She is an actor with a million-dollar smile, sparkling eyes, and an adorable face. Her positive and warm aura won a million hearts back in the late 80s and early 90s.

She entered Bollywood at a time when a pretty face like hers was meant only to pull the audience to the theaters. But, back then, there was something unique about her which made her a class apart. It was her spot-on comic timing.

Chawla made her film debut in Sultanat (1986), and received wider public recognition with the highly successful tragic romance Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988), for which she won the Filmfare Award for Lux New Face of the Year.

She is Juhi Chawla who proved her mettle in the entertainment industry with movies like Ishq, Darr, Yes Boss, Ishq, Hum Hain Rahi Pyaar Ke and My Brother Nikhil among others.

In addition to acting, Chawla is a television personality, a humanitarian, and the co-owner of the Indian Premier League cricket team Kolkata Knight Riders. She married the industrialist Jay Mehta in 1995 and has two children with him.

On her birthday, we pick 5 best movies in which Juhi excelled as an actress and showcase her versatility. Take a look!

1. Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak 

Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak was where Juhi Chawla displayed her acting skills in her first outing as a proper female lead. Even being a city girl in real life and the movie, she convincingly played the rich-girl-from-over-protective-family. Her innocent and yet sweetly naughty character, her lingo (saying ‘hum’ instead of ‘main’), her eyes longing for the first love experience, her smile, her overall look – all this appealed to us and how.

Juhi went on to win the Filmfare New Face (Debut) award for QSQT and was also nominated for Filmfare Best Actress award that year.

2. Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke

She might not have won the Filmfare Best Actress Award for QSQT, but she snatched it for Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke.

This was a role tailormade for Juhi Chawla, as it showcased glimpses of her nature in real life – a girl with a sense of humour and a li’l crazy in the head who does not take life too seriously. Not to mention she played the part perfectly, holding her own against the Perfectionist Khan yet again like in their countless films together.

3. Darr

This 1993 romantic thriller is famous for Shah Rukh Khan’s iconic villainous role which clearly overshadowed Sunny Deol’s heroics. But one cannot forget Juhi’s performance of damsel in distress as she emoted excellently, bringing fear in her eyes and panic in her body language when is being constantly stalked by SRK’s character.

In 1997, the former Miss India was cast opposite Aamir yet again in multi starrer romantic comedy along with Ajay Devgn and Kajol. The bubbly image of Juhi was a perfect fit to the film’s genre. Though a commercial entertainer, Ishq is one of the biggest hits in Juhi Chawla’s filmi career.

The diva with a beautiful smile was nominated for Best Actress Filmfare for this movie.

Here’s Wishing the Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak actress a very Happy Birthday and hope that she continues to entertain her with more interesting roles.

‘Ishqeria’: An out-dated and poorly written love story

Published

on

Ishqeria

“Sabko confuse karna band kar do”. This harmless dialogue told in a jocular tone in the film, inadvertently sums up the fate of the narrative of this 2 hour film. Purportedly, a college love-story, this film ends up confusing the audience with its constant failed attempts to create suspense.

A chick-flick, “Ishqeria” is a film about a small town girl Kuhu (Richa Chaddha) who falls madly in love with her college senior Raghav Dalmia (Neil Nitin Mukesh).

How she manipulates her way into his heart, the circumstances that lead to their separation and a happily-ever-after ending, is what this film is all about, albeit centred round a convoluted plot.

A hackneyed a la Mills & Boon love story set in Mussorie, there is nothing refreshing or new in the treatment of this film. The characters seem jaded and the drama, trite and oft-seen.

Narrated in a non-linear manner, the screenplay appears a tad confusing. The first half is seemingly watchable, while the second half drags and makes for tiresome viewing.

The uncalled for playful suspense elements are over-stretched for no apparent reason and in the bargain lay bare gaping plot-holes.

Hinging on a wafer-thin and frivolous plot, the narrative is overextended and fails to involve the audience beyond the first half an hour.

Richa Chaddha as Kuhu Singh, a small town girl, essays her character with sincerity and aplomb. She is effervescent and bubbly and lights up the screen with her energy.

Neil Nitin Mukesh as the sad rich boy, Raghav is staid and plays his studious character to perfection with restraint.

The duo are ably supported by stereotypical characters who play their respective friends.

It is the direction which seems slapdash and the poorly-etched characters cannot deliver beyond a point.

The flavour of the film is unrefined and rustic and thus the dialect spoken reiterates this.

Technically, the film is astutely mounted. The camera work is glossy. The swipes used for transition while editing, make the film seem amateurish, giving it a comic-book feel.

The music too fails to leave an impression and the songs are picturised like music videos.

Overall, it is the poorly written script sans any novelty that proves to be the tragedy of this love story.

Film: “Ishqeriaa; Director: Prerna Wadhwan; Cast: Neil Nitin Mukesh, Richa Chadha, Raj Babbar, Manish Anand, Rating **

A post shared by Alia ✨⭐️ (@aliaabhatt) on

Alia took to her Instagram handle to share a sneak peek into the upcoming film. In the video she posted, one ne can see the glimpses of ‘Sadak’ and how the story will be taken forward by Alia and Aditya. The video also announces the release date of the movie. It will hit the screens in March 2020.

In the last few seconds of the video, it is Alia who is sweetly humming in the background. The actress, who has six songs to her credit as a vocalist, has apparently sung the song Hum Tere Bin Kahin Reh Nahin Paate that featured in the prequel. It is on this tune that she is seemingly humming.

Along with the teaser, doting daughter Alia also wrote a heartfelt birthday note for her father. Sharing an image of him with an owl, she wrote, “Dear Daddy, on your 70th Birthday you have given me the greatest present I could ask and dream for. You are directing me! Sadak 2 is a dream come true. What I thought will never be possible you have made possible. Thank you daddy from the bottom of my heart, soul and bones. This will be a journey of discovery. Of life, movies, feeling and most of all. Of a father and daughter. I love you my not-so-old man! Happy Birthday.”

For the first time, the ‘Raazi’ star will be directed by her father in the remake of his 1991 blockbuster movie, ‘Sadak’ which starred Sanjay Dutt, Pooja Bhatt, Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Deepak Tijori, and Neelima Azeem.

Sadak 1

The film saw Sanjay playing the character of a young man who falls in love with a prostitute (essayed by Pooja) and bails her out of the clutches of a transgender pimp-lord Maharani played by late veteran actor Sadashiv Amrapurkar in an iconic negative role.

Addressing the media here at the 34th edition of the Priyadarshini Academy Global Awards 2018 on Wednesday, Anushka said: “It’s a special day for me because I completed 10 years in the industry on this day. So receiving this award validates the choices that I made in my career.

“I don’t come from a film background. I didn’t have anyone to guide me in my journey. My parents also don’t belong to this industry so they also don’t know how the industry works,” she said.

The actress, who is gearing up for the release of her film “Sui Dhaaga”, made her debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in “Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi” in 2008.

She thanked all the writers and directors for playing a key role in her successful journey.

“I also want to thank all the writers who wrote amazing roles for me and the directors who envisioned me in those roles. I don’t think any actor’s career is complete without the contribution of these two people.

“I want to thank every supporter of mine all over the world who supported me and accepted me for who I am.”

While receiving the award, Anushka said,: “It’s a great of honour to have watched the work of great Smita Patilji. She has been a true inspiration, not just for me but many actresses and many women for her bold, difficult and fearless choices that she made with her work.

“She managed to be disruptive and not adhere to norms of the industry where rules are usually set by others. So, I really appreciate and admire her.”

“Sui Dhaaga” is inspired by the Make in India campaign that was launched by the government in 2014 aimed at promoting the country’s indigenous industries including textile.

Sui dhaaga Made In India

Anushka stars opposite Varun Dhawan in the Sharat Katariya directorial that is produced by Maneesh Sharma under the Yash Raj Films banner. Varun plays the role of a tailor, while Anushka plays an embroiderer in the film, which is all set to release on September 28.
