In, perhaps, the only scene that packs a tinge of tension, we find the Shehanshah of Afghanistan majestically seated on his throne. When he’s offered a plate of turkey with a dagger sticking out from it, it’s a suspicious sight. Before we know it, the said server has yanked the dagger from the piece of meat and jabbed it into the leader’s palm. The towering tyrant responds mercilessly, eliminating his multiple assailants with the sharp end of the very dagger that has gone through his bleeding hand. If only the rest of the film could retain this level of intrigue. Epic battles brought to the big screen have forever drawn audiences to marvel at the magnitude of its mayhem. It’s a cinematic seduction laced with blood, choreographed as a contemptible death trip and headlined by a bullheaded military chief. And this textbook adaptation of the historic clash between the Marathas and the combined forces of the Afghans, Rohillas and Nawab of Awadh, is a glimpse into … [Read more...] about Panipat Movie Review: This Arjun Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, Kriti Sanon starrer ticks all the boxes but struggles to conceptualise out of the box sequences

Of all the destructions of the dismal decade, history will surely judge the deliberate downgrading of children the most perverse. “Our children are our future” used to be a tired old bromide trotted out by every politician, but if you look at spending, you would say the old have been the future for the Conservatives. What does it say about Britain that the old took priority with triple-locked pensions, while everything for the young was cut to shreds – education, benefits, youth services, sure starts, arts, sports – everything? The “future” for the Tories only stretched as far as cajoling oldies into the polling booths at the next election. Since 2010, spending on children has fallen by 10%, making children the most likely to be poor – and the old the least: contrary to what Boris Johnson told Andrew Marr last weekend, child poverty is rising sharply on current government plans, to nearly 40% by 2022.

PROGRAMMING NOTE: I’m outta here next week to go do Christmas things. You’re not getting a Funbag. You’ll have to go mud-sledding or something. Deadspin founder and artificial Georgian Will Leitch will be your Jamboroo guest host. Got all that? Excellent. Let’s get on with your letters. Will: What is the best month to have a birthday in? Obviously, it’s not this month, because December birthdays are the fucking worst. Two people in my family have December birthdays, and I have the utmost sympathy for them and the token “extra item in the Amazon cart” they receive as a birthday gift. Even if you have a birthday in early December, you’re still ancillary to the holiday season. Your birthday needs to be 100 percent about YOU and all your glories! You must be the center of everyone’s attention for a full week of commemoration!
