IN POLL BOUND UP, AMIT SHAH IN VARANASI FOR TALKS ON 2022 ELECTIONS

Union Minister Amit Shah chaired a meeting in the Prime Minister’s constituency in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh on the upcoming state elections. He made it clear that he would be looking over and supervising the party’s arrangements for the 2022 assembly elections. He spoke at the meeting with the party members who are in charge of the 403 constituencies along with top leaders like Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. The meeting in Modi’s Lok Sabha constituency also included BJP’s 98 district-level leaders and regional unit presidents, apart from its state in-charge and national vice-president Radha Mohan Singh, state election in-charge Dharmendra Pradhan, and UP Deputy CMs Keshav Prasad Maurya and Dinesh Sharma.

 

The meeting marks a major move in the politics in the state as Congress Leader Priyanka Gandhi has already started her campaign by delivering promises on various accounts. The BJP has been keen that top leaders should resign over the party cadre in the state and seek feedback so as to face the challenges in the way. Last month, Shah had run a membership campaign in the state reflecting the elections. He will also attend the All India Rajbhasha Sammelan on Saturday and later visit Azamgarh to lay the foundation of Azamgarh State University and address a public meeting.

 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?
