It was not before the 9pm Newshour on Times NOW that I found out Mamata Banerjee's new 'stunt' of Mamatagiri. And as I heard Arnab Goswami conduct the one hour show in the manner that he usually does,( I've never really found an adjective that describes it perfectly) I found out that Madam Chief Minister had expressed her disagreement to the Railway Budget that was presented by Dinesh Trivedi, an MP in power from the TMC party itself.
The discussions went on and I had this extreme urge to write on it but I didn't touch my laptop because my books were calling out to me: they just needed my attention.
Then, this morning my friend decided to take me to a morning show movie and I agreed. We set out to watch the 'mother of a story' and then! In the 120 minutes, I forgot all about Mamatadidi because Bidya was far more fascinating.I forgot all about the problems and chaos that has befallen our state. I forgot that we are in the hands of a Government that is pointing finger at each other. I was amazed to see Vidya, aka, Bidya Bagchi; as she took it upon herself to find her way to justice instead of justice finding her.
On hindsight, I thought upon the last dialaogue that says Ma Durga comes to Earth and washes away all negativity. The reinforcement of that bit of information, made me think: Might we have Mid-term polls post Durga Puja this year?
If books are page-turners, films are no-eye-blinkers. And this one surely falls in that category!
So, if you are disheartened by seeing the "Ides of March: Bengal 2012 Version", where Mamata plays Brutus and Dinesh, Caesar; book your tickets for this movie and you'll surely enjoy it.
