Anurag Kashyap-Sudhir Mishra: Selling short?

The hatke directors of Bollywood have come together to endorse a short-film contest

Anurag Kashyap and Sudhir Mishra are known for making films that stray from the domain of commercial masala entertainers. Over the years they have found many takers for their brand of cinema, and are pushing the envelope within their means. We were not surprised then when we were invited to an event where the duo was launching a short film contest. Kashyap and Mishra seemed to be excited about the new experiment and were gung-ho about discovering and mentoring new talents.

When asked what was more difficult – making a feature film or a short film – both directors agreed that short films are more challenging. Kashyap said, “Making a short film is the purest form of cinema, because you make it without any expectations at all.” Mishra joked, “In the time that I have taken to come up with a script for my short film, I think I could have written the script of a feature film.” In his trademark anti-establishment style, the Dev.D director added, “I will not have to wait for a Khan to make my short film.”

Wethinks it is a good initiative, and irrespective of the result, kudos to the directors for trying to take a step forward in the right direction.

    Scott,I can’t comment on the spfieiccs for your son, but there are some general things to consider. First, everyone is unique and it’s tough to compare from one person’s injury to another. There are certain types of fractures in the hand or wrist where we need to be very careful, so I can see where the thinking could be coming from. Second, there’s a bit of judgment that only the treating practitioner can give. In almost every case the treating practitioner wants your son’s best interest in mind, but if they are used to sports medicine they will usually be receptive to questions from parents. My suggestion would be to bring your comments up with the practitioner in a non-accusing way and see if there’s a compromise that leads to safe healing, but maybe some earlier return to play.
