Selvi catches Karikaalan out -- often, on the edge of doing something synthetic; something self-conscious; something naughty. And there's Nana Patekar's Haridev Abhyankar who responds to Kaala's idealistic musings with a 'Tell me something new. Instead, we watch Patekar slowly, with every passing frame, being turned into a comic-book villianette. Abhyankar is packaged as a Social Germophobe with power in his eyes and who analyses his election defeat with a quip that runs parallel to his mythology: He works effectively as a distant danger, when shot away from us, or when laughing derisively through big hoardings, laughing often at men his goons are in pursuit of.
Yet, as we get up-close, Abhyankar's power and stature seem to diminish, and by the end, Patekar achieves the distinction of overacting through his pauses. Haridev Abhyankar is the caricature that the Twitter Liberals are holding up as the Right Wing figurehead that Kaala successfully destroys. What these artless souls don't realise, on a very basic level, is that a Modi or a Trump or an ayatollah is not the cause, but the effect; that they are merely front-men for the divisions that have now become integral elements of the modern world.
What those brilliant Malayalam films of the last three years or a film like Hansal Mehta's Omerta seem to instinctively understand is that only good art -- and not polemics -- has the power to get at the paranoia propagated by the right-wing; and they get at it by portraying these attitudes from inside out. The time calls for us to not run down the men we hate, but to make our stories about them ; and it calls for us to go deeper into ideologies we don't empathise with naturally.
Good art is left-liberal in the true sense of the term; in that, it never aims to make the world a better place: Only less one-dimensional, more profoundly mysterious, and more beautiful in all its numerous contradictions. And 'massy-yet-messagey' movies like Kaala -- which neither embrace their trashiness wholly nor transcend their numerous tropes -- are a great disservice to both trash and art.
Funnily enough, in trying to make a Rajinikanth film 'for our times,' without a steady accumulation of perspectives or a sense of discovery, what the artist in Ranjith captures is the definitive leftist disillusionment: That which is good for the 'masses' may not always be good for the revolution.

There was nothing better than watching movies and eating good food, paired with wine as the world around us had gone to bed. We loved all the restaurants and bars we had gone to, but if we could pick two favourites it would be our time in Gaiole Chianti in a beautiful farmhouse apartment called Borgo Casa Al Vento.
We were treated like Queens and not only did we get to have delicious lunch and dinner at a fantastic resturant, with traditional Italian drinks, but we also were given a cooking class, wine tasting sessions, a wine and chocolate bath and a lovely room to stay in.
Another highlight of our trip was Visiting Castelina, where we had lunch and dinner at an incredible fine dining restaurant called Ristorante Albergaccio, which was exquisitely presented and all the staff were so welcoming and charming. I must also note that I was surprised that so many of the places we had visited were so accommodating of my dietary requirements, including my vegetarian diet and allergies.
Dort empfehlenswert ist eine Weinprobe mit Antipasti. In Lecchi oder Radda oder Volpaia usw einfach hin und geniesen. Echt een fijne plek voor mensen die van rust houden. Erg mooi, maar dus ook erg afgelegen. Het huis was prima, het enige minpunt was dat de wc's niet echt heel fris roken chloor en wc blokjes waren welkom geweest, en ben ik zelf gaan kopen en dat de koelkast wat onhandig was alleen liggen en niet heel goed koelde.
Ik ben er niet over gaan klagen, maar ik vermoed dat ze het anders prima hadden opgelost. We hadden hele lieve oudere Italiaanse mensen als buren die er vast wonen, en de man speelt 's avonds graag zachtjes gitaar. Het terras is groot maar biedt niet veel privacy omdat het wat kaal is. Persoonlijk ging ik er daarom niet makkelijk met een boekje liggen lezen. Maar; ik kan de plek zeker aanraden.
De wijn op het naastgelegen chateau is prijzig maar heerlijk. De mensen daar zijn super aardig en de omgeving geweldig. De wegen zijn wel ruig, als we nog een keer gaan, huren we denk ik een auto om die van ons enigszins te sparen: Dagje Florence, heel vroeg vertrekken! Sienna waar de voorrondes van Il Palio waren.
Greve voor de slager op het plein en het jaarlijkse charity event op Castello di Ama. Thank you for your review.
A plumber was called to check things and the owner confirms all is now fine. Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Second stay at La Stalla, it never disappoints.
We particularly love the private terrace. The wine tasting at Casa Ama is a must. We spet lovely time there and want to come back in next year.

There was just ony one problem with rabbish. It is common practice in Italy for the bins to be communal to the area. There is just one outside of the Hamlet at Montebuoni. Guests can dispose of their rubbish as they pass by on daily visits out etc Das La Stalla hat uns sehr gut gefallen und war gut eingerichtet. Einziger Negativpunkt war die Bratpfanne, sie war fast nicht zum gebrauchen. Das Restaurant in Lecche war sehr gut. It is such a wonderful part of Tuscany with breath taking veiws as you step out of the door we had an amazing time. We really enjoyed our trip to siena it's really beautiful.
Such a beautiful part of the world! La Stalla at Montebuoni was so homely and comfortable. The property is large with lovely rooms and bathrooms. The kitchen is well equipped and we loved spending time both inside and outside of the house. It's surrounded by amazing countryside and wineries; and there's plenty of picnic spots on the property - particularly for sunsets. Loved the little town of Radda which is probably the closest spot for groceries and shopping plus little restaurants and cafes.
We drove to Siena quite easily too; and from there we took a train to Florence for a day. Recommend parking at the train station car park in Siena - it's inexpensive there's also a big supermarket there. For getting around you definitely need a GPS or phone with data roaming to find your way around the winding hills and roads.
Would recommend automatic car too. The To Tuscany team was very helpful in sharing precise directions to get to the property though, as well as travel tips, ideas for wineries to visit and much more. We had a fantastic experience here everything was just as we hoped the accommodation is comfortable have used fantastic and the organisation by to Tuscany first class we staying to do the eroica which we had a great time doing nothing was too much trouble by their staff.
Cosy villa with everything you need for a home away from home! La Stalla is een gezellig compleet ingericht prettig huis met meerdere zitjes buiten waar voldoende schaduw is. Door de tennisbaan i. Het is een heerlijke plek! Lovely apartment, fab location.
If you want a true taste of Tuscany and live like a traditional Tuscan, La Stalla at Montebuoni is perfect. The little community, converted into holiday homes, is idyllic with sweeping views of the lush countryside. Ideal to escape the more touristy frenzy of Siena and Florence, yet positioned slap bang in the middle of the Chianti region which means it's easy to get to access all the stunning villages in the area. Add to that a swimming pool complex and you have a holiday which can be as busy or as relaxed as you like.
Don't miss a visit to nearby vineyard Casanuova di Ama. Owner Daniela will regale you with stories about her many wines and olive oil while she serves up delicious food and drink. Go off the beaten track to beautiful villages like Vertine, Montefioralle and San Gusme. And treat yourself to lunch or dinner at Bar Ucci in Volpaia where you'll be given the warmest of welcomes by gregarious owner Paola.
