Tarzan Movie Review

First of all sorry for delaying this review. I went for this movie few days back but didn’t get time to write this review.  Anyway, better late than never. I was expecting this movie to be another typical Tarzan movie but this movie really surprised me. This movie wasn’t about the Tarzan story we all know and therefore this is a must watch. This movie tells a story where Tarzan comes back to Africa from London and saves Africa. Also unlike most of the Tarzan movies this movie doesn’t portray Tarzan as someone who can not be defeated by anyone.

The Present State of Higher Education in India

Today I am going to tell you a sensitive issue which no media is covering. Around 5000 people lost their jobs or are in the verge of losing their jobs from Delhi University and nobody seems to bother. This issue will influence the careers of millions of people and therefore we should talk about this and raise our voice.   In India if you want to be in teaching profession of a University, it’s very tough. So the process if these people study for 17 years to get qualified for NET and NET being a tough exam, sometimes it again

এই শহর জানে আমার প্রথম সবকিছু !

কলকাতা স্মৃতির শহর, কলকাতা একটা ‘হয়ে যাওয়া’, ফুরিয়ে যাওয়া, বিগতযৌবনা, জাস্ট পাস্ট হয়ে যাওয়া বড় বেদনার শহর।আমাদের জন্মাবধি চেনা, পুরোনো, মলিন এই শহরটাকে এভাবেই দেখতে আমরা অনেকেই অভ্যস্ত। কিন্তু সেই দেখার মধ্যে কতটুকু নিখাদ সত্যি ? তবে যে লোকে বলে, এই শহরের মধ্যে আছে নাকি অন্য একটা শহর ? কলকাতা কি আদৌ কল্লোলিনী তিলোত্তমা হয়েছে না এ আমাদের ভাতঘুমের দিবাস্বপ্নের অকর্মন্য খোয়াঁড়ি ছাড়া, কিস্যু নয় ? এই সব প্রশ্ন ওর নিজের অভিজ্ঞতায় জারিয়ে নিয়ে প্রাণ ঢেলে একটি লেখা লিখেছেন এক নবীন নাট্যকর্মী তুর্ণা আজকের আনন্দবাজার পত্রিকায়। সাতসকালে হোয়াটসঅ্যাপে লেখাটা পেলাম সুহৃদ বন্ধুর কাছ থেকে যিনি নিজেও নাট্যকর্মী। তার পরেই খালি

Ki & Ka Movie Review

You have to agree this movie is of a different league. Today I will discuss two aspects of this movie, one is concept of the movie and another is other technicalities of the movie. First of all, I don’t agree with the concept shown in the movie. Before being tagged as Chauvinist or sexist, let me clear the fog why I do not support the concept. I too believe in equality. I do not believe one has to to office work and the other one will have to sit back at home and do household activities. In case you like

Kanhaiya vs Modi – a healthy discussion

First of all, apologies for the title. This is beyond Kanhaiya or Modi but used this title so that people can relate easily. So this morning I had a very healthy discussion with one of my friend. He supports Modi whereas I am no anti modi but I feel nobody is above question, even if it is Modi and since we elected him, he is more answerable to us. So I am putting the discussion below and hope this will give you the idea of both side of the coin.   The story starts with a post on Facebook. My

Sorry, but I am no Fan of Fan

Rating: 2/5 Surprisingly everyone seems to like Fan. But I think its a very average old fashioned Shahrukh Khan centred illogical connectless movie. The movie revolves around one and only Shahrukh Khan and other people are used just as props. The movie is about a die hard fan of Shahrukh khan, sorry, Aryan Khanna (what’s the difference) who calls himself junior Aryan Khanna and wishes to meet him in person someday. However when he actually did, things didn’t happen as he dreamt of and from junior Aryan Khanna he becomes anti Aryan Khanna. The only thing I liked about the

নববর্ষ – A Poem To Welcome The New Year

নববর্ষ  (The new year is a time of joy, of rejuvenated life and rekindled hope. It is a time when we anticipate the best, and decide to do away with our fragile, crumbling, ancient memories, and march on, in the hope of experiencing some of the best days yet to come. This piece of mine, one of the few that I composed in my mother-tongue Bengali, is a poetic appreciation and personification of the new year, as the granter of our dreams and wishes. The language is a bit archaic, in fact I prefer speaking in Bankimi Bhasa or the higher form
