ARYAN KHAN CHARGED, DID NOT POSSESS OR CONSUME CONTRABAND SAYS LAWYER

The 23-year-old son of Sharukh khan, Aryan Khan was turned in for questioning on Sunday for being part of an alleged rave party in a cruise ship in Mumbai. Khan was later charged with bailable offences by the NCB who busted the party after a flash raid inside the ship, mid sea.

His lawyers told the court on Sunday that Aryan was a special invitee on Cordelia, the cruise ship and was screened twice with no contraband or evidence of consumption. However, the NCB has claimed that there is evidence found in Whatsapp chats against Aryan and two others who have been detained. After the charges were made, Aryan, Arbaaz (39) and Munmun Dhamecha (39) were produced before the Additional Metropolitan Magistrate’s court at around 7 pm Sunday.

Public prosecutor Advait Sethna told that there is evidence found in WhatsApp chats with peddlers and suppliers. Sethna said there are suspicious transactions constituting offences under Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act. The three are booked under the NDPS Act on charges of consumption, possession and sale of these substances.

 THINKALAZHCHA NISHCHAYAM | MALAYALAM CINEMA REVIEW |

SATIRE DRIVEN, NON-MELODRAMATIC, FOCUSED, AND METICULOUSLY SCRIPTED; THIS MOVIE IS A WINNER THROUGH AND THROUGH!

How can one dislike a film that entertains throughout? In english, this movie title means ‘The engagement is on monday’.  There is no surprise in the plot line; all of it is revealed in the title.  The story is about the making of an engagement and the joys and troubles involved.  Senna Hegde pulls off a regular story with exceptional craft. The highlight of the film is its climax.  The climax offers no pomp and show, no tearful departures, no melodramatic breakdowns, no revolutions, no rebellions, no glamour, not even the promised engagement.This film is a must watch not because it is extraordinary, but because it is very ordinary, and the brilliance is entirely in the balance the filmmaker maintained throughout.

KURUP|MALAYALAM MOVIE| REVIEW|
KURUP, THE MOVIE; DULQUER’S ATTEMPT TO CONQUER CINEMASCOPE FILMMAKING LEAVES AUDIENCES EMOTIONLESS

THIS PERIOD MOVIE COMES WITH COMPLETE GRANDEUR; GRAND SETS, STYLE, A GOOD CAST, LEAVES NO STONE UNTURNED IN PRODUCTION, BUT FAILS IN ITS EDITING AND COMPOSITION. DQ DOES NOT BECOME KURUP, KURUP BECOMES DQ. 

Dulquer remains Dulquer, we recognize him and his methods in all his movies and he repeats himself once again.  The actor lacks gravitas in his dialogue delivery and intonation.  Can style and glamour make up for lack of method acting in a role like this?  Did we expect more?
