The World Before Her (2014) - Review

The World Before Her is one of the most thought-provoking films in the recent times - one that shocks, saddens, amazes and leaves you with more questions than answers. It tucks in, within a story, little stories of dreams, despair, courage and hope. It opens your eyes to a world you may not have seen or entirely known before. And yet, presents it all in a non-judgmental light. The director feeds your mind with questions and lets you settle for an answer without imposing or influencing.

Top 5 Bollywood Classics

This one's a guest post from the archives from my dear friend, Beth of BethLovesBollywood.

Mtoher India Balcony Row

A classic film for me is one that has stood up through the passage of time, I'd say at least 20 years (long enough for an entirely different generation to encounter it as teens or adults), that still makes an impact in some way: the craft of film-making, aesthetics, story, characters, performances, ideas it addresses, questions it raises, commentary it offers, description or evocation of a particular time/place, etc.

Here are my top 5 picks:

Pardes (1997)

Pardes movie review Balcony Row

It's hard to criticize your old favorites, you've so loved watching and re-watching as kids. Besides ringing in the changed thought process, they make you realize how old you've gotten in the process :)

I remember watching Pardes (starring Shahrukh Khan, Mahima Chaudhary, Apoorv Agnihotri) in class seven during my winter break on the theatre (like most other films). As I rewatch it today, I'm still trying to figure what worked for the film. [This is not my second viewing. I've seen it countless times between then and now].

My mother was expecting me when Sholay released: Abhishek Bachchan

All is well Rishi Kapoor Abhishek Bachchan interview
On the eve of their upcoming release All is Well, the entire cast (Rishi Kapoor, Abhishek Bachchan, Supriya Pathak, Asin Thottumkal) along with the director (Umesh Shukla of OMG fame) was in town to promote the film.

We caught up with them to talk about the film, what makes it worth a watch, Abhishek's equation with his father, 40 years of Sholay and more!
