A Potpourri of Vestiges ReviewBy Murtaza Ali KhanFeatured in IMDb Critic ReviewsIf one looked at the origins of Indian cinema then one would be surprised to learn about the extent of mythological influence. Dadasaheb Phalke, the father of Indian cinema, saw great potential in the retelling of tales from the Hindu mythology. The germ of the idea was born when he watched a silent film called The Life of Christ in a tent theatre. Having seen the evocative images of Jesus Christ in the film he envisioned a similar depiction of the Hindu gods and goddesses in Indian films, and the rest is history. About three decades after Phalke made India’s first film Raja Harishchandra, Ghanta...

A Potpourri of Vestiges ReviewBy Vivaan ShahA Still from Outcast of the IslandsThe curious case of Sir Carol Reed is something that can perhaps be attributed at least in part to what Michael Atkinson refers to as the 'casualties of the auteur theory'. Although he has more than a discernible style to his work he is never quite regarded in the same fashion as his lauded contemporaries like Hitchcock, John Ford, Howard Hawks et al. His practical craftsmanship was always conflated with a workmanlike approach. Michael Powell said he could put together a film the way a watchmaker puts together a watch. He is perhaps mostly known in most circles as the director of 'The Third Man', a film whose exce...
