s like knowing a magic trick.s Jaagte Raho or the immensely enjoyable 1959 noir Howrah Bridge (with that terrific song,Kahin Mukherjee kahin Banerjeekahin Ghosh kahin Datta haiSuno ji yeh Kalkatta

Bombay/ Mumbaithe uncrowned First City of Hindi cinemaand increasinglyDelhi But more than its lovingdetailed embrace of all that makes Kolkata distinctivefrom musty government offices to the old-world charm of Park Street restaurantswhat makes Kahaani truly remarkable (and it is surprising that so few people have remarked on iteven when going on about Vidya Balan a heroine carrying the film on her shoulders)is that this is a city film with a woman at its centre For the female Hindi film viewerthere is much joy to be derived simply from watching a woman walking the streets of an Indian cityoften alone and doing so with pleasure To be sureVidya Bagchis wanderings are not quite the pleasurably aimless saunterings of a flaneur that attractive Baudelairian-Benjaminian creaturethe gentleman stroller of 19th century Paris whose only reason to walk the city is to experience ithas remained to this day irredeemably male Kahaanis heroinelike almost every woman in an Indian cityhas a good reason to be out and about Her reason is so elementalin fact searching for her missing husbandthe father of her unborn child that her journey might have been shot as a mission YetremarkablySujoy Ghoshs film manages to keep alive a sense of the city as a space that isnt just something that a woman must negotiatecircumventbattle with but might actually savour This is so rare an achievement as to be spectacular To set it in context: any wandering through cities by women in contemporary Hindi movies is one of two types The first is in foreign localeswhere such wanderings are deemed safeand good upper middle class Indian girls can thus liberate unhappy boys: refer to Katrina Kaifs carpe diem diving instructor in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobarateaching Hrithik Roshans uptight banker how to truly live (through holidays in Spain)or Kareena Kapoor in Ek Main Aur Ekk Tuspeeding through Los Angeles (and life) on a pink electric scooty in a happy haze that couldnt be more different from Imran Khans unhappy plodding The second type of girl-in-the-city scenario is a spree that takes place before arranged marriage to a suitable boy Here the safety of the wild-child heroine is ensured by her being in the company of a man (usually the boy-we-know-shes-actually-falling-in-love-with) think Nargis Fakhri in Rockstargiggling through a morning show with her Jatboy BFF Ranbir Kapooror Katrina in Mere Brother ki Dulhan knocking back beers with Imran the night before she marries his brother Of coursethere are exceptions to this typology No One Killed Jessica (Vidya Balan againcriss-crossing Delhi to get justice for her murdered sister)The Girl in Yellow Boots (Kalki Koechlin traversing seedy city underbellybut shes British and psychologically damaged) and Delhi Belly where Poorna Jagannathan plays a journalist caught up in a crazy urban adventure But rarelyif everhave we had a protagonist like Vidya Bagchia woman who travels alone to a new city and takes it as her right that she should be able to stay as long as she likesalone and unharassedin a cheap hotel Whether she is drinking tea at a street stallor haunting a particular police station until they respond to her request for helpshe is neither setting out to be radicalnor on some temporary joyride She is simply doing what all womeneverywhereought to be able to do but so rarely feel confident enough to In a country in which a spate of rapes only spurs the administration to suggest curfews for womena film like Kahaani feels like a collective dream the unvoiced dream all women havein which the city might belong to us as much

9:46 am Aamir Khan has said no to screening Dangal in Pakistan as the censor board there wanted the Indian flag and Anthem to be cut from the film Related News Aamir Khan’s Dangal could have added to its already-spilling coffers with a grand opening in Pakistan that recently opened its doors to Indian films once again But Aamir Khan has reportedly said no-show after Pakistan’s censor board demanded two crucial cuts in the film which has broken all box office records and earned critical acclaim — the scene where Indian flag and National Anthem are there needed to go say reports The ban

Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra Aamir Khan and his team were okay with the release of the film in the neighbouring country However according to reports in Hindustan Times the Pakistan censor board apparently has problems with two particular scenes in the film Both the scenes are towards the climax of the film While one shows the Indian Flag the other has Indian National Anthem playing in the background According to an insider quoted in the report the censor board wanted both the scenes edited out of the film before release Aamir was apparently surprised by this request especially since

to release the film in Pakistan Even though the film might result in about Rs 10-12 crore in loss Aamir is reportedly not ready to edit the scenes Dangal recently signed a contract with Netflix to the tune of Rs 20 crore for screening the film and before that the movie also collected Rs 385 crore at the Indian box office Aamir Khan who also happens to be the producer of the film is apparently aware that his decision could lead to piracy This is not the first time Pakistan censor board had an issue with Hindi films since the ban was lifted Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees was not allowed screening as it
