The Lunchbox: FFI needlessly drags on issue
Cineswami feels the matter was resolved and the Oscar selection body has no business to comment on it further
The august body that is the Film Federation of India (FFI) clearly needs a crash course in the maxim ‘let sleeping dogs lie’. Issuing a letter to The Lunchbox director Ritesh Batra with copies marked to production companies Anurag Kashyap Films Private Limited and Disney UTV and to presenter Dharma Productions asking for an ‘unconditional apology’, rakes up the dying embers of the controversy and smacks of pettiness.

AR Rahman is my spiritual guru: Resul Pookutty
The Oscar Award-winning sound designer says once you make it big internationally, people in India think you’re too snobbish or expensive to hire. In an exclusive chat with BollywoodLife, Resul also talks about his projects including his Oscar-nominated film The Good Road, Rajinikanth’s Kochadaiiyaan, his relationship with master composer AR Rahman, and how Irrfan Khan had predicted he would have no takers in India…
He’s unassuming, accessible and cheerful – you wouldn’t think you’re speaking to an Academy Award-winner and virtuoso sound designer until you realise the depth of Resul Pookutty‘s knowledge and experience. And yet he has no airs and his answers are unrehearsed. When asked if the Slumdog Millionaire victory at the Oscars increased opportunities for him in Hollywood and also back home in India, he confesses, “I’m not getting any work in India, which is quite sad…people think I’m too snobbish or expensive because I’ve won an Oscar.” In the same vein, he says that he’s forgotten all about winning that so-coveted Academy award!

Resul Pookutty book Sounding Off review: Not just sound and fury
Read the review of Oscar Award-winning sound designer Resul Pookutty’s autobiograpy
He may be ‘India’s best known sound designer and audiographer’, as the book jacket says, but Resul Pookutty sounds just like a lad from a small village set deep into the backwaters of Kerala. It could be straight out of Swami and Friends, or Malgudi Days, that RK Narayan classic made for television. The way he tells it (in translation by KK Muralidharan), life was a bucolic existence, full of masti and replete with good things to eat and scoldings — and more — from Umma, Pookutty’s mother.
