Bollywood Bloopers ... 1

When Prianka Chopra was asked about a living person who she admired the most at the Miss World 2000 finale, she replied, "There are a lot of people I admire, but one of the most admirable people is Mother Teresa, who has been so compassionate, considerate and kind."
It was very impressive answer but Mother Teresa wasn't alive by then. She still won the contest, so what does it say about these Beauty contests and other participants in that year's contest.

Producer: Riteish Deshmukh, Uttung Hitendra Thakur
Director: Ravi Jadhav
Music Director: Vishal-Shekhar
Cinematographer: Mahesh Limaye

Balak Palak is Ravi Jadhav's third movie after successful movies Natrang and Balgandharv. So I was eager to watch his next movie. And then the subject movie is very intriguing. It pulled me to the theatre and I had to watch this movie.
Although protagonists of the movie are all the kids mainly, it is not a kid’s movie. Movie talks about very important issue of sex education for kids which is still a taboo for many parents. It shows how If it is not addressed at the right time and with right approach, it could lead kids to wrong doors for answers.
I will highly recommend this movie to everyone not only for Marathi audience but also to non Marathi speaking people. One thing for sure this movie will make many of us nostalgic. All of us gone through this phase and we have a story tell, secret to hide. So BP will take you back to those days.
Movie has amazing content, good story, god screenplay. Movie is funny but it is not a mad comedy. It never sidetracks from the core message the movie wants to convey. Ravi Jadhav proves ones again he is one of the best directors in India. I can’t wait to see his next movie. As for actors, they all gave amazing performance. Not only seasoned actor like Kishor Kadam but even all the young actors did brilliant job. Movie was also a good visual experience, thanks to good work by Mahesh Limaye. Music by Vishal-Shekhar was refreshing. It distinctly sound different from the music we here in Marathi movies. I don’t know what part Ritesh Deshmukh played in making this movie but it was good start for him in Marathi Film industry.
If I have to rate this movie, I will give it 10 out of 10.

Anand(1970)- (Hindi)
Director: Hrishkesh Mukherjee
Producer: N.C. Sippy
Starring: Rajesh Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan
Music by Salil Choudhary
Reasons to watch this movie before you die,
·         You can live life two ways either keep cribbing and complaining about what you don’t have and how unlucky you are or utilize whatever you have and enjoy the life to the fullest. Anand is a story of such a man whose days are numbered due to deadly cancer. But rather than crying over it he chose to fully utilized and enjoy every moment of his remaining life. He spread joy, pure Anand till his last breath.
·         This is Late Rajesh Khanna’s best acting performance. Rajesh Khanna was first Superstar of Bollywood. When he did this movie he was at pinnacle of his career.
·         It was also one of the best performances of Amitabh Bachchan. Amitabh was next superstar after Rajesh Khanna, who ruled Hindi film industry for decades. But when he did this movie he was just a starting off his career. He played supporting kind of second lead role in the movie but made his presence felt with his performance.
·         Hrishikesh Mukherjee is one of my favorite directors. I would say each and every movie of Hrishikesh Mukharjee is a must watch. He was legend in Bollywood whose contribution to the industry was immense.
·         And lastly but not least at all, watch this movie for the soulful and timeless music by Salil Chaudhary. Be it,
‘Zindagi kaisi hai paheli’, ‘Maine tere liye hi’ or ‘Kahin door jab din dhal jayen’
Melody of the songs, the lyrics and rendition of the song will touch your heart.
