Raja Ravi Verma had hiterto been an enigma to the common populace. For a child of all generations for over the centuries. His paintings on Gods have adorned many a temples and private mandirs in millions of homes across India.

NIGHTCRAWLER – Hollywood film review

Rating: ****

An engrossing thriller about an unemployed, part time thief who rises to become an owner of the most competitive business in the American television industry.
Every night, while the city sleeps, motley crews armed with fast cars, expensive video cameras and blaring police radios prowl the sprawling Los Angeles basin in search of a story.

These freelance stringers, known as nightcrawlers, hunt for crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem in hopes of selling the footage to local TV news.

Pin-balling from one police scene to the next, they are driven by a simple equation that converts crime and victims into dollars and cents.

Mine is an entertaining comedy: Sarovar Banka, Director of A Decent Arrangement

A one-on-one with the Director of the much acclaimed film.
How would you describe your film A Decent Arrangement?
I’d say that it is a small film about Adam, an Indian American who comes to India and seeks the help and guidance of his elder cousin played by Shabana Azmi in search of an arranged marriage. The film deals with the dilemma of today’s youth who are unable to decide whether they want to opt for an arranged marriage or a love marriage and the extent to which they are ready to walk the extra mile to get what they want.

How did you zero in on an actress like Shabana Azmi ?
I should say that it was pure luck that led me to Shabana as I knew some one who knew her. I sent my script to India to her and I was pleasantly surprised when Shabana called me back to say that she would be happy to be part of my film as an actress. Shabana Azmi surprises you as an actress every minute on the sets and you can be sure of getting your shot in the first take itself with her 99% as she was ready with her lines and fully prepared

How was your leading man Adam as an actor?
Not many either in India or abroad know Adam, who ism playing the lead in my film. What I like about Adam is that he is an incredible actor who was not at all in awe of Shabana Azmi when he was pitted in my film.
