What is the story behind the name Ballad Of Rustom?A. This film is about those people who hail from small towns and seem very ordinary, but have extraordinary talent. It’s a ballad because the story is set to music.Q. Is the director an androgynous concept for you?A. The director is an individual. It’s not about being male or female. Most characters in my film are men. As an artist, I believe a human being encompasses a whole range of ideas and for me it’s irrelevant to debate the man-woman angle.Q. Why did you choose filmmaking as a medium of expression?A. No other art form comes as close as cinema does in portraying the human experience. It’s a beautiful medium.Q. Do you care for distinctions between mainstream and alternative cinema?A. There should be no boundaries or labels. It’s all about having an inclusive film culture in India. We should all aspire for original, imaginative work.Q. Why did you experiment with medium and technology for Ballad Of Rustom?A. I shot my film on 35mm cinemascope with sync (live) sound. It was an intentional aesthetic choice for I love 35mm film and I am old school when it comes to making movies.Health kickGreat news.

For thousands of women in post-Putin Russia, the Pussy Riot, a collective of left-wing feminists, are a symbol against the Kremlin and it’s dictatorial policies.

Get comfortable with the flash and lighting options and make sure you pack enough extendable memory.

Relaxation is all well and good, but to get your blood pumping and your adrenaline running is important too. Don’t just snooze through your next break, find a new experience.Switch off. No Blackberries, no Facebook, no Twitter, no texting. Ban technology and if you must use your iPhone at all, it should be to locate the closest local attraction.Be your own guide. All you get on pre-arranged tour guides is a busload of old people and souvenirs that burn a hole in your pocket. Draw out your own travel plan and make sure you experience a city by walking its streets.Don’t be shy. Of eating, of talking and letting yourself go. Be careful of tricksters and pick-pockets but don’t be afraid of trying new things on vacation, local food and wine being on top of that list.Keep a journal. A daily log of what you did, where you went and what you saw. This way, you can always re-visit your vacation without forgetting the little details.Fresh stock (New Releases)Rabbit Rap By Musharraf Ali Farooqui and Michelle FarooquiMidsummer Station By Owl CityThe Expendables 2 Starring Sly Stallonelast_img read more
