Karl Marx did not know what we know: he did not know that he was Karl Marx. Had this knowledge been available to him, it would have consoled him during the many moments when he wondered whether his life's work would matter to anyone, whether the sacrifices he and his family endured in the process of constructing the edifice of his thought would ultimately be justified by his role in history. Below we present a review of the book titled 'Love and Capital: Karl and Jenny Marx and the Birth of a revolution ' by Troy Jollimore.
The film barely offers an honest debate on caste-based reservation; instead the plot merely promotes private education, mixed with an unhealthy dose of charity, individual morality and traditionalism, writes SAQIB KHAN
"I would like to propose that the film, in its realist figuring of the city’s sordid streets and quarters actually touches on a very profound anxiety of the upwardly mobile urban middle class towards those spaces on the fringes of the city ( by- passed by global economic transformations and home to thousands who battle there for survival) that continually threaten to either spill over into the manicured residential and shopping spaces of the beneficiaries of market economy or to suck you into the black hole of its deathly abyss! In this sense Aamir is any ‘common man’ whose entrapment in this ‘other’ world proves to be so dreadfully fatal." Reviews Aarti Wani
