back, films like ‘Tere Bin Laden’ and ‘Udaan’ hardly seemed to be any competition. Also, the Hollywood release ‘Inception’ wouldn’t have been considered as a challenge by any means.

Lamhaa: Definitely deserves a watch

lamhaa

Rating: 3.5 out of 5*

Starring: Sanjay Dutt, Bipasha Basu, Kunal Kapoor and Anupam Kher

There are Kashmiris Who want Freedom from India or Pakistan says Bipasha Basu

Two years in the making, Bipasha Basu’s Lamhaa is finally up for release today. Though narrated as a thriller, at the core of it, the film carries an issue-based subject. Considering the fact that Kurbaan, which released last year, too was an issue-based film (despite the thriller treatment) and still didn’t work at the box office, isn’t Bipasha worried about the fate of Lamhaa?
