Lets talk about Mahesh Manjrekar previous films before we come to “THE POWER” . Like Vastaav which was unlike a hard hitting crime based Action movie. After Vastaav , Mahesh Manjrekar shows The Power to cinema.
The Power is a story of Devi (Vidyut Jammwal) and Pari (Shrut Hassan) who are madly in love with each other but as Pari is daughter of prostitute , so Devi ‘s family ‘THAKURS” are not in favor of marriage. Reason Devi decides to marry in court and is about to leave to singapore , But circumstances were something else.
On day of marriage , Devi’s Dad (Mahesh Manjrekar” was shot injured and Devi rushes to hospital instead of court. On the other hand Pari keeps waiting and as she knows she is pregnant , she is totally broken. And from here starts POWER PACKED REVENGE .
Prateik Babbar plays a negative shade in a positive role, and the Main villian (Sachin Khedekar) who plays a masterstroke in the end. Salil Ankola is just magnificent in action

“Irrfan Khan” – An actor whom we seen since childhood in early 90s with the Mega Hit seral “Chandrakanta” celebrated his Birthday on 7th Jan and then attempting to make it in Indian cinema with some magnificent Hits unlike Madari, Life in a Metro , Pan singh Tomar and many short films with Nawazzuddin Siddique in early 2000s which are all available on you tube .
My association with Irrfan Khan sir is bit in a small way , but a special way. Firstly I had dubbed for movie LIFE IN A METRO during my theater days at BR STUDIOS. Then attended screening of his movies like “Madari” , “Hindi medium” which are known as amazing contribution to Indian Cinema.
Also met Irrfan Khan at Sunny super Sound on Third floor where I had come for my edit work and Irrfan Khan sir had come for his dubbing. He was so polite and humble and just believed in his work.
CAst : Satish Kaushik , Pankaj Tripathi , Mita Vashishtha
Review By : Priyanka Raina
Being a film encyclopedia , I remember all scenes registered in my brains, so don’t know If you all remember that One liner from movie JOLLY LLB 2 where Akshay Kumar fights for a alive man who was declared dead on papers.
Based on above scenario is based movie KAAGAZ where the main protagonist (Pankaj Tripathi) is declared dead by his Brothers so that they can take his property. And how he fights to get himself registered on Court papers is the rest of the story.

Review : Converting one liner of JOLLY LLLB 2 into whole movie felt too dragging. Satish Kaushik , Mita Vashishtha were good in small roles , but didn’t have much to perform.
Rating : TWO STARS
The Story ‘KAAgAZ’ produced by Salman Khan films and Directed by Satish KAUSHIK is available on ZEE 5 .
Basically Story of “Nail Polish’ revolves around court room drama which is based on High profile victim ‘Veer Singh’ who is accused on murder of children, and High profile lawyer comes to fight his case is Arjun Rampal. Story is simple Veer overcomes an accident due to which he has memory loss and becomes “Charu Raina”.
Now who is Charu Raina , mystery opens when Veer is tested on narcotics by Doctors to say truth. Truth is even more bitter as opens on Charu Raina in Kashmir where a guy named “Ranjit” had met 10 years back.

Mera Naam Joker released on 18th Dec 1970 , and so Today we celebrate 50 years of Indian Cinematic journey which had many fresh faces Unlike Rishi Kapoor, Padmini Kolapuri adding freshness to Cinema. Also adds 50 Years of Rishi Kapoor who played as a Child actor (Junior Raj Kapoor) in movie.
In Todays post by Neetu Kapoor on Instagram mentions “Mera naam joker released on 18th dec. 1970 .. today would have been his 50 years in the indian film industry #rishikapoor” which had more then millions comments in a minutes time, showing Love for Indian Cinema.
Indian Filmmaker who had introduced Ronit Roy Bose in Jaan Tere Naam , Baba Sehgal in Stuntman , and eventually became the first Director for Madhuri Dixit Nene to release her first HIT film “Sailaab” , as earlier were few of her releases but didn’t work. Meet Director Deepak Balraj Vij in a Exclusive chat on Incredible Cinema.
Q. First of all, as I heard about Actor Balraj Vij , Tell some of BALRAJ VIJ films which I think also my Generation would be unaware of his films. As Even I came to know about Raj Kapoor after reading the Book “Khullam Khulla“. What a Cocktail of films. Also Am curious to know about the films acted by Balraj Vij actor .
Deepak Balraj Vij : Ya sure , My Father Balraj Vij was an Actor and was Discovered by Bimal Roy. Bimal Roy is one of the World’s most famous Director as everyone knows. Then Bimal Roy did a film called “Pehla Aadmi” which was based on the principles of Subhash Chandra Bose. The Balraj Vij did a film called “Vachchan” as main lead which was featuring Geeta Bali . The movie had this lovely song “CHANDA MAMA” , which had Music by Ravi and sung by Asha Bhosle. Then he did many films and being his son “I had a very great platform for me” to get into Cinema. My Dad never told me to be a Actor or Director, Think it was Destiny or Circumstances of impact of his movies which brought me to “Indian Cinema“.
Q. You have launched many faces like Baba Sehgal , Ronit Bose Roy and worked with Madhuri Dixit in “Sailaab” which eventually became her First HIT release. Tell of your associations.
Deepak Balraj Vij :See Cinema is such a place when anyone comes here and then everyone goes into their world of discoveries. Some go too high , Some go too low , its all Destiny and then they return with content. Baba Sehgal is a very good Rapper and music director. Aout Madhuri Dixit, what should I say and the Best part is she is natural actor.
In Sailaab , We did a song “HUMKO AAJ KAL HAI INTEZAAR ,KOI LEKE AAYE PYAR” choregraphed by Saroj Khan which Saroj ji use to show to producers that “This song is done by me” and This Hit Jodi got lots of Love with Many songs , EK DO TEEN being the iconic.
Q. Since you have introduced all Biggies of Cinema , Your son Bobby – are you planning to launch him or when can we see him in movies?
Deepak Balraj Vij : Everyone thinks as am Director , I would make film for Bobby but it’s not that way. He has made his way himself, He is one of the top Gladrags Model. Bobby has done lots of theaters and he makes his short films continuously on board. Tom he going for one big coarse to update himself in acting. Yes he will be very soon in Cinema. He knows Martial arts, Dance and all skills.
Also to youngsters, I tell “Keep giving Auditions’ and never say no to good role, rest is your Destiny. like Shatrughan sinha became star even with that one scene. All depends on how you perform.
Q. Your Last film was MAALIK EK which I think was in 2010. And after making such big films which all are Musically Hit, what made a gap of Ten years?
Deepak Balraj Vij : Since Ten years , I have not made any film because earlier when I use to Make films – Was pretty easy. I use to announce when ever I wanted to start a film, For example want to start shooting on 10th and my infrastructure was strong by just calling up “Technical team” picture would start.
Now the biggest reason s “Distributers” and “Financer” whom I call as “Blood Suckers” , take film on 10 percent and Financer charge Two and Half percent interest on Lakh in return. Because of this many producers were in loses , Had to sell their homes to make films. Even I had to sell one of Home , well designed which I feel tell now. This all things go on , Then I thought what films to make and what I have to sell. Then I stopped and started working just as a Director.
Up to 25 films, I have directed as a Director and in all my films , Producers have earned huge profits. And even I got huge money. SO thought “why take tension” , Just be a Director and be happy. and In these Ten years , I have made lots of short Films. One of which is Made In India.
Q: Talking on Music , Music of all your films have been romantically Hit so far…
Deepak Balraj Vij : Music of all films weather “Sailaab” or “Jaan Tere Naam” or you talk on “Stuntman” is being loved, Coz I believe MUSIC is the only piece that connects with heart. and as you can see in background here too – with a soft Music. Music gives a warm sensation so I choose songs which I should feel in love first.
Q- Talking on Fans Question “Real Cinema or Commercial Cinema – Which of these give Director a major Throwback”
Deepak Balraj Vij : Good Question, see Real films are such which have real effect like when PM Rajiv Gandhi went in Bombblast – So I called up IMPPA and registered title “BOMBBLAST“. They were telling that such a incident has happened , everyone is sad and you want to register.
On this I told, “Incident has happened , I am sad and as am Filmmaker have idea in mind and if someone takes this title, Then I cannot make. I make films on real incident so this is called Realistic cinema. Now talking on Commercial films, I have given commercial Hits like Jaan Tere Naam which is totally opposite of this
Q What are your upcoming Projects in line?
Deepak Balraj Vij : My future projects are that I am directing one web series and planning to make sequel of JAAN TERE NAAM 2. That is only film I want to do as it had wonderful Music.
Q: Talking on Journalism, How would you differentiate Journalism in ancient in Todays times?
Deepak Balraj Vij : Firstly a sad news that a top most paper “Mumbai Mirror” has closed down. Now Talking on Journalism in 90s , what ever we use to share with them- They would only print that – And in return Gift give a Bottle of “Whisky” , “Conveyance” etc.
Also if outdoor shoot , some makers like Subhash Ghai would call them to shoot BY AIR , and it was all a different experience. Talking on Todays Journalism , We dont have to tell them a word, as they get matter via digital platforms. They take your information’s and check your history on Google , then by adding MASALA make a nice story. But I love Todays Journalism , Because I know once you say anything – It will take just a moment and you are on Air.
And as I can see all AWARDS on wall which you can see in video , On this Deepak Balraj VIJ says “This is in all a struggle of making 25 films , which takes a huge time”
Watch VIDEO for to see the Legacy of AWARDS of all musically Hit Films

Rani Mukerji has always wowed audiences with her brilliant performances in her cinematic career. Critics and audiences rate her performance in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Black to be her masterpiece and her acting in Hichki as one of her career best. Her impeccable acting as a specially-abled girl Michelle McNally in Black, who strikes a beautiful and soulful bond with her teacher, and her portrayal of a confident Tourette Syndrome patient, Naina Mathur, looking to stamp her presence in this world in the superhit Hichki, helped spark necessary societal conversations about inclusivity and the need for equal rights of citizens.
On World Disability Day today, Rani speaks about the need to be an inclusive, empowering society for all Indians. “I learnt a lot about humanity by doing these outstanding, sensitive films like Black and Hichki. I think these films contributed to making me a better human being and I’m fortunate that I got to do these films and be a part of such beautiful cinematic visions of Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Siddharth P. Malhotra. I hope these films managed to spark the right conversations in society about the need to treat everyone as an equal,” she says.
Rani says the characters Michelle McNally and Naina Mathur has made her a stronger human being. She adds, “I learnt about the resolve of people who are determined to triumph despite all odds stacked up against them, their dreams, their aspirations and essaying these powerful girls on screen, made me a stronger human being. I’m grateful that I can talk, see, hear and I realized that, as human beings, we might be taking these things for granted.”
Rani says stereotyping of human beings because of their handicap must end at all cost. She says, “For me, Black and Hichki were emotional experiences that opened my eyes more towards inclusivity for all, kindness and gratitude for what we have. As citizens of this country, we must all do our bit to constantly bring conversations about inclusivity and equality to the fore. Every citizen has rights and I realized that there is a lot of work that we all need to put in, individually, to stop discrimination and stereotyping of individuals like those I have portrayed in Black and Hichki.”
