Magazine Description

In this issue

There is something very endearing about cinema that is independent. From the very first look you know the focus is content, story and keeping it authentic. As I was going through the final edits of our Film Issue, I was so intrigued that all I wanted to do was stay indoors for two days straight and watch all the marvelous films we have featured. All the films in our issue are extremely gripping, dark, twisted, disturbing and at the same time very real. This issue is all about celebrating indie cinema. And spearheading it is our Cover Story led by one of the finest actors India has seen in recent times, Rajkummar Rao. His effortless acting and extremely riveting and consistent performances have made him a critics’ and audience favourite. This year alone he was trapped in a one man film, he played a 324-year-old man, was the protagonist in a film that is India’s entry to The Oscars and stole the show in an out-an-out commercial film—one can safely say Rajkummar Rao is brilliance personified. We also have Tumhari Sulu, The Illegal, Karma and Pahuna, directed by four promising debut filmmakers who have each written their own story and created original content. Moving away from the world of cinema we feature Dr. Mahinder Watsa, now 93, who has been giving sex advice since he was a little over 25. Documentarian Vaishali Sinha interacts with him and trails his journey through her documentary, Ask the Sexpert. The ever-brilliant photographer Dayanita Singh shares notes from her life, her likes, dislikes and Museum Bhavan. We get you a page from Jeet Thayil’s gripping new book, The Book of Chocolate Saints and talk to the darling of Indian theatre, Lillete Dubey. Our Fashion Story takes us on a trip of dance and rapturous reverie while Travel makes us experience NY, NY twice over through Uptown & Downtown. So enjoy our issue, see the films, read the books and along the way hopefully our stories and profiles will inspire you. See you in 2018… Happy New Year!
