Osian’s Cinefan 2012 Review: Arvind Iyer’s “Drapchi”

Osian’s Cinefan 2012 Review: Arvind Iyer’s “Drapchi”
Drapchi. For the uninitiated, a lyrical-sounding word. But for those who have been inside it, Drapchi is one of the most-dreaded places on the earth. Drapchi is the name of Lhasa’s Prison No. 1, the largest in Tibet. Converted from a Tibetan military garrison into a prison following the 1959 Tibetan uprising (officially it was made into a prison in 1965) and the flight of the Dalai Lama to India, it is where most of the political prisoners of Tibet are incarcerated. Tibetan exile groups have often alleged brutal excesses committed by the Chinese jail personnel on the inmates.

But now, the word Drapchi has another meaning too. It is the name of a new movie directed by indie filmmaker Arvind Iyer, and starring famous Tibetan singer Namgyal Lhamo. The 77-minute movie is an interesting experiment in filmmaking. It uses the format of a docu-fiction, with the characters barely speaking to each

Agent Vinod Movie Review

One of the major reasons why Agent Vinod was on the buzz circuit was because of director Sriram Raghavan. Having given us two wonderful thrillers before – Ek Hasina Thi and Johnny Gaddaar – we hoped that Sriram would complete his trilogy with this one. So does he manage to awe us once again with his style of story-telling?

Saif Ali Khan aka Agent Vinod is a secret Indian Raw (research and analysis wing) agent who is on a mission to trace a deadly object, the identity of which even he doesn’t know. Along the chase he meets Iram (Kareena Kapoor), a Pakistani, accused of a bomb blast, who seems to have an agenda of her own but joins hands with Vinod for his mission.

Let me be frank. Agent Vinod is a mash up of sequences seen from umpteen Bond, Bourne and other series; you can figure out the inspirations
