Meghna Gulzar, who is known for her films like Raazi, Talvar is all set to amaze the audience with yet another amazing story. No, we are not talking about the Deepika Padukone-starrer Chhappak, but another exciting project. Team CineBlitz had exclusively told you that Meghna will be working on her next film which will be based on the life of Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw and the team just confirmed it.

On the death anniversary of the iconic personality, Sam Hormusji Framji Jamshedji Manekshaw, who was the first Indian Army Officer to be promoted to the rank of the Field Marshall, the makers unveiled Vicky’s look in the film that goes on floors late next year. The script is written by Bhavani Iyer and Shantanu Shrivastava along with Meghna.

Producer Ronnie Screwvala says, “Sam Manekshaw’s name will be etched in history as one of the greatest soldiers and minds India has ever seen. Young India desperately needs role models to look up to, needs to be educated on the contribution made by this icon to India – as we know it today. I could not have asked for a better storyteller than Meghna to collaborate with on this one and will be a treat to do this with Vicky again.”

Meghna, who will be directing Vicky for the second time after their hit Raazi, says, “This film has been brewing between RSVP and me, for some time now. With Vicky now coming on board to play Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, it has begun to simmer. Looking forward to things to come to fruition one step at a time.”

Vicky said, “It’s an absolute honor for me to be getting the opportunity to portray the life of Sam Manekshaw. Reuniting with Ronnie and Meghna feels like Home because of the tremendous comfort level we share. We are thrilled to bring forward the story of this fearless patriot and the first Field Marshal of India.”

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Devdas completes 18 years of it’s release

Devdas has been considered to be one of Bhansali’s best films till date

Published at

on

Celebrated as one of Bollywood’s most cult films, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s all time classic Devdas featuring Shah Rukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit Nene and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan continues to remain one of the most notable works of Indian cinema. Today, July 12, 2020 marks 18 years of Devdas and there are various reasons for us to get nostalgic about this epic love story.

A visual treat for film aficionados, the film had left the audiences spellbound with it’s storyline, grandiose sets, splendid costumes and scintillating music. Shah Rukh Khan plays the role of Devdas, a wealthy law graduate who returns from London and falls in love with his next-door neighbour Paro (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan). As Paro marries ends up marrying someone else, Devdas becomes heartbroken and turns into an alcoholic. While he tries to deal with the pain of separation from his childhood sweetheart, Devdas finds support in courtesan Chandramukhi (Madhuri Dixit Nene).

Everything from solid performances to it’s blockbuster songs, this adaptation of Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay, truly traversed the boundaries of Indian cinema. A timeless rendition of love and fate, the magnum opus was India’s entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars in 2003 and even was screened at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival. The landmark film won in various categories at the 48th Filmfare Awards including the Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Choreography, Best Art Director and many more. Film’s all three leads even won big at the 50th National Film Awards. Devdas was then declared as the Best Foreign Language Film at the British Academy Film Awards. In addition to this, the romantic saga was even hailed at the Star Screen and Zee Cine Awards the same year.

Even after 18 years of it’s release, Devdas continues to wins us with it’s sheer opulence. Each time Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan came together, the screen truly smouldered and Madhuri Dixit Nene beautifully spread magic with her class act. Cinema maverick Sanjay Leela Bhansali truly outdid himsef with this film and it will always be regarded as one his best works of all times.
