LOCAL SUGAR going to Malmö, Sweden!

LOCAL SUGAR is going to The Financing Forum for Kid's Content in Malmo, Sweden! (Sorry if I missed an umlaut--I'm fighting the text editor...) Local Sugar is a family-friendly, Louisiana-set animated feature screenplay that has been winning and placing high in various contests--time to talk to people who can get movies made, no matter where on Earth that takes me! If you're a fan of animation and storie

Siraj Syed reviews satirical short Screwdriver: Nut screws washers and bolts

It begins with two friends at a dining table, trying to fix a day for their drinks and dinner to celebrate one of them getting married. They cannot find any convenient date, because, due to sheer bad luck, there is a string of ‘Dry Days’ looming ahead. Dry Days are so named, in India, not because there is no rainfall on these days (there could be plenty of rain on a Dry Day) but because the Indian government bans the sale and consumption of alcohol on national and religious holiday...

Siraj Syed reviews Haraamkhor: Harmful to the core

Siraj Syed reviews Haraamkhor: Harmful to the core Haraamkhor: A derisive term, having its roots in Persian (Farsi) and widely used in present-day Urdu and Hindi. Haraamkhor literally means one who feeds on ill-begotten food, haraam meaning immoral, or not kosher, the antonym of halaal, right and approved. Khor refers to eater, or consumer, from the Persian verb khordan, to eat. Some prefer to spell the word beginning with a qh, to distinguish from the kh sound, which is less guttural and not...

Siraj Syed reviews Wajah Tum Ho: Rapists and therapists, aka Serial Killing on a News Channel

Siraj Syed reviews Wajah Tum Ho: Rapists and therapists, aka Serial Killing on a News Channel Some people just deserve to die. There must be a mistake. Are you talking to me? Are you suggesting that I have done something that ... No, not you. Then who? The corrupt Assistant Commissioner of Police who preys on young lovers in parking lots, and extorts sex the teenage girl-friend in a guest-house, in return for letting them off. Isn’t this the same cop who is blackmailing a Mumbai-ba...

Siraj Syed reviews Shivaay: She: Vaay? He: Vaay not?

Siraj Syed reviews Shivaay: She: Vaay? He: Vaay not? Shivaay is a balanced film, in a convoluted kind of way. There is a germ of a story and there is major plagiarism of tracks from both Hollywood and Indian films. There is breath-taking action and there are pointless stunts. There is high proficiency acting and there is insult to talent. There is a small component of genuine humour and a large dose of unintentionally silly moments. There is organic unity in the screenplay when you match the ...

Siraj Syed reviews Fuddu: Fuddy Duddy Cuddy in the Nuddy

Siraj Syed reviews Fuddu: Fuddy Duddy Cuddy in the Nuddy You wouldn’t use this f word if you called yourself a gentleman. In their wisdom, the makers of this misbegotten enterprise have named it Fuddu. Heaven knows why. I cannot recall even one occasion in the film when the word as mouthed, probably because the locale is Mumbai and the characters are all from Varanasi, where the culture is anything but Punjabi. Some Punjabis, and maybe Delhi-ites, who revel in the use of colourful langu...

Siraj Syed reviews Tutak Tutak Tutiya: Horromedyance

Siraj Syed reviews Tutak Tutak Tutiya: Horromedyance What binds the Tutak Tutak Tutiya team is their south Indian connection. Most of the actors are either native to the lower regions of the country or got their breaks in films made there, before moving to their base to Mumbai. In addition, the story and direction are also credited to names that live there. It is a tri-lingual film though, milking the opportunity, and hoping to kill three birds with one stone. So, you have Devi in Tamil and A...

On the island of Lampedusa, fate brings Zakaria and Giulia together. He’s an ex-fighter in the Somalian civil war; she’s an Italian tourist on the lam.
