BHUPESH BHAGEL APPOINTED AS AICC OBSERVER OF UP

On Saturday, the Congress party appointed Chattisgarh Chief Minister Bupesh Bhagel as poll observer for Uttar Pradesh. He tweeted on Saturday that Sonia Gandhi had instructed him to be the party observer for the upcoming 2022 Assembly elections in UP and that he will try his best “to live up to the expectations of the top leadership”. He was also previously appointed as poll observer for Assam where congress won 50 of the seats, out of 126.

The announcements come in as Chattisgarh health minister T S Singh Deo is hoping for a change in the state government. Baghel’s supporters are going to assert that the party appointed him due to the faith the party leadership has in him. The move could be in favour of Baghel as this will let him prove himself once more. Several leaders close to Baghel have told media that this will bring the rumours of a government change to a halt.

The CM said that “Chattisgarh cannot become Punjab”, “Chattisgarh will remain Chattisgarh”, he told reporters asserting such kind of a crisis would never occur in his state.

 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?
