Return of the retro

The typical masala ingredients of the 1970s films seem to be back with a vengeance as reflected in many recent releases, writes Shama Rana
The retro theme was ushered in at the onset of this decade by Main Hoon Na, a 1970s-style entertainment package Recently released Action Replayy is a vintage retro comedy Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai was based on the life of the top don of the 1970s , Dawood Ibrahim
It seems that the 1970s film bug has bitten the Hindi film industry. The retro theme was ushered in at the onset of the decade by Main Hoon Na, a 1970s-style entertainment package. It seems it will only grow on visibility charts in the coming times. This year itself came Milan Luthriaís Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai, which portrayed the ascent of Mumbaiís underworld.

The fascination fundas
Ranjan Das Gupta
While Milan Lutharia went back to the 1970s to trace the growth of the underworld in Mumbai in his latest hit, Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, Madhur Bhandarkar follows Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Basu Chatterjee of the same era in his latest Dil To Bachha Hai Ji. Dev Anand has announced a sequel to his 1972 blockbuster, Hare Rama Hare Krishna to be shot at the same location of Hotel Saltee, Kathmundu, after the release of Charge Sheet.

ĎI am a mad girlí
With films like Itís My Life, Hook Ya Crook and Urumi in the pipeline, Genelia DíSouza has her hands full. In a chat with Sreya Basu, the actor says she wonít change her mad self for anything
How will you define yourself?
I am a person who loves to chill out more than anything else. I spent my entire college life at Caf`E9 Coffee Day at Carter Road (Mumbai). Even today, I have not changed my lifestyle; I still walk my way from home to the caf`E9, though now, at times, itís a bit difficult because of my hectic schedules.

Just for fun
Funky jewellery, which does not adhere to the conservative design, and which can be worn with any attire and for any occasion, is in demand today, says Surekha Kadapa-Bose
Times have changed. So have fashion trends. Currently, more than the clothes, accessories have gained importance. Footwear, bags and jewellery have taken centrestage. But it is also true that many women prefer to go without any jewellery.
