Golden Cross ended a few weeks ago and though Ekun and I are caught in the crosssfires of Joseon Gunman, there’s no way we wouldn’t make time to give our final thoughts on one of the most unhinged villains of 2014.
Jung Bo-suk‘s turn as Seo Dong-ha brought new meaning to the word deranged in my mind, for Seo-Jo (a combination of Jung’s character surnames from Giant and Golden Cross) was a different kind of crazy, hinging somewhere between nefarious and nutty but above all, resolute in his delusion of innocence.

As promised, UTV premiered the trailer of Vishal Bharadwaj‘s latest Shakespearean feat Haider on Wednesday July 9th, along with its main cast in attendance, including the director, his wife and the fantastic Kay Kay Menon (Life in a Metro, Sarkar), who also appears in the film in a nefarious role, at PVR Cinemas in Mumbai.

On Wednesday, stars Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor will follow Parineeti and Aditya‘s July 7th lead and “take over YouTube” with an all-day exclusive look at the official trailer along with opportunity to interact with the team that made this movie happen.

For it seems they flip flop yearly releases and since Singh is Bling, from Kumar’s camp won’t hit theaters until this time next year, the field is open for Devgn’s next Singham film. Continue reading
Until a month ago, the filmspere had been pretty dry for me. Nothing had caught my attention and to be honest, I was beginning to get fairly bummed about it. But just when I thought there weren’t any interesting films on the slate, two films drop into my lap and they both star rising star Aditya Roy Kapur (Guzaarish, Aashiqui 2). Continue reading
