My thoughts after watching Gitanjali Rao’s animated film, Bombay Rose.
My notes from the Singapore South Asian International Film Festival 2017 and a panel discussion involving Adoor Gopalakrishnan, Girish Kasaravalli, Leena Yadav and Prasanna Vithanage.
You can’t really point out and say that this film is about the father, the mother or the son. It’s peppered with lots of little but memorable characters.
Thoughts on a recent interaction session with Anurag Kashyap and Black Friday.
One of the key parts for the machinery of male chauvinism to operate in India, is women themselves.
Ray has absolutely no hurry in narrating the story. It’s a relief to watch his films after all the swishes and jittery cuts of modern cinema.
To me this shot seemed symbolic of life in the city. Of people clinging onto something steady, in a world where things move fast and anything could topple any moment.
