The Supreme Court has recommended 8 names to the Central Government for appointments to Chief Justice positions to various high courts in the country. The High Courts of Karnataka, Calcutta, Meghalaya, Gujarat, Telangana and Madhya Pradesh will be getting new chief justices. The three member collegium headed by Chief Justice N V Ramana, and which has Justice U U Lalit and Justice A M Khanwilker, has also recommended the transfer of Tripura High Court Justice Akhil Qureshi to Rajasthan High Court and Chief Justice of Calcutta High Court Rajesh Bindal to Allahabad High Court as the new Chief Justice.

According to Hindustan Times, the recommendations also include the transfer of Andhra Pradesh High court Chief justice Arun Kumar Goswami to Chhattisgarh high Court, and Madhya Pradesh High Court Chief Justice Mohammad Rafiq to the High Court of Himachal Pradesh. Apparently, they have also decided the transfers of Rajasthan Chief Justice Indrajit Mohanty and Meghalaya Chief Justice Biswanath Somadder.

The collegium’s decision is historic as it has recommended 68 names to 12 high courts in the country for judgeship. This comes as the Chief justice of India said the vacancies in high judiciaries would be addressed on an ‘urgent basis’.

The decisions that were taken by collegium has not yet published in the official websites.

 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?
