Petits meurtres entre ennemis: quand les constructeurs rivalisent d’ironieLes rivalités entre constructeurs donnent parfois matière à des actions de communication qui font le bonheur des internautes. Mais ces “guerres de chapelle” ont-elles une vraie influence sur les ventes?C’est un clip de Samsung qui fait le tour du web depuis quelques jours. Pas le genre de vidéo déjà vue mille fois qui présente un produit sous toutes les coutures. Non, c’est une publicité qui, dans le but de promouvoir son smartphone star, le Galaxy S2, attaque de plein fouet son concurrent Apple. Si la vidéo fait rire ou rend les fans furieux, la technique de communication n’est pas nouvelle. Mais ces actions ont-elles réellement un impact sur les ventes?Buzzer à tout prixLa vidéo montre donc une file d’attente, près d’une boutique dont le nom n’est jamais précisé, mais qui ressemble comme deux gouttes d’eau à un Apple Store. Des fans de la marque, dont certains disent attendre depuis plusieurs jours, récupèrent les dernières informations sur un iPhone dont ils ne connaissent finalement pas grand chose. C’est là que se permet un jeune homme d’exhiber son Samsung Galaxy S2. Les fans d’Apple sont intrigués par ce curieux objet qui fait tout ce que propose l’iPhone mais en mieux. Le clip ridiculise la marque mais également ses adorateurs, vus comme des moutons aveugles. Motorola avait déjà stigmatisé cette secte que représente Apple dans l’esprit des gens avec une vidéo vantant les mérites de son modèle de tablette Xoom face à un iPad uniformisant. La marque avait fait le choix de parodier le clip 1984, en remplaçant les esclaves gris acquis à IBM par des jeunes en sweat-shirt à capuches blancs, affublés des écouteurs de la marque, mais tout aussi tristes et ternes. Une stratégie très agressive, surtout de la part de Samsung, et à double tranchant. Si elle fait rire la majeure partie des gens, fans d’Apple inclus, certains se sentent insultés d’être dénigrés de la sorte et représentés comme des imbéciles sans réel esprit critique ou objectif. Clins d’œil et couteaux dans le dosD’autres marques jouent cet argument de la confrontation de manière beaucoup plus subtil. Un cas d’école reste l’apparition surprise de Microsoft lors du lancement parisien de la Playstation 3 de Sony. Un petit rappel des faits s’impose. Sony avait convié la presse et les fans de la marque à un évènement sur un magasin éphémère, sur la Seine avec vue magnifique sur la Tour Eiffel. Tout était prévu en termes d’animation pour convaincre, même les plus réticents. Seulement Sony, avec une arrogance alors habituelle, a parqué les pauvres quidams dans le froid polaire de ce mois de mars 2007 pour regarder OSS 117 sur un écran géant pendant que les VIP engloutissaient les petits fours et le champagne, loin du bas-peuple.C’est à ce moment précis de désespoir pour les fans de Playstation qu’une péniche habillée aux couleurs vertes de la Xbox est passée plusieurs fois devant cet évènement on ne peut plus guindé, avec une banderole géante “Xbox 360 loves you”. Rire dans l’assistance, et agacement de la part des responsables de Sony, qui sont eux aussi devenus verts de rage selon les différentes images prises ce jour-là.Samsung aussi, décidément très à l’aise quand il s’agit de taper sur son ennemi juré Apple, a proposé des Samsung Galaxy S2 à seulement deux dollars, à quelques mètres seulement de l’Apple Store de Sydney, où se ruaient des flots de consommateurs prêts à payer leur dîme annuelle pour obtenir le sacro-saint iPhone 4S.Une “guerre de chapelles” sans effet sur les ventesCes différentes actions de communication sont en général plébiscitées par les internautes, qui raffolent de voir des entreprises jouer à la “guéguerre” par voie de publicité. Mais ces coups marketing sont en général bien vains dans l’esprit d’un client, qui a besoin de plus qu’une vidéo pour choisir son produit. Si l’on revient sur quelques uns de ses exemples, chiffres à l’appui, on remarque que ces vidéos ou actions n’ont aucune influence. Si dans le monde, Samsung a réussi à vendre quelques 10 millions de Galaxy S2, Apple quant à lui écoule 4 millions d’iPhone 4S en un seul week-end et dans seulement 7 pays. Pareil pour Motorola dont les chiffres de ventes de sa Xoom, avec seulement 100 000 exemplaires dans le monde, sont absolument ridicules face aux 46 millions d’iPad en circulation.À lire aussiWindows 10 : toutes les nouveautés du nouvel OSMicrosoft également, bien que sa Xbox 360 soit passée devant sur un plan mondial avec 57,3 millions d’exemplaires vendus contre 56 millions pour la Playstation 3 (chiffres parus en novembre 2011), cette dernière résiste en France, où sa côte de popularité n’a jamais faibli et dépasse la Xbox d’une courte tête.La qualité comme seul argument valable Si Microsoft a pu talonner de très près la machine de Sony c’est grâce à son service en ligne remarquable et ses licences porteuses, en plus du fait d’une sortie de la machine plus précoce face à ses concurrents. Si la Playstation 3 a su s’imposer, c’est grâce à une longue histoire dans le domaine du jeu vidéo. Si Apple est leader de la téléphonie en termes d’image, c’est le coup d’avance qu’elle a pris sur le smartphone grand public qui lui a permis de marquer les esprits.Faire rire les internautes est une chose mais tous ces exemples montrent que le consommateur se fait son opinion sur des faits, sur la qualité des services proposés et leur viabilité dans la durée, et non face à une publicité d’une 1 minute 30. Reste aux suiveurs à parfaire leurs expériences utilisateurs et ne pas chercher à tout prix la bataille rangée, quitte à froisser des clients potentiels.Le 25 novembre 2011 à 09:06 • Maxime Lambert
Six petits séismes touchent le sud-est de la FranceDans la nuit de samedi à dimanche, six légers tremblements de terre ont été ressentis dans les Alpes et la Côte d’Azur. Le plus puissant était à 4 sur l’échelle de Richter. Ils n’ont fait ni dégât ni victime. La terre a tremblé ! Six séismes de faible intensité ont été détectés dans le sud-est de la France dans la nuit de samedi à dimanche. Ils n’ont heureusement fait ni victime ni dégât, même si les pompiers ont été mobilisés suite aux nombreux appels d’habitants paniqués.Au niveau des Alpes et de la Côte d’Azur, le séisme le plus puissant a atteint 4 sur l’échelle de Richter tandis que celui ressenti à Annecy ne pointait qu’à 2,7 sur la même échelle. Les petits tremblements de terre sont relativement fréquents dans la région mais le dernier à avoir causé de gros dégâts a eu lieu en 1996. Il avait provoqué l’équivalent de 50 millions d’euros de dommages divers et était de magnitude 5. Le 7 avril 2013 à 19:15 • Maxime Lambert
Paulo Dybala was naturally thrilled with his “dream” match-winner as Juventus sealed an impressive 1-0 win at Manchester United in the Champions LeagueThe Argentine forward scored the game’s only goal on Tuesday night as Juventus maintained their winning start in Group H.Speaking afterwards, Dybala described the sensation of playing and scoring at places like Old Trafford to that of those you dream of as a kid.“It was a fantastic night and I’m really happy. Playing at stadiums like this and Wembley, where I scored last year, is the stuff you dream of as a kid,” Dybala told the club website.“We played brilliantly in the first half, partly because United left us some space. They sorted themselves out in the second half, as we expected them to, but we played a really good defensive game.”Despite a difficult start to the season, Dybala has now found the net five times in 10 appearances for Juventus.“I thought that he [Dybala] put in a great performance, I have to say,” said manager Massimiliano Allegri.Maguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“He was playing well beforehand in previous games. He didn’t play on Saturday [against Genoa] because he picked up a bit of a knock to his knee on international duty.“So he didn’t play, came back and did ever so well I thought.”Juventus will next travel to Empoli on Saturday for another Serie A fixture.💎⚽️ When @PauDybala_JR scored I __________________.#MUFCJuve #UCL #ForzaJuve pic.twitter.com/h7N0HqwQHL— JuventusFC (@juventusfcen) October 23, 2018
One day after moving Style.com under management of the Fairchild Fashion group, Condé Nast has announced a reorganization of its overall digital operation, fusing the Condé Nast Digital sales and marketing team with the Condé Nast Media Group, forming one multi-platform and multi-brand unit. The combined sales and marketing efforts will be overseen by chief marketing officer Lou Cona.“Content for the vast majority of magazine Web sites is already managed at the brand level and now the brands will also become responsible for the digital sales and marketing,” the big consumer publisher says in a statement announcing the changes. “CN Digital will now focus on developing and implementing the corporate digital growth strategy as well as oversee content and operations for emerging digital businesses.”Condé Nast says the changes are effective immediately and will continue to be implemented throughout 2011.Drew Shutte, who previously served as Condé Nast Digital senior vice president and chief revenue officer, will become executive vice president and chief integration officer for the Condé Nast Media Group. Integrated Sales Group publisher Josh Stinchcomb will become vice president of digital sales for Condé Nast. Both will report to Cona. A Condé Nast spokesperson says Sarah Chubb will remain as president of Condé Nast Digital, and will concentrate on content and operational management on the company’s non-magazine branded sites—including Ars Technica, Concierge, Epicurious and Reddit—as well as oversight of Brides.com and Wired.com. Chubb also will focus more extensively on identifying and developing corporate digital products and acquisitions. “This is a natural progression that makes it easier to go out to and make sales in the marketplace,” says the spokesperson, who indicates that no layoffs are associated with the changes. “This is about Condé Nast using all the talent we have in house to our best abilities.”Yesterday, Condé Nast said it was moving Style.com under management of the Fairchild Fashion Group, which includes Women’s Wear Daily and WWD.com. “With WWD/WWD.com and Style.com under the same roof, Fairchild Fashion Group will serve the needs of both business professionals and fashion-obsessed consumers globally,” Fairchild president and CEO Gina Sanders said in a statement.The publisher also announced yesterday that it would utilize the newly-unveiled Adobe Digital Publishing Suite to develop digital editions of its magazines. Condé partnered with Adobe on the iPad apps for Wired and The New Yorker. Other apps developed in-house—including GQ, Vanity Fair and Glamour –will be recreated using the Adobe system.
Facebook has community standards that prohibit hate speech, nudity, violence and other offensive content. Misinformation and clickbait, though, don’t always violate Facebook’s rules, unless there’s a risk of offline violence or the content is trying to discourage or prevent people from voting.Antivaccine content, for example, can fall in a “gray area” because it’s challenging to link content to something that happens offline, said Tessa Lyons, Facebook’s head of News Feed integrity. Facebook said it’s been using technology, human reviewers and user reports to flag and remove content in groups that violates its rules, even if the groups aren’t public. That’s allowed Facebook to proactively detect offensive content even before someone reports it to the company, Rosen said.The company said it’ll also soon let people remove their posts and comments from a group even if they’re no longer a member.This week, Facebook is also adding a verified badge for high-profile people in its messaging app, signaling to users whether a scammer is impersonating someone else. Earlier this year, as part of an effort to combat misinformation, the company released a tool to let users know if a message has been forwarded. We can now proactively detect many types of violating content posted in groups before anyone reports them.” Facebook execs Guy Rosen and Tessa Lyons 4:06 2 Getty Images Facebook has said its users are posting more in the social network’s private spaces, including groups and messaging, a shift that could make it tougher for the tech giant to police offensive content.On Wednesday, the company said it’s taking new steps to stop misinformation, scams and other “problematic” content from going viral on the platform, with some of the changes applying to private Facebook groups, which let users post content only group members can see. The company has been criticized in the past for not doing enough to stop misinformation about vaccines and other topics from spreading in groups.The new steps provide a glimpse into how the world’s largest social network, which has more than 2 billion users worldwide, is moderating content as users pivot to sharing more information privately. Facebook’s vice president of Integrity, Guy Rosen, speaks at a press conference on Wednesday at the tech company’s headquarters in Menlo Park, California. Queenie Wong/CNET “Ultimately, the balance between protecting people’s privacy and protecting public safety is something that societies have been grappling with for centuries probably, and we’re certainly grappling with it,” Guy Rosen, Facebook’s vice president of integrity, said during a press conference at the company’s Menlo Park, California, headquarters.The company said that in the coming weeks it’ll start looking at how administrators and moderators of Facebook groups decide what content to keep up. That’ll help Facebook determine whether a group is violating the social network’s rules. The company is also releasing a Group Quality feature so group administrators can see what content was removed and flagged, including fake news. Facebook groups that repeatedly share misinformation will show up lower on the social network’s News Feed. Facebook is putting women on the front line of its war… The social network unveiled a variety of other steps it’s taking to combat fake news, following criticism that its efforts aren’t working well enough. Facebook said it’s working with journalists, fact-checking experts, researchers and other groups to find new solutions to fight misinformation more quickly. The Associated Press, which reportedly stopped fact-checking for the company in February, is returning to fact-check videos and Spanish content in the US.Facebook acknowledged it still has more work to do as user behavior on the site changes.Users are sharing photos and videos that vanish in 24 hours via a feature called Stories. That makes policing the content challenging.”Now there’s a clock ticking and that’s actually a huge amount of pressure,” said Alex Deve, Facebook’s product management director who works on Stories.Users can also use text, stickers or drawings to change a photo or video in a way that violates Facebook’s rules. Someone could also string together images of a product, price tag and email to sell an item that the social network doesn’t allow like guns and drugs. Individually, each image might be okay, but put together it would violate Facebook’s rules. “We actually don’t have all the answers,” Deve said. “There’s a lot of things here we are learning.”Originally published April 10, 10 a.m. PT.Update, 12:17 p.m.: Adds remarks from Facebook’s press conference.Update, 2:20 p.m.: Adds more background about Facebook Stories.

A small camp in the woods near the Chester Creek Trail (Photo: Zachariah Hughes – Alaska Public Media, Anchorage)Officials in Anchorage are pushing forward with a new plan clearing away unlawful camps in the city’s parks and greenbelt more quickly. Critics say homeless people in the camps are trashing the woods, committing crime and making the city’s public trails feel less safe. But others say the encampments are one of the only options for people with nowhere else to go.Listen nowAs rain trickled down on a recent morning, John Weddleton poked around in the woods, looking for things that aren’t supposed to be there.Like an improvised fort tucked back in a thicket.“Tarps over the sticks,” Weddleton observed, “and a tent inside.”It was a small homeless camp, scraps of trash strewn about, along with alcohol and soda bottles. The owner was either asleep or away.Weddleton is a member of the Anchorage Assembly, representing communities in the southern part of the municipality. He is keenly interested in one of the body’s most persistent and hotly contested questions: what to do about people setting up unlawful encampments throughout public green spaces.As civic consternation has grown more intense, with increasingly vocal community groups pressing officials to act, the Assembly has budgeted more funds for cleaning up abandoned camps. And they recently passed a measure speeding up the timeline for disassembling encampments that are close to trails, ball fields, schools and other public recreation facilities. The details of that change are still being worked out, and it remains to be seen what difference it will make.Weddleton followed trodden footpaths that resemble game trails winding through the woods near Chester Creek. The area feels remote, but in fact, just past a small knoll is an apartment complex.“One thing that’s so offensive about these is they’re scary because they’re so trashed,” Weddleton said. “It’s just disgusting, I mean they’re hazmat sites.”On a given day, there are around 1,100 homeless people in Anchorage, according to the city Homelessness Coordinator Nancy Burke. A portion of them stay in improvised shelters and encampments throughout the city’s sprawling green belt. Many of those most familiar with the camps say they can be extremely dangerous to occupants’ health and safety.Trash near an abandoned camp site, including used needles. (Photo courtesy of Russ Webb)Weddleton strikes up a conversation with a woman dressed all in black passing in the opposite direction, and asks if she feels unsafe walking along the trails given all the camps.“No, I’ve live in these camps for three years,” Toni Anaruk responded. “These woods are crazy. Everybody lately, honestly, has been getting out.”The area feels scarier, more dangerous, Anaruk said. There are heroin deaths. Bear encounters that have sent people looking for camp spots further away. And there is violence. Two years ago, Anaruk herself was brutally attacked.“I was chopped up in Valley of the Moon,” Anaruk said.An article in the Anchorage Daily News from August of 2016 described an unnamed woman attacked with a machete in the same area by a 19-year-old acquaintance she accused of stealing from her.Anaruk was the woman. She pulled down the edge of her shirt by her shoulder to show Weddleton a thick red scar running all the way across her back.“Holy smokes,” Weddleton gasped.“That’s just one of six, the other one’s right here on my neck,” Anaruk ticked off. “Across my head, right here, my hand.”The young woman did not stick around to answer other questions.Nearby was a section of the Chester Creek Trail that tends to be the most densely filled with encampments. Earlier in the week, clean up crews from the city’s Parks and Recreation Department had cleared away most of the tents, tarps and abandoned garbage.Many people say the size and scale of encampments has increased in recent years, with elaborate objects like solar panels, generators, and wood stoves brought into the woods. Pictured here is a cast iron chimenea. (Photo courtesy of Russ Webb)Abating camps this way is one of the city’s main approaches to managing homelessness: telling individuals their camps are unlawful, then returning 10 days later to dismantle and clear anything left.“We cleaned out over there, all the way to Gambell,” Greg Jacobsen said, referring to a swath of land behind the Ben Boeke Ice Rink to the arterial highway where Ingra and Gambell streets merge.For years Jacobson has overseen municipal camp cleanup efforts. He showed off raw patches of dirt not far off the paved trail where trees have been stripped out for fire wood or shelter. There were mounds of black trash bags waiting to be hauled out, filled with “lots of clothes brought in, bike parts, needles.”Simply managing all the waste generated by the encampments is a significant part of abatement. For one thing, the volume is tremendous. According to Parks and Rec Director John Rodda, as of mid-July the municipality had removed 92 tons of garbage since the start of the year. And a lot of that trash is hazardous to health and safety: Hundreds of propane tanks, food scraps that invite bears and piles of human excrement that seep into the nearby waterways.There is criticism this strategy is fundamentally flawed, that it basically pays city employees to shuffle homeless people around.Jacobson touched on this sentiment as he surveyed a site that crew members were almost finished cleaning.“Because it’s all cleared out like this, somebody’s gonna move back in real quick,” Jacobson said with a hint of resignation. “We’re house-keeping.”The mayor’s administration is adamant that dealing with camps is one piece in a larger, long-term approach to getting people off of the streets, into housing and connected with supportive resources. According to Anchorage Homelessness Coordinator Nancy Burke, social workers piggy back on the abatement process to make contact with individuals that can be tricky to otherwise find, gathering data in the process.“We’ve been using the camp ordinance and the processes that go around that as an organizing principal for outreach, basically,” Burke explained.Burke concedes that many residents are frustrated with a camping situation that appears to them to have worsened. But Burke, as well as others from the administration and assembly, say that more individuals, many with severe mental health and substance abuse problems, have gotten off the streets as a result of policies expanding housing opportunities.“The visual doesn’t always match the progress,” Burke said, adding that according to her office’s data, homelessness in the municipality overall is trending downward. “But the residents are not feeling that, and so what I need to make sure I’m doing is helping them understand the long-term play. It is a very complex system.”Even with an overarching strategy for addressing homelessness, there are sympathetic critics who feel the current policies toward camps is unacceptable. Russ Webb is a former board chair of the Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority spent decades with the State of Alaska working on issues connected to substance abuse and mental health. He regularly takes photos of sprawling encampments along the trails near his neighborhood to report for clean up.“That kind of squalor is unsafe for the people camping there, and certainly for the people using those public green spaces. Including kids,” Webb said.Russ Webb shows photos he’s taken of camps in the areas near his neighborhood (Photo: Zachariah Hughes – Alaska Public Media, Anchorage)The population camping along the trails is heterogeneous, according to Webb, and he is quick to give credit to recent progress moving many of the city’s most vulnerable into better shelter situations.But people live on the streets for lots of different reasons, and in Webb’s experience there are folks with no interest in housing that the administration’s current tools have no recourse for dealing with. He believes the policy focus on long-term solutions has in the meantime created “passive acceptance” of what’s happening now.“What we haven’t done is focus on the campers who are young, capable, involved in criminal activities and victimizing others,” Webb said. “Other campers, as well as others in the community.”Webb doesn’t believe there should be an either-or approach to homelessness, with long-term plans on one side and reactive safety concerns on the other. In Webb’s view, it needs to be both.

Amid concerns over a demonetisation-induced economic slowdown, most of the life insurance companies in the country posted sound premium growth figures in November with insurance behemoth Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) leading the race.According to the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA) data, India’s largest life insurer LIC recorded around 142 percent rise in its premium collections in November this year against the same period last year.Total premium collections of LIC stood at Rs 12,528.07 crore in November this year against Rs 5,182.50 crore reported a year earlier.Notably, after government’s announcement of banning high-value currencies like Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes, economic activities in the country have been badly hit owing to the ongoing cash crunch. However, insurance companies have witnessed larger inflows after this move with LIC becoming the major gainer.Not only LIC, even private sector insurance firms seems to have benefited from the note ban. Total premium collections of private sector insurers in November stood at Rs 3,533.33 crore, up 49 percent year-on-year. Private sector life insurer ICICI Prudential posted 91 percent rise in its collections to Rs 740.88 crore during this period. Similarly, while SBI Life’s premium jumped around 61 percent to Rs 730.66 crore; HDFC Standard Life saw its collections growing to Rs 521.23 crore, up 34 percent over the same period last year.Meanwhile, collections for the whole industry more than doubled to Rs 16,061.40 crore last month over the corresponding period last year. During April-November period of this fiscal, total premium stood at Rs 1,03,404.60 crore, up 39 percent over April-November period of last fiscal.Interestingly, insurance companies see such growth figures towards the fag end of any financial year, usually during January-March period, as most people buy insurance products for tax savings during the last quarter.

A group calling themselves biohackers, from the San Francisco Bay area has created an Indiegogo project called “Real Vegan Cheese!” Their goal is to create cheese that is every bit as good as that made from mammalian milk, without using the mammal. The team wants interested parties to note that the resultant cheese does not contain mammal DNA or genetically engineered material—all that stuff is in the yeast, which does not end up in the cheese. The goal is to create four proteins needed for cheese making, and then to make real vegan cheese. As part of their desire to promote veganism, the team will also be making the details of their research public so that others can make vegan cheese as well. Also, they note that everyone on their team is a volunteer. The goal is to create vegan cheese, not make money.Initially, any cheese produced by the team will be sold as “not fit for human consumption” because as a food product it cannot be legally sold without approval of the FDA. Team-members are confident that once the process is firmly established there won’t be any problems with approval, even with a type they are considering based on human milk-protein genetic sequences—it would be easier to digest and would reduce allergens. Those who adhere to veganism eschew anything made from animal parts, thus in addition to avoiding eating meat, they also stay away from dairy products such as cheese. Many people have tried to create a palatable substitute, but most would agree, the results have been less than satisfactory. In this new effort, the researchers are attempting to recreate the process from the beginning by mimicking Mother Nature, without involving cows. They have been engineering milk-protein genetic sequences and inserting them into baker’s yeast, which is then used to create cheese in the usual way, i.e. adding sugar, water, oil, etc. and then allowing fermenting to take place.The effort is still apparently in the beginning stages, and costs a lot of money, hence the Indiegogo campaign—they team is looking for $15,000 in backing (which they’ve already surpassed) to further develop the process which will involve learning about whether the cheeses that are made will taste good, feel good in the mouth and of course whether it might be possible to mass produce the result so that it can be sold alongside regular cheeses in grocery stores (pending FDA approval, of course.)

KhanPankaj TripathiVineet SinghNawazuddin SiddiquiHuma QureshiAnurita JhaJaideep Ahlawat Rating: **** Gangs Of Wasseypur is a sprawlingexuberantferociously ambitious piece of filmmakingwhich hits most of its marks It reunites Anurag Kashyap with exactly the kind of style he is most comfortable with: hyper-masculinehyper-realgoing for the jugular Its not so much about gangsas about men who are pushed into gangstergiri as a thing to live by; as you go alongyou see that Wasseypur is not just a placebut a state of mindwhich roars and strikes after each deceptively quiet patch I liked most of GangsPart Oneenormously This is a tale with a long arc From 1941 to the present day (it breaks off in the middle; the rest of it will come to theatres next monthin the second part) It tells us how coal (koylamuch more poetic) was one of the countrys precious natural resources which was captured for the betterment of few: first by the British overlordsand then by the local mafiawhich hijacked the khadaans (mines) and monstrous gains and became the resident fat cats In the first flush of azaadithose who thought their lives were going to get better were proved miserably wrong Those who toiled and laboured became poorerthose who lorded over the worker drones with swordsand lathis and brute forceflourished Theres history hereof the kind almost never attempted by Hindi cinemabuoyed beautifully by geography: the locations are part of the pleasures of the film It is in a setting like this that Wasseypur introduces us to its passel of charactersand the two men whose enmity will decide the fate of their families and foes Its all very Godfather-likein its vowing of vengeanceand settling of scoresalso reminding you of movies featuring the American wild west where lawlessness was rampantand the law was decidedly an ass Sardar Khan (Bajpai) has fixed his beady eye on Ramadhir Singh (Dhulia)for the latter was responsible for hisSardarsfathers death The story keeps circling back to this coreproviding us with the kind of authentic local colour that is hard to find in manufactured Bollywood The language is earthyrobustfilled with profanities (even the women swear fluently) Theres a particular invocation of a maternal private part and the violence to be wreaked upon it that immediately fixes the place and the people: you will never hear the phrase in any place other than in some parts of UP and Bihar The dialogue is one of the high points of the film: I was watching out for faux rusticitygiven Bollywoods penchant to slip into this lingo and massacre itbut there are very few slipsand minuscule at that Which brings us to the primary delightthe people who speak these lines The casting is spot onwith every small character leaving an impact I like that neither Bajpai nor Dhulia are made bigger than they are: they are who they are This is Bajpais bestbetter by far than Satyaand you can feel his ravenous delight as he slides into his part: Sardar is a complex mix of a rutting macho male whose sexual needs sometimes seem to overwhelm his desire to decimate his enemybut he understands the practical considerations of having to liveand let livetill the time is right Dhulia is astonishingly good as the man who grabs power and does everything to hold on to it: Ramadhir Singh is a man of his times; he does what he does because that is all he knows how to do The leisurely pacewhich can get a little trying as you try and figure out exactly why the film keeps darting off to one sideallows Kashyap to flesh out his characters Piyush Mishra gets the best part hes done till nowas mentor and keeper-of-an-eye on Sardar: Mishra ages convincingly through the filmwith a revelatory glimpse of the purgatory he lives in Sardars sonsplayed by Vineet Singh and Nawazuddin Siddiquifeel organically grown withinand the quietexcellent Pankaj Tripathialong with the other charactersfills in the rest In this world of menthe womanyias come and goeither waiting to be pronged by their menor delaying that pronging by tactics used by canny females the world over Kashyap has never shown such dexterity before with humour Gangs is very funny in very many placesand a lot of that bawdydripping-with-steamy-desire humour comes from Sardars interactions with his women: Nagma (Richa Chadda) as his firebrand wife and Durga (Reema Sen)the other womanwhose scorn proves lethal More
