I’m convinced that most if not all mainstream biopics tend to be hagiographies, at least to some extent. After all, if a major production house is willing to finance a movie with many crores at stake,...
It appears that Nagraj Manjule has a thing for depicting birds in flight flocking together in a pattern, a phenomenon known as ‘murmuration’ when used for starlings. It’s a leitmotif that is visible s...
