Miss Lovely, An Off-beat Hindi Film! – Weekend activity

We’re finally lucky enough to witness a phase where Hindi Cinema does not comprise of only mainstream Bollywood ‘masala’ films with a somewhat tackily similar story-line each time. With a large number of directors and producers today wanting to experiment and make more ‘real’ cinema, there seems to be an evident rise in off-beat Hindi cinema which is obviously for the good. With a crop of amazing contemporary films like Gangs of Wasseypur, Peepli Live, Udaan having released recently, there are a number of mainstream actors and directors thinking out of the box.

Miss Lovely

These are thought provoking films that win a lot of critical acclaim but when it comes to overall viewership, they are unable to compete with typical Bollywood blockbusters. It is high time we rise above the present ‘Superhits’ to bridge the gap and come up with more movies that boast of quality.

Miss Lovely, an off-beat film directed by Ashim Ahluwalia is set in the lower depths of Bombay’s “C” grade film industry. It follows the devastating story of two brothers who produce sex horror films in the mid – 1980s. A sordid tale of betrayal and doomed love, the film dives into the lower depths of the Bollywood underground, an audacious cinema with baroque cinemascope compositions, lurid art direction, wild background soundtracks, and gut-wrenching melodrama. Miss Lovely is scheduled for commercial release on 17 January 2014.

You can check the trailer of the film

  1. Team, Really wonderful Topic for a HUGE Bollywood Fan like me! 🙂
    Off-beat story-line but with popular stars will qualify too, right?
    Or are you looking for those movies- low-budget, not-so-popular star-cast?

    Could you please elaborate on ‘Off-beat’?
    Will help! Thanks a lot 🙂

  2. Hi Anita,

  3. and one more thing aftr Anita’s question, do we need to write 5 posts about 5 films or discuss 5 films in one post

  4. can the old classics by Shyam Benegal, Gulzar or Basu Chatterji.

  6. I also could not submit my entry at 11.55 PM yesterday. I completed my post at about 11.54 and I could not login into my blogadda account.

    It was showing a message: Could not connect to the database. Too many connections.

    So I have submitted my entry now and its link is as follows:
