Saif Ali Khan's Tandav rakes up JNU issue

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
Tandav, the eagerly awaited web-series on Amazon Prime, has dared to venture into dangerous territory. The violence on the Jawaharwal Nehru University in 2019 has been raked up, with actor Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub playing Kanhaiya incarnate goading his fellow-students into an uprising against political tyranny. Clearly taking the students' side, the series shows the cops brutally thrashing the students, male and female alike, and a leery policeman asking a girl student which of the three male students accompanying her is her boyfriend. There is also a farmers' rally right at the start of the series where again the police is shown going on a rampage after getting calls from mysterious political forces. While one admires the writers of the series venturing into forbidden territory (religion and politics are considered taboo on OTT), one also wonders what affect this naked display of political outspokenness would have on the series.

“To paint the whole film industry with the same brush was so unfair and so demeaning” – says Manoj Bajpayee

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Features and Specials  
Actor Manoj Bajpayee looks back at 2020 and what can we expect in 2021!  How has 2020 treated you? Somehow I am of the opinion that no situation is extreme. Nothing is completely good or bad. What we experienced was a year of turmoil. But I think we were fortunate compared with migrant labourers on the road. I feel blessed that we were able to adjust to the lockdown and somehow find our way out of the situation, do our meetings, interviews on the phone—thank God for technology—so that way most of us were blessed. But remembering what so many migrants on the road had to face, I feel the year was terrible for them. I pray that all those who suffered come back to normal. May God give them the strength to find their normalcy. Your biggest takeaway from last year’s crisis? It’s excessive greed that caused this worldwide crisis. It’s also a warning not to take nature for granted. The water, the greenery, the plants and the animals…don’t misuse them or you will lose them. If we don’t take ..
