New Harry Potter Stage Play A Sequel

By Aglaia Staff

When news of the upcoming play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” first broke in June, rumors swirled and everyone started making their own guesses on the production’s plot.

But new details have emerged on the two-part play, which author J.K. Rowling developed with playwright Jack Thorne and director John Tiffany. It is set to premiere on London’s West End in 2016.
Most notably, we now know the play will be a sequel and should be considered the series’ “eighth story,” set to take place 19 years later, contradicting early reports predicting the play would be a prequel.
The epilogue to the final book, ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,’ takes place 19 years after the events of the book, and sees Harry, along with his friends Ron and Hermione, dropping their children off at the Hogwarts Express.”

We’re also now seeing the first images of the play’s official artwork, which shows a child hunched inside a nest that appears to have black wings.
Below is a brief plot decription about what we can expect from the production:

“It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.”
Preview performances will officially begin on June 7 and July 30 will mark the world premiere opening night.

An emotionally angry Simbu said, “I have been in this industry since I was a 9 months old child and I will not tolerate someone new coming in and breaking the cinema family. I won’t be quiet watching all this.

Referring to Vishal’s objection to leasing the Nadigar Sangam building out to SPI cinemas to construct a theatre among others, Simbu questioned if Vishal could make a career in films without theatres. Responding to Vishal’s argument of there are schools in the locality, Simbu asked, “Is theatre a TASMAC (liquor) shop?… If a theatre can’t come up there, what else should be built there? A bar or a club? …Will a true cinema-loving theatre owner ever screen a film of yours tomorrow?”

By Aglaia Staff

Ramis told the Wall Street Journal in 2009: “My early movies were all about individuals against institutions, and empowering the underdogs. I always thought of our characters as smart rebels, as opposed to losers.”

Described by film producer Brian Glazer as “the father of the modern Hollywood comedy”, Ramis was inducted into the St Louis Walk of Fame in 2004 and was the recipient of the Austin Film Festival’s Distinguished Screenwriter Award in 2005.

Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram-Leela

By Sunil Kumar

Big Will; King of the Hill was born in Stratford-on-avon. In India; we live in a stratified society; which is apparently open. Most of our movies revolve or did revolve around a central theme; romantic love. This formula has been so accepted; that cinema verite (realistic movies) never gained ground. Probably in the past few years; but bring out the old “Benerasi Babu” and “Bambai Se Aaaya Mera Dost”. Is this good or bad? Well; I will judge. In keeping the country from becoming a clone of the West; as practically everything and everywhere seems to be these days; Bharatiya cinema has done a great and sometimes commendable job. In making us sometimes groan and guffaw; there is no need to spell my sentiments out.

So, case in point; Ram-Leela. The Gujarati take on Romeo and Juliet. Shakespeare would never have thought writing for Elizabeth; that his story would have such universal appeal. In this 21st century adaptation; we are treated to Twitter updates; vile expletives and gun-toting rivalry apart from the predictable “love’s got everything to do with it”.

First the good parts. Unlike some of my Dravidian and other counterparts; I do not believe in pretentious negativity. It sometimes get jarring when every word uttered from somebody’s mouth seems only geared to prove profundity. Ahem! We have been born with a halo that guarantees us to blast everything. Note that me has nothing to do with this movie or anything else. In the new world; I only objectively assess what’s in front of my eyes.

Elaborate sets are now a Bhansali staple; so yes there’s the visual element. I found Padukone’s acting interesting; but the whole thing seems to be getting predictable. The positives in this movie are the rich colours; the interesting backdrop and the action sequences. Now for the cons in my humble opinion. The story did not appeal to me; and as such it was not that exciting. Coupled with the fact that the end based on “Romeo and Juliet” was known to me; killed the suspense. The dances however were fabulous. The Udaipur City Palace; one of the locations used in this movie looked wonderful.

If 500 year old enmities were supposed to add a touch of gravity; then sadly that was not the case. The old dame in the movie’s jokes were hilarious; but they were more in the line of what one would listen to everyday; not something which seeks to arrive at artistic finesse. Probably; the sign of the times.

Some of the other movies; such as, Kundan Shah‘s “Mirch Masala” also based in a similar setting were more engaging in a story sense. The world displayed in this movie is not realistic. The Priyanka Chopra “item number” was a foregone conclusion; but please Bollywood directors and producers; get us more of yesteryear. The long furtive glances; the subtle lights and the lyrical poetry. Not the dhinchak-dhinchak open blouses and “Ram Chahe Leela; Leela Chahe Ram”. Watchable; if you like such stuff!
