Vindication

Now that Dev.D is doing so well, please remember that it was Nanga Fakir who first hailed Anurag Kashyap as India's Tarantino-meets-Scorsese.

[Yes, Nanga Fakir saw the movie and was totally won over]

Here's a terrific piece by Kashyap in Tehelka about his struggles in the Hindi film industry.

PS 1: Gulaal hits the screens in March. Be there.

PS 2: Speaking of Tarantino, the long wait finally seems to come to an end. Inglourious Basterds will finally be out in May!

I don't know...tarantino's usp is he brings humor to the dark materials...with kashyap...there's no such thing...he doesn't tickle the funny bone in his potrayal of dark subjects.

I was told it was being called "Hindie Cinema"

Well, till yesterday it was being called Hindi new wave, at least in PFC circuits

The Gulaal trailer, however, after awesome Dev D/No Smoking/Black Friday trailers, leaves much to be desired...

<*Sigh*> True enough...but I'm sure the movie will be at least as good, if not better than Dev D.
