    Flying cars, secret 'faarmoola', and mysterious fake nails: the wacky world of Bollywood spy films

    Going by the number of military intelligence and espionage films Bollywood is churning out, it looks like the industry's spy loving phase is far from over.The Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff-starrer War, which releases tomorrow, promises to be a high-intensity clash between two elite operatives. In the desi digital space too, spy stories have made a debut with Amazon Prime and Netflix's respective recent releases The Family Man and Bard of Blood.And why not? It's drama, action and intrigue against the backdrop of patriotism and national service – a sure shot formula to capture audiences' attention that has filmmakers belting out spy stories in succession.A hot Bollywood favourite in the Sixties, the genre reemerged actively in 2012. Saif Ali Khan became Agent Vinod, Vidya Balan was the unassuming undercover agent in Kahaani, and Salman Khan turned RAW agent in the massively successful Ek Tha Tiger. In the last few years, plots focused of various facets of the intelligence network and their committed operatives have been explored in 2013's Madras Cafe and D-Day, Baby and Phantom released in 2015, Naam Shabana (2017) and Raazi (2018). Earlier this year, Arjun Kapoor's India’s Most Wanted and Romeo Akbar Walter starring John Abraham have made it to the roster of films about intelligence personnel.Contemporary desi espionage films have become more thorough, representational and detail-oriented than the earlier attempts where the world of secret intelligence was fluid with a steady interchangeability between spies and undercover agents from the CBI and CID. But what these films lacked in authenticity, they made up in imagination and entertainment. Here's a look at some of the major and obscure Bolly spy movies.

    Can Indian cinema ever make a decent biopic?

    There was a semi-cooked one on former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, an over-cooked attempt on Shiv Sena leader Balasaheb Thackeray, a half-baked one on poet Saadat Hassan Manto that hit the screens in recent times. There was the excellent Paan Singh Tomar that told the tale of an Olympian turning rogue and then there was Dangal that brought out the struggles of two gold medalists who overcame misogyny in their families and several other movies in between that gave us more than a glimpse into the lives of real people. India is a country where poetic license is harder to get than a driving license.

    Ek Film Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga!

    One of the disappointing news from the movie industry is the poor performance at the box-office of Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, for, Bollywood’s first mainstream movie about LGBTQ love (Deepa Mehta’s 1996 film Fire was for a niche audience) needed more public backing, just to reinforce the feeling that India as a society is changing in these matters in the right direction. Of course, the lukewarm performance of the film at the box-office does not become a referendum on Indian society’s views on matters like homosexuality and queer lives. A movie may not do well for numerous reasons, and cinematically Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga does slip at a few places, but it is a movie that is full of heart, which in turn is full of love.

    From Maa to Mom: Bollywood’s ever evolving mothers

    “Mere paas maa hain”, that iconic line from the movie Dewaar, which became the subject of many jokes, since, epitomised the mother of yesteryear’s Bollywood – sacrificial, weepy, sometimes strong, but mostly made from the same mould. Cut to today and Bollywood’s love affair with its moms continues, albeit in a different avatar. Today’s mothers love the good life, are cheeky, fashionable and revengeful – as both Sridevi and Raveena Tandon showed in their recent films – Maa and Maatr, respectively.We take a look at how mothers have evolved from the traditional maa to the modern mom.
