'Bappa will be back in another 365 days, na?'

'Bappa will be back in another 365 days, na?'

Paloma Sharma/ discovers a group of murti (idol) sellers in Mumbai for whom life comes to a halt with visarjan (immersion).     Past the garish posters of political parties and the patches of lush greenery that threaten to collide with the asphalt, a few metres ahead of Kurar village in Kandivali east (north Mumbai), a long line of tents have suddenly disappeared. The few that are still standing are in the process of wrapping up their wares and vanishing as abruptly as they ..., 2 weeks ago

Band, Baaja, Bappa: It's a grand farewell party

People from all over Maharashtra come to watch the Shivgarjana dhol-tasha band in action. Paloma Sharma/ find out why. As is habitual of fireworks during the festival season, one suddenly goes off somewhere on the busy street, in the middle of the day, sending hundreds of pigeons fleeing for the sky. There are so many of them that they could block the sun, and while this may seem like a wondrous phenomenon to one who is witnessing it for the first time, it is part of everyday life for ...

Review: Lucy is a visual treat

  Lucy could have used more action and a better soundtrack, feels Paloma Sharma.   Luc Besson's Lucy attempts to explore the purpose of life and the limits of the human mind. While it isn't the most original concept we've seen on screen in recent years, Besson crafts it into a completely different ball game.   Lucy stars Scarlett Johansson as the titular character and from the moment that the film opens, you know that this is her show (even Morgan Freeman gets ...

Review: Hercules works because of The Rock!

Hercules has its moments, says Paloma Sharma.From the maker of Mirror, Mirror and Rush Hour, Hercules tells a tale that we've heard once before this year with The Legend of Hercules, but with a thankfully refreshing twist. There is no way to speak of the phenomenon that is Hercules (2014) except by way of comparison. While Hercules, the hero, might be part-mortal, part-God, Hercules, the film, is surely part-The Scorpion King, part-Gladiator, part-Troy and part-The Expendables. Instead of going ...

Review: Begin Again is heartwarming

Begin Again speaks to the viewer like few films have, says Paloma Sharma.Perhaps it is futile to write this. No words I come up with up could do justice to the truth of Begin Again. Nevertheless, I will will give it my best shot. John Carney's Begin Again stars Mark Ruffalo as Dan Mulligan, co-founder of a record label, who has been fired from his job as an A&R agent for not having signed a new artist in over half a decade. Keira Knightley is Greta, a heartbroken songwriter who is more ...

Review: Amit Sahni Ki List doesn't work

Amit Sahni Ki List falters on many counts, says Paloma Sharma.Five minutes into the film and you just know that Amit Sahni ki List is nothing you've ever seen before for a very simple reason -- although Amit Sahni went to IIT and then IIM, he did not go on to become a best selling author. He did, however, write a list. After having his heart broken by his first girlfriend, Natasha -- she's cheating on him (revealed in a scene eerily similar to the one from Hitch), Amit Sahni draws up a list of ...

Review: Dawn of the Planets of the Apes is breathtaking

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes rises above all its predecessors, says Paloma Sharma.First, the simian flu spread. Then the riots happened. If the diseases didn't kill you, the violence will. If not the violence, then the lack of basic amenities. Set almost 10 years after the events of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the film sees humans and apes swap places -- where while humans fight extinction, the ape empire only grows. Caesar (Andy Serkis), leader of the apes, rulesover  his subjects ...

Review: Bobby Jasoos is a very confused film

Bobby Jasoos works only because of Vidya Balan and the strong supporting cast, says Paloma Sharma.Here's a case that Bobby Jasoos needs to solve -- there's film with a beginning and a middle but there is no end. Where did the end go? Bilqis urf Bobby runs her own one-woman detective agency, which sees her running through the Mughalpura mohalla of Old Hyderabad quite often -- sometimes after criminals and other times from them. While her mother Zebo (Supriya Pathak) is encouraging and proud of ...

Review: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For falters with its script

Sin City 2 doesn't quite illicit the same response as the film film, says Paloma Sharma.Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller co-directed sequel to Sin City has come so late that we've almost already forgotten what the first film was like. Sin City and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For have been released almost a decade apart, and while we welcome the return of Miller's unique art direction, the sequel doesn't quite illicit the same response as the first one.Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is made of four ...
