A little chit, a little chat, a little bit of this & that;meaning news, views & lotsa reviews from an independent journo based in Bombay aka Mumbai




"If a barrier is big, the love story has to be bigger"- Imtiaz Ali, film-maker & producer said in a conversation with doc film maker and author, Nasreen Munni Kabir.

Clippings from some of his films including ‘Socha Na Tha’, ‘Jab We Met’ and ‘Highway’ were screened to the audience,during the discussion about his influences, work process and collaborations.


"The concept of having Film Bazaar is very interesting; it's meaningful, and provides a platform for emerging young voices, fresh voices, to come into cinema. It's very good that demand and supply on both sides can find a confluence point."

Asked by Ms Kabir if he was tired of being typecast as someone who makes romantic films?  he replied, No. ( not curtly but of course, they seem to be good friends as he has been a dinner guest in her London home)

 This blogger asked him if Highway starring Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda was inspired by the Stockholm Syndrome and he said: "No. I got to know about this Syndrome only after I had completed the film."


(For those who'd like to know the Stockholm Syndrome has to do with feelings of trust or affection felt in many cases of  abduction by a victim towards a captor. It originated in the 1970s with reference to a bank robbery and a six day siege of the bank in Stockholm. Arguably, the most famous case of Stockholm Syndrome is  the 1974  kidnapping of Patty Hearst, granddaughter of newspaper mogul William Randolph  Hearst. She was kidnapped by the Symbionese Liberation Army  and held captive for over a year before  the FBI captured them. There have been several other really sad cases of very young girls kidnapped,tortured and raped for years in captivity.)
