BWW Review: INTIMATE APPAREL at Playhouse On Park
by Joseph Harrison - Feb 20, 2018

The art of creation, whether it be a beautiful painting, a poem, or a piece of clothing can be a very personal experience. The artist expresses herself through each stroke of the pen or flick of the paintbrush and aims to capture the world as she sees it or as she would like it to be. But creation, like life, can be as messy as it is beautiful, as flawed as it is perfect, and as simple as it is magnificent. Such is The Life of Esther Mills, the character at the center of Pulitzer Prize winner, Lynn Nottage's play, INTIMATE APPAREL, which is now playing at West Hartford's Playhouse on Park. (more...)

Rajkummar Rao has been chosen as the Best Actor of 2017 for his performances in 'Newton' directed by Amit V Masurkar, 'Trapped' by Vikramaditya Motwane and 'Bareilly Ki Barfi' directed by Ashwini Iyer Tiwari. The actor from Gurgaon emerged the clear winner followed by Irrfan at 2nd position for his work in varied films like 'Hindi Medium,' 'Doob: No Bed of Roses' (a Bangladesh India co-production)and 'Qarib Qarib Single.' The third top performer on the IFI list is Pankaj Tripathy seen in 'Gurgaon,' 'Newton,' 'Bareilly Ki Barfi' and 'Anaarkali of Aarah' in 2017. The survey conducted by the Indian Film Institute an NGO and a Not for Profit body invited top 14 Film Critics of the country through a rating mechanism where a film rated by the Critic at No. 1 spot got 10 marks while the one placed at No. 10 got 01 mark and so on.

Speaking about the survey Manjulaa Shirodkar, Director, Indian Film Institute said, 'The pan India exercise is the first-of-its-kind done in the country to reach a consensus among critics to assess the best of Indian cinema. They were asked to share their preferences and not provided a shortlist. What is heartening to note is that the films that made it to the top are those which have the backing of mainstream production houses like Disney India; Junglee Pictures, T Series and Prakash Jha Productions. 'And it is great to see that the actors adjudged the best, be it Rajkummar Rao, Vidya Balan, Irrfan or Ratna Pathak Shah, enjoy fan following across spectrum, blurring the fine lines between so called mainstream and niche cinema. The IFI seeks to redefine the film appreciation dynamics in our country through this exercise.' Of the 52 films that came up in the final listing, 3 from the top 10 are directed by women filmmakers. Interestingly, Aamir Khan's production 'Secret Superstar' was tied with Jagga Jasoos at No.9 while a small budget film like 'Harikatha Prasanga' on The Life of a Yakshagana artist directed by Ananya Kasarvalli tied at No. 10 along with Atanu Ghosh's Mayurakshi. Each of the Top 10 films has successfully experimented with content and genre. Take Jagga Jasoos, A Death in the Gunj, Mukti Bhavan, Trapped, Ajji, Take Off and even Harikatha Prasanga. Clearly content and script are the winners in the IFI list. The Indian Film Institute is a Not for Profit NGO established by Filmmaker, Film Festival Director Manoj Srivastava and Film Critic and Film Historian Saibal Chatterjee. The NGO works for the benefit of film makers supporting them with free advice and resources. The IFI works for promotion of the cinematic art through Film Screenings, Film Festivals, Workshops, Master Classes, Film Appreciation courses and also funds researches on Indian Cinema. (more...)
