PRIYANKA GANDHI LASHES OUT AT BJP LEADERSHIP IN UP RALLY

In the Kisan Nyay rally organised in UP, Congress Secretary and UP in-charge Priyanka Gandhi said that Modi is busy travelling the world but had not visited the homes of farmers killed in Lakhimpur Kheri, though he was at Lucknow. In the rally she posed a scathing accusation at Yogi Adityanath and his government for ‘shielding’ Ajay Mishra and his son Ashish Mishra, who was directly involved in the violence, while the families of the deceased wants justice.

She pointed out the language the leaders of the BJP were using since last year to address the protesters of the Farm bills. She said PM Modi called the farmers ‘terrorists’ and ‘andolanjeevi‘. She said Yogi Adityanath called them hooligans and mentioned the controversial speech MoS Ajay Mishra gave before the Lakhimpur Incident which is said to have provoked the protests. In the speech he was seen giving threatening remarks on the farmers protesting.

“Modi Ji bought two aircrafts for himself for Rs 16,000 crore last year. He sold the entire Air India of this country for just Rs 18,000 crore to his billionaire friends,” she said in the rally. She also added, “Farmers are protesting for over 300 days, during which more than 600 farmers have died. They are protesting because they know that their income, land and crops would be go to billionaire friends of this government”.

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.
