... Reflections On Lagaan Suyash Poddar The movie Lagaan represents a unique Bollywood style amalgamation of India Colonial past with the sport of cricket to deliver a thoroughly entertaining and insightful piece of cinema. The film depicts the oppression faced by peasants in “Champaner” by its colonial rulers who demanded a higher tax rate from the peasants despite the economic hardships they were facing. To oppose this harsh tax the peasants are challenged to a “winner take all” cricket match against the British, setting up a true underdog sports story where the inexperienced Indian peasants rise up to face the mighty British empire on a cricket pitch. Through the lens of a glorified cricket match between Indian peasants and the British Officer's Lagaan broaches a wide variety of issues that plagues colonial India. Issues like the economic dependence of peasants on “baarish” to ensure a good crop have been prominently displayed in the film. The film also carefully brings up the subject of segregation based on caste, when the villagers consider the character “kachra” (which means garbage) as “achoot” (untouchable) because it belongs to a lowly caste. The film attempts to denounce this notion of segregation by providing “kachra” the support of the protagonist who is able to rise beyond the caste system and include “kachra” to become an integral part of the team. Although the premise of the film is quite improbable, it does well to show the true oppressive and ......

... [pic] Lagaan: A PathGoal Theory Case Study of the Film Each leadership case study is meant to simulate real life. In real leadership situations, we have to use all the known facts to make the best decision possible. There is never a guarantee of the outcome. Leaders have to become comfortable with uncertainty. The value of this kind of case study discussion is in the discussion and interaction it generates. If the case study leads you to a discussion of your own organization when people see similarities with the case study, then learning is taking place. Such open discussion helps supervisors to better understand leadership best practices and helps them to all align their own styles with the culture and values ​​of their organization.

Indian History Through Film

... 10/17/13 Lagaan vs The Rising: Mangle Pandey The two films Lagaan and The Rising: Mangle Pandey are stories that tell of the Indian people banding together to defeat the British in rejection of their rule over the sub-continent. Movies set in the colonial periods of India are well like by the Indian people as it portrays a significant role in their history and helped form India to what it is today. For example, the British built cities and infrastructure like railways that the Indian people still use today. But the British also inadvertently banded the many different peoples of India together against them, which is what these two movies are all about. Lagaan and The Rising express the unity of Hindus and Muslims, and the breaking of the caste system to form friendship. These two films also depict the British in almost identical ways; all but one of the Britsh characters is scornful about and neglects the Indian people and their customs. It may be coincidence that the same actor, Aamir Khan, plays the main character in both movies that unites the different groups together and share a bond with the “good” British character. However, the extent of the historical accuracy of the portrayal of colonial Britain is up to debate. Of the two films, The Rising presents a more accurate presentation of colonial Britain than Lagaan in its portrayal of the British, Indian society, and the reason why the peoples of India converging to combat British rule. The hit film, Lagaan, is not ......

His work actually incorporates sub-texts, goes beyond the notional concept of Bollywood entertainment and stays with you long after you've seen them Yet if there's a filmmaker who has a residue of social responsibility and seeks to mirror today's conditions, it's this actor- turned-director. Thanks very much to the superior-quality films from the six he has directed so far, he inspires that key forgiveness factor from the viewer - the way you’d ignore a raving beauty’s bad hair day.

... in 2009, the trio have repeated the same success with "PK", a film that boasts of a unique concept. It uses an alien to talk about the ills of society and not only makes viewers laugh and cry but also makes them think. "The moment I start choosing films that can do Rs.100 crore business, then my choice becomes very limited and I can only do films like 'Avengers' or 'Spider-Man', which go on to achieve those numbers. This really kills creativity to an alarming extent, so I have always selected my films based on what I feel towards them, "he said. "Like 'Taare Zameen Par' went on to do good business and I didn't know it would. I just did it because I liked the script. Also, I selected 'Rang De Basanti' because I loved the script. I did ' Lagaan 'when the entire film industry thought it was a disaster. "So these films I have not picked looking at the box office collection, I picked them because I loved them. Later when they became box office hits, it was a different question. I do films if I like the script and not according to its business.

Reflection essay

... My Final Reflection There are numerous aspects of this course that have contributed to my learning throughout this semester. This course has provided me with new skills that enhance both my writing ability as well as the ability to analyze a film. The two goals that stood out most were to learn to analyze and critically evaluate ideas, arguments, and points of view and to continue to develop skills in expressing oneself in writing. I benefited from these goals because I now have a deeper knowledge of different film genres and can correctly revise my essays. In order to display the progress made in my writing abilities throughout this semester I chose to revise and analyze Take Me Out to the Ball Game. This class introduced a new aspect of writing for me because I have never been required to analyze the scenes and themes of a film prior to taking this class. The film, Take Me Out to the Ball Game, is a musical comedy about a baseball team. My initial instinct was to classify this film as a simple sports film. However, after analyzing the film it was clear that there was more to it than just a sports perspective. The film had several other themes besides sports, two of which included patriotism and acceptance. It was very interesting to analyze the different relationships among the characters in this sport musical. Despite the different personalities of each character, I found it fascinating that they were so intertwined through their love for baseball and their country .......

Britannia Project 555

... An Overview of the company: Once upon a time, in 1892 to be precise, a biscuit company was started in a nondescript house in Calcutta (now Kolkata) with an initial investment of Rs. 295. The company we all know as Britannia today. The beginnings might have been humble-the dreams were anything but by 1910, with the advent of electricity, Britannia mechanized its operations, and in 1921, it became the first company east of the Suez Canal to use imported gas ovens. Britannia's business was flourishing. But, more importantly, Britannia was acquiring a reputation for quality and value. As a result, during the tragic World War II, the Government reposed its trust in Britannia by contracting it to supply large quantities of "service biscuits" to the armed forces. As time moved on, the biscuit market continued to grow ... and Britannia grew along with it. In 1975, the Britannia Biscuit Company took over the distribution of biscuits from Parry's who till now distributed Britannia biscuits in India. In the subsequent public issue of 1978, Indian shareholding crossed 60%, firmly establishing the Indianness of the firm. The following year, Britannia Biscuit Company was re-christened Britannia Industries Limited (BIL). Four years later in 1983, it crossed the Rs. 100 crores revenue mark. On the operations front, the company was making equally dynamic strides. In 1992, it celebrated its Platinum Jubilee. In 1997, the company unveiled its new corporate identity - "Eat Healthy, Think ...

... Rahman's film career began in 1992 when he started Panchathan Record Inn, a recording and mixing studio in his backyard. It would become the most-advanced recording studio in India, [19] and arguably one of Asia's most sophisticated and high-tech studios. [20] He initially composed scores for documentaries and jingles for advertisements and Indian television channels. In 1987 Rahman, then still known as Dileep, composed jingles for a line of watches introduced by Allwyn. In 1992, he was approached by director Mani Ratnam to compose the score and soundtrack for his Tamil film, Roja.

The following year, Rahman received the Rajat Kamal (Silver Lotus) award for best music director at the National Film Awards for Roja. The films' score was critically and commercially successful in its original and dubbed versions, led by the innovative theme "Chinna Chinna Aasai".

... Singing in the rain…. By Vimla Patil September 2009 Though rain has inspired joyous dances and music all over the world, India has a unique heritage of Monsoon Ragas which were composed and sung by legendary masters like Mia Tansen to initiate welcome showers to India's parched forests and fields so that the land would be blessed with plenty… The music they composed has inspired painters, dancers and writers for generations …… 'A lifetime of showers moistens the soul', says an ancient proverb. And the shimmering, crystal-clear nuances of these beautiful words apply more to India’s colorful Monsoon culture than to any other art movement in the world. Rain and the magical season of Monsoon have always been the throbbing heart of Indian life and culture. Whether we are talking about music - classical, folk as well as devotional - dance, painting or sculpture, rains and their incessant music are a recurring theme in India’s many-splendid art treasure, and not without excellent reason! It is well-known that India’s entire economy depends upon the timely coming of the monsoons. Vignettes of farmers looking longingly at the skies for the first signs of fleecy black water-bearing clouds are familiar in our daily life. Folk songs welcoming the first thunder showers and streaks of lightning are sung in every village even today. The diverse dialects of India’s far flung villages are replete with songs welcoming the rains and their message of bounty. Indeed, the ancient ...
