Toilet Ek Prem Katha Review : a welcome merger of commerce and cause

Even though the movie is talking about toilets, Director Shree Narayan Singh’s sanitation celluloid Toilet Ek Prem Katha (TEPK) is a creative representation of a social satire enveloped entirely around a romantic tale. A non-squeamish visual where the audience won’t feel awkward chewing popcorn comfortably on their recliners!  Virtuoso protagonist Akshay Kumar, who plays the role of Keshav, a hopeful-romantic husband who is struggling with the unjust practice of defecation in public has gripped the audience with his wit, humour and watertight performance throughout the film. While Bhumi Pednekar (last seen as the terrific Sandhya in Dum Laga ke Haisha) is the actual backbone of the movie as Jaya, who becomes the voice of rural women demanding a public toilet for…...








Ahmedabad Art Weekly #121

The 121st edition of Ahmedabad Art Weekly showcases a different aspect of the city. The AAW series is not a part of the, ‘Manchester of the East’ or the currently recognised, ’India’s first World Heritage City’ tag. AAW is a face for all the creators of the city, who wish to bring a rock-hard change in the way people are consuming content today. With cultural, creative, musical and literary astounding events, the city is developing itself into a cultural hub, where people are consciously aware of how they can consume more and more creatively enriching content. Let us all pledge to scroll for the best and not for what’s being fed to us.   This week’s creative inspiration for the 121st edition of Creative Yatra’s Ahmedabad Art Weekly is none other than Gujarat’s experimental poet Manhar Modi, who was an extreme exponent of Gujarati language and taught the vernacular script in various colleges and universities. Born in Ahmedabad in 1937, Modi served as a salesman and a senior clerk in Western Railway, before actively participating in literacy activities and later becoming the modern reformist of it. He was awarded several accolades including the Kalapi Award and Dhanji Kanji Gandhi Suvarna Chandrak for…...

Bodhivruksha and C.N. Kalaniketan are collaborating to support and promote plurality in Indian Cinema.

Blushing Hues of Spring

People change like the weather, but the change in weather is always beautiful, unlike people. In this album ‘Blushing Hues of Spring’ photographer Priti Bhatt, who hails from the heritage city of Ahmedabad, explains us the different moods in nature, in time and the life around us. Her vision of capturing folage in its most organic form gives her viewers an opportunity to connect with the natural atmosphere in all these urbanisations. Her zeal of capturing the vibrancy of nature in its utmost simplicity is what makes here clicks unique as well as picturesque.

A management professional, who is also a serious hobbyist, Priti considers photography as an opportunity to find her inner self. She was always inclined towards capturing the best moments of life, her family and friends, during her early days but her vision towards photography as an art upgraded after meeting veteran photographers and mentor Ketan Modi and Vivek Desai. From there she began capturing unique elements that roam around us while travelling. This album consists pictures that were clicked in the time frame of 3 years at various places of Gujarat, especially Ahmedabad and The Dangs.

In the times of infiltration, mass abductions and the rising tension between nations to wage fully equipped war on each other, Christopher Nolan’s immersive World War II drama, Dunkirk is a needed horror to reminisce the ruthless consequences that a war incapacitates. Shot with sheer magnificence on IMAX 65 mm, Nolan’s perspective of a triptych screenplay, is an…

Till the other day, though the calendar indicated onset of Ashadh, the clouds showed an anticipating Jyeshtha, and now when Ashadh, at times content with spells of occasional showers, assumes the character of Shravan, it seems the perfect time to receive from Somdatta Chakraborty (US) an audio-visual link to Krishnakali Ami Tarei Boli, a dainty…

For a feeling to ooze from the mystic source within and form itself into a lyrical expression, the poet needs only to make way for it to flow unhindered and verbally unadorned. The pith of a poet’s expression feels freshly pure as at germination because, he does not let in frivolous gimmicks for acclaim. Mareez…
