Bollywood Film Spark Review; Tollywood Actress Subhasree Ganguly deserved a Better Debut in Bollywood

Spark-Film-Review

Bollywood has been the most coveted destination for many acting in the various film industries all over the country. The glamour and the glitz of this industry is one which catches the eyes making most eager to making a foray into Bollywood; a recent trend noted amongst the Tollywood actors too. While some have been successful, many have not been able to make a mark. Tollywood actress Subhasree’s debut Bollywood film Spark released recently and here is what we feel the movie is all about …

The story of the film has nothing new or unique to write about. The film opens in Germany with Arjun, an Indian lad delivering boxes from a mini-van, drinking foreign liquor and going around in expensive cars. The story moves to India where a local goon Babu Lal is shown in all his fury and might. Babu Lal’s former boss who is in Delhi is full of vengeance and upset with things as his father left his mother for another lady. In between Arjun meets this pretty lady and they fall head over heels in love. Arjun then rushes back to India on getting a call from home. He gets entangled in politics and what happens next is what the film all about.

K. Singh’s Spark is a pain for the eyes and watching the film is self inflicted torture. The film moves back and forth between India and Germany so much so that you often think as if Germany is like the park in your locality where you can go whenever you wish to. The script (if there was one) lacks everything that is required to make a film interesting. The low camera angles receives a thumbs down from my side as using such techniques only ensure titillating some individuals but it does not have a mass appeal. Such cheap techniques could have been avoided and the director could have seriously invested his brain to work out something good.

The songs in the movie exist for what reason I could not comprehend. They start all of a sudden and do not have any role in either carrying forward the narrative or establishing any character. They are there because the director did not have a proper story and wanted to attract a certain section of the audience with skimpily clad ladies showing off their assets. But in this age of films, these techniques have seriously become out dated Mr. Singh.

As far as the actors are concerned, the presence of names like Ashutosh Rana, Govind Namdeo actually had convinced me that the film will not be that bad. But I was wrong and I simply do not know why these actors even agreed to do such a film. Rajneesh Duggal has the same stocky expression which he had been showcasing since his earlier films. Our very own Subhasree’s acting talent is wasted in the film. She may look glamorous but she hardly had anything to do in the film. She could have avoided this film as her Bollywood debut as her character was not fleshed out well. How I wish she had made a better choice.

Spark is one of those intolerably bad films which raises the very question- who produces these films and why? There are so many good films which get shelved due to lack of finance and many new directors who cannot give vent to their expression due to shortage of funds. The producers must seriously consider giving money to them rather than for films as spark-less and mindless as Spark.

Rating 0.5/5

Lights, crackers, sweets, good food- all symbolize the coming of the festival of lights, Diwali. This festival which marked the return of Shri Ram to his kingdom Ayodha after fourteen long years is celebrated all over the country with much pomp and joy even now. Magma Fincorp Limited, one of the well known NBFC’s in the country recently organized an event to share happiness with one hundred and fifty underprivileged children.

Like every Diwali, the company has been making an effort to share happiness in the lives of the not so fortunate children. These children are looked after by a Kolkata based NGO named Calcutta Rescue. The NGO works for the economically deprived individuals in our society.

Actress Rimjhim Mitra spent much time with the underprivileged children at the event. She distributed food packets, noiseless crackers and also burnt crackers with the children at the event. Speaking at the occasion, the actress said “These children also wish to have a good time during Diwali. Initiatives of this kind will ensure that they can at least be made happy on such festive days. Happiness increases only by sharing with others”.

Magma Fincorp has also created a Facebook page Pollution Quit India and has urged people to refrain from bursting noisy crackers. Hundreds of people have pledged to quit bursting such noisy crackers on this page.

The initiative by Magma Fincorp is praiseworthy as they have been thinking about spreading happiness among the children and also doing their bit for maintaining the ecological balance.

The Swachh Bharat Abhiyan Makes Way into Kolkata; Rotarians Bring the City Together to act to the PM’s Clarion Call

Swachh-Bharat-Abhiyan-Kolkata

About three hundred students from twenty leading schools of the city participated along with Rotarians and eminent dignitaries in an awareness walk on the issue of Swachh Bharat Campaign. The awareness walk which had been organized by the Rotary Club of Belur & Dist Interact Council Team started from the Victoria Memorial Main Gate which prominently stands out as a landmark in Kolkata.

The Swachh Bharat Campaign was flagged off by Lt. Gen Raman Dhawan, VSM**, GOC – Bengal Area (Eastern Command). He also delivered a motivating speech and stressed on three R’s which are Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. He also laid importance on the fact children are the best propagators of such messages and urged the children to do their bit for the country. He also witnessed the performance of a group of children to a few skits and was pleased to see the rising awareness of children on this important issue.

Clean-India-Campaign

The school children who were present at the awareness walk also distributed pamphlets carrying messages like Don’t throw trash on Road, Keep our Rivers clean, Don’t spit on the pavement, Don’t urinate in the open, Use Public toilets for nature’s call and many more such placards. The walk that went through the other landmarks of the city lying in the vicinity culminated at Rotary Sadan on Chowringhee Road. All through the walk there were slogans echoing GO GREEN, SWACHH BHARAT ZINDABAD, and WE PLEDGE TO KEEP INDIA CLEAN. This walk was organized in keeping with the clarion call of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Clean India; Clean City: Clean Environment. This has been initiated to celebrate Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th Birth Anniversary in 2019.

Steps of this kind will surely help in cleaning up the country. However the common people must raise their awareness and also do their bit for the country. Sholoana Bangaliana urges its readers and followers to participate in this campaign and extend a helping hand towards the progress of our nation.

New Bengali Audio Music Album ‘Antore Aaj’ is Sashibhanu Sarkar’s Humble Tribute to Tagore

Bengali-Music-Album-Antore-Aaj

The music launch of a music album “Antore aaj” consisting of Tagore songs took place at Uttam Mancha recently. The event was graced with the presence of eminent celebrities from the world of music like Avijit Bandopadhyay, Monomoy Bhattacharjee, Apala Basu Sen, Dipanjan Saha and Partha Pal.

The music album Antore Aaj consists of eight Tagore songs namely Madhur Madhur dhwani baje, Kolahol to baron holo, Fagun haway haway, Chokher alloy dekhechilem, Chhaya ghonaiche bone bone, Amar moner koner baire, Ami marer sagor pari debo and Jakhon Bhanglo Milon mela. The music direction and arrangement has been done by Dipanjan Saha, while the keyboard and rhythm programming has been done by Partha Paul.


Bengali Music Album Antore Aaj Launched

Sashibhanu Sarkar is a lecturer by profession and has been teaching at the Burdwan University. His passion for music led him to pursue graduation in music and also complete his Masters in music. His first album was with eminent singer Suchitra Mitra titled Teen Projonmo.

Speaking at the occasion Monomoy Bhattacharjee said “I have been listening to Sashibhanu live today and I feel that he should lower the scale down and sing the songs. This will add more melody to his songs. The fact that he has been coming from Burdwan to take music lessons and follow his passion in music is commendable. I wish he continues with this passion in future too”.

New-Bengali-Singer

Music stalwart Avijit Bandopadhyay opined that the songs of Tagore have a latent meaning of their own. “You may read it during your youth and it will have a meaning which will be different to the meaning you understand when you listen to them later. Hence a single song of Tagore must be listened to fifteen times so as to fully grasp the inherent meaning of the songs”.

The singer performed live at the occasion and kept the audiences mesmerized.
