Elections: Roti, Kapda, Makaan are the need of the hour, say TV actors

As the elections loom closer, our TV actors tell us what they are looking for from the new government.

The basic problem is of Roti, Kapda and Makan. If the prices will not go down, then how will the public live their life. They are increasing day by day and there is no full stop. This problem has been there for a long time. I expect that the law should be equal for everyone irrespective of caste, creed and sex. The spirit of brotherhood will only live when the politicians will not see them as vote banks but?as one country for whom good is to be done.

Tiktok has been banned in Tamil Nadu

Tiktok has been banned in Tamil Nadu. Here is what the TV industry has to say about it.

Sumit Kaul: ?I haven?t come across any explicit sexual content on the app. In fact, if any of the videos have a hint of action that could potentially physically harm someone, have explicit warnings attached by TikTok stating that such actions should not be practiced. I know of many videos that have been taken down because they were in appropriate in some way. So I am pretty sure that their team must be taking reasonable amount of care to ensure that the platform is not abused. Having said that, it is a public platform and therefore is prone to people using it incorrectly. That doesn?t make the App necessarily at fault. Technology is a tool. Misuse is by human beings. The tool can be used for entertainment or for publishing rubbish.

The world’s longest running South Asian film festival outside of India, the UK Asian Film Festival begins on March 27th and runs through May 4th. At a time of significant change, UK Asian Film Festival marks its 21st anniversary with a curated slate of films inspired by the theme of Revolution. Historically known as Tongues on Fire and then London Asian Film Festival, the festival is also synonymous with championing South Asian feminist films and supporting pioneering, female artists and auteurs.

Honouring Revolution through the vehicle of South Asian Cinema, UK Asian Film Festival looks at the #MeToo movement gathering momentum in the Indian and Pakistani film industries and the decriminalisation of homosexuality and the repeal of Section 377 in India last year.

Festival Director, Dr Pushpinder Chowdhry MBE says, “This year’s festival will present pertinent stories of the ordinary person told through films that address global challenges of our time.

‘Hamid’

Palm Springs Iff 2019: ‘Hamid’Review by Peter Belsito

I believe I’ve never seen a film from Kashmir before so this all looked and felt new.

Hamid is the story of a young village boy, a budding shipbuilder, whose loving father disappears near the film’s beginning. In his search for his dad, the boy enlists the help of God and the story drives on that relationship.

Hamid’s father, like many men in Kashmir, has suddenly gone missing, and the young boy finds his life turned upside down as he begins looking everywhere for him. Some 8,000 people have vanished since the conflicts of 1989, so it is no wonder that Hamid’s mother has become numb to tragedy, indifferent to the world around her, and unhelpful in answering Hamid’s many questions.
