Lyrics and Pics in the same gallery...yes we can do that or we can have seperate lyrics zone with the links of the songs....Lets know the other members comments.

that is also a good idea.. but without opening another thread, we can put all lyrics with the songs links  in pic gallery..everytime we wll edit the same post... thats my idea..


Well we can do that, but we have to wait for other members response.

My own opinion is to have a separate thread, with lyrics, song links, and notations of the song......I am sure some of our members can play any musical we can do that.

How a beauty queen and an abused wife stirred fury at Cannes

Film based on British woman's story of domestic violence and prison is riddled with inaccuracies, says the London group that campaigned for her freedom. Rob Sharp reports from Cannes

Sunday May 21, 2006
The Observer

After The Da Vinci Code's nosedive and Ken Loach's diatribe against Britain's presence in Iraq, few would have predicted that the next controversy to hit the Cannes Film Festival would have its origins in the west London suburb of Southall. But a group of London campaigners have poured scorn on Provoked, an all-star film that premiered in Cannes last week, which they claim is riddled with 'factual and legal inaccuracies'. The Southall Black Sisters, a women's rights group, has slammed director Jag Mundhra's take on the story of Kiranjit Ahluwalia, jailed in 1989 for killing her husband after 10 years of domestic abuse. She is portrayed on the screen by Bollywood superstar Aishwarya Rai, alongside a stellar UK cast which includes Lost star Naveen Andrews, Miranda Richardson and Robbie Coltrane. Pragna Patel, who campaigned for Ahluwalia's release from Bullwood Hall prison in Essex, told The Observer: 'The film-makers have taken a lot of artistic licence. I cringe a bit because I was so closely involved. Sometimes I think people should rise to the challenge of reflecting real life better. My view is that the reality is far more interesting.' Rahila Gupta, who collaborated with Ahluwalia on her story in the book Circle of Light and is also associated with the group, added: 'It's a shame that film is an artistic form in which you have to make a fair amount of compromises to make it happen.' The group claim Ahluwalia is depicted as a middle-class housewife, but in reality was a factory worker, and that the film 'Americanised' legal terminology. Gupta criticised the film's characterisation as 'one-dimensional', and the portrayal of Ahluwalia's husband, Deepak, as an alcoholic. Scenes are told through flashbacks set to a score by AR Rahman, best known in the UK as composer of the musical Bombay Dreams. In addition, the character in the film who campaigns for Ahluwalia's freedom, played by Indian actress Nandita Das, is based on the real life actions of Gupta and Patel. The separate stories of the two campaigners have been rolled into one character. Ahluwalia experienced a sexually abusive and violent marriage over a number of years while living in deprived circumstances in Crawley, Sussex. After a series of incidents which culminated in her being threatened with a hot iron, and after turning to alcohol herself, she was imprisoned after she poured petrol over her husband and set him on fire. Ahluwalia was released after a campaign by Southall Black Sisters led to a new trial in 1991, when her charge was changed to manslaughter and her sentence was reduced to the amount of time she had already served. In the process, the 'law of provocation' was softened, to take account of the abuse she suffered prior to her attack on her husband, setting a legal precedent for future cases. Speaking in Cannes, Mundhra admitted he had made changes, such as merging Gupta and Patel into a single character, but rejected the criticism of his style of film-making. He said: 'I feel that a story must have a protagonist that one roots for. If I had told the story from Southall Black Sisters' point of view, obviously there was more than one sister. So whose story am I telling?' He continued: 'Even if you tell a true story, a true story is never really a true story. How do you define the truth? None of us were really there and obviously the recollections of people who were there have changed now. Ultimately I do have to tell an engaging story. If I can't tell an engaging story no matter what cause is at stake, nobody will see it.' Referring to Ahluwalia, Rai, a former Miss World said: 'To agree to have a movie made takes a lot of guts. I hope Kiranjit is happy with it. But we really weren't there. We don't know exactly what she went through.' Some believe Provoked proves the rule that commercial pressures force filmmakers to take liberties with the truth. FilmFour Lab chief Peter Carlton said: 'People are wary about the Hollywood machine getting its paws on things. It almost gives things a mark of inauthenticity. Particularly in a post 9/11 world, there's a real wariness. Like there's a yearning for real news, there's a yearning for real movies.'

At the very least, Gupta and Patel hope the movie will raise awareness of the issues tackled. Gupta says: 'It's important to record the activities of South London Black Sisters, that had a positive impact on all women. This film might make the biggest impact.',,1779845,00.h tml
