PRIYANKA GANDHI TALKS DOWN MODI, ASKS “HAVE YOU SEEN THE LAKHIMPUR KHERI VIDEO”

Priyanka Gandhi recorded a video and was shared on social media in which she shares the triggering video of the gruesome attack on farmers that occurred in Lakhimpur Kheri on Sunday. The congress leader recorded the video while in detention and mocked the Prime Minister for celebrating ‘Azaadi’ when his ministers were ‘running cars over farmers’.

The video was posted hours ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Lucknow visit. “I have heard that you are coming to Lucknow to celebrate Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, but have you seen this video?”, she asked the PM in the video.

She then showed the video that was shared widely on social media of the attack, proving that the SUV ran over the peacefully walking crowd of protesters, without stopping.

“Sir, your government has kept me in custody for the last 28 hours without any order and FIR. This person who crushed the annadata (farmers) has not been arrested yet. Why?”, she raged in the video shared as a tweet.

“Remember that Azadi was given to us by farmers, even today it is the son of farmers that protect us at the borders”, she asserted.

The Prime Minister and major leaders in the central BJP are yet to respond to the Lakhimpur Kheri  incident.

 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?
