Fresh suicide - Short Film by Anupam Barve Receives as critical acclaim
Anupam Barve is an avid film buff from Pune, India. After a brief detour to science college, he opted to complete a graduation in Performing Arts. Before moving to London t pursue a career in film direction, he spent a few years doing drama, making documentaries and running an environmental organisation called TekdiPune.
Quote:
"Fresh Suicide is semi-autobiographical. As a final project film on the MA in Film Direction course at the University of Westminster, I wanted to make a film which was mine, which came out of my own identity and awareness. I have been in this situation as Anurag in the film. It is very personal. We all know how insensitive media is about such issues, but what is more disturbing is the way western media looks at these matters. It is also very disturbing to see how we still look up to the white skin. It is also about the young urban India getting sandwiched between Western Culture and one's own roots. Especially when he/she finds he is detached from both."
Synopsis
Fresh Suicide is a realistic portrayal of a young Indian translator working with an American journalist, who is doing a photo feature on farmers' suicides in rural India. In the process of looking out for a recent suicide case, he is sandwiched between his duty and sensitivity, aggressive Western journalism and the disturbing colonial hangover that still looms over most of rural India.

Abhinav is not the only Devaki of Hindi Cinema.

<p> When Farhan Akhtar decided to remake Don, its director Chandra Barot was in tears for not even being asked as a courtesy. That time he could only share his pain and humiliation being meted to him.<br /> Cinematorium<br /> By Pankaj Shukla<br /> Though, no one knows what transpired between a hard working director like Abhinav Kashyap and a nice human being like Salman Khan, but the world knows that Abhinav is not doing Dabangg 2 anymore.. The amendments that have been proposed in Copy Right Act and have been vehemently opposed by Film Producers’ body suggest that a writer and a director must have a share of Intellectual Property Right in every film that is made in India. If these amendments were in place as an act, Abhinav could not have been thrown out of Dabangg so unceremoniously.<br /> Question is not whether Abhinav wants to direct the sequel or not, the issue is who owns intellectual rights of a product that has been proved beneficial in the market. Sanjay Gadhvi conceptualized and conceived Dhoom series but now he is no more associated with its third version. And, he cannot even complain about it. When Farhan Akhtar decided to remake Don, its director Chandra Barot was in tears for not even being asked as a courtesy. That time I met him in Sahara Motion Picture’s Office and he could only share his pain and humiliation being meted to him.<br /> Don was one among the few films that started a trend of portraying the hero as a bad man. Ashok Kumar did do these kind of roles in his films long back but his was a different case as in Jewel Thief (1963) he was the main villain and long before to this even in Kismat (1943) he played a con man, Don ushered a totally new era of mainstream hero crossing over the border line of Good Vs. Evil.<br /> Dabangg is a turning point of Indian Society and its liking for corruption. If in the films like Don and so many other films where the hero was a bad guy and was loved by the public, it was still clear that he is on the other side of the law. Chulbul Pandey was with the law and a corrupt officer, but people loved him. It was celebration of corruption by Indian society why else people will make a film like this one of the best earner of Hindi film industry. Good that cases of corruption like 2 G scam, CWG scam, Adarsh Scam and Hasan Ali Scam have emerged and not the functionary but the judiciary had to take charge of the situation, otherwise soon we could have seen thousands of Chulbul Pandeys in each and every village, street and town of this country. I feel relieved that Abhinav is no more involved in this kind of regressive cinema. It is a boon in disguise for him and his talent. He can leave his marks in the history of cinema by making some more meaningful films and he is more than capable of doing so.<br /> Having been associated with world of Hindi Cinema very closely for nearly two decades now as journalist, I can only say this industry lacks courage of accepting someone who is not from their family in general and runs on use and throw policy in particular. Abhinav’s case is an eye opener for policy makers in the parliament of the country and it is high time that Amendments in Copy Right Act are finalized and places in the parliament.<br /> Other Article:<br /> Why Oscars?
