India’s official entry to Oscar is Newton.
That makes you thing to watch the film..? Yes, right ?
The answer is NO.
Announcing it as an official entrant to Oscar may well be a nice marketing strategy to attract the audience. A movie which should have a empty theatre was houseful.
The movie has revolves around a single plot relating to elections in rural / adivasi areas.
Rajkumar Rao acts brilliantly and succeeds to IRRITATE you on a large extent.
Newton (aka Nutan Kumar aka RajKumar) is a honest government employee. He oversees the election process in a remote Indian village with the problem Naxalites in the area.
The movie fails to maintain any relation with the problem actually faced in such situation. It rather portrays image of an officer on election duty rather than highlighting the issue behind the voting in such areas.
The movie doesn’t make you hold your seat for very long.

Tuesday’s with Morrie is a special book for me, as it relates to my personnel life as well.
The book is about a ill proffessor (Morrie) who knows he’s critical and can see his stairway to heaven approach near as each day pass by. Author (Mitch Albom) was once a student of Morrie. He in the glitters and struggles of life had never met Morrie again after graduating from college until he suddenly saw him on TV one day, describing about his illness and showing people his spirt.
Mitch decides to meet Morrie every Tuesday’s until that day when he is no more. The book describes each Tuesday Mitch spends with Morrie, learning about way of life from a dying man, seeing his condition fall down week by week, month by month until one fine day Morrie passes away.
The reason why I can relate this book with my personnel life is cause of my grandfather. I have seen him pass through same ordeal, have seen stages of his life travelling towards the end during his illness.
The book completely changed my vision, it made a better observer knowing whats to come at the end of the story. Somewhere down inside I knew what is the end, but the book gave me the patience and also a sense of awareness to react to my grandfather’s falling health.
I aslo contacted Mr. Mitch on twitter and thanked him for the wonderful experience his writing provided to me. He obliged and offered his condolences to my grieving.

The movie moves around 1990’s with a thrilling investigation plot and classic rivalry of a gangsters and policemen. Arjun Rampal tries to make an impact with his cold hearted approach but in vain.
Arun Gawli, once a nothing, a son of a jobless mill worker, makes his way from being a gangster to politician. Daddy portraits the larger than life of Arun Gawli and his gangstardom.
The film is suitable for those who have a fair idea about what Mumbai was back in late 1980’s and beginning of 1990’s.
Arjun Rampal tried his level best but is not 100% when it comes to making his audience believe that he himself is the famous gangster turned politician.
The film also has many confusing time travels, from way back in 1989 to 2012.
With many other famous personalities named in the movie, one can only correlate if they have a fair idea of what happened during the Gawli case.
The movie is self depicting crime investigation movie which will not resist much in box office.

We had different choices of new releases but we went for Baadshao.
Milan Lutharia came up with another typical Once Upon A Time movie but this time it fails to make an impact.
Movie also terribly fails to impress any audience inspite of its star cast.
It lacks story line, and the director itself looses the plot in the end not knowing where to end the story.
Ajay Devgn tries to lift the movie with his presence but in vain, in fact his typical acting lacks any charm and brings boredom.
Every sport is known by its player.
Indian cricket for a long time has been defined by different era’s which lift the cricketing spirit of the whole nation.
- Sunil Gavaskar
- Kapil Dev
- Sachin Tendulkar
- Sourav Gangugly
- Mahindra Singh Dhoni
- Virat Kohli.
These 6 Have had a significant impact in building what we now call as INDIAN CRICKET TEAM.
They defined Era’s on their own.
- From being recognised as the best batsman in the world (Sunil Gavaskar) to making India win world cup trophy (Kapil Dev).
- From being the God of Cricket (Sachin Tendulkar) to bringing aggression and positivity as a captain in India (Sourav Ganguly).
The current ERA is defined by 2 of the greats: Mahindra Singh Dhoni & Virat Kolhi.
Mahindra Singh Dhoni completes 300 ODI matches.
His achivements speak more than he ever does.
Virat Kohli transformed himself from a arrogant Delhi boy to a world class batsmen with the combined skill of leadership.
Virat Kohli is now 3rd highest with 29 centuries, only behind Ricky Pointing (30) and far way from Sachin Tendulkar (49)
Indian cricket with these players are certainly favourites for
ICC World Cup 2019.
Let’s hope for the best.

Through out my childhood I have never ever read a single book (except the ones which I had to read to study.)
Shiva Trilogy by Amish, is the first ever book which made me sit hours on a stretch and made me read all 3 parts of the series.
I just love the way the book was written, it kept me guessing what the next part would be. It made me think that I am watching a movie in front of me with the characters alive in front of me.
Ideology of the great Mahadev Shiva is so beautifully depicted in the book that inclines you to think and act according to the characters.
The reason for me to start reading books will always be the shiva Trilogy and I recommend any of you reading this to at least once start reading the 1st book and rest will leave up to you.
Great work Amish sir..!!

We stay in a big and vast universe with millions and trillions of people in it. We all are in search of love, but we first need to understand and learn to love our own self before asking others to love you.
When you love your own self, your soul has the power to heal, to go through different experiences be it up’s or down’s. This makes you strong enough to trust others and love them.
Through the up’s you need to maintain your attitude and help others while during your down’s you need to maintain your dignity and identify your mistakes and correct them.
To be able to correct yourself is the most difficult thing. You need the heart to accept your own mistake.
To love yourself means to be able to learn from yourself, talk to yourself, be a soul who is open to changes, open to adopt and improvise and once you have done that the world will be a different place. Your vision will change and it will bring a prospect to your thinking.
Be the change you want to see in others and life will be easy.
I don’t know who said that but it works, worth a try…!.!.!.!!.

We Indian’s are used to leave in whatever ways we are, learning to adjust and learning to apply JUGGAD for all our problems. But Juggad is not the solution of all our problems.
This movie highlights some core Indian rural issues of being able to excrete behind closed doors and highlights the issues of society with a typical mindset. Women privicay being the main motive, the film highlights the issues and problems faced by going for sanitation in public areas.
Storyline and direction has been up to the mark and thers no unwanted distraction from the issue throghout the movie. Though at sometime it feels the movies is a bit slow and lagging the intent to solve the issue, but it takes off when needed.
Akshay Kumar has always been up to the mark and his stars are in right place now, he acts brilliantly in the films and takes the whole movie in his hands.
Bhumi Pednekar also manages to act being the sole of the movie.
Direction: Shree Narayan Singh

Strange but true…sometimes even technology can’t do things which are so essential but yet missing. It has thousands of way to make you connected but I cannot make the feeling come alive, it can give you the essence of presence pf someone but it cannot bring the touch come alive.
So close but so far, making a video call to a beloved person in some other state or country , you fell so close to them yet across the boundaries. Human touch can only be felt by personel presence.
We think so different, we as a human caste have a vivid thinking. Often we wait for the a moment to come true but when the moment arrives we let them pass by, a sense of satisfaction is hard to achieve.
Today we pass by a trip which had lots of fun and togeatherness but yet the absence of someone is counted.
A trip which will be much longer remembered with friends is always a hardship to let go. As it comes to end now we look by the journey where some are missed and some with you, the fun continuous, life continues.

Often you discover something so unique that you hold on that for a long time. That thought, the thinking and the feeling always stays with you.
I dedicate this short sharing of my memories to my friends, my best friends, without whom life would be so different and difficult.
Today we return from one of our beloved friends engagement ceremony. The ones whom we have seen grow in their relation from when they started. Life’s unite as they tie a bond to share their next 7 lives with each other.
For us who have witnessed their love grow from something that we thought would never be possible, it’s a feeling which brings tears of joy in our eyes.
Past 2 days we where in a remote Indian village where the ceremony was to be conducted, the hype was always more to be a part of such a ceremony.
In such town with some lovely people I feel I am blessed to have this life.
The night where the entire family come togeather and have a laugh, love, tease, play, share and care you fell too low in front of all. It makes us realize what family is.
I often think, why can’t we all stay togeather always.? Why can’t my family and families of those I love stay togeather..? Y can’t I make a place such beautiful where all come togeather and share the joy of this life.
As I leave myself with such questions. I wish my friends a very very happy and successful life and at same time wish this day, moment, feeling and love always stay with me till I take my last breath.
A part my feeling in the image, where thoughts are so wide, it can seen till your eyes can cover
