Bollywood horror blends with other genres, top stars sign up

Bollywood horror blends with other genres, top stars sign up
New Delhi, Feb 23: Bollywood horror is evolving beyond simple tales of ghosts, haunted houses and possession stories. Film makers are learning to give a spin to the tale. New sub-genres are being created blending horror with comedy, romance, mythology and more.

Horror comedies, Horror films with social message, and mythological twist to supernatural lore are all plot ideas that fall under the broader genre of horror.

What's more, A-list stars are joining the horror bandwagin. For long, the genre was all about B and C-list actors, given the low production costs. The scene briefly changed when Ram Gopal Varma made Bhoot, casting Ajay Devgn, Urmila Matondkar, Fardeen Khan and Rekha in the film. However, that was a one-off case. The horror genre has mostly been about modest cast.

Till now. Lately, top stars as Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan, Katrina Kaif, Varun Dhawan, Kriti Sanon, Yami Gautam, Jacqueline Fernandez,

Bala turns 1: Ayushmann wanted to bust 'stereotyped notions of beauty' with film
Mumbai, Nov 8 (Ians) The Ayushmann Khurrana-starrer Bala had released on this day a year ago, and the actor says he wanted to tell people to love themselves through the film, because everyone is special and unique.

"With 'Bala', I wanted to normalise the fact that perfection is a human-made myth, and it creates immense discrimination that breaks hearts and families. Through this film I wanted to tell people to love themselves because everyone is special and unique in their own way. I wanted to tell everyone to not fall prey to stereotyped notions of beauty because that has divided people," Ayushmann said.

"I tried to tell people how counterproductive the pursuit of this so-called perfection is, and I was happy that audiences showered

The 15 Best Indian Films of 2019

Another eventful year for Indian film is almost over now, and it’s a good time to reflect on how far Indian Cinema has come, and in what ways it needs to push the envelope further.

The onset of the digital age has opened up new floodgates for content to reach audiences, who now, thanks to streaming platforms, have access to many smaller independently made films which get lost among the big brother releases on the big screen, many of these smaller films boasting of stellar filmmaking and compelling storylines.

There are certain films I really liked initially, especially Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy, which is the Indian entry to the Oscars, but I have lost much of my enthusiasm towards it by the end of the year. But that happens as our response to films change over time.

The year’s technically not over yet, big releases like Dabangg 3

Bollywood Box Office Report Of The Week: 12 Dec 2019

Next Friday will witness two prominent new releases, Yash Raj Film?s, Mardaani 2 and Emraan Hashmi?s The Body.

The front runner will obviously be Rani Mukerji?s Mardaani 2, keeping in mind the topical subject as also the brand value of the franchise, while The Body too will find its own patrons with Emraan in a taut suspense thriller.?

Checking out last ?Friday?s interesting clash between Kartik Aryan?s Pati Patni Aur Woh and Arjun Kapoor?s Panipat, the battle was comprehensively won by Pp andW which netted nearly 35 crores as opposed to the 18 crores opening weekend by the Ashutosh directed film.

As things stand Pati Patni Aur Woh is all set to be at least a semi-hit from here, while Panipat will struggle for survival. The story is similar in the overseas as Pati Patni Aur Woh grossed $425,000 in the Us as opposed to the $300,000 by Panipat,

Bollywood Box Office Report Of The Week: 5th Dec 2019

This Friday will witness an interesting clash between Kartik Aryan?s Pati Patni Aur Woh and Arjun Kapoor?s Panipat.

There is no doubt that given Kartik?s fan following amongst the young generation, Pp andW is going to be the front runner though the director of Panipat, Ashutosh too has a reputation as far as historicals are concerned!

Checking out the major new release of the week, Reliance Entertainment?s Vidyut-Adah starrer Commando 3. The film saw a decent start but improved as the days progressed netting 19 crore during the opening weekend, and the reasonable hold during the weekdays augurs well for the film.

The other two releases of the week, ?Yeh Saali Aashiqui and Hotel Mumbai, could not find much of an audience.

Coming to Bhushan Kumar?s John Abraham, Arshad Warsi, Pulkit Samrat and Ileana D?Cruz starrer, Pagalpanti, the film could not impress the audience collecting 4 crore from Bombay,

Bollywood Box Office Report Of The Week: 28 Nov 2019

The major new film of the week is Reliance Entertainment?s Vidyut-Adah starrer Commando 3. Given the popularity of the franchise, the film is likely to embark on a decent start.

The other listed releases include titles such as Yeh Saali Aashiqui, Hotel Mumbai, Luv U-turn and Tony, but none of them appear promising or competitive enough as compared to Commando 3.?

Last week?s prominent release, ?Bhushan Kumar?s John Abraham, Arshad Warsi, Pulkit Samrat, and Ileana D?Cruz starrer, Pagalpanti, failed to impress at the box-office netting around 21 crores during the opening weekend. The weekdays too have been very ordinary and it doesn?t augur well for the fate of the film.

Checking out Siddharth-Ritesh?s Marjaavaan, the film maintained very well during the first week as it collected 3 crore from Bombay, 80 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 40 lakhs from Surat, 20 lakhs from Baroda, 11.50 lakhs from Rajkot, 75 lakhs from Pune, 14.50 lakhs from Nasik,

Pagalpanti is dull, T-Series' Marjaavaan succeeds, Bala on way to super hit!

The prominent release of the week, ?John Abraham, Arshad Warsi, Pulkit Samrat, and Ileana D?Cruz starrer Pagalpanti, could not quite impress at the ticket window, despite the good promotion, as it opened to a dull 15 percent start on an average. Having said that, the film can still make amends during the remaining two days of the inaugural weekend.

Meanwhile, T-Series? Siddharth-Ritesh starrer Marjaavaan managed to spring a pleasant surprise with an inspired run, netting 37-38 crore during the opening week from India. The film is already a box-office success and can upgrade to at least a semi-hit, based on the initial second weekend trend.

Concluding with Ayushmann Khurrana?s ?Amar Kaushik directed Bala, after a good opening week (71 crores), the film saw a very steady second one as it mopped up 27 crores, thus netting 98 crores (to be validated) in two weeks from India and is on way to a super hit status.
