No Country For Old Men…Or Women?

For some years now, economic and strategic think tanks at home and abroad have been abuzz with predictions of India rising rapidly as an economic – and by extension, a geopolitical – powerhouse in the near future. This heartening prophecy

Uncommon Wealth Records

As Dangal’s phenomenal, all-conquering run at the box office draws to a close, now is a good time to take stock of – and marvel at – the spectacular numbers and records achieved by what is now the highest-grossing Hindi

Judge Dread

India has often been described, not unjustifiably, as a functioning anarchy. Credit for the ‘functioning’ part of that description should largely go to our judiciary, which very often steps in to get the two other pillars of the nation’s governance

Clowning un-Glory

Dictionaries define the medieval concept of the ‘court jester’ as: ‘a clown or buffoon who is employed by a noble or royal for entertainment; also called fool’. Sounds familiar? It does read like a pretty apt description of how we,

City Scan

During the course of various studies on this page, we have often seen that while the healthy top line of certain films and the occasional good quarter may sometimes present a decent macro picture, zooming in to ground level shows

Worst Among Unequals

In the run-up to the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum that was held last week in Davos, a study highlighting growing inequalities of wealth across the world was released by Oxfam, a global confederation of NGOs and charitable

Report Scarred

The year kicked off in right earnest this week, with 2017’s first releases hitting the screens on Friday, and a host of A-league biggies waiting in the wings. Indeed, if you check out the release calendar compiled on the ‘Next

Pitch Report

Sometimes, the most effective way to appreciate how far you have come is to remember where you were. So with tongue only slightly in cheek, here’s our throwback to the past. Imagine, if you will, that we are in the

’16’s Significant 10

There are good years, bad years, mediocre years… and then you have absolutely topsy-turvy years like the one we just witnessed! A year in which some pretty heavy artillery misfired while some unheralded underdogs punched way above their weight. A

Scar-city?

In our edit note a couple of weeks ago, (Screen Short?, issue dated December 10, 2016) we had examined how India compared with other major film centers across the world in terms of screen density or the availability of film

Money For Nothing… Dire Straits?

Last month, on the evening of November 8, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi made the startling announcement that `500 and `1,000 notes would cease to be legal tender in a few hours’ time, we, like much of the country, had

Screen Short

Occasionally, on this page, we crunch some numbers to examine where the Indian film industry stands vis-à-vis the major film markets globally on various parameters. In one such recent study, (Chinese Checkers, issue dated November 19, 2016), we had compared

Her-story Repeats Itself?

The film trade, much like the nation at large, continues to grapple with the acute cash shortage and a very visible slowdown in consumer spending. Thankfully, in this gloomy climate of financial uncertainty, some much-needed cheer has been provided by

Divine Inspiration

It’s an old joke but the passage of time hasn’t made it any less funny: a professor of creative writing explained to his class that the four key ingredients of commercial writing were royalty, sex, religion and mystery as they

Chinese Checkers

We often like to think of ourselves as, admittedly, not an equal, but at least a parallel bastion of power to Hollywood in the global filmmaking pecking order. The US may be the world’s biggest film industry in revenue terms,

Normal is Boring?

An English expression thought to be a translation of a traditional Chinese curse states: may you live in interesting times. At first, it appears puzzling that the phrase would be considered malicious or bearing ill-will. Aren’t ‘interesting times’ preferable to

Minority Report

Testimonials to the love affair that Indians have with cinema – and film stars – can be found everywhere – from the posters glued on the walls of small-town barber shops, to the hand-painted star portraits decorating bhel-puri carts, and

Club 100: Admit Two

As we motor on towards Diwali, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story continues to light up the box office with its crackling performance. With a three-week tally of Rs.118 crore (excluding dubbed versions) and counting, the film’s collections’ trajectory is not

Community Service

In so many ways, the India we live in today is a product of the events and developments that took place in the 1990s. Chief among these is the economic liberalisation programme undertaken by the Finance Minister at that time,

A Significant Quarter

The recently-concluded third quarter of 2016 was a very interesting period indeed for the trade, and that’s putting it mildly.  Q3 both began and ended with a bang, thanks to Sultan and MS Dhoni: The Untold Story that marked the
