The year 2018 has been one of the most surprising ones in recent Bollywood memory, for it has been one where content ruled above all other elements in films. This year in particular, movies with unique content found solidification in Bollywood. While big-budget films (those with a lot of expectations associated) tanked at the box office, smaller films with lower budget and lesser known faces triumphed massively. One of the most shocking things about this year was that films with massive stars such as Salman Khan and Aamir Khan underperformed against the hopes and excitement of their fans, while lesser known faces like Rajkummar Rao, Vicky Kaushal and Ayushmann Khurrana emerged successful and catapulted these actors towards stardom.Additionally, the year also worked … [Read more...] about The year of the underdog: 8 movies that made 2018 a game changer for Bollywood

THE #MeToo movement may finally be gaining a foothold in India, as a prominent former actress and Miss Universe finalist speaks out against a veteran actor. Tanushree Dutta claims Bollywood heavyweight Nana Patekar behaved inappropriately towards her on a film set in 2008 by demanded intimate dance steps in a routine for the film Horn OK Please. This was despite her saying she was uncomfortable. Patekar denies the allegations, and has threatened legal action. Dutta left Bollywood after making the allegations, and said she turned down jobs because she felt "broken" and "humiliated".

On the one hand, some of those who have reacted should have just kept quiet. For instance, 66- year-old Shakti Kapoor, who himself has a dubious reputation, thought it was appropriate to joke about the matter. #WATCH:I don't know anything about this case.

The trailer for Batti Gul Meter Chalu, scheduled for release on September 21st, was recently released to acclaim. The film, helmed by the Toilet: Ek Prem Katha director Shree Narayan Singh, stars Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor alongside Divyendu Sharma and Yami Gautam. The film’s theme is truly commendable, for this is perhaps the first Bollywood film dealing with the subject of electricity theft. The film is essentially an issue-based commentary on the subject of power theft and skyrocketing electricity bills in the mofussil areas of India.Shahid is a cheerful and carefree advocate, but his life changes completely when his friend (Sharma) commits suicide under the pressure of paying a hefty amount of Rs1.5 lakh as his electricity bill.
