PABLO TRAPERO Y VIKAS SWARUP: Misterio en la India


El nombre de Pablo Trapero es familiar para cualquier persona interesada en el cine latinoamericano y mundial, así como lo son sus películas de alta relevancia social. Aproximadamente veinte años de su trabajo han sido aplaudidos en todo el mundo, con películas como Familia Rodante, Leonera y Elefante Blanco (con la superestrella Ricardo Darín). Trapero fue nombrado Presidente de la categoría Un Certain Regard en el Festival de Cannes 2014. Su más reciente proyecto lo ha llevado a Delhi y Mumbai para filmar la adaptación de la novela de Vikas Swarup Six Suspects (Seis Sospechosos). Vikas Swarup es mejor conocido como el autor del libro que inspiró la película Slumdog Millionaire de Danny Boyle. El autor leyó el guión y expresó su satisfacción por cómo se llevó a cabo la adaptación de su libro.

Six Suspects es una novela de misterio que gira en torno a los seis huéspedes en una fiesta elegante. El libro ha sido adaptado al cine por John Hodge (de Trainspotting y The Beach). Teniendo en cuenta el gusto por el cine valiente y sincero de tanto Hodge como Trapero, se ha acumulado gran expectativa con respecto a la asociación de ambos. La especulación con respecto al casting de Amitabh Bachchan en la película también ha provocado la efervescencia de los medios de comunicación en la India estos últimos meses. Una cosa es cierta: este será el primer largometraje de Pablo Trapero hecho enteramente en inglés, ampliando así el disfrute de su talento a muchos más públicos.

Oriundo de Buenos Aires, Pablo Trapero ha mencionado recientemente a la prensa cómo el equipo de la película ha tomado con filosofía el tener que interrumpir la filmación en varias ocasiones debido a las lluvias del monzón. Ha expresado también cuánto a pesar de las diferencias aún encuentra a la cultura de la India y la cultura de Argentina parecidas.

El tercer libro de Vikas Swarup también será llevada al cine de Bollywood por Sriram Raghavan (Johnny Gadar, Agent Vinod).

JAL (Agua): Una Majestuosa Realidad Humana

 
Debe haber algo realmente inspirador y épico en la región del Gran Rann de Kutch en Gujarat. Las películas que han tenido escenas filmadas en el austero paisaje de la zona han visto su extraña belleza contribuir a su imagen de marca (algunos ejemplos son Lagaan o Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela) y Jal es la siguiente.

Siendo yo hija del desierto, me atrajo enseguida la increíblemente vívida cinematografía de Jal desde el principio, o mejor dicho, desde el primer tráiler.

EK MAIN AUR EKK TU: Cuando Kareena vio a Imran (y vice versa)

Se había hablado largo y tendido al respecto. Desde que Imran Khan había aparecido en la pantalla en Jaane Tu ya Jaane Na, el joven actor había expresado su deseo de protagonizar una película junto a Kareena Kapoor en el futuro, mientras que Kareena se mantenía, sin embargo, religiosamente fiel al valor seguro de los héroes mayores de la pantalla con apellido Khan ya sea Salman, Shah Rukh, Aamir o su novio, Saif.

Cuando finalmente y afortunadamente la cotizada actriz accedió a compartir espacio en la pantalla con un protagonista masculino de su edad (su última gran actuación con un co-estrella de su edad fue en la muy elogiada Jab We Met), Imran Khan fue por suerte de su elección. Y el público no tiene absolutamente nada que lamentar.

Oh La La: Ha llegado THE DIRTY PICTURE!

Calificación: ****
ARRASADORA es la primera palabra que tenía en mis labios al ver las primeros videos para promocionar The Dirty Picture con una deliciosa Vidya Balan ... y sí, soy una muchacha que habla sobre una chica aquí, pero permítanme asegurarles que la sensualidad que esta chica desparrama en la película también encaja  con la fantasía de todo hombre.

En el centro de la trama de The Dirty Picture está Silk Smitha (interpretada por Vidya Balan), una actriz que fue un símbolo sexual en los 80s al sur de la India. La estrella lasciva era la chispa de más de 400 películas en Malayalam y posteriores películas en Hindi de Bollywood, uno de las más famosas siendo Sadma, protagonizanda junto a Kamal Hassan y Sridevi. El éxito de Smitha fue de corta duración a pesar de la amplia gama de películas que dejó como su herencia, dado que ella falleció en 1996 a la temprana edad de 35 años.
