The Late Review: Qarib Qarib Singlle

The Late Review: Qarib Qarib Singlle

From the time I saw Sahabzade Irrfan Ali Khan playing Makhdoom Mohiuddin in the DD series Kehkashan in the 90s, and singing, “Ishq ke sholon ko bhadkao ki kuch raat kate ” , I have believed that we have done him injustice by limiting his profile to a histrionics heavy actor. His eyes and silences are […]

Piku: Ray Would Have Approved

Piku: Ray Would Have Approved

Satyajit Ray would have approved (if you disregard the product placements). Shoojit Sarkar goes back to his roots literally and cinematically with Piku, a film about nothing in particular when it trundles, carrying a baggage of eccentricity and family history from Delhi to Kolkata in a taxi. But in retrospect, it is about the little […]

Of Bhardwaj, Gulzar And Haider

Of Bhardwaj, Gulzar And Haider

When I was a kid I had a favorite TV show, called Jungle Book. It was a time when India and Doordarshan had good shows, even animations or adaptations. Jungle Book was an animation of the celebrated book ( directed by none other that  Fumio Kurokawa) and since the book was written in India, perhaps […]

A Lunchbox Full Of Longing

A Lunchbox Full Of Longing

There is this moment in Ritesh Batra’s The Lunchbox where Irrfan Khan’s Saajan Fernandez says a name aloud for the first time. And it reminds one of Jess C. Scott’s famous quote, “When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You know that your name is safe in their mouth.” He […]

Paan Singh Tomar: Guts And Glory

Paan Singh Tomar: Guts And Glory

This Saturday morning, I walked into a multiplex to watch Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Paan Singh Tomar to find exactly 10 people in the hall. It did not matter. The emptiness around me filled up the moment Brijendra Kalay’s brilliantly shifty, stuttering scribe came face to face with the erstwhile national steeple chase champion, army Subedar and current baaghi, or […]

The Man of Nuances

The Man of Nuances

 Kathryn Shattuck, a writer with The New York Times describes Irrfan Khan’s widely acclaimed appearance in the HBO series In Treatment thus, “Mr Khan, familiar in this country from the movies The Namesake and Slumdog Millionaire, and something of an idol in his own, has applied his soulful gaze and talent for nuance to the role […]

Feeding The Fame Goddess

Feeding The Fame Goddess

Recently a small box in an entertainment supplement of a leading newspaper, claimed that actress Rani Mukherjee would be honoured with the Dada Saheb Phalke Award. Rani reportedly said, “I’m happy that people have loved my film (No One Killed Jessica) and my work. I have always let my work do the talking and I guess I have proved to […]

Mission Statement

Who are we? We are writers. And here, in this space, we put pride and passion back into writing. We give ourselves and each other creative freedom and respect.

* We create an environment where content generation does not entail degeneration of inspiration and spirit.
* 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!"
