MADHYA PRADESH BJP UPSET OVER ENTRY OF MOTHER-SON CONGRESS DUO

The ruling BJP facing by poll in Madhya Pradesh’s Jobat constituency of Alirajpur district is faced with an internal rebellion with the entry of Sulochana Rawat and her son Vishal from the Congress. The party workers are upset with the mother – son duo in the party with many members saying they will resign in protest.

The BJP is expected to give the candidature to Jobat to Sulochana or her son, to which BJP leaders are saying they will give nomination and contest as rebels. The constituency however is a largely Congress bastion. Dipak Chouhan, former Jobat Nagar Parishad chairman, and Abhijith Dawar, president of of party’s youth wing leader are in front line to protest the welcoming of the two congress members. Both of them have announced to contest if the party decided to let the mother or the son stand for elections.

Most of the workers and leaders opposing the move are seen to be loyalists of the ex-BJP MLA Madhosingh Dawar who was the main name always suggested for the ticket.

 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?
