HBO set to premiere Bradley Cooper’s ‘A Star is Born’ on 31 Aug
MUMBAI: English movie channel HBO is set to premiere Bradley Cooper’s critically acclaimed directional debut ‘A Star is Born’ on 31st August at 9 pm, co-powered by Kia Motors.
Big on feeling and emotional complexity, Cooper’s rendition of the classic tale fuses his talent with that of the inimitable living legend, Lady Gaga. ‘A Star is Born’ is a cinematic retelling of tumultuous love between struggling singer Ally, and self-destructive big-league musician, Maine. While Maine bolsters Ally’s confidence and career, his deep-seated issues eventually start fracturing their relationship, leading to an inevitable tragic end.
This phenomenal movie stirred the awards season, and for good reason. Bradley Cooper’s prepared hand shows when the plot steers through difficult moments. The impeccable casting elevates the film. Cooper successfully makes Maine less contemptuous, evoking sympathy. Lady Gaga proves her acting chops for the first time with commendable ease, and Dave Chappelle adds a layer of lightness as Maine’s best friend Noodles. What heightens this heart-wrenching tale, is the singular soundtrack. From ‘La Vie en Rose’ to ‘Shallow’, every song strives for authenticity and achieves it.
Giving fans the opportunity to Experience the Magic of this movie’s soundtrack, HBO and HBO HD present ‘A Star is Born Night’ in association with Social Offline. Featuring talented vocalists, and artists like Keshia B, Bad Romance and Rachna Ramdin ft. Metronome, Social Offline outlets across Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore will light up the evening with duets and ballads sung by the lead pair in the movie.
