Jayhaan: Mobed by Day & DJ by Night

Jehan Bhesania, better known by his stage name ‘Jayhaan’ is a priest by day and a DJ by night. His budding career in music has already spearheaded the entry of Jersey Club in India which was previously alien to the Indian Music Industry. Using this momentum, he is changing the face of electronic music by fusing the sounds of Western Jersey Club, bass music and trap, with Indian instruments and melodies. People often talk about a mid-life crisis, but seldom do we hear of the very real identi...

Exclusive: In a first, Netflix censors Hollywood film in India, cuts Kashmir from Mission Impossible: Fallout

You’re reading it here first: Netflix has censored a Hollywood film in India, removing mentions and maps of Kashmir from Mission Impossible: Fallout. This is a first for the platform in India. While this is the version of the film that was released in theatres in India, it’s noteworthy that Netflix took an unusual step of releasing this censored version online, on its platform, as well.

Lost in the Shallows

So I finally saw ‘Dear Zindagi’ (after invoking it for the sake of my column last Sunday), and I was appalled. The one kind of Bollywood film I abhor is a shallow faux-serious movie, which is exactly what this is—give me honest escapism over this any day. Before I didn’t like about it, here’s what I did like: 1. Alia is brilliant in the film, such an exceptional actress. She’s blown me away before in ‘Kapoor and Sons’ and “Udta Punjab’, the only two other films of her that I’ve seen. Unlike so ...

Review of UDTA PUNJAB

Reams of paper, Tons of ink, hundreds of megabytes were spent discussing Udta Punjab, thanks to controversy surrounding the ‘Cuts’ as desired by CBFC before granting certification.  Most of the articles were pushed around by people who actually had not even watched the film and then the usual ‘Sheep’ started sharing those stories after adding their unsolicited comments and opinions. Then came a tsunami of reviews, almost hours after release of the movie, as if some of them wer...

Using Snapchat Filters to Report On Sexual Abuse Survivors

Yusuf Omar is a cellphone trailblazer. He finds unconventional uses for apps like Snapchat, Facebook Live, and 360 video for telling serious news stories, most of which are viewed on small screens. Omar is the new mobile editor at the Hindustan Times, one of India's largest English newspapers, with a print circulation of more than 1 million, and is bringing 750 journalists up to speed about what works best on mobile.

Review: Udta Punjab: A focused script and solid performances!!! ***½

1451st BLOG POST -->> UDTA PUNJAB: 3.5/5         When I was reading good reviews of Uta Punjab after it released amidst all the controversies and an unfortunate online leak, I thought people are doing it just out of sympathy or because they are die-hard BJP fans who are trying to prove their minister right. Finally, I got chance to watch the movie yesterday and I am still thinking about the sad affairs of a state in India where the addiction of drugs is so high that people are losing the...

Movie Review: Udta Punjab

(Any opinions expressed here are those of the author and not of Thomson Reuters) In the dark of the night, a scooter splutters along a bumpy road. It stops and three men get off. One wears a sports jersey with ‘Pakistan’ printed on it and swivels his arms before flinging a packet across a barbed wire fence. That packet lands in a field in India’s Punjab and sets into motion events that form the crux of Abhishek Chaubey‘s “Udta Punjab“. In Chaubey’s film, it would seem such packets are raining do...

Q&A with composer Amit Trivedi on ‘Udta Punjab’

In nearly a decade of composing for Hindi films, Amit Trivedi has kept his music fresh and evolving. A self-confessed fan of A. R. Rahman, Trivedi’s scores for “Kai Po Che“, “Ishaqzaade” and Dev D have found him plenty of fans in Bollywood. But when it came to composing for Abhishek Chaubey‘s “Udta Punjab”, a film about a rock singer addicted to narcotics, Trivedi said he had to be extra cautious. He spoke to Reuters about that process, why he doesn’t want “corruption” in his songs, and why crea...
