The Beautiful and the Not-so-beautiful

Debjani's Thoughts

Recently, I watched two films, August Rush and Leap Year, and read a book, A Thousand Splendid Suns. While the films were good overall, the book was wonderful.

In A Thousand Splendid Suns, penned by Khaled Hosseini, the narrative seamlessly blends the stories of the two women protagonists, Mariam and Laila, against the backdrop of the Taliban invasion in Afghanistan.

A Thousand Splendid Suns is as much “a story about a woman’s freedom from brutal and systematic oppression as it is about human endurance and courage to move on and start afresh.” It’s a story of hope.

As far as the films are concerned, I liked both of them, although when I checked the Internet, none of the films were appreciated by the critics. Carping is the profession of critics…

Much Hyped

Debjani's Thoughts

16th June 2014

I watched two movies, The American Hustle and Seven Years in Tibet, and decided to pen down my thoughts about it. To begin with, none of the movies left any deep impression on me but both were good.

The first movie that I watched was The American Hustleboasting of a star cast of Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, and Jennifer Lawrence. It’s an entertaining movie about two con men—Irving Rosenfield (Bale) and Sydney Prosser (Adams)—who play it small but are trapped by a FBI official, Richard DiMaso (Cooper), who wants to climb up the corporate ladder by entrapping some big fish (read Congressmen) into a scam.

Reading the Knots by Susan Garzon

Rating – 5/5

Three women in Guatemala, 1954. An archaeological dig. An astonishing discovery that establishes a significant connection between Andes and Mesoamerica, but which also triggers a chain of events that forever changes the lives of these women.

Meg Fuente, the archaeologist’s American wife, hobnobs with a left-leaning political group, but soon realizes this could put her and her family in danger if the current progressive government falls. Patricia Baldt, the stubborn daughter of a wealthy coffee planter (a German immigrant to Guatemala), is determined to excavate at the dig, but she must keep her activities hidden from her savage, right-wing, orthodox father. Finally, there is Noemi, a girl from an impoverished Mayan town, whose family survives on her brother’s salary as a foreman at the dig.

In a country where tension has been brewing between the Spaniards and the indigenous population for years, the situation has turned gloomier due to a looming civil war supported by outside forces. In this hatred-filled atmosphere, the discovery at the dig spells doom for the three women who must show extraordinary fortitude to survive.
