Mamata Banerjee: How about a Bollywood movie on her life?
Cineswami has a new passion – the lovely Mamata-di of Poschim Bongo, and he says there should be a film on the politician
You might be wondering, gentle reader, as to why the spectre of politics is disgracing these pages meant to carry graceful accounts of the altogether more noble, if not clean, entertainment industry.

Straight off the bat, if the likes of Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna, Dharmendra, Govinda and Jaya Prada can have political links, certainly Cineswami can. That’s not even looking at highly politicised Tamil Nadu, where every single chief minister since 1967 has either been an actor, actress or screenwriter. And Andhra Pradesh was ruled by the late, great NTR. But, we digress. We must return to the object of Cineswami’s passion, the lovely Mamata-di. The graceful lady swept away more than three decades of communist rule in West Bengal and proved the power of democracy by winning with a brute majority. Click here to read more

‘Oosaravelli’ Movie review: Watch at your own risk
When a big star like Jr NTR, whose terrific screen presence is a major attraction for his fans, teams up with a stylish and successful director like Surendar Reddy, one expects a lot of fireworks. Alas, Oosaravelli fails to live up to the expectations, and one can blame a weak script for this debacle
