Starring the legendary actors Sharmila Tagore and Manoj Bajpayee, Gulmohar is now premiering on Disney + Hotstar. The film marks the comeback of the veteran actor Sharmila Tagore after a long hiatus from acting.

Directed by Rahul V Chittella, Gulmohar revolves around the Batra family who are moving out of their 34-year-old house, the Gulmohar Villa. The film promises a heart-warming tale of a dysfunctional family, which look ideal but is dealing with unsaid emotional disruption, trauma, and an uneasy present.

Watch Gulmohar’s trailer here:

Cinema buffs who watched the film have shared their reviews on social media already and going by the early trends on the internet, Gulmohar has successfully impressed the audience.

One user applauded the performances by Tagore and Bajpayee and called them powerful. Another user wrote the film is not for people who are looking for entertainment as it is a class-oriented serious emotional family drama.

Gulmohar also stars Suraj Sharma, Amol Palekar, and Simran. Co-written by Arpita Mukherjee and Chittella the film is said to be born out of Chittella’s experiences of having lived and worked in Nair’s house in Delhi which was sold.

Manoj Bajpayee was last seen in the web series ‘The Family Man 2’ which became extremely popular and he was highly appreciated for his acting. Sharmila Tagore has made a comeback after 12 long years after the film ‘Break Ke Baad’. Gulmohar also marks her OTT debut.

Bad Newz social media review: Vicky Kaushal’s charisma lifts predictable rom-com; Triptii Dimri falls short

The chemistry between Vicky Kaushal and Triptii Dimri is not anything remarkable; also, the film fades while trying to align its relationship dynamics with its plot mechanics.

“Bad Newz” is not a washout completely, but neither does it come any closer to being the riot one as expects it to be. Directed by Anand Tiwari and written by Ishita Moitra and Tarun Dudeja, the film indeed comes up with a comic premise about two dads and a mom expecting twins due to some sort of unique fertility situation called hetero-paternal superfecundation.

But the execution really lacks that required spark to entertain. With a few sparkling moments, the interminable length and complete lack of surprises drain the freshness out of the fun. The chemistry between Vicky Kaushal and Triptii Dimri is not anything remarkable; also, the film fades while trying to align its relationship dynamics with its plot mechanics.

The central plot twist, relating to a paternity test and a gynecologist’s prognosis, is interesting but becomes very predictable soon after it is revealed. Interesting is the concept of hetero-paternal superfecundation, clearly taken from the 2016 TV movie “Double Mommy,” but certainly not one on which to hang a film.  

Done for a quirky narrative twist, it feels basically like a disorganized mix of comic elements, much like food references throughout. Vicky Kaushal does charm through his performance, but he, too, cannot rise above the flaws of this film. The female lead, Triptii Dimri, fails to emote the intensity behind her character’s emotions, which affects the impact of this film.

The film’s final act is overlong, and it does drag along, shifting from being a comedy to something serious, without much resolution, and then concludes in a series of emotional and moral revelations that seem quite forced and dragged out. What seemed like an interesting setup in “Bad Newz” turns out to be a light snack rather than a satisfactory feast, lacking real humour and substance for it to be truly memorable.

Viduthalai Part 2 first look: Vijay Sethupathi, Manju Warrier return in Vetrimaaran’s sequel

Starring Vijay Sethupathi and Manju Warrier in the lead roles, the sequel is set to delve deeper into Vijay’s character.

Viduthalai Part 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed 2023 hit, Viduthalai Part 1, has sparked fervent anticipation among fans. Starring Vijay Sethupathi and Manju Warrier in the lead roles, the sequel is set to delve deeper into Vijay’s character.

Scheduled for release by the end of the year, Viduthalai Part 2 marks the conclusion of the two-part adaptation of Jeyamohan’s poignant short story Thunaivan, produced by Elfred Kumar and Vetrimaaran. The film not only promises to entertain but also aims to leave a lasting impact with its exploration of complex characters. As anticipation builds, fans eagerly await the culmination of this cinematic journey, promising to be as riveting as it is resonant.

Perumal Vaathiyaar shared the two posters on X (formerly known as Twitter), while Vijay wrote, “The beginning of a new chapter begins with Viduthalai 2, directed by #VVetriMaaran. First Look is Out #ValourAndLove, an @ilaiyaraaja musical.” In the first poster, Vijay is depicted screaming in the middle of a field, holding a machete in his hand, while the second poster presents a softer scene, featuring Vijay pushing a bicycle through serene fields with Manju Warrier by his side.

Building on the success of its predecessor, Viduthalai Part 2 aims to further unravel Perumal’s complex character and his journey, promising to captivate audiences with its depth and emotional resonance. The film also sees the return of essential actors such as Soori, Rajeev Menon, Bhavani Sre, Gautham Vasudev Menon, and Chetan reprising their roles.

This film is the second part of a two-part adaptation of Jeyamohan’s short story Thunaivan, produced by Vetrimaaran and Elfred Kumar. Anurag Kashyap’s reunion with Vijay Sethupathi after their collaboration in “Maharaja” adds further intrigue to the ensemble.

In the most recent episode of Bigg Boss OTT 3, an intense verbal clash unfolded between contestants Sai Ketan Rao and Lovekesh Kataria, sending shockwaves among viewers. The incident commenced innocuously enough with Lovekesh making a passing comment about another contestant, only to be swiftly challenged by Sai for unwarranted interference. What began as a mere disagreement quickly snowballed into a fiery argument within the confines of the notorious reality show.

Tensions reached a boiling point when Sai, in a fit of vexation, hurled a piece of Bigg Boss property in Lovekesh’s direction, intensifying the already charged atmosphere. Sai’s subsequent shirt removal and aggressive approach towards Lovekesh alarmed onlookers, but prompt intervention from Ranvir Shorey averted the situation from escalating into a physical altercation.

The public outcry following the ruckus was palpable as citizens took to social media to express divergent opinions. While some defended Sai Ketan, attributing his reaction to Lovekesh’s provocation, others rebuked both contestants for their use of abusive language and aggressive demeanour. This discord not only shed light on varying perceptions of acceptable conduct in a reality show environment but also underscored the blurred lines between entertainment and conflict.

As tensions simmered within the Bigg Boss house post-incident, the repercussions of this heated exchange are anticipated to reverberate through the contestants in the days ahead. The incident, stirring a frenzy of commentary from spectators and critics alike, serves as a poignant reminder of the emotional rollercoaster and social intricacies inherent in the realm of reality television.

Meanwhile, in a swift turn of events, Adnaan Shaikh’s entry into Bigg Boss OTT 3 as a wildcard contestant—following Chandrika Dixit’s recent eviction—was short-lived as he faced immediate expulsion for sharing information from outside the house with the contestants, marking a surprising twist in the ongoing drama within the Bigg Boss domain.
