Ishkq in Paris
The Times of India - over 5 years
Wow! Preity Zinta is back! One of the recent Hindi films had the lead lady mimic Preity Zinta which is when I had to come and look up her next film. She certainly couldn’t already be in the phase where there would be spoofs and tributes to her, right? After The Last Lear and Videsh it seemed like Preity Zinta had long moved on from romance. So, it was rather disappointing to find it was a Ishkq in Paris, which looks like your typical love story set in a foreign city. Only..

Anant Goenka: The Curse of the Indian Premier League -- And the Lesson It Brings
Huffington Post - over 5 years
While I don't believe in curses and the like, I couldn't resist the title. The sale of the Deccan Chargers by ailing media conglomerate Deccan Chronicle to Mumbai-based real estate company Kamala Landmarc, and the non-bailable arrest warrant issued to the Royal Challenger's team owner Vijay Mallya by the Hyderabad court today, brings to light the fact that almost every team owner and personality associated with the Indian Premier League (IPL) are in some kind of trouble. Delhi's GMR is struggling with tax-avoidance issues and under the scanner of the CAG, Mumbai's Reliance Industries has been the most under-performing stock on the Sensex over five years (that's not as grave as the others, but within Reliance it's unheard of), Sahara -- which has flourished, unquestioned, despite its dubious sources of funding for over 20 years has been ordered to return Rs. 24,000 crores to its investors, not a single of Rajastan Royal's owner Raj Kundra's new businesses of the past ...

Ishkq In Paris
Bollywood Hungama - over 5 years
EXPECTATIONS There are good expectations from the music of Ishkq In Paris. After all, director Prem Raj had ensured some good melodies in his debut flick Main Aurr Mrs. Khanna ('Don't Say Alvida' stays on to be one of the best melodies created by Sajid-Wajid) and with the composer duo returning with Ishkq In Paris, one expects a lilting outing. Meanwhile, multiple lyricists come together to lend words for five songs in the album. MUSIC Album gets a good start with 'It's All About Tonight'. What makes this club song special are the portions in French (written by Sophie Choudry) which are seductive to the core and go down perfectly with the Paris setting of the film. Soon Sunidhi Chauhan comes to the fore and she gets just the right attitude in place to sing for Preity Zinta on whom the song is picturised. There is a good amalgamation of rhythm and melody here and the simplistic tune only makes this Priya Panchal written song all the more catchy. Rahul Vaidya is heard only briefl...

Hail the woman power in Bollywood
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 5 years
Femme fatales are here to change your notion about Bollywood being male dominated. In a departure from the norms, at least four big Bollywood movies have taken the bold step to not just lead with a woman as the central character but also highlight them on the publicity posters. While Bipasha Basu’s latest release Raaz 3 that also stars Emraan Hashmi did a good opening this Friday, all eyes are now on Kareena Kapoor’s Heroine releasing on September 21. Preity Zinta’s Ishkq In Paris on October 5 and Rani Mukerji’s Aiyaa on October 12 follow. Trade pundits see this as a positive trend. “The audience has become intelligent as now they don’t watch a film just for the hero. Instead, they swear by the content,” says Taran Adarsh, trade analyst, according to the Hindustan Times. Vidya Balan seems to have set the ball rolling with solo hits such as No One Killed Jessica, Kahaani and her national award winning The Dirty Picture. “Indeed Vidya set this tr...

Big B admires Preity's guts, drive
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 5 years
MUMBAI: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is all praises for Preity Zinta’s frankness and her guts to survive in a “cruel” world without any help. “I have always admired Preity for her drive and guts in a world that can be most cruel to a single girl. But just look at the way she has managed her career, all alone, without any traditional assistance from the industry,” Amitabh wrote on his blog bigb.bigadda.com. “She is frank and painfully honest and outspoken to the ‘o’, and that is an admirable quality for a girl that had to face some rather tragic and unfortunate events very early in her life.” “She put her hand into business, knew nothing about it, but was determined to educate herself. So she went across to US for a short course in business management at a prestigious college (Harvard Business School) and came back wiser, educated and a lot more confident and not for a moment keeping too far away from her profession of choice – films!” he added. ...
