AKIE KAUSHAL jodha akbar, JODHA AKBAR WRITTEN EPISODE OF 10-MARCH-2014, jodhaakbar, zee, zeetv No comments
Telecast Date: March 10, 2014Jodha wants even the servants of the 'Haram' to have some amount of freedom. Mahamanga is against it. She feels that servants are meant to be given orders to and should not have anykind of freedom. She goes to Akbar to inform him that Jodha is changing the laws of 'Haram'. Akbar goes to visit Jodha. But Jodha instead asks him to come along with her and visit certain parts of the kingdom. She shows him how people are forced to work in his Kingdom against their own will. She shows him how slavery in his kingdom has led to a child getting separated from his mother. Akbar promises to re-unite the child and his mother. Sujamal meanwhile takes shelter on a tree, just then he sees Abul Mali and Shareef planning a plot to kill Akbar. Sujamal does not recognise Shareef. Mahamanga informs Rukaiyaa about Jodha changing 'Haram's' laws and Akbar supporting her. Rukaiyaa gets jealous and angry. Jodha Akbar is a sixteenth century love story about a political marriage of convenience saga between a Mughal emperor, Akbar, and a Rajput princess, Jodhaa. But much more then that it's the marriage of contrasts.
Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke is all about celebrating adolescence depicting the lives of two teenage girls, Gunjan and Rachna. The teenage years mark the real beginning of a person's blossoming youth and the events that occur in one's life in this period leave permanent imprints affecting his/her personality. The teenage years are when one faces their first crushes, loves, despair of love, mistakes, joys of friendship, togetherness, heartbreaks, emotional turmoil, rebellious feelings etc. The show is full of hope, aspirations, wish, longing, desire and yearning. The story tries to encapsulate all these fine nuances of life beautifully and give the audience a taste of their growing up years. The idea is to enrich the lives of the viewers through an endearing content which will remind them of their carefree wonder years.

Biography: Ekta is the daughter of superstar Jeetendra and his wife Shobha. Her brother is film actor, Tusshar Kapoor. Ekta was born and brought up in Mumbai. She works as the Creative Head and Managing Director of Balaji Telefilms. Known as the Queen of Soap Operas in India, Ekta is remembered best for giving television entertainment the most cataclysmic turn ever. Her serials were aired on Sony, Star Plus and Zee. She began with unusual realistic serials like Koshish Ek Asha which starred Sandya Mridul. Currently her serials on air are Bade Acche Lagte Hai, Gumraah and Kyaa Hua Tera Vaada.
She decided to turn of Bollywood when she was at the peak of her career, winning awards every year for her daily soaps. In 2001, she released Kyoo Ki… Main Jhooth Nahi Bolta which starred Sushmita Sen and Govinda. In 2003 and 2004, she focused mainly on supernatural stories and thrillers like Krishna Cottage and Kucch Toh Hai. 2005 turned out to be a golden year for the lady when Kya Kool Hia Hum went on to be listed as one of the year’s biggest hits. For the next few years, she focused on television and her work in Bollywood was limited to co- producing films like EMI and Mission Istanbul. But 2010 and 2011 was pivotal for her career in Bollywood. She delivered the biggest and the most important films like ‘Love, Sex aur Dhoka’, ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbai’, ‘The Dirty Picture’, ‘Ragini MMS’ and the sequel of her earlier hit ‘Kya Kool Hai Hum’ named ‘Kya Super Kool Hai Hum’.
Ekta is a example of a woman for young creative heads and entrepreneurs. She single handedly has earned her stature in the industry, be it television or cinema. And keeping all criticisms about her work aside, she has given television a stature that no one else before her could.

Confirming the news, Shiney in a recent interview said, “Yes, I am a part of Welcome Back. I got a call from Anees sir’s casting director and he briefed me about my role. It’s a comedy film and I come in the second half of the film.”
The actor will start shooting in Dubai soon for the film. “This role is different and I have not played (such a role) earlier,” he added.
The first schedule of Welcome Back, which has an ensemble cast including Naseeruddin Shah, Dimple Kapadia, John Abraham, Shruti Hassan, Anil Kapoor,Nana Patekar and Paresh Rawal, has already been completed in Dubai.

I had not thought about it (the pressure) till the promotions started. But now there is a pressure because everyone is asking me this question,” she added.

Music: Meet Bros. Anjjan, Yo Yo Honey Singh, Chirantan Bhatt & Pranay Rijia
Lyrics: Kumaar, Ustad Bhagdarh Ali Khan & Manoj Yadav
Music Label: T-Series
Ragini MMS (2011) is known as a scare-fest, but its music was functional. Much has changed since by way of trends, and today, promotional songs as well as other lip-synch numbers are considered much more important from the commercial point of view. However, we have long stopped expecting great music for a film on the supernatural, which till Raaz (2002) was a foolproof combination recipe for a super-hit movie.
Let us start with the lead track, 'Baby Doll' (Meet Bros. Anjjan - who also composed it - with Kanika Kapoor). It is a nice song with an arresting hook for getting in certain audiences and music consumers, but not something that will stay on. For one, the lyrics (Kumaar) are in hardcore Punjabi and so the beats become paramount. With lyrics beyond ken for those who cannot fathom the language, the song will only remain alive till the promos and film last, unlike a 'Munni' or 'Chikni Chameli'.
We have long stopped hoping for a connection between the hook/mukhda and antara, because finding an ascending narrative graph in a song's words is so rare. And this is the basic definition of lyrics. Here, from the words that we can comprehend in the entire song, it's all about the girl calling herself a Baby doll main sone di /Yeh duniya hai pittal di (I am a golden girl when the world is just made of fake gold or brass!).
Having said that, the song's hook is infectious and the singing is energetic. The composition is as per demands and as we said, we do have a fly-by-night hit. As always, its remix version has nothing special about it other than the mandatory modification of beats.
Over to Yo-Yo Honey Singh, the composer-singer of the next track: 'Chaar Botal Vodka'. Here the issue is different. The lyrics (Ustad Bhagdarh Ali Khan) hover between an amusing account of a hangover and the crass objectification of a woman ('Sooji sooji aankhen meri / Phir bhi dekho / Ladkiyon ko kaise hain nihaare'). This is now an alarmingly recurrent trait in Yo Yo's very limited movie work (like the lines 'Kudiyon ka laga hai buffet / Chahe jo karlo choose' in the 'ABCD' track in Yaariyan) and the rapper should seriously junk it!
Once again, the rap-based hook is almost as interesting as the lead track, but isn't it really high time that we thought of entire songs that linger, not hooks?
The overdone genre of a Sufi-ana love song resurfaces here as 'Maine Khud Ko', with an oh-so-predictable musical structure and lyrics (Kumaar). The Mustafa Zahid version is much more soulful because the singer is obviously more experienced. However, we still liked the reprise by Kshitij Tarey, whose earnest attempt to excel is praiseworthy.
'Lori Of Death', sung by Arpita Chakraborti, emerges as a novel concept composed by Chirantan Bhatt, with lyrics by Manoj Yadav. A lullaby with a dark twist, it is the only fresh track in this score. The singer is efficient, but at the risk of sounding a nitpicker, we must state that a true-blue and seasoned playback singer would have raised this niche song to the next level. Casting a voice has probably become even more important than casting an actor, since music itself is facing inimical challenges of all kinds.
This is a score that will work for a while. The rating is for the score's commercial prospects. Let's not expect anything lasting or substantial here.
'Baby Doll', 'Lori Of Death'
