No Place For ‘Nakaabil’ Folks In Hindi Cinema

No Place For ‘Nakaabil’ Folks In Hindi Cinema

Ordinary people do not interest Hindi cinema anymore and that is why even if Mani Ratnam’s artifice free protagonists from OK Kanmani (who did not think it was necessary to interrupt their love story to endorse Vero Moda, Coca Cola and Anita Dongre’s wedding wear) are channelled in Ok Jaanu (a Karan Johar production), they […]






Befikre: Cold Like A Bowl Of Cereal

Befikre: Cold Like A Bowl Of Cereal

It is official. The award for the most unlikable male character of 2016 will be shared by Ranbir Kapoor’s Ayan in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Ranveer Singh’s Dharam in Befikre. These are clueless boys with the emotional and intellectual depth of a nine-year-old with the tumultuous hormones of a teenager and are paired with […]






No, Karan Johar Did Not Sell The Nation, We Did  

No, Karan Johar Did Not Sell The Nation, We Did  

How easy it is to judge folks whose shoes we have not walked in. The largely lonely battle Karan Johar fought to save his film from hyper nationalist bullies and his desperate video which I could not bring myself to watch, the patriotism tax of Rs five crore and the backlash that followed did not […]






Beyond Karan Johar And The Politics Of Barbed Wire

Beyond Karan Johar And The Politics Of Barbed Wire

  American satirist Sarah Silverman recently sat down with New Yorker’s editor Andy Borowitz  and said that Trump was infact a mirror of a section of the American society that believes in the xenophobic, narrow version of American nationalism. A nationalism that hates, excludes and wants to always be ‘Number One.” In what she asked, […]






The Unaccountable Frat Brothers of Bollywood

The Unaccountable Frat Brothers of Bollywood

While channel surfing a few days back, I saw Mika Singh punning upon Diana Penty’s surname and adding to good effect, “And Mika Kaccha!” I guarantee that you will not hear anyone in the film fraternity rising up in instinctive disgust over this comment just as most of them kept quiet when Salman Khan rose […]






Kapoor & Sons: Bitter, Sweet And Truthful

Kapoor & Sons: Bitter, Sweet And Truthful

Watching Shakun Batra’s Kapoor & Sons (Since 1921) is like reading a book you are slowly but surely falling in love with. A book that you read curled up in a window seat on a rainy day, with a cup of tea by your side, hoping that the story will never end because it makes you taste […]






Bombay Velvet: Inspired Madness

Bombay Velvet: Inspired Madness

The closest we came to hearing jazz in a Hindi film in the ‘70s, was when Amitabh Bachchan’s dock-worker turned underworld apprentice Vijay, smoked away his foreboding in a bar; and Parveen Babi in a red gown slithered close to him with ‘I am falling in love with stranger’ playing in the background. The film […]






Of Rainbows and Purple Skies

Of Rainbows and Purple Skies

Purple Skies, a documentary about lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders was recently screened at the Bangalore Queer Film Festival and  the film’s  director Sridhar Rangayan, also a profound thought leader of the LGBT movement and a conversation starter as far as gay rights go in India, was in town.  When the award-winning filmmaker, editor of India’s […]






The Woman Who Styled Legends

The Woman Who Styled Legends

In Milan Lutheria’s Once Upon a Time in Mumbai, a female protagonist relived the ultimate male fantasy of the 70s by wearing a knotted and polka-dotted Bobby blouse. The nostalgia for Bobby is so strong that when Twinkle or Tina Khanna was styled for her debut film Barsaat, she wore minis and blouses inspired from […]






DDLJ’s Dulhaniya Gets Spunky

DDLJ’s Dulhaniya Gets Spunky

It is easy to imagine Karan Johar sitting at the edit of the films he produces and telling the director, “A wedding song right here…and here. A club song too, right at this moment when the audience is beginning to get convinced that the heroine is really from Ambala and the boy, an ordinary drifter […]






Love Beyond Gender

Love Beyond Gender

Society in India is coming of age. It has begun to openly acknowledge the word ‘gay,’  before kids and in movies etc. Unfortunately our minds are not open enough to accommodate and treat the gay community with the same respect that we accord to heterosexuals. There is a subtle stigma attached to this word which […]






Infamy As Fame

Infamy As Fame

Guilt today is a global media event. So when Lance Armstrong finally answered the big question about his integrity in the widely televised interview with a, “I’m not the most believable guy in the world right now,” Oprah Winfrey almost brought back her under-performing OWN network from the brink. Lance could have given a newspaper […]

* 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!"
