Published

The song Pynk is a message to aggressive feminism in a very subtle fashion. It talks about gender neutrality, freedom and celebrating female anatomy

Janelle Monáe has dropped a new song and its video celebrates vaginas in every possible way. The video is a multisensory, radical journey into a new dimension of queer sexuality. In these visions, the governing symbols aren’t phallocentric, as usual, but shaped like the female reproductive system, where life always begins (for everyone). With that, Pynk heralds a new start for Janelle’s musical journey, using a color synonymous with womanhood to discuss the future of gender.

“Pink like the inside of your, baby (we’re all just pink) / Pink like the walls and the doors, maybe (deep inside, we’re all just pink) / Pink like your fingers in my, maybe / Pink is the truth you can’t hide,” Janelle sings on the track. The stunning and vibrant video makes multiple references supporting sex and body positivity.

Fans have been praising the video for its LGBT themes bold expressions. Actress Tessa Thompson, who also appears in the video, tweeted that the video is also meant to include and celebrate the transgender community.

Thompson and Monáe are rumored to be a couple but neither of them has confirmed their relationship status. Thompson also appeared in Monáe’s previous music video Make me Feel as the singer’s female love interest. The song was like a bisexual anthem…

The song talks about the sweet moments when two people entering a relationship. The lyrics show the attraction and appreciation between Tovino Thomas and Sharanya, which grows like a blossoming flower. Romance is the main idea which surrounds the song

The film, features Tovino Thomas, and debutant Sharanya in the lead role. Maradona is directed by Vishnu Narayan and is bankrolled by S Vinod Kumar under the banner Mini Studios. The film’s story and screenplay have been written by Krishna Moorthy. Its song ‘Kaadhale,’ crooned by Sruthy Sasidharan is a mellow romantic track written by Vinayak Sasikumar, for  Shyam Sushin’s tune. The song has a very romantic feel to it, and quite beautifully describes the fantastic period of getting into a relationship.

The others stars in the film include Chemban Vinod Jose, Leona Lishoy, Tito Wilson, Kichu Tellus and Jins Baskar, with Deepak D Menon handling the camera and Saiju Sreedharan being its editor.

While the title gave rise to speculations that it may be a sports drama centred around football, apparently it is not the case.  Maradona will be an action-packed romantic drama, the film is all about a youngster, played by Tovino, who raises his voice for his people. The movie is expected to hit the theaters by May.

Beyond The Clouds: Revealing Mumbai Like Never Before!

Published

on

Image from: hollywoodreporter.com

Beyond The Clouds is a movie that runs deep into the social lives of ghettos. It is about how someone in search of making quick money lands into the nasty game of the underworld in Mumbai. This movie explores the noir and sensitive aspects of playing the jackpot. It’s a story about love, loss, and realisation

Text Credits: Shibul Pavithran    

Oscar-nominated Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi, known for social realism in festival favourites such as Children of Heaven and Baran, might have travelled far from home for his latest venture, Beyond the Clouds, but his spirit of storytelling survives the jet lag. The film stars Ishaan Khatter and Malavika Mohanan and was shot extensively in Mumbai, will be released April 20th, across theatres in India.

The film revolves around two siblings, living in the Dhobi Ghat and going about their lives, when suddenly tragedy strikes. From hiding a pack of drugs to a gruesome arrest, leading to the struggle to break free, which seems to be the main crux of the film. After we watched the 2:16 minute trailer, our hearts were forced to feel the emotions of the relationship between Ishaan and Malavika’s character, but in the bargain the story seemed to miss our attention. One second watch, it’s easier to understand the plot that revolves around the want to make quick money and a boy who gets himself involved with a dangerous drug cartel to earn a quick buck.

It is highly unsubtle and impassioned Mumbai melodrama where Majid takes an unexpected leaf from the Bollywood book in his first step towards Indian cinema.  However, it is inevitable to draw a comparison between the feel of Beyond the Clouds and Slumdog Millionaire.

Mumbai city also plays a very central character in the movie. Cinematographer Anil Mehta’s (Secret Superstar, Lagaan, Veer-Zaara) lens glides, soars and dips through the dingy streets and jungle like structures with adequate majesty and filth, making it look raw and beautiful at the same time. The film pays tribute to this sleepless city, like countless films have done before — Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s classic 1989 film on the underworld, Parinda; Mani Ratnam’s 1995 inter-faith love story Bombay, Ram Gopal Verma’s Satya, and more recently, Anand Gandhi’s 2013 debut film, Ship of TheseusBeyond the Clouds stands to join this impressive list on an equal race.

Also the music is composed by A.R Rahman and has a very entertaining and magnetic feel to it.  The film certainly has many factors that make it a must watch!

God’s Plan: Drake’s Song Still Rules The Billboard, And Makes History

Published

on

Images from: stylecaster.com

Drake’s God’s Plan was released on January 19, 2018 and ever since it has been Rank 1, on US Billboard’s hot 100.

The multi-Grammy-award-winning rapper Drake has had two shots at fame — and nailed them both. He first came to prominence in the teen soap Degrassi: The Next Generation in the role of Jimmy Brooks, a wheelchair-bound character he played for seven years. After leaving the show he became one of the biggest rappers on the planet after signing a deal with Lil Wayne’s’s label Young Money Entertainment. Jay Z calls him the Kobe Bryant of hip hop.

Drake is making history on the Billboard charts again with his song God’s Plan. The Toronto rapper struck another milestone this week as the first male solo lead performer to achieve two 10-week chart-toppers on the Billboard Hot 100. Drake is one of the most popular artists on the planet, one who seemingly makes the world stop with every new release. But it’s interesting that, as hip-hop flourishes like never before, and artists continue to push the boundaries of the genre while still enjoying huge commercial success.

God’s Plan debuted in the No. 1 spot in January and has maintained the position ever since. The song is a kind of feel-good factor, escapist pop smash that listeners so desperately crave now. The song and video for God’s Plan are forever intertwined, and the ensuing package gives listeners a lot of feelings. They feel happy for the unsuspecting Miami residents on the receiving end of Drake’s charity. And they feel excited because they know that one of the genre’s biggest trendsetters has plenty more up his sleeve.

Drake first held top rung of Billboard’s main singles chart for that long when One Dance, featuring WizKid and Kyla, clung to the highest spot for 10 weeks in 2016.

Hotline Bling reached #2 on the Billboard hot 100, making it Drake’s highest-charting single in the United States (tying with “Best I ever had” in 2009), until One Dance. Hotline Bling also reached number three in Canada and the United Kingdom. The song won the award for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Song at the 2016 American Music Awards. It also received two wins at the  2017 Grammy Awards for Best Rap Song and Best Rap/sung performance and has around 1.3 Billion on views on youtube. 

Drake’s latest song Nice For What is all about Women Empowerment. The Canadian rapper took a back seat in his own video and let a bunch of strong ,beautiful women take lead role and shine bright. The video has Rashida Jones, Tiffany Haddish, Tracee Ellis Ross, Olivia Wilde, and many more.. check it out
