Muramba

Muramba is a Marathi movie available on Netflix. It stars Sachin Khedekar, Mithila Palkar, Amey Wagh and Chinmayi Sumit.

Alok and Indu have been dating for years and are on the verge of getting engaged when they break up. Alok's parents are concerned. The movie is about Alok narrating to his parents the differences between him and Indu and why they broke up over a period of one day.

It is funny and sweet and brushes against some serious issues but does not delve deeper into them.
Loved it. I would highly recommend this flick.

Quick recap of the 44 books read in 2017

Capital by Rana Dasgupta

A wonderful book about Delhi and very unlike the usual ones. It doesn't tell you how awesome the city but tries to figure out why it is so messed up. Many things in the book are applicable to this country as a whole but there are some things very inherent in Delhi. It is a dark book and hard to read at the end of a long work day.
Whether you like the city or hate it, read this book. And the people who are neutral towards the city don't exist so everyone falls in either of these categories.

When I hit you: Or, a portrait of the writer as a young wife by Meena Kandasamy 

I couldn't find the kindle version and read it on the juggernaut app. The book is about the author's short lived marriage filled with domestic violence and rape.
The author is a woman like you and me. She married a guy she chose and was the victim of his abuse for months. She managed to walk out only once she was on the verge of getting killed.
This book should be read by everyone…
