Its just onward and upward for me: Priyamani

BENGALURU: It is arguably one of the best times for actor Priyamani, who is currently enjoying significant success in Bollywood. After Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Jawan, which was released in December last year, her first Hindi film of this year, Article 370, opened to positive reviews. This month, the actor returned to the big screen once again with her latest film, Maidaan, a period drama, which also stars Ajay Devgn. The film is based on Syed Abdul Rahim, a pioneering football coach in India from 1952 to 1962, and Priyamani portrays his wife, Saira. She describes Saira as someone who goes to any extent to realise her husbands dreams. She is the catalyst in his life but pulls the strings when needed. Her relationship with her husband is very pure and different from what it was during that era, Priyamani adds. Working with Devgn for the first time, she found him to be a man of few words. During the shoot, we didnt have an opportunity to sit down to talk and get to know each other a little better. But, we did discuss how the South industries work and spoke about some of the directors from the Southern industry, Priyamani says, adding that it was during the promotions that she saw the lighter side of Devgn. Hes a man of few words, but whatever he says makes so much sense. As an actor, he is simply par excellence, she adds. Priyamanis current success in Bollywood is evident, and she has been unapologetically embracing it. Im fortunate enough that I got to be part of some wonderful projects where I got paired with big names. Also, I believe in the projects I do. That also plays a major factor but Im very grateful that they thought of me to have me as part of the project and think of me as a particular character that they want me to play, says the National Award-winning actor. She continues, I am glad that the project that I was working on finally saw the light of day, I mean, they really, were doing extremely well. Now its just onward and upward for me. In addition to Bollywood, Priyamani is active in various South Indian film industries. Every film industry is known for having a very distinctive work culture and Priyamani says it does not take her more than a day or two to get used to the new set up. I try to get to know their vision and for me, its quite easy to adapt into it and carry on with the project, she notes. Priyamani also mentions she has several projects that she has been listening to. Ill be able to announce the ones that have received the green light from production soon, she concludes.

Malayalam blockbuster 'Manjummel Boys' to release on Disney+ Hotstar soon

Earlier today, Disney+ Hotstar announced that it would soon stream the Malayalam blockbuster Manjummel Boys . Writer-director Chidambaram's film is a based-on-real-life survival thriller about a group of friends from Manjummel, Kochi, who go to the Guna Cave in Kodaikkanal. The film stars Soubin Shahir, Sreenath Bhasi, Ganapathi, Deepak Parambol, Jean Paul Lal, Balu Varghese, Abhiram Radhakrishnan, Arun Kurian, Shebin Benson, Khalid Rahman, Chandu Salimkumar, George Maryan, and Ramachandran Durairaj. Manjummel Boys holds the record for being the highest-grossing Malayalam film worldwide, according to the makers. Soubin Shahir and Shawn Antony produced the film under their banner Parava Films, alongside Babu Shahir. It garnered critical and audience appreciation for Sushin Shyam's music, Shyju Khalid's cinematography, and Ajayan Chalissery's production design. The film's references to Santhana Bharathi's Kamal Haasan starrer Gunaa also made a big impact on the audience, especially those in Tamil Nadu, where it still continues its theatrical run. The makers claimed that it became the first film to gross over 200 crores at the worldwide box office. Disney+ Hotstar is yet to announce a release date for the film, which came out on February 22 in theatres. The announcement of the OTT release of Manjummel Boys comes shortly after the streamer dropped the other recent Malayalam blockbuster Premalu. (This story originally appeared on Cinema Express )

'Stolen' movie review: An indigenous manifesto

An adaptation of Ann-Helen Laestadius book, Stolen makes for an intense and timely watch. It narrates the struggle for survival of Swedens indigenous Smi community. It speaks of how the livelihood of traditional reindeer-herders is at risk in the wake of climate change. If that wasnt depressing enough, theres also the matter of dealing with xenophobes and bigots, who spread fear and hatred. Elle Mrj Eiras fantastic film is relevant now more than ever, where the existence of indigenous communities the world over are threatened, and their special/protected status called into question. Robert Isaksson (Martin Wallstrm), the primary antagonist, complains about why the Smi community must receive subsidies. It is a story of intolerance as old as time. Instead of attempting to understand the other, the film shows how one is taught to be wary and afraid of anyone that is different. The young Elsa (Risten-Alida Siri Skum) learns these harsh truths at school. She is excluded because she is different. Her mind is set on becoming a reindeer herder, even as her father contemplates the future of their profession. Climate change threatens their survival, and he wonders if its wise for his daughter to venture into uncertainty. Despite the mounting challenges, she is eventually shown the ropes: how to wrangle the animals and mark calves to differentiate them from the herd. Then, we meet the adult Elsa (Elin Kristina Oskal), who continues to live as a reindeer-herder, even as animal killings become more rampant, threatening the communitys survival. The police categorises the dead animals as stolen as the carcasses remain untraceable. The makers have created a hard-hitting film that doesnt get preachy. It is a story of discrimination that is first seen from the eyes of an intelligent child, and then a perceptive adult. Stolen delves not just into indigenous rights but gender too. Elsa speaks up about the issues faced by her people even as the Smi community leaders choose to stay diplomatic. Her outspoken nature is declared the reason for the hatred inflicted on the Smi people. Even her father disapproves of her idea of justice. Stolen is real, visceral, and sometimes, more than one can handle. Apart from being a thought-provoking film, it is also shot gorgeously. Cinematographer Ken Are Bongos frames are something to behold. With an earnest and convincing tone, the film makes a case for the need to value the lives of indigenous people across the globe, and its hard for us viewers to disagree. Stolen Director: Elle Mrj Eira Genre: Drama Platform: Netflix Language: English Rating: 3.5/5

Sets are safer, thanks to #MeToo: British-American actor Lucy Boynton

What made you want to be a part of this movie? First of all, I just loved the script. Its such a beautiful character. And then, it was the people I got to work with. The cast and crew were incredible. The whole experience of filming was amazing, so much so that I was reluctant to let go of it. What can you tell us about your character? I play Harriet, who we first meet at an interesting point in her life. It is the two-year anniversary of her boyfriend Maxs death, and everyone around her has assumed she is okay, and much further along in her healing journey than she actually is. But, because of this ability to go back in time by listening to songs that she and Max once listened to together, she hasnt really moved on. Initially, its a gift for her; to have this bonus time we all would want to have with someone we have loved and lost, but it is now stopping her from moving on. Then, David (played by Justin H Min) enters her life and gives her a reason to not live in the past. Its basically two beautiful love stories set against a killer soundtrack. David Corenswet plays Max.Did the fact that you had worked together before on The Politician make it easier to find that chemistry together? It did. It felt like we were picking up from where we left off. I know how he works and he knows how I work, so it was cohesive. Both of us felt safe with each other, but it was also just really fun. We got to skip the chapter of learning about each other, and so we dived right in. What were your highlights from being on set? The moments where we all get to be together, which were rare because of the different time-frames in the movie. But, off set we got to hang out at Neds (director Ned Benson) house. This film is all about how songs play a special role in our memories. What is a song that takes you back to a special time? All of The Beatles songs. They transport me back to my childhood. But, at the moment a song that I love is Saying Goodbye by Ondara. I heard it last summer, and its been on a loop ever since. Are there any songs from this film that have stayed with you? Yeah, I was given a stack of vinyl records that we used, and were treasured by my character. Thats both really sentimental and practical. What is one of your favourite filming experiences so far in your career? Murder on the Orient Express. Working with Kenneth Branagh was special. He has a specific way of communicating with actors because of the fact he is a director, and an actor with a theatre background. It felt like being part of a troupe. There was a rich process of preparation, which you dont usually get in film and television. I was grateful to get that insight, and have tried to apply it to my jobs since then. Who in the industry inspires you? Oh, so many. Betty Gilpin wrote a book recently where she speaks specifically about the experience of being a (female) actor. I think all (female) actors should read it. She talks about sometimes finding this thing where in a scene it all stops being acting, and almost becomes real. You get to that point where you feel the feelings your character is supposed to feel, and you live it for a minute. Knowing that I have had those experiences is weirdly freeing. Do you feel the film industry is a better place for women now, compared to years ago? I think the sets are much safer now, thanks to the #MeToo movement and all the women who stood up. Hopefully, it will continue in every single industry, and not just my own. You are also playing Ruth Ellis in a drama based on the real-life murderer, and the last woman to be hanged in Britain. What can you tell us about that? That was just a world away from The Greatest Hits! It was so intense but a real privilege to be a part of. It was fascinating to learn more about her story and Im excited to be bringing it to new audiences. Finally, if you could describe The Greatest Hits! in three words, what would they be? Musical. Sentimental. Nostalgic.

Hansal Mehta tackles Gandhi's relevance in upcoming web series amidst hyper-polarised times

Being fearless is overrated. I find fearlessness and stupidity interchangeable. We are just storytellers doing our job of reflecting the times we live in, says filmmaker Hansal Mehta. A telling statement considering his next is a series on Mahatma Gandhi, revisiting the life and times of the man whose ideology is more significant than ever in todays hyper-polarised world. All my energies are currently devoted towards this man, Mehta says, pointing towards a portrait of Gandhi on his wall. The web series, expected to release later this year, is an adaptation of historian Ramachandra Guhas books Gandhi Before India and Gandhi: The Years That Changed the World, and will be helmed by actor Pratik Gandhi. Meanwhile, Mehta has been busy being a showrunner on his son Jais directorial debut, Lootere, a hostage drama set against the backdrop of ethnic conflict in Somalia. The filmmaker confesses he would have been equally happy about not being part of the same since he had faith in Jai, who had assisted him on Scam 1992. I am wary of taking on showrunner responsibilities because you end up seeing work that does not carry your signature or fit the template. And, even though things may not be up to the mark, one has to take ownership, he says, adding, In Jais case, however, I knew he has the sensibility, ambition and vision that matches mine. He is indeed a chip off the old block. That was the prime reason I came along to guide him when needed. Mehtas cinematic journey has been one of reinvention and resurrection. Having started off with directing food shows, he moved on to making films such as the dark comedy, Dil Pe Mat Le Yaar, (2000) and Woodstock Villa (2008). But then, he decided to take a break and reevaluate. The objective was, he says, to find his voice as a filmmaker, and he found it in telling real-life stories. He came into his own half-a-decade-later with Shahid (2013), a biopic on human rights lawyer Shahid Azmi, followed by a hard-hitting narrative in Aligarh (2016), the story of a professor who was suspended for being gay. Scam 1992, which looked at the stock market scam and broker Harshad Mehta, was critically acclaimed, as was the 2023-release Scoop, based on Jigna Voras book Behind Bars in Byculla: My Days in Prison. I try to tell a personal story through a very public one. These are also stories of our times. If the journey of the character resonates with you, it would compel you to also question the current political-socio and economic fabric. That has been my approach towards choosing the subjects and telling stories the way I do, he says, adding, Harshad Mehtas story is a cautionary tale of greed in the times of liberalisation; Scoop is about ambition and the state of media. Likewise, Lootere is about the people who are on the ship, but also about the microcosms of our times. Hansal Mehta Mehtas next crime thriller, The Buckingham Murders, which stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, and has premiered at the BFI London Film Festival and the MaMi film festival, is awaiting its theatrical release. I have worked with Kareena, the actor, and not the star, which is just a bonus. Because she is a directors actor, he says. Given his mega success on the streaming platform, does he prefer digital release to the big screen? They are different mediums and both have their own challenges. There is this proliferation of box-office numbers, but in the rat race, my films have managed to find their place because they are meant to resonate beyond first-week numbers and shelf life in theaters, he says, adding, The long form also allows you to explore characters in depth. So, certain stories lend themselves to that medium. But, Aligarh and Shahid, for instance, were ideal feature films. The story chooses the format.

Diamond and gold ornaments worth over Rs 1 crore stolen from Director Joshiy's home

Kochi: Diamond and gold ornaments worth over Rs 1 crore were stolen from the home of Malayalam film director Joshiy in Panampilly Nagar on Saturday. Following a complaint by Joshiy's son Abhilash on Saturday morning, the Ernakulam South Police began investigations. INTERVIEW | Getting my first film off the ground wasnt easy: Director Abhilash Joshiy The theft is suspected to have taken place between 1 am and 2 am when Joshiy's family were present at the house in Street B, XB Cross Road, Panampilly Nagar, one of the posher areas of Kochi. The accused persons entered the house by breaking the window in the kitchen of the house. Later, they stole ornaments from the Almirah in a bedroom on the first floor of the house. We are conducting a probe into the incident, said P Rajkumar, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Ernakulam. According to police reports, the stolen items include one diamond necklace set, 10 diamond rings, 12 diamond earrings, two gold rings, 10 gold chains, 10 gold bangles, and 10 wristwatches. The total estimated value of the stolen jewelry is over Rs 1 crore. Authorities are reviewing CCTV footage to identify those involved, noting that the theft appeared to be carefully planned. It seems a history-sheeter is involved in the incident, a police officer said. Police are investigating whether a gang from another state may be responsible for the theft as similar incidents have occurred in Kochi in recent months with robbers coming from other states and escaping back to their home states. Forensic and fingerprint experts have collected samples from the house, and a canine from the dog squad was also brought in. We are putting all our efforts into identifying and apprehending the suspects as quickly as possible. We are also checking individuals previously arrested for theft and recently released from jail, a police officer stated. 'Antony' movie review: Overfamiliarity breeds fatigue
