way to go Aparna Sen | R. I. P. John Schlesinger

Mr and Mrs Iyer scored big at the 50th National Film Awards. Konkana Sen deservedly won Best Actress for her convincing flawless performance as a married Iyer mother. Ironically a book on director Aparna Sen also shared the award for best book on film.

Director John Schlesinger (famous among triviamongers as the director of Midnight Cowboy, the only X-rated movie to win the Oscar for Best Picture) died at 77 on yesterday. I would also recommend Marathon Man, a terrifying movie with great turns by Sir Laurence Olivier and Dustin Hoffman.
