RIP Vinod Khanna

A classic portrait of Sridevi with Vinod Khanna on the sets of Chandni...

So sad to hear the news that actor turned politician Vinod Khanna passed away earlier today. He was a fine and handsome Indian actor who was the star of several great Indian films.

We here know him primarily for the movies where he worked with Sridevi, starting with Zameen (unreleased), Garajna (unrelased), the blockbuster Chandni (1989) and Pathar Ke Insaan (1990) and finally Farishtay (released February 22, 1991

Last seen at Sridevi's 50th birthday bash with his five-time co-star, he looked hail and hearty with his stylish spectacles and leather bomber jacket... To see him in the leaked image from the hospital was sad.

May he rest in peace.

Woman in Red: Sridevi

Woman in Red: Sridevi

Our 80th post of Sridevi in Chandni (1989)

Although Sridevi burst into the national consciousness in a flourish of colour, amrapali outfits, pots and pans in Nainon main Sapna (Himmatwala, 1983), the seminal film that switched many non-Sri fans to hardcore fanaticss was undoubtedly Chandni (1989). Gone was the gawky teen with gawdy colours. Voila, the polished perfetion of a chiffon-sari clad diva.

Though Sridevi went to win the Best Actress award for Chaalbaaz that same year, the box-office bonanza and the better film (purely for originality and overall polish) was clearly Chandni. Less of a movie, more of a movement, Chandni shifted the barrage of Bollywood movies from the cacophony of mindless violence and ear-shattering music, to love and pure harmony. And the projection of the ideal Indian woman was dipped in moonlight.

We saw this 1989 film again recently and were mesmerised all over again. Sridevi is divine in the film. Sridevi is divine. Period.

A chance to see Sridevi sooner? YES! Mom to be preponed

Mom, a thriller/drama directed by Ravi Udyawar is set for a July 7, 2017 release, its makers said in a statement released to the press. Mom also stars renowned actors Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Akshaye Khanna in pivotal roles. Academy Award winning music director, A R Rahman, has composed the music for the film.
