0

The Internet Movie Database, better known as IMDb, has released its list of Top 10 most popular Indian films and web series of the first half of 2022, with Vivek Agnihotri’s ‘The Kashmir Files’ and the MX Player web series, ‘Campus Diaries’, topping it in their respective categories.

Rather than base its rankings on box-office collections, small statistical samplings, or reviews from professional critics, IMDb draws on IMDbPro data on page views of IMDb users in India.

In the movies list, ‘The Kashmir Files’, the surprise hit of the year, is followed by the epic period dramas from the South, the Yash-starrer ‘K.G.F: Chapter 2’ and S.S. Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’, in the second and third spots.

Alia Bhatt’s ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ shares the fourth position with the Tamil action thriller ‘Vikram’, starring Kamal Haasan, Vijay Sethupathi and Faahad Faasil. The other movies in the list are the Amitabh Bachchan-led ‘Jhund’, Akshay Kumar’s ‘Samrat Prithviraj’, Ajay Devgn’s directorial ‘Runway 34’, the Disney+ Hotstar film ‘A Thursday’, featuring Yami Gautam and Neha Dhupia in principal roles, and the Malayalam coming-of-age romantic drama, ‘Hridayam’ with Pranav Mohanlal.

Among web series, ‘Campus Diaries’ is followed by Tigmanshu Dhulia’s ‘The Great Indian Murder’, which is based on Vikas Swarup’s best-selling novel ‘Six Suspects’. ‘Rocket Boys’, which tells the story of India’s space pioneers Homi J. Bhabha and Vikram Sarabhai, is at No. 3 on the list.

‘Panchayat’, ‘Human’, ‘Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein’, ‘Apharan’, ‘Escaype Live’, ‘Mai’ and ‘The Fame Game’ also find a place in the list.

South films go national; Hindi films fail to deliver

0

The recent South-dubbed film, ‘KGF: Chapter 2’, did at the box office in the first two days what a major original Hindi film takes four to seven days to match — that is, touch the Rs 100-crore mark. And, no, the South films do not need to issue inflated collection figures to the media.

While garnering Rs 100 crore in two days, ‘KGF: Chapter 2’, also set a new first-day record of collecting Rs 53 crore, against the previous best of Rs 51.6 crore by ‘Thugs of Hindustan’, which starred two of the biggest stars of Hindi films, Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan.

Of course, in the case of ‘Thugs Of Hindustan’, the opening draw was purely because of its star combination. The film collapsed big time in the days that followed because it lacked substance.

So, what ails the Hindi film industry, what do its makers lack? Hindi films lack all that the South films count heavily on. To add to that, the audience is taken for granted by stars-turned-filmmakers. Take for example the Salman Khan films post his comeback with ‘Wanted’, a South remake. His films that followed — ‘Bodyguard’, ‘Ready’ and ‘Kick’, and so on — were all South remakes, reshot without noticeable changes, and proved to be hits.

These films brought Salman Khan back into the reckoning. Enough to carry a film on his own strength. ‘Dabangg’, ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, ‘Sultan’ and ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ benefited because of his new action image.

But then, it was assumed that folks want only Salman Khan. So we got ‘Tubelight’, where he plays a mentally challenged man out in search of his brother who has been missing since the India-China War of 1962, a war that nobody wants to remember. The original was an American film, ‘Little Boy’, about a boy in search of his father who went to fight in World War II.

Was Salman Khan playing a mentally challenged grown-up the same as the young boy in the American film? Apparently, it was not. And there was a dearth of side actors to fill up the screen a la ‘Ready’ or ‘Bodyguard’.

The audience, Salman fans, were again taken for granted in yet another home production, ‘Radhe’, a remake of the South Korean film, ‘The Outlaws’. The film did not bother to introduce its characters and it had no storyline.

A villain had just arrived in Mumbai and taken control of the underworld. Is it that easy to control the underworld anywhere in the world? It looked as if the film had been made by putting together bits and pieces of action scenes deleted from previous Salman films.

Why these two remakes, ‘The Little Boy’ (a failure, otherwise), and ‘The Outlaws’, which was unbearable?!

As for Shah Rukh Khan, he faced the same problem that eventually all actors whose careers are built on romantic films do. He continued with films such as ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’, ‘Zero’ and ‘Dear Zindagi’, and when he tried to be different in movies like ‘Ra.One’ (a superhero film), ‘Fan’ (self-aggrandizement) or ‘Raees’, he had chosen the wrong subjects, ones which failed to change his image.

Akshay Kumar seemed to be doing all right with varied subjects, which were away from the routine and gaining popularity as well as a fan following. He was doing films with nationalistic themes, such as ‘Baby’, ‘Kesari’, ‘Mission Mangal’, ‘Gold’ and ‘Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty’, and also films like ‘Padman’ and ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’, which propagated the government’s agenda.

He was also known to do all good things, such as contribute huge sums to causes. What seems to work against him now is his overexposure. He comes up with as many as four films in a year. When that happens, one ends up with duds such as ‘Laxmii’, ‘Bellbottom’, ‘Sooryavanshi’ and ‘Bachchhan Paandey’.

Aamir Khan has been wise to not carry too many films on his shoulders and yet be at the centre of films such as ‘Secret Superstar’ and ‘Dangal’. He displays more script sense and keeps his exposure limited.

There is a new crop of actors such as Ayushmann Khurrana, Sidharth Malhotra, Kartik Aryan, Vicky Kaushal, Rajkummar Rao and Tiger Shroff, who have been coming up with entertaining fare, but none promising superstardom thus far. Their box-office potential is limited. Shahid Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor and Varun Dhawan have been around for a longer time, still awaiting their tryst with superstardom.

‘Paisa vasool’ was a phrase often used about films in the 1970s and 80s. These were the films starring Dharmendra, Jeetendra, Rajesh Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan and the generation that followed. Rishi Kapoor and Mithun Chakraborty also fitted into the description. They provided wholesome entertainment, which included a balance of romance, drama, comedy and action, but most of all, songs that caught on and helped the film’s prospects. Simply put, these films were worth your while.

Hindi films started losing their audience when they tried to match western trends rather than stick to Indian values. They were shot abroad around themes to justify the locations. The viewers found them alien to their tastes and this spurred the rise of regional-language films.

Now, with admission rates being what they are at multiplexes, the recent lot of Hindi films seem to be falling way short of ‘paisa vasool’ with their limited cast of actors and the stars choosing to stick to a set image in every film.

On their part, the South films stayed rooted to Indian culture, family values and beliefs, and they were infused with the spirit of nationalism. There is rarely a hero who is not fighting for a cause. Be it family honour, injustice or political corruption. Family honour is sacrosanct and so is divine justice, which is delivered in front of a divinity in the climax.

The hero represented the viewer, the hero was doing all that the viewer wished to do. Sing, dance, romance, level up with the villain and fight the establishment. In Hindi films, that ended with Amitabh Bachchan and Sunny Deol films. In the 1980s, films set in rural India stopped being made. When was the last time a Hindi film hero wore a dhoti? I cannot think of anyone after Amitabh Bachchan and Mithun Chakraborty in the 1980s.

Writers of South films make sure that a romance develops on screen as the narrative proceeds. A story is never presented as ‘this is the hero and this is the heroine and they have landed in the film as a couple’. The taming of the shrew formula is still followed. The woman is always presented in a traditional way (when not singing and dancing), especially in family scenes.

Actually, they make an ordinary actress look very much like that ‘model woman’ who used to be idolised in popular magazines such as ‘Chandamama’ or are cast in the image of mythological heroines. And as a rule, there are so many characters in a South film that every viewer finds someone to identify with. Be it a mother, father, sister or a friend.

And, most of all, a hero’s image is not important, his character is. Take for example ‘Pushpa: The Rising’. No glamour anywhere. Those dance steps in the song ‘Srivalli’ are choreographed for the character, not the star, and are being imitated by all, from children to grownups. That is called trendsetting.

I can’t remember when a commercial Hindi film created that kind of a craze. And, somehow, when a South hero takes on a gang of 30-40 goons, he creates an aura around him that makes it look so convincing.

What made ‘RRR’, an anti-British Raj film, such a hit, or, for that matter, ‘KGF: Chapter 2’? They worked because these films have all those ingredients that the Indian viewer identifies with. Then they add crowd, grandeur and finesse.

The hero of a film is given a certain style or look that his fans lap up and keep imitating till the next gimmick catches their fancy. Not many Hindi film stars find that kind of followers. Dev Anand did; so did Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan.

Filmmakers in the South are now adding a couple of Hindi actors to their films. ‘RRR’ has Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn; ‘KGF: Chapter 2’ features Sanjay Dutt and Raveena Tandon. They are familiar faces for the Hindi audience and help enhance a movie’s national appeal.

Hindi filmmakers in the past used to add a southern hero, such as Rajinikanth or Kamal Haasan, to the star cast because the South had no market for Hindi films. This ploy of adding South stars helped sell a film. It made its acceptance easier in the South.

Will the Hindi film industry revive anytime soon? Not likely. Not in the near future. Not with these dated heroes in their 50s with no new actor with the promise of superstardom. And not till talented writers are found. So far, they are making a mess out of even South remakes, ‘Bachchhan Pandey’ and ‘Jersey’ being the recent examples.

The Latest

Ajay Devgn and Kannada star Kichcha Sudeep have got into a debate on social media. Sudeep was speaking at an event to celebrate the success of ‘KGF 2’, which was not at all meant to arouse reactions from Hindi filmmakers.

Yet, Ajay Devgn, whose ‘Runway 34’, was released on Friday, April 29, took on Sudeep on social media by connecting Sudeep’s comment to the recent suggestion by Union Home Minister, Amit Shah that Hindi should be an alternative to English. He never meant to suggest that it replace the mother tongue or the first language of any state. Sudeep’s film, ‘Vikrant Rona’, is slated to be released in its Hindi-dubbed version across North India.

Ajay Devgn asked why dub your film in Hindi? He seemed to have forgotten that for a long time Hindi films were also released dubbed in South Indian languages.

It has led to a war of words to no avail. The audience decides what they want to watch and the Hindi filmmakers have failed to deliver lately, and the dubbed versions of southern films seem to be capturing the all-India market. The stars and actors know that the South makes better films and, hence, keep buying the remake rights.

What must hurt Ajay Devgn more is that his latest venture as actor-director, ‘Runway 34’, has met with a disastrous opening, collecting just about Rs 3 crore, with many shows in cinemas being transferred to either an old film or, as in Mumbai and Maharashtra, to the Marathi film, ‘Chandramukhi’.

There is no good news either for the younger star, Tiger Shroff. His latest film, ‘Heropanti 2’, has opened with equally poor numbers.

Bollywood prefers KGF: Chapter 2 over Jersey

0

A special screening of Shahid Kapoor’s Jersey was held on the evening of Wednesday and the response was heart whelming. Positive reviews poured from the special screening but the film has been struggling to post decent numbers all over. KGF: Chapter 2 dominated Jersey all over and the film remained the first choice for the Bollywood audience. KGF: Chapter 2 collected three times more than Jersey on Friday and KGF: Chapter 2 is expected to have a super stronghold over the weekend.

Shahid Kapoor’s performance in Jersey is widely appreciated but the second half is packed with too much of cricket and the narration is quite slow. Considering the openings, it would be a tough road for Jersey. Gowtam Tinnanuri who directed the original directed the remake too. Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur played the lead roles. Dil Raju, Allu Aravind and Aman Gill produced Jersey.

Kannada star Yash, who is overjoyed with the overwhelming response to ‘KGF: Chapter 2’, posted a video on social media in which he expresses his gratitude for the biggest win in his theatrical career.

Yash recounts an anecdote in the video, saying, “There was a small village that had been facing a drought situation for quite some time so, the villagers decided to have a prayer meet and people turned out in large numbers but there was one boy.”

“He was the only one who appeared with an umbrella. Some called it overconfidence, but it was – faith”, Yash said.

The ‘Googly’ actor continued, “I am like that little boy who believed he would witness this day, and I am in a position where thank you is sufficient, but I would like to thank each of you from the bottom of my heart.”

Yash’s emotional speech concluded as he said, “I’d like to express our appreciation on behalf of the entire KGF team. I hope you’re enjoying the film and will continue to do so. Finally, I’d like to say that your heart is my tent!”

‘KGF: Chapter 2’ was released nationwide on April 14, 2022, destroying a few records and creating some new ones. Helmed by Prashanth Neel, ‘KGF 2’ stars Yash as Rocky Bhaai, an underdog who rises as a super powerful don.

KGF: Chapter 2 dominates Beast even in Tamil Nadu

Vijay’s recent offering Beast competed with Yash’s KGF: Chapter 2 and the films released on Wednesday and Thursday respectively. Beast opened well in South India but the poor word of mouth could not make the film stand strong. The film is declared as a disaster in North India. KGF: Chapter 2 released on Thursday and Beast lost traces in most of the territories of the country. KGF: Chapter 2 showed pure dominance in North India, Telugu states, Karnataka and Kerala. The distributors of Beast had to hold a major number of screens in Tamil Nadu considering the big bet and the image of Vijay. Most of them predicted that Beast would have a terrific run in Tamil Nadu and there would be no impact of KGF: Chapter 2.

After KGF: Chapter 2 received a humongous response, the film turned out to be the first choice for the audience even in Tamil Nadu. The 3 AM shows for KGF: Chapter 2 are sold out while the evening shows of Beast are running with low footfalls. The exhibitors across Tamil Nadu are now replacing Beast with KGF: Chapter 2 and the film is expected to enjoy a decent run starting from today. Beast dropped down on its second day in Tamil Nadu and the day three numbers are quite low. KGF: Chapter 2 is dominating Beast even in Tamil Nadu.

KGF: Chapter 2 is even having a dream run across overseas and almost all the shows are sold out. The film had a stupendous second day all over.

Number Three: Makers tease ‘KGF: Chapter 3’

0

Yash’s ‘KGF: Chapter 2’ has opened to rave reviews, and the producers have hinted at an interesting plot twist near the end of the film.

Those who saw Prashanth Neel’s directorial ‘KGF: Chapter 2’ have seen a hint that the third instalment of the ‘KGF’ franchise will also be made.

Rocky, a Bombay slum kid, rises to the position of business baron in Kolar Gold Fields (KGF), Karnataka. The first chapter depicts his ascension from poverty to affluence. The second part covers Rocky’s reign as ‘King of KGF’.

Nobody expected the third chapter until now, but after getting a hint about it near the end of the first, everyone is excited.

For now, Prashanth Neel and his batchmates have kept everything under the wraps. One wonders if ‘KGF: Chapter 3’ would be made, when would the makers make the news official.

Yash plays Rocky, while Raveena Tandon appears as Ramika Sen, and Sanjay Dutt essays the nefarious villain named Adheera in ‘KGF: Chapter 2’ directed by Prashanth Neel.

Prashanth was concerned about my health, while I was concerned about my role: Sanjay Dutt on ‘KGF 2’

0

As the ‘K.G.F: Chapter 2’ fever sweeps the country, Bollywood veteran Sanjay Dutt, who plays the villain ‘Adheera’ in the film, had an incredible journey that he describes as nothing short of inspiring.

The ‘Munna Bhai M.B.B.S.’ star demonstrated a warrior’s spirit both on and off-screen when he was diagnosed with cancer during the filming of ‘K.G.F: Chapter 2’, but returned to the set with vigour and strength as soon as he recovered.

Speaking about his work experience with Prashanth Neel, Sanjay Dutt said, “Team KGF was very supportive and accommodating, aside from my wife being my greatest strength and my children’s motivation.”

“Prashanth was concerned about my health and well-being, while I was concerned about my role Adheera”, Sanjay conveyed.

Sanjay Dutt revealed that director Prashanth Neel was extremely concerned about his health and insisted on using a body double for certain scenes in ‘K.G.F: Chapter 2’. However, Sanjay Dutt chose to do them himself and had everyone spellbound by his sheer determination.

What’s more inspiring is that, in addition to being Sanjay’s first film after battling cancer, it was also one with a lot of action, which he is said to have pulled off like a pro.

Releasing nationwide on April 14, in Kannada, Telugu, Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam, ‘K.G.F.: Chapter 2’ is written and directed by Prashanth Neel, one of the most sought-after directors.

Produced by Vijay Kiragandur, under the Hombale Films banner, ‘KGF 2’ is the second instalment from the ‘KGF’ franchise which was first released in 2018.

Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar’s Excel Entertainment and AA Films are presenting the film in north Indian markets.

Yash apology at ‘KGF: Chapter 2’ press event wins respect

0

With south India’s next biggie ‘KGF: Chapter 2’ marching towards its April 14 release, the makers and star are literally racing against the clock to publicise the magnum opus.

Arriving late for a media interaction, Yash, who plays Rocky Bhaay in the movie, had to face the ire of a journalist at the event on Monday.

Yash did not hesitate to apologise, and convinced the journalist that he had not been aware of the timings, but was simply following the team’s schedule.

“I know the value of time. So, please accept my sorry, as I was not aware of the exact timings you people were called here for an interactive session”, Yash said.

Elaborating further, Yash explained that they have been travelling by private jet, which requires permission with respect to the weather conditions, thus causing a mix-up in their schedules. Yash’s humility in this particular situation has drawn much positivity for him among the folks.

Earlier during the promotions of Sukumar’s directorial ‘Pushpa’, Allu Arjun faced the same situation, as he was juggling between cities for the movie’s publicity. Allu Arjun had quoted a similar reason, when a journalist posed a question on his punctuality in Bengaluru.

‘KGF: Chapter 2’ is gearing up for its worldwide release on April 14. Helmed by Prashanth Neel, the ‘KGF’ franchise is one of the most-hyped productions of the Kannada film industry.

Shahid Kapoor’s Jersey faces the heat from KGF

0

KGF: Chapter 2 is gearing up for a record release and the pre-release sales are exceptional from North to South. Shahid Kapoor starrer Jersey is hitting the screens on the same day. Shahid Kapoor is pretty confident on the film and the team of Jersey waited for a theatrical release though Netflix offered a bomb for a direct OTT release. The advance bookings for Jersey are quite poor and it is clear that KGF: Chapter 2 will dominate the box-office. The makers of Jersey decided to push the release date considering the low ticket sales for the film.

Jersey will now hit the screens on April 22nd all over. The film is the remake of Telugu film Jersey and is directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri. Mrunal Thakur and Pankaj Kapoor played other important roles in this sports drama. The stage is all set for KGF: Chapter 2 in all the languages. Vijay’s Beast is the other biggie heading for release this week.
