When Mainak and I met in the summer of 2014 for one of our casual lunches, I arrived at the little hole-in-the-wall Nepali joint with the biggest question on my mind: will I eat the aloo-puri or the mixed vegetable curry with rice? Both were so damn delicious, it was always tough to choose one over the other. Moreover, those were the only two vegetarian dishes, so not like I had much choice. It was still a puzzling one though. When I left the little hole-in-the-wall Nepali joint, however, I had an even bigger question on my mind: what the hell’s wrong with Mainak, and why does he want to make a movie about two people talking to each other in a car about life?Continue reading “The “417 Miles” Diary”
Lets begin with acknowledging what a great line-up this years MAMI has brought to us. There are 175 films to watch. Even if you try to watch as many films as humanly possible, you could only see four films a day. If you are a insane person maybe few days you will end up seeing five. For every film you will watch you will be missing eight other films. See how important that decision is to watch a film? Many of you will follow lists published in the last few days. MFC, Pandolin, MadaboutMoviez. Each of those lists are excellent. But I’m giving you an alternate strategy: Don’t watch anything that will be available to watch later easily, in theaters, iTunes, streaming. This will likely eliminate more than half the films in the list you made in the last couple of days. It is controversial when I say don’t stand in line for 45 mins to watch Herzog’s Lo and Behold, but I believe that is the smart way to navigate a huge festival like this.
