• Tamasha review: Deepika is luminous, Ranbir is powerful but this Imtiaz Ali film is neither - Firstpost

    Imtiaz Ali and Ranbir Kapoor’s second collaborative effort, Tamasha, is a bit of an enigma. It reveals less about its two protagonists than it withholds. It is tightfisted about emotional outflow. But still creates a very dramatic case history for its protagonists. Many parts of the film read (and I deliberately use this word in place of ‘look’) like newly-done miniature paintings posted on ancient walls that have many stories to tell…the walls, not the newly placed paintings. A quality of newly-assumed angst hovers over the lives of the protagonists, Ved and Tara, who are wretchedly unhappy in the way Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone could never be in their last outing together.

  • ‘Hang Ujjal Dosanjh for treason before charging Aamir Khan with sedition’

    Aamir shared his pain and anxiety about the "disquiet...despondency" abroad the land of India. For that he has been charged with sedition. It is shocking that in today's Indian democracy, an Indian - be it Aamir, Shah Rukh or Girish Karnad - can't freely discuss their feelings and ideas without being threatened bodily harm and death, told to leave the country or charged with sedition. No Indian - Modi, Aamir or any other - needs to prove his/her patriotism.

  • ‘Thanks for stopping by, Rahul Gandhi. You were inspiring’

    Those ‘No Ragging’ posters you vaguely see around educational institutions could be put to good use this week. They must all be collected and sent to Indian media houses country-wide. It has arisen to be the need of the hour, considering the events of November 25, 2015 - the day we would fondly remember as 'Mr. Rahul Gandhi's visit to Mount Carmel College'. If I had a few hashtags to throw around, they would be on the lines of #Misconstrued and #Exaggerated.

  • Liquor ban in Bihar: Nitish Kumar’s poll promise to women comes at a high cost

    When the first phase of the Bihar assembly polls made it clear that women had outvoted men, political pundits looked into the reasons for it. Another reason was Nitish Kumar being able to create a constituency - a caste neutral one - among women in an otherwise casteist Bihar. Bicycle scheme for girls, 50 per cent reservation for women in panchayats, a gender budget and several women-centric moves have earned Nitish Kumar instant popularity.

  • In search of Egypt's lost Queen Nefertiti, focus on King Tut's tomb

    By Eric Knecht LUXOR, Egypt (Reuters) - Chances are high that the tomb of Ancient Egypt's boy-king Tutankhamun has passages to a hidden chamber, which may be the last resting place of Queen Nefertiti, and new evidence from the site will go to Japan for analysis, experts said on Saturday. Nefertiti, thought to have been Tutankhamun's stepmother, died in the 14th century BC, and discovery of her final resting place would be the most remarkable Egyptian archaelogical find this century. British Egyptologist Nicholas Reeves announced plans for further investigations at a news conference with Egyptian Antiquities Minister Mamdouh al-Damaty, who said data would be taken to Japan for study and that chances were high that a chamber exists.
