capabilities Related News MOM movie cast: Sridevi Nawazudin Siddiqui Akshaye Khanna Adnan Siddiqui Sajal Ali Abhimanyu Singh MOM movie director: Ravi Udyawar MOM movie rating: 2 stars Mom begins with promise Vivacious teenager Arya goes with her friends to a swinging party and instead of working off an illicit hangover the next morning and conducting giggly post-mortems with her school pals finds herself in a dark dark place First time feature filmmaker adman Ravi Udyawar sets it up deftly sketching Arya’s (Ali) rocky relationship with stepmother Devki (Sridevi) an overly compensating one with her father (Adnan Siddiqui) and younger sister There are some chilling sequences that we watch with our heart in our mouth: a black car circling the deserted streets of Delhi like a shark ; a bunch of entitled testosterone-filled jerks casing the joint in search of easy female prey; and how a party meant for fun and games can swiftly descend into terrifying chaos You recall those names—Jessica Lal Jyoti Singh — and so many other young women who don’t hit the headlines but make up the sickening assault count in the Capital And you shake yourself and wait for the track of righteous comeuppance to kick in We know how the rest of it will pan out given the countless rape-and-revenge thrillers churned out every so often: just a couple of months back Raveena Tandon was walking the same path in Matr The only way you can break through the clutter is via a plot boasting novelty and distinctive performances : unfortunately Mom’s plot is riddled with holes and is far too focused on Sridevi A still from the movie MOM When you start creating scenes to topline the actor not plot such as it is you do disservice to both Mom is so busy keeping Sridevi centre-stage that it makes this film much less impactful than it could have been It isn’t as if Sridevi who returns after a sizeable gap after English Vinglish can’t carry a film on her own Shorn of her mannerisms and pancake Sri needs only a twitch or a glance to prove that she is a powerhouse and there are several scenes she lifts by just being there But the film overdoes it and what could have been a taut thriller is reduced to being a showcase for Sridevi’s capabilities which we are fully aware of already It also leaves even someone as capable as Nawazuddin struggling to overcome a spectacularly ugly hair-piece and a sketchily written part He plays Detective DK who is to be seen playing a wholly inexplicable game of hide-and-seek with Devki which just serves to stretch the film needlessly The film side-steps this crucial question in its quest to do quirk As the four perpetrators (including a very vivid Abhimanyu Singh) seem to be getting off scot-free Devki gets going and from then on the improbabilities pile up Just how is a school biology teacher for that is what Devki is meant to know anything about breaking-and-entering and other things involving larceny The plot is distressingly vague about these details and we are left muttering just like poor Akshaye Khanna who shows up as a crime branch cop reaching the point post-facto There are other good actors here apart from Nawaz and Abhimanyu Sajal Ali who plays the young victim is particularly effective Adnan Siddiqui as Sridevi’s husband is very dishy but suffers from the same problem the rest of the cast : not enough heft The heavy-lifting is left to Sridevi and she goes all out But she is made to do too much: too much widening of the eyes too much narrowing of the mouth and too many things we don’t really believe she can do You want to see what she can really do give her a solid plot and see her make a meal of it Mom is not that film For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Related NewsHanoi: Vietnam on Thursday protested China’s recent activities in the disputed South China Sea saying they seriously violate Vietnamese sovereignty Chinese state media reported that two Chinese civilian aircrafts on Wednesday

as a UN arbitration tribunal this week ruled that China’s vast territorial claims are violating international maritime law South China Sea Getty The Hague-based Permanent Court of Arbitration ruled in favor of the Philippines which challenged Beijing’s expansive claims to virtually the entire South China Sea Beijing says it does not recognise the decision Vietnam Foreign Ministry spokesman Le Hai Binh demanded Beijing cease actions that complicate the situation "Despite the opposition of Vietnam and concerns by the international community those actions conducted by China have seriously violated Vietnam’s sovereignty and are unlawful and cannot change the fact about Vietnam’s sovereignty over the Hoang Sa and Truong Sa archipelagoes" Binh told reporters referring to the Paracel and Spratly islands in the South China Sea Binh reiterated that Vietnam has all "legal basis and historical evidences" to affirm its sovereignty over the two island chains Six regional governments have

became the first state to bring amendments in the draft GST bill to provide adequate compensation and protection to local bodies following enforcement of Goods and Services Tax from July 12017 The decision also means the state government will have to make financial provisions of more than Rs 15000 crore for the local bodies Following the draft GST bill Shiv Sena gave its approval to the Goods and Services Tax after the state government promised to credit the compensation amount in the BMC account before fifth of every month This has paved the way for smooth passage of the GST bill in the state legislature at the three-day special session from May 20 to 22 The state cabinet on Tuesday adopted the draft legislation by incorporating the compensation clause to replace the financial loss that would be incurred by the BMC and local bodies due to abolition of octroi and local body tax respectively Late Monday night the state government had provided a copy of the draft GST bill to Sena president Uddhav Thackeray The Sena president gave the nod after discussing the amendments with party leaders Highly placed sources in the government said “Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis reassured Thackeray that every financial loss on account of octroi would be adequately compensated As Mumbai was a very important economic capital the government was equally concerned about the civic issues and responsibilities” It is mandatory for every state to ratify the GST after Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha gave their approval in the Budget session The GST will be implemented from July 1 Following abolition of octroi in BMC and local body tax in municipal councils across Maharashtra the state government made amendments in the draft GST to make allocation of funds as compensation to the BMC and other local bodies mandatory The GST draft states “The state government will every month before fifth credit the amount in the accounts of BMC and local bodies” The total amount which the state will have to incur for local bodies is estimated at Rs 14500 crore of which BMC will be provided Rs 7200 crore as compensation for abolition of octroi Every year the amount will be increased by eight percent The state government acknowledged that every local body and BMC would require consolidated funds for civic work in their respective cities The implementation of GST mandating a unified tax

Bhanu Mehta | Updated: March 13 2014 10:48 am Related News Not only does it produce a vicious politics it colonises everything else as well Democracies are susceptible to traps of their own making One trap much in discussion these days is what David Runciman calls the “confidence trap” Democracies seem to have hypochondria about their own lack of capacity for decision-making particularly in international crises Autocratic governments seem to seize the initiative and do much better Democracies seem to fumble But this disadvantage turns out to be mostly illusory Democracies may be bad getting into crises but they are much better at getting out of them Their dithering is more than compensated for by their flexibility It is a very democratic thing to think that democracy is in crisis But there is another trap This is the partisan trap On one hand partisanship is as Russell Muirhead argued the lifeblood of democracy It is a principle of accountability: competition is what we use to keep others in check Partisanship is necessary for the formation of political identities for creating durable institutions around political ideas and for giving us a team to cheer A battle against a worthy political opponent is far more exciting than an anaemic politics of consensus building of gathering together in fuzzy warmth and vapid agreement On the other hand partisanship can unnerve a democracy It can produce rancour and gridlock and convert citizens into enemies The prospect of successful democracy depends on how it negotiates this tension The coming election has thrown up deeper challenges of partisanship than usual It is a deeply exciting election There are new political formations new leaders who may take India into uncharted territory But the excitement also unleashes unprecedented partisan fury that threatens to corrode all sense of proportion Our partisanship is of an unusual kind It does not involve the usual battle of different sensibilities balancing each other: left versus right the politics of privilege versus the politics of dispossession freedom versus restraint There are elements of these principles but the practices and commitments that give them content are often too vague or scattered across the political spectrum To be sure there is some general talk of governance But that rests on the attributes of persons not principles Our partisanship in this election is strong because it is centred on a discourse of virtue and vice: its very essence is not that ideas must be defeated but that persons must be brought down To an extent this is inevitable Narendra Modi’s candidacy was bound to generate this response For his passionate critics the core issue is his moral culpability and focusing on anything but that or even suggesting that he might have some other virtues is an act of deep betrayal For his loud and relentless defenders there is now a mystique of infallibility around him: to so much as concede that he might have made mistakes is to bring him down The AAP’s politics rests largely on showing how every party other than itself is compromised: it is shot through with the confidence of a self-declared virtue It is not an accident therefore that much of the argumentative space in this election is colonised by charges of hypocrisy: who can expose whom in fantasy at least if not in reality Some of this is healthy It is a necessary corrective to the veil of silence that political collusion had drawn over so much vice But we should be under no illusions that its lasting effects will go beyond the usual partisanship in politics The charges are traded and the contest is defined in such personal terms that the process of formal reconciliation that democracy depends on will be so much harder But there is another danger The very excitement of this election has drawn in new constituencies most notably journalists Cynics might be tempted to say that the interrogatory nature of this contest is particularly suited to journalistic talent In case we are being too harsh on our journalist colleagues it is worth remembering that Tocqueville had written that “the job of a journalist in America is to attack coarsely without preparation or without art to set aside principles in order to grab men” But the danger is slightly broader than simply journalists joining politics or having normative commitments They are citizens and entitled to make these choices It’s a good thing if people from several walks of life hitherto unconcerned with politics directly engage in it The danger is slightly different: the enchantment of partisanship may breach all boundaries and engulf any sense of proportion or objectivity The partisan contagion may corrode professional roles and judgement This corrosion comes in two forms In the most egregious cases it leads to selective reporting misplaced importance to certain facts sometimes even falsehoods In a more subtle form the worry is not falsehood but a certain monomania: where journalists become more like lawyers for a prosecution or a defence Their facts may not be wrong in a literal sense but their vocation is reduced to exactly the same partisan contest in politics: take down the opponent no matter what Such partisanship can like political partisanship be greatly motivating and productive But it can also be corrosive For one thing it is coming in a context where the media as an institution has a serious credibility crisis But more importantly it tends to collapse the intellectual and the political It is the essence of partisanship particularly one centred on the conviction of virtue to assume that virtue cannot be divided across parties It has become anathema to suppose that even though we may be convinced about who is best for India virtue and vice may not come in such neat packages John Stuart Mill saw the advantages of partisanship We should have a tolerance for “the one eyed man provided their eye is a penetrating one: if they saw more they would not see so keenly nor so eagerly pursue one course of inquiry” But he also realised that combative partisans rarely convince their opponents Where this clash has a salutary effect is on non-partisans This collision of arguments has an educative effect on them But the danger is not just that partisanship produces a vicious politics: it is that it colonises everything else as well For politics to work someone has to be above it Don’t underestimate the costs of misjudged partisanship The crisis of confidence in sections of American democracy are linked to it; partisan rancour excessively slowed down progress in India as well As partisans become more personal the scars of battle are also likely to be deeper There is no magical balance between partisanship and detached objectivity But a democracy that loses either is in danger of a partisan trap The writer is president Centre for Policy Research Delhi and a contributing editor for ‘The Indian Express’
