Kolkata, Dec 15, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio / Penning Creations) Rolling disco lights and Lady Gaga blasting through the speakers, among other pop stars. You would imagine it was some kind of glamor fest.

Wasn’t quite a red carpet ambience to send you in to an enamoured, glitzy, and excited fit, but this was the launch party of one of Tollywood’s latest ventures "Dekh Kemon Lage".

Held at The Basement, the launch was supposed to coincide with the shooting of the very first scene of the movie. The evening was attended by most of the cast and crew. Of them, the leads Sujoy Ghose and Disha Roy began the liaison with the media, providing brief snippets of what to expect of the film.

The movie consists of the Gods questioning the male dominated state of today’s society, and deciding to do something about it. The only obvious option is reversing the trend.

The movie is going to be directed by producer Rithvik Bhattacharya, making his directorial debut. Containing their emotions and possibly hiding their excitement about the movie, most of the cast remained coy on the storyline of the film.

One thing is certain though, taking on the concept of a male dominated society will not be something Tollywood has not dealt with before. Aparna Ray’s Paroma would be the first example that comes to mind. But that was a serious treatment of the delicate nature of men assuming the right to flex their muscles over the fairer sex.

But it would be fair to say that a comedic take on the subject has never been attempted by one of India’s oldest film industries. This could be tricky. The male lead Sujoy Ghose however, was extremely excited about it.

When it comes to movie franchises, very few enjoy as much popularity as the ‘Mission Impossible’ series does. The daring adventures of Ethan Hunt and his colleagues have never failed to mesmerize the audience. Yet, unlike most other franchise films, consistency has never been a strong point of the ‘Mission Impossible’ movies. While the first film in the series, directed by Brian de Palma, was uniformly good, the second one, with John Woo at the helm, packed in too much of outlandish bike-chases and spy-masks. The third, arguably the weakest film in the series, suffered from a convoluted plot. Thankfully, with the latest addition to the series, ‘Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol’, director Brad Bird (of ‘The Incredibles’ and ‘Ratatouille’ fame) shows exactly how an entertaining, thrilling and stylish spy movie should ideally be made. So, how good is the film? Easily the best in the series!

‘Mission Impossible-Ghost Protocol’ (alternatively titled ‘Mission Impossible 4’) opens with Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) trying to get his hands on some extremely critical information related to Russian nuclear missiles. Hunt, however, is thwarted in his endeavours by the fundamentalist acts of ‘Kurt Hendricks’ (Michael Nyqvist), who steals the nuclear papers, bombs the Kremlin building and ensures that the IMF is framed for this act of vandalism. The Russian Government is seriously offended and a war seems unavoidable, unless, of course, our master protagonist, Hunt, can do something about it.

The mission (‘should he decide to take it’, in MIspeak!) requires Hunt to clear the name of the IMF from the mess and to bring the actual culprit to justice. With a team comprising of the technical genius Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg), the expert analyzer William Brandt (Jeremy Renner) and the beautiful and ambitious Jane Carter (Paula Patton), Hunt embarks on yet another ‘impossible’ mission, which simply has to succeed to prevent a nuclear war from breaking out between United States and Russia.

New Delhi, Dec 13, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio / PIB India) The International Film Festival of India has truly become the harbinger of creating a film culture among the people of the country. Though Indians are generally a cinema crazy nation with over 1000 features being made every year in about twenty languages and dialects, the people are becoming cine literate through the various Film Festivals that have started all over the country.

India held its first International Film Festival of India in 1952, but it was not until the 5th Festival in 1974 that this became an annual feature. However, it remained a roving festival for many years. The competitive IFFI was held every alternate year in Delhi with a non-competitive Filmotsav moving to other film producing centres in the intervening years.
