Liff Special Report: Closing Night Red Carpet and Sexy Durga

  • Bollyspice
Parting is such sweet sorrow and none more so than to see the end of the 2017 London Indian Film Festival. After a rollercoaster week’s worth of films, we saw the closing of the London portion of the festival at the BFI Southbank with the English premiere of Sexy Durga.

The night began with a star-studded red carpet event. BollySpice was on hand to mix with the movers and shakers of the Festival. In particular, we caught up with executive and programming director Cary Rajinder Sawhney who had promised at the beginning of the run that this year would be the best ever. We asked him whether he stood by that comment. “In terms of the films? Yes, this has been the best ever. We had such a good selection of films, many from other festivals where they have won awards.”

There were many famous names from the Festival line-up who graced the red carpet.

“A Death in The Gunj: Konkona’s Remarkable Directorial Debut” – A Subhash K Jha Review

  • Bollyspice
A Death In The Gunj

Starring Vikrant Massey, Kalki Koechlin, Ranvir Shorey, Gulshan Devaiah, Tillotama Shome, Om Puri, Tanuja

Written & Directed by Konkona Sen Sharma

It’s hard to define the mood of unrehearsed foreboding and a vague sense of doom that is built into Konkona Sen Sharma’s fragile yet ferocious family-on-a-disastrous-hillstation-holiday film.

If one didn’t know better, one would classify A Death In The Gunj as a whodunit. An Agatha Christie novel condensed into two hours of layered crisp crunchy but seemingly pointless conversations where families on a lazy vacation talk nonsense, play silly games evoking dead spirits (please!) while kids and pets run around in the large crumbling family home as the house-help grumbles about the sudden surge in domestic responsibilities.

It’s a familiar scenario for a tense exploration of fissures and fractures in the joint-family system. Satyajit Ray’s Aranyar Din Ratri, more recently

Mantra Is An Impressive Look At Flawed People – Subhash K Jha review

  • Bollyspice
Starring Rajat Kapoor, Lushin Dubey, Kalki Koechlin, Shiv Pandit, Rohan Joshi

Written & Directed by Nicholas Kharkongor

There is sequence in thus intelligently and sensitively scripted if somewhat choppily executed drama on the fall-out of foreign investment in the Indian economy during the 1990s, where a near-bankrupt entrepreneur Kapil Kapoor, Kk to friends, played by the ever-empathetic Rajat Kapoor, abandons his chauffeur and car on a Delhi highway and hitches a ride with a truck driver.

“Saab, what do you do?” the trucker asks chattily.

“I make blue films,” says the entrepreneur with a straight face.

“You mean people doing it in front of you?” the trucker (played with gusto by Shantanu Anam) is amused and incredulous.

“Yes, and sometimes I’ve to show them what to do,”smirk-sighs the entrepreneur as only Rajat Kapoor knows how.

This is one of the many memorable chance encounters that the script instils into

Alia Bhatt hits back on Kangana Ranaut upon 'nepotism'

  • FilmiPop
Among several other subjects in the industry, nepotism is the latest topic that has been doing rounds, past few weeks. It all started when Kangana Ranaut spoke about how the industry favours those who have a godfather or influential person to watch after your every step and get good opportunities unlike those who struggle to make their mark despite their talent. While Kangana's point does makes sense, Alia Bhatt, however, has something to add to her statement and it is bang on. Alia Speaks Alia, who got her first break in Karan Johar's ‘Student Of The Year’ in 2012, responded to Kangana's nepotism statement which was clearly aimed at star kids and their powerful contacts that help them get into the industry. "I think a star kid can get that first film due to nepotism. But to constantly get films just because you belong to a filmi family, is not possible.
