mythological TV series “Baba Kedarnath” Related News Singer-composer Kailash Kher now a producer says there are some filmmakers who highlight the “helplessness of India” in their movies in the name of creativity But he as an artiste will never follow suit as he believes that India has the power to heal the world Kailash is looking forward to the launch of his mythological TV series “Baba Kedarnath” which is backed by the Uttarakhand government With a strong spiritual content the TV show will introduce the “Teri deewani” hitmaker as a producer He says he would like to take up more projects revolving around the country as a producer but would never be part of a TV show or a movie that focusses on the poverty or other problems of India “There are filmmakers like Shyam Benegal who continue to explore the real Indian art Even Ashutosh Gowariker makes films about India like ‘Swades’ or ‘Lagaan’ They are some of the filmmakers who present India in a good light; otherwise people tend to make money by showing poverty of India and helplessness of India mostly in the name of creativity “This gives the impression that India is a poor country Irrespective of the strength of the script I will never show India like that I will show that India can save the world which is infected by depression and loneliness” Kailash told IANS in an interview The singer who hails from Meerut also added that India is widely known for yoga and so can propagate good health and happiness “In India you don’t need pills there is so much of affection and warmth We (he and his Kailasa band) recently went to Shillong by road Wherever we stopped they offered us water And there was so much of warmth… That’s our spiritual strength” he added He believes there is “so much of love and warmth” in India that anyone will be healed “People from the west run after India as India has the strength of spiritual healing Why can’t our own people …the generation of today accept that Instead of looking at the west it’s better to recognise our own art mythology spirituality and healing power” said Kailash And so he is doing his own bit “Whatever I do music will reflect me and my music is nothing but spirituality If I write about love my love angle will be about how the universe is made” said the “Allah ke bande” hitmaker As of now Kailash’s new album “Ishq Anokha” and the TV show which has seven songs sung by the industry’s celebrated names like Hema Malini Sonu Nigam Arijit Singh and Shaan are taking up most of his time “Day and night we are working on 16 tracks at a rocket’s speed” he said “For news

had long practice in spending entire days in dark theatres waiting for the next highly anticipated film to come on finishing it and rushing into the next And the next Twelve hours give or take a few minutes here or there with minor breaks to grab a hurried bite or to straighten a kink in the back at the movies Yes yes yes I have returned from the latest edition of the Mumbai Film Festival all filmed out but raring to get back again My time at the 18th Jio MAMI with Star to give it its mouthful of a moniker has been well spent despite my missing all over again the presence of a central hub where filmmakers and delegates and attendees can hang out It’s something that Kiran Rao and her colleagues Anupama Chopra and Smriti Kiran ( the trio which runs the festival) are aware of but they are also pleased that this year MAMI ‘increased its footprint’ and spread out its wares for more Mumbaikars from Kurla and Mulund to the city centre The unending schlep from one location to another has been made up by solid programming ( international and Indian and the inclusion of some really interesting documentaries) smart side-bars the second edition of the Movie Mela a Comic con-like event which caters to Bollywood fans ( this year’s highlight was the getting together of the cast and crew of ‘Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander’ even if the venue was not ideal) and endless discussions with other film crazy denizens As an invited guest I could side-step some of the bug-bears that infested the festival like the online booking procedure which showed full houses when there were in fact empty seats This is a problem I’ve seen the world over and there hasn’t been an analytic that has cracked it yet But what I really liked was the ease with which you could walk-in if there was space inside News filtering out on social media tells me that Vikramaditya Motwane’s ‘Trapped’ featuring Rajkummar Rao trapped in a high-rise without `khana’ `bijli’ and `paani’ received a rousing cheer from those who managed to snag a seat I’m kicking myself for having returned at the half-way mark and missing this one and some of the others which looked promising But c’est la vie and all that because this is how it goes : you see some you miss the others Here are the highlights amongst the ones that I watched Who would have thought that Saudi Arabia could come up with such a delightful comedy like ‘ Barakah Meets Barakah’ in which an unlikely romance flowers between an unlikely couple This one I club under the ‘unexpected delights category’ which make up those films you walk into knowing nothing and coming away surprised in a good way Also read |Filmmaking has become a business says JayaBachchan Cristian Mungiu has been wowing us with his films for a while now ( his ‘4 Months 3 weeks and 2 Days’ is a modern classic) ‘Graduation’ gives us a bunch of characters grappling with small things which become big and life itself : there are few filmmakers who can do this with such dexterity and Mungiu is high on that list I missed fest favourite Ken Loach’s ‘I Daniel Blake’ which won the Palm D’Or at Cannes this year but I’m told it will have a theatrical release in early 2017 Good for all of us I made up by catching Mendonca Filho’s ‘Aquarius’ a gentle rumination on the past and present through the eyes of a 65-year-old woman and Thomas Vinterberg’s wry look at humans and how they

campaigns) the film is an important document on how a brash new entrant challenged and threw aside entrenched power structures I could go on about what I saw and didn’t but more than anything else
