    Raja Makutam
      Directed by B. Narasimha Reddy, the most creative director of Telugu Cinema, the plot is an adaptation of Shakespeare's Hamlet with significant changes. The plot lines of the Shakespearean play that portrays the queen marrying the king's murderer and the tragic ending were removed. Instead, in the film, after the king's murder by his prime minister, the queen and the prince form a team. Prince feigns madness as in the play but the conclusion was changed to a happy ending. The film is melodramatic and beautifully captured showing creativity through dance and dialogue. A very interesting movie to watch

    Occam’s Razor, Ishrat Jehan’s easy death
    On June 15, 2004 a 19-year old college going girl from suburban Mubra (60 km from Mumbai) was shot dead by the Gujarat police. The charge leveled      at her (till date, without substantiating it, by enough convincing proofs), was that she was part of a terrorist group who was out on a mission to assassinate the Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi. Based on the principle of Occam’s Razor (“If you have two theories which both explain the observed facts, then you should use the simplest until more evidence comes along”), the film examines the possible versions and raises questions about the manner in which “Encounter killings” are carried out in this country.

    When the whole city burns with communal rage, what does one do when he has more than just himself to save?
