Raman Kashyap was one amongst the eight people killed in the violence that erupted in Lakhimpur Kheri, Uttar Pradesh in Sunday. The violence occurred after the Union Minister Ajay Mishra’s son, Ashish Mishra drove an SUV over a crowd of peacefully walking farmers.
The local journalist, who is 35, was at the site to report for a local channel, on the ongoing protests against the Farm Bills of 2020. His father claims that he was killed when the vehicle ran him over. His body was found several hours after the incident took place.
His father told national media that he had been missing since the incident occurred. “He was just doing his journalistic duty. I received a phone call at 3 am about an unknown body. When I went to the mortuary…I saw it was my son,” said his father, Ram Dulari, to NDTV. Apparently, the journalist was caught between the two sides.
However, his colleague at Sadhna TV claims that he was attacked by the protesters, reported the Indian Express.

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?
