Devotees in Nagpur celebrated Marbat with great fervour today afternoon by burning effigies of a man with anti Pakistani placards on it.
The slogans were written primarily due to Pakistan’s reaction after the recent abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir when the former threatened India of a war.
The seffigies had slogans like ?Pakistan ke ghar pe nahi hai khana, Bharat ko jung ki dhamki dena? (Pakistan doesn’t have food at home and is threatening India of a war) and Kashmir toh hamara hai hi, ab POK bhi hamara? (Kashmir is ours and now even Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (POK) is also ours.)
As per tradition, devotees take out a procession carrying effigies that represent evil forces. The clay effigies or Marbats of Kali (black) and Pivli (yellow) are the main attraction of the procession, which are burnt by the locals.
And that’s how a film is made – Kantara shows the way! | Movie review
Social media is buzzing with one word today and that word is Kantara! Yes, another Kannada film after KGF that has caught the people’s fancy and how. In fact, this one goes a notch higher than KGF – because the film has been released only in Kannada with English subtitles and yet – the movie is capturing the hearts of people across India and the world.
From California, London and Berlin to cities across India, high praise is pouring in for the Rishab Shetty starrer and the actor-director’s Twitter feed is testimony to this. Ordinary cine-goers are putting screenshots of housefull bookings, sharing videos of people clapping and whistling in theatres and then profusely thanking the star for making this film.
So, what’s this film about? Kantara (which means forest in Sanskrit) stands out because it has powerful storytelling at its core. It is rooted in local folklore, has the right amount of action and adventure and comes with a social message too. Man versus nature, native customs and local politics, which spans three timelines and a climax that’s to die for, is what the film’s about. Add to this some superlative performances by the cast, a stellar background score by B Ajaneesh Loknath and mind-blowing cinematography by Arvind S Kashyap that serenades Karnataka’s rustic locales and you have what can be called the perfect recipe for a blockbuster film. Telling you more will just be a spoiler! So, what are you waiting for? Go watch!
