Shreya Ghoshal enthrals Vancouver – Music is forever

September 17, 2017 marked the very last event of team Shreya Ghoshal’s two month long North America tour. Shreya herself was highly emotional about her tour coming to an end. Like a true artist, Shreya was openly sentimental about ending her tour. But that was not really what audiences connected with last Sunday. For most audiences, the personal connection came with Shreya’s rendition of the classic Lata Mangeshkar song Roz Sham Aaati Thi magar aisi na thi. Those of us who are Vinod Khanna fans, were instantly hooked into her singing. We were remembering this dynamic hero of the...

Viceroy’s House. A Tale of Two Countries by Gurinder Chadha

Gurinder Chadha’s Viceroy’s House will be in theatres on September 1, 2017. The movie records India of 1947 – how a bloody conflict ensued between the country’s Hindu- Sikh majority and Muslim minority that sought Pakistan, how British colonial rule informed those tensions, and how the last viceroy Lord Mountbatten was not the cunning architect of partition, but a man caught up unawares in a bigger political game. London based director Gurinder Chadha, known for Bend It like Beckham, has a personal connection to these events – her Indian grandparents lived through the partition that displaced 14 million people...

Metro Vancouver’s most romantic concert with Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik

It was a three hour romantic concert at PNE Agrodome. If you are from my generation of Bollywood lovers, you heard Kumar Sanu songs when you first fell in love, you heard them at your first heartbreak and you heard them on your honeymoon. And maybe when you got divorced. 4000 romantic Vancouverites were at PNE Agrodome on Sunday evening, April 30 to hear Sanu with Alka Yagnik in concert. I think romance and heartbreak live in the same corner of our hearts because we go to the same songs in all these emotions. Sanu came dressed in a...
