“Bharat Is A Flawed But Monumental Achievement” – A Subhash K JhaReview

Bharat

Starring Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Sunil Grover, Disha Patani, Jackie shroff

Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar

It’s easy to be dismissive of a film that has no formal structure, one which doesn’t compartmentalize life’s flow… but chooses to go with it. The flow, I mean.

But then again,it takes almost three hours of playing time for us to realize that Bharat is no small achievement. Like Sultan before this, director Ali Abbas Zafar doesn’t hesitate in blowing open Salman Khan’s image of the Superstar who always plays variations of himself.

In some of the sequences in this episodic endearing oddball off a film Salman invests genuine emotions. Watch him closely in the sequence where he is reunited with his sister whom he has lost in the tumult of India’s Partition in two badly divided halves. Salman achieves great heights of emotionalism in

Film Review: ‘The Black Godfather’

Film Review: ‘The Black Godfather’
On first glance, Clarence Avant’s career highlights seem impressive, if somewhat modest for a man widely known as “the godfather of black music.” Starting as a manager to pianist-composer Lalo Schifrin, he went on to found two important if short-lived independent record labels, serve as a sporadic concert organizer and special events producer, fund-raise for Democratic politicians, and count himself as a mentor to a host of African American execs. But the 88-year-old’s impact on half a century of black music – and black enterprise in general – runs far, far deeper than that, and Reginald Hudlin’s affectionate Netflix bio-doc “The Black Godfather” does yeoman’s work introducing a figure that few outsiders have likely heard of, but who needs no introduction in the power corridors of the entertainment industry.

Perhaps the most obvious sign of Avant’s importance can be found in a brief look through the figures

The major release of the week, Hollywood?s Godzilla II?King Of The Monsters, did manage to dominate the Indian releases (Nakkash and Naughty Gang etc.) but failed to embark even on a satisfactory start.

And with Salman?s Bharat releasing mid week, the chances of Godzilla II diminish further.?

Meanwhile, both the releases of last week, Vivek Oberoi?s topical Pm Narendra Modi and Arjun Kapoor?s India?S Most Wanted, failed to impress at the box-office.

Interview: 'Diamantino' directors on queer influences, genre twists, and Pekingese puppies

by Murtada Elfadl

The balancing of many different tones differentiates Diamantino, which just opened in theaters after a hit run at Cannes last year. It's a satire, an allegory, a rom-com and a fantasy -- all of those things in one yet it all jells. Co-directors Gabriel Abrantes and Daniel Schmidt kept all these different balls in the air. The story is absolutely bonkers. Let’s see if we can get it straight with the help of the official synopsis:

Portuguese soccer hunk Diamantino blows it in the World Cup finals, he goes from superstar to laughing stock overnight. His sheltered worldview is further shattered after learning about the European refugee crisis and he resolves to make amends by adopting an African refugee – only to find that his new “son” is actually an undercover lesbian tax auditor investigating him on the suspicion of corruption. From there, Diamantino gets swept up
