Pagla ghoda
Sat Jul 30, 8:00 PM
Darpan theatre
Written by Badal Sarkar in the 1960s and adapted and directed by Ali Ahmed, Pagla Ghoda revolves around four men from different walks of life as they sit through the night at a crematorium, playing cards, drinking and sharing their own stories while an unknown girl burns on the pyre.

As they sit at the crematorium ground, discussing the mystery of the young woman’s death, secrets from their past gradually come to the forefront and their ramblings soon turn poignant as they reveal their individual stories of loss and pain.

Pagla Ghoda holds a mirror for us to reflect on and shows how patriarchy affects both genders in different ways. And how cumulatively, it damages society as well.

As the play unfolds, it portrays, ‘Pagla Ghoda’ or ‘Mad Horse’ as a metaphor for the rush of blood in our veins, of lost chances and vague morals, of individual cowardice and collective will to uphold the dichotomies and sustain the injustices meted towards women. Pagla Ghoda raises a few questions that will haunt you even after the play is over

Reelistic Movie Club
Sun Jul 31, 3:00 PM
Kakumanu Monalisa
Art and literature can be seen as extensions of the human mind. Very often they can reveal what lies within, sometimes visibly, and, sometimes, not quite so visibly. The movie club is (we hope) a fun way of looking deeper into the emotions, perceptions and thoughts that weave human relationships together or tear them apart. A movie may be treated as a true story or, alternatively, can be used as a tool to try and figure out what went on in the directors head when the movie was made. Either way, it’s a different way of understanding human behavior and relationships. In the end, by looking deeper into another’s story, we hope, perchance, to understand ourselves better.

Celebrating Roman Polanski
Wed Aug 3, 7:00 PM
Lamakaan
The Wednesdays screenings at Lamakaan in August celebrate Roman Polanski's films.

Raymond Roman Thierry Polánski 18 August 1933) is a Polish and French film director, producer, screenwriter, and actor. During his career Polanski has received five Oscar nominations, winning the Best Director in 2003 for The Pianist. He has also received two Golden Globe Awards, two BAFTAs, a Palme d'Or of the 2002 Cannes Film Festival in France, as well as multiple Césars.


His Polish–Jewish parents moved the family from his birthplace in Paris back to Kraków in 1937. Two years later, the invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany started World War II, and the family found themselves trapped in the Kraków Ghetto. After his mother and father were taken in raids, Polanski spent his formative years in foster homes, surviving the Holocaust by adopting a false identity and concealing his Jewish heritage. Polanski's first feature-length film, Knife in the Water (1962), was made in Poland and was nominated for the United States Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. After living in France for a few years, he moved to the United Kingdom, where he directed his first three feature-length films: Repulsion (1965), Cul-de-sac (1966), and The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967). In 1968, he moved to the United States and cemented his status in the film industry by directing the horror film Rosemary's Baby (1968).


Polanski's life turned in 1969 when his pregnant wife, actress Sharon Tate, and four friends were murdered by members of the Manson Family. He made Macbeth (1971) in England and Chinatown (1974) back in Hollywood. In 1977, Polanski was arrested and charged with drugging and raping a 13-year-old girl. As a result of a plea bargain, he pleaded guilty to the lesser offence of unlawful sex with a minor. In 1978, upon learning that the judge planned to reject his plea deal and impose a prison term instead of probation, he fled to Paris. As a result, Polanski is a fugitive from the U.S. criminal justice system. In addition to his conviction, multiple other women have accused Polanski of sexually assaulting them as children. After fleeing to Europe, Polanski continued directing. His other critically acclaimed films include Tess (1979), The Ghost Writer (2010), Venus in Fur (2013), and An Officer and a Spy (2019).


Film Title: Rosemary's Baby | 1968 | 136 Minutes


Rosemary's Baby is a 1968 American psychological horror film written and directed by Roman Polanski, and starring Mia Farrow, John Cassavetes, Ruth Gordon, Sidney Blackmer, Maurice Evans, Ralph Bellamy, Patsy Kelly, Angela Dorian, Clay Tanner, and, in his feature film debut, Charles Grodin. The film follows a young, pregnant wife in Manhattan who comes to suspect that her elderly neighbors are members of a Satanic cult, and are grooming her in order to use her baby for their rituals. It is based on the 1967 novel of the same name by Ira Levin.

Though set in New York City, the majority of principal photography of Rosemary's Baby took place in Los Angeles throughout late 1967. It was released in June 1968 by Paramount Pictures, and was a box-office success, grossing over $30 million in the United States. The film received numerous accolades, including multiple Golden Globe Award nominations and two Academy Award nominations. Ruth Gordon won both the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress as well as the Golden Globe in the same category.

Rosemary's Baby deals with themes related to paranoia, women's liberation, Christianity (Catholicism), and the occult. The film earned almost universal acclaim from film critics and won numerous nominations and awards. It is widely regarded as one of the greatest horror movies of all time. In 2014, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, being deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."

Film Title: Macbeth| 1971 | 140 Minutes


Macbeth (or The Tragedy of Macbeth) is a 1971 historical drama film directed by Roman Polanski and co-written by Polanski and Kenneth Tynan. A film adaptation of William Shakespeare's tragedy of the same name, it tells the story of the Highland lord who becomes King of Scotland through treachery and murder. The film stars Jon Finch as the title character and Francesca Annis as Lady Macbeth, noted for their relative youth as actors. Themes of historic recurrence, greater pessimism and internal ugliness in physically beautiful characters are added to Shakespeare's story of moral decline, which is presented in a more realistic style.

Polanski opted to create an adaptation of Macbeth as a means of coping with the highly publicized Manson Family murder of his wife, Sharon Tate. Finding difficulty obtaining sponsorship from major studios, the production was funded by Playboy Enterprises. Filming was troubled by poor weather around the British Isles. Macbeth was screened out of competition at the 1972 Cannes Film Festival, and was a commercial failure in the United States. The film was controversial for its depictions of graphic violence and nudity, but has received generally positive reviews since its release, and was named Best Film by the National Board of Review.

Open Discussion: Azadi?
Sun Aug 14, 4:00 PM
In Defense of Reason
75 years have elapsed since India gained independence from colonial rule. The government of India has asked the citizens to celebrate the so called 'Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav'. But the citizens too have the right to question nature of this 'Azadi' and who is getting benefitted from this Azadi and at whose cost? For vast toiling masses of this country what does this Azadi mean? Or do they still need to fight for their real Azadi?

These are the few questions we are raising on the occassion of the eve of the 75th independence day.We invite people to take part in this open discussion.

The 8th Hasan Memorial Lecture 2022 on 'FREE PRESS & DEMOCRACY' by Seema Chishti

About the topic:

India’s rank in the World Press Freedom Index has collapsed to 150 out of 180 countries. That makes our Democracy very weak. How and Why? Seema Chishti will join the dots.

About the speaker: Seema Chishti

Seema Chishti is a well-known Indian journalist, writer, editor, content creator, and entrepreneur. Seema worked as a journalist and editor for a number of reputed news organizations, including the BBC, The Indian Express, The Caravan, The Hindu, and others.


About Hasan Memorial Lecture:

The Hasan Memorial Lecture was instituted in 2014 and is held each year at Lamakaan on August 15 with an eye to the emergent political and economic crisis in India/South Asia or the world. It is our single most crucial programming effort each year and draws a very significant audience. The previous editions of the lectures were delivered by TM Krishna, Prof. Jayati Ghosh, Prof.Gail Omvedt, Bharat Patankar, and Prof.Kodandaram, Siddharth Varadarajan, et al.

Mr. Moyed Hasan in whose memory the annual lecture is named, was a scientist, a photographer, an environmentalist, and a person with a deep concern for the lives of ordinary people. His house, which he named Lamakaan (as in the Sufi literary tradition to mean 'an abode for those who travel without any worldly possessions') " has now become an important part of Hyderabad’s culture and political life. Mr. Hasan left behind an image of what an engaged life is. From science to art, and environment to international affairs he encompassed a vision of how we must live meaningfully.

Film Title: Chinatown | 1974 | 131 Minutes


Chinatown is a 1974 American neo-noir mystery drama film directed by Roman Polanski from a screenplay by Robert Towne, starring Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway. The film was inspired by the California water wars, a series of disputes over southern California water at the beginning of the 20th century, by which Los Angeles interests secured water rights in the Owens Valley. The Robert Evans production, released by Paramount Pictures, was the director's last film in the United States and features many elements of film noir, particularly a multi-layered story that is part mystery and part psychological drama.

In 1991, the film was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the United States National Film Registry as being "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant" and it is frequently listed as one of the greatest films of all time. At the 47th Academy Awards, it was nominated for 11 Oscars, with Towne winning Best Original Screenplay. The Golden Globe Awards honored it for Best Drama, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Screenplay. The American Film Institute placed it second among its top ten mystery films in 2008.

A sequel, The Two Jakes, was released in 1990, again starring Nicholson, who also directed, with Robert Towne returning to write the screenplay. The film failed to match the acclaim of its predecessor.

Pagla ghoda
Sat Jul 30, 8:00 PM
Darpan theatre
Written by Badal Sarkar in the 1960s and adapted and directed by Ali Ahmed, Pagla Ghoda revolves around four men from different walks of life as they sit through the night at a crematorium, playing cards, drinking and sharing their own stories while an unknown girl burns on the pyre.

As they sit at the crematorium ground, discussing the mystery of the young woman’s death, secrets from their past gradually come to the forefront and their ramblings soon turn poignant as they reveal their individual stories of loss and pain.

Pagla Ghoda holds a mirror for us to reflect on and shows how patriarchy affects both genders in different ways. And how cumulatively, it damages society as well.

As the play unfolds, it portrays, ‘Pagla Ghoda’ or ‘Mad Horse’ as a metaphor for the rush of blood in our veins, of lost chances and vague morals, of individual cowardice and collective will to uphold the dichotomies and sustain the injustices meted towards women. Pagla Ghoda raises a few questions that will haunt you even after the play is over

Reelistic Movie Club
Sun Jul 31, 3:00 PM
Kakumanu Monalisa
Art and literature can be seen as extensions of the human mind. Very often they can reveal what lies within, sometimes visibly, and, sometimes, not quite so visibly. The movie club is (we hope) a fun way of looking deeper into the emotions, perceptions and thoughts that weave human relationships together or tear them apart. A movie may be treated as a true story or, alternatively, can be used as a tool to try and figure out what went on in the directors head when the movie was made. Either way, it’s a different way of understanding human behavior and relationships. In the end, by looking deeper into another’s story, we hope, perchance, to understand ourselves better.

Celebrating Roman Polanski
Wed Aug 3, 7:00 PM
Lamakaan
The Wednesdays screenings at Lamakaan in August celebrate Roman Polanski's films.

Raymond Roman Thierry Polánski 18 August 1933) is a Polish and French film director, producer, screenwriter, and actor. During his career Polanski has received five Oscar nominations, winning the Best Director in 2003 for The Pianist. He has also received two Golden Globe Awards, two BAFTAs, a Palme d'Or of the 2002 Cannes Film Festival in France, as well as multiple Césars.


His Polish–Jewish parents moved the family from his birthplace in Paris back to Kraków in 1937. Two years later, the invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany started World War II, and the family found themselves trapped in the Kraków Ghetto. After his mother and father were taken in raids, Polanski spent his formative years in foster homes, surviving the Holocaust by adopting a false identity and concealing his Jewish heritage. Polanski's first feature-length film, Knife in the Water (1962), was made in Poland and was nominated for the United States Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. After living in France for a few years, he moved to the United Kingdom, where he directed his first three feature-length films: Repulsion (1965), Cul-de-sac (1966), and The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967). In 1968, he moved to the United States and cemented his status in the film industry by directing the horror film Rosemary's Baby (1968).


Polanski's life turned in 1969 when his pregnant wife, actress Sharon Tate, and four friends were murdered by members of the Manson Family. He made Macbeth (1971) in England and Chinatown (1974) back in Hollywood. In 1977, Polanski was arrested and charged with drugging and raping a 13-year-old girl. As a result of a plea bargain, he pleaded guilty to the lesser offence of unlawful sex with a minor. In 1978, upon learning that the judge planned to reject his plea deal and impose a prison term instead of probation, he fled to Paris. As a result, Polanski is a fugitive from the U.S. criminal justice system. In addition to his conviction, multiple other women have accused Polanski of sexually assaulting them as children. After fleeing to Europe, Polanski continued directing. His other critically acclaimed films include Tess (1979), The Ghost Writer (2010), Venus in Fur (2013), and An Officer and a Spy (2019).


Film Title: Rosemary's Baby | 1968 | 136 Minutes


Rosemary's Baby is a 1968 American psychological horror film written and directed by Roman Polanski, and starring Mia Farrow, John Cassavetes, Ruth Gordon, Sidney Blackmer, Maurice Evans, Ralph Bellamy, Patsy Kelly, Angela Dorian, Clay Tanner, and, in his feature film debut, Charles Grodin. The film follows a young, pregnant wife in Manhattan who comes to suspect that her elderly neighbors are members of a Satanic cult, and are grooming her in order to use her baby for their rituals. It is based on the 1967 novel of the same name by Ira Levin.

Though set in New York City, the majority of principal photography of Rosemary's Baby took place in Los Angeles throughout late 1967. It was released in June 1968 by Paramount Pictures, and was a box-office success, grossing over $30 million in the United States. The film received numerous accolades, including multiple Golden Globe Award nominations and two Academy Award nominations. Ruth Gordon won both the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress as well as the Golden Globe in the same category.

Rosemary's Baby deals with themes related to paranoia, women's liberation, Christianity (Catholicism), and the occult. The film earned almost universal acclaim from film critics and won numerous nominations and awards. It is widely regarded as one of the greatest horror movies of all time. In 2014, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, being deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."

Four different narrators (bandit, woman, the Samurai and a woodcutter) narrate the four different versions of the incident. The film does not explicitly bring out which version was closer to the reality and leaves it to audience to decide. During the discussion following the screening we will discuss about it as also various aspects of the craft of the movie.

Film Title: Macbeth| 1971 | 140 Minutes


Macbeth (or The Tragedy of Macbeth) is a 1971 historical drama film directed by Roman Polanski and co-written by Polanski and Kenneth Tynan. A film adaptation of William Shakespeare's tragedy of the same name, it tells the story of the Highland lord who becomes King of Scotland through treachery and murder. The film stars Jon Finch as the title character and Francesca Annis as Lady Macbeth, noted for their relative youth as actors. Themes of historic recurrence, greater pessimism and internal ugliness in physically beautiful characters are added to Shakespeare's story of moral decline, which is presented in a more realistic style.

Polanski opted to create an adaptation of Macbeth as a means of coping with the highly publicized Manson Family murder of his wife, Sharon Tate. Finding difficulty obtaining sponsorship from major studios, the production was funded by Playboy Enterprises. Filming was troubled by poor weather around the British Isles. Macbeth was screened out of competition at the 1972 Cannes Film Festival, and was a commercial failure in the United States. The film was controversial for its depictions of graphic violence and nudity, but has received generally positive reviews since its release, and was named Best Film by the National Board of Review.

Open Discussion: Azadi?
Sun Aug 14, 4:00 PM
In Defense of Reason
75 years have elapsed since India gained independence from colonial rule. The government of India has asked the citizens to celebrate the so called 'Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav'. But the citizens too have the right to question nature of this 'Azadi' and who is getting benefitted from this Azadi and at whose cost? For vast toiling masses of this country what does this Azadi mean? Or do they still need to fight for their real Azadi?

These are the few questions we are raising on the occassion of the eve of the 75th independence day.We invite people to take part in this open discussion.

The 8th Hasan Memorial Lecture 2022 on 'FREE PRESS & DEMOCRACY' by Seema Chishti

About the topic:

India’s rank in the World Press Freedom Index has collapsed to 150 out of 180 countries. That makes our Democracy very weak. How and Why? Seema Chishti will join the dots.

About the speaker: Seema Chishti

Seema Chishti is a well-known Indian journalist, writer, editor, content creator, and entrepreneur. Seema worked as a journalist and editor for a number of reputed news organizations, including the BBC, The Indian Express, The Caravan, The Hindu, and others.


About Hasan Memorial Lecture:

The Hasan Memorial Lecture was instituted in 2014 and is held each year at Lamakaan on August 15 with an eye to the emergent political and economic crisis in India/South Asia or the world. It is our single most crucial programming effort each year and draws a very significant audience. The previous editions of the lectures were delivered by TM Krishna, Prof. Jayati Ghosh, Prof.Gail Omvedt, Bharat Patankar, and Prof.Kodandaram, Siddharth Varadarajan, et al.

Mr. Moyed Hasan in whose memory the annual lecture is named, was a scientist, a photographer, an environmentalist, and a person with a deep concern for the lives of ordinary people. His house, which he named Lamakaan (as in the Sufi literary tradition to mean 'an abode for those who travel without any worldly possessions') " has now become an important part of Hyderabad’s culture and political life. Mr. Hasan left behind an image of what an engaged life is. From science to art, and environment to international affairs he encompassed a vision of how we must live meaningfully.

Film Title: Chinatown | 1974 | 131 Minutes


Chinatown is a 1974 American neo-noir mystery drama film directed by Roman Polanski from a screenplay by Robert Towne, starring Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway. The film was inspired by the California water wars, a series of disputes over southern California water at the beginning of the 20th century, by which Los Angeles interests secured water rights in the Owens Valley. The Robert Evans production, released by Paramount Pictures, was the director's last film in the United States and features many elements of film noir, particularly a multi-layered story that is part mystery and part psychological drama.

In 1991, the film was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the United States National Film Registry as being "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant" and it is frequently listed as one of the greatest films of all time. At the 47th Academy Awards, it was nominated for 11 Oscars, with Towne winning Best Original Screenplay. The Golden Globe Awards honored it for Best Drama, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Screenplay. The American Film Institute placed it second among its top ten mystery films in 2008.

A sequel, The Two Jakes, was released in 1990, again starring Nicholson, who also directed, with Robert Towne returning to write the screenplay. The film failed to match the acclaim of its predecessor.
