PM Modi asserts support for farmers

Prime minister Narendra Modi had his first rally in Uttar Pradesh after the farmers protests. In his speech he described UP as the new hub of defense and education in the country. Without defending the farm laws, which were still a matter of discussion around the country, as protests are going on, the prime minister invoked Charan Singh. He stated that the former prime minister stood for small farmers, and that this government still stands with the farmers and schemes like insurance, Kisan credit card and increase in MSP by 1.5 times. CM observed how his government supporter cane farmers more than previous governments by issuing more allowances and schemes under the NDA rule.

He also praised the state government under Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for controlling the pandemic and having a leading vaccination drive. Modi invoked leaders like Raja Mahendra Pratap, whom he alleged was ignored by previous governments for his contribution to the freedom movement.

The rally song was titles ‘Saara Zamaana, Modi ke Dewana” and the event did not have any major speaker other than the Pm and the chief minister of the state, Yogi Adityanath.

 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, 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?
