Anil Kapoor’s Best

Posted by Kokolicious on 26th February 2009


Suddenly, he’s become India’s most prominent international star.

Anil Kapoor is one of Indian cinema’s most consistent actors of all time, and after his turn in Danny Boyle’s world-conquering Slumdog Millionaire, he is the one ‘Bollywood star’ the West is most exposed to.

And while the world is just discovering Kapoor’s charms, we’ve long been beneficiaries of the man’s talent. He’s delivered his best even in the unlikeliest of cinema, and can always be counted on to make the screen light up with that goofy grin.

Here then, for our friends in the West and for all of us to celebrate one of our best leading men, is a list of his ten finest films. It is a contentious list, of course, but we go with chronological order.

Woh Saat Din (1983)

Anil Kapoor, he of the fiddle-worthy pyjama drawstrings, carries a harmonium with his name painted on the side: Prem Pratap, Patialawale. The struggling singer enters the film singing Tere mere beech mein from Ek Duje Ke Liye, proceeding to extoll the virtues of Laxmikant-Pyarelal’s composition, his hardcore Punjabi accent belying his articulate understanding of music. As he drags along a hapless young sidekick and grapples with finding a bachelor’s accomodation in Bombay, we see an idealistic young musician given to prayer and scruples, and it is this extreme naivete that is impossible to not be charmed by. This was where we first truly saw the actor’s iconic grin, and in a way, Hindi cinema would never be the same.

Mashaal (1984)

For a fledgling performer with just a few films to his name, a full-length role opposite screen legend Dilip Kumar would be reward enough. Yet Kapoor grabbed the opportunity this Yash Chopra film offered with gusto, managing to consummately outshine the screen veteran even if armed with a clear supporting role. Kapoor’s Raja was a street tough, irascible and hard as nails, yet thanks to the charismatic way the actor played him, it was tough not to like him even before he straightened up to fly right.

Mr India (1987)

In my book, the single finest scene of Kapoor’s entire career comes in this Shekhar Kapur masterpiece when he, playing the scruffy Arun Bhaiyya, finally slips on the invisibility bracelet. Even as little Jugal yelps around in fear, it is Kapoor’s incredulous exuberance that drips off the screen as he revels in the impossible coming true. The boy is thrilled, but it is Kapoor’s unadulterated glee that makes this scene one of the most magical moments in our cinema — and the rest of the film isn’t far behind at all. Incredible stuff.

Tezaab (1988)

In one of his career’s landmark performances — and the one that won him is first Best Actor trophy at the Filmfare Awards — Kapoor plays Mahesh, a jingoistic newly-enrolled Navy man. His love for Mohini (Madhuri Dixit, breaking through herself with this N Chandra film) leads Mahesh to arrest and exile from the city of Bombay. He does return, but as Munna, a cold-blooded gangster with vengeance bloodying his eyes. A bravura performance, dripping with screen presence and versatility as Anil goes from utterly likable to undeniably frightening — and every shade in between.

Ram Lakhan (1989)

Dhin a dhin ta.

This Subhash Ghai romp wasn’t Kapoor’s film at all — he played kid brother to Jackie Shroff and took second place in the film’s credits — but, with typical scenestealing, he made it entirely his own. Ram Lakhan is the perfect example of the cheesy Bollywood revenge saga, with every element from a widowed mother (and fights over her husband’s ashes) to a bizarre villain named Sir John to a central conflict between two brothers, one a criminal, one a crime fighter. And yet the only reason this film works — and it absolutely does — is because of the infectious earnestness Kapoor thrusts into the Lakhan role. It is a role — crook, flirt, misled youth — we’ve seen a million times before and since, but Kapoor’s inimitable panache makes sure we remember that Lakhan Is Still His Name.

Parinda (1989)

To this day the finest underworld film in Hindi cinema — one that gangsters in Mumbai borrowed slang from instead of the other way around — Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s Parinda was also India’s official entry to the 1989 Oscars. Kapoor played Shroff’s younger brother yet again, and the way he emerged with more plaudits this time around showed that this was an actor not bound by trifles like screentime. He was just hungry to do better. Kapoor plays a young man sheltered from crime by his tough sibling, but when he sees his best friend killed he turns to those rivalling his brother’s gang. In drama later echoed in films like The Departed, Kapoor plays off one gang against the other and takes the film intensely forward until we are shocked by the gruesome finale. A pitch-perfect performance from everyone on board.

Lamhe (1991)

In Yash Chopra’s most progressive film — so progressive it was considered scandalous and flopped miserably despite being one of the director’s finest works — Anil Kapoor shaved off his ‘stache. He also left all the outrageousness at the door — a staple of that period’s cinema — as he played Viren, a Rajasthani prince, showing masterful restraint and tremendous subtlety as he went from falling in love with Sridevi to trying to absorb her loss to falling in love with her yet again. The plot was complex and Kapoor — still called Kunwarjee by several fans — did the job brilliantly, reining himself in throughout the film and showing his pent up angst completely in only a couple of outbursts.

1942 A Love Story (1994)

A lovingly crafted period film, Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s wonderfully mounted production featured Kapoor as the wealthy Naren Singh who falls for Manisha Koirala’s Rajjo. And while star-crossed lovers from different strata of society weren’t new to Hindi cinema at all, Chopra’s backdrop featured Indians as subservient to the British or rallying against them, and this further tore the young romantics asunder. Kapoor falls in love with wide-eyed wonderment, and is utterly charming till he reached the central conflict, after which his role takes on an unexpected intensity. Gripping stuff.

Pukar (2000)

It was Raj Kumar Santoshi’s Pukar that got Kapoor a Best Actor National Award, and while the film has its share of flaws, Kapoor rises above them to deliver an outstanding acting job. Playing wronged Major Jaidev Rajvansh, Kapoor captures beautifully the anguish of a noble man spurned by his peers. He is stripped off his uniform and dismissed from the army, and elderly citizens spit on his ‘traitor’ status. And Kapoor just seethes from the inside, seethes with anger and hurt and betrayal and shame. Wow.

My Wife’s Murder (2005)

And we end with an indie, with a neatly made taut thriller by first-time director Jijy Philip, which shows just how marvellously solid Kapoor’s remained over the years. In My Wife’s Murder, he plays perpetually beleaguered video editor Ravi Patwardhan, who happens to — without fuss, entirely by accident — kill his nagging wife. So real does Kapoor make the situation that he forces us to relate to it, to the way the similar could concievably happen to either of us, and the wonderful little film rests on this magnificent portrayal of a constantly persecuted man.

It’s hard taking a filmography showing off such yeoman service to cinema and keeping the list down to 10. Virasat, Meri Jung, Chameli Ki Shaadi, Eeshwar, Taal and Beta were a few films which almost made the cut, but many more spring immediately to mind.

Most Powerful Entertainers of Bollywood

Posted by Kokolicious on 20th February 2009


It was an evening of razzle dazzle, gorgeous women and awards galore as 10 of Bollywood’s popular personalities bagged the first FICCI-IIFA Awards as ‘most powerful entertainers of the decade’. A touch of Hollywood came in the form of Danny Glover (Predator, Saw 5), who was awarded the Lifetime Achievement award.

The awardees include Yash Chopra, Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar, Hrithik Roshan, Shah Rukh Khan and Kareena Kapoor.

Shilpa Shetty, Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Priety Zinta seemed rather uncomfortable as they sat next to each other. Notice the almost identical poses and expressions.

Bachchan, who is also the brand ambassador of IIFA, said that he had completed 40 years in Bollywood on February 15, in his acceptance speech. ‘Many changes have come in this period. We are now treated as professionals with matching world standards and people from ‘good’ families don’t hesitate to join acting as a profession,’ he added.

Though Amitabh and a few leading ladies adequately represented Bollywood, we still missed the presence of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar, Hrithik Roshan and of course, Shah Rukh Khan, who has been advised rest after his recent surgery.

Priyanka Chopra seems to be attracting a lot of attention these days. The actress, who is looking hotter, mingled with Danny Glover while Yash Chopra and Kareena looked on.

Deepika Padukone seemed lost without Ranbir Kapoor by her side.

Amitabh later recounted the awards in his blog mentioning the bit where Danny Glover referred to Bachchan as the greatest actor in the world. An embarrassed Bachchan wrote that if there was space beneath his chair, he would have disappeared in there.

How Bollywood Heroes woo their reel life sweethearts

Posted by Kokolicious on 14th February 2009


Come Feb 14 (Valentine’s Day) and cupid will be busy all day bringing together lovers across the world. Check out what extent Bollywood’s leading men went to woo their reel-life sweethearts in some of the recent flicks.

Aamir Khan in Ghajini

Aamir Khan played the corporate head honcho of a cellular company who travels in luxury cars with a sleuth of bodyguards in Ghajini. However, when he falls in love with a simple middle class girl played by Asin (who mistakes him to be a struggling actor), he doesn’t feel like revealing his true identity for the fear of losing her. So you have the CEO of a company travelling in auto-rickshaws, chomping on road-site watermelon and even drinking tea from the saucer all to win over his lady love. Cho Chweet!!!

Shah Rukh Khan in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi

Shah Rukh Khan got out of his comfort zone and played the lovable Surinder Sahni in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. However, when he realizes that Suri is too boring for his wife to fall in love with, he undergoes a complete metamorphosis and becomes the ‘cool and macho’ Raj. Much to his discomfort, he shaves off his moustache, gels / spikes his hair, sports cool glares, talks a funky accent, rides a bike and even gulps Pani-Puri by the dozen all to impress the love of his life.

Emraan Hashmi in Jannat

Emraan Hashmi has always had the image of a naughty boy on screen. Even in Vishesh Flims’ Jannat, Emraan displayed this side to perfection. Emraan who plays an ambitious lower middle class guy in the film goes all out to impress the girl whom he falls in love with at first sight. Not many of us would have the guts to break the glass of a showroom and pick up a necklace for our loved one but Emraan does that. He doesn’t mind being arrested for this deed and doesn’t repent his act one bit. What’s more? To impress his girl he even bets money on a cricket match and within no time buys her a luxury car. Indeed this one’s a completely mad lover boy.

Imran Khan in Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na

Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na brought about a feeling of nostalgia in many of us. After all, we all have had our share of crushes and heartbreaks. In the film, Imran and Genelia start of being best friends and don’t realize till the very end that they have feelings for each other. But when they do, there is no stopping the lover boy. Imran breaks out of the lock-up, rides a horse (yes you read it right, a horse) on a curfew night and rushes to the airport to stop the love of his life from going away. Despite breaking a dozen odd security barricades, Imran finally manages to stop his love and even proposes to her right in the middle of the airport by breaking into a song ‘Tera Mujhse He Pehle Ka Naata Koi…’. How romantic!!!


Ranbir Kapoor in Bachna Ae Haseeno

Ranbir’s character in Bachna Ae Haseeno is a born flirt, a complete Casanova. Dumping girls after giving them false promises is nothing new to him but after his own love dumps him, he realizes his folly and what he does next is quite unheard of for a Hindi film hero. Ranbir apologizes to the girls whom he had promised to love. He re-unites his ex-flame with her husband when he learns that the couple is having a tough time due to his deeds, and then to get the forgiveness of his second girlfriend, he is ready to even be her secretary for errand jobs. Wonder how many of us would be ready to carry bags, serve breakfast, clean the tables, and even dance at the drop of a hat for the person we love?

Hrithik Roshan in Jodhaa Akbar

Unlike his other lover boy roles, Hrithik plays the stern emperor Akbar in this period flick. But behind this stern and aggressive ruler lies a man with a heart of gold. How else do you explain the fact that Hrithik is ready to fulfill his wife’s two demanding wishes? To keep his love Jodhaa Bai (Ash) happy, Hrithik not only allows her to build a temple but even does not force her to change her religion. In a subtle way, Hrithik surely knows how to win the love of his loved one.

Sonu Sood in Ek Vivaah Aisa Bhi

Rajshris are always known to make opulent family dramas with song, dance, romance, marriage etc. Their latest venture Ek Vivaah Aisa Bhi was no different. Sonu Sood and Eesha Koppikhar play love birds in this flick and the two are all set to marry when Eesha’s father dies suddenly. Eesha then becomes ‘the son of the home’ and decides that she will not marry till she first helps her younger siblings settle down in life. Sonu Sood does something which not many of today’s ‘Majnus’ and ‘Romeos’ would do. While many of us get bugged even if our loved one is delayed by a few minutes, Sonu waits 12 long years patiently for the love of his life without complaining one bit. Phew!!! Quite a feat this is!

Hurman Baweja in Love Story 2050

This one probably takes the cake. When his reel-life sweetheart (Priyanka Chopra) dies in a road accident, Hurman Baweja at first is heartbroken and shattered. Then in a sudden turn of events, he realizes that his love is not dead but is just transported to another era. It’s then that Hurman enters the time machine and takes a ride to the future to get back the love of his life. Hurman truly should be crowned Aashiq No.1.

Bollywood’s Top 10 Cameo

Posted by Kokolicious on 11th February 2009


Sometimes less is more.

When portrayed effectively, a well-written role, despite its brief screen time, has the potential to make a greater impact than a lengthier leading part. That’s the magic of a nicely-done cameo. Bollywood understands its effect only too well. And so we have an array of film stars lending in their two cents to a project. The latest being Shah Rukh Khan. If producing Billu wasn’t stressful enough [the film ran in trouble because of its earlier title Billu Barber), the actor also pitches in to perform a larger-than-life appearance as a reigning superstar. Considering he plays the latter 24/7, there is hardly any reason to worry. This is certainly not the actor’s first attempt at a hyped cameo. Previously too, Khan dabbled in the category with films like Saathiya and Shakti: The Power. Others like erstwhile 007-agent Pierce Brosnan and Bollywood’s resident dulhan Kajol, too, are due to make a short ‘n’ sweet appearance in Leena Yadav’s Teen Patti and Rajkumar Hirani’s 3 Idiots, respectively.

Here’s list of Hindi cinema’s Top Ten Cameos:

10. Hrithik Roshan, Luck By Chance

Another take on Bollywood. Another superstar clone. But it’s definitely not just another performance from Hrithik Roshan. In Zoya Akhtar’s masterful take on tinsel town and its complex workings, Hrithik plays the semi-megalomaniac with faultless intricacy. Essentially a story of two struggles, Hrithik’s character forms brief albeit integral sub-text to just the same. While there is continuous effort from the screen-writer [Zoya again] to make this megastar a mix of fascinating, contradictory and personal, what makes it truly work is just how unpredictably Hrithik plays it.

9. Akshay Kumar, Om Shanti Om

If there was an award for the Most Rocking Cameos of all times, Akshay Kumar would win hands down. King Kumar pretty much employs all of him in a brief but action-packed gig while parodying his innumerable Khiladi avatars to side-splitting effect for Farah Khan’s spoof unlimited, Om Shanti Om.

8. Abhishek Bachchan, Salaam Namaste

Define pleasant surprise. Abhishek Bachchan in Salaam Namaste. In this Melbourne-themed rip off of Nine Months, Bachchan Jr shows up right in the chaotic climax to add his brand of uninhibited confusion. The actor’s bumbling, forgetful, faint-hearted gynaecologist avatar is obviously inspired Robin Williams from the original. And yet, AB’s baby pays the ultimate tribute in the medley of laughter that follows.

7. Salman Khan, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

He’s done an entire slide show-worth of cameos. But Salman Khan’s cool dude act in Karan Johar’s mush-filled debut continues to be an eternal favourite. During the fleeting duration of his character’s graph, Khan creates an immensely likeable and humane Aman. To think it’s no more than an extended cameo, yet not only does he walk away with audience’s sympathy but is rewarded with a Best Supporting Actor Filmfare trophy for the same.

6. Juhi Chawla, Andaz Apna Apna

‘Haila, Juhi Chawla!’ That’s Aamir Khan’s spontaneous (and understandable) reaction on spotting actress Juhi Chawla caught in a car breakdown crisis. As expected the goofy AK comes to her rescue and cooks up a Mills & Boon brand of romance in his imagination. Known for her effortless comic timing and cherubic chirpiness, Juhi infuses the part with sufficient Juhisms to make it instantly adorable. And while she was equally adept in her other cameos in films like Chandni and Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa, it’s her make-believe coyness and playing-along attitude that wears an extra edge.

5. Madhuri Dixit, Dharavi

There’s something about Madhuri Dixit. While some want to be her, others cannot stop dreaming about her. Bring respite to one such despondent soul is part of the deal in Sudhir Mishra’s realistic yarn, Dharavi. Here, Om Puri’s cabbie Rajkaran plays one of MD’s biggest fans. And as part of his fantasy, Madhuri is accessible and enchanting at once. Draped in a red chiffon sari, the actress puts her million-dollar smile to good use, lending Puri’s reverie a sense of escapism from the miserable going-ons of his true existence. True to her stature in his life, she’s every bit of the goddess he hopes her to be. Trust Madhuri to play someone else’s perception of her to perfection.

4. Amrish Puri, Mandi

Sometime in the latter second half of Shyam Benegal’s imaginative slice of life, Amrish Puri shows up unexpectedly, keeping up with his equally enigmatic character of a prophetic Baba. There’s much quirkiness in his approach and madness to his delivery, which is both amusing and intense at once. Not everyone could master this blend as he could. Although in the recent Welcome to Sajjanpur, Benegal tries to create a similar character along the lines of Puri’s with Dayashankar Pandey doing the honours. The Lagaan man does well but does not come close to the original.

3. Shashi Kapoor, Silsila

Previously, a short appearance warranted a short life on screen. Take Yash Chopra’s still-talked about Silsila for instance. After romancing the demure Jaya Bachchan in his inimitable, boisterous style and indulging in some high-strung camaraderie with best buddy Amitabh Bachchan, which means bathing under the same shower; Shashi Kapoor — an air-force pilot, dies in a tragic crash. As much we miss the charismatic actor and his amorous overtures, his exit brings about the adulterous twist in the plot.

2. Rajesh Khanna, Andaaz

There’s much fun, laughter and carefree joie de vivre to be found in Rajesh Khanna’s ultra-stylish appearance — printed scarfs, berry-coloured knitted vests, belted jackets, matinee idol sunglasses et al. Not only does Ramesh Sippy’s directorial debut give him a chance to sing one of his signature Zindagi-themed yodel-yoos on the ever-ominous motorcycle but also remind us why he earned the epithet of King of Romance in the first place.

1. Dharmendra, Guddi

Playing oneself can be rather pleasant when you are Dharmendra. As the accommodating, genial and gallant superstar the actor is perfectly tailor-made for the part in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s feel-good yet meaningful Guddi. Even as he charmingly endures the besotted glances of his biggest fan, played by Jaya Bachchan [then Bhaduri], there’s much profundity and earnestness to be found when he talks about his rock-solid village roots or the bittersweet reality engulfing the glamour-filled superficiality of show-business.
