A hard-hitting song from YAADGAR on the religious temples named after their rich builders instead of the GODS worshipped. (An overview by Bobby Sing).

DAAWAT-E-ISHQ - An uneven and unconvincing plot marginally rescued by the performers and the message. (Review By Bobby Sing).

KHOOBSURAT - Thankfully its not a straight remake of the famous Hrishi Da classic and a fairly enjoyable venture too unexpectedly. (Review By Bobby Sing).

DON PEDRO - A true artist, his introspective vision and the creative orgasm he experiences after finishing off his passionate creation - An insight by Bobby Sing.

FINDING FANNY - Many would love it, a few would not but watch it for its fresh feel and performances, especially for Pankaj Kapoor & Deepika. (Review by Bobby Sing).

CREATURE - Its so boringly long with all unrequired songs and unexciting sequences that the horror becomes tiring as well as funny post interval. (Review By Bobby Sing).

MARY KOM - A pure filmy depiction of an inspiring, exceptional real life tale of a brave Indian sportswoman & a proud mother. (Review By Bobby Sing).

The story behind first FILMFARE Awards and its Trophy in 1954 (Did You Know - 81).

IDENTITY CARD - It begins realistically at a slow pace & then comes up with some extremely important questions raised on terrorism, Kashmir & STF reminding me of the dark days of Punjab. (Review By Bobby Sing).

RAJA NATWARLAL - When a con film is not able to con the viewers with its supposedly clever content then it actually fails. (Review By Bobby Sing).

One of the most famous & highly appreciated horror movie, which is sure to be found in every best films list made in any part of the world without any doubt, was actually inspired from a less than half an hour episode of a famous Television Series as reportedly accepted by its director M. Night Shyamalan himself (stated at IMDB).
THE SIXTH SENSE was one of the very few horror films to get an OSCAR nomination for the Best Picture and was also included in the 100 Greatest Movies of All Time list made in 2007 by the American Film Institute.
But interestingly, the basic idea behind this well made film was inspired from one of the episodes of famous American Tele-Series ARE YOUR AFRAID OF THE DARK? titled, THE TALE OF THE DREAM GIRL directed by David Winning, which revolves around a loving brother and sister who later disclose the secret of the ghost.
Now if Shyamalan really revealed this well guarded secret about his most famous film till date then it was indeed a truly honest & a very brave revelation made by the director himself.
(with thanks to Raj Vardhan for sharing this rare info with BTC)

Cheers!
Note : For all interested friends, at the time of writing this article the particular episode of the television series could be seen at the following link :

One of the most famous films of Quentin Tarantino, this is not just another well made crime drama to be exact. It was rated to be amongst the most violent films ever made in the year of its release and was even condemned by many for its brutal treatment. No doubt, today we get to see much more blood & cruelty on the screen than before. But at that time of the decade RESERVOIR DOGS was not a normal film at all and it was really shocking as well as painful to watch such realistic, pure and truthful depiction of crime on the screen, brilliantly portrayed by its lead actors.  
 
An all men film, relying completely upon the mutual interactions between the characters, it actually revolves around a heist gone wrong and the developments post that unexpected failure. Six criminals, not knowing each other are brought together by a crime boss to do a diamond robbery. False names are given, the plan is laid down in details and nobody has any doubts of it becoming a success. But right on the spot, police is waiting to grab them red-handed and the group is attacked from all sides. As one of their members gets killed, there is panic among the team and they are all onto each other in order to spot that in-house mole who is an undercover cop standing right amongst them shamelessly. And the real film is all about these crucial moments of finding that one betrayer only, supported by some fabulous writing, witty dialogues and extremely believable performances.

Another worth mentioning point about this masterpiece is that though it talks about the detailed planning of a heist, yet the heist is never shown to the viewer and it always remains an off camera job followed by the extreme violence and tension (particularly in the ear cutting scene). It has a tight & completely focused screenplay which takes care of all the six characters in the team superbly. Nevertheless its quite possible that many viewers might not enjoy its first long talkative sequence and find it less intriguing too in the beginning. But once you start flowing with the effortless acting on the screen, the film starts growing and then ends on a solid impressive note which stays in your mind for long.
 
Tarantino also plays a significant role in this fascinating thriller but the veteran simply makes a kill as the writer-director of this tense crime drama without any doubts. Ironically at one end RESERVOIR DOGS is universally accepted as a cult film in the world of cinema, but on the other it has also been criticized for being inspired or copied from various sources including Ringo Lam’s CITY OF FIRE (1987) aka Lung Fu Fong Wan. Hence it is also one of those rare films which are both widely appreciated and accused of plagiarism together. Interestingly Bollywood too made a version of it called KAANTE in 2002 featuring Amitabh Bachchan & Sanjay Dutt in the lead and RD still continues to be an inspirational source for many crime thrillers till date. So if you are a die-hard lover of this particular genre then you got to see this cult-classic as a must since it rightly deserve the status its enjoys due to its novel, brutal yet highly realistic treatment of a gruesome tale.

Starring :  Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Chris Penn, Quentin Tarantino and more.

After a long time, read something exceptionally encouraging about our Indian Cinema in a recent news article talking about the conversation between one of the most innovative directors of the west, Quentin Tarantino and our own representative of new age cinema, Anurag Kashyap.

As revealed in the link given below, renowned director Quentin Tarantino saw an animated action sequence in a 2001 film which happened to be Kamal Hassan starrer Tamil-Hindi film “Aalavandhan” aka “Abhay”, directed by Suresh Krishna, wherein Kamal played a double role of twin brothers. Taking inspiration from that animated fight scene in the film, Quentin conceived a major sequence in his famous cult classic “Kill Bill” released in 2003-04 (in two parts) and also admitted this himself during his personal talks with Anurag.
Taking into account the director’s body of work which includes films such as “Pulp Fiction”, “Jackie Brown”, “Inglourious Basterds” & “Death Proof”, it’s indeed a great encouraging compliment for not only Suresh Krishna but also for all those talented Indian film-makers who are willing to introduce more such innovations in our Indian films. Moreover it also proves the fact that there is no dearth of world class creative talent in our own Industry and the only thing these artistic minds need is the solid backing of a visionary production house and nothing else.
With a hope to get more such energetic news on a regular basis….!
Cheers with HIS BLESSINGS
