Anushka & Varun’s Simplicity Weave Together An Endearing ‘Sui Dhaaga’ On Screen

Sui Dhaaga is an upcoming Indian Hindi-language comedy-drama film directed by Sharat Katariya and produced by Maneesh Sharma under the banner of Yash Raj Films. It stars Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan in lead roles.

The project was announced in July 2017. After initial talks with Ranbir Kapoor, Dhawan was approached for the lead role, with Anushka Sharma playing the female lead. The duo posted riddles related to the theme of the film on their social media handles and confirmed it soon after that.

According to sources, the film was based on the Make In India campaign launched by the Indian Government in 2014, which was aimed at promoting the country’s indigenous textile industries. Maneesh Sharma called it “,  a heartwarming story of pride and self-reliance.” He further added, “This story finds its roots in the heart of India and reflects the passion that runs through the veins of every single Indian.” And now, the much-awaited trailer of Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan’s Sui Dhaaga is finally out. Let’s not forget, this is the first time Anushka and Varun have come together for a film.

Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan’s Sui DhaagaMade In India trailer has just hit the web and we must say, it’s beautiful in so many different ways. The simplicity with which Anushka and Varun weave magic together is so endearing. For those of you who don’t know what the film is about, Sui Dhaaga Made In India basically celebrates entrepreneurship. It’s how you make impossible, possible and achieve your dreams despite all odds.

It’s the first time Anushka and Varun have come together for a film; that too an unconventional film like Sui Dhaaga which doesn’t see both of them at their glamorous best.

Bhaagamathie’ first look: Anushka Shetty’s avatar will give you goosebumps

Anushka Shetty is back in action with a bang and the trailer of her upcoming multilingual film, Bhaagamathie, proves it. The fast-paced 2-minute video spotlights Anushka’s acting chops. It starts off with softly lighted scenes that has Anushka playing the do-gooder in a village, who goes on to falls in love with Unni Mukundan’s character. Just as we are lulled by the romance, the pace picks up and only chaos is left in its wake.

We see Anushka behind bars, we see her tortured and we see paranormal activity at the mansion where she is held captive. It looks like the mansion is haunted and this is where Bhaagamathie is unleashed. After the terrifying first look and teaser, the trailer has only heightened the curiosity and makes us wonder, is this really a horror movie?

However, one minor irritant is how Bhaagamathie’s look is almost identical to the one we have already seen in Anushka’s previous films like Arundhati. Somehow, when we see Bhaagamathie on screen, it takes us back to her previous roles that she excelled in.

The film bankrolled by UV Creations is set to release on January 26 and will be Anushka Shetty’s first outing after the blockbuster Baahubali 2. It is directed by G Ashok and also stars actor Jayaram in a pivotal role.

Kaalakaandi Trailer: Saif Ali Khan Has ‘No Idea’ What He’s Doing

The trailer of Saif Ali Khan’s Kaalakaandi will indeed remind you of movies like The Hangover, Delhi Belly and some more like them. Apart from being rather trippy, the trailer also smells super duper fun, partly because of Akshat Verma, who is the screenwriter of the very popular Delhi Belly, writes and directs this too. The trailer of Kaalakaandi begins with the protagonist’s (Saif Ali Khan) doctor telling him that he’s been diagnosed with stomach cancer. Saif’s rather taken aback because like his character says in the trailer, he’s never smoked cigarettes, has stayed away from alcohol and never even spelt ‘drugs’.

The doctor’s expression reveals that Saif’s character does not have much time in hand and he should make the most of the remaining days. Instead of medicines, he’s prescribed a license to indulge in everything he’s abstained from so far. Then begins a crazy journey of rave parties, rash driving, drunk diaries.

Now we know why the very conservative Censor Board had reservations about the movie. Kaalakaandi has reportedly suggested 70 cuts earlier this year after which the film was taken to Film Certification Appellate Tribunal for certification by the makers.

The cast of Kaalakaandi also includes names like Deepak Dobriyal, Vijay Raaz, Kunaal Roy Kapur, Sobhita Dhulipala, Amyra Dastur and Akshay Oberoi, all of who have substantial screen time in the trailer. In the trailer, every now and then, Saif’s character stumbles upon one of their characters, only to find they are also involved in current happenings of his .

Fifty Shades Freed teaser dropped: Love, Marriage, Honeymoon and Kidnapping; Movie taken a dark turn

Up until now, the Fifty Shades series has been about presenting people who seem to be “good” or “bad” and making them darker/lighter. The bad boy who has a sex room reveals himself to have a kind heart, and the good girl who seems naïve and innocent is totally cool with hanging out in a sex room. In this teaser for the third instalment,

Fifty Shades Freed, things are looking much more straightforward. The girl and the guy—whose names are probably obvious to people who have seen these movies or read the books—are finally getting married, which means there’s not as much need for relationship drama and questions about the sex room. In the place of that stuff, we’re getting some gun drama and what appears to be a kidnapping attempt. Sure does make the ol’ sex room seem pretty appealing by comparison.

Fifty Shades Freed was directed by James Foley, and it will be in theatres on February 14, 2018.

Watch: Fukrey Return Teaser Is Here, And We Are Excited For Its Release Date Already

The Fukrey boys are back and their journey seems to be as entertaining as their last adventure. The teaser of Fukrey Returns starring Pulkit Samrat, Ali Fazal, Manjot Singh, Varun Sharma and Richa Chadda has now been released. The teaser has definitely heightened anticipation for the film and we cannot wait to see how the boys handle their problems this time. The film is a sequel to the 2013 hit movie Fukrey.

Similar to the first instalment of the movie, this time too, the Fukrey boys have run into trouble. Only this time Chhoocha (Varun Sharma) has acquired a different quirky ability. Rather than finding lottery codes from dreams as in the first part, in the upcoming sequel, he will have the ability to seeing future. Also, in this part, Bholi Punjaban (Richa Chadda) will be seen released from jail and add to the chaos the boys would have to deal with.

Not a lot seems to have changed when it comes to characters, which are the same as in the first instalment. Hunny (Pulkit Samrat) still seems to be the confident one, Zafar the sensible one and Lali the one who questions everyone’s attention. The movie also focuses on Choocha’s never ending quest to gain Bholi’s attention, and going by the teaser the mix-bag of characters seem to ensure that the movie will be a fun watch!

India’s first silent LGBTQ film ‘Sisak’ trailer will give you Goosebumps!

The topic of homosexuality has always been treated as a taboo in India. People have been subjugated with so many judgments that it’s difficult to combat such prejudices and evolve. Due to this societal pressure, people haven’t been able to accept themselves for what they actually are.

However, in the recent times, there has been a positive change in the society and gradually, people are embracing their individualities and encouraging others to do the same.

This change has also been reflected in Bollywood, thanks to Fawad Khan stepping up to play a gay role in the movie ‘Kapoor and Sons’, John-Abhishek playing the gay duo in the film Dostana.

There have been many LGBTQ parades to show solidarity to the homosexuals.

The short film, ‘Sisak’ is the first LGBTQ short feature film in India. It’s written and directed by Faraz Arif Ansari.

Nawazuddhin Siddiqui’s ‘Haramkhor’ trailer is here and it looks damn interesting.

Love triangles have been one of Bollywood’s most popularly-used concepts. But what sets Haraamkhor apart is that it features a love triangle with a massive twist!

Starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Shweta Tripathi in the lead, the film is about a married professor who falls in love with his student, only to realize that he is competing with another student in trying to woo her.

Set in a small village in Madhya Pradesh, the dynamics between the three leads change as the emotion of love deepens. The film was shot in just 16 days, which is a record of sorts in Bollywood. But it was stalled because of an FIR filed against the director by the Maharashtra’s Textbook Bureau.

However, with everything sorted out, the film is set to hit theatres next month!

From the makers of Gangs of Wasseypur and The Lunchbox, Haraamkhor looks like another small-budget film waiting to amaze us with its simplicity and rawness.
