The famous song Modi cited in Toronto

Nishi Tiwari draws the connections between a Modi line and a celebrated film song. Narendra Modi often quotes Swami Vivekananda in his speeches. In Toronto on Wednesday, April 15, the prime minister cited a line from Kavi Pradeep. Yup, the poet who wrote the song that made one of his predecessors weep when Lata Mangeshkar sang that song after the 1962 war with China.But it was not Aye Mere Watan Ke Logon, whose anniversary Modi commemorated in Mumbai last year that the PM mentioned. It was a ... Rediff.com, 1 week ago

Review: Dirty Politics is a waste of time

Dirty Politics is a garbled mess, warns Nishi Tiwari.If I had to describe KC Bokadia’s Mallika Sherawat starrer Dirty Politics in internet parlance, I’d say it’s a typical troll plagued with false idealism. It froths at the mouth at little to no provocation, launches into buffoonish tirades against its targets, completely misses the point, and, in the end, is reduced to nothing but serving as comic relief. Dirty Politics opens with a laughable sense of urgency.  The shaky ...

Review: Rahasya is a clever whodunit

Atmospheric chills and a good story your thing? Watch Rahasya, suggests Nishi Tiwari. When Dr Rajesh and his wife Nupur emerged as prime suspects in the 2008 twin murders of their teen daughter Aarushi and their domestic help Hemraj, the news made nationwide headlines. While the media chased the story with a rare doggedness, readers were instantly hooked and lapped up every salacious detail of the case that unraveled like the perfect whodunit. Only this was all real. While after many ...

'Sanskrit had become more a symbol than a language'

'On both sides of our cultural divide, it roused strong emotions that had very little to do with the language and its literature.' 'I felt Sanskrit had been removed from the realm of thought, and made an object of politics and piety, of oppression, of reverence and contempt.' 'It was my aim to avoid these things, and go straight to the language which, as an object for the mind, is among the most exquisite ever made.' Aatish Taseer first rose to prominence with his translation of Saadat Hasan ...

Review: Hawaizaada is a flight of fancy that fails to take off

Thanks to the film’s half-baked treatment, it is reduced to appearing like a flight of fancy of an impulsive wastrel than an ambitious dream of a strong-willed genius, writes Nishi Tiwari. Towards the end of Vibhu Puri’s directorial debut Hawaizaada, the protagonist Shivkar Bapuji Talpade (Ayushmann Khurrana) is bidding his sister-in-law farewell before he finally takes flight. “Tum ja rahe ho (You’re leaving)?” the teary-eyed bhabhi asks him. He nods yes.
