#Hotlist March 2013 1

All that’s buzzing this month!

Cosmopolitan (India) - - LIFESTYLIST -

With The Front Row wrap­ping up a suc­cess­ful sea­son next month, we asked the charis­matic film critic to give us the scoop on the movies that top her list.

SHO­LAY (1975) “My favourite Hindi

film, Sho­lay is the apoth­e­o­sis of the Hindi

film form. It seam­lessly blends

drama, com­edy, ro­mance, ac­tion. I still tear up when Jai dies!”

SUL­LI­VAN’S TRAV­ELS (1941) “It teaches us the value of com­edy. At the end, Sul­li­van, a film di­rec­tor says, ‘there is a lot to be said for mak­ing peo­ple laugh. Did you know that's all some peo­ple have. It isn't much but it's bet­ter than noth­ing in this cock eyed car­a­van.' Ab­so­lutely.”

AN­NIE HALL (1977) “This is one of my favourite love sto­ries. I don’t know many ro­mances that can make you laugh out loud and also, ache so much.”

THE SHIN­ING (1980) “This film dis­turbs me pro­foundly. Stan­ley Kubrick took a pulpy hor­ror novel and cre­ated high art.”

CIN­EMA PAR­ADISO (1988) “It’s a poignant, beau­ti­fully wrought love let­ter to the movies, to the plea­sures that cin­ema gives us.”
