The wonder years
Three hostel mates get off to a bad start in IIT - they mess up the class quiz. While they try to make amends, things only get worse. It takes them a while to realise: If you try and mess with the system, it comes back to mess your life. That is the theme for Chetan Bhagat's novel Five Point Someone. "It is a story about the wonder years of college. We've tried to keep the soul of Chetan's book intact," says director Sunil Vishnu K.

Yesterday as today
Why can't there be a 'contemporary' tag to tribal art? The question asked almost half a century back by Bhopal-based artist J Swaminathan was reiterated last November by Devi Art Foundation's show 'Vernacular in the Contemporary'. Now comes the show's second edition. The last one was titled 'Working'; this one has two sections: 'Working consciously' and 'Working reflectively'.
