Ek Tarfaa Pyaar Ki Taaqat, Tum Kya Jaano Ramesh Babu?

Most of our movies in Bollywood revolve around the classic concept of love. A lover chases his love interest, there is a conflict of interest, then they are close to coming together and are attacked by either a villain or a vamp, but despite it all, they have a happy ending.

But another very beautiful concept that I’ve seen in Bollywood movies is the love-triangle or one-sided love. While falling in love can be one of the most beautiful feelings in the world, the pain of unreciprocated love is the hardest to deal with.

So here are 13 Bollywood movies that beautifully portrayed the pain of ek tarfaa pyaar:

1. Devdas

1. Devdas

The film narrates the story of Devdas and his childhood love Paro and how their lives etch away because of this beautiful emotion called “love”. The movie was an adaptation of Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s novel Devdas.

The character of Devdas was beautifully portrayed by Shah Rukh Khan, who showcases every emotion in the rawest and real way.

2. Raanjhana

Shahid Kapoor says Mira Rajput brought along many house helps after wedding, but he never gets angry at them like Kabir Singh

Published

on

A scene in the Kabir Singh trailer inspired several memes. In it, Shahid Kapoor’s character, the hot-headed Kabir, chases his maid in the streets after she breaks a glass, presumably not on purpose. In an appearance on The Kapil Sharma Show, where Shahid and his co-actor Kiara Advani promoted the upcoming film, Shahid was asked if he’s ever lost his cool on domestic helps in real life.

According to Mumbai Mirror, Shahid said that his wife, Mira Rajput, brought along several house helps to their home after their wedding, and were he to break a glass, he would apologise to them and offer to clean up.

The actor has spoken about channelling a dark side of his psyche for the film, in which he plays a self-destructive alcoholic. In the past, Shahid has said that he would take long showers before returning home, to wash away the smell of the 20-odd cigarettes he was smoking on set. Shahid, on Kapil’s show, said that another reason for those long showers was to metaphorically ‘cleanse himself of all the anger and angst’ he was carrying on set.

“I don’t endorse smoking at all. However, the role required it, as the protagonist uses it to channel his angst and rage. It wasn’t easy, and it came to a point where I smoked almost 20 cigarettes a day. It would take me close to two hours to shower and get rid of the smells before I could return home to my children,” he had said in an earlier interview to Mumbai Mirror.

Kabir Singh is the Hindi remake of hit Telugu film Arjun Reddy, which starred Vijay Deverakonda in the lead role. Also directed by Sandeep Vanga, Kabir Singh is slated for release on June 21.

New James Bond film’s set rocked by an explosion, one crew member injured

Published

An explosion at Britain’s Pinewood Studios on Tuesday rocked the set of the next James Bond film, causing damage to the stage and one minor injury. The Sun newspaper said a triple blast hit the set after a stunt went wrong, taking off part of the roof and several wall panels.

One member of staff was crushed by debris falling down on him as he stood outside the studios, west of London, the tabloid said. The official James Bond account on Twitter said: “During the filming of a controlled explosion on the set of Bond 25 today at Pinewood Studios, damage was caused to the exterior of the 007 Stage.“There were no injuries on set, however one crew member outside the stage has sustained a minor injury.”

The Sun quoted a source as saying: “It was utter chaos. “There were three huge explosions and it’s blown part of the Bond stage roof off. A fireball was supposed to go through the set. That was the stunt but something has gone horribly wrong.The place is now on total lockdown.”

The film has been besieged by problems. Bond actor Daniel Craig had to undergo minor ankle surgery after an injury on set.Craig — who will play the legendary British super spy for the fifth time in the as-yet untitled film — sustained the injury during filming in Jamaica.

Oscar winner Rami Malek will play the villain in the long-awaited movie that is set to see Craig bow out after eight years as 007. The 25th edition of one of the world’s most enduring franchises will also see the return of Ralph Fiennes as Bond’s boss and French actor Lea Seydoux.

The production has been repeatedly delayed over script disputes. The delays were prompted in part by Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle’s replacement by Cary Fukunaga in September. The film is now due to open in cinemas in the United States, Britain and France on April 8, 2020.
