Hindi Movie - Happy New Year

I've had the privilege to watch a special movie screening of a Hindi movie called Happy New Year at the Indulge TGV One Utama recently. This movie was directed by Farah Khan, who has been choreographing hundreds of dance routines in the world of Bollywood. 

As you can see from the movie poster, this movie boasts strong characters, like Shah Rukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan and Deepika Padukone. It has been a while, since I saw a hindi movie and was hoping this movie will turn out good. But did it turn out the way I wanted it too ?! Is the movie worth watching again ?! Read on to find out more.........

Shah Rukh Khan 

Deepika Padukone

Abhishek Bachchan

Boman Irani

Vivaan Shah

Jackie Shroff

Sonu Sood 

Beware.... Spoilers ahead ! 

Charlie ( Shah Rukh Khan ) is all set to take revenge on Charan Grover ( Jackie Shroff )  who ruined his fathers life under a false robbery act. He started recruiting one by one, to form a team to steal a handful of diamonds. These diamonds are kept in Shalimar, a huge safe with numerous tight security. The only person that can access the safe is none other than Charan Grover and his son. Charlie has been waiting almost 8 years to take revenge on this guy, and the best time to do this is by joining the World  Dance Championship. 

The 6 of them can't dance..... hence they had to ask a bar dancer Mohini ( Deepika Padukone ) for help. Initially she refused, but later they managed to convince her to teach them the basics and she joined the team as well. She was the only person who did not know the motive of joining the World Dance Championship. 

The whole movie evolves around stealing the diamonds from the Shalimar. Each move is scrutinised over and over again before it gets executed.

This movie doesn't give you anything new to look forward too. Its a repetition of classical hindi revenge story that we've seen over and over again. The poor script doesnt capture the audience mind. The countless comedy bits doesnt allow you to laugh your heads off. I felt Farah Khan could have done better with the script. The movie does boast wonderful actors and actress but it just doesnt give you enough, something is still lacking despite the famous cast. 

But then again if you're looking for something entertaining without going deep into the script, then you might enjoy the movie to some extent. The songs are wonderful especially the India Waale song. Its very catchy and you just want to go out there and dance to the tune. Its one of my favourite song from the movie.... and I can hear myself humming to the tune at work ! They definitely spent alot on the movie, looking at the beautiful grand sets, stage shows during the world Dance Championship and their wonderful costumes. The dance and songs are beautiful in this movie.

Here I would also like to introduce a new show on Zee Variasi ( Bollywood entertainment channel ). Its called ''Dil Se Naachein Indiawaale''. Whats the connection you may ask ?!! 

Dil Se Naachein Indiawaale is a new reality show in line with the movie Happy New Year. It's India's first ever multi city dance tour in the quest to find the happiest dancers. It allows dancers to brush aside considerations such as technique and training, allowing them to let their hair down and dance straight from their hearts. 

The title of this show was actually inspired by my favourite song Indiawaale from the movie itself. This show will test their dancers on the level of energy and happiness they bring on the stage.  

And the best part is coming up !! Guess who are the judges for this reality show??! You definitely dont wanna miss this show once you know who the judges are..... I can guarantee you on that for sure! 

The judging panel is the star cast of the movie !! So you have Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Farah Khan, Boman Irani, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood and Vivaan Shah 

How cool is that !! You get to watch them live in action, judging the fellow dancers. They are basically of set, being themselves and judging the show from their hearts...... something that I would love to watch.

With the core idea of spreading happiness throughout the country through dance, this reality show comprises 10 episodes, which will be aired on Zee Variasi, every Saturday and Sunday from 18th of October for five consecutive weekends in total. 

The grand finale of this reality show will be held on the 16th of November. 

Reality Show : Dil Se Naachein Indiawaale

Date : Every Saturday and Sunday starting from 18th of October 2014

Channel : Zee Variasi ( 108 on Astro ) 

Grand Finale : 16th of November

The launch of Bollywood Professional at MUSE by Watsons

Being dark skinned I've always had my share of problems when buying cosmetics at a certain places. Mainly because their colors are too bright or just too light to go along with my skin colour & tone. Hence, when I received the invite for the launching of Bollywood Professional at the MUSE by Watsons, I was kinda excited and was hoping to find something that can suite my complexion. 

The wide range of cosmetics offered by Bollywood Professional

Bollywood Professional is the number one cosmetics brand used by Bollywood's top makeup artists for their Bollywood superstars. That means the makeup that you see on the actresses in the numerous Bollywood  movies are from this cosmetic brand ! They always seem to have that wonderful radiant, glowing skin, luscious lips, sexy eyes that makes them very vibrant & glamourous.  The secret is finally out and we get to be part of it. 

There were few make up artist to help you out with the products. Some of them will concentrate on your eyes, or your face and some will help you choose the right colours for your lips. I got to do my eyes first. 

I decided to let the make up artist choose the colours for me....... the only rule was, I didnt want it to look too dramatic. She chuckled & said not to worry... I'll go with your saree colour. That sounds about right I felt :)

Botanical shadow Primer

Just before using the eye shadow, she recommended the Botanical Shadow Primer. She used a very small amount of it and applied evenly over the upper eye area. Im very particular when it comes to my eyes cause Im allergic to some products. Sometimes it causes severe itchiness or my eyes starts watering..... yeah I know.... thats such a pain at times. But this primer did not give me any of those problems and Im glad. 

The benefits of this primer you may ask ?! 

- it primes your eyes for a smooth, long lasting eye shadow application
- evens the eyelid color and texture
   Now this I really need ! Cause I dont think I have an even texture on my upper eye area.
- botanically infused to soothe the delicate eye area 
- it has vitamin E !
- it has chamomile & aloe that helps to moisture the area 

Following which she combined a few eye shadows to match my bright pink & purple saree. The color did complement the saree colour.

Just before I got my face done, I was intoduced to Rani Birring !! She is the managing director of Bollywood Professional, born and brought up in England, and a professional make up artist. She is well versed with her knowledge of the beauty industry and its differing markets around the world... and she knew we Malaysians will be overwhelmed if products like this reached our shores.... and indeed it did.... dont you all think ! 

Tinted Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 

She herself saw my skin tone and recommended the tinted primer broad spectrum SPF 20 medium color to the make up artist.... And i agreed. Im sure she knows better. For me, I dont want the foundation to be too thick, or something that will be make me too fair. There is nothing wrong being dark skinned...... you just need a primer/ foundation that complements your skin tone.

After the application of the tinted primer - with my make up artist 

I love the look..... what it did to me was it hid all my pores and gave me a smooth complexion. You can wear the primer alone or under the foundation. I was quite happy with the primer alone so I skipped the foundation.

Next stop is the Lipstick ! They have 12 beautiful colours in their Liquid Lipstick range. The colours are very bold and bright. My personal best is Pumpkin Spice, Electric Coral, Electric Taffy and Electric Pink !! These lipsticks are very creamy without the sticky feeling. Plus they are long lasting.... so we dont have to apply over and over again !! I would pick the lipsticks as one of my personal favorites here :) The other advantage of using these would be giving your lips the extra hydration that they need.

1. Electric Pink
2. Electric Taffy
3. Electric Coral
4. Pumpkin Spice 

The way you decide on quality when it comes to buying lipstick is by the pigments.  When you put it on your skin, how much color is in it. These Bollywood Professional liquid lipstick are high in pigment and you can actually see the difference when you use them.

Now where can you get them ?! 
Head on to MUSE by Watsons at Sunway Pyramid 

Why did Bollywood Professional choose MUSE by Watsons ?

Well, this is mainly because MUSE by Watsons pride themselves on their quality. They have different products and all of them are known for their high quality. Their staffs are accustomed to give you the best service & good advice. You will definitely walk out of their stores with the right products, whether its skincare or cosmetics. 

You can also find them at
1. Isetan Suria KLCC - Opened in June this year
2. Genting Grand Hotel - Genting Highlands 

There will be more boutiques coming soon at these places
1. TANGS Malaysia 
2. TANGS Singapore
3. IOI Mall in Putrajaya 

The Star in You fragrance

Beside skincare and cosmetics they also have their own fragrance ! Yup... you heard it right. They . have everything in their bag. Its called ''The Star in You''. This is what Bollywood Professional got to say about their new fragrance 

This fragrance is expressive, individual and modern, filled with flashes of pure brilliance. For the STAR in you, is vibrant and alive, with luminous notes of cherry and mandarin, warmed with the depth and mystery of woods and spices.

Each of us get to take home this miniature to try it out

This was one of my first few events with the Butterfly Project, and I got to meet many of the famous butterflies who have been blogging for number of years. Some of them were really friendly and helpful. Also met Tammy for the first time, who is the founder of Butterfly Project. Spotted one or two new ones just like me.... and we got along pretty well :)
