“If the film is worth anything, it will find an audience”

“If the film is worth anything, it will find an audience”

Actor-director Rajat Kapoor contradicts the cliches of fame without saying a word.The three time National Award winner’s body of work speaks for him and also for his need to create content that does not necessarily conform to commercial stipulations. It is easy to see why in a star-driven business, it would be tough for an independent […]






Those Who ‘Defend’ History Know Nothing About It

Those Who ‘Defend’ History Know Nothing About It

Those who filmed themselves proudly as they broke cameras, vandalised property and beat up Sanjay Leela Bhansali on the sets of Padmavati know nothing about the culture they claim to be protecting. So let us begin with a slice of history. With the story of a man who was a devout Muslim and a bhakt […]






No, Neerja Is Not About Sonam Kapoor

No, Neerja Is Not About Sonam Kapoor

*Now the world knows Neerja Bhanot’s story, all thanks to Sonam Kapoor’s realistic and apt portrayal of Neerja. *It’s Sonam Season In Bollywood. Neerja is turning out to be for Sonam what Queen, Cocktail and Paa were for some of her peers. The question was always going to be, can Sonam Kapoor, carry off that demanding […]






‘I Will Never Ignore The Voice Within’

‘I Will Never Ignore The Voice Within’

The imperishable memories Shweta Tripathi gathered while playing a small-town girl in Neeraj Ghaywan’s Masaan include the night when she sobbed over the end of a beautiful story. She recalls, “I cried not for what was happening to my character  but for what was happening to her story with Deepak. I just lay, looking up […]






Dia Mirza: Repression Causes Gender Violence

Dia Mirza: Repression Causes Gender Violence

Just a few days before December 16, the second anniversary of the Nirbhaya tragedy, actor, producer and activist Dia Mirza was in town. The Uber rape case was on her mind, as were the sexual crimes against young girls in Bengaluru’s schools. She said, “What kind of man rapes a woman… a little girl? This […]






The Many Seasons Of Gulzar

The Many Seasons Of Gulzar

   In his world, trees are ancestors, rivers are mumbling old men, pines  are charcoal sketches, mountains are Christmas cards painted in water-colours. Children running down hill slopes are fruits spilling out of baskets, rain is a rude intruder pounding on doors with wet knuckles , snow in Manali is a stealthy interloper that takes […]






Firing A Blank

Firing A Blank

Editor’s note: Proceed with caution..spoilers ahead! I had the good fortune of investing three hours of my hitherto worthless life in edifying myself when friends propelled me to a show of Gunday. I learnt that the Indian Police is so diabolically clever that they can lay an intricately plotted conspiracy to rival the best of Ludlums and John […]






An Evening With Salman Rushdie

An Evening With Salman Rushdie

There are so many versions of him. The Salman Rushdie present  at Bangalore’s Taj West End tonight however was someone tangible. Someone who with great ease settled in an uncomfortable chair on the podium, not aware or maybe aware of the discreet logistics and forbidding security measures that had finally made his presence possible in […]






Imagine..

Imagine..

In a world where a random shooting spree  can take away 20 young lives in a school,  what do we need from not just our law makers, law enforcers, politicians but our musicians, artists, writers, film makers?  Through the ages, the arts have been the humans spirit’s escape from intolerance and violence. For cinema, music, […]






The Story So Far

The Story So Far

Serendipity often irrevocably alters preordained lives. Mona Ambegaonkar, of the fiercely intelligent eyes and a face like a living memory, for instance was going to study science and could not have imagined that one day she would become chief assistant director of Shekhar Kapoor’s Mr India. Or a model, writer, producer and director of documentaries, an actor working with renowned […]






AK Hangal : The Genial Memory Maker

AK Hangal : The Genial Memory Maker

One of my favourite AK Hangal performances is that of a smiling, chess obsessed patriarch in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Guddi. He has a little room to himself at the entrance of the home that he shares with his son, his daughter-in-law and a teenaged daughter played by Jaya Bhaduri. All the old man lives for is a […]






Bidding For Cinema..

Bidding For Cinema..

  In the first ever Osian’s Cinefan Film Festival auction of Indian cinema memorabilia, held at Imperial Hotel in Delhi last evening, Aamir Khan won the bid of as many as six rare cinematic items, as he set another precedent and became the first collector from the film industry. Over a telecom bid, in tandem […]

* We create content that we believe in and identify with.
* We recognise that to create is always of more value than to berate.
*We critique without malice and arrogance.

This site is about us writers, what we stand for but more importantly, about creating something valuable, inclusive, thought-provoking. In this space, we do not just stand for ourselves but for all those who listen to a compelling inner voice that tells them, "Create!"
