Movie Synopsis:
When they escape a Siberian labor camp in 1940, seven courageous multi-national prisoners discover the true meaning of friendship as their epic journey takes them across thousands of miles of hostile terrain en-route to India and their freedom.

The film stars Colin Farrell, Ed Harris, Jim Sturgess, Saoirse Ronan, and should be on your must-see list of 2010, although we don’t know the film’s exact release date yet. Hit the jump to check out the new images.



Interview THE WAY BACK:
It’s been six years since Peter Weir’s last film, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, and that length of time combined with a filmmaker of Weir’s talent makes for tremendous anticipation. It looks like that anticipation will finally pay off as the first images of Weir’s new film, The Way Back, have landed online. Here’s the brief synopsis of the film:
Opening this weekend is The Way Back and it’s the first film from director Peter Weir (Witness, Master And Commander, & Dead Poet’s Society) in seven years. Starring Colin Farrell, Ed Harris, Mark Strong, Jim Sturgess, and Saoirse Ronan, the film is inspired by the true story of a group of “multi-national prisoners from a Siberian gulag in 1940 and their epic life affirming journey over thousands of miles across five hostile countries.” The film is based on Slavomir Rawicz’s acclaimed book, The Long Walk: The True Story of a Trek to Freedom, as well as other real life accounts. You can watch seven clips from the film here. Anyway, I recently got to speak with most of the cast and Peter Weir and I’ll be posting a new interview everyday this week. Yesterday I posted Jim Sturgess, and today I’ve got Ed Harris.



During my time with Harris we talked about what being on CHiPs (yes, the Erik Estrada show from the ’70’s) did for his career, how did he get involved in The Way Back, how does Peter Weir get such great performances from all his actors, and is he thinking about directing another movie soon. Hit the jump for the video:



Movie Review:
The Way Back, Weir’s first film in seven years, is based on the audacious (but probably fictitious) account of the Russian prison escape and subsequent 4,500 trek – from Siberia via the Gobi desert to India – by seven Polish/American prisoners in 1940. With punishing snow/desert terrain the mission appears doomed from the start, however these men ultimately seek freedom and would rather die attempting it than perish as prisoners of Stalin. One thing The Way Back doesn’t lack is stamina.



And true to form Weir doesn’t disappoint. He invests time in allowing us to get to know his characters, shows archetypal skill in weaving out well-rounded performances – of which particular merit must go to a never better Colin Farrell as a gutsy sneaky prisoner type – layers his story with humour and pathos, directs with stylish, confident flare and finally brings us the jaw-dropping spectacle we yearn from such a survival-against-the-odds yarn. To top this there’s a marvellously moving score by Burkhard Dallwitz which notches the film up to near Leanesque levels of epic indulgence. But regrettably there’s something curiously amiss.



And it took me a little while to realise the problem was ultimately that of emotional detachment. For some strange reason The Way Back lacks the emotional element that is essential for this kind of story. It’s not that the characters are particularly clich├ęd – though we have the weathered veteran type in Ed Harris‘ American emigrant and the young arrogant type in Jim Sturgess operative leader – or that there’s a lack of girl power to keep things grounded – Atonement’s Saoirse Ronan provides that necessity – but when characters begin to lag behind and die it’s more of a ‘oh!’ than a ‘oh no!’ It’s a pity as Weir really does paint the gruelling oppression with gutsy realism. We shudder as we see the group experience freezing conditions, we boil up as they burn and blister across deadly desert plains, we rejoice when they briefly find water and then wince when we glimpse at their terribly worn feet and elongated toe-nails. But unfortunately we are not moved enough and after a while their trek across the Gobe becomes a trifle tiresome and, akin to the doom-ridden characters, we just want it to all be over.



While Weir’s film does justice to a compelling story there’s little in the way of great Gallipoli style audience to character connection. Consequently The Way Back is a journey you rather wouldn’t have taken. However there’s still much to admire, including excellent chemistry from an impressive cast, a super uplifting score which will pleasingly play in your head for hours after, miles upon miles of eye-catching scenery and superb direction from Australia’s finest auteur.

Thus Dil Toh Baccha hai, with its real characters and relatable situations, takes a funny look at love and the extent people will go to avoid it or achieve it!
It's a film that promises to bring a smile to your face!



In News: 'Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji' to be released on Republic Day.
New Delhi, Jan 15 (IANS) Realistic film maker Madhur Bhandarkar Saturday confirmed that the release date of his first comedy "Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji" has been brought forward to Jan 26 from Jan 28.
"'Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji' - the film was slated for release on Fri, Jan 28, but Wed, Jan 26 is Republic Day, so film's release preponed by two days," the National Award winning director confirmed on micro-blogging site Twitter.
"Dil Toh Bachcha Hai Ji" is about how life changes for three men with the entry of three women.
The movie stars Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, Omi Vaidya, Shruti Hassan, Shraddha Das and Shazahn Padamsee.
In the film, Ajay will be seen playing a man in his mid-30s going through a divorce, when a much younger girl comes into his life and he starts changing himself.
Bhandarkar has earlier made serious women-oriented films like "Chandni Bar", "Page 3", "Corporate" and "Fashion".



Taking a huge risk with romantic comedy: Madhur Bhandarkar:
Mumbai, Jan 16 (IANS) It's not easy to come out of your comfort zone and helm a film in a completely new genre. But Madhur Bhandarkar has done just that and admits that he's taken a "huge risk" by doing romantic comedy "Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji" instead of his trademark movies on contemporary issues.
"I've taken a huge risk with this film, but I feel proud of it. I'm sure people will appreciate (it). They have given me love and liked my work all these years," Bhandarkar told IANS in an interview.



"Some didn't even do well at the box office, but they were critically acclaimed and got the respect they needed. So I'm sure they (audiences) will shower the same love for 'Dil Toh Bachcha Hai Ji' because when they see the film they will feel Madhur Bhandarkar's stamp and signature style is very evident in the film. It is very much in my parameters," the National Award winning director said.
After being a part of the industry for a decade and making path-breaking films like "Chandni Bar", "Satta", "Page 3" and "Fashion" among others, Bhandarkar said some of his colleagues had suggested that he try his hand at comedy as well.
"People who know me closely always thought that I have a good sense of humour...in fact all the people I've worked with said 'why don't you make a comedy'. Even during 'Chandni Bar' days, Tabu used to tell me to foray into comedy.
"I always felt that one day I will do it, but then there were so many other subjects that were intriguing and I got busy with that, so I didn't have time...but after 'Jail' I thought that now I should make a comedy," said the 42-year-old.
The film, slated to hit
While the film is from mscreens Jan 26, stars Ajay Devgn, Omi Vaidya and Emraan Hashmi in the lead. And it revolves around the different experiences that these three men go through in love.en's point of view, actresses Shruti Hassan, Shraddha Das and Shahzan Padamsee play pivotal roles.
But what made Bhandakar, whose cinema is usually women-oriented, shift his focus to men this time?
"I never plan a film gender-based. I wanted to make this film so I did and there are women characters in this film too with very well etched out roles, but definitely it is dominated by male point of view. Let's see if people realise that Madhur can give a very good male point of view as well," the filmmaker said.

The show also has Jaaved Jafferi and choreographer Terence Lewis as the other judges of the show. Chak Dhoom Dhoom marks as the debut show for the hiss girl on television, however her tantrums have made it impossible for the production people to run the show any further in her presence.

Model-turned-actress Yana Gupta is yet to get over her recent 'pantyless stunt'. In fact, it continues to haunt her though the incident took place over a month ago. You may think that it was a publicity stunt but the actress maintained that it was an accident.

“I totally understand if people feel it was a publicity stunt. But it was an accident. I just couldn’t sit for too long keeping my legs crossed. Besides, why would I choose an event for kids to gain publicity like that? If I wanted to do all that for publicity, I would have instead posed in a stylish, sensuous, raunchy manner for some magazine and got more attention,” DNA quoted the actress as saying.

It may be recalled that Yana was photographed sans panties at an international children's charity event held in November last year (2010). She tried to avoid being photographed but could not cover her short black dress. The photographers managed to get what they wanted – Yana Gupta without underwear pics.

Well, the actress, who is known for the performance in the item number “Babujee dheere chalo”, has just done an item song. “I have just done an item number recently. And you’ll get to see that soon. Besides, how can I keep away from item numbers? They are like an investment. If my song is a hit, it translates into more dance show offers, stage-shows and tours. Right now, topping my priority list is acting. And I am concentrating on that,” informs the actress,” DNA quoted her as saying. “I love singing, playing the guitar and flute, and I want to explore that further. I plan to release my album and I am working on it with a UK-based company,” she added.

The diva of tinsel town Madhuri Dixit has ruled the silver screen for several years and she still resides in our hearts. However, when it comes to playing a mother on-screen the diva does not have any problems. In an interview Madhuri cleared the air with her million dollar smile as she remarked that she does not have any issues to play a mother provided the script is good. Rumours were doing the rounds that Madhuri refused to play mother to Sonam Kapoor. Madhuri added that here is simply no reason for her to enact a mother’s role on-screen as she is a mother herself.

The gossip mills are buzzing that Madhuri might give her nod to play a mother to Sonam Kapoor. In-fact news are rife that Anil Kapoor might make an Indian version of "Freaky Friday". Madhuri has added that she was unable to speak to Anil Kapoor as he is out of town. Madhuri further added that she will speak to Anil once he gets back. Madhuri has delivered many hits with Anil and it seems that she is looking forward to work with Anil.

The actress is currently in India to judge a dance reality show 'Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 4' for Sony. Madhuri has her hands full in India as he is busy enjoying her stint as a judge in 'Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 4' and she is also busy reading scripts to finalize a movie deal. In an interview Madhuri added that she is open to work with new directors provided the role and the script manages to leave an impression in her mind.

New York, (ANI): A judge has blocked Jenni “JWoww” Farley’s ex-boyfriend from distributing nude pictures of the reality TV star. According to TMZ.com, the judge has ruled that Tom Lippolis has no legal right to distribute naked images of the “Jersey Shore” star, reports the New York Post.

The judge said that the photos in question were taken without permission and while Farley “was under the effects of pre-surgical and post-surgical anestesia”, when the photos were taken last February. Lippolis held that the photos would not harm Farley’s reputation because she has stated in the past that she wanted to pose for Playboy and that she was "always a willing participant and always gave consent."

The photos depict the bombshell star before she had liposuction and a second breast augmentation. The case is set for arbitration, where a final ruling will be made concerning the future of the photos.

Washington (ANI): Singer Christina Aguilera reportedly made herself at home in Jeremy Renner’s bed after she got wasted at a party for his 40th birthday, which she had not been invited to. Aguilera, 30, and her boyfriend Matthew Rutler are said to have made themselves at home in ‘The Hurt Locker’ star’s bedroom, and Renner is said to have not been amused.

According to a report in the new issue of Us Weekly, a week after his birthday party, Renner ranted to friends about the ‘Burlesque’ star’s behaviour. “Someone comes and tells me she’s in my room,” Fox News quoted Renner as telling friends at In Style’s Golden Globe party on January 16.

“I run up and open the door and I’m like, ‘Um, hi. What are you doing?’ She just starts slurring. Her boyfriend was rubbing her back. Who comes to someone’s birthday party that they don’t know and gets in their bed?! My parents were there!” he is said to have stated.

Another source added: “Christina was a mess at that party. She acted like a fool. Her boyfriend was shushing her and telling her to go to sleep.” But Renner’s rep said that Aguilera was in deed at the party and “enjoying herself, but she wasn’t in his bed”.

Canadian rock star Bryan Adams is all set to rock Indian fans with his music from February 12 to 16. However, this does not come so easily as the musician will have to be satisfied by fulfilling his long list of demands during his tour in the country.

The International star has asked for 100 white towels for the crew and a hospitality party after every concert. The tour, which starts in Pune, will travel to Bangalore, Mumbai, New Delhi and finally Hyderabad. Bryan also wants forklifts and the barricades for the standing audience should not be more than 1.2 m away from the stage as his band wants to interact with the audience from as close as possible.

Netsurf Entertainment headed by Sujit Jain, is bringing the Indian edition of Bryan Adams’ Live Full Band Show World Tour. It has partnered with Suniel Shetty’s Save the Children India NGO and Mana for the donation of a section of the Corporate/VVIP ticket sales to an NGO that works for the underprivileged children.

However, Adams is not going to compromise with his demands for anything. He has demanded rooms with big windows that open to outside and they should not have flourescent lights as he does not like them. He wants adjustable incandescent lighting in his room. The 51-year old singer will be coming to the country with a crew of 16 people. He is also bringing his personal chef since he is a strict vegetarian.

Well, after fulfilling all these demands, we hope the country gets some real entertainment when the band visits the country.

Watch Online Indian actress Perveen Babi Biography,Photos & Videos



Yaadain on death anniversary of Parveen Babi
Born: April 4, 1949(1949-04-04) Junagadh
Died: January 20, 2005(2005-01-20) (aged 55)
Mumbai: Occupation: Actress
Years active:1973 - 1983

Parveen Babi was an Indian actress, who is most remembered for her glamorous roles alongside top heroes of the 1970s and early 1980s in blockbusters like Deewar, Namak Halaal, Amar Akbar Anthony and Shaan.

Personal life and education:
Parveen was born in Junagadh, Gujarat in a Muslim family. She did her early schooling in Aurangabad and later attended St. Xavier's College, Ahmedabad. Her father Vali Mohammed Babi, was an administrator with the Nawab of Junagadh. The family owned considerable land areas and had some royal ancestry. Parveen was born fourteen years after the marriage of her parents and was the only child. She lost her father at the age of seven.

Parveen did not marry but had live in relationships with married men: director Mahesh Bhatt, actors Kabir Bedi, and Danny Denzongpa. She was also strongly rumoured to have had an affair with her co-star Amitabh Bachchan. Mahesh Bhatt later wrote and directed Arth (1982), a semi-autobiographical film about his extramarital relationship with Babi, and wrote and produced Woh Lamhe (2006) based on actual facts about his relationship with her.



Career: Charitra (1973) To Iraada (1990)
She made her film debut with the film Charitra opposite cricketer Salim Durrani in 1973 while still in college. The film was a resounding flop but Parveen was noticed and was snapped up for several more films. Her first major hit was Majboor (1974) opposite Amitabh Bachchan. Parveen was known for her portrayal of iconoclastic women who did not care about the conventional norms of society. Along with Zeenat Aman, Parveen helped change the image of the Indian film heroine. Their Western looks and anglicised accents signaled new trends in what was fashionable.

She was the first Indian actress to have been featured on TIME magazine's cover, in July 1976, much to the consternation of her contemporaries. In her most successful films, she was paired opposite Amitabh Bachchan, who was one of the biggest stars of the decade, in cinematic blockbusters like Deewaar (1975) Amar Akbar Anthony (1977), Shaan (1980), Kaalia (1981), and Khud-daar (1982), a pairing which became very popular. However, she also gave hits opposite actors like Shashi Kapoor in Suhaag (1979 film) (1979), Kaala Patthar (1979) and Namak Halaal (1982), Jeetendra in Meri Aawaaz Suno (1981) and Vinod Khanna in The Burning Train (1980).

She was often compared with her contemporary Zeenat Aman due to their common image as sex symbols. In fact, she acted alongside Zeenat in Mahaan (1983) and Ashanti (1982) (inspired by the American television show Charlie's Angels, with the third role played by Shabana Azmi). In films like Deewar (1975), Shaan (1980) and Namak Halaal (1982) her screen presence may have been minimal (the films largely working around the hero) but Parveen brought a certain attractive aloofness to the roles and songs she appeared in. In Manoj Kumar's big hit Kranti (1981) she overshadowed Hema Malini who played the main lead. Parveen also acted in offbeat films like Vinod Pande's Yeh Nazdeekiyan (1982) playing the role of the "other woman" opposite Marc Zuber.

Her success did not run into the mid-eighties as she had left the film industry to move to New York in 1983. Many of her completed films released in the following years right up until her last film, Iraada, which released in 1990.

Later life:
After rumours about Babi suffering from schizophrenia began making rounds, she sought mental solace through alternative contemporary spirituality. She followed "Osho" for a few years and later became involved with the teachings of U.G.Krishnamurti in New York. She returned to Mumbai in 1992 where she was unrecognizable as her former self after having put on a considerable amount of weight. She accused many foreign dignitaries including Bill Clinton and her former co-star, Amitabh Bachchan, of conspiring to kill her but her petition in court was dismissed for lack of evidence. In 2002, she again hit the headlines when she filed an affidavit in the special court hearing the 1993 serial bomb blasts case, claiming that she had gathered clinching evidence against actor Sanjay Dutt showing his involvement in the case, but she did not turn up in court after being summoned saying that she was afraid of being killed.

Death:
She was found dead in her Mumbai apartment on 22 January 2005 after her residential society secretary alerted the police that she had not collected milk and newspapers from her doorstep for three days. The police suspected that she might have died three days previously, though the cause of her death was not immediately known. She was found to have gangrene of the foot as a complication of her diabetic condition. The police ruled out any foul play. Later it was said that the cause of death appeared to be complications from diabetes.

After her death, her body was taken to Cooper Hospital, where it lay unclaimed till evening. Soon after, filmmakers Mahesh Bhatt and Ashok Pandit offered to perform the last rites if there was no claimant. However, her close relatives in Junagadh were informed and the closest relative was found to be H.H. Begum Farhat Sultana Babi of Balasinor. She along with her son, Nawabzada Salauddinkhan Babi rushed to Mumbai and after completing the formalities the body of Parveen Babi was handed over to her by the Mumbai Police for the last rites. Her burial was conducted according to Islamic rites and Babi was buried next to her mother at Santa Cruz, in Mumbai on 23 January 2005.

Saif Ali Khan is a true-blue nawaab. A few years ago, he bought a spacious penthouse apartment in Bandra and spent over a crore doing it up. But now, he wants to sell the apartment before even moving in! The reason? He's recently noticed that the residents of the building hang their clothes to dry in their balconies!

Saif bought the penthouse in 14-storey building Hicons Enclave (previously called La View) on 14th Road in Khar a few years ago. He then roped in a top notch interior designer to do it up and took personal interest in every aspect of designing. But now he wants to offload the place.

Saif Ali Khan recently visited the place with girlfriend Kareena Kapoor to take stock and he got the shock of his life. Says an insider, "When he bought the place the building was new there were no other buildings around. But a year later, that had changed. There are now several under-construction buildings around it. One of the plus points for him was the fact that it was the tallest building in the neighbourhood but it is no longer the case now. Also, when he'd started doing up his house, none of the residents had moved in.

“Now, the occupants of the other apartments were proudly displaying their washed laundry in window sills and balcony grills, which further put off the Chote Nawab. He was appalled and has decided to sell the place. That's Saif for you every inch the nawab who is willing to give up money for his littlest whims and fancies!"

It is learnt that the actor paid Rs. 14.9 crore (approx) and now wants sell the 10000 sq feet apartment for about Rs.25 crore. The good news is that he has at least made a profit. SAK remained unavailable for comment.

India’s longest running investigation series ‘C.I.D’ is going to be made into a full-fledged Bollywood film very soon. Sony TV has successfully run the show for last 12 years. The show is soon going to have its big screen avatar, which will be made fully entertaining with an item number.

Producer BP Singh claims to offer lots of action and drama. He says that they have been planning for this movie since last three years but could not be materialized. Singh says that the team needs to make the movie very innovative in terms of technology as well as storyline to attract the loyal viewers of the show.

Singh informs that the project is still in the stage of writing and pre-production but they are aiming to release it in 2012. Since beginning of the show, Shivaji Satam has remained the main protagonist ACP Pradyuman. We have been used to the characters like senior inspector Daya, senior inspector Abhijeet, inspector Fredericks and Dr. Salunkhe. This team of detectives work for the Mumbai Crime Investigation Department (CID). They usually work on murder mysteries.

However, Singh adds that the film version will have a totally different investigation case, which will also have scope of some songs. They want to make the movie commercially viable and are planning to make Daya shake his leg in one item song. Daya is now seen competing in the dance based reality show ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 4’, which is being considered to be a learning session for him. Singh says that people are stunned to see a huge elephant like Daya showing his dancing moves in a competitive show.

We hope, the fans love the movie the same way they loved the TV series.
