UP ELECTIONS: MAYAWATI TAKES DIG AT SP AGAIN

In a series of tweets, Bahujan Samaj Party Supremo Mayawati has said their members in Samajwadi Party will only weaken the latter. She said that BSP ‘turncoats’ into its fold will not help SP but only weaken its base, reported PTI. The tweets came right after an SP rally in Ambedkar Nagar had Akhilesh Yadav speaking and was organised by two former BSP members Lalji Verma and Ramachal Rajbhar were two OBC leaders who joined SP, both being five-time MLAs in the state. Both the leaders were expelled from BSP for anti-party activities. 

 

She highlighted to her cadre that the party should refrain from getting tickets from disaffected members of other parties, instead only prefer their own members. “The SP should know that by taking such selfish party-hoppers, the ticket-seekers, within its fold are only going to make its workers angry, many of whom are in touch with the BSP… These people are going to inflict severe damage to the party from inside during the polls,” the leader said.

 

The leaders from BSP in Sunday’s rally, Lalji Verma and Ramachal Rajbhar won the Katehari and Akbarpur seats respectively in the 2017 UP elections. Before both leaders were expelled from their former party, Verma was the leader of the BSP legislative party in the state assembly where Rajbhar was the state chief.

 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?
