Rahul and Arjun – Still Waiting…

Rahul and Arjun – Still Waiting…

Remember this news back in December about Bollywood’s first real gay kiss, between Rahul Bose and Arjun Mathur (who was last seen in “Luck By Chance”)? Bose has is no stranger to queer cinema. One of first film appearances was in “Bomgay”, directed by the late Riyad Wadia. And, recently, Arjun Mathur appeared in Farhan Akhtar’s “Positive”, which was part of art of “AIDS JaaGo” (AIDS Awake), a series of

Top 10 Desilicious Tracks of 2009

Top 10 Desilicious Tracks of 2009

It was a lackluster year for Bollywood (stay tuned for our top 10 films or 5 if we can even find that many). On the other hand, some of the most unwatchable films (Kambakht Ishq) managed to at least produce some quality tunes for playing at Desilicious. Below is Sholay’s top 10 list for tracks that packed the dance floor in 2009: Keeping with the ’09 theme of unwatchable films

Best “Non-Desi” Music of 2009

It was really difficult to narrow down the top songs to just 10. In fact, the last few years have given me hope again in music. And, 2009 was no exception, with some stellar debuts and sophomoric releases, not to mention long-awaited comebacks. So, below are my top non-desi tracks of the year: In 2009, we had two (!!) separate releases by Cocteau Twins and former partners Robin Guthrie and

A Decade in Bolly Visuals: #10- “Raat ka Nasha” from Asoka (2001)

A Decade in Bolly Visuals: #10- “Raat ka Nasha” from Asoka (2001)

So, we begin our series of end of year/decade lists, and we’ll start off with highlighting some of the visuals that have delighted us since 2000. And at #10, it’s “Raat ka Nasha” from Santosh Sivan’s, Asoka, a very fictionalized account of the Indian emperor. As expected from a Santosh Sivan offering, the film is a visual feast, though somewhat lacking in plot and story. The soundtrack is a must

Most Anticipated Comeback of the Decade

Most Anticipated Comeback of the Decade

2010 can’t come soon enough, especially now that it’s been announced that the new SADE Album is set for release in early February. The new single, “Soldier of Love”, which you can listen to here, has been on repeat since it was released to the public this week. Her vocals are still smooth as ever and we’re loving the rhythm section on this track, especially the guitar riff and the

With 2009 coming to a close (and essentially the 2000s), we’re now all getting bombarded by the best of lists – some interesting to read, while others aren’t. We’re also thinking about our best moments over the decade – whether it’s Sushmita looking gorgeous in green against the landscape of Rajasthan, Hrithik dancing away in an Australian dance club or Madhuri’s stunning performance in Devdas. While we’re thinking about our

Rally for Marriage Equality Tonight

Rally for Marriage Equality Tonight

Having just stepped off a plane after a 15-hour journey from Buenos Aires, I was more than dismayed to read about the NY State Assembly’s rejection of the gay marriage bill. And, yet again, it’s a major religious institution arguing against tolerance – this time, New York state’s Roman Catholic Church. In protest of this decision, a series of rallies have been planned, including one for tonight, Thursday Dec 3rd
