commercial entertainers either in Hindi or her Bengali The daughter of celebrated filmmaker Aparna Sen Konkona told IANS: “I did not really grow up watching commercial Hindi films or Bengali films My mother did not allow me to watch it So I have always watched different kind of films and my sensibilities lie with I think more middle-of-the-road sensible kind of cinema anyway “So that I think reflects in my films as well” Konkana who has impressed cinema-goers with her low-on-glamour and high-on-performance roles in movies like “15 Park Avenue” “Mr and Mrs Iyer” “Omkara” “Page 3” and “Wake Up Sid” will next be seen in “Gour Hari Dastaan – The Freedom File” Share This Article Related Article A biopic on freedom fighter Gour Hari Das the movie will see Konkona portraying the role of Lakshmi Das the wife of Gour Hari Das “It was quite a challenge” she said and added: “Lakshmi Das is double my age she has been a loyal supporting wife especially when people were not believing Das-ji ridiculed him thinking that he was a fraud…the building society people the government of course was not supportive of him…she has always been a loyal supporter” Getting into the character was not so difficult for Konkana because “the script was very well written” and since the team had met the real life people on whom the film is based “We interacted with them they even came to the sets so one got a feel of the characters It was like the script was coming alive…it was also very well-researched” Also shooting with a cast of National Film Award winners was “great” for her “It is a great cast so shooting was fun Vinay (Pathak) Ranvir (Shorey) Saurabh Shukla Tannishtha (Chatterjee)…one knew the people since we have worked together before and known each other socially otherwise so it was fun” “Gour Hari Dastaan – The Freedom File” was screened at London Indian Film festival New York Indian Film Festival Venice Film Festival and has already won an award at Extravagant India Film Festival in Paris How important and effective is the ‘international return stamp’ for a film’s publicity “To a certain extent the international return stamp does work After all these films are niche films… after all neither do they have the budget to do the marketing in such way that it reaches everybody and have very little publicity “Many people don’t know about it they don’t have that many shows so film festivals do help in terms of publicity That way people across the world get to watch such films It is great for such films which don’t have much funds to begin with” Konkona said For

contribution to Indian cricket for the past decade and half goes beyond that As the Very Very Special man walks into the sunset of his illustrious careerit wont be a wonderful after life for Indias next batch of Test aspirants as the bar that has been set by the Hyderabadi stylist is pretty high The 37-year-old Laxman was never dubbed a genius like Sachin Tendulkar neither did he possess the swagger of Virender Sehwag or the doggedness of a certain Rahul Dravidyet he will forever remain one of the all-time greats of Indian cricket Laxman was the touch artistone can never forget The suppleness of his wrists as he played a delivery well outside his off-stump through the mid-wicket is something that a generation of cricket lovers have learned to adore Laxmanwho announced his retirement from international cricket with immediate efffectplayed 134 Testsamassing 8781 runs at an average of 4597 He scored 17 centuries and 56 half centuriesmany of which have gone a long way in helping India save or win a Test match He played in 86 ODIs for an aggregate of 2338 and average of 3076 in the shorter format which was not his forte His 281 against Australia at the Eden Gardens is a stuff of legends and that majestic knock has now become a part of cricketing folklore Those who were present at the Eden Gardens on March 142001would vouch that one may not have ever seen someone repeatedly play the inside-out shot through the covers off Shane Warne with such ferocity and yet make it look so simple The Australian teams over the years have had the highest regard for Tendulkar but it has never been any less for Laxmanwho has played some amazing knocks against them over the years Dravid bond Laxmans 148 at Adelaide in 2003-04 series came at a crucial juncture and his partnership with Rahul Dravid kept Indias challenge alive and the team finally went one up in that Test series A teamman to the corethe smiling Hyderabadi was ever ready to stand up and be counted whenever the Indian team needed him He was never a natural opener but yet he performed the duties against a lot of Test teams with admirable sincerity Some of his best knocks came at No 3 yet his batting order always remained flexible something he never complained about He scored 17 centuries in 134 Tests but what figures dont point out is that he also scored 56 half centuriesmany of which were significant in the final outcome Two such innings came late in his career where he gave a lesson or two on how to bat with tail-enders The first one was an unbeaten 73 against Australia at Mohali in October2010 Chasing 216India were 124 for eight as Laxman added 81 runs with Ishant Sharma and then batted for good 20 nerve-wracking minutes with No 11 Pragyan Ojha to win the Test match for India He was in acute pain fighting back spasms He was getting medical attention from the physio after each and every over but he continued like a man possessed The most endearing sight of that match was an agitated Laxman shouting at his statemate Ojha as the latter nearly got run-out trying to steal a non-existent single It was something that was not associated with a man like Laxman who was always grace personified even when off the field as much as he was on it The second one was an innings of 96 at Durbancouple of months after the Mohali knock India were 0-1 down in the Test series and it was a knock played in the third innings of a match Again it was 148 for sevenwhen Zaheer Khan joined Laxman as he took India to a score from where it was difficult Big miss the Cup Running between the wickets was never Laxmans forte and his fielding was always under scanner even though he was as safe at slips as someone like Dravid Yetit was sheer joy to watch him as he had the talent to do the unthinkable at times That is what separated Laxman from a bunch of ordinary international cricketers The only glitch that will remain in his career will be the failure of not being able to make it to the 1999 and 2003 World Cup squads Blame the Indian cricket set-up which saw a player of his calibre represent the country in only 86 ODIs His best chance to make it to the World Cup probably was in 2003 but Dinesh Mongia was given a nod ahead of Laxman Till datethe erstwhile skipper Sourav Ganguly has failed to substantiate why VVS didnt make it to the squad ProbablyLaxman was the finest

collecting 13 out of 15 points in their opening five fixtures Everton have taken just six from their last 7 matches Top News Former Everton striker Tony Cottee has urged the fans to be patient with manager Ronald Koeman as the team continue to suffer a dip in form The Dutch manager returns to Southampton’s St Mary’s Stadium for the first time on Sunday as Everton look for their first victory on the road since the 3-0 win over Sunderland back in September “It was always going to take a while for Koeman to get his ideas across They’ve been used to playing the (Roberto) Martinez way and a lot of the players have been at the club for a long time” Cottee told Reuters “I think he will get it right at Everton The fans have got to be patient and allow him to develop the club bring in some new exciting players and then I think we’ll see them pushing on “As long as the Evertonians see some sort of progress then they’ll be patient After the start they made to the season everyone got a bit excited But the main word here is patience” After collecting 13 out of 15 points in their opening five Premier League fixtures this season Everton have taken just six from their last seven matches Cottee who moved to Goodison Park in 1988 from his boyhood club West Ham United believes the sluggish 1-1 home draw with bottom side Swansea last weekend had left the Merseyside club with an uphill struggle “Everton have had a great start to the season and their form has tailed off a little bit since They need to start picking up results” he said “When you don’t win your home games it puts a big pressure on the away matches” added the 51-year-old television pundit “I’d like to think there were lessons learned in the heavy defeat to Chelsea “It’s a big game for Everton and they need to go down to Southampton and perform They should be pushing for a Europa League position come the end of the season” UNCERTAIN FUTURE Striker Romelu Lukaku whose future at Goodison has been the subject of media speculation has scored seven league goals this season and Cottee thinks seventh-placed Everton rely too heavily on the Belgian forward “I’ve always felt that Lukaku has been isolated over the last couple of years he has been at Everton and there has been a bit too much responsibility on his shoulders” Cottee said “I think Ross Barkley is the key player at the weekend If they can get him in-form and supplying service for Lukaku then I think Everton will pick up” Koeman guided Southampton to sixth place last season – their highest finish and points total in Premier League history – but received criticism for his decision to join Everton “It’s going to be interesting for Koeman isn’t it He did a good job at Southampton and I am sure they were disappointed that he moved on as they would have been with (Mauricio) Pochettino before that” said Cottee who scored 99 goals in 205 appearances for Everton “Southampton is a fantastic club They seem to get rid of their best players and get rid of their best managers and they still seem to do so well I think Koeman will get a little bit of stick That’s just the way it is in football” For all the latest Sports News download Indian
