KAPTAAN (Punjabi) - A more blatantly inspired and much poor second clone of JOLLY LLB released in Punjabi Cinema within a gap of just six months. (Review By Bobby Sing).

SARBJIT - Hooda remains the only saving grace in this lackluster filmy take on a real life tragedy, more interested in the STAR, using a forced mixed language sounding awful at times. (Review By Bobby Sing).

DEAR DAD - A forced & unconvincing attempt made on an underdeveloped bold plot that doesn't get any kind of support from the writing department. (Review By Bobby Sing) .

AZHAR - Keeps focusing on the court case and affair instead of any finer details of the icon's contribution to cricket, resulting in a big disappointment. (Review By Bobby Sing).

This Friday's ONE LINE REVIEWS by Bobby Sing to make your weekend plans..

BTC's Excellence in Hindi Cinema Awards for 2015 (Articles on Cinema by Bobby Sing).

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR (English/Hindi) - Excelling in its action, focusing on mutual relationships, it somehow turns out to be less exciting than expected. (Review By Bobby Sing).

1920 LONDON - An interesting twist and no forced erotica remain the only two merits of this repetitive, avoidable venture. (Review By Bobby Sing).

ONE NIGHT STAND - A project that probably got made, just because the lady agreed to do it for her own reasons. (Review By Bobby Sing).

TRAFFIC - Watch its original Malayalam film to feel the real magic, giving the right kind of farewell to the director Late Rajesh Pillai. (Review By Bobby Sing).

This Friday's ONE LINE REVIEWS to make your weekend plans that should ideally be for any other place but not the movie theatres. In fact it’s like FRIDAY THE 13th did what it is widely known for with the Hindi films this week.
AZHAR - If the court case and affairs are your key subjects of interest, then you may take the risk if you must. But if cricket is what you are looking for then the film has nothing to say about the game as such and can be easily skipped
DEAR DAD - A forced & highly unconvincing attempt just made for the sake of making something different or out of the box.
BUDDHA IN A TRAFFIC JAM - 9 Chapters of left-wing, right-wing, right-wing, left-wing....... got it.... No!...... I didnt either. But would love to know who approves and funds such funny-crappy ventures.
(Reviews in Details Coming Soon)

BTC Awards 20152015 was a good year in comparison to 2014 as we did get to see many exceptional films both in terms of novel concepts and path-breaking treatment exploring few realistic subjects. But unfortunately, we again didn’t get any complete musical soundtrack that once happened to be the biggest representative feature of our Hindi cinema.
Looking at the brighter side, there were many worth applauding performances as well as directorial ventures taking along the writers in particular giving their much deserving due. However instead of honoring the creators separately through Popular and Critic Awards (as usually done by the trade to oblige all), BTC would like to give joint awards to the outstanding performers continuing with the tradition introduced.
So here are the names of BTC stars who achieved Excellence in Hindi Cinema in the year 2015 with much love and appreciation.

Best Entertaining Film for Audience
 : Bajrangi Bhaijaan
Best Path Breaking Film made on a (shockingly shameful) real life story : Gour Hari Dastaan
Best Socially Relevant Film (based on a thoughtful subject) – Take It Easy & Margarita With A Straw

Concluding Notes :
1. BAAHUBALI doesn’t feature in the list, as it’s a dubbed film.
2. No doubt, there must be a difference of opinion here as many friends would have their own choices in mind for various categories. But from my side, I honestly feel the above as the ultimate winners of the year 2015 on the basis of their exceptional talent and performances cherished in their entertaining films.

Mobile-UsersKeeping the mixed reviews and public views apart, there is no denying to the fact that almost everyone watching ‘Fan’ was in mutual agreement over the fabulous portrayal of Gaurav by Shah Rukh Khan, raising the expectations from the film in the week ahead.
However the numbers did not confirm the same and its really confusing to see the results, keeping in mind the gigantic fan following supporting such major ventures right from the first day itself so enthusiastically. Even the social networks become so lively in the days before the ‘Big Friday’, raising a valid question that is everyone vouching for the film really watching it in the theaters too buying a ticket?
Supporting the confusion, even if we consider just 35-40% of our population in the age group of 15 to 50, then the evident euphoria around the star clearly allows us to assume a bare minimum of at least 2 crore individuals among them as the ‘True Fans’, who would certainly be there at the theaters on the very first day of the film’s release or at least in the first weekend. Further considering just Rs.100 spent by these 2 crore fans on their movie tickets in the first weekend on an average (the actual amount being much higher), the number should easily go beyond the figure of 200 crores (Gross) without any big calculations as such.
However the ground reality doesn’t agree to the above, simply raising a logical doubt that is everyone active on the social networks really watching these films in the theater spending the average amount or they are mostly watching them through the Pirated DVDs and Torrents files shared on their personal computers and mobile phones at just free or a much lesser cost compared to the costly multiplexes tickets.
The fact gets a visible confirmation when one finds almost every young individual hooked on to their mobile phones with the ear-phones plugged in during their daily travels on metros, local trains and buses. And in 7 out of 10 cases, you will find them watching the latest Hindi films downloaded either through pirated DVDs or torrent files widely shared over the net (including the fans too).
So the scenario really forces you to raise a much hard hitting and scary question that, “Are there not even 2 crore fans (among the population of more than 125 crores) watching these films in the theater in reality?
Certainly something alarming, worth giving a thought!
This article was published on News18.com (earlier IBNLIVE.com) on 20th April 2016 with these two titles :
“Are Torrent Downloads and Pirated Dvds the Reason Behind the Box Office Slump of 'FAN'?”
“Do Even Real Fans Now Prefer Watching Films on Pirated DVDs and Torrents?”
