Suleman Razzaq talks ethics and learning from mistakes
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 4 years
KARACHI:  From assisting well-known cinematographers such as Nick Noland in memorable projects Jinnah and Immaculate Conception, to shooting the controversial film Bol, Salman Razzaq has come a long way. While his name is mentioned in the credits of almost every other well-constructed music video in Pakistan as ‘Salman’ Razzaq, the film students at the South Asian Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Television (SAAMPT) were left perplexed when he clarified: “My name is Suleman Razzaq Khan and I have been a part of the entertainment industry for almost 25 years.” After introducing himself, he spoke about his experiences and shared the ups and downs of his journey as a cinematographer. Speaking to attentive film students on Monday evening, Razzaq highlighted the importance of film education in Pakistan. “I entered the studio right after I completed my matriculation exams in the late ‘80s and have never looked back,” he said. “I wonder how diffe ...

Pakistani actress Mona Lizza in Murder 3
Bollywood Hungama - over 4 years
One has to give it to the Bhatts for having a hawk eye in spotting new talent. After featuring Mallika Sherawat and Jacqueline Fernandez in the Murder series, the Bhatts are now all set to introduce a brand new hottie in the third installment of the same. She is a Pakistani beauty who goes by the name Mona Lizza (whose screen name is Sara Loren). For those who are unaware, she is the same girl who made her 'official debut' in Pooja Bhatt's Kajra Re a couple of years ago. News reports have it that Mona was chosen because the Bhatts saw her potential to sizzle up the screen with her sex appeal and they are super confident that she would make the same impact as Mallika and Jacqueline did. There were certain reports in the media that Mona has replaced the film's original lead actress Aditi Rao Hydari. To which, Aditi's manager responded back stating that Aditi is very much the heroine of the film and that she is presently in South Africa shooting for the film. Mukesh Bhatt too rubbis ...

Racy Sunny Leone features in Ali Azmat’s song – so what?
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 4 years
KARACHI:  Ali Azmat is a true Pakistani rock star. Where his grooves and music never fail to impress us, his peculiar quirks and extreme-right political views simply add to his eccentric personality. But this time around, it’s not his political ideology that has brought him into the limelight – it’s the songs he has sung for the freshly released, racy B-town film, Jism 2. The new erotic thriller has proved to be popular at the Indian box office, raking in a staggering INR210 million on its opening weekend. The film falls under the Jism brand as a sequel to the movie released nine years ago, starring the steamy duo of Bipasha Basu and John Abraham. While some believe it is nothing more than erotica – with the new film starring Indian-Canadian adult film actor Sunny Leone in more than one ‘compromising’ position – others feel there is more to it than meets the eye. Either way, it has created quite a buzz in Bollywood, which is seeping over to Pakis ...

Jism - 2
Bollywood Hungama - over 4 years
Indian storytellers are now breaking out of conventional shackles, while avid moviegoers are stepping into cinemas to view stories rarely attempted before. JISM 2, an erotic thriller, is touted as the boldest film [in that segment] to hit the Hindi screen, but the question that crosses your mind is, does it boast of a captivating story as well? Do you carry the film and the characters in your heart once you exit the auditorium? Most importantly, do you reminisce about it? Does it have recall value? Or does one forget about it the moment the show concludes? Although JISM 2 is the second installment of the 2003 hit that starred Bipasha Basu and John Abraham, there's a huge disparity between the two films. JISM 2 is visually stunning, the aesthetics are just right, but the voyage of a woman from the lust bazaar who markets desire is far from perfect. The lackluster screenplay of JISM 2 is its biggest undoing! The star of the show is, without doubt, Sunny Leone. People are ...

CBFC refuses to certify Jism 2
Bollywood Hungama - over 4 years
When you are making a bold film like Jism 2 which marks the debut of adult star Sunny Leone, you are bound to have some issues with the Censor Board. The same happened with director of the film Pooja Bhatt when she showed the film to the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) yesterday evening. The CBFC saw Jism 2 and found the film too bold to even give an A certificate in its current form and asked Pooja Bhatt to dilute the love-making scenes by at least 50% and come back for a review. The CBFC felt that the love-making scenes featuring Sunny Leone were too long and couldn't be cleared even with an A certificate. There are apparently four such scenes in the film. Pooja, who is left with no choice, now plans to introduce close-ups wherever wide angles have been used in the scenes in question and then submit the film again to the CBFC. Watch Promo: Jism - 2

Jism - 2
Bollywood Hungama - over 4 years
EXPECTATIONS There are good expectations from the music of Jism 2. After all it has the name Bhatt attached to it and even though it isn't really a Mukesh Bhatt production (he is the one who is known to have the best ear for music in the family), the very fact that Mahesh Bhatt is associated with the film is a good enough reason to expect some soulful tracks. Moreover, Pooja Bhatt's Jism has boasted of some good songs as well (it's 'Awarapan Banjarapan' reverberates till date) while Paap too has boasted of some haunting tunes, all of which result in soaring expectations from Jism 2. Also, one waits to be surprised as well, what with absolute newcomers like Arko Pravo Mukherjee, Rushk (Pakistani band) and Abdul Baasith Saeed (from Maldives) composing a few songs and Mithoon also chipping in. The same team also contributes with the lyrics along with Munish Makhija and Unoosha. MUSIC It has been quite a while since K.K. was heard in a melodious outing that came with a promise of go ...

Sunny’s Twitter praises leave her in a mess!
Central Chronicle - over 4 years
Canadian porn star Sunny Leone, who is on the threshold of making her mainstream debut into Bollywood, has been on the receiving end of a considerable amount of flak lately. The actress, whose ‘Jism 2’ would help her introduce herself in the Hindi film industry, had recently been all praises for Mahesh Bhatt. And that did not go down well with the others! The adult film actress had tweeted about Mahesh Bhatt some time back, “Thank you Sir for everything & directing me in all my dialogue scenes. You made it easy 4 me to follow your vision!!” The tweet, however, ruffled up many feathers in the production team, including that of Bhatt Senior, and the latter responded with “’Jism 2’ is a Pooja Bhatt film in its absolute sense. It was born and fashioned by her passion. We all worked under her gaze.” Sunny’s comments were meant in good humour, and were directed at Mahesh Bhatt for helping her with dialogues in the film. Another tweet from an insider read, “How can you say this Sunny? ...
