ARYAN KHAN IS NOW NO. 956, SRK SENDS RS. 4500

Due to the persisting covid situation, visitors are not allowed in prison. Citing this reason, Bombay High Court allowed the provision of video calling to close ones or relatives twice a week. Aryan Khan who stays at Arthur road jail has apparently spoken to his family once, since he got there.

Aryan, after being tested for covid 19 after the quarantine, was shifted to the regular cell where he will be living until the next hearing. His bail order has been reserved till 20 October Wednesday. He has been reportedly ‘disturbed’ by the jail environment and has been consuming jail food, which he is not pleased with. To purchase food from the jail canteen, the Arthur Road Jail authorities were sent Rs. 4500 as a money order from Shah Rukh khan.

Support for Aryan is pouring in on social media and outside with critics accusing the NCB of targeting celebrities for publicity. Rana Ayyub has also written an OPed on Washinton Post comparing the partial treatment of two sons; Aryan Khan who was allegedly caught with drugs, and Ashish Mishra, son of MoS Ajay Mishra who has been charged with murder by running his cover over a group of farmers. Users have been pointing out that Aryan being a Muslim in India lives at the mercy of the state that treats him differently.

 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?
