BJP NATIONAL EXECUTIVE MEETING: MODI EXPRESSES CONFIDENCE FOR 2022 POLLS

BJP held its first national Committee Meeting since the break of the COvid-19 Pandemic in New Delhi. Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the meeting by telling the party cadre that they should become a ‘bridge of faith’ between the party and the common man. Union Minister Bhupendra Yadav said that Modi focused on the party’s core values of service, resolution and commitment and that it does not ‘revolve sound a family’. “In his address, Prime Minister Modiji gave a mantra to the party workers that they should become a bridge of faith between the common man and the party, while referring to the party’s history as it has always been associated with the issues close to the common man of the country,” the minister said. 

 

Mr. Modi during his address focused mainly on the welfare and trust of the people saying that public outreach and ‘identifying issues close to common man’ was key to winning the trust of the people. The PM also expressed confidence in the upcoming elections that may turn the wheels for Indian politics, with seven states going into the polls for assembly elections. The states that have elections after the deadly pandemic are Goa, Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Punjab, Manipur, Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh. The Chief Ministers of four poll-bound states, UP, Goa, Manipur and Uttarakhand gave presentations on the upcoming elections. 

 

Party President J P Nadda said that the ‘best was yet to come’, listing plans for the upcoming elections in the states. Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan who briefed Nadda’s speech said that the president was setting goals for the party for the elections in 2022. “The party will constitute booth level committees at all 10.40 lakh polling stations by December 25 this year and have ‘panna committees’, in reference to each page of voters’ list by April 6,” he said.

 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?
