    Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum: Goa legislator objects to depiction of Christianity

    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”.

    Freida Pinto’s ‘Trishna’ at IIFI

    Freida Pinto’s ‘Trishna’ at IIFI

    Hollywood-based Indian actor Freida Pinto-starrer Trishna will be screened Friday at the 42nd International Film Festival of Indian in Panaji. Trishna is about a woman whose life is destroyed by a combination of love and circumstances. Freida, along with director Michael Winterbottom, co-producers Anurag Kashyap and Sunil Bohra as well as composer Amit Trivedi, will attend the screening. The story is based on Thomas Hardy’s classic novel Tess of the D’Urbervilles. Set in contemporary Rajasthan, the film has Trishna (Freida) meeting a wealthy young British businessman Jay Singh (Riz Ahmed) who has come to India to work in his father’s hotel business. After an accident destroys her father’s jeep, Trishna goes to work for Jay, and they fall in love. But despite their feelings for each other, they cannot escape the conflicting pressures of a rural society which is changing rapidly through industrialisation, urbanisation and, above all, education. Trishna’s tragedy is that she is torn between the traditions of her family life and the dreams and ambitions that her education has given her. The film had its international premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and received rave reviews from critics. The film will have worldwide release in 2012. For the India release, it will be dubbed in eight languages.
