The best approach is to let the film make itself, to let it grow organically, day by day. To find the rhythm of the director. To match a script to its space. To gain the confidence of the actors. To regulate the mood (good or bad) of the cast and crew.
~ Wong Kar-wai

The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Aamir Khan Biography

Aamir Khan Biography
Aamir Khan BiographyAamir Khan Biography: Aamir Khan, with his penchant for perfection and professionalism, is one of the few method actors in Bollywood, who has taken acting to a whole new level. An actor, director, producer, playback singer, a state tennis champion, and mentor to his nephew – he’s all that and more.

A Step Back In Time
Aamir Khan celebrates his birthday on 14th March. He was born on 1965 in Mumbai to Tahir and Zeenat Hussain. He has three siblings Faisal, Farhat, and Nikhat. The film industry was part of his life growing up as many members of his family were a part of it like his father, his late uncle Nasir Hussain, and his cousin Mansoor Khan. It was Mansoor Khan’s Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak that brought him success.

Aamir’s family roots can be traced back to Afghanistan. He is said to be a descendant of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad who was a scholar and political leader and Dr.Zakir Hussain, the former President of India. Dr.Najma Heptullah, who was a Chairperson in the Rajya Sabha is his second cousin.

Even as his first hit Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak made him an overnight heartthrob across the country, he married his sweetheart Reena Dutta secretly as their parents opposed the marriage. She even made a blink-and-you-will-miss appearance in his song Papa Kehte Hai in Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. They have two children Junaid and Ira. The couple filed for divorce in 2002. Soon after, in 2005 he married Kiran Rao, who was an assistant director on the sets of Lagaan.

Aamir was honoured with the Padma Bhushan award by the Government of India in 2003. He turned down the offer to replicate him in wax by Madame Tussaud’s. He was also a tennis champion representing the state of Maharashtra.

Trailblazing Years
Nasir Hussian’s Yaadon Ki Baarat, one of the hits in 1973, had Aamir playing Ratan in his younger days.

The Eighties
He made his debut in Ketan Mehta’s Holi in 1984. The film also had Ashutosh Gowariker as part of its cast, who was a friend of Aamir and later went on to direct the award winning Lagaan. But it was in 1988, with the release of Mansoor Khan’s Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, loosely adapted from Romeo and Juliet, which brought Aamir into the limelight. The film was a big favourite among film-goers and Aamir won the Filmfare Best Debut Actor Award. He received several nominations for the Filmfare Best Actor Award until he finally nailed it in 1996. In 1989, he had two releases. Raakh was a non-commercial film and his performance as Aamir Hussein was recognized. The second film was Love, Love, Love another teen love story with Juhi Chawla.

The Nineties
The 1990 release Dil with Madhuri Dixit made a big splash on the film scene. In 1991, in the remake of It Happened One Night, Mahesh Bhatt’s Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin, he played Raghu Jetley, an out of work journalist, who comes across Pooja Dharamchand, a spoilt brat played by Pooja Bhatt. The film was a big success. In 1992, he had another hit with Mansoor Khan’s Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander.

Aamir continued to work in one or two films a year, a majority of which became unforgettable hits. Mahesh Bhatt’s Hum Hain Rahi Pyaar Ki in 1993 paired him with Juhi Chawla, and did extremely well. In 1994, he shared screen space with another Big Khan of Bollywood, Salman Khan, in Andaz Apna Apna, which was lighthearted and fun. Ram Gopal Verma’s Rangeela in 1995, gave him a new look as Munna. It turned out to be a blockbuster. The same year he had another hit in, Akele Hum Akele Tum, with Manisha Koirala. His role as Rohit Kumar, a failed playback singer and single father, was well-received.

In 1996, he won the Filmfare Best Actor Award for Raja Hindustani, a love story between a taxi driver and an heiress. The film won several awards. He acted in Ishq, a romantic comedy and a multi starrer, which enjoyed good reception in 1997. Ghulam, in 1998, had Aamir singing ‘Aati Kya Khandaala’ to Rani Mukherji. His two films – John Mathew Mathan’s Sarfarosh and Deepa Mehta’s Earth 1947 – were critical and commercial successes. He played IPS officer Ajay Singh Rathod intent on fighting terrorism in Sarfarosh. In Earth 1947, he played Dil, the ice-candy man, caught in a love triangle. It was set during the partition of India and Pakistan and the resulting bloodshed.

2000 Onwards Aamir’s only release in 2000 was Mela with his brother Faisal Khan. The film did not do well at the box office.

In 2001, he produced and starred as Bhuvan, a villager in British occupied India, in Ashutosh Gowariker’s Lagaan. He won the Filmfare Best Actor Award. The film was India’s entry to the Best Foreign Language Film category at the Academy Awards. However it lost to No Man’s Land. His other hit the same year was in complete contrast to Bhuvan. He played the suave and urban Akash Malhotra in Dil Chahta Hai, a fresh look at friendship between three men.

After taking a break from films for nearly four years, he returned in 2005, with Mangal Pandey – The Rising. The film’s performance was average and got caught up in controversies about how accurately or inaccurately the Sepoy was shown on screen. In the 2006 release, Rang De Basanti, he played a laidback DJ who tries to take justice in his hands. In Fanaa with Kajol, he played Rehan Khan, a terrorist. His performance in Rang De Basanti won him a Filmfare Critics Award for Best Performance. He made his debut as a director with Taare Zameen Par in 2007. He also produced and acted in this film about a dyslexic. It was a critical and commercial success in India and overseas. In the early part of 2008, he launched his nephew Imran Khan in Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na. Aamir produced the film along with his cousin Mansoor and it went on to be a major hit.

Christmas 2008 saw the release of the much talked about Ghajini, a remake of the Tamil film by the same name. Aamir played Sanjay Singhania, who suffers from short term memory loss and his quest for revenge. The movie was a high earner which broke previous industry records. His 2009 release, Three Idiots, was based on Chetan Bhagat’s popular novel Five Point Someone. It starred Kareena Kapoor, Madhavan, and Sharman Joshi. The movie received a thumbs up from the public and critics.

Up Next
He is producing Delhi Belly which has Imran Khan in the lead. Aamir will be seen in a brief appearance, mostly in an ‘item’ number.

Radio Days

What is it about the 1940's that inspired nostalgia? Even for those of us that are now two generations away from it. Could it be the golden age of movies, the style and glamour? Or perhaps the propaganda.

I may ostracise myself in saying that I love a good war song. I even went so far as to purchasing the classic 'Songs That Won The War' from the post office. Ok, some of them are boring but there are some great ones: They'll be blue birds over the white cliffs of dover, dont sit under the apple tree...we'll meet again.

Everything from the 40's was great, well except the war, the rationing and the despair, but everything else was good, surely.

Here are 2 things I love(apart from the music)

1. Radios

Art deco radios are beautiful and they have a sound which has been lost to modern
sound systems which seek to drown out crackle, rumbles and general character. They use All these radios were found in Weird Stuff 164 Koornang Rd Carnegie Vic.
These ones cost between $200 and $500

2. Jewellery
These pics are of milk powder beads which were made during the war years to imitate modern bakelite beads. Made from Casein, a compound extracted from condensed milk powder. The milk powder beads were designed to look like newly popular 'plastic' or bakelite beads of this period.

The milk powder beads shown in the pictures were manufactured in a factory in Easey Street, Collingwood, Victoria in 1942. They have been hand dyed and strung in the traditional method of the period.

The beads have a lovely heaviness to them that you just dont find with modern beads and the colour is not overly glossy. They are the perfect thing to finish off your vintage outfit. A genuine blast from the past.

Actor Abhishek Bachchan Biography

Actor Abhishek Bachchan Biography
Actor Abhishek Bachchan BiographyAbhishek Bachchan Biography: Abhishek Bachchan, the anything but angry young man, came out of the shadows as Amitabh Bachchan’s son to build a success story in Bollywood.

His father’s son
He was born as Abhishek Amitabh Srivastav on 5 Feb 1976 in Mumbai. What set him apart from other babies born on that day was that he was the son of superstar extraordinaire Amitabh Bachchan and actress Jaya Bachchan of the Guddi fame, who is currently a Samajwadi MP at the Rajya Sabha. He has an older sister Shweta. He’s also the grandson of Harivansh Rai Srivastav (pen-name Harivansh Rai Bachchan) who was an acclaimed poet. Both Abhishek and Amitabh took on the ‘Bachchan’ from this pen-name. Abhishek is partly Punjabi Sikh on his paternal side and a Bengali Kulin Brahmin on his maternal side.

The 6’3” tall Abhishek studied at the Jamnabhai Narsee School and Bombay Scottish School, both located in Mumbai and also Modern School in New Delhi. His college years were spent in Aiglon College, Switzerland amongst the cheese, clocks, and banks. He moved to Boston University in U.S to study business only to return back to India to help his father with ABCL, which was hit by a financial crisis.

He was engaged to the controversially sexy Karishma Kapoor back in 2002. They went public during his father’s sixtieth birthday celebration. It lasted as long as January 2003. He got engaged to ‘the most beautiful woman on earth’ Aishwarya Rai in 2007 and tied the knot with her a few months later at the Bachchan’s residence, Prateeksha.

Abhishek Bachchan has endorsed brands like Motorola and Idea Cellular. He appeared with Aishwarya in the Lux ad and the star couple will be seen together in a PETA campaign.

Bachchan Junior’s Movies
Abhishek’s first film was Refugee opposite Kareena Kapoor in 2000. The film was not a blockbuster but a good debut vehicle nonetheless. He got nominated for the Filmfare Best Debut Award. His acting career dipped from here on as he went on to act in several films that didn’t boost him up to the star status enjoyed by his parents. Some of the films that he starred in between 2000 and 2003 were Dhai Akshar Prem Ke, Tera Jadoo Chal Gaya, Bas Itna Sa Khwaab Hai, Om Jai Jagdish, and Mein Prem Ki Deewani Hoon.

Come 2004 and our boy showed that persistence pays off as he delivered some brilliant performances. In 2004, he starred in Mani Rathnam’s Yuva as a goon Lallan Singh, winning the Filmfare Best Supporting Award. He then had another major hit with Dhoom in which he played the part of ACP Jai Dixit. Another film worth taking note of in the same year was Phir Milenge, a recycled version of the Hollywood film Philadelphia, revolving around AIDS. Abhishek played the lawyer Tarun Anand.

In 2005, he had a runaway hit in the comedy Bunty Aur Babli with Rani Mukherji, which had shades of the Hollywood hit Bonnie & Clyde. It was the first film where he appeared alongside his father Amitabh Bachchan. The second film with his father, Ram Gopal Verma’s political thriller Sarkar, was also a major hit. Abhishek’s portrayal of Shankar Nagre won him the Filmfare Best Supporting Actor Award. He also did some guest appearances in films like Salaam Namaste and Neal n Nikki. He wrapped up the year with Bluffmaster with Priyanka Chopra, in which he sang the number ‘Right Here, Right Now’ which was one of the top tunes of the year.

The year 2006 saw him in some of the biggest flicks of the year like Kabhie Alvida Naa Kehana that won him his third Filmfare Best Supporting Actor Award. He also made a brief appearance as Sunny Kurana in the sequel, Lage Raho Munna Bhai. He played Nawab Sultan Khan in Umrao Jaan with his real-life bride Aishwarya Rai. The film didn’t do as well as expected. However, the sequel Dhoom 2 did a great job at the box office.

In 2007, while Jhoom Barabar Jhoom didn’t perform as well in India as overseas, he did justice to Gurukant Desai in Guru, which also starred Aishwarya Rai. The sequel Sarkar Raj, with Amitabh Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai, again pulled in the moolah at the box office. He had only two films lined up in 2008 – Drona, which was a below average performer, and Dostana where he was paired opposite the hunky John Abraham.

In 2009, Abhishek had two releases – Delhi 6 and Paa. While Delhi 6 received mixed reviews, Paa received applause. In this movie, his father played the role of his son who is suffering from a rare disease.

Stay tuned
Year 2010 will see Abhishek with Aishwarya in two movies- Mani Ratnam’s Raavan and Abhinay Deo’s Crooked.
