MODI IN BHOPAL: INAUGURATES NEW RAILWAY STATION, ADDRESSES DEVELOPMENT AND WELFARE OF TAXPAYERS

Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Habibganj Railway Station which has been renamed as Rani Kamlapati Railway Station, after the first Gond queen of Bhopal, on Monday. He said in the function that such infrastructures and facilities were always expected by the common taxpayers and that it was an honour to them. It’s the model of the transformation from VIP culture to EPI, which stands for Every Person is Important”, PM Modi said. He also accused the previous government of being sluggish on implementing railway projects and said the work of ambitious eastern and western dedicated freight corridors expedited only in the last six-seven years.

 

In the event, he also announced that the ‘Ramayana Circuit’ Express Trains will be launched to pilgrimage destinations related to Lord Ram to promote religious tourism. “The congestion, filth at railway stations and inside trains, waiting for the train, inconvenience in sitting and eating at stations, safety concerns and fear of an accident, all these factors used to weigh heavy on the minds of people when they used to think of travelling by trains,” he said. “Not only this historic railway station in Bhopal has been revamped, but its importance also increased with the addition of the name of Kamalapati ji, the queen of Ginnaurgarh. The pride of Indian Railways has also been added to the pride of Gondwana,” he added.

 

The move to rename the station and launch new projects is being seen as the ruling party’s move to regain the support that it lost in the Scheduled Caste/Schedule Tribe vote bank during the previous elections in 2018 in the state. While speaking at the new Janjatiya Gaurav Diwas Mahasammelan in Bhopal, When we discuss tribal society’s contribution to nation-building, some people get surprised. They can’t believe that the tribal society had a big role in strengthening India’s culture. It’s because the nation was either never told about it or was kept in the dark and given very limited information on it…It happened as those who governed the nation for decades after independence prioritised their selfish politics. For decades, the culture and capability of people were ignored, even though they comprise around 10% of India’s population. Their issues, education and health meant nothing for them”, he said.

 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?
