What others have to say about Upamanyu Chatterjee
  • "Some of Chatterjee's sentences, when he calms down a little, are very good: someone seen briskly and precisely as "desiccated skin and cannonball knees." More than this, at least Chatterjee's fictional world is also its own complete verbal world, rather than the usual contemporary verbal mixture of journalism-and-candy. (...) Chatterjee's first novel had a satiny language, rich but controlled. It was warm and funny, and running with potential; his second is less funny, wildly uneven, and dried out with effort." - James Wood, The Guardian (17/8/1993)

    • "The three generations that Upamanyu Chatterjee draws under one roof in this uncomfortable portrait of an urban Indian household seem to be bound to each other as much by bile as by blood. (...) The only silence is that of a sulk. Perhaps that is why the rare glimmers of tenderness, even of affection, are all the more poignant (.....) Despite the author's wit and humorous prose, the nastiness of it all soon begins to wear. The reader may close the book with the same sense of relief as slamming the door behind a house full of quarrelsome, rowdy acquaintances." - Theresa Munford, Far Eastern Economic Review

    The Last Burden , which readers found partly fine to its title, could not have been Upamanyu Chatterjee's swan song. The bureaucrat in the department of education, New Delhi, had after all enchanted us all with his fine first novel The English August .
    Basking in the success of August's film version, Chatterjee has now finished his third book. "It is comedy," says Chatterjee, "and it's about people." Chatterjee has not yet decided on a title for the 300-page book but has five names in mind. Chatterjee hopes that people would laugh. Is Jim Carrey listening? Rupa Ganguly In the driver's seat After playing Draupadi in the mega serial Mahabharat, Rupa Ganguly's next destination was Bollywood. The pativrata image got her nowhere. Recently she got another role, that of a rally driver in an 80-km-long women's rally organised by Goodyear India and the Calcutta Motor Sports Club. What if the big names in the game like Nirupama Parekh, Saraswati Nag Chowdhury and Debarati Chanda beat her to it? At the end of the race Rupa stepped out of the driver's seat and took the chief guest's chair to give away the prizes. Who knows, maybe next time she may win one.

    9. Tropicfilm > Features > English, August
    The debut film of director Dev Benegal, the story is based on the cult novel by upamanyu chatterjee, English, August. Includes story, cast, crew and production notes.
    Best First Film Gilberto Solares Award Festival des 3 continents Nantes 1994 Special Jury Award 12th International Film Festival Torino Italy 1994 Silver Montgolfiere Festival des 3 continents Nantes 1994 Best Film National Awards India 1995 "Begin each day by telling yourself: Today I shall be meeting with interference, ingratitude, insolence, disloyalty, illwill and selfishness" Marcus Aurelius, Meditations AD 180 "August, You're gonna get hazaar fucked in Madna" Dhrubo, 1993 "Hazaar fucked": (Old Indian saying) To be penetrated a thousand times; (syn) A bummed out experience. The Story Production Notes In his first feature film, Benegal has managed to humorously portray a character that most likely is unprecedented in Indian movies. As a result, this movie, while comical, also serves to shatter all preconceived notions associated with Indian films. It is a groundbreaking work, heralding the arrival of a new generation in Indian cinema. Shozo Ichiyama, Tokyo International Film Festival 1995 If I were to be asked which film in the festival gave me the most unalloyed joy and delight, I would unhesitatingly choose Dev Benegal's English, August. It is a delectable vignette on contemporary India, backed by Benegal's wry humour and outstanding technical control. I hope some canny distributor will snap it up.

    The Mammaries Of The Welfare State - Upamanyu Chatterjee
    Yatin Gadgil
    The author of this serio-comic book, Upamanyu Chatterjee, as an intelligent young man of 24 decided that his wanderlust was to be fulfilled by the Services penchant for frequent transfers to far-flung places. He has used his intimate knowledge of the workings of the innards of the Services with telling effect in all his previous literary forays. The present book is no different. Mention the Civil Services and mostly you would notice blank looks that say, "What do I care?" Mention the same to a group of people who have had the misfortune of proximate, prolonged and recent contact with the members of the species and you would be witness to the St. Vitus' dance or the more overt symptoms of the Post Dramatic Stress Disorder. For the Civil Services are a people for whom it is said, "neither kinship nor enmity is advised". From another angle, the Civil Services are in the most advantageous position to suckle at the mammaries of the Welfare State. Chatterjee uses a varied palette of caricatures and absurd situations to tell his tale. Confessedly, having enjoyed the black humour of 'English August', I was immediately drawn to the latest offering by the author. The story revolves around the protagonist, Agastya Sen, who considers himself over-qualified for his position and essays a condescending demeanour with underlings and peers alike. He is loathe to play the side-kick even to those higher in the hierarchy but the compulsions of the situation he finds himself in compel him to act otherwise.

    Second Thoughts - Shobhaa De
    Shruthi G. Krishnan
    Ingenious Indian writer Shobhaa De needs no introduction. The lady is bold and beautiful; sensuous and sensational; daring and dashing. De's Second Thoughts is a delightful tale set in the crowded Metro, Mumbai. A quiet and sexless story of Maya and Ranjan. Maya, the heroine, the dark but beautiful, middle-class girl from Calcutta agrees to the proposal of the Maliks, mainly to romance with her dream city and to throw away her 'middle-classness'. Why do the rich Maliks agree to the proposal from an ordinary family? Ranjan has the looks, is well-placed, has a degree from States, is loving and caring, but their marriage fails. What happens when Maya befriends her good-looking, teenaged neighbour, Nikhil? Read to find out! De is a genius when it comes to character portrayal. Her brilliantly sketched characters live on in one's mind. She's meticulous about colours, designs and other details. One marvels at her lively sense of humour. Crisp dialogues interspersed between fiction and harsh realities and an elegant style of writing spice up Second Thoughts As always, De deals with a bold theme - an issue to be pondered upon. Something only an incredible writer like her would venture to write about.

    The man with The Sixth Sense for breaking collection records has turned to the ghosts and super hero stuff. Director Manoj Night Shyamalan's new supernatural thriller Unbreakable is about a Philadelphia security guard who is urged by a friend to believe that he has supernatural powers. Shyamalan says he likes making people believe the unbelievable at the end of two hours. So what's the twist in the tail end this time?
