Here’s How to Watch ‘Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai’ at Home

Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai’ will be the first big-scale entertainment film of Bollywood that will have a multi-format release on May 13.

Actor Salman Khan’s Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai is slated for a theatrical release worldwide on Thursday (May 13), adhering to the Covid-19 protocol issued by the government. However, the tent-pole film is opening at a time when India is going through an extreme crisis and most producers have pushed back their releases.

Salman’s fans are much excited about the movie which was due to release on Eid last year but was pushed owing to the pandemic and cinema closures. Finally, this year the movie is getting released but fans are worried about how to watch it since most cinemas across the country are non-functional owing to the pandemic. In cities where there is no lockdown, many still want to stay home during this testing time.

But fret not! Looks like one of the most loved actors also thinks about the health and safety of his fans and so he has planned the release of the film on digital platforms too.

Those interested in the movie can watch it on ZEE5 with ZEE’s pay-per-view service, ZEEPlex. Those using DTH platforms like Dish, D2H, Tata Sky and Airtel Digital TVcan also avail the service of ZeePlex at a price of Rs 249. Using ZeePlex, a user can book and watch the first day of the show from the comfort of their homes.

Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai will be the first big-scale entertainment film from the country that will have a multi-format release. In a recent interaction, Salman too said he would not encourage theatre owners to screen his upcoming film as he does not want people to say that they got infected with the virus when they went to watch the movie. He added that he is even incurring losses because of the nearly non-existent theatrical release of the film in India.

Jaaved Jaaferi’s Commentary in Lava Ka Dhaava Takes Us Back to Takeshi’s Castle Days

Jaaved Jaaferi’s new Netflix show Lava Ka Dhaava reminds us of his commentary days from the popular children’s show Takeshi’s Castle.

Seasoned Bollywood actor Jaaved Jaaferi has a special place in the hearts of the late millennial and early Gen Z kids of India. During the late 90s and early 2000s, Jaaved showed his cool dance movies in Boogie Woogie, was a part of fan-favourite kids films like Jajantaram Mamantaram and most importantly, won hearts with his commentary in the Japanese show Takashi’s Castle.

Takeshi’s Castle was an adventure-based game show where the participants would have to navigate difficult obstacle courses. Some of them included scaling high walls, others had to cross a pond through ‘skipping stones.’ The show was also made interesting by the presence of ‘royal guards’ or pranksters who would try to stop the participants from completing the round successfully. However, no matter how many people won these obstacle courses they would always lose in the ‘final showdown.

Takeshi’s Castle was an integral part of our childhood. It was a super interesting and unpredictable show. But for us Indians, what made the show so special was Jaaved Jaaferi’s commentary. The actor was relentless, using his sense of humour and voice modulations to make puns and jokes about every situation. There were also segments called ‘Jaaved’s Ridiculous Replay’ where we would see a contestant falling repeatedly, added with a quirky thing that the actor said. The show was a riot, thanks to the actor.

Hence, we were excited when we first learnt that the actor is hosting a similar game show. The show, which released on Wednesday, is called Lava Ka Dhaava. It is a Hindi dubbed version of the American show The Floor is Lava. It is also a high-pace obstacle course where the participants have to go from one corner of a room to the other without falling in make-believe lava.

The concept of the show comes from the popular game and meme of the same name. In viral internet videos, a person could be heard saying, “the floor is lava,” and their friends would scarmble to find any furniture they can climb on.

This show takes it to another level. While the lava is make-believe, it is still hot and intimidating. The contestants, who play in teams of three, have to jump across rotating furnitures, slippery rocks and even insect infested walls to go to the other corner. It is also time-bound, after five to six minutes, the stairs that help you get out of the lava room start dissappearing, making the exit next to impossible.

The show is interesting to watch. It is basically like watching any other American game show like wipe-out. However, we cannot deny that Jaaved’s involvement in the show makes it a lot funnier. Of course, there are some jarring moments, like how the audience is supposed to pretend that the actor is actually communicating with the contestants, or the times where it seems like he is reading out of a script to synch it with what the contestants are saying. The language spoken is also too literal instead of colloquial to separate it from the original version. Hence, ‘Spider-Man’ becomes ‘Makdi Manav.’ It also gets a little repetitive after three episodes.

That being said, Laava Ka Dhaava is a fun show to watch. It is amusing to see people bring out their most competitive side only to slip and fall in fake lava. Since we are also living in trying times, a show like this is exactly the mindless and hilarious distraction we need.

Not to mention, this is the closest we will be to reliving our childhood days where the evenings would consist of us watching Takeshi’s Castle and MAD on Pogo. Jaaved Jaaferi is an amazing actor, who has done some amazing work across genres. However, Lava Ka Dhaava has reminded us of his sharp commentary skills and we hope he does more shows like this soon.

Chiranjeevi Starrer Acharya Release Date Postponed Due to Rise in Covid-19 Cases

The makers of Chiranjeevi-starrer Acharya have pushed back the release date of the film from May 13. New date to be announced later.

Chiranjeevi-starrer Acharya will not be releasing on its scheduled date of May 13. The film’s makers have announced that the release has been postponed due to rising Covid-19 cases in the Telugu States. They are planning to hold the film for a better release window.

The Konidela Production Company tweeted, “Keeping in view of the pandemic situation, #Acharya movie will not be releasing on May 13. New Release date will be announced once the situation becomes normal. Wear mask, Stay home & stay safe! #AcharyaPostponed.”

The stakes are high for Acharya and it is important for the makers to release the film at an appropriate time. The exam season in the two Telugu states, the spike in Covid-19 cases, and also the delay in the production all contribute to this deferment of the release. The new date is yet to be finalised. The film is likely to be out either mid-July or early August,” Pinkvilla quoted a source as saying.

Directed by Koratala Siva, Acharya tells the story of a carpenter-turned-naxalite who is on a mission to conserve natural resources. Also starring Ram Charan, Pooja Hegde and Sonu Sood, the film has music by Mani Sharma. The film will have Chiranjeevi sharing screen space with son Ram Charan for the first time.

After Criticism, Kangana Ranaut Calls ‘She-man’ Comment About Taapsee Pannu a ‘Compliment’

Kangana Ranaut recently called Taapsee Pannu a ‘She-Man’ on Twitter. However, after being criticized by netizens, the actress said the comment was a compliment on Taapsee’s looks.

Actress Kangana Ranaut recently targetted her contemporary Taapsee Pannu on Twitter by calling her ‘She-man.’ However, after being criticized by Twitter users, the Queen actress has said that she meant the comment as a compliment about Taapsee’s ‘tough looks.’

A Twitter user on Saturday commented that Kangana’s She-Man comment was ‘cheap.’ Replying to a fan of the actress, he wrote, This is equally wrong and condescending. FYI. I had never watched this before though. Also there’s a huge diff between this and the Kangana tweet.

On Friday, Kangana shared a sarcastic definition of Taapsee on a Twitter handle called ‘Urban Dictionary’ which read, “Taapsee Pannu is bollywood actress known for her befitting replies. She’s also called as the “Sasti Copy” of Indian superstar and padma shri recipient – Kangana Ranaut. She is also a member of Pappu Gang (sic),” read the definition.

The tweet was criticised by her followers who claimed that Kangana was ‘bullying’ Taapsee. One user wrote, “Then what’s the difference between you and Bullywood? All that standing up for Sushant only to turn around and do similar to someone else.” Another comment read, “Shame on you to insult another fellow female actress. We don’t know if there are bullies in Bollywood or not but you definitely are one. You preaching about anything is like devil quoting scriptures.”

The comment was also deemed to be homophobic and transphobic as the term she-man is used derogatorily against trans people.

Meanwhile, Kangana will be next seen in Thalaivi, the biopic of former Tamil Nadu CM J Jayalalithaa. Taapsee, on the other hand, is currently shooting for Mithali Raj’s biopic Shabaash Mithu.

Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai’s First Song ‘Seeti Maar’ to Release on April 26

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan took to Instagram to share that the first song Seeti Maar, from his movie Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai will release on Monday, April 26.

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan took to Instagram to share that the first song Seeti Maar, from his movie Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai will release on Monday, April 26. In the poster shared on Instagram, he can be seen in all-black attire and has covered his face with his t-shirt.

Actress Disha Patani also shared the news on her Instagram handle. “Turn up the volume, aur ho jao tayaar, Kyunki ab aayega, Radhe aur Diya ka #SeetimaarOutSoon,” she wrote in the caption.

A few days ago, Salman Khan Films dropped the trailer of the movie on social media. The trailer gives a glimpse into the world of crime Radhe is pitted against. Randeep Hooda plays the role of the main antagonist, who looks suitably menacing in the avatar of a quintessential villain.

Action sequences form a major highlight of Radhe trailer, and it looks like the film is all set to pack a punch. Salman and Disha’s cute chemistry seems like another highlight of the film. Disha not only looks sensational but her character seems to have a lot of range and depth. The film also stars Jackie Shroff, who reunites onscreen with Salman Khan after Bharat, and his character seems interesting as well.

Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai is all set to release on May 13.

Kuch Toh Sharm Karo: Nawazuddin Siddiqui Slams Celebs Posting Maldives Vacation Pics

Nawazuddin Siddiqui is the latest celebrity to have slammed Bollywood actors who have been flaunting their privilege when the country is grappling with Covid-19.

Many Bollywood celebrities have been facing flak in the past weeks for posting their vacation pictures while the country is dealing with the Covid-19 second wave. Maldives has been one of the most popular destination among celebs, and many actresses, like Janhvi Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor and Disha Patani had been posting their photos from the beach destination. Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt too flew to Maldives recently, but haven’t shared any picture yet.

The lot that has been posting these picture have been criticised by many within their own fraternity. Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui is among them. When asked about stars posting vacation pictures during an interview, he said, “These entertainment celebrities posting vacation pictures at a time when the world is reeling under the worst recession. …Logon ke pass khana nahin hai aur aap paise phenk rahe ho. Kuch toh sharm karo (People don’t have food and you are wasting money, have some shame).

The actor also says that the celebs are posting about their vacation because they have nothing worthwhile to talk about. “What else will they talk about? Acting? They will run out of steam in two minutes. In logon ne Maldives ko tamasaha bana rakha hai. I don’t know what their arrangement is with the tourism industry. But for the sake of humanity, please keep these vacations to yourself. There is suffering everywhere. The cases of Covid are multiplying. Have a heart. Please don’t taunt those who are suffering,” he told Bollywood Hungama.

The actor also insisted that he had no plans to go for a vacation anywhere. He prefers to remain in his hometown, Budhana with his family. “That’s my Maldives,’ he said.
