CM Dhami to stay if BJP wins

BJP 2022 election in charge for Uttarakhand and union minister Prahlad Joshi announced in a press conference, on Thursday, that the incumbent chief minister Pushkar Singh Dhami will stay at the CM if the BJP wins again in the upcoming polls. The party seniors and strategists came to the state to discuss with different leaders regarding the elections. They did a 2 day visit to analyse the situation as the party is facing an anti incumbency. During the press conference he asked regarding the differences within the party ranks and regarding the poll expectation, to which he answered that the party was expecting to cross a tally of 60 in the state, and that they have spoken to all leaders.

Joshi also took the time to respond on the congress’s stand of using ‘Jai Ganesh’ as an alternative to ‘Jai Shri ram’, calling it immature. He said the BJP has been using both slogans for long now. Referring to the congress leaders joining BJP he said, ‘Today their leaders are joining BJP because they know the congress has become a party of the past tense and the only party with a present and future tense is the BJP”. Joshi also attacked the AAP of ‘befooling the people’ of Uttarakhand, pointing to the AAP’s demand for proof for the Balakot airstrikes while having a retired solider as a candidate in the 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?
