FARMERS RUN OVER BY UNION MINISTER’S CONVOY, VIOLENCE BREAKS OUT
04 October 2021
4 farmers were killed in Lakhimpur Kheri (Uttar Pradesh) after cars that were part of the Union Minister of State Ajay Mishra’s convoy allegedly ran over a group of farmers who were being part of a black flag protest. The farmers gathered in Tikunia to protest against the farm laws ahead of an event where UP Deputy CM Kesav Prasad Maurya was to be Chief Guest. The union minister was arriving to receive the Deputy CM.
The farmers who were in the crowd claim that the convoy was led by the son of Mr. Mishra, Ashish Mishra, which the minister has denied. Apart from this, several more farmers were injured when the violence broke out. After the gruesome attack, angry farmers allegedly beat 4 men of the BJP to death and set their vehicles on fire. No FIR has yet been filed. A few videos from the violence are being circulated online and are being shared widely.
A total of 8 people have been killed in the violence that broke out on Sunday and several leaders of the opposition took to social media to express their rage. “How much does the BJP hate the farmers of this country? Don’t they have any right to live? If they raise their voice, will you shoot them, drive them over with a car? A lot has happened. This is the country of framers and not a fiefdom of BJP’s cruel ideology”, tweeted Congress leader and Uttar Pradesh in-charge Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. Opposition Leader of Bihar, Tejashwi Yadav tweeted, “Those who serve us food are dealing with such a genocide, horrific atrocities protected by power”.
Priyanka Gandhi was stopped on her way to Lakhimpur late in the night on Sunday and lashed out at the officers to show proof.

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

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?
