    MF Husain: India’s lost talent

    MF Husain: India’s lost talent

    It is with great sadness that Cineswami notes the passing of India’s greatest ever artist, and occasional Bollywood filmmaker Maqbool Fida Husain, who died in distant London on June 9. Several obits will no doubt refer to the great man as the ‘Picasso of India’ but I beg to differ. He was, simply put, the Husain of India
    I had occasion to meet the man twice; once when he unveiled his Madhuri obsessive paintings in Delhi, the series that led to Gaja Gamini; and again a couple of years later where the film was screened at London’s Tate Modern museum as part of their Century City: Art and Culture in the Modern Metropolis exhibition. The late painter delivered a riveting oration on the relationship between painting and cinema. Click here to read more

    Know about the late artist’s many muses from B-town
    Artist MF Husain, who died on June 9, 2011 in London, might have irked some people for his paintings of nude Hindu deities, but our Bollywood ‘devis’ only reciprocated his love for them by being overwhelmed by his work, his talent and his adoration. His first Bollywood muse was Madhuri Dixit. So besotted was he by her, that he watched her superhit film Hum Aapke Hain Koun…! 70 times! Click here to read more

    Siddharth Roy Kapur: CCI judgement for film associations is a landmark event

    Siddharth Roy Kapur: CCI judgement for film associations is a landmark event

    The Competition Commission of India has fined regional film bodies for anti-competitive practices
    Thank God for democracy and by extension, thank the government for the Competition Commission of India (CCI). We’ve been led to believe from early childhood that we live in a free country with freedom of expression, freedom to do business etc. Right? Wrong. In reality, we live in a draconian state where anything against the perceived grain is immediately frowned upon and censured (add your own MF Husain, Valentine’s Day or your pet grouse here). But fear not, because of the redoubtable CCI, at least we now have the freedom to watch movies. Click here to read more

    MF Husain documentary to be screened at IFFI

    MF Husain documentary to be screened at IFFI

    A film documentary by late painter MF Husain will finally be screened at the ongoing 42nd International Film Festival of India despite right wing protests, said organisers Tuesday. Speaking to reporters, festival director Shankar Mohan said Husain’s documentary Through the Eyes of a Painter would “definitely be screened” Wednesday, but a slot had not been finalised yet. “We are looking for a slot. It will definitely be screened,” he said. Mohan had said Saturday that the screening of the documentary, which is part of a homage by the film fraternity to the artist who died this year, had been ‘deferred’ after protests from right wing organisation Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS), which had claimed that screening of the documentary would amount to contempt of court as a case regarding the screening of the film was ‘sub judice’. Rajshree Gadekar, chief of the women’s wing of HJS said the 1967 film shot by Husain and produced by the Films Division of India (FDI) should not be screened at the festival because the painter had insulted India. Mohan said the IFFI organisers had sought advice “in our own way and arrived at clarity on the matter”.
