    London Film Festival 2013: The Lunchbox to vie for Best Film

    London Film Festival 2013: The Lunchbox to vie for Best Film

    But Indian cinema is cruelly underrepresented at the fest, feels Cineswami
    It is indeed wonderful news that Ritesh Batra’s delightful The Lunchbox (Dabba), starring Irrfan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Nimrat Kaur, is in official competition at the London Film Festival and will compete for best film alongside some of the best directors across the world. However there are only 7 films of South Asian origin out of a total of 234 selected features, just 3 percent. It just doesn’t add up. Click here to read more

    The miracle of ‘Paan Singh Tomar’ at the box office

    The miracle of ‘Paan Singh Tomar’ at the box office

    The box office collections jumped to Rs 4.5 crore on the opening weekend thanks to word of mouth
    It was a film that its producers UTV had no faith in. Even though Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Paan Singh Tomar, starring India’s best actor Irrfan, had won plaudits internationally, including sold out screenings at the London Film Festival, UTV dragged their feet on the film’s release. They kept postponing it until perhaps swayed by the critical, if not commercial, reception accorded to Dhulia’s Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster, they decided to take the plunge and release the film. The release was at best a low-key affair. Almost nothing was spent on marketing and publicity and the film went out on a scant 300 screens, an aberration these days where thousands are the norm. Paan Singh Tomar was up against Fox’s London Paris New York, an aggressively marketed and positively reviewed film in the relatively safe rom-com genre as opposed to a biopic.
