Aamir, Nasir, Tahir, Tariq, Mansoor, Amjad: Movies, Masti, Modernity, Flashback 7

Aamir, Nasir, Tahir, Tariq, Mansoor, Amjad: Movies, Masti, Modernity, Flashback 7 To remind you, Aamir is indeed Aamir Khan, Amjad is definitely Gabbar Singh, and the triple M above is to acknowledge that it was Akshay Manwani’s biographical book on the cinema of Nasir Hussain that got me delving into the period of about 15 years, when I interacted with the Hussain Khans (first five) and the bare Khan (last, but the most imposing personality). Actually, Mansoor did not use his middle na...

Siraj Syed reviews Anaarkali of Arrah: Item girl--“Spite ’em girl, Bite ’em girl”

Siraj Syed reviews Anaarkali of Arrah: Item girl--“Spite ’em girl, Bite ’em girl” Ten minutes into this loud and raw film, you know you will root for the protagonist, an item girl plying her art in Arrah, a small town in the eastern Indian state of Bihar. An item girl is a woman who wears garish costumes, sings, dances, cavorts, titillates and tantalises on stage, to a public, sing-along audience, that joins her full-of-double-entendre lyrics, lusts after her and drool...

Local Newspaper Chronicles Determination Of Filmmaker Hawk

The Cheshire Herald ran a two page story about the film making determination of a local independent filmmaker, James W. Hawk. An enlarged copy of that story which is easier to read than the reproduction below can be accessed with this link:  Link to the article: (https://www.buzzfeed.com/jameswhawk/local-newspaper-chronicles-determination-of-filmma-2sm4o?utm_term=.vkVopA4Zo#.fs1vVlJRv)   The writer and editor of The Cheshire Herald, John Rook did the article in ...

Siraj Syed reviews Mantra: Travails and travesties

Siraj Syed reviews Mantra: Travails and travesties In one scene of Mantra, the protagonist, a Delhi industrialist called KK (Kapil Kapoor) who is about to sell his bleeding chips-manufacturing business to his cash-rich multi-national rival, finds a Frenchman looking for a drug (of the smoking kind) and the two manage to find a dealer named Rahul. On a high, the man tells the Frenchman that the Beatles have split. Nothing wrong in breaking such news to a pot-partner, even if the guy happens to...

Siraj Syed reviews Machine: Misguided Machinations and Mechanical Malfunction

Siraj Syed reviews Machine: Misguided Machinations and Mechanical Malfunction Abbas Burmawalla-Mustan Burmawalla are a director-brother duo that gave an early hit to Indian Superstar ShaRukh Khan in the shape of Baazigar (Player/Gambler). Khan, never averse to accepting negative parts, lapped it up in delight, and a hit ensued. All those who cried foul, that the film was plagiarised from A Kiss before Dying, were mere spectators as the film, and its dizzy, snazzy sound-track jingled at the bo...

Straddling between different genres-Malayalam cinema director Dr.Biju and his films by Mr.Lalit Rao [FIPRESCI]

The world of cinema is full of surprises. One needs to learn the intricacies involved with this art in order to transform words into images. Hence, it is not so often that an ordinary layman can think of embarking on a creative journey in order to become a filmmaker merely by watching some good Iranian and Turkish films shown at film festivals. However, Bijukumar Damodaran is a very strong exception to this rule. In his native Kerala, South India, he is more commonly known as Dr.Biju. &n...

Documentary Film Review-“When the Sun didn’t rise” directed by Teena Kaur Pasricha.

In recent times, if one were to discuss key events related to politics and society in India, most people are likely to evoke the assassination of Indian prime minister Mrs. Indira Gandhi in 1984 by her Sikh bodyguards and subsequent violence perpetrated against Sikh community in Indian subcontinent. It was a grim chapter of post independence Indian history when old friends turned into mortal foes. These two tragic events form the backdrop of a new Indian documentary film “When the sun di...

New Directors/New Films: "Menashe"

Menashe, the title of Joshua Weinstein’s fiction feature debut, could just as easily been called Schlimazel. Set amid the Hasidic quarter of Borough Park, Brooklyn, it follows the eponymous character as he navigates serial misfortune. His wife Leah died nearly a year ago; his low-paid grocery store job is on the line; and his lax approach to tradition puts him out of step with the rabbi (Meyer Schwartz) and community.   However, the worst may be yet to come: losing custody of...

“Nocturama”: Auteurism Meets Terrorism at Rendez-Vous with French Cinema

  Paris is burning. It’s been set ablaze by a dozen disaffected millennials in Bertrand Bonello’s new film Nocturama. As the City of Light succumbs to dark acts, we’re left to wonder: Who are these young terrorists? How did they come together? What are they fighting for? It’s all up for heated debate, which is surely one reason why the Film Society of Lincoln Center and UniFrance included Nocturama in the 22nd annual Rendez-Vous with Frenc...
