Movie Review: The Conjuring

James Wan’s work along with Warrens case files surely paid off. The Conjuring is brilliant. With decent performances from all the actors except Vera Farmiga (Lorraine Warren) who is just unbelievably incredible, the movie has great deal to offer other than that. From realistic graphics and insane frightening yet astounding music to yet again some exceptionally carried out emotional scenes, the Conjuring is one movie that will pull out sentiments and then again the horrors the movie shows will haunt the viewers long after they turn their lights on.

Lady Gaga admits feeling ugly, lonely and insecure. The singer has opened up, for the very first time about her feelings to the LA Times.

The ‘Bad Romance’ singer had been busy shooting a movie with co star and the director of their upcoming film, Bradley Cooper. In the movie Gaga plays the roll of a girl named Ally who is struggling with her music career. Ally is a singer and a songwriter but feels uncomfortable in playing her songs. Seasoned musician Jackson Maine (played by Bradley Cooper) recognizes Ally’s talent and cajoles her into coming in the spotlight. Both of them fall in love with each other but the personal side of their relationship keeps on breaking down because Jackson has to fight an ongoing battle with his own internal demons as he is addicted to alcohol and drugs while Ally has to fight her insecurities.

During a scene in the film, Lady Gaga has a line where she talks about the criticism she has been getting on her looks, “Almost every single person have told me that they liked the way I sounded but they didn’t like the way I look.”

Which pretty much explains the bizarre outfits of the pop star throughout the history. She had been basically trying to cover her insecurities.

One thing the critics have noticed that in the trailer, how different Lady Gaga looks with her dark brown hair and no make up face at all. According to Gaga, it was exactly how she had to audition. The singer said, “When my character talks about how ugly she feels, that was real….I’m so insecure. I like to preach but I don’t always practice what I preach.”

She also admitted having a break down and had to repeat her scripted lines over and over again. She told the LA Times that when Bradley asked her if she was okay off set, she just started crying.

The singer also said, “It’s very lonely being a performer. There’s a certain loneliness that I feel, anyway-that I’m the only one that does what I do. So, it feels like no one understands…”

When asked what makes her feel beautiful, Gaga gave the answer which will thrill her fans, “To be honest, I think what makes me beautiful is when I see happiness in my fans. When I see or hear from them that the music that I’ve made has changed their life in some way, that’s what makes me feel beautiful…”

LAHORE, Pakistan: Ali Zafar’s Teefa in Trouble has done outstandingly well as it takes away Rs23.1 million on day one breaking the record of the biggest opening for a Pakistani film.

The record was previously held by Jawani Phir Nahi Ani.

What made Teefa in Trouble‘s record-breaking performance more impressive was that the movie did not open on Eid or a special holiday.

Teefa in Trouble, a joint venture of Lightingale productions, Mandviwala Entertainment and Geo Films, has been directed by Ahsan Rahim and it also features Javed Sheikh, Aslam Mehmood, Nayyar Aijaz and Simi Raheal among others.

The film has impressed spectators and critics, both calling the venture a new dawn for Pakistani cinema.

The film which marks the debut for both Ali Zafar and Maya Ali in the Pakistani film industry — had its star-studded and glitzy premiere on Thursday and opened for audiences on Friday.

On his film’s success, Ali Zafar tweeted, “Today marks history as it shatters all previous records by any Pakistani Film on its opening days with a grand total of 2.25 crores in Pakistan alone and that too a non-Eid holiday and against all odds and hurdles put in our way. Be-Shak, Vo ber Haq hai!”

Sanju-Poster

Ranbir Kapoor’s much awaited Sanjay Dutt biopic has been leaked online on the day of its release.

Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Sanju is undoubtedly one of the most awaited releases of the year. The Sanjay Dutt biopic has been discussed in detail as well, especially the fact that Ranbir is playing the titular role. Many people, Salman Khan included, believed that Sanjay should have starred in the film, at least in part. While that discussion is purely rhetorical now, we can confirm that Sanjay Dutt is indeed a part of Sanju and has done a cameo.

Some leaked footage which is going viral on internet has Ranbir and Sanjay in what appears to be a song. It is likely to appear as part of end credits of the film, confirming speculation that Sanjay had shot a song for Sanju. Both the real and reel Sanjay Dutt are wearing dapper suits and aviators in the leaked footage.

Earlier, reacting to Sanjay playing himself in Sanju, Rajkumar Hirani had said in an interview, “The thought of Sanjay as his older self in the film’s final portions had crossed my mind for a moment, but then I let it go as I felt it would be too abrupt and weird. For one, you are seeing Ranbir as Sanju throughout most of the film, and then suddenly, you see Sanjay playing his older self, which would have automatically disconnected the public’s link with the film.”
