Movie Review: Newton

via filmfares Newton Review

Cast: Rajkumar Rao, Pankaj Tripathi, Anjali Patil, Raghubir Yadav, Sanjay Mishra, Hardik Meriya

Amit V Masurkar
Quick take: Gravitas of great storytellingRating: 4.5 stars

Some films are as important to the world as an apple falling on the head of Sir Isaac Newton. Whether it’s their gravity or gravitas, these films are a sheer joy to behold. Amit V Masurkar’s Newton, is a film about the most ordinary man living out the most extraordinary experience in the most commonplace of Indian locales. The sheer brilliance here comes from the fact that Masurkar and his co-writer Mayank Tewari pack-in so much detail. It begs you to wonder if the drafts of Newton must’ve as bulky as the Indian constitution. Because that’s the level of insight and relevance of this film. It takes something as basic as the right to vote in the world’s largest democracy and turns it into a story of subtle but sublime drama. This is definitely one the best films…

via filmfares
Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter Sara Ali Khan is finally debuting in Bollywood with Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath opposite Sushant Singh Rajput. The shooting for the film has just recently begun, and we learn that the starkid is already throwing tantrums on the sets. If the reports are to be believed, Sara has been regularly showing up late on the sets for shooting. 

A source close to the development of the film revealed, "She wants to be sure about her look in her debut movie, and hence she wants her makeup and dress to be fine. Therefore she is taking a long time to get ready. She gets multiple changes made to her look. She clicks pictures and sends it to someone and then suggests changes to her look according to the responses she gets."

Since this is causing a delay in the shooting schedule, the source added that, "Abhishek tried to talk her into mending her ways. But Sara prevailed, and she still has her way on the sets.&qu…

via filmfares
Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover tied the knot in April last year, and it’s been more than a year of happily-ever-after for the two. But as we all know, Bipasha was committed to John Abraham for almost nine years. And it came as a shock to many, when the two parted ways in 2011. 

But after so many years, recently at a media interaction, the gossipmongers questioned Bipasha about her past with John and the aftermaths of their break-up. And the actress who chose not to stay quiet, replied, “No. It was definitely not amicable. No break-up is ever amicable. Otherwise, no one would break up. There are always reasons. Otherwise, there won't be any break-ups. I felt abandoned. I was living in a lala land till then. Now sitting today I feel I was so foolish. During those nine years, I retracted from my work, pushed back opportunities, stood like a rock for the man I loved, did not meet people just to give that extra time to make my relationship work …

Recently, while Jacqueline made a quick escape to Sri Lanka to see her family, it was Varun and Taapsee who launched the Oonchi Hai Building 2.0 in Jaipur together. And just before the song was released, the two kept the fans on a series of teasers with their BTS pictures and more. However, it seems that Varun’s bonding with Taapsee isn’t going down well with the former’s alleged girlfriend, Natasha Dalal.

An inside source revealed to a leading daily that, "Natasha isn't a movie star, and she reacts to news and gossip. When people started talking about how good Varun and Alia Bhatt looked as a couple on screen, Natasha asked Varun to avoid too many films with her. Now she doesn't want Varun to push Taapsee too hard."
