Old-school Movies To Watch For Family Movie Night

Movies opening Friday, Sept. 27

Tapping the screen will record a single second, or you can long press to record all ten seconds. If you don’t like what’s been recorded, you can cancel the video by tapping the “X” at the top right. By default, Snap Movie uses the device’s back camera, but you can hit the camera flip icon on the upper left to switch to the front camera. If your video is less than 10 seconds, hit the “Next” button to move to the next step. Full length clips will automatically complete and move on. Music and Preview You’ll be taken to the BGM menu where you can choose to use the original audio, or add a background track. You will first need to download the song by tapping the corresponding button on the right. This should be fairly quick, though it does depend on the speed of your data connection. Take a listen to the audio and once you’ve found a track you like, hit “Next”. You’ll be able to preview the full creation of your Snap Movie along with the music. If want to go back and change something, hit the back button in the upper left. If you like what’s been produced, hit “Send”. The video will be sent to your friend, and will also be saved onto your device. This means you can send your Snap Movie to others by using the normal “Choose a Video” option.

Back to the Future - Family movies

Many of them were set in villages, while others trawled the slums and chawls of Mumbai much before Bollywood discovered these spaces. The films made for heavy watching, and often ended on an open and ambiguous note that, depending on the film-makers skills, represented a slap in the face or a running out of ideas. Cinemas of India represents a small segment of the Indian art cinema that was produced from the late 1960s onwards, but its a fabulous start. Film nostalgia isnt only for popular cinema, and feelings towards the art cinema on which us Indians grew up can be as mixed as our regard for the legacy of Sridevi or Rajinikanth. There are duds and gems, embarrassments and riches. Experimental films by Mani Kaul and Kumar Shahani sit on the same shelf as rural realist dramas. One of the greatest gifts of the label, in fact, is the release of DVDs of Kauls long-forgotten early achievements Uski Roti and Duvidha. Awtar Krishna Kauls 27 Down (1974). Photo courtesy: National Film Development Corporation 27 Down by Awtar Krishna Kaul, who died in an accident soon after its completion, is one of the great Mumbai films, featuring unforgettable journeys on the local train, a lustrous Raakhee, and some of the best black and white vistas of the city, including an unforgettable sequence of commuters spilling out of a train as it pulls into a station. Celebrated cinematographer Apurba Kishore Bir, who shot 27 Down and several parallel films, also directed a handful of titles, including Aranyaka, a Rules of the Game-influenced tale set in a tribal part of Orissa and featuring an ex-royal, his guests and a hunt that goes badly wrong. Aranyaka isnt wholly successful in its depiction of the tensions between the ruling class and indigenous people, but its a curio nonetheless, on a par with Aribam Syam Sharmas Manipuri film Sanabi. The story of a stolen horse and the role it plays in a budding romance is less interesting than the rural Manipuri landscape, lovingly photographed by renowned Malayli cinematographer Sunny Joseph. Fareeda Mehtas Kali Salwaar Cinemas of India has given a new lease of life to several neglected films, among them, Fareedas Kali Salwaar, featuring beautiful camerawork by Avijit Mukul Kishore, compelling performances by Sadiya Siddiqui, Irrfan Khan, Surekha Sikri and Sheeba Chaddha, and evocative Central Mumbai locations. Kali Salwaar is set in the Mumbai imaginarium constructed through the stories of Saadat Hasan Manto (the writer also wanders through the narrative)a world of elegant prostitutes, pathetic dreamers, flim-flam artists and flamboyant neighbourhood criminals.
