THIRUVANANTHAPURAM AIRPORT OPERATIONS NOW WITH ADANI
14 October 2021
Kerala: The Thiruvananthapuram International Airport inspite of major opposition was taken over by the Adani Group last year. From Thursday the business conglomerate will be taking over the operations at the airport, after an official transfer of power from the state government of Kerala. The immediate priorities of the group will be to bring back important flights and more connections to the airport, and along with that land expansion and infrastructural development. The land expansion could become a spot of a feud between the state government and the group, as the group has asked for an extra 18 acres of land beside the compound. Kerala government having opposed the transfer, may not be in favour of the expansion.
Current power transfer comes amid opposition from both the State Government and the Airports Employees Union, who appealed to the Supreme Court in November last year as the Kerala High Court had dismissed the petition. The Kerala Assembly too had passed a unanimous resolution flaying the privatization of the airport, one among two institutions taken over by the Adani group in Kerala. The other institution the group aims to take over is the proposed Vizhinjam port in Thiruvananthapuram.

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
Ensemble casts have a unique place in Malayalam cinema. For decades, a good family drama in Malayalam has always been a good mix of pain, humour, characters, gripping plots and happy endings. Writer- Director Chidambaram delivers this fine balance in his debut film Jaaneman and creates a new age ensemble cinema for the routine film goer.
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?
