DR. KAFEEL KHAN WHO GOT CLEAN CHIT, GETS SUSPENDED

Doctor Kafeel Khan who was suspended in 2017 after the death of 70 children due to lack of oxygen supply in the BRD Medical College Hospital has been now dismissed. On September 9th, the Allahabad High Court stayed UP government’s ‘second suspension’ order against Khan. The court had directed the UP government to wrap up the probe related to the 2019 suspension of Khan within a month. UP Principal Secretary Alok Kumar said that Dr. Khan has been found guilty in the probe that instigated the death of the children. He said the detailed statement of the suspension will be given to the court, as the matter is sub judice. 

 

Reacting to the dismissal in a video he shot standing in front of the Supreme Court, he says he was surprised not knowing why he was terminated after having been given a clean chit by the High Court. “They have no authority to terminate me. They should have taken orders from Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission (UPPSC) to suspend me,” he said. “Among the eight people suspended in the lack of oxygen case in the hospital, the suspension of seven others except mine had been revoked. The court had punished all of them in one or the other manner but the honourable court had given me a clean chit on charges of medical negligence and corruption,” Dr. Khan said in the video. “I will continue to fight for justice and will challenge the order in court,” he said.

 

Dr Khan’s dismissal is driven by malice. Motivated by a hate agenda, the government is doing all this to harass him. But the government should keep in mind that it is not above the Constitution. The Congress party is with Dr Khan in his fight for justice,” said Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi on the dismissal.

 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?
