Prathyayam

#
Director: Rajesh Touchriver.
Provocative, shocking and surprisingly tender amidst an explosion of unbridled emotions, “Prathyayam”(Trust) in telugu and “Ente…”(Mine…) in malyalam explores the consequences of sex trafficking, testing the vulnerability of trust in human relations. Srinivas(Siddiq) is a wonderful and devoted father to Durga(Anjali Patil), and he provides her the best. Working in the city and maintaining his family in a small town works well for him for years. One day everything is shattered when Durga comes unannounced to the city to appear for an interview concerning her college admission. Durga’s life is brutally torn apart as Srinivas wrestles with grief, remorse, self pity and guilt.

GLOOM IN WARSAW AS KATYN FAILS TO BRING HOME OSCAR

user
The Academy awards coming nearly a month earlier than usual this year (late February instead of late march) brought a certain "freudenschade" (Joy over other people's misery) to Western Europe and an air of gloom to Warsaw. The German newspapers were practically gloating over the fact that all four acting Oscars went to European rather than American performers (UK, France and Spain), whereas the Poles, placing high hopes on Andrzej Wajda's WW II Massacre epic "Katyn", recei...

Gloom in Warsaw when Katyn failed to bring home Oscar

The German newspapers were practically gloating over the fact that all four acting Oscars went to European rather than American performers (UK, France and Spain), whereas the Poles, placing high hopes on Andrzej Wajda's WW II Massacre epic "Katyn", received a painful letdown when the Best Foreign film award went to a relatively minor Austrian concentration camp s...
