Prasoon Joshi Birthday Special: 9 Songs Writtern By The Lyricist That Will Give You All The Feels

‘Khuli si chot lekar, badhi si tees le kar, ahista… ahista, sawaalon ki ungli, jawaabo ki mutthi sang lekar khoon chala’ that’s how we remember Rang De Basanti! The movie that made us get set to fight for our nation for just causes. This is a line from the song Khoon Chala. That even today makes sense when you remember what happened during the protests against CAA. Those were written by Prasoon Joshi. The man would pluck words from around us, decorate it earnestly with passion and make you feel everything. We still proudly sing the song of RDB…our very own revolution on cinema that’s true even today. ‘Haan Ghar Me Rahega Desh’ Prasoon Joshi Pens Poem in Support of COVID-19 Lockdown

Joshi’s lyrics remind us of the golden era of music when a lot of emphasis was given on what was said along with composition. Joshi is probably one of the rare few who still believe in the power of words in songs to project your feelings. Every word that he uses binds you, makes you think and relate. In this age of unnecessary raps, distorted remixes and cringe-inducing lyrics, it’s such a rarity to find what he writes. So on his birthday, we decided to tell you about 10 of his songs that will make you catch feelings even if you aren’t ready for it.

Jeene ke ishare – Phir Mienge

While the composition is sweet, the words are so soothing, happy and positive that you instantly feel refreshed. ‘Kuchh Geet Purane Rakhe The Sirhaane

Kuchh Sur Kahin Khoye The Bandish Mil Gaye’ …we are in love again!

Khulke muskurale tu – Phir Milenge

The first line of the song itself will fill you with a lot of strength in spite of your circumstances. It says ‘Khulke muskurale tu, dard ko sharmane de‘. Time to embarrass the gloom! A song about having faith in the worst situations

Haa maine chookar dekha hai – Black

A blind girl learns about the world. How? ‘Haa main chookar dekha hai’ that’s what the lyrics are. Even if your eyes fail you, you have so much more within you to see and feel.

Acha lagta hai – Aarakshan

A man is admiring his lover… for everything she does, acha lagta hai! Mark the lyrics here…he is complimenting every little thing she does because he is in love with all of her!

Meri maa – Taare Zameen Par

Why this song? Maa in cinema is so important and yet we have such fewer songs on her. This one just breaks us.

Kaise mujhe – Ghajini

A man can’t believe his luck that he found such a wonderful person as his lover. ‘Kyu pehle naa aayi tum‘ the remorse of not being with her when he didn’t know her is so beautifully penned!

Rehna Tu – Delhi -6

Rehna tu hai jaisa tu‘ how often have you heard this? Very rarely and that’s why this song is so special. Joshi’s words make you feel so wanted!

Khanabadosh – London Dreams

If you ever had a band and musical aspirations, Joshi’s words here will give wings to your thoughts. Liberating and such a free-thinker!

Dooriyan – Break Ke Baad

Who would have thought there will be a song for ‘I need space’? Joshi pens that and uses words that give this wildly misunderstood sentiment so much credibility.

We are pretty sure we must have missed something really cool written by Joshi. Do let us know which is your favourite poetry of this wordsmith.

Halahal Movie Review: A Murder Mystery Watchable Mostly for Sachin Khedekar, Barun Sobti’s Fine Performances

Halahal Movie Review: A Murder Mystery Watchable Mostly for Sachin Khedekar, Barun Sobti’s Fine Performances

Halahal Movie Review: Murder or Suicide? The question that Eros Now’s new web movie, Halahal, starring Sachin Khedekar and Barun Sobti in the lead, raises during its marketing feels like it is cashing in on Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise. But Halahal is not about Sushant Singh Rajput. Also, it answers the question it raises in the opening sequence itself. Though you cannot say it is a SPOILER as such, but the answer is neither. Asur Star Barun Sobti Feels the Divide Between TV and Film Industry Needs to Vanish.

A girl is killed by a speeding truck when she is trying to calm down a guy, presumed to be her boyfriend, who is being chased by goons. The body is later burnt to destroy evidence, and her death has been passed off as suicide, which doesn’t find acceptability with her father, Shiv (Sachin Khedekar), a middle-class doctor in Rohtak.

Shiv realises that the police and the medical college, where the girl was studying, are covering up something about her death. He takes the help of a corrupt, roguish cop Yusuf (Barun Sobti) to dig out the truth. What they discover in the process is a scandal that can even topple the government, while also endangering their own lives.

Watch the Trailer of Halahal:

For a murder mystery, Halahal, directed by Randeep Jha, does one thing different – we know how the victim is killed in the start itself. All we need to piece out is what were the circumstances that lead to her death. In that aspect, Halahal is a decent thriller enough, with some very interesting twists and turns, especially in the third act. Writers Gibran Noorani and Zeishan Quadri make the mystery  connect to a real-life scandal of corruption and crime that happens in medical colleges, which gives a topical relevance to Halahal.

Then there are the fine performances of its two main leads, Sachin Khedekar and Barun Sobti. Khedekar does a great job of depicting the pathos of an anguished father in search of the truth. He forms the emotional core of the movie, and there are plenty of moments where the actor makes even weak scenes look wonderful to watch.

Barun Sobti is quite a surprise here, embracing his inner Hathiram Chaudhary, as he plays Yusuf with a rustic swag I have never seen him do before. Sobti is a truly underrated actor, who, given a good project, can go miles ahead, and after Tu Hai Mera Sunday and Asur, he gives us another taste of his caliber in Halahal. Both Khedekar and Sobti share a great onscreen bonhomie, especially evident in the liveliest scene of the film, where they chase after a mysterious informant. Asur Season 1 Review: Arshad Warsi, Barun Sobti’s Thriller Series Succeeds in Keeping the Mystery Alive and Binge-Worthy.

What doesn’t work for Halahal, though, is its average execution, that makes it look more like an extended CID or a Crime Patrol episode. It lacks the snappy attitude or a layered texture, that would have made it more memorable, It also doesn’t help that, apart from the two main leads, none of the secondary cast manage to leave an impression. There are also some very convenient contrivances that bother you, like how Yusif was convinced to be part of Shiv’s investigation so easily. It may have more to do with how Yusuf’s character isn’t written properly, though the actor’s performance doesn’t make it look so.

Yay!

– Sachin Khedekar and Barun Sobti

– The Third Act

Nay!

– The Okayish Making

– Some Plot Contrivances

Final Thoughts

Halahal is a mystery thriller that turns out to be passably decent enough mostly for the lead performances of Khedekar and Sobti. The film is streaming on Eros Now.

Emmys 2020: Zendaya Wins Outstanding Lead Actress for Euphoria, Here's Where You Can Watch the Series Online

The annual Emmy Awards were held in the US on the night of September 20 and with all the coronavirus related restrictions being in place, the ceremony took place virtually. While Watchmen and Schitt’s Creek took home a good number of trophies, Spider-Man: Far From Home actress, Zendaya made history by becoming the youngest-ever actor to bag an Emmy. The actress won her big award in the Outstanding Lead Actress Drama category for Euphoria, the popular HBO series. Emmys 2020: Zendaya Becomes Youngest-Ever Winner, Netizens Celebrate her Achievement (Check Out Tweets). 

For the ones who are eager to watch the show online, now that it has managed to bag a primetime Emmy, we have some good news for y’all. The show is available online on Disney+ Hotstar and you can watch the entire season one there. Well-being is an American adaptation of the Israeli show of the same name. It revolves around the central character of Rue Bennett (Zendaya), who’s a drug addict teenager fresh from rehab. It tries to highlight the troubled life of teenagers who are struggling to make sense of their futures.

Zendaya was competing against some very senior names like Olivia Colman (The Crown), Jodie Comer (Killing Eve), Jennifer Aniston (The Morning Show), Laura Linney (Ozark) and Sandra Oh (Killing Eve) in the Outstanding Lead Actress Drama category and her big win, though surprising, was deserving at the same time. Emmys 2020: Zendaya is all Things Charming in Her Christopher John Rogers Dress for the Ceremony (View Pic).

“I know this feels like a really weird time to be celebrating, but I just want to say that there is hope in the young people out there. I know that our TV show doesn’t always feel like a great example of that but there is hope in the young people. And I just want to say to all my peers out there doing the work in the streets, I see you, I admire you, I thank you, and yeah, thank you so, so much! This is—whoa, okay, thank you!” said Zendaya in her winning speech via zoom call.
