Chehere: A Modern Day Classic, Review: What’s in a name?
Even seven years after it was shot, Chehere: A Modern Day Classic, was unlikely to see even the light of modern day. That it has managed to reach the screen is a miracle, as is the survival of its lead actress, Manisha Koirala, who was battling cancer when the film was almost complete. First screened at the Pravasi Film Festival, New Delhi, in 2010, probably short of a few Manisha scenes, the film was initially titled Badalte Cheh...

Phantom, Review: RAW-hide Rambo
Saif Ali Khan comes in for Salman, Katrina stays put, so do the London locales and the secret agent assassin theme, as director Kabir Khan tries to go one up on his last outing in the genre, Ek Tha Tiger (2012). He has claimed that Tiger was unrealistic, whereas Phantom is close to reality. That claim is highly debatable. Phantom is indeed inspired by real and devastating, events that wreaked terror in Mumbai, in November 2008, killing 167 persons. That does ma...

The COURAGE to be brave
Producer Danny Krausz on CHUCKS
I already got to know the creative originality of the director duo Hiebler-Ertl in their first feature film “nogo,” which I produced in 2000.
Their screenplay for CHUCKS impressed me deeply, and I had a vision that it would make a very good film.
In CHUCKS people face their destinies; there is no complaining. I find that fantastic. I rarely see such figures in our films. They give people –...
EXPECTATION AND CONFORMITY
A Conversation with Cornelia Travnicek
Was there a scene or statement that led you to write the novel CHUCKS?
In hindsight, of course, that’s always hard to say – there’s that nice word “inspiration” that means an idea appears out of nowhere. But the point of departure for me was actually the family constellation behind the main female character. What happens to families who are confronted with these kinds of strokes of f...

ADOLESCENCE as A GLITCH
What fascinated you about the book CHUCKS?
When we first read CHUCKS by Cornelia Travnicek, we were amazed at how many parallels this novel had with our film “Coming of Age”. CHUCKS, too, is about love and death – a thematic combination we simply cannot turn down – and about the overwhelming emotions involved.
Both are love dramas in which the characters grow to meet the challenges they are faced with: The female protagonist breaks...
