WOW! Diana Penty, John Abraham look quite kickass in the posters of Parmanu – The Story Of Pokhran!

via Bollywood Hungama Diana Penty arrived in Bollywood in 2012 with the romcom Cocktail. Starring Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone, she managed to stand out despite these two talented actors. Her stunning looks and girl-next-door image worked very well. Shockingly, she disappeared after the success of this film and her next film arrived four years later – Happy Bhag Jayegi. Thankfully, the wait was worth it. The part of Happy was a challenging one but Diana came out with flying colours.Her next film was the recently released Lucknow Central. Not just the film, but even her performance was disappointing. But looks like Diana Penty is all set to compensate for it with her next film Parmanu – The Story Of Pokhran. It features her in army uniform and her look was already out in June this year. Yet, the poster of Parmanu – The Story Of Pokhran released today and featuring her is worth watching. The manner in which the uniform looks great on her is seen to be believe…

Newton Movie review

via reviews 'Newton'
Director: Amit Masurkar
Cast: Rajkumar Rao, Pankaj Tripathi
Rating:This film's story (by Amit Masurkar; screenplay co-written with Mayank Tewari) has the germ of an idea that should make you rethink the notion that Indians have been gloating over for years--the fact that we're a liberal democracy. So what if we aren't quite the heavyweight GDP champions of the world--we can still vote in, and vote out, our governments. This apparently means we're miles ahead of the neighbouring giant China. Sure.How does this democracy really pan out at the ground level? One isn't quite certain. But elections, we know. You can touch and feel them, as it were. And they've largely been “free and fair” (to use popular journalese), at least ever since the early '90s.To quote a line from this film, there are 90 lakh polling booths in India, and every Lok Sabha election, India sets a new world record for the number of people it serv…

It all started somewhere in May when it came to light that there exists a feud between lead actress Kangana Ranaut and writer Apurva Asrani. Apurva was livid when Kangana claimed in an interview that Simran was quite a dark film and that it’s her who made it light.
