CHINESE TENNIS STAR PENG SHUAI ACCUSES TOP POLITICIAN OF SEXUAL ASSAULT, GETS CENSORED
05 November 2021
China’s tennis star Penh Shuai had accused top politician in the Chinese government Zhang Gaoli of sexual assault on a social media platform, which was later taken down by the government. The sportstar accused Gaoli of forcing her into having sex with him and has revealed that she was in an ‘on and off’ relationship. The post was later quickly removed or deleted from the platform leaving media agencies unable to verify the screenshots that were later circulated.
Peng has not spoken about the post after the removal in public and there has been no public statement from the politician as well. Zhang Gaoli is a former member of the topmost seven-member politburo and is reportedly close to Li Kepiang. He retired as vice premier in 2018. Authorities allegedly rushed to wipe out any trace of the accusation made by Peng from the Chinese media platforms.
In the screenshots that have not been verified, she writes that she was in a relationship with Zhang, who is now 75, over an intermittent period of ten years. “Why did you have to come back to me, took me to your home to force me to have sex with you? Yes, I did not have any evidence, and it was simply impossible to have evidence,” she wrote on the platform. “I couldn’t describe how disgusted I was, and how many times I asked myself am I still a human? I feel like a walking corpse. Every day I was acting, which person is the real me?” she added.

SUBTLE HEART RENDERING COMEDY, SUFFICIENTLY DRAMATIC, GRIPPING CHAOS AND BITTERSWEET HUMOUR; A HIGH END COCKTAIL OF SCINTILLATING ENSEMBLE CAST AND CHARACTERS, WRITER- DIRECTOR CHIDAMBARAM ENDURES ALL STORMS TO DELIVER A WINNER
Ensemble casts have a unique place in Malayalam cinema. For decades, a good family drama in Malayalam has always been a good mix of pain, humour, characters, gripping plots and happy endings. Writer- Director Chidambaram delivers this fine balance in his debut film Jaaneman and creates a new age ensemble cinema for the routine film goer.
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, 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?
