MONSERRATE ‘BEST REPRESENTS ASPIRATIONS OF PEOPLE’: GOA BJP
23 January 2022
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has justified the party’s decision to give the Panaji ticket in the upcoming Goa assembly polls to Atanasio “Babush” Monserrate while ignoring former chief minister Manohar Parrikar’s son Utpal Parrikar, saying they chose the former as the party believes in fielding a candidate “who can best represent the aspirations of the people.”
“He (Monserrate) has been actively engaged in social service for the people of the constituency for the past many years,” said the party in a notice issued by its general secretary in a local daily as is now mandatory as per directions of the Supreme Court.
“He was found to have a good understanding of the ground situation and shared a good rapport with the voters here,” the notice said.
Curiously, the party has claimed that Babush Monserrate is a “senior politician who has represented the constituency multiple times before” when in truth Monserrate’s current term as the legislator representing Panaji is his first as a representative of the state capital though he was selected from Taleigao and Santa Cruz constituencies before during his previous three terms as a legislator.

SUBTLE HEART RENDERING COMEDY, SUFFICIENTLY DRAMATIC, GRIPPING CHAOS AND BITTERSWEET HUMOUR; A HIGH END COCKTAIL OF SCINTILLATING ENSEMBLE CAST AND CHARACTERS, WRITER- DIRECTOR CHIDAMBARAM ENDURES ALL STORMS TO DELIVER A WINNER

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?
