‘More’ Of The Same

The good news is that thanks to a late surge by the rain gods in the last couple of weeks – a period when typically the monsoon starts receding – India shall experience what is classified as ‘normal’ rainfall this

Seven Up!

There is something mystical about the number 7. The digit figures prominently in most religious texts and practices – the Old Testament tells us the world was created in seven days; Hindus take seven rounds of the holy fire while

Message Delivered

There is much to marvel at and appreciate in this week’s release, Pink – an intelligent and well-crafted screenplay that is deftly and assuredly brought to life by the director; and every department, whether cinematography, editing, background score or art

United, To Vilify

Regular readers (if any!) of this page will hopefully attest that at every possible opportunity, we try to convey a positive message and project an optimistic outlook in our editorials. After all, as a trade journal whose target audience is

The Sun Always Rises

Three years ago, while working on the centerpiece of our 4th anniversary issue, we visited the offices of the leading film studios and production houses in the country to interact with the teams there. The objective was to get an

Devil’s Alternative

If birds of a feather flock together, why do opposites attract? If more is indeed merrier, why is three a crowd? If you should never put off till tomorrow what you can do today, why should you cross the bridge

Occasion-ally Speaking

Festivals and public holidays are usually a time for families and communities to come together for shared celebrations or commemorations. In the film business, however, marquee holidays have recently become the catalyst for some pretty heavy-duty clashes of high-profile films

The Size Of The Prize

With the success ratio of films in our trade being as abysmal as it is, it is not surprising that producing and releasing films is often compared to going to the casino – you know the odds are stacked massively

GST, Yes… Galling Sin Tax, No

Late on Wednesday (August 3, 2016), the Rajya Sabha finally passed the Constitutional (One Hundred and Twenty-Second Amendment) Bill 2014, thereby successfully overcoming the most formidable obstacle remaining in ushering in what has been heralded as the most significant tax

Hear Today, Else Gone Tomorrow

The week that went by saw the curtain come down on email, chat and search pioneer Yahoo!, or at the very least, its existence as an independent company, now that Verizon has bought it out. For many of us of

Piracy Posers

With a sickening frequency that seems to have inured us into believing that it is virtually inevitable, unreleased films are being made available for illicit and free consumption on pirate websites and bootlegged DVDs and memory cards. In the last

Wrestle Mania

We head to press celebrating the astounding first week collections of Sultan. In this fickle, unforgiving and usually heartbreaking business that we are a part of, there are few things as bankable as a Salman Khan release on Eid –

Troll Tax

Franklin D Roosevelt is widely regarded as one of the greatest-ever Presidents of the United States, having led the country out of the Great Depression of the early 1930s as also to victory over Nazi Germany and its allies in

A Lacklustre First Half

With half the year behind us, now is as good a time as any to take stock of how 2016 is shaping up at the box office. Subjectively speaking, the general sense one gets is that of a lacklustre year

Spoilt For Choice

If you are planning on going to the movies this week – and we hope you are! – you certainly have plenty of options to choose from. This week saw as many as 29 new films hit the theatres. Yes,

Running To Stand Still

A persistent trend that we have periodically revisited on these pages is that of the increasing competition Hindi films face at the box office from Hollywood imports. If 2015 saw Furious 7 make history as the first Hollywood film to

Fly In The Ointment

As we head to press, the fate of what shape we will see Udta Punjab in – if it were to stick to its scheduled release date of June 17 – hangs in the balance. On Monday, June 13, the

Fast & Furious Versus Slow & Steady

“This match has gone down to the wire”, “That’s racing to the fence like a tracer bullet”, “You can cut the tension with a knife”… with cricket being played virtually daily on our television screens, we have cricketing commentary clichés

Slouching Tiger, Galloping Dragon

In a recent edit note (Parallel Universe, issue dated April 23, 2016), we had presented the highlights of the Theatrical Market Statistics Report for 2015 released by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). As we had seen in that

Great Recommendations, But…
