Lior Raz and Avi Issacharoff were present at International Film Festival of India (IFFI) for the world premiere of the fourth season of their show. A clip shows, Raz shaking hands with Ayushmann.IANS Braveheart Vidyut Jammwal is trying out Highlining, which involves the counterintuitive act of walking on a line hundreds of feet above the ground on a oneinch rope. CHANDIGARH | FRIDAY | 2 DECEMBER 2022 The Indian adaptation of Fauda doesn’t live up to expectations Making Indians proud Bollywood actor and dancer Nora Fatehi on Tuesday set the stage on fire as she performed at the FIFA fan festival in Doha. Nora grooved on several hit Bollywood tracks on the stage such as Saki Saki and Manike, which were loved by all the fans and during her performance, the Street NET, FLICKS & MORE Tanaav H It will leave you with AVING watched the original Israeli series, the Indian adaptation looks more like a poor copy. Except for the change of scenery, from desert to Kasmir ki vaadiyaan, the series follows the original like the gospel truth. Directors have failed to play up the difference between West Bank and Kashmir and have relied more on the similarity in the conflict. One can’t help but wish that the actors had watched Fauda to give an equally overwhelming performance. Also, Tanaav is not as taut as Fauda. There’s not much depth to the plot and little homework is done on the characters except for the uncanny resemblance that comes from similar facecuts to similar hairstyle (the bald shooter for example). Only for Manav Vij as Kabir, the lead actor is nowhere closer to Lior Raz (Fauda), from his character look to its act. The same goes for Kabir’s wife, Nusrat Farooqui, played by Sukhmani Sadana. She looks lost. Arbaaz Khan does not add much value to it either. Many fresh faces flit in and out of the frames without leaving an impact. However, Shashank’s character Junaid Alam Shaikh shines at times. In fact, the casting for the antagonist gang seems better, be it Fatima (Sheen Das), Mushtaq the informer, Junaid (Shashank) or Series: Tanaav Directors: Sachin Krishn & Sudhir Mishra Cast: Manav Vij, Shashank Arora, Arbaaz Khan, Sukhmani Sadana, Rajat Kapoor, Sheen Das, Sumeet Kaul, Waluscha D’Souza, Danish Husain, Mir Sarwar and Ekta Kaul Rating: our main villain Umar Riyaz (Sumeet Kaul). They are certainly given better dialogues. The dialogues like ‘Ek zubaan thodi bolta hai koi yhaan pe, isiliye Kashmir ka masla aaj tak nahi sulajh saka’ definitely hit home on the duality of the Kashmir situation. One good thing about the series is it refrains itself from taking sides. In one of the scenes, Rajat Kapoor as Jagjit Malik while talking to his son in Punjabi at the same time warning a woman to kill her militant son highlights the contrast between their lives and understanding of duty. Manav Vij’s comment, ‘ Agar tabahi humara maksad hota to ab tak Kashmir kabristan ban chuka hota’ also puts forward the perspective of an officer on duty who doesn’t flinch when innocent lives are lost as collateral. All in all, it is a poor execution of a good script with heavy dialogues which don’t land. The Hindi adaption would sure leave you with some tanaav. As for sequels there’s no reason to look forward to unless most of the cast is replaced. ANG LEE Ang Lee to direct Bruce Lee biopic Oscar-winning director Ang Lee, known for helming Life of Pi and Brokeback Mountain, is set to direct a film about Chinese-American martial arts legend Bruce Lee. Ang Lee’s son Mason Lee will star in the film. Dan Futterman, who wrote Capote and Foxcatcher, is adapting the script. Jean Castelli, Alex Law and Mabel Cheung and Wells Tower wrote earlier versions of the screenplay. Bruce Lee, who died in 1973 at the age of 32, had a brief but lasting presence in Hollywood as an actor, director and martial arts expert. “Accepted as neither fully American nor Fully Chinese, Bruce Lee was a bridge between East and West who introduced Chinese Gung Fu to the world, a scientist of combat and an iconic performing artist who revolutionised both the martial arts and action cinema,” Ang Lee said in a statement.— IANS c m y b Dancer 3D actor waved the Indian flag and screamed “Jai Hind”.
