Obamas response on Monday to Fridays Standard & Poors downgrade and to the 22 Navy Seal commandos and eight other soldiers killed by a Taliban rocket-propelled grenade in Afghanistan was once more too littletoo late It was just like his belatedineffectual response on the BP oil spill and his reaction to the would-be Christmas Day bomber; it took him three days on vacation in Hawaii to speak about the terrorist incident when the country was scared about national securityand then he spent the next week callously shuttling from the podium to the golf course His inability to grab a microphone and spontaneously assuage Americans fears is strange If the American servicemen had died on a Mondayhe wouldnt have waited until Wednesday to talk about it He doesnt like the bully pulpitjust the

pep talkin what had to be the most inept oratorical segue of his presidency He long ago should have gone out into the country to talk to Americans in person and come up with a concrete plan that people could print out from the White House website and study Hasnt he learned how dangerous it is to delegate to Congress His withholding and reactive nature has made him seem strangely irrelevant in Washingtontrapped by his own temperament He doesnt leadand he doesnt understand why we dont feel led Speaking from the State Dining Room of the White Househe advised America it was still a triple-A

was still ruled by mass entertainers and Saket Chaudhury was yet to direct his first film Akhtar’s seminal film proved to be a major catalyst for Chaudhary who was still figuring out a way to make his kind of films within the conventional contours of Bollywood Encouraged to tell “urban youth-centric stories that emerge from our milieu” Chaudhury created and directed a television show for Star One about the lives of four friends a homage of sorts called Dil Kya Chahta Hai But more importantly Dil Chahta Hai pushed him into film direction — Pyaar Ke Side Effects (PKSE) launched his directorial career successfully in 2006 So it is fitting that for his latest film Shaadi Ke Side Effects (SKSE) Chaudhary has cast Akhtar in the lead role “It is just a series of happy coincidences” says Chaudhury with laugh The film releases today It won’t be wrong to liken his cinema to Akhtar’s — a middle-of-the-road approach between tasteful filmmaking and commercial cinema “Films are like a conversation you have with the audience In India you have to tell stories in a popular narrative style Putting lip-synced song sequences doesn’t come naturally to me but I weave it in” says the 39-year-old writer-director who began his career in showbiz as a writer for Movers and Shakers a popular comic talk show in the late ’90s His first stint in the movies was writing the script of the epic historical drama Asoka (2001) Interested in “making movies on modern ideas and concerns” Chaudhary has centred both his films around the dynamics of a couple’s relationship While PKSE was a refreshingly humorous take on the man-woman relationship that emerged from “commitment phobia of this generation” SKSE its sequel touches upon the next phase in the life of that relationship — marriage followed by children “It is the first time you stop caring about yourself; the child’s needs are all-absorbing You are not at the centre of things anymore and there is a big shift in lifestyle” he says Speaking about modern takes on relationships in movies Chaudhary names filmmakers who have been hugely influential in the genre “I like contemporary comedies such as Woody Allen’s He’s made smart humorous movies on relationships such as Manhattan and Annie Hall In Hindi Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s urban comic dramas are a favourite” he says “They are like great pop songs They need skills and artistry” Not being married wasn’t a problem for Chaudhary; just observing friends and reading books sufficed “A couple who are my friends was convinced that I had taken a particular scene — that appears in the trailers — from their lives whereas I had just imagined it” says the filmmaker who dabbled in advertising before turning to movies While he admits that the gender dynamics in the film is narrated from a male point of view he ends the story in a way that conveys how misplaced a singular viewpoint can be “Both people change over time and you have to constantly adjust with each other” says Chaudhary whose next is a film for Saif Ali Khan’s home production For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Nandini Nair | New Delhi |
