Movie Review: Nil Battey Sannata - A true masterpiece by a Debut Director

Nil Battey Sannata is an emotion-filled story of a single mother, Chanda Sahai and her daughter, Apeksha (Appu). The screenplay by the debut director, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, I must say couldn't have been presented in a better by any director. The movie is nothing but a smooth running drama without any twists and turns but with some exceptionally brilliant piece of acting and direction. The story is more about a parents' effort for their kids and at the end giving an excellent lesson of importance of education. In the movie, just like any other parent, Chanda , is full of dreams of a bright future of her daughter. She is trying to raise Appu, but finding it difficult along-with all the hard-work and labor she has to do in order to get money for the schooling and food. However, Appu is unable to perform at school and is pretty adamant on not caring for education. A resentful mindset for life-standard which her mother is able to provide her an

The Grave Gravity...!!!

The grave gravity, No one understands you. And until the situation turns blue , People don't realize you .   (Being a science freak, it becomes mandatory to mention Einstein, right? :P ) An attempt to draw the great Einstein using Dot-Rendering...!!! School teachers declared Albert Einstein insane, And the whole world declared him a retard. Later that retard lad gave a theory, And now to understand that theory people are ready to give rewards. Although Newton realized gravity, Only after apple fell. Later Einstein's theory defied it saying it's space-time continuum, But how everything is interwoven continuum, it took 100 years before anyone could tell. (Many times we underestimate kids, the best example for why we shouldn't do that) Youngsters fall in love, Get married. After marriage they realize, The big mistake they did when in love they got carried. (okay so coming to a serious note, when we don't underst
