Karma: We Saw Ranbir Kapoor’s Real Acting Debut and Boy, That Was Raw and Intense! Short Film Streaming Now on YouTube (Watch Video)

You all know that the heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor had made his Bollywood debut with the 2007 film Saawariya. Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali with whom Ranbir had worked as an assistant before, Saawariya also marked the acting debut of Sonam Kapoor. While the film tanked at the box office, Ranbir Kapoor’s charming performance was singled out for unanimous praise, However, even before Saawariya – three years before to be exact – Ranbir had made his acting debut in a short film, that has only came out to public spotlight recently. Is Ranbir Kapoor Making His Digital Debut With Netflix? This Latest Video Hints So.

Karma, a 26-minute short , is currently streaming on the Bandra Film Festival channel on YouTube. Made in 2004, the film was directed by Abhay Chopra. If you find the director’s name familiar, he is the same guy who directed the Ittefaq remake starring Sidharth Malhotra, Sonakshi Sinha and Akshaye Khanna, which was produced by Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan. Abhay Chopra is also the grandson of the late BR Chopra.

Interestingly, Karma is listed in the IMDB page of both the director and the actor as India, 1964, which is also the period when the film is set. Why 1964? Well, the movie’s theme revolves around capital punishment. Since 1973, the courts prefer to give life imprisonment to hardened criminals over death by hanging is maybe why I am guessing Karma is set before that.

Anyway, Ranbir plays Aryan, a young convict on death row. The movie is told from the perspective of a jail superintendent Raj Malhotra, played by veteran actor Sharat Saxena, who tells us that he has overseen many hangings, but the last one that he has to now oversee, of that of Aryan’s, has left him in a moral crisis. The reason what makes Aryan’s case so special paves way into the title of the film – Karma – as the film tries to explore the morality about taking a person’s life even in the name of law.

Anybody who has watched Adoor Gopalakrishnan’s tragic but  Nizhalkuthu, which came out a year before Karma was made, would be familiar with the premise of Karma, though the Malayalam film delves into the whole dilemma of court-sanctioned killings more intrinsically. Karma is, at best, decent and engaging enough more so for the known faces involved. It is plagued with a few continuing errors. A hand on a person’s face is not seen in a behind shot, while a wound on the neck keeps disappearing. But the moody camerawork and lighting work in the favour of the film. On Varun Dhawan’s Birthday, Here’s Looking at the B’dy Boy’s Raw Acting Alongside Arjun Kapoor in a Short Film 

But of course, you are more curious to know how Ranbir Kapoor fares as an actor in his first venture. Let’s say that there is a reason why Ranbir Kapoor gets to escape the conversations of nepotism. He is definitely raw here, but his intensity is there for everyone to see.

There are a couple of occasions where he seems to get into the ’70s – check out the way he says ‘baap‘ in a conversation with Saxena’s character. But he is utterly convincing in the moments where Aryan is on a break down. The star was already in the making since 2004…

While Ranbir is mostly seen in a stubble in the film….

… he gets even more youngish, when he goes clean-shaven in the final frames of the movie.

Ranbir has since then evolved more as an actor and as a star, with now having a Rs 300 crore hit under his kitty in Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju, and is about to appear in a sci-fi saga, Brahmastra, directed by his BFF Ayan Mukerji, But it is always fun to go and watch the humble beginnings of these stars and see the process of their evolution from there. In case of Ranbir’s, the writing was always in the wall!

Sunny Leone Birthday Special: From Aahat to Mega Scorpions, 4 ‘Scream Queen’ Movie Appearances of the Diva You Surely Missed! (LatestLY Exclusive)

Sunny Leone Birthday Special: From Aahat to Mega Scorpions, 4 ‘Scream Queen’ Movie Appearances of the Diva You Surely Missed! (LatestLY Exclusive)

The incredibly beautiful Sunny Leone is an actress, a philanthropist, a mother, and a movie producer. She started her career an actress in porn industry, and then thanks to a stint in a season of Bigg Boss, Sunny, originally named Karenjit Kaur Vohra, found mainstream acceptance in Bollywood, getting to play the main lead in Pooja Bhatt’s Jism 2. The movie was a big success, and Sunny Leone went on to deliver a bigger hit in Ragini MMS 2. Sunny Leone Birthday Special: These Cute Family Pictures Of the Actress With Daniel, Nisha, Noah and Asher Are Frame-!

Now you might remember Ragini MMS 2 for the “Baby Doll” song and its horrex (“horror+sex”) formula. This was also Sunny Leone’s first horror film, thus making her a legit Scream Queen, later appearing as a cameo in the sequel series Ragini MMS Returns. But this franchise is not her only horror quotient.

On the occasion of Sunny Leone’s birthday, we look at her more obscure Scream Queen appearances that you probably missed!

Aahat

Do you remember Sunny Leone appearing in a special episode of the SET show Aahat? She played an actress named Leila who finds herself stalked by a Freddy Krueger like entity in the reboot take of the horror series. Sunny Leone Birthday Special: A Versatile Style Capsule of Her Chic, Glamorous and Ethno-Cool Moments From Homegrown Labels!

I Eat Your Skin

This 2019 Australian horror film feels more like a movie shot on hand-held camera with some very bad acting. Here’s what the IMDB premise reads for the film – “A group of international photographers journey to photograph a rare bird in the Philippines. When one of them finds a corpse clutching a strange talisman, he becomes host to a vengeful spirit and begins to prey on his fellow travelers.” But there is an even bizarre story about this. This movie is a recycled version of an old adult movie of the actress called Black Shama, that was made even before Leone entered Bollywood!

Pirate’s Blood

An Indo-American production, this horror adventure thriller has a mix of Indian and American actors, and is about a vengeful pirate’s ghost and a treasure trail. Sunny Leone is one of the treasure seekers, and the movie her getting stripped a couple of times, trying to seduce her disinterested partner and then killed by a zombie.

Mega Scorpions

A pretty B-grade creature flick the genre which we usually watch downing a few beers, Mega Scorpions is about a bunch of scorpions who grow monstrously big and kill a bunch of humans. Sunny Leone appears towards the rear end of the film, in the epilogue and she doesn’t last really long. Credited in IMDB as ‘Hot Tub Hussy’, her brief involves appearing in a towel, disrobing herself to appear nude and then get killed brutally by a scorpion.
