silver jubilee in films for lal/ bergman @ NFAI

Versatile actor and star (see, tough to have both!) Mohan Lal celebrates 25 years in cinema this year and, contrary to its aversion to star cults (unlike the cults elsewhere dedicated to Rajini-saar, for instance), Kerala, or at least part of it, will be honouring him with a week-long celebration. This will also celebrate the Padmashree conferred two years ago, which went by sans jollity because of his brother's passing away. {more} {rediff celebration}

The National Film Archives of India, conveniently (for me, in the past, at least) located in Pune, is running a Bergman festival starting today. Wonder if this has anything to do with the move to promote Sweden in Pune.
