INDIAN GOVERNMENT DENIES MAMATA BANERJEE PERMISSION TO TRAVEL TO ITALY

Indian Government denies Mamata Banerjee trip to Italy

 

The West Bengal Chief Minister has been denied permission to attend the World Peace Conference in Italy, by the Union Ministry of External Affairs. The conference is said to happen in October this year. The clearance was not given citing that the event was not commensurate in status for a state’s chief minister to attend.

TMC spokesperson Debanshu Bhattacharya reacted to the decision on twitter saying, “Central government denied permission for Didi’s Rome trip! Previously they’ve cancelled the permission for China trip too. We accepted that decision keeping international relations and India’s interests in mind. Now why Italy Modi ji? What is your problem with Bengal? Chi!”

CM Mamata Banerjee said the Italian government had invited her and that the government had given her special permission.

“Many people can’t visit abroad, the US or UK as Covaxin is not recognized by WHO but our PM has gone abroad with special permission. Did he think once that so many students have been denied the opportunity to visit? I have no problem with PM’s visit. But why did you not allow me to represent the country? Why did you stop me?”, she asked.

 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?
