‘Billu’ needs a trim

(Baradwaj) ‘Billu Barber’ is an update to Krishna and self-effacing Sudama... A film flunkey marches up to the local grocer and asks if he stocks asparagus and jalapenos. Priyadarshan is so in-your-face, I miss the underrated ‘Aaja Nachle.’

Poets, priests and politicians

(WaPo) Musharraf jammed Aaj’s signal 15x since emergency. Channels are back on air but specific anchors are banned, and you can’t criticize the gov’t. With high illiteracy, TV is the main news source. ‘In the end, a dictator is a dictator.’ Duh.
