Sara Ali Khan kickstarts 2021 with ‘hugs and cuddles’ with brother Ibrahim and friends. See photos


Sara Ali Khan started the new year on a happy note with her loved ones. She shared happy pictures with her squad, including younger brother Ibrahim Ali Khan, and hoped that the rest of the year goes as well.

In her Instagram post, Sara wrote, “Sun Sun Sunshine. Hugs and cuddles since they’re all mine. Jokes and pranks continue as we dine. If this is how 2021 is gonna be – it’s a good sign.”

 

Earlier, Sara had shared photos from her New Year celebration with Ibrahim, in which they were seen posing in front of a bonfire. She also shared a heartfelt note on how he is her strength and pillar of support. “Happy New Years. With my brother it’s always the best cheers. He takes away all my fears. And forever is there to wipe all my tears,” she wrote.

 

Sara took off to an undisclosed location to ring in the New Year with her loved ones after shooting for Aanand L Rai’s Atrangi Re with Akshay Kumar and Dhanush. She was most recently seen in David Dhawan’s Coolie No 1 alongside Varun Dhawan.

Coolie No 1, a remake of the 1995 film of the same name, marked Sara’s digital debut. The film was unanimously panned by critics, with the Hindustan Times review calling it a ‘limp spoof of the original’.

Like Sara, Ibrahim also wants to enter the film industry. Recently, in an interview, she said that her only advice to him would be to be ‘an all-rounded human being’.

“I don’t think meri aukat aayi hai abhi tak, ke main kisiko tips du, lekin main itna zarur bolungi ke life main alag alag cheezo ka anubhav karna bohot zaruri hai. Chahe woh education, chahe woh traveling ho, chahe woh baatein karna ho ya logo ko observe karna ho (I don’t think I have the calibre to dole out advice to him yet, but I will say that he should experience a number of things, be it education, travel, talking to people or observing them), that is very, very important. So that’s something I would advise him to do and the rest, he has his mother and father and a lot of other people to tell him what to do,” she told The Times of India.

Anil Kapoor thanks Nawazuddin Siddiqui for praising AK Vs AK, reminds him ‘I’m sure you noticed you were a part of it too’


Anil Kapoor has thanked Nawazuddin Siddiqui for appreciating his new film, AK Vs AK. Anil also reminded Nawazuddin of his cameo in the Vikramaditya Motwane film.

Nawazuddin took to Twitter on December 30 to share his review of AK Vs AK. He wrote, “Watched #AKvsAK. Top notch performance by @anuragkashyap72 & @AnilKapoor aka The AKs. A very unique & interesting experiment by @VikramMotwane which was perfectly paced & amazingly executed. Do watch it guys only on @NetflixIndia @netflix.”

Reacting to the tweet on Saturday, Anil wrote, “Thank you so much @Nawazuddin_S !! And I’m sure you noticed you were a part of it too!!”

  

AK Vs AK stars Anil and filmmaker Anurag Kashyap as exaggerated versions of themselves. Nawazuddin doesn’t appear on screen but is heard on the phone as he plays himself. He is heard talking to a furious Anurag on the phone, rejecting his film. Anurag screams at him, “How dare you refuse my offer? I’m the one who made your career with Gangs Of Wasseypur.” The Sacred Games actor calmly replies that he is not happy with the fee offered to him for the project and disconnects the phone.

AK vs AK, which is streaming on Netflix, stars Anurag as a brash film director who kidnaps popular movie star Anil’s daughter Sonam Kapoor and films his search for her in real-time to present it as his next blockbuster. The director and actor constantly mock and criticise each other throughout the movie. They had also had a fake showdown when they presented the film’s trailer at a press conference last month.

The Hindustan Times review of the film read, “AK vs AK must’ve sounded like a home-run on paper, but it isn’t as tightly constructed as it could’ve been and the twists are somewhat telegraphed. For all its ingenuity, it can’t help but feel like B-material — a dusty old idea spruced up for the streaming age.”

Anil Kapoor reveals wife Sunita was ‘supposed to do’ AK vs AK, but backed out: ‘She’s the only one we were all scared of’


Nearly all of Anil Kapoor’s immediate family is in the film AK vs AK, but conspicuous by her absence is his wife, Sunita. In the film, Anil and filmmaker Anurag Kashyap play exaggerated versions of their public personas, with cameo appearances by everyone from Anil’s kids — Harsh Varrdhan and Sonam Kapoor — and his brother, producer Boney Kapoor.

In an interview, the actor said that Sunita was included in an earlier draft of the script, but decided to opt out of the project to honour a decision that she had made a long time ago.

 

He told Scroll, “Initially, Sunita was supposed to do it. The character had to be someone who calls the shots in the house. But she doesn’t want to talk to the press from the very first day, she has made her own decisions, she said I cannot be part of this journey.”

Previously, in an interview to Film Companion, Anurag joked that while nothing was out of bounds as far as personal attacks against each other go, the only place they weren’t allowed to enter was ‘Sunita’s bedroom’. He said that they even tried to get her to agree to a voice cameo, like the one Nawazuddin Siddiqui makes in the film, but she refused to do it.

Anil said, “Sunita was the only one we were all scared of, that’s it.” He said that she has been a part of the industry for many years, but she took a decision that ‘she doesn’t want to be a known face.’ Director Vikramaditya Motwane said that at one point they tried breaching the subject of appearing in the film with her. “We were in your home one day, still discussing, she’d said no already, and you put me in front and said ‘babe, Vikram wants to ask you something’.” He said that before he could complete his sentence, she gave him a look and that was the end of that.

From Thappad to The Trial of the Chicago 7, the top 10 films of 2020


What a strange year 2020 has been. Compiling a ‘best-of’ list feels oddly perfunctory and even somewhat pointless this year. But ironically, the movies have never felt this vital.

For starters, the manner in which we consume films changed drastically in 2020, and in many ways, this was the year of least objectivity – movies that normally wouldn’t have made an impact became unforgettable because, perhaps, the end of the world seemed like such a real possibility. Who knows? It still could be.

Also read: From Paatal Lok to The Queen’s Gambit, the top 10 TV shows of 2020

You must keep in mind that I watched every film mentioned on this list alone, at home – not a single one of these was experienced in a movie theatre. This is a first, and as expected, it completely overhauled how I perceive movies. Another disclaimer before we begin: this shouldn’t be considered a list of the year’s ‘best films’, but rather, a very personal list of movies that spoke to one person. Me.

Here’s the list, in no particular order.

Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions

In a year when people have moaned about missing the movie theatre experience, here’s a film that positively demands to be seen alone. Folkore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions (stylized in lower-case) isn’t the most refined film in the world – the crew is visible in reflections sometimes, and the camerawork has very little personality – but it’s among the most moving portrayals of the artistic process you’ll ever see. Part therapy session, part cottagecore catalogue, Folklore, directed by Taylor Swift, is a peek inside the heartbreak and honesty that influences her music. It’s a soothing balm for the trauma of 2020.

Serious Men

Hindustantimes

The year’s best Hindi film, Serious Men, directed by Sudhir Mishra and starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui as an enraged Dalit con artist, is one of those rare experiences where it seems as if every department — costumes, sound, lighting — is in a jazz-like groove. And as perversely funny as it is, it would not have worked if there had not been a collective rage directed at the establishment. It’s a movie that taps into what it is like to live in India, circa 2020. It’s a time capsule that, like so many satirical movies that were released in the post-Emergency era, captures the mood of the nation.

Read the Serious Men review here.

Moothon

Hindustantimes

Epic yet intimate, gritty yet mythic, Moothon is the best Indian film of the year – an experience on par with the Oscar-winning Moonlight, with which it shares many thematic similarities. Directed by Geetu Mohandas and starring Nivin Pauly and Roshan Mathew in roles of a lifetime, Moothon is a glowing example of the second Golden Age of Malayalam movies, beyond doubt the most important movement Indian cinema has witnessed since Ram Gopal Varma changed the game around two decades ago in Bollywood.

Read the Moothon review here.

Thappad

Hindustantimes

In an industry that routinely finds it difficult to make tonally consistent movies, director Anubhav Sinha’s sombre drama, Thappad, is a culmination of his creative reawakening which began with Mulk, and continued with Article 15. Thappad, about a woman’s (internal and external) fight against an act of domestic violence, is a patient film that values silences over soliloquys. It is understated and unconventional, and features a towering central performance that cements star Taapsee Pannu as a once-in-a-generation kind of talent.

Spontaneous

Hindustantimes

Rare is the teen movie that can delight and devastate equally. Spontaneous, the directorial debut of screenwriter Brian Duffield, is one of them. When their classmates begin spontaneously exploding in the most gory manner, two high-schoolers, realizing that they could very well be the next to die, decide to live every day like it’s their last. Spontaneous is a vibrant mash-up of tones and textures – in one moment it can make you swoon at the sight of young love, and in the next, it can make you retch with its pointed commentary on school shootings. Seek it out, spread the word.

The Trial of the Chicago 7

Hindustantimes

Frighteningly relevant, featuring terrific performances and dialogue that you can dance to, Aaron Sorkin’s The Trial of the Chicago 7 is relevant not only to Americans fighting systemic injustice, but Indians as well. It’s a crowd-pleaser of the highest quality — propulsive, impassioned and well-intentioned – and together with another Sacha Baron Cohen vehicle, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, served as the final artistic blow to the outgoing Donald Trump.

Read the Trial of the Chicago 7 review here.

Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom

Hindustantimes

Based on the August Wilson play of the same name and directed by George C Wolfe, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom is many things. It’s about Black people, still emerging from the shadow of their recent past, learning to live respectable lives. It’s about the power of art, and the importance of upholding one’s creative integrity. And it is also about the oppression of an entire community, and the system that sets them up for nothing but self-destruction. Framed within the tragedy of Chadwick Boseman’s death, it takes on a wholly unexpected profundity. It’s the film that’ll win him an Oscar.

Read the Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom review here.

Boys State

Hindustantimes

This stunning Apple TV+ documentary is both an indictment and celebration of human nature. Co-directed by Jesse Moss and Amanda McBain, the film may sound goofy on paper. It’s about a bunch of Texas high-schoolers who congregate at a summer camp, where they’re divided into two groups and as a social experiment, tasked with devising political campaigns – complete with elected representatives for all the senior positions. What follows is a deeply engrossing tale of mass corruption and cynicism, but also hope and idealism. It’s a microcosm of the world right now, and absolutely essential viewing.

Palm Springs

Hindustantimes

Like Spontaneous, Palm Springs, directed by Max Barbakow and written by Andy Siara, takes a familiar premise and puts a never-before-seen spin on it. On paper, it’s another time loop movie, featuring an unremarkable schmuck played by Andy Samberg, who’s been living the same day over and over again. And being stuck in this existential prison has made him unfeeling and nihilistic. But it all changes when a woman enters the picture, and together, they realise that life is only worth living when you have someone by your side. It’s corny, yes, like any random top-shelf rom-com, but it’s also profound, which is saying something in a year that gave us a new Charlie Kaufman movie.

Da 5 Bloods

Hindustantimes

Da 5 Bloods is director Spike Lee’s retort to decades of Hollywood storytelling from a white perspective. Lee is snatching the narrative away from the powerful white men in charge of shaping it, and rewriting it — methodically, patiently, and furiously. Da 5 Bloods couldn’t have been more timely, with its quick postscript that honours the Black Lives Matter movement, and the overwhelming sense of pride that it exudes. Together with Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, it is an essential part of this year’s cultural conversation surrounding Black storytelling, and a moving tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman.

Read the Da 5 Bloods review here.

A few honourable mentions now. These films could’ve very easily found a spot on the top 10 list on another day, which should be an indication of just how arbitrary and ever-evolving lists such as this usually are. Mank, by David Fincher, offers a glimpse of the filmmaker’s love-hate relationship with his line of work; I’m Thinking of Ending Things finds filmmaker Charlie Kaufman at his most inscrutable yet engaging; Kappela, the second film on this list featuring Roshan Mathew, is another example of the sheer inventiveness of Malayalam cinema; Extraction is the best action movie of the year; and finally, Gulabo Sitabo, a film that dares to strip two of the nation’s biggest male actors of their carefully cultivated image.

Coolie No 1 actor Shikha Talsania defends film against negative reviews, says viewers can choose what they want to watch


Coolie No 1 actor Shikha Talsania has defended the film against negative reactions targeting its dated humour and offensive tone. The film, directed by David Dhawan and starring Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan in lead roles, was released on Amazon Prime Video on Friday, to overwhelmingly negative reviews.

Shikha in an interview said that humour is subjective, and that a handful of negative reactions doesn’t offer a full picture.

She told Mid-Day, “Entertainment can be different for different people. A certain kind of humour works for me, while another doesn’t. But, I can choose to watch what I enjoy.” Shikha’s father, Tiku Talsania, appeared in the original Coolie No 1, which starred Govinda and Karisma Kapoor in lead roles.

Previously, Sara was asked in an interview about the ‘problematic’ aspects of the original film, in which Govinda’s character cons Karisma’s character into falling for him — which is replicated in the remake as well. She said that if one views everything through a politically correct lens, ‘any scope of humour in our lives will be lost’.

She told Mid-Day in an interview, “I’d urge people to watch the film with the honest intention with which it is told. There is a difference between what you say on Twitter, and what an entertaining comedy tries to say. If everybody [expects] everything to be politically correct, any scope of humour in our lives will be [lost]. Of course, you can’t be demeaning. Govinda sir duping Karisma to make her believe that he is not a coolie, is funny. It’s not about him cheating. Ultimately, he falls in love with her, and that’s what most of us look forward to in life.”

The new Coolie No 1 currently has a 1.4 rating on IMDb, but Amazon claims it registered the streamer’s biggest opening of the year. No concrete numbers were revealed. The Hindustan Times review called it a ‘limp spoof’ and a ‘rehash’ of the original.

Coolie No 1 movie review: Varun Dhawan, Sara Ali Khan’s film is limp spoof of the original


Coolie No 1
Cast:
Varun Dhawan, Sara Ali Khan, Paresh Rawal
Director:
David Dhawan

David Dhawan at his peak is a hard act to follow. The master of madcap cinema, whose favourite playing field remained farce and the ridiculous, Dhawan had the uncanny ability to make every scene a rib tickler. With generous help from Kader Khan’s laugh-a-minute dialogues and the nimble-footed Govinda’s spot-on comic timings, you were never given a chance to examine the script – there wasn’t any – or the lack of coherence. We were in for the ride, and the breathless spontaneity carried you along. It is that spontaneity you miss desperately in Coolie No 1, Dhawan’s rehash of his hit from quarter of a century ago. And the original was never a perfect product in the first place but it was always light on its feet.

Watch Coolie No 1 trailer 

The director’s son, actor Varun Dhawan, is the one answering to the call of ‘Aaaeee Coolie’ this time round. Senior Dhawan doesn’t change the story, offers no surprises for those of us who went to a single-screen theatre to catch the original. Instead, he gives his scenery a lick of paint, adds a flashy wardrobe and voila, a 1995 hit is ready for an all-new audience.

Kader Khan’s Seth Hoshiyarchand is now Goa hotelier Jeffery Rozario (Paresh Rawal) whose only dream is to find a stinking rich husband for his daughter Sarah (Sara Ali Khan). For some reason, he is made to talk in rhyme, with the first line being ‘Heaven on the Docks man’. It grates on your ear the first time he says it and never gets better.

Rozario, in his search for the richest man in the country for his daughter, insults the matchmaker Jai Kishen (Jaaved Jaffrey, a 2020 version of Sadashiv Amrapurkar’s Shadiram Gharjode) who promises to avenge the insult. He brings in a railway porter Raju (Varun Dhawan) to play the rich suitor Kunwar Raj Pratap Singh. Blinded by the promise of immense wealth, Rozario gets Raju married to his daughter, but soon realises everything is not what it seems. In order to throw him off the scent, Raju cooks up the story of having a twin, adding more confusion to an already overflowing plot.

Coolie No 1 has a few moments, owing largely to Varun Dhawan’s enthusiasm and spontaneity. As the ruffian Raju, he gets to channel his love for broad, physical comedy as he apes Mithun Chakraborty, complete with the pelvic thrusts. It is as the straitlaced Raj that you wish that he had dialled down on all the mimicry of the veteran actors. He is surrounded by familiar faces; besides Paresh Rawal and Javed, Johnny Lever, Rajpal Yadav and Sahil Vaid show up too. The women, like most David films, have little to do besides show up for songs and act supportive. Sara Ali Khan is adequate when duty calls.

Hindustantimes

Although suspension of disbelief is a part of watching a David Dhawan film, Coolie No 1’s plot is hopelessly out of sync with today’s time. Men get hit in gonads and women are the victims of casual sexism. Speech impairment is mined for laughs, as is people’s weight. Even coronavirus is not spared as it is used in a rather tasteless, and unfunny, joke.

Then there are the crater-sized plot holes. While everyone carries smartphones and takes selfies, no one bothers to google this desi Richie Rich before vows are taken and weddings organised. You squirm in your seat as the greedy father throws his daughters at the rich suitor, forgetting that we are living in a different century from when this was originally written. Things reach a point too often in Coolie No 1 when such inanity is too much to swallow, especially when no chuckles follow.

The VFX sequences in the film can be a primer on how not to use CGI. They are of such poor quality that you can actually make out where green screen was used.

David Dhawan has proved beyond doubt that it is impossible to templatise David Dhawan. With the sharp writing and editing missing, Coolie No 1 is but a poor facsimile of the original. As the jokes land with a thud, we are left just with the songs and even there, the OGs clearly win. For those who ask you not to compare the 1995 hit with the 2020 product, my one-line answer is that the makers should not have given us a copy in the first place. This is not a reboot, it feels like a spoof and it is best not to tamper with nostalgia.

Kaagaz trailer: Pankaj Tripathi is a dead man walking in Satish Kaushik’s film about a man’s fight against a piece of paper. Watch


Actor Pankaj Tripathi, the internet’s favourite dad, is the lead star of Satish Kaushik’s latest film, Kaagaz. The film tells the story of one Bharat Lal, who has been marked as ‘dead’ in the official government papers and is waging a war for reclaiming his identity.

Bharat, played by Pankaj, is desperate to be proven alive. He has a family, hopes and dreams for his future but his official dead status is not letting him realise any of it. He tries all he can to claim what is rightfully his. He asks the village sarpanch to sign the required documents, files a case in court and even renames himself as Bharat Lal Mritak (deceased) to get the country and the media’s attention. He even forms an alliance with all those who have been wrongly termed dead due to silly clerical errors.

 

Satish also plays an acting role in the film as Bharat’s lawyer. While the latter places a lot of trust in him, he may just not be as smart as he is pretending to be.

Talking about the film, Pankaj shared, “Kaagaz is a brilliantly written true story. It is quirky, black comedy and depicts common man’s humorous journey on identity crisis. My character will be quite different from some of my recent ventures and I am excited to be a part of such an inspiring story. This story needs to be heard and I am definite that ZEE5 will give it the reach that it deserves.”

Satish Kaushik said, “I remember reading about the story of Lal Bihari Mritak in the newspaper for the first time, I was intrigued and inspired with his journey , so I did a lot of research on the events that took place in his life Eventually, it felt to me like this story deserved to be told to the world and we could have not asked for a better production partner Salman Khan Films & than ZEE5 to showcase it. Now, it’s just a click away for the audiences. Block your date for 7th January 2021.”

The film has been produced by Salman Khan Films and will be out on Zee5 on January 7.

Ankita Lokhande perches herself on boyfriend Vicky Jain’s lap in throwback photos from Goa trip


Actor Ankita Lokhande took a trip down memory lane and fished out pictures from an epic Goa trip with her boyfriend, businessman Vicky Jain, family and friends. In one of the photos, the couple was seen at a beach shack. She wore a red floral shirt and denim shorts as she sat on his lap. He was also dressed casually in a muscle tee and shorts.

Other photos showed Ankita and Vicky chilling with family and friends, including actor Aparna Dixit. “We are family. Who all r interested to go again???? raise ur hand goaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa @aparnadixit2061 @jainvick @arpanlokhande32 @aditya.sahu.790 @a_s_h_i_t_a @sandeep.munshi @vandanaphadnislokhande @manasiayachit @sampurna.sahu,” the Instagram post was captioned.

Aparna expressed her wish to go on another trip with all of them. “Me me me. Lets go goa! What an amazing trip (just not the jelly fish and injuries),” she commented.

 

Last week, Ankita celebrated her 36th birthday with Vicky and a few friends, including actor Rashami Desai and producer Sandip Ssingh. She faced a lot of backlash from late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s fans for partying.

Though Ankita did not directly comment on the trolling, she seemed to give a reply to her haters with a cryptic quote shared on Instagram stories. “Me and my heart, we have got issues that we battle with, but one thing that will never live inside of us is hate. When you have thoughts of hatred inside of you, that is the ugliness from the soul that creates and controls all of your issues,” the quote read.

She also shared another quote, which read, “I am a stable being. If people say negative about me… I know it’s just their opinion… created based on their sanskaars… or based on their mood today. Their opinion reflects their reality, not mine. I remain stable as I know who I am.”

Anil Kapoor says he risked his ‘entire career, image’ with AK vs AK, co-star Anurag Kashyap calls it ‘real courage’


Actor Anil Kapoor has said that he risked his career with AK vs AK, and he would never have agreed to do the film had Vikramaditya Motwane not been directing it. AK vs AK is a mockumentary in which the actor plays an exaggerated version of himself, opposite director Anurag Kashyap.

“If you weren’t directing I would have never said yes,” Anil told Hindustan Times. “That’s your instinct, the choices you make. I’ve seen Vikram’s work in the past, and I knew that I’m in safe hands. So when you take these kind of chances and put your entire career at stake, and your entire image at stake, which you have built, no matter what happens, no matter how liberated (you feel), no matter how broad-minded you are…”

 

He continued, “You’re thinking ahead, you’re thinking international, you’re thinking about the youth… You need someone, (with whom) you feel secure, and you trust that person to do it correctly, that the film will be aesthetically done.”

Anurag downplayed his courage, and said that his co-star had more to lose. He said that it was more risky for ‘him especially’, because he has built ‘40 years of credibility’ in the industry. “To be so secure that you’re putting that at stake, and involving (daughter) Sonam, (son) Harsh, everyone is playing along with it… For me, that’s where the real courage is.” He said, “I don’t have much at stake, if anything, this cements my reputation.”

The film unfolds across a single night, when Anurag tells Anil that he has kidnapped his daughter, as revenge for how he was treated by the actor, and the industry. Sonam and Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor appear in cameos.

Also read: AK vs AK movie review: Anil Kapoor unleashes inner Chembur against Anurag Kashyap in inventive but inconsistent Netflix film

AK vs AK released on Netflix on December 24, on the occasion of Anil’s birthday. It marks Vikram’s second project for the streaming platform, following Sacred Games, and Anurag’s fifth. The filmmaker has worked on Sacred Games, Lust Stories, Ghost Stories and Choked.
