  • Thanks for posting the link Kumar, am sure any of our members here would have written a better piece than the one published in Hindustan times . There were some unintentionally silly gems ( Byomkesh uses his intelligence and adept skills to solve the cases. What did Holmes use then ?) and this ( Here are six points where Byomkesh Bakshy is different from Sherlock Holmes. Detective...

  • I agree with Sajan, Pondicherry does sound like an apt place to meet. Compared to the other places mentioned, apart from the Sherlockian connection, Pondicherry would be delightful place to be. Goa wouldn't be a bad place either and I am more than willing to offer any logistic help that might be required. We could also rope in the Goa tourism dept. for this... Please share your...

  • Just to add my two bits to this discussion about subtitling - Same language subtitles are common now a days and it happens only where there is digital projection. On a reel, the subtitles used to be hard coded and we never saw subtitles in the same language, it was used only for foreign languages. I guess the digital phenomenon has made it is easy and it gives choices. I wont be...

  • Here's wishing all Holmesians a very happy new year. Many of you'll must have seen the new Sherlock Holmes film, A game of shadows {some may have also made it a point not to watch it } But be that as it may, the general verdict is that it is a considerable improvement over what we saw a couple of years back. Below is the link to my review published in The Navhind Times, Goa on 1st...

  • Greetings to all from Goa. Few months back we had discussed the possibilty of having the first ever meet of Sherlock Holmes fans in India. I guess that idea is on the back burner let us try and revive that again. Cheers, Sachin

  • Dear Jeff, I don't think that film ever saw the light of day. Not sure it was completed in the first place. I also tried to google it but in vain. Could you tell us from where you heard about the film?

  • Hi, While Sridhar's idea of Pondicherry is a good one, how about Goa?? Nice place plus it will be a great holiday for everyone. I volunteer to offer my full support to work out the logistics. Unfortunately, there isnt much of a Holmes connection to the place but this can be the beginning But I think what is more important is that a meeting should happen, doesn't really matter so...

  • Unfortunately, the film hasn't released here in Goa yet. Perhaps the number of prints are limited, besides 3 Idiots is still going strong. Hopefully, it will make next week. Currently it has a rating of 7.7 on imdb which is very good, with about 20,500 odd voters... Now how good is the film is a different story, but yes, with so much publicity, surely this film will evoke interest...

  • Hi, As most of our members must be aware, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's 150th anniversary was on 22nd May and BBC radio did a small program in their 'Analysis' segment.

  • Hi! The piece of news that Guy Ritchie is making the new Holmes movie is interesting. Sumal am sure you meant swept away and not cast away which was directed by Robert Zemekis. If it all Ritchie is going to make that movie, lets hope its a Snatch which was a brilliant film that he made rather than Swept away, which was a dud. Ciao, Sachin [Non-text portions of this message have...
