CONGRESS NOT CONVINCED WITH CENTRE’S REDUCTION IN FUEL PRICES
07 November 2021
Congress in Karnataka along with other state factions have joined the game of calling out the minimal reduction made by the centre last week in Petrol and Diesel prices. The NDA government after a long overdue, had reduced the Excise on both fuels bringing the price of petrol and diesel by Rs 5 and Rs. 10 respectively. Former Chief Minister of the state Siddaramaiah said, “When the UPA was in power and crude prices were at $125 a barrel, petrol was priced Rs 65. Now, when the crude prices have fallen to $82 a barrel, and when petrol prices are brought down to Rs 100, can we call it a great achievement?’’
Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee(KPCC) President D K Shivakumar also added that the claim of the ‘Diwali gift’ was not valid. “Reduction in fuel price is not a Deepavali gift as claimed by CM Basavaraj Bommai or PM Narendra Modi. When you snatch Rs 40 from someone and release only Rs 7, how can you call it a gift?’ he said. JDS leader Bandeepa Kashempur also weighed in on the debate, saying, “There must be a larger committed response like working on alternate fuels such as ethanol.’

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.

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?
