KERALA RAINS: RED ALERT IN THREE DISTRICTS, DAM SHUTTER OPENED, WATER TO TN INCREASED
15 November 2021
Kerala has been witnessing heavy rains for the past two days and the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has declared a ‘red alert’ in three districts – Idukki, Ernakulam and Thrissur. The heavy, perpetual rains led to water level rising in several reservoirs, which forced the authorities to open the shutter of the Cheruthoni Dam in the Idukki Reservoir. The shutters of the dam were raised by 40 cm at 2:00 pm. Periyar river had its water level rising with several areas near it seeing floods, the rising waters led to landslides and damage in roads. The Tamil Nadu government announced that the water level in the Mullaperiyar Dam had reached 140 feet and has a possibility of being opened. The news has made people living in the northern side of Periyar more vigilant.
The rains resulted in disruption in train services in several parts of the state. Incessant rains were reported in Pathanamthitta, Kollam and Thiruvananthapuram. The rain in the capital city has led to water logging in several residential areas, with several people expressing concern.

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?
