Viceroy’s House. A Tale of Two Countries by Gurinder Chadha

Gurinder Chadha’s Viceroy’s House will be in theatres on September 1, 2017. The movie records India of 1947 – how a bloody conflict ensued between the country’s Hindu- Sikh majority and Muslim minority that sought Pakistan, how British colonial rule informed those tensions, and how the last viceroy Lord Mountbatten was not the cunning architect of partition, but a man caught up unawares in a bigger political game. London based director Gurinder Chadha, known for Bend It like Beckham, has a personal connection to these events – her Indian grandparents lived through the partition that displaced 14 million people...

Metro Vancouver’s most romantic concert with Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik

It was a three hour romantic concert at PNE Agrodome. If you are from my generation of Bollywood lovers, you heard Kumar Sanu songs when you first fell in love, you heard them at your first heartbreak and you heard them on your honeymoon. And maybe when you got divorced. 4000 romantic Vancouverites were at PNE Agrodome on Sunday evening, April 30 to hear Sanu with Alka Yagnik in concert. I think romance and heartbreak live in the same corner of our hearts because we go to the same songs in all these emotions. Sanu came dressed in a...
