KAPIL SIBAL SPEAKS TO THE MEDIA AGAINST CONGRESS LEADERSHIP

New Delhi: Kapil Sibal comes out to the media, against Congress leadership

“I cannot see my party in the situation that it is today. It breaks my heart”, said Senior Congress leader and Former Union Minister and lawyer Kapil Sibal at a press conference on Wednesday. The leader taunted the congress leadership by calling out the recent high profile exits from the party and from top posts as a crisis. Sibal’s press briefing followed a letter that was written by Ghulam Nabi Azad on urgently calling a CWC (Congress Working Committee) meeting.

The senior leader who usually keeps his opinions to the party leadership came out in public to express his concerns over the ongoing crisis in the party. He pointed out that there are leaders who was considered close by the Gandhi family and they have “deserted them”, unlike the G-23 (Group – 23) who were ‘with them’. Media has reported that the G 23 leaders had met at Azad’s residence to discuss the matters, and was decided to write the letter to Mrs. Gandhi.  Sibal’s press conference comes at a time when there is obvious and visible turmoil in the congress party interiors and senior leaders are finding it hard to keep up with the exits in various parts of the country. He said those who left the congress, (referring to Sushmita Dev, Jyotiraditya Scindia, Jitin Prasada, etc) should return to INC as, he asserted, congress is the only party that can “save the republic”.

With resignations in Kerala and Punjab, along with party fractioning and exits to BJP and the TMC, Sibal observed on the leadership crisis and said, “In our party, at the moment, there is no president. So, we don’t know who is taking these decisions”.

In the evening there were protests outside Sibal’s residence by mostly Youth Congress members raising slogans that said, “Gaddaron party choro (Traitors leave the party)”. It was reported that his car was also damaged in the chaos.

 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?
